    Multiplayer not in playable state

    I just found out about the Domination stress testing yesterday, advertised on my community forums for more players, now find the server gone. Some information on what is happening might improve participation.
  2. My prospective of how I view certain things in game. Some may agree a fix is needed and some may not. 1. The brakes on the vehicles sound like someone ripping the transmissions out. Although I’ve noticed some improvement from the first release it is still very annoying and needs more work. 2. Snakes. I’ve been on some of those Greek Islands and although I’m sure there are snakes I never seen any. In game they are just everywhere…sometimes you can see 3 or 4 from standing in one spot. Decrease these by 80% 3. The mechanics of the helos I find easier to use than those in Arma 2. However when trying to decrease altitude you can hold the z key down forever to get it to drop. When you decrease the throttle you should get immediate significant decrease in altitude. 4. The boats forward movement is fine but you can’t stop them and reverse is next to non-existent.
  3. I was kicked with the subject error message yesterday and once again just now. Other than that it has been smooth sailing!
  4. Update communications to include Smartphone’s http://www.military.com/daily-news/2013/03/27/army-set-to-introduce-smartphones-into-combat.html?ESRC=eb.nl
  5. Same here with 89606...went back to 89223...that works fine.
  6. Had the same issue. After I installed Beta patch 87662 http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=129429&highlight=87662 and unchecked the overlay in the Teamspeak plugins I have not had any further problems.
  7. Have to say I wasn’t very happy with all the crashes I was getting with 1.60 but with 87662 beta patch the game is running smooth even with my old 9800 Nvidia. Your aftermarket support to consumers is phenomenal.

    Not exactly on subject but related and may interest thread readers http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/archive/2011/December/Pages/GamingTechnologyPutsSoldiers%E2%80%99BootsonGround.aspx
  10. I got that error too...starting with 1.60 RC2. Think I've found that the overlay that now comes with teamspeak is the culprit. I turned it off and no more crashes. You can help confirm by posting if you have been using the Overlay.
  11. My Steam OA would not work yesterday and verify said 1 file failed to validate and would be reacquired. This didn’t happen. This afternoon I tried again and apparently after the BAF hotfix everything works perfectly. Thanks again BIS
  12. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and thank you BIS!
  13. I agree manual updating steam isn’t a good idea. And my community is stuck on RC2 and will not update again until final so I can’t check my issue with newer RC’s. And as the error left me with only keyboard and took away my mouse I didn’t do any checking for dump files. But as this only started with RC2 thought I should post something about it. Thanks everyone.
  14. Since 1.60 RC2 installed continue having “ArmA 2 Reinforcements stopped working†errors. My ArmA 2 and OA are both Steam versions and I manually applied the 1.60 RC2 patch. Some other steam users are also apparently having the same issue while others are not. I don’t see any current posts about this problem. Old posts with this error were fixed by removing dsound.dll file, however my computer doesn’t have that file.
  15. For realistic content improvement suggest reviewing this article “10 Tech Items for the Next War†http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/Pages/default.aspx
