64bit audio glitch
New, NormalPublic


I made a post at least a year ago about this same topic and a BI employee told me they knew about it and where working on it but since then nothing, so here it is again.

with certain computers, arma 3 when on 64-bit mode will have issues with audio when in first person within vehicles and buildings. this causes VERY loud cracking noises and large FPS drops. I have experienced going from 60 FPS to having to shutdown my PC because the game is that laggy and will not respond to imput. PLEASE if fix this.

Hello: I have all audio enhancements disabled excluding Logitech audio, but prior headsets prove that the bug persists without Logitech audio. Here is a video of this, it is not mine but it showcases the bug, the crackling can also be louder and sometimes the FPS will only drop and not freeze.
