Update 1.05 killed my red dead
« on: October 21, 2010, 03:05:07 AM »
So I just logged on to play red dead and it makes me install update 1.05, I start the game and notice the new normal/hardcore/friendly menu to enter free roam and I select normal... After a good 2 mins it chucks me into a session and I notice new icons  on the map "land grab" on top of a building in mcfarlanes ranch etc...

Anyway, I decide to change sessions and I sit waiting for 5 mins while it tries to load one and nothing happens, so I quit the game and start it again, same thing, won't load into free roam, so I reboot the ps3 and try again...

Now I cannot get into a free roam at all! It just sits at the loading screen forever! Rockstar what have you done????

Every time R* have added dlc, the loadtimes seem to be effected by it in a real bad way.

When I first started playing, the game took maybe 10-15 seconds to load. but after downloading all the DLC, i sometimes end up sitting on the loadscreen for like 5 minuts before getting in.

R* really need to do something about this (I know more content will mean a bit longer loadtimes, but this is ridicolous)

I cant even download the update right now. It just stops before getting to 100%
Just got the same fucking error 15 times in a row.

It'll download til about 50% and then I get a message saying "There a timeout on the connection to PSN"

I think theres a problem with PSN right now.

Im writing this from my ps3, so I know for sure that my connection is working, but I keep losing connection to PSN. (I actually cant even sign-in to PSN at all now)

I just played a few games of fifa11, no problems at all, a few of my rdr friends are having the same probs with red dead, I think it's this 1.05 patch that is the culprit, everything else is working fine for me at the moment but red dead is unplayable :(

Finally got the update downloaded and installed after 20+ tries.

Still can't stay signed-in to PSN long enough to get in a game though. (I either just get signed out, or get the "Theres a timeout on the connection to PSN" message)

Edit: Everything seem to be working 4 me again (Well the loadtimes is still ridicolously long, but other than that, everything seem to be back 2 normal.)

^ Do you mean that XO update is not out yet, or do you mean there's no issues with the new patch?

v1.05 has ruined this game for me.

The old free roam was awesome, really captured the feeling of a world where everyone was 'in it together'.

Now the player base is split into 3 (that is contributing to the eternal loading loops) and the care-bears just sit in 'friendly' all day.

Worst patch for a long time and I'm surprised at Rstar for implementing this feature.

At least those "care-bears" don't need to worry anymore of getting raped by some mean griefer.

Agreed. I'll be one of those care bears frolicking in FFR. Suits me just fine.
