Hi! So me and my friend both bought RDO standalone to find out that you need the full game for RedM. So we both bought it and everything installed fine, we got passed the update.rpf glitch with the current fix. But everytime we try to join a server we get stuck on an infinite loading screen? We tried restarting both RedM and our PCs. We also tried reinstalling RedM. I also tried logging in and out of the Rockstar Launcher as well as Verifying Integrity. We are not really sure what to do or how to fix it and I have personally scoured the internet for a fix to no avail. I really hope someone can help!

RedM currently does not support RDO standalone

Please re-read what I said. I upgraded to the full version. I don’t own RDO standalone anymore, I own the full game

You don’t ‘own the full game’, you own a new entitlement type which is ‘RDO standalone + Story Mode DLC’. This is not supported in game build 1311, and we’re focused on finishing OneSync for RedM (and the GTA V update that’s incoming) first before doing a patch update on RedM to the then-latest version.


So if I got a refund and got the original It will work fine?

Yes, it will work.

So, its a matter of entitlements, not actual game files? What is the actual process that causes it to stuck at “connecting”?

Rockstar’s DRM.

will we have onesync before 2021? thanks for working in redM!

Seeing as 2021 is only 3 weeks away. Unlikely.

3 weeks remaining,man of little faith :slight_smile:

And how can I get the full version. I had bought all versions. The only version I can buy is the Gold version.

No. Literally one search on the forum could’ve told you that

So those of us that bought RDO online and afterward purchased the full price Ultimate edition are screwed for Red M role play - would un installing both then reinstalling the ultimate edition be a fix

I have infinite loading and i bought the full game on epic games. not sure why its not loading me into the server. Bought the full game. Edit: my epic was linked to another rockstar account, i switched to that. It loaded me into the server, but i need to install saltychat. So im guessing since i got that far, it works.

I get infinite loading and have the full version.

Hi, first i am a French user so excuse me for my language.

I buyed RDO, but i realized that RedM does not support it. So my question is, is it intended to update RedM for the RDO owner. Thanks in advance.
