Hi guys,
I'm having a major problem here because whenever I play ArmA II, being online or not, the sky is just grey...
There are clouds, weather, but the sky itself is grey.
By the way...I wanted to post a picture of the in-game sky, but I lack at HTML (or whatever) coding.

If you want to have a Desitiny, find it first.

Do you see sunny weather when you open the editor and set the weather to be sunny and preview the mission?

Just upload your screenshot to a picture host and post the link to it here.

Try to download MODUL_Sky mod...it replaces your sky textures to better ones...

To Foxhound:
Unfortunately, yes I've tried all that and still doesn't work...
I also tried to use the NIM Dynamic Weather Game Logic. Result? Still doesn't work.

To pixy19951031:
Thanks, I'll try it out ;D
Can't guarantee anything though...

Using an addon to try and fix an issue with the default game is not the right way to go. What if a server you want to play on does not allow the addon? First you can't join, and after you disabled it you have cloudy sky again.

What version of Arma 2 are you playing? Did you try updating your GPU drivers?

Foxhound, you are right... It should be the last thing to install that mod, if nothing else helps...

r0fld4nc3 - Is the sky grey from the installing of the game? Did you install patches? If you have the game with the latest patch, in Your place I would save my profile.cfg and reinstall the game...or just delete the Arma2.cfg, and the game generates a new default one... And if you have mods installed, delete them, and install them again one by one, and always run the game to test that mod, and if the sky changes, you find the causer of the problem...

I hope it will help you... Good luck!

I agree with Foxhound. I have the version 1.07 that has just been released and it runs great in my other computer. My profile picture is a picture from my main computer. I also wanted to play the game when I was in my grandparents house so I installed it there too. At first, the game had no problems with textures or sky.
After, I installed patch 1.05. The sky has been cut out ever since...=\
Maybe I'll try reinstalling (I'm lazy =P) but thanks for your advice with the mods too. I'll just copy them all to a temporary folder, delete them from the main ArmA II folder, reinstall, patch the game and place the mods again =) Thanks for your help. If it does not work I'll write again =).
If you have any other suggestions please post them here.

;D
Cheers

ADDED DAYS LATER:

Ok, so I have the picture set up, hope it works for you guys =\
