  1. Dude, put down the thesaurus and step away. I'm beginning to think this is more about you than the *game*. I hope the mods lock this thread because it accomplishes absolutely nothing.

    Thank you kind sir. Downloading now!

    cant find on steam?

    I can't seem to download it without paying again. I received an email with the code in it - but can't find how to apply the code to start the download!
  4. Agreed. Up until I had that account disabled problem, Steam worked flawlessly. This is partly why I was so pissed when that happened. My issue is strictly with their poor support and has nothing to do with the software or distribution methods. It simply works. All that being said, I will still have second thoughts about buying future games from Steam.
  5. I've used Steam since they came into being. I've been a avid supporter of their service because it's easy and convenient. But something happened recently to change my attitude a bit. When I tried to logon the other night I was notified my account had been disabled. I checked my email to see if they sent me anything that might explain this. Nothing. So I followed the directions on their site to submit a support ticket (there is NO WAY to contact them via phone for immediate support.) While I waited for some response I searched for posts that might indicate what the issue was or what to expect from support. Turns out the average wait time for a response from support is 3 to 7 days!!! Unacceptable! To make a long story short, I can no longer recommend Steam based solely upon their HORRIBLE support. I did get the issue resolved after three days, but during that time I could not play any steam purchased games. Their response was that my account might have been hacked, but what bothered me MOST was that they never bothered to notify me and left it up to me to initiate the support fix. It's bothersome because they took the initiative to suspend my account - ostensibly to protect me from fraud - but didn't find it necessary to contact me when they did it. Steam is great for convenience but if you ever have a problem that requires support they fail miserably. If and when they can increase their level of support by providing a call center and longer support hours and commit themselves to quick turn around times, I might consider recommending them again. But as it stands now I cannot. Lastly, I originally purchased A2 and OA on Steam but ended up buying hard copies from the local store to avoid some of the issues these particular games had with Steam. I should note most other Steam games don't suffer from the same sorts of issues that A2/OA do/did.
  6. Google Ultimate Boot CD (or DVD) - lots of tools to fix these sorts of problems. Download it, burn it and boot from it. Sounds like your boot block got corrupted.
  7. Thanks for the video. I would have to say (not having played it) that they actually look much better to me. The only ones I can see that might be too fast is the weapon switch and even then it isn't too bad. The kneeling and such look perfect to me. That being said, I may change my mind once I test it, but I'll have to vote for a keeper with a possible small tweak in the future.

    ARMA 2: OA beta build 77819

    Yes. I have seen similar instances with opposing forces literally running side by side for a few seconds before one got shot. It was odd, but not really a problem IMHO.

    ARMA 2: OA beta build 77777

    Seriously? They RUINED that game with all the crafting and hats and duels and upgrades - it's so out of balance and fubar'd at this point it's not even funny.

    ARMA 2:OA beta patch 77750

    I see this too, and I actually sort of like it. It seems to give more detail to the grass from a distance. I've already decided it's not distracting enough to be an issue for me.

    ARMA 2:OA beta patch 77750

    There really needs to be a games industry award for "Most Dedicated Developer." BIS would win hands down every time. I've already bought ARMA2/OA twice - I may just have to find a way to get more money to these guys. I think I'll buy the BAF DLC - it's the only thing I don't have. Seriously these guys are the gold standard for game devs IMHO.

    ArmA2:OA Beta Patch Build 77706

    OMG! Downloading now...
  14. It should work on any building that has positions. Either the buildings on Lingor don't have them or it's a bug. I'll try it myself on Lingor and let you know.
