FPS on Wastelands - A question.
Hello.

When I tweak my setting in editor mode, I get very acceptable graphics averaging at 30 fps. But when I log into Wasteland games, it always drops to 20 fps average and goes down to 10fps when I encounter someone. I end up losing every battle because of lag. ( I accept I may be crap too ).

How can one maintain a good FPS in multiplayer?

Also, I dropped all the settings to low and even reduced the resolution. This gave me 50fps. But again, when using the same settings in Wastelands, it drops down to 20 and below.

I am happy with my general computer performance so I am not looking for tweaks to improve the frame rate. But I would like a clue to why multiplayer gaming is sub standard. I have tried many low ping servers too.

I have a great PC and I get 30-50FPS on a rare occasion, not sure what to tell you mate, it's just a badly optimized game.

I have specs exceeding recommended, yet I have dauntingly low FPS even on Low settings.

It's also a poorly coded mission from what I've heard.

There's also the possibility that the server he's going on isn't up to snuff to run Arma 3
and possibly sharing resources with another server. Cheapy services tend to do that
run several games on one server.

Wasteland runs a ton of scrips and has like 5000 objects spawned on the map. Of course it is going to lag. Don't play it.
