    I bet OFP runs great now

    I was wondering about the issue of max viewing distances - I for one have always noticed only marginal improvements over the times as I have upgraded my hardware, but I must say I'm quite happy with my current rig (Intel C2D 8400 3Ghz, 2GB DDR3, GTS-250 1Gb), normally I run OFP at 3k viewdistance, my trick being that I use few addons and old islands that don't need additional addons. One thing I remember though is that in MP the viewdistance is reduced, is there any fixed value for that? Same goes for the weather, it also impacts viewdistance - best weather gives farthest viewdistance, whereas crappiest weather gives reduced viewdistance - would anybody know as to how far the viewdistance is reduced to with worst weather?

    Does anybody still play Operation Flashpoint?

    It's the one game which I know I'll always have to have space for. I have ArmA but I didn't reinstall it after the last PC upgrade. But OFP stays, it's simply too good. Recently I also finished my first machinima, which inevitably had to be shot in OFP. There I can control everything - even the passing of time and the weather! And I can offer the perspective of being a passenger - something I'll use in my next video. I don't mind it showing its age - its perfection still shines through. And I don't have visual mods either - I only have extra addons like islands, cars, vehicles, planes, units... and that's enough for me.

    OFP videography

    My 1st video... Well, it had to be of this venerable game. It's far from perfect, I should've worked a little more with the music but it's just an intro to something. Also I have to correct the credits so as not to forget Stoppelhopser, author of the original WW2 russian soldier, so expertly reconfigured by Macser, to whom I again extend my thanks. Enjoy - and please don't try to bash it too much as it is my 1st video ever... Since I haven't gotten myself a youtube account, I'm afraid you'll have to download it to watch it... http://rapidshare.com/files/312070848/Finalwin_X.wmv.html P.S.: Is there any better file hosting site other than rapidshare? Edit: Fixed the version, all is fine now.

    DXDLL 1.0 (not Geforce MX compatible)

    I've recently upgraded my rig's Gfx card from an Asus EN7950GT to a Gigabyte GTS-250, and DXDLL doesn't seem to work at all, although it worked perfectly well with my old card... is there any solution to this? Sorry if I haven't read through the whole 131 pages of this thread, I read the last 5 or so and didn't find anything similar to my problem... any help is appreciated!!!

    OFP Addon request thread

    Wow, haven't been on these forums for quite some time now but recently I wanted to revisit an island but I forgot its name... I just remember that it had Resistance textures and objects, was composed of at least 4 smaller islets (one in each corner forming a square IIRC) which were very low height (didn't rise much above sea-level and were mostly sandy texture), connected through bridges or very narrow stretches of land, didn't require other addons... was sort of an atoll island paradise... any ideas?

    PC Discussion Thread - All PC related in here.

    I've got a question about mouse software. Last year I chose to buy the Saitek Cyborg mouse but I never really got the software going for it. Until recently I didn't feel the pain too much of not having every button of it functional, but recently me and some friends decided to go for some old-school fun but I found that the game in question didn't support more than the two buttons and scroll wheel of it. Since Saitek's own software does not seem to work, even having installed the profile-creating software, I was wondering if there was some sort of third-party software that would enable my mouse to emulate certain keystrokes?

    F-22 and US-101 Cancelled

    Bah, the whole F-22 issue really is moot, the only question mark on the current political landscape that make it worthwhile is China, and even that hasn't been known for making the best of aircraft... As for the F-35, that's a plane that should never have been made... Sometimes some planes for some roles already reached their pinnacle, anything newer doesn't mean better, as in the case of the F-35 this is especially true. The F-16 is cheaper and can carry more. And it doesn't come anywhere near the A-10 for it's role, since it's neither armored enough nor carries enough nor does it carry a big enough gun in the nose, nor is it ugly enough so that people would love it. Actually, I think the A-10 looks sexier than the F-35, which is just about as bland as new-age plane construction could get. And something tells me that even the Royal Navy would be better off having something else than the F-35 to fly off it's future aircraft carriers. So I say - reopen the A-10 production line, don't just give 'em upgrades, the USAF needs more. Ha - having A-10's fly off RN carriers, now wouldn't that be something? Since CAS and COIN seem to take a much higher priority in today's conflicts...

    Brain-To-Machine Interface takes shape

    Brains work on the basis of electronic impulses, hence our souls are no more than operating systems for the biomechanical bodies that host them; the memory capacity of the human brain has already been established as being in the magnitude of terabytes, so yeah, going borg I'd say ftw - since machines don't age, and if they do, they can receive upgrades. Human life though can be considered going uphill until your thirties, probably 40's are the limit, then everything goes downhill from that, longer lifespan notwithstanding. Imagine supplying our souls with bodies that would never die... growing "old" would become truly synonymous with growing more experienced, and loose all it's negative connotations! Ofc that could just be me since I'm starting to feel old...

    Antonov An-2

    W00t! And here I thought I'd never see the An-2 released for OFP! Thanx! Btw, Roadkill, if you're planning on removing dependencies, could you make one that's totally "clean" except for the animation stuff? Stuffed with a standard OFP Resistance pilot or something... would be perfect! Will there be an eastern version perhaps?

    Bye Bye Old BI Forum

    The good thing about this forum is that it's pretty light on the traffic side meaning it opens up right away, no big loading times - search tool is another matter though... oh well...


    1) would be Blink Dog and 2) would be mr Duck who is still around on the forum IIRC.


    I don't remember seeing that mech anywhere... and I can't pinpoint that armored infantry, though it could be from the Wh40k mod? As for the woman, that's Buffy from the Amazon pack...

    UNICON warfare for ofp.

    Hmmm, something tells me it's got a cockpit too... right?

    UNICON warfare for ofp.

    Hey D@nte, don't know if you know this, but could serve as inspiration for something... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOXmsLyIVSI Dunno where the rest is but I have the full episode...

    WW2 Amphib vehicles

    Thanks, that did it, although I used canFloat=true; instead of canFloat=1;
