  1. Griefer hunting or looking for trouble? Taking a mission to deliver a wagon, starting in Blackwater which was a rolling gun battle. And take it to Thieves Landing, which was also a rolling gun battle did not look to have much chance of success. Unless the plan was to get into some pvp all along. The previous days before I mysteriously was not in your posse, the posse was not showing in the posse list at all and you appeared "offline" for 6-7 days it seemed either you were making poor decisions or looking to find trouble and start a war. Not into pvp all that much myself, after a few kills/deaths I've had my fill and am ready to get back to what I had planned on doing. I took a 5 month break until the offense/defense mode patch came out because players were going out of their way to kill others. Or at least it looked that way from where I was standing. I don't know if the patch really changed things that much or players attitude changed, but it is very easy to avoid player vs player conflicts now if you just use a little smarts. In the last week as a posseless player I have killed 1 player who was acting strange and looked to be hunting me and I have been killed twice. 5 seconds later I was back to minding my own business and no server war erupted. I get mauled and killed by grizzlies 100 times more than by players. I think trying to run all the grizzlies off the server would be about as pointless as trying to run some random player off the server because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe the players you and your posse seem to be having trouble with are the griefer hunters and you are the griefers. Being chased across different sessions as described by some of your posse members seems much more than a random killing.
  2. Cowboy action shooting. KC's Corral annual club championship entitled Thunder in the Brush, which was just last month. About 50 people total, 3 posses over a 2 day period. Top picture is my posse and that is me shooting pistols gunfighter category. The Lady in the purple shirt is picking up my rifle casings and shotgun hulls. She was Virginia State Lady's Champion couple years ago, very fast shooter (I can't beat her). She also tutored me in black powder reloading. Her alias is Sassy Shooting Sours, guess where I got my characters last name from. That is her husband behind me holding the timer in his hand. Have got the SASS Virginia State Black Powder Shootout coming up in a couple of weeks. Will try to get more pictures. Most everyone will have the best cowpoke looking outfit they have on.
  3. Thanks @Major Dammidge for the graphic. Today was a fun one. Need to get my guns re-barreled though, wore them out with all the shooting.
  4. Did not really buy them for the xbox, but they came wired for the xbox and with an adapter to hook to pc. But the wires going to the mic were backwards to be able to work with with an xbox. Don't think the warranty is any good now, not that I would have tried to use it anyway. At least I did not have to get my favorite mechanics tool out and beat it into submission, I just love using a big ballpeen hammer to fix things.
  5. An arena type server that only has town sized maps, with all the towns on a rotation. Drop the teams in opposite corners (2-4 teams) and let them go at it. Could either be wipe out the other team or capture and hold certain points till time runs out. Just a thought.
  6. The free-aim lobby people are the only ones I can see that still have a valid complaint. I am happy with the passive/aggressive mode the way it is working at the moment. Will have to see what abuses players can come up with, so far I have not see any creative players doing so.
  7. I think my xbox does not like my headphones/mic. Works fine in windows, but nothing when in RDO. Going to have to pickup a different set and see if that works. So this means I am not ignoring you all. Could learn morse code, my clicks do show up. Edit: It might be fixed, will find out tomorrow.
  8. Not exactly the same experience, but felt the same way and stopped playing online about a week before Xmas. Came back after the passive/offensive mode patch and find I can actually enjoy the game. A couple of time someone has walked up to me with a pair of sawed of shotguns and shot my face off. And I do see bullets whizzing by every so often, which is not a big deal. Now I can walk into a town where a posse is killing all the NPC's and go about my business for the most part. A big change from when RDO first came out.
  9. My xbox update this morning was around 1.27gb
  10. Not sure if my mic is working, was in a posse earlier and just heard static when some one spoke. Never had headphones and mic hooked up till this morning. Might have some bugs to work out.
  11. Sometimes the hunting missions are slow to kick in. I wait a few minutes before doing anything else to see if they start. Missions are not 100%, but are for me anyway working most of the time. I spend most of my time in high country doing Adler missions and ones from the Mexican.
  12. Did to me this morning, went back to normal after relogging.
  13. Have not joined one single posse in RDO. Spent my time hunting, fishing and stranger missions. The Blue Hare Crew looks to be a group I could easily fit into. So yes, I'm interested in joining. Also retired, east coast US and have been playing everyday since the spring update. Just hit lvl 30. Hope to see you ingame soon.
  14. In the lawless west as the population moved onto new territory ahead of civilized law some people stepped up and took care of the bad guys. Those people were prime candidates to become Sheriffs, Marshals and Judges. That is how it worked in the old west. RDO is the equivalent of the lawless west. Yes there is NPC Law, but it is very weak. Players that take on grievers, pelt/carcass thieves, horse thieves and all the other uncivilized players recreate the way it was and become the Law.
  15. I remember reading about a romance between Arthur and Sadie Adler that was cut. About 80gb worth, sounds like a possible DLC.
  16. They seem to be working today for the most part. You might have to wait a bit after opening dialog or open and close the dialog and walk away a few feet and then go back. Is still not 100% even if you do accept. Have done several today and a few of the random ones you find just riding around. Did one where the door would not open yesterday, but walked right in to day. And another where the NPC was not there, but was there today. Thinking there were 2 yesterday the door would not open, but no problem today. Memory is a bit foggy on that tho. Did have one yesterday where when I got off the horse it vanished like someone else did. Also could not call the horse until I walked away from the location. Oh ya, been back online for 5 days and it is much improved, much improved.
  17. Tried that and it did open the mission dialog, but the mission did not start.
  18. I have returned to RDO because of the changes made with last weeks update. Have not been online since right before Xmas. Had to refresh my memory on how the basics worked, have not even played offline in a few months. Looks promising so far, been to town and moseyed around. Sold some stuff at the butcher and the fence without incident. One red player knocked me down, but I just ignored them and went about my business. A story mission and ride to Blackwater are the next things I will check out.
  19. Ya, looked like a good round of " Registrations are temporarily disabled" could have done some good earlier today.
  20. From what I understand RDO is player hosted. That would help explain a lot of the glitches, the 24 player limit and connection problems.
  21. Not much of an update, IMO. Have not been online for a month and don't miss it. At this point in time it does not look like the online version is anything I'll be interested in.
