The latest "Red Dead Redemption 2" update on the PC introduces some popular enhancements.
Rockstar finally released last week's patch notes Red Dead Redemption 2 PC patch. The update was released on Monday, May 4, and the clock is 925MB.
As expected, it will not add any new content to the base game or Red Dead Online. However, it does major repairs and various upgrades. One such feature improves texture rendering. Rockstar said that players who set the texture to "medium" or "high" should see a clearer texture without losing any frames.
Red Dead Redemption's own TAA sharpening settings have also been expanded to allow players to push it further to get clearer images. This should replace some of the usual solutions for games to reduce the ambiguity of the game.
Other than that, the rest are just bug fixes. Read the full patch instructions below.
- Texture rendering has been improved under the "Medium" and "High Quality" settings, so the game will now display higher levels of texture detail without affecting the frame rate or requiring more system resources.
- The maximum range of "TAA Sharpen" graphic settings has been expanded to enable players to make the game look more blurred and match with external driver solutions.
- Fixed an issue that caused certain system configuration errors to report the amount of available video memory available to the game.
- Fixed the issue of graphics issues and lack of UI cache after upgrading the system graphics card.
- Fixed an issue where the texture near the campfire had flickering / flickering rendering when the parallax occlusion map was set to "Super Quality".
- Fixed a lighting issue that could cause shadows and shadow textures around the player on some systems when setting the parallax occlusion map to "Super High Quality".
