  • Guess Whos Back.

    So.. I got a new rig because the old one entirely fried out and I'm planning on buying ArmA2 soon.. Should I get just ArmA 2 or also the expansion? And is it better to buy off of steam or buy it in a box from a store?

    New rig I got at Fry's, hope I can manage above 20fps with this thing. Any old regulars still playin? And I saw the 'New players' thing in the announcements section, will do all that once I get the game, hope thats all up to date.?.

    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 945 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
    Memory: 8192MB RAM
    Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

    Also got a huge monitor compared to my last; Samsung LCD TV Monitor 23" 16:9 ratio, everything looks insanely different.. anyone got any suggestions with formatting games to widescreen stuff?

    Cheers, hope to be fraggin soon.

      Buy the actual DVD. Its actually cheaper than steam. I got mine for $34 shipped from gogamer dot com or something like that. Used a free ship coupon code. Just get ARMA2 for now, worry about the expansion later. We got new maps and missions, vehicles, fx etc from the mod community, don't exactly need to pay BIS for that unless you actually want to deal with super buggy single player campaigns. You will definitely love playing arma on a big samsung monitor. I have a 26" (upgraded from a 4:3 ratio 19") and it makes a world of difference for everything. As for setting up games for widescreen, just make sure you go into the options and set up for the correct resolution and aspect ratio. Some games require a FOV (field of view) tweak for them to look decent with a 16:9/16:10 monitor. Operation flashpoint 2 is like that. You run around and everything looks too zoomed in.

      edit: Also theres been some reports of patches, mods, updates not working correctly with the steam version.

                  Why elaborate on what he missed?

                  The more important is to focus on whats he's about to live by being back....

                      Thanks for the warm welcome,

                      went to target a hour or two ago, looked for ArmA2 but couldnt find it; got Napoleon TW instead.. (I've been a fan of the series since Rome and had the previous games too)

                      I still want to get ArmA 2 soon but have no idea where I could pick it up at.. anyone know of any retail stores that sell it?

                            Woohoo! Alright so went out to Best Buy today and got it (~35$ if anyones curious).. installed it and am currently downloading the 1.05 patch. Checked out the 'New ArmA2 players check here..." thread and got a few more questions now before I try playing it for the first time:

                            a) What coms are we using nowadays? Thread said TS was dead or something?

                            b) What other downloads should I do? Nothing was mentioned in the thread as far as ACE or sounds or effects or anything like that however I'm doubting ArmA2 was that solid of a release.

                            c) Anything different/changed much from ArmA1 to ArmA2? Any quick websites I should check out or anything like that?

                            d) How good is the pVp now? Box case says player limits 50, around what % of missions played are pvp or coop currently?

                            d) How long till my MH-6 skills come back, last time I played ArmA I remembered you could do some pretty fun flying in those.

                            Cant wait to get this all loaded up and back in game.. will probably be on tonight after patch is done and after I get done downloading anything extra I need.

                            Edit: Saw on Armaholic that theres a Ace 2 Mod, the download for it is called Yoma though and its like a 2kb thing. Wtf?

                              a) We are using TS3 as of now. All you need is to grab the IP: 74.52.1.234 and Port: 9987, set your nickname, and connect.
                              b) Check out the getting started thread as to how to setup yoma tools (the download client) http://www.tacticalgamer.com/armed-a...ml#post1486837
                              d(1)) Can't really say how good the TvT is since about 9000% of the games are coop as it seems this community hates TvT...
