I don't know, man. I've seen plenty of level 150's who have no clue how to complete contact missions. 

Or following basic on screen or audio instructions for that matter.

... <trying his hardest to get me even more bothered by his sh*t> ....

 

Let me put this in very basic terms.
- I have played this game for years, got lots of online friendships in it, its bscly my social media.

- Some steam-detail stealing autist and his chinese buttbuddy's decide that GTA:Online isnt big enough of a cesspool of cheaters and griefers, surely we need an entire generation of battle royale kids to join

- So i've been actively looking away, whatever man, im just minding my own sh*t doing bunker sales, but

- I CANT f*ckING COMPLETE ANY BUNKER SALE/ENJOY ANY RACE/FREEMODE AT ALL BECAUSE ALL THESE LOW LEVEL SCRUBS INSTA-KICK ME BECAUSE OF MY LEVEL


But no, you're saying its me thats the problem? i've made poor choices in life, im an idiot, etc? im sorry dude but either you're either a massive cancerous troll or a f*cking retard, now please dont quote me again because f*ck you so much kid

When FiveM first released it used R* servers, R* sent cease and desist, FiveM beeing a bunch of edgelord russians went 'LOL R* YOU CANT GET US CUZ WE RUSSIAN' then R* lawyers flexed by sending legal documents to their home addresses & banning everybody involved from social club, the FiveM devs got scared and they actually blamed OpenIV for them using the R* GTA:Online server backend in FiveM.... (Total bs if you have even the slightest whiff of a clue on how to mod GTA games)

Take2 being Take2 instantly told OpenIV to stop, that guy actually respecting laws stopped development immediately, then for like a month there was bscly no more modding of GTA games allowed at all, people flipping tables about that everywhere and even more russians started making cheats for GTA:Online because 'fighting capitalism'.

Eventually FiveM got axed by one of the project members who had been getting doxed because of all this, and then R* told Take2 to chill the f*ck out, and we got OpenIV back, a few months later FiveM relaunched 'with new team members' (not) and no longer using R* servers.

Moral of the story, FiveM tried to throw modding as a whole under the bus because they didnt know what they were doing with the native engine functions and sure as hell didnt want to take blame for their actions, FiveM is anything but the best thing to ever happen to GTA. OpenIV, MTA, SAMP, those are the best things that ever happened to GTA, FiveM is just some overrated scriptkiddies who try to capitalize on success of earlier mp mods and will be more then happy to have GTA modding as a whole destroyed for their moment of fame.

 

Never forget.

 

Oh and fun fact, i know one of those FiveM guys personally from when i worked on a Maffia2 mp mod with a few guys and he (surprize surprize) decided to take the mod and re-release it as his own, i mean i get how lots of people are enjoying FiveM in its current state, and i cant really say anything against that, but i hate how few people know that the kids behind FiveM are scum from the bottom of the barrel, surely not 'the best thing to happen to gta'

I honestly think gta online will suffer from modding without improving. The influx of new players will mean they will want to get everything they want to catch up to the veterans. So they are going to start modding and R* won't be able to stop it. There is so many players getting onto gta online through the epic games store that the R* ban bots won't be able to see all of them. This will also mean that more innocent players may get banned. My advice, get onto GTA on a console until all of this is over

Probably the wrong thread to ask this but how do I make GTA full screen on pc? The box in the upper right that toggles full screen or windowed screen is greyed out.

I haven't touched GTA in the last 8 months but I'm quite dissapointed how much hate it gets when new people are joining in. I am actually happy to see one of my favourite games still being so popular.

Graphics tab has option for Windowed, Windowed Borderless and Fullscreen. Alt + enter switches between fullscreen and the last used windowed mode.

If you have one monitor, use Fullscreen. If you want to alt-tab to stuff on your second monitor, without minimizing the game, use Borderless.

The strange thing was that it already had "full screen" set as default but it was displaying as if it was in windowed mode. Playing with the resolution put it in full screen like I wanted it though. Appreciate the help.

More people -> great
More reports for my rank and random votekicks because its nearing 900 -> not great, not great at all

 

I can only imagine how bad things have become for people with legit rank 1000 and higher

That's only part of it. Because it is free - many existing players probably create some accounts just in order to test out thouse infamous mod-menus etc... New players I greet! I myself am relatively new (made account long ago, but started really playing last september) nad ever since I was in sufficient rank to help others, I have helped several reasonable low level players to make money etc... That's all good. But - I agree with you - modding is the worst outcome of those free licences... I was able to play yesterday for an hour or so and - every (more or less full) session has modder(s) or glitched players now... And it is exhausting... they ruin entire session - yesterday I was in 2 sessions in a row, where someone spawned several green aliens into my arcade...

Theres honestly a slight chance that R* did this based on Valve's actions with CS:GO, the goal of making it free to play could actually be to turn GTA5 into a honeypot (read: make GTA5 free so the cheaters come, so they can work on better anti-cheat) but considering their new launcher also didnt really do anything to combat cheating im not so sure they can even conceive such a cunning plan.

you have a personal problem with these guys, well fine but nobody cares right? however, doesnt change the fact that fivem is f*ckin awesome(atleast for me and many others).

A few days in, I gotta say, it feels weird to be lvl 400+ and being higher level than the entire 2y-man lobby COMBINED (humble brag disguised as wtf am I doing with my life). 

 

That said I like the new players. They have such good spirit to learning new things, they're open to working in teams, they can make for nice 8-man Motorcycle clubs. 

 

But goddamn are some annoying. It's like there's a universal GTA Online noob guide that says "As soon as you enter a session start endlessly begging for money, that's your ticket to success"

I pity the newbies who will buy all the pistols solely because they are free, only to later find out they messed up their weapon wheel -- so they need to buy a gun locker to fix that, and then they find out it won't even apply in missions. ☠️

here's the thing, right, is i don't think anybody's upset that there's new blood coming into the game. It's a new generation of players to help the game's life. What people (myself included) are upset about is that a majority of said players are gonna be little kids straight from fortnite, or any kids in general who don't have money, so a free game is almost mandatory. And with kids comes endless hack/cheat accusations. Doesn't matter if I use my main account that's level 850, doesn't matter if I use my PC account that's level 250. GTA's combat is so basic it's really not hard to master, but most kids don't have the patience for even that. 

 

Joining the tutorial LTS to terrorize them is one thing, but I feel like Bunker Series and freemode is fair game. Of course when there's 800k on the line or i literally signed up for a deathmatch in the missile base i'm gonna play to win. I've had a few genuinely ask me for tips on how to improve, which i'll always help with where I can. But most of the time I just have to end up ignoring chat because level 14 Timmy is butthurt he and 90 percent of the lobby didn't get to join my team. Blame R*'s sh*tty balancing and matchmaking, not me. I'm just trying to play the game

Well online seems to be suffering really bad now. According to the status site everything (all consoles and PC aswell as the R* games launcher) is limited. No idea how I am still online.

Well from my experience accusations like this are rarely coming from complete newbies but the Level 120-150 (sometimes up to level 200) player range. The just recently unlocked the minigun and are now bored because there is nothing more to unlock. All they do is go griefing on their broomstick or in their hydra (more often then not the only vehicles the own because "hurr durr cars are boring").

They cant wrap their head around how somebody else can continue playing the game so long to reach such a high level legitimatly because they themself are bored with it after reach their own level, so he highlevels clearly have to have a cheated level. Because its impossible that someone else may enjoy playing the game while they dont.

i've had a vastly different experience than you, then. It seems like instead of wrapping their head around someone playing the game a lot, they can't wrap their head around the fact that someone might be better than them in this game they have nearly 7 years of practice on, when they themselves literally haven't had it installed for a week

It's not that mate. It's definetelly great to see GTA servers full and I get excited just with the though that I can meet someone there willing to be my friend and part of my heist crew. But the way all happened was pretty bad. Rockstar sold their game to Epic without even considering their server capacity, hell, I paid for the game and I wanna play no matter what. The number of modders on God Mode considerably increased, and all the interaction I had so far with the new players was with kids who could barely write and people calling me macaco cuz I'm brazillian. The rest of the new players are just being griefed over and over again. It's depressing.

Considering I have been playing story mode for the past days because I could not even connect to online and when I was finally able to connect to online today a modder blew up my car and the chat was full of "drop money pls", yes, yes I would say GTA online suffered from epic game store.
