Massive bug with the new game mode (Hotfix needed)

Recommended Posts

So while I was streaming today I wanted to mess with a friend of mine that was streaming the new event at the time. I had the intention to simply arrest him in the new mode and mess with him that way, however, while doing so we stumbled over this game breaking bug that will ALWAYS crash the district server. This bug is incredibly easy to recreate because all you have to do is arrest a criminal in the new mode, as soon as the arrest is about to go through the district server will crash and boot everyone inside the district to the login screen.

 

Below I will provide video evidence of said bug but I want to note that I did not intend to crash the district on purpose during attempt 1, I didn't know about this issue and was simply messing with a friend of mine. We went onto crashing the district 2 more times, once to confirm that it really was the arrest crashing the server and the other time showing a GM called Motegi how to reproduce it.

 

This isn't an easy bug to squish, you can't simply disable LTL due to other non LTL guns having the ability to stun such as the OCA Nano and DMR AV / SD.

 

I will put the clips in a spoiler to avoid clutter. @MattScott

Why would you publicly report a game breaking bug in the first place other then reporting it straight to the support team ?

Because it is very unclear whether or not my support ticket will be looked into anytime soon. I'm posting it publically so this can be hotfixed as it is a limited time game mode which will now be unplayable since the bug was broadcasted to 100+ viewers.

A GM was already made aware of it in-game, and yeah, the whole it being broadcasted to 100 viewers anyway... already public knowledge. :S

It was done three times total by Frosi. Once by accident and two to confirm the bug to report it. How else can you report a bug if you don't test/confirm it?


Doesn't mean others weren't also trying to get arrests though, or that it's the only bug related to the event currently. I experienced several crashes right after the patch but didn't see anyone get stunned, so who knows.

I predict the simplest fix for this will be them disabling arrests while playing the mode....

While true both of you need to realize that this was done during a live stream that was broadcasting to 100+ viewers. This will become public knowledge just because of that, people see it, look into it, and tell their friends while I'd be sitting here waiting 3 months for a reply from their support just so "people don't know".

Several APB players reach 100 viewers every time they stream. If it wasn't obvious from the clips posted in OP, it was Shini...

Holy shit... and i've been using stun nades and nano in this event - thank God i don't use stuns to arrest anymore.

This should be instant fixed. Seems there is no support for arrest in this event for whatever reason.

We are also stuck at prestige/notority 0 earning almost no money from the event and also no kill progression towards our weapon roles. It sucks 😞

The first words out of his mouth were about his stream and his videos about the bug. I'm willing to bet his intentions were to promote his video content to gain fame and not with helping the devs find a game breaking bug.
