I own A2, OA, and now BAF through Steam. Yesterday Steam downloaded patch 1.54 for me and just an hour or so ago I downloaded BAF. I played around in the editor yesterday before buying BAF to test out the lo-res versions of the British units and everything ran perfectly fine.
After downloading BAF, I experienced a momumental drop off in performance. I don't know exactly what FPS I have now or was getting previously, but I can say it was perfectly playable and smooth at reasonably high settings before. Now I can barely even navigate the main menu the stuttering is so bad. It's unlike most lag I've experienced before though. Instead of looking like frame after frame, it's like the game will run for a second or two then pause for anywhere between 5 and 10 seconds.
Any help would be appreciated!
Here are my system specs:
- E8500 @ 3.7GHz
- AC Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler
- Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R Mobo
- 2GB (2x1 GB) OCZ DDR2-1066
- XFX HD 5850 1GB (stock speeds)
- Older WD 7200RPM HDD (250GB)
- Windows 7 x64
- As stated before, I bought Arma 2, Operation Arrowhead, and BAF all through steam.
Forgot to list in-game settings:
1920x1200 for screen+3d resolutions
Textures: Very High
Video Mem: Very High
PP: Very Low
View Distance: Usually somewhere between 2500-4000...currently just above 3000m I think.
