I recently bought Arma 2 and the game lags the same on low and high sttings. I have Windows 7, AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+, Nvidia 9400 1Gb graphics card and 6 Gbs of RAM. Also it is a clean install of Windows 7. Any help would be appreciated, it seems like it should run good on at least low.
(AppData is a hidden folder, you need to go to 'Organise', 'folder&search options', 'view' and click the button for 'view hidden files and folders')
The report file should give you a clue. - Sometimes bad scripts can cause the game to slow - also I remember having the same issue with ARMA, it turned out my PSU didn't have enough wattage to run my processor and graphic card whilst playing ARMA, I had to upgrade to a 800w power supply- well, that's my two penneth, good luck sorting it out
Pretty hard to suggest a tweak without knowing your baseline settings, but you can start by setting the Quality Pref to Normal and then selecting Default, create a benchmark (FPS, proc load, thermal, etc.,) and adjust from there.
Mid to High values for View Distance and Post-Process will overload the bandwidth of that GeForce 9400 really quick, so beware.
Thanks guys. As far as my settings go everything is turned all the way down. Even visibility is set to 0. I know I need a new power supply so that will be my next step. It just seems weird that no matter the setting the lag is the same. When I run the benchmark I get around 15 fps no matter how it is set up.
