Massive Periodic FPS Drops
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I generally run 20-60 fps in Arma 3 multiplayer, averaging in the 40's and 50's, but at random intervals I get crippling slowdowns to where I'm getting 2 fps or less. The game is also at high risk of crashing during these events if excessive user input is sustained. Makes it very risky to pilot helicopters and even land vehicles, and gets me into trouble in firefights once in a while.

Does not appear to be related to heavy engine stress, as I had it happen a few times while standing guard over an hour or two, with next to nothing happening with game assets or behaviour.

Please try to check if you are not running some other aplications that can affect performance of your system. If not and the problem will still occur in latest version of alpha; send the dxdiag and files from this folder:

"C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\"

and we'll check it out.

Thank you.
