    The square box is a Rage engine lod optimization, don't bother asking them to fix it, they didn't for GTA5.

    Not read all this thread, apologies if it's been answered a hundred times but when is this game coming out on Steam. Supposed to be next month but I've not seen any confirmation anywhere of this?

    Thanks.

    From rockstars FAQ I found the answer; Red Dead Redemption 2 - Additional Store Information

    "Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC is also available for purchase at the Epic Games Store, Greenman Gaming, GameStop, Humble Store and additional digital retailers. Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will be available to purchase on Steam this December and will also be available this November as a launch title for Google Stadia." :)

    Yes ... it´s coming to Steam this December, but you still have to use the Rockstar Game Launcher via Steam to play the game!

    I was under the impression you still had to buy most games on Stadia, that it was mainly about not needing a console.

    Oh boy. Half a second latency between pressing the trigger and watching your char firing on screen. On PS4 this is nerve wrecking really.

    Script Hook works like a charm. This will add many more hours of fun for me.

    Out of curiosity I had to test out that theory from the redit post, regarding the tracks in the mud. I haven't edited anything in the .xml file and <DeepSurfaceQuality> is still set to low, and I don't think changing it makes any difference. The values in that file are the way they are for a reason, you start tinkering with stuff you might end up with unexpected results.

    Has anyone else been experiencing issues with the game hanging on resuming a Story mode save due to, what appears to be, a corrupted autosave?

    I have played this game now for almost 43 hours and for most of that time it has ran stable with no crashes or save issues. I manually save in the game regularly and always use a new save slot rather than overwriting a single one.

    Late last week I started getting the odd message from the Rockstar Games Launcher that it had detected "unexpected" data files in the game folder and that tampering was not allowed even though nothing had been altered or added to the folder. I don't even use ReShade or anything like that. Verifying the files revealed no corruption or missing files. The only thing I did use was to add -cpuLoadRebalance to the game's launcher options.

    Anyway, since last week I have started having issues with the game hanging on resuming Story mode. I can see an overbloomed sepia tinged image from the game after the save has loaded but it hangs at this point as the game starts to resume (and the bloom diminishes). I then have to press Alt-F4 to exit at which point the launcher tells me the game has exited unexpectedly and offers me a choice of OK (to exit), Retry and Safe Mode. Retry and Safe Mode didn't work.

    However, I found that if I deleted the latest save - a file called 30015 which I believe it is the autosave - from the Save folder and disable Cloud Saves that I can resume the game using Safe Mode though this obviously resets all my settings. Also, at the moment I am having to do this EVERY TIME I play the game which is getting annoying. Not sure what the issue is exactly; whether it is the Autosave corrupting itself for some reason or if there is an issue introduced with last week's patch that added Tree Tessellation to the settings.

    I have now uninstalled the game and am redownloading it to see if this fixes the issue.

    What is particularly annoying about this issue is that RDR2's Story mode does not allow you to load from a particular save file despite having the option to create multiple saves. The Story mode will only resume from the last save, either manual or in most cases the autosave (with the filename 300015).

    ^^^^Haven't had any issues like that, since I started playing I regularly save over the auto save slot. I always save before starting a main story mission so I don't somehow lose any progress I've made on the side.

    Yeah I haven't had that either, I save a lot, and when I'm exiting the game I do 2x manual saves just to be sure, always save over the bottom save each time (I've used up all the slots).

    Thanks. Appreciate the replies.

    Well this issue has only surfaced since last week's "big" patch but I've now uninstalled and reinstalled the game this morning (which took around 40 minutes to download 105 GB... thank goodness for fast fibre internet!). I also renamed the original local save folder so the game would create a new one from the cloud saves. I'll check how this works later on when I get home.

    I have a workaround for the issue as detailed above and, so far, have not lost any progress, but it is a lot of hassle to have to keep doing this just so I can resume the Story mode every time I play it.

    Modding scene is obviously still in its infancy but some simple (hopefully!) mods I'd really love are:

    1. Increase amount of animals 2x, 5x, 10x, whatever!
    2. Access a certain region you're not allowed to visit until very late in the story.
    3. Longer days (there's a mod for that but really buggy so I've not tried it).

    Just finished the story mode after 95 hours, Wow that was one hell of a game! Ended up with 73% total completion with story at 82% which I assume isn't counting the prologue right? I tell you though this game will go down as one of the greatest ever and has left quite an impression on me. Wow! That's all I can say, 10/10.
