View distance is at a little less than 1000, about 970. As for the fill rate, I assume that's the % shown by the 2 resolution options in-game, am I right?

EDIT: Hey, could it be Windows 7 that somehow isn't very compatible yet with the game?

Yes, fill rate needs to be at 100% and at your native screen res for best performance. I also suggest a view distance of about 1600.

I swear my video card seems to do better with higher visibility set. I know it sounds crazy, but I haven't set it lower than 3000 - which looked like garbage compared to 5,7 and 10K. I've got it currently set at 7700 because that still allows high on terrain detail - whereas anything above moves it down to normal.

Got the game running super smooth, did FRAPS videos - got final version of night drop online....(will link at bottom)

So went to play tonight (no FRAPS) full AA, 7700 distance..cpu at 3.6, video card at 820 950 ....fan at 90%....Can't find that CIA server that kid said. I looked two different times now.

First the textures got slow coming in as the card reached 68C....

THEN.....CTD....wanted 3800 plus memory...Windows crapped a brick because it naturally runs 1200 plus, (without sidebar picture slideshow going, which brings it 1500 or so memory req).

First hardcore memory crash I've gotten on a game in probably 10 plus years, I always have overkill on memory in my systems. I had 8 gigs of the Fatality underclocked at 800 with insane timings, but it wasn't great so I sold 4 off when I switched from Phenom I to II. Ran 4 gigs at 1066 with not so cool timings.

And then this......so I'm not ready for mobo, chip, DDR3 jump yet...

So do I get 4 more, better 800 RAM and underclock the 2 remaining Fatalities???

Needless to say, you wanna run 1900 by 1200 full everything at 7700 distance plus - get ready to NEED 6 plus to run in Vista x64. It would also benefit from 2 gig's of video memory - but then I see it does worse with SLI/Crossfire enabled...which is insane (they can fix that via patch...right?)


Now, I'd like to read some tweak guides to see if there's a launch option where I'll set it at 6675 max memory consumption when I'm back to 8 gigs...then it would be insane.

The above was on a 40-60 person server tonight, roughly 25 or so real people playing...again memory and video memory seem to be more important than CPU's - but yes, the quad is almost essential for this game (to last guy with the x3??).

Another thing I screwed up with tonight is I set CPU priority on that task to realtime, which I notices WAS unstable like they warn you when I did one of the FRAPS videos.(notice I say that I wanted to try when I posted video) So you can even go high (from the Task Manager, under Processes) but I've now crashed and been choppy when setting it to realtime priority via windows.

Haven't needed to set affiinty for the game - it uses all the cores a bit by itself.

Don't let any of this scare you, the graphics are so worth it....insanity...you should see me 3rd person with the Blackhawk whipping through rain - pulling up right before target - needling it between trees - and sneaking up with sniper rifle and a backpack full of satchel charges....(sniping all while 1st person of course)....

I found some strange things when i tested old sahrani maps from arma on arma 2.

They look now absolutely stunning, thanks to the new engine and damn they are running smooth.
I get from low settings and about 20 FPS to high settings and about 30 FPS on my sig rig.

So the game is not badly optimized, it's the maps that are unoptimized.

So get CIA to run on sahrani map and you got a winner.
