Midnight Club LA freezing PS3

16 replies 1682 views Edited Dec 31, 2008

Hey guys this game for some reason freezes a lot for me. It happens both offline and online. Offline it seems to be a random times when I am driving. Online it's always when it's looking to join a match.

 

I never really had problems with freezing on my PS3 before, save for a few instances in a couple games, but I knew EXACTLY when it was happening, and it wasn't random like Midnight Club.

When you first start the game and you get in your car, if there aren't any icons on the map don't move until they appear, sometimes you will be driving and the icons will pop onto the minimap and then the game freezes for me.

I've had the exact same issue when trying to join online mathes... It's happening way to often, becoming really really really annoying. really

 

I believe the game has completely frozen up on me a couple times where I actually have to hold the power button on the PS3 and reboot, but maybe only 2 or 3 times when I played it for long sessions, so I'm not to upset.... However, this damn glitch when trying to join an online match happens  all the time to me and another friend. We always have to press the PS button and quit the game, then restart and hope it goes through successfully.

 

Hopefully Rockstar has a patch in the near future to fix the problem.

I noticed our friends across the sea have had lots of freezing issues too:

The only freezing issues i had were early on like a few here with 2+hour play sessions. But there is a failsafe method for thsee freezes IF you get the indication..

 

Usually when the game is about to freeze (on my system) I will notice the "engine" sfx for the cars will not make a noise. All other SFX work just nothing for cars..like engine,tires,nitrous or abilities.

 

When this happens...just quit the game and whoala! No freeze and you knew it was comming.

yea this game freezes alot... one time it was once the game started which was the first time i played ps3 that day... I also got crashed out of the game onto the xmb 2 times. I also have the no engine sound which is very annoying, I get pop up graphics , and a few times on a bike i slide throw a wall and fell for like 1minute till it restarted me... Oh and one time it wouldnt leave pursuit mode after I lost the cops...

I don't know what's going on with this game....................It never froze on me before and the past 3 weeks since I kind of picked it back up and start playing regular its been freezing all the time for me.  It never freezes offline play, only on online gaming, and it usually happens when it's finding a room or when I'm changing cars.  I checked the disk and it has no scratches or anything on it.  This is the only game I get freezes on.  It's happening also to some of my friends as well.

I just started thinking, I don't believe I really had the consistent freezing issue when trying to join online matches until after that patch 1.03 update... Or may have just been coincidence, but perhaps some of the freezing glitch's were accidentally implemented with the new patch.
