I'm helping a friend to boost to max level online: Since the beginning of this week the progress we do (the money earned) is not saved. Yes, we earn the money, but when we leave the game and come back all the money we gained previously in the boosting disappear. Weird, very weird.

Today again. This time I tried to save the game on offline mode after the boosting but without success.

Today it appears our progress online has come back to normal... finally.

what do you mean? I'm having a very similar issue with my boosting partner. We will gain several hundred thousand through a happiness island ranked deathmatch, and then when we boot up we have lost the money.

Yes, precisely. Exactly what happened to me. I thought this issue had disappeared already.

I hope for y’all’s sake it gets fixed eventually. Far Cry 2 is having a similar issue.

I got the same problem. Money earned from matches aren't saving after the game is turned off.

For what it's worth, someone claimed that Far Cry 2 progress will stick as long as the game is on, even if you temporarily lose your Live connection. GTA IV is a pretty stable game from what I remember, so as long as you've got reliable power, leaving your Xbox on might be a reasonable strategy.

But mate, it won't work if you are going for the Wanted achievement

Grand Theft Auto IVWantedThe Wanted achievement in Grand Theft Auto IV worth 157 pointsAchieve the highest personal rank in multiplayer.


It requires earning 5 millions in online mode. And to get one million one must spend more than 12 hours of non-stop boosting...

^I know it sucks, but it’s still possible. You could leave your Xbox on.

Alternatively, back in the day, before the current glitches were discovered, the best way to grind money in this game was to play Hangman’s NOOSE on hard. People have reported that progress does save when your matches are less than five minutes. NOOSE can easily be done in three, so that might be a way to go.

It definitely is still possible, but you have to hope for a lot of little miracles to keep things running smoothly.

I was working on Wanted a few months ago, when the cash stopped saving halfway through the week. I managed to get my final $2 million or so in one session, which only took about 15 hours at $135k per hour on Happiness Island.

But the problem with the leaderboards has been fixed before, so maybe we can hope for it to be fixed again. *fingers crossed*

I triple boxed this and made twice as much money so that's other option if you get to use wo consoles and find a partner.

Having four does not work, tested and the fourth player would spawn away

I feel sorry for you mates, even when I've got this achievement already. I have also some friends that still need it...

Not sure if this is a good sign or not, but it seems like progress might be saving again. I've been doing a couple dozen 5 min matches and it seems to be saving my money progress even when i dashboard and turn off the console (powering off and unplugging the console). Gonna try for an hr game and see if that saves as well. I've got my main profile on my 360 and my secondary on the One doing backwards compatibility. Progress was also saving for the secondary account.

yea, i just tested the hr match and it didn't save after dashboarding. The only thing that seems to work is 5 min or less matches.

Any match after 5 mins and twenty seconds does count. Haven't tested the max time yet
