Finaly! If the servers are fixed? I doubt it. But it should be possible. But if yes, then it's for both consoles.

Is that a new graphic too?

This is great news! I think this is definitely the first steps to announcing a sequel.

When it worked a few months ago it had a new splash screen when first loading up. (Quickly, I might add.) I can't remember if it was this graphic, but it was pretty damn red! This is excellent news and now we see about those tired old servers and if they've been shown a little TLC.  :D

I was actually surprised to see that this was announced. I must've been 17/18 when I last touched this game. It'll be nice to play this game again, maybe even get back into Shootouts again or something if the servers are populated enough lol.

In regards to fixing the servers.. I doubt it. When they made Black Ops available for backwards compatibility, they were a ton of people modding. Not on the Xbox One of course, but on the 360. Too my knowledge, it wasn't formally addressed or fixed.

I wouldn't be shocked to see:
A. Same broken multiplayer
B. No multiplayer option
I hope I'm wrong...

Is it Friday yet?  For a split second I thought it was another rumor when I first saw this on Facebook. I hope that I can play my disc and not have to buy the digital version....any news yet on that?

The multiplayer better damn sure work now!!!

From what I understand about BC games is that you put your disc in and it downloads a digital version which it runs through an emulator. I think the disc needs to stay in the drive to play though.

I'm really thinking about buying the digital version just so I don't have to swap discs all the time. #lazylife

Word of advice: if you want to continue your 360 save you'll need to fire up the 360 and switch your save to cloud, rather than HDD. Just load your save, go in and switch where it saves, then save. Voila, on Friday your levels, SP progress, titles and gold guns will be waiting for you. If you can't do this, well, get ready for this when you start multiplayer...

i would think, R* would say it wouldn't have multiplayer when they announced it.  but i'm guessing it will be A.  in other words if you guys want to play gang matches, better add some Mexicans onto your friend list to invite you into them. 8)

Really?  I played late last night in a public session and it was all messed up. Private sessions work fine though.

Ahhhhh. Yea, sorry i guess the stream i was watching was lucky to be in a functioning lobby. We'll see if Rockstar can continue to ignore people who are having problems with the game, their newswire article is 99% complaints about the broken MP.

There's a petition or two popping up as well. I'm not expecting much to come from it though. Happy to be proven wrong though.

Red Dead Redemption Backwards Compatible Keeps Crashing

So I think this has something to do with DLC.

I put my RDR disc in on Friday night, set it installing and then loaded up a multiplayer game.  Loaded fine, but when I go to the 'Outfitters' page it just loads and loads.  I tried several times, same thing.  I read on a forum somewhere from a while back that if you have purchased the Undead DLC and deleted it, then this will crash the 'Outfitter', presumably because there are characters there from that now deleted DLC.

So, I searched for the Undead DLC and installed it, then noticed that there were about 5 other DLC 'ready to install', installed them all and now it crashes on the title screen.  I've deleted everything and reinstalled it all, but still crashes on title screen when it's trying to load the DLC.

I saw something in another thread about differences between Undead Collection and Undead Pack but I can't remember which I bought.  I'm just selecting the stuff it lists as 'ready to install' under the 'Manage game' page.

Anyone had similar trouble or solution?  Is there an official page I can ask this question to developers of Red Dead or Xbox?

Thanks for your help,

jayrdi

Yes, but I mean I can't get into the game at all, either single player or multiplayer.  It crashes at the title screen.

That's sounds more than what the server issues have been doing. That sounds like the disc is actually messed up or something.
Worse maybe seeing if you could get a cheap copy from somewhere (lots of retailers have been clearing them out over the last year or two) and give that a go.

But if I only install the game without any DLC it works but crashes when I try to load Outfitter.  As I read previously about this being an issue if you installed Undead Nightmare and then deleted it (as there are exclusive characters from that DLC that appear in the Outfitter), I tried installing the DLC to fix the problem.  That's when it starts crashing at title screen - at the point where the game logs you in and loads your DLC.  The disc is in excellent condition.  I think it's a DLC problem...

I would just play without using the DLC but I want to play poker!

Yes, I tried that.  I just spoke to Xbox Support and they said that it's down to the servers that RDR uses not aligning correctly with the licences for user purchases.  Apparently this is something they're working on and should be resolved in the next day or two.  So that's good news and a relatively quick fix!

Thanks for your help and advice.

Did they tell you something about the fuc king multiplayer that dosent work? are they planning yo fix it in the next era?

Haha, I think they have a long list of bugs they're working through although they couldn't say anything specific.  XBox Support is passing all the error messages along to RockStar, so I wouldn't fancy their job.

I'd give it a few days and try again.

I do like the sound of them at least doing something with the servers, even if it is just fixing license issues so they can make more money from people playing/buying.
It shows that at least they are looking at the ability to check out the server health etc. Maybe there is hope for another patch yet.

I dont think there´s hope that they¨ll fix it,it dosen´t make them more money than it already made at this point.... they know that no one is going to sue them and if someone does they´ll fix it by compensating that specific gamer, which is far cheaper than what probably fixing the game costs.

What's the deal with multiplayer saves, can you import them from 360?

Post by: outlawfisherman on July 15, 2016, 07:30:23 PM
Yeah, BC is basically us playing on 360 via the xbox one.  We have to use the 360 menu and invites and everything.  But what that means is even if you're on 360, you can still play with someone on xbox one.
