Stranger missions online broken?

Recommended Posts

Pocket Fox

Tried one, it didn't start. Asked the same NPC again, got another one, it worked.

 

Just now, did convoy escort, after 10 seconds 'your posse abandoned the job'   uhh no I didn't. The AI dismount the wagons and start shooting me. I do a lil hunting and come back to a butcher.... he and every NPC is un-interactable.

 

Like wow, just wow R*

You went to the effort of nerfing hunting, even made it so you cant server hop to get items etc but this GAME BREAKING bug as well as HORSE BOND RESET still have not been addressed.

 

trash, total trash.

I don't think they're trying to discourage players from triggering Stranger Missions. That's stupid. Everything in the game is supposed to work smoothly without a problem. And try to be bug / glitch free as possible. We know that's not easy in a massive content game. I'm referring to how big the world is, interaction between players and AI, the coding. They get corrupted and don't work like it's supposed to.

 

Sometimes, I think they should've made Stranger Missions more like GTA Online Contact Missions. Because it wouldn't be Stranger Missions in Free Roam where it could stop working. There's lot of players around. Is there a limit to what the server can handle? I don't know. But it worked smoothly in Contact Missions. Like it'd take place in another (lobby?) with just the 1 to 7 players that are doing the Stranger / Contact Mission. But Rockstar wants to encourage player interaction to buckwack you and interfere... at least Stranger Missions CAN work in heavily populated Free Roam. But even I can't tell why the problems happen.

Probably because before he got the boot, The Benz taught R* to not care as much because shark cards will still sell regardless, lol.

 

So they look to repeat that process here.

for a full week missions have been fine, they all started, and ended, no workaround needed or nothing. it just worked! ALTHOUGH the missions wouldn't propperly end immediately. for example I could still carry the pelts with me after the missions has ended....timer would stop and the check appeared...no cutscene prompted though and I didn't drop the pelts....had me worried at first but you just had to trigger another npc to interact....visit a shop, post office etc, and then it would end and your stats get updated!

 

NOW though, AFTER the update stranger mission started to fail again. just didn't start.....INCONVENIENT

WHY....R* why can't you have this fixed and STABLE? and have it STAY that way?!

Ever programmed a sourcecode

sick and tired of those who thinks it f...cking easy to program some

let alone a complex game with al its models 

 

I’m in the it, trust me it is killing

then....people who think they know it all please dont make me laugh again

 

but

patching a live enviroment..yeah something wrong can happen

 

Last week, finished one of my projects...and they are not satisfied

boy custommers,....I really could kill them

 

 

make me a calculator

and you will see for yourself how hard programming can be

 

i really dont think they let us out in the cold...besides this is just another moneymaking machine you seem to forget there are actually real people who are behind all this and!!! Last but not least...real passionned about there piece of work

 

ever met a programmer in real life

take it from the first hand

a program never runs the same course...never

 

 

Plus

its a Beta

they can do whatever they want

its just another sandbox for them as it is for us to play

Homie nobody cares how hard it is. Cry me a river. Not a single person goes out to dinner, has their meal come messed up and/or late and says "yeah but the Chef has it hard"

 

It's actually THEIR BUSINESS to produce a functional environment.

 

Go be angry elsewhere don't get all pissy at people who have a LEGITIMATE reason to be annoyed...

Its hilarious how you dont see the difference between a chef and a programmer....well....let me tell you this....."homie" I was both of them....

I can cook you a seven course diner, with my eyes closed....yet I cant make a keylogger with my eyes closed. Dude....I dare to bet, you cant even remember a simple command

i found that out while trying to trigger one mission in (i think) valentine it was a mail delivery mission (i failed), and a mission in tumbleweed (it took 3 - 4 tries) but i finally got that one to trigger (it was a cart recovery mission that i failed because a griefer killed me and blew up the cart).

and also the horse bonding is still broken as well.

^yeah the missions are f*cked again. basically a no-go area until another "update" drops or they do some shadow fixing (silent patching without notice) 

it was reallyfine for a week, BEFORE the update. I made more than 10 goldbars doing my "grind" in that time, I consider that efficient for my standards. now with this glitch mess that is stranger missions: them not starting, OR EVEN WORSE, starting and NOT PAYING in the end...it's like I don't even want to try

 

mission accomplished, R*

way too long, I read it all though. and what can I say.....okay?!

I work with sick people so I'm far from coding, just sayin.

 

off the point though, since R* is in the business for what? almost 20 years? I'm talking GTA 3 and onwards...when they started to go BIG! (are they ready to go home by now?)

tell me, what happened here? How are they no longer able to fix glitches? there are many well-known bugs, since day1. ....

 

game being "beta", yeah, well, doesn't a beta get bug-fixes nevertheless? and isn't the community a very important factor to listen to when it comes to evolving said beta into a direction where BOTH the company AND the customers are happy in the end?

 

you basically say...."it is tough doing what they do"....no sh*t?! but it's R*, a developer with reputation, known for pushing boundries etc...now they can't even fix bugs?

argue away friend....I just don't see a common ground here. I am astonished/mad/disappointed  at their "sudden" incapability to be a good game developer....you seem to think they're the most talented guys ever (IT guys in general, I guess), so yeah give' em a break and let them do what they do -  even though their sh*t just breaks with every update -> which is just overpriced content dripfeed and stealth nerf packages most of the time anyway!

Wether it’s hard or not to code a game it shouldn’t be in the state it’s in, if it’s not right it shouldn’t have been release. Plus they have had plenty time to fix it but haven’t Oh yes they can soon enough bang out some new code for pvp matchmaking like this previous Monday’s update or if gold had an issue that would be sorted quickly as was the Couger glitch, It’s down to what they prioritise what gets done and what doesn’t and by the looks of things since release to today player relations don’t come close

^true dat

 

just started a mission, which flat out worked. still running down the timer. the weird thing about it though -  I'm in a lobby by myself?! just me in the players list. NEVER seen that. when I joined the lobby there were others...started the mission and there I am, all by myself. btw I'm @ wallace station. and also weird: in 20 minutes I've already seen 3 trains passing by....oh wait, there goes the 4th. wtf?!

in 5 minutes I'll tell you whether I got paid or not once the mission ended.

 

EDIT: okay I got paid, THANK GOD, and there was another train, it came by every 3 or 4 minutes. what was that about!?

ALSO, back in a lobby with others, so I was indeed isolated during the stranger mission. anyone seen this before? I certainly haven't

 

just glad the mission started, ended, and got me paid! GOOD JOB R*

last session was rather frustrating, when I got missions to start, which required several attempts, I stumbled upon "new" bugs during "on the hunt". for example after inspecting 3 clues the animal just wouldn't show....GREAT

or, another time the pelt lay on the ground after I had to fight and get it back from some dude who got that there earlier, but I couldn't pick it up since it glitched half into the ground or something...another GREAT

 

that, disconnects, and animals despawning gave me no choice but to turn the game off!

godf*ckindammit! the stranger missions are glitching/failing again and it grinds my gears.

 

"on the hunt" gave me a hard time again, after I finally got it started. "investigate the noise" it said at some point but no red dot showed on the map. AGAIN. hell no I did not spend another 30 minutes just picking some occasional feathers! I was out to hunt the cougar, at cholla springs, it was a foggy night, couldn't see sh*t. the only way I realized it was actually THERE, at one of its usual spots I guess, was when my aim started to shake and then I saw it almost standing in front of me. I think it didn't even try to attack me, just stood there looking at me.

 

COUGARS in general acted weird last session. they were staring at me, I SWEAR, they seemed to fail to attack. bear claw camp, at first sight they did attack, but when you approach again from another side, 1 minute later or so, they were not reacting much, if at all. just WEIRD. easy kills though

 

anyhow, the stranger missions, they're my bread and butter and it is so f*cking annoying that it's back to 50/50 chances on working. you pop some tonics, eat a fine piece of beef, clean your guns....just to have your session glitched and f*cked - and switch to another, where you start with empty cores and dirty guns.....WEAK!

Yea, they were really tying my asshairs in a knot yesterday when the daily challenge was complete 5.  My friend and I started in Tumbleweed and worked our way across the map and they all failed to start.  The first one that actually started was Shakey in Thieves Landing.

Not for me, at first it's been fine for me, for months, then just f*cked for a week or two, then fine again, until the latest update dropped.

Seems pretty random right now.  I'll do a On the Hunt mission which doesn't start.  I walk away for a bit, and come back.  A new mission pops up, and that one works.  Doesn't matter who it is either.

Define "fine". What I mean by "broke" is they rarely ever start on the first try, and that's been since day one.

The stranger missions are absolutely bugged, but my brother and I found out that if we are doing these missions together, he needs to stand next to me when we start the mission (I'm posseleader). If he stands on wrong side of a door or a couple of meters/yards away from me, they won't work at all. Either I can't get them to start, or they bug out after the intro. So we started standing right next to each-other and four times in a row the other night, stranger missions that didn't work while he was outside on his horse or similar, suddenly worked perfectly.

 

That said, playing alone also makes them not work sometimes, so maybe it was pure luck for the two of us and not a fix. But try it and see if it helps.

missions would always START for me, that's what I mean when I said they were "fine". And then a full week before the update they wouldn't start/trigger...what you experienced from day1 I guess. it was unplayable for me then and ONLY joining others through the PS RDO community would help. AFTER the update, a few days it was fine again....and then not

 

now it's red dead roulette. last session was a mixed bag again. on and off.

Im not sure but i have a lot more issues when in a posse whether its mine or one of my mates, On my own playing i dont have many issues with strangers just 2 really that post office emerald ranch and post office St Denis those 2 have a 50/50 chance of working the rest i do around valentine, van horn rhodes and annesburg seem to work 95% of the time>

 

Also off topic but also when in posse i have horse bonding issues and pelts showing on horse that shouldnt be there and not in inventory, Very rarely get these issues when on my own.
