    Here is even a much better totally unrelated idea: how about enabling EAC entirely?


    why derail?

    tbf, the original topic is pretty much a given.

    Btw I haven't seen a single cheater in Paladins. 

    surprising, when there are public cheats, with no "detected"-comments one google search away, lol.

    Logical solutions on the APB forums? Get out of here with that!

    it's illogical - since character names are usually used for whispering, reporting and other console commands.

    I  respect  that you are being loyal to LO. But  nothing to show other than some updates  that in a week you see a leap and next week you see that is reversed, this has been going on since the start when LO took over . The worst  idea behind launching  RIOT mode prior to release of EU  , the failure to balance weapons etc.

    There is no assumptions , I only believe in results and so far its mostly failures. 


    so how is this related to

    what about those false hopes lol

    which was obviously nonsense.


    i'm loyal to no one but they show gradual progress with the engine upgrade, which is what this thread was about.


    not about shotgun changes or anything.


    but if you wanna argue about that:

    reverting if something goes badly is now a bad thing? they tried something and learned their lessons. that's progress. not nothing.


    they employed a bunch of fixes (e.g. yukon) and released a bunch of content for joker and armas already - no reverts.


    plus - they had valid reasons for riot: content drought means no one is happy but first and foremost it got their developers good experience with the engine without messing up the main project, the engine upgrade.


    lo isn't perfect by any means. i'd wish for more too. but saying they are doing nothing or not making progress is plainly false.


    you got another very cool and funny gif for that?

    stay ignorant.

    what about those false hopes lol


    are you talking about... false promises? or false hopes? if you mean the former...

    do you mean the one time they said they wanted to have testers on it early 2019 and only delivered on that in the middle of 2019?

    g1 was the one saying q1(?) 2014, not lo lmao.


    besides - do you think they didn't/don't want to be done sooner but just push the launch back so they can continue earning less money?


    lo is "notoriously" rarely releasing dates or making promises since they are aware of what promises and not delivering on them do. you still having false hopes is your own damn fault then.


    like come on fam, they are doing whatever is in their might already because it's also in their best interest since they (very bold assumption here, please don't nail me down on this one) want to continue to exist as a company lmao

  4. engine go wrooooooom

    so jus update an releae === moar play


    in all seriousness:

    it's just not that easy, they've been releasing (pretty honest sounding) updates and actually have players testing it already (that also released a bunch of screenshots)

    Well, I mean it can run other games such AC Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Witcher 3 at reasonably high frame rates some on high, some on ultra settings so I'm expecting a 10 years old game with a shitload of configs and potato graphics to pull at least 120fps. Don't understand what could be wrong with CPU.

    it's a notebook cpu. rather low clockspeed - 2.4ghz - thus resulting in much worse performance than e.g. a desktop i3 of the same generation. that applies to both single- and multicore. having 4 cores doesn't alleviate this problem since apb is single core performance reliant. (except in the way that background tasks will not hinder the game as much)

    also thermal throttling would be a big issue because it's a notebook.

    others than that, being 10 years old and poorly optimised is exactly the issue. it's not made for this hardware, it's not optimised for this hardware.

    (witcher 3 also runs well on a potato, not a great benchmark.)

    i think it should be fine though?


    101fps used to be the old cap, even with configs iirc? hmm... might be an issue here? shouldn't be. just a thing to think about.


    anyway, not sure why you'd need over 100fps on a 60hz monitor. you don't get anything out of that, unless you disabled any form of synchronisation (which would be worth the very minor input lag you'd get when you're just having 60hz anyway)...


    no insight on how to fix it though, sorry. just wanted to shed some light on why your cpu is not GREAT but probably fine. (have you checked the load on your cores though?)

  6. volunteer, eh. gming is not my cup of tea anyway but... eh. this isn't spct or smth but full-on gm as volunteering...  i mean sure, when i was 16 i would've thought of this as cool but... nah.


    just because i actually have no clue: is it normal to have unpaid gms? the only time i've (knowingly) seen this was on very legit pservers for various games - might have obviously been the case somewhere else.

    Like...more cars? It's 2020 and this game still has like 10 or less cars...GTA:O used to get more per year

    "10 or less" lol

    i mean less than 10 reasonable to use, sure, but there's a bunch more. not comparable to gta - but same goes for their budget

    plus, i don't even think that's necessarily a good thing, i mean choices are cool but i couldn't keep track of all of my vehicles etc.

    plus, having 40 sports cars that basically perform the same and look similar... i'd rather have them focus on other stuff.

    I already have a few guns. But 1 gun for account lifetime is 20-30$. And that just seems a little over priced.

    3slot account lifetime is the most premium option. there are a bunch of cheaper options.


    there is no gun for 30$. even the most expensive is 24$ without any discounts.

    with premium the cost of a accbound primary is 19.20$ - without sales, without bulk discount when buying a bunch of g1c.

    maximum bulk discount reduces this price to 14.40$

    sale (40%) reduces this price to 14.40$

    bulk + sale 10.80$


    it's still not CHEAP for a few pixels but it's not expensive either if you can wait. if you can't wait, you pay a premium. like always. with any good.

    Have you ever worn actual Kevlar in real life? that @#%^ is heavy

    there's no way to run faster with that much dead weight in it.

    but kevlar is weak right now so pls give more health and more speed, you need to tank at least +1 shot from every weapon (including nhvr) and remove fragile and put the speed buff just in here


    (if you still can't tell, it was a joke, todesklinge literally wanted some ridiculous hp buff in the past though - not sure if exactly the one i mentioned, but pretty much (minus the speed buff obv))

    This post convinced me and changed my mind.


    Randomized city blocks like Special Forces: Team X when?



    Off Topic: How did so many trash games come out of the same devs that made Blacklight:Ret.

    very special forces indeed

  10. Hey, why are you guys arguing AGAINST the OP??? It's Todesklinge, the voice of reason, who has never been wrong or opening threads full of utter nonsense... and never admitting it. He's right. Always.


    We NEED randomized maps for randomized missions. Because games with randomized content are clearly superior and always much more fun than streamlined ones. Randomized landscapes are the way to go! Even the newest and best The Elder Scrolls (II: Daggerfall) has it! (Okay, this isn't randomized runtime but...)


    Not like it already takes ages to balance the current missions (that get selected at random every time you ready up), if they randomize every stage it will clearly get better. (I mean, yes, they could look at performance metrics or polls which stages are the worst - thing is, combinations of random stages and target locations can always lead to utter bs - and that's so easy to balance, especially for small teams.)


    This is what we need for APB. Very balanced, randomized maps. Because those make balancing easier. And automatically make the game more fun.

    We also need randomized loot and a gear leveling system. Also add 3 skilltrees. Do cellshaders. Add some king that takes thisngs so they become black and white. Maybe some weird insecty cult that acts like a big hive. How about the enforcers and criminals become one faction and get light (but also add a new enemy, darkness).

    What about horses??? Pets and housing system? Randomized houses! And add racing district with motorcycles. Randomized motorcycles (that can be houses).

    Add casino pls. With planes. And casinos in those planes. Military base where you can buy a hangar with your phone. But the content on the phone is randomized.


    Also please buff kevlar finally, you need to run FASTER and get MORE HP. Why would you use a mod that nerfs a part of you???


    Also better driving physics when the current issue is mostly having serversided driving -which sadly is the way to go since clientsided allows more abuse (see on-foot speedhacks, lagswitching in general) - which is impossible to fix. Surely, collisions suck here and there but the constant input-delay is arguably a far worse issue than flipping your car occasionally.

    It also makes physics easier if you have to redo everything current completely...

    i just feel like grinding joker tickets

    you can gain them more or less passively though


    good if legendaries are easier to earn for you - but i don't think that's a general statement - although you can earn them more or less passively too.


    when just playing missions, i'd pretty much like to believe that you can earn a 10k 3slot jt weapon easier than a 3m legendary (of which none has 3 slots or is outclassing contact/armas/joker weapons) - both are easier than 3-slot role rewards though. (or the 3slot contact ntecs)

    i feel like all joker ticket guns are not worth it.

    they are the same as armas guns and contact leases... sooo... are those not worth it either?

    i mean... the 10k jt grind is not even close to being as bad as the role level 15 grind


    (plus, was the fullquote of op needed here?)

  13. yeah maybe don't listen to random youtubers, especially if you are performing well as-is


    it's a pmg remesh/reskin/whatever

    soo... just use whatever in the third slot. if you are happy with the ammocount and how it plays overall, just slap 3ps3 on it, as general advice.


    otherwise, if you are obsessed with reloading after every kill, mp3... if you find yourself needing 1 or 2 more bullets a lot, consider em3, if you run out of ammo and don't resupply often, bandolier3... just fit it to your personal issues/playstyle


    like... in the end - the pmg is decent in midrange still - so why not ir3 and ms for the sake of it? (mostly joking but... ir3 isn't too bad)

    You guys are already on the Engine Upgrade.  PC is the only APB that isn't on some form of the engine upgrade and console development is being held back by that fact.  Their goal right now is to consolidate all the platforms so they are all running the same version of the engine so they only have to develop for one version.

    exactly, which is why they probably didn't release the newer contents on console yet. with the engine upgrade coming on pc, this content should also become available on consoles. (which is what he said)


    plus, they are supposed to also get performance upgrades...

    This makes me think that maybe the current staff + spct barely gather half of the district population when they need to test stuff like this...or at least if they are in a hurry and can't schedule with enough anticipation to get everyone on.

    i kinda doubt they grind out all roles/achievements to test them. i'd assume they "just" check if gameplay mechanics work correctly and bug free - maybe if the counter works - but not if it's easy or hard to achieve

    Free stuff that you actually gota earn that wont be put out on armas for those who dont wana play? Putting it on armas means those who want the stuff dont gota play, which means less pop to play against.

    yeah, especially those eu-f...ricks, force them to play on super high latency servers (unless they are up as planned. which hopefully will be the case but who knows.)


    i didn't even see anything about armas - i do hope it'll be on armas though.

  17. you'd see a thread about it.


    but no, nothing.

    (no, the "eu is up now" doesn't mean that.)


    if you are on about the new servers - 

    you'd see a noticeable decrease in ping.

    but here we are.


    what do you expect though? less than a week ago the servers didn't clear the customs yet. stuff takes time. sadly. i feel like this is pretty rushed and that the move should've only happened when it was smooth for EU too - since this is where most of the players are/were. however, the current delays are understandable if you've ever had to deal with customs.
