Saw four red dots in a town I was entering. Nodded politely to one of them, then they shot me and rode on. They were all kitted out with bare chests, skin pants and long hair. Killer was called Nightwolf-something.

Use this as a base. You can probably bump up some of the settings significantly.

Ah yeah nice thank you, I knew I'd seen something like that.

I guess the issue is I dunno which settings to bump to get the best return. I love digital foundry but I dunno if I can bring myself to watch their full 30 min video or whatever.

Which shouldn't be an issue because those images are from Hardware Unboxed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=385eG1IEZMU - I thought their settings made pretty good choices. I get like 55fps average (benchmark) on a gtx1070 and 6600

Verified: melee weapons are all there, just swap with ammo-selection keys. Gonna axe you politely to stop insulting my legendary bison/buck getup now...

Surprise! A simple sheep-rustling mission ends in shooting up/through an entire town - I should have just gone and seen what Micah wanted, probably end up with roughly the same result but I'd've *expected* it.

But, now that I have the Rolling Block, I double-challenged with the 660-foot shot plus kill however many enemies without dismounting, with one quick* trip to Hanging Dog.

* - having random rider kite a cougar onto me while I was chasing a snake, running into six more loving snakes along the road north, and checking out a quiet little cabin (with snake #6 outside) vie front door entry OH gently caress GRIZZLY ALREADY MADE A BACK DOOR ENTRY . Sniping assholes was much more relaxing.

Glitch with the mail-off-critters hunting request side job: checklist showed that I had everything, but I hadn't gotten a possum yet. Refused to let me mail off my collection of drippy, fly-infested bad meat until I did so, but eventually completed. Check your actual inventory to be sure you have everything.

Not a glitch but pissing me off: Pearson and the Trapper will hold needed critter parts until time to craft, so they can be donated/sold. *The Fence does not work this way!* Now i gotta find more gold/silver earrings and a chain bracelet...

PC exclusive Cat Eye trinket found (20% bonus duration to all potions).

Preorder? treasure hunt completed. Six gold bars . So, if you can survive the trip down to St Denis, you can have $3500 (treasure plus extra bar at Limpany) about as soon as you finish the bar fight in Valentine... too bad everything worth buying is still locked at that point.

Note: set up camp, cooked a bunch of food and ammo, left the fire... and four bounty hunters with shotguns were waiting. Might want to wait 'til you're back to gang camp, if you have a bounty.

Stupid question time: So, I equip my bandanna or mask, and yet somehow Arthur Morgan still gets ID'd when criming. Is it only for certain crimes, storyline poo poo, or what? I have robberies, assaults and murders to do, most of which don't pay enough to offset the bounty...

From what I've read just a bandanna/mask alone isn't enough. You can still get recognised by the clothes you wear and the horse you're riding.

I think some of it is getting out of the investigation area before cops show up, because I can jack wagons all day long up at Emerald Station and, going offroad, disappear before the search ends. Harder to do in the middle of St Denis, stupid gunsmith deciding to draw down on someone already pointing a gun at his head. (It was amusing to have three different "witnesses" walk in during the robbery/murder/till-looting, say "didn't see nothin', none of my business" and walk back out all .)

If a cop sees you, youíll be IDíd as Arthur and get a bounty no matter what, even if you have a mask on. Donít let cops see you, ever.

What the mask does is stop witnesses from identifying you. So if you have the mask on, and you rob someone, and you either leave them alive or someone else witnesses you, youíll escape without a bounty so long as you clear out before the law comes. But if you are spotted by law, thatís an instant bounty.

There might also be story missions where the rules are different. Or bugs. Or I could be wrong

This is how it's supposed to work but also RDR2 still has the same magic-rear end cops GTA5 does so it's very possible to get away clean and then have a lawman spawn in front of you and gently caress you over.

That doesn't sound right at all for that set up, but honestly the weakest link in your setup is the GPU. Going from a 6C/12T CPU to an 8C/8T is not going to change much honestly.

What resolution are you playing? 1440p?

I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

If you get IDíd as Arthur Morgan, civilians in the same area will recognise you later and alert the law if youíve still got a bounty. Unless you change your outfit, in which case they wonít. Lawmen will still recognise you though.

3440 x 1440 yeah. The second monitor is much smaller like 1920.

Edit: To add, when I'm running the game -- my CPU seems to be the weak link: usually hovering around 90% usage and cranking up to max at times.

The easiest way to make money robbing trains is when they're in the rear end end of nowhere. The easiest points for robbery, from what I remember from doing this for 100% last year, were the train heading south from Wallace or southeast from Riggs station, as well as the train looping around northwest from Annesburg. The Wallace/Riggs train is far away enough from any towns and close to the river where it kind of fucks with lawmen spawns, and the Annesburg train takes you near the Grizzlies where cop spawns are really low. If you really want to make bank, stop the train in one of the tunnels while it's in Grizzlies territory. You would think the massive swamp areas of Lemoyne would make for decent train robbing but there are actually pretty frequent lawmen spawns, and it's too easy to get too close to St Denis.

3440x1440 as well with a 9700K and a 1080Ti here.

Yes both parts are faster than your CPU and GPU but if you're using those Hardware Unboxed settings I don't see how 50FPS max and low of 35 would be that much of a difference. I'm at near 80 FPS max and low of maybe 50?

Edit: Nvm, forgot how crazy the spec difference was between the 1080 and the 1080Ti.

I wouldn't lower the resolution but I would try turning on Resolution scale and running it at 90% or even 80% rendering scale to see how it looks/improves performance

Probably too late for most people ITT but there's a save file on the Nexus that starts you in Chapter 2 with a bunch of the collectathon rewards unlocked (Satchels, etc) and lets you buy every gun very early on, if you've already beaten this on the PS4 and don't want to do all that poo poo over again: https://www.nexusmods.com/reddeadredemption2/mods/78

quote:

1.) All guns are available for purchase at the gunsmith.
2.) Legend of the East Outfit
3.) Stables feature 4 horses (Turkoman, Arabian, Thoroughbred, and Mustang)
4.) Over $3000 starting currency
5.) All talismans and trinkets (Except the Bull Gator and Lion Paw ones due to story barriers)
6.) A fully discovered map
7.) All satchels.
8.) Special Edition Outfits
9.) All Reinforced Trapper Gear

I enjoy metal because of its dark, creepy, intense aesthetic.




While I don't think it's too unreasonable to expect to find lots of badgers in an area marked with a picture of a badger on the map, the game seems to disagree because it sure as hell isn't spawning very many of those little fuckers. I've seen two 1-star ones and a 2-star one, but I need a perfect badger pelt for my new satchel and this isn't working very well. I should probably try someplace else.

At least I found a 3-star bison, so I got a nice new coat from the trapper.
