    Congrats BO1 on the upcoming DLC. It's been a little while but I think I'll have a reson to devote some days to Arma again soon. Thank you.

    Community Upgrade Project - CUP

    Oh now that is sweet! This really has me inspired to bring my Mi24-A Krokodil over to A3. And CUPs documentation looks like it could really help in this regard, unfortunately I'd still need to find the time. That frigate interior is also looking top notch. Keep up the good work CUP!

    Infinity Battlescape

    The graphics and the art style is actually one of things that appeal to me. Not only do I like the style but the level of fidelity may actually be friendly for hobby level modding. Modding for other recent space games are either 'out of bounds' or in the case of Star Citizen require too much work. Besides pretty isn't so important in a dog fight and Star Citizen doesn't do atmo' yet. And both Elite and Star Citizen have issues with their idea of Newtonian flight models which this game appears to have avoided. Most of all I appreciate the game play premise, basically CTI over a whole solar system. Mind blowing compared to ArmA geography, yet intimate compared to Start Citizen or Elite. I hope it does well

    Australia Version 5.09 Release

    Had a chance to look now, awsome work! Get a 'cannot load texture color_00.paa' and noticed some road miss alignment, a 'T' section, and a building sunk into the ground about 1 meter at Melbourne Airport, both @ grid 115.308. Been having too much flying about to notice anything else

    Australia Version 5.09 Release

    Congrats on the release mate. So good to see this finally released. Cant wait to get home tonight and check it out.
  9. Got in while it was still on kickstarter and never believed it would gain this sort of momentum. 60mil is a crazy arse figure. I put it down to the fact that there was a starving market out there just begging for some one of Chris Roberts talent to make a game for them. And I'm not really seeing any real feature creep that makes me think think the project will fail. They never put a timeline or order on the features and they seem to be going for engine features and the SP campagain first and expanding the public universe later, as they should. Also looking how the last few million has only promised a ship a piece, it seems they are keeping plenty in the kitty for contingencies. I actualy went and saw the FPS reveal live, those sorts of things dont happen in my neck of the woods very often. The FPS stuff itself was a bit,,,, um how you say WIP but CIG have always made a piont of keeping its community informed, so the early state isn't that surprising. I noticed the guys from Illfonic mentioned ArmA and Delta Force amonst thier inspiration, as well as a Farcry3 style cover system so I'm confident they are aiming higher than the recent presenation. Pretty sure its just a matter of time before we see a solid shooter aspect. Reality is, they have untill the SQ42 release to get it right and thats still about a year out. WIth such a gorgous spaceship component already inplace, the promise of an expanded 64bit cryengine, SP campaign alone is enough to get me rezed.

    The decline of Italian performance in war

    Depends if the Knight had a lance.....Actualy no.... the knight probably wins with his steel fist because we all know that western knights are related to C.N. Considering the nature of the conversation I'd say a great first post. Welcome!

    Bohemia Interactive's ambitions are always set too high.

    Good question and good points. Though my initial target your thinking of was 40-50fps Give me a moment and I'll post up some specs, and settings etc. Edit. BTW I’ve never said anything about the game running perfectly. I’ve said that I’ve seen A3 utilize some of the resources others state it doesn’t. And that I can get playable frames but I have issues with MP. I’ve never passed any quality comment or judgement. Mostly because I felt the thread was too far gone to bother, not to mention the poor opener. In terms of my personal preference for frame rates I think 40-50 frames is quite acceptable and would be my preference, more is always good but 60 is probably a bit ambitious. In all honesty I only notice a bit of graininess when I pivot quickly @ 25-30 frames. @ 20-25 frames there’s a sharpness to the run and things start becoming unbearable. So to a point, and this applies to A3 only, if I had no fps counter to watch I’d probably be OK with dips to 30fps. Others have commented on this before. Anecdotally, I think other games can still be prone to spikes even when at reasonably high frames that get worse as they go down while A3 is still a pretty smooth and consistent delivery at lower frames. In terms of seeing it utilise multi core CPUs and SLI. I can see why there may be some confusion here. If I was to throw a few units down in editor or stick to stock Dom/Evo multiplayer then I would probably only see ArmA leaning on the first core while my remaining 5 cores bubbled along @10-15%. If I start getting around 100 AI down in editor then I I’ll notice A3 leaning on at least 3 cores. Interestingly it s in the SP campaign that I see the most consistent use of the resources. It still fluctuates as the engine sees fit but there is more regular use of at least 3 cores and I notice my GPU’s hitting 90% plus during cut scenes or night operations utilising dynamic lights. It seems the point isn’t so much that the engine doesn’t use them, but how and when. Its seems to me that BIS may have left a bit of head room on those resources for particular tasks. Tasks that maybe the general multiplayer and mission designer don’t address. My specs Asus Sabretooth P77, I7- 3930k, Win7, GTX690, OS and game running on separate SSDs , 3x 27 inch monitors and a 24 inch accessory screen My settings My frames SP campaign. In the early stages of the second episode I noticed 32-50 frames but mostly sitting comfortable in the low to mid 40 most of the time. A satisfactory result MP, a standard Dom, tonight ping around 32 I was seeing 35-22 frames. A problem, definately. But I find the worst moments are generally short lived so I’ll still play MP if I don’t have a fps counter to watch. Editor 1 – Opfor and Blufor with 2 infantry squads each totalling 32 AI set to search and destroy in the centre of the large town Neochori. Me as a civ trying to stay as close to action as possible but alive. 30-40 frames. Not great but like I said if wasn’t watching the counter I’d probably be happily playing, none the wiser. Editor 2 – Opfor and Blufor with 2 inf squads, 1 mech team , and 1 Armour section each . Set to search and destroy in the centre of the large town Neochori. Me as a civ trying to stay as close to action as possible but alive. 21-30 frames. Yeh, bit on the nose , the same group of units on the salt flats yielded 35 -45 frames. Editor 3 – Opfor and Blufor with 4 inf squads, 2 mech teams , and 2 Armour sections each . Set to search and destroy in the centre of the large town Neochori. Me as a civ trying to stay as close to action as possible but alive. 19-27 frames. Not much to say about that final one really. But it kind of brought home to me the thread title and the OP. And made me wonder if BIS wasn’t so ambitious would I have a sandbox made by any other where I could slap down hundreds of units just to see what would happen. I don’t really know if the OPs condition is particularly common and I’d be interested to know if people with this kind of issue are in some heightened state of anxiety. Decades of martial arts and and fencing have taught me a few things about myself and my vision. Under stress the mind is capable of prioritising vision to the point that it overrides the processing delay, people will report that they saw a person’s mouth move before they heard the speech, being able to process visual nuances they wouldn’t normally notice and the like. Fascinating stuff. But is his condition really enough to warrant an accusation of excessive ambition by BIS, and what followed in the rest of this thread. I don’t think so. As for A3 performing poorly or not I’m still inclined to look at each side with a degree of scepticism. Because its such a large ambitious sand box it truly is a case by degrees and circumstance, for example, just how many AI should be considered enough. Though there’s no doubt that MP still has way to come.

    Me sensitive, not at all but, I was trying air some thoughts and see what comes back. But if your going to level accusations at me for being vague. Maybe we should also look at the tone of this entire thread . Consider how throwing provocative remarks about, deliberately not accepting peoples explanations, and not addressing specs and settings only muddies the waters and makes this whole thread a mess of finger pointing and disconnected ideas. There is no search in this discussion, just a belief that there is a right a wrong. So its not a discussion, and hasn't been since the first post. It just aimless argument. My mention of MP was coming from standpoint of someone who does see A3 utilising all hardware as it should (not as some techno rev head who wants all his lights on) and pinpointing MP as the ONLY issue from my stand point. In my view that should be BISs priority. And all this 'i know MP is not "the game" for you but yea....' is reading too much into it because you don't know shit about my game play habits. This 'you know what I mean' is reading too much into it because I don't This about telling me what I wrote means ,in a different way is pointless because the translation isn't what I wrote. And that's reading too much into it. Maybe what ever you do in your life will give you plenty of time to chew that bone and pull it apart. But I've got other things to do and this is one day I'm not getting back. Maybe your reply will help buoy whoever still considers thread relevant. But now I really am going back to my sewing Chao

    Hey guys re read what I said. I was being speculative as is pretty much everything in this thread, and I don't feel guilty about it. I don't know why the series has always scaled the way it does. My point being that for whatever reason the precedent still stands. The nitpicking has me thinking my name sake belongs to someone else in this thread No one has disputed my other arguments, being: The argument in the original post and its titled are flawed. And his post is completely unproductive without settings. There was no reason to continue this thread, mimic the original post and churn it into a morass of unproductive whaaa And I don't see many of the issues that folk flippantly mention. I see A3 progressively utilise 6 cores as it requires it. I see SLI working well. I get playable frames on a triple head setup. And I like that I don't see A3 trying to over heat my system and burn out my hardware doing nothing. Like some other games do on so called 'optimised' engines (looking at you MWO). I do have fps issues with MP. But I don't see anything in the topic or original post, and very little since that points to MP at all. If you have issue with how A3 performs look for a thread that posts useful shit like specs and settings. And I'm sorry I got dragged into it. I'm going back to my sewing.

    Tat's what I said. BIS CANT do it. But from what I've heard from the horses mouth its not uncommon for devs to try and allow for wiggle room based on the direction of current tech. Just sometimes that direction doesn't take hold.
