ArmA2 Demo Release Today - 2PM GMT - 3PM CET - 6:00 AM PST

Recommended Posts

I have directX 10.... and thats not up to date?

DX10 doesn't necessarily include all of the DX9 DLLs.

EDIT: I'm also home now. Downloading at ~740KB/s :D. Wheeee...

;1328115']May wanna note games.on.net (Internode) is an Australian Mirror.

May be why anyone not in Australia may be experiencing slow speeds from that particular mirror.

Id actually rather you didn't to be honest. We do very good speeds to everywhere. And I can say right now approx 2/3rds of our traffic is serving overseas without any complaints as far as I can see. We cover global news with writers from around the world, so we aren't "just" an Australia site, and would rather not be treated as so :).

PS. And you wouldn't do it to a US or Euro site would you :)

Whatever happened to clicking on a link and downloading a file. Whats a torrent and why do I have to be a bitorrent client to download this. I should add I'm cr@p at the internet.

I recommend: http://www.utorrent.com/

Very small footprint and fast download.

Just download, install and then click on a torrent in ie/firefox (or whatever) and it will automagicaly open in utorrent and start downloading :)

Demo contains: full tutorial, Trial by Fire mission (SP only) and Death Valley (single + MP map) + Benchmark map + some editor templates.

It is a different build than the current 1.02 patch though (slightly later). Not sure how Arma2 handles different versions of the client, but I imagine they'd have to be identical?

Yes, even a slightly newer version. No one know's what's different though.

In any case, it would be easy for BIS to stop full game clients from joining demo MP games and vice versa. The question is whether they have done it. It assume they have.

That makes no sense. If it was worth wasting, then it wouldn't be a waste. :)

DX11 hasn't launched yet, so you couldn't have installed it. It will launch with Windows 7, and there is no hardware out for it yet

only ATI cards so far support DX10.1

There is no DX10.1 (or even 10.0?) features supported in ARMA2

I know :D. Just kidding around.

On a side note, this thread is turning into an epic threadnought. Before noon (CET) the average post interval was about 10 minutes. After noon it picked up the pace to about one post every 1-2 minutes. Now we're at something like a new page every 5-10 minutes. Nuts!

Are cap limits something that most people have in Russia?

Here in Sweden no one have it except those who have mobile broadband. My broadband connection is 8/1Mbit and that is considered to be a bit slow over here.

From what I've read, Russianguy is from New Zealand.

I think it goes like this.

They have a cap limit on foreign IPs. But if they use the internet from Russian servers it doesn't count in the cap and they can use it unlimited.
