  1. Yes I too have been having the same problems in setting up camp, and with Cripps packing up camps before I have hardly used them. I have ticketed Rockstar about this many times and have been told they re aware and working on it -and thanks for my patience and understanding. Many other problems too. Today I completed a Trader Delivery and not only received no reward but lost the entire hard-won consignment. Items collected for Daily Challenges often do not count. And my finding of the Blood Flower failed to complete the Collection. Posse members are not able to access either my Hunting Waggon or its Cargo - despite setting Posse access in the menu. My Daily Streaks, including one of 95 Days, are continually being deleted. And I was unable to invite anybody into my Posse. The update is generally excellent but these 'teething problems' are frustrating in the extreme.
  2. Hi Buddy, sorry about the delay in replying. Rockstar awarded me the insultingly inadequate compensation of 5 gold bars for deleting my Streak of 95. Having started again from scratch I got back to 14 only to find this too was deleted! I have had a lot of communication with Rockstar about this and my ticket is still open but I don't think I'll get my Streaks back. And now too many Daily challenge achievements are not getting counted in; too many Bounty Missions go unrewarded, and too many collectibles found do not appear as found! Until it is sorted I am going to do only the simplest Daily Challenges, like a haircut, and concentrate on other ways of gaining XP and gold. Thanks for the reply.Kratos635wild.
  3. Partners: Can any one tell me how to share a screenshot with Rockstar - please. I am unfamiliar with most IT tech stuff., due to the stupidity of old age! I think I have taken the required screenshot but don't know how to end it to Rockstar. Since the update my 94 day Streak has been deleted and I have been put back to the start. I ticketed Rockstar and the answer requires me to share a screenshot of my current Daily Challenge streak page. Also I wonder whether others have experienced the same Streak deletion. I also did a minor character appearance change - could this have caused the problem? All replies much appreciated.

  5. Ac ollow up: since you like horse so much and have great knowledge of them perhaps you can advise me on the 'best' horse - 1/ for speed and race winning, and 2/ for strong nerve in conflict and stressful situations, and 3/ for general missions combining all these qualities. I do like my Missouri Foxtrotter and have own a couple of St Denis point-to-points on him. Seems as least as fast as my White Arabian. Cheers Buddy
  6. Many thanks LordLoff for your helpful response. I actually feel less bad now that I know I didn't mess up a chance to recover some of my investment - but Rockstar should at least remove the apparent SELL OPTION so people don't feel so stupid and/or cheated. Is it really worth buying the Horse Insurance - since I usually get my Grief Stricken horse back anyway eventually? Thanks Buddy
  7. Thanks again Foxtrot. Yes I am playing the online multiplayer. And yes I had no problem selling horses in Story Mode. An apology: I do seem able to make Special Snake Oil now - but not standard. I lost interest in chapter 6 of Story Mode once I started on the online version. But I will return to see the chapter out - and probably play again now that I have acquired some rudimentary skills. Cheers. A
  8. Many thanks Foxtrot for your helpful response. I find I still cannot use my Indian Tobacco to make anything! Neither strength of snake Oil. It just isn't coming up as an option in Crafting anymore. I did try to sell my spare horse in the stable - not the active one. I watched a You Tube video of someone trying to demonstrate how to sell a horse and saddle and the person made the same mistake as did I (whatever mistake that was) and only discarded both his horse and saddle when he thought he was selling. That video is still on You Tube. An aside, I am delighted with the Missouri Foxtrotter I bought to replace the discarded Arabian. Not sure how to make room in the stable for a third horse - I see the Collector role has a couple of pack horses available. Thanks again friend Pebbledash
  9. Howdy Partners, Again I am confused and in need of guidance. I tried to sell my horse and saddle at Valentine stable but seemed only to have DISCARDED both for zilch recompense! I only tried to sell because I couldn't buy a new horse (Missouri Foxtrotter) without making room in the stable. So, is it possible to sell? And how do I make room for another horse without selling? And, am I only allowed 2 horses? Another query:it seems I cannot longer make Standard Snake Oil with Indian Tobacco. Is this because I have the recipe for special Snake Oil? All replies will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  10. Further to my thanks earlier today. I find I can in fact acquire these cards (and others that were hitherto a mystery to me) and have done so, and I believe they are working just as you advised. This is a breakthrough for me in the game that will give me even more pleasure in it than before. Many thanks to all the members who took the time to share their knowledge with me.
  11. Many thanks for this advice Buddy. I believe my weight is showing as 'average' but perhaps I will see the results of being underweight. I will obtain the recommended Ability Cards as soon as I can.
  12. This is exactly the kind of advice I was hoping for. Many thanks. Not sure whether I have enough rank yet (53) to activate these cards but will check and get them ASAP.
  13. Hello again Buddies All, I have stumbled my way to Rank 53 Adam recently experiencing very rapid Dead Eye Core and Bar drain. I am consuming yellow tonics as fast as I can make them! I haven't fully understood the Abilities Cards so would welcome advice on the optimum setting for survival without constantly having to reset these cards. I am a low hostility high honour player who tries to avoid conflict whenever possible.
  14. Can any of you boffins advise me on the possible reason/s why I have lost internet connection 7 or 8 times in the last couple of days - please. I have a PS4 Pro. My non-game internet provision does not appear to be affected. Is this a Rockstar problem or a Play Station problem? (Layman's language please!).

    Godless

    I have just watched the first episode of the Netflix western series, Godless. It's so much like RDR2, in its cinema photography, mood and music it had me scanning the foliage for herbs. There's an early train robbery, stealing from. a Leviticus Cornwall clone, complete with Duster-coated guards, which robbery is then hijacked by a discontented ex-gang member reminiscent of Dutch's usurping of the O'Driscoll's similar escapades . . . and many other similarities. The film so far though is more brutal than the game. For RDR2 gamers I also recommend the Coen Bros, 'Ballad of Buster Scruggs' with similar stunning western backdrops and powerful stories in a series of short vignettes or chapters. 'The Meal Ticket' and 'The woman who got rattled' are especially poignant.
  16. Friend I am so grateful for the time and effort you have put into this comprehensive response to my questions. I have already made some early mistakes, such as buying all the lures, but I have not spent money on cosmetics, only what I thought was practical. I don't even have any winter clothes yet - they are so expensive in the early game. I did get some worms but I've never had much luck fishing. Never caught a single legendary fish offline, but a big Gar that I had to ditch for some reason. I lost a lot of good pelts by being killed - I suppose there's the same risk online? I think I read somewhere that all horse cargo such as pelts are lost in Fast Travel In an excellent You Tube video (100 Tips for Beginners) the chap recommended taking a wagon on hunting trips to load up with carcasses. I must try that - but I imagine it would be impractical up some of these steep winding paths! Off line I did hunt up in the West Grizzlies but, illogically, the game insisted my animal carcasses were spoiling in sub-zero temperatures. I didn't know about gaining strength or levelling up by fishing either. I have got to Chapter 6 of the single player story mode without realising I could sell herbs to doctors! But then in the offline game I have 1000s of dollars and gold with nothing to spend them on. I have never thought of selling meat to butchers either! Useful tips indeed for the online game. I did get the 25 GBs special offer. What does "imo" mean? I really am a newbie! There's so much good stuff in your response I can't wait to get to it later today. Many thanks.
  17. Yes thanks again for the advice. I am in fact very familiar with the marshes NE of St Denis from the single player story mode. Plundered it for orchids, vanilla, snapping turtles, all manner of wading bird but never really bothered with the 'gators. Caught a huge gar fish there too. Your secret's safe with me!
  18. Thanks for the offer Buddy. I too am retired and would be pleased to join you when you are fit again - soon I hope. I bought a headset today but have been too busy (snooker night Thursday) to use it. Lots of questions. Here's another. The emoticons or whatever they are seem very cumbersome to work.In the story mode I could exchange cheery 'Hi Pardner' in an instant but if I've got it right the online equivalent takes so long the passing chap has well passed. Maybe there's a short cut. Yes I'm on PS4 Pro.
  19. Once again many thanks to a member for helpful advice. I learned a lot doing RDR Story mode and now I am embarked on another steep learning curve. What for most of you guys is 'common sense' is strange and new to me. That reminds me of a line from a Robert W Service poem (The men who don't fit in) Something like, ... For they are strong and brave and true. ... But they years for the strange and new." Like 'Dangerous Dan McGrew" - 'hairy chested poetry. I'm rambling. Thanks Buddy
  20. Thanks for the headsup Buddy. I went to the marshes today and found that I could only carry 2 Heron carcasses on my horse. Didn't get any 'gator skins but will do so tomorrow. There was no indication that the 'gators are being overheated - there's one every few yards.
  21. Thanks for this Buddy. I will try to find out tomorrow how to do this, I mean the mechanism. When I am in game is there a list of available posses? Is that how it works? Also, how can posse members give me information? Does this require me to have a mic and headset communicate. I'll get one if that's how it's done.
  22. Many thanks Buddy.I wasn't holding down L2. I will put this into practice and let you know how I get on.
  23. How do I keep and animal on my lasso? I cannot seem to stop an animal or person from escaping before I can hogtie them.
  24. Further to my last, how do I find a decent posse? And once in a posse how do I return to it after logging out? I am ignorant of lots of stuff that you veterans take for granted as common knowledge.
