    I'm done with online.

    We all know about the rocky start, I had a level 20+ character disappear, cars vanishing from my garage and a whole heap of other bugs and glitches. 1.04 patch seemed promising and stable so I started again. I decided to work towards the Decorated trophy to vary the gameplay abit after already logging a fair few hours with my deleted character. This trophy involves completing 30 different awards to Platinum status within the game, starting from Bronze, Silver and Gold.

    Doesn't take a genius to see what's wrong with this pic:




    Yep, Pic taken shows Decorated trophy not unlocked but if you look in the background I have unlocked 30 platinum awards and my social club stats also show 30 unlocked. This character alone has taken the best part of 40 hours to get to this point yet what I was working towards has now also glitched on me (as well as my other thread regarding the RP payouts not being paid out when completing an award).

    Really doesn't give me any motivation or reassurance that if I carry for the rest of the trophies that they will actually unlock as well.

    To be honest its kinda your fault. Why put this much effort into this? We all knew from the start that the online was full of bugs and that many characters just disappeared.

    I new characters disappeared early on before the patches. I haven't had any of that now.
    My fault for a requirement being met and not unlocking? Righto

    It is absolutely not his fault that Rockstar failed to meet quality control in their game. Ridiculous.

    It's amazing their database doesn't get rolled back, analysed, and re establish all known wins.
    Kind of sad and I have the utmost respect for these developers, but, they finally blown something it seems.

    This is unacceptable for game company as big as Rockstar.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    The only thing weird happened to me was I lost my character and rank and had to start over but when i started over my money was still there. not all of it, i had about 66 000$ and it went down to 43 000$. not bad considering R* is dishing out half a mill.

    I had something similar happen with one or two singleplayer trophies. I did the required thing for the trophy, but it would never pop up. I would even redo the required thing. Nothing worked.

    Shut it off and booted up 12+ hours later and the trophies had unlocked but just didn't show up as unlocked for whatever reason.

    This may be as simple as that. At least I hope so, I can feel your frustration.

    Yeah, so let me carry on playing and putting effort into gta online even though there is a big chance of my character and/or my cars/money disappearing and theres a big chance of me having to start again because of this. But its cool, i dont mind that happening!

    Pfft! Come on man, i know its not just his fault, but he shouldntve put in all the effort, because whats happened to him has happened to many others before and he knew that.

    Anyway man, hopefully it gets fixed and you get your hard earned trophies!

    I don't usually get frustrated on here and just go with the flow but for god sake you're testing my patience.
    No one new characters would disappear from day one until people tried it. Fact.
    Since the latest patch none of my characters have disappeared. Fact.

    I talked about pre patch, cars/characters/money disappearing.
    Post patch (1.04) all that has been fine that's why I (as well as many) have started again.
    Why you insist on bringing up pre patch faults I don't know as my current problem is completely isolated from them and it's hardly something people expect now after however many years trophies have been implemented for, a trophy requirement being met and it not unlocking.

    Dont get frustrated, this is the internet, and im just sharing my opinions.

    When i talk about characters and money etc disappearing, im just talking in general, those bugs were the big things, no one else realised therew ere other little bugs that you speak of, but there are, and there will be for a long time. I though it was obvs, dont see why its not for some people. Im saying it for you guys' benefit, ive been saying it from the start, dont play online! Isnt it obvious, you will keep starting again after every single update and you will be disappointed everytime! Seems like common sense to me.

    Obviously r* failed with the online, but why make a mistake playing it knowin they failed? I dont understand

    If I was playing on 1.01 I'd whole heartedly agree that it's down to the individual whether they started again or not after having their initial character wiped and run the risk of it happening again.

    Trophies have been going long enough to be programmed correctly that when a requirement is met, it unlocks.

    Just a question, have you since gained anymore? Apparently some have it unlocked at 31 or 32, because the Veteran Racer award is bugged and doesn't count (and possibly another one, since some require 32).

    I'm not saying it's okay that it could be fixed with 31/32, but it's definitely better than having to redo it all over again.

    The crate chaser one looks easy enough, as does the parachute one (staying up for X minutes).

    Just working on acouple of others now thanks mate. Unfortunately I've done those as well as the more achievable awards as some are quite a grind. Since looking it up on the net a bit more I've also read that these awards glitch if complete then during a mission rather than in free roam. I hope that's not the case as I know afew of mine were completed during a mission. I'm going to do acouple more and see what happens from there. Cheers

    36th award in and the trophy popped
    Guessing it was due to completing some awards during missions and not free roam.
    Thanks for the suggestions to get it unlocked.

    Sorry you had to do so many, but glad it worked.

    I've started looking at doing some, and boy was I wrong with the parachute ones. They are easy, but definitely time consuming.

    Thanks and me too!

    The parachuting ones I did were:

    Nick Of Time - Deploy your parachute below 130 feet and land safely 25 times
    Stayed On Target - Use the brakes for accurate and safe landing 25 times (L1+R1 for safe landing)

    For nick of time, (can be done online in Solo mode) Open the map and look for the 2 Ammunations with the gun ranges, choosing the most North gun range of the 2. Still looking at the map, go West acouple of blocks and you'll come across a construction site with 2 cranes, there is also greenish netting around the building being constructed. Climb up the orange'ish crane and there is a parachute, jump over the edge of the crane and deploy the parachute when you're almost level (but a tad higher) with the tree to the opposite of the crane. Immediately hold L1 and R1 for landing and pulling back on the analogue stick to slow down a little. Rinse and repeat as by the time you have climbed back up the crane, the parachute is just about to spawn.

    For stayed on target, (can also be done online in Solo mode) Choose a parachute mission and select to play on your own (cant remember the name of the one I chose but it was Construction something..). There is IIRC only 4 maybe 5 checkpoints then the landing zone. Each one was taking around 40 seconds for me. Once complete hit replay and do that 25 times if you want to bust it out quick time.

    Both these methods are pretty quick and don't require anyone else, or playing different missions etc.

    Acouple of other quick ones:

    Birdies - Sink Birdies in Golf 25 times. Same as stayed on target - can be done solo. Select to play starting Hole 6 and also ending Hole 6. Hole 6 is a 3 shot Par so 2 shots only for the Birdie. 1st shot gets you on the green, 2nd shot putt the golf ball. This is also the hole where you can achieve a hole-in-1 award but of my 25 birdies I only managed to hit the pole 3 times and none went in.

    Airborne - land jumps over 300 feet in a road vehicle 25 times. Best place for this is at Los Santos airport. To the left hand side facing the entrance of the terminal there is 2 security gates guarding the airfield. To the right of the gate is a ramp (greenish in colour) to get onto the airfield (also 1 of the stunt jumps). Use this ramp 25 times, once in the airfield you can turn around and tap the left hand security gate for it collapse to get back out of the field and do the jump again.

    When Pigs Fly: Shoot down 25 Police Choppers. Go solo again, choose a helicopter race, GTA type race (so weapons enabled) and wanted stars on, choose the Buzzard helicopter. Once you start wait 5 seconds for weapons to enable, switch to missiles and fire at the streets blowing cars up etc. You'll soon get 3 stars and police choppers. Destroy 25 choppers. If you die it doesn't matter as you will load at the first checkpoint of the race and can make a start on getting the wanted level again.

    Anyway, there's afew and they're not too time consuming unless if you want to do them in open lobbies with other users etc. You may already have them anyway but if you want to check any others out I did, here's my stats with the details of what I completed:

    http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/...areer/overview and just select the awards tab next to trophies.

    Cheers

    Yea I'm close on the parachute ones. I just need 10 or so over 3 minutes and a little more on the Nick of Time. My method is flying on top of the police station east of Del Pierro Pier then jumping off the building. I land in the parking lot and climb up some ladders, get in the helicopter and replenish the parachute.

    Doing the same thing with the police choppers. I was doing the "Spend time with a wanted level" one and I think every minute I was getting 50RP (the bar actually went up). I was doing it with a 5-star wanted level, so I don't know if that's what it was for. Using the train tunnel southeast of the horse track/casino was really easy, since no vehicles will chase you there. You just have to show yourself to the chopper every now and then and watch out for trains.

    I'm probably going to just do a few every now and then. There are quite a few online trophies I know I'll never get so it's not a major worry. I just already had 9 from not really trying so figured I'd see how many I could easily get.

    If you need a hand with any of the online trophies just fire me a friend request.

    Like directing a driver as a co pilot in a rally race, surviving with a bounty on your head, completing survival etc.

    I have 3 across single player and multiplayer left - 70 gold medals, rank 50 and rank 100.

    Thanks, if I get around to those I will.

    I know otherwise I won't be doing them. Those races I know I would never complete if there wasn't anything tied to them. Luckily I got the world record award when the races were bugged and times didn't show up.

    I have had so many issues today and yesterday with online, such as being kicking out of jobs and cannot connect when loading jobs. Sometimes in a job and everyone leaves and everything.
    It's getting unplayable it's that bad, most of the time I'm having to reload back in from single player.

    Any one else having fresh issues online?
