Some tearing in browser

12 August 2017 - 08:26 AM

Summary: The in-game web browser has some strange tearing.
 
Description: On certain pages in the web browser, notably ARMAS item listing pages, there's tearing somewhere around the center of the screen as scene in this image below around the height of the Tump Mask:

(Excuse my GPU drivers putting the framerate on-screen.)

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Open ARMAS.

2. Go to the item listings.
 
How many times have you recreated this bug: On the main ARMAS listings page? Every time, I haven't kept count.
 
Results: The screen is causing ugly tearing.
 
Expected Results: Not tearing.


Forum Warnings need to be reworked.

19 May 2017 - 11:46 PM

As the current system is set up on the forums it's basically a "quit the forums while you're ahead or live long enough to get banned" scenario, where mods can warn anyone for a million reasons and no matter what you do you'll never get rid of those warnings. Mods aren't even obliged to answer members as to why they get warned, and what's more they're incapable of messaging mods once they get banned. What's worse is the fact that what (certain) mods warn for is basically arbitrary 'cause at this point half of all posts on the forums are against certain rules in the ToS, especially ones put in place to stop "un-productive" posts as well as anti-flame rules.

 

It's to the point where posting a satirical comment remarking on something being in the wrong sub-forum can get you banned, as happened to my friend just today. Another friend of mine got three warnings at once for a minor offense recently, and was permanently banned from those three warnings. One mod in particular, as far as I can tell, has been basically warning people for anything he can imagine and not responding to their PMs when they try to discuss it with him, but obviously I'm not going to bring up his name.

 

The worst part is that you can never get rid of warnings, and I'm not just making this up, I know this from good intel, so unless Mod 20 or Tiggs is going to tell me otherwise, I'm pretty sure it's the case. What that means is, as I stated at the start of this thread, someone like me who's been around since 2012 and has over seven thousand posts will never ever get rid of their warnings, and will eventually get enough warnings to get banned because it's virtually impossible to avoid all warnings while actively posting on the forums.

 

 

So can someone of authority please consider revising the system, or at least watch over the mod squad and give them better guidelines? 'Cause this is getting ridiculous. And if you're going to take action against this thread, at least have the courtesy to lock it instead of removing it.


Does anyone remember that time G1 said they were going to work on the EU?

Like, I have this distinct feeling that they said they weren't going to bother with new content or anything else until the Engine Upgrade was released on all platforms?

 

I kinda' feel like the majority of the community here agreed we wanted them to work on the EU, was that a dream?

 

Please tell me this isn't just me.


Hey Gamersfirst, do you know what nobody asked for? Phone Poles.

They're everywhere, and they're a hassle, not to mention an eyesore. The last thing APB needed was driving to be more difficult, and here you are putting phone poles everywhere you can, whether that be right next to shortcuts making them harder to take, on the side of streets where people often park for objectives, or on corners that you'd normally cut across the sidewalk on. Hell, there's even at least one directly in front of a car spawner (SE of Ty Durant.)

 

So many of the design choices you made in the Engine Upgrade seem like they were done impulsively without any concern for their effect on the game, and the ludicrous number of phone poles across the city is just one of those things.

 

It's like you saw all of the people complaining about the random invincible light posts around the city that everyone hates AND DECIDED TO ADD MORE OF THEM.

 

I want to have faith in you RP, I really do! Honestly, I'm impressed at how well the PS4 release performs among all of the other people complaining that it's horrible, but just. . . you all did so many things for no reason that I hate in the EU. Admittedly most of my issues are visual, but still, the longer I think about the ~3 hours I played on PS4 the more pissed off I am, and visual issues are a big deal to me, APB is largely based on visuals after all.

 

 

And don't give me some excuse about it being realistic or for visuals or something, 'cause modern cities don't have that many powerlines. Power and all that mommy's run underground now, it's just better. Overhead powerlines are outdated, so why did they suddenly pop up around San Paro? And even if there was a reason, please don't just change the entire city on a whim, that's just silly. San Paro is San Paro, it's been a thing for years and years, don't just decide you want it to be different than how it is. San Paro is to many APB players their home away from home and we like it for what it is, so think things through before you change it and preferably ask, 'cause believe it or not we're as invested in this game as you are.

 

 

*EDIT* I'll probably be posting some more about the EU soon now that I can play it, but this was the most urgent.
