GTA IV multiplayer patch released

Grand Theft Auto IV - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 11:31 AM MDT | By Slim Trashman
Rockstar Games has released patches resolving some of the issues players have come across while playing online for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA IV. The list of fixes are as follows:
  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to enter or exit vehicles in GTA Race.
  • Fixed an issue where scripted vehicles were causing games to unexpectedly crash.
  • Improved reliability and frequency of PS3 online leaderboard updates.
  • Fixed a rare hang some players encountered when moving from a Race or GTA Race lobby into gameplay.
  • Fixed a hang that would occur when players were switching teams during the countdown in the lobby.
  • Fixed an issue where players were able to get ridiculously high scores from Cops 'n Crooks matches.
  • Changed GTA Race and Race so that the last player remaining always receives a reward of $250.
  • Fixed an issue where spectating players would prevent the game from finishing.
  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to spectate in Round 2 of Cops 'n Crooks games.
  • Changed countdown timer in lobby so that it no longer resets when new players join a game.
  • Changed the kick option so that kicked players are no longer brought back to single player.

If you still experience any issues, contact Rockstar support for further assistance.

Finally! I have had the game just up and crash on me 4 times since release. I had never cheated or anything and I was getting frustrated, because each time I had to start SP mode all over again. Thanks R*!

They also need to patch getting into a boat and the waypoint system. These changes aren't really that big of a deal.

As I've experienced most of those bugs, those are good news. And we don't want to get back to SP!
