I tried 3 times, the moment the custom intro starts your game crashes

ID: hr9irue

A funny thing happened to me, as someone picked the new skin, it crashed but then I got back into the game as we were diving.

THEN, the audio for the new trailer / cinematic starts playing WHILE I'm playing the game. The audio kept playing until I died

ID: hr8pv1r

Same for me

ID: hr8q5ob

Yup it’s frustrating…

ID: hr9hzp9

This is pathetic. Blue bomber untested and has red helmet on select screen. Random crashes during ranked. Now this skin doesnt even work 😀 Instead of buying some skin i will buy popcorn and watch as all this trash slowly burns to ashes.

Client crash here. Fuck your team over before you even get onboard. Oscar mike, ladies.

Because of course it does.

As expected from a small indie company

ID: hr9i98m

Well their passion and potential got sucked out by EA. Eventually a dry husk of apex skin shop is what we will have. With a barely running game.

ID: hr9uwqv

Every decision is made by Respawn, please stop using EA as the scapegoat.

Apex legends NFTs only 6000$

As it impacts monetization, expect a fix this week.

The inability to run on PS4 due to performance issues? Nah, let's ignore that.

ID: hr935lr

What do you mean with inability on ps4?

ID: hr93vof

Yeah it runs fine for me on ps4

ID: hr94noc

Freezing. It happens on older Xbox’s as well.

ID: hr95vxo might just need to replace your ps4 lmao

ID: hr9bd78

Naw crack that baby open and clean out your fan with some compressed air. Saved me a load of money. She’ll run almost as new! And clean the hard drive too. There’s some great tutorials on YT on what to do.

Forgot to mention I still use a gen 1 PS4!

ID: hr9irqa

Ikr man, thats what i say, every thread made for complaining against respawn devs people mention this console lag/freeze glitches. Ive played on 3 new and old consoles and never experiences these. People either have bad consoles or bad wifi

I'll add it to the reasons we don't like Bangalore.

ID: hr8ukou

I like Bangalore, but this is ridiculous

ID: hr8ut5d

It's a joke. Me too tho

Judging by the error message its the Cloak Pilot rendering in, which is really weird considering its invisible

ID: hr8zrlu

It's weirder that it's working perfectly fine when some leaker posted it on the other sub, but not the actual thing.

ID: hr8zv5j

Yeah apex is a shitshow when it comes to something breaking the game

ID: hr97c37

Had to patch the bug myself to render it out when datamining. Kept crashing with this error.

10 : Anonymous2022/01/04 20:26 ID: hr9b16b

No update without at least one severe error that should've been caught by proper quality control. The Respawn way of life.

11 : Anonymous2022/01/04 19:18 ID: hr90dxm

watch it be fixed before they even acknowledge the rampage exploit

12 : Anonymous2022/01/04 22:07 ID: hr9qt55

Thoroughly playtested as always from respawn

13 : Anonymous2022/01/04 22:18 ID: hr9shb9

Great work, the least heavy update this season so far crashes ur game

14 : Anonymous2022/01/04 18:13 ID: hr8q5az

Well dude that sucks. I’ve never heard of a cosmetic crashing a game before either that’s wild.

ID: hr8vf6x

It's not the first time this has happened on Apex

ID: hr8vwxe

It’s been so long since I played lol thanks for letting me know. Do you know why it happens?

ID: hr8zizf

Happened with animated banners last season. Was really bad for a couple weeks

ID: hr90eqy

Ugh that had to be a drag! Thanks for the info.

15 : Anonymous2022/01/04 18:15 ID: hr8qgh9

Yep just happened to me. 2 games in a row. Goddaaaammnnn it

16 : Anonymous2022/01/04 22:39 ID: hr9vreh

This game doesn’t feel the same anymore.

17 : Anonymous2022/01/04 20:14 ID: hr990yv

PS. We are working on it.

ID: hr9rijl

It seems like you need to define the convar


Because in the sh_anim_windows.nut it calls

SetConVarFloat( strip( conVarName ), startValue )

And it plugs in an unfunctional ConVar from the settings block causing the crash.

This was just from 15 mins of poking around so idk if its more complicated

ID: hr9cao0

Free banga T Pose emote for all those affected?

ID: hr9cucy

How does this even miss testing? Not to bust your chops here but this is such a glaring issue that literally consists of running the game while wearing the skin.

ID: hr9hpqs

Two things come to mind

1) Their test environment isnt a perfect replica of Prod, so it may have worked in test but failed in production.

2) Something went wrong with their prod deployment - Maybe some content related to the skin didnt get pushed to prod. So when the game tries to load the skin, it cant find said content and this causes a crash.

Could be a mix of both as well

ID: hr9clcn

How about rampage glitch or slow mo server that boots me from game and steals my rp?

ID: hr9hg7v

doesn't sound like an issue that'll impact the $$$$ so.... "not my problem", probably

ID: hr9ewht

I hope you guys are also working on the bugged Valk skin from the previous event... after more than two weeks Blue Bomber is still unfinished and bugged in both lobby and home screen, which is ridicolous for a $20/60 skin that was the main focus of the last event.

It’s a flashbang-alore

I used to buy skins to support reaspawn and I like cosmetics, but for the entire last season, I’ve said fuck it. Until they get their shit together, I’m tired of supporting their belief that trash is ok

21 : Anonymous2022/01/04 22:39 ID: hr9vsx5

Imagine paying 20€ so that you can have your game crash.
And Respawn is still selling the skin.
Good job.
