  1. I'm aware I don't have a power PC by any means but here are my specs: ATI 5670 2GB DDR3 Q8200 @ 2.3 GHZ (Quad) 8GB RAM Now...I know for a fact, the last time I played ArmA, probably a year ago I played with a 9800gt on the same PC and it looked great and played great. My old card died and I have heard that the 5670 is about even with the 9800 so I picked it up, yet ArmA II runs much worse on it, at least as much as I remember. This is also a fresh install of ArmA II so I have no idea what kind of tweaks were running on my old install and all that but I'm just curious what kind of settings/tweaks you guys would recommend
  2. How do these modules work? Do you simply place them on the editor? I have tried that but there does not seem to be any effect. I have been trying the "Simulation" module because I assume that is the module used in the Campaign.
  3. Thats the thing. While I don't get much vegetation LOD switching I get a lot of vehicle LOD switching...especially the humvees. Player model LOD issues seem improved same with buildings but the humvees in my game keep LOD switching.
  4. Well, for me it runs worse. But I guess it is really varying.
  5. No, he's right. I get insane texture pop in and the vegetation looks hideous. And in Takistan walking into any of those areas near that main road makes my FPS turn to shit.
  6. Seriously, just walking into those tiny little town areas next to the road makes my FPS drop when I get better FPS in the massive towns in Chernarus. I have to agree about the vegetation it looks horrible. Reminds me of OFP:DR

    3d resolution or AA

    Like others have said increasing 3d Res kills my framerate. While I can jack AA to medium or so and get great visuals.
  8. ugh. PeterGames has a horrible policy not to mention the extra cost your paying. Just know that after I think 48 hours or so after you've installed the game you can't download again. Back that shit up or buy insurance.
  9. Oh my god. I love you, didn't see that epic song coming. All we need is a Yusuf Amir model and a golden Little Bird :D

    Where/how/when to buy ARMA2:OA?

    I think I'm going to get the retail version. Seems like a safer bet with mod compatibility plus I like the idea of having a physical copy much more. But I never found a US store selling copies, hopefully my Gamestop is carrying OA on day 1.
  11. A whole lot of people have it in case you haven't noticed.
  12. Is OA standalone patched to 1.05? I'm wondering if maybe ArmA II patched to 1.07 combined with OA thus makes OA 1.07. What I'm saying doesn't really make sense but I'm sure someone understands what I mean.
  13. Really? I've heard differently, not saying your wrong or anything but I've gotten the notion that performance has improved.

    1.07 Stop using -winxp tag now

    Does anyone use Maxmem command anymore? I have 8 gigs of RAM but I don't know if the engine is optimized for greater RAM now or not.

    Tactile Vest

    Wow...a vest to mimic being shot...When I play a video game I don't want to experience pain or discomfort.

    Did Anyone Buy Arma 2 From Nexway?

    I have a dvd burner. It still didn't seem necessary for me to be unable to download a product that I legally own again.
  17. Just curious how OA will run since I havn't played ArmA II with this computer: Windows Vista 64 bit Intel Quad Core Q8200 @ 2.33ghz Nvidia 9800GT 1GB VRAM 8GB DDR2 RAM I know I can run the game but mainly I want to know how well I can run it, we talking high settings here or...

    Did Anyone Buy Arma 2 From Nexway?

    Word of advice. Don't buy from foreign retailers. Especially in a different language. I now have paid over 50 dollars for a game that I cannot even play now. I had same issue as PLebre. Bought game, played it, reformatted. No way to get backup, support was virtually non-existent.
  19. You may lock/delete the thread. I know that they have a 14 day policy and I have contacted them to no avail. I'll have to dish out 50 more dollars. Damn.
  20. Okay so when ArmA II was released I bought it from the European distributor Petergames (I'm American) because I simply couldn't wait. I downloaded, played it. Then like six months ago my PSU died, taking pretty much everything with it. So I got a new computer a few months ago, booted up ArmA and now I want to play ArmA II again so I contact Petergames, who doesn't reply, I'm assuming because I don't speak German. So I'm wondering if anybody bought from Petergames and knows how to obtain there downloader and reinstall ArmA II, which I paid in full and I would very much not like to dish out 50 more bucks just to play a game I already legally own.
  21. Yeah, when I get it I'll probably get it off Steam since it is the best Digital Distributor I know.
  22. Figured it out, Petergames has a retarded 14 day policy where you can only download 14 days after purchase. Unless of course you pay 10 euros for a year long extension. Damn, looks like I have to go out and buy ArmA II which isn't available at retail anywhere near me.
  23. Yes, my game was in German. At the time I was able to use a language fix but anyway I can't find a place to login on Petergames. Anyone know?
  24. I agree. Tim sounds like he hasn't even hit puberty. His skills reflect his age too, how many times do I have to fly around before Tim can hit his fucking target.
  25. I can't get past taking down the planes at Sparta. I either get to close and get shot down or the planes get airborne and I am eventually massacred. Do the sidewinders lock? It seems like they don't lock.
