Red Dead Redemption 2 is suffering from the sins of the Rockstar Games Launcher, but the developer has issued a troubleshooting guide and a patch that addresses the reported roadblocks (via Eurogamer).
In some cases, the launcher won’t even start the game, which is mighty problematic. When players click ‘play’ on the Rockstar Games Launcher, it triggers an error that says, ‘Red Dead Redemption 2 exited unexpectedly.’ Complaints have mounted up and the developer has written a troubleshooting guide to go with the new patch for the dedicated software. Update v188.8.131.52 sorted the preload decryption problems specifically and has solved a host of other errors.
As for the ‘activation required’ launch error, players say you’ll need to log out and log in to the Rockstar Games Launcher for it to recognise a valid authentication. Honestly, this is a lot of work for a launcher that released two months ago. However, Rockstar Games has responded very quickly to the reports; after all, Red Dead Redemption on PC came out only yesterday. Fingers crossed the problems are resolved and players will be able to leap head-over-spurred-heels into the re-release.
