For some reason, with this beta patch, when I alt-tab out of the game and then tab back in, it almost always insta-crashes, sometimes with the error you can see in the extract for my RPT below.

Getting the same errors as other guys here, I've found out.

RPT:

Yeah, ST, I just realized that. That is why I fail, and why I should always read the posts before mine. Sorry. :p

With this beta patch I got many CTD's too. It doesn't change anything if I'm playing only with default A2+OA or with mods/addons.

The AI has still many issues in combat, driving in convoy, flying and maneuver in low altitudes etc.

Same here. Back to the previous beta for now.

Yep heading back to previous beta, this one is CTD city.:confused:

everyone who has CTD with this beta build please email me your arma2oa.mdmp and arma2oa.bidmp and arma2oa.rpt (compressed ideally by 7zip)

thanks

Also an old issue (now with pics and repro mission). This damn "auto stand feature" while crawling besides low walls have gotten me killed many times so a gentle reminder so it's not forgotten ;)

Now crawl forward 1 m and you will automaticly stand up!?

I find that problem to be particularly annoying as well.

if you use windows 7

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA

not 100% sure about XP, search for a better answer if you need to

Under XP they should be located at:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your name>\Local Settings\Application Data\ArmA 2 OA

It's a hidden folder so you'll either have to unhide all hidden folders, or manually navigate to it by editing the address line in the explorer window.

Both loss of focus and game hangs due application switching seems to be back in force with this beta. Editor in -window mode.

That would be a nice fix for the next beta patch:

very unstable... crash every couple of loads.

We have found an increase with FPS on this release when running on the server. However what is very annoying is that the server is now reported patched to 1.55 and I cannot role back the server to a 1.54 start through the command line.

This appears to be a patch not a beta ????

In addition our server is reporting its running 74860 which I presume is the server.exe version ?

Appears clients have to run uninstall the beta from the BETA folder AND you have to find the uninstalloapatch.exe as well, its 2 different things. Hopefully we can get this done on the server.

A warning next time would be nice....

A few things which I just noticed now:

- If you put a Mountain Bike in the editor as player, you will notice, as soon as you "start" the non-existent engine, the cam starts to shake.

- Zavarak is called Zavarak1 (Takistan)

- Kameny is called Kamenyy (Utes)

Since the new beta isn't playable online with older server versions I'm gonna be out of the beta patch testing loop until an official patch comes, hopefully soon. I can't update to the beta our server (I never have run the beta on our server) as it would kick the random public that we need so badly.

We too cannot afford any more beta tests. It takes ages to reupload the server files remotely...

Just curious, why does it take ages to upload your local beta folder (packed with 7z for example) to your server ?

Beta patches do not overwrite the normal game data, the only difference with the latest beta patch is that it has a higher version number because it is not compatible with 1.54 vanilla anymore.

Yeah, a warning would have been of help.

Maybe because of no warning the gaming statistic report only about a 500 gamers each night online now?

Before a three weeks or so it was regurlarly about 1800 each night.

The main version number for this beta patch was updated to 1.55 (instead of 1.54).

So you are not able to play on 1.54 servers with this patch anymore.
