I found a bug. Posted it before but I'll do so again due to posting it in the wrong section, the noob I am
As you guys might know, BIS released ArmA: Cold War Assault yesterday. It is a newly patched Operation Flashpoint: Cold war Crisis + Resistance, released due to the 10 year anniversary. Since there isn't really a forum dedicated to it yet, I decided to put it here.
Now, the next may sound a little bit funny, but I'm having performance issues with this game. My specs are:
System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT
Processor: Intel i5-760
I can set all settings to high, However, when I set both visibility to 5000 and Texture quality to Very High, the game stalls immediately. I tried doing it 3 times, all causing a stall. Heck, after the last attempt I wasn't even able to pass the opening screen, forcing me to fully reinstall the game again.
Now I'm writing this, I'm having a vague memory that I've had this problem a while ago installing CWC on my relatively modern computer as well. Am I literally overkilling its capabilities?
Thanks in advance,
(PS: Note that I am extremely happy about this launch. It wasn't necessary for my part, but its good to see homage being payed to such a legendary game that changed the gaming industry big time. If there's no solution you won't see me bragging)
I think I've found the problem. When I wrote the above I didn't actually start a mission yet due to the problems already occuring in the options screen. After I fixed that issue with the re-installation, and trying to run a SP mission, I was returned to desktop with the following issue:
Out of Reserved memory (16.384 KB)
Code Change Required (current limit 524.288 KB)
Total free 449.687KB
Free Blocks 694, Max free size 8846 KB)
Note that I have 8Gb of RAM memory. I've also tried various settings for the pagefile, with no positive results.
I also noticed that ArmA: Cold war Assault calls my processor a 'Intel Pentium Pro SSE 2803.3MHz" and it claims it has only 1.024 MB of RAM memory.
Is there a chance that the application isn't able to recognize my 8GB RAM, recognizing it as 8MB instead (8846 KB free size)?
I hope you guys can look into it, I recon in may be a problem for guys with high performance computers.
Edit: I got it running now, I'll try to locate the specific problem that is causing this error
