Looking good.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif thx. I think the first games gfx were awesome and very immersive when "tweaked" right, very underestimated.

That, the realistic map sizes, and the gameplay, made it my fav all time fps just edging out H&D2...

If this is better than the original, and it looks it, can't wait http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

At the highest settings, VERY. When the original OFP came out it was configurable for a view distance of 5km. 5 years later Far Cry touted it's 2.5km view distance. Nothing could handle OFP at the max settings when it came out and I'm sure ARMA will be similar although, the high-end today is is a comparitive order of magnitude better than the high-end of back then. As far as what's absolutely necessary for decent game play, I'm betting that my AGP Radeon x1600 will handle it for now.

The word on the street is that it's pretty easy to localize but I'm not going to risk it.

It's said one should never buy version 1.0 of anything. If they want to work out the initial bugs for us, who are we to complain?

This thread has re-kindled my interest in OFP... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I have the original not the GOTY edition. Jeeeez the patches!!!

Which one's lol.

I've also read that it's pretty hard on pc's at the highest settings ( just been visiting a few forums since this thread started) and also that it's quite buggy. Which hopefully means that by the time English version comes out a few broken bits will be fixed.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Anyone here have an idea about this FFUR mod??

I have d/loaded the Bas Tonal Island mod as it seems to be held in high regard.

Something to do while I'm waiting for 46.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There's already an unofficial translation download to make the Czech version totally English. The German version just came out (officially) yesterday, and a similar translation d/l should be available real soon. Most of the game is in English, or there is english options to some extent, but as I understand it the mission briefings are in the native release's language, so a group of fans have sorted out the translations and released a little patch to convert the whole thing to English, mission briefings, the lot!

Official Patch 1.01 is also out for both versions.

Amazon.de ship to the UK, if you can't wait 'til Feb 07 (mine is on the way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

Check out the ArmA forums regarding this translation mod, and patches: http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard311/ikon...;act=ST;f=64;t=54593 (http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard311/ikonboard.cgi?s=96ba31eca0bd4929bc9fa57e8d96e1d0;a ct=ST;f=64;t=54593)

It seems the original release is very buggy.
The first patch is already out to cope with some of the performance issues.

I buy my copy today after work and will check how smooth the game runs on my rig.

Gonna post a short review after getting a first impression.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

i got the gold/goty edition of the first game.
called oparation flashpoint
cold war crisis

and in the gold edition theres the expansion packs: Red Hammer and Resistance.
when i got it i played it for some time but then my pc began to run checkdisk evrytime i started the computer and it got stuck underway with it so i removed the game and reinstalled pc in hope that was the cause and i havent had THAT problem since so i guess it overwrites so important windows files or something by a mistake.
anyway its a great game and i relly enjoy it and ... miss it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Ahh this is the new game from the makers of Op Flahspoint.

Didnt they lose the Op Flashpoint name to Codemasters and have to call this Armed Assualt?

As such Op flashpoint 2 from codemasters will be developed by a different team.

Op Flash was never about the graphics, it was about the gameplay, but those graphics still look damn sweet on Armed Assualt.

Thanks for posting!

Armed Assault is the one to watch. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is the reason I love PC games and hate console games, PC games have so much more depth and are so innovative. Op flash and games like this would never have been developed for consoles (Possibly converted afterwards but never developed for them)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

it's very unlikely that was the fault of OFP, just a "dirty" hard drive(bad sectors, cluster data etc). Should be cool to reinstall it if you have formatted the PC<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Well I got my German version from Amazon.de, on thursday last and installed and patched it to v1.01, then run the little language converter, which worked seamlessly.

Initial impression was, to be honest, slightly disappointing. It's one sluggish game engine, with some annoying mouse lag for some reason. It can at times look just like the old OFP, uncannily so, but then in other situations looks a lot more detailed. The play area is massive. Whilst my PC isn't the latest spec, it is one that can happily run IL2, Fear, BF2, GTR2, etc at a decent frame rate; but Armed Assault needs a fair bit of tweaking to find that sweet spot (if there is one!) and the AI in the game doesn't appear to have got any smarter since OFP, not the ones I came across. They are deadly shots though!

I had a couple of CTD's with it - always in the menu screens when in gets to a particular point in one of the videos run

I don't have it yet (there's no way my computer would run it adequately), but you can apparently tweak the AI a bit in ArmA. There's a settings file in your "My Documents/ArmA" folder with values such as "precisionFriendly" and "precisionEnemy". I don't know how much you can change, but it's apparently trivial to change the AI hit percentage if you find them to be as ridiculously accurate as in OpFlash. If OpFlash (especially the "upgrade" mods) had such a thing, it would have been VERY welcome. It got tiresome being sniped by a shotgunner from 300 yards.

OpFlash actually had quite a good helicopter flight model if you flew add-on helicopters with a joystick and throttle. The stock helicopters weren't horrible with a joystick, either. Trying to fly anything with the mouse and keyboard was pointless, however, and the A-10 flight model was awful all-around. Has anyone plugged up their joystick to ArmA to fly things around yet?

....I understand that you understand almost nothing in computer technology(regarding how to get all features working well in one great code and how to get it fully optimized for all aspects of the game and where developers must go for compromisses), because you are speaking bla-bla-bla about things that you don't know.
