They could make all the extra bits DLC packs that you have to pay extra for?

 

Like an accessories DLC or something.

 

Or it'd be cool if there were entire army DLC packs, so you could change your skin to British kit and use all the British weapons, like the L85 with all the right stuff, a Sig P226 as a sidearm, L86 and M110/SAW (though I guess that's already in the game, as in the GPMG...) L115A3 sniper, again I guess that's just the L96 since they've modelled it with a fluted barrel...

 

They can't say no to that idea. They get to charge us for it and everything.

 

I'd like to see that as well, I was really impressed with the MoH Campaign controls, you could lean, slide into cover, change fire mode etc it was really good! The only console game I've ever known with all those features. It's a shame the multiplayer was completely different, and sh*t.

You can run ARMA on a laptop... just on lower settings :P

I have a Macbook though. Which I'm sure is more than capable or running it on high, maybe apart from the graphics card.

 

That is, if Arma were Mac compatible <_<

I bet it's not Ed. Mac laptops tend to have crappy graphics and processors compared to other brands, yet you're spending more than twice as much..

I've got an i7 Quadcore (3.2ghz-I think) and 8gb RAM, no idea what the graphics card is, which is why I mentioned it.

It will all be mobile spec though. The ram will be slower than PC ram and the cpu less efficient.

 

Although it should run ARMA 2 if you have a dedi graphics card, even if it is a mobile one. My friend runs it on his Macbook.

If I bootcamp it though, won't only half the specs carry to the windows portion? I'm not sure I even want to, I'm worried it'll get riddled with viruses and stuff like my old laptop did, within a year.

 

I'm just not handy enough with PCs to do anything properly without being a risk of completely FUBARing it.

Get a antivirus programme, and stop going on random porn sites. Use the MacOS for Porn. :P

PC's only get infected from the own user's fault.

 

Not sure about "bootcamp" im sure thats a Mac programme that i've never heard of. Should be fine though.

Hi who has upgraded to premium here?

Ive been playing it on xbox and like the maps a lot.

The downside i think is the 16p limitation.

You dont really have time to destroy much as you spend

most of the time running around...like in cod. Makes my thumb hurt!!

I've got Premium and I've been fighting my way though all the new weapon unlocks, I have to say that the SCAR L and L86 have gained a place in my top favourites, they're like ruddy automatic sniper rifles!

 

Not played any of the new maps yet, need to get some games done to unlock the JNG 90 and the LSAT... Though I'm not particularly turned on by either of them, or the maps, so it might be a while before I bother.

So the new maps and weapons are worth buying? I was interested by the l86 because I'm always using the l85 but if the maps aren't any good then its not worth the money to me.

Since the latest update, I've had huge issues with connection quality.

 

Before the release of Premium and CQC (or whatever it is..), I could connect to pretty much any server, no problem and have almost no issues in-game with ping around 30-50.

 

Since the update, all the servers in the server list are showing 300+ ping, or not even showing any, apart from the rare few showing 30-50 like before.

Sometimes I join a server it just disconnects me, with "Unable to connect to EA Online" or "Disconnected from Server" messages. Then clicking "retry" just tells me the server cannot be found, then I likely never see the server again.

When I eventually get into a game, no matter what ping it showed in the server list, whether it's 30 or 700, I have one of the following:

- Constantly high ping, 300-500+.

- Fluctuating mid-high ping, 50 for a few seconds, then 300 for about 30 seconds, then back down to 50 again.

This is every server I join. Regardless of location, I've tried UK, US, Russian, German, Japanese etc. servers, same result.

 

It's not my PC or Internet connection. No other games do it, I get constant 30-40 ping on CS:S and other games.

I'm not downloading anything, I've even disconnected everything else in my house from my router and tried at all times (peak and non-peak), which made no difference.

 

I've re-installed Origin and BF3, which made no difference either. Restarted the router countless times and restarted my computer even more.

 

With EA Support I got into a continuous loop of "Have you tried re-installing Origin and BF3", "Yes, it made no difference", "Try it again.".

No help found on the forums either, all the moderators just say they'll let the developers know, even in 6 month old threads, so obviously they've doing nothing about it.

 

Does anyone have this problem, or even better, a solution to it!?

 

Any help at all would be amazing.

There's an issue with punkbuster at the moment, which means all ranked servers are getting laggy.

 

Dice are apparently fixing it tomorrow evening though :/

 

Only started happening in the last few days though. Dunno if its this that is causing you problems.

Anyone who has Premium or the CQC DLC, what is "Gun Game" (or whatever) game mode?

Share this post

Simmilar to the CSS/COD versions.

 

Everyone starts with a pistol, and after 2 kills with the weapon they progress onto the next gun. There are 15 guns or something.

Everyone gets the same gun list in the same order.

 

First person to the last stage (knife) and gets a kill wins.
