  1. Thank you BI, the demo is excellent! Cheers for making it scaleable as to be able to playable on my ageing rig (as per sig). I'm sure on the larger missions it'll probably crawl to a halt, but at least I'm having ace fun with Trial by Fire. To those that are deliberating, I'd say give it a go, turn everything right down, install the 182 drivers and enjoy! I'd say that I'm having just as much fun as ArmA on higher settings.

  2. Can anyone tell me if the Omega drivers allow you to easily change the 'render frames ahead' option? I'm having great difficulty getting this to work this using the Nvidia 169.21 drivers currenty installed even using the coolbits and other hacks. I understand from the 171.16 drivers that this setting is reintroduced but as its barely a beta, im reluctant to use it especially as otherwise the current drivers for pretty good for me. (specs below)


  3. I accept no responsibility if you knacker your speakers


    To quickly check your original stereo recording to see how good it is to remove the lyrics (using Balschoiws method above), use a hifi that uses four sockets for output (Left - Gnd, Right - Gnd), remove both loudspeakers from the back of your stereo and insert one loudspeaker that plugs into Left and Right leaving both Gnd sockets empty. As the loudspeaker is outputting the level difference between the two channels, everything that is equal in both channels will cancel out, whilst everything else will remain. The effect is poor to mediocre depending on the original recording and is as a result of the process, in mono.

    A better result would be to search for instrumental or a cappella versions of the track.

    I took the rubber boat for a ride and it put me on land for my challenge...

    I had this too but thought it was deliberate - the mission said something along the lines of 'you'll have to do this on foot'. Not tried any of the other missions for the boat.

    Unlocked a few items last night (Camel, smoke grenade, infantry soldier IIRC). Are they unlocked in a set or random order does anyone know?

    Had an issue with the smoke grenade as the only mission it gave me was the shooting range and I didn't get any points (as you cant destroy anything with a smoke grenade).

    Only towards the end of playing last night I noticed that points gained so far for each item is desplayed at the bottom of the statistics screen but I dont know if the values are stored when the armory is exited (though the unlocked items stay unlocked). I'll have a bit more of a play tonight and will check if the values stay.

    All in, a great idea nicely implemented.

  5. I keep getting this on instalation:

    Quote[/b] ]Update 1.05-1.06\ADDONS\AIR.PBO.UPD cannot be applied, error xdelta3 returned error code: 1


    Quote[/b] ]Update 1.06-1.07\ADDONS\AIR.PBO.UPD cannot be applied, error xdelta3 returned error code: 1

    Clicking ignore and it carries on happily.

    Am using the Deutsche Online Version if that helps at all?

    Anyone else had this?

    I'll let it finish installing and will see if it works or not.

  6. Quote[/b] ]Well, now we all know to never buy a downloadable game in the future.

    I dissagree. Apart from a few issues with updating the missions, it seems to be fine.

    Anyway, I tried tweeking a few things and cleared out addons which wern't there initially and got the following errors. Bizzarely, unlike other posters here, my campaign file updated without problem.

    Quote[/b] ]Please be patient. This update may appear to take a long time to complete. It is updating and installing very large data.

  7. First impressions is that im impressed. Things seem to work and major changes (for the good) work really well.

    Athetically the menus are much improved, love the new night vision goggles, instant in and out of map is a god send.

    Its everything and more so I'm happy, infact I havent been this happy since ArmA came out.
