From my brief research I can tell it is not akin to say a bf3, but I'm having a hard time grasping the core of the game.

It's a Mil Sim, it's not an FPS as people tend to assume off the bat. The core of the game focuses HIGHLY on realism in ways that games like Battlefield 3 can't even begin to. It's unlike any other game I've ever played and have fallen in love. Not to say I don't still like BF3 and other FPS however the ArmA series does not compare.

As for you're question dealing with content, the single player campaigns of ArmA 2 were beyond difficult even on the easiest mode. I completed very few before sticking to mulitplayer. On that note, the multiplayer aspect of the ArmA series is highly community based, and many people have difficulty maintaining an enjoyable experience without becoming involved in one of the many sub communities of Arma. I personally play ArmA 2 with the Military Gaming and United Operations communities with the ACE/ACRE mods as there isn't anything more realistic in a combat gaming experience. It's a heavily mod driven community as well. Hope that helps clear things up a bit for you smile.gif

It's essentially head tracking, so you turn your head a little, your view turns, you lean to the side, your character leans. Here is a video that Dslyecxi put up a while ago that convinced me to buy it:I miss it in games that don't support it now frown.gif

I'm waiting for a good insurgency port to pop up, I'd like ACE and ACRE but I don't see the devs putting in the effort for an alpha. I think I'll still play ARMA II a bit because I like ACE and ACRE way too much redface.gif

This, this and this. If you are thinking of buying ARMA III remember that it is a milsim at its core, if you want to have fun you'll need both friends to play with and really good missions/mods unless you are a real milsim buff.

Thanks for the insight, I really appreciate it. Will definitely take a closer look.

Here's a video I did playing the first Infantry mission:


The game looks and RUNS better than Arma 2, playing it all maxed at 2560x1440 I never saw it dip below 30fps and this is with a single GTX680, since the game doesn't have a proper SLI profile yet. thumb.gif

Does anyone know how to invite people for Alpha Lite? Or is that only starting March 15?

Do you think it's better to disable SLI altogether for the moment then? I ask because I saw nowhere near your performance (only tried single player so far). I saw regular dips into the 20s, while averaging in the 40s to 60s.. And this is at 1200p.

post #100 of 1589
Is anybody seeing a CPU bottleneck in the SP part of this game?

My 4.5 GHz 2600k has 1 core pegged at 100% usage and my gpu usage is at 60% after I lowered some settings to get more FPS out of it...
