    Just FYI, just got patch 1.02 (PS3, 16MiB). Haven't found any release notes.

    Internet says:
     * Mo van Barr fixed.

     * XP from doing hideouts nerfed.


    (EDIT: Change log now here

    "The main issues fixed by the title update are as follows:

    • Resolved various NAT incompatibility issues (Click here for tips on how to optimize your firewall settings)
    • Improved connectivity to multiplayer for users with slower connections
    • Improved reporting for Shootout and Gang Shootout games
    • Fixed instance where Mo Van Barr would not appear as a bounty
    • Fixed multiplayer titles not appearing for some users in the outfitter
    • Fixed instance where lawmen stopped responding even though the player was wanted
    • Fixed Issue with hogtied victims disappearing when ragdolled
    • Fixed crash in Free Mode when cooking dynamite and going into the water
    • Fixed audible glitch at the end of some cutscenes
    • Fixed Solomon's Folly Action Area not ending after posse leader teleports in late
    • Corrected Social Club 100% Tracker so stats update properly
    • Various multiplayer issues addressed including load screen hang-ups and UI glitches
    • Eliminated miscellaneous game crashes

    Additionally, this update includes support for a new playlist by popular demand, Hardcore Free Roam supporting only expert aim.  This playlist will be released once this title update has time to propagate on both consoles.  We will update this post with the word as soon as that playlist is confirmed as functional."

     


    EDIT: Yup, I slept in Armadillo, and what do you know, up comes the Mo van Barr poster. Finally got the Deadly Assassin outfit.

    I really wish they hadn't nerfed the hideout xp, it allready took about 140 runs of pikes basin to get from 1 to 50. -.-"

    I actually let out a ''ooh?'' when I saw the patch update notification pop up. And finally can I style around in the deadly assassin outfit! MP I haven't been on yet though since I never bothered with simply spamming hideouts I probably won't notice much of a difference.

    If you can't get XP form doing hideouts, what can you do to get XP like that? The hideouts are fun but if I'm getting nothing from them, I don't see what the point is in doing them a million more times.

    Wait so now it's zero XP?? I figured it was just severely lowered. And as for alternate ways of getting XP, the competitive can really help push you up the ranks. It's definitely where I've gotten most of my XP I'd say. I'm at about level 37 now.

    It's better off I'd say. Least now it may force people to try out the pvp modes. There's far too little players in there while there was whole squads who would just spam solomons folly ect.

    No its not zero but yes servely lowered. But it was the only way to swiftly lvl up, having just hit lvl 50 for a second time, it has taken me a long time and making it harder to get xp seems 
    unnecessary.

    lowering the xp seams unnecessary. unless im mistaken, all the stuff you gain from leveling only stays in free roam. slowing people down so they have to take more time to get any of the good weapons/horses is just annoying and not helping. a game that has obviously uneven weapons and is open world has no real need for a leveling system in the first place.

    The leveling system is just to give you something to strive for. A reason to keep you playing to unlock all the extras. And the character skins do carry onto the free for all pvp modes, though yeah the weapons and mounts are solely for the free roam. But now it makes more sense. To get the most out of free roam you are to play more of the pvp because of it's, now, increased XP gain. Spamming hideouts was just ridiculous.

    too bad
     
    i haven't played much pvp, but i'm pretty sure hideouts still trump it in xp gain. "hold your own" is pretty cool, but i don't care much for the rest.

    Actually I mis-spoke, I'm getting about a third of the XP I usually get from gang hideouts. True, pvp is pretty dead but that's not really my thing anyway. When I feel the need to be constantly killed by someone a third of my age I play Halo. LOL! This is probably about it for me in multiplayer. I prestiged once and managed to do all the challenges that interest me. I'm not going to chase the last few achievements on this one.

    i get why there is a leveling system, its just that this game appears to have no real need for it. in call of duty when you unlock something it stays with you in every game mode, and more importantly the weapons are more even. if you unlock something in this game its only used in free roam, the only mode in the game where your just messing around having fun. and its not fun riding a donkey with a six-shooter getting taken out by a zebra rider with a high powered pistol.
     
    i agree spamming hideouts was stupid. but if you lower my xp in free roam give me more xp in the other game modes, that way i earn my stuff and can have fun in free roam and they get more people in pvp.

    I used to get around 2200 to 2300 XP from Pike's Basin, now I only  get 1900. The couple hundred that get lost add up quick, damn.

    People shouldn't be forced to do modes they don't like. I mean people paid for this after all and if you are on a 360...you're also paying to be online. I am not a fan of the competitive modes...they all feel poorly designed. I like Free Roam however...and this XP gimping of hideouts was unnecessary.

    i'm glad i got to lvl 50 last week, it took forever. I just logged in today and was noticing the xp difference, 300 less for most gang hideouts, and cutting twin rocks in half . Gimping the the xp from gang hideouts is not cool rockstar, not cool.

    If you you clear your system cache on xbox, it will delete this patch and then you can just play offline system link and get the same xp as before.

    They really should be making the competitive modes more worthwhile rather than making the hideouts less worthwhile. Make kills worth 100XP, so people are getting 1000-2000XP per match which is comparable to the time:xp ratio of doing hideouts.

    Well you're not being literally forced...it just means that you'll have to spam the hideouts even more so for XP if you avoid the pvp completely...and frankly if people were willing to spam them as often as they were initially, I doubt a load more runs wouldn't change much.

    Pretty sure that was one of the first patchs they did when the game came out. This is probably an idiot question but can I do this offline system link stuff with one xbox?

    Do want very much! It'll least make the high power pistol not such an overpowered pistol. I actually find the volcanic pistol much easier for head shots, strangely enough.

    Some instructions someone made to combat R* and their XP nerf.  Someone mentioned it in an earlier post I think.
