  1. Been trying to get to the BIS store for 2 days and all I get is a blank page with links to their game pages but no store. -X
  2. Simple - your laptops videocard is not capable of doing something your Titan is capable of doing, so it is not bogged down by this feature which is obviously enabled on the Titan. There is also some rocks on Chenarus in the North East corner next to a lake that slow the whole system down for some reason. They have always done that since day 1 of ArmA II. -X
  3. You might be right. I have the full version installed of PMC and BAF however. What is installed. All DLC is full versions: ArmA II ArmA II OA PMC BAF ACR TOH TOH: Hinds Would be fun to add my Carrier Command Islands too Something is telling me that I might be spending too much of my $$$ with one company here. :p
  4. Is there a manual way to get ACR working in TOH? I have PMC and BAF installed and both of those show up. -X
  5. I just purchased Take On Helicopters: Hinds (Vanilla, not Steam), and after installing with 1.05 Take on Helicopters and then adding Hinds, it works fine. Try to upgrade to 1.06, and I get the following messages on start up and then it bails to desktop: Followed by this before it bails: I've read the Steam thread. This is not the same thing that is happening to me. Any clues? -X ---------- Post added at 09:34 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:30 AM ---------- OK, I have traced the problem down to Rearmed. I removed Rearmed and now Take on Helicopters loads normally with patch 1.06. I'd like to use Rearmed as I own all of ArmA 2 and would like to fly in this area. Any additional ideas here? -X ---------- Post added at 09:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 AM ---------- Uggh. I may be solving my own problem. Posting my results as I dig so that maybe this can help someone else: Found this on the rearmed page: "No entry'config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadow" (on start-up) - try patching A2 & OA to the latest versions [2] http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Take_On_Helicopters_-_Rearmed -X ---------- Post added at 10:03 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:37 AM ---------- Final solution was to take A2 to 1.11 and A2:OE to 1.60 and then to 1.62. Now I no longer have errors. I hope this solution helps others. -X
  6. People still watch South Park? Got boring to me at least. Video was pretty cool. I remember how those graphics were once cutting edge. We were happy to simply have more than 4 colors and maybe a noise generator on top of the bleeps and blips! -X
  7. I quite using NVidia surround long ago due to its incompatibility with many games. Most work, but there are too many that don't. -X
  8. Shadows are not your friend. See this thread: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?133280-For-those-with-mouse-lag -X

    Manta out of fuel

    There is a thread already on this. Use the forum search to find it. I simply ran over a manta with my carrier and that works. I can't figure out how to use the hook on them though. -X
  10. Why would you want to? If you are not doing something constantly, the enemy carrier will begin eating your lunch because he doesn't pause. -X
  11. Didn't use the search feature. Just read all the titles looking for a solution and didn't see one, so I created it. Seems I missed it.
  12. I think I would go for an upgrade too. -X
  13. Can't answer #2 as I have the same question. To save a manta, though the hook should work, I can't find a way to may it work. If the manta is in the water, I found I could run over it with the carrier and I could save it that way.
  14. I found that lower shadow detail to be the biggest help. Lighting detail is the second best thing in helping relief mouse lag, though shadow detail is likely the best way to deal with it. Hope this helps. -X
  15. I got taken out today as I approached an island and it wouldn't let me stop the carrier. The enemy carrier turned around and started blasting me and I could do nothing to maneuver. It was outside of an immediate island and the option to set sail wouldn't even work. The enemy carrier just pulled up to my side and let me have it. -X
