      Remove -high it was only there for testing and does not work. I hope the command line works for you, but i think its more likely a problem in which the game access the page files and reads them.

      I knew that I have seen that info before it was posted in 2013: http://www.battleguns.net/forum/m/7737561/viewthread/6153624-arma-3-cpu-optimization-low-fps-fix This no longer works it an old switch. It's easy to check, just go to Task Manager and see what the "Base priority" is running at for the arma.exe . Here's a screen shot running this command line: -high -nosplash -world=empty -skipIntro -nologs -noPause -cpuCount=12 -hugepages -maxMem=3071 -maxVRAM=7191 https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma2:_Startup_Parameters

      Maybe the ironside should be scraped (if the class can't be locked) and the tanks put back in the public car park ? AI still should be removed. As for people hopping in your tank not much can be done unless the class is locked, which means more scripts added to the mission file. Just stay out of AO's and find places where there's no players around, thats what i try to do. I have noticed some players have not done what Admin's have asked them to do, "by saying it not in the rules", i find this behavior unacceptable and should be dealt with severely as it disrespectful to the Admin's.

      10GB ArmA 3 update today. https://dev.arma3.com/post/spotrep-00062 ROM: High Command TO: Arma 3 Users UNIT: Main Branch ACTIVITY: Game Update 1.66 (Footsteps Audio Overhaul, Tactical Ping, Maintenance) SIZE: ~10 GB / ~1.6 GB (depends on Apex ownership) NOTES Consider using the Steam client option to verify the integrity of the local game cache to avoid corrupted data after downloading this update. Consider defragmenting your HDD after downloading large updates. Updating a deeply moddable game and its platform is not without risks. We use various methods to communicate upcoming changes to our awesome modding community, such as via the Dev Hub. We also co-operate directly on troubleshooting, and we offer an opportunity to test updates via our Release Candidate tests. Modders, server administrators and other members of the community do their best to prepare for updates and to address issues post-release as quickly as possible. Please be mindful of some interruptions (especially in the first hours / days after a release) while we all work to improve the game together. A Legacy Build Steam branch is available for advanced users. It contains the previous significant main branch version (1.64). It can be used to compare specific changes between major releases. The access code for this branch is: Arma3Legacy164 This update does not apply to the experimental Linux and Mac port betas at time of writing. We hope to be updating those as soon as possible. You can find the servers in the Steam library (switch the filter to "Tools") - "Arma 3 Server" (based on your OS, it will download the Windows or Linux version). Administrators can also use the command-line SteamCMD utility. The app ID is to be 233780. NVIDIA GameWorks™ Technology provided under license from NVIDIA Corporation.
