YAAB: Yet Another Arma Benchmark


About 2.5 minutes long scripted intro for measuring your average FPS. Emphasis on AI fighting performance, bullets, and explosions.

The mission is very CPU heavy; you'll probably won't get much above 40 fps even on a high-end PC.

You can save up to 20 results. Useful for comparing performance between different game versions, system setups, game tweaks and mods.
Select multiple results with ctrl+mouse click to view their average score.

PLEASE NOTE: this isn't an exact scientific benchmark because of the AI. Its movement, shooting and other actions are inherently random, so every run is always a bit different. Expect about ±1 fps variance between runs. So if you intend to compare effects of some minor system/settings tweaks, they probably won't be visible with YAAB.

A small town with 40 AI soldiers in combat and the camera follows close.
Lots of fire, smoke, explosions, and gunfire!
Around 300 static objects + a goat.
Surprisingly consistent results (at least on my system), despite the random nature of Arma AI.
Up to 20 results can be saved. Useful when comparing the performance between different game versions, system tweaks and mods, for example. Saves a list of your running mods.
A short "preloading" sequence in the beginning to let the game load some of the assets to RAM before measuring. So you shouldn't have to run it twice to get better results.
The view distance is fixed to 1500m.

Extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/MPMissions folder.
Then go to Multiplayer->LAN and select the mission.

- Minor fixes for UI and mission
- You can now select multiple saved results with ctrl+mouse click to view their average score
- Press P in the beginning to set the view distances to "standard" test settings (VD 1600m, OVD 1300m).
The 1500m view distance is no longer forced by default.
- eliminated the big fps dop caused by the skipTime command. This was usually just single slow frame, so it doesn't change the result visibly.

Update v0.98 (06-06-2015)
- Totally reworked
- Added graph chart to display the FPS (not per each frame, but 0.20 second averages. Not very useful but it looks nice.)
- Saves the used mods in the results.
- More save slots.
- A tad longer duration.

Update v0.85 (06-02-2015)
- Minor fixes.
- Even more cinematic experience! (Expect 24 fps on an average PC)
- Slightly higher fps, so previous results shouldn't be compared.

Update v0.8 (24-01-2015)
- Added the second stage of benchmarking.
- A lot of small tweaks.

Version 0.5 (15-01-2015)
- First WIP
