  1. yes , you should be able to run high, MP FPS will vary depending on server and mission.
  2. we had this happen last night, our player said none of the bodies had an ammo, it turns out when he checked there inventory under ALL he was not scrolling to the bottom of the window where the backpack and harness? was where you can drag the whole item or click on it (has a right facing arrow) to open it and see the contents.
  3. systems specs please, is your pad/keyboard though a USB connection?
  4. maybe not...star trek here we come http://www.army.mil/article/109049/ here is an article showing the 5 candidates one of them uses a 6.8 and one of the others comes in 7.62 and 5.56 http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-205_162-10006737.html who really knows what 2035 will bring...maybe will see the first T1000 ,i feel sorry for any one named sarah conner :) I mean look at all the unmanned stuff we are using now.
  5. do you get the exact same behavior if you set lower and higher view/object?

    My first try at modelling

    keep going mate , practice makes perfect :)
  8. did they really say "phenomenally"? i personally just thought it was fabulously optimized...but wow its higher than i thought :P ---------- Post added at 00:22 ---------- Previous post was at 00:21 ---------- no, do what you are going to do irrelevant to the state of arma. ---------- Post added at 00:39 ---------- Previous post was at 00:22 ---------- ok I just went and looked at the techspot review and have to call BS, they are bench marking CPU performance using a GTX titan...there is a FX 4100 getting 43 FPS on ultra.....how many people put a $1000 video card with a $100 CPU? please raise your hand if that's your rig because we will dispatch the clean young men in clean whites to pick you up :)
  9. Are you hear hearing the plug/unplug sound windows making when using a USB device for no reason?
  10. If you are going to upgrade do not do it just for arma, that being said your best beT will be a ivy/haswell quad core win7-64 8GB of ram, at least a 660 (or equivalent) and a decent SSD.
  11. 10ghz? WOW very nice , are you running an after market cooler? ;) ---------- Post added at 02:03 ---------- Previous post was at 01:59 ---------- look at my sig, the 660 does fine :) but the real punch comes from an I5 or higher, when i am on line (like tonight) playing invade the annex and my view distance set to 3600 on the ground and 6000 in the air I get 25-35 FPS ...not the best but still playable :)

    Takedown: Red Sabre

    I detest the direction the game industry is going and at this point I will NOT pre-order,early access, digital deluxe....etc, buying part of a game and then being sold the rest in DLC is BS. I find it amazing that so many people buy into this which just devolves the quality and depth of a lot of future release if all they have to do is repackage the same old game and sell it to you again complete with bugs. sadly i think that most of the people who buying into this are impressionable and naive kids who watch the over blown videos and hear all the hype and cant resist the next shiny thing that go's BOOM!
  16. and what is your performance online in servers over 50 like invade annex and other PvP game modes? minus wasteland/altis life etc
  17. I spent yesterday formulating a direct but respectful series of questions for Mr Murak about the performance issues and future of the franchise that i was going to post. then i see a link to his discussion in the nvidea thread and in his first post he puts up a link to which I check out. http://www.bistudio.com/english/company/developers-blog/91-real-virtuality-going-multicore I have alway know there was no magic bullet coming but i was hoping for something, the only thing that can be done is already known and that would be a major rewrite, they did no start it 4 years ago and its obvious they are not going to now. As i said before it is what it is and any further discussion is pointless...there is no magic patch coming to unlock your systems potential.
