So, i tried to download the Beta client, but your installer tells me that my computer doesn't support AVX instructions, and that APB requires an AVX capable Processor and Operating system. luls

My computer config:

i7 960 @ 3.2ghz
16gb DDR3 HyperX 1866mhz
1 EVGA GTX 970 Super OC
1TB HDD WD Caviar Black

Win7 Ultimate

It's a tad old by today's standards, but it generally serves me well daily.
I want to be part of this Beta, to know and show how my older PC will handle the new aesthetics of APB, specially being a SA player. Think my feedback would be useful too!

That was mentioned in the last test as well. 

At this point in time there is a need for AVX, but they'll look at whether they can get it running equally well without that requirement.

The fact you still can't figure out what the sensitivity multiplier is in your own game, in your own beta, is just baffling. Not worth even turning up, it'll be a waste of time like the last time.

I'm getting an installation error when I go to download the beta client. I still have the beta client from the last test installed though so is this just the same client? Should I just update the launcher instead of downloading this one again?

If you joined us for the 1st Beta Test, you don't need to redownload the Beta launcher. You can simply run the launcher and update the game.

Too early, wait until the actual time mentioned 🙂

It should just be your standard game account (log in with email, steam won't work during testing)

Is there any other way to download the beta (not through the launcher) - Once I open the launcher, the download speed spikes up to 10mb/s and the starts to get slower and slower, until it's about 100kb/s

And yes, I waited until today to download, since last time I downloaded too early.

I personally found the text font to be a bit "cartoon", too bold in my perspective. I saw some people dislike in in the chat, and some people like it. To establish the middle ground, I believe an UI Customization could be implemented, in which we can change some colors and the fonts or something else, which will be pre-programmed so that the feature wouldn't be exploited.

Hey! I'll just give my thoughts, only tested the social district:

 

Pros:

-Overall loading times are much, much faster (game starting up, logging in, loading into districts)

-FPS are pretty good (for me personally)

-Details added around social look good

 

Cons: (Basically only the lighting)

-The lighting overall seems too exaggerated/bright imo

-Having light shining onto my character from below while the light source is above seems quite off to me (social wardrobe room as an example)

 

That's it! So far I'm happy to see the changes, looking forward to more!

according to a bunch of users, they are reporting the game isn't taking advantage of their GPUS.

Also stutters on high end users..


Played for about 30 minutes heres what I got.
SPECS:
GPU: Gtx 980 ti
CPU:I7 4790k

Ram: 8gbs ddr4

 

     Grphecs
Lot of textures do not like bloom usage, such as fences.
My Male model looks like he proped on oil for a massage. 

foliage looks weird when its copied and pasted with the same asset. 
                    BUGS
Crashed right side of stairs in social district by the folliage, the crashed happened after I hit crouch button twice.
Crashed by clicking return to lobby.(I may have done this once or twice already before the initial crash.) Insert image from URL
Game stutters a lot.
Doesn't like explosions. 
FPS should technically be higher IMO.

Crashed by returning to lobby, then I selected my other character, was on the loading screen to Fight Club

I mean, its looks OKAY.  Its not game changing or game  breaking.  I dont feel this is going to save the game at all.  Same game with some makeup on.  meh.  

 

I was max settings 100fps no  hitching or lag.  

 

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8 CPUs)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970

32 gig dd3r3 2400 ram

 

OS is on SSD, game installed and launched on SSD

 

Really wish you had given us the option for FInancial or Waterfront.
