Recommended Posts

Game crashes every 2-3 missions,

 

Crashes like to change too:

1) Error not enough memory (yet i got 128 GB)
2) Error not responding and closes
3) Battle eye, "Game didnt responce you been kicked"
4) Game just shuts down no error

Hi .. Appreciate that your having issues.  the errors stated can be all related to one cause,  or sometimes many, but for us to better help you we need to narrow down some information, so can you add some information regarding your system 

 

1) PC Spec hardware -

 

A) If Prebuild list its Manufacture & model Number + any hardware changes you have made. :

Or 

B) If a custom build the Specs of your machine, as follows, 

Motherboard (Model)

Processor (model):

Memory (model + Capacity): 

Graphics Card (title + Model):

Primary OS storage device (Type + model): 

Secondary if used for storing game files  (type + Model) : 

Any peripherals items = Sound cards, capture cards, 

Operating system (type and version id) : 

 

2) the run time environment , 

 

 a) Was you playing the game with any applications recording/capturing or visual overlays for chat clients ?   

   b) have you made or installed any new hardware to your compute since the game was installed ? 

     c) Do you run any 3rd party Antivirus or Malware security applications that have updated since the last known working time the game ran ? 

       d) do you run the game "vanilla" or via a modded launcher like "ADV"?

you gotta remember this game was 100% focused on how pretty your can make your player and car and not on how it runs. so think of APB as a soggy piece of cardboard in the sea were all waiting for LO to pull out dry off and reuse

It's a 32-bit client, doesn't matter how much RAM you have, it will be limited to 4GB. The "out of memory" error is due to RTX 2xxx series (3xxx to a lesser degree) and GTX 16xx series having compatibility issues with the aforementioned 32-bit. The new engine will be 64 bit, though : (

Thank you for taking the time with such a big reply here are my specs: 
 

Motherboard (Model): ASUS PRIME X370-PRO (AM4)

Processor (model): AMD Ryzen 7

Memory (model + Capacity): 4x 32 GB Corsair DDR4

Graphics Card (title + Model): NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

Primary OS storage device (Type + model): SSD Samsung 1 TB

Secondary if used for storing game files  (type + Model) : Synology NAS (no i dont store apb here) 

Any peripherals items = Sound cards, capture cards, Sound card: Sound Blaster Z

Operating system (type and version id) : Windows 10, OSB 19042.867
 

a) Was you playing the game with any applications recording/capturing or visual overlays for chat clients ?   
None, just APB and eclipse IDE open

b) have you made or installed any new hardware to your compute since the game was installed ? 
Few new things, but it always worked fine up untill recently. no new hardware was installed that causes issues

c) Do you run any 3rd party Antivirus or Malware security applications that have updated since the last known working time the game ran ? 
No

d) do you run the game "vanilla" or via a modded launcher like "ADV"?
Vanilla

I have tried a clean APB install aswell as the "repair" option.
Also i follewed the steps from another post in the geforce settings. 
Any help/suggestions be much appriciated,

Probably the RTX

 

 

I also have a RTX 2060 and frequently have crashes whenever I try to spawn/respawn

 

Unfortunately there are no real fix for that, we just have to wait for the engine upgrade (this issue will not exist in it)

hi @Bawes

 

Good PC .  its nice to have to much of everything right, intel 8c 16t 3.4ghz, 32gb ddr4, EVGA XC3 ultra RTX3070, Creative AE-5+, and 5 ssds + 1 hdd. and we play a 10year old game.  oh and nice sound card 😁 you will like the AE-5+.  it is correct that apb only supports 4gb of system memory, you could actually load the entire game in our amount of memory.

 

Anyway.. So a few pointers. from easy to a bit more tricky . Iv tried to keep this short but with info to back my madness.

(I have to state : all actions are your own accountability, I am only sharing my own experiences.) 

 

1) Check your windows Firewall, just to make sure you have allowed the game access. common issue. and windows updates can reset applications. this would also apply to defender and  AV / AM ,as they all now monitor applications activity and acces to memory + storage devices. so you may need to allow the application to run to gain access. again a 10 year old game, some security applications dont know what apb is. LOL 

 

2 Part 1) RTX 2060 is known to be an issue, more than 3k , although there isnt enough 3k out there yet.  this is covered in the "sticky Topic" of which i covered a huge section about some testing i have done.  setting the gpu to "application controlled and creating a 3dm profile for apb," this if done right, and setting your gpu to a "normal" powermanagement state - performance state, plus other options will drastically help, why? unknown, we believe Nvidias boost overclock feature throughs the game,. also some other "theories"   I say if done right because to many people miss a step rushing through or not taking note correctly. 

     note to this, a lot of "Youtube Techies" state to put your gpu and Pc to "maximum performance" this is ok if your benchmarking, but games dont always like this 

2 Part 2) I would try running the game in a window mode like iv stated in the "sticky Topic" .  this is down to windows 10 and nvidia handling your display / monitor when running applications "fullscreen". you can simply run apb in a window a few pixels below full res,. check the topic states how to sync frames of the game, instead of the game doing it. after a game or two you wont notice the difference . 

2 part 3) Drivers & Direct X .. I found first hand about this many times and i never learnt my lesson until it hit me hard with the 900Series and again with the 3070.. and swear by it now. if you get a new gpu , always do a clean os install when upgrading your system. as so much of the os windows 10, Direct X is tied into the operation of gpu hardware and Drivers. Obvious right.  This is especially if your gpu supports DX12 Ultimate.  I found installing my 3070 into an os with none Dx12U features caused chaos.. and the only solution is to do a fresh install, installing the os into the new GPU environment for the go.  so if your 2060 has been playing up since any of the dx12u features have been enabled or an nvidia driver update inline with w10 service update. this could be your issue. "could" being the word. 

( I would leave a full os reinstall as your very very last option, although i myself do this annually to the latest version of os and to keep the system super smooth.) 

 

3 part 1 ) running the game on your OS Primary drive will always be an issue.  so this has been a known issue for ages. yet many still run the game like it. just about all games after dx9a could be installed to a secondary drive.  although modern games seem to be ok with running on "C:" you will always get better performance on a secondary storage device, as your os + other applications have to "seek, read write" your C primary thousands of times a minute. 

3 part 2 ) through running my own tests  of APB on SSD or on HDD, I have actually found the game runs better on HDD, sata3 7200rpm .. I have no answer why.. but on 4 machines  the game on SSD chokes. 

 

4) [this is rare, old "I.T tales"  but always worth a check], a long time ago it used to be a big no no to mix amd with nvidia on boards not specifically stating support for nvidia., it has been said more recently now that amd are resource sharing there own cpus with there own gpus, it would be worth going into your bios and check your motherboard is correctly configured for your gpu, this being pci-X 16 v3 or v4, but correct voltage and interface spec. also check your OS configuration for this, you can load up NVC > help > system information or get the free gpuZ app.    not doubting this the issue. as you may play other games. but its something worth checking if youv had issues else were.
