Don't know what you guys are talking about re: PvP

If someone kills you, you simply select "Parlay" and they can't attack you again for 10 minutes. You always respawn within 100-150m and there's no penalty.

You can also press "L" to bring up the player menu and select "defensive", which means your character has like 200% HP when being shot by another player, so it's hard to grief you.

But again, if someone kills you, just "parlay" and you become immune for 10 minutes.

I kept pwning this one loud-mouthed hillbilly over and over, and he refused to hit Parlay, and just told me I had to stop, or else he was reporting me to rockstar for griefing. I'm like LOL have you EVER played GTA online!? Also, the game devs have already implremented a feature in the game to do exactly what you want, which you refuse to use... and now you want to waste someone's time reporting me? Fucking Karens.

Yes, the system is better in RDR2 than GTA but its not fun when your horse is run over or shot out from you and it costs money to revive it via the potions I have to buy... or ride a nag back to a stables to revive my horse.

And is it a haxfest like GTAO?

No, absolutely not. Never ever would Rockstar let one of their online PC games become a hackfest. What are you, some kind of negative nellie? This ain't no GTA5 online there pardner.

Anyway yes, it can be a hack fest and with cheap online only accounts I expect it to get worse. Although lately there is a bug for some players that disconnects you in 30s-2mins of logging in, thought to be from the last small patch and update to the launcher or game so that has made me lose interest.

For a long time, Rockstar's solution to hacking issues was to basically give you your own world or small population servers where you would rarely run into another player. This was actually nice because it meant you could get things done without a hacker or just pvp ruining your moonshine runs. A month or so ago they brought back large pop servers or whatever and now you actually see more than 1-2 people in the world. It also made it harder to get legendary animal spawns and you had more chances at griefers/hackers.

Some of the pvp is fun but with so many hackers out there... it wasn't worth it. On top of that, for me the game has just been buggy since the July update. I should actually start playing single player since I have 250+ hours in online only which is mostly stable still.


TLDR, this is Rockstart trying to drum up interest in RDO and get people to buy more in game gold like GTA shard card cash. At least in GTA they offer new content worth a damn and the hackers while annoying are less of a problem at times.

Those with a current AMD and drivers...

First 6800XT and 3080 are very close, each has their strengths that have been measured.

There are some things that I really like with NVidia software that I use all the time or often, does AMD have any equivalent?

#1 In NV Control Panel I can set all games to run at 40% Sharpness (I can choose off to 100%) why this is important to me is we all know TAA will cause bluriness and still a lot of games themselves don't add the sharpness back in. This feature is a godsend to me, it makes TAA tits. And games that do have the sharpness the 40% doesn't over do it. Does AMD have anything like that?

#2 GeForce Softwar Alt-Z, you can go into Game Filter for quite a few of the big games and adjust color, brightness, HDR effect, Sharpen Effects etc. It is basically re-shade built in. No fuss, no muss and there is almost always a tweak here or there that I can make a game simply look better. This one is more nice to have over #1.

I know there are other Nvidia things they do, but I think #1 for me could be the biggest. Is there a good place to see all the AMD software features they have?

There are probably some YT videos showing off the "Radeon Software". The 2020 version should let you adjust/override settings globally for AA and Anisotropic, tesselation settings for games individually. The software I think has detected all of the games I have installed, certainly the steam ones it has.

On #2, it does look like you can set it for individual games for color/brightness. I've not messed with it myself so I don't know if it works on the fly though.

Man, T&L... that brings back the memories. I think it was almost two years before I played a game that used it.

A surprisingly HUGE amount of games are not on sale though....

They're likely saving those for Thanksgiving or Christmas sales. GOG and/or devs alternate game sales over the past few years. Last year there were a few games that I passed on in November sale that did not go back on sale in December.

"Rogers' strongest words of the hearing were reserved for Epic, which she continued to admonish for bringing its current problems on itself. "You were not forthright," she told Epic's counsel. "You were told you couldn't do [your own in-app purchasing option] and you did... You can try all you want, but you're not going to convince anybody that you tried to have Apple approve of it. It's self-harm."

Finally some sanity in the courts.

I was really looking forward to this.... Watching streamers it looks like the AI is janky as hell and you have to watch its moves in real time. Ugh...I don't have time to sit and watch 30 seconds of AI running into obstacles for every enemy action. Hopefully they can tighten it up in a patch and add in the option to display AI moves at 3x speed or something.

The overarching 3D map so that you have a good feel of the battlefield is something that has been sorely lacking from titles like Xcom. Glad to see that...

Yeah, watching the AI routinely run into walls, boxes or other obstacles and just running in place for 5-10s was just sad. Saw a couple of game crash bugs and read lots of people having them. The best part was the AI running to a wall, crouching, staring straight at it for 10s then going into overwatch.

Part of me feels like, had Epic not launched EGS, many here that are against them would support them.



But if Apple is totally ok here, it would set a nice precedent for Microsoft to say that all Windows software has to go through a Store they create and take a cut of. I think that would be an utterly disastrous business decision, but if iOS can lock itself down to anyone not paying Apple 30%, I can't think of a single reason why Microsoft couldn't legally do the same.

It would be utterly disastrous for Microsoft and they floated the idea years ago. You seem to have forgotten about Windows 8 debuting the Windows Store and Microsoft talking about requiring all windows based software to be only via their store back in 2012. You might recall such luminaries objecting like Gabe Newell from Steam. Steam went on to create the Steam OS based on linux and Proton software, a fork of Wine to run Windows based games in Linux. That project still goes on today. Another objector was none other than Tim Sweeney, Head MuckyMuck of Epic Games. The idea was righly ripped apart by almost everyone in the Windows world.

You do have games sold on the Windows store and via their Game Pass monthly service now and from what I've read, the games are locked down completely, no mods allowed. People use it because its $1 for new members for now.

I enjoy that you reuse my "utterly disastrous." But Microsoft just tried to create a store there, not lock anything down to it, as Apple has done. They wouldn't be that stupid.

But this could show them that it would be stupid not to. I still do not find it feasible, because they'd lose businesses which are now their focus, but the difference between Windows and iOS isn't really huge.

As RogueSix mentioned, it wasn't just a store that scared many big names in Windows software. The only way Microsoft has gotten people to use their store and ecosystem for games, especially after the failure of GFWL several years ago was to create the Xbox Game Pass where for the initial trial period its $1 a month to play new games along with simultanious release of Xbox and Win10 versions of games. Locked down versions that cannot be modded, which makes many games worth less in value. $1 for the new CrusaderKings3 is nice, as a demo but you can't mod it at all which kills longevity for a game like that.

Microsoft could try this if Apple wins but you're offering a what if that has already been tried and failed for Microsoft.

And yet, if Apple is successful here, you don't think it won't cross Microsoft's mind? Where are people going to go, honestly?

They'll go wherever offers the freedom Windows used to. It might take time but you would have, oh... the income stream of Valve, EA, Ubisoft, GoG, Epic and every major software dev or publisher who doesn't want to be locked into Windows store ecosystem to create a new OS or more Linux compatibility via Proton software. I'd sure drop Windows in a heartbeat at this point for gaming as I detest the loss of control in Win10 at the Home/Pro level of the OS.

"* It is probably very tempting for Microsoft to have their own Walled Garden and money printing machine."

They've tried when they brought out the Windows store with Windows 8, about 8 years ago. What was the reaction of Valve/Steam? The creation of Steam OS and then making Proton (a Wine fork) compatibility program to run Windows games on Linux OS'es. Timmy Tencent was also rather unhappy with MS when they announced a desire to lock most software behind the store. It was a silly idea because it would kill much of the reason people still use Windows, its open nature.

Epic would have more of a legal and moral leg to stand on here if they hadn't played games with Apple and Google by putting in their in-app purchases against the contract terms of Apple and Google. I'm sympathetic that devs, especially small devs where that 30% is too much of a cut that makes their apps pointless to release on the iOS/Play stores but thats where you push the public awareness of the issue and try to negotiate with Apple. You don't play PR games, break the contracts and enlist kids addicted to your game to demonize your opponent. I'm not surprised though given that Epic's strategy for the last two years on PC was to demonize gamers as toxic for any criticism while they locked people into their store for some games with an inferior digital retail store/launcher program. But you know, game makers need more money, support them! Oh, and many of those game devs had no problem putting their games out on all the consoles with their 30% cut of the pie.

Epic and Sweeney's double standards just kill any argument they have here.

And funnily enough, I'm only buying stuff on Epic when its on sale, sometimes discounted 50%. I've been burned enough buying games on all platforms where if I'd waited 6-12 months I'd have saved $40-60. Where I pay more if I buy the season pass after the fact even if the season pass is valued at half off if you buy it bundled with the base game.

Offering exclusivity on the EGS is a side effect of what is required to break the statu quo in order to reach this goal. It looks nasty for the consumers, but it's only temporary.
Why would it be temporary, and how does it advance that goal? I don't see how exclusivity deals and free games will break the status quo. What do they do to incentivize people to buy non-exclusive games from Epic? EA/Origin has had their own exclusives, and they offer third party games, but for a long time it was unclear to me why anyone would buy them on Origin if there was no price advantage (and there never was), and all reports suggest that in fact no one was. Now they have a subscription system, so that's something. But for Epic, once the "temporary" exclusives and free games end, why would anyone but Redeye and Slick buy from their store instead of Steam, GOG or any other storefront?
A multi-million dollar corporation probably didn't put any thought into what they were doing but a person posting in a gaming forum understands how it works. And you are correct, only two people will ever buy games from them again. It was all for naught. Crazy Ucrazy

Well, given Epic/Sweeney's silly moralistic PR campaign for the last 1.5 years since the launch of the Epic games store it doesn't take a genius to question why they've gone the insult your customer route (toxic gamers who are all review bombing jerks) and promote solely their suppliers concerns. That tends to indicate that they really only care about themselves and suppliers not the actual end users aka the gamers buying the games on their store of so far mostly freebies and exclusives.

GI Joe has crossed over with Transformers several times. It is odd timing for a GI Joe game.

As I said in the other thread, I think a tactical X-com style game would be a lot more enjoyable than this.

I'm pretty sure there are GI Joe mods for Xcom2 out there already. There are some good Star Wars ones I've seen.
