    Here's some thing to read about Arma 2. Just thought some people would like to know.

    http://translate.google.com/transla...games.tiscali.cz/news/news.asp?id=32629&r=top

    If some one could translate it better than google it be nice to have it posted :).

    Looks like i be getting the CZ version again. Last time people modded the game to english so i my self and a few others were playing it about 5-6 month before it was released in the UK\US..


    ArmA 2 in the Czech Republic will be released for PC on 17 June 2009.



    SWEEEET!!.

    Well with Arma shaders are impotent if you want higher view distances. So you should be pretty ok although you system would not max out arma 1 but you could get around 3-4k view distance with pretty high settings.

    Arma 2 has been yet more tweaked details have gone up. As long as you don't expect to max out the view distance you should be fairly good. In MP though View distance can suck so mods can be used to raise it unless they finally fixed that bug probably not though..

    I can hit around 4-5k good every were in arma 1 but thats with tweaking the settings..

    upgrading to the 940 would be a good idea, its not expensive and it clocks easely to 3.4ghz through the multiplier on stock voltage

    everything else in your system is great

    Hmm, looks like OPF: DR will allow for up to 4 online bots for a total of 128 players online. Interesting way of play online. I wonder if you will be able to actually have 128 players online...

    Edit: After reading the wiki it appears to be addition to 252 NPC squad members for a total of 284.

    Average Arma 1 game only has around 15 players. So really no need it any higher than 64 which it's at with arma 1.

    Look for your self
    http://stats.swec.se/server/list


    Well best way is to try it with what you have already... And if you can overclock a bit see if it improves performance of the game or not and if it don't i would not bother upgrading.. And personally would go for a v card with more shader power than CPU power.

    Although Arma is CPU intensive GPU counts a lot since the release of Arma.

    For a example my current system ( E8400 ) don't play the game any better than my older AMD 3800 x2 setup both having the 2900XT installed. Which gave me a view distance around 1.2k-2k max depending on area.

    How ever putting either 4870 or 4890 in the E8400 intel setup boosted the max view distance a lot.

    Thanks... I hope they get how the missions work right with OFP2 as one thing is bad in arma is that tournys are not possible without great trust in other teams. Which is some thing what made our team stand out.

    There fore i'm hoping it OFP2 gets it right as it could be the next GR of games....
