Will-my-pc-run-Arma3? What cpu/gpu to get? What settings? What system specifications?

Recommended Posts

@Pete Fox  Speaking about i3,  of course the i3-12100 has been launched Q1' 22  and i3-10100 launched Q2'20 is still in production.

The i3-12100 can get performances at the i7 7700K / R5 3600X level.

Question for you guys, little problem ...  idk but maybe you guys can shed some light on what could be or might be happening.

My computer specs:

  • Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz
  • EVGA Z270 FTW K
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8gb SC2 GAMING iCX
  • G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) @3600mhz
  • EVGA SuperNOVA 1000w P2 220-P2-1000-XR
  • Win10 x64bit

I have 4 SSD's

- A drive 1TB - Brand new never used but installed Arma Reforger on it when it released.

- C Drive 500gb - OS system, drive is 40% full.

- G Drive 500gb - Used for video storage, 20% full.

- H Drive 500gb - Used for all my Steam games including Arma 90% full

======

Situation

idk if its an actual update to Arma Reforger that is occurring but when i see it on steam i usually wait til i see news on it which i haven't.

    So what happens is i see this would be update, and i let it sit, i come back later and the game is gone, not listed in my ready to play games

in my steam library.

     I open up my games list of all the games i have and according to the list reforger is not installed.

Apon opening the icon on my desktop "my computer" which shows all my SSD's my A drive is not there.

 

This has happened twice now, the first time was last week Thursday my A drive just vanished, i come back the following morning

and the A drive is there and i look at my steam library for the ready to play games list and Arma Reforger is there, its like nothing happened.

       Now this morning same thing happened, 2nd time this happened, i get what i think is an update to reforger maybe it is, idk and i let it be as i

was working on some things and didn't want any downloads to inhibit the speed of something i was uploading.

 

    I come back Reforger is gone and so is my A drive, i go to bed, come back turn on the computer and it still shows the A drive is gone,

and reforger is uninstalled at least not showing on the ready to play games list.

      I haven't done anything to the A drive past or present, just installed and formatted it ect,. when i first got it over a year ago,

Arma Reforger has been the only thing that i have installed on it since i bought it last year.

   As for the game itself i haven't had any issues with it, no crashes, no problems starting or loading it, ect,. i was last playing this past Saturday for about 3hrs

and since then its been fine.  About all i can say about it, i haven't touched anything, no OS, gpu, or anything in terms of updates, tweaks, changes, ect,.

 

So anyone have an idea whats happening?, as i never had such an issue with a game, or anything like it related to an SSD or even an HDD for that matter.

how did you connect your ssd?sata or its is external docking?ssd keeps showing up and vanishing might be sign of either bad ssd or cable itself. try diff sata cable and see if that helps.

A and B drives were classically bound to floppy disk drives.

Maybe windows has some old obsolete functions for these drives which are causing your problems.

Maybe just using another character solves it.

Its sata connection, and the SSD is in a tray in my computer tower.

Maybe, but its only bad when? When Reforger is updated, otherwise the game runs fine.

SSD and cable are new as of last year, just never got around to useing it.

Interesting thought, looked it up and it might be very possible thats the issue, whats weird though is why does the A drive dissapear

when Reforger updates, is it accessing something on that drive that has another function,

maybe it cant index it as the one article said. Well i'll do that and then whenever an update comes again we'll see how

it goes, i'll let you guys know what happens on the next update.

   Thanks for the tips!

The functions allocated to drives A: and B: have varied since the early days of MS DOS, but traces of these changes persist in modern versions of the OS.

In principle, although it is theoretically possible, I advise not to use the letters A and B to designate a system disk, C : remains by default the disk sought by Windows to install the system and certain proprietary software will only work on C :  .

In the case raised by Gunter Severloh, it would probably be necessary to know the mechanisms specific to Steam to have an idea of what is happening.

It's entirely possible that Steam has excluded the use of drives A: and B:

In my opinion, you might as well immediately place the Steam library for Arma Reforger on a disk identified by another letter.

Ya its what i did, only way to know for sure that the former problem is solved is to wait for the next update.

I was just ingame and had no issues so, until another update is released we'll see if the drive disappears or not, but from what you and

sarogahtyp explained and i researched after that might be the case, so i think it might be safe to say that i solved the issue,

but i'll let you guys know when another update is released.

Just to let you guys know, i had changed my drive letter to J and yesterday (June 1st) there was an update for

Arma Reforger, low and behold you guys were right, the drive letter being formerly A was the issue, as per the update

nothing happened, the game stayed in the library, and the drive remained, yay

    thanks guys for the insights! Cheers!
