[PC] Metal detector does not work. Workaround?

Hey.

 

I've been playing online mode for a week now and bought the collector role. After a few hours of collecting items, I bought the metal detector. But the metal detector doesn't flash and my controller doesn't vibrate either. I can find tarot cards, antique liquor, treasure chests and things that are in cabinets, boxes and drawers with no problem based on the vibration.

 

Is there a workaround for this problem? 

 

I have already removed the profile data from the documents folder. But that didn't solve the problem either. Rockstar support has already written me that they will forward my problem to the developers.

 

Salut!

Fossils, coins and some of the jewelry (I think) are the only items that are found with the metal detector. Are you looking for those items?

Before you do everything below, make sure you back-up all the files/folders involved!

 

Delete everything from your settings folder except settings.xml
Delete everything from your profile folder except keymappings (if you use none-standard keymappings)

Start the game. When asked if you want to enable cloud saves click NO / Do it later.
Wait for the game to load and Exit (hold ESC or throught social club)

Start R* launcher and enable cloud saves from the Settings menu.

Start the game.
Now the Metal Detector should work.

It works for my friend (who discovered this fix) and I.

Buy like the map for coins from Madame Nazar and then open that map and go into the yellow areas indicated on the map, then whip it out

Hmm..

 

This is kind of the same problem I had - got this message when I tried to open a collector map : This map is unable to locate any collectibles at this time. you may need to earn a higher collector rank to unlock more map locations ...

 

Well, as I've been in Rank 20 in this role for some time, so was not sure what this was .. Was a bug it seems - followed a tutorial like this one above, but it did scare me a bit, as it looked like my progress was wiped out, when I loaded the game again .. So if someone is using these fixes, please remember to backup the files before trying this ..
