Latest Patch Blunders


Recommended Posts

 

Not sure how to get a message to Rockstar but why the hell have they taken the clear lenses out of the brass rimmed glasses and replaced them with ridiculous opaque ones?

The previous ones were so much of the time and now they just look like a joke.

As usual for me their forum site seems to be so bugged or whatever I can never get on there to put the question.

Anyway, would appreciate some clarification from someone here. :)

Just an fyi.....  Rockstar doesn't have a forum and this site has no affiliation with them nor Take Two.  They do have a feedback site but it's more of a suggestion box as they don't provide replies.

Thank you for the reply.

I'm always being told that they do not have a site yet so many sites give the impression that they are in some way affiliated so I keep trying.

I can understand a company not wishing to have a forum but actually not having one is one big cheat where they want all the benefits with none of the pain of making their money in the gaming world.

They have ruined the brass rimmed glasses and these glasses gave a very good authentic look to how certain characters are created. Now that they are completely opaque what is the point of them? what kind of thought process would choose to turn the wearer into a blind man?

They have also managed to ruin the monocle by making it look like the wearer has half a boiled egg stuck in a frame.

I know this is off topic but when it comes to trying to sort something out with Rockstar it's like banging your head against a rock.

I preordered RDR2 for PC and the game has taken up virtually all of my gaming time.

About a week ago I decided to revisit GTA V only to find that I couldn't get online but was put back to the single player game.

I got all the usual excuses: activation taking longer . . .etc., etc. Googled and tried all suggestions. Reinstalled game.

Nothing works.

It is impossible to get past Rockstar's non-human support desk to an actual live person.

Can anyone please help?

The only way i know is through their Support site here:

https://support.rockstargames.com/

That's one thing I don't miss from my PC days are the issues with some games and griefers.  I still play GTAO to this day on my PS4 and rarely have problems.  Sorry you're having issues though.

Thanks for the reply but that site is devoid of humans.

Rockstar have what I see as a callous attitude towards us players as they refuse to see direct communication as an important part of the whole process.

I can understand them taking away text from RDR2 but that doesn't make it the correct way forward as the removal of communication in the way they have done it has not made it an online game but more of a single player game played online.

Having voice chat doesn't cut it either as no-one uses it like they did in TDU2 where we would run in and out of groups of players and all chatting to one another . . . in RDR2 they take you for an idiot if you start chatting. Oh how times have changed, now there isn't even text so next must be no communication whatsoever?

Without wishing to get too philosophical I blame social media sites - of which I belong to none and never will - which have promoted the ugly nature of humankind leading to Rockstar deciding that the only way to deal with people is to keep them away from being able to communicate, and in that they have it right. . .  but is it their decision to make?

You ain't lying. I bought the game on PC at launch and only recently was able to play the game.

Finally found an online video where some guy has explained some details which make sense.

He was having all the problems I was having and only by repeatedly trying finally got online in GTA V. But as he pointed out it was pointless because he also got a lot of warnings that because of server problems nothing would be saved.

I don't mind problems as we are talking about electronics and the Internet but what shits Rockstar are when they tell us nothing and keep chasing every way to get our money. I spent £45 on gold in RDR2 PC because I wanted the benefits of the latest big update and now one of the favourite parts for me - poker -  is not available and as usual we get told nothing.

Something I forgot to say.

This guy who gave a good explanation mentioned a 'money wipe' could be the reason for GTA V problems as some glitch was handing out millions of dollars.

I had been searching Google for an answer to the problem and came across a guy called; Brandon Playz, who had a video up for how to play solo online. It was obvious that this sniffing and twitching - voice was erratic - youth spends his rime searching for, and with videos exploiting, glitches.

It beggars belief just how casual so many people are about cheating and causing all this inconvenience for those who play legit.

But then, social media has taken the mist from the eyes for virtually everyone so nothing surprises me when it comes to what humankind really are. . . . and Zuckerberg wants us to believe that it was all about bringing people together as if that was something good for the people? yeah, sure, good for hs pocket and nothing else.

Still asking: "Does anyone know why the poker is down in RDR2 Online?"

Can you see the poker icon on the map or it's missing at all?

When I go to the map and click on any place which has poker the poker icon comes up.

When I go close to the table I get this message:

" This feature is not available now. Please come back later."

Are you able to play poker?

You also have to realize you're on PC and others may be on PS4 or XB1 like Antonia.

There is a small clock icon over the places where poker can be played and I did wonder if it represented some sort of work being done on the feature?

No i can't play poker due to my country's law restrictions about gambling. See here.

Well, I tried earlier this evening and had no problem.   .....PS4.

 

Maybe it is just for PC.

Eveything else in the game is working just fine so it is a bit of a mystery.

In TDU2 Casino I was world number one in the cash game for the first about 18 months to two years and then the cheats cracked it so I left. I do well in RDR2 poker but Rockstar have very sensibly made it limited Hold'em with the balance about right where money is concerned but when you know what you are doing it isn't too hard to take advantage of those not educated in poker play. So, if you frequently don't play every hand but tend to get winners when you do make a move and quickly have a large stack in front of you maybe someone has reported me as a cheat and Rockstar have blocked me. After all they do tend to prefer quick radical measures over fairness.

Not only don't I cheat but wouldn't know, nor care to know, how to cheat in any game . . . what's the point in gaming if you cheat? I can only imagine that for so many losers even the delusion of an undeserved leading position will do over achieving nothing.

 

I've sorted getting online in GTA V but problem still there in Poker.

The problems started after the last big W10 patch so went into msconfig/services and disabled MS services and I was back online in GTA V. I put it down to the update causing some sort of conflict.

The problem is/was connected to the Rockstar game library service but I can't figure out exactly what.

....so are you still talking about not being able to get into a poker game in RDO or GTAO?  I'm confused.

I do know that I can join a game in RDO without issue.  I also have not heard anyone mention problems with it on console or PC.  I would suggest sending a trouble ticket to R* Support.

GTA V, sorted. MS update caused the problem.

Sending a ticket to Rockstar is a waste of time as it is all computerized. They don't do support tickets like other companies where a real person responds.

Actually, they do but you can sometimes get a canned response.  You're likely reaching a first tier CS which is usually run by a 3rd party.  The degradation ins service has been a problem since PC released.

I got a response which opened with: " We understand your concern that you are unable to play Casino games in GTAO ". Duh, it was sent to RDR2 support and had that heading plastered across the top of the page, so, like I said.

Don't know what else to tell you then......

Thanks for your input.

I verified all files which triggered some other updates but no joy so am reinstalling again. Sometimes it's just some program lines which need straightening, so to speak, so after verifying another install might do it?

Been around computers long enough to know that these things are usually something stupid and I'm sure the big W10 patch is behind this problem.

Yeah, that's one reason I stopped gaming on PC.   ......main reason was my obsession with upgrading.  

The only thing I miss are some of the more milsim leaning games, flight sims and some others.  Console rarely has anything that good in those genres although there are some promising titles in the future for the next gen.

Well, RDR2 wasn't ported to PC hence the best version of the game and that is what I had been waiting for as my rig can max out the game and it certainly is possibly the best looking game available today.

Just stood in the Blackwater saloon as two other human players came in and could only walk around the poker table. Rockstar are only making excuses in their replies but with the falloff of human players in the towns it is obvious that the poker table is broken for the PC players.

Well, I wish there were someone with a PC that could chime in to verify this for you.  In fact, you may just want to make a new thread in the PC sub forum or with "PC" in the title asking this question (about not being able to access gambling and if others are having the same problem).

Ah! thanks, I hadn't checked out the rest of the site. I'll take your advice.

Hahahaha . . . reminds me of buying 'penny' shares around the turn of the century.

Lovely concept but it's not yet it's time . . . too big, too ambitious.

It has tried for so long to realise its potential . . . and failed.
