Try the tracers in dark setting (night) to check colours. I noticed a big change than on broad daylight.

That is strange, but I am no modder : I can tweak but I can't explain :(

You seem to have a good grip on what you are doing and a big interest in improving OS's WIPs! Maybe you will carry the torch?

Again, many thanks to OS for not only all his incredibly important contributions to the community but also in making these unfinished projects available as well (with permission, no less!)

I agree with this. During the day all of the tracers look white-ish, with a slight hint of red or green. At twilight or night they look fantastic.

Yup they don't work on thermals i did mess about trying to get them to work, but i gave up on them. Maybe someone can fix em, im done with em, they are free to be modded by whoever.

Early alpha one of those Barrett .50 weapon addons had visible bullets in thermal but didn't actually use tracers so it should be possible though I honestly don't know how.

I only do editing for my own pleasure. In fact, I've spent countless hours editing Blastcore for Arma2, and it was the same burden than OS has described : start and restart Arma to test effects... I think it's like a kind of drug that at one moment, breaks you.

For BC/A3, I tweaked to my taste the explosions of vehicle, grenades and RPG32/AT explosion, some bullet impacts... I never had any plan to share but if OS allows it now, who knows... and for sure I won't change this or that, it's more if you like it, keep it :)

To the people who's tracers are mostly white, try adding a bit of Depth of field and a bit of bloom. It added the colour back to my tracers.

I have bloom on, but DOF is a frame killer so its not an option for me. BTW after trying to change smth in the configs models and textures I've just gave up coz its one bad mess in there. Now I really understand why OS is leaving. From what I found - Green tracer model and/or texture is original (BI) and tracer config for 7.62 minigun doesn't change anything mb because of the bad model or texture.

I love how this looks! I have a silly question though: knowing this is based upon a similar addon for ArmA II, and I know ACE also has bullet tracers to...which one is closer to reality? I'm not someone all too familiar with ballistics and tracers, so any education on this topic would be entertaining for me.

Opticalsnare I have used this mod since it first came out and I'am happy to say good job :cool:

Just one issue that I'am having with the new version is that the AGM weapon overheating smoke appears below the barrel :(

I don't know if it is something that can be fixed by you or has to be done by the AGM Team :eek:

Anyway keep up the good work and best of luck for future updates ;)

Hey there!

Really loving the work you do, I just got one problem with the tracers. The tracers for MX rifles look beautifull, but minigun tracers look very pixilated. Tried changing everything in the graphics menu but nothing seems to work.

Anyone got the same problem or maybe found a fix?

Thanks in advance and merry christmas/happy holidays everyone!

Maybe DX10 only cards can´t properly handle OS tracer texture/luminacence (all set to high/ultra and no joy)... I have it too and had to disable Blastcore Tracers, which is a major bummer =/

When I use this addon/mod, my ingame screen is all blurry at the edges of the screen. Any quick fixes for this?

Green tracers of the wildcat and the CSAT light attack chopper ( don't remember its name) look dashed.

My tracers are a 1x dot with 4x dot on each corner, like a square. Bloody annoying cause in big firefights its just squares flying across the map. And that with the latest version as well.

Thats what mine to as well. Have you tried messing with the graphics settings?

Edit: Depth of Field does this, set to 0 and enjoy

Same problem here - I have created a Imgur Album with Screenshots :yay:

Link - Screenshots are taken with almost default Settings (only Depth of Field reduced to half):

-HDR is Standard

-Tried different Configurations of Antialiasing

-Tried diffenent Postprocessoptions

-Videocard Drivers are updated

-Gameversion is newest Stable

Edit:

Just testet all Air Vehicles. The Po-30 Orca Heli and the To 199 Neophron (CSAT CAS Plane) are also equipped with pixel Tracers.
