# Arma beta patch 1.09 - released

## Recommended Posts

Hey BIS could you pretty please make SetViewDistance XXXXX go up to 30 000 meters in the final patch?

Seriously this patch is awesome

The fog removal, faster texture load and performance enables me to fly with SetViewDistance 15000 at 60-45 FPS on custom maps

What the hell gfx card have u got? mine starts to get choppy around 6000m, I think it maybe cos it's only 320mb.

Quick bug report.

FFAR firing sound disappeared, as a result of Â making modes[]={}.

Think about unifying Sahrani nation by making KKAS using SLA faces Â

edt And maybe increase SVD reload speed.

Is it safe to use your existing sprintfix with 1.09beta?

Yes it still works and still fixes some of the animations

edit:

problem solved, works only by using the shortcut.

Be sure that your shortcut target field is correct:

"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\beta\arma.exe" -mod=beta -window

For example.

And also that the Start In field points to the ArmA root folder:

"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA"

Merry Christmas BIS. Thank you very much for this. Just the shot in the arm I needed for holiday vacation.

Rest well, and be satisfied that your efforts made the game much better than before.

The LONG patch log is very heartening to see. It HAS taken a long time, but it is clear you guys have been working real hard on this patch.

I am much more likely to buy ArmA 2, seeing your dedication to this game.

I am so happy right now. Vista is still a battle with this game, but this makes it more bearable.

I too am gonna buy ArmA 2 but thats after a good system upgrade

It won't start for me.

After installing the patch successfully I get

"Addon CA_Hotfix requires version 1.09 of application"

I started with shortcut -mod=beta.

Any ideas what's wrong?

happy holidays BIS for releasing 1.09 been waiting for it since 1.08 was

moved it to the feedback thread...

Well, mines is broked. If I try launching from the shortcut that came with the beta, I get an error that says

Quote[/b] ]This application has failed to start because IFC22.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I can see that IFC22.dll in my arma directory too.. so I dunno why it cant find it.

I launch from the arma launcher with the beta in the launcher and it will say something about some .pbos need 1.09 to work, and when I get in-game, it still says I am using 1.08 in the bottom left.

Have already tried re-installing the update and its still a no-go. Any ideas?

2. wtf is with the freaking AT launcher recoils...i have a higher recoil if i fire rocks from my sling...

Does AT recoil really matter, though? There are no rapid-fire AT weapons, so the recoil is pretty much a moot issue.

Use the thread in the trouble shooting forum.

it does for me..it not really about the gameplay, but about the feeling ure shooting a rocket rather than a bullet. because as it is now, the recoil is the same for both = nill. don't get me wrong, i like that the patch, even in beta is proper good.

even tho i haven't played it enough to figure out all the differences, but if there is a beta, then why don't i give some feedback so maybe it arma will feel like a finished product for once.

Seems I'm the only one who had the patch introduce a fog bug rather than remove one... crap.

All the positive remarks in this thread seconded. Good job.

After a nearly too long time to wait its finally available.

Unfortunately im too tired to test the patch right now, but will do as soon as i find some time later this day.

Anyways, thank you BIS-Team for this early x-mas present, and have a nice x-mas holiday.

Oh my goodness ...

I spent 3 hours playing around with that 10 000 m viewdistance ...

Fantastic.

Amazing.

Fun!

Flying with smooth framerate, quite smooth even on the ground, in the forests and towns.

Even with Fraps recording.

Thank you BIS for this Christmas present!
