I don't have a 4k TV but i do have a 2160p monitor. If I plug my PS4P into that, will the game display at 2160p or will I get some sort of butchered downgrade?


You may not have a 4K TV but you do have a 4K monitor (2160p is 4k) so there shouldn't be any problem as long as your monitor supports 4K/60Hz.

If it doesnít, the picture may be scaled down to 2K/60Hz. the PS4 Pro should automatically enable 4K if it detects a 4K compatible device connected to it.

I cancelled my Amazon order because they aren't guaranteeing release day delivery and my order still has an unknown delivery day as of last week...

and just got this today.



it's funny, I've seen a few people stressing amazon delivery and cancelling in order to get the digital download.
has anyone ever really had any problems with amazon delivering on release day or are these just cases of anxious people hyped up and afraid of missing out on day one?

Really, REALLY tiny animals you just shove into your bag of holding.

"Oh hey, my horse ran over a chipmunk-Oh just toss it in the bag then okay."

and if you check those small animals in your inventory there's the option to break them down or if you set up a cook/craft campfire the stringy meat you can cook is usually any small animal you shoved in the bag and cooking it breaks down the other parts (squirrel tails, bat wings, bird feathers...etc) into your inventory

Game offers no explanation and John doesn't even bother to mention it in his journal. Just another day in the Old West, I guess!

there's also a crafting recipe for exploding shotgun ammo in the wreckage if you haven't already gotten it elsewhere in the game

some have bloodhounds and if you stay far enough ahead of them moving from spot to spot you can watch the dogs track your trail and you can actually throw them off your scent by riding in a river for a little bit

Ho ho ho merry christmas

Here is my fishtruck technique hopefully it help someone!!!!

goons only thank you happy holidays

https://youtu.be/9KPvvtm6JrY

Tips:

Obv find a deserted valentine

You want this exact cart because it has no tailgate for your loot to escape from. It spawns in and immediately around valentine from 6am to 6pm

There are several spots along the river this works at but Iím showing you the best one imo. Dense pike spawn, narrow river section for shorter casts and catches, good fish droppin ledge.

Once you clear all the pike in an area (usually 3-6) donít bother looking for more as they shanít spawn

Get good at unloading your fishtruck because you can waste a lot of time fumbling around. First person helps with precision!

Good luck!

I was doing this near the Owanjila dam outside Strawberry and someone rode up and stole my cart while I was catching a fish, my only recourse was to put three arrows in the forehead of his horse he left behind. While fishing you don't get a mini map in the corner of your screen so you should have the map open on the companion app to watch out for thieves and killers.

The geography of this game bothers me.

how about this for confusing geography

you begin the game on the run from a robbery gone bad in Blackwater (1 on the map) and somehow come from the north with your wagon train to the abandoned cabins in the mountains (2 on the map) in chapter 1 and slowly work your way back to Blackwater, and somehow everything in between is new territory you've never visited before

Goes like this:

Go to the blackwater or st denis tailor and open the catalog

Peruse until you find the particular item in the color you want and it is shown on your character

Hold L2 for the remainder of this process

Close the tailor's catalog and open your personal catalog by holding left on the dpad

Go to clothing -> accessories and buy something cheap like the string necktie in any color

Close your catalog

Go to the tailor's changing room and select "boots"

As the view zooms in on your feet, you will see the item you originally wanted appear on your character and you can now release L2

While the item is not actually in your wardrobe, it's now a part of your custom outfit and can be saved as such

Enjoy!

just tried this and it looks like they patched it out at some point

If you rushed through the character creation for Red Dead online and ended up with something that looks like it came from a family tree with no branches, and are thinking of restarting, this is for you

I decided to restart online before I got too far into it because my horrifying, shovel-faced, skeleton of a character was starting to bother me.
Here's a few things I learned in the process.

I knew the gold and cash I had would carry over but wasn't sure about anything else, and it turns out nothing else does.

If you got the free Arabian horse, High Roller revolver, Grizzlies Outlaw outfit, and Alligator saddle back in December you lose them.
They are all still available for you without having to rank up as soon as you start a new online character but you will have to buy them with cash or gold.

Also, it's a minor thing but when you go to the character info/progress menu it still shows the photo and name of your first character. This may just need time to update but after a few missions and several hours of playtime it's still showing my first character.

I was fine with losing my progress and the purchased clothing, gear and weapons from my nightmare beast of a first character but was hoping the free items would carry over as well as the cash and gold, but it's not a big loss.

Anyone got some good advice on earning xp quickly in Online?

I've got one spot in the mines at Annesburg that is good for farming xp after getting a bounty and headshotting everyone that comes in with special ammo, netting 15xp a kill. But wondering if there is a better way?

I started the mission Kill Them, Each and Every One last night and there was a guy on his mic explaining to the other players how to farm the mission for max XP and money.

Instead of following Mr. Horley to the fort right away everyone just hunts the desert for about 20 minutes and sells everything at Blackwater. The large birds in the area (condors, hawks, owls, and eagles) are a good source of cash and any small animal pelt you put in your pouch will always be 3 star perfect during the mission.

We only went about 10 minutes before someone continued the mission and I made a couple hundred bucks and over a thousand xp. As an added bonus you have the entire server to the 4 of you and don't have to deal with aggro players trying to kill you before you reach the butcher.

There are a few direct correlations to real world locations.
The most noticeable to me was Braithwait Manor in Scarlet Meadows, it's a direct homage to the Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana.
It's famous for the double row of live oak trees that line each side of the road leading up to the mansion.

Thereís a chance it may be different now but I doubt it, you will most likely lose your items. There is a reward ticket included with the outlaw pass that allows for change of character appearance but I havenít been able to get it to work yet (endless loading screen) so Iím not sure if it also allows gender swap.

Iím pretty sure you donít need the free ticket from the outlaw pass and can just pay gold for the appearance change if you can get it to work. The menu text says it doesnít charge until you accept, so you can see if it allows a sex change before you commit.

Hope that helps some.

What's the point of Tracking Arrows? What situation are you in where you have the ability to shoot your target but you don't want to?


Zesty posted:

Google tells me hitting a bounty target with a tracking arrow prevents them from "escaping" and gives them one hell of a stamina drain.

So presumably it'd be good for having multiple bounty targets you want to bring in alive. You know, in case you want to make $30 rather than $20.

Exactly this. During bounty hunter missions if they get far enough away from you the red icon disappears from the map and you have to look for them before they escape but with the arrows they stay on the map and are slowed down considerably

We need a cowgirl and a cowgirl perspective. I don’t necessarily want any of the established characters.

Itís been a while since I finished the single player portion of the game so some of the details are fuzzy but I think this would work.

Thereís a bit of dialogue in the opening of the game where someone is saying how they canít believe how Dutch just shot some woman when the ferry heist went bad. Make her your main character.
Thereís also the OíDriscoll part of the story where you find out thereís a past rivalry and Dutch is stealing their heist plans to rob the train, etc...

You play as a new female member of the OíDriscoll gang who is given the task of infiltrating the van der Linde gang and feeding Dutch misinformation and setting him up for Colm OíDriscoll to get his revenge. This is what leads to the ferry heist and why it goes down so bad with every one thinking it had to be a setup.

Most of the game could be the story of how she got to that point and your last chapter could be the planning of the setup and ferry heist. That would let you have a new cast of characters that become involved with the story we know at the end.
