  1. Hello I always loved the world of Operation Flashpoint and Arma series for it's realistic countryside, nature, people, vehicles and such things. I would like to experience it in a peaceful way for once :) I was thinking if there are some missions or MODs which would include adventure like story with meeting people, travelling around the island, investigating, looking for some things somewhere and such, but in a civilian non combat settings. You get my idea right? If you know about something like that let me know!

  4. seems like I am asking too late and nobody remembers anymore :-]
  5. Hello, I still wonder how is the menu "action" generated for my team members and how is the order of options chosen. I still play the first ArmA 2 campaign Harvest Red just because I suddenly have a pc to run it well :) So I am not sure how much it has changed since then. I sincerely hope that a lot ;) In Dogs of War mission it took a long time already and O'Hara was out of ammo. So I thought he will just pick up some AK from some recently killed CDKZ soldier of which there were several nearby. I went to an action menu and there was "pick up AKS, drop..." No other weapon choice was there, so I ordered him to do it. As usually he decided to walk around 300m somewhere away and to my amusement he got into a pool and began swimming! I am not sure if it was there already or he dropped it there, but in the center there was some equipment floating on water. He was still swimming around not seeming to ever finish that action whatever it should have been. I ordered him to get back and to my surprise he was stripped of all weapons! I also tried to swim into that pool but there was no way to pick up those floating items, so I am not sure what it was. We then headed back, I found a dead body few meters from our original location where I ordered him to pick up AKS and ordered him to stop and then action / gear. Got him an AK74 and ammo from that dead body. Why the heck couldn't I do that from an action menu and where was that AKS I don't have any clue :-] I have complained about similar nonsenses back in times of Operation Flashpoint but it seems nothing have changed...

    Where is Lagushina?

    That is really cool if you need to buy a new game to get fixes for the old one you happen to play once again :-]

    Where is Lagushina?

    Mirek Lagushina is to be in the church from 11 to 12:30. I got there at 12:28, waited 40minutes and she never appeared nowhere around! Obviously a bug. I really hesitate to play the mission again, do all the other tasks until it is finally 12:30 and then risk that she does not appear again:( Maddox hardly ever lands at the exact spot you click on, he somehow chooses only the general area on his own, but quite often he does not stop, but slowly slides to a side and then crashes into trees or power lines :-\ Another interesting behavior of him is that if you for example want to shoot guys in the castle on the hill you want Maddox to stay in the air so you can easily aim, so you order him to fly into the forest somewhere near. Sometimes he flies there and hovers in the air perfectly still which is what I want and is quite logical, because there is no place to land, BUT many times he REALLY wants to land even when there is just dense forest under us, so he simply crashes. When I see him descending into trees I need to stop firing the machine gun and have to really quickly press 8,1,1 to order him to fly somewhere else before he kills us :o About the AI getting in vehicles - you really don't need to explain it, I think it is quite clear how it happens. But my point is, that it is very silly and unnecessary, because in radio I DO NOT say each member to get in as passanger, get in as gunner and so on. I just say "all, get in that chopper" ! That way logically it does not matter where. Just friking get in there because we are under fire or something and need to get the hell out of here! If I want to prevent this "negative" cannot get in situation I either have to order everyone to get in as passangers using number commands which is more difficult and needs much more keypresses and as I said sometimes can cost my life, or I just sit as a passenger and not a gunner, because AI always wants to be gunner. The third choice is to be the first to get in and then order rest of my team to get in and watch them how painfully they try to find their path around the chopper, because it is usually slowly moving causing AI to be really nervous about it and reconsider the pathfinding multiple times :-] This behavior is there since Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crisis and happens with all vehicles. It cost me life many times! Anybody knows if it was improved in ArmA 3?

    Where is Lagushina?

    Version 1.11 four years later and this mission is still bugged like hell! Unbelievable! Lagushina's car is in front of the church but she never comes out and she does not seem to be in any other village! Artillery support comm option disappears after a short period of playing. Maddox frequently crashes into trees killing the whole team. Cannot zoom the map after boarding Huey unless I press backspace to cancel transport option. After I order team to get in to a chopper and then get in as gunner, they say negative and must be ordered again to get in...
  9. Hello, so I have a current ArmA 2 steam version and I would love to load my old saves from years ago when I was playing a campaign (and did not finish from various reasons :-) I have saves from year 2010 from a current version from back then, but they do not seem to be working today. I put the .ArmA2Profile file into documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles and Saved\ca\missions\campaign\ besides that. It appeared as a player profile in the game, but there is no option to continue with the campaign. Any way to make it work please?
  10. Hello I bought the game some time ago and now want to install it on a new computer but I found out I probably left the DVD in the old computer's drive and it is gone. All I have is a box and a code. But this does not work for the arma2 free edition apparently. Where can I get the game installation please? Thank you
  11. guys thank you for your great stories about your weird adventures in manhattan mission, I am so amused :-D As for me I am still in this mission, because I had a pause in playing Arma before I tune my pc a bit to be faster. Now I am trying to finish it finally and guess what - After meeting Lagushina, there is no chopper coming for her, so I will have to kill her it seems - is that enough to complete the task? For the mission to be even harder I cannot enter the smuggler's house. O killed a couple of villagers around it, but there is no option to open the door or anything, so I am stuck with this task as well. Great :-\
  12. Hello, check out this video and tell me WTH is that? I keep experiencing this bug since the Operation Flashpoint 1! http://www.megaupload.com/?d=46SZ9SW4 What happens - I am a gunner of this UAZ and I want my 2 to get in a driver seat. He gets in but then gets off immediatelly. Then I switch to a driver seat and order 2 to get in as a gunner. He does the same. WTF? The other two members are in the second car.
  13. 1. I wouldn't be so sure about this. Try running your system with 2 cores disabled (can be set in msconfig tool) and you will see it is slightly slower then with all 4cores enabled! At least on my system the difference was 3fps (35 and 38) 2. Video card is not a big issue here. The game really just needs a faster CPU. I tested over and underclocking of my GTX275 and nothing happened. But when I underclocked my CPU to 2.7GHz I lost 10fps! 3. The performance is THE SAME under Windows 7 as under Vista! At least on my system. Not even beta version of forceware did anything, so on my system the CPU is a bottleneck. I play at 1600*1200. Details medium, postprocess low, AA normal, Aniso high and I barely get average 25fps in campaign which is bad :-\
  14. hm so I guess I will just restart the mission and hope it will not happen again :-\
  15. Hello I play Razor 2 mission and I just cleared the CDKZ point on Cerna Hora. The game autosaved and I called Maddox to transport me. He crashed into trees so I rather loaded that fresh autosave but then I realized I cannot fire my weapons! It sounds like an empty clip and ammo numbers are red like I have no ammo, but I do have it! I cannot reload and I cannot fire a pistol neither throw a grenade! Medic healed me, but it did not help! I cannot even take any weapon from a corpse and I could before I loaded that save! I am glad this happened right at the beginning of the mission so I can restart it without much wasted effort, but I think this is a bug and I don't want to encounter this later in the mission :-\ I will rather backup my saves often
  16. I am no longer surprised that Bistudio cannot fix some arma 2 bugs. They don't have time because they work on a datadisk Operation Arrowhead :-]

    Game crashing to death

    Check the stability of your system with Prime 95 http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?p=1400616#post1400616

    Patch 1.03 Satisfaction Survey

    Have you tested your system with Prime95 as I wrote here already? I seem to have no stability problems with 1.03

    you mean increasing to more visible distance??

    1.03 CTD & save games

    saves from 1.02 cannot be loaded in 1.03. So I have to restart a mission in progress which was almost complete :-(

    Patch 1.03 Satisfaction Survey

    BiStudio I would have voted better if you wrote one important sentence into the patch release notes: "finish your current campaign mission before applying the patch!" I was quite disappointed when arma crashed failing toload the save after I attempted to continue in my last mission. Fortunatelly I backed up the whole 1.02 folder, so I replaced it and the save loaded then so I can finish my mission with 1.02 and then switch back to 1.03. Good thing: the performance is better. Igot ArmaMark score about 200points bigger then in 1.02 and mainly the space capsule test was noticable less choppy.

    Patch 1.03 Satisfaction Survey

    Can you be more specific about your fast processor? I am quite sure that 9800GT is not a limit... Just try to underlock or overclock your CPU and you will see change in fps. Doing the same with you graphics card (for example with Riva Tuner) will not change anything.

    Patch 1.03 Satisfaction Survey

    You bought 4870x2 for Arma2? :j: It will probably be quite unused unless you have a very big monitor :) Arma2 needs just a fast CPU.

    Arma II is going on the shelf...

    Really?? Can you be more specific with that performance boost? You mean more fps or less stuttering or loading? I guess video drivers will be the cause more then an OS. ---------- Post added at 10:38 ---------- Previous post was at 10:35 ---------- superweapons I have actually a better system then you but my performance is really not that great! And I have visibility about 2800. Unfortunatelly I could not install 1.03 yet because of some error so tell me - did this patch make the game run better for you? I know it depends highly on the CPU frequency for me, so it will be better when I get my water cooling mounted and OC my CPU to 4GHz :)
  25. that's OK I can actually have it in the same location just with different name. Thanks
