ArmA II gamers got a nice Christmas present from Bohemia Interactive, as a series of updates for various iterations of the military shooter were released. Among the fixes for the title is an FXAA anti-aliasing mode for Operation Arrowhead as well as repairing the buggy single player missions. The patches also feature performance tweaks and bug fixes.
Arma 2's Bohemia Interactive has revealed a depressing figure of PC piracy, that there are "100 (failed) attempts" to play a pirated copy of Arma 2 online to every legitimate 3. This shows an "extremely widespread" piracy problem on PC, especially for a "mid-sized" PC focused studio like Bohemia. The stats are "undoubtedly much worse" for singe player.
UK broadcaster ITV is sorry for using a fan-made clip of Bohemia Interactive's Arma 2 in a documentary film about the past links between Gaddafi and the IRA. The mistake was made "during the editing process" when incorrect footage of a 1988 incident was "mistakenly included". Bohemia was shocked at the blunder.
