Well I`ve been playing ARMA 2 Reinforcments from 10-12 months,but now from around 2 weeks I keep getting some kind of FADE related bug or something.While playing I get a "Bohemia Interactive presents" on my screen simmilar to the intro of the game,the ARMA 2 logo with some trumpets in the background and then a noise of splashing water and my vision gets blurry.Basicily it looks like my characther is on LSD!
I bought ARMA from Steam and yet I still get this BS along with "fadded" weaponry that is innacurate over ranges of 50 cantimeters.If you can help me fix this,that be great as reinstalling dosent help me.

Reinstalling the game is the only solution AFAIK. If not, you should check with Steam what happened.

I tried reinstalling and Steam said they are not the faulty side.What the fuck?
EDIT: Yeah I had a bunch of mods packed up in a .rar for a friend and the game thought it was a modified file so it turned on the FADE,atleast thats my theory testing it now.

I would delete anything and use CC cleaner or whatever to clear the registry too.

@DaSergant please watch the language, try a full reinstall with latest patch NOT the beta patch!
also with no mods running and try again. Also update your driver settings too. Trying a new install
with vanilla game should work fine, if not then im only thinking you have either lent your game serial
to another person or shared the disk etc to another computer meaning you have registered it twice and
now its thinking its been pirated where as the fade has kicked in.

If you wish, you can send your proof of purchase to Foxhound and hey may be able to sort it for you.

You do not have to proof at all you bought the game from Steam. If you are using Steam you need to have bough it otherwise Steam would not let you use it.

Anyway, once FADE is activated it stays activated. You will have to uninstall all Arma games, remove any and all reference to those games from your PC (folders and registery), reboot and reinstall.
Get rid of all mods as well, make a 100% clean install and see if the issue continues.
Make sure to launch Arma 2 once before installing OA and launch OA as well (I think this will autoactivate CO).
