History

  • Category set to Mission
  • Status changed from New to Assigned
  • I am using set to OA only

Does someone else have it too?

Is your game language English?

Updated by Mushik over 4 years ago

Yes, my game language is english. (But german Windows)
More detail: 1st mission ("PMC00") has that problem. the next campaign missions (PMC01,02,03,...) do not have that problem. There is correct text in the notes.

Maybe it´s a feature? After all, it seems that nuke blew up in the area, guess it would mess up with the computer :-D

I didn't see any corruption, set to English too.

One more thing:
I use the DVD UK versions of AA2 and of OA. Patches always from the BI site www.arma2.com. DLC "BAF" and "PMC" from gamersgate.com.
Are there language dependend versions of PMC? (I think I saw a german installer GUI for the DLC, but cannot remember. All text in the game is english)
(I just restarted mission PMC00 - still the same issue)

It seems PMC is English only anyway.
It might be intentional though as noted above.

Updated by Mushik over 4 years ago

"... as noted above" ? You mean Raptorkos comment? I think, thats just a bad joke!
It looks to me, like the text contains several technical error messages concerning content parsing. And "VRANA_DB_Error" - doesn't it sounds czech?
So it is probably the game engine, but no intentional game content.

Last thing I did, was patch AA2/OA/BAF to 1.56 and then installed the PMC-DLC

As designed. After the explosion your data in the PDA were lost thus unreadable.

Updated by Mushik over 4 years ago

Thanks for the answer!
Strange, that Fireball did not report any corruption.

In my personal opinion, this particular story feature is misleading and not well designed. The video phone call in the PDA is working, but the stored text should be corrupted? A mix of readable text and corrupted garbage would have been better here.
Other texts are still completely readable. Not consistent and confusing!

But anyway, thanks for the clarification!
