Are you guys skipping 1.61 to release the 1.62 or this is a beta for post 1.61?

I think CZ DLC is being released as free separate addon? Or did I read that incorrectly?

That would be the lite version for MP compatibility.

The exe 1.62.95248 should be the final exe for the patch. We said this before but we tried to fix some critical issues, mostly crashes. The upcoming 1.62 update is considered feature complete. ACR Lite is going to be released as optional free download and will not be included in the update due to compatibility problems (ACR requires both Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead).

No, that is incorrect as it stands. It's like it was before. You can buy the DLC but the patch includes the lite version with reduced quality for free :)

Which is a decision worth respect btw!

Ever since this patch and every patch since then;

[94761] TBB 4.0 update 5, (tbb40_20120613oss, http://threadingbuildingblocks.org/ver.php?fid=187)

I have been having micro jitter visuals and laggy mouse movements when I am in Chernogorsk Town Square. As if the biuldings were flickering!

In the air and in the fields is runs smoothly.

All I do every time is open up the Editor and place a baf wildcat helicopter (player) ingame.

Its like the malloc.dll problems in the pre 1.60 betas about a year ago.

time to delete your config and let the game write a new one...

You can always install the older beta and compare how TBB DLLs work just to be sure

and i think what he sees is more likely related to lod tweak/optimizing changes than memory allocator :)

you mean just the ArmA2OA.cfg, right?

should be sufficient,

to be on the safe side you can delete your profile (save your key binds!) and beta folder, too

and then install latest beta and run the game...clean, fresh install :)

Smoke grenades seem to have lost viewblock - AI can "see" through smoke = knows where the opponent is. Nothing against if AI is shooting on last known position but tracking and precise shooting through smoke is bad.
