I bought a brand new computer just to play my only favorite game, ArmA of course. I made sure that I got a strong system to enable high settings and fluid gameplay.
Dell XPS 420
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo E6850, 3.0 GHz
3.00 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX (768 MB dedicated, 2000 MB+ shared, with latest drivers)
The game ran extremly well, allowing highest settings with 20+ groups and 4 helicopters in Corazol without a single sign of lag or bugs. Then it started all of a sudden and continues to happen constantly.
Black screen with small window saying - "Armed Assault has stopped working, Windows is searching for a solution, this may take several minutes..."
When getting back to desktop it says that ArmA is in conflict with another "CopyProtection" program - SecuROM. A link gets me to Securoms website and it clearly tells me that I'm running ArmA from an image and instead have to insert the original disc. This is when I start getting heat rash in my face from anger.
I have the original disc in my DVD drive all the time. It's bought in a store in Sweden, 505 games release, updated to 1.08 and Queens Gambit installed from Sprocket.
Can anyone help me to solve this annoying problem with a program - SecuROM - that is obviously poorly designed, since it even stops an original disc from functioning.
Appreciative for advices
