  1. You could try installing Satchel's Dynamic Range soundpack...it replaces all weapon/player/vehicles sounds...it really does sound a lot better than the default OFP sounds smile.gif


  2. Come on, it's not like everyone who plays OFP or Resistance is going to start believing Russians are all evil/satanic/psychotic just because they are on the opposing side in a game...

    This should be particularly true of the OFP community, who seem to me to be more sensible and intelligent than a lot of other gamers out there...

    The fact that Russians are on the opposing side (although they weren't in Red Hammer) is probably due to the fact that the majority of the people who'll play it are from the "Western side" - you make the game to appeal to the most people you can...it's got nothing to do with BIS or anyone thinking the Ruskies are evil... smile.gif

    If there was a game out that involved the player going around and killing Aussies, I would play it if it was any good smile.gif

  4. Well by all means enlighten us as to how this addon is flawed...how is his knowledge of military equipment inferior to yours? Please give us some reliable sources of info as well...

    I think its very sad to rip into a guy's hard work, no matter what you think of it...

    Agreed smile.gif Damn sight better than Netscape Navigator now as well...


  8. AFAIK, choppers that can raise their landing gear, such as the Hind, never actually do so when flying slow or in combat situations...I think being able to raise the gear is only for long-range flight...I could be wrong tho smile.gif

    As for screwing up all the Russian stuff, there's no need to go off like a frog in a sock...there could be any number of reasons BIS didn't implement these, and in the end does it really make any difference to gameplay or fun?

    This is true...a good loader can do this in 3 seconds...

    This has been discussed over at OPFEC about AAronAsh's Realism Pack (in which he changed reload times)...I'll post what AAronAsh said...

    "The minimun standard is under 5 seconds, and I have done it in 3.5, but there are guys who do it faster... the loader hits the switch (describes loading process)... and does it all in under 3 seconds."

    -Quote from an interview with an M1A1 loader in the book "Abrams Company" by Hans & Eric Halberstadt

    In any case, a human loader can reload a shell much faster than an automatic loading system, basically cos the Ruskies thought that reload times wouldn't matter if they outnumbered the enemy 4 to 1 smile.gif

  12. The FBI HRT guy is prob the best unit model I've seen so far...I like the bulkier looking helmet/vest and the sidearm strapped to his leg...now all we need is some downtown crack houses to bust into smile.gif

    Also, how has the howitzer been tweaked? I haven't played with it much, so I haven't noticed anything different...

    The chaps over @ the OFP Taiwan Workshop have done it...along with a whole bunch of other retextured/remodelled weapons

    AFAIK, the Taiwan Workshop didn't release them, but they were deciphered by Steele to get them to work...

  14. I don't think you can hit/kill paratroopers with small arms, but I think you can collide with them (in a helicopter/plane) and destroy their parachute...

    Just as a side note, isn't it against the rules of the Geneva Convention to shoot paratroopers while they're in the air? Something about them not being able to defend themselves?


  15. Your men can be total morons at times...as in running directly into the line of fire etc. etc.

    That's why I prefer to play as another part of the squad, so that I don't get frustrated as all my men are mown down by a single enemy soldier.


  16. I would say some time after they release Resistance (on 21st June) - assuming they can be buggered releasing it at all smile.gif

    I suppose it depends on how well Resistance sells also...if it doesn't do too well, they may rethink releasing IL....

    Details of IL in any regard seem to be far and few between...


  17. "Now there can only be one Krusty in each territory. So I hope this works out. Tell me where you're from...."

    "Georgia", "Texas", "Brooklyn", "Russia", "New Hampshire", "Homer!"

    "Ok, we'll start off with the baggy...wuh? Those are supposed to be baggy pants! Baggy!"

    "When the wealthy dowager comes in, the parties over right? Wrong!" [throws pie at old woman who hits the wall]
