    Arma 3 BETA multiplayer FPS drop

    I've had to do a reinstall of my PC as my SSD crashed. Since the reinstall i can't play Arma 3 multiplayer because the FPS is below 15! PC spec i7 3770k 4.6ghz 8gb 1600 mhz ram 256 Plextor M5 Pro SSD GTX 780 So high end machine. Single player is no problem, 60+ fps! Anyone got a fix for multiplayer?
  2. Jason, i think you may need to format your PC and start again? I can help you out, just let me know.
  3. Hi all, Have a minor issue. When i reload my game it doesn't seem to hold the previous settings. My machine can run the game no problem on High, but it seems to reset to default when i quit and reload. Can anyone help? Thanks

    I haven't made any changes at all. Just a normal install.
  7. Guys, After playing Arma 2 and adjusting my settings to high, when i reload the game the next time around it sets them back to normal. Is there a way around this?

    After reading this thread, I think i'm gonna go for Win 7 on my new build. Every little bit i can squeeze outta Arma 2 the better!
  9. Is there any performance difference in ARMA 2 running win 7 over Vista?
  10. There is a down side to running Windows 7 RC...... Upgrading to a European edition of Windows 7 Available only in Europe, the Windows 7 E editions ship without Microsoft’s Internet Explorer built in. The web browser-less release, made available by Microsoft in an attempt to conform with EU law, doesn’t offer an in-place upgrade from any prior edition of Windows. Put simply, that means European consumers can’t perform an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 whatsoever. That also means that Microsoft won’t be offering Upgrade Editions of the software at European retail destinations. Instead, European customers will be treated to full Windows 7 E editions at upgrade prices. Despite the lack of a built-in browser, the Windows 7 E edition does carry one notable advantage. Being a full edition of Windows 7, it doesn’t offer in-place upgrades, but clean installations are available without the need for an existing, activated Windows operating systems. European users, then, can simply wipe a hard drive and install any version of Windows 7 E. Who’d have thought upgrading to a new operating system could be so complex?
  11. Just about to build my new pc and wondered if i should run arma 2 under Vista or Win 7?
  12. This has got to be a joke right?
  13. Oh i see is because you're running 1280 x 1024. Make sense now
  14. Really? What about a DX4 33mhz with a voodoo 3 16mb? Are you serious it works fine on a 9500gt?
  15. Sorry im a bit confused now.... With my new build should i run ARMA 2 under Win 7 or XP?
  16. Please can you confirm my expected FPS with my new build. (parts to go on order end of month) i7 920 2.66. - Probably clock to around 3.2 ish 3gb ram 1066 (is this enough?) 275 GX BFG 2484mhz Also.... How stable is the RC for gaming and with ARMA 2? Thanks guys

    Xbox controller Arma 2

    Hi guys, Has anyone tried using an Xbox controller for Arma 2? Is it even possible? I was wondering if i should buy a joystick or just plug my controller in? Thanks Squirrel

    thanks guys for your replies. I'll give it a go.
  19. Hi there, 1. Processor - Something like an entry level i7 would do fine. You can clock them well over 3ghz! 2. Depends on what res you'll be running. The game will be optimized at some point soon with a new update. Best card is probably 295 gtx but a 285 will do a good job. 3. Ram - 3gb would probably be fine tbh. 6gb would be great but not sure if i'll make much difference Let us know what res you're running and might be able to help you a bit better.
  20. Well i was gonna buy a 275. Do you think it's worth the extra cost in buyer the 285? Glad i came across this post now!
  21. Hi guys, I currently have a laptop which i know isn't good enough for ARMA 2. (Macbook Pro, 2.5, 4gb ram, 8600M 512mb) I'm debating building a pc or buying a Mac Pro. Mac Pro specs are... 4 core 2.66 Xeon or maybe 8 core 2.26 Xeon 3gb Ram or 6gb Ram EVGA 285 GTX 1gb I understand that ARMA hits the CPU pretty hard, but would i benefit from a Xeon CPU over building a i7 Quad rig? Thanks all
