Well, I'm reasonably pleased. The controls are much better - not perfect, but playable. I don't get that weird mouse deceleration issue that rendered Arma2 unplayable.

My system's quite old so poor performance and graphics are to be expected. It's still a disappointment but hey. It needs a good frame rate so IMHO it's worth switch off a few bells and whistles. As much as post-processed antialiasing sucks, it's a lot better than nothing and using the real antialiasing at just 2x kills my performance.

That mouse lag issue drove me nuts till I get used to playing ArmA. Then when I go to play Arma 2 again it re-drives me nuts.

For an Alpha, which to me Bohemia releases Retail products as alpha anyways... it's sounding really good.

Thank god for that sudden DayZ sales upheavel.
