How to get a solo public session for XB1

Recommended Posts

Cameron Star

So I found this. It's good for people with an XB1 who want to do CEO work in peace and don't have any other way to get a solo public lobby without having a mile long cable running through the house.

 

It takes a few minutes but I tried it twice yesterday and it works, it's much better than swapping sessions for ten minutes and crossing your fingers.

 

 

 

1 - Make a playlist with one quick race. Down the Drain is probably the best since it is short and spawns you in the city to shorten travel time. You could use Criminal Records if you want to spawn in Blaine County instead.

 

2 - Do the race.

 

3 - Press X to restart the playlist.

 

4 - Quit when you get back to the lobby.

 

5 - Voila.

 

Notes: If you start from an invite or solo session, the game will think you aren't in a public session even though it says it you are. Thanks to Semaj 2JZ for pointing it out.

 

If you also want to stock up on nades and stickies and molotovs while you are at it, then use Gridl0kk's Fill 'Em Up race here. It will spawn you in Blaine County. Thanks to Jenkiiii for suggesting it.

Edit: this method does work for me also on xbone

I'm nearly always in empty sessions thanks to my diabolical connection, but this will be useful for when it decides to put me in populated ones.

 

Thanks for sharing! Looks nice and simple too.

Useful method OP, but XLag works nicely for me. I'm sure some people would like to use this method, thanks.

I just unscrew my coaxial cable from my router for 10 secs then screw it back in. That works great and it only takes 10 secs

I'm happy with Xlag, hasn't failed me. But it's nice to have options. Now there shouldn't be any excuses that people can't get into solo lobbies and keep getting griefed.

Will try on PS4.

Go to network settings and custom configuration.

 

Leave everything default until MTU settings.

 

Change it from 1500 to 800 and keep going and click "test connection".

 

Don't bother testing.

 

Exit back to main menu and startup GTA.

 

It may take a bit longer to connect but when you do, solo.

 

You may see the occasional 2nd person and rarely they will take over host duties and others will start connecting. Just change sessions to go solo again.

 

Sold 3 high end cars and 450,000 in coke on 4 bikes to 4 locations solo this morning with no interruption.

 

If you intend to play others or do dailys you'll need to change back to 1500. You shouldn't have to exit the game to make these changes but sometimes it's needed.

 

System Reboots are not required either.

Quicker and easier to just yank the router to modem cable for 8-10 seconds.

Why would someone looking for a solution for the X1 (its in the title) need a PS4 solution?

This method worked for me on PS4. Thank you! :)

 

Edit: Not sure why, but it wouldn't let me sign into the site to sell cars in this lobby.

Useful method OP, but XLag works nicely for me. I'm sure some people would like to use this method, thanks.

I used to go with Xlag where I would load into a game (in the clouds) and lag for a minute or two and get a session. It was still shifty cause I would either "lag out" of the loading or I'd end up with a lobby with people in it. R* did something with their servers or something a few months ago cause I can't get the same success without lagging for a solid 3 minutes and even then I sometimes have to kick a poor soul out of his session (cause I'm a scumbag). My net is a bit weird/sh*tty so Xlag can act differently for people. If this method that Cameron posted works as well as everyone is saying this may be the best thing the X1 ever got.

 

Will give it a shot when I can! Is the sesh "locked" for a good amount of time? Like, no one can join. The "gates" open after you invite friends in (if they have a good net) or after 2-3 hours where randoms can hop in.

I believe it's on the scoreboard screen. Its X on Xbox One, square I believe on PlayStation.

the PS4 method i use is...

PS Button,

Time/ date settings,

Set manually,

Move the year forward by one year (2016 to 2017),

Press X.

Return to GTA online.

Wait five seconds.

Reapeat above steps to set date to correct year (2017 back to 2016.)

Result! Solo public session. Jobs a good 'un and it takes about 20 seconds...hope this helps.

Good looking out OP.

 

Downtown Underground is a good race for anyone who has an Alta street apartment, a Pillbox Hill clubhouse, a Maze Bank Tower office , or an Acradius Business Center office because you finish the race right there.

When you finish the race you can like/dislike it. Then there is a similar screen right after it where you press X to restart.

I think PS4 players can just change the date on their console by one month then change it back again and that works just as well. Can't do it on XB1 which is why this is good for us.

It's random. I got a few people joining within a few minutes once yesterday and I had to start again. Didn't have anyone join the whole time I was on the second try.
