RogueSteward Posted March 7, 2016 Share Posted March 7, 2016 Hello everyone. Here are some tweaks that can be used to increase the game FPS and startup time. This is a massive game and is even more resource hungry than BF4. Here are some tweaks we discovered to speed things up. This is a work in progress. 1) Open up the ARMA 3 Launcher. 2) Click on Parameters 3) Check 'No Splash' and 'Skip Intro' (these settings just get rid of opening splash screens 4) Click on the ADVANCED tab 5) Click on [+] ADVANCED 6) Research the CPU in your computer. Is your CPU hyperthreading enabled? If it is hyperthreading enabled, you can effectively double your core count. My processor is a quad-core i5 3570k and is not hyperthreading enabled. Therefore, I checked the CPU count box and entered in 4. If my processor was hyperthreaded, I could've entered in 8 cores. *hint*, there are no hyperthreaded i5 cpus, but most i7 cpus are hyperthreaded. If your CPU is hyperthreaded, also check the 'Enable Hyper-Threading' box. 7) Check the Malloc box. Either use default or enter (without quotes) "tbb4malloc_bi". There is a drop down menu but some of us have noticed that it doesn't always work. Developers have stated that the only two memory allocation DLL's will either be 'Default' or 'tbb4malloc_bi'. Try them both and see what works best for you. 8) Check the MaxMem box. The developers have stated any number larger than 2047 will just fall back to 2047 as that is the hard coded maximum. Some have possibly noticed an FPS increase by adjusting this higher. I adjusted mine to half my total memory. 9) Check the MaxVRAM box. The launcher states a warning that anything larger than 2GB may cause issues. 2 GB = 2048 MB. Input your max Video Card memory here. Hopefully these settings will improve your FPS. Come into teamspeak and we will help you get set up. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
