After playing for 4 days with the german version of ArmA and patching it to version 1.01 I am really very disappointed what has been released to our community.
There are tons of bugs or shortcomings. It would be too time consuming to list them all.
The most obvious are:
- very bad performance even on normal settings
- very often no sounds, with Hardware Accelaration or EAX
- missions sometimes don't end
- level of detail of the units and vehicles are not sufficient
(the most of unofficial addons in OFP are a lot better)
It is obvious that Armed Assault has been designed with game consoles in mind. The control menus are showing it big time. Really disappointing.
Let's see how the community will react when the 505 games edition is out in Febraury 2007. I on my part predict that the community will be really disappointed. This could be the end of a very good relationship between BIS and the OFP community.
Sorry to say that. I was a big fan of BIS for the last 5,5 years. But the release of ArmA at its current state is an offense to us.
