  • Pleased so far..... :)

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to report my experience so far. Download and install was really easy...I had to download the files at my in-laws house due to the power outage in our area from a big winter storm last week...burned both files onto a DVD and installed ArmA on my system this evening. Started it up and off I went...whoops..forgot to install the German to English translation patch...I knew enough German from watching German Bundesliga soccer matches to mess around with it a bit..but decided to quit and install the patch...translation patch was flawless..All English now.

    So far the game is awesome...very good looking and runs well on my system so far...: AMD Opteron 144 @stock speeds, 1024 ram, a geforce 6800gs video card and onboard sound on my ASUS A8N5X motherboard...

    Running the game at 1152x864 with some AF and minimal AA...shadows on low...forgot what else right now..

    I haven't had any big fire fights yet so I'm not sure how performance will be over all but so far I'm very pleased!!!!

    I think this is going to be a very big thing at TG!!!

    hehe , same here m8. Took me 28 minutes to download the 2 files. Installation was very smooth , same with the German to English patch ;D

    This game is soo...... amazing ! Playing the game at 1280x1024 , except for the shadows that i have on low , the rest is on high.

    I was crowling in the forrest when my nose bumpt in too some pretty amazing purple flowers , kindof like RL flowers lol.
    I did some training with the blackhawk tn8 , that chopper is very cool to fly with and has very nice details. The world you play in is HUGE ,and i mean realy huge ;D

    I think this game has all wath TG 'rs are looking for , there are like a 100 ways how you can go to your mission , how you will approach that bridge , what kind of insertion transport you gonna use with your team , how your gonna get your team out , where you gonna have your RV's , etc etc .......

    I gonna try make a little movie tomorow and will take some screens ;-)

    Now , i need my bed , its past 3 in the morning here ;D

      Can you provide a link to the German -> English patch that you used?

      I'm getting the server set up now. The main ArmA files are downloading, but I want to be sure to use a verified German->English patch once I get the thing installed.

      I've seen references to a couple, but if you have one that you know works, that will be the one I use!

              There are a bunch of manual patching steps at the bottom. Do you need to go through this whole process or just run the patch download after installation?

                I guess I could have read it in more detail. Seems the patcher does all that work for you now.

                    Chappie, how are FPS on your system? I have an Intel 28 w/HT, 2048MB DDR, ATI x850 XT Platinum and I'm trying to discern how many 'pretties' I'll be able to have activated while playing.
