Still plenty of "mod" menu users in sessions... almost every session I was in last night (4 or 5) had some kind of weather-tweaking or teleporting going on.

 

Even had a guy change the radio station (new to me) of the Ruiner 2K I was driving during Fully Loaded... while he color-cycled the vehicle. Left that session pretty quickly...

 

Haven't seen any money drops of late, but I'm sure it won't be long (as usual). And, if true, text chat in one session made it sound like there's a new $15 "mod" menu out that's loaded with new features.

 

So whatever hopes R* had recently of catching and auto-banning players clearly isn't working (big surprise there). lol

that happened to me about 4 years ago when I began playing online. I was casually driving the Elegy, and all of a sudden a player spawns in my car. But not only did he change the paint, he also starts upgrading the car on the fly. You could hear the engine change as I was driving :O. Kinda nuts but cool at the same time.

These were never patched, the text message exploit and crew message exploit still work.

That is the issue. The cheater has full admin rights with their program. So any attempt to report them only goes to the cheater, not r*.

The issue is the way Rockstar implemented reports. When you report someone that stat is sent to the player getting reported, then that player sends it to rockstar.

You might be able to report by getting their id name then going to r* support page. In-game reporting not really an option with the cheat program enabled.

Not sure if it was mentioned here, but I've noticed a huge number of chat spammers in public sessions (PC). They paste a text (in a unrecognized charactere) 5 times and quickly leave the sessions to avoid report. I know some people don't care about it, but I hate it!!

That's just someone that's speaking a different language. characters not recognized.

No, it's flood! They paste the same text 5 times (there is a reference to a website) and leave the sessions. I've seen many times in different profiles.

It's China advertising their menus and modding services. Nothing new.

Want in-game cash? You pay real money and get millions / billions in game, depending on the form of service (it's always cheaper than the SharkCards). Want RP? You pay real money and become 8000.

  • They flood to gain attention, it's a tool. I mean, they do not want to annoy you, it's not their goal.
  • They quit instantly to avoid reports from users.

I suspect it's the fully automated process. Basically, it's the advertisement bots.

 

Believe it or not, this issue is NOT exclusive to GTA. For example, you can witness similar ads in APEX Legends as well:

Apex is the first f2p I've played steadily in awhile, and last night, there was a pretty big problem: every third match or so, sometimes two or three times in a row, one squad member would just be a bot account, set to blast a Chinese language advertisement on repeat until the drop, then leave the match, gimping our squad.

 

There is a relatively simple solution to this problem: Do not end up playing in Asian sessions!

 

If it truly bothers you, here is how to reduce the risks:

1) Quit IGN, MP3 crews and ask your friends to to the same

2) Alter your gaming shedule

  1. Check what time is in China at the moment,  https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/china
  2. Calculate the difference between your timezone and the Ch
  3. Pick the time that doesn't overlap with the Chinese mornings and evenings.

3) Use VPN. However, it will increase the chance of lagging out :(

Their strategy may be working somehow, i´ve ran into less modders this week...Up till last week i´d run into about 5-6 every night in diff lobbies, including ones using that glitch to follow you into a next lobby, but this week 1-2

^^ Possibly; but I won't believe the war is over until I play for a year without any noticeable cheating going on.

 

The longest "quiet" period in GTA Online (PC) that I remember was roughly January 2016 to August 2016.

I heard that spamming a Tiananmen copypasta helps banning Chinese modders from lobbies - the Great Firewall of China seems to detect it and instablock the IPs.

Ehh, still kinda useless. First of all I highly doubt rockstar ever checks the report support page, secondly a lot of modders are spoofing their Social Club ID meaning when you click view profile it'll show someone else's profile or no profile at all.

Tiananmen Square Massacre 1989

But they often use VPN. Worth a try, but from my experience - it rarely works.

it works 100% of the time, but you have to type it in chinese...which would mean having a chinese kb installed.

Since when have they been able to fire at you while they're  invisible/passive?

 

Just played in a lobby full of explosions and this one particular player flying around in his b-11 raining down on me in passive!

Welp, money bags and crashing your game are (once again) in the mix. What else is new? lol

 

So much for whatever anti-cheat improvements were supposedly made, unless it's quietly logging data in the background for a future ban wave.

Pretty disappointing about this too :( but yeah fingers crossed they're doing exactly that, logging data and getting ready for a banwave and/or extension of the system.

They've definitely upped their anti-cheat game, as of 1.47 they've made it substantially harder to disable their anti-cheat, as well as extending the time between detection and ban.

^^ Interesting; will keep an eye out for how this affects game play in the long(er) term.
