Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 Out Now

THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2015 :: Posted by TreeFitty :: 0 Comments :: 981 Views

You've done the crime - and reaped stacks upon stacks of dirty cash much to the chagrin of San Andreas' reeling financial institutions. So, what to do with your newfound wealth? Sensible low-risk investments and a quiet retirement? Live out the rest of your years comfortably but inconspicuously with an understated and respectable lifestyle?


Didn't think so. To the victor go the spoils - and for those whose Online Heists profits are burning a raging hole in their pockets, get ready to properly ball out and become the envy of all your Snapmatic followers by flaunting your hard-earned gull-wing doored supercars, ostentatious designer vehicle wraps, solid gold aircraft and so much more.


The Ill-Gotten Gains Update: Part One for Grand Theft Auto Online is available today across all five platforms. In addition to four new high-end automobiles (the Pegassi Osiris, Albany Virgo, Benefactor Stirling GT and Enus Windsor), you can also rule the skies in a pair of new extravagant, Deluxe aircraft. And not only have the racks at swank Rockford Hills clothiers been updated with new designer outfits, necklaces, earrings and watches - the rack at your local Ammu-Nation's got a new Personal Defense Weapon, the Combat PDW. The newest generation of Los Santos residents can also adorn select weaponry and attachments with Luxury Engravings, while luxury aircraft will afford new generation residents the opportunity to drink champagne and smoke cigars while flying high in the Los Santos skies.


Also part of today’s automatic update, Rockstar has added the First Person Vehicle Hood Cam that's already on PC to the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, along with a host of other new features and updates including redesigned, easier-to-use vehicle websites; a new 'Friends In Session' option within the On Call phone menu to auto-invite all your friends to a job you are on call for, and a lot more. For the complete list, check out the official notes at the Rockstar Support site. They've also added the latest GTA Online illustration featured in this past Friday's announcement and the event flier to the collection of GTAV digital artwork in a range of desktop wallpapers, smartphone and tablet backgrounds, avatars and more. To get the update, just start up GTAV from your online-connected console and follow the update prompts on screen.

Rockstar Editor Contest: Music Video for "Leave" by Wavves

WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 2015 :: Posted by TreeFitty :: 1 Comments :: 1,239 Views

UPDATE: The deadline for this contest is Monday, June 8th.

Rockstar Games has opened up the first video editor contest. The goal is to make the official music video for the Wavves song "Leave" - off the Alchemist & Oh No Present: Welcome To Los Santos album and the new in-game radio station The Lab.

GTA 5 PC video editor contest

THE CREATIVE BRIEF
You may have heard the lads from Wavves on your Los Santos radio dial as the hosts of Vinewood Boulevard Radio. Now, Wavves have commissioned the Social Club community to create their official music video for "Leave". Wavves themselves along with Rockstar Games will be reviewing the finalists and deciding who wins, so here's a bit of direction on what they are looking for:

The song is about leaving a bad situation. Whether that means a criminal enterprise or activity, or a bad romantic relationship, or something else entirely is up to you to interpret as the music video director. Just have fun with it and don’t be afraid to get a little weird along the way.

To fire your creative juices, here's the track for you to listen to.

THE PRIZES
As well as the prestige of having your masterpiece selected as the track's official music video, the grand prize winner will receive a custom G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard and G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse both of which come laser engraved with the Rockstar Editor logo as well as your own personal Social Club ID to make it a truly one-of-a-kind bit of kit.

The G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard features ultra-responsive mechanical keys and Logitech’s Intelligent Illumination. Fully supported by GTAV PC, the backlit keys match the signature color of the character you’re playing as while in Story Mode dynamically (blue for Michael, green for Franklin, orange for Trevor), the function keys flash red and blue when you have a Wanted Level, and a custom profile can be setup to backlight only the relevant keys while using the Rockstar Editor. The G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse features 11 programmable buttons, customizable weight and five selectable DPI settings, from headshot-precise 200 DPI targeting to lightning-fast 12,000 DPI maneuvers.

As if that's not enough, the Winner also receives a deluxe prize pack of awesome official GTAV gear and a $100 gift card at the Rockstar Warehouse - which can be used on anything currently available, including rounding out your Rockstar Digital Download collection, expanding your Rockstar wardrobe, or upgrading your GTA Online vehicle fleet with a Megalodon Shark Card.

Two runners-up will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear. The winner and the two runners-up will also be featured at the Rockstar Newswire.

HOW TO ENTER
Entering the competition is easy. Simply create a video in the Rockstar Editor using GTAV PC and publish it to Rockstar Games Social Club via the in-game menu. From there, head to the My Videos page on Social Club, and tag your video with the word "leave" to enter it into the contest. A few important points:
  • The video must feature the song "Leave" by Wavves as its soundtrack, and only that song.
  • Your video must be between 3 and 5 minutes in length.
  • The video must be published to Rockstar Games Social Club and tagged with the word 'leave' between now and 11:59pm ET on June 8th to be eligible.
  • For legal reasons, only residents of certain countries are eligible to win.
  • The video must be made entirely using the Rockstar Editor. Rockstar knows that many advanced Rockstar Editor video creators like to use additional third party editing software but in order to keep this competition fair for all entrants, they require that you only use the Rockstar Editor in producing the video.

UNLOCKABLE T-SHIRT FOR EVERY EDITOR (REDEEMED THIS JUNE)
Even if you don't win, every Social Club member worldwide who uploads any video to Social Club (not just entries in the competition) during the contest period will unlock an in-game t-shirt bearing the logo of the Vinewood blockbuster hit The Loneliest Robot in Great Britain. Please note that the t-shirt will be awarded after the contest ends in early June, so please don't expect it to appear as soon as you upload a video! And for those who haven't seen it yet, The Loneliest Robot in Great Britain is on an extended run at the Tivoli, Ten Cent and Oriental Theatres in downtown Los Santos right now.

GTA 5 Loneliest Robot T-shirt

Wavves and Rockstar Games will pick the winning clip taking into consideration adherence or interpretation of The Creative Brief mentioned above, entertainment and artistic value, editing quality and overall creativity. Watch the Social Club contest page to see how other Social Club members think your clip stacks up against the competition and stay tuned for the winners announcement this June.

Void in certain countries and where prohibited. See www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/events/contests for official rules and eligibility details.

Good luck and share your videos in the forums!

Asked & Answered: Vid Editor for Consoles, Future DLC, Etc

THURSDAY, MAY 07, 2015 :: Posted by TreeFitty :: 2 Comments :: 1,808 Views

Rockstar Games is answering more fan questions. Of course by now most questions are focused on future content for GTA V and Rockstar has plenty in the pipe. Short answers: Streamlined Rockstar Editor for new-gen consoles, plenty of new vehicles and weapons among other DLC, no more heists, no Self Radio for consoles, singleplayer mods are okay with Rockstar, GTAO mods/glitches/exploits are not, no official Mac version being announced.

Future DLC

“The real question is: on what are we going to spend the money from the Heists? (For those who have practically everything)” – vens243
“What’s coming next [for GTA Online]…??” – Nilix
“Will there be more [Heists] added with future updates?” – carl0winer


To vens243 and others who are excited to show off their Heists spoils, beyond the many new vehicles and items that arrived to GTA Online as part of Heists, we are also working on another update coming soon that will feature some very cool new toys for you to enjoy and flaunt with your ill-gotten gains. For now, the screenshot above provides just a glimpse... For those asking for more Heists, please understand that Grand Theft Auto Online Heists were a tremendous undertaking so it’s not the sort of thing where we can easily create and publish additional Heists like other Job modes and missions. We are, however, working on other cool updates for GTA Online that you can expect over the coming months.


“I would like to use [the Rockstar Editor] but I’m on PS4. Hey Rockstar, can you do something please for PS4 players?” – Black_Pawn_01
“When’s [The Lab radio station] coming on next-gen consoles?” – GRUNSKY
“Is [The Lab radio station] ever gonna come out on PS4?” – sn3jku


The Rockstar Editor is an advanced tool requiring additional processing power so it would not be compatible with GTAV on the older systems, but we are currently working on a version tailored for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles – and we hope to release that sometime this summer, or as soon as it is ready. We are also planning to bring The Lab radio station to all four consoles in a forthcoming title update. Please stay tuned for more information.


“Will there be any more updates for [GTA Online] on Xbox 360?” – @ColtsPacersJosh

We want to support the older consoles with new content for as long as we possibly can. As we mentioned previously, we always knew there might be a point where we would reach the technical capacity of what the older generation of consoles can handle as each downloadable update requires additional memory both for assets and for additional scripting. We have continued to optimize the entire game over time in order to squeeze as much memory as we possibly could out of the last-generation hardware and at some point, continuing to add content for those systems could cause the risk of instability to the game overall. As of now, we are planning on releasing the next big content update for all five systems and we will continue to squeeze as much as we possibly can onto them.



“Why is [Self Radio] not possible on PS3/PS4?” – Destroy_Ger
“How about creating something like that in PS4/3 and Xbox platforms?” – Osprey11
“Can you put this on PS4 or Xbox 1 at least?” – RayzRBlayde1229


The GTAV PC Self Radio experience that plays your personally curated playlist of mp3s in the game as a fully featured and properly integrated radio station just wouldn’t technically be possible on the consoles as it requires more than the consoles allow at this time.


“I’m having soo much fun with GTAV on the PC but I just have one question about it, how come you are not allowing mods for it?” - @ClarkMatthew63
“Will I get banned from GTA Online for using a FoV Mod or Oculus Rift mod?” - @Mattophobia


We have always appreciated the creative efforts of the PC modding community and we still fondly remember the awesome zombie invasion mod and original GTA map mod for GTAIV PC among many other classics. To be clear, the modding policy in our license has not changed and is the same as for GTAIV. Recent updates to GTAV PC had an unintended effect of making unplayable certain single player modifications. This was not intentional, no one has been banned for using single player modifications, and you should not worry about being banned or being relegated to the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods. Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.


“We want to play GTAV with joystick. Will you add joystick support for PC? There is a huge difference between gamepad and JS.” – @eniyikotuadam
“Just wondering if there’s a possibility of including joystick support for GTAV in any upcoming patches or updates?” – received via Mouthoff
“Rockstar friends, GTAV PC version would be significantly enhanced if players could use their steering wheels.” – received via Mouthoff


Thank you for the feedback! We understand that many PC players out there would like to see enhanced peripheral support for specialized controllers such as flight sim joysticks and steering wheels. No promises, but it is something we are investigating to see if possible in a future update.


“Can I play GTAV on my Mac?” – received via Mouthoff
“Why this game isn’t [available for] Mac?” – Jaalloav


While GTAV isn’t technically released for Mac, you can actually play the PC version on a Mac by running Windows 7 or 8 through Boot Camp. You can find instructions along with some other requirements over at Rockstar Support.


“Hi Rockstar! Please report these guys on YouTube who destroy your game. Look at all the cheats they promote in their videos… I’d be grateful for answers on what you plan to do with about this?” – Aleek94
“Okay, so I've let this slip under the carpet, but now I'm really starting to get pissed off with the whole situation. I can accept people grinding Capture or Rooftop Rumble, what I can't get over is the amount of people doing money and RP glitches, and the YouTubers who are feeding the community with them... I suggest you take action on the YouTubers who are promoting these glitches… they need dealing with, because they're the ones starting to destroy GTA Online...” – ilewisgta


We are tremendous fans of the vast majority of YouTube content that fans post using footage from our games – everything from original machinima movies to funny gameplay moments to hypnotizing time-lapses and so much more – but we obviously do not support or condone any videos that attempt to instruct people how to cheat their way towards illegitimate RP, counterfeit GTA$, duping vehicles without having earned them and other things along those lines that compromise the fairness of the game’s ranking and economy systems. We have a long-standing policy on posting copyrighted Rockstar Games material over at the Rockstar Support website, and to make things clearer on this front, we’ve just added a bulletpoint about this particular type of content there. Just like our other long-standing rules about not posting pre-release leaked footage, spoilers or entire in-game television content episodes – anyone who posts videos that encourage and promote ways to cheat your way towards gaining illegitimate RP or counterfeit in-game money or duplicating in-game items without having earned them may have their videos flagged for takedown with YouTube. Thank you again to everyone in the community (and especially the hardworking and creative GTA YouTube community!) for helping to bring this matter to our attention. Thanks also to everyone in the community for your ongoing efforts since the launch of GTA Online in reporting glitches, bugs and exploits to us via the Support website – it’s invaluable information that helps inform fixes in Title Updates and via dynamic tuning to help keep GTA Online as fair as possible for everyone.


“Are you guys doing anything to fix godmode/invisibility and unlimited ammo [in GTA Online]?” - @TacticalTaco5

Absolutely. We have always taken this issue very seriously and have people dedicated to addressing these problems when they arise. Unfortunately even a tiny minority of people cheating can have a negative impact on a larger population. In addition, solving this problem requires a different approach on each platform. We have been regularly rolling out fixes for specific exploits and tools to enable us to combat cheating with each patch and we are going to continue to do so. While it’s unrealistic to say we can solve the problem of cheating forever and for everyone, we believe we are making significant progress on this issue and we will continue to work aggressively to stop these griefers in their tracks as best we can.
