  1. Thank you @CookiePuss, that little very important missed detail explains a lot . Now I am in, from across the pond, I can report back that it is butter smooth.. sure I'm getting a tiny bit higher latency , but client info. after a 34minute session. client is stable, no red flags from os environment when installing launcher, game loaded in 100% no issues. even the main menu animation was smooth. cpu is not even seeing 20% usage - my system was using the cores better with the 64 version. system memory still hit 3.166.5mb , but never above 3.2GB no fps drops / spikes (rtx4080 hasnt got any issues with the game. Nv control panel is set to vysnc all apps with 60fps to match monitors.) very very rarely it drops to 54 fps but I think thats just render distance ? Ran the game in 4k & 2k at max settings , with and without "eye lash & AA" game was fine. tested gpu in "automatic" performance mode, and at "maximum" mode no issues. Gpu avg in "automatic" 24% usage. clocks not even hitting 1ghz. [max mode clocks at 2.76ghz game was no different from the auto mode) The new Engine/graphics tweaks minor but make a difference over all, ( I had to check the files to make sure i wasnt going mad.. .) also.. new sound design ?? is EPIC. I spent a good minute listening to a drain, and the contact voices at start of missions are great. although a little flat sounding... Overall Great step in the right direction
  2. Hello, Do we know if the OTW server is down at the moment? end of character creation / select server, EU is showing with a ping strength but an overlay box appears stating is down? NA is shown as not available. iv checked my end to make sure non of my apps is blocking the game. ?
  3. been awhile, hope all are well. I posted an update to the main thread post (page 1) This is my latest video if your interest. Thank you for your support.
  4. Good effort, your game video footage is actually very good , clear & using a good graphics setting. in my opinion you've over done it with the meme crap. yes memes can work in videos by they do need to relate and be correctly timed, to many and you lose the enthesis of the video, story, mission timeline etc. the difference of = am i watching an APBR video OR a Meme compilation ?? also try not to use licenced music in your videos, it is quickest way to block your videos in countries. so some people might not be able to view your video at all. sideliner from your video. Dont bother listening/Reading comments that dont help or are just negative. that simply just "shoot you down," its not creatively helpful or mentally healthy. Keep creative & just dont reply to them . Oh (added later) Some videos iv created in the past when I was learning to edit on a professional platform took me upto 9 or more hours, for a 30 minute video.. with one video having upto 300 cuts, multiple layers of visual and audio input. time spent is time learning, you edits will get quicker the more you do and push your self to learn the hot keys, technic and having the creativity to already know how you will edit the video before you even begin the edit or even finish the game your playing. Keep playing and creating content
  5. anyone is wondering if there is any issue with the Nv RTX 4080 FE , there is not. works as intended. I have been playing around testing some tweaks. I wont get into the full specifics on this post. the RTX4080 during my play tweaks was avg 20% pwr usage and 2500mhz+ clock not even breaking a sweat (as expected with this monster card) Below screens are all Vsync disabled, obviously with it enabled its 60fps solid with no stutters at both 4k and 2k. Anyone wondering why its not above 100fps I have it Frame capped in NvC at 100 as my monitors are 60hz and pointless, (Above) is 4k Full screen with ingame vsync off, (above) just seeing the difference and view distance. same settings . (above) game is running how i normaly play it at 2k (2560x1440) window mode on a 4k desktop. with vsync off Would be really nice to play around with the newer code/game on my setup .... @MattScott
  6. Gee I dont have any problems with any of my Computer setup or the game., runs a charm,. , think you have the wrong end of the stick or miss understood some of the conversation, discussion of my system / gpu was to try and help with with there Manufactured OC boost features If i remember rightly. and the difficulty's with RTX and 3k Series. Any way. Im glad others have found some help / answers with the thread.
  7. To make my system stable (not just gaming or gpu) , so being = Not over heating, Not Throttling the GPU, but also optimize Power usage for the rest of the system. So not for the game as such, the game would have random moments of needing alot of GPU, thus increase Power Draw. if your gpu says i want 100% power and a small bit more for nv Boost, then your at 102% this very quick request can make your PSU unstable or who system, But just dropping your Gpu down by 5% can help reduce the risk of this happing , in that situation the gpu will only demanding 97% say of its total ability theres no way of the gpu demanding more voltage then available and chocking its self. or causing voltage drops through the system. under volting can actually Aid thermals (lower thermal heat soak) and guarantees a set voltage for the gpu. and thus optimise longevity of performance over long periods of time instead of short bursts. so for what i do i know i can run my gpu under load of 90%+ for hours i think recently for 6/7 hours with out thermal throttling, voltage demand issues, or any performance drop. JaytwoCents did a nice video after admitting he was wrong about hitting everything to max, when he was shown undervolting and the gains you can get in terms of optimised performance over long periods of time. youl have to flick through his channel though as i cant remember what video it was Crunk good luck with W11, I personally wont be going near it but im interested to see how people get on, there will always be bugs in the first year of an os,. some say its great an others have reverted back, Yes Beta stuff is tuchy hents why its beta. . Anisotropy is just crud.
  8. Hey ElectroStingz. (apologies for the very late reply) A "small" amount of testing.. so first question . How I Start all scenarios/testing is to have everything stock be it gpu and os. but "stock" will never be the most efficient/optimised . for me when the card setup is completely stock and the NVc is stock (no profiles) i was having stability issues in game. so yes would play but card was not happy, game would crash. Second question. 2040 is a lot of the time its happy place (ingame, out of game desktop etc card is 210mhz clock so idle) . with a lot of special sauce tweeks. But to be precise if your interested. (but i wont share my secrets) how I have it setup with my system allows it be flexible with the system requirements, instead of just setting the gpu to be at max performance or heat soaking the hole time. so system bios setup, os setup and gpu setup is vital,. so if I'm video editing i have profiles set to get the most performance but stability out of it inline with the system/application demands. same as the profiles i create for games (note that not all games are the same/equal. your avag gamer will just install and play. but if you actually look at what hardware/software the games prefer you can get better performance/optimisation and reliability .) the big one is the gpu doesn't have any bottlenecks in terms of pci lanes, CPU and System Memory all 32gb of it nor its bank of SSD's . Really the only bottleneck is APB Running on a 7200RPM SataIII Hard Disk Drive but that said the game (for me) runs better on HDD rather then SSD. (strange but iv spent ours testing it) additionally like i covered in that video that i "under volt" my card from 100% continues pw to 90% if it was to be at max load. this actually has been proven by many PC builders and also mine, the card is alot happier especially between boost. means extra pwr is on the table if needed, additionally the cards power input "area" on pcb isnt being heat soaked by excess power draw, my system also has very good cooling. most of the time my card never actually cicles its fans even sitting around 50c . but iv put in an aggressive fan curve if it does peak. I think Stock out of EVGA my card is meant to boost clock to 1775 , Iv seen them OC to 2195. Any "pc" user that pays big money for good hardware that just installs a game and begins playing it might aswell get a console. Zero setup requirement,. but if you actually want to call your self a "PC Gamer" you will appreciate some games are made with amd in mind or nvidia, or whether they support cuda. physX or Msaa Hbo etc bla bla bla.. and you will take the time to configure an actualy profile for the game. not just hit the NVC "max performance" key like some Youtuber PC builders say you should do. hope that kinda helps.
  9. So just to clarify .. you original issue is that : (quote) So has this now been Fixed? your in the game and able to load the game and log in? Your new comment (quote) Is a separate issue now your in the game ?
  10. Hey @Gamingplayer2233 Not knowing if you have the game installed prior or not. Easy option is to do a new install. But if... I would try two things to try to problem solve this. 1) go to your installation location and locate the APB.exe (if installed) launch this direct. If the game launches then the launcher is the issue.. 2) if you do not have the game installed or the game loads directly and the launcher is the issue I would check your installation path has not been changed. if you previously had the drive letter changed or folder name retitled then the launcher may break. additionally file corruption can happen. try disconnecting your network connection. Load the launcher. Should load but will present offline. This would test if it's a firewall/av issue. you can completely rename the game installation folder. Reinstall the launcher to the drive location and before downloading installing the game you can copy the game files acros but not the launcher files.. although if a file is corrupt this would replicate the issue.
  11. If you do not genuinely know why ? and it does not state you have been banned. then Ticket via support channels. HERE
  12. So .. a few theories that can cause this issue. but they are not confirmed. Not in any particular order and this is not a guide. Read - Research - Solve 1) Playing on a - Modem/ 3g/4g Sim (cellular/antenna) network . Yes some modern games can play on these connections, APB to my knowledge will not, 2) router - Firewall/Nat configuration APB being old, will still rely on some old manual config to your router for "port forwarding" &/ Nat access. (normally modern routers can auto detect and do this for you, but some modern routers do not even know what APB is any more.. its 10+ years old. NetGear 3) OS firewall/ AM - AV software . - Drivers & supporting applications Including updates required to run the game in its stable state. including memory/drive access and connection. OS . this can become complicated. Makes sure your OS is up to date, you have the most recent copies of : Dxdiag VCredist Ntfw 4.+ AM - AV = Its become more common that some AM - AV will red flag or restrict file or hardware access to files of games. windows 10 defender is very good at doing this, dont disable the applications, just make sure you set them to allow files/access you trust. Drivers & Supporting Applications including updates = Games like other applications require updates, this is also true for EAC and graphics, sound card, and other drivers. 4) 3rd party software and arguments - EasyAnti Cheat or any other application that can cause an argument. 3RD party software is currently the single peace of S**** . Discord with its overlay & Screen hook, even Steam/ea/uplay with there own screen overlay / hooking .. if you run any screen capture software that can DXhook or even just running chrome with extensions.. these can all be seen by "anti cheat" software as a false negative in the drive to stop cheaters. Another example is "razor and its macro mouse drivers" will cause EAC to block it ..... macro mouse . 5) Try deleting a few files and verifying your game files. navigate to (i use steam, if you dont go to your apb game installation) -> \Steamapps\common\APB Reloaded\APBGame\Config <- Delete this folder and contents "Config" Then Reloaded the games original Launcher. (not the game directly) use the launcher window to then select "options & Repair" . once complete. close the launcher window. check your Am-AV applications for any issues. reloaded the launcher and play select to play the game..

    @lollllllllllllllllll I had another thought to this? if you haven't found a solution yet, have you looked into your Dx / Netframe work updates. Even if you are running the latest build of Windows 10 you may be missing key backend components , its worth checking the following VCRedist_ 32bit & 64Bit NetFramework 4.0+ (think we are on 4.8) - Depending on your os type. DirectX updater You can simply search google for these and get them freely from the Microsoft site. obviously only get the ones you require for your os 32/64. do not forget you may have to restart your system between updates. and especially before you re-install the game.
  14. Link content unavailable. Are you refereeing to "Social District - Vehicle Customisation hub? " or something else? Best way to get support is to break down your steps to Error as well as steps to temporary fix if one is viable. also in some kind of detail, ie name of "X" options your clicking on etc.
