  1. US Army goes with CryEngine 3 for Military Simulator

    Read more @ http://gaming.operationreality.org/2011/05/28/us-army-goes-with-cryengine3-military-simulator/

    Sounds like BIS is going to really need to step it up a few notches in face of such competition (in particular with regards to their Real Virtuality engine when compared with an essentially free and open Cryengine 3 - that's difficult to rival)! Anyways hopefully that will be a good thing for us ARMA players! ;)

    Not to mention both those companies that won the contract are based in Orlando Florida, and if i'm not mistaken BIS just opened up an office recently in Orlando did they not? I'm curious if BIS was competing against Real Time Immersive and Intelligent Decisions for this particular contract or not? Did you lose out or did you not bid at all? If not, why not? $57 million USD is a lot of cash for this type of thing! Dayum! :p

  2. Not sure if this is a first for Bohemia Interactive to get coverage in such a large mainstream publication like the New York Times or why nobody has posted this on here yet but I figured such publicity can only be good for the BIS community at large. We've done a little blog piece on this article and included all appropriate official links over @


    Congrats BIS! You guys seem to keep going from strength to strength and are really starting to get noticed out there! :cool:

    PS - if this is posted in the wrong forum section obviously feel free to move it.

    See you on 26th of March soldiers!

    NOTE: If anyone requires any assistance in setting up ArmA2:OA to run in Combined Operations configuration or downloading and installing the required add-ons, Operation Reality staff are available in ORC TeamSpeak before this event.

    It is highly encouraged for participants of this event to hop on the ORC Teamspeak3 / game servers well before hand to make sure they have everything in order so they are fully prepared for this gaming session.

  5. Congratulations to the winners! (and of course to all the nominees as well) :bounce3:

    I tend to agree though with what most people are saying here that there may need to be some sort of reforming of the categories/voting procedure for next year though or you'll likely just keep getting the exact same people/groups being nominated and winning year after year after year which currently seems to be the case. It risks making the community feel narrower than it is and people may start to lose interest or question the whole relevance of community "awards" at large. Just something you need to watch out for imho.

    Anyways, good job to everyone, keep up the good work all, was good fun, and thanks to everyone who voted for ORC, we appreciate it! :cool:
