Yet Another Arma Benchmark

About 2.5 minutes long scripted intro for measuring your average FPS. Emphasis on AI fighting performance, bullets, and explosions.

The mission is very CPU heavy; you'll probably won't get much above 40 fps even on a high-end PC.

You can save up to 20 results. Useful for comparing performance between different game versions, system setups, game tweaks and mods.
Select multiple results with ctrl+mouse click to view their average score.

PLEASE NOTE: this isn't an exact scientific benchmark because of the AI. Its movement, shooting and other actions are inherently random, so every run is always a bit different. Expect about ±2 fps variance between runs. So if you intend to compare effects of some minor system/settings tweaks, they probably won't be visible with YAAB.

Latest version: YAAB v1.00 (Jan 17th 2019)
- Minor fixes for UI and mission

@Sams I think that would be great thing to have. Thanks for considering and your time invested in this tool!

Groove, that might be even more confusing because those titles sound like the actual presets which a mission can't set for the player. Although it could be communicated so clearly that everyone knows what's it about.
The enabled 'standard' is already shown on the end screen, but it could also be added to the each individual saved result.

@Sams @Mahatma Gandhi, I think it's better to add H for High, V for Very High and U for Ultra.

@Sams, would it be possible to add something to reflect on the table at the end that would indicate wether the person has pressed S (H, V, U) at the beginning or not.

At this point it's possible to see if S was pressed or not, only if a video is provided and if it was recorded from the beginning.

What I like about the S-key is that it fixes the view distances and says standard settings on the result screens. That way, you know this is a valid benchmark and not one in which people say they used preset X but adjust the view distances to 500m to post a high result and shine. I have S-key on all my results and I only really trust those that say standard settings in the result screen.

Mahatma, I wish there was a way standardise the test even more but unfortunately it's beyond what's possible with scripting.
I admit the S-key wasn't that good idea, it's confusing at best, although the view distances and terrain detail are one the biggest factors in settings determining the FPS.
It might be better to advise people to set some specific video options preset and then reporting as much of the variables as possible in the results screen.

I know many people think that using the S-key makes no sense, as it reduces object view and general view distance but in reality its at least to some extend preventing cheaters from posting screenshots of obviously faked results. See Paladin below who claims to have 69 FPS under Standard Preset with a 4.5GHz 6400 and 3000MHz DDR4. To say it straight... this is impossible.

Maybe Greenfist can implement that S-key adjusts the view distance to always 5000/4000 and reports that on the result Screen.
