ArmA 3 Frame Stuttering
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


I usually get around 50-60 frames constantly but at random times my frames drop drastically or my game freezes to the point where it's unplayable. I have an i3-4170 and a GTX 750 ti. The game is installed on an HDD. I don't have an SSD and I can't get one. My settings aren't terribly high. I'll post a screenshot of my settings when I get home but for now I'm trying to get suggestions.

@Timid, try switching to and playing on the profiling game branch by going to Arma 3 - PropertiesBetas in Steam. After downloading new data verify the integrity of the game cache.

• profiling branch (special performance + profiling build - requires access code: CautionSpecialProfilingAndTestingBranchArma3), alternative download of needed binary possible from Dwarden's dropbox

Once that is done then use the Arma 3 Launcher to prepare a troubleshooting report and then upload the report to the feedback tracker for the developers to review.

For issues regarding Arma 3 you can file a troubleshooting report, also via an action available in the option menu in the upper right corner (gear icon)

Be sure to upload the whole report file. If the report file will not upload directly to the feedback tracker then try uploading to a free file sharing service such as Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive,, and so forth, and then link to the report file.
