hi,
i have heavy fps issues at playing Takistan Life: Revolution or DayZ.

What i got:

Acer Aspire 8930G with:
- Win7 Enterprise 32-Bit
- Intel Core 2Duo P8400 (2x 2.26)
- NVidia GeForce 9600M GT
- 4-GB RAM

what ive done so far:
- changing some things in cfg and profile cfg
- Defrag of whole Computer
- Gamebooster 3
- cleaning Registry
- turn off everything (including AntiVir)
- very low Settings with a bit increased resolution

in DayZ ive got 10 - 20 FPS in Landscape and constant 13 in Towns
in Takistan Life it is a bit lower.
Maybe someone can help me here. I thought about switching to 64-Bit, reinstalling Win7
or my GPUs Shared Memory is messing around...

Thanks

Leeee

I don't think you'll be gaining that much by switching to 64-bit Win7.

I'm pretty sure your GPU could do with an update if you want to run everything perfectly, the CPU should do fine for medium-range settings.

Now, what you need to do is to NOT run everything on the lowest settings. Arma is very poorly optimized, and you may be getting better FPS at higher settings. Turn of Anti Aliasing and post-processing, though, as those are very heavy on performance in Arma. If you want AA, A.C.E. has a great AA system that isn't nearly as heavy on FPS.

If it doesn't help you, there's no more I can do.

Hello Leeee, have you tried running ArmA with the following line for the exe
-noSplash -noFilePatching -winxp -maxmen=2047 -cpuCount=2 -world=empty"
I too used to have FPS issues and tweaked the Options menu, but could never get it right. Then I read on this forum that ArmA would load and play better if the following line was added to the exe. Give it a go and see what results you get.

So has this helped?
Just checked the spec of your PC, I have a very similar machine, only duel core 2.6, but my OS is 64bit plus I have an ATI 5770 GPU card, since using the parameters in the startup of the game I don't really have that many issues with performance. I will be upgrading but not until next year to probably an i5 CPU or AMD, not really sure yet.

Lowering your native resolution (1920 x 1080) a step or two down with the interface/3D resolutions settings as you have done should have increased your overall framerate by making sure that your 9600M GT isn't bottlenecking the works. Have you run the game (and Benchmarks) at the Default settings to get an A/B comparison with your edited settings?

You're on to a good idea with using the GPUs TurboCache to increase the shared memory feature it employs, but don't get greedy, try a 512MB increase and see if it helps.

Same goes for the system tuning/cleaning.

Create a unique Profile within NVIDIA Control Panel For ArmA II* and edit all features that allow for it to "Application-controlled" and then make your ingame setting changes in the games Advanced Video Options.

Be realistic about just how much performance you can reasonably expect out of that 4-5 year old system.

Whatever changes or tweaks you have to make in order to play the game online one thing you should never-ever disable is your Anti-Virus Suite, no matter what server you choose to use.

sorry i dont understand all you say.
first my native resolution is 1680x945... and you say i should decrease my Systems native Resolution to the value of my resolution in Arma?
second one with the default.... so switching all options to default and then compare every single option?
i did not change anything with the shared memory... dont know how. you think i can do something there? so more GPU, but less RAM?

Thank you ;)


edit: i used this guide:
and witch exe should i edit in NVidia options? arma2.exe or arma2OA.exe?

Use Arma2OA, its the most uptodate version.

Hi,
What do you have for a power supply, as for example, I have a single core cpu, 2g ram, a 750watt psu, Geforce gtx 285, and I really have no issues with the game, I found that 500watt and lower will lag your game as theres not enough power to support.
