I was only testing things as I did them, and may not have calculated it all correctly. There's nicer ways of saying that you think I should change something, you know?

Are you checking your RP bar during the race?

I'm here looking for help, i just can not get it to work for me. Every time i do it with someone else it works for them.

I've tried reinstalling the update, i've tried changing crews, i've tried using a different gamertag, and a different xbox, i've tried using a new character. I've tried using a custom car, I've tried both players stock, I've tried one person getting first then the other. I've tried constantly streamlining.

I really want to get this to work before it gets patched. I originally started trying as a rank 24, the guy i was with got 28-38 while i got 24-28.

I deleted that guy and made a new one to attempt to reset my personal best. ( i discovered later that didn't matter)

Yes i have the setting correct as its working for other people.

Yes, im beating my first lap time (kinda hard not to)

No, im not crashing.

Please, any help is appreciated, i don't know what else to try

I'm in the same boat as you, from watching youtube videos, it seems the bonus that people are recieving that gives the large rp is called "fastest lap"

This is not to be mistaken with "personal best"

I did a solo race on personal and noticed it said my personal record was 01:21 seconds, which is the world record.

So i started a race and had it set to world record, i beat my old lap record which was 25 seconds, lets just say i got 24.

Started one up with it set to personal and it showed my current record as 25 (old fastest lap)


So i thought i had found the key, but! it did not work, and now it has reverted back to 01:21 when i do personal. So I'm kind of flustered at this point.

I tried a different map and noticed it said my personal record was again the world record. So not really mine, this was also a map that i had never played.


Maybe this info can help someone deduce what is going on. I desperately want to do this before it is patched.

nah, i cant be bothered to sit through ciminal records for another 20 levels, most of the laps i dont get that big boost of xp anyway so its taking a lot longer to level up.

i got it working, since my last attempt ive done a few things

i maxed car mods

i bought an apartment

I did some missions

Unlocked ability to do quick survival

i completed some cutscenes. In particular, one i didn't have on my old character but do now, was the cutscene with Ron and the Bald guy in the trailer.

Coincidence? i don't know, but im just reporting what has changed.








UPDATE



Hello, reporting in again.

Just hosted a lobby where it did not work, and i was doing it for a while yesterday no problem.

So I redid a lobby and changed a few things

I had 3 cars that were destroyed, 1 of them was already destroyed before.

So i got the 2 newer ones out, requested delivery but mechanic couldn't make it

I joined a public server. The time it did not work was on an invite only session.

None of my personal cars were out of the garage

I changed all the settings and closed the lobby before inviting the second player.


Hope this helps, either way just reporting what i see.

For me, it's been taking 15mins to go up a level. You want to go up 38 levels, so that would make it 9.5 hours.

Drove some races on CR yesterday and went from 62 to 69 in 1 hour.

pretty boring but doable!

Is there a reason why for higher ranks it gives you the max rp after one lap and for lower ranks you have to do more laps to get the max rp?

What a pointless question.
Simply - as said many many times before - you get less XP the lower level you are.

Fuck doing this for 9.5 hours lol. Just play missions and do different races.

Might not be quite as fast, but at least it doesn't make you want to slit your wrists.

You see, that depends on the kind of friends you have to keep you entertained.

If you think this is boring, you've obviously never played an RPG and had to do some serious level grinding. For that matter, you've probably never spent any length of time grinding many achievements. This is nowhere near as bad as some other stuff.

I was much happier grinding this than I was listening to Max Payne complain about Passos over and over again during my NYMHC run.

Started doing this at Rank 18 or so, and now that I'm 25. Three-Bit Gangster achievement didn't pop. Anyone have similar issues?

Attain another level or complete a mission. The game doesn't quite know you're rank 25 yet. Just like the platinum medals; I had to get 31 for the achievement to pop.

On a side note, I'm rank 83 after starting about two weeks ago at rank 31. It's intense. Basically on the home stretch before Ghosts comes out and breaks my concentration.

I think we can then assume he passed on Seriously 3.0

All depends on how bad you want it I guess...

Cool

As much as i enjoy getting experience from criminal records, i have went from level 32 to 92 in two weekends from doing Down The Drain. It has decent experience and brings in a lot more money then criminal records. Me personally would rather earn my money fast and my exp fairly fast, because after level 120 does it even matter? Crazy thing happened last night, i saw a level 302 in a race and almost shit myself, thinking how the hell is that possible. I think with how long the game has been out, im ok with where i stand. So if you want a race that gives you good money plus good exp, Down the Drain is my first choice and then The Commute. both only like a minute and 30 seconds for 1 lap race.

A friend showed me this last night. We were on the Criminal Records track using 2 laps, we had both 2 and 3 players. We used super, sports and muscle, didn't try anything else.

Here's the trick to the XP bonus

You have to cross the start of the 2nd lap at 43 seconds and the host needs to cross first. You can cross anywhere within that 43rd second. I swear sometimes it happened at 42, but the guy who showed me insisted on 43 seconds.

You will not see the RP at the end of the race summery screen but when you get the bonus, your RP meter will fill up, we were getting about 1 bar per race or 1/10 a level. I'm sure this changes depending on your level but I don't know for sure.

The trick has nothing to do with how many seconds it takes to cross the line. If you pay attention to your RP meter before and after the race, you will notice that even though it is not going up every time you cross the line, it still goes up in total.

My friend and I (we've basically boosted CR and DtD from level 8 to 100) discovered that sometimes your RP bar only moves slightly after a lap and sometimes it moves a lot. This is because the game either registers your small lap bonus or the large bonus, even though you STILL GET BOTH.

hope that helps

Try it and then tell me I'm wrong. We could get the bonus every time as along as we started the 2nd lap at 43 seconds and the host crossed first. If we missed it due to a crash or bad timing we didn't get the bonus.

Like I said, we boosted 92 levels using the method (more or less). I am 100% positive I'm correct ...
