ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead discussion thread

Recommended Posts

I have just found this video -
. What is it? It looks like arrowhead.

I don't think it is. Actually I know it isn't because of the description, its in Afghanistan and not Takistan, there are US Marines not US Soldiers, and various other reasons.

Holy crap. I say make a petition for them to change it to Eric's cover. Hot Damn!

Oh yeahh, thats just pure awesomeness....

Definitely going to print that out...screw those crappy publisher covers.... :p

.....The WIP code could be months older than the current state version and we wouldn't know it....

Well certainly it is, however just look like it was with all of BI previous games (hint: use the forums search in the several press coverage topics) .

It was the same Drama prior to Arma2 release... preview was released by Press and others, community complained the hell out of em, BIS and certain other "fanboys", said "ohh my god, its just WIP code, it will be much better in release version", etc etc...

Looking at the release version as it appeared, i could not spot any single difference to the older WIP-Code press-preview version, regarding the criticized parts of the game by the press/community.

And now, now we have patch beta 1.06 and the most major criticized point are still neither adressed nor fixed. :-)

So don't get your hopes up, that the allmighty "final" release version will have fixed all those oddities. I think many things will be again just fully or partially "miss-designed" and false "realized" in-game for whatever reasons.

If it is lack of knowledge, inability or monetary policy (VBS2), we will never get it told.

Oh look the whining response to a negative oppinion.

And i thought ARMA was about unscripted fun, not having to keep it on the rails, would be nice if it acted with a bit of intelligence otherwise, like not flying off into fire.

So you'd rather the AI be a pain in the ass and act of it's own accord, despite the mission parameters? The mission maker might have just placed a move waypoint into the village. To avoid closer engagements, he could have used a seek and destroy waypoint. That's the beauty of these games, you could do whatever you want.

AI combat in ArmA2 is unscripted but it has to follow mission parameters including movement, firing orders, skill levels, external scripts etc.

Or may be ACU with lots of dirts and sand on it? Both problem solved, with addictional impression that war is still dirty as it was 100 years ago?

Just curious, why do we have

Not confirmed Features:

Fully functional 3-D Real Time Editor

64bit .exe for more RAM Support

Ability to modify your Weapon àla MW2

Ability to shoot from the passenger seat

in the first post? when most of that is just a wishlist from someone.

Ability to modify your Weapon àla MW2 - was stated in a magazine preview of OA (can't remember exactly which one)

Ability to shoot from the passenger seat - was mentioned as a possible feature in a really early OA vid IIRC, not just in someone's wishlist.

The 3D editor will be the same as it is in ARMA2 at release, they may work on it after release and release it in DLC or something.

I have no idea where the 64bit.exe suggestion/unconfirmed feature came from...

I would like the AI to act of it own accord within the mission parameters. Like if tell a Bradely to move to a village it will realise its in a firefight and deal with the enemy before moving in, not just blindly drive to the waypoint no matter whats happening around it.

But this is ARMA, somethings never change.

This would require proper HUDs as well (ie, not the "painted on glass" sights) to keep things aligned... so I wouldn't be getting my hopes up.

It's not fully supported. You cannot roll your view in cockpit views, or move your head about the cockpit to look past a window frame etc.

Ok, not OA but one never knows. At least it is possible.
