HEY!

tired of the 1.18 menu graphics bug? thinking you waste your money? HAHA
well, dont worry! there's a fix for that! It took me 1 1/2 months to find a solution on this one.

first:
I bought ARMA X, the ARMA GOLD is already 1.18,
I tried it out and tada, the graphics bug. -_- , I decided to borrow my cousins ARMED ASSAULT witch is 1.04. I ran the game and it worked pretty well.

Now let see:
1.04 - worked fine! :-D
Patched it to 1.05 - worked fine! :-D
Patched it to 1.08 - worked fine! :-D
Patched it to 1.14 - worked fine! :-D
Patched it to 1.18 - got the bug! :'(

SO it is said that 1.14 is the version that will work on some users without the graphics bug.
SO if I install ARMA GOLD I have 1.18. I should downgrade it but how? It's impossible.

SO what's the fix? update my grahpics card? (well that will work but my solution is different)

MY SOLUTION THAT WORK ON ME:HAVE THE ORIGINAL EXE OF THE 1.14 VERSION AND REPLACE THE 1.18 VERSION
(just the arma.exe is required.)

Doing this so is like downgrading your version. ;-)

ALSO, DONT FORGET TO BACKUP.

What ERROR may I get If I did that?
SURELY Multiplayer problem will be a big deal, but I tried everything and it's good with the GOLD edition, campaigns are present and islands too!

Where I can get an ORIGINAL EUROPEAN EXE VERSION of 1.14?
Modedit:
No sharing of official files on Armaholic. People should contact the publisher or try with BI directly!

PS. DONT USE CRACK. MAY RESULT ON HAVING A VIRUS ON YOUR PC. ALSO MAY STEAL YOUR CD KEY!!!

BEFORE


AFTER

TAKE A LOOK AT THAT! :-D ALSO it SAYS ARMA ARMED ASSAULT BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY GOLD, IT IS BECAUSE OF THE EXE. :-D


See, missions do work. 8-)

Also here's my Laptop specs. (I run arma gold on a laptop, DONT ASK WHY)
Intel Core I3 2.3 GHz (2 cores, 4 threads)
Intel HD 3000 with 1797 shared graphic memory, THIS IS THE REASON WHY I HAVE THAT PROBLEM even if it's LATEST.
4GB DDR3 ram
Windows 7 x64 home premium.
*CRAZY*

We do not allow the sharing of files here on Armaholic.
So please do not share any file here in the thread or in private. Anyone who has this issue and owns the legal game can always contact the publisher or maybe even BI directly and ask if they can somehow help!

BI staff Dominik Flandera allowed me to post the file with the solution. Armaholic doesnt allow file sharing, so if you want the file, get it at bi forum:

Link will lead you to BI FORUMS :-D

BI Forum Thread

it's in a zip format, so what's in it?
1. arma.exe
2. permission.png - to prove that I have permission
3. virscan.txt - txt file of scan # 3 to prove no viruses in arma.exe
4. scan1.png - image file of the scan to prove no viruses in arma.exe
5. scan1.png - image file of the scan to prove no viruses in arma.exe

*all scan are different. it means I scan if with 3 online virus scanner.
namely: VirSCAN, Metascan Online, and VirusTotal.

Hello, i see that people still have same problem as i. I have tried solution from post above... and it works, only the problem is that this sollution makes game v.1.14 and not 1.18. And there is only few players and one or two servers that still plays v.1.14. And the most of servers is in v.1.18. I have buyed my arma a long time ago. But not long ago i have found it and wanted to play it again. Version of my game was 1.04 if i remember correctly so i patched it up to 1.05 then 1.08 and 1.14 but then when i wanted to patch game to 1.18 it always ends like on screenshots from above :/ soon i will have new PC and A3 so i will not give a crap on A1 anymore but untill then i try "enjoy" A1. It would be nice to see that someone still care about Arma1 :)
