SONY should offer a reward for the person who told how this screen freezing glitch is being done so it can be fixed. This can't be a $50 psn card reward this has to be huge. Like lets say you offer a tremendous sum of money or make everything available free of charge to this person, I bet one of these glitchers would be inclined to fork over the info then. Hell SONY you don't even have to give them the reward. Just bluff so you can find this out and get it fixed cause you're losing customers and I asure you your lack of vigilance towards these freezers is the main problem.
They know how its being done, they just don't seem to be able to patch it.
it's done by merging certaing clothes over an outfit. They keep patching the new ways to create merges, but those with merge already made can keep loading their merge in all these new client updates. i doubt it will ever be patched. even if they banned everyone who is doing it, people will just use Xploder to copy their save file onto new accounts and begin freezing again.
Home will always be like it, it has been for the past 2 years now.
PS4 Preordered - yipeeee!
That won't fix it, people would go to their personal space, and put the merged outfit on, then just go to a public space and freeze everybody. One thing that would fix it is if they made every single map in home, remove merges upon entry. Sony might not know how to do that intentionally, but it's quite easy. Maps that place clothes on your avatar such as OrbRunner (used to place goggles) and Granzella beach on first visit (places shorts + vest on avatar) these maps kill merges, if you have a merge on and visited these maps, when you went somewhere else the merge would be gone and you'd have to reload it. But because the merge that people are using to freeze home with requires a reinstall/cache clear, they would not be able to reload it.
Even the bath towell from granzella kills merges when you go to another map.
Seriously if you want to patch the freeze glitch once and for all then just have every map in Home give our avatars an item that we didn't choose ourselves in wardrobe, that's all it takes to kill merges. It can be some crappy item like an earing, and it would still delete the merge when the user changes map.
Or another much easier way to patch merging once and for all...
then reupload them so they have a different item code (they're free from loot store anyway)
then when these freezers try to load their merged android files, it will not load the android because the code for android will have changed. patch done! Why you don't just do this i've no idea..
the merge loads in android, the user is then changing outfit to the one that freezes. if you change the code or get rid of android then they cannot EVER load their merged file, and there will be no freezing ever again.
This is a losing batte... I mean these people are so obvious when you see them they go into their wardrobe turn to that loading ghost form come out of it running around still a ghost and the place freezes.. You come back and the same person does it again i mean i can see whos doing it i have a list of names but i cant report them because there is no proof. All the mods have to go by is the chat log and a screenshot... thats what needs to change if anything.
@Shen they should really employ you to help with things like this.
