  • Long Time To Load In

    If you are having problems joining a server this can help with your Waiting/Joining/Loading times.

    You will need to empty the content of your temp map holding folder.
    Cut and paste to another folder somewhere if you want to keep the files

    For WinXP

    This is located C:\Documents and Settings\Yourloginname\Local settings\Application Data\ArmA

    For Vista

    This is located C:\Users\YourLoginName\AppData\Local\ArmA

    Hope that helps

    If you cannot see these folders you need to change your settings

    First off go to Control panel, then double click folder options if you cannot see this switch to classic view.

    now this brings up a box called folder options, at the top are some tabs you need to click on the one called View.

    Now there are some other worth while options in here we will do as well

    Now move down the list until you see

    "Display the contents of system folders"
    Tick this box

    Then scroll down to

    "Hidden files and folders"
    Options are:
    Do not show hidden files and folders
    or
    Show hidden files or folders

    We will select Show hidden files and folders "left mouse click"

    Then press apply and voila all sorted.

    But right below this one is Hide extentions for known file types If you unselect this one you get to see all the file types by name known or unknown come in handy if you make files or rename them.

    Thanks to my good friend Gunz

        I noticed Dyslecxi (sp) had trouble loading last night and blamed on a missing "breath better" file. I get that error too and I have long load times (usually when the server is close to full). Could this be a factor and how many others get this message?

          I too have had the "breath better" message, but I figured it may have been down to one of the mods I run/was running... At the moment I'm getting a different message when I join in, I cant remember what it says exactly right now, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with chammy's sound mod that I've just put on.

            I'm getting the breathe error too - last night I had to kill the ArmA process 4 or 5 times and finally got in - I get to last loading screen with black bar on the bottom, gets halfway across, and just stops. I seem to have more issues when server is full (like last night). I remember Sawviper and dyslexcia(sp?) having issues too. Will try the temp files issue, but the breathe error seems separate, and I am not running any mods.

              What about commands to load the Sari map instead when loading? Its the main island used in 90% of the missions out there and I have to switch and load that island every time I load Arma :(

                A gentle bump to remind all that this is a handy thing to do regularly as it definately speeds up the in-load.

                  I wonder why this works? I mean your system has Cached the PBO missions in here... you would think that would be a benefit? Maybe it takes time to look through all of them, and compare an OLD Cache to a New Map version?
