So as many people know this game has a few problems and until they fix them we will have to use our own tricks and methods to make things work. If you have a solution to a problem not listed here please post it below and i will include it

I will also keep adding fixes to this post under any genre so the title may be abit missleading until i can figure out how to change it.

Latency

So i will post a few fixes that has removed lagg completely for me and hopefully for you aswell, if these fixes dont work and/or you want to include ur own post them as a responce.

For those with latency problems follow these 2 simple steps

1. Un-install a program called Pando media booster its a streaming program wich was installed with APB , you do not need this program and it slows down ur network

2. Download this latency fix and run the installed this fixed a simple protocol wich delays the responce you're computer gives the server

YES its legit, just dont try it on anything slower of dsl AND make sure your bandwith its not being owned by torrent or filesharing


example of how the protocol works

Before the fix

Server sendt packet, did you get it?

you're computer: ...

Server: sending you another packet. did you get it?

You're computer yes i got them both

Server: why didnt you respond?

you're computer: sorry im saving my bandwidth

After the fix

Server: sendt you a packet, did you get it?

You're computer: yes send the next one

Server: sendt you a packet, did you get it?

You're computer: Yup keep em coming

Patching

People had success copying the file manually then run repair from the launcher (click on Options), if you copied the file and the launcher still errors run the game manualy.

Reply what files you need and i will provide a link

Launcher

For People who having a issue getting launcher to work but it doesn't it just open and then closed it like nothing happens else.

Reason: The File is being in used on another program.
Solution: Log off your computer and relogin and go to My Computer > C:\PROGRAM FILES\GAMERSFIRST\APB RELOADED\Launcher\APBLauncer-tempprogram click on that and after that nothing will happen again like before, but then click on APBLauncherprogram and it will finally start patching etc. If this helps then I"m glad and if it doesn't then I'm sorry nothing else I can say..

Not confirmed

PROS: It sends packets without bundling together which reduces wait time
CONS: adds TINY bandwidth overhead

The change is NOTICEABLE, while my ping in /fps is not the same as a normal dos ping.

My oca all shots are delivered instantly, with a JG all pellets hit the wall at the same time. BEFORE the JG pellets would hit the wall at a different rate

Yeah I actually put that in the game faq a couple days ago suggesting to uninstall pando media booster.

Blizzard implemented a checkbox option to disable nagling in World of Warcraft patch 4.1 (referred to as 'network optimisation'). This only serves to disable nagling on data packets so that data packets can be sent to the server more frequently. Leatrix Latency Fix disables nagling on acknowledgement packets to force faster responses from the server, they're two different things and can be used together. This question has been answered in the FAQ too.

Does this still work, is it okay to use it? People might want to try it, considering current situation. Some decrease in latency is better than none.

Did it ever work? :)

The tweaks in question alter how TCP traffic is handled within Windows, this does not help with UDP traffic as used by APB's "game play".
