I just check E3 insider, trying to find new Arma 3 info, but isntead I found this:

http://www.e3insider...ng-range/28792/

Arma 2: Firing Range utilizes accurate high-poly weapon modes used in the award winning Arma 2 tactical shooter video game. Pick a weapon from dozens available. Several highly detailed firing ranges with different game modes wait for you to show off your skills. Compete with other players in online leaderboards. Arma 2: Firing Range is developed and published by Bohemia Interactive for Android.


:D

lol, nice find, maybe its duckhunt Arma style :)
And i see "DREAD" Achievements......... :(
My scripts:



Any new mission editor or scripter in Arma2 should have read Mr Murrays Editing Guide Deluxe at least once, it still applies for A2 even though it was made for Armed Assault.

Wow, this will be a must-have for my Android phone :) Nice one BIS!

And yes, "Achievements" is indeed a scary word at this end of the FPS spectrum...yikes. I would have been equally scared to read "Unlocks" or similar....hehe, but keep the evolution going :D

Heh, me too on the S2. I always wondered if they could put out an Android version of the editor, just a small-scale one

Firing Range trailer:



Old_Painless: you have the S2 already? are there any downsides at all? It seems like the most perfect phone so far (well, for people who can live without HW keyboards). send it as a PM probably, so we don't clutter up the thread.

official website says only "Android", but I suppose it'll work on most of the latest android versions, as long as your phone has the hardware to run it

The official website says that it will be available for iOS 4, Android, and Facebook.

The iOS 4 will only work on iPods and iPhones that support iOS 4 and is still to be announced. Facebook is also to be announced.

Android is the only confirmed platform, which says June, 2011.

Judging by the trailer, it is not for "Android". It is for Tegra. There are currently only two Tegra phones AFAIK, the LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Atrix 4G.

Why do I say this? Simple: Because Tegra games use Nvidia specific texture compression to prevent their use on Android phones without the Tegra chip. In other words, Tegra games does not conform to OpenGL ES standard specification across the Android platform.

Of course, they could include other texture compression formats if we're lucky. But I doubt it.

Sidenote: If it is Tegra, Samsung Galaxy S2 does NOT support the game (funny enough, Galaxy S2 is the ONLY recent phone to only support OpenGL ES standard specs, since it has a unique GPU)... Officially anyway. Members of XDA haxxored the 3D layer a while ago and has been running Tegra games ;)

Sorry to say this F2F_BHO, but in this matter Murklor is correct.

Will this work with any Android platform? They only have the Apple iOS4 listed on the website?

Nope, you need a tegra2 chipset. Your best bet is a Tablet - many tablets have the tegra2 chipset. i have tried on a samsung galaxy s & htc-wildfire/buzz and it doenst work. Unless you are a lucky owner of the few smartphones out there, playing arma @school on your phone is not yet within reach.

But besides phones and tablets, there is other hardware that runs on android.

If you're a Mini, Audi , BMW or Tesla owner for instance ( recent model) you might even be able to play ArmA Firing range, while in a traffic jam!

If there is anyone with a Car-pc able to run ArmAFR, send me some photo's and i'll refund the game!

Here is the supported devices list.

Tesla Motors Model S (Vehcile Info-ainment)
Audi MMI Touch (Vehcile Info-tainment)
BMW (Vehcile Info-tainment)
Mini (Vehicle Info-tainment)

here is a preliminary list of tegra2 smartphones ...

Samsung Galaxy S II (in some regions) (smartphone)
Motorola Atrix (smartphone)
Motorola Photon (smartphone)
Motorola Bionic (smartphone)
LG Optimus 2x (smartphone)

1 netbook

NEC 7″ (mini-laptop)

It seems Tegra2 is a widely used tablet-video chip.
the list of tablets is quite long, and far from complete.

Acer Picasso T10A10 (tablet)
Acer Iconia A500 (tablet)
Acer T20 (tablet)
Asus Eee Pad Slider (tablet)
Asus Eee Pad Transformer (tablet)

And I'm guessing BIS got paid by NVIDIA to do this? Probably the same reason why they are going with NVIDIA PhysX. Because they are getting bribed to do so.

There are other free alternatives that work just as good.
