    AMD processors and graphics cards issues.

    My Phenom X6 1055T with a 5870 runs it fine, as does my i7 920 and GTX560 combo. Well, I say runs it fine, it runs it as well as ArmA ever runs.

    Helicopter Transport tips

    One of the most crucial things is making sure that everyone in the chopper knows exactly when to get out, especially if you're doing something fancy like a momentary stop just over a rooftop, which is always fun.

    Aircraft Control - Poll

    An xbox 360 controller is a good alternative. Obviously isn't as authentic but it's also useful for ground vehicles and the analogue inputs in the form of the triggers are useful. I do wish that I had a joystick though.

    2560x1600 30" monitor players

    I'll always whack 3D resolution to the maximum I can set it to while still getting reasonably performance. Normally go with about 150%.

    ArmA2 Marmite?

    Marmite is good, but doesn't compare to the godlike nature of Bovril. I mean, it's sort of like Marmite, but meaty. How can it get better than that?

    ARMA2 and Kinect

    Zipper, I don't think anyone here is asking for motion controls in ArmA 2, rather using the PC version of Kinect as a cheaper, potentially better, alternative to TrackIR. Depending on how good the voice recognition software for Kinect turns out to be, it could also be widely used for voice commands.
  7. My laptop handles it fine. It is a Dell Studio 17 which cost about £700, outfitted with an i5 540m @ 2.53 GHz, 4GB of RAM and an HD 5650m. It consistently maintains a good 35-40 fps on medium-high graphics at 1600x900, which is the screen resolution. I would definitely recommend a cooler though, I'm using one of the new Zalman coolers with a single great big fan, and this has cut about eight degrees off my average load temperature for the graphics card, and has also cur a few degrees from the CPU temp.

    Death to cute little bunny rabbits

    Hell, I actively target wildlife, even when on foot. You can't be too careful, they could have explosives strapped to them (and quite often do, if I make the mission).

    Dutch Minister may ban remains in extremely violent games

    Right, I am pretty sure that any normal child over the age of, being conservative, eight understands that indiscriminate killing is wrong. Certainly this is the case by the age of ten or eleven. Sure, there are certainly some with psychopathic tendencies who wouldn't see random killings as being wrong, but those are mercifully few and far between. I'm not saying that younglings should be playing games like ArmA (least violent 18-rated game I've played by the way) or worse things like Gears of War, but I don't think that even at that age there is any significant chance of turning normal children into psychopaths through playing even the most violent of games.

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    I would imagine so, in any case it isn't a problem, just a wee little curio. :D

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    Ah right, thanks for clearing that up for me :) To be clear, I wasn't expecting it to appear anywhere else, I was enormously surprised when it showed up.

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    Really, hm, I missed that. So I take it that the sprocket version of ArmA 2 doesn't activate on Impulse as well, only the DLC? Shame, would also have been nice if the retail versions could be activated on Impulse or Sprocket, as having a downloadable backup is always good. Ah well. (I have retail)

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    Erm, something odd, though awesome, seems to have occurred with my DLC. I bought BAF from Sprocket and have been merrily playing it. Today I felt like it was time to play a wee bit of Elemental so I started up Impulse to see the BAF DLC listed under by games as available, though I can't download it as I don't have Operation Arrowhead on Impulse. Is this normal? And more to the point - does this happen with all sprocket downloads?

    Head Bob...how many use?

    I have it off, I did try it on 100% for a little while and it actually made me vomit (thankfully there was an empty glass nearby which I managed to contain it in. I don't recommend whacking it up.

    Operation Sandtiger (OA)

    An easier way of allowing the selection of weapons is to put them in the description.ext, then choose the gear option in the units tab of the briefing. If I remember correctly I added that functionality in that version I sent you ;)
