Thread: Arma 2: OA: Beta Build 82282 - Memory allocator test

    Well, it seems that -malloc=3 has left all the others in the dust. Call me premature, but I think we have a winner.

    So, Suma, how's about you tell us what all this means?

    Just one more thing, does trackIR effect perfomance? Because I tried the benchmark 01 mission without activating trackIR and I got 29fps avg. Then after I activate trackIR, rand the same mission with the same setting and I got 24-23fps avg.

    Hi everyone, I started testing these betas when the last one was released and would like to know whether the changes from previous betas carry over to the next or not.

    Edit:
    I tried to install the beta but I get an error message saying "wrong cd key" although I bought arrowhead on steam. The last beta worked fine. But I had problems running mods and so I reinstalled arrowhead. Does anyone have an idea what might be the problem?

    Steam user probably. Start the Steam launcher as Administrator and run your arma games at least once through the launcher.

    Played with Malloc=3 for a few hours, in the process did a lot of config tweaks like changing AA, VD, also did a lot of Alt+tabbing and FRAPS'ing so there were a lot of chances to mess things up.

    The game worked stable. Although I didn't notice any positive FPS change other people did.
    ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
    ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

    I get crashes on mission loading (trying to play "For the life of a friend") with JSRS sound mod and the mission addons active.

    I tried -malloc=3 and -malloc=0 with the same result. Running the vanila 1.59 plays with no problems, but I guess we all knew that anyway.

    Those not getting crashes with -malloc=3, did you have have addons activated or not? I realise some did, but am wondering if most test with no addons active. Is that the prefered method from the Dev's, I guess that would be easiest for them to troubleshoot?

    Thanks

    If you want me to check, I need exact download location for both mission and addons / mods used and step by step instructions how to run the mission. (Believe it or not, I have no idea what is "For the life of a friend").

    Ye Suma please tell us what this malloc is.
