I personally am loving it. my friends and i all have little to no problems. we have set up a server and are playing your pre-made missions and are having tons of fun.
it is buggy but totally playable. Remember Guys, ITS ALPHA!

Just a few bugs id thought Id mention:
1. No sound except "Death music" after team switching after death in editor.
2. Server crashes result in the game crashing itself. Me and a friend were in a server that crashed and both our games crashed at the same time.
3. Can't fire through certain windows/windows won't break (Just simple house windows). Vehicle windows can be shot through but sometiems you can't (IE the KA-60, or apcs/troop transport).
4. Server bowser not displaying pings. Sorting by players doesnt display server population in the correct order.

Oh and my system specs:
I7 2600k @ 3.4ghz
Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti (factory) OC
8gb of RAM
Win 7 Home 64-bit

I would also love to play this game as well but i load a server paly for 20 minutes then CTD! Fustrating I know its an Alpha but come on!!!

Besides some initial launch issues that was easy to fix (once I knew what to do) it has been a blast so far. There are some issues of course, but for an alpha it's frikkin great. I played almost 8 hours straight, no leaks, no crashes :)

So much better than ARMA 2. Movement and graphics much smoother, better weapon handling. Just great!!!! Sure it has buggs, slowdowns, crash etc.... But its an ALPHA....Great jobb Bohemia Interactive. keep it up.
Jackal Mar 5, 2013 @ 11:53pm 
Aaaahhhh I just love this game!! I can't wait to do missions with others in multiplayer!

I think this game is indeed a very good investment...

I get a whole PC lockup whenever I try to start a mission, get the loading bar at the top, seems to get all the way across and then lock, so not even got to try it out yet, but this is to be expected for a new game in Alpha, I can wait for a fix.

Screenshots look great, can't wait to get some of my own! Good job BI, I'm sure you'll do your best to get things sorted as soon as possible.

Is the Gamespy stuff just standing in till you implement Steamworks for server browser?

Does BiS feel that the server / netcode from Arma II is sufficiant enough to make work for Arma III or is that going to get a complete overhaul?

Its cool and all, but I really hope you can give refunds to the people that cant run this game on their quite capable systems.

The only really issue i could find yet is that the cars are again way to light, if you crash a car with just 50 mph, it just jumps into the air, such a thing would totally not happen in real life.

Drivers guys....you have got to work with AMD and Nvidia....we cant have another rehash of ARMA 2 and waiting over a year for proper video drivers and as is.......it's a mess in the performance department regardless of the hardware your sporting.

Some hyperthreading might help too ;) because there's none on my end.
Groover Mar 6, 2013 @ 4:56am
