  1. My Arma 3 always crashes too. It's normal. It's not a very stable game at all. I would recommend you to use some commandlines. Try these ones:

    -nologs -winxp -nobenchmark -windowed -nosplash -world=empty

    I am using these ones and my game is not crashing frequently. Without the commandlines, it used to crash each one hour of gameplay. Now, I can play more than 3 hours without a single freeze (only on windowed mode, by the way).

    Also, try to play only lightweight missions. Heavy missions, with tonnes of scripts, are used to crash sometimes, because they request a lot more of your processor.

    Good luck ^^

  2. And is the cheating trouble solved? I guess than not. Even the most secure anti-cheats like VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) aren't working well. Let's imagine this way: you share your account with a friend, and he cheats in your Arma 3. You get a BattlEye ban and can't play A3, A2 or DayZ. Is it nice? Guess than not. And let's imagine you also have some VALVe titles like Counter-Strike and Team Fortress 2. And he used cheats on these two ones. More VAC bans. It's not nice.

    I'd prefer to buy the game for my friend as a gift rather than simply borrowing my games and running this big risk.

  3. Well, unfortunately the result wasn't as good as I was initially expecting. First of all, the minimum HDR is 8. It's impossible to turn it off (WHY, BOHEMIA? WHY? WHYYYYY? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?). Now I am a bit frustrated. I was expecting to get more than 1K hours in Arma 3, but it crashes almost everytime. I can get solid 30-40 fps in singleplayer, but it drops a lot while in multiplayer mode. I am really sad now. I expected more of BI team at all. I guess than I'll buy Operation Flashpoint (yeah, dat Codemasters bullshit), 'cuz it's optimized and runs great here (yeah, it sucks, but at least runs here).

    Really sad.

    Time to go back to CSGO

  4. I like both, but no one plays A2 anymore. Then, I need to prefer Arma 3. But, in fact, I love both the same way. Arma 2 is the best one for a great and immersive single player experience. But Arma 3 does more than great in the multiplayer, bringing something very addicting. The only big problem of A3 is the MP optimization itself. If you get 40-50 fps in the campaign, you'll get less than 20 frames in the mp. Sad but true.

  5. I am having lots of troubles with my Arma 3, actually. As I saw on You Tube, Arma 3 Early Alpha could get more than 35 fps on ULTRA Settings with 4 GB of RAM, Intel i5 3210M and Intel HD 4000 (I have the same hardware). In this recent version, I get only 38 fps on "almost low" settings: Textures, Vegatation and Objects on high, shadows off and anything else on low. It makes me sad, because Arma 3 is a very sexy game and I am wondering when I'll be able to play it with an acceptable look. I don't want much. I only want to get 30fps+ on single player with shadows enabled.

    And what about improving the multiplayer? I have huge fps drops! From 30-35 fps to 5-10 fps. It's insane. No one game acts like it.

    I paid a lot for this game, and I expect to be able to play it. My computer is inside the minimum requirements, then, I guess it really NEEDS to run. Otherwise, I'll need to ask for a refund, 'cuz I bought it because of the minimum requirements.

    EDIT: While configuring my game, I found this:


    I am thinking about changing it to 0. Should it disable HDR effects, then?

  6. hello, i have a notebook. the notebook is a Aspire V5-573PG. the specs are:

    - windows 8.1 64-bit

    - Intel Core i5-4200U 1.6 GHz with turbo Boost up to 2.6 GHz (2 core processor)

    - 8 GB DDR3 L Memory

    - Nvidia Geforce GT 750M with 4 GB Dedicated VRAM

    - 1000GB HDD

    i play mostly singleplayer.

    could my notebook run ArmA 3 fine in singleplayer ?

    Of course! I would bet you should run it on medium/high or something closer to it.

  7. Most likley.

    If you have a notebook (laptop) computer, I strongly suggest you do not overclock.

    Some people are experienced at overclocking laptops/notebooks, but overall it is usually somthing that leads to too much high temperatures and such.

    You do not really have a sufficent computer to run it properly, but overclocking is probably just going to mess up your notebook, especially since you live in a place like Brasil, I know it can be very warm there. Just the outside temperature affects laptops alot, that+overclock=ded laptop, and I know how expensive computers are where you live so yeah...

    Well, I downloaded the game some days ago and I got 35-40 FPS on singleplayer. Multiplayers works well, but sometimes the screen freezes, and I need to Ctrl Alt Del and Log Off, and then Log On again. It only happens on MP, by the way.

    Is there any commandline to increase the performance or something like it?

    ArmA 3 on lowest graphics is very ugly :(

  8. I agree about the graphics. on lower quality settings Arma 3 looks like ass. even shit like GTA 4 or Titanfall looks better on my machine. I also get artifacts sometimes (but that could be my gfx card overheating)

    I hope BI will optimize ArmA 3, or at least make the LOW look a bit better. Because the Arma 3's low graphics looks like PSOne and it keeps very laggy. It's impossible to understand.

  9. If you enjoy hardcore Mil Sim, ArmA 2 is the best one for you because of ACE and the vast content. ArmA 3 is poorly optimized yet. As I always say, ArmA 3 is for who owns a pretty awesome computer. The graphics below highest settings are horrible. My notebook isn't strong, so I only can run A3 on lowest specs. The game on low seems like a PS2 game or whatever. Games like Far Cry 3 and Dead Island keep beautiful even on low.

    I prefer to play A2, because even on medium the graphics are better than A3 on low/medium.

    But, if you have money, upgrade your pc and run A3 on ultra. Then, you won't need to think about buying A2.

  10. Awesome mod, dude! I bought ArmA 3 exactly because of the huge amount of brazilian mods for it. And then I came back to the BI forums and saw this wonderful one. Perfect mod as I can see. I am going to download ArmA 3 tomorrow, and the first thing I'll do is proceed with the installation of your mod. A great job, for sure!

    I am brazilian too and a huge fan of your work.

    Awesome ;)

  11. I'm pretty sure this is a bug caused by the camo faces. We liked the russian camo faces, but for some reason the face type overrides the language you give the soldiers. They should all use BAF voices, but the ones with camo speak russian because of their face paint. It must seep into the soldiers brains or something. If it really bothers you just change the config to not use the camo faces.

    And how can I change it?

    I am a bit bored of sounds like "Duminata Papali" or something like it. It really kills the immersion in the game.

    But the textures at all are awesome! You did a great job with the models!
