GTA4: Game Save Function IS CRAP

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have 2 360s (office and home) with two different XBL tags. I play GTA in one and COD4 in another.

At about 4% I found out that disconecting XBL is the way to play GTA4. I was having problems with autosave, where missions I finished disappear from an Autosave.

I disconect XBL and get to about 45% of the game in that Xbox. I decide to move it to the other 360 and it wipes out the 45% game, and only loads the XBL recognized 4%. ASDFJ***BBQ@QWEQW!@#!$!@#!

I am not playing GTA4 for awhile.

Edit: I moved the harddrive.

I took the 20GB HD of the 45% game to my home 360 (which I forgot was connected to XBL) and LOADED the XBL 4% and wiped out the 45% HD.

Games are saved on the HDD, not your XBL account.


Somebody, please, please, move this to the Jokes & Humor section, I can't take it!

Maybe you're loading different save games or ones under a different account.
One thing that throws me off is that GTA will load an auto save instead of the most recently saved game by me.

Read my post, he played to 4% on the first 360, but for some reason he didn't want the seamlessly integrated online features (or maybe his friends were bugging him idk) and he started another game on the second 360, which isn't hooked up to XBL and got to 45%, at which point he takes the disc out and puts it in his other 360 to enjoy some multiplayer, and is mad because he thought that his save game would be transported over to the other 360 by the magic of teh interwebz. Unfortunately MS has better uses for their servers than hosting well over 4 petabytes of just GTA4 saved games...


Just another classic example of people having more money than brains...

It's quite scary that a guy who does not understand this basic concept works in an office... But then, maybe it's the first time he's owned a console with a hard drive and thinks that he can move to any console and get his game info, pretty much like sitting at a different desk in the office and still being able to access his same Outlook inbox. But even after taking that into consideration, it's still bloody idiotic.

LOL. Thank Koffee, I forgot to mention the HD part, its ok.

Really, this thread was a sort-of warning to be careful with your XBL profile vs the HD profile for GTA4.

Nitteo is no slouch so go easy on the unnecessary comments.

I know a physicist who does work on slipstreaming nuclear submarines for the British Royal Navy and he wouldnt necessarily understand the way xbl and 360 game saves work until hearing it once.

Intelligence doesnt mean we automatically know how everything works without asking.

So true. You know what you know, and what you don't know someone else does. So it's good for everyone to be helpful!
