Basic tutorial by Kyle191:
The current Advanced APB launcher by USPStyle that is available as of today (December 17th,2014) will not be impacted by the changes with Custom Shaders - Actionable Starting January 1, 2015
Since we cannot post links to programs on the forums anyone that wants this will have to PM me here on the forums or post in this topic so I can send it to you sorry for the inconvenience.
Note:Bloom and Floating Point Render Targets would need to be enabled for shader crosshairs to work.
Click the arrow to goto handwashers post with more info and another way to get it!
Please place Advanced APB Launcher and Game Launcher In your APB Reloaded folder.
The APB Reloaded folder is the one with the APBGame, Binaries, Engine, and Launcher folders in it.
It's usually located in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\APB Reloaded
or with Steam:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\APB Reloaded
Once the file is place in the folder launch it.
The Start APB Updater button will run APBLauncher to update the game
Once updating APB is done you can close APBLauncher
The Advanced APB Settings button will open a page with 3 tabs that will allow you change various settings
Be sure to set your games resolution!
Once you have chosen your settings click Save. The settings page will close and the settings will be saved to APBCompat.ini and APBMachineOptions.ini.
Click Start APB and the launcher will start APB from the Binaries folder and close the Advanced APB Launcher.
The launcher will save whatever settings you have chosen so when the game needs to update just click the Advanced APB Settings button and then click Save the program will apply your settings to the game files again.
Inputting text or deleting the information in the input boxes will apply the default settings when you click Save
This is my first attempt at visual basic I hope you enjoy it since it took about 3 weeks for me to make
I had originally intended to release this on the 15th since it was my birthday so just consider this a belated birthday gift from me to the community!
