|ArmA 2 Ultimate Tweak Thread||Locked|
|Jan 8 2010, 3:13am Anchor|
All you guys you should read this! After applying this tweak, I could play ArmA 2 on max settings with only Q6600 and 260GTX. By the way, the author of that topic is me!
Do not remove this thread without my permission! I don't have a backup of it! I worked several hours compiling all this. Please pin it to the top of this forum.
Ok to start of with my tutorial, I will first give you my system specifications:
Processor: Intel 2 Quad Core Q6600 @2.4 Ghz
My settings before:
First of all most of you encountered fancy threads or topics with limiting cpu count. Well in my opinion that is just useless. Why should you limit to use 2 cores instead of 4 if you have 4. Well don't.
First set your in-game settings before you continue! Because some may overwrite your tweaks. Note that all tweaks are tested by me online and are verified to work. All tweaks are completely safe and should not conflict with anything, nor BattleEye nor any server.
Unlocked BIOS, supported by manufacturer by default. This is very dangerous! Only do this if you know what you are doing. Matching the wrong FSB with the wrong clocks can result in permanent system damage. I suggest you use the software which precalculates everything.
2. In-game settings
Video memory - Default
3. Optimizing your profile
Change these lines to the values I provide:
Nvidia control panel:
5. Windows Settings
Vista and Windows 7
X. My current settings
Processor: Intel 2 Quad Core Q6600 @2.75 Ghz (Overclocked by +15%)
Mouse lag: NONE

SSD, OC'd processor = win.. Also turn off AA.

Well if you turn off AA the game really looks like crap. Jaggies everywhere... Which makes me think enemies are everywhere...
Well at least disabling mouse smoothing helped the most for me.

A lot of decent information there. Glad you took the time to work it up.

if my games looks fugly but runs great, then il go with fugly :p at least i can do what the game was designed for -> having fun

Amen ! Fugly it is then.
In the so called " demand for better graphics ", the system demands are growing faster ( for non-console play ) than our financial ability or willingness to upgrade our PC's hardware. I'm not going to burn cash upgrading every time a game I'd like to play is released. That's nonsense !
The best we can do is keep tweaking and pray they don't forget us happy-go-lucky bastards that just want to enjoy playing the goddamn games. Old school still works gets me off just fine.

That is actually very true... In two years time I finally saved up enough to buy a 260GTX... Which is able to play latest games for now... I am now willing to buy a new processor... But that would involve buying a whole new PC!
In one word: CRAP! I have spent my whole life tweaking games and computers to play all latest games lol... I am really enjoying that actually. It give me some kind of yea enjoy.
