New "daily" ArmA Demo Update - build 5116 is available.

ArmA Demo 5116 from BI ftp server.

ArmA Demo 1.03 build 5116
January 10, 2007
Copyright © Bohemia Interactive. All rights reserved.
See readme.txt file installed with ArmA Demo for more information.

-== www.armedassault.com ==-


ArmADemo Build 5116 allows to play the demo as a dedicated server host. In order to use this executable as dedicated server you need to start it with commandline parameter


See http://community.bis...edicated_Server

for more information about usage of ArmA Dedicated servers.


You need to copy and overwrite the files in the folder where ArmA Demo is installed using updated files in this archive.


This update is intended for dedicated hosts only. However, it works also as client with some minor glitches and errors.


Note that this executable supports also German language based on your Windows settings (you can also set language in ArmA.cfg file stored in your windows documents folder). It's not recommended to use this exe to play the demo on game clients.


This update requires ArmA Demo 1.03 installed. See readme of the ArmA Demo 1.03 for more information.
