That's cool. Its at least trying to run a little better.
The getting kicked from a game online thing is an issue Jaffe is aware of and may(should) be fixed with the patch coming out in the next day or so.
Its something that's happening to everyone. You will be able to play one or two games, then get booted for a connectivity error. Happens to me all the time, even with a solid connection.
My old PS3 actually burnt out on me a while back. I don't know if the newer ones are just built better or because they have a smaller processor, they just don't get as hot. Sucks, man.
I'm having an issue too. Usually when I hit the PS Home button and select "Quit Game" it freezes my system and it reboots.
I'm on an original 60GB model that has no issues with other games. My fan does run REALLY loud when playing Twisted Metal. Is there a way to force 720p within the game? I watch a lot of Blu-ray, and play other games in 1080p that work fine, and don't want to have to keep toggling my system settings back and forth. Not to mention others in the house use my PS3 that I wouldn't trust to change the settings.
Does rebuilding the database also reset factory settings? I remember holding down the button to do that before. Just a pain because I have a lot of things to set up if they get cleared.
I haven't had it turn off or get glitchy mid-game, but then I havent played for more than 2 hours in a sitting since I've gotten it.
Beta caused the same issue, though wrote it off as a Beta bug then.
I have a 120 Gig slim and i've had to hard reset my PS3 4 times while playing. Twice last night alone I had to shut it down, both times the system froze up while loading a Ranked MP TDM game. I've put roughly 11 hours into the MP with 4 hard resets.
Its not even close to being as bad as Skyrim, but I expected more out of a PS3 exclusive..
Rebuilding the database doesn't delete any of your game data, saves, or any other data on your PS3. Really the only thing I noticed it deleted were my music playlists.
Unfortunately I don't know of any setting within the game that will force JUST TM to run in 720p.
I have a launch 60g fat and have had no problems. But my console probably has less wear and tear since I primarily use it as a bluray player in the home theater. Only game up until Twisted Metal came out that I logged alot of hours with was Warhawk.
I have had the game since it was released and have only gotten as far as the menu screen before the system shuts off. I have never been able to play it.
Sadly, I am counted amongst the many that this issue seems to plague.
I own a 60GB Backward Compatible model, that I have upgraded the HDD for. Every other game (Uncharted 3, Soul Calibur V, Fallout NV, and many others I own for the PS3) run fine, it is only Twisted Metal that I cannot run. The issue plagues me in both SP, as well as MP.
Has anyone with a PS3 similar to mine tried the visual downgrade? I am curious to see if this works, and will likely try it later.
I really wish they would focus more on this. I know it's a more common problem for people not always getting to play online, but come on, what about us who can't play it AT ALL? This is my favorite franchise of all time, and I can't play it? This sucks.
