GTA IV Multiplayer 2020 [PS3]

GTA IV 2020 [PS3]

 

 

The thread's goal is to keep the game alive somehow, host events once a month at least, give a place to those that want to be safe from modders and are still interested in this game. ( PS3 )

Feel free to post any thoughts on the game anyway, even if you don't play anymore

 

The game is almost dead due to modders and paranoid players that think any good players are hackers.

I have always been promoting the game, fighting against cheaters; even list them all and warn innocents from modders.

 

I am an old player who used to be top in the Cops n Crooks leaderboards, (although they didn't mean anything, but means I played a lot) also took part in a lot of events in these forums.

I have also been recording games since the last year,

here's the place where I upload some games:

https://www.youtube.com/user/LilJacob420/

 

 

So anyone who wants to still play this game fairly, feel free to contact me here in the forums or either via PSN: MAJESTIX_C or EL_FUGA

 

It is really sad that the game is seemingly coming to an end, as it is so abandoned. Only if Rockstar launched an update changing version, mods and hacks would stop working; at least for some time...

 

However, don't get me wrong, a lot of good games do still happen, thanks to people who are encouraged to organise and message others.

 

GTA IV is the best gta of them all in terms of game physics, driving, game modes (Cops n crooks, turf war, team mafia work) aiming, developed skills, game details, logics, etc... I really hope gta 6 will be a good mix from IV + V, because gtaV was a total failure to me.     

 

 

 

 

Some old threads for nostalgia:

Gta IV was a master piece, both single player and multiplayer. Unfortunately Rockstar moved on to create GTA online that is making them money because idiots pay real money to buy virtual assets within the game that resembles the Sims, increasingly. 

 

Sadly, Rockstar probably see no merit in updating IV, despite the love it still has in the hearts of the people who played it and still play it genuinely. It's tenth anniversary since release received no mention 😔 

 

Any ways, I remember it fondly with memories that will stay forever, I was never that great at it, but it took skill and so when you did something to out play opponents you felt rewarded, the mode Cops n Crooks was everything to me at one time. 

 

Time moves on though. Hopefully one day a remaster.

Hey

I'm Toby, 21 years old and never played GTA4 online

I loved the main game but when I tried to play online I found no one 

My wife told me it used to be awesome, so if there are people out there who still want to play I have the opportunity to play on PS3 and Xbox One

PSN: RavenRaziel98 

Xbox Gamertag: RavenRaziel98

Hello, EL_FUGA.

 

I like the idea of all this. I've checked out your YouTube channel and I like it, it's pretty much the same thing I had in mind a few years ago when I was thinking about recording matches in Call of Duty: World at War, also a dying game, so to speak. I've played that game with the same people for over ten years now, unfortunately a big majority of them are nowhere to be seen anymore, but there's still a few of us that get a hardcore team deathmatch going here and there. And my idea was to record at least some of those, upload them to YouTube with date stamps and all, and get a sort of collection of memories all in one place, so I can cry over them later on, I guess, lol.

 

Unfortunately, I see that this thread hasn't gained much traction and probably never will, but if at least a few more people ever post anything, maybe we can organize something. I might add you on PSN nevertheless, we might be able to have a good game or two here and there.

 

Cheers!

The game is still alive :D generally on Saturdays there are games going. Not like it used to be, but I'm told it's picked up a bit since 2018. I was absent from the game between 2015-2018, but picked it up again. Sometimes we get more than 10 players and start up a TDM or TMW. 

 

Another thing, if you go to the multi menu, and filter by game type when searching for games, i.e. instead of searching for all games, set to specific game mode like team mafiya, deathmatch, free mode, etc, you will find more games

That usually only works with Free Mode because Free Mode is usually the only one to have multiple lobbies up.

I had it work for deathmatch and other modes when they didn't pop up with the all modes filter. I think in general there are just more free modes going so you're way more likely to get them. Every time I sign in, I'll cycle through each one and do a refresh, and occasionally I'm pleasantly surprised :D and other times, I'll try starting a game up and waiting in the lobby. In 2015 could start a lot of TMW games that would grow that way

IV Cops ‘n Crooks on the PC has quietened down a bit, but it’s has an amazing run for 10 years. That level of time though your life changes. I’ve moved in with my girlfriend so I spend more time with her now in the evenings and less time gaming, one of the other CnC regulars is getting married this year etc. It’s a life stage thing, you find you have more responsibilities and less free time (than I did in my late 20s, if this game had launched when I was at uni I can only imagine how many days I’d have sunk into it). This said, we had some mammoth games back in November 2019. It just requires a little more coordination these days so lots of people turn up at the same time.

 

One thing is for sure though, classic gameplay never gets old. All those years of CnC, it never felt like it got repetitive or stale. GTA V’s online is a fine game, I really like the Heists, but to keep it fresh they have to keep adding new content. IV Multiplayer never needed that.

Had a freemode on ps3 with 12 players yesterday. Love getting kills on players by running them over. And the 10 different kill messages per weapon you use. Even killing players with helicopter blades has different kill messages. Iv is simply so much more fun to play than gtao.

I hate to be the bringer of bad news but this does not look good:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/12210/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV/?fbclid=IwAR1o_0rADPjosUvfJN4DvIyWZvt0DmKnutxTh5b9WogV56PzSRTvSRy6278

Maybe existing versions will be able to avoid the update on PC and perhaps consoles will continue, but this may herald the end of GTA IV multiplayer.

Just don't update the game or alternatively make a copy of your current installation, problem solved. R* can't shut down GFWL, that's up to Microsoft.

Atlernatively, check out CitizenIV. Zolika's made the gamemodes work on it.

This is great advice. Thanks about the Citizen IV tip, I will check it out.

Great idea! Sadly, couldn't plug-in my PS3 to play GTAIV and RDR (1) cause my PS4 is taking all the space, but as soon as I figure out how, I'll play a lot of GTAIV multiplayer. I weirdly miss that game in particular for some reason

The ps3 side is alive and kicking. People realised the game was a bit inactive and they started cooperating a lot more. Now there's less random lobbies and more organised games, plus some new players. This mean almost full lobby games happen in 2020, every day!

 

I have not much else to say, everything was said in my first post. Anyone interested just add me on psn.

 

I am sad if what I read above ends up happening, don't wanna even mention it.

 

Hopefully there's a way or workaround cause this game has to live forever.

 

Here's a picture from yesterday's lobby. As I said, good lobby happens almost daily.

We had a EFLC event yesterday. (TBOGT and TLAD) and it was very successful. Lobbies weren't full (never been anyway in the expansions)  around  8-12 players were more than enough to have a perfect set of game modes. Games were unique.

 

TBOGT:
Starting in free mode with some parachuting and f*cking around with the exclusive vehicles, then TDM games with different set of map and weapons, finishing with some races using that turbo boost from tbogt.

TLAD:
Starting in deathmatch with biker weapons, then a few set of modes as witness protection, lone wolf biker, TDM, own the city;  ending with a few biker races with bats.

 

I'll share a couple of pictures. Was having so much fun I didn't even stop to take much pics.

 

Players that took part in this event:
WASUNO
SHGamer123
FLaMe_BeAsT-x-94
xJohnSS

TrialMadness

Philipppowitsch
GrandTheft_Car
comeon12
JJU-HUNTER
Gamer05173

All the listed players are decent. They are not just randoms. They know what's going on, they can drive and shoot well. The games were pretty even.

 

Surprisingly a few randoms also joined but they didn't last much.

Still getting really busy lobbies, even 8vs8 sometimes (last week got 8vs8 for several days), some of them turn really elite, filled with experienced players.

 

Especially now due to the current global situation, the game seems to be even more alive and also noticed a few really old players coming back.

What kind of help?

If you mean about psn trophies, no help on that one I'm afraid.

Our crew don't care about digital gta IV trophies.

It can't be meme, Niko worked so hard, From Zero to Hero, and you want this inspirational quote to become a meme?

Yes, for sure. It works, lobby tends to get busy everyday.

What time though? There are really dead times, especially after 5 a.m GMT

Had a full lobby today btw, were nice games.

Was good to see @ajbns87 playing again.

Nice to know 'cause it didn't let me for some reason telling me "Unable to find game session. Return to Story Mode" or something along those lines. Tried twice on both IV & TBOGT, but nothing. Will try again, maybe was just connection issues by my end

ok then. Sounds like you have some kind of connection issue individually, and doesn't seem a general server issue. Check your nat type, sounds like you have nat type 3. Perhaps you're using a phone hotspot or other kind of restrictions?

Contact me via private message and I'll help you to find a fix.
