    How hard is it to get the Steam version modded... one reason why I hesitate on these sales.

      It can't be any more difficult to set up than the boxed version YT. It ain't easy.

      That said, I am signed up for this event. Come on PR dudes!

        i have both A2 and OA with steam, using yoma to get the mods and then this nifty launcher then Blackpython gave me it's really damn easy to use.

        If i can get it to work with steam then there's no reason other's can't and given the fact it's currently dirt cheap totally go for it! and the TG arma community are extremely helpful (i can't stress how much so) in getting people set up to play and helping through problems.

          tbh steam seems like the easier and better way to go.

            Yeah, i just went through the setup and it seems that the steam version requires less steps. The only things that took some time were the updates (about 2GB of them) - but at this point it all depends on your connection speed. The setup steps that required my input took less than 10 minutes :) It's not hard at all. Dredge did a great job laying out all steps in the exact order!

              Its just as easy if not easier to setup the steam version of arma2 and OA. as i have both a steam copy and physical copy.

              Its the exact same process

                      Im not sure SSD is a requirement. I have noticed ARMA using alot of memory for me recently since it was patched. I upgraded to 6gb and I did not expect Arma to use it but I put all my settings to max and it does register around 5gb at times now so lucky I got more memory or my very old IDE drive would lag it a fair bit

                      Otherwise my gfx is 4870 and Im surprised how well it copes though my resolution is small by modern standards at 1280x1024

                      Here is a quick list I drew up of all the weapons available, not all missions just throw this at you but its there in domination mode I think and selectively elsewhere



                      Google or youtube the model numbers shown - all the game models have excellent detailing on them :)

                      Eg. this is the M32 :



                      If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

                        The SSD is nessicary when I don't have more than 2 gb ram and have less than 7 free GB of memory :D

                        SSD is to get things to just boot quicker ;D

                          SSD is to arma what an aimpoint is to an M4. Works either way, but way better with the SSD. Arma uses the hard drive alot for map loading. Maps are loaded as you move around and no preloaded when you join due to the size. So, having an SSD makes it faster and smoother when running around.
