ARMA II

Recommended Posts

Got the demo downloading right now. Hopefully it turns out to be pretty decent, since AA3 is having a real hard time doing any good at the moment.

Downloading Demo. I haven't been very psyched about this game so far. Hopefully I'll like this.

Looks like I need to redownload it :( Keep getting this error when I try to run: "the program can't start because X3DAudio1_6.dll is missing from your computer. try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Reinstalled it a couple of times but still get the error :(.

Same for me... not promising :lol: . At least EA's stuff installs correctly and crashes on the first launch. This one can't even install right. :rolleyes:

Redownloading the demo through Steam to see if this one works. What is it with people not being able to release a working game anymore? First Empire Total War, then AA3, and now Arma II. Argh.

:lol: The Steam version won't launch either. it doesn't give me the .dll error, it just gives me a crash report as soon as I click the .exe.

 

Oh well, I wasn't that psyched about it anyway. I figured I'd give it a chance.

Hey Lo, I found a fix for the demo..

 

http://www.gamingsa.com/forums/showthread.php?p=79351

 

Seems DirectX wasn't getting installed.

 

Edit: Wow, this game looks incredibly bad.

 

Buggy, no option to turn Vsync off (aka slow mouse movement; at least in Dead Space you could turn it off), and has so many things wrong with it. THAT'S JUST THE DEMO!

Good find. The DirectX update did the fix.

 

I don't consider myself an idiot, but this game seems overly... complex... or should I call it unrefined? So far I'm not impressed. I'll wait for an update.
