Who are you people who have zero time to play games? I have an hour commute, wife and kid so don't cry to me about it.

If you honestly get frustrated at spending 30 seconds every hour making sure that the character you're playing as is all good, you really might want to take a deep breath.

Yeah there are games for this kind of gaming, which is fine, like mass effect Andromeda or any final fantasy game or metal gear game

Is it me or are RockStar games just abysmal on PC? They remind me of the old clunky Final Fantasy ports from the Playstation. I have a pretty beefy rig, but it still gets clobbered under GTAV

I can't test rdr out because I'm not at home but GTAV runs super smooth for me. I7, 1080.

I did play a few hours of online mode last night and it's a phenomenal cowboy simulator. I made an ugly Mexican / French bandit named Monroe Murrieto and as soon as I had enough cash I bought a poncho. Gonna use dual pistols and leave rifles on my horse.

Next step is to get nicer clothing. Especially Spurs.

Also shooting players in the back of the head is ultimately very satisfying. Shooting in the air and then telling someone in voice chat that my name is Monroe Murrieto then shooting their face is even better.

I cannot for the life of me remember what game it was but it had similar controls to the horse in this and basically trained me. But yeah the horse is dumb to control. The fact we don't have an autorun is brutal af

Online isnt the wasteland it was but it still struggles to keep me coming back. The bounty/trading/collector things are profitable but get boring. I definitely have more fun when I'm im the mood to make my own fun and don't get hung up on the money grind.

It took GTAO a long time to become the weird thing is it today, I'm sure RDRO will get there eventually. The original RDRO was really engaging, but that took ages to get good too.

While I don't feel totally contrary to you -- online mode has completely sucked me in.

I wasn't aware that aiming is easier on consoles. Interesting. It's felt super wild west cause of the difficult less than a laser aiming. I had a wild af shootout with someone the other day cause of it.

Got this going at last, just had to reinstall the launcher. Game is god drat smooth on my i5 6600k and 1070 at 1440p with a mix of high and medium settings. Things get hitchy in towns though, looks like I need to fiddle with CPU affinity and process lasso as I cant watch the power draw on my PC drop in real time. Things hitch? Draw drops 140 watts. Hitch is gone? Back to normal draw levels.

I put this up in my discord for the guys but I think this will help:

It seems the most taxing graphics options (in order) are:

1. MSAA
2. Reflection Quality
3. Water Quality
4. Volumetrics Quality
5. Near Volumetric Resolution
6. TAA
7. Shadow Quality
8. SSAO
9. Texture Quality
10. Volumetric Lighting Quality

All the rest seem to have meager returns.

I got the permanent posse bug which is pretty annoying. Unlocked it for 200 bux and promptly was told I have 0/0 slots available lmao. Apparently this is a year old bug which tells me that rockstar are loving liars about rebuilding the engine for the PC.

That said rolling around with friends doing missions, bounties, hunting or just being a piece of poo poo bandit it outrageously fun.

It's not even an i5 issue, it's somehow tied to lack of SMT which makes no sense. I have an 8 core/8 thread processor but ended up having to refund the game because it was freezing constantly while I see people with 4 core/8 thread processors running fine.

It's mind boggling

It's not and permanent posses have a bug that eats 200 in game cash and the only fix is to create two permanent posses.

Also perm posses only exist when the posse leader is on. So if 6 people in the posse are playing but the leader isn't, you can't posse up automatically

Nah it's not just them. Once you can mentally convince yourself of the abstraction it kinda makes sense, but the fact that you can see Saint Denis from the mountains pretty well breaks the illusion that you are actually multiple states away. They did try and cram a ton in, and as a result you have sudden and arbitrary shifts in environment and you never do have a feeling of wide open spaces when literally you can see the mountains and dense forests at almost any time. It's a cool little world but it does not simulate the feeling of the expanse of the plains states at all.

The game also ignores the supposed distances constantly, only to every now and then have Arthur say "that's 2 states away" or something at some point to remind you of it.

The hell that would be traversing the Midwest on a horse. I strongly commend rockstar for taking the route they did.
