  1. You can thank Steam it's not really possible to disable auto update without constantly watching download tab and aborting updates. But you can always easily revert back to the older version with the beta code that's given in each SPOTREP. But if you can live with two Arma 3 installs then it's possible. Install the Steam version in drive where Arma's Workshop mods are OK to be and then use Game Updater from Arma 3 tools to install the manually updating Arma 3. You need to launch the game's launcher from the GU's version folder to be able to play that version and then maybe refer the Workhop mods folder to see Workshop mods in that launcher.
  2. I think it would be the best not to set affinity of Arma but set it for everything else so the main core(s) would be reserved only for Arma. Also if remember right when you set affinity of Steam, it also applies to the game you launch next time, so giving Steam for example one core and after that you launch Arma, Arma also is set on that same core only. Just a tip if anyone starts to mess around with this so you don't wonder why games run bad suddenly. I guess with program like Process Lasso you won't have that, but doing it manually it can go like that.
  3. So you have audio problems when BattlEye is on or off or both? Is the BattlEye blocking any files when you launch the game?
  4. If remember right the credits offer was only for the first 1000 or something like that at first. But because there was issues in the shop on the release day, they gave it for everyone that bought the supporter edition on the first day I believe (or just first 2500). You seem to have bought it couple weeks later so I would guess there is the reason. The game was released 5th March.
  5. Very low view and object view distances, 4,4GHz CPU and 1866MHz RAM and decent server is my bet.
  6. Some example topic and there are couple more somewhere. There should be couple tickets also.
  7. It uses BE and that ban also carry to VAC ban
  8. In Steam right click the game -> properties -> local files -> browse local files It's also good to make a shortcut to .cfg and .rpt files. .rpt and some other logs can be found from C:\Users\Your_PC_Username\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Though many games use the same place so\AppData\Local\ is a good shortcut. .cfg and profile files can be found from C:\Users\Your_PC_Username\My Documents\Arma 3 Shortcuts of those two can come very handy.
  9. CPU usage doesn't matter because the game pushes most of the stuff through first core. If you see lower than 99% GPU usage you are limited by CPU, RAM and/or Hard drive speed because they can't push enough work for the GPU. That's how this engine works. Don't compare your AMD FX results to anyone that has Intel in this game because it really can lack behind. Even dual core Intel Pentium can beat it when it is clocked the same. Then about why you get lower fps than your friend with same specs and mods. Well you're hosting, maybe your hard drive is slower or fragmented, maybe your friend has more overclock, you have more programs running in the background or some bad anti virus that slows you down, he has set up lower video settings like view and object distances and detail, you have some broken mod etc. Takistan isn't as heavy as Altis. Also if you have Takistan on SSD then that also makes some difference.
  10. It's normal with 64-bit. I can get the game use 7GB of the 8GB available since the 64-bit was introduced.
  11. So for you PiP fps lowers in some situations even when your fps is good? Generally the PiP fps is lower to likely save performance so are you sure it's not just about that? If you can record a video it would be easier to judge if the stuff you see is what it also looks for everybody else. Are you experiencing this in dev branch, stable branch or both? What I read and understand this doesn't sound like a hardware thing. That hardware should be capable to run this game. Maybe low fps destruction animations are just mod conflict (test without mods first) or recent bug that nobody had yet report.
  12. Did you submit your name through the email that BIS sent? According to this page it was something like this: "Dear customer, As you were one of the first to have purchased the Arma 3 Supporter Edition, we would like to include your name in the game credits of Arma 3. To submit your name and to be included in the credits, please visit this link and log in with your account. Note that it is not possible to change your submitted name afterwards. On behalf of everyone at Bohemia Interactive, we thank you for your splendid support of Arma 3 and its development!"
  13. What kind of cooler and motherboard you have? Motherboard also matters a lot in overclocking. My 2600K runs something like 1,45V at 4,7GHz. With worse motherboard I couldn't get over 4,5GHz and achieving that took long time. 4,4GHz is likely easy to achieve with any Sandy Bridge. Best way to see if your overclock is stable is actually just play some games and run basic everyday programs. For me Warthunder has shown faster unstable overclock than any of those torture programs like Prime95 and IntelBurn. Those programs are good to see the max volts and heat quickly but for me if the heat is enough low for me in gaming it's good. Google is your best friend. Try to find tutorials for your motherboard. Remember that every result is unique. For example I need to push more volts than many other people that have shared their results. Though I use CL9 2133MHz memory so that can also be a reason for higher volts. Be prepared for a lot of restarts. It takes time to overclock and then fine tune it. For first time it can take weeks or even months until you understand everything.
  14. Quote of the year right here. Just wow... What comes to PUBG it looks like a game that many think DayZ should be. It's good that something like it exist as a standalone, so Arma or later DayZ server browsers aren't full of them and naturally PU can bring his full vision of the gamemode.
  15. Possible to use the free head movement to correct your head position to your liking? I don't mean the alt free look but the ctrl head movement that's basically what you can do with TracIkR etc. It was hold left ctrl + move mouse so the head moves in different position unless you've disabled in the controls. Just trying to give a tip for a possible workaround.
