VILAS addons release thread

Recommended Posts

Donation sent. ;)

Sad to hear about your cat. It's infact one of my greatest fears, that one day one of little troublemakers doesn't come home anymore...

How close are you to your goal? Please keep us informed! I'd like to make the donation, but I'm curious as to how much you still need before I do.

i have got 185 USD, which is (by Paypal exchange rate 3.12 PLN per $) is 577 PLN, minus "transfer costs" which Paypal PL took already i have ca 550 for new VGA, so Nvidia 650GT 2 GB Ram is at hand when money reach bank account on Monday or Tuesday (this VGA costs in shops ca 520 PLN from Gigabyte)

also as i get more my PC parts will go to another community member who still plays OFP because he can't afford PC for Arma2 (from my city) , when i got in 2006 PC for Arma1, my parts (VGA and as far as i remember previous CPU AMD 3000+) went to another OFP community member, but of course if this community member will agree to take second hand parts (of course for free, i already asked him) , at the moment i can buy new VGA for PCI-Express slot

so it is 30% of needs, cause processor AM3, DDR3 and new mainboard for AM3 will cost at least 800 PLN (i believe that my power unit Corsair 550W will hold such rig, cause Corsair 550W is only 3 years old and it is good unit, so it will go to new PC, as well as cooling from Noctua or ArcticCooling will go , cause AM3 has the same bridge as AM2 and my cooler will work on AM3 too)

also when having new PC probably i will have to buy Win7 BOX (on West "RETAIL"?) which is in Polish edition : http://www.dobreprogramy.pl/Windows-OEM-nie-dla-zwyklych-uzytkownikow,Aktualnosc,15352.html cannot be OEM, cause if i set my PC myself for Micro$oft it is piracy (only buying whole PC is for them not-piracy, but making PC yourself with scredriver for them is according to new license policy)

http://www.skapiec.pl/site/cat/3006/comp/684684

i have no idea if "on the west" M$ has such policy that you cannot have OEM on modernised PC :(

but as again... i live in little oposite to normality and logic country, so ... i am not far :D

i must check "law" can i buy "OEM with mouse" as we had in past with XP (maybe since Vista it is impossible to buy OEM along with mouse)

i believe that box, Noctua, Corsair and rest of stuff can work with AM3 and VGA at ease (i mean power consumption, 95W EE procesor)

Hey Vilas,

I've just donated $100USD. I hope this brings you close enough to your new device. Please post with the new outstanding amount, just so we can know what else you need!

Like these other guys, I suggest you wait just a bit (like 2 weeks) for more donations. Then you can build a pc that will last you a lot longer.

Exactly. Try to aim for something that can play Arma3. ;)

yes, new PC is close :D

cause after changing my burned mobo Asus M2NESLI for old M2NE (to have the same chipset and set system and programs) Arma works for 5-10 minutes (tools, windows, rest works like before but Arma gets white screen and mouse/keyboard-crazy behavior, but for Oxygen now restored PC is enough, but not for playing longer), now I only wait for Paypal transfer, they write "2 work days", so maybe after tommorow I would have cash on account, shame that Polish Paypal takes ca. 8%, really, no cheat, exchange rate USD>PLN is different than bank-one, bank official exchange rate is 1 $=3.21 PLN , while Paypal exchange is 1$=3.12 PLN, also when i get 100 USD , Paypal takes 4.50 $ from it, really, only 95.40 are available and this 95.40 is transferred not as 306 PLN but as 297 PLN, i didn't know that Paypal is so taxing calling themselves "free" (+19% tax for Polish state cause i do not want "troubles" and i have to put it in P.I.T. form) , but if finally money will reach account , I can go to shop and take :

FX 6100 BOX ( 6 x 3.3GHZ, 14 MB cache , 95 W) or AMD X4 FX-4100 ( 3600 Mhz/3800 Mhz TURBO, 12MB cache, 95W ) BOX

ASUS M5A78L/USB 3.0

4/1333 DDR3

GTX 650 2 GB DDR5 GIGABYTE (it is new VGA, so it has to be good)

i think that this is muuuuch stronger configuration than this from 2006 (AMD 6000+ dual core, 2 GB DDR2 675MHz, GTS 250 1GB)

but to use memory also i am buying Win7, but how those OEM/Retail/BOX licenses look in your country ? i read on some webpages that on custom build PC you can't have OEM since Vista,

now I only keep my fingers crossed so money will go trough system (some people write on forums that it can be even week in their case),

for those above 4 parts I am almost armed now thanx to community (community made addons are on this forum, now there will be community made PC)

but of course if You suggest waiting, probably you are right, I was never IT-hardware specialist, for me it was "a box on table which i point button and it shows soldiers" (joking, but my knowledge about IT hardware is poor , i am just average quality modeler, there are here people 10 times more skilled, but I am stubborn and passionate, so thats why i produce and improve addons with each update, but I am not even half skilled like many people here, but I am twice more stubborn :D so my PC hardware knowledge is far below level it should be ( but also i know that the less Watt in CPU, the more quite it works, fan works slower and less loud, so probably 95W CPU is not bad idea ? )

but probably this belongs to Arma3/PC-related topics (so i can ask there as here are many IT specialists)

so of course i listen to more qualified people with better IT knowledge , cause my opinion can be fault due to my lack of IT-hardware knowledge

----------------------------

regarding addons:

for P85 and Balkanian mods needs (hope it match Svarun apc and Slovenian army soldiers ), BVP80 apc:

Great work on BVP80! It will come handy for Balkania wars soon ;)

Vilas, screw that config. Wait for a week or so, so more donations come trickling in.

Here's a config that I use and get 60-100fps on high & full HD:

It should cost you around 700-800 EUR tops.

- i7 3820 3,6 2011

- 16 GB Crucial Ballistix Elite XMP/TS DDR3 (4x4GB)

- closed water cooling system RTS2011LC

- Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 2011

- Corsair Carbide 500R white

- 120GB SSD for primary partition (and another SSD for ArmaWork folder heh)

i used PC related topic in Offtopic section , your PC rig for me sounds "even too much" "too NASA" , how much energy bills you pay for it ;) 1 kWh ?

for 800 Euros i would buy bigger LCD (currently i have 19'' 1280*1024 Samsung S-PVA 971P but when i open all tools in Oxygen it is not too much workspace) so i thought about better LCD than to have super-hiper-NASA PC ,

also is it worth to pay much more for Intel if AMD is much cheaper and only some weaker ?

paying 30% or 40% more for 10% more power ? economically inefficient ?

This has been a hotly debated topic in the PC world. Generally,

AMD - if you are on a budget

Intel - if you have a lot of money to spend

I'm an intel man myself, but intel is really pricey.

Shelled in with $15. I'll check later that the payment went through as there was a slight glitch of some sort on first try. Two euros of the sum come from my two small sons, as they too wanted to help "The nice man from Poland, who makes the SUPER police cars and fire trucks!" :) Build a good machine and keep doing what you do, as its greatly appreciated.

I used AMDs over all these years but honestly if i make a new PC it will have a i5, if you can afford it Vilas get one and in the end it saves you a good bit in regards to Power usage and the resulting costs.

GTX560 seems agood choice for A2 and A3, a 7870 also seems like a good option to me though, especially as its not that power hungry.

Btw i need a new PC too who wants to donate... hehe just kidding :p

Right now, I'd suggest avoiding an AMD/ATI graphics card. Their drivers are pretty crap and it takes forever for them to update. My personal experience hasn't been so great, and a friend even went back to an older graphics card because of constant crashes with his card; he RMA'd it and there was nothing wrong with the card itself, just the crappy drivers. :/

but please anyone check PC related topic in offtopic , plus does anyone have more ideas about weapons for Colonial Marines from other AvP games ?

i know that I44 has flamethrower, but probably it is tooooooooooooooo complicated for me, this disc-flying weapon from AvP is also impossible in this engine (as smart-weapon)

i was wondering about anti-human guided missles, is it possible to have it ? probably not cause there is IR tracking only against vehicles, how much AvP weapons were in AvP games ? i know that on console there was "M39 smg" which i am making, but anything more not present in PC versions that deserve to be in Armaversum?

also anyone please answer this:

I sent you a PM regarding this.

And the "disc-flying weapon", are you talking about the predator's disc or the Skeeter launcher from AvP Gold? If it's the latter, you can ignore it. It never made a whole lot of sense. :/
