Change character appearance not working, just endless loading.

Recommended Posts

Natsuki

I've been trying to edit my appearance for an hour, but it just gives me an endless loading screen.

 

This banjo music is torture. How can I fix this?

I’ll assume you’re on PS4. Try joining someone in your friends list who’s playing in a different session, and then decline the alert to send you to that session. This works for the moonshine sale missions, so it must work for the character appearance as well.

 

If that somehow doesn’t work, try out Stranger or Bounty missions, and hope for a solo session. Once you complete them, try changing your appearance quickly before the game merges you with a populated one.

I'm on PC, so not sure the first would work. I'll try the second method though.

Declining a request to join a friend’s session works on PC, according to other PC players. Try that if the solo method doesn’t work.

I have the same problem.

 

I'm also on PC and i tried yesterday evening various times to change my characters appearence... got stuck in endless loading screen. So i thought i might try again today but its still the same.

 

Does declining a request work? (I can't try for now)

The way I finally got it to work was by quick joining a pvp job, and immediately exiting to freemode.

 

After doing that, the loading screen didn't get stuck.

Same here, im om PS4 Pro but i stumbled on a reddit topic and all platforms are having the same issue.

Another f*ckup by Rockstar, 1 thing they never seem to f*ckup and thats the gold bar store...

 

"It has become a larger known glitch since the update that you can get into a solo lobby by changing your appearance (on all platforms), it wouldnt surprise me if they just blocked it behind no connection until they can figure out how to prevent it.

Just some speculation."

 

Its just that the private session wish (many players want that) is the 2nd most asked future on the poll on the GTA RDO forum/website...

I had this issue, but the character creator eventually popped up after five minutes or so. Something from this update really broke the loading times for several things, because I also get stupidly long loading screens when I try to go back to singleplayer via pause menu.

Had this issue. I wondered if it might work from being in a solo lobby so I replayed a moonshiners mission and went to character appearance and it worked right off the bat. Y'all try and report back.

Maybe this is R* trying to stop the get into a solo lobby trick. A solo lobby trick used primarily to have animals to hunt.

Instead of just fixing animal spawns.  I recorded video last night of me just running around aimlessly for 30 real time minutes trying to find animals in a highly populated animal spot. In a lobby that fluctuated between only 12-15 players. Before the update lobbies that small would easily spawn animals. It took having more than 17 players before the spawns went away. It is sad we have to glitch ourselves into a a way to play the game right.

Change Appearance is free for a lot of people right now because of the outlaw pass.  So yeah, of course they arent gonna let us in to use it. 😛

Join elimination lobby, immediately leave to free roam then hurry and open the creator and it will load.

Funny seeing this on GTA forums but anyway...

I got this glitch today, as I was trying to go use my free character customisation vouchers. Am trying that eliminator thing now. 😜

But OF COURSE I get the infamous Error code 0x20010006!! 🤬

It really sucks that the players of r* games have to figure out how to fix bugs that r* ignores...fix it!... i just want to play,  why do i have to spend so much time googling bug fixes and submitting tickets...some evenings im on youtube and in forums, longer than im active in sessions...it sucks that playing involves so much work...very unprofessional behaviour from r*...just fix your games and you can cut all those support jobs from payroll...the cost of patching bugs vs the cost of support staff...its a business management thing r*, google it....

You can go to an elimination series (not sure of the others since elimination is the only one I use) and as soon as you're there, go back out and you can change appearance after that.

Thankfully, there are a few 'issues' that I have no intention of reporting to R* (or any player who might upload it to YouTube).

I have no issue with people using harmless glitches but it just annoys me that we can have MAJOR bugs that take months to fix and yet innocent stuff gets don't right away. I find it funny that money exploits and stuff like that can be fixed with stealth patches or invisible updates but glitches that affect the entire community need a content update. I dont believe it.

^^ Neither do I; much of it is R* just not giving a crap about most of the bugs.
