    How to fix your low FPS!

    There are many solutions and I'm going to post each of mine that works.
    Things you should know...
    I have a Windows 7, 64 Bit, Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.2 GHz with 2 GB of ram and I can run APB Fine.

    SOLUTION #1 : VIRTUAL RAM

    Go to Start -> Right Click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced Tab -> Performance Settings.
    Select Adjust for Best Performance. Go to the Advanced Tab and Under Virtual Memory select Change. Select Custom Size and adjust the setting according to the size of your current available hard drive space that you want for Virtual Memory. Currently I have mine set to 10000 - 10000. Once finished select Set and you should be prompted to Restart. Even if you aren't RESTART.

    SOLUTION #1 PART #2 : ACTUAL RAM
    Self explanatory get some more RAM!

    SOLUTION #2 : BEST LOWEST SETTINGS
    Go to the directory...
    x64 Bit:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\GamersFirst\APB Reloaded\APBGame\Config"
    x32 / x84 Bit:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\GamersFirst\APB Reloaded\APBGame\Config"
    Open "APBCompat.ini" using NotePad ++.
    Press CTRL+F and type
    Code:
    [AppCompatBucket1]
    and then select Find Next.
    Now select everything from VideoQuality=1 to ShadowVolumePrimitiveScreenSpacePercentageThreshol d=0.25 .
    Copy everything below and replace the selected area:

    Press CTRL+F and type
    Code:
    [AppHWConstraintsBucket1]
    and then select Find Next.
    Now select everything from [AppHWConstraintsBucket1] to the end of the file.
    Copy everything below and replace the selected area:
    Code:
    [AppHWConstraintsBucket1]
    fMipBiasDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=-1.0
    bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=false

    NumberOfTextureCreationPerFrame = 10
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByVBPool=20971520
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByIBPool=5242880
    
    [AppHWConstraintsBucket2]
    fMipBiasDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=-1.0
    bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerVehicleTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=false

    NumberOfTextureCreationPerFrame = 10
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByVBPool=20971520
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByIBPool=5242880
    
    [AppHWConstraintsBucket3]
    fMipBiasDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=-1.0
    bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerCharacterTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseLocalPlayerVehicleTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerCharacterTextures=false
    bCompressDiffuseOtherPlayerVehicleTextures=false
    bCompressNormalTextures=true
    nMaxMemoryCacheEntryCount=120

    MaxMemoryUsedByTextureStreaming=314572800
    MaxMemoryUsedByTexturePool=150000000
    MaxMemoryUsedByMeshStreaming=104857600
    NumberOfTextureCreationPerFrame = 10
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByVBPool=20971520
    MaxFreeMemoryUsedByIBPool=5242880
    Now go to the directory...
    x64 Bit:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\GamersFirst\APB Reloaded\Binaries"
    x32 / x84 Bit:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\GamersFirst\APB Reloaded\Binaries"
    Right click APB.exe -> Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut) . ALWAYS USE THIS SHORTCUT. Bucket 1 is minimal so in-game press O -> Video Settings and set it to Minimal. Then select the Advanced tab and make sure everything is off and at the lowest possible setting. Every 2 weeks or if you get a file error make a backup of the APBCombat.ini and run the loader to update, then replace the APBCombat.ini again.

    SOLUTION #3 : BOOST YOUR PC
    Do what ever it takes. Download everything from
    Advanced System Care [IMG]http://www****bit.com/tpl/img/screenshot/ascfree/1.png[/IMG]
    to GameBooster [IMG]http://www****bit.com/tpl/img/screenshot/gb/6.png[/IMG].
    If possible even overclock your PC, but I'm never responsible for anything .

    If you liked my Guide and it worked, thank me.
    Credits and props go out to Google.
    If it didn't work for you, too bad, thank me anyways.
    Oh and if your reading this as a Moderator, sticky.

    If you have Windows 7, I believe that you can go high in virtual ram. You shouldn't go over 10 GB, 10,000 is good enough, and Advanced System Care comes with a Tool called Smart RAM that cleans ram automatically, and I found another way of making it faster, but I really don't know if it will work so I'm going to try it:

    In the second bucket edit replace:
    Code:
    bCompressNormalTextures=true
    with
    Code:
    bCompressNormalTextures=false
    I'll get back to you guys on that.

    Mine says Total Paging size for all drives: 4095. So to get better performance what should I change it too?

    EDIT: says recommended is 6130 so I changed to that

    It all depends on how much you want if recommended is 6130 then go for it.

    I dont mean to bust in and all but all these files are reverted back to default on game start up.Will work 1 time then reset on next start up you need to repeat process..

    You didnt teach them to disable any startup stuff that loads with pc (using resources the game could.)

    Game booster can <u>defrag</u> your game file which I think is one of its most important features and should be done every patch it also can disable features to free up ram on a non optimized system. However after running this boost process it will be running in your sytem tray and the only way to close it is cntrl+alt+delete.

    Advanced system care is a resource user after installation it auto starts with your computer. You can configure it not to which also should have been mentioned..

    You could also click start click run or type in the search bar MSCONFIG and press enter then go to the services tab and disable all the bs start up processes.. freeing up more ram then Game Booster ever could.

    Also you could in that same run/search bar type SERVICES.MSC and put all updaters for ever program in your pc on manual. Among other things change all the things Gamebooster disables to manual so you dont need game booster for anything but a defrag..

    Also you said get more ram but you didnt tell them to check and make sure thier bios is set up for upgrades I personally would be pist if I bought 4 extra gigs of ram and found out I couldnt use it because my bios cant be updated unless I write a new one myself..When that bios alarm goes off its over buddy..

    I personally dont like your guide.. However the ability to edit the ini. files is useful just doing it every start up blows.. and I dont know just makes you feel not so clean like banging a broad that smells like douche ya know..

    I suggest a new computer all the games being released in next 2-3 years are going to be 4 core or more support only time to wake up and get in the fast lane..

    Recomended

    quad core 3.0 ghz or higher per core (6-8 core better)
    4-16 gigs of ram (8-16 better) (with ram coolers)
    Nvida 500 + series graphics CARD not chip set (the higher the better)
    4-6 fans or liquid coolant.
    Terabyte network card
    64 bit Plus systems only

    Should cost you 800-950 on ebay good luck..

    Edit also if you think this is exspensive- The 100's hours you spend trying to edit configuration files, and money you spend buying new parts, gcards, ect to play your games you could use working towards that money.. Not to mention the 100's of hours you waste playing your games..
