    Poll: Will you buy Arma III?

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to buy it now due to the steam requirement. I use sprint mobile wifi for my internet connection. It's my best option for where I am at. Using steam for DRM is ok even with sprint connection. Install, hop on, verify the game, then play offline. But there is another problem. Even though BI will sell ArmA III on disk, I know from experience, after install the game will immediately log on to steam and force an upgrade of the game. It will try and download an update, most likely several gb's in size. I won't be able to cancel the update, and it will render the game useless until I do update via steam. I bought Wargames:EE on disk, not knowing it required steam. I couldn't install it without steam running, and as soon as it installed, it tried to update. I couldn't play the game without the update applied, even though I wanted to play offine. Well that costs me several gb's of cap that I don't want to use for game updates. The same thing will happen with A3. I am very sorry to hear they went this route with Steam. So long and thanks for all the fish, BI! I guess I am stuck with A2:CO. If the poll numbers are correct, does BI really want to lose 20% sales due to the steam requirement? Just saying...... They are still a great developer. Hope to buy their product again in the near future....

  9. FYI...... From..... http://www.gamezone.com/news/04_26_10_08_11AM.htm Meridian4 Acquires North American Rights to ‘ARMA II: Operation Arrowhead’ for PC New Stand-Alone Release Hits Shelves June 29 Meridian4 today announced it has secured the North American retail publishing rights to Bohemia Interactive’s new stand-alone, expansion pack, ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead. Additionally, Meridian4 is also planning on introducing ARMA II Combined Operations, a special edition bundle that consists of the original award winning ArmA II game and Operation Arrowhead. Both offerings are schedule to hit retailers across North America on June 29. “We are excited to partner with Bohemia Interactive to bring these two outstanding offerings to gamers,†said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director, of Meridian4. “With new playable content and new simulation features, ArmA II : Operation Arrowhead is a robust PC game that does not require the original ArmA II, yet is fully backwards compatible, so owners of the first game can enjoy the new features and a whole new experience.†The action resumes in ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead three years after the conflict in Chernarus, portrayed in the original Arma II. A new flashpoint in the Green Sea region heats up and coalition forces led by the US Army are sent to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties. In ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead’s all-new single-player and multiplayer campaigns, players will experience new large-scale maps, and new simulation features that include new radio chatter and languages, controllable Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, thermal imaging, decoy flares and smoke screen cover. Additionally, owners of the original Arma II will now be able to utilize Operation Arrowhead’s new weaponry, vehicles and factions in the multiplayer mode of Arma II, breathing new life into the battle.

    How is ARMA 2 doing lately?

    Campaign plays great now. There's no lag in the cities after 1.05. The urban area are completely drawn. With 1.05 patch, I've been able to increase view distance, and video settings. THANKS BI DEVS and COMMUNITY for all your work on this game! Can't wait for OA to come out!
  12. I too had this issue. 1. Closed out system tray items like ATI CAT, and Marvel Tray 2. Uninstalled ArmA 2 from C:\Program files directory 3. Reinstalled ArmA to C:\Program files (x86) directory 4. Ran same patch file without error.

    Selling Mods and Scripts for Profit

    I THANK GOD for BI's willingness to be open and allow such mods to be built at no charge. They are clearly the king of hill in military simulations now, and can control the free market as they like. The support of the mod community(Which I am not) is very impressive from my point of view. Thank you for a great product! I look forward to buying Arrowhead.
  15. I run it on a D.S. It works. But like stated above, sometimes theres action, sometimes not. Completely random, which can be double edge sword.
