  1. Your own words, all I'm saying is that any RTX 3000 series card that doesn't work from the factory and requires the user to underclock or mess around with the power limit to get the game stable is faulty.
  2. Not sure if you played the game but I had to use the font so that the phrase below makes sense. "In San Paro style is everything"? This is quote related to Cyberpunk. The fact that APB is still far beyond the customisation levels offered in a modern game such as Cyberpunk where, "In Nightcity style is everything", is my inspirational input to the APB devs and community. It's a play on words which maybe now makes more sense to you / everyone else
  3. I'm going to give my honest answer to your problems based on everything you have mentioned. You had an unstable setup to begin with which is the reason why APB was crashing for you. By underclocking and exerpeimenting you have made your system stable but the fact of the matter is APB was not the cause of the crashes. You cannot run at default manuafurer settings but then when underclocking and tweaking can run APB proves this to be true, The game remained exactly the same except now your hardware is under less stress and therefore not crashing. Also what you mention above about a power supply becoming unstable is only true if the power supply is unable to cope with the load in the first place. Voltage drops are the result of over stressed components (or a poorly designed PSU) and would not happen in a system that was capable. Heat / power related stability is down to cooling and design of said GFX card so again whilst lowering / underclocking will reduce the load and temperatures you need to ask yourself what is the real source of all the problems, is it the software (APB) or hardware.
  4. Some inspiration for 2022, on the note of style APB is still above all when it comes to customisation. Hope something positive takes place this year,
  5. Given this scenario, in summary you are saying to get it stable you had to underclock your GFX card?
  6. Hello Sgt Drayke, You appear to have done a lot of testing and I have some questions about your tweaks. What happens if you keep everything as you have done but run the GFX card at 100% factory settings? So undo all the EVGA precision settings so that the card is running as EVGA advertised. And why does your card show 2040MHz for the GPU?
  7. A gaming concept with gunplay and movement mechanics that is pushing nearly over 10 years old is probably the biggest limiting factor of the game right now.
  8. Can't be, gold servers were always empty Off topic - Spotted you in social.
  9. Here from 2016 https://youtu.be/f-cG5ktAEN4 What you see in the above is no longer possible, range, speed and bloom all different. (i've lost track of all the changes)
  10. The OCA-EW 626-SD Silverado is a shadow of it's former self. There was a time when it was op (like most things) Then it became balanced Now it's broken. The current 17.5m range doesn't help, the limited 22 mag means you need to make sure you are on target and the bloom is a killer. Plus the current server performance it simply feels like your rounds disappear.
  11. E.g, It means you do not introduce new mechanics or content that is game breaking, Exactly the point which the developers need to consider.
  12. No one actually said 9 years vs X years is to suggest said person is right, the statement highlights that said player is still loyal to the game and this is even mentioned at the end. However what is does show is that the said player has seen a lot of changes and the question is, why have certain aspects of the game only been changed now when it never used to be a problem back then? It is questioning the introduction of new content and if you look deeply at what has happened over the course of APB you will see a pattern, for example. A new weapon gets introduced, the gun / gameplay meta is changed. Something happens, oh no we broke the game by introducing 1 new weapon. Oh, OK, lets re-balance everything to make it work. Cycle repeats, new weapon, something happens, re-balance. Nobody likes this and I could talk about a time when the OCA Silverado was a decent gun compared to what it is right now. Who decided these changes? Who was complaining? The video is highlighting a serious issue with the game management and development, that is, WHO IS IN CONTROL OF THE GAME? WHO IS SETTING THE DIRECTION? Think about that, the players or the developers? I am by no means suggesting that players should simply put up with things that are game breaking but at the same time there needs to be decent direction and control by the developers to know what is right. And this is where the 9 year player can truely say the game play and gun mechanics at a certain point in APB's history were actually not bad compared to what is happening right now. No one is against content if the circumstances are right and it is done correctly, everyone knows the engine upgrade will help achieve this but as stated above the issue is the balancing act, It is not about using the best gun and or "learning" to use a broken one, that is the illogical thought process which simply ignores the true nature of the problem.
  13. My friend made this, it's a message to the APB community and Little Orbit.
  14. Hello, The game requires an older version of PhysX which probably didnt install due to a newer version being present. Go to your APB folder and find the older PhysX installer. C:\APB Reloaded\TPI\PhysX Install this >PhysX_9.10.0129_SystemSoftware If steam look in your steam folder C:\Steam\steamapps\common\APB Reloaded\TPI\PhysX Not sure where to look for it? Right mouse on the APB icon, Open file location Then go back one folder.
