Spot on. Someone told me how bad ArmA 3's performance was, but it turned out he had V-sync enabled (since it's enabled by default). You guys might want to check that. I run the game mostly maxed out; I set terrain quality to high because it looks the same as very high/ultra, and I can't max out view distance, but everything else is maxed and I downsample it from 2048 x 1152 to 1080p. I get 40-60 FPS, not bad for an alpha even though it looks WORSE than ArmA 2.

Performance aside, as expected it doesn't really feel like a proper sequel to ArmA 2. ArmA 2.5 might be a better name, but we'll see at the final release. Friendly AI is broken (since it's an ALPHA) but enemy AI is the same as ArmA 2, and it doesn't have many new features.

The underwater combat is the biggest new feature in the game, and they improved it in other ways such as all of the new movement options and better customization. Sound effects are better, more like ACE 2, but still nothing exceptional. The radio comms however are much better, they sound like actual people lol.

But until AI is drastically overhauled, I won't be impressed. Having that 3D editor and the ability to go undercover with enemy uniforms would help a lot too.

Try this: Multiplayer.
Tell us your FPS, preferably with screenshots.
And try the Vehicle showcase scenario, once you start driving FPS dives like a bomb.

I played multiplayer for about 90 minutes, FPS was just that: 40-60 for the most part, I saw it drop to 35is at some point. But I didn't do the vehicle showcase yet.

Weird. I had constant 30fps in MP. Did you play on playerhosted or dedicated servers?
post #127 of 1583
what are these showcases ppl are talking about...are they basically benchmarks?

If anyone has a key for alpha lite i'd really like to give it a go...I haven't seen anyone post their eyefinity/surround results yet.

Player hosted (though I wasn't hosting). 30 FPS constant sounds like v-sync to me. But also, I never reached any big towns or cities which are supposed to drop FPS.

I only tried infantry showcase which is just a single player mission. I imagine the others are also missions. This is different than ArmA 2 showcases which just showcase vehicles/weapons and other content, in a controlled free roam environment.

No, Vsync is off.
Multiplayer = TDM = Village.
