move game files to another pc

Recommended Posts

Pinocchio

Hi,

 

is there a way to move the game to another PC?

I'm not at home this weekend and I have a second PC where I want to do one of the daily tasks to keep my bonus.

The problem is that the internet bandwitdh there is horrible and my only chance is to bring the recent gamefiles with me... maybe on one of my 3 SSDs (I want to move one of them to my second pc anyways)

 

Sorry for my bad english. Is it possible to let the Rockstar games launcher think the game is there?

 

For example when i start the download of rdr2 on my second pc, stop it, and copy the game files into the folder?

Or just copy it and search for it by the games launcher?

 

Thank you!

Simple answer:
No. You can't do that with GTAV, neither with RDO, and you probably break the Rockstar ToS (Terms of service) which can give your Social club account a permanent ban.

 
You have to buy a second copy for that particular computer.

So stay at home if the daily tasks are so important...

thank you for the answer! seriously? Its not like with steam or blizzard app where I can have every game on multiple machines as long as i don't use it at the same time? wow that would put us backup to the 90s.. okay, ill take my main pc with me.... why should I lose my bonus for one day... I can do the daily task on Friday and again on Sunday...

...still cant believe this...🤨

 

so if i buy a new PC i have to call rockstar games for their games?

 

okay i looked it up its true.. never excepted to end up with this problem... so stupid... 

I'm at my second pc every second weekend so I hope there be another good game soon

The online daily mission? Well i have RDR2 on my main PC and on my laptop, and ofc you can play Online on both, your online profile is in "the could"
But its not possible to move the gamefiles, you have to redownload it on the new pc (This is freaking dumb, i talk to support and there is no way) with GTA you could forcevertify gamefiles from CMD but this is not possible with RDR2 (Yes i know, my calender says 2019 as well)

Remote desktop? Not perfect and I don't expect you can do much but you should be able to get one of the easy dailies done.

Hi.

 

I would have to set up a Wake On Lan and remote access. I'll take my pc with me this time and try your advice afterwards.

 

 

Thank you!

 

But I'm not too optimistic playing one of the most problematic games via rdp :) ... or team viewer or whatever..

by the way, is the steam version, although it uses the rockstar launcher, capable of game file transfer? Would be very weird if its not. Nevertheless I wont buy the game a second time
