    Adjust stance down on W+S while moving?

    Feel free to do whatever you want, however i do wonder why you feel like it is easier to do W+S instead of CTRL+S? W+S is nearly impossible for me to do as my middle finger blocks my reach of the S key unless i turn my hand in a really weird angle. Did you lose your pinky finger?\ EDIT: Btw, in theory you may be able to detect the changes in animations and detect when you stopped in crouch stance, its not a real eventhandler but i think it could be done.
  4. Well, currently it cant eat that much FPS in the most used situation, scripts just run more slowly instead. :p
  5. While BI may be able to prevent hard crashes i doubt they will solve all potential multithreading issues in such a way that scripters cannot fuck it up. If we ever want to get some form of multithreading we will have to accept that it is going to be just as difficult as in any other situation.
  6. CBA may have some functions you want that can help you to write some type of async system: Link Though i am not sure what your end goal is. As far as i know you either run it unscheduled (in which case the simulation halts entirely until your function is done) or run it scheduled and run into the max 3ms per frame issue. There are no real threads for scripting in ArmA3, it seems like all our scripting commands end up in the main loop somewhere (no matter how you call them) and you will never max out more than 1 core with scripting alone. If you have some reaaaally CPU intensive calculations you could theoretically do those outside of the game and return the results, but only if you can first gather all the data you need from the game. Note: I may be wrong, it has been a while :)

    Laws of War DLC Feedback

    Ive mostly finished the campaign now and i thought it was really well done. It was well written and for the first time since OFP it sounded like the voice actors were all in the same room when they recorded the voices. I hope to see elements of this campaign return later in other BI products. ArmA3's campaign lacked good storytelling (they tried a little bit, and it worked but there wasn't much depth or fleshed out characters and it was mostly an excuse for 'go here and kill the baddies') and often it felt like Stratis was never more than a really big paintball map. ArmA2 was much more ambitious with its interaction with civilians and stuff but that campaign was so buggy and laggy it wasnt received that well, though i appreciated the effort. It does not have to be shooty all the the time, some downtime to develop characters and let the story breathe a little works great. Even after 15 years those who played OFP still remember the 'I spy with my little eye' scene where you are doing nothing but waiting. It was good, and i hope to see more grown-up stories like this in the future. Who knows, maybe even something like 'Spec Ops: The Line'? EDIT: I now remember that ArmA3 had that 'walking around on the base' between missions, which was alright and i liked that you could listen to some conversations, but apparently it didnt leave much of an impression. I guess it was too seperated from the rest of the game, and there wasnt really anything to do besides walking around empty landscape for some side missions, but those too lacked any story behind it. The Witcher 3 would be a good example of how to set those up properly.

    Low Sound Volume

    Have you checked if volume of the game process is set to a very low percentage in the windows volume mixer? To check: Start the game -> Alt+tab out of it -> right mouse button on the volume icon next to your clock -> 'Open volume mixer' I dont entirely understand your bit about battleeye, does it affect your sound volume?

    Forums Upgrade

    I had the exact same reaction. First i thought the forums were just broken, then i figured it out and wanted to yell at someone. In any case, making a forum button that does not bring you to a forum is a great way to keep new people away.

    Detecting PLAYER stances

    You could theoretically use a default bullet instead of the dummyBullet the addon provides, but you probably risk killing the unit you want to test and that gives you a whole bunch of healing/reviving stuff to do.

    Detecting PLAYER stances

    https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/stancewill return the stance of a given unit. Ignore that, i got lost in the forums. :)

    Profile reset when Arma 3 starts.

    Or just copy and pasting them from your old config. Should take less than a minute and its probably easier than figuring out whats causing this. (Could be related to having a space in your name, or something with file access rights, or something different, but its hard to tell)

    Battlefield 1

    That sounds interesting. How long is the campaign?
  14. Interesting. How are you going to solve the 'below sea level' problem? Just artificially raise the land or leave the Netherlands in its natural swampy state? :)
  15. Well, their little alien is pretty well known by know, so if you know enough to avoid reddit you know the logo. :)
  16. You are right, its in the banner of the ArmA subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/arma

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    Engagement range is a (per weapon IIRC) configuration parameter and can easily be changed by de devs or modders. Big changes don't happen very often though, because the increased amount of shooting and missing adds a whole bunch of needed ammo conservation stuff which the AI currently knows pretty much nothing about, and just making them shoot further could break a whole bunch of currently existing missions.
  18. Not for modders IIRC. I cant be bothered to check the ArmA3 files, but in ArmA2 we could identify these causes. I once made a thingy that replaced the ArmA3 danger fsm so it would tell me what the AI was doing to identify these types of bugs, but i didnt really learn anything new. (In general, pretend that they are actual people and you will do fine, though they are better at hearing and there are a few objects which are bugged and the AI kinda partially see through) EDIT: I also have some memories from years ago (ArmA2 times) where a dev once said that the AI requires visual confirmation to see if you are friendly or enemy before attacking, though ive no clue if that actually worked and if its still works like that in ArmA3, though may be worth testing.

    Bringing Everon to life in miniature.

    I love the 'half sunken in the ground' barn. EDIT: Also, maybe ask a mod to have this moved to offtopic, more people will see it there. :)

    Visual Upgrade – Feedback

    Overall i like it, though i do think that the amount of contrast and colors is a bit too much. It was too bland before, now its crossing over into Word of Warcraft territory.
  21. http://nannystateindex.org/netherlands/ I think they forgot to tell everyone... :huh:
  22. EDIT: Wrong topic, how did i even do this?
  23. It's in the registry (Open regedit and search for 'Bohemia', you will find it eventually), but i think its encrypted so you will not be able to enter whatever you find there into steam.
