    I did the Joker settings for me 1080Ti and it's running nicely now. 60-70fps and even 90s. The only issue Im having is the same issue as in GTAV, money! Trying hunting but I seem to ruin all my pelts even though Im 1 shot killing deers, bountys are hard when you're by yourself...the game just seems like a real grind. All this riding around literally for hours real world time for $20.....

    For SP:
    You will get a lot of money by progressing through main story and by doing sidequests(robbing and killing). There is very little freeroam activities worth doing for money (stupid I know). Probably the best way how to get money in free roam is robbing houses or stealing stagecoaches near Emerald Ranch and selling them to that guy there, you will get $40+ for each stagecoach.

    For RDO:
    Yep, it's tedious grind. R* wants you to spend more real money.

    It's so weird the crahes
    Single Player..

    I make a lot of money grinding out on hunting.. One of my favorite spots is in St Denis down the tracks from the butcher in the open swamp area and the field on the other side.. Super easy to find a perfect croc pelt and head shot them, then I roam the general area whoring up croc meat and picking off bird after bird, after bird, any ground critters that may emerge, sell them back off at the butcher, rinse repeat. Feathers, meat, small birds, small pelts, and perfect croc pelts add up fast in the rdr2 world. Quantity, not quality. I can usually yield $40-$70 per sell off.. Springfield and Varmint rifle are your friends..

    Has anyone with the Rockstar Games Launcher version of the game managed to run the game from the desktop shortcut? The launcher created a desktop shortcut for me when I pre-loaded it but everytime I double-click on it to play the game I get a ERR_NO_LAUNCHER message and I'm told to run the game from the Rockstar Games Launcher instead which works fine.

    What is the point in creating a desktop shortcut if it doesn't actually work?!?!?!?

    I think you have to aim for head kills with a bow or specific type of rifle to avoid ruining animal pelts.

    If you're struggling for money then there's the ruins of a town near the Horseshoe Overlook camp that has a building with a gold bar hidden in a chest. On the consoles, this could be exploited to get lots of money from the gold bar due to a duplication glitch. Not sure if that still happens on PC - likely not - but the gold bar can be solid in, from memory, Saint Denis for a decent amount of money (I think it might be $500).

    Didn't take the idea of Nvidia control panel sharpening very seriously at first but now I'm a convert. Seems to give more detail. And max reduction of film grain (slider to far right) does give more detail but can reduce overall image quality. Not as much richness or character in the visuals. I know those terms may not be the best to describe it.

    Taking away too much grain makes it looks more wooden almost sort of like a reduction in contrast. I guess others can explain it better. So it amounts to most people may wind up setting the film grain below 1.0 to whatever suits them like .7 or .3 or so. A lower setting adds more grain. The film grain slider is just below the sharpen slider in NV control panel in the Nov 4 driver update. Which is nothing new in the thread.

    I'm still keeping film grain at 1.0 (no grain or very little) to check out more areas for the graphic appearance. And for the mental satisfaction that I can play with no film grain or very little of it. I'll set it lower if I get tired of the overall look.

    What is 50% of 3840 ? 1920. What is 50% of 2160? 1080. What is 66,7% of 3840? 2561- What is 66,7% of 1440. You can also see that the 0.667 render scale has same performance as the 1440p nvidia upscale :)

    The 1440p nvidia upscale looks worse ingame, but both options look significantly worse than native 4k... which i'd be able to run with sli :(

    But yeah, they want to sell one stupid overpriced gpu, rather than 2 cheaper gpu's... much higher profit margins for them -_-

    hey multi card owners, change Setting ID_0x20247e01 = 0x00000002 to ID_0x20247e01 = 0x00000000 and you'll be able to experience this games MGPU capability.

    Be aware that there will be visual issues such as flickering, but this does show the game has native mgpu support and doesn't require a profile.

    But it isn't usable in this state, unlike for instance in bf5, or metro exodus, where you can also do workarounds to make it work.

    And seeing how poor performance is allround (game not even running for many people) i fear that mgpu support is faaaar down the priority list :/

    The mistake we all make early on is assuming all animals are created equal, they're not, when you look at an animal you will see it's either *, ** or *** quality, early on you will only get perfect pelts if you kill a *** with the correct method (ie small game arrow for small game etc) and kill with the correct shot (usually head shot). Later on
    there is a talisman you can get
    which improves the quality of the pelts so can make a ** become perfect.

    I've looked into this. When the executable is launched from the RGL, additional commands get passed to it, from a (temporary?) file called commands.txt. Either that, or it simply checks the parent process.

    Been trying to get this to work with steam link, but any attempt at streaming this game results in a crash.

    How does the EGS version launch? Do you have to click on the RGL as well?

    Double 1920x1080 in both height and you end up with 4x more pixels, therefore 1080p is just 25% of 4K, not 50%.

    Here's a visual representation, you can fit 4x 1080p roctangles into single 4K roctangle.

    Also nvidia upscaling is not performance free. Hardware unboxed tested it and performance impact was clearly bigger than standard upscaling.

    You claimed before that 1080p is 42% of 4k...

    Scaling wise you go by pixel length, not total pixel amount - thus 4k render res at 200% is 8k, and likewise 4k render res at 50% is 1080p.

    Are we talking SP ?
    Then go to the statues cave and find the treasure.


    For pelts: use the lasso on 3-star animals that are big enough to be lassoed and kill them when the key popup comes up.
    When your lasso hits, the animal will stop, close in a little bit more via horse, then jump off while holding on to your lasso, walk towards the animal (watch your stamina or you might get tired quickly) and when it says 'kill' use your secondary interaction button/key.
    Knife kills have no effect on the pelt quality.
