just remember you must have patched ARMA 2 to 1.07 and OA to 1.54 before installing BAF

40 minutes after your first answer i was already playing the mission

Grand Theft Info (had allot of fun).

Every thing went very smooth.

Ordering and payment took about 5 minutes.

Seconds after i received a download link and a serial.

Download took about 20 minutes on 350 kbs on average,

(i am in israel on a 4MBit connection).

Installing took about 2 minutes.

Every thing is working and I am very happy.

I just want to say it is a real pleasure to have

devs answering your questions, that is not obvious these days.

To all BI team i wish best of luck and keep your way of doing things

supporting the community and PC gaming (which is not obvious either today)

Sincerely,

Bez.

a loyal customer since 2001.

Just bought BAF off sprocket (one minor problem) and I simply want to say thank you! Finished and replayed the Merlin Mission several times in the last hour. I LOVE that kind of mission. Now I'm going for the Wildcat mission.

THANK YOU!

I had one problem though. I can't run sprocket.exe for some reason. When I tried nothing happend (I mean really NOTHING, even the taskmanager showed nothing. Not even for a second). I had to download it through my browser.

Nevertheless, I'll definetely buy your games, DLCs etc. via sprocket in the future. Just a few clicks and it's there :D

Only the speed could be a bit higher for my taste. I only got 1.3MB/s^^

I wish we could have the exe file in case we have to unenstall Arma2 and need to reinstall instead of having to download from steam sites.

Is the campaign coop?

Not sure if 2 months counts as necromancy but...

I've searched this thread but didn't see a reply.

Anyone?

No, the BAF campaign is SP only, but you can play mission 3 in MP. I believe it's called something along the lines of "Heat" when you're selecting a MP mission to launch.

Steam has a built in backup function, you could always use that?

As BAF specifics get answered here I posted a BAF campaign issue where BAF wont let me access my other campaigns without removing it.

Sorry to cross post but heres the full issue:

http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=109387

I posted here becuase its specific to BAF and people in troubleshooting may not all have BAF to help, searched but couldn't find anything specific to it here.

EDIT, this was solved and my apologies to Dwarden for getting him to smash his head against a desk, I hold my own head in shame. I have entered the lonely world that is known to all users as ... "the land of user error" .... I feel unclean.

ROFL! I bet you saw me there? I was the guy outside the bar sticking my head in the sand in shame :D And I didn't feel lonely there either, in fact, it was pretty smack full :) It's like a pilgrimage or something - we all have to go there at least once...

18. Bonus: Textures quality for BAF-Lite doubled

Nice. Thanks for this. Makes it more attractive to play I hope. How about reticle graphics? I'm hoping for full graphics so that those "lighters" that end up with a BAF role in a realistic setting (no weapon selection) is still able to fight. Current reticles are utterly hopeless with all that blur (sorry).

And, what am I looking at exactly? What I think I'm looking at?

Can't just spend $10 and get loads of units, some vehicles, new map and a new campaign at very high quality?

For someone who has been around so long, I would think you'd appreciate the work BIS put into the new vehicles and especially the new units(Which are the best made by BIS so far, in my opinion)

I don't understand this random hatred towards DLC, it's the same as a retail copy but easier. :j:

It's a personal matter. Maybe it's the way of the future, but it's just not me. I don't see myself behind the wheels of an electric car either for that matter.

£8?!

I'll wait for Project Reality thanks...

It's outrageous, I know. I'm going to starve my family for a few days so that I can afford it.

PR will surely be great when it will be availeable but youre definatly not wasting your money if you buy the BAF DLC before.

Excellent units, texture and model wise, excellent vehicles and a short but very good campaign.

Doubt the PR units will be as good tbh, not to mention that you can use British units on unmodded servers since the release of BAF.

Judging by your other posts I suspect your opinion is slightly less valuable than the £8 you need to pay for the DLC... Actually it's £4 now if you buy it with PMC. £12 for 2 new factions, campaigns, maps and scenarios? Thanks very much, I'd take that offer if I hadn't already bought BAF on release.

Sooo, how can I bring up those new UGL sights for the L85A2?

Nothing has changed for me... my avatar is still aiming over the full weapon. :confused:
