Hey, could use some advice.
So my problem with arma 2 is that it gives me random crashes where I can hear people and stuff going on in real time, but all I see is a black screen. This was happening in arma2:Free also, but since I added this ''-cpuCount=2;-maxmem=2047'' line to original arma2 I don't notice it (I also have grass layer set to ''disable'') but that line doesn't seem to work it's magic in arma2:CO
I have found a trick how to resolve it temporarily, but it is really annoying the fix is that I hold shift + ''-'' release it and type ''flush'' .
So what I am asking is that maybe you have some tips (or tricks) to fix this, I have contacted BI but no response :(
I couldn't attach my Dxdiag, but in short I have:
1gb radeon hd 5540
here is the full one:
P.S I know arma2 is a CPU thirsty game, but this problem was in arma2:free and they have low texture graphics.
One sure way to disable the grass (basically set ground texture to low) is to use the InstantViewdistance mod (link). It allows you to change the view distance and texture quality while ingame. It doesn't work on adversarial missions though.
Yeah, I had the same problem back when I was using 2 4850's. Unfortunately my fix was to get a new graphics card with more memory. I did manage to delay it happening by dropping the maxmem line (you could try 1024 instead of 2047) but as I say that only delayed the blackscreen for an hour or so.
