  1. Only possible solution is buy an Xbox! You won't look back.
  2. Sorry to hear about that. Have to say, though, I'd never buy a Rockstar game on PC, they're famously weak on that side. It's why I'm on Xbox.
  3. Mine was fine again, then very dark last night. Struggled as it got dark during a bounty and couldn't see where I was, had to finish it using eagle eye!
  4. Not that anyone cared (or perhaps it was just me!) but after 36 hours with odd colours and very, very dark nights, the colour on mine just switched back to normal. Phew.
  5. Mine (on Xbox) is now so dark I can barely see at night, and the colours seem darker during the day, too, to the point that it's almost unplayable. I haven't changed any settings and other games are fine. Has anyone else had this this week? Started yesterday, same today.
  6. Well that's a nice post to read. I just hit 250, so a milestone but a way off yours!! I have been grinding the dailies, too, and am back into bounty hunting. level 26 with that, and level 35 of the new pass. A few nice nuggets there in among the dross. Still loving the game, glad you are, too.
  7. I got the free Breton this week, too, and have the black and white mane with it, bonded to level 2 and really enjoying her. Called her 'Festive Freebie', which probably needs changing.
  8. Game will literally die off if they don't make any money from it. Dailies were too easy and too lucrative for the business model to work. I quite like the new setup (although to be fair I'm rich already), getting maps and cash rewards instead. It is sort of liberating, not having to service that multi month streak. I can take Christmas off without being sad about breaking my streak!! It;s like a weight has been lifted.
  9. I'm conscious that I might be a lone reed, but that would make me very happy. Supposed to be a couple of new roles/expanded roles before Christmas so hopefully we are in the foothills of a bustling, happy online community. A frontier town up in the snow would really suit the Christmas vibe!
  10. I haven't had a lobby with more than six of us in a while, often I am on alone. I didn't struggle with being griefed, and gave as good as I got if I ever was, so personally I'd prefer to have a few of the glitches back just to get more players online. Otherwise it really isn't an online game, and I used to have some lovely interactions with other players. The current unpopulated lobbies actually has me replaying Story mode. Given the lack of players I find I just get more varied content and more fun over there. It's a real shame, I'm a bit sad about it. I keep my streak up then switch to Story. I keep the streak in the hope that they repopulate the lobbies, but I sadly don't think that they will (particularly as the consensus seems to be that the online version of the game is more enjoyable without other players. It isn't really an online game like that, but rather an offline game with different content. Posses no longer work, either, and several of the dailies now don't work as they require other players. So sorry to say I miss the good old days.
  11. I still love the game, my daily streak is kept up, I split my time between this and Elite: Dangerous. My only frustration at the moment is the lobbies with only 2-6 players in them. Frankly, at that point I might as well not be playing an online game. I'd happily have some of the glitches restored just to get the player lobby numbers back up. That aside, am still loving the game.
  12. Yes exactly my experience. I play a fair few games, always like DLC and updates, but also three of our kids are gamers and like different games, so capacity was always my issue. Don't know why I didn't think of an external drive before, to be honest!! As you say, literal game changer.
  13. Yes I dropped £60 on an external drive for the Xbox One X and it transformed things, just don't have to uninstall anything any more. Three of our kids also game so it was a battle. Complete convert to external drives. Superfast, as you say.
  14. I get people joining coop missions pretty much instantly when I go on. I do them for dailies, or just for some variety occasionally, that waiting sounds like a bug. Although frankly, if you don't like playing with others you might enjoy the solo story more!
  15. Once you upgrade the shack the whole way there's quick cash and good xp to be made at moonshining. The margin isn't great but it's fine. A batch of strong moonshine only takes 48 minutes to mix, but sells for over $200. The mash costs $30-$50 depending on how many recent bootlegger missions you have carried out. Plus it's great for dailies. If I log in for an hour, I can set the mix going when I log in, then 50 minutes later sell it and trouser $150+ in profit, for very little work. Plus drinking your own moonshine gives a decent stat boost for a while. It is well worth doing in conjunction with other activities.
  16. I'm finding the new update great. The new Wheeler & Rawson club is literally free as they give you back gold bars, there's a Zorro mask, The new role horse looks good, I like some of the new outfits, and the updated layout for the dailies is great. With legendary animals now in it gives us a lot more hunting/crafting outlets, so feels very Old Westy. Also I did the trade route event today and it let me take two revolvers in, so they seem to have addressed that annoying bug. I'm not as high level as some of you (208), but I spent 150gb on various stuff yesterday and it has given the game a real refresh for me. New wilderness camp fire (free via Twitch link), new outfit, new things to do. I'm very happy with it. Rumours of two more roles later this year with one supposed to be lawman so I'm hyped for the game. Really loving it. And animal spawn is great for me, Xbox One even with a busy lobby last night.
  17. Thank you, that's the one. I don't have it equipped but do have it unlocked to level 3. If some bunch of new player try to gang up and take the old man down then it's Gunslinger's Choice and show them what happens when they mess with Captain & Tenille.
  18. Yes, I was the target of one last night - wonder if it was you??? Was the first time I have been targeted, took me by surprise. I got a prompt on the screen and the a large red icon showing me where the attacking player was. I was out gathering wild feverdew for the daily challenge. Fortunately had a fast horse, and also a Rolling Block with me (as my main fighting guns were back at Camp. I checked and the attacker was level 10, I'm level 198 so didn't seem very fair on the attacker. I didn't have much close range artillery with me and was backed up to a canyon, I tried to take out the attacker with the Rolling Block. Unfortunately I missed, pesky moving targets, and downed his horse which I felt bad about. I was awarded $14-odd and 100+ xp. In all my time playing it was the first time I have had that, wonder whether the attacker picked me from a list or just was awarded a random player target?
  19. Hello! Sorry have been tucked up away from the forum with various Covid things, then my wife was hospitalised (not Covid, jsut bad luck lost her sight for a while but all mostly better now, phew!) so with four kids and work haven't been on the laptop much. Largely as my daughter (7) hogs it for her school work. But if anyone wants to know anything about pirates, oceans, three dimensional shapes or the times tables up to 12 I'm your man..!) Anyway with apologies for the waffle (out of practice?), @James Hickok_1837 has really answered now (thank you, and sorry for disappearing) but the two I heard were lawman and rancher. Heard from a decent source that lawman is confirmed for later this year (was delayed by lockdown but is still this year) and they hope to bring out rancher at the same time. I'm hoping they also drop Mexico at the same time, maybe a vain hope but as they have the maps from RDR1 it must surely happen at some point. Loving the game at the moment - level 197, 304 gold bars (ready to buy the new update), 96 day streak and almost have all the ability cards at level III. Happy days.
  20. Thanks for posting this. Chuffed about the ability card upgrades - trying to finish my set of grade III this week, so very welcome. Level 195 now and properly back into the game. Loving it!
  21. There is a persistent rumour that they're going to drop the rancher role in an upcoming DLC, which would give you the horse taming. Seems they'd be crazy not to, as they have already written the code for it all. Am sure they'll also drop the legendary animals in a DLC, too. Between those, lawman and Mexico there's a lot to look forward to.
  22. I don't know which platform you're on, but I think if you block another player the system should stop you instancing with them. I have blocked and reported a few on Xbox and haven't had a repeat occurrence with the same player (although I do see a fair few repeat players). I don't mind a bit of PVP at all, but if someone is just deliberately messing up my gaming for the hell of it and it isn't just regular PVP then I'll report them. I'd certainly report the AFK/race thing you describe. Then block them on Xbox.
  23. It is really weird, I wish I understood the pattern to the bugs better. I;m also on Xbox One and the game has been solid as a rock for me for a couple of weeks now. I hit level 195 last night, so ten levels in three weeks. I can now do the full range of missions within one session and rely on it, so I did resupply missions and moonshine missions last night with no issue. Did all bar one of the dailies. It's like a different game since mid/late May. But I'm obviously very naiive as I assumed that meant it was fixed for all Xbox players. Sorry you're still having issues.
  24. I do Trade Route and Salvage events whenever they come up (which isn't as often as a few weeks ago) and I can only wield one handgun in those, won't let me equip a second, which is annoying but also feels more authentic (quite like blasting away with a single Navy in Salvage, and it's my trusty Springfield for Trade Route anyway), but I have to tell you that I play every day (got my streak back up to 81 days since they fixed my glitches) and I have never had any of the other bugs you mention, sorry. I'm on an Xbox One X.
  25. Yes I enjoy Moonshiner. I'm level 20 in all the roles but keep doing Moonshiner now even thought the money isn't that great. First few levels I was making a loss and now I do it for the xp rather than the coin. Bounty Hunter I agree with you. I levelled it up just to get the tricks, then found that I never use the tricks!! Just never think to. I enjoyed the legendaries, but only repeat them now when a posse wants to. Excited for the rumoured Summer roles.
