This fix will let you turn texture caching back on (which you cant do in the standard video options/graphics options. Mainly im posting this so i dont have to explain this to all of my friends that need to fix the lag. So here we go.

Go to your Gamersfirst/APB reloaded/APBGame/Config folder, now look for the config file named APBMachineOptions (Make sure its the APBMachineOptions, not DefaultMachineOptions.) and add this to the bottom with a blank line between the stuff that is already there, and the new stuff.

bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerVehicleTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=true
bCompressNormalTextures=true

If you dont know, basically all this does is make it so you dont have to constantly 24/7 be reloading every texture over and over again.

Before I used this, turning my screen around caused HUGE drops in FPS.. and driving at full speed was almost impossible. This also makes combat easier because your PC can focus more on the bullets flying all over the place. I have tried what other people have suggested like turning off dynamic shadows and bloom in a config file, but that didnt help at all. Good luck everyone! (P.S. if you are enforcer i suggest not doing this so i can own you in game.)

EDIT - another poster said that after you run the launcher it resets the config file, so if you want to keep the changes to the config you have to run the game directly (the apb program to run the game directly is in the binaries folder). keep in mind that to download updates you will have to use the launcher.

and for the other people asking what it is suppose to look like....

[Options]
UIMagnification=0.0

[SystemSettings]
;DynamicShadows=True
;LightEnvironmentShadows=True
;AmbientOcclusion=True
;Bloom=True
;QualityBloom=True
;Distortion=True
;MaxAnisotropy=2
;bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=True
;bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=True
;ResX=1024
;ResY=768
VideoQuality=3

[IniVersion]
0=1307470280.000000

bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerVehicleTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=true
bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=true
bCompressNormalTextures=true

Another thing i have found that helps me (which is probably a personal problem) after i minimize the game and go back in, it makes me lag worse and worse every time. So i restart my computer when i want to play again.

    Meh, I think most peoples' stuttering is due to a memory leak, actually. I can play just fine when it's taking up 2 GB of RAM, but sometimes it moves on up to 2.4-2.5 GB and then things start stuttering insanely bad.

      maybe, all i know is once they turned off texture caching it made my lag almost unplayable. and everyone that has hardware lag, this always made a huge difference. of course if your computer runs this game just fine you wont notice anything. this is strictly for people that have bad hardware lag, if you get the choppyness that i got, this will help.

        Thanks for sharing this again, I was looking for it a week or so ago as I'd lost track of the post someone had made. Ever since they turned of the texture cache for x64 users my buddies FPS have suffered. I'm looking forward to making these changes this afternoon.

          I get killed all the time when I need to snap my mouse to look at someone flanking me. I'm experiencing the huge drop in fps if I don't slowly turn. Just wanted to thank you for posting this and I will try this out tonight.

          I don't have a horrible computer but it's not amazing either...

              So I tried this out last night and I wanted to report on this.

              I was messing around before I added in the code doing some missions and noticed my mouse seemed more choppy than usual when I turned more than 90 degrees. I said screw this and came back to this post. I added the code exactly the way the OP stated and connected to financial district.

              At first I didn't notice anything at first but then I started moving my mouse around once the map loaded a little more and my frames didn't drop! Hells yeah! So I equipped my stock OCA and Mac10 (I forget the gun name) and went to town.

              I'm more of a close up type killer. The more bullets I shoot, the happier I am. I got the drop on so many people and got hot streaks so many times last night all thanks to me not dropping frames when I turned.

              I also guided a couple of friends on how to do this and they did great last night!

              Here are my specs:

              AMD dual core 3.0ghz; EVGA 260gtx (didn't overclock last night); 8gb ddr2 ram; fresh reformat

                Actually, my game works much much better when everyone is set to false.

                  nice to know it worked for you redse7en!

                  and as for the one who said it decreased performance, i doubt that... texture caching i believe is used on a lot of games to reduce lag. but if it really did make it worse, im sorry to hear that.

                    hey, arnt these settings auto set back to default after u close and re-open your game?

                    due to the client or something of the sort?

                      yea you have to bypass the launcher by launching apb directly (or make a shortcut to it)

                      its located at programfiles(or whatever )GamersFirst\APB Reloaded\Binaries"

                      launcher resets the ini files, but you need to run the launcher if there is a patch.

                          9800GT 1GB
                          8GB RAM

                          I play at 1280x720
                          maxium setting but 1x instead of 16x

                              amazingly this reduced my preformance by 10fps (unless it was the last patch) but when i drove a fast car around it went up by 10-15fps. Strange thing this game.

                              Bump for the ones it worked for :)

                                  These settings relate to texture compression, not caching. Set to true, the game will ask your CPU to compress all of the textures to reduce RAM usage. For people on 32bit windows or with not much RAM, this is worthwhile doing. To anyone who has 64 bit windows and lots of RAM available, you are putting extra strain on your CPU and reducing image quality for no real reason.

                                  This is why G1 turned it off for 64 bit users, and on for 32 bit users.

                                    This makes sense.

                                            Meh, I think most peoples' stuttering is due to a memory leak, actually. I can play just fine when it's taking up 2 GB of RAM, but sometimes it moves on up to 2.4-2.5 GB and then things start stuttering insanely bad.


                                            There is no memory leak, all that RAM is being used up by the game due to ALL (even the very minor ones) the customizations.

                                            If this was a memory leak, you wouldn't even get the amount used up back when you shut the game down.

                                                        i tried every option ( solution) out there and nothing helped.
                                                        becuase multiple things cause this hardware lag as you call it.
                                                        you cant call it a solution but u should call it a option. the solution
                                                        is a fix that helps everybody out there with this issue.
                                                        anyway i respect the fact that ur trying to do something for us
                                                        its good to share things in order to get a solution.

                                                        i`m so tired of this with me so many people

Mainly im posting this so i dont have to explain this to all of my friends that need to fix the lag. So here we go.

                                                                      Go to your Gamersfirst/APB reloaded/APBGame/Config folder, now look for the config file named APBMachineOptions (Make sure its the APBMachineOptions, not DefaultMachineOptions.) and add this to the bottom with a blank line between the stuff that is already there, and the new stuff.

                                                                      bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=true
                                                                      bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerVehicleTextures=true
                                                                      bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=true
                                                                      bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=true
                                                                      bCompressNormalTextures=true

                                                                      If you dont know, basically all this does is make it so you dont have to constantly 24/7 be reloading every texture over and over again.

                                                                      Before I used this, turning my screen around caused HUGE drops in FPS.. and driving at full speed was almost impossible. This also makes combat easier because your PC can focus more on the bullets flying all over the place. I have tried what other people have suggested like turning off dynamic shadows and bloom in a config file, but that didnt help at all. Good luck everyone! (P.S. if you are enforcer i suggest not doing this so i can own you in game.)

Was having trouble with FPS stutter after last patch, which was to fix matchmaking. And indeed it did. What sucks is that new problems arise such as this. I don't remember if they did, but they need to let us know if they change things such as this.

                                                                              Thanks to the OP for posting this fixed my problem completely. Was playing fine before last patch and after the patch was constantly getting an fps drop randomly from 60fps - 40fps while looking up at the blue sky not moving. Was so frustrated reinstalled, repaired, set affinities to punkbuster allocated different cores between punkbuster and apbgameprogram, and a bunch of other crap. Nothing helped.

                                                                              Ran across this post, gave it a try, and instantly was fixed... Can finally kill people with my shotgun, before that lag pissed me off so bad. Was unloading 8 shells and not killing in CQB.....

                                                                              Thanks again. oh... and first post for me. That's how much I appreciated your help/post.

                                                                              And one last thing... This needs to be stickied or something, because previous people like me, who didn't have fps problems before the last patch, might benefit as much as I did from this quick .ini edit.
