You have a impressive game collection at steam.
What is irritating to me that you often play a game for half an hour and leave it.
There are also a few games untouched.
Is the problem hardware related or is it just you?

Independent from that and back to the topic, I can understand if someone will reject BIS-products in the future.

yes i understand, but except for the old ones I'm obliged to play on low setting so I don't spend times on theses (i7 950 3.06Ghz, 12go ddr5 with geforce 640) and for Arma I just can't play it not only because i'm on low settings and on the lowest resolution (its horrible!) but I can't set my control keys and the control of arma is horrible!!! i tried arma 2 then 3 I still not able to play sry.

Bye

Shaclovv, fall back into formation!
At the first glance your hardware specs doesn't look bad.
You have sufficient hardware and you already own the game!

I can't help you on the topic of laptops, but when you turn off the energy savings and overlocking your processor just a little bit, you surely can play on higher resolutions like FullHD.

What's the exact problem with setting the control keys in ArmA3?
The changes from A2 to A3 wasn't so big and even the standard keys have been well choosen.

he has desktop pc(but not for gaming) not laptop and his problem is the GPU
try resolution settings in config file 1280*720 or lower, just to try to run. arma 3.cfg at documents/arma 3, this gpu has low fps in full hd even low settings, (BF3,aliens vs predator,metro 2033) and this is for 640 with gddr5, hope u didnt have gddr3, thats even worse.
u have an entry gaming card from 600 series, this auto means bad support from drivers and game devs nowadays if we speak about gaming.
try out different drivers for ur geforce, use this first 314.22 and above if not good

possible tweaks which might helps u

documents/arma 3 folder
arma3.cfg


fullScreenWidth=1280;------------------------1280 or lower check what monitor can support with 16*9
fullScreenHeight=1024;-----------------------720 or lower check what monitor can support with 16*9
refresh=75;
renderWidth=1280;
renderHeight=1024;
multiSampleCount=2;-----------this on 0
multiSampleQuality=0;------------this on 0
particlesQuality=0;-----------------this on 0
GPU_MaxFramesAhead=1;-------------------------set this to 4 or 1
GPU_DetectedFramesAhead=1;------------------set this to 1 or leave default.u can try 0 with making your config "read only" or disable 'writing' to stop reverting on launch. Right click on it, select properties etc.i cant set to 0 and save it it does revert back to 1 everytime i run the game dunno why.
HDRPrecision=16;--------------8
vsync=0;-------------------set this 0 if not on 0
AToC=0;--------------------------------0
cloudsQuality=0;--------------------0
pipQuality=0;-------------------------0
dynamicLightsQuality=2;--------0
PPAA=2;------------------------------0
ppSSAO=0;---------------------------0
ppCaustics=0;------------------0
tripleBuffering=0;---------------------0
class ModLauncherList
{
};
serverLongitude=-3.2911999;
serverLatitude=55.9673;
ppBloom=0;---------------------0
ppRotBlur=0;--------------------0
ppRadialBlur=0;-----------------0
ppDOF=0.14999999;----------leave on default or same as mine

now click exit /save ur are done here

username.arma3profile
scroll down to the bottom


sceneComplexity=200000;-------------------------------------50000
shadowZDistance=100;---------------------------------------------0
viewDistance=1500.0001;-------------------------------------------------100
preferredObjectViewDistance=1000.0001;-------------------100
terrainGrid=50;-----------------------------50

now ctrl F and type(with this u can find it fast)
shadowquality set this 0
texturequality set this 0
open it with notepad++ if u cant open and save the things

if the game is able to run post ur ingame settings here, but do not change it or click OK. just click cancel
if not sell ur VGA and buy a new/ used VGA, this is all what u can do or telling ur issue to nvdia+bi supports , but i dont think they will change anything if only u are who complain about this to them.


ahh i forgot
do u use windows 7-8 64-bit right?
- disable windows aero-theme and all fancy things
-and steam should get ur directx u need, but check it
-disable steam overlay for arma 3 or in general:) (steam community ingame)
open nvidia control panel
first when logo show up ther is a slider set to left peak for best performance and click to using special 3d settings something like that should be there
now go to 3d advanced settings, in otehr tab
vysync off
powersave,energysave:maximum performance
texture filteering quality-highest performance


if the game gonna run thats what i call magic xD

Why are you playing a game like arma on a laptop. Thats your first mistake.

I can play it on a laptop just fine.

Assuming that laptops cannot run games is your mistake ;p
