That's a pretty effective ESP.

Lots of work myself at the moment... and a new house. Don't even have the internet right now.
I hope all you guys are well though!

How do you think player bans will work?

Some nice vids there!
I like that auto loading shotgun and the new Remington 1911.

Good research, I think you should make some tests inside a village where there are loads of different textures with max texture size. That would rule out things definitely. I used to get Texture/LOD lag there, and I think it could be HDD based in some way, but it looks like the game goes on as usual as textures load (and get sharper).
Might have something to do with my 4GB of memory and 890GB of video memory caching it all before the mission starts.

I'll have a go at spamming diff units and maybe see how a multi players goes.

Section of Science / ArmA2 OA vs Drive Speeds
« on: January 21, 2011, 03:12:01 pm »



Here is a little myth I read about every now and again from SDD supremacists on BI Forum.
"Running ArmA2 from a Solid-State Drive device will give you an instant 10fps boost"

So here is a test that anyone can do!
Grab a 8GB or more USB stick and copy & paste ArmA2 OA onto it.

Here I have
Lexar USB stick         vs      Samsung Spin Point F3 HDD
     

Some huge differences here with the storage speed.
The HDD has an average transfer rate of 119 MB/sec
The USB Dongle has a pissy average transfer rate of 16 MB/sec
Access time is definitely a strong point for the dongle however ArmA uses large files so I don't think it's too relevant to this test.


I will be running ArmA2 OA on mostly high settings at 720 res.


So using the editor I have set up a Zarg map with 27 idle units.
I'll load into the map with the HDD

HDD Result = 32fps

Then I load in with the USB Stick.

USB Result = 32fps

Seems there was absolutely no difference while standing around on an idle map. Only difference was the game & map loading time.
So I decided to add a bit of speed to things.

I'll now fly an A10 over the city with 27 men on the ground. I will do my very best to take the screen shots at the very same point when the A10 passes over the city at 475mph.


HDD Result = 66fps



USB Result = 68fps


Conclusion: Is getting the latest faster SDD going to make a difference on ArmA's frame rate? I'd say NO.
If there was no difference in frame rate from a HDD that is 7x faster than an inferior USB dongle then it's very highly doubtful.


Feel free to paste this on Bi Forum.

9800GTX+
Dualcore Processor (Model unknown xD) 2x 3,3 GHZ
2GB Ram..
Win 7 x86

Win7 x86 = 32bit Windows.
Your system will work with upto 3GB of ram (should be enough).

Also what speed is the ram running at?
I read a post about ram speeds having a massive effect on ArmA.

I've been looking high and low for classic OFP videos but I can only find them 2 vids.

Your page has to be "relevant" to Google.
Total hit count doesn't matter because I've managed to outrank pages that have been around twice as long.

More important to rank is
Are many other pages hot linking to your page?
How many hits per week on average in say a month?
