    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?

    Patch 1.08 - Released!

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

    Torrent will be ready in ~30 min.
  8. Just got the 505 version and installed it. I made sure every trace of my old Morphicon download was gone (searched the registry, deleted old dirs, settings etc.). To my great horror and suprise the 505 version defaults to german language. I noticed a language setting in the options but i am unable to manipulate it. Any ideas what's wrong? I'm going nuts!

    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.

    UK version still in Czech

    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.
  16. Yeah I understand that. But there is a language setting in options that I am unable to manipulate. Why?
  17. Yes that's true. Im using my brothers disc since I bought my version from Morphicon. (I hate starforce, don't speak german and I want 1.04). Any ideas how to change the language?

    UK Release Version

    Where is the changelog? BIS really needs to learn how to communicate with the community.
  19. Anyone know if the Sprocket cd-keys works with the ArmA version on the 505 disc? Planning to use my brothers 505 to get rid of the broken Sprocket install.

    AAR - Conquering The Town & Easter Egg

    Hi xpz The mission is the multiplayer (MP) coop included with the demo. Just download the demo. There are plenty of people playing it. It is always better to play Coop with friends rather than strangers on a public server. Using coms such as TS or ventrilo or the ArmA included VOIP also helps a great deal. The other thing is to actualy have person in charge You can also play any MP mission as single player (SP) too by just hosting it on your own machine and setting it to local LAN. Some missions play OK as single player some dont. The demo coop works well as an SP mission. The Demo Capture The Flag(CTF) could theoreticly be played SP on a dedicated server by using the Join in Progress(JIP) to control one side and have it assault the other, if doing this you might try handicaping one side with the number of units and set your self other goals such as defend one of the sand bag emplacements. The CTF makes a very good 2 player game as well if you dont like the crowds and enjoy tactical gaming and controling squads. Kind Regards Walker Thanks for the reply. I don't know how i missed that it is a bundled mission in the demo. Must have been drunk or something.

    official complaint to BIS

    So you're saying it's not being used in pirated versions? Only the major OFP fans imported or purchased download versions. The pirated versions floating around the net are coming with the english patch and are getting plenty of downloads (as all pirated games do - especially when they appear on the net before the worldwide release). You seriously think my whole post is a load of crap? Do some research before making statements like that. My facts? Where are your facts? With that kind of reasoning you may as well say that addons and user missions helps the piracy scene since anyone can download and use them.

    official complaint to BIS

    Actually your language patch is mostly being used with pirated versions of ArmA. So it may have reduced sales of the game. I know that wasn't the reason you made the patch, but unfortunately that is how it's being used. What a load of crap. The english patch was probably the best thing that has ever happened to ArmA. Without it the game wouldn't had the community kick-start it got in right at the release.
