Steam Launch Megathread (Bugs, performance issues, first impressions etc)

Recommended Posts

IzzyBlues93

Figured I'd make a new thread here for first time players to discuss the launch of the game on Steam, and any issues that are pertinent to the Steam version of the game.

 

Currently decrypting at the moment, will post back here with any issues that may be prevalent.

 

Also, a big shoutout to the people who bought the game on the RGL and were able to beta test the game for us to iron out the launch issues.

 

Some quick, useful info for first time players setting up;

 

Here are Hardware Unboxed PC optimization settings for the best balance between performance and visuals.

If you don't want to watch the video, HUB also makes an important statement that running the game in Fullscreen rather than Borderless Windowed mode helps performance. Be sure to update to your latest graphics drivers as they fix a multitude of stuttering and performance issues.

 

Installing the game on a SSD helps on the initial load screen and *may* help with any stuttering issues but that is not confirmed, this information is only word of mouth, otherwise, installing the game on a HDD will do just fine.


Also, if you are a Twitch Prime member, you can link your Rockstar Social Club account for some added benefits in Red Dead Online.

Fingers crossed for a smooth launch. Unpacking time is all over the place - looks to be an hour.

My decryption ETA is fluctuating all over the place at the moment as well. Went from 1 hour to 30 minutes to 16 minutes in the span of about 10 minutes since starting the decryption lol.

Is there a way to remap controls on your controller?

 

I'm used to the PS4 version, and now that I'm using an Xbox controller, I don't like the fact that to change camera is to hit the back button. The buttons are inverted/reversed for me and it's throwing me off.

So that Tez2 guy lies I figured, because they would promote something like that for Steam oh well!! Guess I’m done with Red Dead 2!

Can anyone take screenshots via the Steam overlay? I've got the overlay active (can Shift - Tab to it), but when I press F12 it's not taking screenshots.

Anyone have a different experience?

 

Nevermind, it was an issue with my Steam client. It's fixed now.

This. 

 

And, also the video below helps. PS4 equivalent settings here.

Note: Water Reflection and Refraction is shown to be Low in this vid, which is a incorrect. Both should set to Medium as that's what PS4 is using.

Tip: If you can't hit consistent 60fps, just switch your refresh rate from 60Hz to 50Hz, this should still feel just as smooth as 60fps, with consistent frame-rate/time.

Use PS4 controller. The game has native DS4 support with DS4 icons.

Game runs fine for me, the stability is just unbelievably good. I'll stick with Hardware Unboxed settings for now, they seem to be the best so far.

Can somebody fully explain what would happen if person that owns on RGL bought game on Steam

1. Will it have preorder bonuses

2. special edition (if on steam is standard)

3. same online character

4. can it use same folder and files

5. can it be run separately or completely will break the RGL version?

My game REFUSES to launch if the PS4 controller is plugged in via wire. I can't seem to get my PS4 controller to pair with Windows via wireless, even after using DS4Windows.

I'm having the same issue. I've resorted to using a wireless PS4 using the Steam Controller Configuration but I really need those DS4 icons.

What's even more odd is that if I plug the PS4 controller in, Big Picture Mode recognizes the controller, and I can play the game with it, but Xbox controller icons show up and the gamepad is giving me the same issue where it's running in inverse controls.

 

I really, REALLY don't want to have to use the Xbox One Controller to play this game. It sh*ts me to tears.
