I have toggle to aim. If I right click and I aim down the sights sometimes my guy will just randomly un-sight even though I am not touching anything. Anyone else?

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.

Bootlegging is okay but yeah whoever said you lose too much wagon health when you go off track yeeeesh yeah you right. Run over a few pebbles and your health will drop just enough to annoying you.

If anyone wants easy bounty hunter xp, I've been ranking up the past two days using Etta Doyle with this guy's method:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuLmY7Y4gQE

Super easy. No shots fired, about 6 minutes of paying attention, then 25 minutes of AFK / alt-tab, then turn-in. Rinse, repeat after 48-minute cooldown period. At 5-star solo with level 75 outlaw pass, it's $225 and 1875 BH xp per run. That's nearly 1 BH rank per run. This is how I'm maxing out BH.

Never saw anyone else complain when I mentioned it before, but holy cow the game taking me out of right click to aim is frustrating as hell. This doesnt happen to anyone else? Right click to aim, start aiming at something, game will randomly take me out of aiming mode. I have toggle to aim, if I press right click and touch nothing else the game will leave me aiming for 5-10 seconds but will always take me out of it. Even if I hold in rmb, it will take me out of it.

Kind of related, it also happens when those context sensitive buttons pop up. Selling to a butcher? Hold in rmb, press and hold R and maybe 10-20% of the time the game acts like I let go of rmb and I have to start the action over again.

Is it literally just me?

Cage
Jul 17, 2003



I thought about mentioning it, but no its a brand new mouse I bought to fix a universal double click lmb issue. The in-game rmb issue existed in both mice and not in any other game.

e: My very uneducated guess is that it could be related to the high frame rate issue? I suppose later I can throw vsync on and see if it happens.

Right. There are three possible outcomes at the checkpoint. Two good, one bad (agents wave you through, agents inspect and let you through anyway, agents inspect, bust you and open fire).

So say I launch a delivery and have a decent chance of being ignored by agents if I don't get aggressive. But some other random player happens upon the agent checkpoint and slaughters them all before I get there. Did that random player indirectly make my delivery harder than it had to be?

Buying an outlaw pass after you already hit club rank 100 is pretty great. Its just...a bunch of stuff for free.

Well I just found a treasure chest doing one of the rank reward maps, and it glitched while it opened up and I was unable to retrieve the contents of said chest, as they appeared to be in a state of quantum flux. Disappearing and reappearing at random and never giving me the option to claim my reward.
I love the deja vu animals. Had a white blip show up on the map, when I got closer it was a wolf on the ground dying. Mercy kill, get an arrowhead. Clone wolf pops up on map, walks right next to first wolf, lays down. Mercy kill, get an arrowhead.

This happened before with a white blipped dog. Led me to some treasure. Went back where I first saw him and it let me do the event again.

I used to play like this. The first one is the hardest. Then it gets easier. Then you start getting mad at them when they only carry 9 cents in their pockets. Then you find yourself removing any and all traces of identifying information on the body and oh hey you have that jug of flammable moonshine it would be a shame to

No ones telling you not to play the way that you do, but surely it makes sense to you why people would complain. Let us complain!

Anyway, since stories of misfortune make you bothered enough to post, heres mine. I was selling a small trader cart and it was stolen from me from some jerk at the end when I was busy shooting bullets. He ran off with it with it, and I went back to camp and somehow didnt lose any progress. I was able to do another sell mission, except this time while I was busy shooting stuff the bad npcs killed one of the good npcs and I failed it. Still didnt lose any materials and finally was able to sell it on the 3rd attempt. Woo!

Why do you play online? Isnít the occasional danger of getting rooted and tooted the whole point of a wild west online multiplayer game?

I mean I often leave wagons alone, and I even help humans do their things, and I sometimes drop carcasses at their camp. But I play with my posse buddies, and we ride together to ensure that our cart arrives safe. Sometimes it doesnít, because itís the wild west and cowboys do cowboy poo poo. It seems to be the point of the game.
Oh yeah poo poo happens and its great I'm just poking the nerds.

The shooting in this game is very satisfying. I know there are moonshine roadblocks and attacks at the end of trader sells but give me a wave/survival mode at the fort or something and that would be great.

The shooty moonshine mission on the boat and the free roam event on the train arent as fun because they dont let me use my shotgun as much.

The basic "go here and do X" mission for naturalist is to shoot a bunch of poachers and free animals by shooting locks on a cage. First time I did it I didnt have the varmint rifle equipped so no sedative ammo, I shot the lock and ran inside a cabin figuring wolves probably cant come inside? Dunno how I never experienced that before but welp its not true they'll come right in.

For anyone else interested don't worry about rushing too fast to buy the outlaw pass. You can wait until the day before it ends (oct 18th) before buying and as long as you earned as much XP that they required during that time they'll just give you all the rewards at once.

Its kinda like a real version of that twitter hack. Pay us 40 gold and we'll give you 40 gold back plus a ton of other poo poo.

Cheaters are bad, but this game would be bad if there weren't other players to grief interact with.

Zesty posted:

If they could just fix the cheater problem, I could deal with the rest. As it is, most freeroam events are unplayable. Especially if they're PVP, but the cheaters like disrupting the cooperative ones as well.

and then there's loving up free roam in general. Random explosions, animal spawns, time of day changes. Little things that break the session and cause some NPCs (like Harriet) to not spawn.

It's too much.
Ya sounds great.
