    Could BIS please implement "peek around corner"?

    I big time support the addition for this feature add. Third-person view is more for the Third-person lovers. Some admins want to disable this feature to add more of a realism feeling. Most of agree with disabling but do since there is not an ability to peak around the corner while staying 90% hidden, they objected to the disabling of the third-person view. I disagree with peaking without the head and gun being exposed -- not realistic. Â Ghost Recon(GR) allows you to fire while peaking. Return to Castle Wolfenstien(RtCW) does not allow you to fire while peaking. I prefer and the GR method. The detailed comparisons always give the advantage to GR's and Rouge Spear(RS)' regarding this missing feature in OFP. This would be an awesome feature.

    Ded. Server 1.30 Does Not Release Memory

    1.40 I thought was better but evidence shows it does not *release* the memory when all users log out. My DS is currently sitting at 140MB idle with no one logged in. When I started days ago it started out with 30MB used. I am going away for 3 days. It will be interesting to see what happens. Will the 140mb of memory go up, down or stay the same. BTW, Merry Christmas! ViperMaul
  3. I am not saying Memory Leak. I am just saying that after the game plays and then people log off the memory continues to go upwards. It started at about 10mb (if my memory serves me) After two days it at 132 mb One time period I seen it up to 192mb after 3 days of usage before I lost power. Can anyone reproduce this?? I'm using WinXP Pro. ViperMaul

    OFP in surround sound ?

    </span><table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1"><tr><td>Quote </td></tr><tr><td id="QUOTE">Quote: from SpaceAlex on 12:54 am on Dec. 18, 2001 I have 5.1 with subwoofer (cambridge Sound Works) and OFP sound is just great. If u don't have the latest drivers Radio voice will be strange and as Suma said, footsteps will be loud like ####. <span id='postcolor'> Footsteps loud as ####. This is what I'm getting. And I have the latest Sound Blaster Drivers for XP. However I have the Sound Blaster Live version (not the 5.1) Is there a workaround? I rely big time on sound and I'm starting to get killed out there.

This bug caused memory leak and it will be fixed in next patch. After fixing this bug no memory leak has been observed so for. <span id='postcolor'> THANKS Suma! I like your responsiveness. I also think it is comical that my request for disabling the sound in the Ded. Server lead to a bug which annoyed me. LOL Thanks So much!! BTW - I do not think the Email Notifications (a feature on this forum) are going out. I never get them. I hope you can fix them.

    Ded. Server 1.30 Does Not Release Memory

    Cpt Gamer, I haven't used cacheman but I am using MemTurbo II (www.memturbo.com) which I believe does the same thing. Thanks for your input. ViperMaul (Edited by ViperMaul at 10:54 am on Dec. 18, 2001)

    Ded. Server 1.30 Does Not Release Memory

    Cpt Gamer, I agree that the ammount of memory is not unusual that is not my point at all. It is a great game and great games take memory. Regardless if my figures are wrong. Â The point is, any program should release memory when it is done with it. Surely you would agree with that. Â I know Suma would. Now my only workaround is to restart the Dedicated Server (DS) every 3 or 4 days to release that memory. Oh and to answer your question, I have 512mb of memory. I am adding another 512mb after the new year. But even then unless we change this situation, I will have to restart it every 6 to 8 days. Do you run a DS Cpt Gamer?
