This is a phenomenon called "z-fighting". It has always happened is certain condititions, and there's no way for you to avoid it.

The 2GB is the user-defined amount you can control yourself. It doesn't mean the game won't use more. And it will, around 3GB is normal.

I'm pretty sure this is normal floating-point imprecision which can't really be fixed.

greenfist added a comment to T119031: High GPU load in game menus.

Not an issue.
Because this is expected when the GPU is rendering very high fps.
So enable vsync or limit fps externally if you don't want the game to utilize your hardware.

greenfist added a comment to T90549: Game does not fully utilize GPU.

This is a known "problem" of the Arma engine. (unless you're experiencing some rarer issue I haven't heard about).

Your fps is limited by server/CPU performance.

Try putting everything to max in the main menu before joining server. If you get higher gpu usage then the gpu utilization is not the problem.

This is solely based on my experiences on the Arma series, so there might indeed be some utilization issue only in Dayz.

greenfist added a comment to T90549: Game does not fully utilize GPU.

I don't see anything wrong with GPU usage. Probably your cpu or the server is bottlenecking.

Turn every graphic setting to max to get higher utilization.

greenfist added a comment to T86210: nearestObject returns itself if same classType is used.

This sounds like intended behaviour.

"nearestObject [Tank1,'Tank']" means: "the tank nearest to Tank1's POSITION", not "the nearest other tank to Tank1".

Maybe this command could use a little expanding though. Like some commands have an optional parameter for ignored objects ->
"nearestObject [Tank1,'Tank',ignoreObj]"

greenfist added a comment to T86209: When in vehicle, you cannot put on night vision to its slot.

Can't confirm with the current RC version. 1.56.134375
Worked fine with Marshall and T-100 at least.

edit. NO! Doesn't work after all.
You can move stuff between vehicle inventory and your containers & slots. But if you try to move, for example, NVG from backpack to its slot, icon doesn't appear there. But if you exit the vehicle and open the inventory, the goggles appear correctly assigned to the slot.

If you try to do this with two or more items, only the first will be there after disembarking. Eg. move a helmet to its slot, then NVG, exit, and only the helmet is on your head.

Additionally, after trying to assign a helmet, some other items also stop working, like weapon attachments.

greenfist added a comment to T86138: Feature Request: Add button to close game directly.

As far as I know, Alt+F4 is the same as closing a program. It sends exactly the same command as clicking the little cross in the corner, or selecting Exit from file menu on some programs. So a separate button wouldn't change the fact that the game can't exit gracefully.
That issue would be worth its own ticket, especially if you can reproduce it reliably.

I don't have this problem, although I always close the game with Alt+F4, usually several times a day. :)

greenfist added a comment to T84634: Small stamina hit on empty mag and reload.

Actually, you stamina doesn't decrease. When you deplete ammo (or drop something) your load lightens, so the maximum stamina increases and you start regenerating to get it to max.

But you're still right, it is a bug.

greenfist added a comment to T84398: Ai tanks standind behind the created cover (turret UNCOVERED) dont see enemy vehicles at all.

I tested the main battle tanks, and their "eyes" are really low. Like around 1.30m height, while the actual viewpoints (driver, gunner, commander) are all much higher than that.

Funny thing is that even the tank away from the wall in the attached mission don't know about the other, even though its whole turret is clearly visible from all altitudes. Seems like any part above that 1.3m can't be detected.

edit. added a screenshot of a perfectly hidden tank. Apparently hull-down is very viable tactic...

greenfist added a comment to T84334: Bullet bouncing off of thin air glitch at Virtual Arsenal. Please see the attached screenshots..

The tracer lines aren't 100% accurate because the bullet's position is checked only at certain intervals. They're not the actual path of the bullet.
Your image looks like the bullet bounced off the soldier, probably his gun.

greenfist added a comment to T79155: Vegetation harder than steel..

I tried with two bushes known to have this issue. Neither made the unit invulnerable any more.
If the fix was some sort of global tweak to materials then I assume all bushes are good now. But if they only changed specific model geometries, then we'll have test all the possible culprits to make sure this is truly solved.

May 10 2016, 9:11 AM · Arma 3
greenfist added a comment to T79155: Vegetation harder than steel..

This issue is caused by the game's bullet simulation and some vegetation model geometries:
When a bullet enters a fire geometry (not the same as the visual one) of a bush or a wall for example, the bullet's new trajectory is calculated and it's teleported to the point where it exits the geometry. So if a soldier is inside an object, the engine just doesn't detect an impact, because the bullet simply teleports past all surfaces that could be hit.

As far as I can see there's 4 ways to improve this:

  • Change the way bullets are simulated. Which of course is not going to happen. Way too much work.
  • Prevent players from entering the bushes. I.e. add a solid block inside them. Although, this might also affect bullet penetration and vehicle impacts adversely. If it doesn't, it could work with some bushes which shouldn't be walkthroughable anyway.
  • Make the fire geometries more complex to lower the chance of being in exactly the right position inside them. I think right now some models are pretty simple solid blocks, which are very likely to manifest the issue. They could be more "hollow" to allow bullets to travel freely. Perhaps something like a cylinder with thin walls. This would probably need a new material too, since bullets would penetrate much lower distances.

More complex models might affect performance though.

  • Remove the fire geometries completely. This could work in some cases. You wouldn't see any impact effects like falling leaves, and vehicles wouldn't knock them over.

greenfist added a comment to T69175: Action menu: unavailable actions should grey out and become unclickable -- not disappear!.

Graying out the invalidated action would also help with small, hard to point, hotspots (are they called that?). You could click it as soon as it becomes valid again after you missed it first time around.

This and removing weapon selection/reloading from action menu would make it much better with very little effort.
