(20 September 2014 - 08:14 PM)8.5 GB in 11 minutes! Thats 12.87 mbps! 12.87 x 60 = 772 mb a minute! 8500/772 = 11.01GB. You know if you went 1mb/s you would have saved 3GB. So yeah, that's bad unless your ISP delivers unlimited internet.
I realise some people have been complaining that they still can't get on.
This is most likely due to you still running beta, stop running it.
If you are using Arma 2 Launcher, go to your launch options and untick the 'Run beta' checkbox.
This is because 1.63 is no longer a beta, which also means if you run the beta now you won't be able to see the server.
As most of you may already know, Gamespy is shutting down and due to this we have updated our server to comply with the new steam browser. Which means if you are having problems connecting. Make sure you update your arma 2.
Most of you should already have this update. But some of you may need to revert back to the stable build, Several people are having problems running the beta.
For those of you who haven't already converted to steam, You will now HAVE TO RUN ARMA 2 through steam, You can convert your cd-keys into Steam products here
