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.
