GTA Online player claims to have figured out why the game loads so slow, offers fix

A GTA Online modder has apparently been able to reduce loading times by up to 70% and has offered the fix to players wanting to cut down their own loading times, too.Modder T0ST has published an article digging into the infamously appalling loading times in GTA Online. After doing some research and writing a unique program to interact with the game files, T0ST managed to reduce loading times by as much as 70%.Turns out that the game doesn’t necessarily struggle to load thanks to its open-world nature, but because there’s a CPU bottleneck that will be most felt on low-…

Grand Theft Auto Role-Playing Is Big On Twitch Again, Starring, Uh, Johnny Silverhand From Cyberpunk

The scene: Grand Theft Auto V’s iconic city of Los Santos. People mill about outside an apartment building, likely plotting crimes. Nothing seems out of the ordinary—except for a lone figure. Clad in suffocatingly tight leather pants and a bulletproof vest, he looks prepared for anything and nothing all at once. He also looks like Keanu Reeves. He approaches a nearby man and asks—practically begs—for a cigarette. “I need my fucking…I need my fix,” he says in a hazy rasp. Then he trails off as he repeatedly slides into a T-pose while repeating the same sentence over and over. “I…

GTA 6 could feature smarter NPCs thanks to newly uncovered Rockstar patent

A new Take-Two patent has been discovered that appears based on improving the intelligence and navigation capabilities of AI.The patent, which registers a “system and method for virtual navigation in a gaming environment” has been posted on Reddit in the last few days, though the actual document was originally filed by Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two, back in October 2020.In the simplest terms possible, the patent is geared at making non-player characters’ (that’s NPCs, for short) artificial intelligence a little smarter and more organic, in an attempt to move away from current AI solutions that are starting to feel a little out-dated.The…

GTA 2 turned 21 yesterday (Thursday, October 22).A quick Google for Casara Roveri Cabernet tells us that this is a fruity wine, with “good ageing potential” of… up to 10 years. We’re not…

The port is based on GTA 3 re3, itself a project to reverse-engineer the PC version.Using that version as base, modder Graber managed to make the game playable on Switch’s hardware, though not without some sacrifices. The game runs at 1080p 30fps and 720p 30fps, but the port does have an unlocked framerate option you can use….

That GTA Vice City Online domain registration probably doesn’t mean anything

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 18 August 2020 15:50 GMT You shouldn’t get your hopes up about any impending GTA-related announcements.Earlier this week, an old GTA Vice City domain popped up on Reddit. Gtavicecityonline.com, which is owned by publisher Take-Two, was updated in March.Despite the domain having been registered all the way back in 2009 – over a year after the release of GTA 4 – some suggested it was related to Rockstar’s reportedly in-development next GTA. The crackpot theory goes that Rockstar is looking to pull a Capcom and title the next game GTA VIce City, with the VI here…
