1: Have they fixed the AI seeng through vegetation when you are prone.

2: Thank god for the convoy AI. I had so many problems in ArmA 2 and the expansion with trying to manage a convoy. I had to order them to get to the point I wanted to get to manually and hope tha they would get there without flipping.

3: What do they mean by "Tweaked speed of transition animations". Vehicle boarding or weapon switching... or both. I don't remember how many times i got kiled because my character was switching from sidearm/AT to rifle and i couldn't move.

PS: I'm not whining. I love the game, especially online coop (missions, Domination or insurgency). But there are some things that relly get on my nerves and break the immersion.

hope the A.I fixes are true..been having issues every now and then with my squad. half of the time they don't follow a simple movement order and just run around :?

Vegetation rendering, excellent, as it still hurts framerates. A.i. is also welcomed, however the A.i. mods have been very beneficial.

Great stuff, thanks. Is there a way to be able to keep your old saved games when updating?

Too bad I can't run this game properly ... I really want to play this over Dragon Rising.

I just picked this up due to all the praising comments Ive seen here and around this forum. Currently installing, looking forward to it. :D

umm is the C button to stand in this broken?

^^ If this is your first time with ARMA2 then dont get frusterated, sometimes takes a few weeks to get use to all the controls and everything.

If you got the retail then study the manual with the controls. Its pretty much every key on the keyboard that is used in this game.

Once you get a hang of things though its fantastic.

yes this is my first round at playing the game. Ive read the infantry controls and patched up to 1.09.. z for prone, x for kneel and c for stand. z and x both work but it appears I can never get back to the full standing position. I was just wondering if its the game or me :)

My stand up key is the same and it works, maybe there's muck under the keypad?:P I've had this game for a couple of weeks now and the controls are still strange and even though my PC is well above the recommended requirements it still lags if I have the settings too high.

I remember my idiot helicopter pilot couldn't fly for nuts when trying to pick my sqaud and I up. He flew right into a telephone pole :\.

Haven't played the game for a while, might get back into it again, so I hope they fixed those sort of A.I problems.

Ive tried 2 keyboards so far, same result :( Im only playing around in bootcamp at the moment trying to get a feel for the controls. The heli's arent so bad, the VTOL is ok, but the damn stand key lol.. Oh well. I'll see if it plays up in story mode tomorrow.

Good news. Been playing this game recently, so this will come in handy.

#17 Posted by darksusperia (6911 posts) -
Ive narrowed it down to FRAPS causing my C button issues...
#18 Posted by darksusperia (6911 posts) -
anyway, got my issues sorted. was a combination of MSI afterburner and FRAPS trying to be a PITA. a quick uninstall/reinstall sorted that. But my god this game is CPU dependant. Aside from that, loving it!

I wanted to pick this up for some coop. Should I get Operation Arrowhead or the original?

Does the mouse control still suck?

What do you mean by sucking? You can customize the smoothing, deadzone and sensitivity of it so there's nothing that's ever been bad about it besides you not taking 1 minute to figure out how to customize it to your likings.

Need to upgrade your rig then bro
