  • 1.09 Beta released

    http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA_Beta_Patch_1.09

    VOIP probably needs more testing, so if you can give any useful feedback about it, please do.

    There are a ton of great changes in this version. The changelog doesn't even cover them all. :)

      Wow this is great news. It is really nice to see them putting so much effort into an "old" game. I hope this spurs some activity on the server soon.

      One question, do both the client and server need matching versions? If I update to this and the server is still 1.08 are there conflicts?

        1.08 and 1.09 are not compatible in any way. Both client and server must run 1.09.

          However, if I understand correctly after installing the beta patch you can still start and play the regular 1.08 .exe and there is an uninstall .exe for the beta. So seems that installing the beta patch doesn't permanently cut you of from 1.08 servers.

            With a bunch of people the VOIP seems to be working decently. As far as performance, there was a tremendous boost for me in FPS. I also like how the movement seems to be a bit smoother.

            Overall it seems to be running smooth and the server is stable with it.

                Yes. 1.09 seems quite stable and you can still run 1.08 as well.

                  Installing.

                  *edit, installed. I can see a small performance boost. I've already forgotten how to play, been over 3 months since my last go around.

                    after the update, the game felt really smooth and now that i have my 8800 GT on the way, it will feel even better. It does seem like they toned down the grass, is that why it seemed much smoother? Usually when i went to scope, my frames just crapped out but after the update i was picking off ei with deadly accuracy.

                      I got some issues about the server, how come we dont have the password on it?

                      Last day i me and abysmal started a mission and all of a sudden two mer joins and one of them used hacks, because everything he shot at exploded even thou he had a M4 SD.
                      I kicked him from the server but there are some guys who comes on and don't follow orders.
                      I think some members knows what I'm talking about.

                      Otherwise the patch is a great advance, the voip problem has already been talked about.
                      Most of the annoying earlier bugs are gone and the game runs more smooth now.

                        I'm curious, myself, as to why the server is no longer password protected...

                        One of the reasons I like playing on TG servers is because you don't have to put up with hackers here.

                          Per BigC's announcement here: Server Schedule

                          The schedule will be updated to maximize player usage, contingent on traffic.
                          As part of that, we are running the server without a PW on certain days to try to increase traffic and attract new players to TG. This is coupled with TG dedicated days as well as an SM only day. As BigC said, we will adjust the schedule to find the right balance.

                          We have drawn a lot of interest this weekend by running the 1.09 patch, players have seen this and joined to try it out. No PW days will bring people who have never played the TG way before and have to be brought up to speed. We are working on ways of doing this effectively. And of course it may bring out hackers/cheaters as well. We are trying to address this as well. Continue to report problematic players to admins via PM and provide feedback. If you think we are running too many days w/o a password let us know.

                            Is the 1.09 patch out or is it still the beta?

                            The hungry, ignorant man immediately grasps that he is handed a fish, but is bewildered when handed a net. The man who shivers in the cold thinks happily of the man who invites him to sit by his fire, and somewhat poorly of the man who loans him an axe, flint and steel.
