    ArmA 3 Performance Tweaks and Settings Guide

    This might help people with settings / keybinding problems: Make sure Arma is NOT running Go to C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\ProfileName Rename file ProfileName.Arma3Profile to ProfileName.Arma3Profile.BAK All gameplay settings / keybindings will be reset to defaults For display problems go to: C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arma 3 Delete/rename file Arma3.cfg This resets all display parameters to defaults ---------------------------------------------------------- Bodies melting into ground is set by mission maker (Might be parameters available when starting the mission) Throwing grenades is a pain and hopefully will be improved in future. Can't prevent clipping at the moment. ---------------------------------------------------------- This sounds like your HD might be struggling. Make sure its defraged. I have heard of this happening to others but I don't know what the outcome was. (Best to keep searching and you should find related threads) Try reducing TextureDetail to see if that helps. (If it does then you need faster HD)
  2. I'll have to test this. It would be really crap if you can't host a small internet/LAN game directly from the server menu like we used to. BIS have never been good with their network code. (I remember trying to play OperationFlashoint:CWC on LAN at my old office but it never worked)
  3. Hmm, I've never had a problem seeing a marker when looking straight at it. Not sure if this will help but markers do fade away on some difficulty settings. Go in and out of map or press Esc twice to refresh them...

    Mighty GAU-8/A Avenger

    Excellent and very required mod. Its crazy how weak the vanilla GAU8 is. Looking at the demo video the only thing I would suggest is to reduce the dust and add more particles/sparks instead.

    If only that were true :P

    Who else would like to see more drones?

    Nope. ARMA is meant to be an infantry-centric game. Drones just turn it into a point and click RPG style. I'm not against that if that's how you want to play but I don't think the devs should spend time/money in that area.
  7. Private passworded servers are the easy option for groups / clans who play together regularly and 'recruit' new players but public servers are needed to introduce new players to online gameplay so they can get a taste of what's possible. If they have a good experience and get help from other players they will be more likely to join a clan and play regularly.
  8. Good to hear. This should mean the dicks will die out eventually
  9. Try with these params only: -nosplash -nologs -skipintro -world=empty Don't worry what fps you get in the menu. (It may be capped to stop the GPU overheating) Try a SP mission if you can remember what it was before. Also make a copy somewhere then delete your startup file.
  10. To be clear: 6 core will have absolutely NO advantage over 4 core. ARMA does NOT recognize more than 4 cores. Clock speed is more important. Match Ram speed to max BUS speed. (No point having super fast ram that has to run slower) Multiplayer is still bottlenecked by (poor) net code so no matter how powerful your system is it will not play as smoothly as single player.
  11. Absolutely there should be parameters for this in the editor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Add radio clicks to in-game radio channels. Perhaps a simpler version of ACRE / TaskForceRadio
  13. They're all winners! Thanks to them so are all ARMA players :D

    Bussiness model compared to EA

    Reading this thread made me think of the history of BIS and ARMA so this may be interesting for the newer players. The of ARMAMarek do you remember ;)

    Arma 3 - Marksmen DLC Developer Diaries

    I hope there's a definite distinction between 'resting' and 'deployed' otherwise bipods won't be worth using. Doesn't seem like enough recoil hip-firing the machine guns...

    What game features would you pay money for?

    I'd like a DLC of all ARMA2 assets (maps, weapons, vehicles, aircraft) updated to A3 configs. I know most of this is possible with mods but being an official DLC would be better.

    ArmA 3 Crashes

    The first obvious question is: Does this problem still happen without mods? Computer specs... I'm guessing you don't know much about computers if you can't try obvious things or supply basic info to solve your problem. DiogoSalent... not even bother

    dafuq happened with 1.40??

    Strange, it seems a bit better for a friend and I. With mods? Try different memory allocator (Look up 'maloc' startup parameter)
  20. Sorry to say that your expectations are not realistic then 30-40 fps is actually very good especially given your specs. Don't compare to other games. We can all agree that ARMA is not the best optimized but its also the biggest and most complex so lets just hope BiS can squeeze a few more fps given time. (update 1.4 made it a bit better) Your settings look ok. I would suggest shadows up to HIGH to switch them to GPU. (Low uses CPU) Try texture detail on HIGH. VERY HIGH needs 2Gb card. Also check graphics driver settings in windows. (I have Nvidia so can't help u there)

    The New Sounds are Pretty Good.

    I agree that new sounds are much better and I've stopped using JSRS and SOS (tried both) I just hope new environmental effects don't go too far so it doesn't sound like being in a tin can.
  23. What about changing colour of the weapon name (top right)? No further UI clutter just change to green or blue when rested

    Core features Arma 4 must have

    Of course BIS bought it to prevent anyone else buying it and then charging a fortune for BIS to buy it from them IF they ever wanted it. As for discussing ARMA 4 core features................
  25. I also had to disable the large page registry entry. Thanks for info. I now have about 10 fps less than before :(
