A location like this would be a good test case.

(Image removed from quote.)

I know exactly where that is!  It is a little bit south of Van Horn...Van Horn mansion or something like that.  When I was playing as Arthur, went down those stairs and there were 2 guys...one was laying on the floor and the other was sitting at a table with his head down. I thought they were dead! Then as I looked closer they were moving!  There was some monayy on the table and when I went to take it the guy sitting at the table grabbed Arthur's hand. He started shooting and the other guy got up and started shooting. I was in first person mode and nailed them both with dead-eye!  Definitely was one of the many WTF moments in that game!

But, yea...I was thinking about recreating some of my screenshots for comparison. I mean, just riding around looking at the scenery in the distance...it's so dull! Very similar to GTA's graphics.

Ok, the graphics downgrade is significantly noticeable to me. They took away ambient occlusion (had to look that one up)! Maybe the people who don't really notice it are the ones who have an Xbox One X and 4K TV's that have enhanced graphics or those that just don't care about graphics.  Most of my screenshot collection are photos of how light reflects on different things at different times of day/night...those of you on my xbox friend list have seen some of them. I spend quite a bit of time just taking one perfect shot. I enjoy doing that and was what I thought made the game stand out above most other games. Now Rockstar have taken that away from me and many others that enjoy in game photography. Not only was this good for photos....it made the game that much more immersive. It felt so real, like you are really there and added to the mood of whatever you were doing depending on where you were.

I paid $100 for this game and after all the hype I expected it to be everything I wanted and more. Or you would expect to at least get your money's worth, right? They have taken away something that we have PAID for, something that was said to be included in the game and was raved about in pre-game screenshots. I have never been so disappointed with Rockstar than I am right now.

And if their reasoning for the downgrade is for what you said, Pug.....this is going to confirm my fears of them eventually making a remake of this game for the next generation of consoles just like they did with GTAV. If my Xbox One or S can't handle a graphics upgrade without affecting overall performance at this early in the game's development as far as new content and updates....this tells me that they might eventually stop supporting old versions of the xbox one and only support the X and whatever else is rumored to be coming out next.  It only makes sense for Rockstar since all they listen to is money, money and more money.....

Just got home from work and I have been hearing that there's an update for RDO and they have done a graphics downgrade????? Is this true? Also, RDO and GTAVO are both down....not sure if that is still going on or it was just for a few hours. I'm afraid to do the update now....the graphics are the only thing they got right...that and the story.

Logged in last night for a little bit just to buy some new clothes.....aaaaaannnnd now I'm broke....but, now I won't freeze to death when I go up to the Grizzlies.

I have my doubts that Rockstar will add what I want....and basically what most people want (private sessions).  I am trying to have hope that they will make things better for everyone! I mean, they HAVE to do something...people are going to go play other online games and forget about RDO.  I see a lot of people on my friend list that have already moved on to other new co-op games like Division 2...friends that have played RDO and now are bored of it and have not even come back for the updates.

Just read that....I was wondering if they patched the off map to Guarma glitch.  Well, at least I got there a couple of times. That was one of the very few things that I enjoyed doing in that game. Very sad.

Had to update to play story last night. They messed something up with the way the hunting knife is holstered....it,um..doesn't go into the holster now...it sits above it in a weird position. Have not noticed anything else different or if they messed up anything else in story as a result of this stupid update.

Well, if they do the same with private servers for this new game....I'd give it a try. The March 12th early access is for PC only, right? Let me know if one of y'all play it and I'll watch on Mixer/Twitch.

Rockstar better get their ass in gear if they don't want this game to take away their player base.

Yea, I heard they dropped the values of pelts and fish.  And something about looting houses for jewelry. 

So, now I have literally no way of making money unless I do the same story missions over and over, repetitive and boring stranger missions or PvP (which I won't do).

Thanks for nothing, Rockstar!!! I'm sticking with replaying the story and finding another game to play online or going back to GTAV Online.

They have made online worse...and here I am thinking it's got to eventually get better. I don't even want to log on after seeing all the disappointed comments/reviews. AND, I have heard that when some people downloaded the update it messed up story mode.  That better not happen to my game....I will be spitting nails mad!!!!!!!

That looks interesting...but if they don't have private servers, I'll take a hard pass.  I haven't played Ark, but it looks more like a western style PUBG to me.

I have heard of those things happening. I've only experienced stranger missions not working correctly. But, I was on last night and everything seemed to be ok.

Only thing I can think of is they are working on things for the new update, I guess... and the servers get messed up while they are doing it.

Red Dead Online / Re: Journal not being updated with Vampire markings.!!
« on: February 18, 2019, 03:48:37 PM »
Yes, there is a vampire! It is a stranger mission or actually an easter egg. But, after finding the 5 clues....all writings on a wall found in St. Denis....you will be able to encounter the vampire in St. Denis at a certain spot between the hours of midnight and 1am.  He killed me the first time but I was able to get him to spawn again. I think I had to wait a couple of in game days.  Look it up on YouTube.  You also acquire the ornate dagger after killing him.

I don't know for sure...I haven't really tried to compare the behaviors of some of the horses.  My big Shire is a big baby sometimes and he will outright run off when he sees a gator. I think the worst place for any horse to get spooked is in the swamp.  He acts the same way when he sees one of those little black bears that don't even attack you.....so, I don't know why the horses are even afraid of them. Maybe when the horse is tired it scares more easily...I don't really know.  Since he's a "Dutch" Warmblood.....maybe he needs a "plan" or just a vacation to Tahiti!  LOL!

I know! That swamp still freaks me out at night....I don't know who gets more spooked me or my horse! LOL!

Last night I was on my way back from the swamp heading into St. Denis....just on the outskirts of town where there is farmland and a couple of houses.....I heard something whizzing by me....it was arrows!  Two of those creepy swamp people followed me from the swamp. It was very early in the morning, I think. Never had that happen! I killed them both and I was thinking...I'm so close to town I hope I don't get wanted by the cops. Glad that didn't happen.

As I've said before....I am finished with the main story and epilogue but this game continues to surprise me with different encounters!

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Challenges and Side Quests
« on: February 17, 2019, 01:14:27 PM »
I am currently working on the Herbalist challenge which is very time consuming, so I figured I would get it out of the way...been putting it off for too long because I hate looking for plants. I am on #9 to find all 43 herb species...to find out that even though I have already found most I still have to go repick them all.....is such a pain! What I have left (thank god I wrote each one down) is 9 more orchids.......BUT, some won't spawn until you have done certain parts of the Duchesses and Other Animals exotics side quest. Ok, that's fine...it will be a nice break from that tedious task and I will find the orchids as I complete each part of the quest!

The RDR2map website and Youtube have been a tremendous help with doing these.  For the exotics side quest I was happy to find a great hunting spot to find all 20 herons for part 2.  Go to Clemens Cove where the horse fence is and that entire area near the water is a spawning ground for so many types of birds!  I found myself not only looking for herons but studying all types of birds I could not find before!  To get more to spawn, either set up camp and sleep or save and reload your game!  I mean, there just isn't a few birds here and there....there are FLOCKS of birds flying by and some just land on the ground to pick at dead bird carcasses.

I hope this is a help for someone else working on this challenge/quest!

It should show up on your in-game map as a little drawing denoting that it was found. Sometimes you have to zoom in when viewing your map to see details like that.

Also, there is a website (www.rdr2map.com) where you can keep track of your collectibles if you make an account...pretty sure it's free.  Extremely helpful for locating those hard to find collectibles! The map is interactive...so you can search for an item and track that or you can check off which items you want to see or don't want to see on the map! It's great! I'm always using it! It's been a work in progress and whoever created that map is always adding to it!

I'll have to go check that out! I love finding little hidden details like that!

Fortnite and Titanfall hooked up and had a baby called Apex Legends. That's probably where they all went.....

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Re: Future Story Mode DLC a Possibility?
« on: February 07, 2019, 01:55:06 PM »
Mexico IS there with the exception of all the buildings and houses. The only partially completed building is El Presidio. I have glitched off the map and there is so much potential for the possibility of future map expansions. Past the normal boundaries of the actual map there is land that seems to go on forever and there is way too much there to be just for "distance visuals". North of the Grizzlies is the area that they say is "Canada". If you meet up with Eagle Flies' Father in Annesburg with John of course....he tells John that the remaining members of the Indian tribe have gone to Canada. And I think, if I remember correctly, Charles says that's where he is going, too. The supposed "Canada" area is beautiful and looks very different than the Grizzlies snowy areas. Most of it looks like finished graphics...there are mountains, trees and weather conditions like a blizzard. It's incredible!

I've gone to Guarma and if you explore off to the East of that map there is land that also goes on forever. Most of that is very unfinished but there are patches of beautiful mountains and grasslands, trees and other vegetation.  What is that map going to be? Again, there's way too much there to be just visuals for Guarma.

I was really disappointed that Sadie did not have a very large part in the main story. It would be great if they did some sort of DLC with her doing more bounties or something. A DLC with Landon Ricketts would be awesome, as Papa said! They could include that somehow in a Mexico DLC along with maybe Javier being that that's where John met up with them in the first game.

So many ideas and so many possibilities!  They have to be planning on expanding the map or is it there for a possible RDR3?  I mean, didn't they say that they were planning RDR2 during the making of the first game? It's not really that far-fetched of a speculation. I just really hope they don't do a Undead Nightmare 2....zombies are sooooo overdone.  I hear people are talking about time travel?  Now that would be something different!

I sort of have the feeling that they're preparing a version of RDR2 for the next gen of consoles, sort of like they did with GTA5.

That's what I'm afraid of because I can't afford a new console. They are coming out with new consoles way too fast!

I'm too cheap to spend the $200 and I never have more than 4 people anyway. I just join other friends who have persistent posses.

Can't wait to level up enough to get that fast travel option for my camp!
