    Please keep your praise of piracy stuff to yourself. The talk for that is at the place where you bought it from initially. Where is your decency man ?

    Played through it on PS4 first and now still in the middle of the story on PC. (don't want it to end so quickly) ;)

    Patch Notes Update 09/06/2020 Here
    - Fixed a crash that could occur when launching the game on certain hardware configurations

    - Fixed a crash that could occur when switching between output devices on system
    configurations with multiple graphics cards

    - Fixed an issue that prevented the game from launching on some system configurations that used a dedicated AMD graphics card alongside an unsupported Intel integrated graphics device

    - Fixed an issue that prevented the game from launching on some low-end system configurations when using DirectX 12

    - Fixed an issue with a memory leak when using DirectX 12, leading to increased RAM usage and potential crashes during extended game sessions

    - Fixed several random crashes that occurred during gameplay in Story Mode and Red Dead Online

    -- Improvements and Bug Fixes --

    - Added command line arguments allowing the player to limit processor threads/affinity when booting the game. Using both arguments in combination may increase performance and reduce stalls on some systems when third-party applications with significant CPU usage are running in the background

    - Fixed an issue with hardware detection that caused the ‘hardware/driver check’ startup message to display incorrectly when running on some systems

    - Fixed an issue with missing smoke effects on trains when the Particle Quality graphical setting was set to Ultra/High

    Games dead in the water now, shame, had such huge potential.

    At least they are still fixing them, waited a few years after GTA 5 hit PC and patches still happened but it was already shifting over to be more online related and I think they already stopped in 2016 - 2017 with backporting added content to the SP game plus the whole reorganization for SP DLC to be more MP focused.

    A couple of regressions as well and other unfixed issues though the game never crashed as I recall but they were still fixing various mission issues and other stuff after I was done with the game in early 2018 I think?
    Glad to see updates going but I suppose with a heavy focus on online and the funds Rockstar has they can also keep support active for longer and it's in their interest to do so.


    Games probably fairly playable but I have a bit of a backlog as is and the game is also really big both file size wise and content wise so I'm just wrapping up other stuff in the meantime ranging from older backlog stuff to watching videos of some of the console exclusives I was curious on ha ha.
    (Some of the gameplay decisions might be a bit of a struggle initially but the game itself does look like it'd be really fun once it all comes together, unsure if there's much of a modding scene this time around though.)


    EDIT: Wonder how many waited on GTA IV to get away from LIVE and that though I suppose those updates once again broke existing mods which already got hit from some of the earlier patches for that game.

    Not in any hurry to go use "best" cousin Roman as a bowling ball anytime soon though but at some point perhaps.
    (I recall the game being both really fun and occasionally also quite a drag but it's been years.)

    That's cause R* got real greedy and hoped to pull another GTAO with RDR2... and failed miserably. I would gladly have payed more for quality single player content, because this is where the game shines, but nooo let's just pump more microtransactions bullshittery in a terrible cheater and bug infested mess (seriously now, it's like it's a completely different game compared to story mode) to milk the kiddies instead. Well, guess what, kiddies ain't that into westerns, and besides, they already have GTAO (which btw I detest as well, but I admit that did have some fun with it like 2 years ago before it spiraled out of control). :oops:

    Yeah me too. I was constantly searching for treasures and bounties. Don't like the trader much and completely ignored the moonshine stuff. Same business as in Gta so i knew it would get old pretty fast.

    Is anyone really shocked by this?

    GTAO shows exactly where Rcokstar's priorities lie.

    - Glitches and bugs only get fixed when they can be directly linked to players exploiting the game to make money. Otherwise they either never get fixed or get a passing look at in one of the DLCs updates which in turn usually results in something else getting broken.
    - If it doesn't make Rcokstar money then they aren't going to support it. The settings and location for GTAO allowed Rcokstar free reign to release a lot of questionable cr*p. Flying cars, rocket bikes, etc. They could release 10 statistically identical cars with different body work and people would buy them. The setting for RDR2 simply does not allow the same level of 'expansive content', let alone the level oif BS meme content that GTAO got at least not without Rcokstar breaking the immersion of the game's setting.

    The guy in the video stated he wanted more roleplay like content for RDR2, that was something that I wanted for GTAO. The example I thought of was pink slip street races between players, several players would race round a predefined street circuit in freeroam while other players would do things like distract and hold off cops. You would gain recognition or rep for wins and how you behaved in races or for assisting in races which in turn would result in a larger game league table of sorts.

    What we got were god awful stunt races.

    My pink slip races would have taken real work and testing and a level of dedication to integrate the system and make it work correctly with in the game world as well as actually sorting the race mechanics and car classification, what we got could have been thrown together by a five year old in 10 minutes and didn't require any of the existing issues with racing or car classification to be fixed, but it did introduce a new bug in to the game so their is that at least.

    Looks like they finally got the game running on Linux, but I will hold off a few more days and get it during the summer sale.

    Absolutely despise the online. Anyone have recommendations for another single player game as good as RDR2 I've played through the story 3x now and need something new. I can't find anything that draws me in quite like this did.
