Rockstar continues to patch the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

There’s yet another stability-focused Red Dead Redemption 2 patch on PC. The update – version 1.14.1 – went live overnight, bringing a host of crash fixes for players running Vulkan, as well as DirectX 12.

There aren’t any exciting tweaks here, as most of the bigger problems were previously addressed in recent updates. There is, however, a fix for a couple of random crashes that would sometimes occur after selecting either single-player or Red Dead Online, as well as another that would happen seemingly at random during gameplay on DirectX 12.

You’ll find the full set of patch notes below.

  • 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.
