How to Install Arma 3 Performance Build (Low FPS Fix)

Arma 3 Performance Build Installation Guide

The Arma 3 performance build is confirmed to dramatically improve FPS on Tanoa (and possibly other maps).

Locate the latest files by doing the following:

Go to 
this link.
Finding the latest build is easy if you split up the folder name.
For example: 162perf15

162 is the Arma build version.
"Perf" means "performance".
15 means its the 15th version released.
You should always download the latest version. Version 15 is current build at the time of this tutorial, but the next would be 16 or 17, etc.

Step 1: Choose the correct download.
The file you want is called arma3client_performance_162_#####.7z
The ##### part changes with every update, but as long as it starts with arma3client_performance you're on the right track.
To download from Dropbox, click the file then locate the download button at the top right, then click the text that says 'No, thanks. Continue to download → ' then click 'Save File'.

Step 2: Extracting the file (You can skip this and go to Step 3 if you know how to do this)
To extract the file you're going to need a program that deals with ZIP/RAR files. I would suggest WinRar but others like 7-Zip or WinZip. All work equally well.
If you don’t have one of these, you can download WinRAR 
Download the version that corresponds to your operating system (32-bit will work on either if you’re not sure).
Follow the install wizard to complete the installation.
Locate the zipped file you just downloaded from Dropbox and right-click it and select 'Extract here'.

Step 3: Copy the file to your Arma3 Main Folder. Locations vary but generally its in
.\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3
.\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Arma 3

Now you need to rename the old file before changing the new one.
First, rename your arma3.exe to something else (ie. arma3_backup.exe).
Next, rename the performance build file to arma3.exe

That's it. Remember to check the Dropbox link above periodically for the latest release. New builds tend to pop up every 1-3 days or so.

Hope this helps. Feel free to PM me if you need any help or have any questions.
