Game update 1.5.0.77 and 1.5.0.78 - two for one day on patching!

Here are the patch notes to the latest version 1.5.0 (77 and 78) update. Yup it's a 2fer day! Also - note that today's patch time is going to be quite lengthy between 2 and 3 hours long.

Bugfixes
  • Fixed a high-frequency client crash.
  • Fixed LC vehicles retaining the speed restrictions of task items they were carrying when they 
  • Fixed the field supplier cooldown rates being swapped for premium and F2P players.
  • Fixed a character migration bug, enabling migration of old RTW characters.
  • Enabled new PunkBuster build, to reduce incidences of PB stuttering
Environments
  • Changed the factional restrictions in the Social District. Everyone can now enter the ground floor of both clubs, but the upper-levels will be off-limits to the opposite faction.
  • Adjusted several locations in Financial and Waterfront to improve balance.
Weapons
  • Updated the ‘Whisper’ with temporary VFX and SFX.
  • Improvements to HVR Scout (Premium Leased Weapon) - Improved Accuracy regeneration rate significantly. Increased fire rate to make it equal to the HVR-762. Initially we had it lower as to provide a downside to offset the increased mobility. After testing it definitely feels that the inability to 'almost' 1 hit is enough. This really helps it feel much more mobile than previously. It also now retains its accuracy on the move.
  • Slightly lowered damage of the NFA-9
  • Reduced Reload time on the NFAS.
Spawning
  • Made a few fixes to the spawning system. Now always uses targets from the current mission stage, and uses probable spawn locations for players to weigh spawning for dying players. Still a few fixes left here, but spawning is getting closer to being finalized.
Known Issues
  • Localisation/Translation; Much of the new and edited in game text has still to be translated and entered into the game. Playing APB in languages other than English may result in English text being shown anyway in some places.
Next priority items for the team; observe the results of these two builds, review other high priority bugs and items, while the rest of the team continues implementing the new and improved skill rating system.

  1. how do you get your old character back from the previous APB?

  2. We will put up the information on Character Migration next week. So stay tuned. We will turn that on and post both here and on the Forums when available.

  11. " Next priority items for the team; implementing the new and improved skill rating system. "

    Seriously, i couldn't care LESS about that. stop implementing things when you got a game that barely runs, fix the LAG, set the whole team on fixing the optimization of the game.
    i don't care about "new cool stuff n features"
    i just want a game that is PLAYABLE.
    thanks.

    Something tells me you're far from a hacker, you sound like someone who is dependent on other peoples tools. Stop pretending to be cocky, lol

    ReplyDelete
  13. i just dont understand why people want to ruin the game with hacks. if your just that bad at the game where you need to use such things just find something else to play

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Gamers Last
    Yeah I know, google.com is great bro.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @madmarino

    To state that hacks ruin the game, would imply this game wasn't already ruined. When G1 announced that it was acquiring APB, I knew it would be safe to hack.

    ReplyDelete
  16. @h-bomb
    what the doodles is Google.com? Should I google it?

    ReplyDelete
  17. the only thing that ruined the game for me was the hackers.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Are these builds live yet, because so far all I've downloaded was a 12mb patch. Nothing as lengthy or large as you've stated above?

  24. You guys... I hope everyone here realizes that we are still deep in Beta testing. Therefore - it's entirely possible we are NOT YET banning some people on purpose, since we might have more to learn from their behavior than banning them.

    Just sayin' :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You Bjoern... I hope YOU here realizes that you are never gonna come out of the deep Beta testing if you continue like this.

    just curious, why feed the hacker boy but ignoring my post?

    lets focus on the random underground market bug"

  28. Thanks for the update Bjorn.

    Sounds like some great stuff is rolling out and more is on the way.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'ts late and i'm pretty angry.
    but seriously, i think this game will die b4 it goes out of open beta.

    but i hope i'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sigh - @GamersLast, my favorite poster... for sure!

    @dECA - not sure what to respond to? Right now we have thousands of players in the game, and from all our test locations (US, UK, India) we don't see the issues you are referring to. If that's because we have better machines or just a different location I cannot tell, but your statement is far too vague to respond to. Where are you located, what hardware do you have?

    ReplyDelete
  31. HAHAHAHAH DECA GETS SENT TO RABOURCAMP!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha. sorry but thats just..i don't know.

    Just a question, do you read the "closed beta forums" ? IF you do, you would see a ton of ppl adressing the issues i'm talking about. even a post where ppl posting the hardware specs, and MANY have really good machines.

    I live in sweden, and my hardware 4gb ram, core 2 duo 2,66ghz, gforce 8800gt. i dont have a awesome machine, but don't you think i should be able to play on minimum settings ?
    well, i CANT. i'm running on the lowest possible settings and still got 15fps in a gunfight, 25 fps while driving.
    and i'm not alone. just read the forums please.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate to say this Bjorn but you have to admit that the optimization is pretty rough. CPU requirements are just too steep when compared to games like Crysis 2 (Yea I can max Crysis 2 but APB is a little laggy). I don't mind, I trust you guys will fix it up more and more. I love APB, and the Reloaded version you guys have produced so far but please don't say you don't know that there are issues in regards to what has been said because if that's then you must not read the dozens of topics made everyday in CB forums.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Bjorn
    On an unrelated topic, what are the plans for adding new clothing to the game? Personally, I'd like to see more hats/masks and other types of accessories.

    And would it be safe to expect new clothes added to the game to be unlocked and not only purchasable from the market?

    ReplyDelete
  35. back in the days i actually ran with settings "high" and had decent fps, what happened?, thats my question

    ReplyDelete
  36. i get a little bit odf the lagging and texture issue too. i have an AMD quad core, 6gb of ram , and an ati radeon HD5830 grphics card

    ReplyDelete
  37. OK, I see a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to expectation of performance in comparison to visuals.

    APB is more taxing than Crysis 2, it looks worse, but it's more taxing. Whenever you have such large maps and such customization abilities, performance will suffer greatly.

    Great performance / Great customization.

    Choose one.

    I have a triple core AMD processor ($70), 4GB of RAM ($40), and a Radeon 5670 ($65), and my performance easily hits 40FPS on medium settings.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @GamersLast - nice!

    If you are asking to marry me then I don't think we are of the same orientation, but I am happy for you that you live in a state that indeed permits civil unions :) Hope you find a good life partner.

    Also - our low-end reference machine is a X6800 processor (Dual Core, 3Ghz+)

    And yes - we are doing basically a 50 vs 50 game with 250 automous cars and 1000s of NPCs, with far larger maps than Crysis. But of course we are continuing to work on optimization. But the game design itself is far more complex than just the visual presentation would indicate.

    If we introduced smaller districts (or scenarios) as we have discussed with 10 v 10 playmodes and similar smaller setups, then the requirements would also drop.

    And keep in mind that RAM is critical to this game (and preferably 64-bit processing).

  42. Well...I don't know what Rabourcamp is but Bjorn is a fine man. He's probably the only G1 employee I wouldn't intentionally hop my car up onto the sidewalk to run over. You say gamers first, I say my bumper first, then the wheels.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I know there are differences in what is stressed between Crysis 2 and APB Reloaded. In the original APB though the game was far more optimized, at least for me and a few of my friends. My game runs min at 25fps so it's playable with my dual core 3.1ghz but if you read the forums there are many people with quad cores who are playing with worse fps then me even having better overall setups.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh @GamersLast - again - hope you find someone more to your liking to civil-unionize with in your state. My own preference is not of dudes (I am more of a ladies-person), but I certainly fully support your choice and right to pick just about anyone you choose. That in my mind is certainly (or at least should be) a human right.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @Bjorn
    I could put a wig on or something. I'm going to continue my witty anecdotal responses till I win you over.

  55. I see lots of outcry about lag and stutter issues. You have to realize your problems are not shared by everyone. Myself for example, the game runs EXCELLENT and im loving every minute of play. I dont get the PB spikes frequently like your saying, i do get the pb LAG spikes that happen NOT VERY OFFEN, and they are server wide, so in my eyes its fair. Everyone lags at once. lol.

    Some above listed their rig as 4gig ram and a core 2 duo. That is not going to be enough to run a semi open world shooter like this. That is just the fact. In a game like MW2(yuck), the environment is tiny, there are NO variables environment wise, very very little physics involved at all.

    Bottom line your computer was current about 4-6 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  56. How do you differentiate between a PB lag spike, and a normal lag spike?

  57. BJORN PLEASE ANSWER THIS

    i know you may not have a solid answer, but do you have any insight on when the US EAST JOKER server will be moved to the east coast and what state you have in mind. I understand if im looking too far ahead but please respond so i dont have to keep asking. TY and good job for sure.

    Dear Bjorn,

    We've recently been seeing a lot more 'friends' of people (not in the mission) planting their car on the delivery spot, making the mission effectively unplayable. This was a major issue in the old APB aswell.

    Is this being looked into, or would it be possible to find some kind of fix for this? ie: making cars/people planting themselves on the spot killable, or making them explode and die in a fiery blaze?

    It's incredibly annoying to have a 10 mission winstreak, and then lose to this, and instantly lose the threatlevel you worked so hard for.

    Kind regards,
    Mae.

  70. I too am loving every moment of my game play, I personally am not seeing some of the lag issues that i see some complaining of, it does take some pretty good specs to run this game but so do all games of this size and scope. Keep up the good work G1 this game has come along way and has so much potential, and if people cant accept that this game is great, and will be even better given some time and love from all of us, then go back to wow and troll over there, they have lots of people over there that can do nothing but whine about stupid crap so go back over with your kid buddies and whine away your sorry lives. G1 keep up the great work. Turf Wars!!!!!!!!!! Yeah my son is also playing on his computer which is a 1.5 year old comp with quad core 2.80 ghz, 9 gig ram, 1 gig video card and its running great for him too. See you in game.

  104. Oh and certainly none taken, but understand that I can't comply to your requests. See, this issue happened with the former APB, and nobody bitched about it...Now that G1 has acquired the game, now suddenly it's a deal breaker.

    So. Two patches in two days to "fix" the Punkbuster issue. Nothing's fixed.

    - I Just wanna report a player for using wallhack/aimbot/ in Patriot EU - his nick is GlaD and hes a russian pretending hes good.


    Look over him, hes hacking 24/7 - So you're going to just annalyze his behavioru and judge from a later buld? Are you crazy or are you just trolling?

    ReplyDelete
  110. I got some stuff to say too. Relevant or not?
    Is up to you out there.

    First of all. SNIPERS RUIN THE GAME!
    Lets get some more street action.
    Completely remove those sniper rifles from the game would save APB on that front. FACT!
    Ahh - Nice to get that one out...


    When I play, I very often get laggy and scattering sound. Very annoying, and sometimes hurting my ears.

    Also when in close combat with 3 or more players, I often get very bizarre lag spikes and fps drops to, like 8fps. Or so it feels.

    Every time I try to browser or set stuff for sale in auction house, Im 100% sure to get crash after 2mins.

    Often the graphics on clothings and cars are blurry or pixelated.


    And then there is this final thing, Bjorn.
    Now that you've said that you, intentionally, allow hackers, cheaters and so on to freely roam the streets of San Paro. Then fix that in-game report button NOW please. Otherwise, how will you know what players to learn from???

    I thought so...

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hey Bjron I've asked it before but didn't get any answer :) So I try it again :)

  112. hello BJRON.i am a old rtw player and didn't get in the cbt but a friend lets me use his account ,i have found alot of issues and solved some of them.

    1.crash issue solved for me by downloading full driver package(not just the drivers)duel vids

    2.invisable clothing on people(solved by disabling SLI/crossfire)please address this issue when you can

    3.i would hope all rtw accounts get active before OBT.(i am gonna buy premium when i get my account)

    4.most of my friends got emails ,saying they didnt get in CBT (i didnt even get that)so far i have not got any emails from g1 at all,the only emails i got is from g1 account creation(yea i checked spam folder)and all old emails

    5.i opened my ventrilo server to the public so people can chat about issues and i have helped many and tested abp on 10 machines .

    and still i have to play on a account thats not mine

    makes me sad gutterboy@cox.net

  113. In previews post I posted about my game crash and now I fixed it.

    So I think its better to tell everyone about it.

    The Graffiti bag. !!! when you put graffiti on you the game crashing every 10 min even every 5 min. So I removed it and now I can play 24 hours.

    Please fix that bag.

  114. Hey im testing closed beta right now and I am noticing some strange behavior in the driving.

    -Sometimes when I start driving a car it will move extremely slow. When I listen to the sound the car sounds like it never shifts from first gear and moves just like it too. Ive tried repairing the cars that I experienced being affected but it doesn't do anything. In these cases i just have to find a new car but I dont think we should have to?

  115. unless theres an in-game mechanic i dont know about? lol

    ReplyDelete
  116. @achiliez

    We as players think it's a bug where the car in question (I've found that it usually happens to the faster cars, like the Cisco) responds as if you're carrying a mission item (which makes the car drive exactly like those bugged cars) It's frustrating, I know. ;_;

    ReplyDelete
  117. Hey Bjorn :) I will try not to unleash my gay side of my self talking with you xD Lol

    Anyway, me and my friends has been discussing something, and we all wanted to ask, why it take so long fucking time to load a district.. it really cant take 1 minute to connect to the district server can it? So we came to the solution that it must be because the game is "unpacking some files" for the district... WELL! I have resently smacked 12 TB of HDD space into my pc, and wanted to know (if we are right) is there anyway we can keep these files unpacked at ALL times, so that we can get rid of the insane loading times?

    if we are wrong, then "to hell with it"

    Cheers EzioDK

    Can we get an approximate date for OB?

    ReplyDelete
  120. It's not delivery, it's Bjornoes.

    Estimated date of OB: Summer of 2020 (If all goes well)

  121. @EzioDK

    I think an SSD would improve the loading times ;) I have one myself and have about 20 seconds to join the district.

    ReplyDelete
  122. You do realize that in a free content, open district with content-aware loading, that twenty seconds is absolutely nothing, right?

    ReplyDelete
  123. Car Chases are now worthless and meaningless with a big disruption of VIP chase fun. Fixing something that wasn't completely broke has now broke a fun aspect of game-play.

    The suspense and excitement of game-play when a vip or carrying a mission item means your essentially a sitting-duck. I can understand the throttle reduction on top-speed for cars, but not only shouldn't acceleration be reduced, I think the bat swung a bit too much to the unfun side as a result.

    In addition, you introduced other un-fun issues:

    - The solution seems to have introduced bugs into the game, so many cars are now for no reason running slow as though they had a VIP in them.

    - The fix encourages roof camping.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Then leaaaave. The game was fine! Don't you understand, by bitching about having more issues we are prolonging the entrance of open beta.

    In addition, you need to realize:

    - You'll always have gamers that play like cowards and use exploits that they found and got good at.

    - There are more significant issues to worry about then some guy on a roof.

  125. @Krinj

    If you ask me it has never been a fix, but a fault from G1's side. Before car chases was really fun. Speeding around town just hoping for your apponent to make a slight mistake.. And the BAM, Car mesh.

    Please G1, UN-fix slow cars for VIP's.

  134. @Lugsey,

    Now you send that key to somefuckingguy@gmail.com. Nah..Could you imagine?!

    You'll have to wait till they activate the next wave, I don't think they accept keys anymore.

  135. Pretty sure my loading times are only 10 seconds max, and I'm not even playing this game on my SSD drive. Ya'll need to get some high end pc's. :P

    Pretty sure they do, a friend of mine just got his beta key and activated his account a few hours ago?

    ReplyDelete
  137. No, he got his account activated. He probably submitted his key a long time ago.

  144. I just said what the devs are saying. They just keep saying "OB is just around the corner", so no one knows when.

    I have a Core 2 Quad 4 Core processor on 2.8 GhZ now overclocked to 3.8 GhZ
    I have a GTX 570

    and additional 120 HrZ monitor + 3D vision kit
    so i do have a high end computer, i have kickass internet aswell

  146. @Gamers Last Honestly, reading your posts made me laugh my ass off. So much better seeing people get trolled on than reading "I WUNT IN OPEN BETA NOWZ PLOX." Well that AND reading broken ass English, because most of these people are from Russia or some other foreign country.

  147. New version of Punkbuster available, v2.271 ! Maybe it's gonna fix the problems of some peoples !

    ReplyDelete
  148. This is crasy. One week PB kicks me and then you put a patch out. Yay! it worked. Now, a week later you put another patch out. PB kicks me again :( please fix this. It says i do not have a certain pbcl file.

    ReplyDelete
  149. You have make the update with pbsetup ? Try uninstall and install again Punkbuster.

    ReplyDelete
  150. You might want to contact punkbuster, it's kicking the wrong people. Don't bother my ass none, my hacks are working just fine. In fact, I haven't been kicked by PB once. Nice anti-cheat! ;D

    Time for a blog update Bjorn, you sexy beast.

    Good last patch help ;) next thing to deal with is Haxors and lagers i thing best will be kick players who have average ping higer than 170 becouse worse pingers is hard to kill (in counter strike server kicks more than ping 80 ) then i thing 170 is to high but here RUS with 500 pings (some with more than 1000 becouse they teleporting xD ) ant that is mostly unplayable against RUS

  155. I really want to know when APB Reloaded goes Open Beta, or when G1 starts drawing out the people that has entered their email on the APB site... I hate how I missed the beta sign-ups. Fuck my life

  156. Everybody wants to know when OB starts and we only know that "it's just around the corner". Maybe in the next update they'll say.

    ReplyDelete
  157. @Symeth
    there still is ALOT of work to do to make this game alright for OB

    People stop rushing for OB or you'll get some bullshit out of it like the last 1.5 update which basically was unplayable...

    ReplyDelete
  158. @Rene
    I know mate. Was just trying to answer his question. In my opinion, there's no need to rush the OB, let them repair and patch things up.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Any of you guys still getting crashes?
    Since the latest patch, i didn't crash 1 time.

    Realy great work off the devs.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Nope, they fixed the crashing for me, and instead introduced two new issues, isn't it great?!

    @Rene,
    It doesn't matter when APB:R goes into open beta, the same issues will still be there, the devs will have to do the same thing, no matter what. Only now, without going into open beta, their simply just loosing players.

  169. @animebobble
    yep. still happens, but not quite often.
    Mostly im not even on a mission when it happens ^^.

    But can be funny when you are the driver for your group. Everyone thinks you are stupid xD.

    Got a question to that lagspikes to you people ^^:
    Does it happen for everyone at the same time? Or is it happening individual for everyone?

    ReplyDelete
  170. but why havent they fixed it long time ago? >_> they had over a month to fix it -.- i cannot play apb at all >_>

    ReplyDelete
  171. Dear Animebobble,

    I'm not sure where you are located, but for me, it is currently the weekend.I prefer not to work on the weekend. It's beta, you should be lucky they chose you to play. Submit a formal bug report if you want it fixed, don't bitch like a 15 year old drama school girl on the blog about how something needs to be fixed, it's a free to play god damnit, what are you expecting?

    Yeah I kid around a lot, but i noticed a lot of you are serious.

    No, I don't get lag spikes, and barely ever do I crash, because I don't have a welfare funded PC.

    ReplyDelete
  172. @Gamers Last
    but if they go into OB now the players that then join will be moaning about the not yet fixed stuff and leave also

    and because of the rushing I bet their'd be more crashes again...

    ReplyDelete
  173. They could wait six years to go into OB and people would still complain about the stuff not fixed yet. Ultima Online has been out for 14 years and they still have bugfix patches. There's no such thing as a bug-free program, no matter what your budget or processes.

    ReplyDelete
  174. I'd like to see you guys make a fucking game, it's not easy so stop bitching about it, their doing the best they can.

    If not, go make your own fucking game and have the community get down your throat

    ReplyDelete
  175. @ Poste above
    XD your name, thats an GUID right? :P

    A game would be boring if they release it without any error at the CBT already, If it is like that, they can earn an award lol.

    @syberghost
    ^^ you are right. No bugless games out there. Even single player games like GTA do still have bugs anywhere.

    Devs. pls go on working like that :D But you are quiet the last time...
    Maybe they are working on something important :D

    But today its Sunday. Noone wanna work on sunday xD
