GTA online hidden package?

Question

Recommended Posts

Dacelo

What platform is your friend playing on?

edit: nevermind there's clearly a keyboard visible.

I think this is the work of someone using a mod menu online, there's no hidden packages in Online normally, and Rockstar would never just hand out 60 million in one go.

^^ +1. Been wondering about that too--saw it show up on a YT'rs recent post; oddly enough they didn't notice it or comment on it.

 

Would be nice if it were something new R* is doing (some new twist or extension on the existing weapon pickups--below), but suddenly collecting 60 million GTA$ out of the blue smells like "mod" menu cheater tactics.

 

...just another way for them to try and disguise what they're doing, and possibly fool some new players into thinking it's legit.

It you pick up modded cash (moneybags) it does not show a message.

I wouldn't know, I'm mod-free. But 60 million? It's an easy giveaway.

I got this too when I was in my appartment. I also had the message pop up, but only in German (I use the german version of the game). I even didn't noticed at first that I got 60Mio with it and I am very pissed off because of this. You can avoid the money bags but not this crap.

They're not money bags... there's many ways you can "cheat cash into other player's accounts" on the PC version of the game.

 

This is just a mod menu at play here.

If you haven't already, suggest filing a ticket with R* Support...

I must admit that the instant money deposits directly into player bank accounts is new and frightening in terms of how deep the new "mod" menus can go in their power and scope. I'm sure it has been equally unsettling to R* in trying to determine how they got around all their previous anti-cheat patches, new code, detection methods, etc.

 

Until recently, all my unfortunate encounters with "modded" money were in the form of money bags/objects being dropped--and it only affected your green "Cash" balance; not your white "Bank" balance.

 

Clearly, the people who programmed the new "mod" menus somehow recently gained unprecedented access to a whole slew of low-level code that they simply didn't have before.

I meant the in-game screen you posted. It wasn't indicative of any new weapon pickups, it was just describing the existing ones in a different fashion. The hidden package thing is obv mod menu related.

They can give you unlimited off the radar or ghost organisation as well as unlock all achievements and in-game items from their client too.

 

And with the tunables going back to Format 0 which makes them readable, I wonder if Rockstar are considering accepting defeat...

The thing that makes this thenmsot pucliar is the notification. Mod menus can't generate GXT2 text entries, and even if they could they would not sync to another client.

I'm tempted to do so but Rockstar says that you don't need or even should report this:

I think I just wait for it to be removed ...

Yeah, I think Fun De Panda's summary of the situation a while ago was best (paraphrasing his quote) that so far, R* is working on stopping 2 of 100 different things "mod" menus can do...

 

Kind of sends chills down my spine, but makes me even more thankful to now have my ports properly blocked!

@Andy Allways report it to the Support. As soon as you got an answer you are definitly save.

Agreed. $60m, there's clearly a mod menu involved. But has anyone seen this "hidden package" message before? What circumstances would trigger it normally?

The hidden package thing is the way the bank depositing mod works. They're using some forgotten function in the client that was designed to give you 200k direct to your bank account. Dunno if it was ever used in the game, it's likely dead code.

 

If you want to see what it looks like, this vid of my alt shows it happen:

Some redundant code being exploited sounds right. Hope you get your account cleaned up without any problems!

Support just gave me the copy&paste response about removing money during sweeps which never happens, but it's fine as I created this alt so I could play while everything's on fire without risking my main's rank or my legit money.

3 year old code supporting a planned feature that never happened is basically dead code. They probably hadn't added money drop countermeasures to it as they had forgotten it existed. It's why it's important to remove leftovers from code (see also: hot coffee).

so at all modded money receivers - you really play just as normal with this hacker money?

would you trust R* sweeping engine so good, without any fear of mistake (ban) choices?

 

how often the engine sweeps? im waiting 10 days :-(
