the simple act of changing AA ingame can double frame rates. hell knows why. try it using fraps. load a map. then go to options and change AA setting up or down. then watch frame rates climb. at least it does this for me on my 8800GTS 320MB.
in the last few posts there is talk of increasing settings and yet getting better FPS.
Can I have a bit more info on that please.
Also in the last post it says changing AA in game can double your FPS.
What is meant by AA.
Do you mean ArmA itself but changing in game setup???
Being an old Ghost Recon player, system requirments were never to far out of reach, however, my current system is as old as Ghost Recon - I am shoppping for a new PC in order to play Armed Assault on - As I would like to be able to be mobile, I want a laptop. I came across a great deal from Dell on the following Laptop:
Comes w\ Windows Vista, but I am going to change it XP
Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor T2060
1GB DDR2 SDRAM
120 GB HD
256MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Hypermemory
My question is, will it run the ARMA?

AA= Anti Aliasing, you change it in game using advanced video options.Originally Posted by (Barnaby @ Feb. 18 2007,14:30)
It seems when you put it up on Very High some people (like me) get better frame rates than with it set to low.

Ahh of course Anti Aliasing thanks Neildood
I also thought that lower settings on anything made for better FPS but seems not.
I'll give my settings another tweak then
I dont think the GFX card is up to it im afraid...Originally Posted by (MS_CombatMedic @ Feb. 18 2007,15:19)
If you want to play ArmA dell usually allow you to upgrade parts of your laptop. If you can afford it, get a better GFX card, hopefully it will run it.
Obviously desktops are better for performance, you get much more for ur money But they aren't for everyone! Good luck getting a decent laptop

HI, can you give me the advice? I have those components in my computer - Celeron D 2,8 GHz, RAMM 1,5 GB 400MHz, VGA: HIS Radeon excalibur 9600 256 MB/128 bit AGP 8x, HDD 160 GB SATA I. Is it good for normal playing of Arma ? Thank you. Peter
Could some one tell me what are the stated system requirements for Armed assault? I'm unable to find this info?
Then after stating the minimal and/or recommended requirements could you also tell me the real requirements?
Are my system up to it?
Athlon 64 3200+
1 Gb 400 MHz DDR RAM
NVIDIA 6600GT 256M DDR3
Win XP home
Of course I wan't to use the enhanced graphics but I can think of making some comprimises with the settings
I have almost the same specs as you jfri, except I have an AMD64 3000+. I can run the demo with most settings on low, but with textures on normal. It still looks good though.
The only problem is that the settings are limited in the demo. As far as I know, the view distance slider does nothing. I also had to force AA 4x from the control panel because the in game settings didn't seem to do anything either.
But the fps remains high enough most of the time. Be sure you update you Video Card drivers, and Directx. When I enter large forest then I notice a tiny bit of slowdown. Big cities also used to slowdown my computer, but I haven't checked after updating the software.
