Cannot select friends when going to social tab...
Didn't see this posted elsewhere... my apologies if I missed it.
I attempted to get the daily task of fast travelling to a friend only to find that whenever I switch to the social tab using the PS4 controller bumpers (L1 and R1), I could not select anything on the screen. I could still hit the triangle button to add a friend, but couldn't select a friend (none are highlighted), and couldn't go between "Friends", "Recent", "Blocked", and "Requests". I also tried resetting the game and (wishful thinking, I know) the PS4. No luck.
I'm fairly certain I used to be able to do this using the controller bumpers. Going to any of the other tabs using the bumpers seems to have the top/left most option already pre-selected (i.e. the "Global Tier" statistics box under Profile, or "Level 1" in the Navigation box under Map), however using the bumpers to get to Social has nothing pre-selected for me.
I did find a couple workarounds however, in case anyone else runs into this.
1. From one of the other tabs (Profile, Map, or Settings) just use the direction pad to move the selection up to the 4 tab options at the top and use the direction pad to move to the Social tab. You can then use the direction pad to move the selection down into the friends list and other options.
2. On the social tab hit Triangle to highlight the add friend box (without hitting the X button to select), then hit up on the direction pad to get into your friends list.
Maybe these workarounds are the way most people normally do it, and using the bumpers is for chumps, but in case there is another chump out there, this worked for me.
I can't connect with one of my friends right now either.He's not in my list and I can't add him.He says I still show up in his list.I can talk to him in casino,but can't invite him to my private spaces
If you can't see him in your friends list but he can see you, I would recommend first trying out getting him to remove you as a friend and then try to add you again. If that doesn't work feel free to email email@example.com and we can help you further.
