hmm, so I managed to get my APB to not run at all in my quest for ultimate FPS. I think some options need to be disabled.

I've had a car glitch out like mad, a packer ceresco took some damage and a mommyload of polies were sticking out a few meters..

Some options should be removed from the program indeed..

Another suggestion: Can you read individual character settings and give us an option to unify them? It's really bothersome to manually re-create every setting for every avatar.

Reserving this post for stuff that I find just should not be messed with at any cost

1. dynamic light: cause black characters when disabled

2. compress other textures: causing massive crashing whenever people customization load when enabled

You might try uploading a text file with the download link included inside, you might also include a virustotal.com scan of the excutable and encourage people to scan it to ensure it's safety. I know for sure this would be 100% acceptable bypass to this rule, it removes any liability on the forums, you may also include a disclaimer in the text file as well.

max particle world space setting can lower or near disable blood particle impacts and wall impacts, some various other particles, but it will not help with explosions... floating target render option just hides post process, explosions still effect the fps the same way with them enabled.

regarding people asking for features to be disabled, I propose a description be added to each feature with an advanced mode option so people don't enable or disable visually crippling settings.

i believe this should improve game fps since it has option to lower graphics or disable some things wanna try it

You know what, this is actually really cool. I wouldn't mind a PM ;)

Dude I remember back in the day when you had me trying out your first shader! Nice to see you've come such a long way!
Also, PM me XD

Sent and I member!

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

Sent! It is! PCF Shadows - This setting controls a form of soft shadow rendering called Branching PCF. If set to False, it results in the removal of soft filtered/smudged edges for shadows, which in turn may increase performance but can also make shadows seem more blocky.

Can i get it in a PM, please?

Unfortunately no since character settings are in a folder based on character number

nice work

suggestions:
deletect if client is fully updated and modify the position of start launcher or start apb

add predone profiles (perfomance/lowqual) as well as shareable profiles and pasteable ones

add the hold to crouch, always sprint to it



ps: dont attemp to post any links that link to the exe.. some dass admin will just delete the whole post like they done in the past. just make a steam group with the links inside of it

To whom it may concern:

Spoiler


If you want to download the launcher, follow the link to pastebin, go to the drop box link for the direct download for the launcher, it is and will always be the most recent version as the link does not change when the launcher has been updated.

Patebin indirect launcher download link:

http://pastebin.com/yWbdswws

It's a lot simpler than it looks, use your brain and follow the instruction's I've provided to download the launcher.

now u just need profiles, nice work

Needs a lot more than just that lol :)

Hello, I believe this is sufficient to be considered an indirect link to download Advanced APB Launcher.

I have uploaded a text document containing a link to download the launcher, this text document also includes a virustotal.com scan and a non-liability agreement, to be perfectly clear the user has to copy the link from inside the text file and paste it to their browser to download the file should they choose to, thus illuminating any liability to the forum.

I should mention the files screen fully clean 0/47 detection ratio on virus total.

If this isn't good enough for the moderators/admins tough mommy, you're stifling innovation and you will be left on the side of the road of innovation.

Link to text file to link to download Advanced APB Launcher:


Thanks however if a mod finds this against the rules they may remove this.

Obviously, though it's pretty much fool proof in terms of "direct links to exectuables", this is made invalid for several reasons, one is it's a link to a text file that has a link inside it, the link in that text file links to a .ZIP file which needs to be unpacked before the executable can even be accessed... That's about as indirect as it gets.

or you could scroll up and click my indirect pastebin link or download the text file to download the zip file to extract the zip file to access the executable file. :troll_face:

Is this reading the actual config of your APBCompat.ini or is just saving apart to then replace?
My manual edits doesn't reflects in the launcher.

By the way is there any chance you can make a uber version of your APB High Quality compat?
A max out of EVERYTHING.

No it doesnt read the APBCompat.ini the file has the defaults set on first load and then any settings you change or make will write to APBCompat.ini and APBMachineOptions.ini. What manual edits are you doing?

The high quality compat should be able to be done in the launcher.

Some Cull and LOD distances, not to mention the edits you did in your High Quality Compat.
I can't get the same results by using your launcher, I need to replace the Compat with yours and then manually edit.

Oh! By the way... Do you know anyway to add a blur effect through the shaders? I tried using the MotionBlurShader.usf but looks the same to me, besides I barely know how to edit the APB Post Process Shader with common knowledge.

This looks fantastic, but I'll have to wait.for the hover over text descriptions, as I'm worse than illiterate at this stuff. The following question will probably reveal how illiterate.
Will this mess with dreamss'/Kimiko's crosshair shaders?

This will not mess with any files in the Shaders folder this will only change APBCompat.ini and APBMachineOptions.ini in the config folder.
