I found the servers up before the anouncement!
As Marek has anounced:
There is now a dedicated server for 1.04 for the 505 players it is only for a week or so until the 1.05 server comes out then all the different versions will be sychronised but it shows just how good ArmA mp can be!
I had an excelent 3 hours on the Shark Server no crashes, no desynch, no lag just good solid gaming, smooth graphics, lots of shooting, big battles.
ArmA as it is supposed to be, lots more people playing. BIS seem to have sorted it.
If 1.05 is as much an advance as 1.04 ArmA is going to be the biggest game of the year.
Kind Regards Walker
