Thanks for clearing that up. The Nopryl Community event was on Altis, same performance issues there. Although various mods were used in this mission as well. I'll ask Sjaba to convert the mission into Vanilla. Like I mentioned before, the SHAPE campaign/missions cannot easily be converted into Vanilla as they are mod dependent.
I was asked by Dwarden to upload the missions used + RPT files. I am just stating the obvious difference that THE ONLY THING changed from one day (v1.32) to the next day (v1.34) was the Arma version resulting in a 60% performance drop. Addons, player count, AI count, have NOT changed. This leads to the obvious conclusion that Arma3 is the cause of the drop. Sorry for caps but it seems I am not getting through. Several communities have noticed a similar performance drop with different modlines, maps etc. It seems the common dominator is Arma3 v1.34.
The SHAPE mission is featured on Takistan. Mission and scripts rely on add-ons. There is no easy conversion to a Vanilla version. The Nopryl community mission was done by someone else. It was featured on Altis so could perhaps could be vanilarized. Will ask the MM, Sjaba.
@Iceman, do you have all the information to proceed?
The said community event was a mission on Altis (with mods/add-ons). I'll go check if I can dig up the server RPT logs
Edit: uploaded RPT log from 4-11-2014.
Edit2: uploaded RPT log + mission from Nopryl community event
We tested with exactly the same specs before and after the update. The ONLY factor that was changed was ARMA3 client and ARMA3 server.
We did not test using a Vanilla mission.
Note that I joined a community event that same night. 14 players, 45 enemies, minimal objects on the map > 9-15 server FPS throughout the game. See post: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?185191-Update-1-34-gt-Major-loss-of-Server-FPS-on-dedi-servers
Sorry mate it still does mean we have to update all our missions with a fix (that is not around yet/full working atm ) till the next update is released. Like most MM I don't use the dev version for (puiblic) release missions.
Is there a temp fix?
Voted up. Crucial for MM and devs
overviewPicture is not working in MP (dedicated). Arma3 v1.28 Hotfix 2:
- Create a new mission
- save a 1024 x 512 PAA overview picture in the mission folder: overview.paa
- create a description.ext, include: overviewPicture = "overview.paa";
- Save as multiplayer
- Start dedicated server
- From client, Log in as server admin.
- Select mission. Error: overviewpicture not found
1.46 This is still not fixed.
