    Do you have an Nvidia card? If so, have you gone into your Nvidia control panel and set the high performance processor to default for the 64bit ARMA instance? Sorry if that is a stupid question, but that's what I did to fix the 1-2fps issue I had.. 


    God, you make me feel like an absolute idiot. I opened the NVIDIA control panel and made sure A3 was using the high-performance processor, and it was. What didn't occur to me is that this was arma3.exe that I was looking at, not arma3_64x.exe. Just checked the control panel, added arma3_64x.exe as a program, and sure enough it's using integrated graphics.


    Thank you and everyone else for your help!

    Have you run it as 32-bit in the mean time? I've had nothing but positives come from running it as 64-bit, but i had a mate say his game became pretty unstable and switching back to 32-bit worked out for him. Not ideal to not be able to use 64-bit but it's kept him going. 


    Yeah, from the A3 root folder I've been able to open A3 with the arma3.exe instead of the arma3_x64.exe and the game appears to run normally, the only problem is that that means A3 is opened without the launcher, so it's completely vanilla and I can't select any mods. How do I run it in 32-bit from the launcher?

    Are you sure that the game is detecting your graphics card?  I know some other people had problems with the game selecting integrated graphics for whatever reason.  


    Just checked, that's not the problem unfortunately, detecting the card just fine.

  4. Just finished updating A3 and tried to start it up with the mods I normally use. It loaded to the main screen then froze there, and I had to use task manager to close it. Tried starting it again but without mods, and this worked fine until I realized I was getting 11 FPS in the main screen. Loaded up Tanoa and placed a unit, and what do you know, 1-2 FPS. Already tried verifying files, will do a full disk defrag shortly. WTF? Anyone else getting this? I would have thought moving up to 64 bit would increase performance? Completely and utterly unplayable... I mean no shit right.

    Quick question: in 0.4.1 or so the way a character holds an AK was changed; before they would hold it by grasping the mag, now they hold it by grasping under the barrel. As far as I know the former is not possible in any way (not even ruPal's mod which previously enabled you to switch between the two grip methods). Is there any chance that being able to grasp the AK by the magazine will be returned? i.e. being able to switch between the two methods? Because I personally preferred holding the AK by the mag, it was more visually pleasing. I only ask because I would assume you guys still have the animation for it, so I thought it might be possible.

    I can`t find garrison module..


    The function that makes units garrison buildings? Select the units you want to garrison, then right click on them. In the menu mouse over "Edit", under this you will find "Garrison Building". The selected units will occupy positions in any buildings near them. I love using this little tool :)

    Headlights use game's native lightOn action, the same as all vehicles.


    Problem is that Arma's AI will turn off helicopter lights whenever you tell them to turn the lights on. So one has to loop the action (which apparently isn't multiplayer friendly) or think up some other cunning solutions. There are plenty of threads about it if you search "Helicopter searchlight"


    How infuriating... well thanks nonetheless :)


    EDIT: This seems to work perfectly: null=[] spawn { while {true} do { player action ["lightOn", heli1]; sleep 0.01};};

  8. When I first saw this I was like "Pfff I don't need a mod that adds more stuff to the editor, the new Eden editor already has everything."


    How wrong I was xD


    Thanks a million, this is absolutely invaluable... saves so much time. I especially love little tidbits like the Garrison Buildings function... before, I would manually place units in all these buildings, which also just kind of killed the mission itself for me because I had a good idea of where a lot of the enemies were. Now with this it takes two seconds and it's random :D

  9. I hate to be *that guy*, but have you considered any more skins for the MiG? I know, I know... I ask only because most of the current skins are Lingor, Nogova, etc... the only real life skins are Bulgaria and USSR, which makes it limiting to use in missions (no Bulgarian Armed Forces mod, so I've used it a bit in missions involving Basher's Soviet Armed Forces). I just feel it's missing skins like Serbian (Serbia uses a handful of Fishbeds, and could be used with RHS:SAF), or Syrian (Syrian Air Force still has like 200 Fishbeds or something outlandish, and SAA will be coming soon to Project OPFOR). I'm sorry this comes off as a request, I would just love to find more ways to use this addon in missions. Thanks so much for all your work!
