Will performance be improved on final release?

First off, I don't think this game supports SLI (as of it yet I hope) does it?

Recommended:

OS:Windows Vista, Windows 7
Processor:Intel Dual-Core 3GHz or AMD Dual-Core Athlon 3GHz or faster
Memory:4 GB RAM
Graphics:NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT or ATI Radeon 5850 with Shader Model 3 and 1024 MB VRAM or faster
DirectX®:dx90c
Hard Drive:20 GB HD space
SoundirectX 9.0c compatible audio-card
Other Requirements:Broadband Internet connection

I'm well over the processor (core i7-920 2.66 Ghz) and the video card/VRAM (but only if I have SLI enabled). Yet, this beta runs really poorly on normal-high settings. Will the final release be much more optimized?

What are your specs? Mine works fine on high... I wanted to put in 8GB or better in my system to pre-load all of that scenery for X-Plane and MSFS X.

My config:

OS:Windows 7-64 bit
Processor: Intel i7-2600K @ 3.4GHz
Memory:8 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 570
DirectX®: DX11
Hard Drive: Lots (RAID 0)
Sound:M-Audio FW410

yes,

we work both with AMD and NVIDIA so they may add Crossfire and SLI profiles / driver tweaks ...

we ofcourse work on optimizing the TOH engine
(note that engine updates for ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead beta 1.60 will benefit TOH too)

for performance optimizing i suggest to e.g. disable Picture in Picture and tweak view distances ...

tip: SSD does wonders ...

Running Smoothly here @ 1920x1200 for both 3D and Interface. I am running a Core i7-2600k with an ATI 6970 2GB with 11.9 Drivers. On Win7 x64.

My graphic settings are:

Visibility 14099
Object 6737
Shadow 250
Traffic 600

Video Memory: Very High
Texture: Very High
Object: Normal
Vsync: Enabled (I suffer motion sickness without it in any game)
HDR Quality: Normal
Pip: Enabled
Antialiasing: Normal
Terrain: Normal
Shadow: High
Anisotropic: Very High
Post Process: High
Cloud: High

Not sure how to see FPS, if there's a command I be interest to see if these setting maintain 60fps on Vsync and run a bit with it off to see how far it goes. Like I said, it runs very smooth here but be curious if I can push setting even more. Anyone knows if there's an engine command?

Zak

PS: Now need to plug in my Saitek X52 to see how, if?, it will work.

Hi there, just bought the game jesterday

My config:

OS:Windows 7-64 bit
Processor: Intel 2500K
RAM: 8 GB
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460
Hard Drives: SSD with win on it, Raid 0 for games
Sound: Onboard

And even with lowering a lot of settings to normal i only get mostly between 14 and 30 fps, looks a bit low to me...

Hi,

Since there are quite a few people who seem to have trouble properly configureing their graphicsettings here are some tips:

1. If your CPU doesn't deliver a mighty punch (3,4GHz Quadcore or better) reducing Viewdistances and Object Detail is the best way to improve performance.

2. Set Video Memory to "Default". This usually gives you the best performance.

3. Set Postprocess effects to "Low" or "Very Low". Besides improving your framerate I can't stand the horrible blurr on higher settings.

4. Go to C:\Users\*YourUserName*\Documents\Take On Helicopters, open the TakeOnH.cfg with Notepad or Editor, look for the AToC setting and set it to AToC=0 or AToC=1. Now start Take On Helicopters and see if the framerate is improved when looking at trees and bushes. If not, set it back to AToC=7

5. I strongly recommend a SSD. Even though it doesn't improve your fps (a lot) it makes your game run a lot smoother. Small stutter is no longer a problem, there won't be problems with textures not loading fast enough and violent LOD switching is reduced. If that's not an option make sure to properly defrag your HDD.

And at least: Don't expect your game to run at 60fps in every situation. It won't (at least if you want nice graphics).
I play with 25-40fps and I enjoy it.

Here are my graphicsettings: http://abload.de/image.php?img=takeo...015-00h6za.jpg

And here my Specs:
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3,99GHz
GA-EX58-UD4P
6GB DDR3
Toxic HD 4870 1GB
OS is installed on an Intel X25-M 80GB SSD
Arma 2: CO and Take On Helicopters are installed on an OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD

Cheers

You can use free FRAPS utility to see your FPS.

Isn't performance always improved in the final release? :P
