    You've played to much Arma when:

    Your friends (who you played arma for like 7+ years) tell you ARMA 3 is not installed..........

    Virtual Reality ARMA - Oculus/HTC Vive

    ARMA is playable in VR - i have done it on my 10 year old pc and the Oculus DK2......... i never tried it agian on the Vive, Index or Rift S.......... its probably likely that the resolution and performance improvements are there...... I think arma just needs an overhaul now though - regardless of VR or not

    You make up your own rumors of ARMA 4 in your sleep!

    Virtual Reality ARMA - Oculus/HTC Vive

    I think my post disappeared, but anyway - in case the ARMA 4 rumors are circulating again.......... lets remind BI that VR should be a priority in ARMA 4 🙂 I want the next gen of ARMA 4.......... Just like BI were pioneers of OFP in 2001....... the first ever sandbox milisim game. That was revolutionary at its time....... lets have 2020+ be the ARMA 4 revolution in VR that we need........ the community needs ARMA 4 VR!! I want my endless 10km run each day ........ ducking and diving into the trees....... avoiding bullets....... flying jets, flying helis, driving cars, tanks etc etc............. oh man 🙂 I want to remind everyone that apart from Half Life: Alyx there has yet to be a full AAA VR game. Look at the VR games that are out there, those are stuff made by a small dev team and a guy in his bedroom....... imagine with the $$ BI has and the creativity what can be achieved? If BI really pulls of a sandbox/milsim ARMA 4 VR then they are in in to cash in big time........ Watch those EA, UBISOFT and Activision share price tank!!
  5. Gunter mate.......... i love you man :) thats why i got ya on steam bud........... you are a credit to ARMA community....... really :)
  6. So it seems a GPU is also indeed important. However, on this thread 'Will-my-pc-run-Arma3? What cpu/gpu to get? What settings? What system specifications?' it appears that GPU does nothing, but this could just be down to 1080p performance where the CPU is working its hardest. It would be useful to know still if a 2080 ti and a 1070 still delvier the same performance at 4k........ i suspect that the 2080 ti will still hold itself well and the 1070 will drop down and die? Has anyone tested gpu's running at 4k? With ryzen in particular?
  7. what would be useful is if i can see a 1080p, 2k and 4k comparison......... i need to see how much GPU plays a part at high resolution and if theres an impact on FPS.
  8. So that means, highest was 107 fps and average of 60 fps and lowest 42...... based on what i can see. ok makes sense..... good ! then there is progress with ryzen?
  9. @oldbear, i havent yet got all my ryzen 3600x parts ordered......... but if we are just talking 40-60 fps its still quite poor? Unless it shows 0.1% min, how can this benchmark be compared with youtube benchmarks? The results we are getting from YAAB is this minimum or average fps? In which case i want to know what is the highest fps, median and 0.1% low. Is it possible to do from YAAB results? Sorry if i dont understand the benchmark results properly, but it would do with a little explanation of how YAAB is calculated.
  10. so what we are saying.......... no pc is gonna get to 60 fps in arma 3 unless you want to buy high end cpu and overclock it until it bleeds! I think its the case then that you can spend thousands on a high end pc but gain little fps compared to a mid range pc. Essentially the GPU does nothing to add to the performance of ARMA 3. So if you want to play ARMA 3, just buy a mid range gpu (used) and buy a high end cpu and overclock it to hell!
  11. Oldbear, Interesting reply. Something that is annoying me is that my 10 year old pc is giving maybe 10/20% less fps than what you found in YAAB, so my question is what the hell is going on with ARMA 3!! Why arent we seeing 100+ fps by now? What is the limit here? Engine? So i need to know is ARMA 3 a lost cause for performance, any PC will just not get past 100fps mark ?
  12. I need a quick answer as i want to buy a new pc (just for arma mainly lol) probably too complex but anyway..... I need to know what type of RAM to get, what frequency to run and timings......... It needs to be good bang for buck........ i am going with Ryzen 3600/3600x as a CPU choice What will perform better fps wise in ARMA 3 right now? 3600 CL17 or 3200 CL16 or 3200 CL14? Anyone have links to kind of RAM they recommend? What will 32GB Ram do compared to 16GB? Is there a need for 32GB ram in ARMA3? I have a feeling, regardless of CPU, GPU that ARMA 3 still needs good ram speeds to work efficiently......... and this is where i struggle as there arent many ARMA 3 ram benchmarks for Ryzen 3000 🙂 Thanks.

    I am sure if BI isnt working full time on ARMA 4 right now, i could use a VR DLC 🙂 I would happily pay full price for it......... if it works properly and all........ i wouldnt even mind an ARMA 3 lite or something with VR......... a limited map or something with arma 3 stuffs but small scale.........
  14. Well, i felt it was necessary to carry out this Poll out of general interest 🧐 Its probably going to be a bit biased because since ARMA 3 went on steam, i think only the ARMA veterans are on this forum anyway......... but prove me wrong ! haha....

    Ah, i didnt really make clear. i meant tell me a limitation in terms of experience in ARMA 3 if proper VR was implemented? I can think of none!
