Is it really fair to call Shark Cards "micro"transactions, though?

I wonder if they’ve left in GTA V’s best feature, the ability to needlessly faceplant on demand.

I hope they're not leaving it out of multiplayer again.

the only real issues with gta online are bad netcode and an unfair economy that is leaned to push people to buy shark cards, the rest of the bitching is equivalent to someone rolling a new lvl 1 character in an MMO and wondering why they cant get the flaming armored white tiger mount immediately

Also reproducible bugs remaining in for 4+ years and auto-banning a huge number of players by mistake, telling them to go gently caress themselves, and then quietly reversing the bans without comment.

I was sad about being relegated to lovely wi-fi for a couple of weeks just around launch, making it impossible to download those eleventy billion gigs, but it seems like I'll be sitting out the worst if it. Feel bad for all you guys, though.

Anybody else have a 9600K paired with a 3GB 1060? How does it perform? Provided it performs at all.

Does the R* Launcher have any kind of game management? Checking local files, seeing when updates were installed, that sort of thing? Basically, anything outside of hitting "play" ? It's kind of dumb you can't see when / if you're patched up.

Yeah, click game, then settings.

Fishstick posted:

That just goes to the general rockstar launcher settings for update throttling and such, I meant game-specific settings. EG seeing when a game was updated, how much space it's taking up, creating desktop shortcuts, that kind of thing.

Sorry, I got it reversed. Click settings, then select the game from the left menu.

I think I already know the answer, but is the Rockstar Launcher capable of resuming a download if the connection craps out or I have to restart the computer?

It can absolutely do resumes, I downloaded that 105gb install across several nights at 2mb/s, even between restarts

Are there any awesome bugs in RDR2 comparable to humans flying by flapping their arms or the hang gliding horse?

Squirrel Burger posted:

150gb is a lot but then i remember that they've tricked a rock into recreating the old west by blasting electricity through it and piped it to your apartment at lightspeed and you know, i'm okay with waiting a few extra hours

I'm stuck on 10Mbit via wi-fi at the moment, estimated time just says "A day remaining".

I wish the game had an "Ignore system limits" like GTA V. Is there any way to force settings? Textures on High looks kinda muddy. Otherwise the settings posted a few pages back work fine for me, although I think I could push them a little further if the game didn't bitch about vRAM.

And fullscreen keeps reverting to borderless for some reason.

Game is brilliant otherwise.

Is there any way to avoid matchmaking so I don't have to play with idiots who fail the intro mission?

Edit: Guess not. So they included a way for people to grief others that prevents them from accessing online free roam.

Make Documents\Rockstar Games\Red Dead Redemption 2\Settings\system.xml read-only after adjusting your settings. Also the only way I was able to get fullscreen to stick and enable ultra textures without the game bitching about vRAM.

Edit: , nevermind, it resets them anyway.

Previously I couldn't run the game because it kept stuttering and crashing. With today's patch combined with the Nvidia hotfix I downloaded(it does not download automatically as part of the regular driver update) it's running perfectly. I played for 3 hours without any stuttering or crashing. And godamn is it gorgeous. This is the most beautiful game I've ever played. I could ride around for hours doing nothing in particular.

Quick question, does it gently caress with individual control panel settings for games?

Have you messed with your games CPU priority? When I put it on high, as that is a fix that works in GTA5, I would get crashes instead of stutters.

Nope. Googling suggests it's mainly a DX12 issue, but I get worse frames with Vulkan.

I think I might have fixed my RDO crashing issue. I had made system.xml read-only with fullscreen enabled. Apparently DX12 doesn't support that.

I'm aware (using this helpful map), but it can spawn in several different locations. I got it immediately when I logged on after posting that.

Completed the tarot cards, too. Thanks to whomever recommended the Collector certification, now I got a big wad of cash. How much do bounties pay on average?

Any particular guns to beeline for?

Also, where can I find the Klan? I wanna try out some dynamite.

you can't tame wild horses online. fwiw i like the collector's Criollo, the lvl 20 coats have endgame speed stats and you can grind to 20 relatively quickly with the online maps

There are only so many camp spaces and unlike GTA online they exist in the game world so there is no way for them to handle you going from one session to the other, if someone else is in your spot.

It seems to move around anyway. So what determines who gets to have a camp?

SplitSoul

Morshu posted:

I can try, but like I mentioned the game apparently thinks my PC can't handle it so the only way I can get it to ultra is if I force it by editing the config files. I can turn every setting to the lowest possible and try to crank textures to ultra and it says I "don't have enough memory"

I have a 1060 3GB and am forcing it through system.xml without issue, just set it to read-only and keep a copy around for when the game updates.

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.

I used an Andalusian for a long time in the single player, and it was really nice. It's a war horse so it tends to do better around predators and gun fights, but it may not be the fastest horse around if speed is your thing.

My friend is more concerned with looks, I already have the best Criollo myself.
