Well, it's the publishers job to support us, and I've asked them to answer the questions in the thread... they claim in their automated email response...

Hey look at all those other games on my HD.
I did get an email from the publisher today - but it was a blank one. Perhaps it was an accident. I'll keep you all posted.
W0lle, as you can see highlighted by others in this thread, the information on the wiki is incorrect/incomplete in a quite a few areas (specifically for Arma 2), and as I've highlighted, is completely missing the answers to many of the specific questions I've asked. If you can prompt a response from BI, that'd be very useful. I'm sure you read the forums, but the specific parameters & the specific options/command line arguments I have raised questions about seem to be the most popular 'solutions' suggested by people, when nobody actually knows what they do and & merely guessing, so it'd add a huge value to get this information.

Updated main thread with current communications with the publisher.
Thanks for all your trouble, I'm definitely following thing. You really shouldn't have to go through all this of course, especially since some of the people who can sort this out once and for all are reading the thread. Makes you wonder.

Sadly BI support seem relucant to assist us further - see my update in the main thread.
Lest you forget, Mr. Hunter, we are a ship of war, designed for battle.
You don't just fight battles when everything is hunky-dory.
What'd you think, son? I was just some crazy old coot putting everyone in harm's way as I yell "yee-haw"?

Regarding nonlocalVRAM=X parameter. Miloslav advised this is the autodetected 'available resources from main memory via AGP' I asked if he meant AGP aperture size and if this mattered to PCIe users - he did not provided an answer, again, I was merely trying to clarify his ambigious definition if the parameter.
Regarding '-winxp'. I asked Miloslave if this forces Win7/Vista to use Direct3D 9 vs Direct3D 9EX, he did not confirm this. He only stated it minimalised OS differences and helped multi-GPU users.
Regarding video memory, there are several settings.
- very high
They should be configered based on the amount of RAM your pesonal video card has, however, no guidance is offered on what setting is for what GFX RAM amount - there is no answer to this question.
