The GTA Online patch fixes a number of issues related to players attempting to connect online, most notably during the opening tutorial mission where the game's loading screen would continue on forever.
Here are the complete patch notes that Rockstar Games provided earlier.
- Fix to address the issue where players were stuck launching a session before the Mall or Nothing race in the online tutorial.
- Fix to address an issue where bank & cash were deleted incorrectly in some cases.
- Fix to address incorrect amounts of cash being dropped when the player dies in Missions and Last Team Standing.
- Fixes an issue where the Character Switch Wheel would disappear after a failed load.
- Fixes an issue where attempting to enter GTA Online via the Character Switch Wheel caused a black screen.
- Fixes an issue where temporary characters were overwriting main characters.
- Fixes an issue where players were losing apartments and the money they spent on them.
- Fixes an issue that caused Story Mode missions to be missed in some instances.
- Removes the autosave that occurred when transitioning into GTA Online from within GTAV Story Mode to prevent the chance of Story Mode saves becoming corrupted.
- Several tweaks to GTA Online including improving overall stability.
Not mentioned in the patch notes is that the ability to replay missions immediately has been removed. This was in response to players obtaining vast sums of money by playing the same mission - "Violent Duct" - over and over again for hours to quickly amass a small in-game fortune.
The developer is currently investigating issues with player's online characters, cash, progress and other items being deleted by GTA Online. Players have reported random deletions of their online status since the multiplayer first launched on Tuesday.
