dupe for friends

Recommended Posts

ShayD

tried out the new glitch yesterday, I'm sure you all know the one.

If you get it working and are duping for yourself, a friend can join you and will be able to see the bodies ONLY while you are in the sell menu.

They can pick one up, but If your friend tries to sell it while holding it over their shoulder they wont get any money, or it will be greyed out.

If your friend stores the body on their horse they can then sell it for full price, great way to get your friends some easy money. 

 

- having a friend also helps bc it makes the horse despawn easier.

Yesterday I was going on with my work to help out a friend(lvl 33) a bit cashwise.

after a while I got the 20010006 error (funnily enough the first in the last week) and after I was kicked out of the server the pile of cougars I created was constantly visible to my friend. 

Anybody experienced this? If this is reproducable we could create a pile for a friend and leave, so he can pick up all of them.

I got kicked for inactivity one time and he could see mine, but another time I tried to just leave and he couldn't get them. Seems hard to reproduce, so I just use the sell menu option to make them visible.

Guess it has to do with the server error then. Btw you also stay in passive after the error.

For me I've had to try it 3-4 times sometimes to get it working, unless my friend is online then I can join him and it works first try, not sure why though.

The only time I didn‘t hit it first try was the actual first try and I‘m pretty sure I was too fast with disconnecting. 

 

Just wait until screen goes grey - 2-3 seconds later double tap to network - uncheck 1sec check. 

Hope it helps!

Maybe thats what I've been doing wrong, I haven't been waiting for a screen to change I just jump to network settings straight after hitting join on the in game menu. Thanks for the tip !

Didn't R* hand out permanent bans for gtao when ppl were cheating with the ingame currency? 

I can only hope for the same with rdo and contribute by report cheating when I get my laptop turned on.

This isn't cool. It's ruining the game if every noob can get unlimited money.

You know what's even less cool? When R* starts a ban wave and players who haven't glitched, players just like you and I, get banned, plus full character and progress wipe, with no option to appeal.

 

It's just not worth it and falls squarely into the be careful what you wish for category.

 

At least things like Express Explosive are locked to a high level. A level 20 can glitch $50k, they still have to jump on the XP grind to put that glitched money to any real use.

 

I know where you're coming from, but we really don't need R* swinging the ban hammer, it won't hit who it's meant to.

Worth the risk right now. The game is total butt cheeks anyway. Worst that could happen is we get banned and I go back to reading. I don't get banned? Might read anyway because there's so little content. Also, keep in mind the money is NEVER gonna get this good again. Take advantage while you can.

Apparently, PS4 users cannot do this anymore. Cougars unsellable? Or the whole duping thing may have been patched on PS4.

 

But on Xbox, we can sell Cougars and Panthers. The duping thing still works.

I've never duped/glitched for personal reasons; if I don't enjoy the gameplay that makes me money, then why am I even playing? I don't really care if other people do it though...

I am not saying R* intentionally made this glitch or released it.  But this glitch has made the game popular again, which was despartely needed after this update.  R* was getting hammered now everyone is talking about a glitch.  More people are getting hooked playing duping cougars.  Its like the old days in GTAO right now.  I wish I had more time to dupe.  All the outlandish claims of bans and resets do not take in account the history.  The glitch is a pain in the ass to do for hours, and no one is going to be reset.  That will kill the game.  The game needs to be popular to sell gold, not the best game.  If it had to be the best game, then Fortnite/GTAO wouldnt be making money because neither is the best game, but they are very popular.  It seems like they could have patched this in an hour.  It always seemed like in GTA dupe glitches could be prevent by making car sales on a 45 min timer.  Similar pelt restrictions could be imposed...in RDO.   But why did they never removed glitched money or impose such severe sanctions, cause it will kill the hardcore player base the game needs to make money on causals.

Imo it's not really like the old GTAO days at all, or at the very least it's a very pale comparison. Also I really doubt the game has gotten any more popular due to this exploit, sure some will come back to take advantage of it but they were ready and or willing to come back anyway and were just looking/waiting for an excuse (which the update that brought this dupe into existence was already doing). And of course places like Kotaku et al are talking about it, there's not much else to talk about in the game right now but it's still a current popular game well before this exploit was discovered. 

 

Also please stop peddling takes like "seems they could have patched this in an hour", it's incredibly ignorant of the game development process. For an example if the fix requires an actual patch vs an in game update (the difference being a patch goes through Microsoft and Sony before being approved for release, an in game update does not), the QA approval can take multiple weeks before being approved ready to ship.

 

I get that this sh*t can be frustrating but fixes to game like these are at times a lot more complicated and involved than you would imagine.

Thats your opinion. I like the game right now. I have no problem with earning the cash for what I want.

If you do, you shouldn't even be playing the game

Yes. Doesn't mean glithers doesn't deserve a permanent ban.

Agreed. Why even play then.

I wouldn't care if they did it in sp. I do care online. Unlimited money is a huge advantage. Every weapon, horse, pamphlet and abillity card is available.

 

I'm not gonna risk the headache of even quoting and anwering the other comment. That's simply too dumb to justify an answer from me.

It took them a week. 

 

Are all the various bugs that have existed since launch and new ones they've added more complex? I refer of course to the horse bonding bug, the stubble bug, animals de-spawning etc etc ad nauseam.

This. A lot of people certainly have no idea how big software projects are handled. It's naive to think that bugs in such a big game get fixed in a short time. You know how much time it takes in projects like this to even FIND the cause of the bug? and we're not even talking about a fix here..

a week? passive glitch has been out at least since January... they might have been working to fix it all along. 


"more complex" is hard to tell. I imagine the horse bonding being annoying to fix, since the horse has a lot of variables being altered literally all the time while playing. somewhere sometime values seem to get lost, that's why it resets. 
I dunno about the stubble, up to this day I didn't really get what's the problem with it. I think you can't change it, when you've chosen it in the beginning right?
And the animal despawning could have to do with reducing workload on the servers, I imagine. Like before the server is overloaded due to all the different things that need to be loaded (animals, npcs, wagons, plants, lootables, stranger missions, etc), things get cut out before the connection to the server gets lost. If it's completely overloaded --> error 20010006. 

Oh and that might be also why the game is running more stable (at least for me) in the last week. Cause there are way less animals... 
This is just a guess, might be different causes for these problems.

I wouldn't take free money by any means, not that I care if others do, so long as it doesn't destroy the game; I wouldn't do it simply because it spoils my fun. I like playing characters who struggle, who have much to aspire to. It's fun to want stuff. If all my characters started off filthy rich, with nothing to aim for, it'd be unrealistic and very boring.

 

I have a well-off character in GTAO that I started years ago. I stopped playing eventually but went back again on another account with a down-and-out rank 1 character modeled after Frank Gallagher (Shameless). The other character has several properties, a deluxo, bunker, etc etc, but I have more fun with the homeless drunk/chainsmoker who steals cars to get drunk. Besides, it's more of a challenge and more exciting staying alive.

 

This game is even better imo because of the many rpg elements (eating, drinking, washing, drug-use, taking care of the horse, fishing, hunting, etc.), and numerous ways to approach the struggle of prospering. To prosper quick and easy-like would spoil everything. So what if I'm at a slight disadvantage against other players...I laugh hard when I'm gunned down, it's a rush just to fight whether I win or lose doesn't matter much. It's hilarious when my character is blown away and ragdolls with limbs flailing lol. I don't need to win fights just to get satisfaction from a game. Hell, some of my characters are just downright losers to begin with, by design, it makes 'em more fun to play sometimes. All of 'em have flaws, it makes 'em interesting to me.

 

I don't mean to put down those who derive their fun from a sense of accomplishment however, not at all. To each his own. So I don't care the least if others glitch, to me it seems like it would be tedious and repetitive, more of a chore than a good time. But if that's what they like, and it doesn't hurt the game or cause a problem for other players, more power to 'em.

One person's autoaim trash is another person's treasure after all.

 

Personally, I like the game. I just hope things get better soon. A little extra cash in my pocket ain't gonna change anything. I literally log on hoping for autoaim trash to L2 me.

I was talking about the duping glitch which as far as I know was made known last Saturday, the passive mode glitch was since Feb 8th. Again, as far I can tell. 

 

It's strange that numerous bugs exist for months on end, some since launch, yet a glitch where a player can benefit by making money in ways they are not intended to is fixed extremely quickly.

 

If they can't control a third of a flock of birds de-spawning after being shot down because of other requirements in the lobby then it really doesn't bode well for adding things to the game on future if they already are unable to cope with loading demands as it is!

It's about the game not you. Slippery works well but since the nerf it's just ridiculous. Not only that but now a lot more people are using "Paint It Trash" and my use of Slippery is becoming more and more irrelevant. The only counter to Slippery should be "get gud and shoot me." Freeaimers could easily merge into this mixed lobby if "Paint it Black" was nerfed against Slippery users.

The way I see it, the game is bugged to high hell. Horse bonding, clipping issues, dissappearing pelts, large saddle bags not holding the correct amount, stranger missions glitch etc etc. Most of these have been out since release, and remain unfixed, while stuff like this is adressed almost ASAP by devs.

 

If R* wipe my account cash or ban me I wouldnt care, I'd just stop playing and go back to the other 20 frequent games I play that are not broke as sh*t. I've only been duping while I had nothing to do on other games anyway, and it's not like we'd be missiong out on much. R* aren't in a position to act high and mighty, we're 4 months into a RDO BETA that has a microtransaction store, dripfeed and gold only purchaseable items.

 

I work 50 hours a week, and dont want to waste my free time grinding for pennies in a game where stuff costs an arm and a leg. If other people dont want to do it or think its unfair that's their own opinion, but my guess is people who are duping have the same f*ck it attitude that I have. I dont understand why people are crying about n00bs having money, there's still the rank requirement.

 

The game is somewhat popular again, because people might actually be able to afford stuff. This might be good for the online, given how it's gone so far. 

 

TLDR - free money, get it while its hot.
