GTA Online’s Ill Gotten Gains update causing issues

1 min read


GTA Online has just become host to a new batch of free content by way of Ill Gotten Gains II. Weighing in at 500Mb, the update adds a wealth of new cars, weapons, outfits and accessories – and brings the once PC-centric Lab Radio station to the newer consoles. For some people though, instead off adding things, it’s taking them away.

It seems many users are finding their cars missing after installing Ill Gotten Gains Part 2, with some unfortunate souls reporting that their garages are now home to naught but the tyres once affixed to their digital chariots. It is Grand Theft Auto.


It’s an issue that Rockstar is aware of, suggesting that cars may have been moved instead of lost.

“We have found that some players’ garages may have been rearranged after updating to 1.28. If you think a vehicle is missing, try calling your mechanic and scrolling through your various garages to see if the vehicle was moved to another location erroneously,” support says.

Another thing that’s apparently gone missing for many PC gamers is their luxurious silky-smooth frame rate. Rockstar’s GTA Online support forums are awash with reports of lowered framerates since the update, as is the game’s Steam page.

“I am running a GTX 970 with all the latest drivers. I have 12gb of ram. I have put all of my quality settings to the lowest to try and eliminate the fact that it is because my PC cant handle it,” says one chap whose game should be running just fine.

“Yeah, my FPS went from 80FPS stable with almost everything maxed out without MSAA to 41 to 55 with the same settings and 56 to 60 with lowest settings possible, terrible patch, they simply destroyed the game,” says another.

Presumably, this sort of stuff will all be fixed in the next GTA Online patch – so isn’t really something worth getting angry about, though getting angry on the internet is something people who play games are especially good at.

    So a patch breaks a game that now needs a new patch to fix it again… wow gaming has really been patchy the last year or so

      Yeah, hardly a game breaker.

      We had no issues, except……just try multitasking a Hearthstone game while driving a garbage truck… some people!

          Not one mate asked whether I won my hearthstone game or not!

          FYI I won, cause I’m uber-talented and so modest.

          So, while Iron died, I did feel it was a sacrifice I was willing to make.

    I recently bought it. Does anyone here still play on PC? Also do the PC and console versions mix when playing online?

    I am running around all alone 🙁

    Aaah. Funny how PC gamers quote the Graphics Cards they own in any discussions that pertain to glitches, bugs, framerate drops or even lag. Market penetration successful.
