Midnight Club: Los Angeles Major Freezing Problems

62 Replies 12,685 Views Created 29-11-2008

When returning to cruise or exiting a menu my PS3 freezes / locks up and I have no idea but to hold down the power button and restart.

is it a programming bug / error? I exchanged the disc and got a new one and it still freezes, there are no scratches on the disc and my PS3 is very well ventilated. I'm waiting for the next game patch (maybe it will fix the bug). I can still race perfectly, just freezes after every race and sometimes I get sandy / blurry road and textures. Its only in this game that has problems, every other game is fine, one or two lock ups but mainly fine.

 

Need help / advice quick please!!! I love this game, its a shame it just freezes a lot.

PS: I made a new save file and the freezing stopped, however when I go back to my main file the freezing happens and I'm not starting again, I'm already 57% complete. What happens if I make new save file and get up to 57 % and it starts freezing again that would be a waste.... :(

 

thank you plz help me.....:)

I'm in the exact same situation as you! Only difference is that i soldiered on till beating the City Champ. I then went on to beat the Tuner & Exotic Champs but the game froze after both and i didn't get my trophies! :( I was not amused to say the least.

I have started a new game save and no issues so far (53%), but tbh i'm expecting the worst. Really dissapointing. I have the 60Gb so it's nothing to do with that.

Midnight club froze and broke my PS3 a few weeks ago. Not played it since. I was at 68% and flying through it. Gutted. Now i'm too scared to play it again.

Yeah its so frustrating when the game freezes, after every race i have to restart my PS3 to keep playing. This game is seriously bug/glitched. maybe it has a virus lol..... its a programming error, how long does it take for rockstar to know that their game is stuffed??? can't they release a new update over night or something???? or does it only happen to some people??, when i play online i ask other epople if it freezes and they say yes....does it freeze with the 360? maybe rockstar stuffed up the programming cause the PS3 is more complex than the 360?? any thoughts>>>

by the way i keeping this game casue its really fun when u play it. I always end up coming first the whole race and then on last turn i always stuff them up and i come last lol so annoying and then it freezes.....:( COD4 works fine on my PS3, MCLA is challenaging, I like it when i win feel so good inside.....but i hate when it freezes after every race and the texture loading lag looks alful for a game this good. Maybe cause theres no loading screens (although the start it loads) rockstart took shortcuts to make it load quicker, i rather have longer load times then have a freezing messed up game that is barely playable. sometimes cars pop out of no where and i hit nothing and then the car comes 5 sec later lol......this game is still in its development stage....how did it get past all the testers and reviews. i google this problem but i only get very few sites about this problem......>>>>

Now, I'm not going to suggest this is a fix for the freezing problem with this game, but so far it has worked for me....

 

My game was randomly freezing exactly the same as previous posters so I tried a few different things to see if it helped. What I did was...

 

1. (everytime before loading the game) Open up the internet browser and then delete cookies & also clear cache

 

2. Turned off the ingame music (I listen to music via the stereo anyway while playing so this was no loss!)

 

Could be just a coincidence, but since doing this my game has not frozen at all. Worth a try at the very least. Suppose folks could also try turning off the auto save function in game to see if that helps? If you do though, just remember to save manually before turning it off!

 

This is with a regular Slim console and the Complete platinum version of the game. Bet I'm tempting fate now with this post - watch it freeze the next time I play, lol!

yea... mine does this too.  i have the original 60gig backwards compatible one and it freezes quite a bit.  i wasn't sure if it was just my ps3 or not and i got a little scared.  at first i thought it might be a problem with my ps3 overheating or something.  but this freakin stinks!!!  midnight club is a great game, too bad i might not be able to race my friends online.  hope the problem gets fixed :(

 

it's more frustrating b/c there's a lot of ppl who don't have this problem... ugh.
