Recent ban wave and approved launchers

Recommended Posts

I know this is probably a bit off topic but since I haven't seen anything about possibly adding a setting to change the resolution of the game without changing it? I don't know if this is the right name for it but it's like "quality resolution" or something?

I heard about this and I was certain that something more than just the usual file editing was being done with this launcher. Thanks for clearing things up.

Come on. almost all of them already had EU/US accounts so they knew about it. And even if they didn't  it's pretty damn obvious it's not allowed.

Can't get rid of the trash in this game it seems.

lol? this should be wayyy worse than yours.

it's an i7 - but that should not matter in the slightest since single core matters here - and you both have a 5ghz oc and his is 5 years/gens older.

 

unless it's for his config he must've gotten super lucky with the lows too during his bench - or it was way too short

in short ... you need to somehow double-check all players with an anti-cheat

Can L.O. clearify what modifications are we allowed to use? For example no muzzle flash or no bullet holes, these modifications does not give any advantage at all.

Im pretty sure Matt mentioned that removing muzzleflash is not okay. I can't find the post right now though.

modify their game directory files. 

 

This might be a silly question considering it's minor, and a decent portion of the community probably does this. But does modifying the directory files include renaming things such as the Vivox voice program and the themes folder to effectively disable those two things? If doing those things too are something that can result in a ban, it would be good to know.

There are several programs that in no way affect the game but load the computer; if you turn them off, the FPS grows by 10-15

Hi all,

 

We recently banned a large number of players for using external tools to modify their game directory files. 

 

I want to remind everyone that only the Advanced Launcher has been approved by Little Orbit. This program only makes changes to the config that any normal player can make by hand editing the config themselves.

 

Use of the Advanced Launcher has been temporarily approved until we can integrate these features directly into APB Reloaded, and then we will not allow it any more.

 

Players should only download the Advanced Launcher directly from us here:

https://media.gamersfirst.com/gamersmedia/apb/Advanced_APB_Launcher.zip

 

Here is an example of a launcher that is NOT allowed that actually got a number of players banned. 

 

E66686EB-33FE-4975-BC47-7431A54A2BEE.jpeg

 

This is NOT the Advanced Launcher we approved, because it goes far beyond editing the config. This replaces shaders and massively hacks the game.

 

Since the advertisement for this and other launchers makes them seem like the Advanced Launcher that we approved, I’m going to assume some of our players didn’t know the difference, and I am going to unban these players since they were not given any warnings. They have already been banned for more than a week. That’s punishment enough.

 

However, I am not disabling the EAC auto ban for these types of programs, and there wont be a second chance again.

 

Please pass the word to your friends to uninstall these other launchers and to reinstall APB. 

 

We will continue to ban for this level of changes to your game files. Do not put your account at risk.

 

Thanks,

Matt

Looks pathetic when you ban people for using a launcher which not provides wh/aim/norec/trigger/radar or anything else but you are not able to ban even a pixel triggerbot hehe.

I like the person who disliked my comment lol. Kid thats the truth and if you dont like it then plz stop gaming. If you cant use what is provided to you by the devs (were lucky there allowing an outside program like the adv launcher as anybody else wouldn't allow it) then you got no reason to play.

So what I get from this is that ONLY the Adv.Launcher is an allowed game changer, and ANY thing else is a bannable offense. So I dont understand why people are having a hard time understanding. No fog remover, no muzzle flash remover, ect... unless its from the Adv.launcher its a BANNABLE OFFENCE.

If it's in the Advanced Launcher you can use it.

 

If it's not, you are running the risk of being banned.

 

Not difficult.
