Quick "version 130" update

Today we released patch 130 of the game. This intermediate patches fixes various minor items, but also further tightens security in the game. We expect 1000s of accounts will be banned as a result of this patch.

And again, surprisingly, why people PAY for game items and STILL cheat blows our minds. You will be caught (eventually), and what fun can that ever be?

Patch 130 resolves one of the 'rubberbanding' issues that was introduced in patch 123, though further testing is required for a permanent solution.

We are continuing to rapidly move toward the critical 1.5.4 version of the game, which introduces the first iteration of the new maps and game modes. Also 1.5.4 will also further tighten cheat resilience another notch.

Finally, the game will be in retail in North America in December. This means that the 'LIVE' version of the game will be scheduled to coincide with the retail release.

    The retail version is pretty much like a starter pack, it's a solid disc with the game + a bunch of bundled premium items.

    @Bjorn
    Any idea when we are receiving our Pioneer Amps?

  4. What Shane said. We could use online indicator, in launcher window for example.

    Other than this, I'm looking forward to those "1000s of bans" :D

  10. @techmech will there be be a roadmap posted with schedule of upcoming changes/updates ?

  11. @Sizzle - I think the word is 'aimbot.' Kind of sad since it seems you played the game for a few months. What made you do it, man?

    All I can say is, since hardware bans are not YET activated (they are coming very shortly) you can try to create a new account. Don't cheat and you will not be banned.

  12. You have blocked solely by hackers?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Loving all the hackers crying on the forums.

    Good work G1!

    ReplyDelete
  14. You did not answer the question. Was it only the hackers you have blocked?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Does this mean we will be required to purchase a Reloaded disk to continue playing? Cause I bought the original and I'm sure as hell not paying another 50 bucks to play a game thats not even worth that much.

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Sistem - no - you will NOT need a disk. The disc will contain unique items and premiums so you CAN buy it if you like those unique items - but you will not need it.

    @zzErozz - we banned a pile of cheaters. Not sure what your question means?

  17. I categorically deny that I am a hacker!! It's insulting! As I got to the list of hackers? I never used the hack, the more I play very rarely. And put a lot of money in the account, and all this was for nothing ... Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. game will stay f2p and you dont NEED to buy the retail box, its an option for people with low bw and so apb can be seen on retail stores. im gonna buy it for collection purpuses but if your already in the beta, you wont need it

    ReplyDelete
  19. Did you personally check my account for the presence of hacking tools. And then we block people. Excuse me for saying, but emotions are stretched to the limit ...

    ReplyDelete
  20. zzErozz they will ban anyone that behaves maliciously in the game, ie car part spoofers

    ReplyDelete
  21. I bought the car in ArmasMarketplace. Everything was legal! Put a lot of money in the account and all for nothing! The administration does not understand what I stress

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just want to prove that I was not involved in the various hackers, and then I played legally!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cheaters pay for items because the weapons are dirtcheap, everyone with a job can pay the few bucks for the 30 day lease easily and 30 days is basically the time until they get banned and/or until they take a break from the game. There is your answer Mr.Techmech.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Bjorn Thanks for the response! Hope it didn't sound impatient. Good luck and good job on the new anti-hack patch (from what I'm hearing at least)!

  25. @ Techmech

    Dude, believe me or not I have never used a hack in my life. The thing is that I logged into some hacker's account that left the game and just gave me the account (IRL friend).
    I thought nothing will happen if I do that, I didn't even play on it that much.
    I've been a premium user every month since I started playing, i used lots of armas weapons and lots of car kits.
    Why would I mess up an account like this by using hacks?
    To be honest, I don't really know who you are.. Owner of APB? :O
    Doesn't matter actually, I'd love you to take a look again at whatever made you think I hack.

  26. from the fastest release of tonight i not able to reach the end of a mission without have a crash

    Win 7 64 Bit

  27. Very nice update, I am very glad that APB team even in beta period is taking very seriously the hacking issue, there are many closet cheaters in the game.
    Another thing to add is the crash issue when loading district, it crash my whole computer, like a flick mixed with various colors and then i have to shut down the computer using the power supply switch or the power button 5 seconds pressed.
    It seems like an incompatibility problem with the latest beta Nvidia drivers 285.38 version released in september 26 for Battlefield 3.
    My PC specs:
    i5-2500, 6 GB ram Corsair Vengeance with timings X.M.P profile 1600Mhz and a video card GTX 280.

  28. Great work, Bjorn and team! I've played since RTW and been premium almost the whole time. I was so glad that a company picked up APB after its initial failure. Anyways, this thread has made me laugh a bit, and I'm thrilled that more hackers have been banned. Thanks for the continual effort to make this game even better!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I used aimbot, and I got banned. Am I sad? No. Did I deserve it? Yes.

    But before you say "haha, cheater owned", think of all the bitches I made cry themselves to sleep for the good month I have been multihacking.

    And you don't think we'll come back? Give us a week and you'll see us snapping again.

    There is no stopping cheats in FPS games.

    Legit players are ultimately the losers. I'll see you soon.

  30. has the issue been fixed where you go from marksmanship and crouching, and then switch weapons and try to run, but you just end up moving Super slow? really a problem for snipers and such.

  31. I don't feel mad in the least reading your comment, aaune. I only feel pity for you. I choose to have fun, no matter the outcome. It's just a game, and having fun with friends is what is important. Making 'bitches cry' makes you no better than a common bully. It's obvious to me that you will never go on to do great things in life with that kind of attitude

  37. @aaune

    let me take this moment to share with you my thoughts on your post.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I'm pretty sure with the measures G1 is presently taking, your claim of returning is close to zero.

    so as you TRY to log on or create a new account and have your efforts fail, know this:

    every time you get denied, I'm laughing at you lol

    If you want to go wasting your time and money on aimbots souly to piss others off, get banned and start all over again, you go for it buddy.

  40. I didn't see the question asked so I will ask it myself.

    When Retail comes out will us BETA guy's have to start our chars over again?
    All that we have paid for items is that going to go away?
    Our Ranks, Rep all gone?

    I would really hope not seeing how a lot of people have paid in quite a bit and more so than the Retail game will cost to purchase in fact..

    Just food for thought...
