Absolutely underused :dozingoff:

:wink:

I am still quite surprised by theories about Prince of Arma's pic, or lack thereof. I had hoped for some near to real guesses what could it mean to player community, what are we going to show and stuff :icon_twisted:

It seems that we are crunching in vain. No moar work on A3 'till Prince of Arma's going to be praised and held on hands on E3, abandon (pa)troll routes, lads :icon_twisted:

You can crunch wherever you want (even in Wain, Germany), as long as it's not done in vain. ;)

Well, there is an enigma behind this pic too?

Probably nothing realted to the Alpha since it is a series of Showcases and one Campaign Mission, whereas the Alpha will be focous on MP (or not.... OO).

"Deterrence theory, a theory of war, especially regarding nuclear weapons"

By my conclusion I may say: I am not good at those things.

OK homeboy... it's on:

  • Firing range: Basic weapon familiarization
  • Firing drills: Introduction to new animations that influence firefights a.k.a stances,etc
  • Weapon pool: Weapon show n' tell . The mystery rifle mystery will end.

Showcase:

  • Infantry: Awesome new tactical lookin infantry showcase ( maybe also the customization system)
  • Diving: Even more creepy female stalking
  • Helicopters: ToH FM says what what!
  • Supports: There be some towing and hauling ahead of us. Beer HEMTT not included.
  • Vehicle: Handling and damage model :icon_twisted:
  • Night-ops: Hot NVG and chem light action. May include helmet mounted strobe lights.
  • Deterrence: Epic music and military acronyms

Damn son, you just got served! *grabs and shakes crotch area while holding his left arm high like a tool*

Hmm we got

  • New leaning stance
  • Proper use of bumpmaps
  • empty holster?
  • Fire not lighting up the whole surroundings
  • New fire particles?
  • A weapon with a bipod
  • Incredibly awesome tactical
    (Joris, don't)
  • A big room
    You mean to say there is more?!

Mighty ambitious of them. those are pretty much the same "requirements" as a2... BI must have really improved performance. We are getting better graphics, and hopefuly improved ai and it will still run on thes requirements... awesome. I hope this is the truth. Means I won't have to upgrade to play the alpha (even if only the bare minimum) and I have more time/money to build my super computer.

Dual Core 2.4Ghz?!? 2GB RAM? Can that be possible?

I think DX 11 + PhysX + various other engine optimizations probably allow much better use of hardware resources than Arma 2. I'm still surprised the minimum requirements aren't higher though. Keep in mind more optimizations are probably going to be done both before and after release.

Note: MINIMUM specs, to just run the game at god knows what low settings.

Beware those system specs are Minimal to Run the game and not to play smooth

am sure you will need a beast to run it on high settings
