Yeah, I kind of thought that might be true... But, what really gets me is that it takes away my honor if I try to defend myself from them! That seems wrong... Other times, I can shoot back at people who are shooting at me without losing honor, so what's special about these guys?? Plus, it does seem random: one visit, the whole town is out to lynch me; the next visit, everyone is cool, people are gambling with me, asking me to help them catch horse thieves, etc... Weird...

I think it's just a small bug, in that the game doesn't recognize that that one character attacked you first. It happens fairly infrequently. In my first game, I came across a man and a wife arguing somewhere out in the middle of nowhere. I got off my horse, curious to see what was going on. The guy immediately gets on my horse and takes off, so I put a bullet in his back. -50 honor, and the woman runs screaming to the law, and 5 seconds later I'm wanted for murder and have a 40 dollar bounty.

So occasionally it gets confused.

I think the fame bonus is meant to apply to everything you do, not JUST when you use the 2 golden colored guns... I think those golden guns are purely aesthetic... But, I never heard you were required to use them to get the fame boost; I definitely got the impression ALL things you can possibly do to earn fame were boosted somewhat above people without the bonus applied... *shrug*

I'm pretty sure it doesn't, since I'm playing my second game now where I somehow don't have the golden guns (they're not showing), and I'm getting just as much fame as before.

Edit : I'm reading through some threads on gamefaqs about this, and it seems that the golden guns thing is indeed just an overall Fame BONUS. Which sucks even more, because I was already a Legend by the time I was halfway done in Mexico... Sigh. What I wouldn't give for a warhorse.

The one thing that kinda bugs me is that a life of crime simply DOESN'T PAY in this game. I can hold a guy up in the middle of the desert somewhere, he'll run off, I shoot him in the back, and he's got 5 bucks on him. The frigging bullet is more expensive than that!

You make so much more money just from hunting and skinning stuff that it seems rather imbalanced.
