  1. I haved the same problem only with Arrowhead. Try getting it on Sprocket or Steam.

    It still requires a credit/debit card..But really,there's no problem.I just wanted to give it a last try.I'll keep asking about it in our stores.Hope dies last you know :) Admins/Mods can delete the thread.


  2. No way that someone on this forums is going to give away his beloved Arma 2. Why don´t you just order it on the Internet and pay when it arrives? Amazon for example? In which country do you live?

    I don't want someone to give me his game,I'm just asking if someone has 2 games and if maybe he doesn't need one of them or wishes to trade it to me :rolleyes: .I tried ordering from amazon,but it still requires a credit/debit card..Trust me,I've searched a lot about this game.These forums are my last hope.I hope I don't sound like a douchebag.


  3. Hey guys.So here's my story.I first started off playing OFP with a friend of mine and from that game,I had probably the best multiplayer experience ever.After the release of ArmA 1,I managed to buy it also and continued playing online (even joined a clan for more than two years :) ).I have amazing memories from this game and I still play it from time to time.After the release of ArmA 2 though,it wasn't available in my country.I was searching for it everywhere,even wrote on some of our forums for someone to get it for me from another country and I would pay him.But no luck.Now I saw on one of our online-shopping sites, Operation Arrowhead available for preorders!!I was extremely happy and preordered it instantaneously :) I asked the lady that called on the phone,and on their forums also,is there a way I can buy ArmA 2 also,but they told me they don't have it and have no news about that product..I am happy about Operation Arrowhead,but I still want to play the vanilla ArmA 2.I thought about buying it online,but I don't have a credit card so I can't.

    So,my question is,if someone out there,who has two copies of ArmA 2 and doesn't need one of them,please send me a message.I can trade you a CD key for these games (legit of course) :

    ArmA 1

    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter

    I know it's not much,but if someone has two copies and one of them is just collecting dust,maybe you can help me out and you shall see me many times on the online battlefield.Thank you.


  4. Hi guys.I don't have ArmA 2,but I think about buying Operation Arrowhead.I have some questions though :

    1.Can you use the mods and addons like "ACE" ; "SLX" ; Soundmods ; etc. from ArmA 2 in Operation Arrowhead?

    2.Do you use the same patches as ArmA 2 or are there separate ones?

    That's what I can think of for now.Would really appreciate some information :rolleyes:


  5. Game settings:

    Texture Detail - Normal

    Anisotropic Filtering - Very high

    Terrain Detail - Normal

    Objects Detail - Normal

    Shadow Detail - Very high

    PostProcess Effects- Very high

    Fillrate - 125%

    PC:

    CPU - C2Duo E4300 1.8 (oc-ed to 2.5)

    RAM - 2GB

    GPU - 8800gts 320 (oc-ed at 600core , 1400 shader and 900 memory)

    Score - 2401

    I think it's not that bad for this system.I'm planning on upgrading it,but I still don't know which (the cpu or the gpu).Any suggestions will be appreciated.


  6. What you seem to have is that the whole scene goes very bright (but the textures stay good, be it very bright) and that's not what i'm talking about.

    What "we" are talking about is stuff like a wall with bricks texture looses it's brick texture permanently, unless you bang your head against it, and even then sometimes stays "textureless".

    I have this on viewdistance 2000, which is not normal for a 8800 GTX (1.14 didn't have this problem). I don't think "my" bug has to do with HDR at all, but more with lodswitching.

    Exactly.


  7. If you mean that certain objects switch to a very low LOD, i have the same thing here (8800GTX on 6750CoreDuo on VISTAX64).

    I'm pretty sure it has something to do with 1.15 as i didn't have it before.

    Of course lower LOD's could occur on 1.14 as well, but now some static objects (mostly walls, buildings, tree's) seem to get stuck on lower LODs sometimes.

    On some islands this happens more then on others (afghani often gets ugly at times).

    The weird thing is that when that happens, all ingame performance takes a dip and doesn't come out of it untill i alt tab.

    Besides that i also have the feeling the islands are shrouded in foglike conditions permanently. (there used to be a "milk" bug on the 8800, it's not as bad as it was back then, but still doesn't give the impression of "clear view")

    I wonder if ATI users have the same "problems"?

    Yes,it seems you have the same problem!Also as you said it happens more often on the Afghani maps.I really hope it gets fixed!Btw,I've also tried the "flush" command but didn't work.


  8. Greetings!So,I've been having this problem since I got ArmA and now I decided to write it down and search for some help..I've been looking over for the same/similar problem,but I didn't find one.Well here it is : Whenever I'm in a "quiet" area with not much people/npc or vehicles everything runs fine!But when I get to a more "violent" zone the textures (building and ground ones) start changing from "High" to "Low/Medium" and they keep switching like that "Low/Medium".When I zoom in on the ground they get a little better (something between High/Medium ),but when I zoom out they become "ugly" again..It's really annoying and I also recon drop in the FPS.I've tried many things - different drivers ; reinstalled my whole Windows! ; defragment the HDD ; deleting my ArmA profile and ArmA.cfg file ; changed video settings ingame (tried Low/Medium/High textures but same result) ; tried with mods and vanilla ArmA

    BTW,here's my system - VGA 8800gts 320mb ; CPU Intel C2Duo E4300 1.8 GHz (clocked to 3.0 GHz biggrin_o.gif (I've also tried the game without overclock)) ; RAM 2GB ; OS Windows XP 32bit Service Pack 3.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    P.S. ArmA version is 1.15 right now and VGA drivers 181.22


  9. Try to delete the ArmA.cfg file in C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\ArmA  Don't worry when you start the game it will create a new one.I don't have sli,but I have ArmA installed a loong time ago and it was running terrible and when I did that it started running a loot more smooth and less choppy.Also you can try forcing "Threaded optimization" "OFF" in the nVidia CP(I heard ArmA has problems with quad core).Good luck!


  10. Loool....That's what I was just hoping for!I even thought to post a topic somewhere to ask about something like this,but I thought that no one will make it or couldn't..Just tested it and wow...The game looks a lot better for me (not to talk about the FPS increase!!wink_o.gif.In Porto it was almost unplayable for me 'cause of the lots of grass,but now it's so beautiful and runs great inlove.gif Hehe,great job man!Great job thumbs-up.gif Wish you best!


  11. A cheap 480W PSU for an 8800!Wow...You should look at something around 600W mate.I am running a mediacore 600W PSU and it is good.Also it won't be bad to reinstall your Windows (starting things on a fresh OS are always better smile_o.gif )


  12. Putting the headphones "the other way around" is a very dangerous procedure!The patient may start to hear games correctly but real life backwards which will cause a major confusing in the brain causing it to go to a more stable state (all systems shutdown).You should be more carefull when telling people to do stuff like that!Be ashamed mad_o.gif


  13. Hmm...I've tried it,but I have a problem.I have replaced the FDF's AK,RPG and Grenade sounds,but when I go ingame I don't hear them.I can hear the RPG sound barely but the AK...nothing (even on max volume).I changed the volume in the config of the AK from -10db to +40 but still nothing (considering that the 2 sounds of the AK (the original and mine) are with quite the same volume).Maybe I'm missing something help.gif


  14. Sorry,I forgot to mention the pc specs and ArmA version.I'm running ArmA on 1.12 but it also happens in 1.08 aswell.Now here are my pc specs :

    VGA:8800gts 320

    CPU:C2Duo E4300 1.8 (stock) get's to 3.0 (overclock)

    RAM:2x1 GB 667MHz

    HDD:250GB 16mb

    I think those are the most important parts.I can give you the mobo and other stuff aswell if you like wink_o.gif

    @BraTTy - True.But when I Alt&Tap-ed from the game and checked the temps the VGA was about 52C which is fine (concidering I was with overclocking) and if there's a little offset from the Alt&Tap-ing I doubt that the real temps are higher than 55C.In the summer (last year) the VGA was keeping around 58-60C which is quite fine for the 8800's.Well over 62C it is quite dangerous biggrin_o.gif The CPU is fine.It gets around 40-45 with nice overclock.I need to remind you that I've tunrned off all overclocking and the temps should be a lot lower,but the problem still remains.So it seems that the problem is not caused by overheating or just artifacts from the overclocking.Well that's atleast what I think smile_o.gif

    @Viper23rd - No,I don't have problems like that in other games.I'm running v1.12 of ArmA but the problem also apears in 1.08 aswell.The driver version which I'm using is 174.70


  15. Greetings.Now,on to the point...

    First - the performance (stability)

    The performance/stability is quite weird in my situation...I play the game at everything on "Very High" on 1280x1024 with only disabled VS in the nVidia CP.The frames I get are playable and I'm pleased smile_o.gif , but it's not for a long time...Here are some of the things that happen to me - as I play with the nice fps,the game suddenly starts to slutter and I get really low fps and after a while it runs like a dream again!That's not that anoying so I don't mind about it much.Also if I play more time (over 1 hour) the game starts to run slower and slower (and no,it's not overheating) .It starts to "kill" my machine when I look at some vegetation objects.In that case if I restart the game it will run good again,but after a while again the same story over and over again confused_o.gif

    Now I'm going to talk about the graphical problems I seem to get really often.Here I'm going to show the kinds of graphical corruptions I get :

    <span style='color:orange'>The first and most common one is this -</span>

    48850837mx5.th.jpg

    When I look/zoom at the "weird shadows" I get really low FPS.

    <span style='color:red'>The second one most of the time is apearing after I see the first one -</span>

    47587062iy0.th.jpg

    Now this one is not only lowering seriously my fps,but if I look at it a little longer my pc gets a blue screen with some white words for about less then a half second and restarts.First I thought it was overheating.I saw the temperatures and everything was fine - ~50 GPU and ~40 CPU .Then I thought that maybe it's from the overclocking and I turned off all the overclocking (CPU,GPU etc.) .This one is really annoying.Sometimes it apears after the first graphical corruption and sometimes randomly (at early gameplay or late) confused_o.gif

    And also here are two more which are quite "rare" and they don'w apear much -

    83071245by3.th.jpg

    And

    98376058sc0.th.jpg

    I'm not quite concerned about the last two,but the first and second one are just an inormous pain in the arse crazy_o.gif So please if someone can give feedback of what can be causing all this and what shall I do,it'll be kindly accepted wink_o.gif


  16. Oh,I've had the same error before!I reinstalled the game and it got fixed, but you can try this:

    Create a new shortcut of your beta .exe And add the same stuff again (all your mods and stuff).Try to rewrite them not copy/paste (this way you can prevent any misspelled words you've done in your last shortcut).If it doesn't work,reinstall...

    P.S. Mine looks like this - D:\Games\ArmA\beta\arma.exe -mod=beta;@Addons;@EVA;@ArmAEffects;@CSM;@DrugsVegetaionFix;@VFAI;@CMCD_1ID_US_INF_REPLACEMENTS
