  1. Proper 3D audio is objectively more accurate than virtual surround is. What level of accuracy is sufficient for Arma or any other game is subjective.

    Oculus Rift & Arma 3?

    Haven't they been doing this kind of stuff in VBS for years? The military has different needs than the consumer market. I really wouldn't expect to see official VR support in Arma until or unless BIS is confident that they can get every aspect of the game to work the way they want it to in VR.

    This Game is Violent.....

    I don't really care whether there is a torture mod or not, but the surely you understand that there is a pretty big difference between those two scenarios. Cluster bombs are not designed to lay waste to civilian settlements and they were not included in the game for that purpose. That cluster bombs can be used to do a bad thing is incidental. A torture mod is specifically designed and only useful for doing bad things. As long as you accept that torture is bad and wrong, anyway. Also, didn't the creator of that mod decide to take it down himself before the thread was locked? Edit: And for the people who are upset about the "moral outrage" over this mod: Do you actually want to torture people in Arma or are you just mad that people are mad about people wanting to torture people in Arma?

    I haven't really looked into it but I really doubt that the brightness of light sources is configured on a per map basis (I guess maybe except for light poles and stuff). I would imagine that the brightness of a light source is determined in the config for the light source.
  6. The Mk14 is an M14, the Navid is an HK121, the SPMG is a General Dynamics LWMMG, the Mk1 EMR is a Sig 556 DMR chambered in 7.62 NATO. First of all, I am almost positive that previous versions of ACE did not factor the rotation of the earth into ballistics calculations. Everything else is still in Arma 3 and ACE 3.
  7. How long do the batteries on these devices typically last? I suspect that in most cases it would be so long as to be pointless to limit it. And if battery lifetimes are artificially limited then people are going to be mad.

    It's entirely reasonable. BIS seems to have (rightfully) learned not to promise anything until it's either finished or very near finished.
  9. I'm curious why you think FMOD will have an effect on cyclic rates in Arma. As far as I am aware, the fire rate of weapons in Arma is tied to frame rate, not the sound engine. Do you have some reason to believe that the sound engine is somehow negatively effecting fire rates in Arma?

    You can get away with less than 90, but asynchronous time warp will start introducing artifacts, such as those shown in this video. Personally, I'd be more concerned about locomotion. Using vehicles in VR will probably be okay for a lot of people, but I suspect that traditional locomotion with a mouse and keyboard for infantry play is likely to make a majority of users feel pretty sick.

    Steam > Arma 3 > Properties > Betas and enter the access code Arma3Legacy158 I don't think this is likely to happen and thanking them in advance is probably not going to trick them into doing it.

    Serious question: How much do actual chemlights illuminate the environment?

    Yeah, I just retested and shadows do pretty much disappear at overcast levels above .6 or so and also sometimes at night. That's not great.

    I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with lighting and is just a transparency issue with the gate texture. It's an issue that was present before the patch, although I don't know if it was present under those specfic circumstances. Edit: Also vehicles have shadows for me. The only way I can get them to not have shadows is by disabling shadows. Are you sure you have shadows turned on?

    It's because that's how aperture works. The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light passes to hit the sensor (or film). A wider aperture (in Arma 3 this is setting a lower number) allows more light into the camera and creates a brighter image. A smaller aperture (higher numbers in Arma) allows less light into the camera and creates a dimmer image. It's like a dilating pupil. When it is dark out your pupils dilate to allow more light in. When it's bright your pupils constrict to limit the amount of light that gets in. What you were doing in this example was basically walking around at night with super constricted pupils, which is why it was so dark that everything appeared black. You need to set the adjust the aperture for the current light level. By the way, this is why I posted earlier that I didn't think messing with the aperture through scripting was a viable solution. The game is supposed to automatically adjust the aperture for current light level, but by using the scripting command you are bypassing this.

    Yeah I might retract my statement. Nights lit by a full moon look pretty okay.

    Who are you arguing with? Pretty much everyone agrees that night is too dark.

    How often are you going to keep posting about an issue the devs have already said they are going to look at. It seems like every one of your posts is about how you don't like the way night looks. The devs have acknowledged your issue. You have been heard. Although I have to say, your videos don't look very much like night to me. The nights in your videos are really bright.

    It looks like people are getting really aggressive with the aperture command some of these screenshots look really underexposed or overexposed. But there does appear to be some discrepancy between the way objects and terrain are lit. Perhaps it has to do with material settings?

    Cool. But now you're just arguing about personal preferences and not the objective qualities of the patch, which is pointless since everyone has their own individual taste and expecting BI to cater to yours specifically is unrealistic at best. I mean, I could say I prefer a cartoony TF2 look over an attempt at realism, but who cares? I'm not the art director for Arma 3 and I don't get to determine the art style of the game.

    In what way were the headlights in OFP more advanced? Brightness? Guys, this is crazy. You can't judge the quality of a rendering technology by the brightness of headlights. I'm sure it's not the case, but it really seems like there are a lot of people posting in this thread who really don't understand what they are looking at. It's probably just people being absurdly hyperbolic, though.

    You also pay for movies. That doesn't mean you can tell directors and writers how they should end. I mean, the game is being actively developed and player feedback is important, but at the end of the day it's still the developers' game.

    I doubt it. The aperture is adjusted dynamically based on light levels and desired exposure value. edit: You could do what defunkt suggested above, but it would only look right for a given range of light levels. Setting the aperture to 140 will make day look okay, but night will be literally completely black.

    You think BIS should keep assets from finished games that are almost 10 years old up to date? You realize that no one does this, right (because it's crazy)?
