unfei added a comment to T83219: Update: 1.48 fps dropping to 1-5 fps at times un playable.

With the RC patch from yesterday, my ArmA runs smooth as sill. On Altis I experienced rock textures to change even when close, but not sure if that was before. Settings are as in my last screenshots.

There are also problems with setwind array:


  • setWind [10, 10]: No change of wind. The third argument (force direction) seems to be mandatory.
  • setWind [10, 10, false]: Wind strong at first, but goes down to zero after maybe 2 seconds.
  • setWind [10, 10, true]: Wind works. But with true, direction is not dynamic.

Also wind vector values should be limited to like 12 beaufort, i.e. ~30m/s.

[n setGusts [0-1]]:
Does it work at all? I see no effect.

Another observation: If you do
setwind [10,10,true];
1000 setwindstr 0;
the wind immediately stops with the second command, i.e. you won't see the strong wind set first.

My workaround currently is to use a moderate setwind array at init and then keep the windstr always =>0.01.
I avoid using setwind array in scripting. It can create stronger wind, BUT can never change seemless.

SETOVERCAST Timing is broken IMO.

Start at 1, then use "0 setovercast 0":
0 setovercast 1; forceweatherchange;
0 setovercast 0;

Result: Overcast consistently goes down. It has reached the level of 0.9 in 280 seconds.

Now lets try to tell setovercast exactly what was measured above:
0 setovercast 1; forceweatherchange;
280 setovercast 0.9;

Result: After 17 Minutes I skipped the process. The overcast level is at 0.96 at this point. The process does take ultra long and not the expected 280 seconds.
