Finally, the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PC took place, however, it will not turn to call it smooth and smooth. As it usually happens, there were many complaints from gamers related to crashes, freezes and poor performance, to the point of banality. Below we will consider some points that can be used to eliminate such complications.
Some crashes can be eliminated by the classic disabling of antivirus software. In most cases, we are talking about problems that arise immediately after starting the game. if you experience difficulties during a bank or train robbery, add RDR2 to the antivirus exclusion list or temporarily disable the software. Players who encounter a Red Dead Redemption 2 Exited Unexpectedly error should advise Rockstar drivers on the advice of Rockstar.
According to Nvidia’s tests, if you want to play at 60 FPS, then Red Dead Redemption 2 will require a powerful graphics card. Try switching from the Vulkan API to DirectX 12. Unfortunately, the solution is not universal, and even after such adjustments, many players continue to complain about errors. In this case, you need to wait for updates.
Reddit user under the nickname serhangelgor reports that such problems can be eliminated by disabling two cores in a quad-core processor through the task manager. To do this, start RDR2, switch to the dispatcher and select the «Details» tab. Right-click on RDR2.exe, select Set Affinity and uncheck the two processor cores.
Some commentators claim that a workaround did not help. One said that turning off the two cores and then switching the ones used (changing 0 and 1 to 2 and 3) had a positive effect. As with the transition from Vulkan to DX12, this does not guarantee error correction.
