        I haven't installed any of the beta patches since installing 1.04. Is this something we'll continue to do or wait for official releases?

          The beta patches are completely your choice right now as they don't require the server to have it. Until there is a beta patch which the server runs, you're free to do whatever you wish unless the beta patch doesn't work with multiplayer. If this is the case I'll post here about it.

            Re: Beta patches since 1.04

            I am having problems installing the new beta patch.
            It keeps telling me that my game is not up to date with version 1.04. It says that I am running v 1.03 which im not and thus will not let me apply the the beta patch.
            Any suggestions?

              Remove the previous beta-patch by deleting the beta-folder

                    That can't be the only changes... I've posted atleast 10 bugs on their bug tracker in the last few weeks.

                          You are the man Fincuan, thanks for the news.

                          Performance and throttle fixes, it seems that arma2 is entering gold phase :p

                          EDIT: Is it multi-player compatible?

                            All the beta-patches are unless otherwise stated. You will of course be at a slight disadvantage compared to the non-beta users thanks to the grass-layers, but I think it's a small price to pay for finally having a grass "effect" also outside the 50 meter radius :)

                              What?!? ArmA2 didn't have that? We had it in ArmA1, why did they took it off?

                              By the way, does the grass layer affect the AI now, or it doesn't like A1?
