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!

Thanks Handwasher!

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 smile.gif
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!

Things I still need to do:
Add a Default Button DONE!!!
Add Hover Text Over Options! DONE!!!
Maybe Add a Preset Configs Option DONE!!!
Add Always Sprint Option
Add Remove Mouse Acceleration Option
Add Crouch Hold Option
Hopefully Add a Server Status DONE!!!
Add Update Link
Add Anti-Aliasing and Anistropic Filtering Options
Add MaxAnisotropy & Anisotropy settings.
Add Exporting and Importing Options

Credit Goes to Satheesh for his Tutorial that made this possible and his Game Launcher.dll
Thanks to Dreamss for server status
Thanks to Devintian for the graphic
Thanks to Handwasher for risking his forum account and for his ParticleMaxWorldSpaceArea Info
Thanks to Kyle191 for an installation tutorial on imgur!

EDIT 1: Gave credit where credit is due smile.gif

EDIT 2: Fixed an error with LC Driver LOD distance It was writing an extra line in the compat. If you already have the download link you can re-download the file for the updated version

EDIT 3: Updated program with tooltips!

EDIT 4: Updated to work with 1.12.0 Please download the new copy if you already have the link!

EDIT 5: Program now allows you to change in game language.

EDIT 6: Update 1.12.1.6

EDIT 7: Update 1.12.2.1

EDIT 8: Update 1.12.2.2

EDIT 9: Update 1.13.5.0

Can "Texture" and "Other" tab actually fix somebody's FPS problems?

Not yet :(

It can increase FPS but there are a lot of things like running background programs and services that can degrade FPS so YMMV

Hm, you should put that on your to do list. Very high up there, I think.


Keep up the good work!

The program does not read current settings unfortunately so it will overwrite when you hit the save button.

Edit: sent link to the program!

BOSS! Link please!
By the way... Your priority now should be the hover text option. There are some obvious options but for example, what the hell is Branching PCF Shadows?

Thanks! :P
