a pointing finger?.. really?

How is a pointing finger suppose to help??

 

In a game that doesn't separate servers by region so there are language differences, and has more players playing without mics than any game I've ever played, how is a finger suppose to help?

 

One of the best features of gta5 is its weapon/ music wheel, could that not be used to add a whole selection of emotes that are actually useful to communicate.

 

Emotes such as..

Swat team style hand signals, when to stop, when to attack..

 

Some quick line phrases, like 'stop' ' flank left, right'

 

Using the weapon/music wheel idea, there could be like 20 + quick emotes/phrases to help us communicate if mics or language is a problem.

 

Something alone the lines of hold right d-pad + L2 to bring up the options, then pick using analog.

 

 

And before y'all attack saying 'play with friends'..that isn't always an option, and definitely not a reason not to implement this..

.

Pointing your finger is a secret hand signal meaning: Run into the open and shoot everything!

it can be quite effective. especially because half of the players allready does this.

just like these have a meaning:

salute: me might die today my friend.

 

Dock: look through your sniper scope!

 

airthrust: hold position! let him come to us

 

Jerk: reload!

 

East snack: AFK 5 min, hungry

Pointing your finger at something and then on something else is the most basic communication.

 

Kids won't understand tactical handsigns anyway.

i really would like to see you playing the last setup mission of humane labs heist without a mic.

What im saying, is that the pointing finger has nothing to do with the outcome of an haist as its a random animation just like the others.

When Honking your vehicle can mean differently from "Let's go!" and "Come here!" depending on the context, then why not Pointing Finger be more helpful?

 

 

Also, not everyone knows SWAT code or army code means. It's good that Rockstar make things in neutral direction like this. Not everyone is tac-force wannabe...

I still aim a gun when I want to point at something. I don't believe I'll use the hand thing (especially during night time when it's more logical to use a gun with a flashlight in order to tell someone something like "You go in Buzzard. You fly").

How do you even point on Xbox anyways?

On 360 you double press the right stick.

 

Ah thanks.

I would understand too.

 

There are just a lot of things you can do in the game to tell people something like "Go there/Come here/Let's go/Drive that". No need to open Interaction Menu, scroll bunch of army gesture just to tell people "Let's go".

 

How do you point on PS3? Thanks.

 

Double click R3 or some people know it as RIght Joystick

I love it. Got myself some driving gloves and I'm pointing at things in first person mode.

This would be a good time to mention that flashlights do not sync properly, at least they didn't for me on ps4.

I have actually used pointing and its very useful as I don't use a mic. Team knows exactly what I mean. Point at player, point at where he has to go, simple.

OP had some sand in their vagina at time of typing I am sure... how can you complain about something that only adds to the game heh.

I just point up thinking 'I'm number one' lol. Obviously I'm not but meh my head my rules.

 

Then again why the f*ck don't they let you double click the left stick to crouch instead, like crouching on GTA 4?

Love the childish behavior..

 

If something is to be added it should at least help..not some halfassed pointing finger that does nothing to help communicate..

 

And if you had the ability to read beyond the title you would have read my suggestion..something to add and better the game.

But like any decent suggestion here..ignored by developers and sh*t on by childish community..

 

Geez I wonder y this game will be dead by next year .

So what point signal do I use to let team to stop..to wait.. Advance..or not go running in guns blazing?

 

Yeah...exactly...

Text the targeted person with one word.

 

If the person didn't obey to your text, then don't expect them to obey to your army signal, or even your command yell on the mic.

 

 

One thing to solve this is not army hand signal. It's actually a preset chat message such as "go", "wait", "drive", etc that will appear on everyone's or selected person's screen when you send it.

I read your bullsh*t suggestion, this is GTA not ARMA. You deserve nothing but condescension for your topic.

I honestly think this is the best feature I've ever seen in a video game.. period.

 

It's very useful for those without mics, but I've also had a lot of funny times so far doing it in just the first Heist alone. During the setup mission where you go to the Police Station dressed as cops, as soon as we all drove back to my place.. I hit a little hill in front of my house (the one near the beach) which sent my car flying halfway up the building while the 2 cargo guys stood and watched.

 

As soon as we finally hit the ground again, they were both repeating on mic "Wooah he flew all the way up thereeeeee" while using the pointing feature halfway up the building, nothing but laughter came after that from everyone in the group. I guarantee it wouldn't be as funny if that feature wasn't implemented in this update or in the past.

so you are crying because they added something that u find useless?

I know people on this forum are dumb..but god..can you not read beyond the title. .dam u people are dumb..

 

I gave suggestions and use army signals as an example...

 

Maybe use that grade school education and come up with better ideas then to just attack cuz it makes you feel like a big man..

I was playing this mission where you are going to steal two SUVs with my friend (we don't use mics), and she jumped in the SUV I stole instead of stealing the second one. So I jumped out of the car, pointed at the other SUV and she ran over to steal that one, so yep, pointing can be good.

Go back to the closet your mom locked you in as a child plz..

 

When mic start having google translate attached to it then you comment will make sense..but till then, mic or not, I can't understand people from the other side of the world if they don't speak English.or at least French..
