    Default Freezing profile at load screen

    If you have been having issues where you are loading into a game mode and your game freezes I need some information from you. Please reply and fill out the following questionnaire about what you were doing when your profile froze. Please answer EVERY question applicable.

    Were you playing splitscreen?
    If yes, was the profile that broke playing on the top or bottom screen?
    If you were playing in splitscreen, were you playing with two profiles or one profile and a guest profile?
    Were you connected to Xbox live?
    If you were not connected to Xbox live:
    Is your Xbox completely disconnected from the internet or was your party type just set to Local?
    Were you playing with the Title Update?
    Did affected profile play in the beta?
    Is the affected profile Gold, Silver, or Local?
    Have you been able to get into any game mode since your profile started freezing?
    If so, have you noticed any issues with your weapon HUD or any strange text onscreen?
    Was the affected profile on the harddrive or a USB at the moment it first froze?
    What is the size of the device?
    Did you have Gears of War 3 installed to your hard drive at the moment you first froze?
    Look at your achievement list. What icon do you see next to Gears of War 3?

    What game mode were you playing?
    If Campaign:
    • What Act and Chapter?
    • Where exactly were you in the chapter?
    • What Act and Chapter did you start at leading up to the freeze? (Example: Act 1 Chapter 1 to Act 5 Chapter 2)



    If Horde:
    • What level and wave?
    • What enemies were present?
    • What exactly was happening at the time?


    If Beast:
    • What level and wave?
    • What locust were being played?
    • What exactly was happening?


    If Versus:
    • What match type and map?
    • Were there bots and how many?
    • What exactly was happening?


    Are there any other peculiarities you noticed that may be helpful?

    I was playing split screen.Don't know wich profile broke.We where playing with two profiles.We were offline.Didn't play beta.Can't play anymore.Playing horde,trying to load a new map.
    Anyway i want you to know that i found this issue in Gears 2 too,my friend's profile can't play gears 2 anymore.Then i had trouble with Gears 3 because of the new format of the disc,fixed by trying to install it 10 times and it worked,played 2 days and now i can't do nothing.
    EDIT
    I have 3 accounts,one of them(the one that wasn't used to play split screen) works,but if i can't play with my account i will not play.

    Ok I do hope somebody is really doing something to fix this problem... COME ON epic game like this comes out and certin ones are stuck on the sidelines for going on 2 weeks now??? What kind of compensation are we the certin few looking to get? im thinking at least a month addition to xbox live would be obvious and another possible weapon skin or character code would be generous... all im saying is that some of us have played all the way from gears 1 to this game and loved it, unless this is happening to your profile you have no idea what its like to have this game see it everyday and cant even play it because of a profile issue??? and someone else can sign in and play no problem??? Comment on this, lemme know if you feel the same or at very least stand up and ask epic whats being done? what kind of time table are we looking at for a solution to this problem? what kind of compensation for our "pain and suffering"? LOL... but seriously whats going on? whats being done? Please reply and EPIC GAMES I MEAN YOU! SOMEONE AT THE GAMESITE WHOS AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM... thank you...

    Bottom

    Two Profiles

    Were you connected to Xbox live?
    Yes

    Did you play in the beta?
    Both profiles which were playing played in the beta

    Have you been able to get into any game mode since your profile broke?
    I managed to get into a Team Deathmatch game briefly but it froze at the end of the 2nd round I played.
    All game modes I try including Team Deathmatch will freeze on the loading screen.

    The only way I was able to even get this far that one time was by doing the following at another users suggestion:
    - Sign out of my profile
    - Select game type and appropriate options but do not start game
    - Sign in with my profile (takes you back out to title screen)
    - Go in and start game as normal

    If so, have you noticed any issues with your weapon HUD or any strange text onscreen?
    When I did briefly get into the game I did not see any issues with the weapon HUD or strange text onscreen

    What game mode were you playing?
    Campaign

    What Act and Chapter?
    Act 5 Chapter 2

    Where exactly were you in the chapter?
    When the freeze first happened we were just taking the Silverback down the elevator and were in the middle of the fight after the elevator stops and you get off. Hope that is specific enough, I am not sure what other info I can give on that from memory.

    My game never froze while playing, just a few times while trying to play coop. Removed my friends gt that was on a flash drive and then it loaded fine. Tried to play single player horde on casual (don't know the level) the next day and it wouldn't work.

    Also replying for a roommate whose gt is also now messed.

    What game mode were you playing?
    If Campaign:

    What Act and Chapter? Act 5, unsure of the chapter
    Where exactly were you in the chapter? Just turned off the three generator switches to turn off the Maelstrom. The game froze up after loading the cutscene with Adam telling you to cut off the coolant. After turning the box off and on again, and loading the game again, my profile (player 2) had reset to level 1 (from level 9), my beta unlocks had gone and my campaign progress had disappeared. My achievements are still present, however.

    How can we fix this? I don't want this to be another massive headache like the profile freeze in Gears 2.

    Were you playing splitscreen?
    Yes.

    If yes, was the profile that broke playing on the top or bottom screen?
    Top.

    If you were playing in splitscreen, were you playing with two profiles or one profile and a guest profile?
    One xbox live profile (mine) and a guest profile provided by Gears called Player 1.

    Were you connected to Xbox live?
    Yes, through my xbox live account, SilentAngel157

    Were you playing with the Title Update?
    No, I do not believe so, unless the title update was the compulsory 2MB download.

    Did you play in the beta?
    No.

    Have you been able to get into any game mode since your profile started freezing?
    No. I get past the EPIC and Microsoft logos, and then the loading screen with Marcus and the Lancer appears. That loading screen remains indefinitely.

    If so, have you noticed any issues with your weapon HUD or any strange text onscreen?

    Is your profile on the harddrive or a USB?
    xBox Hard Drive that came with the xBox.

    What is the size of the device?
    Standard, 4GB Slim Hard Drive.

    What game mode were you playing?
    If Campaign:
    What Act and Chapter?
    Before I stopped playing split-screen, I had just finished Anvil Gate. I do not know which Act or Chapter this is. Although one thing happened at that mission. There's a little cutscene when you ride out to get Anya and Sam (I think), where a Locust guy kills a COG. After the cutscene, you're left standing there aiming at that Locust. That particular Locust for me was invulnerable. I couldn't kill him. It was after the death of big Lambet dude that we stopped playing split screen campaign. Hope this helps. Good to see you're working on the problem.

    Where exactly were you in the chapter?
    At the end. We quit before the next Chapter began.

    Where did you start in and end in the campaign in a single session? (Example: Act 1 Chapter 1 to Act 5 Chapter 2)
    Started at Act 1 Chapter 1, went to the end of the events at Anvil Gate, before you go off to Mercy.


    Hope this was helpful and that a fix is released soon. Cos I can't even access the main menu.

    Two

    Were you connected to Xbox live?
    No, but we were system linking. We connected to Xbox Live the next day though.

    Were you playing with the Title Update?
    Yes

    Did affected profile play in the beta?
    Both of them did

    Have you been able to get into any game mode since your profile started freezing?
    After it froze we immediately reloaded campaign and it froze again, after the second freeze we couldn't get past any loading screen.

    If so, have you noticed any issues with your weapon HUD or any strange text onscreen?
    No numbers for remaining ammo and when switching weapons -/0123456789 appears 20 or so times and covers right half of the screen

    Was the affected profile on the harddrive or a USB at the moment it first froze?
    Player 1 was on a hard drive and player 2 was on a USB drive.

    What is the size of the device?
    It's a new 360 Slim with a hard drive of 229 GB. The USB drive is 3.3 GB

    Look at your achievement list. What icon do you see next to Gears of War 3?
    Red background with a black crimson omen in the upper right corner kind of like what's on the title screen if the background was red


    If Campaign:
    •What Act and Chapter?
    Act 4 Chapter 5

    •Where exactly were you in the chapter?
    We needed a rotor and fuel for the sub, we chose to look for fuel 1st. It froze mid checkpoint when you have to move the ramp to board the boat with the crane for the fuel. The freeze corrupted the campaign files since it happened while saving a checkpoint so I might be off by an checkpoint or a chapter.

    •What Act and Chapter did you start at leading up to the freeze?
    Act 4 Chapter 3

    Don't know if this is relevant, but
    Me and my brother (Forum name: Veteran Gear, Gamertag: HaloJesse) both get reset after freeze. Lost all levels (He was level 31 and me 29), ribbons, medals, mutators etc. during the time we were playing offline (20.9. - 27.9.) He can play, I can't. He played to level 6 and got reset again. After first reset my brother didn't have golden gnasher and sawed-off shotgun (Veteran gear unlockables), after second reset he had them.

    Playing splitscreen with 2 profiles (wes1970-top and brycart97-Bottom). Brycart97 is the broken profile. We were connected to live but only playing local Co-op. We have the title update. Also deleted update and still not working. Brycart97 did play the beta and has played multiplayer on and off since release. Now he is unable to get into any game mode. Profile was on harddrive/usb. I deleted caches saved games and recovered the said profile. Also tried multiple 360s. Did not help. We had just started this session of co-op campaign. I believe it was act 4 chapter 4, definitely ghost town during the cut scene after meeting the old guy who set charges on the pipelines. Went to load screen and froze, requiring a hard reset of the xbox. Since then he is unable to play any game mode. wes1970 profile is fine as far as I know. Also brycart97 has a marcus fenix icon on achievements list. wes1970 has the red omen icon.

    My friend cannot play any game type.
    It's definately a problem with his Gamertag as I can play on both mine and his console on the same copy of Gears 3 but he cannot play anything on either. He crashes just before loading of the level where on versus you see teams and select a character.
    Leading up to the break we were playing Horde.
    We played offline splitscreen he was bottom screen.
    We had the title update.
    His profile was saved to a memory card.
    We both werent involved with the beta...Spoilers
    We both have the red Omen next to our Achievements.
    We deleted all his gears 3 saves but hes still got the title Hardcore soldier tho but not the medal. He's now reset to level 1...And not happy about it. His gamer Tag is SikBagOnStandby

    Look at your achievement list. What icon do you see next to Gears of War 3? The same one as always.

    My entire Xbox keeps freezing when I start the game up at the menu screen. A message will appear saying "loading profile" and my Xbox will become completely frozen. I can't even access the menus. This problem started on the 24th or 25th of Septmeber (Can't remember exactly, but quite positive it was the 24th). Iv'e played several other Xbox games and haven't encountered the same problem. I've deleted and recovered my account, installed my game, and used a different GoW3 disc. I can still play the game on my other profiles, but my main gamertag keeps freezing. Any help would be highly appreciated!

    If this might help the pattern so far seems to be that the majority of Broken profiles were playing splitscreen campaign and only one of the profles seems to be effected my brother can still play all the modes on his profile, and we took a couple hours break and when we came back I couldn't play anything. Please solve this problem as soon as possible because it really is just game breaking and it should be your top priority.
    Thank you for time.

    My picture is of Marcus with my xlive profile. With my other profiles, it's the Red Omen. None of my profiles work, before you ask. Further, I'd be willing to be reset to level one, hell, I'd be willing to have all my Gears 3 achievements reset as well if I could just play the game. I'd get them back pretty quickly... So if this reset is an option, please, do it my gamer profile as a test if you want: SilentAngel157.

    I think they're avoiding that this time around. Although, I agree. I don't care if they have to reset my rank and achievements. I just wanna play Gears of War 3!
