Is a 160 seconds bench in "Convoy Ambush" mision . AA is MSAA6 X in the 1900 xt and maybe ? MSAA 8X in 8800 gtx . AF 16 x Q


The 8800 gtx have five AA levels in the game menu , and 1900 xtx three

8800 gtx

low ,normal , high , very high and "5" mysterious level

Maybe msaa 2x, 4x , 8 x 16 x ? x and 8x Q ?

1900 xtx

low ,normal and high

I can't quite make out what you're saying here but if thats the kind of performance the game gives on an 8800GTX at 1280x720 with any level of AA, thats kind of sad. It looks good but not "28fps at moderate settings on a $650 video card" good. I'll download the demo and give it a whirl when its released though.

BTW, how did you get it early?

Jeje , the game has many bugs, but with the patches it will be a great game. They have sent 2 patches already. The game already is out in Czech Republic and Germany, the rest of the world in February

The first thing I clicked just put me in a wait mode (reservation for downloading). But, I then looked at the What's hot area and they had the demo link there. So I started downloading that and canceled the reservation. One the site now, I can't find anything but the reservation.

Framerate isn't very good for me but with AFR1, SLI wasn't being used. Since I don't play online games and the demo appears to be online only, I just created a server and locked it. So, I'm not sure if that affects my framerate or not since I'm hosting the game.

Edit: That's at 1920x1200 very high AA whatever that is, very high AF whatever that is and settings as high as the demo would let me go (except on AA I didn't use 5, whatever that is).

OWA , shortens the draw distance. With 10000 , or 5000 or 6000 is bottelneck - with one 8800 gtx - .

For exemple - in Checz final version and 1.01 pach

Helicopter fly - 2048 x 1536 - draf distance 5700 - detail terrain high

2006-12-07 20:58:42 - arma
Frames: 724 - Time: 30000ms - Avg: 24.133 - Min: 19 - Max: 30

720 p - 1280 x 720 -

2006-12-07 21:02:58 - arma
Frames: 798 - Time: 30000ms - Avg: 26.600 - Min: 21 - Max: 34

----------------------------

Draf distance 2999 - detail very high

2048 X 1536

2006-12-08 01:28:55 - arma
Frames: 619 - Time: 30000ms - Avg: 20.633 - Min: 18 - Max: 24

720 P

Frames: 1314 -Time: 30000ms - Avg: 43.800 - Min: 37- Max: 53

Performance is so bad (with the full version)!
What's a good SLI profile for this game? AFR2 doesn't work, AFR1 is so-so and the old OFP profile works quite good but not great...
Heh, you're right. I thought AFR1 wasn't working very well so then I tried AFR2 and got nothing!

BTW, this screenshot is a little misleading since with the settings I'm using now and AFR2, I was mostly in the 20s (and that's just walking around with nothing going on). This just happened to be the last shot I captured and to get the SLI bars showing I have to use the clipboard.

Thanks for the info Jonelo. I'll start lowering some of the settings now. I just wanted to give it a whirl at max settings first to see how it would go.

OWA , for my max settings is this

With 6000 or more draw distance , terrail details they are not possible to be put in very high, only in "normal " - in the final game -.

I have the final game (v1.2) and the framerate does get slow after around 15-20min but when I alt-tab the game its back at 80+fps. The final game has also a command where you can force it to use more memory, just add -maxmem=1024 (or 768 if you have CTDs) to a shortcut with the game exe.

I also recommend to force AF in the control panel and disable it in-game because the "very high" setting actually looks like 8AF instead of 16AF.

What does draw distance have to do with the CPU?!?

Increasing draw distance almost always puts a heavier load on the GPU. Hence the word "draw".

Maybe if there was different AI applied, but I don't think this is very common.
