    You've played to much Arma when:

    Your friends (who you played arma for like 7+ years) tell you ARMA 3 is not installed..........
  2. Hi All, I am wondering if someones working on implementing functioning VR within arma. I like arma how it is, but since 2001 there really hasn't been any changes to the game. After trying the free weekend of Onward i need to say that if this was re-done in arma 3 it would make me so happy :). I know a member named NeoArmageddon was working on experimental VR and it looked to be very interesting. However it appeared that he implied it was a difficult task to do with arma 3. Anyone got an update or know of anyone trying to make it work?

    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!!
  6. Gunter mate.......... i love you man :) thats why i got ya on steam bud........... you are a credit to ARMA community....... really :)
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. @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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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 ?
  13. 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.

    Virtual Reality ARMA - Oculus/HTC Vive

    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.........
  15. 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!

    Virtual Reality ARMA - Oculus/HTC Vive

    Just wanted to update this thread. I did test VR in Arma 3 with the CV1 using Vorpx. I have to say it was actually pretty good, despite the limitations of the engine. The only one main negative thing (which is probably a current issue) is the screen door effect (SDE) and issues when trying to see things from long distances....... at the moment its just not clear enough......... Hopefully soon we should get a capable VR kit that will eliminate the SDE entirely, so that we can actually see as far as real life. At the moment i dont care if we cant 'fully' use VR in arma 3. I know theres engine limitations, but at least having the thing working natively (with battleye) from a visual perspective is sufficient for me. Actually flying helicopters and jets with the joystick and using the VR headset is actually quite immersive (ok its not DCS simulator level, but sufficient for this game). If BI released a VR dlc, i would probably buy it lol! I think the demand is still pretty low generally, and the industry is still maturing. No companies want to invest in a system as yet which would bring a lot of risk. I think we are still not quite there, but if we are to get VR working we need all the indie devs and modders to really pull some amazing stuff off. Its coming, but it will take time. I can just think of the possibilities of VR in arma 3 though! Its actually endless! Now we have proper mods and Zeus, you can basically do whatever you want! If anyone can think of a limitation in arma 3 + VR right now let me know 🙂 I am pretty sure you cant because i am convinced everything and anything can be done in ARMA now.

    Virtual Reality ARMA - Oculus/HTC Vive

    if u read the start of this forum there was a guy who was doing exactly that......... but i dont know i think he just gave up which is a shame
  19. Guys just a couple of questions for both faces of war/ IFA3/Ironfront. Will British be getting anti air like bofors? Is there plans for more terrains? I want to have more desert maps if possible? Can more light tanks be added? Thanks.
  20. Hello, I am new with mission making although i played all ARMA series since OFP in 2001 (yes long time). I want to know what people do when they save their arma 3 scenarios from the editor. I have spent a lot of time making my missions so i want to know if there is a way to backup the missions somewhere and how people go about doing it? What is the process? Thanks.

    I can imagine the future of ARMA 4 with VR support. Just imagine for a second u have a backpack, u can drop it from your shoulder and open it and pick stuff up like magazines, first aid kit, epipens etc. Same with compass/map just pick it up and hold it to your face to see whats going on :) Your watch you can move your arms to ur face to tell the time. I still think VR Is the way forward, despite its difficulties! We have had over 17 years since OFP in 2001 of the same old same old better graphics game. It is time for new change!!

    Steam Workshop

    Hello All, I've recently installed arma 3 on my new laptop, however the workshop auto downloads all the subscribed mods on my pc...... This means that it is overloading my laptops ssd...... Is there a way to: A. Stop the workshop downloading the mods? B. Download the mods on the laptop to another drive? C. Any other suggestions?
  23. Guys....... can i just ask....... when you're making missions either as Zeus or in the editor, does the unit size count against lower fps? For example..... lets say i spawn 30 1 unit squads vs 5x6 unit squads? would this have an effect on the performance? which will have worse performance? Thanks :)
  24. Thanks madshepherd. I managed to find a pegasus bridge template on the workshop for the merderet terrain. Just gotta tweak it now and all should be good :) Thanks !!
