Yes I had missed one, so I grabbed a helicopter and watched this video to check which ons I had got and/or missed.
Thankfully once I saw this user pick them up, I remembered which ones I had got, so I didn't need to fly to all locations. It's good video to watch while playing. I hope this helps, let me know if it did or not and I see what else I can do.
Well for some reason every time that we create a crew lobby or friend only lobby, only the creator of said lobby is gaining access to it upon returning to free roam. So bud, yes it is very normal.
This is extremely frustrating and everyone i have talked to has these same issues. My only advice now, is for you to do as I said above but as soon as you both leave a job, race etc. the creator of that lobby should send invites to their friends, from the friends menu individually.
It's a major pain I know but Rockstar are fully aware of this issue and have informed us that they will be fixing this.
I guess it is just a matter of when now.
Just do not try to select "Join your friend/join your crew members online," as this is when you are told "Failed to join/Failed to find compatible session," and you are immediately put to either another lobby or back to story mode.
In short... Use the INVITE system only! At least until these issues are fixed.
Good luck and let me know if you need any more help in future?
All the best.
@raydog44: This was one of the issues with the online mode of the game.
I think it is fairly safe to say that it is not his or your fault, as it has happened to many players before you, including myself on many occasions.
There was a new patch released today and you should both try again? I haven't had the issue since Tuesday 15th October and the game has been better for it.
Just in case it does happen again, I recommend that you both try this...
Let your friend join the online game mode first by selecting the option from the story mode (do not use the online option as the game loads in), then once your friend has chosen to "Launch GTA Online," he will be prompted to which he would like to do before joining, select friends only session and then once in game, he should send an invite to you for you to join.
Let me know if you need any more information or if this issue has been resolved, I would be happy to help.
