DLC linked to download/upload server errors


DO NOT PURCHASE THE SEASON PASS DLC OR ELSE YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD/UPLOAD CHARACTERS IN THE GAME AND WEBSITE


So far, it seems the Season Pass DLC that also has the Nyte Blayde pack is the cause of these errors.

You'll always get this when you try to upload characters from the game -




and this when you try to download characters from the game, even if you already have some queued up on your SR website account -









But, if you use a new PSN account without those DLC packs downloaded, then you will be able to download/upload characters and upload screenshots successfully like normal.

Fix this THQ/Volition.

It seems other DLC like the Invincible pack (which don't contain costumes) will not affect your account.



I know this since I downloaded that on release day at Nov.15 and was able to succesfully download/upload characters normally. I recall buying the Season Pass DLC which included the Nyte Blayde outfits around the 19th/20th in which I finally had those upload/download server errors.



Which gives me the hunch, those server errors are occuring due to those DLC outfits messing up the coding on the servers when trying to upload characters on the website here. Maybe THQ/Volition didn't want those DLC outfits to be uploaded on the site where then people could download them for free without buying those DLCs. Who knows.



There is an easy way to fix that, just let people who have those DLC outfits on when uploading their characters onto the website normally, and when people download those characters -- they end up not having those DLC outfits and have their character naked or something. Simple.

I have installed Nyte Blayde DLC but i dont use the costumes because i didnt like them, i just wanted the bike and car but i have the DLC installed and its working fine for me to upload or download characters. Note! I havent tried uploading a character with the DLC costumes but have done it with other costumes almost daily.


 


Note! Sometimes i get a server error message but i just retry a 2nd time and it have worked for me.

What other information can you give us Scooby?



When did you purchase the Season Pass with the Nyte Blayde pack?



Do you have an account linked directly from the THQ website? Or the Saints Row website here?



What other DLC do you have installed?



Can you try uploading a character with one of the exclusive DLC outfits on?

Great to see I'm not the only one with this issue as well. I was so looking forward to the DLC, but now I can't upload a single thing. This alongside the Gang Taunt error is really annoying me.

How were you able to get the Nyte Blayde pack if you don't have the SR3 season pass? The Nyte Blayde pack is only available at the moment by purchasing the Season Pass DLC.


This doesn't add up.

Is your PSN account from EU or North America?


If you could, can you download the created character wearing the DLC outfit on a separate new PSN account?

The Nyte Blayde/Season Pass is the culprit here as far as I'm concerned. My upload/download worked perfectly fine on launch day and I installed the Genki pre-order and Money Shot packs before I even played the game for the first time. A few days later, as soon as I had downloaded the Season Pass I started getting all of the reported errors.


It's kinda hilarious that the people who chose to support the game the most are taking it up the pooper. This is definitely what's causing this problem.
