We knew that the Red Dead Redemption two shenanigans would kick off whenever the PC port arrived, and besides modders discovering you can change to dozens of creatures and characters in the game, gamers also have discovered something a little creepier. If you believed loathed period was over, think again.
Light spoilers for Red Dead Redemption two beforehand.
On the Red Dead Redemption subreddit, consumer DaniMoz noticed something quite odd. “IKZ is in the game files, Using mods to play as her. This is what she looks like.”
IKZ, for those not up to scratch their Dead Redemption two lore, stands to get Princess Isabeau Katharina Zinsmeister. The odd thing about this particular character is that she has been missing for 15 years from the time we carry the reigns as Arthur Morgan, and we never satisfy her in-game.
As stated by this Red Dead Wiki, Princess Isabeau was kidnapped during a trip to the US from the Luxembourg royal household, along with her missing individual posters are seen at Van Horn Trading Post – together with an anniversary post from the New Hanover Gazette No. 29. And, instead more creepily, there are a few trunks together with her initials on in the fencing in Van Horn Trading Post. A guy near Elysian Pool also educates the player he is searching for the princess – but nobody ever sees her.
The identity of this princess has turned into something of a meme among Red Dead Redemption lovers, while some others around the Red Dead Mysteries subreddit have obtained the hunt somewhat more seriously. Nonetheless, it turns her out version was there all along – and it all takes to get that’s a little bit of modding.
Players are handling to get models in the sport working with many different methods, such via rescue file edits, but also via a mod named Lenny’s Straightforward Trainer. I had a go at obtaining her version, titled “CS_PrincessIsabeau”, by adding the character name to the “models” lineup in the Ist.ini record of this mod. I discovered she does endure a birthmark on her right hand and right cheek, like the poster description (though this information a birthmark on her left). The Wiki also quotes she must be about 20 years old throughout the primary narrative of Red Dead Redemption two, which appears about the ideal age for its in-game version.
Therefore, why did Rockstar go to the issue of committing the princess an in-game version? It is likely a questline was intended for her and finally got tricked – departing Princess Isabeau’s version stuck in the game files. At least with all these modding tools she will have the ability to find the sunlight again.
In case you are wondering if this may work on notorious missing personality Gavin, but no luck so far – while a document is called after himusing it at the mod only summons Gavin’s buddy. Perhaps Gavin’s buddy was really… Gavin all together?
Something maybe equally spooky would be the problems Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to be having launch on PC. Unfortunately I fell victim to those overly yesterday, with regular freezes marring my own experience. Only let me mod in peace.
