Before I run the risk of it, can someone in a pc GTA session put a virus on my computer? 

 

I'm only asking because even though I have no intention of touching online on pc, it needs an internet connection to just play single player and I remember reading about how people could still screw with you in single player. 

No.

 

You don't even show your IP to other players when you stay strictly in single player.

If you mean your RSC ID then  yes it is the same. It will still be a new, rank 1 character though.

Wait a second, did I understand this correctly:

I have the game for PC. If I now log into the same socialclub account on a Playstation (I had a PSN account connected to my socialclub for the retuning player stuff) i can play the game on console without buying it?

The rumors about the toxicity and dangers of PC version are greatly exaggerated. There was no and I believe there is no proof of any injections that could lead to the execution of remote code on your machine. Cheaters may mess with your SP campaign if they know your RGSC id but nothing more. So, play and enjoy.

 

Adding -"scOfflineOnly" without quotes to the command line that runs GTA V will force offline mode. It should work now, some time ago offline was bugged.

Online already has been "suffering" simply because the game's free on the Epic Store. Seen the server outages over the last 24 hours - particularly for PC players? Yeah, it's bad. 

I was thinking to myself, "maybe everyone that paid for the game should get their own set of servers, and everyone that gets the game for free gets their set of servers" - it'd solve the issue, right? 😛 but somehow I don't think it's quite that simple.

I logged on last night and played for a bit. Sessions were full of ranks 1-5. Text/chat was quiet, no kill notifications, nothing. Just people running around the map doing whatever. No one even came near my 985 rank character with a 10k bounty or even asked for MONEY. It was not what I expected at all. I drove around and killed a few before thinking "Why am I f*cking with these peaceful players"?

 

So I logged off and decided to try RDO for the first time this year. Couldn't stay connected to a session for more than 30 seconds.

Well, game at least at the moment is completely ruined... In Eastern Europe it is impossible to play for a day or so... Sometimes you can get into some session, but very soon "save failed" starts appearing, eventually either crashing the game or kicking either yourself out of session or auto-generates solo-public session... But most of the time, can't even log into any type of online session...

I am very frustrated, because this weekend was rainy in here... I had nothing to do entire day... next weekends are most likely good weather and I can't play because I have more important real world stuff to do... so, would have been great to do some Casino heist etc... but no...

But when talking about new players, that depends what kind of players they are... Yesterday I was in several sessions, where either modders mass-killed them all the time... but I also managed to be in a peaceful sessions with low level people...

More to the point - I think modders are WAY more toxic than any level 1 or 3 etc player... And I noticed, that on PC, at the beginning of the year - modders were not such a huge problem (anymore). But it all changed at some point... At certain time - all of the sudden basically every full or near full session had modder(s) in them ruining entire session various ways... So yeah, that was noticeable and kind of sudden increase of modders... wonder why it happened???

Yeah its getting ridiculous now. I have not been able to play all weekend. You'd think that R* would have expected that a ton of new players would come to the game when they made the deal with epic.

Yeah it's really bad. 

Here's something else I would almost bet money they haven't considered... 
They moved GTA V / GTA Online update days to Thursdays some time ago. What that means is, if Rockstar put on a decent event (good bonuses, worthwhile discounts, free money etc), by the time people get to know about it properly and have a chance to sit down and play the game - it's Friday evening or the weekend. 

How many staff are working on Sundays, do you think? I would guess next to none. There's probably a smaller workforce on Saturday's too, being a weekend and all.
So the situation that's presented is "if lots of people play the game [and this leads to] causing server instability, inability to access the online portion of the game, saving failed, etc, there might not be anyone around to fix things until Monday". That in turn leads to customer dissatisfaction, negative reviews, wasted time and perhaps other things. 

I just think that Rockstar's "primary game of focus" so to speak, which should really be the most financially viable title to them (GTA Online), should have the Tuesday updates all over again in an attempt to help quash some of these issues, although not guaranteed.

Online is suffering for sure, every session is 50% players below rank 50 now, i already hated epic store with a passion, now i will hate it till the end of time, all these f*cking babies that are literally coming from fortnite, please go back, i really dont need 50% of the gta playerbase to become new players (and since im high rank and they're all scrubby kids that live for battle royale tripe games/never played GTA:O they ALL report & kick me because you know, i could've never gotten my rank in the 6 years since this game released and looking at my social crap profile's date is way to hard, seriously if the majority of these kids havent f*cked off tomorrow im gonna do something about it)

Not only that, the whole afternoon i've been having saving issues, and i'd be very f*cking surprized if that wasnt caused by all the epic store plebs. Honestly f*ck Tim Sweeney & Tencent & Epic store.

I can't even go online right now. If I needed the money from bunker x2, I'd be pissed. But I guess I'll just play with single player mods more.

It will be worse when R* themselves make it free to play for all. Shark Cards.

 

Hopefully not until GTA VI is out on pc.

Of all the grand theft autos... GTA 5 is the first one to be free? I wonder f*cking why... I just hate playing this game sometimes. It's like self respecting adults just won't play it... I put on my mic last night to have this great exchange...

 

Hey! Anyone up for some Blackjack? What's blackjack?? 21? What's 21??

Uhm, you do realize this is the GTA:Online section of a GTA oriented forum?

Im sorry that i value the 6 years of grinding i've done to reach my level & assets, and i guess im an idiot for taking things too seriously because i dont want to lose all that time and effort? I should totally cheer about battle royale kids reporting me for my rank, either because they think the game released 2 days ago or simply because they're sh*tty kids?..
 

Imagine calling somebody out for liking GTA on a GTA forum, despite the fact that your own account is twice as old as mine. Shut the actual f*ck up you idiot.

I feel like an idiot tbh. I paid for the game (a lot) and now it's free and anyone with less than 5 brain cells can enter the game and f* it up. I was trying to see this with a good perspective, but the fact that I can't log on r* platform in the weekend pisses me off.

What Im wondering, is there even an agerestriction on the free giveaway?

I imagine there are a lot of underaged kids right now how just got their hands on an M rated game without their parents having any idea what their children are playing.

I don't think so. There's no way you can safely verify everyone age on every country. If you put on register that you were born on 2001 or earlier you can get the game

But in matter of fact yes. The first interaction I had with a new player was a 10 yo boy from Georgia.

Well last time I had to do with their launcher there was no age verification at all. Granted that might have changed but I doubt it.

Does it even show the M rating in the shop or the page were you get the free copy?

As much as i appreciate the sentiment, this statement stings. Im assuming you're not aware of FiveM's history? google around a bit regarding FiveM & OpenIV.

We both idiots my man. You couldn't play a 7 year old game properly for the past two days, so now you're on here moaning about "f*cking scrubby fortnite babies" taking a free game. And now I'm in a heated exchange with a dude named suicidal_banana on a forum I joined as a kid. It sounds like we both could've made better choices with our lives.
