APB Reloaded Crashes, Error Codes, FPS, Lag, Steam, and Performance Fixes


All Points Bulletin is still alive and it has found a new life at Steam. APB Reloaded ‘Free to Play version of the game’ can now be played using Steam and if you are among those who are already testing it out, you wouldn’t know the game is not without bugs.

Don’t worry though, we have jotted down every possible workaround that can help you resolve any issue you may encounter while playing APB:Reloaded.

#1 Game Crashes Constantly Error – ‘Out of Memory’
If you meet minimum memory requirements but are still facing the issue then you can try this workaround to make full use of the available memory.

#2 Game Crashes With Error 0x776be3fb
You can try following workaround to resolve this issue:

  • Reinstall the Physx
  • Check the File integrity (some files might be missing)
  • Or if you are using AMD gfx, use only one monitor while disable the rest.

#3 Being Kicked By Punckbuster/Server Kick
If the server keeps kicking you, you can try the following workarounds:

  • Open the Windows Control Panel, and navigate to “Add/Remove Programs” (on XP) or “Uninstall a program” (on Vista/Win7).
  • Uninstall “PunkBuster Services”.
  • Restart the machine after the uninstallation process has completed.
  • Open the APB Launcher. It will indicate that it is installing PunkBuster.

If the above workaround doesn’t work for you, you can try this alternative:

  • Navigate to the folder where APB is installed, and open the Binaries folder. Inside Binaries, select the ‘pb’ folder and delete it.
  • Open the web page
  • Type in the Security Code and click Download Now.
  • Save the ‘pbsetup.zip’ file to your computer, and extract the ‘pbsetup.exe’ file from inside the zip file.
  • Run ‘pbsetup.exe’.
  • Click I Agree and OK and Click ‘Add a Game’.
  • Next to Game, select APB Reloaded in the drop down.
  • Next to Game Path, browse to the Binaries folder inside your APB installation folder. For example if APB is installed at C:\Games\APB Reloaded, then the box should read “C:\Games\APB Reloaded\Binaries\”.
  • Click ‘Add Game’ and then Click ‘Check for Updates’.
  • When the update process completes, click OK and close the application.

#4 Error – District Failed to Connect
If you can’t connect to district after login then you need to reinstall/update your Punkbuster.

#5 Being Kicked by Punkbuster – Loosing Key Packets
You should uninstall Punkbuster, restart your PC and re-install Punkbuster to solve the issue. Follow the link for detailed instructions.

#6 Can’t Connect/Enter Armas Marketplace
Add APB_Geckoprogram in your firewall exceptions list or just disable your firewall to resolve this issue. You may have to disable your anti-virus, if it is blocking this file.

#7 Crossfire Launch/Performance Issue
If you are using dual cards through a crossfire then you should rename the “APBprogram” file to “Crysisprogram” as APB does not support Crossfire by default.

#8 Game Launcher Does Not Start
If you don’t get the launcher after executing the file then you should:

  • Update Internet Explorer to the latest version (regardless if you use IE or not)
  • And make sure that you have latest version of .Net Framework.

#9 Getting 60004 Error
The only way to get rid of this issue is to contact the customer support and tell them your character’s name and world. They will fix the issue for you.

#10 Error – Failed To Initialize Physx
If you are getting this error then uninstall the Physx, restart your system, and reinstall it from APB folder>\TPI\PhysX\PhysX_9.10.0129_SystemSoftwareprogram.

#12 ABP Reloaded Lag Fix
To fix the high pings and lag, you can try the following workaround:

  • Pando media booster is a program that is installed automatically along with the game. Uninstalling can free up your resources a bit.
  • Or try this latency fix to reduce the ping.

#13 Can’t Login Through Steam
If your Steam account is not working then login with gamersfirst ID.

#14 Vivox Voice Doesn’t Load/Start
You can try starting the program manually from Gamersfirst/APB Reloaded/Binaries folder.

      • http://segmentnext.com Zawad Iftikhar

        may be some application is conflicting with the game or a resource ‘memory leak’. Check in task manager if your processor usage or memory usage is jumping to 100%. Then check which application is causing that and stop that application when you play the game..
