Operation Flashpoint 2 Website Today, Movie Tomorrow

A preliminary Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising Website (thanks Moreno), sporting images, a link to the forums for the military shooter sequel, and a "video" option on the menu that brings up a window saying 07.11.08, strongly suggesting a movie will be released tomorrow.

I actually prefer to play ArmA as co-op not on the servers.
Tons of fun.

Don't play on public servers.

Ever.

This goes for every game out there. Play with people you know who have no reason to cheat.

I'm really hoping this will be a success as ArmA is showing its age and about the above mentionings of script-mongers.

Hope that HDR lighting is the real deal and not Photoshop tweaks.

Prolly not much hope for it.
Fits in the line with Blizzard trying to continue Diablo without Blizzard North, though.

Dmitri_M is at it again blindly defending a game.

I just tried playing Arma today with Battleye and signature checking turned on the server and the hackers ruined the game again.

No fun at all.

Unfortunately the last 2% is probably the most difficult bit to get right. If you rush the first 98%, you can't hope to get the thing polished or bug free, because the architecture will be completely shot by that point. The only thing to do with a turd is try and recoup the development costs, and make poor gamers suffer through the failure. An effort could be made to debug it, but I assure you, debugging a badly coded game can be as much work as developing it in the first place.

I just hope the controls wont be as sluggish and unresponsive like OFP1 and ArmA. The movement can still be very realistic without having to be sluggish and weird.

It will be interesting seeing OFP2 vs ArmA 2. I put my bets on OFP2 though.

Okay maybe I was a little harsh with calling Arma "almost unplayable". It depends on the server. When you find a stable server it is like finding a four leaf clover.

It always seems insane to me why a company does 98% of the hard and expensive work of making the game and then when it comes to the last 2% of patching bugs they fail. So close to having a good game except for the final polish. Insane.

The money to fix a game must be included in their budget. It should not be dependent on sales. It doesn't matter if 100 units or 100 million units sold - they owe it to their customers to have a working game.

Does the movie industry release a movie and then do re-shoots and fix problems if the opening weekend goes well?

Screenshots look good http://www.codemasters.co.uk/flashpoint2/index.php#/gallery/

EDIT: Probably from prerendered trailer :-(

Hope it is less buggy than Arma. Between the constant server crashes and script kiddies that are hacking the servers Arma is almost unplayable. It took one year to get a patch that has left the game with MASSIVE lag.

I have given up on BIS because they can't seem to make a game that isn't riddled with problems. Hopefully Opflash2 will retain some of the magic from Opflash 1 and some from Arma and not simply be a BF2 clone.
