  • Ordered new rig, then didn't think about something with Arma2

    is anyone here running arma2 on a box with any sort of dual ATI cards using crossfirex? I have been a strictly nvidia user for 10+ years, but finally decided to swap to Dual 1GB ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4870 in CrossfireX (yes, copy and pasted) because it was such a deal for the new laptop.

    new rig is basically a completed supped up Alienware M17x (think click best one in all menus):
    Intel Core i7 920XM 2.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo Mode, 8MB Cache)
    8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz
    17-inch WideUXGA 1920 x 1200 RGB LED (1200p)
    Dual 1GB ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4870 in CrossfireX
    320GB Raid 0 (2x 160GB 7,200RPM HDDs)
    Genuine Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, English

    so...i've read it runs in winxp compatibility mode, some say it doesn't, and others say just pass arma2 -winxp flag.

    can anyone confirm?

    are you asking if arma needs to run in xp mode to work?

    if so, no arma will work on 7 just fine

      not with win7 specifically... but getting crossfire to work with it, e.g. dual video cards.

      i had to install a special patch to get arma2 to work with nvidia SLI too actually use both gpu's. I've heard there are simiiliar problems/tweaks i have to make to actually use both gpu's with crossfire?
