    Input lag

    Perfectly explained.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxu2YQ29CLA
  2. Or just use windows 7 and pray the GNU/Linux port gets more updates in the future...
  3. I really hope this nice project keeps updated and patch. Really great work!

    Arma 3 being upgrade to 64 bit

    Explain that. I often got the feeling, that most people think: "Just use 64 bit - It makes everything better ". Adressing more memory? Great. I got that. But how would a "64 bit netcode" help SO much?

    Arma 3 Linux Version ?

    Well, thats a first step. Lucky penguins, steamos is pushing more developers to offer linux ports. first steps first - still a long way to go. i did not check recently - but linux on steam has less then 2%. I really hope this will change asap.
  6. Hi all, I got a mod running on windows servers. Now I tried to get it working under linux. I changed all addons to lower case, like all howtos advise. It seems to be a problem loading addons. On the windows box I can see this: 1:57:02 addons\a3.pbo - unknown 21:57:02 addons\air_f.pbo - 86838 21:57:02 addons\air_f_beta.pbo - 86965 21:57:02 addons\air_f_epb.pbo - 86810 21:57:02 addons\air_f_epc.pbo - 87002 21:57:02 addons\air_f_gamma.pbo - 86988 21:57:02 addons\animals_f.pbo - 86114 21:57:02 addons\animals_f_beta.pbo - 86442 21:57:02 addons\anims_f.pbo - 86793 21:57:02 addons\anims_f_bootcamp.pbo - 72362 21:57:02 addons\anims_f_data.pbo - 85891 21:57:02 addons\anims_f_epa.pbo - 78608 21:57:02 addons\anims_f_epc.pbo - 72362 21:57:02 addons\armor_f.pbo - 82564 21:57:02 addons\armor_f_beta.pbo - 86856 21:57:02 addons\armor_f_epb.pbo - 86110 21:57:02 addons\armor_f_epc.pbo - 86840 21:57:02 addons\armor_f_gamma.pbo - 86121 21:57:02 addons\baseconfig_f.pbo - 73106 21:57:02 addons\boat_f.pbo - 86857 21:57:02 addons\boat_f_beta.pbo - 83805 21:57:02 addons\boat_f_epc.pbo - 82564 21:57:02 addons\boat_f_gamma.pbo - 85687 21:57:02 addons\cargoposes_f.pbo - 86243 21:57:02 addons\characters_f.pbo - 86837 21:57:02 addons\characters_f_beta.pbo - 86837 21:57:02 addons\characters_f_bootcamp.pbo - 86933 21:57:02 addons\characters_f_epa.pbo - 83523 21:57:02 addons\characters_f_epb.pbo - 85686 etc. I just picked a few lines of many. The linux server does not have this lines. In the mission.sqm I have these lines: addOns[]= { "A3_Characters_F_Civil", "a3_characters_f", "a3_map_altis", "A3_Characters_F_BLUFOR", "A3_Structures_F_Mil_Helipads", "A3_Air_F_Heli_Heli_Transport_03", "A3_Soft_F_Quadbike", "A3_Modules_F_Multiplayer", "ZodiacCRRC", "A3_Boat_F_Boat_Transport_01", "a3_boat_f_beta_boat_transport_01", "A3_Boat_F_Beta_Boat_Armed_01", "oh_boats" }; addOnsAuto[]= { "A3_Characters_F_Civil", "a3_characters_f", "A3_Modules_F_Multiplayer", "A3_Structures_F_Mil_Helipads", "A3_Soft_F_Quadbike", "a3_map_altis" }; Works fine for windows - but it seems like linux needs a different way?

All good. I`ll provide anything you need to help me out - but after 2 days of google and try&error, it would be really great to get some help. Thanks in advance, Nik
  7. Dedmen in the chat gave to tip: use a .pbo in the mpmissions folder. <3

    Low CPU utilization & Low FPS

    I doubt posting 500 pages here will help more then the existing 200 pages. The problems seem to be clearly engine related - and do some of you really think, BI will rewrite the engine? Smaller changes have been made, smaller things may and will happen. But I bet that`s all. So help yourself, enjoy Arma 3 as it is - or quit playing it. There are tons of alternatives... oh wait - there`s none. It`s a matter of sink or swim. <_<

    Saitek Pedals in Arma 3 with AFM

    I had CH flight pedals before - and after they broke, I bought that Saitek Pedals. They do look like cheap plastic crap - but they are by far better as the CH pedals, which was "the reference" for many years. No worrys, go for them.

    ArmA3Mark - Benchmark your ArmA 3

    Well, I got a normal full hd screen - but rendering at 200% is about that, what i want to do. looks so awesome, if render is at 200%.
  11. Hi all, anyone got nvidias 9xx series in SLI - and could tell me some benchmark results? I wonder how much gain there is, comparing single/SLI mode. Thanks in advance, Nik
  12. Optimising in general makes a lot of sense. But selling DLC seems to make even more sense :mad:
  13. Do you think this will ever happen? I don`t. ;(
  14. No matter how many devs - they should focus on that performance issues. asap.
  15. Good call, but after all the time - they do not even claim to fix the feedback they got. check the link of my signature. it`s really old now - and all we hear is like: "shiny new DCL!" I`m sick of new DLC. I want the "structured feedback" to be No. 1 for BI!

    ArmA3Mark - Benchmark your ArmA 3

    Any ETA or progress information? Got some 2nd GTX 970 and want to bench if it`s worth it - or if I should stick at one ;)

    Low CPU utilization & Low FPS

    I wonder if we will ever see this thread beeing obsolete. Performance issues can and will ruin lots of fun. So why do we get DLC like kart stuff(Was meant as a joke, once upon the time on some random 01.04.), if there are way bigger issues? If DLC stuff is not related to this problem, since different ppl are working on such things - I`d say the budget should be moved over to the "engine department" asap. http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=716 2421 votes at lets say in average (only)24 Euro... Thats 58104 Euros of paying customers to get this done. Well ppl like me do love the game, so we did not buy the solution of this bug - but how many ppl don`t even register at the tracker to vote/complain? I`d say more then 90+% of the customers do not vote in the tracker. How about a feature/content freeze, until #716 is fixed or at least improved? Kinda regards, Nik

    What is bottlenecking my PC?

    Well not true at all. You can get 40 FPS with mid-class hardware. Sure, you can`t max it out. But Arma3 looks decent on normal settings. I want to max it out, as good as I can. So this is expensive. It`s always the same: The last 15% doubles the price ;)

    Advanced Helicopter FDM Feedback

    Sorry, for me is shaking below Vne without exceeding g-forces limit a clear thing of the (Advanced)FM.

    What is bottlenecking my PC?

    Ups, I did not buy a 870, it`s a 970 of course ;) I can`t overclock my 660 TI any further without watercooling. The 970 is still not here, so I`ll have to wait. I really can`t wait for the first benchmark with the 970 and untouched settings.

    Firing from Vehicles feedback

    No, not related to camera shake. I had one mate sitting outside, when I took of he was suddenly standing outside of the helicopter, lagging up and down by desync, and finally destroyed the mainrotor as described.

    Advanced Helicopter FDM Feedback

    A copter should not shake in that way. It would break like seconds after such "visual" effect would occur. Besides the vmax of the copters are not even close to 180. Its more like 282 km/h. So why should that occur at 100km/h less? This needs to be fixed asap.

    ArmA3Mark - Benchmark your ArmA 3

    Helo, thanks for your benchmarks. Could you please make some newer version, maybe including 1st and 3rd person scenes to get some "up to date" benchmark? The 1st and 3rd scenes should give some information, how good it will be playable under real gaming circumstances. Thanks in advanced, Nik

    Advanced Helicopter FDM Feedback

    Heh, at least they take care of some better FM for Arma 3. The rest is BI speed, so just lean back ;)
