Connectivity Issues With Friends

Recommended Posts

Bakkerbaard

I'm going out on a limb and ask this question here while it should probably be in the Help & Support section, but that activity seems lacking overthere.

 

I'm having connectivity issues, but I'm not sure it's because of the game and I don't really know how to google for it. See, when I'm playing on my own everything's fine. I bascially get no disconnects. 

But when my buddy comes online, as he did tonight, suddenly after an hour and a half of no issues, I get disconnected from the game, booted out of the PS Party and according to him I've been completely offline as he gets the message that I just came online. 

Not joining his posse doesn't change the problem and the last time even staying out of his session didn't stop it from happening.

Considering the party and on/offline thing and that the problem didn't start till two days ago I'm not so sure this one's on Rockstar or their update either.

 

We both have the same internet provider, but he doesn't have issues. 

I'm on a slightly crap network, but seeing as everything works fine any other time I'm not inclined to believe that's a problem, nor has it been previously. 

 

It's pretty hard to test where it goes wrong, as all I play is RDO for now and the only one I play with is that guy. I'm kinda hoping some of this sounds familiar to any of you.

I'm aware nobody has much need of this thread, but I believe I have the issue resolved, so I'll add that in case one day our grandchildren look to us for answers.

 

I created the party.

There.

 

Normally my buddy is online earlier than me, so I join him. This time I beat him home and had a party waiting for him. 

Aside from one Rockstar disconnect (which did not boot me from the party) we had an issue free night eradicating the pronghorn plague in New Austin.

 

So far, case closed. Thank you and goodnight.

Try the venison.

Even if you do have the same ISP, it doesn’t mean both your connections are evenly stable. Apparently, him joining yours is more stable than you joining his. 
I’ve had a similar experience with a buddy in GTAO. If I joined his party, I’d get booted. Not the other way around. Turned out the dude had a cheaper and slower subscription than I did and ran a few torrents while gaming.

Only just noticed this thread @Bakkerbaard

 

I have had similar issues over the years while playing GTAO. Back before my lone wolf days, I played regularly with crews and I always had issues when in Parties. I've had several ISPs, played from several locations, always the same issues with dropped connections and disconnects.

 

The only thing that has ever made any difference is me creating the Party.

 

I've never been much of a fan of bring on mic while gaming, so I've never had much of an incentive to look into the issue, so I've no idea why this has been the case and I've no idea whether or not there is a fix.

 

Just thought I'd share as I've had similar issues over the last few years.

I usually don't have a mic on myself, but I know this guy personally so he already knows I say dumb sh*t.

 

Anyway, as far as the issue is concerned I'm just doing the politician thing too: fix the problem, not the cause. ;o)
