Q: Arma 2

Hi lads.

i've got a problem with my mouse in Arma 2, in that there is massive lag between me moving the mouse and the action happening on screen.

i only get this problem with this game. boiling point, farcry 2, unreal tournament 3, etc i have no problems.

the lag for mouse movement is so bad that it makes the game totally unplayable and unenjoyable, despite the guns, and graphics being terrific.

also, is there any way to turn off the ridiculous blur you get when you turn left or right, impossible to see anything.

cheers lads.

A:Arma 2

bump. any help lads?

oh, if it helps i'm using vista 64bit premium, 2x512mb 9800gt in sli and a logitech mouse.

I have edited your post to remove bad language. Please be a bit more careful when expressing your frustrations

Any Beta software always has bugs and is intended for testing purposes. It is sensible not to use Beta software if you can't manage the fallout & consequences of problems with it

Want to ask if ARMA 2 will be able to run in a laptop, just for the Christmas break.

Processor 2.0GHz AMD Turion X2 Mobile RM-70
Memory 3,072MB DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz
Hard drive 250GB, 5,400rpm
Chipset AMD RS780M Azalia Controller
Graphics ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 (integrated)
Operating System Windows 7

Now don't flame me for using the integrated sound/VGA, since I will be using the low settings for ARMA 2.

Any insights here?

A:ARMA 2....fffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu-

depends... laptops are not suitable for games, due to the integrated video card... You may run it... but may be laggy.

go to and see if the game is listed for you to check the computer for your answer.

What are the specifications needed to run Arma 3 on each setting (if you could say for single player and multiplayer). I also realize that on servers it depends somewhat on how the actual server runs. Thank you! Maybe make a list ex:CoreGraphics cardEtc

A:Specifications for Arma 3

It's really hard to give definite numbers as there are so many variables and different people have different definitions of what would be classed as "running well".  Your best bet is to look around on forums/videos to see the actual performance that different people get with different specs of systems.

I recently had to reinstall Windows due to an unrelated issue. Before then, I had perfect gameplay on ArmA3, tabbing out took less than a second and I got around 40FPS on High/Standard settings.

Now, however, after having to reinstall Windows, I am experiencing bad lag on most aspects of my machine. On bootup, actual multiple monitors used to load instantaneously. Now I'm waiting around 15 seconds for the second taskbar to appear.

Playing ArmA, there's a noticeable choppiness in the game, and tabbing out can take up to 30 seconds. In addition to the lag, I've been experiencing a LOT of BSODs.

I've turned on Verifier, and will

The most recent error was "Special pool detected memory error" along with the following in Event Viewer:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c1 (0xfffff900cb2e0f30, 0xfffff900cb2e0da8, 0x000000000015a0c8, 0x0000000000000023). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: .
I'm uploading the memory dump now...

I'm pretty certain it is a driver issue, yet Windows cannot detect any driver updates. I've updated my Realtek audio drivers and the Catalyst Control Centre installed whatever it found as the latest I'm certain, so I'm kinda unsure as to what to do next.

A:Arma 3 Requirements help

Hi bkjummpan23,

You have listed the minimum and recommended but I have no idea what you're running, could you provide your specs please. If you don't know what hardware you're running then you can use this to find out:

ArmA 3 is VERY CPU heavy, being a military sim it performs so many more calculations than your typical game. I'd also go as far to say that Bohemia have a habit of not fleshing out their games properly to ensure they run perfectly. Lower quality hard drives also bottleneck performance on games of this size, so you may want to look in to a solid state drive.

I'll be able to give you more info when you provide your specs.

Hello, my 15 year old son and I share a computer and he occasionally switches from his Xbox to my computer when I am not using it. He decided one day to do somthing I did not allow him to do on my computer, which was to download things. He downloaded a hack, and installed it onto my Arma 2. I'll give a link to the hack.
< Removed link to hack - ETAF Moderator >
Long story short, I caught him and he can never use my computer again. But whenever I got to connect to a server, Battleye (a lot like Punkbuster) detects the hack and kicks me from the game. I know what the name of the file the hack is, it is called "Darky.pbo" but when I look where it is supposed to be, I never find it. Can anyone help me with uninstalling this hack? I strongly suggest you take the link and see for yourself how they tell you to install it, and what it is. Thank you


A:Arma 2 Can't join games.

welcome here m8

Firstly, its not a good idea to post such links. Hacks are generally despised by the gaming community (as I am sure you know!) and linking MAY go to a "bad" site,

second, as for the problem... suggest you get the young one to sit down and remove it, although I doubt he could. I would expect that the hack modifies game files client side (on your computer) and may use an injector- a way of forcing information into memory once it has loaded that allows exploits to be used.

EDIT to above- I found more info and confirm my suspicions on the hack use.

The world is full of people who cry that someone else installed a hack, thus should you receive any form f ban it is unlikely that it would be revoked, I am afraid. And for the record, my knowledge cones from being a server admin for a number of games, and working closely with staff at an anti-cheat site

Before I take the plunge, I like to have a little background history on this. I like tactical games but I dislike Non-User friendly games. I played it for a few moments at a friends house but didn't like it much because of the fact that it had WAY to many key binding options that look like they were very similar to each other.

Of the few I remember were:

Aim Down
Aim Down Toggle
Zoom In
Zoom In Toggle
Zoom Out
Zoom Out Toggle

To me they should all do the same but if they don't, doesn't it look like to many options? I mean, once I zoom in, I want to be able to use the same mouse/kb button to zoom out. Also, aim down is the same as zoom in... at least to me.

Is the campaign worth this hassle? and believe me, its been a while since I have played a good FPS campaign so I am jonesing for something else at the moment that I will try almost anything.

A:Arma II... anybody playing the Campaign?

if you like running around around for hours on end with NOTHING to do but try and remember which key your supposed to press to do what and like a game that takes "realism" FAR too far then its the game for you

personally id like to take my copy over to the developers house and shove it where the sun dont shine , it was buggy in the demo , the original release was buggy and now after a flurry of pointless patches its still buggy.

the gameply videos they released before the games launch are the best thing about the game

and YES IM VERY BITTER!!!!!!!!!!!

hello, Damonjay I'll see if I can help. As I am sure you know, your issue is your graphics drivers/card. All of the dump files I looked at are the same.


Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: fffffa80070e6010, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88004eaa81c, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).

Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.
A TDR failure (Timeout Detection and recovery) basically means your graphics drivers crashed but did not recover in time. Windows assumes a hardware failure and shuts down to protect itself. They can be caused by several things, but it is usually the Graphics drivers or the card. This is your current driver

What are you going to use the PC for?: Gaming ( Games such as ArmA II, Day Z and BF3 )
How much is your budget?: $1000-1050
Where are you located? (a.k.a. fill out your profile): I live in Australia which might make this a bit more difficult.
Are you willing to buy online?: Buying online is what I was wanting to do.
Are you going to re-use any parts from an earlier build?: No.
Do you need other peripherals like a monitor, keyboard and mouse, among others?: No, I already have decent parts along them lines.
Have you already bought any parts?: Not yet, I'm wanting your feedback and advice.
Do you have an Operating System (OS)?: Yes, I'll be running Windows 7.
Will you need any aftermarket cooling, such as a CPU\GPU cooler or a watercooling setup?: Im not planing to overclock at this moment.


A:New $1,000ish gaming rig for Arma II, BF3 etc.

Hey good to see somebody using the outline to give us the information.
I also live in Australia, and don't worry there's some good shops around here.
so it would help if you told me in which state you live:
I personally used MSY and had no issues with them.

not sure about the other states, sorry.

anyway, since you have a decent budget I'm sure we can find something right for you. I'll just throw together a quick list for you then.

Case option 1: Corsair Carbide 400r - $118
(this is more on the classy/sleek design side. I have one of these myself and can say it's a great case)
Case option 2: Coolermaster CM-690 II windowed edition - $119
(this is more on the showy/LED's/windowed design side)
CPU: intel i5 3570 - $219
(since you aren't planning to overclock)
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO - $36
(It's always good to have an aftermarket cooler. Quieter, better temps, aesthetics, and prolonged CPU life)
Graphics card: Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC'ed edition- $249
(this thing is damn powerful, should handle all modern games with ease.)
SSD: Samsung 830 64GB - $79
(OPTIONAL- but would be a nice addition to your build, will make loading things much faster)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB - $69
(for storage. not sure how much space you need so went with cheaper option for now)
Memory: Corsair CMX 8GB (2x4GB 1600MHz) - $59

A:BSOD with DayZ Arma 2 Mod

Since you are not getting any blue screens when playing any other games, your system will be probably okay. Mods are done by third parties and it is highly likely there may be serious bugs in the mod. I checked the official site and this mod is even not in beta stage. It is still a alpha release so i don't wonder in the crashes.You may contact the developer of the mod for possible resolution.

Mouse works in game to look, shoot etc, but in the HUD/Setup options it doesn't, cant use it to change settings, or click on anything, its just dead. I can see the pointer, move the pointer, but that's it.

Cant see a fix online but as I am new to Arma I may be looking in the wrong place. Any advice would be great. Computer Specs avail in profile.

Issue is as follows

I have a 4 monitor setup. For some reason, playing Arma 3 on the Primary monitor disables the mouse in Options/Huds
Moving the game to a secondary monitor fixes this issue.


Game is crap. You would seriously need to be a typist and a memory expert to be able to play this, as much as it doesn't baby the player with "We'll give you a fighting chance" and is as real to war as one could expect from never ever being close to a real war, the commands are in the hundreds and they are spread out across the keyboard. A gaming pad/console wouldn't help, changing the layout is a mistake, you still have to remember 100+ keys to play.

In Australia, we pay through the nose for everything, I just wasted $60.

Then i downgraded my Nvidia drivers (GTX 690) to those released in July last year (353.62).

The System Requirements are unfortunately not very accurate.

The Game is very demanding on the CPU, but doesn't utilized the cores properly and a high Single-Core-Speed (via OC) is more important than the amount of cores. SLI get's not proper utilized as well.

I struggle even with my rig, but I should be able to play the final maybe with high / very high settings in Single-Player and acceptable fps, but Multi-Player combined with a large amount of AI is even more hardware hungry.

Hello, I have been getting random BSoD and memory crashes.

The BSoD happens pretty much random. I might be just talking on TeamSpeak, browsing the net on Firefox, or ingame on Arma 2 and bam BSoD.

The memory crashes mainly happen ingame on Arma 2.

I though maybe I had a software glitch, but I reinstalled the OS and Arma last night. I still got the BSoD pretty quickly and I was only on Teamspeak while I was installing the Epoch mod for Arma. That was last night around (7.15.15) 08:55PM. I have not received any BSoD so far today, however I did crash out due to memory around 01:05PM today. I think this is due to memory because the error that pop's up on screen says something about memory.

Here is what I found in event viewer for the crash at 01:05PM today.

A corrected hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Corrected Machine Check
Error Type: Internal parity error
Processor ID: 2
I was having the memory problem about 3 months ago. So I got two 8 GB corsair vengeance DDR3 sticks. Both installed totaling 16GB of ram.

Motherboard: Asus P8 Z77-V LE plus
CPU: Intel i5 3570K (overclocked to 4.2GHz) The CPU is water cooled
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti
RAM: Stated above
Hard Drive: I was running a WD black as C drive. Last night I reinstalled win7 on my samsung 840 PRO SSD. I do have some other drives that are backups.

I've had problems with this for a while now. I will randomly BSOD during Arma 3 and other games. Temps are known to be good, CPU runs at about 40C under load, GPU runs at about 55-60C during heavy gameplay on ultra graphics settings. Most definitely not a cooling issue. I'm pretty sure it is driver/software related. I suspect the network card is the culprit, but I've been wrong a few times on this already.

You didn't really give enough system specs but here is 3rd generation drivers, the top two depending on whether you are 32 or 64 bit. If you are 4th generation then you need HD 4600 drivers.

Some quite commited PC gamers will have played/heard/encountered the game Arma 2 and its standalone expansions Operation Arrowhead and Reinforcements (all of which I recently purchased).

However despite attempts at optimisation in OA and Reinforcements the game/s requirements are still HUGE, arguebly due to it being a PC only game. Me and a group of friends who ocasionally meet to play lan on this game have been debating for quite a while what the issue is. I personally think the game is simply poorly optimized as the Graphics are mediocre at best:

It also runs poorly on my System by comparison to games such as World In Conflict and Crysis 2 both of which I can run fine maxed out...However keep in mind that it is really the only game with a fully-fledged battle situation over realistic distances, damage and projectile calculation.

As I said, personally I think Bohemia Interactive could have tried a bit harder/spent more time to make the game perform a lot better as from what I have heard IGN and Gamespot couldn't find a rig that would run it at acceptable levels maxed out (I have been wrong before)..

Anyone played/know this game who can comment/discuss on this issue?

Hi sevenforums

At my wits end. After running and passing every single test I can find I'm at a loss as to why my new rig bombs a few mins into playing Arma 2 / DayZ standalone.

. I ran Memtest 86+ and completed 4 passes
. Finished the Burn-in test on Furmark
. Finished Prime95... err
. Ran Chkdsk /R on Sata and SSD

After reading a similar post the only thing I can think of is my Belkin Wireless N has slightly ropey drivers but I have the right version installed according to the website.

have filled in my systems specs but didnt have an option for psu so here it is.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stop 0x124 never provides much good information and doesn't point any specific hardware; "AuthenticAMD" is a generic probably caused line with 0x124 BSODs, that's why it's always best to test all the hardware and follow the steps within the 0x124 link.

Here are some programs which will come in useful when following the steps -

Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Hey guys!

New to seven forums so i apologies if i am doing this incorrect, I recently re-installed windows on my computer and did a full fresh install due to my hard-drive getting too full! Since then i have re-installed my gaming collection mostly through steam, and since then i have been receiving multiple BSOD's a day but usually only when im playing graphically demanding games.

Im no pro at this but my first thought was the RAM so i ran windows memory diagnostics and it came back clean, I have my minidump files and have attached them, if there is any other information i am leaving out please get back to me and i will give you all that i can, Really appreciate it if one of you gods among men could have a look at this and help me resolve this issue!


A:Multiple BSOD's while gaming (Arma 3) error 0x00000050

Hi -

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Memory diagnostics and Memtests are not reliable. The problem may be very well with memory but the tools would not catch it. You would have to try a new RAM kit (or borrow) in order to rule out faulty RAM.

Please follow what's asked in this quote:

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages (QPI/DRAM core voltage) are set at.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

I've been having very random BSOD's while gaming. I can't seem to find a pattern for it. Sometimes it can happen several times within and hour or not for 12 hours. It only occurs during gaming. Normal operation, web browsing ect.. is not affected.


Windows 7 Professional 64bit
i7 3770k
Asus P8z77-v
(4) 4G DDR3 1600 mhz
Sapphire 7970 OC 3Gb (running an eyefinity display group)
240G Sandisk SSD (OS Drive)
1 TB Seagate
Antec 620 cooler
1100w Majesty PSU

I have already ran mem tests (6 passes) with no errors. I also did a system verifier that also came back with no errors. I just reformatted as well thinking that it would solve it (hence only 2 dump files at this time), no luck. I also did a video card stress test with FurMark at max settings for an hour in an attempt to replicate the BSOD. No luck with that either (though that card took the stress like a boss ).

Sledgehammer is already on standby at this point.

A:BSOD playing CS:GO/APB/ARMA II, error 0x0000003b & 0x000000a

Hello fxblaze and welcome to Sevenforums.

As it's only happening during gaming, what's the temperatures just before a crash? You can download Speccy and monitor those numbers.
Different culprits pointed towards your ATI Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.

* Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
* Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
* Download Driver Sweeper
* Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your START
* Select all the ATI components and analyse them
* Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previouslyBest Regards,

Hey all!

I've had this computer for a year and never had any problems with BSOD until I started streaming about a month ago. I ran into a few BSOD while streaming ARMA 3 over a week or two, but not enough to really bring up any concern for me. This weekend however I was streaming the new Division Beta and I'm getting BSOD every hour almost. One time I think I was good for 2-3 hours but it usually doesn't last that long. The most recent BSOD didn't include a dump for some reason and after the previous one today I started messing with system settings like making sure stuff wasn't overclocked, dusty, and put my CPU power settings on balanced still no dice. The only dump I have is before I messed with settings so I'll include that.

Hi, so earlier today i launched arma 2 and then all of a sudden my computer went to a blue screen with a big sad face saying an error occurred and we are collecting error data or something along those lines. I have had my computer for over 5 months with no problems it is a dell inspiron 17R. and now every time i turn my computer on this comes up:

Your PC needs to be repaired
The boot configuration Data file is missing some required information.

File: /BCD
Error code: 0xc0000034

Youll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. if you dont have any installation media(like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.
I have done everything i can think of to try and fix this. I put in the recovery media disc and that didnt work. I followed the directions on several other threads similar to this one and i still come to this blue screen every time i turn the computer on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Playing Arma 2, File /BCD Error code:0xc0000034

Error code: 0xc0000034 is "Object name not found" - in other words, it's pointing to something (such as a file) that isn't where it's supposed to be. This can be due to a software error or a hardware error.

I've been getting BSODs randomly while playing Arma 2 with the Dayz mod. At first I thought it must be something with the game but I've also gotten BSODs playing Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad but I've also played other games like Portal 2 without problems. Thinking it might be driver related I did a fresh install of windows but to no avail.

Half the time the game will crash randomly anywhere from 10 minutes of play to 4 hours giving a 0x000005 exception code. The other half of the time my computer will hang and BSOD giving me a different bccode almost every time. The most recent is 10007e and the only other one I remember is d1 which is one of the few that I've gotten multiple times.

The Windows Desktop Manager has also crashed twice but I'm not sure it that is related.

It was custom built a year ago and was problem free until about a month ago when the BSODs start. They stopped for a while but started again about a week or two ago.

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool&#63;
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 &#40;SP1&#41; for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi guys,

I got a few problems with the demo F.E.A.R. The first is that I have to disable sound for it to work. The other thing is when I am able to play the game, In the very beggining after the car drops me off in that little alley way, I seems to be dropped off behind the car? and I have no way of getting around the car and I can't seem to find anyway into the building? Any info??


A:F.E.A.R Demo stuck??

F.E.A.R. ** spoiler alert **

First, playing this game without sound is removing a big part of what makes it so good. They did a tremendous job using sound (and silence) to set a mood that gets you so on edge while playing that its hard to stay in your skin. My phone ringing (real one not one in game) has made me almost pi** myself while playing it.

**spoiler time**
After you are dropped off in the ally, move forward and go right to find a boarded over doorway. To get through, you need to break the three small boards that are over it. The other boards won't break. (use your melee instead of wasting ammo on them) Go through the door, look around until you find the unlocked door that's near a flaming barrel. Move up to it and open it with the use key (unless you changed the defaults its F), then head inside to find yourself in a dim storage area. Get used to breaking things in the enviroment, F.E.A.R. uses the havoc engine and a lot of things you aren't used to are interactive and can be moved or broken. In fact you will frequently have to break ventilation grates, windows, boards and so on to find a way out of a level ... or even to flank a big group of badies before they break up and flank you.

Bioshock has received many great reviews - the trailers/TV ads looks quite good... and its using the new Unreal3 Engine....

So far, I am not impressed with a game that can't even start.

First, I have downloaded two different versions of an Offical Demo from reputable websites... Each version is 1.9GB in size! For such a well funded game and lots of TV marketing (Unreal has never been on TV) - the first DEMO creates a crappy game setup folder like this:

<drive>:\BioShock_PC_Demo_FF\raid10\temp\manager\nfdekpwgaj\BioShock PC Demo

WHAT IS THIS GARBAGE?! Unprofessional... Anyways, near the end of the install, the Windows Installer window POPS up, showing various optional instructions you could choose - for the Installer - means nothing.... only OKAY button is available anyways. The game says its installed. Click on the ICON and wow, an error pops up saying:

''This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstall the application may fix this problem''

I redownloaded a version from the offical site, the installer is not 5 sub-folders deep, but the game still refuses to run.... a lot of people are having this same problem.

So after 4GB of Downloads, 4 installs... this "cool" game is useless.

Next... This game has severe DRM... you are allowed ONLY 2 installs of the game. After that, your disc that you paid $50 is dead. Well, you can UNINSTALL the game and regain your "credit" - b... Read more

I played through it once...didn't really like it.....played it once more and thought maybe I was a bit hard on it and it was OK.... and then uninstalled it.

What is even worse for this game is that there was no multiplayer at all and when you compare this to other demoes that came out recently..ET:QW and world in conflict .. well I was disappointed.

I've downloaded the Crysis demo about 4 times from different places.

Each time it finishes downloading I go through the installation process. Once the installation process is done and it says it was successful, I go to play the game but there is no shortcut. In fact there's no files on my hard drive (other than the download file). I've tried rebooting, with no luck. I can view the Add/Remove Programs list, and it's in there, but the game is nowhere to be found.

I understand that this post may be deleted because I am asking for a way around a password. I have had my posts delete on support websites already, but i thought it was worth another try.

I was wondering if there is anyway of bypassing passwords on windows vista? I just bought an ex-display PC, but for some reason, PC World hadnt reformatted so it was a clean start for me to use. So now im stuck with a PC that has a pc world demo account, that is passworded. I basically have no way to get onto the PC.

I tried pressing F8 on start up, and selecting the repair PC option, but I still need the password for the PC world account. I have contacted the support guys, but they are telling me to take it back to the store. I would like to find another way around it if I could before I have to take it back. (Its pretty hard for me to get there cos i cant drive)

Hello, my computer has been infected with malware. It started off with Google redirecting sites about a week ago. That has subsided, but when I woke up this morning, a program called SWP2009 demo was running, just like a rouge malware.
It pretends to find infected files that are not really there, and if I put the window box in the corner, I can use the computer. I tried running Malwarebytes, but a Windows Security alert pops up at the bottom of my screen saying "Application cannot be executed. The file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" Currently the message says the file wuauclt.exe is infected.
I cannot access the task manager long enough to do anything. When I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, the window flashes for a second, and then disappears. The same security message appears saying taskmgr.exe is infected.
Little yellow shields with exclaimation points collect on the bottom of the screen, whenever i scroll over them, they disappear. The shields then begin to recollect.
I'm new here and I would appreciate any help on this issue. Thanks!

Well I downloaded this twice due to problems the first time round, thinking that it may have been a bad download, I tried again, but the problems are still there

Crackling sound, like static behind units, no marching sounds, infact if I was honest the sounds in all are pretty lame, when you compare to Medieval 2 the sounds in that for gunpowder units were simply terrific, but in Empire they seem somewhat poor, anyone else tried the demo and feels the same?

I hope that this is only down to it being a demo, some on official forums have said that Steam did cock up some of the files, how true this is I don't know, again it is all just guessing from people, until official word comes out, we won't know, but to say I am disappointed is an understatement, such a shame as I had really high hopes for this game, I'll still buy it but hope that these things can be addressed.

Also no blood effects, and for a war game its poor, again maybe a demo thing? if they have gone down that route then its not good at all

But my main concerns are that and the sounds, long load times don't particularly bother me, but I also had a crash trying to play the Brandywine battle, so things are a bit touch and go with this

Just hope it gets sorted that's all, or that it is as I have said down to it being a demo, only thing that makes me doubt this, is I think the demo for Medieval 2 was much better and no problems, I am worried, anyone else?

Got the excact same problem myself. I actually made Dell come and repair my speakers because i thought they were the problem. Got the same problem with Medieval actually. Those static noices.

For some reason I've tried installing it on a few machines and it just error message; it just crashes. I'm still doing some troubleshooting but I'm wondering if anyone else has had problems with the demo. I downloaded it from here and I'm starting to wonder if it's just a bad file. The machines I'm installing on aren't exactly gaming rigs. One's a stock Dell Dimension 4600C and ones an Optiplex GX240. The minimum requirements are a 2.0 GHz single processor + 512 MB of ram which both machines have. I don't believe the demo requires a DirectX 10 card either...any suggestions?

edit: I got the file to work on a different machine, but I'm still open to suggestions on this PC.

If so, I can't help. Just wanted to confirm you knew there was a 10 out.
