I did a quick search and found out that no one is actually playing Arma 2 on a Macbook Pro Bootcamp. And i guess it is just logical as arma is a really demanding game.
But i still would like some advice from you guys who know your way around Arma 2.
In order to play smoothly, at around 30 fps, i need to play at 1024x800 and everything deactivated or on very low. Memory being on default. To me It seems to be really low value and i am surprised i cant get a tad bit higher quality from the game.
Here are my specs:
-Mac os Lion with last updates.
-Bootcamp : Windows 7 64bits Home basic on a 160 GB partition.
-A Core i7-2860QM@2,50Ghz
-8 Gb ram
-HD radeon 6770M 1gb
-Oh and here are my launcher parameters for the beta = -nosplash -cpuCount=2 -exThreads=7 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
Any idea on how i could improve the perfs?
- Should i buy some more ram?
- Should i do a ramdisk? I'm not sure of that as i read somewhere that it wasnt really a big booster anymore with the last beta patches.
- Would a SSD bring significant perfs boost?
I know i am limited by the laptop aspect, but in any case i wanted to get your opinion on that as i dont have other choice at the moment.
