  1. Another perfect example:

    You have an electric bill... and some jerk at the electric company thinks its funny to randomly turn your electricity off once or more per day.. your paying for it..

    (True Story)

    Thats funny yesterday about noon I saw a guy in an orange jacket working at the network box next to my property a couple hours later I notice my phone doesn't work. After a phone call and about 19 hours my phone works again. with a phone call from Bob the repair guy telling me its fixed and I really don't plan on suing. Cheers Vic. confused_o.gif

    This is a dead issue the only thing that should be done is BIS actually start to implement some sort of anti cheat weather it be PB or a central login to play or whatever.

    Stop these guys and another group will show up to ruin your party.

    Better answer is to control who comes to the party.

  2. I also had a 9800 pro and it wasn't really up to the job for this game.

    I replaced it with a X1650 Pro and life is much better.

    @Dwarden, I had similar bugs/artifacts, the thin black line down from weapon. I turned off catalyst A.I. in Control center and it seemed to go away. Not sure if it the same as yours though your pics look a bit different.

  3. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I Purchased czech verison via a PayPal account.

    After several emails back and forth to sprocket I received cd key from softwrap. (and yes I thought they handled this very professionally and was pleased)

    So then all was needed to install game was enter cd key.

    In other words no softwrap online activation required.

    Game was playable, but not in Multiplayer, CTD everytime.

    Was hopeful when 1.02 came out that maybe CTD problem was fixed.

    After patch to 1.02 I get the sotwrap activation window on launch. Entered info from conformation email from softwrap and software says activation sucessfull thank you for your purchase.

    I relaunch game and still get softwrap activation window but now when I enter information it says that the key has already been used, and to conact support_softwrap.com

    Can't play the game at all now due to this.

    I have emailed arma_AT_idea-games.com

    also support_AT_softwrap.com

    and also support_AT_BIStudios.com (the wiki page recomends you send crash info here)

    No repsonse other than auto-reply from arma_AT_idea-games.com

    Is there a list of support hours they read these emails so we may know when to expect a response?


    Quote[/b] ]Do they have a number we could call?

    From softwrap site:

    Quote[/b] ]Contacting support by email is usually more productive as the agents are able to ensure all the relevant data is collected before a response is formulated. Support at times requires communication to 2nd or 3rd level support agents to be consulted and this cannot be done through telephone support.

    First time using quotes not sure I did that right whistle.gif

  4. OK, so I still have no luck in multiplayer.

    I have Updated my OpenAL driver.

    I updated all Vid Drivers and Audio Drivers.

    Seems like I read somewhere that EAX could be problem so I disabled that.

    I sent crash files to support_AT_Bistudio.com, waiting to hear back.

    Placebo, should I send these to your address also?

    Also didn't post systems specs before so here they are.

    P4 2.8ghz

    1G RAM DDR400

    Radeon X1650 Pro AGP 512mb

    Audigy 2

    Czech ver 1.01 from sprocket

    DirectX 9.0c

    Anyone, please heeeeeelp me!!  banghead.gif

    Any Ideas?

  6. Hello all,

    I don't know if this will help, but...

    I Purchased czech ver from sprocket via a PayPal account.

    With regards to Login failed I was told they had a problem with their servers blocking a few IP's, problem was fixed right away.

    My Download was only the setup.exe file and I received no CD key in my first conformation email from IDEA. I was told this was a problem with all ArmA purchases made with paypal.

    They supposedly are working on correcting the issue. (maybe have already)

    They did send me an email with my CD key (after 3 days worth of emails back and forth) and all is installed and seems to be working fine.

    None this happened very quickly though, I think they are sorting out where the confusion/errors took place.

    I will say Martin at Sprocket has been very helpfull and has always returned my emails.

  7. No probably not was just checking, most peeps I know put it in their MPmissions folder.

    I was more curious if you were leaving all the ai enabled for CPU side. Using less may that cut down on the number of tanks and other vehicles but probably wouldn't do much to increase infantry if thats what you are going for.

  8. I sure hope this thread doesn't get moved to mission editing.


    When you are playing in SP mode, Do you have the Mission.pbo in your SPmissions folder or the MPMissions one?

    Also when you play against the AI, do you leave all AI on for the CPU side?

  9. Ahhh the wonderful world of rts. Seems like just yesterday we were driving all over the island to find junk vehicles to earn money.(original rts). Great work Karr you've really brought this thing a long way.

    Quote[/b] ]and I started to notice the frame loss about the time we bombed it  

    and yet we still lost

    Thought we were using artillery. tounge_o.gif
