I agree and not agree with you on this, I mean we could help out the new players you know, it's going to feel different that the community will expand all of a sudden and there's going to be some difficulties but we will get the hang of it, this community went through a lot, I'm sure having more people won't hurt us.

 

Are we on the same forums here?

I'm a little worried for the idea of the console forums. This community is beyond toxic enough for pc players. Are we prepared for the influx of console supremecy debates to hit the war running?

 

/inb4 console forums only accessible by console browser (which will just get useragent cloned)


It'd take a big (Sequel-worthy?) overhaul, to render APB on Gemini (Multi-threaded rendering) and bring it up to spec. The way the game is rendered now...that's a huge job. Shedding light on APB's performance issues

Engine update... it is as real as to say "god exists".

If the engine update comes out at some point - remind me to hold you to this. Thanks mate.

Our current expectation is that the PC engine upgrade will go live either concurrent with, or just after the release of the Console games. I don't have specific dates for either at this time. Nearly all of our resources (man power) was moved over to working on one or the other (in some instances both). With the resource shifts that means D.A.M. and Crisp have been pushed out.

In the next week or so, we'll be making more changes to the forums to get ready for console players. New forums will be added for each specific console and we'll be looking out our current forums to see what we can remove/add.

I'll also be looking over the GM assisted trades and make some slight changes. Then we'll try to reintroduce it for a limited time over the next week or so.

=Dont be surprised if its going to be delayed, so we will cover our eventual fail with a "new" forum and a trading system that will remove times on other important tickets because we are lazy to create a trading system.

edgy/10. All jokes aside - I dunno what this has to do with God or the engine update being real, seeing as you don't believe in either one.

 

I'm gonna assume you don't believe in common sense, either, actually.

So God and/or the engine update do exist, but they are hard to prove? I don't understand what setting double standards for people who have a different belief system than yourself has to do with either of these possibilities, still..

 

But for the sake of simplicity: Okay.

I was talking about common sense. The other 2 are also hard to prove too.

Here is my believing order: common sense> god> engine update. Where the first one is the most, and the last one is the less.

Cool.

So if you don't believe God exists due to common sense being more realistic.. Why do you need to counsel people on what they are doing to "Sin" if you yourself don't believe in the concept of sin? Serious question.

After playing APB since the days of Realtime Worlds, I'm constantly annoyed with the progression if this game but actually sympathetic with the devs. They probably work for misanthropists who care about nothing other than money, not this game. I hope you're happy with my small amount of money, but much like many other players, I'm due to stop paying and move on.

If you will hold someone with their words is because you also believe in them, unless you are just molesting to get attention.

I thought Deep Silver had their own team working on the console version?

Not to speak on their behalf, but I would assume she means they (G1) will be hosting the servers for the consoles as well, and my thought was that may be part of her business in CA atm. Implementing the new servers would take some staff on G1's end to facilitate.

I can't wait for this to happen, I even bought 10 packs of pop corns for the next weeks, this is going to be fun.

 

 

only problem - there wont be an engine upgrade within the next weeks.

 

when you see the first ingame footage of action district then you know the upgrade is on an early alpha state - that means it will take at minimum 12-18 months until they release a live version ...

 

i know that no one believes me - just wait for the next blogpost ... they will delay it again (like they they did for the last 2 years) ... all that you have seen so far can be achieved by an experienced game developer within a half day of work ...

 

if they had anything - they would show it ... they would do anything to create a hype ...to keep people interested in their product .. but they dont and the only reason for that is : they dont have ANYTHING so far

I'm more exited about the Dedicated Automatic Matchmaking (referred to as D.A.M. by the staff, commonly known as the matchmaking update)

 

The Engine Update won't yeild much yet for PC users, maybe better performance.

Maybe.

 

and CRISP will make carebears of all of us.

Nothing wrong in being a carebear, but I like diversity, and that means people with a foul language too.

I guess that was the needed counteraction when the community is branded as more toxic than botulinum.

You're clearly not gonna exercise your right to common sense.. So have fun making baseless accusations.

Pretty sure TheWorkshop was in charge of that as the initial press release highlighted TheWorkshops experience in Console development while Deep Silver is in charge of getting the green light on the console releases and also the server infrastructure for the Console release.

G1 APB shut down in 2016 it is more realistic... If you trust for new engine you must be mad.... On the roadmap blog post they said, new MM in July.... Nothing.... Engine this summer... no way.. they made new Legendary RApTOR... Oh... Just take a look at servers... Since merged servers there are still random MS peaks up to 130ms serverclatency.... And last point take a look back to the 2012 population on patriot was 100% higher than nowadays merged Obeya/Patriot-Citadel.... It is going down every bad pointless patch...

 

I used to be totally against the idea of a russian developer taking over any game, let alone producing anything worthwhile. Which is evident by my physical cringing when SOE was bought out by daybreak. Purely because of developers such as Hammerpoint interactive (Or whatever they call themselves now. The WarZ/Infestation Survivor Stories) .. Then I learned about the home grown Derek Smart. THEN I started seeing all of the positive compliments of Innova.. Suffice to say, even rainbows being banned wouldn't stop me from playing Inovva APB if they became the north american providers.

 So pretty much, all is happening within the next what 2-3 months is a new car, and some new outfits and boring gun changes.

 

No new maps

no new missions

no weather system

no upgrade

no new visuals./ tracers

 

sigh. JC3 coming out, just saying. I'm going back on another break until Dec lol. or whenever you guys release the graphics, which my guess will be in dec lol. wasted premium again. oh well. peace

Tell your team that the console version should not be taking priority over PC. PC should always come first. WE should get the engine update first. NOT the gimped consoles.

 

Mark my words, if you put console first the engine update for PC WILL BE A DISASTER.

I think you fail to recognize the potential revenue streams they're gonna see from a successful console release.  Course, that hinges on the successful part.

 

I think it's a safe assumption that PC revenues are in decline due to a very unhappy player base; the faster buck will probably be from console deployment.  Of course, that is more of a gamble.

Wait wait wait... So, demanding compensation for PC gameplay outages means we're entitled little idiots.. But.. Demanding we get first slice from the console efforts is rewarded with a firm statement of marketing values... ?

I think you also fail to realize the decline consoles have taken in popularity. Ubisoft even indicated there's a large shift in their Q1 sales in favor of PC. (PC took up 23% of sales, second to PS4 at 27%, X1/Wii U fall behind last gen consoles). They might make a quick buck on PS4, but you also forget, this is a F2P game. Which has had mixed results on consoles.

I don't play consoles.  I am just trying to consider what THEY'RE considering.  They did commit to this project like 2 years ago and have some kind of contract with Deep Silver, so I feel like they're all-in here for console deployment.

 

I have felt, since the initial announcements that APB was being brought to consoles, that PC priority would drop significantly.  I guess we will see.

 

I expect Deep Silver will be doing their own extensive testing for the consoles, making an argument that PC users should be the guinea pigs first, irrelevant.
