# Stuttering, little freezing, choppy gameplay

Possible fix by updating Punkbuter here:
www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=support-apb.php

  • Uninstall Punbuster completly, reboot, and start the launcher to reinstall pb over the apb launcher.
  • Disabeling Voip - May also be done by closing VicoxVoiceServiceprogram in the tastk manager.
  • Disable Realtek Audio in your Bios.
  • Process Affinity - Set the process PnkBstrBprogram affinity to use core 0 only and APBprogram to use all cores but 0.
  • Disable the sound completly.
  • Buy a cheap USB Soundcard.

We are aware of the issues and a working hard to fix them, the problem is there are multiple types of GPF's, you're not all recieving the exact same error. We have some fixes in place and are currently testing them so it shouldn't be too long until we can deploy the fixes and you'll be able to play again.

# Pagefile memory leak issue

The way to do it is to replace the AssetCache folder in APBGame with a junction
WARNING if using a flash drive, you must leave the flash drive in the computer usb port at all times. if you take out the drive you may have to redo the entire process or risk your game crashing on load up.
If you accidentally click the wrong option too many times you may end up with a folder that is infinitely deep and therefore undeleteable in most systems., so if you think you made a mistake, double check before doing anything else.

EASY WAY:
Get: http://schinagl.priv...nkshellext.html
Close APB, go to your APBGame Folde and delete assetcahce (may need to be admin). Go to your secondary hard drive or plugged in flash drive and make an AssetCache folder. Rightclick on the folder and "Select Link Source", go back to APBGame, right click on any empty space and "Drop as Junction"

Flash drive unplugged fix:

Go to apbgame folder, right click unlink AssetCache, then delete if it remains.
This fix if done on at least a 7200 rpm drive that isnt in use or a flash drive makes the loading of custom avatars/cars much smoother.

Thanks to vivan

# Blurry textures on 32 bit Operating Systems.

  • Quit out of APB.
  • Start the APB launcher but not the game and let it do updates & checks if it needs to
  • navigated to your APB Install.
  • Navigated to \APBgame\Config
  • In here you should se a load of files with .ini extensions.
  • Cut and paste the following files out of this directory to a backup directory on your desktop or wheverver (just away from the APB game directory completely.
    APBCompat.ini
    APBCompat_APBLoginLevel.ini
    APBCompat_Dev.ini
    APBCompat_Dev_APBLoginLevel.ini
    APBCompat_Dev_FinancialDistrict.ini
    APBCompat_Dev_RWorldSocialDistrict.ini
    APBCompat_Dev_Studio.ini
    APBCompat_Dev_WaterfrontDistrict.ini
    APBCompat_FinancialDistrict.ini
    APBCompat_RWorldSocialDistrict.ini
    APBCompat_Studio.ini
    APBCompat_WaterfrontDistrict.ini
  • Start up APB and behold the glory of crisp textures on your dated 32Bit OS.
If you have less than 4gb of physical RAM you are going to have trouble with this, it also may be advisable to use one of the startup memory switches of which I am pretty sure I am using the 3gb one.

*I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR HARM YOU MAY DO TO YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU TRY THE FOLLOWING STEPS*

if you need to do the /3gb switch in Windows 7 32bit or Vista 32bit then simply:


Right-click Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVa 3072"
Restart Your computer.

If for some reason you have problems and want to undo this change then just:

Right-click on Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /deletevalue IncreaseUserVa"
Restart your computer.

For the advanced user you can try 4096 as your switch instead of 3072 but there may be stability issues so consider yourselves warned !

Freezing after a little time of gameplay

  • Start and play in window mode.
  • Read http://forums.gamersfirst.com/index.php?showtopic=165329
  • Explanation:
    By the way the freezing bug - as long as you start in windowed mode and wait about 10 minutes you can then alt+enter and go into full screen and you wont crash.


    The crash is somehow related to the in game VOIP and whenever the process gets run first (from some player using it as you run by) you'll crash if you aren't in windowed mode. Typically its okay after a few minutes to alt enter and you wont hard lock.

Thanks @ Galvius


Known Bugs about to be fixed:


Spawningissues:

I thought I'd pop in to give you guys an update on where our spawning system is. As you may have noticed, the 'improved' spawning system didn't quite work out, or rather it does when it works correctly. This, alas, is the cost of beta, and we've managed to find a few issues with the system by monitoring the system's behaviour, that we are currently working on fixes for.

The primary issues currently are as follows:

1) The spawn system doesn't take into account dead players new spawn points. If a player dies, the system will choose a spawn point for him based on various metrics. The system makes a hard choice not to spawn them near enemy players. This decision does not take into account nearby spawn points that a player is about to spawn at, so it is possible that players will spawn near each other in rapid succession (especially in areas at the map edges). By taking upcoming spawn points into account, we remove this issue (and also gain a win in the case where all players on a team die).

2) Spawn point choice is made at the point of death, rather than the point of fadeout. The fade to grey is to cover the streaming as the camera is moved to the new spawn location. We should (and will be) choosing a spawn point at this time.

3) Certain missions choose the wrong objectives. This is a straight up bug rather than an edge case. On certain mission types the system may choose to use the wrong stage's objective as a weighting, which is obviously bad. This naturally needs fixed.

4) Objective weighting was lower than an enemy player. This caused missions with solo players to spawn at maximum distance (as it attempts to get as far away from the enemy as possible). A fix for this should be getting pushed out soon.


We of course apologies for the rather inconsistent of the spawn system at present, and are working diligently to improve the scenario. Regardless we still think an intelligent approach is a lot better than simply choosing the closest spawn outside of a certain radius. Please bear with us as we get the system into the best possible shape.

# added high ping cause
# added freezing "window-mode-fix"-description

slow rendeing of walls read these posts:

Unfortunately, regardless of how amazing your system is it may not have an effect on this, as Eirin said this is an old issue and I personally have found that the longer you play it will become more noticable. With the amount that APB caches already (not certain about video memory usage during gameplay though) I wonder how much they can do to resolve or lessen this problem? Dependent on what CPU you have the problem can be more noticable.


This started happening to me after the KTTC event in RTW APB. After one of the patches it started getting worse.

I believe it has to do with CPU not communicating properly. But I must say that since I have been playing APB:R this has never happend to me where a wall takes more than 5s to load.

Possibly the PB issue is bottle-necking the system even more and making things stoooooopid.

Wish I could help. I found that when running a DOX driver 195.XX it increased my overall performance.

I am on a laptop P7350 OCd: 2.5Ghz/4GB/GTX 260M

Even with the PB lag though the walls still never dont load like it did before in RTW land.


i currently have this issue and tested bunch of things, lets see if we can solve it somehow

At first here is an explanation of Bjorn from apb reloaded blog about this bug:

---------------------------------
Actually we do tend to acknowledge a lot of these "non-crash" issues. The "invisible building" problem is often tracked back to a streaming-from-disk issue with specific machine configs (ie - running on a 4200 or 5400 RPM harddrive, and letting the processor run in speed step power saving mode and/or play on a laptop). But each case is of course different. But it means you seem to run in to an invisible wall when the server knows there is a building there, but the client has not yet streamed in the textures from disk into memory (and/or issues with virtual memory).

Due to the very individual nature of these issues, it is certainly a lower priority, but only until we have gotten the biggest bug offenders fixed, and at that point we turn our attention to figuring out lower performance issues as well!

So we are clearly tackling issues in order of priority, and from this side we have been able to sort though a large number of those issues.
---------------------------------

So ive been trying to fix these, lets see..

Ok, its not my hdd, ive black caviar 7200rpm...so ill forget about this point

Maybe its my cpu, core2duo@3.6ghz. Ive disabled in bios the cpu speedstep, eist c1e and similar powersavings, so the cpu is clocking 100% of the time at max and i can say it partially worked, i just launch the game after disabling all powersavings cpu options in bios and textures unbelievable load in less than a second... bad news are that next day i launch the game and textures where back on slow loading. i was like :??

Maybe is virtual memory..so i put it to 7gb manually and it seems bug still there...but ive to try tweaking this parameter more.

so...can it be my graphic card?? in old rtw apb i had an ATI and i never had any texture bug. Now i have a gtx 560ti, and every1 here seems to have nvidias.... i should try with different drivers or somethin


any more ideas????


I had this problem back in RTW. The issue for me wasn't just that I didn't have enough ram it was that the ram was just slow. I swapped it with some faster sticks and the problem immediately disappeared. Chances are you have this problem if you have a laptop because they generally ship with pretty terrible ram.
For comparison my Windows experience score for ram is currently 6.8 and my hdd is 5.9. Before the ram was sitting at a score around the hdd I believe or even lower.


Same issue, running a duo also.

I Run WD Raptor 10krpm HDD's so i doubt its that (I also get very little access during games)

I run 4gb RAM with fast timings as the desktop was built specifically for gaming.

I run a video card with a gigabyte of RAM on it.

I like others dont care so much that the textures arent there but I do care that I cannot see objects I am colliding with while driving (even if it was just a pink color I wouldn't care so long as I can see it)

Interestingly this does not seem to happen nearly as much when someone else is driving & I am passenger.





As a mod: If you have any problems, questions or need assistance i'm looking forward to your pm or a link to your thread.

I have the missing texture issue so I renamed the program file to Crysis. The launcher now, obviously, doesn't work anymore but I cant' start the game from the exe itself either. Any tips?

Hi Duker,

as mentioned before these links are from cb-forum where you may not have access to.

I try to summarize the most important posts up a bit for you. The sound stuttering problems are just a link to the search engine with the words "sounds issue" in it.

Kicked out of vehicle quotes out of cb-forum:

Reminder: This was actually also an issue in the old APB.


it still happens not 100% of the time and 'seems' to be random.


This is an old, annoying bug. :/ If I remember correctly, it happens whenever your group joins an in-progress scenario via a call for backup. If someone in your group was a passenger in your vehicle, they get ejected from the seat when your group merges with the temporary team. It'd be nice to see this fixed.


It also happens when a mission ends and non-group teammates from a call for back-up are removed from the team.


I havent done extensive testing on this issue yet but for now it seems to kick players excess of the 4 thats allowed for a "full group" as you get called in for the backup. I'll have to get back on the subject later when i've gotten around 20+ matches to see if its just my mind tricking me


The issue has to do with the "person" that is being dispatched.

Whoever is the group leader is the only one that won't ever get booted out of the car. Basically What happens is that everyone is switched groups from their current group to the new one (that is calling for backup). Since you cannot be in a car with another group, it kicks you from the car.

Fix: Add a small delay for how long someone can be in a car when you move groups to 1-2 seconds. The switch is fairly instant so it shouldn't be a huge problem.


That's all for now, i know there is no fix for this, but that are the usful posts i found.

glad to help you.

This is for crysis exe etc., have no more information for you but the guy got it work out so ask him and pm me how he managed to start it.

You may directly start it through the exe though, normally.

Which fix do you mean exactly?
Are logged in as admin?
Also make sure that the file is not protected from written over and you are in the right directory cause the file may be there several times.

Attention dudes!

I'm going to give this thread a complete "go-over" and will resort everything, fix links and make the description better to understand. Please provide new fixes or workarounds via PN (!) so I may add them in a few days. Also I would love to see some "Keyfacts" to known problems from users haveing access to the cb forum, out of the threads that are linked below the fixes. Alot of users would like to have this infos but have no access so it would be nice if some of you could sume them up a bit and pm them to me, too.

Also I would like to thank everyone helping me to collect all these things.

Lastly I want to ask all the ones providing fixes etc. to overthink the current state and maybe get a better order in which the steps are displayed and make it not that way that there is like a) one sentences :) one sentences c) 20 sentences.

So have an eye on this and keep pming me about everything that could be helpful.

This thread will also be translated into german some days after the renewal.

Thanks.

I seem to have a slight problem here. Everytime i try to change the config, the second i launch the launcher it patches it. It basicly changes what i edited even when i set the file to read only. Also i have the blurry textures on a 64 bit Windows 7 OS. Anyone knowing a fix for that?

If you launch the game directly instead of using the launcher, it will avoid this happening.
Just launch apb from the binaries folder.

You will still have to run the launcher whenever there is a game update, but this is a good temporary workaround for your problem :)

Thanks, i've applied these changes, with no change. Read somewhere that might be beacuse of the nvidia physics got a locked code or something like that. So basicly this threads solutions are so far useless sadly.. for some.
Which includes me :P

I think this thread go accidentally moved into the Bug Reports sub-forum when it was initially set up. I think this should be over in Technical Issues where we're trying to keep discussions like these.
Fix the Out of Memory Crash. We all know it's due to a memory leak / memory not getting cleared after a district switch.

Yes you'r right, WHO DID THIS?! Ò,ó ^^

I'm sorry the "update" on this thread takes forever but I'm not at home since a few weeks and gonna stay here for like one or two more weeks so this could take a while.
Also I recieved absolute no help as asked for so this will push back the update even more.

But it will be there... some time!
