A word of caution about the Open Beta

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Today I had to make a tough call. Both yesterday and today, our internal network had massive problems causing long outages at a time which prevent staff from making a lot of progress on their work. This includes Customer Support, Quality Assurance, and Development. We had a number of last minute bugs we wanted to address that might have made tomorrow a bit smoother, but only one of them got addressed.

The Open Beta final build has been released.

Everyone should try to patch now.


Against my better judgment, I'm sticking withtomorrow's test as planned, because I said we'd do it. So we're doing it.

 

Details here:

http://gamersfirst.com/apb/news/2020/6/22/legendary-beta

 

I don't recommend anyone stream this build. There are bound to be lots of problems. It just isn't the build I had hoped for.

 

Please also check the Known Issues here:

 

Lastly, we will be doing more of these as regularly as we can.

 

Sorry,
Matt

Don't worry Matt, it's a beta, there's bound to be bugs, no need for a sorry 🙂

Whatever fine fellow wrote the news post already supplied an auto time zone converter for our convenience; HERE
Unless you simply mean for people in certain parts of the world where that time is not optimal, then that's just unavoidable ;(

Imagine living on a rock in the middle of the ocean and being the only western country in that entire timezone.

I suppose this is to be expected since the official recommended hardware for APB hasn't been updated since 2009.  Hell are you gonna do with a 8800GT with 512MB of VRAM?

The graphics these streamers run on it's as if they're all using iGPUs.

Yeah, that's a huge mixture of things.  It improves performance due to just how old and raggedy APB is.  Some of it is also just preference.  2.1 however can actually use a lot of "space" that modern hardware gives though.  So you should see more of your hardware being used compared to Live.

its hard to set a time that every one can get on and test - somewhere it's 4 am for others and in others it's 2 am. people are always going to get cucked over people who have jobs at this time too... i do feel sorry though

Oh it's so dramatic... please I wasn't bashing the beta read what I posted you blind fuck, I was merely stating it was unplayable for me due to the ping and game related problems like the spawns that kind of crap sorry I didn't elaborate on it and I'm sorry I offended you not..I also stated that I would of loved to play it and was looking forward to it but due to the time it's a miss for me and i'm gonna call it quits...because I'm burnt out at this point before your fingers start typing consider reading first..

Edit: please downvote me I don't give to shits at all I feed on it

... Before you say any other bullshoot I break silence to why you get dislikes and say it again - beta didn't even started yet.

How the fuck you even "play" it then, liar?

Btw. notice I wasn't quoting you in first post.

It's a beta, technical issues are bound to happen. Don't stress yourself too hard Matt, even if it's not the build you were hoping to let us play you still got those bugs covered. I'm personally really happy to be able to play regardless of how stable it will be lol
