Ok, I have fixed one problem - possibly the one affecting Alex and thebarricade. The issue occurs when you start ArmA then tab out and manually edit your rpt file. The problem is the analyser expects to see some information output by ArmA (build id, startup parameters, resolution etc) so if this is missing it can get confused.
I've added some code to display an error message if this condition is encountered. The app will automatically update next time you start it.
I'll also update the instructions on the front page.
Langgis - sorry I am still mystified by your problem since the rpt file loads fine here. I'll look at adding some debug later.
-> I tab on desktop, let the tool's setup.exe (V2.0) run and ... I get a weird graph in "FPS over time": Y-Axis (fps) ranges from 0 to 80, x-Axis (time) ranges from 0 to 8889277 nearly totally blue as if all dots/pixels in the graph's area are set ... (?)
-> tried it with every BM-file, all the time same crazy results
For all that have the same problem: sbsmac found out that it's because of the different floating point standards "." (mostly US/UK) instead of "," (mostly German). That's why my data mentioned above went astronomical high and made the output worthless. sbsmac changed in the "german" .rpt the "x.y" into "x,y" and now I have sensible output in the analyzer.
Thx so far @sbsmac

Hello, this seems like a very promising tool! I just tried it, though, and ran into problems. I downloaded the archive and ran setup, I then got that the Analyzer app was installed.
I copied the 3 BM-missions to the Missions folder and started up Arma2 with no shortcut, just doubleclicked the exe. I selected the city run mission. From there on I just got "Receiving ..." on a black screen for like 20 minutes. After pressing escape I CTD'ed.
Any advice, please?
EDIT: Got it working - restarted the PC, that helped.

I've updated the tool to hopefully work correctly in regions (such as parts of Europe) where floating point numbers don't normally have the form "1.23". I think this should resolve the problems seen by thebarricade, langgis08 and alex72.
The tool should automatically update next time you start it.
OldPainless - do you get this problem all the time? I've occasionally had missions that acted like that but it doesn't seem to be reproducible. If you are still seeing it, I would be interested to send you some test missions to try to narrow it down.
