Since Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead build 85869 (1.60 beta) it is possible to provide custom memory allocators for the game.
The memory allocator is a very important component, which significantly affects both performance an stability of the game.
The purpose of this customization is to allow the allocator to be developed independently on the application,
allowing both Bohemia Interactive and community to fix bugs and improve performance without having to modify the core game files.
