Hello everyone. First time for me here in this forum, I'm looking for some help.
I recently purchased ArmA Armed Assault (Version 1.05 Bohemia Interactive... 505 Games - think that means it's a European version of the game, though I purchased it in Australia). I can't get anything whatsoever out of the game...no screenshots, introductory cutscenes, game menus etc. You could look here for another of my attempts to get this game working - http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs....0590691
This is what happens...I load the game either by desktop icon, through the Start menu, or through autostart when reinserting the DVD. The mouse icon starts spinning a CD to inform me that it is reading the DVD, and then it stops with the dreaded Blue Screen Of Death.
I have tried to install the 1.08 patch, but it told me that one file failed to transfer properly. I have reinstalled the latest Direct x 9.0c driver, the latest driver for my video card, the latest AGEIA PhysX version 7.11.13, uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I then received a DIFFERENT BSOD stop code (First one was STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8574500A, 0xB9FB9288, 0x00000000). The second one was STOP: 0xC0000005, 0x8560C003, 0xB9D2628C, 0x00000000.
My PC specifications are:
Intel Pentium 4, 3.40GHz, 1GB RAM, NVidia GeForce 7300GS 256MB DDR2
Can anyone help me pinpoint my problem, assist me with new ideas to try, even solve it?
I have received good reviews of the game's predecessor Operation Flashpoint from a co-worker, who said it'd be worthwhile getting this game. I am begining to doubt him now. Any help would be appreciated.
