    Maybe the next patch will bring some fixes to the performance issues?

    And they had all that time after the release on consoles to make sure smooth running; imagine if they had just released it quickly and half-assed :D

    Played for 2 hours, made a break and then the game no longer starts, the whole day!

    In other news, Hitman2 is going to have its last patch update in a few weeks for performance and on the back of all of the DLC/updates they have done this month.

    Any chance we can get an updated performance analysis Hilbert?

    So sad to see this huge gaming companies releasing broken games and patching them later....

    It's a wonder why anyone pre-orders and then pre-downloads games. There's no value in either these days unless you enjoy paying them to do QA work.

    Nice patch, i cant even play for 5mins anymore without it crashing. :p

    GhostRecon Breakpoint was far better than this and yet everybody was pissed about it. LMAO


    [EDIT]
    Ok, i needed to switch on Vulcan instead of Dx12. -sigh- Finally.

    Why!? is there nobody saying! anything! regards to "why?" Rockstar kept this a secret, in my opinion, dick move Rockstar but, it is a business strategy good way to double-dip.

    Nobody out there sees this being a dick move by Rockstar, really! if I had to take a wild guess it had to be because console developers such as Microsoft and Sony probably paid a whole bunch of money for them not to explicitly announced that there's going to be a PC release or maybe to double-dip.

    If you're like me and waited only to buy this on the PC, kudos to you cuz we made it and! $60 richer.

    Unfortunately from what I'm reading it hasn't been perfect for everyone, as far as I know, I'm waiting for the weekend to play the game but, my first-launch experience was, the game launch, (thank God) but, it was in a very blown up resolution where I wasn't able to touch any of the settings I didn't know where there were on the screen, I finally got it working by trial and error, for me it was only a small problem nonetheless, as far as I can say it ran pretty good, I ran the Benchmark It ran good, I was getting pretty good frame rate for the resolution I was running it at 1920 x 1080 ultra settings.

    I must say tho, nice try Rockstar for trying to double-dip into my bank account, I believe they did this to double-dip or got paid a whole bunch of money, either way, they made a whole bunch of money.

    Anyhow hope all problems are sorted for everyone before or by the start of this weekend.

    Good luck to all.

    Sorry for the long rant and please, forgive me for if there are any errors.

    Well for me it was a learning experience; I almost never pre-order. Last game I pre-ordered was SC2. I got caught up in the hype of RDR2. I was naive enough to think the game will just work. Boy was I wrong!

    This 2nd update fixed 90% of the issues I've been having. Two issues that persist are; cursor pointer staying on screen during game, and game won't start under DX12.

    Just got an update to the rockstar launcher as well within the last hour. It looks like rockstar has brought the devs in for some overtime here which is good to see but still for such a highly regarded company this should never be happening in the first place. Although I do still have nightmares from the GTAIV launch.... oh dear god was that bad... and the game is near unplayable on new hardware as it barely uses 2 cores let alone 8 or more.

    It's things like this happening to such a highly praised company that makes me worried for things like Cyberpunk 2077.....:(

    I hope they resolve the launch issues soon! I bought it the evening of release without looking up any info, I have yet to see the game launch at all. Always gives me Launcher quit unexpectedly, if I disable firewall and antivirus it will then tell me the game failed to initialize..... Update to the launcher didn't help at all, issues persist.

    I´m having the same issue with the launcher crashing when I try to play the game.
    Everyone (including RSG) is advising us to update our BIOS (with possible the risk of bricking the computer) or disabling the AV (with possible opening the door to hackers) but I have a dual boot with Windows 1909 in SSD1 and Windows 7 Pro 64 bits in SSD2. Same AV installed in both OS installations (ESET). In Windows 10 I could not make it work even after 3 patches/updates.........in Windows 7 is working just fine. The game is installed in SSD3 and is the same installation that both launchers uses. it is NOT two separated installations.

    So..........is not a BIOS/AV "thing"........the problem is with the launcher and possible the DRM they implemented in Windows 10 that reads something from the UEFI BIOS. Of course we will not get anything from RGS because that will tell so much about the protection to groups like CODEX/CPY, etc

    Got 19hrs played with not one crash, or any graphical anomilies. I can't believe people are still running crappy, system whoring software like AVG in 2019. Disabling that was the first thing everybody should have done. The fact that people are upgrading/downgrading their bios is just insane!

    The game is insanely GPU dependent, and people who are still using Fermi, Maxwell, and Pascal thinking they could just load up 4k with max settings and 60+ fps are crazy. You think that this is the first PC game released that pushed the envelope into next gen territory?

    So bizarre. I mean you have the game running on a version of Windows 10 for XBOX-one which uses X86 Jaguar procs. What the heck... How are they having this much trouble platforming the title for native PC? It literally is beside me... I'd love to understand it though; to be able to grasp it technically not to put Rockstar down just to actually "get" it; because right now - I simply cannot

    A fair series of points. Perhaps these issues have a pattern of legacy hardware among them.

    GPU's, Rams, Bios' Hard Drives' CPU's, Mainboards, etc have nothing to do with people's technical issues. Clean up your systems's software, and play the game at your settings that best suit you. There is nothing wrong with the game!

    I mean it definitely does when the devs have an open issue/ticket for the launcher not working/crashing... It's cool that it works for you but there are hundreds of people posting on the subreddit and hundreds more on the forums that can even get the game to launch. This isn't "cleaning up your system software" this is buggy garbage launcher/drm that needs to be fixed.

    Yeah there were launching issues no doubt, but they've been fixed. I'm talking about people claiming that Nvidia is sabotaging performance on Pascal and other hardware in some ploy to get people to upgrade. That's just dumb.
