    ArmA is just ... disappointing

    This is more to do with your graphics card than the game. Graphics cards have a "native" resolution in which it was optimised for as it's the generic resolution most games will be played, usually its 1024 x 768 on more recent cards. It's just the way it's designed. You can notice this on many many 3D games, not just ArmA, so considering this an ArmA bug is somewhat unfair. Sorry but you have no idea what you're talking about. A gfx card works no different in 1024 than in 1280 for example. It's all a matter of resources.
  2. you could try adjusting the amount of ram that vista recognizes. start -run - msconfig - boot - advanced options - maximium memory. this way you wouldn't have to physically remove the ram and could readjust the ram by changing the amount and restarting vista. i prefer it to yanking ram or dual-booting into a legacy os. <g> it works for my ati card. i can't say if it'd address any game stability issues that forceware users have from the 4gb. And that my friends, is the solution. (for now, get going BIS)
  3. I have the exact same problem. Maybe Bohemia should step up the efforts to resolve Vista compatibility?

    To keep the torrent-network healthy you need to upload at least as much as you download.

    Wishlist for the next 1.06 patch

    I hope BIS fixes that damn helicopter rearm bug. Reported it back in 1.02. (Fire all rounds of ammo, try to reload @ ammo truck = impossible)

    Patch 1.05 impressions

    Ammo bug still there. I reported it @ Biki in 1.02, and still not fixed. Get a Cobra, fire all hellfire missiles and try to reload at an ammo truck. Impossible.

    AI detection in demo vs. retail

    This is one of the most annoying things about ArmA, you cannot hide in vegetation. The AI will always know where you are.

    Patch v1.05

    I also bet you expect your bacon and egg to be ready for you when you wake up in a morning, when infact you really got up to take a leak at 2am. Alot of people have been waiting months for an update so have some patience. Be thankfull you got a game thats better then 102. Of course not. I'm grateful for every egg and bacon i get, especially if I paid 39€ for it. I have never seen so many ass kissers on the same forum at once. It's disgusting.

    I would like to know that as well. But in my case the german version.

    AMD or Intel?

    To be able to understand the concept of multiple processors (cores) you must understand how threading and scheduling works. It's kind of pointless trying to explain in a single forum post. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_%28computer_science%29 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scheduling_%28computing%29

    AMD or Intel?

    I don't buy that theory. Most of the early ArmA players are so called "first adopters". That is they often buy the latest gadgets. It's more or less natural that the guys who always stays on top of the mountain of hardware also are among the first to snatch a copy of ArmA.
  15. Yeah I understand that. But there is a language setting in options that I am unable to manipulate. Why?
