  • Editing Ace_config

    Hi Guys,

    before I go out and splash out on a new GFX card I wanted to see if turning off the spent shell casings had any effect on FPS. Beita suggested doing this. As I have 2 left hands when it comes to techie stuff I was wondering if anyone could tell me how and where this is done.

    best regards

    Auf deutsch? ;-P

    Okay, here you go. In your Arma directory, go to the directory "Dta\ACE". There you have the file "ace_clientside_config.hpp". Edit it with any text editor available, like the infamous Notepad. Find this part here:

    Code:
    // Enable ejected casings staying on ground
    class ACE_FX_CARTRIDGES_E
    {
    	enabled = 1;		// change to 0 to disable
    	max_cartridges = 500; 	// max. amount of cartridges on map
    	max_distance = 0;	// max. distance until cartridges become deleted by FIFO
    	max_lifetime = 600;	// lifetime of cartridges in seconds
    	min_FPS = 15;		// min. FPs when cartridges become deleted
    };
    Change it in any way you like, but for starters, to see if it helps at all, just disable it completely as described in the // comment by changing "enabled = 1;" to "enabled = 0;". If I was you, I would just go out and get the biggest GFX card available, that would be the proper solution and prepare you for Arma 2. ;)

      Hey Bert,

      auf schwiitzerdeutsch......merci viel mal für dini tipps.

      No seriously thanks mate. I will mess around with the config first and see what happens. If this doesnt work then I will be checking back here for some decent GFx card tips from all and sundry.

            You shouldn't be worried with FPS with that graphics card...

            Try to force vertical sync off, in nvidia control panel -> 3D settings -> ArmA.exe

            EDIT: My guess is that your CPU is the handicap.

              Gigabyte 965P-S3 Rev. C2 Socket 775 LGA
