"... I am reasonably confident that a build will go to the SPCT team in January, and then based on feedback, we might have a public OTW build sometime in February. I want to set expectations properly - there are going to be bugs, and I expect OTW testing to take a while before this gets launched for the larger community."

Hi there,

 

We had a build staged for SPCT to test right at the end of 2018, but we hit a snag while one of our developers was on vacation.

I'm going to give us some time to test and work some kinks out, and then I'll let SPCT post pictures.


Thanks,
Matt

I am curious about something, can you tell me if HQ bloom settings and the old threat system is coming back or not? That's all i wanted to really know. Can you tell me.

There is a post that shows how bad the visuals looks now compared to the RTW and early apb version, but i can't find it.

I been around since RTWI quit this game a long time ago.

Having an account =/= being around

 

I know plenty of people who've been around since RTW, doesn't mean they know any more or less than I do, this statement is irreverent other than for your epeen.

 

i have seen what changes has happen with this game throughout the years

And we haven't? please, mister I quit this game along time ago, enlighten us with your tales and stories.

 

If you were chill and didn't actually care you wouldn't have made this topic. I've seen your posts on the forums before you left, I don't even know why i'm wasting my time, your arrogance is your own undoing from what I've seen. 

 

Bye

I am not familiar with the HQ bloom settings. Can you walk me through those?

 

After we launch the engine upgrade, we have plans for the threat system. The current plan is not to go back to the old system, but we aren't staying with the current system either.

I try to update the community at least once a month, and the link to that blog goes out in our newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and here in case you want to keep tracking our progress.

All these people looking at RTW through rose tintend glasses. Most of which didn't even play the game then or ignore how trash it was.

Sure can, you can see from the photos ( i posted a thread below) the old version (rtw/before monte change the shaders/textures/steam release) there was a setting where you can turn on the bloom higher.)

I want you keep in mind though, when the older visuals were around, with the bloom, better shaders, and blue tracers, nobody was complaining that much, they only started to do it later on way after monte changed the shaders. You have some folks saying the bloom was too much, but most from what i can see says otherwise.

 

Well to solved this issue easily, just add the bloom settings in the graphic menu and allow us to turn it up higher or low and max. make it optional, that way people won't complain. No offense, but the current version of APB the game looks washed out, night time is too dark, there's no lights and bloom or reflections anywhere. hope to see some of this added in the engine upgrade. Thanks for the info.

Its just a difference of opinion. But if the RTW version was available right now, i would play that version instead. the hud looked better, the graphics and visuals were better, the gun sounds was better, the game just felt better. and i am also talking about after rtw, the early days of reloaded also. before everything i just mention was removed and changed.

I don't know where to find it, but I think they might be referring to how bloom used to be more of a plus shape than simply the full circle it is now?

 

I wish they'd remove their stupid encryption/compression.  It's 2019, there's no reason an ancient game like APB needs to take 20 years to even open.

whats the fuzz about the "old" threat system we basically have the old one with hidden 30 stages of gold to bronze.

 

and the bloom, only of it's an optional setting, all those 10.000W bulbs people used back then were really too unhealthy for the environent and their eyes.
