ArmA 2
PC Gamer has an incredible, 60-slot ArmA 2 server. A lovely community of non-intimidating, laid-back regulars make it up. We love co-op.

The best pitch and promise of fun we can make to you is held in these videos—documented evidence of our co-op camaraderie and military antics.

Our ArmA 2 server (known as "The War Walrus") can be found in the ArmA 2 server browser by searching "PC Gamer" after clicking on the "Filter" button. The server is located in Chicago, IL, and we've had players connect from the UK for months without major complaints. Alternatively, the IP is:

We'd kindly ask you to join our Ventrilo server whilest playing, too.

We don't require any mods to play on the Walrus, though we recommend several to improve the experience.

[LIST][*][URL="http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=5884"]VopSound[/URL] - Much more immersive sounds.[*][URL="http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=6628"]GDT Grass Mod[/URL] - The lawnmower mod—it cuts down the grass on Chernarus. Sure it's a "hack," but it makes it easier to see when prone.[*]WarFX [URL="http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=8182"]Particles[/URL] / [URL="http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=8165"]Tracers[/URL] - Pretty graphics! Awesome fire, smoke, explosions, and tracer effects to replace the default.[/LIST]
Also, we recommend not running ACE2 mod—we've had issues with players that run it and the missions we play.

Usuable with demo?
Would this server happen to be playable with the demo version by chance? Kinda wanted to try out the game before i buy.

Im waiting for the next sale on steam before getting this game. Anyone know when that will be?

Vagabond 06-12-2010 11:37 PM

You might as well just wait for the compilation of the base game and Operation Arrowhead now. Buy it here: [url]http://www.arma2.com/crossroad-sprocketbanner.html[/url]

I might pay a visit sometime. I assume this is hosted in the US but it can't be any worse than our attempts at playing hosted on someone's PC.

GDT Grass Mod also gave me a 10 frame boost in my performance.

Looking forward to playing with you guys again.
