Because of this "connecting failed" issue when joining servers, the constant loading of the menus is becoming troublesome.
How am I able to start up the game from a shortcut on the desktop to bring up the menu that has your Game version, Singleplayer, Multiplayer, Options, Player Profile, Expansions, Exit, without having to sit thru 32 seconds of:
Bohemia Interactive Presents
Operation Arma II Arrowhead
Arma2.com Copyright 2010
I mean, my operation system loads faster than 36 seconds?! Come one, we bought the game, the Czechs should know we're not going to realistically load up their game once and never restart, patch, or boot up the game other than leaving it one for 365 days a year and hoping form server to server, right?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm suprised this issue is not stickied in the forums.
