Spanish guys know that it will be released 16th here too, could be few days after that anyways. (its going to be received soon on mediamarkt, centromail, ...)
Couldnt confirm anything about copy protection anyways.

BTW: It will cost 38,95

Wow, great news all around! I can only hope the NA release is Securom as well instead of Starforce, then I can give away my Morphicon Version.

This is truely great news. I also look forward to hearing about the North American release as well, but with something other than Starforce confirmed from 505 I doubt I will wait but rather contact some of my "friends" across the pond for a little ordering assistance.:)

When can I update my 1.02 to the current Feb 16th release version?


Can someone please tell me when the patch for all of the current 1.02 owners will be released? I already own the Czech version and I don't want to buy the UK version.

However, since I live in the U.S., I'll buy the U.S. version in May.

The patch has nothing to do with 505Games and the UK/France/Spain/... release.
Its a BIS problem, so Anna cant tell us anything about it, i guess.

I would say they will do it the same day, but im just guessing.

The 505 version is 1.05
It was stated the patch (1.05) will be released at the end of february.


The patch for all versions will be released later cause I guess they want the 505 version people to be able to enjoy the additional stuff exclusively.
The 505 version will contain new content, and if they update all version same day the 505 version isnt much exclusive right?

Yeah, I know it sucks. This means 2 weeks of incompatible versions :(
I will buy the 505 version but I am not sure when I will start using it since all of the guys I play with should than have it.

IGN does the same thing to entice stupid people to purchase memberships so they can dl demos three days before the rest of the world.

Personally, I'd much rather wait the three days to a week when the servers aren't overloaded.

I do have to say that I really think this whole system of screwing over loyal and longstanding fans of OFP/ArmA so a Publisher can make a few extra bux pocket money is dumb. Just knowing this, I will instead wait for this patch and play with myself (thanks) and then give Atari the money that I may have given to 505.

I really, really hope that 505 and BIS send a bunch of PR folks into the community and gather up some of this feedback. I have a feeling if there's even a hint of game2 being half as screwed as ArmA has been since day one, it may fall flat on its face.

I stick with BI/ArmA because they are a community minded dev. but they really need to get their act together. If you can't show the world some structure in releasing software, does that lack of organization also mean the game is delayed time and time again for the same reason?

Please BIS/505, pull your heads from your rumps and play the game honestly, after all, we ultimately pay your wages.

i got the 505 version 2day aswell:D, and this is what i'fe noticed.

1 I can play the German and 505 version with the same (505) original DVD in my DVD drive (i bet this is due to the securom protection)
2 I have the german version 1.02.5103 in folder /_Arma and i am able to play online.
3 And i have the 505 version 1.04.5121 in /Arma and play it online aswell

With a remark, the server version's need to correspond with the version ur useing.

I do not have to switch key's etc. it will just accept it, but i can't tell wich key is beiing used.
And the best part, when u install the 2nd arma version, it uses the settings from the previous installed version....:D

Yes I also have the 505 version.
I decided to un-stall my German 1.02 version then found when I installed the 1.04 [from 505] it had retrieved all my settings
Another plus is it looks better and my fps are much higher without me changing any thing.

As for the new browser/interface that is just beutiful.

Also like the new training missions.

Great thanks
