Anyone else having random Autolog disconnects?

#1 Posted by SMTDante89 (2582 posts) -

I'm on the PS3 but others could be having the same problems. Are any of you having random autolog disconnects that keep disconnecting, sometimes just seconds after you reconnect? Or should I just chalk it up to my college internet being terrible?

Yes, it happens all the damn time, it is really annoying. It's not only NFS: MW though, it happens with EA FC as well, which is a similar system just in the Fifa series, and that has been going on for months, since launch.

Very frequently on 360

Yeah, I've had the same issue off-and-on since I got it. Sometimes I'll go a whole session without any disconnects, other times I'll have to re-connect and it disconnects again after five minutes or so. This isn't a huge deal, but when I get massive air through a billboard I'm always checking the leaderboard that pops up, and of course I can't see how I stack up because only my PSN will show up while Autolog is disconnected. I guess I could always reconnect and then drive back to check out that leader board, but the moment is totally gone by then.

Happens to me on the PC a lot.

Yea, it's been happening to me a lot on PS3. I don't mind it that much in single-player but getting kicked out of multiplayer sessions because autolog suddenly crapped out is infuriating.

Same here on 360, I'm glad it's not just me. I thought it was my shitty internet.

Sometimes when you disconnect and get a bunch of SP, and then reconnect, it reverts your total back to before you were disconnected. I've heard of some people never getting those points back, which can be annoying when you're trying to beat a Most Wanted car and it reverts back to a lower total so you can't race them again. In my experience though, whenever I quit the game and came back, my original points would be back... so it just made it inconvenient.

Oh and also it didn't remember some of the random speed cameras/billboards/gates that I got. I ended up with the all speed cameras achievement, but since it didn't remember that I got them all in game, I was at 65/66 the next time I played.

I can't even get autolog to work, I'm getting the error code 800d0000. :/

@NekuSakuraba: Go to multiplayer and it will have a log on option for autolog. It will generally log on if you try a couple times even with that error. I get it a lot when booting up the game as well.

Of course that doesn't fix the problem where I can't stay logged on for more than a couple events.

I can barely do one online event before it disconnects.

i actually had this on ps3, i got disconnected and i reconnected but suddenly i didn't have enough SP anymore for my first most wanted race. I quit the game and the next day when i rebooted i suddenly had my SP back. Very weird shit.

so many things that hurt this game, can't feel but thinking that this game is rushed in a couple of spots.

Yes very frequently. Oddly it will prevent me from connecting to Multiplayer if it doesn't log in but when your in a session and it disconnects sometimes you will be fine and still able to play.

Yes. DIdn't have any before yesterday, has been happening constantly the last 2 days.

@Syndrom: I think the problem is that we're dealing with EA servers. They've had a spotty track record in the past when it comes to multiplayer launches.

It seemed much better tonight, for what it's worth.

It disconnects randomly for me on PS3 as well and I haven't been able to put my picture up on autolog so I have been stuck with a generic outline as my pic :(

#18 Posted by beard_of_zeus (1695 posts) -

Yeah, I was having bad issues yesterday where I had to keep re-connecting manually on the 360 version.

Same here on PS3, roughly every 10-15 minutes I get disconnected.

Yeah happened like 5 times to me last night, hope they patch. That is literally the only problem I have with the game, frame rate is solid on PS3

@SMTDante89: Oh thank god its not just me. I'm on PSn too, and everytime i connect to the multiplayer from easydrive, it says i have to sign in to psn, even though i am signed in. Then it connects me to the servers, and after 1 or two games in a public game, im disconnected, and after that i cant connect to autolog. Sometimes it works if i quit the game and go back on. i hope they patch, cuz if they do, then this game is legit perfect

Got the game free on Origin due to being a simcity mug, its still doing this for me, (was fine on 360). 13 page thread on the forums about it. Really annoying as it boots youout of multiplayer when it happens.
