2700x , 16GB Almost done now, it's downloading some more data too.

 

Edit : Unable to launch, and apparently no one has found a workaround for the launcher issue yet. :rant:

Game working after BIOS update and running as administrator + disable full screen optimizations.

 

This is what works from me (found in reddit) - Fullscreen mode should frameless windows, once you inside the game, press and bring the task manager and tab back to the game and now press tab again to bring the task manager on top of the game , push it in some corned for the screen and play the game..so far this setting never give a single  freeze with default graphic setting I am getting avg 42 n max 71 n min 19..with quality favorable, i am getting min 19, max 71, avg 42snip

Rockstar has rolled out an update to its launcher that, among other things, fixes some crashes that can occur when starting Red Dead Redemption 2, including the Epic Games Store version.

 

Here's the full changelog:

 

   Fixed an issue that resulted in the Rockstar Games Launcher returning the error "The Rockstar Games Launcher failed to initialize" on startup
    Fixed an issue that resulted in the Rockstar Games Launcher preload decryption getting stuck and not completing
    Fixed an issue that resulted in the Rockstar Games Launcher returning the error "The Rockstar Games Launcher exited unexpectedly" when launching Red Dead Redemption 2
    Fixed an issue that resulted in crashes when starting the Rockstar Games Launcher from the Epic Games Launcher
    Fixed an issue that resulted in the Rockstar Games Launcher returning the error "Unable to launch game, please verify your game data" when launching Red Dead Redemption 2 from the Epic Games Launcher

 

To update the launcher, close any Rockstar games that may be running, and then close the launcher itself by right-clicking the icon in the Windows taskbar and selecting exit. Then restart it (I always like to wait a beat first) and the update should apply automatically.

 

Also, here is the RDR 2 (PC) Launch Issues/ Other problems and apparent solves so far:

Be smart and wait for STEAM release. Many issues will be fixed by then and we'll get to play on a stable platform.

Issues might be ironed out as time progresses but steam will be just another store, you have to deal with the Rockstar launcher anyway

 

Btw I have completed chapter 1, chap 2 camp looks so nice

Did not do the BIOS update

 

Helped some people in getting the game to run. Also, updating Windows 10 from version 1809 to 1903.

 

I was going through that massive Reddit thread now (the link I posted earlier) and lots of people still unable to launch the game, even after doing the BIOS, fix and Windows updates. :(

R* don't want bad reviews so even if they add DRM on Steam then they'll need to iron things out before launching the game on STEAM which tends sell millions of copies. 

Also you'll be downloading and launching it from STEAM itself and the r* launcher will be sitting ideally in background doing literally nothing.

So the STEAM users won't be facing any issues. If the game is causing problems than it's a whole different matter but i don't think that's the problem here.

You'll have to start R* launcher before starting the game from STEAM, the game will verify the link first and then begin. If they add DRM. 

So start the launcher - sign in - minimize and do whatever you want through STEAM.
