  1. * Get the latest beta patch, download and install it * rename the arma2oa in your ..../Arma2/Expansion/beta directory to arma2 (this is the application .exe to launch the game), * find the ""launch Arma2OA Beta patch" shortcut in Your Arma2 directory, right click it and send it to your desktop * right click the shortcut on Your desktop, click properties (may give an error opening properties as the .exe target has already changed), then edit the target line from arma2oa.exe to arma2.exe to suit the change You already made
  2. Guys, mods at CM forums have already started banning anyone who mentions the last game or even questions their motives on their forums http://community.codemasters.com/forum/6340400-post119.html Its gonna be one big circle-jerk fest
  3. I'm running the beta patch, therefore i rename the arma2oa.exe in the .../Expansion/beta folder to arma2 and change the target line in the "launch Arma2OA Beta patch" shortcut in the Arma2 directory and send that to the desktop
  4. Did a fresh install of Windows 7 with latest Ati Catalyst 1.07 today and installed the game. The scenario benchmark 8 gave me 35fps average. I then uninstalled the driver, ran driver sweeper in safe mode, installed 10.04 and re-ran the benchmark and got 47. Crossfire has been seriously broken in every driver since 10.04. On top of that, I gotta rename the Arma2OA.exe to Arma2.exe to get crossfire to work at all. My next gpu will be nvidia, I'm sick of these shite drivers, Ati may winning the gpu performance battle but they are alot behind on the software side

    Operation Arrowhead questions

    The improvements and optimisations A2 got in 1.07 aren't in OA yet, but they are available in the latest beta patch. http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php
  7. We also have reverted to the vanilla game because of the drop in randomers which keep our server ticking over. The answer is that We need an official patch ASAP, with all the fixes and cpu and memory optimisations that have been added so far.
  8. See, along with running the beta .exe, You need to be running the beta folder as a mod with the "-mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion" parameter which the 'Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch' shortcut found in Your Arma2 directory has already in its parameters

    Game worth Getting for MP?

    The key to the MP game is to find a good crew to play coops with and get on voicechat

    That shits too complex for me. Anyone care to make a Combined Ops version? Takistan is fine but without A-10's and Harriers and other good toys as rewards its quite poor.

    Get rid of McAfee, its as bad as any virus and will constantly annoy You. Get a better AV and give Your pc a new lease of life. McAfee is a hog

    Thank You kindly Tanky
  15. Sorry for the thread hijack, but in OA the javelin has changed (to similar to ace one), how do You change the Javelin from direct to top down? I've tried a few keys but cant find it

    Xeno, I'd like to edit the mission to our liking, I'd like to change the toys awarded for clearing the main mission to better ones, or even just remove the crap ones. I'd like us to be getting more A-10's, Cobra's etc, removing the Hummvees and other crap awards. Where do I start?

    What to upgrade to have better FPS?

    You shouldn't need to, 3.9Ghz is fine, you've plenty of ram, 512MB is just ok, but should be fine, this game is more cpu intensive. Make sure You're running the latest beta patch for Arrowhead, the beta's introduce the large address tweaks and multi-core optimisations Arma 2 got in 1.07, these aren't in OA vanilla 1.52.7181. If You're running combined operations You'll be running Arma2 in Arrowhead http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=103034 My pc is v similar to Yours and I've no real problems running at 1920x1200 in OA, 3200 viewdistance. Try the following settings: 3d resolution to 100% Af & Shadows - v high Tex detail, vid memory, terrain & objects - High Postprocessing - low AA - disabled Arrowhead doesn't have a crossfire profile yet, therefore You gotta rename the beta arma2oa.exe (one in expansion/beta folder) to arma2 to get the game to use of both gpu's. You'll see a "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch" shortcut in the main directory, copy it to Your desktop and then right click it, click properties and edit the target line to ".......ArmA 2\Expansion\beta\arma2.exe" -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -nosplash -world=empty" to suit the renamed beta .exe in the beta folder If this runs ok You can turn up pp & aa to Your own preference, I prefer them this way. BTW, defragging Your game directory is v important also

    Yes, I'm using an SSD just for Arma2 & OA, specs in sig
  19. PogMoThoin

    Can barly run OA.

    Try the latest beta patch: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=103034 The large address tweaks and multi-core optimisations Arma 2 got in 1.07 aren't in OA vanilla 1.52.71816
  20. Do it again, OA contained patches for Arma2 and would completely fragment the game directory

    Devs time for a 64BIT version???

    The large address tweaks and multi-core optimisations Arma 2 got in 1.07 aren't in vanilla 1.52.71816, try the latest beta patch
  22. Did You defrag the directory?
  23. Back to renaming it to Arma2.exe then so :mad:
  24. We stopped using the beta OA build for our server as people who weren't running the beta client saw a red question mark under version and thought they couldn't join, went back to vanilla 1.52 and we get randomers again. Need patch asap
