I don't support piracy, but when, on the other side of spectrum you have:

 

"Let's encourage customers to buy our game by releasing a buggy, finicky, rushed piece of garbage that requires online DRM a year later at full price!"

 

Then it's kinda hard to pick a side. Both sides are destructive.

The stupid thing is, there are other players who claim they can run the game in "offline mode" without issues. It's even stated in the patch notes that there is, and here, customer support claims we need a constant internet connection to play. They are contradicting themselves.

 

And what's even more frustrating, if this is indeed a bug, they are not willing to acknowledge it and believes everything is working as intended, leaving some people able to play offline and some who can't. Their whole DRM system is a joke.  One of the worst launchers I've ever experienced.

Either support is clueless or they're trying to get rid of me as I'm a bit persistent on the matter, anyway they didn't acknowledge it to be a bug as I've put forward to them.

 

Or they've decided to flip the switch and implement the persistent DRM, which is beyond me.

 

If you look at the RDR2 Steam page "Network: Broadband Internet connection" is listed under the system requirements, of course this can just be a requirement for downloading the game. Though it wasn't listed as a system requirement at Rockstar: https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/360037044893/Red-Dead-Redemption-2-PC-System-Requirements Neither was it listed as a system requirement on Epic Store, so we will see.

 

Anyway I'm done with the game for now, stressing over the DRM is just not worth my time, there are other games to play. Will check back with RDR2 in a few months time to see what state the DRM is in.

 

I will try to keep the thread up to date if they get back with me and the situation has change or if they retract what they said.

So, there was a new launcher patch that got released recently and offline mode seems to be working for me now. Here's what I had to do:

 

First, I had to re-log into the launcher (make sure to have "remember me" and "auto sign-in" ticked), then I launched the game and waited till I was in the main menu. I then disabled my internet connection and let the game transition into "offline mode". I then quit the game and relaunched it again to see if it'll work, and thankfully, it did. I even restarted the launcher (including my whole computer) and was surprised to find out that it still worked offline.

 

I'm not sure how long the offline mode will last (or when it might break again), but I'm glad that it's working properly now. Hopefully, it's working for the rest of you all as well.

Yep, currently working now, was the buggy launcher all along.

Nah the game still needs connection to start.

 

PD: I hope that someone launches a mod or something for this because it is very frustrating to have to depend on an internet connection to play a story mode.

Mods can only make the UI of Skyrim somewhat less atrocious--it's impossible to fix it completely with mods, and Gamebryo games are the most moddable AAA games that exist.

 

It pains me to say that, regarding real, significant problems with games, the whole "Mods Will Fix It" notion is grossly exaggerated. Now, if your problem is a lack of top hats for your mudcrabs or an excess of clothing for your women then you're pretty much good to go.

 

I'm basically certain that a mod can never do anything about DRM, but I'll keep my fingers crossed nonetheless.

And once they crack it nothing can be done either?

 

Sorry for my English..

I honestly don't know the details of cracking a game, but I would assume that cracking alone would take care of the issue of needing an online verification.

 

Also, your English is at least better than that of the average U.S. native.

I am also having this problem. I am sure its an installation issue, but it seems to me in 2020 with a game this age there ought to be a way to play sp without hassle. A cracked launcher at least. I paid 50 bux for this half assed game after waiting YEARS to buy it, a month later the rotten bastards dropped price to 25 bux. The game has 3 underdeveloped characters, 5 heists ffs, zero f*cking interiors, broken as f*ck over the top nazi cops, and all the same as ever broken game and control mechanics. If i had kept track of it, i know i have spent more time f*cking with and troubleshooting their broken over the top launcher than i have plaid this horribly underdeveloped overrated title with the character that steers like trying to drive a bus. Its as bad as the broken camera in like vice city. That and the constant chase cam management it makes it all but unplayable. I shouldn't have to drag my pc tower back to my sisters where is my only internet access point right now, to manage another 7 disc reinstall, and the 18 hours to redownload 18 more gigs that are already on my f*cking hdd just cause their flaky drm nazis out on me all the time. In fact id go as far as to say rockstar owes me part time wages for how much of my life I've wasted on rockstar error codes 1-150,000,000 trying to play a sp game I've more than f*cking paid for. Not since my big bro and i threw our atari and nes pads at the old vacuum tube have i been so p psychologically captive. Requirements might as well require periodic waterboarding while naked ffs.

They're DRM system might be a joke but is sure as hell good, no one has managed to crack it yet so far.

There's someone at CS.RIN.RU that managed to bypass the activation, problem is the game has infinite loading screen bug. so it's still impossible
