Red Dead Online / What are you going to do first?
« on: November 26, 2018, 05:12:12 PM »
I believe there is an introduction of some sort, but after that is done I think I might go hunting. Maybe even try and find one of these enemy camps.

Red Dead Online / What kind of character will you make?
« on: November 26, 2018, 04:58:44 PM »
As the title says, what kind of character are you going to play online?

What kind of physical traits will they have? What kind of person will they be?

I am going to try and make my character look as much like me as possible, but with a much more rugged beard.

So for most of the game you don't seem to really venture out much into the parts of the map from the original RDR. It does lead to the questions why they would of gone through so much effort to put it in if its really unused.

Granted I love seeing McFarlane's Ranch, Armadillo and Tumbleweed all before the events of RDR. As it makes sense that you don't venture out there because in the early game we know the gang didn't seem to have ever travelled out to some of these places. But could this be leading to a thought that these areas might be more well used in a DLC expansion?

Would you like to see these parts used more in an expansion, or maybe even in Red Dead Online?

Events / Red Dead Online League - Expressions of interest
« on: October 14, 2018, 12:08:51 AM »

Howdy cowboys and cowgirls,

When Red Dead Redemption was released all those years ago, the online multiplayer had a huge base of dedicated fans who loved to test themselves against the best there was. This bought about several amateur competitive leagues. With Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online, the opportunity for competitive tournaments are endless.

As well as relaxed games with friends (or enemies), we are also looking at working with great content creators throughout all streaming platforms (Twitch, Mixer, Facebook Gaming and Youtube) to create a worldwide competitive league. We would love to be able to broadcast some of these matches LIVE on the various streaming platforms. Streaming is such a more accessible option for many gamers now, as built in apps on the PS4 (Twitch) or hardware on the Xbox One (Mixer) means if you have a console, YOU CAN BROADCAST!.

If you are interested in taking part in some of the BEST Red Dead Online events and tournaments, post your details below so we can start to make some arrangements. I know not a lot of details behind Red Dead Online has been released yet but that shouldn't be far away. For now you can assume similar match types to those found in RDR as well as GTA Online. Once we have confirmation of match types we can get some things arranged.

Simply fill out the info below

Console you are playing on (Xbox One or PS4):
Match types or events you would be interested in (Free for all, Team deathmatch, "Grab the bag", etc):
Team based or solo based:
Are you a streamer and looking at streaming matches? If so, which Platform and Handle:

Red Dead Redemption 2 / "None of us are ready for October 26th"
« on: October 10, 2018, 11:30:23 PM »

Alanah Pearce is a host for Rooster Teeth and got to play some Red Dead Redemption 2. After going in with high expectations she reports that she as still blown away.

This pleases me, and everything I am hearing about this game sounds amazing.

Gaming / E3 2018
« on: June 09, 2018, 12:21:54 PM »
So E3 2018 is set to kick off in just a couple of hours with EA's press conference.

What is everyone hoping to see this year?

Personally I am very keen to see more about Vault 76, as well as hoping for a new Elder scrolls that is MP but not an MMO like Elder Scrolls online. Not sure how likely that is though.

Also excited to see if Sony announce anything new as we kinda know most of their current lineup of games for the next 12-18 months.

Want to see more of Anthem, Skull and Bones, Last of Us Part 2, The Division 2, Crackdown 3, Days Gone and Splinter Cell.

Of course, always interested to see if there is anything said about RDR2 but I am not expecting much to be perfectly honest.

Hi guys,

Just a quick update. I've gone ahead and created a Mixer streaming account for Red Dead Forums. I plan on using it down the line for some of the events and tournaments I want to run both for when RDR2 drops, as well as in the lead up to it if there is any interest for people playing the original Redemption.
I also am gonna try and host other streamers who are playing the game when we don't have other events planned.

If you could go ahead and give it a follow so we can start to get a fanbase of those interested in these types of events I would be grateful.

I am still trying to work out the best way of doing it but have a few ideas I am gonna play around with over the coming weeks/months.

As always if you have any ideas or expressions of interest in playing some online events let me know.

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Regular tournaments for RDR2
« on: February 27, 2018, 09:38:21 AM »
Hey guys,

How would you guys feel if we ran regular tournaments/events for RDR2? As some of you know I have also recently been exploring streaming and have really fallen in love with the streaming community, particularly on Mixer. Part of my idea would be to have some events streamed via peoples Xbox's or Playstation consoles. Specific details will have to be worked out once we know more info on RDR2.

What I want to ask is how would you guys feel if we used a third party site like to help organise the tournament brackets etc? For instance, if you to go and sign up to my "test" tournament you will see how it works. Could be a useful tool if we can ever run large scale tournaments. With the popularity of eSports booming I think there is a great opportunity for those who want to hone their skills in the new game.

Hi guys,

We had recently been having some issues with Tapatalk, the mobile app for forums. These issues have seem to now be resolved and the site should be able to be found and accessed on a mobile device with no issues. If you continue to have issues please reach out to us in this thread.

Additionally, if you are using Tapatalk at all, let us know how you find it. Always interested to hear feedback from you guys.

Official News / Release date announced! October 26th 2018!

Dear All,
We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.
We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.
With thanks,

Gaming / Escape from Tarkov
« on: January 14, 2018, 06:03:47 PM »
So lately I've been looking at this new game. Its currently due for release later this year but I've been able to play it during its closed beta stage going on.

Its a kind of survival game with aspects of Arma and DayZ. You build you character, go on a raid to loot places and people you kill. If you die, you lose all your stuff but if you can extract with it you get to keep it all for future raids.

The biggest thing is that its super difficult and hyper realistic. A few shots is enough to kill, with potential to bleed out over time if you don't bandage. You can get broken bones and have to splint them, or drink water to avoid dehydration. You can break weapons down and change them up right down to a modular level. Just everything about this game is trying to make you feel like you could die at any moment. Even when you shoot a weapon the gas escaping causes a bit of a blur effect down the sights.

Check out some videos of it if you can.

The biggest issue at the moment is that matchmaking and getting into a map takes an excruciatingly long time. Until they add more servers this will be the case but they recently did a stress test so that is obviously a work in progress.

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Idea for multiplayer
« on: September 23, 2017, 06:39:16 AM »
Okay, so I'm gonna copypasta from a post I made at GTAForums.

One thing that I would love to see implemented in RDR2 multiplayer is the ability for a host to go into spectator mode. Something along the lines of what PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS does with their custom servers. (look it up if you aren't familiar). It would be a great way to broadcast tournaments and events which was a big part of the original title, although coverage was limited because of the lack of capture cards amongst the general public. Now with streaming services becoming more and more accessible (see Twitch apps, and Mixer built into the Xbox One consoles, etc) it would be great to run tournaments where we could kind of have some spectator mode for those who are not playing the game. The potential for this to be shoutcasted could also be explored.
If you look at what Rockstar have been doing over the last few years with having live streams advertised via their social media with celebrities and the likes, it would be awesome to really explore this to its full potential.
What do you guys think?

Announcements / Explanation of the recent downtime
« on: September 07, 2017, 09:09:42 AM »
So you may have noticed that the site had been down for most of the last couple of days. I feel that I should enlighten you as to the cause behind it and any effects that may be felt from it.

So firstly the cause seems to be that a couple of the tables got corrupted and would not repair. You may have noticed this in the error message that appears that "smf_settings is invalid file type". There was also another table which only contains the active sessions and therefore was not all that important to keep as the worst case scenario is that you may need to re-login to the site. After going back and forth with the host they were also unable to fix the issue and so asked if I could restore from a backup. Now seeing as doing a full restore would of taken us back a bit in terms of messages etc. So instead I chose to choose an older backup, but only importing the table I needed.

As the settings don't often change there shouldn't be too many issues, but if you come across any errors, or features that appear to be bugged or missing entirely please let me know as some of them may have relied on changes to settings which occurred after this backup was taken.

Sorry for the downtime and thanks to those who sent messages to us on Facebook etc to let us know there were issues. Thanks for you patience.

Hey guys,

So now with the whole Mixer streaming thing that I've been playing with I have an idea. Would anyone be interested in playing a bit of RDR this weekend and just find a private lobby that isn't tainted and roaming around the Wild West whilst I stream it?

These are the session times we are planning. Obviously feel free to arrange your own sessions outside of these, but these will the be times I am trying to stream as much during (provided there are others playing).

Probably about time this got its own topic seeing as a couple of us are playing again.

I've started getting back into the swing of things after having to restart. Not sure what happened to my previous progress but I can't remember if I was that far in so its no biggie. Just hired my second driver so now I can start repaying the loan I took out to buy my own truck/upgrade my garage.

I've also been switching back and forth between my PC gamepad, my old Playstation 2/USB steering wheel (which I had never used before) and my Xbox One controller. I think I'm going to stick with my Xbox One controller though, only because I have the chat gamepad attached so I can use all the keyboard commands as well instead of being limited to the 12 or so buttons on the gamepad. It was also a pain having to change each button when I switched from controller to controller.
