  1. @ Big_T You do know that 3rd person is optional(client,server,mission) and some of us see the usage of it if you can't see any. Server admins can choose what they offer and players where they play. Find servers that have it disabled and play there. Can't find enough servers with it disabled, make your own one. I don't see why you think you have to dictate to other people how they must play the game and what is best for them. FaceTrackNoIR is not TrackIR, it's in the name.

    CD-Key lost, help!

    First of all can you retrieve your old cd key back with a verify integrity of game cache? If not and your registry key is still the bad one, you won't be able to enter a new one even if you buy it.
  3. Are you giving them away for free? If not, then that's not even close to a solution.
  4. And you know about that how? Do you have access to the ArmA 3 source and you compiled a version with those aspects disabled?

    Voice Acting has got to go.

    Voices are fine and not game breaking in my opinion. Even if voice acting was redone, I am sure some of us would find something against the new ones.
  6. Won't be better to use the feedback server? The devs have tools there to monitor a bug and communicate with you. Do you expect for everyone to post his crash in your thread or to post individually threads? In both cases it would lead to chaos.
  7. We didn't have to do it for beta in ArmA2, but as this is an alpha and much things can change with no regard to compatibility you better try same version servers.

    Low CPU utilization & Low FPS

    Did you test for this or are you just assuming? Good thing that we have overclocking software and we can rule out a thing like video ram bandwidth. My video ram at 3.1GHz and 3.6GHz gives the same frames when I am not GPU limited. Should I swap my GTX680 4GB for my old GTX480 1.5GB? lol. And you think ArmA3 (or any other game for the matter) can become bottle necked in a PCIEx16 3.0 connection? Don't think so.

    Steam vs BIS Store & Exclusivity - Explained

    ArmA 2 came in 2009, lowest sale price in steam was $6.49 (right now). See you after 4 years. :)

    Did BI push an update?

    All my files in my ArmA 3 folder are still the same so unless steam has managed to run updated versions through the cloud I would go with placebo effect.

    Glass gets shot out

    But not for all buildings, the windows from the control tower in the airfield have the glass breaking sound but stay the same.

    Changing stance while moving? Is it possible?

    They should add a stance up/stance down key binding because with the modifier key and the hardwired front/back function you can't do it. I am already using my thumbstick on my G13 for left/right analog leaning, it would be nice to bind stance up/stance down to the up/down thumbstick.
  13. v0.5.102571 is normal version (what everyone runs), so you have just enabled the development build version but you too are waiting for it to be updated. You are not running on a newer build.

    Can't buy supporter edition?

    :) Never.
  15. Are you sure you are using the development build, because enabling/disabling this option doesn't do anything for me, no new files are downloaded (I tried with verify game cache and restarting steam). What is your build number in menu? Maybe it's a placebo effect that it is running better.

    Texture quality setting

    Doubt it, your choices must be limited by the amount of video ram detected.
  17. If you Alt-TAB to steam you can resume updating and then continue playing. Helpful if you play a single player game.

    Fps counter?

    There is no built in fps counter that I know, but you can script one in a mission. Most use external programs like Fraps, MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision. Personally, I am using MSI Afterburner.

    Texture quality setting

    Maximum usage I managed to get on my 4GB card is around 2.5GB.
  20. Any lessons learned for the eventual future releases? How many people were hammering the servers? :)
  21. Probably they are resending all confirmations to clear out the problem with missing emails due to overloading servers and the remaining problematic cases might have to be looked one by one. Maybe in some cases BI didn't get confirmation of paying from paypal or the credit card processing facility they use. These purchases might be stuck in a virtual limbo.
  22. If you mean starting a 2nd server under the same pc, steam seems to block a second (or more) instance of arma3.exe running under a account. I think there is no workaround to running 2 or more servers on single pc without using virtual servers. Maybe something could be done with running another steam instance in another windows account.
  23. Your link doesn't work, here is a corrected one. Your card isn't recognized as a Windows 8 Graphics Card it's just that the name of the driver for your graphics card is called "Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 8®". This could be just a .inf naming issue of the driver or you mistakenly installed a Windows 8 only driver (most graphics card drivers are universal for W7 and W8).
  24. At the moment the arma3.exe requires a account with ArmA 3 to start, so use your own account in offline mode or buy a second copy.

    Situation update?

    Was the DRM removed with the latest patch or should we expect to eventually run out of activations and the game becoming non operable?
