  2. I'm looking into buying a new game/workstation to run Arma 2 and photoshop/3ds max with a lot of multitasking going on. This is what i was thinking: Intel Core i7 950 Asus Rampage 3 Gene Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" SSD 60GB Western Digital Caviar GreenPower WD20EARS, 2TB Cooler Master HAF 922 Cooler Master Silent Pro M850 EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E Samsung Synmaster p2470h I want to add another video card in the near future but i'm still up in the air about getting the EVGA GTX 460 X2 or the Sapphire 5850 x2. What would be best for arma? Also do you guys think i could run this with a 600 watt psu? 850 might be a bit much. I might add another 6 gigs soon and the second video card. Might switch the Scythe mugen 2 for a corsair H70? With no oc'ing no more cooling should be needed i hope:) First system i've built in a while so i'm not to sure, any comments/tips would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. When i click execute in "main" i get this. The program seems to be already running. Please wait/close the other application first. If you believe this is in error, please delete C:/Program Files/Six-Updater/six-updater.pid Only one instance of theupdate is running.

    Beta patch error

    Yep, thanks guys that was indeed it.
  5. Ever since i installed the last 2 beta patches i've had this error pop-up whenever i try and start the game. The game tries to start up and then fall back to desktop. Anybody else get this error?

    Beta patch error

    Right you are. No other mods present in the directory, no other addons installed in the standard addon folder and as you can see nothing except the beta in the target line. I thought it might be because of some non-bis addon in the addon folder but its all pure in there. "C:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2.exe" -mod=beta

    Beta patch error

    It does not seem to be a shortcut problem. When executing the game from the beta patch map i get this error.
  8. I'm having some problems playing Arma2 on my computer, the full retail game and the demo are both unplayable when my computer is connected to the internet. The screen hangs for a few seconds and then runs fine for 10-20 seconds before hanging again. I thought it might be because of my firewall/antivirus and tried shutting it all down including windows firewall, but still no joy. Only when i pull the network cable from my pc does the game play normal. I'm thinking its a windows 7 64bit problem and offcourse i cant play online now:rolleyes: Anybody else had this happen to them?

    Command structure?

    Would somebody that already has the game check if teams in you squad (red/green/blue) can use their own formations this time? or if they still use the players/leaders default formation.

    ArmA 2 German Release Thread

    I would not mind having a peak at the c-130 if possible. i'd like to know if the ramp is animated and if you can walk around inside the cargohold. Same for the Osprey
  11. The dutch interview also says that a 3d editor is not included in the initial release, however it does hint at the possibility that it will be added later in a patch.

    ArmA2 Media Blowout Twitter Q&A

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but is there any word if the teams under the players command "red/green/blue/etc" can now have their own formations?

    HALO modification

    Well i think the problem with the OFP mod was that all the content was ripped from Halo CE. So remember kids create your own content, it might just be better than crappy pc rips. Not that microsoft will allow any mod on halo atm But i too have thought about creating some content for Arma from the halo universe allready started a warthog just to see how good i could get it to move in Arma.

    Your Feedback on Queen's Gambit

    Hehe, i do 6+ years of OFP/Arma has tought me that  I'v always been a huge fan of the BIS games but even i am getting ticked off by the flaws in this game. Flaws that have been present in OFP/Resistance in Arma an i know wil be in Arma 2! And yes Arma does have it's flaws true fans must admit that and i do, i just hope that BIS wil get these types of things fixed before they release Arma 2 and not waiste time on creating "realistic" environments when the core functions of the engine are still basically the same as 7 years ago.

    Your Feedback on Queen's Gambit

    Just got my copy yesterday, jezus what a mess i cant even get past the first mission in the royal flush campaign because my commander keeps getting hit. But i guess you cant fix a addon if the original game is still broken. Example: Me with an AK and an enemy 50 meters away with an AK, i go thru 1 clip and hit nothing he shoots me between the eyes with one bullet thru a cloud of grenade smoke. You got alot of AI work to do before Arma 2 is released guys. However Porto Rules

    Your Feedback on Queen's Gambit

    Does anybody in the Netherlands have QG yet? seems to be a screw up with the release date.

    Arma 2

    I for one dont mind Arma 2 coming out in a year or 2 mainly because arma was so cheap to purchase I do love arma as i did OFP but i do agree with some of the comments made on this board BIS needs to step it up with Arma 2. And of addons, if we can port stuff over to Arma 2 without much effort it could really strenghten the modding community between the 2 games. If anyone still plays arma that is.

    Submersables And Scuba Kit

    Hehe yeah love stargate, but i meant atlantis in an historical/folklore context like underwaters ruins. I think water combat/environment has the potential to be huge in Arma, way more than it ever was in OFP. Oilrigs anyone? I even got all happy when i noticed the shipwreck on porto island

    Submersables And Scuba Kit

    Since 1.08 soldiers take health dammage under water  So this will have to be overcome. But think of the possibilities underwater wrecks, riffs, ATLANTIS!!

    Functioning Elevators?

    What ever happend to those working elevators in the hotels? I remember seeing them in some press video's just before Arma was released but havent heard anything since then. I dont really play the campaign so i have no idea if they do work in those missions. Might there be a script that triggers the use of these things in the editor/user mission. Thanks

    Time for Weapon Saftey!

    Right so i was playing Arma multiplayer today, for the first time ever (very cool btw) And in one mission on the base "safe zone" my finger slipped onto the primary mouse button and i almost blew a team members head off So why dont the Arma weapons have a safety switch? it would be simple to add a new magazine to the config so the weapon starts with the saftey on and this would prevent friendly fire in safe areas. Why hasn't this been modded in yet? even i could do this and i suck at scripting What do people think about this? discuss minions!!!!

    Time for Weapon Saftey!

    Yeah i think most "normal" player use those common sence tactics, however i missed this option in OFP since day1 and was sad to see it missing from Arma also. So OK maybe i was talking about those special situations where your finger slips due to a "Chitto related Accident" BTW this would not be such a stupid feature for the legion of people who dont seem to understand that you cant start shooting in circles in your own base I think i got TK about 20 times last night playing Evo0 Maybe with a safety feature they will get the message.

    8500GT Stutter?

    I have a problem with my Nvidia 8500GT when i play arma it seems to play the game smooth but after about 10 seconds the screen/animations of the soldiers begins to stutter, so when i start running in a straight line with my soldier arma will stutter every 3 seconds or so like the soldier stops running for 0.1 seconds and then runs fine for 3 seconds. This also happens when i move the mouse in freeview, moves smooth and then just jumps to its next position. This happens in both 1.05 and 1.07 beta on all settings low/high Here are my specs. AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ 2 Gigs Ram Asus M2N-E SLI Motherboard 3D-club Nvidia 8500GT videocard (PCIe) DirectX 9.0c Newest Nvidia forceware drivers (158.22) Windows XP professional SP2 Anybody heard of this before. Might have to return the card for one in the same price range, any suggestions?
