I have had that only a few times, but it was while I was in the middle of a game. If I find any info ill be sure to let you know.
I get that message "connection to one or more players has been lost, returning to singleplayer" since the release of gta4. When I had NAT 3 I coudn't join any games because of my NAT and internal (dynamic) IP (or how do you call that), though every other game worked fine. Now with NAT 2 it disconnects me after 5-30min. That sucks. Wonder if buying a new router will fix it, since it's the only thing I haven't tried... but as I don't have any problems with all the games I have on PS3, PSP and PC... I don't think it's worth it and it's Rockstar's lame programmers fault. Screw them for ruining potentially great mp!
It used to happen to me when I got invited by someone, so they kept inviting me until I got in since it took 3-5 tries. I haven't had any problems for months now, so I don't know why it does it but it just happens I guess.
Hi I having same problem with my when I play for 10min then cut off is 3 time in arrow from my first games I bought.
I always keep saying:The Connection to one or more players has been lost. Returning to single player....
Its the connection to the host....
If the host has a poor connection, generally everybody will eventually get kicked (lose connection), Theres 2 types of kicks if you didnt already know.
Being kicked out by players either because youve annoyed them, or as i have found sometimes, they kill you when you enter, and kick you before you can respawn ...
Then theres your connection kicking you, basicaly the connection to the host was so weak, or your network couldnt make a connection to the host, that it boots you off the server to prevent from timing out and disconnecting.
In both scenarios you cannot get back in a room, it will say "you cant join a game you got kicked from" or something like that.... Interestingly though, if players kick you from a co-op game, you can get back in that room... either by invite, or randomly finding it.
But if your connection kicks you, it wont allow you to connect to that host again.
I believe Wildfire's right...I'll add that you can also get these error messages when you jump into a free roam game even if you start a new game, but most of the time you'll be thrown into a random free roam session. If you are at NAT 3, you may have the wrong router...when I first got connected, I had a Belkin N150 Basic Router - I was constantly at NAT 3, which was driving me nuts. It was possible to play online for awhile with no trouble, but then I'd have to go and plug/unplug the router, then exit to the XMB and do a connection test to see if I'd be at NAT 3 or 2. You may also get an error saying you got disconnected because your NAT Type is too strict, which basically tells you you're at NAT 3. I have since got a better router (Belkin N450 Router), and I'm always at NAT 2.. As I mentioned before, if you're at NAT 2 and you decide to mess around in Free Mode, probably 9 out of 10 times, you'll be thrown into a session that was started by someone else. The best way to remedy this is to just exit, then re-enter, and if you're lucky, you'll be able to set up your own session in terms of what you want to have for your settings, and eventually, you'll have several people joining you whether you invited them or not. If you wanna play by yourself, simply pull up the cellphone (in-game) and max out your invites, which is 15 I believe...what that does is requires all others to ask you if they can join.
