Thanks to everyone involved, we are getting close to final state.

* all signature problems should be gone finally

* the official expansions are handled better using registry based system now, should make the in game expansions manager more useful than before

As our plan is to release final 1.60 prior Christmas please focus on regressions or installation problems only at this stage.

Note:
this RC contains
ARMA 2: OA update 1.60
ARMA 2 update 1.11
ARMA 2: BAF update 1.03
ARMA 2: PMC update 1.02

Death camera (the one that overviews the killer top down) still lags horribly when watched unit is moving

Also don't forget that strafing speed with AT needs fixing before 1.60 comes out seeing how it's just one step away and it still isn't fixed.
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

Death camera sounds like regression, is it on cit anywhere?

The other problem however does not and we do not plan any further new tweaks and fixes for 1.60 at this stage.

Ugh but the movement speed with AT to the right was broken since 1.58RC. Isn't fixing it a simple task?

Not sure. Will post it as an issue then. Need to make a good repro first.

Cool - the '3b' patch now no longer tries to update A2 in the OA directory structure and as an added bonus updates the A2 install as well! I no longer needed to unpack the exe and apply the A2 fix manually.

This is due to the interpolation changes, needs using visiblePosition new command.

Posted Image Master of testing for a better Arma and well, for science.
Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they don´t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

Little Dev Question beside ongoing Business :

Does alternative AA Modes always needed to be full implemented into the Engine? I only ask because injected AA (SMAA in this Case) doesn´t work properly with CO (morphing Textures, LOD trashing), and maybe there is another Way.

Have no problems with SMAA either. And I love it. Include it! Include it!
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

I like it too...although it does warp the UI text in a weird way. Still readable, though.

Too busy with RL currently so no test case, sorry...
A small interpolation change regression... If one player spectates another player who has picked up a CTF flag (setFlagOwner, etc.)
via spectating/camera script the flag position stutters.
The player moves smooth (visiblePosition) but the flag itself does not.

It's because it postprocesses the whole frame. Integrated SMAA will smooth only 3D. Just like ArmA2 FXAA does now.

It's the same bug as with death camera.
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Yes same here. I switch off ATOC, FXAA and FSAA and use SMAA 1.2 with "ultra" settings. The game runs smooth and looks good.

Combined with SSAO, it looks beautiful. :)

actually i think AToC+SMAA might produce better result

so unless AToC is high fps hit for You it should be best keep it enabled

I just tried that in game, but for ATOC to do anything, there needs to be some FSAA, which makes the small dots appear around all the Utes/Chernarus trees :(
