    Gang Hideout Spawn Points

    Anyone else noticed a bug with these? This has been happening since yesterday for me. The red icon that marks the gang hideout on the map does not disappear (I'm sure it used to once you had actually started attacking the gang members), I never get the gang hideout cleared message and the XP for doing so, even though I'm sure all gang members have been killed (none visible on map, can't hear any shouting insults, no red areas marked on the edges of the minimap) and on one occasion the gang members were not showing at all on the minimap even when there were some left alive.

    rdr Crew Challenge 179 - I Fought the Law

    Thanks for the suggestion, but maybe do that next time. We've started now so I think we have to stick to the rules already in place.

    rdr Crew Challenge 179 - I Fought the Law

    I wouldn't think of one location being more"legit" than another really. These are early days for RDR challenges and we're still working out what can be done and what works. So if we get people using a range of different places now that's good. We can compare and always revise the rules for a repeat of this sometime.
  6. Crew Challenge 179 - I Fought the Law A RDR2 online solo challenge. Fairly simple; the winner is whoever gets the most law men kills in 5 minutes. Save a video that shows your General Stats where it lists the number of law men you have killed both before and after your 5 minutes is up. Timing starts with your first law man kill and just ends 5 minutes later. You'll need to time the 5 minutes yourself as you make attempts at this. Me and another volunteer or two can check the videos once you've uploaded them to Youtube or wherever else you use. It should be easy enough to deduct a couple of kills if they happen after 5 minutes But please try to stop killing and show your stats just after the time is up. If too many come in after 5 minutes it may be difficult to know how many to deduct. post the video of your best score here any weapons any ammunition any location feel free to eat food & drink tonics no penalties for dying how you do this is up to you; find a nice safe spot, rush in all guns blazing, shoot from horse back, blow things up, or whatever, it doesn't matter. Starts 19:00 GMT 14th Feb Ends 19:00 GMT 25th Feb

    I was thinking pretty the same as well. And I could see some people going out of their way to get a bounty just for the challenge of fighting the bounty hunters. So that may make things worse.

    Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

    I'm a huge Queen fan and loved the film, but was actually surprised it did so well overall as I didn't think non-Queen fans would like it so much. @Con Just picking up on couple of things you mention. I've read 2 biographies of Freddie Mercury and seen many documentaries on him and Queen, and these are the impressions I get from those and my own recollections growing up in the 70s and 80s. I've never read or heard of him knowing other members of the band in childhood. He was born in Zanzibar (Southern Africa), went to school in India and the whole family moved to London when he was in his late teens. As I understood the basic story of the band's formation, which the film covers but speeds up, Brian May and Roger Taylor where in Smile whilst at university in London and Freddie was a fan of the band who got to know them. When the lead singer / bassist Tim Staffel left, Freddy replaced him as the singer and after trying a number of bass players eventually John Deacon joined. I do not ever recall anyone mentioning Freddie's race, religion, family background etc. He had quite pale skin and I assume most people would just have thought he was white. So I suspect the reason the film only refers to this once is because it just was something hardly anyone made an issue of, neither positive nor negative. According to the most recent biography I read, when Freddie first had an HIV test they were not 100% accurate and so he did not believe the positive result. Over the next couple of years he had more tests and even though they all kept coming back positive he seemed to cling to the hope that they were wrong. I don't know if by the time of Live Aid he had accepted he was HIV positive or not. It seemed to be that he knew he was ill, but irrespective of whatever it was, he just wasn't going to let it stop him making and performing music.

    gta&rdr Whacked Out Wednesdays

    At the moment I'm not sure what will be happening, unless we get a couple of more RSVPs. Our neighbours are coming round this evening to discuss some things and I was hoping they would have been by now, but they haven't. If they do come whilst I'm in-game I will have to drop out at very short notice. So it would be better if someone else can form the posse if they haven't been by start time.

    Gang Hideout Spawn Points

    I've gone through @AlCohonez's spreadsheet and noted down what times we have seen gangs at each hideout between. I've assumed where we don't have data between two times close together that do have data that the gang would be there between those times. e.g. for Bachus Station we have seen gangs there at 01:00, 02:00, 06:00 and 08:00 so I am assuming gangs can be there any time from 01:00 to 08:00. There are still a lot of gaps to fill in, some of these hideouts have only been seen open for a couple of hours, but I'm sure they must be open longer than that, we just haven't observed that yet. I also suspect there may be the odd mistake in places as well. Some hideouts appear to be open for more than 12 hours, which I doubt is correct. But what is clear is that however the game works out when gangs are there it's not as simple as in GTA when there were 3 clear times of the day for gang attacks to occur and they did not overlap. These time zones (whatever we call them) do overlap. It seems to me there some open from 00:00 to 12:00 and others from 12:00 to 00:00, but then there's some definitely open from 06:00 to 18:00 as well. So my guess is they all have a 12 hour window to be open, split into 4 overlapping groups, 00:00 to 12:00, 06:00 to 18:00, 12:00 to 00:00 and 18:00 to 06:00. But I can't be sure of that yet. These are the time between which we have observed gangs spawning. Time: start finish Bacchus Station 01 08 Bear Claw 13 17 Cholla Springs 19 02 Colter 18 18 Cueva Seca 03 06 Cumberland Falls 13 23 Ewing Basin 06 12 Firewood Rise 06 18 Fort Mercer 10 10 Fort Riggs 19 05 Gaptooth Breach 19 01 Grizzlies Mining 05 10 Hanging Dog Ranch 20 02 Jorge's Gaps DK DK Kamisa River 11 23 Lakay 19 03 Manteca Docks DK DK Monteca Falls 00 06 Mossy Flats 00 12 Pikes Basin 06 09 Quaker's Cove 05 14 Radley's Pasture 06 07 Repentance 12 18 Sea of Coronado 16 17 Shady Belle 14 05 Six Point Cabin 20 05 Solomon's Folly 12 17 The Loft 12 23 Twin Rocks 07 16 West Bayou 08 23 Willard's Rest 19 07

    The Favourite (2018)

    Just noticed this thread. I saw this a couple of weeks ago. Whilst I like it, and it is a very good film, it seems to me it is getting the nominations and awards mainly for the technical things (well shot, great sets, lavish costumes) and being brilliantly acted. The basic story isn't funny nor historically accurate, but I don't think it's supposed to be either of those. It's classed a comedy more because it doesn't take itself too seriously and there are many funny / silly / weird moments, rather than having you laughing out loud. As far as I'm aware the makers never claimed it to be historically accurate. The main characters all existed and I think did most of the things they do publicly in the film. But no one can possibly know for sure what went on in private and a lot of the important scenes just feature a couple of the main characters in private. To me the best thing that sums up what to expect from this film is that one of the credits is for a nameless character listed as "Nude pomegranate Tory". I'd give it 4.5 / 5, can't quite bring myself to rate it equally with my personal favourite films.

    gta&rdr Whacked Out Wednesdays

    RDR this week (tomorrow, Wednesday at 21:00 GMT) I'll attempt the same as usual, i.e. all join my posse, do stranger missions, if we come across gang hideouts on the way do those first. But if we have the same problems as last week getting everyone in a posse we can just try to do the gang hideouts. I think we can all work together to do those without being in the same posse, just be careful not target each other. We're getting to know at what times gang hideouts spawn https://www.domesticbatterygaming.com/forums/topic/18375-gang-hideout-spawn-points/ so I'll see if I can have a route planned that should takes us to active hideouts at the right time one after another. A train take over is another option. After doing that for a bit we can join a showdown, gunrush or race series to finish off.
