My System Specs

Default Operation Arrowhead at Walmart.

I looked for this game for months as I didn't want to download it. E B Games and Future Shop do not even have it in thier system nor do they expect to have it.On a lark,my wife decided to check Walmart and sure enough,it was there.I don't like to shop at Walmart but every now and then you can find a new game or old but still popular game that you can;t find anywhere else.Finally,a hard copy available. Check your nearest store. By the way,I loaded this game and maxed every video setting but the graphics horrible.I have ten year old shooters that look better than this.Oh well,there may be a good graphics mod out there.

Picked up ARMAII "combined operations" on steam not too long ago :) (used my notebook to download it away from home then copied it to my desktop)

I do not really have an issue with the graphics, looks just fine to me. Do you have a screen shot to show us what you mean?

It's O.K. now. I just 'thought' I had the graphics maxed. Got it figured out and it looks pretty decent. Thanks.

Get the newset patch if you can its great you get this Artillery computer that lets you launch ARTY and MLARS with simple map clicks.

TOo bad they stiffed us on the British unit DLC where the resolution is super crappy. BUt oh well there's modders that did a much better job for the british units anyways.

Still waiting on a proper CF add on.

The 10.8 ATI drivers are making this game look great with my rig. One thing for sure,This is not a run and gun game. It's the real deal. Huge learning curve but once you get into it,,WOW!.

By the way, TrackIR works with ARMA series.
