(updated) Sunday patch addressing crash issue and various fixes.

(updated post Saturday night)

We ran in to an unrelated issue with Punkbuster when trying to release the Crash patch tonight, so we have pushed off the patch until 9am Sunday morning PST. Patch 73 is now ready to go out Sunday. Happy Easter!

---------- (back to the original post) -------------

Around that time of yesterday's posting on the leased weapon debate (you can find that posting here: http://apbreloaded.blogspot.com/2011/04/next-35000-invites-going-out-and-giant.html since it has an interesting discussion about the way leased items work) we also realized that there were some serious issues with the current Thursday patch, and while we have not fixed ALL the issues, we are going to perform a Saturday release to roll out as many fixes as we have been able to address.  And keep in mind - this is STILL Closed Beta (though a much bigger one), and we expect to make a few more tweaks before going full Open Beta.

The team worked all day Friday and Saturday to fix these issues:

Release 1.5.0.73:

  • Fixed a client crash that occurred frequently in Financial, by the freeway near Veronika Lee.
  • Fixed corrupt vehicle wheels on deployed vehicles.
  • Fixed issue where players were not given rewards from completing witnessing missions
  • Fixed an issue where enforcers could receive tutorial part 2 twice.
  • Removed vehicle speed penalty for carrying open world loot stashes.
  • Arresting a Notoriety 5 Criminal now makes you Prestige 5.
  • Slightly reduced the impact of VIPs on vehicle speed.
  • Stabba CCG - Improved Accuracy, increased recoil.
  • Added small contact standing rewards for open world activities.
  • Reduced prices on most body customizations.
So on a total sidenote, there is an ongoing raging debate about LTL weapons (Less Than Lethal) used by enforcers to arrest criminals. So the CCG change should improve arresting capability for the CCG. I am sure LTL is a topic we will come back to.

And (this was in a previous post) US-East servers are NOT currently located on the East Coast (!). The reason was that it would cause a delay to bring them up there. However, as soon as the true East Coast servers are operational anyone on the US-East server will automagically switch over to that location (and should then see much lower latencies).

Cheers,

  1. Awesome. Keep up the good work. Definitely like some of the changes, though I disagree with a few.

    Quick suggestion: An added modifier for the "supply" line of things: Players would have the choice to use mobile supply, or, a modifier that would allow them to change their loadout upon death.

  3. Hi guys :) nice work on it.. i dont know if you know this, but there is a problem: everytime i try to go from social to another district i crash... and practically every 20th minute my game crashes.. randomly.. :) hope you are aware of it.. i dont know shit about coding, so cant blame you for the mistake :) just hope you will fix it... Have a good day G1.. remember to see family and stuff and not be geeks all the time ;)

    Cheers EzioDK

  4. @EzioDK - We are aware of the "district-switching" crash as well, and that fix will likely go out next week. Not sure everyone realizes that we log every crash on our side that gets submitted, so we fix them in order of frequency. And yes - thanks - occasionally a game development team in "crunch mode" will have a life. But during crunch the geek-focus and game-focus even on weekends is almost overwhelming. In particular for our UK development team that have been just astounding!

  9. hey i got a beta key in my email since feb 25th , i cant seem to be able to redeem the code?

    ReplyDelete
  10. i go to http://www.gamersfirst.com/apb-beta-application, put all the information in correctly and when i click the red complete button , nothing seems to happen?????

    ReplyDelete
  11. Bjorn i want to ask you something...can we log in as the old RTW's APB account with the old characters?

    ReplyDelete
  12. What about the mouse issues some people are experiencing?
    It's hard to aim/do anything properly with spastic mouse controls.
    Pretty game breaking if you ask me.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Again I didnt received the beta key I'll die here all fucking day searching beta keys, and so every day for 2 months and you said a hundred times open beta open beta open beta, but I am sick of this and say exactly when open beta comes out stop to speak to people open Beta is here

    ReplyDelete
  14. and nice work sry about that I'm angry

    ReplyDelete
  15. Whenever I try to log into the game I get the error code 8 which means I can't contact the login server. How do I resolve this? I tried the following:
    -reinstalling
    -disabling antivirus
    -disabling firewall
    -allowing the APB launcher to the exclusion list
    -running as administrator

    ReplyDelete
  16. @.Panic!

    You need to have a G1 account activated in the beta test to be able to log in.

    At this current moment, you are not able to retrieve your old RTW-APB characters, though in the somewhat near future there will be an option to reclaim them. Names will be on a first come first serve basis, and you will only retrieve your customization back, not vehicles / weapons / upgrades.

    ReplyDelete
  17. any chance you guys had a chance to look into why PB is using 25% cpu on a quad core rig @4ghz?

    ReplyDelete
  18. And why the colour in APB look buged?

    ReplyDelete
  19. When exactly will this update happen? And thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It would be super awesome if criminals got some sort of 5 star achievement like an enforcer arrest of a crim. Love that feature.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Bjorn / TechMech

    **** Disabled the fog! It draws too much FPS! Unplayable! ***

    ReplyDelete
  22. This game eats up my CPU, my GPU is only at 40% while my CPU is at 85% and I live in Oregon and I ping over 200!! unacceptable!

    ReplyDelete
  23. How about stuttering fix?havnt found it in this blog so i guess u didnt fixed it.but its kinda major issue since almost every1 having this annoying game freezes every 5-15 sec.

    there is a thread on the forum,no devs answers yet.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Where has the Body Paint option gone? :o

    ReplyDelete
  25. fyi your exmod "jayne" that got banned already by punkbuster is back on the eu server cheating aparently. :/

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Bjorn i have been realy patient, positive, and have been looking forward to the game but...

    Why the heck make a maximum of texture details for 32 bit users.. seriously it is up to people to decide for themself how smooth they wish to run the game i think its a huge failure.

    I was gonna get premium also because i loved the old APB but im not gonna pay for a shitty muddy game like that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Getting a huge roll-out of fixes like these on a 'holiday' weekend is nothing short of astounding. The Reloaded dev team REALLY doesn't get enough credit for the work they're doing.

    Stellar job as always. Keep it up, and this game will F-L-O-U-R-I-S-H!

  28. Give me my fracking beta invite already?!

  30. Why this update not yet in the game you posted couple hours and here it is 9 hours later

    ReplyDelete
  31. Time has no meaning to them I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Matchmaking! Horrible!.. Thank You!

    ReplyDelete
  33. IMPORTANT: Public (Open) Groups are broken. If I have a public group I can NOT kick someone. They immediately are logged back in (if they are LFG) if not they can manually log back in.

    We have several TK griefers join our groups and run off with objectives and TK us. The only way to stop it was to take off open group .. then he went to every other group until they were all private.


    Also, witnessing drop points are TOO CLOSE together. Witnessing runs are fun, but only if there is enough time to recover once the ENF kills you.

    My best Witnessing times was when I got away from the initial sneak attack and had time to get backup .. LEGENDARY>

    Suggestions:
    When they Witness you .. set a 10 second countdown when you are both still invincible. Also move the drop-off at least 600-800k away.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So..1.5 is live and there are STILL 32-bit constraints!
    I know it is off topic but wtf?

    ReplyDelete

  36. This other Justin scares me. Go away!

    Anyway, it's weird that I have lower latency in the West in West Server than the East in West server (get it?)

    Look into that. o.o

    ReplyDelete
  37. ever fix the crash report or ingame bug report that too doesnt work i let the crash report on over night and it never sends and in game i cant either ???

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yeah, that's odd. I think it's funny how they mentioned that this coming patch would be distributed this evening, yet it's midnight here and it hasn't been released. And bjornx hasn't said anything about it, difficulties?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, btw, if the Launcher doesn't automatically patch. Click Options (in the Launcher) then hit Repair...

    Otherwise it's a tease...testing out if client crashes atm.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Actually the patch is now ready to go live - but we are dealing with a Punkbuster issue (of all things). Once that's resolved we will patch. We hope it will happen overnight, and if not we will continue working on it until it has been fixed.

    ReplyDelete
  41. CCG NERF please, anyone who could shoot it before was accurate enough with it, it's just not powerful enough to be on par with any other weapon, on top of that it's difficult to arrest people in 1v2, 1v3,2v3,2v4, 3v3, 3v4, 4v4 and higher if the players dont suck (which most dont).

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you for the update. Yeah, I was just a little curious, Bjorn I actually had something to ask you. Can you shed any light on why some areas of the map won't render for a minute or so, is that a known issue?

    ReplyDelete
  43. everytime i play my game restart the pc

    ReplyDelete
  44. i just tried the game its awesome but my problem is that the game crashes in every 1 hour playing ,but sometimes it saves me from death :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ehm is it possible you guys could take a look at the "GENERAL PROTECTION FAULT" Issue? Couse it crashes my game every 5 min!

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Lucas - the patch in the blog (actually what the WHOLE post talks about) addresses the biggest of the GPF issues. We are still working to resolve an unrelated PunkBuster issue before we can launch the patch. After that additional patches will address more issues over the next few days.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I say patch one issue...and it might solve the other issue.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My only issue aside from those being addressed is NOTHING in my video options work, I can't read anything ingame because the font is too small due to my inability to resize UI scale and my graphics are dirt poor as if I am playing super mario: cops and robbers.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Bjorn , thank you very much for that update - I'am sure people take your time for granted - But seriously - You're really dedicated to this - Keep it up Bjorn, you are a true GamersFirst head! +10!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Will our current progress be saved in the final game ?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Bjorn.

    Have you guys yet dved into the issue of 10-40th second freezes. Everything freeze for about a sec and the sound sounds like an old school dial up modem when it happends. I am 100% sure it is not my hardware. I tried to submit an bug report but the bug reporter aint working properly, sadly.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ive had this freeze too , But I didn't wait 40 seconds though, does it help? Is it in the starter area?

    Sometimes this freeze happens in the intro movie and I quit playing the game now for an hour before you fixed this freeze.

    I need to force shutdown the computer to make it go away.

    Just like Håkon said.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think the stabba weapons is to good... Frist they stabb you and you cant do shit then they arrest you and you are stuck in like 30 sec. thats overpowered!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. and what does the criminals have that the enforcers dont have? (Talking abouts weopons)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Arresting a Notoriety 5 Criminal now makes you Prestige 5.

    WOW I CANT WAIT, IAM TOTALLY NOT REGRETTING SWITCHING FROM CRIM TO ENFOCER xD

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for the response Bjorn :) made my day

    So anyways, i just wanted to say that i really really love the way you have made APB:R. The originally state was horrible. but i have a few questions which i cant seem to understand. Will there only be leased weapons in this game? I dont think leased weapons is bad, but the opporotunity to buy a gun, is not bad neither. And how will the premium user thing be? paying for a month? or what is it

    All in all, a fantastic game you have made, and i want to thank all of GamersFirst and K2 Networks for bringing this game back! since i have spent probably about 200 € all in all on this game with RTW points and so on!

    Happy easter to you and your development team!

    Cheers

    Mark/EzioDK

  57. Please anyone. Will our current progress be in the final game ?

    ReplyDelete
  58. It was stated earlier that at some point the beta servers will be reset. I don't know if that has already happened, but I assumed that characters were going to be wiped before live hit.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Guys, yo all of you having problems with the game lagging and stuttering. First you should consider if you have an X3 processor. Second of all you should notice that the cpu is on a high load, consider getting a better one. If your gpu has low mem usage, that doesent say that it is powerful enough, that just says that it has a low mem usage. You can still have 1 gb mem on a crappy card (Consider updating that as well) Instead of thinking that stuttering is a game issue, think of it being you computer, cause i have 60 fps at all times with no freezes or stuttering. I would recommend an Ati HD6870 graphics card (for you people who have AMD) and an AMD CPU that is at least on 4 cores with 2.9Ghz stock. Thank you and have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  60. so 50k ppl playing this game right now and they all have to buy a new rig cuz ur not lagging?nice idea dude.

  62. Great.. I really was hoping on my old cars!!.. I dont care that i cant get my 40 guns back that seems logic.. But my cars.. come on.. whats the big problem of that.. I dont care giving money to the game but Ive allready gave a lot including buying the game, and right now I wont pay a damn.. Because of losing it all again.. I know more people who wont.. More fun with old cars = More chance to spend money..

    Greetings BWNL

  63. @Bjorn
    the crashproblem Ezio talked about
    really nees to be fixed - annoying to restart the game anytime you want to switch the district.

    And Yay got activated and hope to provide more useful feedback soon.

    Happy Easter Everyone

    Are you going to be looking into the memory leak(s)? It uses up to 1.1GB of extra RAM, it should run at 1.7GB-2GB yet the /fps overlay is saying 2.8 at some points. I check task manager and that's usually at 1.7-1.8 most of the time but it just continually increases on /fps.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey Bjorn,

    I'd like to know IF there will be a wipe from CB to OB.

    Is it possible to avoid one or just a clean sheet when going OB?

    Kind Regards,
    Niek van der Maaden

    ReplyDelete
  66. yeah can we get these servers back up please ? i only just downloaded the game FULLY and i have the access :(

    ReplyDelete
  67. Bug reporting and error reporting are both broken for me and my friends. Pass that note along so I can be a halfway decent beta tester. :(

    Also...HAPPY EASTER, DEVS! And if you're not Christian, it's okay, you can still celebrate. Walgreens will still have all the chocolate 50% off at midnight tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Anyone see launcher auto-patch yet?

    Just curious...going out anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  69. @Jill If you want to report from ingame, just open support sites, go to the forum from their and post the bug report there.

    Same from outta the game ;)



    Also I hope that the server are online again soon O_o

    ReplyDelete
  70. Server is offline ready for the patch in the next 30 mins - 1 hour, or didnt you read the update on this blog?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I cant connect to the server, is it patching right now?

    ReplyDelete
  72. will this mean less lag??? god i hope so... running with like 10fps in a firefight because the server cant take all the players in it at 1nce really sux

    also ur "witnessing" system sucks ASS

    they can "witness" you when they where NOWHERE near you AND when its been like 5-10 mins SENSE u did it

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi is the servers up couse i cant login ERROR 8

    ReplyDelete
  74. I can't either, that guys just giving out a false alarm it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Servers must be down still i also get "Error 8" and its 6 pm here so i hope its not down all night lol. I would also like to thank the team for the invite!!! I am really enjoying apb again and it is much more improved from when it was first released. keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Servers are already starting up.

    ReplyDelete
  77. @Niek
    where? only the patch was brought up
    but server's still are offline

    ReplyDelete
  78. Im getting error 8 too, but atleast we can download the patch.

    ReplyDelete
  79. When you login it will say that the servers will be online soon, meaning they're booting atm.

    ReplyDelete
  80. im taking the down time as a good way to DL some songs for importing to my playlist on APB :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. Client downloading at Satruday were slow (120-170 kb\sec), but this tiny patch downloads even slover and show 40 kb\sec most of time and drops to 0.8 kb\sec all the time (and show "Time left: >245 days" lol!) Maybe it's worth to add EU patch server.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I got it, but its still unplayed they say to way a few moments

    ReplyDelete
  83. I got the whole patch in about 25 seconds, that must suck for you EU guys, now if only the server was up...

    ReplyDelete
  84. I downloaded at fullspeed

    no problems O_o
    took only a few secs

    ReplyDelete
  85. EU here (Belgium) got patch in 5 seconds (60Mbps)
    No problems here :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. it do not sucks for us EU Gamers, because we are up to date @ APB R and still wating for the server startup

    ReplyDelete
  87. No issues here.
    Downloaded @ 35Mbit (took about 20 seconds) and I'm located in Belgium. That tiny place (stain) in Europe.
    Had a different issue. Game was running my CPU @ 90°C (i7 920 @ 2.67ghz) and GPU @ 100°C (GTX295).
    This is because it is a CPU & GPU intensive game (always was and should be understandable because of the number of players per server) But a quick dusting out of the computer and rotating my CPU fan by 90° adding the second CPU 120mm fan, it's now been running at CPU: 50°C and GPU: 80°C.
    But then again, it is about 27°C outside and I am sitting in a 35°C attic room :-)

    ReplyDelete
  88. GPU is fine at that temperature, unlike the CPU that's frying lol

    ReplyDelete
  89. Waiting for the sever to get up, No problems here.
    (The netherlands)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Yeah I know but it aint no more :-)
    Turns out I was an idiot installing my CPU heatsink as the fans where sucking up the hot air from my GPU :-D

    ReplyDelete
  91. I do have a problem when I try to submit crashes, it's the program with the RTW icon and it can't connect to the server to submit the crash. I guess they didn't update the server ip adress for crashes...

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hey Pieter, for a better cooldown for the I7 920
    , u better take Corsair H50 or H70.
    mfg

    ReplyDelete
  93. same issue here Pirlet.
    But then again, the crashes where caused by a overheating issue here.
    Haven't had any since the cleanup of my pc :-)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Alexander: Funny that you mention it but I ordered it on saturday (the H70) :-) Good tip though and would suggest it to a lot of players out there because I feel a lot of users are just suffering from heat issues because the game eats up your resources :-)

    ReplyDelete
  95. @Pieter,
    I have the same issue (since we're both from BE) with the temp,
    Room: 27.4°C
    PC Temp 32.3°C
    CPU temp: 46.2°C
    GPU temp: 56.5°C


    But I still get the crashes

    ReplyDelete
  100. BTW if anyone from Belgium is interested in joining the "Flikken" clan/group, lemme know :-)

    ReplyDelete
  101. @Pieter: I'm interested + are those megahalems?

    ReplyDelete
  102. @Pirlet: just one Megahalem but with two 120mm fans :-) Ok, I'm MrPiggy on err I think the Patriot server, I need to check when the game is back :-) The second server anyhow whichever one that is :-)

    ReplyDelete
  103. It is funny that in-game bug reporter has never worked. If I was running a beta thats the FIRST THING that would have been fixed.

    As it stands they only hear forum trolls .. In-Game reports are more accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  104. There are still some old (small but annoying bugs) from the very first APB.. and the most annoying is the ladder bug.. That really rages me whin in a hurry :P

    ReplyDelete
  105. @Michael
    It's because the in-game reporter was RTW's feature (like the Crash Report). I don't think G1 reconfigured it for G1 yet.

    Only a handful of players can actually remember this, myself included... however, I can only bet its a safe guess for the reason why. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  106. What about the resolution 1280x720 problem?! I could use it in the earlier patch, but now it isnt there anymore :T

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hi im french : So the game come back soon ...very soon (normaly)!
    And for the probleme PUNKBUSTER :
    I have disable with ALT CTRL SUP ...Processus...and STOP TunedUpUtiliti and Punkbuster service !
    And i can play easy ...No more punkbuster losing paquet 9003 9005 .... !!
    I wait for the sever fixed.
    IN fench :
    EN FRANCAIS :
    Pour le probleme PUNKBUSTER faite alt ctrl sup et allez dans processus et arretez le processus TunedUputilities ((si vous l'avez )) et + arreter processus PUNKBUSTER puis lancez le jeu .
    Pour moi no soucy .
    J'atends la mise a jour la , et en espera,t ne plus faire cette manip a chaque fois .
    Good game
    enjoy
    Bon jeu .....

    ReplyDelete
  108. @Psymind
    But 1280x768 is there! Surely you have 48 extra pixels lying around! x]

    My guess is that APB somehow isn't noticing that you are able to run at 1280x720...servers aren't up yet so maybe it will be addressed this time around.

    ReplyDelete
  109. @novaime:
    To translate just a bit more in detail:
    Ctrl+ALT+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Escape ==> Services ==> STOP PnkbstrA & PnkbstrB

    ReplyDelete
  110. Stop punkbuster is the most stupid thing to do, the game will just kick you for punkbuster service not responding.

    my god!!! this game just isnt compatible with pb hahahahahahah

    ReplyDelete
  127. Well - the patch fixed several of the issues. Doesn't mean there are not other issues we have to deal with over the next day.

    However there is a current bug which is that you CANNOT change districts without first exiting the game and coming back to the game again. We are investigating if it's a patch or server issue at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Also - the PB issue - easiest work-around, use the Control Panel to remove PB, reboot your machine, then on next patch the patcher will repair PB. Give that a try.

  129. Bjorn when im playing APB my computer crash and restart my OS as well.......this problem i didnt have it before with the old patch.......and i know is not my compute because my friend also have this problem

    ReplyDelete

    i could cry Q_Q

    oh boy *sneezze*...
    still... happy easter weekend for you guys :)

    and sry if im a lil bit enraged sometimes... its just all frustrating with the new games these days... they are just totaly incomplete and not playable online ^^

    P.S. I deinstalled it already and let it update twice again and doesnt help... at the beginning its like i could play 10 mins than i got kicked and when i log in again i get kicked again but under 2 mins :P

    and ure "error report" service doesnt work for me also ^^ or better "still" duno if thats my pc now... ill try something else now ^^

    keep goin ppl :D

    ReplyDelete
  131. Bjorn as you're responding to people's issues now I'd really like you to answer mine - Just once.

    So, when I enter APB my game freezes when I join the district. This isn't the regular crashes, my system actually freezes and I need to manually reboot my machine.


    Now to my question here; Is this actually going to be fixed or is it individually my problem to handle?


    Thanks in advance Bjorn, I'am glad you're taking care of the community.


    Best Regards,

    Konrad

  132. Heart blood
    Do you have your PC Tuneup aud?
    Because Tuneup have leads to loss Package
    PB is a common error.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Well, great job guys, you've made the game crash even more with this patch. I didn't know that is even possible.

    ReplyDelete
  134. ahm meister879

    yep i have tunup and everything and i put turbomode on and off tryed everything since i know tuneup cause some packed loss :S

    im trying 2 deinstall it and everything now lets see if that helps me out thx m8 for the info :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. what about weapons expiration dates? are there any plans to remove it? :(

    ReplyDelete
  136. one more thing. IS there any way to download 1.5 patch via link .. I uninstalled the game and now I have to download 3.8 Gb again :( please fix this issue (easy download)!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Crash again, every 10 minutes I got a crash T_T

    ReplyDelete
  138. ---------Packed loss FIX ---------

    ok... ok...

    m8be it helps someone out there with the same problem...

    PPL listen up!!!
    meister879 gave me the hint with tuneup...
    and there several programms which actualy love 2 clear ure ram etc from packages which slows the performence down!

    For me i can just say... IT WORKED
    Look out for programms which speed ure processes up by clearing ure ram and stuff!!!
    If u dissable those functions (in tuneup its called "live optimisation" hope its right?) it should not end in those 9003 and 9005 packed loss disconnects and kicks!


    *falls on my knees infront of Meister879*
    i known this because i had the damn same problem on mw2 -.- and i didnt thought about... sry ppl...

    i would marrie him ^^ but sry i have a gf xD

    hope it helps :)))

  161. FREZZING ISSUE FIX


    If you disable the Sound card in the control panel "Device manager" or something you can right click Realteak and choose "disable" , however , then you're without sound and have to use "USB headset" to have sound.


    Bjorn , I dont know if you're not reading the comments but we're up in 172 at the moment, can you please tell us if you're going to fix the SOUND Related FREEZE problem?

    ReplyDelete
  174. Why can't I log onto the forums? I only get a login error and it won't find my login details, I can log on to the gamersfirst website but not the gamersfirst forums :S

    Also, the crash reporter doesn't seem to work, it's sending data but never finish.

    ReplyDelete
  175. @DeadDuke
    I totally agree ^^ Whats the difference of being in the CBT with crashes between no CBT entry?

    Nothing right now. The rush showed those people, what happens :)

    And i also want to thank the whole APB Dev. Team and wanna wish them luck with the goings ^^

    ReplyDelete
  176. @DeadDuke
    I didn't rush for any update
    only for EU Server's so we can get invited.
    I would have played/tested 1.4 too.

  177. CRASH CRASH CRASH I CANT PLAY ANYMORE!

    ReplyDelete
  178. I don't understand, I've bought the original APB and even payed for gametime until it shut down. I signed up to Gamersfirst and received a closed beta application key, and in the blog it was stated that former members/customers who owned the original APB would have priority in entering the closed beta...! I still have no word from Gamersfirst or the guys at APB:Reloaded... is this normal?

    I live in France, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  179. i love the game but is already doomed to die thanks to cheaters

    ReplyDelete
  180. @ Robz,u lost...nothink really,nobody cant play anyways so dont worry if u think like u missed anythink,its better to not play than try to play start a mission and then get a game crash.play other games untill they fix it.and yea its kinda strange cuz i got an invite in 1st wave,even im not from US.
