  • Patch 1.04 Problems........

    Well....personally I feel patch 1.04 is less stable than patch 1.03.

    Even the last Beta patch we were running before 1.04 seemed more stable, but in the last couple of nights games I have seen more CTD's than I have seen for a long time. also squad XML's seem to have a tendancy to disappear on vehicles mid round.....

    Not impressed I have to say, and VON is far from fixed.....

    Back to the Beta patches again?

    Re: Patch 1.04 Problems........

    This is no accusation, just a guess, but is there any possibility that the gadget in your mission last night might have been causing the CTDs? It's pretty farfetched, but it was a bit weird that I crashed twice on that mission (as other people did) when I had never done so before, and didn't crash again until I signed off. How was it created? I noticed the amount of spinning coronas seemed to climb from two at the beginning to six or seven when I was at the dam, so this made me wonder if there might be a scripting bug. I take it that was just LOD though, and at any rate I suppose the game shouldn't crash because of something like that.

    I haven't had many stability issues in terms of CTDs in 1.04, but the annoying brown/black or white/black flashing during "Receiving" got worse, and when exiting the game after a long session it will stop responding and I have to kill the process. VON fading seems to work better now, but it's still incredibly choppy at times; this was especially noticeable with Frank's voice in the F16TAC Recon mission last night. Also, a lot of times the fill-in behind VON speakers' names will appear with no text on them, I have this on several screenshots I took of that mission.

      I haven't had a single problem. Just the standard Alt-Tab crashes and VON bandwidth issue with lots of players on the server. Maybe reinstall and reupdate?

        CCtoid.... no I have run that mission off my PC with no problems at all... The actual effect of the Scalar has been around in ArmA for quite a while and I think even goes back to OFP days...it's a pretty simple particle effect, so should not cause huge problems....However...I suspect the JiP issues may be the bigger problem...

        When we have JiP on any mission I have noticed more people crashing...

        I do however suspect that MP missions over 1.3MB in size may cause some people issues and I am not sure what that is?

        Spyder....its not a problem per say with my machine as I have not been crashing but I have seen my Squad XML disappearing... so I dont think I need a reinstall just yet...

          As far as I can tell 1.04 is simply a stabilized universal patch designed to catch up those not running the betas. e.g., there should be no discernible performance change between the two.

            I picked a bad time to switch video cards. I would say I have more CTD's, but I just upgraded vid cards so, I haven't been able to isolate the game or something with the card yet.

            I'm thinking along the lines of Scope, that this patch created a common point for the Beta's.

              I have had 2 crashes with the 1.04 and both were bad enough that i had to restart my computer. I have not had another one in about a week but I haven't been playing as much.

                No problems at all here, 1.04 runs stable as usual.

                  2 crashes so far... Yet I think I must point out my vid card for that, as I think it is overheating a bit and then I get a graphic driver stopped warning. Usually the screen freeze and then goes to black... From there no 3 D or 2 D available... Only the mouse pointer seem available but the game is still running fine considering I still have the sound.
                  I currently live in a world where it's survival of the weakest. Sigh...

                    The only bugs encountered so far are;
                    a) Receiving bug (quite often)
                    b) Weird texture (once)

                      I have gotten a few bugs myself, fortunatly not from hookers either.

                      I have had a few crashes that completely locked up the CP.
                      I have also noticed strange textures that seem to be outlined in white trails that follow along the border occasionaly. I know its not my gpu because it hasnt happend with other arma 2 versions.
                      I think this version has some issues for sure.

                        The bugginess is so annoying... It's like FSX.

                        Well I'll go install 1.04 :P

                          I'll +1 this, since 1.04 I've been crashing several times a day. Not impressed.

                          And although the VON is still kinda buggy and choppy, its leagues ahead of where it used to be. Remember Arma 1 where it just randomly cut out half way through a mission, and never returned? I'm happy where it's at right now

                            1.04.

                            Less CTD's for me, however grey texture corruption thingy has gone way up.

                              I never really crashed with the Beta versions, but with 1.04 I am crashing WAY more than I would like. I crashed like 3-4 times the other night on an EPIC Unicorn mish. Pissed off, then went to sleep!
