    Air Combat..

    Sorry but the flying characteristics of ArmA aircraft are way too far out to please any flight sim guy. What Plaintiff said is totally correct. Aeroplanes do the most unrealistic things. I wouldn't bother if I were you. Unless you got a really broad opinion of what a flight simulator is.

    Fastroping Addons Thread

    Have any of you guys thought of having a jungle penetrator script or addon? Opposite of the fast rope, basically just a guy hanging on a rope and being hauled up?

    Maximum Frame Rate?

    Maximum Frame Rate?

    No, I messed up in my previous post. It maxes out in game at 30. In the editor, zoomed right in it's 60. I amended my first post.

    Maximum Frame Rate?

    Seems my monitor can only go as high as 60Hz. May need to re-invest.

    Maximum Frame Rate?

    Yeah refresh is set to 60 and in the NVidia Control panel Vsync is on. What should I change it to in the config?

    Maximum Frame Rate?

    No matter what I do I can't get over 30 FPS. I tried zooming into a white space on the map and 60 is the maximum. I tried on many different settings. Is there a maximum frame rate? My game doesn't play really really slowly.

    Hardware and settings for ArmA

    I have a 1680x1050 flat screen monitor and for ages I have had really really poor performance. Due to NVidia not letting me pilbox ArmA. Today I tried playing in window mode and I found that the game looked better and ran smoother. Only touble is that now I can hardly see anything. Can I make the window bigger? I tried changing the perameters in the launcher but this only affected the size of the screen inside the window and not the window it's self.

    To ArmA Developpers: aiming system

    That is so true. I find aiming is almost impossible with anything but lowest settings.

    The Unsung Vietnam war MOD

    Having a hand held NVG device is a cop out. Also, NODs was not rare at all. Here is a bit of research I did for a different Nam group. Here's the info on Night Vision or NOD (Night Observation Device) in SEA. By the mid-1960's, scientists and engineers at Night Vision fielded the first generation of passive night vision devices for U.S. troops, including a Small Starlight Scope that served as a rifle-mounted sight or as a handheld viewer. Realizing these systems were far from perfected, Night Vision research personnel came to refer to the development of this early equipment as the First Generation Image Intensifier Program. Scientists and engineers would go on to improve upon this technology to deliver a second and third generation of night vision equipment. http://www.simhq.com/_air6/images/air_232a_015.jpg The first generation Small Starlight Scope was soon put to practical use in the field. With the United States' growing involvement in Vietnam, U.S. soldiers quickly recognized that they faced an enemy that relied on the cover of darkness to conduct its maneuvers and offensive operations. In 1964, the U.S. Army issued night vision equipment to the troops in Vietnam. The Vietnam War proved to be an important stage in the development of night vision systems. There were no "goggles" like today and instead Gen I scopes were mounted on rifles as in the following images. http://ugca.org/07jan/nightpvs2.jpg AN/PVS-2 Night Vision Sight “Starlight Scope†(1st Generation) used on M14 Rifle (circa 1967-75) Type:  Passive “starlight†scope intensifying ambient light Weight: 6 pounds complete with battery Effective range: same as with conventional sights This is a bigger picture of a soldier in country showing the scale of a Gen I scope. The Gen I scopes were in wide usage by 1969. http://bp1.blogger.com/_IQgkr1....0+j.jpg In late 1969 the US started the Nighthawk project which utilised some estimated 14 the UH-1H huey force to conduct night missions armed with a Starlight scope, a large Xenon searchlight and a mounted minigun. Some models also had a mounted .50 poking out the door. http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/uh1h-001.jpg The empty slot for the NOD can be seen above the Xenon searchlight. http://www.vhpamuseum.org/weapons/images/nighthawk.JPG The NOD is clearly visible here. Note that the minigun is mounted away from the door gunner position. A better picture of the whole Nighthawk system can be seen on this Firefly squardron bird. http://www.vhpamuseum.org/aircraft/images/firefly.jpg http://www.atroop412cav.com/tools/images/starlight_large.jpg A better indidcation of the scale of the NOD. This one seems to be mounted on a watchtower. The following are pictures of the large mounted NOD optics. Sorry but I couldn't find any of the rifle mounted optics. http://www.vhpamuseum.org/aircraft/images/mohawk.jpg http://www.vhpamuseum.org/Places/images/marble.jpg Listening to a Marine Sniper who served in Vietnam it becomes evident that NODs were very common amongst US forces.
