GTA Online Doomsday Heist – Hacking Screens

GTA Online Doomsday Heist Hacking

 

During the final heist Act III (Act 3), you have to hack 4 terminals in the server room. The maps/hacking screens are somewhat random, here is a few of them and I will keep adding them as I get more of them and how to hack them when I do eventually hack them all.

XBOX One X Console Unboxing and Basic Setup

XBOX ONE X Limited Edition

What is the Xbox One X?

The Xbox One X is the most powerful games console on the market today. It represents a major performance boost over the Xbox One S and is geared towards people who want to see their games at the best quality possible on a console.

4K is the name of the game, and this machine does a sterling job of serving up games at the fabled 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution.

But it’s not quite that simple. Game developers are still beavering away to optimise their Xbox games to take advantage of the One X’s hardware, and it leaves me with the impression that casual players are going to be rather confused come launch day. In addition, not every game you played on the original Xbox One or Xbox One S will look better, or even play better, on the One X; it’s entirely on a game-by-game basis.

Aside from muddying the waters, there’s no disputing that the Xbox One X is a seriously impressive piece of hardware that takes console performance to new heights.

But does that make it a must-buy?

 

 

XBOX X One Unboxing

 

The xbox comes in a nice black finished printed box that screams both classy and impressive, probably one of the nicest boxes I have seen, so I can’t complain too much . Since this is a limited edition it comes with the Project Scorpio printed on the Box, Console and Controller.

The xbox one controller box is neatly packed and just as nice as the main box, everything has a perfect spot.

As you can see from the controller, the words Project Scorpio are printed on the controller.

XBOX One Chip

 

The Xbox One X boasts a custom eight-core CPU running at 2.3GHz (31 per cent faster than the Xbox One). The GPU is made up of 40 custom compute units running at 1172MHz – this allows the ‘X’ to deliver six teraflops of processing power, way above the PS4 Pro’s 4.2 teraflops.

Microsoft’s new console gets a significant bump in memory with an allocation of 12GB of GDDR5 RAM – nine of which is available to developers – taking its bandwidth up to 326GB/s). That’s enough to process the high-resolution textures needed to render native 4K images.

 

 

 

I definitely wouldn’t say it is very attractive for a console, very boxy, but has a nice matt looking finish.

Size Comparison between XBOX One and XBOX One X

It’s definitely considerably smaller against the original XBOX One X. I would think it would be a similar size to the S, but length wise it is about the same.

Microsoft has introduced new packaging icons to help distinguish games optimised for the One X.

If you see the ‘Xbox One X Enhanced’ logo, it indicates updates have been made “to fully take advantage of the Xbox One X’s power”. Some games will feature basic enhancements, some will see the addition of 4K resolution and some will see the addition of HDR. It could be all three, or a combination. Really, it’s all down to the game developers.

Microsoft listed over 100 games that will receive improvements at its Gamescom 2017 press conference. The list includes:

 

 

 

The width as you can see is about 1-2″ shorter. It also comes with a stand if you want to stand it on it’s side.

What is Supersampling?

If there’s one thing I’d love for you to take away from all this information is this: a 4K screen is not required to play great games on Xbox One X. Your games will still look and run much better on Xbox One X than any other console on the market regardless of your television and that’s thanks to supersampling. Supersampling also helps to reduce “jaggies” around the edges of objects and other staircasing-like effects

Think of supersampling as the cousin of upscaling. Instead of taking a lower resolution image and blowing up (creating a distortion) like upscaling’s effect, supersampling takes a high-resolution image and scales it down to your television’s native resolution — be it 720p or 1080p — to bring all the information that Xbox One X is pouring into its games and beaming to the screen.

But supersampling is more than just resolution as any Xbox One X Enhanced title running on at 1080p television is still taking advantage of the power of the system. That makes your draw distance better, greater special effects, and everything else that’s running under the hood of the world’s most powerful console.

Preparing Yourself for Xbox One X

Post by Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief Posted on November 3, 2017 at 9:00 am

 

 

The Xbox One X is launching next week, ushering in a brand-new era of 4K console gaming. In the video above, Major Nelson shares several great new features that you can take advantage of right now to help you get up and running as quickly as possible with the games, content, and settings you want on Xbox One X. We’re here to break each of those features down.

Pre-downloading 4K assets

You can pre-download 4K assets for many Xbox One X Enhanced games ahead of launch. After-all, on November 7 you’re going to want to soak in the Xbox One X Enhanced glory with zero delay.

Simply go to Settings, then System, and finally choose Backup and transfer.

You’ll see an option for Download 4K game content right here. Simply tap A to check the box. You can also go to Settings, System, then Updates and check the box for Keep my games and apps up to date. That way the 4K content will download on its own as it becomes available.

Backing Up Your Settings

Head back up to the Backup and Transfer settings. Here you’ll see Back Up My Settings. This will allow you to transfer your account and key system settings, such as notification preferences, over to your new Xbox One X. If you enable this feature, your settings will be copied to a hard drive. Simply have that hard drive connected when you fire up your Xbox One X for the first time and you’ll be able to import your settings.

Transferring Using Network Transfer

Also under Backup and transfer is the network transfer option. This feature allows you to copy games and apps from your current console to your new console using your home network. You’ll just need to be sure both consoles are connected to the network. And don’t worry, because the feature uses your local area network, it won’t use any of your internet bandwidth.

Transferring with an External Hard Drive

If you have a supported external hard drive, though, we recommend that you use that to transfer games over to your Xbox One X. After all, if they’re on a hard drive, you can just plug it in and away you go to far off lands of Xbox One X Enhanced splendor—no waiting required.

Luckily, the team has enabled bulk transfer across storage devices. Simply go to Settings, System, and then choose Storage. From here, you can choose which drive you want to manage. In this case, we’ll choose the Internal drive. From here, you can manually select what you want to move or copy, or even better, you can choose Select all.

Once you’ve selected the games and apps you want to manage, you can choose to Copy or Move them to the supported external drive of your choice.

By using these great features, you can help ensure the quickest possible path to enjoying Xbox One X with the games, apps, and settings you want.

Finding Your Xbox One X Enhanced Games

Once you’re up and running, you’re going to want to know which games are already Xbox One X Enhanced! You can always go to xbox.com/enhanced for an official look at which games have shipped their Xbox One X Enhanced update.

On your console, you can use the Xbox One X Enhanced filter under My Games & Apps to see which games have an update. Again, be sure to enable automatic updates in Settings, System, and then Updates. That way you don’t have to manually download updates when they’re available.

If prefer not to use automatic updates, you can always check the Updates section of My Games & Apps to see which games have an update available.

Of course, you can always check that your game is running the latest version by simply launching it. If it launches, you have the latest version—it’s as simple as that!

GTA Online Solo Session

SOLO Sessions

 

So there are various strategies for creating a solo session in GTA, this are forever changing as the fun police patch certain methods and new methods are created. Keep an eye on the local forums or the Seven Sins forums.

 

XBOX One SOLO Session using NAT Method

 

This isn’t my video, but this gives you a quick overview how to use the NAT Method with the new XBOX Dashboard. You can use the MTU method for the PS4. This may be patched the future if Rockstar make enough noise or M$ decide to make changes to the dashboard because of the fun police complaining.

 

 

 

The Switch Method (This is my preferred method)

 

I prefer the switch method and this will work with either PS4 or XBOX One. You basically break the network for 10 seconds, this can be done at the router coming into your house using a coax switch or a simple switch you can buy off ebay or Amazon. I break the connection for 10 seconds and boom you alone. The cool thing about this method is, if you in the middle of a mission or in the middle of a sell mission, then if you alone (meaning you don’t have friends in your organization), it will boot everyone out of your session except you and you can continue with your mission uninterrupted if you get it right. Sometimes it will disconnect, but most times if you time it just right, you can continue. The problem with other methods, it normally require you to do something, so doesn’t work if you in a mission. The above NAT method may work if you in a mission, I haven’t tested it, feel free to comment and let me know.

 

Here is a quick diagram I put together for the switch method and some links for the switches below.

So the basic concept or method is that you have some sort of switch in-between your main Firewall Router and your internet network. Most of these switches can be bought for $40 or less, you can even get them around $10. The two switch ethernet switch can be bought off Amazon or eBay for around $5-$20. I will try find one on Amazon for you guys as well as the coax switch if you don’t want to buy or use and internal switch. You only need one of the ports be plugged in, basically it is a switch to switch between two devices, you can leave 1 empty and when you switch it basically just breaks the connection. I have it on my desk where I sit and play with a long cable between the two, when someone enters my session I simply lean over and switch the connection for 10 seconds.

 

Where to Buy

1. Two port Ethernet switch

2. Two Port Coax Switch

3. 16 Port Internal Switch

4. External Router / Firewall
