  1. If you do not genuinely know why ? and it does not state you have been banned. then Ticket via support channels. HERE
  2. 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.
  4. 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.

    Different "servers" ie US / EU / Others etc will run differently. I also think the map is different on the US servers. Just how it is.
  6. you don't need ADVL to do full screen window, (full screen borderless) that's two separate things. if anything try the in game vanilla full screen borderless and if no luck then ADVL. But ay .
  7. @FakeBungo Ah so you are refrencing US servers. to my knowledge they are not the most stable, with a lot of factors at play when it comes to "lag" connection stability, this is down to which state/area you are in, type of connection to the "net" and also provider you are with,.. also factor in time of day/night area usage etc. then take into play, applications you are running , like using apb vivox is horrible ( i personally kill this task once in the game) disable ingame music share aswel . running chrome or any browser in the background , or even discord really will all hit your "bandwidth". iv seen people complain about lag and after a lonnnnnngg discussion they are streaming music with spotify or some crap whilst gaming like really. also take into consideration some ISP routers are horrible to game with, especial over wireless. some ISP also proactively limit bandwidth to customers with high usage to gaming IP's during peak times or even just out right if your on a low value package. ( pay a premium you get full access kinda thing) all under "fair usage" In terms of game stability and "Frames" most people do reduce the quality of there game, so turning of AA off, and world details etc. keeping res med to high. this will improve your frames and should reduce the "amount of frames dropped" due to a "spike" so there is no clear cut resolve to server side connection/stability i know Little Orbit have been working hard with data centres who host the servers to upgrade.
  8. @DeNozzo check your os defender or av/am security software could be a false negative on a game update file,. normally files accessing memory or files tied to os dx core files are limited by av/am . updater files can also get blocked/limited access and not correctly update the game. this would also be the case for somone suffering from delayed kick. were the game is loaded but as an asset file is requested it causes the game to crash. @FakeBungo youv listed a tone of mixed issues. im not going to go through each individual one. some can easier be fixed though. also done a big piece on fps and aa how to setup the game up for "ultra mode" with high res. LO didn't necessarily ban custom configs, unfortunately people were abusing the abilities of custom configs to gain an advance with out detection, thus it was a required measure. another example of "sensible people get punished because of D********" but thats life.

    sounds like it could be an os/av block . check your os defender or av/am software to make sure its not a false negative with a game update. happens a lot.
  10. Hi @SkySmashify with a lack of details this would be very difficult to help you with, however.. a simple option is available. Open your games "installation directory" and navigate to the Config folder. For Example : Directory :\Steam\Steamapps\common\APB Reloaded\APBGame\Config Then select the following files and delete them, APBEdutirserSettings.ini APBGEngine.ini APBGame.ini APBinput.ini Load the game launcher, and click on options / repair, the game will then scan your installation and replace the above files with "vanilla" files (unmodified default files). this should get you back into the game, were you can then begin changing resolution and graphics options again.
  11. Hey no worries @redzero35 So isp routers can be really stupid. and are normally setup to a "default non techy user way" [5ghz routers are very smart and big bucks, and still considered elite too, if you got one through isp thats pritty kl] . it is good to log into it and change the admin password from time to time, also you should always log in from time to time to check it is updating its firmware. So APB being old and like other games relies on "medium to open nat" (take a sec to have a read of this link will help explain it kinda well) [as a dyslexic reading is boring but that read will help in future ] If you ever play Cod Mw2 or other titles youd see "strict nat" , "medium nat" or "open Nat" now open nat isnt a good thing, but a quick read up and learning how to portforwarding and DMZ will go a mile. Newer games + newer routers like Netgear ones (although horrificly unsecure) they are smart and have a nat library, so when it spots say "warzone" traffic it will pre define nat settings for that traffic,. APB is old school so this doesnt happen, - including isp routers. so you simply need to define your routers rules . Please dont just wack Nat to open tho. be a bad day . Id imagen when your through your phone the first set of connections do not get stopped, and if you transition back to local netwrok by this point what ever your router was stopping is no longer being connected/sent-recieved. All the best,.
  12. Need either a) Actual detailed description of "error" , how it started, what was stated (error code or text) and what happened after. b) a repeat process , doing the same steps that got you to the error c) screen grab of the error message or what you seen on your screen at point of error.
  13. So @redzero35 So id like to just state im not being moody in what im about to type. you have "trouble shooted" your own question. issue is router in my book. 5ghz is the wireless frequence, you stated your pc is connected by ethernet . and More importantly at NO POINT did you state in your first post you were connected by ethernet or that your router is via Fibre. so to say you "said" is void my friend. its always good to clarify your setup first so a good picture and level of understanding is there first from the go, Glad that is cleared up. SO back to your issue. and i can say your computer wouldn't be using the 5ghz if connected via ethernet based on the new information to hand, id say your router is probably a very expensive and smart router, thus it will probably have a very clever firewall or smart 2 layer firewall plus extra features you may have to log into it and enable nat/port forwarding for apb. newer games dont really need it but apb is 10+ years old. additionaly your routers "security features" maybe negatively listing APB ip/connection, check any logs for flags or issues. Additional Bits to think about, Newer 1/2.5/5 & 10Gb ethernet connections have multiple ways to communicate and distribute data, so if your having general connection issues between pc and router this could be a reason (search: duplex) also with Wifi, again if you are having general issues 5ghz is not really backwards compatible with older tech or even some motherboards built in wifi acc. why 2.4 may be working better for you, so i would consider going back to your router manual and pc manuals including sites to make sure they are compatible, additionally check your frequencies and local frequency usage to make sure youv not got conflicts, In terms of a Game or application not working over a type of connection is non excitant, games and apps dont really have any say or control of the actual "type of connection" that is down to the OS and Hardware, ( think of it like trying to transfer 2 litres of water down different diameters of pipe or bucket on string, you can but its how) only point apps have issues is if the connection is unstable / slow. but again that wouldnt put the app/game at fault. Best of luck my friend .
  14. Hi redzero35, I strongly disagree with cowhorseman as I have a very new system and have it running in what I'd class as ultra mode on an RTX3070. It does how ever come down to knowing/understanding your computer system and making some simple tweaks for the games running environment. Your issue is not down to your computer specs "if" you are talking about "5g mobile broadband" (internet via 5g dongle devices similar to mobile phones) this has been covered before in a thread. 5g or any form of home broadband that is using mobile cellular masks is very unreliable for gaming, this is due to "reconnects" 1 mask may drop you and another will have to reconnect you. Most 5g devices will require the IP to be refreshed and change. When this happens APB like most games will kick you form session. You can but doubt you will succeed request a "static" IP from your 5g provider. They will either ignore you or laugh. Or worst case charge you more.
  15. Apologies for this being late here, busy weekend working. Enjoy all
  16. just some entertainment for you, little clips I make for fun.
