Ye, it ain't just a Nvidia problem. I have an ATi card and getting this bug since ArmA2 is out. Even some of my friends have this bug and they have diffrent graphic cards, cpu's, ram and so on.
I would be very happy to hear a little sentence like: "We're on it."
It's not fair to leave us in the darkness and let us reinstall the game, os, drivers etc. w/o any diffrence.
THIS CAN'T BE!
I thing i solve this bug i just put my video memory to normal work for me just tested 2h on longesday servers but work
mem : 4g OCZ raper
gpu : hd3870x2
mobo : asus p5q deluxe
os : WinXp pro sp3
what its strange whit high video memory i dont lose any fps so i wanna play on hi settings hope future patche will fix this
I have 5 friends in a clan. One guy has two new machines (he built for his kids) and both have ATI 4870 1GB in them. Both get the receiving error time and again.
I myself have had this issue in single and multiplayer but almost always in multiplayer.
I have almost decided to forget about ARMA2 it is that frustrating. My friend was going to buy it but after seeing what happens on his rigs he said no way, waste of money.
I really want to love ARMA2 but in its current form for me and many others and no word on any fix for this I may just be left with writing it off.

I am beginning to wonder if you started this thread to Troll it...
It absolutely CAN Take a long time to find a memory leak depending on what you're working with.
Have you personally ever debuged a program much less a Graphics Engine?
Sure. It CAN. But it WILL take forever if you never start.
I could also skip pulling down pants before toilet because it CAN be to late.
But if I give up before, I will always shizz into my pants
What I am missing here (or it is unknown due to the poor PR-work) is statistical analysis e.g. commons and differences between the rigs of all reporting this issue, starting to exclude causes e.t.c. I have not seen any REAL SYSTEMATIC way collecting data. The laughable polls in the forums regarding happiness do not say anything.
And until know, I do not know EXACTLY in which cases the ArmA2 application is rising the "Receiving" screen. It is for sure not meant to show an error, rather a placeholder whenever visual data are delayed.
But giving us more insight here could help us by helping then to help us what did I wanted to say

No offense dude, but do you have any competence in programming software?
He`s not saying it`s hard to REPRODUCE that bug (what you meant) but it`s hard to find the piece of code or state of the whole program that`s causing it.
Anyway, BI`s information strategy could be better.
I hear you. And I meant indeed REPRODUCING, because that is usually the half way of fixing it.
But I refuse to accept that SW devs claiming they do anything special. If you know your business, you can perform as in any other area.
And we paid BIS the money trusting they KNOW what they are doing.
it's being worked on ....
oh btw there is systematic data collecting as we are receiving reports via MS WER (Windows Error Reporting) for years ...
it was mentioned more than just multiple times since 2001

Oh-ohhhhhhh Big B is watching me. all my smurf and porn downloads are reported too
Wai..Wait a minute, I turned off WER and uploaded .rpt and dot-whatever as been told, not used?
Btw, I use since yesterday 186.24 and I got 5h WITHOUT Rec-Bug, but I had this also with 190.?? and next day it returned, I hesitate to shout "hurray" now. I will try to get into a crCTI until weekend and report if it solves (for me) this issue.
BUT STILL: why can't BIS more open in telling what exactly triggers that sceen? Current info-level is still: "something went seriously wrong....."
Wow - we all thought this is normal.
