So I just bought the first ArmA, and truly want to be an armaholic, haha :) Most of the single-player missions run well, but some are laggy.. My laptop specs are 2.20ghz Core 2 Duo, 4gb ram, Intel 4500M HD graphics.. Not the greatest system, but I would have bought a fresher ArmA if I thought I could handle it on this system :>

Trying to make it run as smoothly as possible, but I can't find any config text files except one with not many options in Documents (all I saw there that I'd seen in suggestions to change was color depth to 16, which didn't help much/at all)..

Anyway, what I'm looking for is any optimization guides or tips/tricks to get it to run smoother on older/weaker systems.. In-game I've got everything possible turned off or down and am running at a lower resolution as well.. Also, you guys have made literally tons of mods here and all the searches I launched (for both mods and guidance) failed :(

Are there any mods for low-res textures or AI optimization, or any mod at all for performance increases?? Any help at all is greatly appreciated!

Thanks very much for the response and I'll look into it right away :)

Edit: Was for Arma 2 optimizing, though it did point out that Arma 1 does, on some systems, run better with some settings higher than low, so I'll try that too :> Thats definitely the kind of thing I'm looking for, only for the original Arma (Gold Edition) :) Thanks for your time and help, again, either way! :)

EDIT2: Also, is Operation Flashpoint still for sale anywhere? And if not, is there a condoned legal way to get a copy?? Surely its not just evaporated! :> Just want a good tactical experience and doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get Arma Gold to run smoothly.. I noticed today that the trees are giving me severe lag and I get near perfect FPS away from them :| Searched like crazy for a tree-fix or low-res tree or less-trees mod and could find nothing :|
