Armed Assault should be Aval Tomorrow from http://www.sprocketidea.com/ sprocket games.
The retail box version, published by Atari, isn't going to be aval until May and I just can't wait that long.
The Czech version runs € 33.50 I think that's about $45 US. We'll see what the English version runs.

Should be pretty sweet.

Yea, its confusing.. I'll have to check the ArmA sites again on the differences.. (sites which I forget what they are :( )

But if I remember, there's like a whole bunch of different publishers for each geo.. Its a bit insane.

You know of a good site offhand for a US based community? Playing on an overseas server while being in the US would give bad pings and dropped packets...

I contacted Sprocket Games and here is there reply:
MaX:Hey I was wondering if your going to be putting out ArmA -English at some point today.

Sprocket
Thank you for your interest in AmrA: Armed Assault English Version. The game will be released shortly. If you go to www.Sprocketidea.com and on the right hand side under Lastest News is all of our updated information. Thank you once again.
This was a press release around 2/8.
English Online Direct Download Release
The full English version of ArmA will be available for purchase via the online games service Sprocket from 27th February worldwide.


Well shortly is not yesterday and it seems they have disabled their scrolling news on the side so you don't see the message about it coming. I'm betting it will come out on Fri along with the 1.05 patch agentkay talked about.

I've been loving the multiplayer demo, but it is even buggier than flashpoint was on release. Ill wait for a patch.

I have the demo as well, and find it to be prettywell bugfree for me. Runs amazing. Looks amazing. Sounds amazing, altho I think the weap sounds could be better. Nothing a mod won`t cure.

I heard the new patch has fixed aiming somewhat as well. Supposed to feel more realistic. Can`t wait for the May N. American release. I play FPs campaigne thru 3 times. And so far the demo craps all over FP in all the right ways. But this game ain`t for everyone.

Did we play the same demo? It was the single most horrible running PC game I've ever played and I mean that 100%.

:D I started the download and walked out the door to go to work. On my way to the car I slipped on some ice and took a small dive. Got in the car, put the key in, sat there for a sec. Forget this it's fetching snowing, it's cold and it's icy. The fall gave me the perfect Idea for playing hooky. I'm staying home, ganna make it an ArmA day.:afro: Now...only 2 more hours till it's done DLing. 2.8GB

There's not really any other game like it released recently. Thats why.

I'm looking forward to this game too.. Although I wonder it might be a bit too "realistic" to play unless you actually organize a game.

I´m not too impressed with the patch because performance is worse now than it used to be with 1.02.

My Arma ingame settings: All settings on VeryHigh, except AA is set to "Normal", and viewdistance is set to 3000 (at 1280x1024).

Windows XP2 (reinstalled DX from the Arma CD NOT the Feb2007 version)
.NET (1.1 or 2.0) is NOT installed
Windows Pagefile is set to a fixed size (2GB) on another Raptor HDD than the actual game.

I'm having a great time with the game so far. I haven't beaten a single mission. It's freakin hard but I’m having a good time trying. Performance isn't that great but neither is my processor.1280x960 4000 view distance, Max settings, Low AA and it's between 20-30 but I do get dips in to the low teens.

How is the performance now? Is it any better than with previous patches?

Performance is around 15-20% worse than 1.02. :( However, gameplay and AI is actually a lot better now. Friendly AI finally return fire and don´t act totally moronic. They zeroed the sights and it´s much easier to kill the enemy. The bugs in most single player missions and the campaign are gone. Overall an average patch, the performance got worse but gameplay was improved.
