Crash at FIB Mission-BlitzPlay [WORK AROUND]

Question

Phorkz

Hi, having issues with an exact point in the game, crashes every time. It's the FIB mission where you have to intercept the Armored Truck, take it out then drive away with the garbage truck to your getaway car. After it's completed you get a call from Michael, directly after that call the game automatically character switches you to Michael, during the zooming into Michael's location the game freezes, exact same point every time.

 

No other crashes for me, turned off all my overclocks, still nothing, Verified game cache within steam didn't help, also went through all files with a check sum checker, no problems found.

 

Have tried it 5 times, exact same thing happens.

 

Mission is called "Blitz Play"

 

Anyone having the same issue?

Ok found a fix a dude posted on another forum.

 

Park the getaway car, near Devin Westons Mension:

 

Then drive east on the road, you will be close enough to Michael that it will not zoom into the sky, and just skip to him.

Trouble is I have no saves before acquiring the getaway car, after all these delays we shouldn't have to be doing all this crap.

If you haven't tried it already, you can just hop in your getaway car where it is parked and move it to where it will work. Game picks up that youre moving it to a new location and prompts updated instructions. HTH!

I knew it mattered where you parked that car and my buddy told me it did not!!

: Got it to work.

 

The positioning after picking up the getaway car is a bit precise, drive too far and you'll leave the instant transfer range.

 

The corner you should be looking to drive to is on the map linked below, right in the crosshair. Following that road down and right/south and east you will find a silo and ramshackle house. This is the hiding spot for the getaway car.

 

MAP: http://cloud-4.steamusercontent.com/ugc/544150006527477722/265C1CB5AED2A3E00C8481A6AA7A81E4038D4C2D/

HIDING SPOT: http://cloud-4.steamusercontent.com/ugc/544150006527478149/86A29C6566EC4962F0A807283B66F46F4D491AC4/

 

To position yourself to successfully transfer from Franklin to Michael after the phone call, you should park on the hairpin corner above, around the position in the pictures below. Image 1 will be how you will see the corner facing the natural direction, how you drove up. There is a wood guard rail that starts after the corner. Use this as a guide for where to stop. Image 2 is the view behind the position of the parked vehicle.

 

IMG 1:http://cloud-4.steamusercontent.com/ugc/544150006527477894/741BFD9A30CFCF8791FFA17E106FC3249BDA8064/

IMG 2: http://cloud-2.steamusercontent.com/ugc/544150006527478024/13128C3E55881896E65CE134B2045251C9E89249/

 

Hope this helps people along getting past this mission. And hopefully this is the last mission that needs such a specific workaround.

I having your problem, but if you remember the location of getaway car, you can re-position it by get in it.

Hi folks,

 

could it be, that we all have the start up screen disabled, where you have to select what to play instead of immediately loading the game?

There is another bug that crashes the game when aiming out of a car in online mode and it may be related to that aswell.

 

Cheers,

Viper

Seems to be confirmed. I reenabled the start screen and replayed the mission. I even had my old hiding spot for the car and it worked withour crash. As stated above, this fixes also the aim crash in online mode while sitting in a car and additional random crashes.

Thanks for posting back about this

 

Realize I don't have the PC version---

 

Can you explain how to re-enable this (or is this obvious)

To fix this:


"Go to: C:\Users(your name)\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles(profile folder)

Now delete the following two files:

cfg.dat

pc_settings.bin

Now load the game up, adjust your brightness settings and controls, DO NOT GO INTO THE "Saving and Startup" menu.

Enter story mode and do Blitz Play, don't worry about using C4 or grenades. Just play as usual. And you will pass the mission no problem!!!!

Good luck."

You can find it on your settings page under startup. It is the first option on PC. No need to delete your config files.

There is a simpler workaround for all those character switching and car shooting crashes,also missions like jewelry heist and blitz and so on.Just dont use throwables(grenades,gas grenades,c4) regular way holding them in your hand.Use quickthrow.Select any throwable u want to throw using "TAB",then switch to any weapon,aim with RMB and throw with "G" key.Heres a short video how to do,and how not to : https://youtu.be/aIH9AgytrQs
