  1. I guess I didn't realize a corpse will still show up as an X even if you didn't kill them.
  2. What are you currently spending your free time playing?
  3. I still want to try your Smoked Jack Burgers. Will make them one day.
  4. SPEAKING of which, why doesn't Arthur or John EVER "cop a squat" anywhere?? It could be a cut-scene where they disappear behind a bush or into an outhouse, but not having necessary "evacuation" moments is rather dumb.
  5. It would be a lot more handy if we got a pop-up notification saying, "You are now hungry," or "You are now exhausted," kind of like "You are now cold." That would help quite a bit to know when he should eat, drink, sleep, etc.
  6. I did find it. Thanks! Have you finished yet?
  7. Tell you what. If I sell the screenplay, I'll fly you and a few old buddies from the old F13 forum days to Ft. Worth for a massive barbecue party in my backyard. Best I can do. 😁 Agreed. Fruit wood does give a good dynamic to pork. But oak works quite well, too.
  8. Here's what you do: Sign up for email notifications for the word "Smoker" under "Free Stuff" on Craigslist. Start watching episodes of BBQ with Franklin on YouTube. By the time you've watched the whole (very interesting but not very many episodes) series, you'll have found a decent quality FREE second-hand offset smoker. Fire it up and use your new skills. P.S., if you live in an apartment and have nowhere for a smoker pit, consider begging your parents for a small patch of real estate in their backyard where you can keep it, and sweeten the deal by offering delicious barbecue meals (if they buy the meat). Enjoy. (P.S.S. - always use Oak. ONLY Oak.)
  9. To me, "barbecue" IS smoked. It's a noun, not a verb. Anything else using non-smoke direct or indirect heat is either "grilling" or "roasting". I always HAAAAATE it when people say, "Come over for barbecue!" Then they start grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. Pffttt. Liars. THIS is "barbecue".
  10. Totally (and respectfully) disagree. By comparison, the amount of effort needed to make this happen is infinitesimal compared to what they had to do to build RDR2. And that game's so hot right now - and SOOOOO many RDR2 players have never played the rest of John's story (or even know it!) - based on the needed time invested to make it happen vs. the enormous interest, they're guaranteed to make quite a lot more on it than they did on Undead Nightmare. Certainly it wouldn't come close to RDR2 sales, but it would be a grand moneymaker. Of this, I'm ridiculously confident. ALL the tools already exist. It would be silly not to.
  11. I make apple pie with Alton Brown's recipe -- using 80 proof Applejack in both the crust and the pie itself. Keep a bottle in the back of the fridge for just such an occasion. Barbecue.
  12. And as I said - already having the updated map, along with the motion captures and voice overs from the previous game - SHOULD make this a snap. --well, a "snap" compared to the enormous endeavor they undertook to complete RDR2, that is.
  13. Let's talk about this. We appear to be talking about different things. You're talking about a port of a game from a previous generation to another. What I'm talking about is them using the very SAME map from RDR2, then add the motion captures and the voice overs from the original RDR to the RDR2 engine. The only thing they'd really have to do is re-create the specific characters from RDR that Marston interacts with, and perhaps make a few tweaks to the towns to update them to the 1911 timeline. But I agree with you - attempting a PORT of the original RDR to the current console generation would be a calamity. But again, since they have the entire map updated and recreated, there'd be no need to port it. Let us not forget the epic round-the-clock scramble the poor folks at R* went through to hit their release deadline of RDR2. Had they finished early and had extra time, I'm sure that conversation (release an updated RDR with the new map before releasing RDR2) would have taken place. But up until zero hour before release, they were 100%+ swamped. There would have been no time for such a thing. That's why I think now is the right time to think about it.
  14. That's goofy. Why do you have to escape first?? And what's the benefit of turning one's self in later? (and what happens?) Can you do it in a town where you're wanted "Dead or Alive"?
  15. I probably should have clarified: they really SHOULD release it as a DLC (paid or unpaid), and if it does well, release it on disc - like they did with Undead Nightmare. Yeah, I really have to watch it riding around town. It's way too easy to accidentally knock someone over on your horse. Then instantly, you're wanted and they the law comes along and tries to kill you. (Why don't you ever get arrested, like in GTA? It's like the smallest crime is instantly a law shootout death sentence!)
  16. So - I feel like: Since R* already has the complete map made for the current generation of consoles Since R* already has all the voice overs from the previous game Since people are completely in love with RDR2 and want more --it's a no-brainer to re-build the original Red Dead Redemption using the RDR2 map. I mentioned above they even have all the voice overs recorded and ready to go, and they already have a full, updated map ready to go. Wouldn't it be relatively easy (and make Rockstar lots of cashola) to make it happen?? I'D buy it again . . .
  17. This topic blossoming back to life once again simply reminds me of how very long it's been since I've smoked a 15 lb brisket. 😔
  18. For those who just want to see the screenshot, here it is: Thanks, @LastUnicorn!
  19. So, I kept trying to haggle the price down for that map, and the guy basically said "Pi$$ on you" and rode off. I tried yelling at him to stop and even tried capping him, but I missed. So now, I fear that map is long gone.
  20. I get very little time to play weekly, so I'm STILL on my first play-through of the story mode. I'm already . . . But I'm constantly stuck at around $1500 - $2000. I HAVE HEARD there are certain (non-glitched) places where $10,000 or more is stashed. True?? I've tried robbing places and banks on my own, and the most I've come up with is a couple hundred. Knowing Rockstar, there's got to be at least a FEW places where you can find $5,000 or more stashed somewhere. I tried looking up threads here, but didn't find any big discoveries that yielded more than a grand or so. Any secrets you know about? Danke, - Skunk
  21. They should do a "porcelain mask" that has vent holes and allows you to add designs to it. Would also be nice if we had the option for the eyes to be blacked out-- or not (a la Part 3).
  22. Well, THAT won't happen. But if they create a mask that LOOKS like a hockey mask -- and make it CUSTOMIZABLE to where WE can make it look like THE mask if we so wish -- then there's no legal ramification, and boom - you've got Jason haunting the woods and swamps of Lemoyne. . . . only problem is, the more death you wreak, the more "the law" is gonna come after you. Something tells me a Jason-esque Arthur Morgan can't take a bullet the way Jason could. 😒
