Red Dead Redemption 2 PC patch fixes 12 crashing errors and Vulkan stability

Rockstar has been steadily patching up Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC in an effort to tackle instability issues, crashes etc. This week, update 1.14.1 began rolling out, fixing 12 crashing errors and Vulkan stability, which should further smooth out the stuttering errors. Now we just have to hope that all of our graphics settings don’t get reset again.

The update began rolling out on the 25th of November, so some of you may have it installed already. If not, just launch the Rockstar Games Launcher and the update should automatically start downloading for you.

Here are the patch notes from Rockstar:

  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when changing Windows audio devices/settings while the game was running
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when launching the game after switching between Vulkan and DirectX 12
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when graphical settings were changed and applied while close to the VRAM limit
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during loading screens when launching Story Mode or Red Dead Online
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when attempting to quit the game
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when switching between several input devices
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during gameplay when using keyboard and mouse controls
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when transitioning between Story Mode and Red Dead Online
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when entering Photo Mode while the player was in cinematic camera mode
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during certain weather conditions on systems with multiple graphics cards
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in graphical errors and other instability when using Vulkan with multiple graphics cards
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a random crash during gameplay when using DirectX 12
  • Improvements to address issues that resulted in random crashes during gameplay in Story Mode and Red Dead Online

There is also an update for the Xbox One version of the game with ‘general fixes and improvements to stability and performance’.

KitGuru Says: I still need to finish off the prologue chapter on my PC playthrough to really test things in the main game map. So far though, most of my issues have been resolved in the last two patches, aside from graphics options being reset each time. Have any of you tried out this new patch? Has it improved things and did you manage to keep all of your graphics settings in place?
