    Beginners Multiplayer Server UK

    Hi, I am from the UK, not very advanced and I'd also be very interested in getting in on some multiplayer games. Please let me know if you'd be interested. Thanks.

    Freeze after 10 - 25 minutes play

    Well, I've kind of got the game not to crash after trying for months. I set ALL ingame settings to "low" (not really acceptable on a 2x8800GTX, Core2Duo x6800 @ 3.4GHz, 2GB RAM). Then I added this to the shortcut for the game " -nosplash -maxmem=512". Voila, haven't had a crash since. Not sure what is causing it still, but at least the crashes have gone away. Hope this helps someone.

    SLI questions

    I can't run SLI on my 2x8800GTX's . It slows the game down to a crawl! I literally get double the FPS in single card mode.

    Cannot Create System Memory Surface

    Try adding " -maxmem=768" without the quotes to your game shortcut. If that doesn't work then try setting maxmem to 512 and also 1024 until it works. That is the only way that I could find to fix this error. Either that or lower the quality of the graphics in the options menu. Hope this helps.

    1.08 Troubleshooting thread.

    Oh yeah, sorry, didn't check the link too much, but I'm running the game on Vista 32bit so I'd need to go to an earlier vista driver (which I believe is still 158.24). The problem doesn't only occur on Vista though, it also occurs on XP, I created a thread about the issue here: Thread

    1.08 Troubleshooting thread.

    I'd prefer not to go back to the 158.24's if possible, as I have had the same problem since the 158.18 WHQL drivers. That and someone else posted that they get a crash with the 158.24's. Thanks for the suggestion though. I have disabled all ArmA profiles that I was running (only for SLI, which is now disabled). You know my driver version, DX is up to date, sound drivers are up to date. I'm really not sure what to do .

    Well, I couldn't tell if the maxmem parameter fixed the surface error because it crashed to desktop within 3 minutes of loading the game. .

    Thanks for the tip. I'm running with the texture detail on default, but I'll try changing the maxmem paramter.

    I just got the 8007000e error message. I have never had it before . Also I am getting random unexplained crashes to desktop after 10-15 minutes in the game. I haven't noticed much difference on FPS visually, but I haven't run fraps or anything to actually benchmark it yet.

    Patch 1.08 - Released!

    Right, I just booted the game up, all the new stuff appears to be there and working. Looks good! Unfortunately though the patch doesn't seem to have fixed the random crash to desktop issues that I was having with 1.05 . It just crashed.

    Patch 1.08 - Released!

    I got my copy from the "www.gbe-clan.com" mirror. I'm still here waiting for it to install, but I'll be going to have a go at it soon. EDIT: And yeah, that is the right filesize, 564 MB.

    Patch 1.08 - Released!

    I've downloaded the patch, unzipped it and the install program is now working away installing the patch . I'm really excited! EDIT: The patch is nearly a GB when zipped, the install process is taking forever!

    I've now submitted this bug to the bugtracking system. Hopefully we can get it fixed soon!

    Could someone add this to the bugtracker?

    Freeze after 10 - 25 minutes play

    I just tried the new NVIDIA drivers (158.45) for Vista and I didn't get a crash on the main menu this time (I left it running for about 15 minutes with everything on Very High). However, 10 minutes into playing a level the game crashed to desktop (but it didn't freeze) so I'm thinking maybe it might be an NVIDIA driver issue? The new drivers certainly helped, they just didn't fix the problem . At least I can sit watching the main menu now .
