But to have the time count, do I have to be CEO/MC/VIP or can I be passive?

I spent 14 hours in passive, walking in circles outside, didn't seem to count.

I also haven't had my warehouse raided and I'm 99$ sure it was at 40% full before I set my guy to walk in circles.

You mean like does the timer count when you are playing as passive ?

I'm not sure about that, raids don't happen while in passive so I guess the timer is similar to it.

Try to spend 7 hours and 30 minutes as CEO watching the security cam, and then walk outside and wait 30 minutes, see if Dave call you.

Some data to back up the randomness of the triggers - all on PC, solo public, no passive, always as CEO, no club security upgrade:

Example 1

23:32:20 Dropped flyers mission completed

23:33:40 Dave calls with "Collect friends from Rebel Radio"

U6T8ZD2.png

No gap, Was taking my freshly delivered free Revolter for mods.

Lobby/Session was only 1 hour old, started 22:28 - had just recruited Dixon to DJ finished that at 22:50. 

 

Example 2

21:40:14 Complete destroy Bahama Mamas Supplies

23:13:49 Dave calls to rescue kidnapped friends

e8BoxDo.png

Big gap - In the mean time I had been transferring cars between garages.

Lobby/Session age unknown - could have started as early as 19:15.

 

Example 3

23:34:46 Dropped flyers mission completed

23:39:05 Dave calls with Recover Vinyl from the Dignity

irhoRuo.png

Small gap - In the mean time I was spawning a NPC Mod car to sell.

Lobby/Session started 22:40, so less than 1 hour old.

 

14:16:13 Was doing promo jobs - Posters

14:41:14 Dave calls with the Steal Equipment from AKAN job

YGiJpTq.png

Medium gap - In the mean time I was spawning NPC mod cars at Olson's

Lobby/Session started 11:20 ish.

But you also said time spent inside properties doesn't count?

Yeah, I forgot about that.

You have to spend your time outside as CEO. If your club stock is below 40% and you don't have lots of crates in your Warehouses, then you won't deal with raids while waiting outside.

God dangit. Okay thanks.

But club stock below 40% and crates in warehouse is the same thing right? Or do you mean club popularity below 40%?

Sorry but in that case, Dave's "Help the DJ jobs" can't be using the "raid" script that you are looking at for your criteria, because my warehouse is almost empty all the time - in fact in one of the above screenshot sequences I had completed a full sale earlier so the warehouse was completely empty.

 

The most I had in my warehouse was 14/60 ($100,000 sale) and I had all 4 Help DJ jobs offered to me with those stock levels. 

 

Obviously I haven't had a police raid event with those stock levels but I think it's clear those actual raids are the only ones that use that script criteria.

The 1st and only time I got a Dave mission I got caught up in a fight. When I eventually lagged myself out I was too late to save the friends from the hostage and the mission ended when I flew them back in my Buzzard.

I'm beginning to think it glitched on me. Or I'm just impatient. I dunno, whatever, screw this sh*t.

Dave missions don't have restrictions, they can happen at any time as long as you wait 4 hours or 8 hours (Security upgrade).

The only restrictions are to wait outside and not be inside the nightclub or a specific property.

I was referring to the Nightclub Business raid and the Special Cargo Warehouse raid.

Say you have the security upgrade and you want to trigger a Dave mission, you have to wait 8 hours which at that point, you are exposed to Special Cargo Raid or Nightclub Business raid if your stock is above 40%

What I'm saying is that it's not worth it to wait 8 hours outside as CEO only to trigger one of Dave missions.

Btw, I could be wrong about the "restrictions" part because Dave missions are literally popularity raid, I will say keep your popularity over two bars.

Then explain my in-game evidence. The "4 hours" is also bunkum.

What does special cargo have to do with this now. I'm going to bed, f*ck this sh*t, I'm so f*cking confused.

The game code must be really unclear. I bet if I were to read it I wouldn't understand a single letter.

 

Also now I'm pretty sure it glitched on me. I had my first Dave 3 weeks ago or so. I had 1 police raid and 2 NC raids since then.

It's a timer that start counting the moment you spawn in freemode.

You can't figure out when said timer start nor how many hours are left until the popularity raid is triggered with your "in-game evidence"

So it accumulates across sessions, or is it reset every session, because I can absolutely prove session times of less than 1 hour before a Dave call is triggered.

I said that because you are going to spend 4 hours or 8 hours waiting which expose your other businesses to raids

If you don't care about them, then just wait

Across all sessions, every day you log into GTA Online and from the moment you purchased your club.

Yeah, as far as I know it's random but you have to spend over 4 or 8 hours to get it. I assume it's continuance so you don't have to spend all of that time in one session

I got one of them when my popularity was high enough, I dismissed the mission as I didn't have time to deal with it.

Totally missed your post yesterday where you already said that a cumulative counter was assumed, sorry about that.

Alright sorry to bother you so many times.

But could it have glitched on me? Considering I haven't had a mission from Dave in like 3 weeks?

So let's assume you need to stay with the same DJ for 4/8 hours to be able to get a Dave mission for them.

I've been with Dixon since Monday.

Thursday I sold another full warehouse.

Yesterday I got a Police Raid.

So I spent 8 hours outside as CEO since Thursday/Friday (since my warehouse was 40%) to have a Police Raid within 2 days but I can't get a Dave mission?

Yeah, it's 100% glitched. I will never get a Dave mission.

I finally got a call from Dave since the DLC dropped, shortly after logging in and leaving my club. I simply had been grinding CEO Crates and the occasional Business Battle for a few days, and not doing any club promotions.

And here I was, 100% convinced they glitched on me. Well, I tried one last thing, Going back to Solomun, whose mission I failed about 4 weeks ago.

And yesterday, in a public lobby with a jet using McDonald's Wifi coming after me, I finally got a Dave mission.

Had to get a chopper and fly low after I picked up the friends. Not the most interesting mission.

Luckily McDonald's Wifi lagged out.

 

Do I have to idle for 8 more hours now?

I literally just got my first English Dave call, after running a club since launch. Had to grab a white Speedo from the Hi-Men club, and was chased by two Merryweather Dilettantes.

No, and I don't recall being in a session for only a few minutes when I received his call. I do remember there was only like 10 hours between the 2nd and 3rd mission.

 

Fun says they act the same as the swift deluxe one but if I remember it right my experience was different.

So you just waited outside as ceo in invite only?

And yea I was thinking Fun said they are the same but looks like he's saying for ED its 8 in-game hours and for swift hes saying its 10 real time hours.

Actually, I was in public sessions most of the time because I got bored of waiting.
