    Re: First beta patch content revealed.

    nice

    very interested in this one:
    * improved rendering of perihperal vision simulation (dots on the screen edge simulating real world field of view)

    One of my pet peeves is the lack of awareness to each side. Wonder if this might improve that.

      Re: First beta patch content revealed.

      This was just posted in the official ARMA thread on the OFP forums:

      GameStar TV is covering ArmA 2 right now: http://www.gamestar.de/index.cfm?pid=10&pk=12297

      - it's a catastrophe, a Beta version at best
      - should have been tested at least another 6 months
      - many things simply aren't working
      - AI can't handle what it's supposed to do
      - air support not working; doesn't attack enemies
      - units don't work as a team; individuals are stupid
      - AI can see through (several) buildings and report units
      - assistance system doesn't work properly, orientation is bad
      - game is not realistic, not finished at all
      - patches may need more work than what has gone into the game
      - lack of animations
      - bad physics, damage system
      - full review next week after several more parts of the review diary
      There 's more negative reviews circling the internet and I wonder if some people are just overreacting because most of the TG players seemed positive about it. I can image people get mad when they see the same bugs as in ARMA 1...

      I 'm still gonna buy it though, I 'm sure the MOD will sort out most of the bugs.

        Sounds great, thats one of the real dangers with the bf2 engine.
        You can literally walk past an enemy because you are wearing blinkers in effect compared to real human vision

        Marek Spanel: We're going to release a patch on Friday for all customers, this will be the beta patch, since we are already testing a newer version which will be released during the next week.



        Marek Spanel: I believe we already went a long way since version 1.00 and that the upcoming patch 1 next week will improve the game heavily, especially the quality of the campaign. This version 1.01 is also what will be released in rest of the world. In late June we plan to release Patch 2, version 1.02 which should provide even more.

        If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

                Tobruk: I think 1.01(or a later version) will joint the German and international version together, so they use the same patches in the future.

                  Lol these guys evidently have no clue what a patch is for...there loss. Maybe this will weed out alot of the idiots like we saw in ArmA1.

                    ARMA 2 German Beta Patch 1.01 Released

                    Public beta of 1.01 is out now for the German version of ARMA 2! This is beta patch but we will ensure that final patch 1.01 (to be released early next week) will install smoothly over this beta patch. Please visit the Game Updates page to download the patch and read more information about it (in German language).
                    I'd post more, but their link to the Game Updates page is all in German :)

                    Also, here is the Patch Download Mirrors, also found on http://www.arma2.com
