If this is how ArmAII is supposed to look on a GeForce 9800GT and a Core2Duo E6600,
I may just as well play OFP.
These graphics are LOL.

I hope they fix the graphics in a patch, cause this actually chocked me.

JPEG compression much? Who took that screenshot?

your video card simply couldnt coupe with it, face that, 8800/9800GT is not a new card anymore, lower video standard so that you still can run the game

Hi,

I'm wondering...does anyone else have an issue with the print screen button only copying a black screen into the clipboard?

Also, any suggestions on how to take screenshots would be nice, as my printscreen button isn't working properly, and Irfanview doesn't like me.

Yeah, the black screen on PrintScr is common apparently, I suggest using FRAPS to take screenshots.

If this is the case, BIS should consider a builtin screen grabber (without the border if in windowed mode) that saves directly to compressed jpg or png, when you press the PrintScr key.

Heh, I like that picture of the billboard, Gart. I like the little nod towards OFP players with it being made by "Malden Tours". :D

Also, can someone make this thread a sticky? I think people are commenting in the photo thread because they can't see this as I had to look to the bottom of the page to find it. Would eliminate that excuse.

Yeah I guess it can't hurt until more of the newbies are familiar with how it works.
