  1. Would it not be more efficient to accept the details others have provided you directly from official statements until such time as the official word changes? Matt and the LO team does a much better job of informing the players of information far better than G1 so have some trust that they are doing what they can as quick as they can without burning themselves out and giving up. Will anyone else take on this game? I really don't want them to give up! Try and find something else to do with your time, take a deep breath and give them until a few more days. They'll probably have to get over the new years celebrations first.
  2. It's obvious you want to play and this is a significant frustration for you, but it is one of those things that (as others are pointing out) isn't likely to be 'fixed' any time soon. Maybe check back on the thread every 12 - 24 hours, or switch on notifications for it, and give it a day or two between requests for answers? I'm sure you would rather the staff spent time getting the issue sorted rather than scouring the forums for threads to respond to. They also deserve to spend time with family and friends during the holiday season...
  3. Actually, a single natural blink (not a wink style of intentional blink) is around 40 ms...
  4. Thank you for providing that. You said that it was no longer against the spirit of the game. That is not the impression I get when reading it. Of this I am aware. I was doing it to make a point, not directly compare the two topics. Just because an authority says they feel something is acceptable it doesn't mean everyone agrees. As I said; its different views. I feel it is morally low to use something like a monitor based crosshair in this (or any other PvP shooter) game... but I also said that I believe it doesn't help in this game anyway. I'm 100% likely to believe a person is using a trigger-bot rather than a monitor sight if I feel a situation was questionable.
  5. It might help your point if you provide a source for that. My current response is: It's not "morally low" to murder someone as the law says it is no longer against the spirit of survival... Different views and I'm not aiming to derail the thread.
  6. True, but it is 'morally low' at the very least ...not that is it* really helps in this game.
  7. There are good sections of the game that is client side, but a large amount is server side and (from my memory) if there is any conflict between client and server then server information is taken and client ignored. Just look at driving in a high lag moment. You think everything is fine, then you are told you didn't take that corner after all and you've been driving into this wall for the past two seconds. As to those scripts... NOPE. I've had that sort of moment happen in game but (due to what I said above) I don't immediately jump to them hacking. If you 100% feel like that is the only thing they could be doing then ignore them in the mission and take on their mates. Find enjoyment elsewhere by the time they are caught and ejected you'll have forgotten all about them. There are certainly people abusing all manor of things in this game, but there is very little seriously egregious stuff happening to any level like it used to. Anyone remember a certain Epic Goat? They weren't the only one by any means but I play far more games that I can easily put down to the opposition being veterans that just know what the hell they are doing than someone doing shady shit. No, it just means that you have played a lot of different things and you have some knowledge. Unless you either code hacks yourself or you code for APB then you don't know anything about how this game does anything and you're just making a guess. Maybe I let too much go, or maybe I'm right to put things down to surprisingly fortuitous lag spikes but my advice would be to take more deep breaths and look more for enjoyment than giving into the frustration. I'm not saying you aren't doing that already, it is good more for others reading this. When it comes to macros... that is a whole topic that I DO feel needs to be curtailed. Some people know exactly what they are doing and cover it as much as possible, others think that because a bit of software comes with their mouse/keyboard then it can/should legitimately be used in any game they want without any issue. Same sort of thing for monitors that have internal/software crosshairs. "Not my fault if you can't afford this, I bought it so I could use it. .... What do you mean it is against the rules? How will they know?"
  8. I don't think so as when it happens to me (fellow silver) I tend to get a mission opposition pretty quickly after they ditch the mission. The problem then is that I am frequently on my own at that point and get put against another silver... this equals no backup for either side and the mission quickly turns boring.
  9. Oh I agree, I was just pondering the situation. At the end of the day players need to pay for stuff for the game to continue, but we both know it isn't that simple. There is a funding that has to be provided at anything from a per month to a per year basis Fingers crossed that the servers can be funded for long enough that player investment picks up enough...
  10. It is starting to look like LO might not have the funding to keep the game going... This new data centre company seems like a bargain basement job that can't get their act together. I hope LO got a few benefits for the crap they are being put through here.
  11. That might be down to the companies involved with your package doing a standard job that they do every day as well as your country's postal service knowing exactly where to deliver it. It would also be down to you to know how to use the relatively part. Getting servers delivered and installed is a bit of a different task...
  12. They didn't have the time to because the contract on the old hosting was ending. It was either do it in a rush or wait much longer, probably about a year. This was detailed pretty clearly. It is quite possible that they weren't told the moment the equipment was flagged at customs. The details were probably sent to the hosting company/data centre, first and then relayed to LO. Customs takes its sweet time, then the hosting company don't want to say there is an issue so they hold off in the hopes it won't be more than a day or two, then LO gets the info and have to formulate a response. In companies there is usually a procedure to be followed before public statements are made. This takes time as well.
  13. I'm assuming you're going to do (or have done) the 'fix install' type of option?
  14. You could also try running the game borderless windowed. I do this and have only had the HUD go when switching characters. When running like this you only have to hit escape (or anything that gives you a mouse cursor back) and then you should be able to access the taskbar. I know it is a pain to keep using the mouse when a simple keyboard shortcut is much quicker, but with the way APB is right now it saves a lot of frustration. I'm not making excuses for LO - it needs fixing - but removing a frustration can only help while we wait.
