  1. I like the way the helicopters are controlled, not to hard, but not to easy either. They could indeed remove the eject, however giving in account that you can survive a helicopter crash. Normally the blades would start to turn around from the falling of the chopper, so when it hits the ground, he isn't going to fast(can even land undamaged from time to time and That's what I learned, correct me if wrong) they could make the choppers more complicated, for example all the buttons etc like in chopper sims, this could add to the gameplay==> less pilots, so people with skill fly, and not noobs who fall to the ground after a minute because they are goinging to fast... But then they should do that to every vehicle, to much work/complicated, and not all people would like that because of the complexity. This would be in real life, so when you capture a tank, you don't know how to control it, so you cannot use it, or you have to learn it.

    release over steam

    no, because: -I have a downloadlimit( nooooo, not again an update of 300 Mb :s) -I don't like the way steam works(I don't want it to run when I play the game and log things) -You have to know the program before you can disable things, why isn't it standard disabled? -It's yet another program you have to install(I got loads already...) -I prefer having a CD in case my emailadress get's hacked/disabled. -I don't want to pay extra taxes like on steam(buy now at 19.99$!!!!, click on it, taxes additional 5$,wtf...) -I don't want it to download things(you know, steam downloads around 1.7Mb each session without asking for anything,( I wonder what that is) -I hate the install that pops-up after each reboot pushing next, next,next, finish, play the game each time after I rebooted(I wonder why that is) There is more, but I need to think about that, anyway, in my opinion:

    Radeon Vs. Geforce

    Well Radeon Vs Geforce is a neverending battle untill they change the name , so you better called the thread ATI vs NVIDIA. Well ATI has the best performance, their drivers are indeed not that good, but the good thing is with driverupdates they can increase performance increadibly well(their last new graphic cards I mean) Nvidia is indeed a bit better in opengl, so also better for linuxusers. I personally had some problems with my ati on various linux distributions, but once it works, it works well luckely. Anyway in my opinion, the difference is minimal, and will stay minimal. You get about the same for the same price. I felt ATI is slighty cheaper for a bit more of performance. but this is neglictable for normal computerusers. So, in short, both have their plusses and minusses. It's more personnal taste that matters these days

    Addon handling in Arma

    Perhaps this is the chance of standardizing addons. With that I mean standarized armor and damage. Like that we could use the addons for different mods etc, spares some work for some people and it will allow balanced addons. Just an idea, of course, this is only possible if addonmakers agree with this

    release over steam

    sure, but you would have it as fast if you would go to a store. The time you would download it. steam doesn't go over speeds of 250Kb/s,average I have is 50kb/s. Steam is in my opinion a lazy way of releasing a game, so people don't have to get to the stores. Also an easy way of controlling people. How often they play, what they play etc... I think many people are forgetting that aspect. Releasing it through steam still means they have to have a publisher, for advertising and normal packages, which I believe the OFP community quite likes as it is. Everybody would like to have Arma as fast as possible, but steam isn't necessary faster, as they would still release it together with the normal version.

    release over steam

    Why can't they use bittorent, it's free and better then steam

    ArmA release date leaked out?

    and after with the money they got...

    ArmA release date leaked out?

    yes, either about it being released, or a new releasedate:p Who knows, perhaps they are keeping it for the 6th of december, for santaclaus

    ArmA release date leaked out?

    I disagree to, if the community wouldn't need BIS, BIS wouldn't have released all the patches, so alot more to worry about , and also, without BIS, there wouldn't even have been a comuninty

    ArmA release date leaked out?

    lol, they don't have to work on that, microsoft has to work on that, they don't even have an xbox 360, and it's microsoft's problem to be backward compatible

    Release Thread 2

    well, note the smilie. it can mean something or nothing at all, bit I always think positive , so I think that they both locked that thread, and the comments on the ArMa site for a reason... of course, feel free to think otherwise but I think(and hope ) it gets in the shops before
  12. Kode

    Release Thread 2

    I think you are forgetting about the costs to put it on steam(not owned by BIS, and if they have to make one...). Valve won't host it for free , if you know what amount of money they put in it... Personally, I don't like steam, Belgians have a downloadlimit, so very annoying to download large things. It's a midbudget game normally, so it won't cost too much, so they won't put anything new in releasing the game in a different way, it would be too expensive.

    JIP

    I wonder if they also added the possibility to download needed addons from the server, this would be nice so you don't have to look for the addons. Of course, this should be optional for the servers.

    Release Thread 2

    Just to say that the comments on the main site www.armedassault.com have been disabled, so I think they are goin to announce something soon  unless that it is because of the negative comments, possible too

    JIP

    there are no things like rounds, it's not counterstrike Join in progress means you can join in anytime, and if you are dead, you are just dead till you respawn. I hope they don't allow to spectate, as it would ruin a part of MP...

    cross hair

    the crosshair just depends on the view you are in, and focusses from a different angle, therefor, I made a small pic (very fast made ) the crosshair is the most accurate one, 1D is very accurate aswell, but as you can see, for 3D you always have to shoot a bit higher to hit the target, just because the crosshair is a bit higher. correct me if I'm wrong

    cross hair

    If you lay down it won't move much, but it will always move, like in real, try to point a laser at the same spot from 10 meters, you will certainly won't be able to do so

    Armed Assault - should the name be changed?

    Do you really have to repeat this in every thread? You are just a pessimist, go get another game and stop posting things on this forum, as there is nothing positive coming out of your fingers. Everything you post is negative. edit, thanks for the correction

    Release....

    and who is saying that they won't release it in Q4 of this year? You got nothing to stand on. You are telling bullshit. The game can come out in december easely. So their is no reason they have to tell that... Yes they aren't giving information away, but did you even consider they perhaps cannot tell anything? Gamecontracts are quite complicated... If you run your own business, you know you cannot break a contract that easely...

    Advice on new pc/components

    The problem is that hardware also depends of the experience and personal taste of people. Like the fight between ATI and NVIDIA & intel and AMD which is better? hard to tell, then ati, the nvidia, it changes all the time, even driverupdates can add to performance as proven by ATI's latest graphich cards. P.S.: PCI-Xpress is indeed getting better then AGP. But this only evolves slowly. With slower cards, of AGP and PCI-Xpress, it doesn't makes much of a difference, but with the faster cards, they can take advantage of the higher transfer speed. So PCI-Xpress is getting better and will be used for quite some time, as the limit hasn't been reached for a long time. Same goes for PCI-express 1x , it will take a longer time to be replaced as the limits of normal PCI were getting closer, they started thinking at PCI-express 1x. It's because of the tranferspeed that ISA has been replaced by PCI. ANd wel, in another 8 years, they'll probably have something new again.

    Advice on new pc/components

    just to add a comment on DaSquade's post, graphics card memory doesn't matter too much, because it doesn't even use all the memory, so 512 Mb of memory would just be silly . It's the graphic processor that is important, but that's mostly not the thing people look at, ooooh 512 Mb!!, that must be a good one, and the take it. Like the Mhz of processors, intel:3.6 Ghz, AMD: 2.2Ghz, intel must be better...(NOT) 64bit procesoors are taking over the world, but not even 1% uses the 64 bit features, everybody still runs the 32 bit, as not everything has been converted yet. The difference between 32 bit and 64 bit? Almost not existend for the moment. It enables you to put more RAM(16Gb instead of 4Gb), and well, if 64bit software is made, you get the benefits of it, as it is a bit faster(if coded well). Everything is about sales. Same goes for dual core, almost no software is written for it, you won't get the benefits of it, as you would barely use the second one... but heck, 2 cores in 1 processor, that is a 100% win (NOT)

    specs

    nothing is told by BIS, wait for the game to go gold before asking questions, they won't answer it anyway, probably getting locked I hope...

    Armed Assault or Operation Flashpoint 2?

    that article and pics are about game2, not AA
  24. Kode

    Armed Assault or Operation Flashpoint 2?

    no, game 2 won't be AA. The biggest difference is I think the dynamic campaign they are wanting to create. This would be awesome , every kill/death would change the borders,etc... but it is a long wait, a couple of years

    Advice on new pc/components

    The intel is not a physical dual core processor, it provides two execution cores in one physical processor allowing the platform to do more in less time. (hyperthreading) But then again, dual core is completely useless if the software isn't using it...(they just want to get sales) You are wrong with the ram though, as the system, you can have more ram, with 64 bit you can have 16Gb of ram instead of 4Gb with 32 bit. I haven't seen any 2048 rams though. Oh, and I hope you have some decent speakers with that soundcard, otherwise it's rather useless:p
