    Arma Reforger/Arma4 VR Support

    Heh, forget the numbers on paper because it just doesn't reflect the reality of the real world perf. here...which can be problematic as it is, without even bringing VR into the equation. Sure, fps in Arma is ok as long as there are careful restrictions in place limiting the AI and vehicles spawning in at one time, but in larger more popular missions it's already a severe challenge on a desktop proc, never mind a mobile. I've spent the last 8-9 years modding DUWS for Arma3 and have learned a bit about the AI and it's performance issues. To say it's been frustrating is an understatement, but to take on that sort of a headache in VR on a mobile processor?... I'd have no will to, honestly (not in 2022/2023 anyway).

    Rush Reforged

    Now, make this work with the AI so it's PvE, instead of PvP 🙂

    Suggestion

    Another suggestion: - please offer a $30 discount off the final cost of Arma4, to all those who've purchased Arma Reforger. This is a serious suggestion, not meant to be sarcastic or mean. I don't see Reforger as a stand-alone retail game in it's current state. I see Reforger as a very raw & early Pre-alpha of Arma4 and feel that everyone who buys it should get a credit towards purchasing Arma4 when it finally releases. Thanks for considering this 👍
  4. Title says it all. How are things to progress while the lines of community communications are not accessible via an official public forum/s? When will the Reforger forum/s be opened?...or, is there no such immediate plan?

    Field of war [CTI] [SP/MP]

    Thanks for the tips, I will try again soon! **EDIT - by the way....is there a losing condition for Blufor, or can only Blufor win & end the mission? (im assuming the win condition is capturing all the red zones?)

    crCTI Kastenbier Edition

    Is this version currently working as of May, 2022? Does it require a dedi? Also, I didnt notice any explanation of how this version differs of it's features, etc....so can anyone tell me if this has AI commander and can be played by yourself where you recruit units into your group?

    Field of war [CTI] [SP/MP]

    How does one use the repair trait to repair a player vehicle? I've unlocked the trait but how does the vehicle I'm in actually get repaired? Also, as I go about the towns I notice it's mostly quiet, not much enemy around...whereas the old Warfare/CTI missions to have a few dozen bots in many of the towns...which starting param should i play with to adjust it so theres more enemy around the map generally speaking?

    Arma Reforger/Arma4 VR Support

    We understand...not sure you do VR though...do you understand that in order to get 4k in VR you need to proc 8K in reality? The minimum you would need right now is to proc 4k and that is just for the graphics having nothing to do with the heavy cpu loads that the terrain processing, AI and armored vehicles require. CPU's need to be stronger, VR needs to be able to handle much higher res, and arma needs to utilize more than 1 proc...VR needs another 5 years+ before it's ready for prime time...and this comes from a real VR fan with lots of time in MSFS VR, which is basically the limit of what you can do in vr right now (albeit kinda half-arsed). Opening it up makes no difference if it wont run. I've seen much less cpu intensive games that wont run well..its the norm right now...vr has made some nice headway in the last 5 years...but it needs at least another 5, if not longer really...it's just not powerful enough yet. Could you make an Arma version that was built for VR from the ground up? No I really dont think you could, right now, and still have it resemble the flatscreen gameplay and performance. Again, by the time you had it running well enough for ppl to stop yelling it would no longer resemble what we know as Arma.

    Arma Reforger/Arma4 VR Support

    I dont believe at this point in time you could actually get arma size maps and all it's assets (such as all the heavy armor vehicles) to run well enough in a headset all while looking good and at a proper fps rate. There would have to be severe limitations imposed, including things like graphics, AI, heavy vehicles as well as greatly diminished map sizes. I don't see it happening right now...but you cold probably make something like it but with tiny maps, different AI, and no tanks and reduced graphics, etc...but then it wouldnt really be arma anymore, IMO. I'd also like to see arma in VR one day, but i think that the vr tech needs more time to improve first. Arma is just too "deep" right now for the vr platforms.

    [Poll] ArmA Reforger / Arm4

    When they go back to their roots and release a title that includes the old COOP style Warfare/CTI missions from OFP/Arma1/Arma2 AND with vastly improved AI behavior, THEN I will support it and for any amount of money they want. But not now, not at this stage of what we're getting, and certainly not with PvP being it's main focus as it is. Just no.

    Why is Aiming So Easy

    Try playing some shooting games now in VR where aiming is closer to real life mechanics. As 2d/flatscreen games go, the Arma/OF series since 2001 has never been what I would call "easy" for aiming, shooting or certainly movement. Only my opinion of course, but I've never played another flatscreen shooter that was more difficult than this one. Keep in mind that I do NOT play on huge monitor sizes as most ppl do nowdays...so if you're playing on something thats 36+ inches...no wonder you find it easy 🙂 Anyway, ever since going over to VR a few months ago I haven't even thought about going back to flatscreen 2D shooters.
  13. @AZCoder Yes, it's working now though...earlier tonight it was complaining that too many had downloaded the file. So I guess there's a cap in place. They must have lifted the cap now.
  14. Is there anywhere to download this, other than the steam workshop? Your Google drive link is no longer valid
