  1. I believe it's ridiculous that it hasn't been implemented yet. Likely a publisher contract condition. Hope this is rectified soon. Signed. - dRb

  3. I too hope that ACE2 will be modular. Most of the features in the original ACE mod were quite useful, but having them on all the time interfered with the flow of a mission or simply annoyed me (weather & injury systems especially). I can only hope that the end user will have more choices in the future. - dRb

    SLi Support (Or lack thereof!)

    Currently using nForce 182.50 and two GTX 260s I too have been experimenting with SLI in ArmA and have found that "max pre-rendered frames" must be set to three or more in order for it to work properly. When I had it set to one, my performance was not any better in SLI than single-card mode. However, once I pumped the number of pre-rendered frames, my performance soared a good 60-70%. Give it a try? - dRb

    patch 1.02 suggestions

    Aside from many of the things people have mentioned so far, I would very much like to see weapon switching while moving. I mean, if BIS has truly improved the system to allow for separate torso animations, then why not just merge the current "standing" weapon animations with the current leg movements? It's physically possible to make these sorts of movements in real life and now the engine supports it. So, why not? - dRb
  6. What driver version are you using? I am using 185.85 and seeing no increase in performance in SLI mode, regardless of whether I use AFR or SFR. - dRb
  7. Although 505 did mention a Steam release on Twitter, has the date for that release been confirmed? I would prefer to get the game from Steam than anywhere else... - dRb

    ARMA 2 and aircraft

    Seeing as I spent a significant portion of my time flying in both ArmA and OFP, I can completely agree with many of the complaints presented here. While I feel ArmA was a step in the right direction in most respects, the way in which it handled yaw was atrocious. Everytime I made a strafing run in a plane or helicopter, I could not help but cringe as my targeting reticule swung from one extreme to the other as I futilely tried to keep it on target. It was as if I was flying diagonally and it frustrated me to no end. I only hope that they change this one, minor flaw. - dRb

    Vehicle Entrance Animations?

    Any company must always balance the quality of its products and the time it invests to improve upon said quality. More time means more wages to pay and more technology to purchase. And, last time I checked, capital is a finite resource. Cut BIS some slack and don't contribute to rumors, - dRb
  10. But zoom, unlike many elements of the UI, can be avoided simply by not being used. I can understand why some may not want to use it, but adding it to the difficulty menu seems frivolous. Your second idea is much better. - dRb
  11. Technically, the first thing I will do is experiment with settings and control configurations. After that, though, it's offer to the editor to do some experimentation! - dRb

    GTA 4 / PC

    It seems incredibly alienating to expect everyone to have i7 chips and DDR3 just to play the game well. What kind of marketing strategy is that!? - dRb

    New ArmA II Pictures!

    In case none of you have seen the videos, they state in the upper-left corner that the game is still in an alpha state. So, if you notice something is a little off, please be patient. - dRb

    USA Politics Thread - *No gun debate*

    While I am an individual who favors socialistic ideals, I can wholeheartedly concede that there are persons who exploit the systems put in place by the government. I have personally known a few and they are bothersome. ("Woe is me! Let's crack open another cold one!") Still, I highly doubt they are the majority of the individuals out there. I know you Conservative folks will argue that such a belief is "wishful thinking" and "naive." However, I have spent years now buried in books on criminology, education, poverty, and race. I fail to see how it possibly could be all "made up." If it were, it would be one of the greatest lies in the history of mankind. (next to religion, that is! *zing*) I apologize for coming across so strongly before, but hearing someone say "race is no longer a problem" just touched the wrong nerve. Oh well. *-* Regarding personal freedoms, I believe there is a fine line between one man's personal freedom and another man's oppression. For every person on Earth to pursue his or her own goals is absolutely impossible. Sacrifice is, and always will be, necessary. Why must our views be dichotomous, anyway? Is there no balance? - dRb

    USA Politics Thread - *No gun debate*

    Because race is such an insignificant issue in America, right? [/sarcasm] Really, I voted for Obama because I believe he will bring about widespread changes to the economy that McCain would not have if he had been elected. Only with considerable government involvement can the impoverished ever rise out of their current position. Conservative beliefs of "self-determination" and "elbow grease" ring hollow in the hearts and minds of many minorities throughout the nation. How can one take on a suitable career when real estate costs force you to live in the inner city, when unemployment pushes 50% and the only position available is that of cashier at your local Burger King, and when your neighborhood's schools are woefully underfunded and understaffed. [source] Yes, the answer is to offer tax breaks to our country's leading corporations. It will all trickle down eventually... - dRb
