Past Ops I noticed that my FPS was Terrible, throughout the OP 15 to 20 FPS and in the helicopter around 20 to 25 fps. what are tips to improve my FPS.
Below my system specs. 

Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z
OS:              Windows 10 64 Bit.
GPU:            AMD R9 290 4 GB 
Mem:           4x4 GB at 1300
CPU:            AMD FX 8150 8core Watercooled at 3.8 ghz

Current settings:

How do your In Game options look like atm ? From personal experience, decreasing Shadows, View Distance and turning off PiP helped alot.

-> MotherBoard: Gigabyte Z97P-D3
-> CPU: I7 4790k Intel haswell Extreme (4.5Ghz)
-> GPU: GTX 980TI (6GB)
-> Sound card: Creative sound blaster z
-> Ram: Kingston HyperX Savage Red 16GB 2400mhz
-> Hardrives: 1x 550Gb HDD, 1x 4Tb HDD, 200Gb SSD - Arma on SSD
-> PSU: 1100 Watt Corsair

Their my spec's and I still get shitty frames in our OP's. It's not just you Preacher, the majority of people struggle to get 30 fps.

In the WWII op I dropped as lost as 2fps as did everyone else, and on average most people get 15>25 fps per OP.

This was something I was mean't to post about, I kinda want an explanation as to why we get such shitty performance and we always have to stand still at base. I'm pretty sure no other units have to stand there like a bunch of melons.

My specs:



I run operations at a least 60 FPS so I have no idea what your on about.

however I think that those FPS counts are pretty normal for operations. I believe its down to the amount of players and high poly mods with potentially not great LOD distances.

I have found trying to improve frame rates hard.  I went from an NVidia GTX 560 to GTX 960 and did not really see much in the way of improvement.

Add @Mallas said.  View distance and PiP are the 2 things that seem to have a major effect.

Additionally I believe it is not a good idea to set any of the graphic settings below "High".   The idea being that if they are set below high the system uses the CPU to do the rendering rather than the GPU.

I also seem to remember reading that RAM speed can have quite a big effect but I have nothing to confirm that.

Best of luck. S


A day may come when the courage of Alpha fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship,
but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and wrecked weapons when the West comes crashing down, but it is not this day!
This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
