if the engine update comes out, cool. if not, whatever.


the hype expired a long time ago, at least for me. It's not in my head when someone mentions APB anymore.

 

Then what is the point in even playing? Many APB vets still lurk these forums hoping to see any, and I mean ANY progress towards APBs development but there seems to be a massive void between real "updates".

 

I come here looking for an incentive to reinstall APB and spend money, not read vague posts with more broken promises.

 

SAD!

I played yesterday since two friends of mine asked. Before that, I honestly cant remember the last time I actually played the game.


For a game this niche and this old, G1's best bet is focusing in some way on the small community they have if they care about the long term. I usually only post on the forums when I'm bored away from my PC, but I def don't disagree with you either.

Why is no one asking about the Engine Update, has everyone just completely given up finally or what? 

 

"We are hoping for a PS4 release by Christmas!"

 

Yeah because I'm sure another release on console will be a big success, kek. Seriously though, is this game just completely dead in the water when it comes to PC?

They stated in a previous Blog Post, the PC Engine Update will come after the PS4 client is released and sorted.  So, we have to wait for that.

The reason nobody asked is because everyone besides you gets that once the PS4 release happens RP is going to roll out the engine upgrade as soon as possible.

Yeah because project transparency is totally outside the realm of game development? 

 

I play on WoW private servers (17 year old Polish kids running it) that have more transparency than G1 (a for profit company), everything in their core work (engine/scripts/networking) get detailed in weekly posts that are quite lengthy. 

 

All I'm asking for is some kind of actual interaction from the people who actually work on the game, like how hard is it to have one of the developers write a few paragraphs about what they worked on that week? 

 

The project management for G1, and in turn APB: Reloaded is a complete nightmare tbh, I can't even imagine working there.

 

Seriously though, I can't be the only one who is curious about what they are actually working on at G1?

You just get tired of having to ask and poke over and over again. 

Shouldn't have complained about the community being overly vocal - now the majority grew tired of voicing their concern and simply dgaf anymore.

 

Recently some of the most hardcore vets went silent and stopped playing regularly.

The majority that still clings to the game and logs in on a regular basis are the repeatedly "banned 'cus to gut fo' tha game" mommybags!

No mommy, small passion projects are virtually always more transparent.

 

Sure, knowing what they're doing might be nice, but it doesn't help, and quite frankly very few people will actually care to know what Joe RP Programmer was programming on Tuesday.

The development team and the IsVV/GM teams for Nostalrius are much larger than anything G1 has ever had to work with and they still are producing much more detailed blogposts than G1 ever has.

 

And you'd be surprised how far Joe from Programming's detailed blogposts would go for community morale and hype seeing as it would be proof that G1 is actually working on stuff and not just stringing us along for ARMAS goodies.

Sorry, even I had reached my limit. Just look at this mommy, the game didn't see a content or any other balance fixes for 3 years, the deadlines are pushed again and again and majority of posts are about overpriced Armas sales.

How would this be a good way of clearing their names? Why is clearing their name necessary?

 

If you know PlayerA got banned, and you see PlayerA is now playing, what do you expect? PlayerA snuck into the APB server room, hacked the servers, and unbanned himself?

 

No, obviously he got unbanned, thus clearing his name.

 

 

The only thing that can come of releasing the names is suspicion of the players from the community.

 

Jeeze you are angry.

 

Rumors. Assumptions. You play frequently enough that you should know why that is a concern. An official announcement stating there was a problem and that they have since been cleared would go a long ways towards mitigating that.

Lol! WoW Private servers. Can't actually do the boring raids and find leveling content too hard?

Plus, running a private server is nothing like game coding.

These guys have been branded as cheaters through Fairfight, and I think they deserve some sort of apology for getting their emails to support in their cases stonewalled. They deserve some compensation for the time they lost, and the humiliation they endured by the community for having their name broadcasted publicly.

I don't know if this account qualified under the 71 falsely banned players but it appears I was unbanned today as I could log in and continue until the district selection interface, but whenever I try to join a district I get kick for "FairFight: Account Banned" again and again. Could G1 please investigate this?

They need to have a roadmap and give daily updates on it. Every company should do it like that. This "it's done when it's done" mentality in the gaming industry these days is fackin bs.

Plus, running a private server is nothing like game coding.

 

Nostalrius was 1x rates, and core work can get pretty advanced, especially when you factor in lua fixes in cMaNGoS (or Ascent/Trinity if you're a different project). It is literally coding an engine for a game since its all built from the bottom up. Then you have networking infrastructure/node work, DB/Login work, implementation of scripts, connection instancing, etc.

 

There is a lot of elbow work that goes into running a private server, on par with what the devs at APB do when you have a project of that magnitude with that many people involved (20+ developers, IsVV/GM teams 20+).

 

All I'm saying is G1 should be doing at least the bare minimum and let us know what they are working on, Joe from Programming can take 15 minutes out of his Friday to write a couple paragraphs about what he and his team did that week, this is BASIC stuff.

Yeah because I'm sure another release on console will be a big success, kek. Seriously though, is this game just completely dead in the water when it comes to PC?

I'm just here waiting for balance changes. I've played a few time in the past couple weeks for the first time in months, but won't be again any time soon. Every time there is an HVR on the other team all urge to ever play this game just disappears. Last night I got forced to play waterfront and our last mission 3/4ths of the enemy team was using HVR and it made me realize just how terrible this game is when people abuse the terrible balance. Its actually really terrible, but whenever I play this game I'm happy and having a good time the entire time until there is an HVR. Then someone pulls out an HVR and I stop having fun and also get really unpleasant to play with for my friends I'm sure. Even when the engine upgrade comes out this game won't be playable for more than a few missions at a time if they don't nerf the HVR.

 

Edit: Its pretty sad to say, but the single biggest problem in the game for me at this point isn't the terrible performance, the cheaters, or anything else. The HVR is the single largest problem in the entire game, but they refuse to address it.

I agree that they should be publicly exonerated as cheaters, but Tiggs made it clear that that's not a priority of anyone at G1 after locking my thread on this subject.

Same.

 

If the Engine update delivers better FPS performance,

and we're getting a new clientside AC,

the only thing I could ask for are balance & anti-griefing patches.

how come manual bans don't get a chance to be unbanned? I don't get it since in every other game you only get perm banned for hacking. In apb you can get perm banned even if pb or ff didn't ban you? Lol

We have one small team working on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and PC Innova (yes that requires separate work from us too).   I'm trying to provide as much information as possible on what's going on while also maintaining our contractual obligations.  The Dev's job is to focus on what they're working on. When they want me to provide you with more information, it's posted to you.  There's a lot of elbow work that goes into doing what we're doing as well, it's work no matter how you look at it, but we've got more legal issues to contend with vs a private server.

This shouldn't happen anymore. I jumped the gun on posting, we had the ban removed on our side of things, but not on FairFight. It's all good now though.

They weren't all stonewalled. We worked closely with many of them to come to this determination.  :)
