- Improved AI driving skills
- Lowered enemy AI skills for regular and recruit difficulty levels
- Improved Micro AI tactics, attack in pairs, path limiting to avoid passing through walls
- Fixed multiplayer session NAT negotiation
- Improved game stability (various crash opportunities fixed)
- Multiple save slots supported
- Improved terrain shape beyond map borders
- Various campaign and localization fixes and improvements
- Modules (F7) support added in the Mission Editor
- Added option to disable various post-process effects (bloom, blur etc.)

I just don't get it, they keep releasing bug filled games, one after another, people keep buying them, even though the previous game is a mess, and turn around and tell them 'good job'.

There is a huge collection of rabid fanboys that think BIS can do absolutely no wrong. I know it sounds like a cliche but it is so true. I assume many players were young when Operation Flashpoint came out and now that they are older people feel nostalgic towards BIS.

ARMA1 still is not working properly. It takes BIS 6 months to a year to release a buggy patch that does more harm than good to make the game stable. They run open beta tests on patches in the community and then completely ignore the results and release final versions of the patch with new UNTESTED features that takes them another year to fix!

There are tons of people who work on missions and addons and never actually seem to play the game. All they really are in love with is making things for Arma. What is amazing is almost none of these creations are used by the community. Only a tiny fraction ever get used.

Arma1 is abandoned and the fanboys line up to be screwed again by BIS.
