FPS Booster?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just wondering if there is a FPS booster for arma 2? Kind of like Optfine with minecraft. Just would like a little boost to my fps!

Do you have a screenshot of your in-game settings. Also are you running any other mods, only asking as some can pull fps down a little..:)

No I don't have a screenshot but I'm running at 1920x1200, 2400VD with most settings at High or Very High except for AA which is disabled (I'm using SMAA) and PP which is at low.

I use a lot of mods but the mains ones are ASR AI, TPW LoS/Suppression, some SLX, JSRS, WarFX, JTD F&S.

I get between 25-40 fps on my E8400@3.9, 8GB DDR2, R7850 & SSD

You're right about certain mods slowing things down, that's one of the reasons I rarely use ACE2

for AMD CPU owners i suggest similar[but from trusted source/creators]tool, called AMD Fusion. also check recent AMD Overdirve.

also both MSI Afterburner and PowerStrip had quite essential things. last one even had cpuidle suppresion feats and many other handy things.

Sorry @domokun, that question was aimed at the OP.;)

However. I notice your using smaa, I use the fxaa (sharp filter) high settings with low ingame aa, gives very good results. Justs wondered if you had thoughts on smaa, tried that but it blurs a little and I don't like pp effects much so went down the fxaa route, how do you find smaa ?

fxaa is pretty good on the fps as well.

Roger wilco with test of Low AA & FXAA. What CPU/GPU d'you have?

Well if you want to take the time to manually close all your background apps/services then you would essentially get the same boosts, but considering doing all that could take 5-10 mins and gamebooster does it in one click it's well worth paying the $0.00 it costs ;)

Does Gamebooster give any real FPS proven benefit?

I find it does, i use it when playing. Ive noticed an increase of upto 10fps which can make all the difference

The details are in my sig ‘rigs’.:) although I will have to add a Roccat Kone + gaming mouse to that now, just got one, lovely :cool:

These are both purely gaming pc’s nothing else on them, completely un-cluttered, it makes a massive difference I have found when gaming, especially this series of games. The fps can be significantly higher than anyone using the same machine for everyday use, with it full of clutter. I fully understand that its hard to afford a pc just for your games, but it does make a big difference, in the group I play in, everyone has a dedicated gaming pc, the best money you will spend, imo..

My rig for arma 2 is nothing special, just run of the mill gaming pc, bought new a couple of years ago, but its OC'ed a little, and tweaked here and there, and very lean. It can whoop arma's bottom, provided there are not 100's of ai in combat at one time..:D and of course with the right game settings..

Of course you need a decent card, which I believe I have in an unsung diamond, still holding its own against newer cards. I have one of the new ones in my other rig waiting for Arma 3, if it serves just as well, I would be happy, if better, then even happier..;)

Don’t clutter it up, keep it lean and clean, pays you back in great performance, just my opinion. :)

Hey just an update, I've installed gamebooster and its givin me a slight boost, but not much. @ChrisB I'm not running any mods (yet) and as for my settings I have them all at low with at and aa off and no postproc. With thoughs on a regular mission I can get an ok fps of 20ish, but on a mission with a lot of AI I only get 10 fps with it set to Wii game grapichs. I mainly play sp because I can barely run the servers...

My specs are:

Windows 7 home premi

3.5 gb ram

Processor: AMD E-300 w/ Radeon HD graphics 1300GHz 2 cores

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics

and I think about 5.8 GB of vram

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you want to game, and in particular with ArmA 2. Your going to need a much stronger CPU, and Graphics card solution than what you use currently as its simply not strong enough.

@ Infamous I know its not very good for gameing, I'm just looking for short term solutions as I'm currently saveing up for a good gameing pc.

@ChrisB Thats a pretty sweet rig, how much did that set you back?

You will struggle to run it at all on the lowest resolution with the graphics on low I'm afraid mate and will find it frustrating to play with such a low FPS.

Thanks.

Hadn’t thought to add it up, I have just got a Roccat Kone Plus mouse to add, wife keeps telling me to stop, but what can you do when gaming’s your hobby.

The Intel is new and mainly waiting for arma 3, the athlon around 2yrs old maybe a little older, and is mainly for arma 2, both gaming pc’s.

Non of it is daft money though.

If your saving for a new gaming pc for arma2, would certainly recommend the Athlon II x 4 quads, pick them up now for around £350-400 with card, pos maybe have to add £100-150ish to that to upgrade existing card to something a little stronger than provided.

That’s pc only of course, no peripherals.

I guess I'll have to deal with crappy graphics and slow fps untill I can afford an update. Now I have to start the search for a good comp...
