FPS is 0 on Altis
Assigned, WishlistPublic


I just downloaded the new update for Altis. I've been hyped for this, so I throw up a mission with me in 1 helicopter. I load it up and my FPS is 0. Unplayable. It is always reproducable. I get over 60 FPS on Stratis. {F21631} {F21632} {F21633} {F21634}

I am running all my settings on low. Everything which decreases FPS is disabled.

Should I provide my Computer Specs?

Same issue here. I can max out alot of the settings on stratis.
Altis FPS is 0 on lowest (I'm using Vista)
When i return to the main menu alter trying altis that is also running so slow.

I have provided my DxDiag.txt if that helps.

I have also provided a screenshot of my FPS in Stratis.

We need your DXdiag. Can you please attach here or upload somewhere and post link here? This is for all who have this issue. Thank you.

This issue has supposedly been resolved in the latest dev branch update.

Please test and report back. :)

Hej MadDog

I run a 32-bit system and Just tested going on Altis after update and my FPS problem is solved, no FPS drops in areas you would not expect them, thanks for the quick fix BI

A friend of mine, whom I play this with all the time, had the 0-2FPS bug on his system. It's 32bit Windows Vista. With todays patch, he is able to run Altis.. ..for about 2 minutes. It then degrades and goes back down to 0-2FPS. I have told him to add -maxmem=2400 to his command line when launching it, didn't seem to change too much.

same for me, Altis is just unplayable. really laggy on MP.
I read somewhere that the DayZ dev team is trying to work on a network bubble.
Why are you not doing the same thing? why my computer need to update what is going on on the other side of Altis?

I am on the dev branch, I don't get 0 FPS, but it's stuttering like hell.
when in Straits everything is fine.

@TOMMEH, Yeah well,
less then a month to release, I don't think they will fix it anymore.
I am disappointed by the state of ArmA 3 until now, I had high hopes, they are gone.

Sadly..... turning off v-sync will give you a FPS Bump in the right direction. If you can stand the tearing.

For all who has still performance issues on Altis.
I created new category Altis Performance. Everybody please create own report with these informations:
*Issue description
*Your Dxdiag and .rpt file after reproduce this issue.
*Your graphics configuration (screenshots or Arma 3.cfg file from this folder: c:\Users\*\Documents\Arma 3\
*Coordinates when is issue on concrete place, or information, that issue is same on whole island. For coordinates type "position player" in watch in debug console.
