  1. Does anyone else not use WASD for movement?

    Numpad user here.
  2. I want A4 as I can't trust A3 while making missions. All the reasons can be read in the development branch so no need for me to open up that discussion here. All other versions I gladly updated to because they were better looking and had more features, this time I want to change so I can leave A3 behind. Sad to say.
  3. AI Discussion (dev branch)

    I would love to hear about that design decision. It boggled my mind that side specific values was removed as it removed the option to have good AI on one side playing against bad AI (either spec op vs guerilla OR to have an easier game). Now if my AI are spec op even a rag tag army will be an as good enemy force. The old way still made it possible to have the skill equal on both sides if one wished to. What benefit was there in this new restricted way? Im genuinelly curious and I would love to understand. And I have always liked when BI developers explains more how the thoughts, limitations and design affect the game as it can for me look strange until I understand the picture you guys see.
  4. Arma 4 a look to the future

    Will give them a run!
  5. Audio Tweaking (dev branch)

    I can only talk about T55, T72 och BMPs in RL and the T's can be heard very far. I remember the first time I tried to locate them I misjudged so much and thought they were just a few 100m away from me. But that's oldfashion combustion engines.
  6. AI Driving - Feedback topic

    I would also drink if I had no women around me.
  7. Re-mapping is a train wreck

    Im a right handed person and play using the numpad. I lost all my settings when A3 hanged and I had to force a reboot of my win10. Then I lost all my settings, my user was completely default, key bindings and game settings. I now have my profile backup. But it's no problem remapping to numpad. As PuFu says you must have something double mapped. What you cant rebind however is left ctrl combos and some eden/camera controls. So in eden I resigned and use default wasd scheme..
  8. Firing from vehicles using launchers?

    I can take a look later and see if I find something useful or if it's a dead end.
  9. RHS and A3/CUP terrains. That's the only mods we use in coop.
  10. Firing from vehicles using launchers?

    Could be done with a mod, probably a small config job. You could try to make one and yes I'm serious about it. I saw that you have been looking into it already in the addon and config sub forum. My tip is to start looking through the game configs until you find the relevant code, you can do that in eden. When you find that open up a question in the relevant subforum on how to change it and create a small addon. It's seriously not as difficult as one might think :)
  11. Focus on gameplay not games, please.

    I doubt it's the same guys working on 3d models and missions that bughunt and implement features, so LoW probably didn't take much if any time from that. And here is a list of fixes since 2013: Fixes to game mechanics
  12. For too long I been annoyed of the default action icon which pops up at the center of my screen. Sometimes it can even disrupt my gameplay, for example when I want to confirm a long shot with optics and that reload icon pops up hiding the target... I should have done this long ago as this is a quick fix. I will not bother making this to an official addon as people have different opinions, wishes and aspect ratios. So I will post the config here for anyone to do whatever they see fit with it. By changing the numbers one can move the icon left, right, up and down, also relative or not to the cursor. It's also possible to change the size of the icon. In this example I have my icon center at the bottom at my screen with normal size. I use a 16:10 monitor. class CfgPatches { class NameThisToWhatever { units[] = {}; weapons[] = {}; requiredVersion = 0.1; requiredAddons[] = {"A3_UI_F"}; }; }; class CfgInGameUI { class DefaultAction { hotspotX = 0; // default 0 hotspotY = -10; // default 0 relativeToCursor = 0; // default 1 size = "( ( ( ((safezoneW / safezoneH) min 1.2) / 1.2) / 25) * 0.8)"; // default 0.8 }; }; It's probably possible to make this in a much fancier way to fit all different monitors and maybe even to tweak it in a more user friendly way? If you know how to do it please do it and release a signed addon as I'm sure more players would like that. I just don't have the time to do the research. Sorry.
  13. Focus on gameplay not games, please.

    "That fix" is not done among many other fixes of higher importance. But there are many fixes done over the years with great benefit for the whole community. BI just dont share you personal priority, and neither do I. Sure it would be nice but it's far from the top on the list.
  14. Arma 4 a look to the future

    I tried some official gameplay in A3 but always rage quit as the missions are too much dependent on "xbox UI" (<- excuse me ;) ). As I play without any UI help (except stance and weapon info) I struggle finding my way as BI rely on WP UI instead of a written briefing with solid markers. But maybe I should give the official campaigns a try...
