    What's required for ArmA:OA?

    Talking this through on Steam, pretty evident that there are disadvantages and only very small benefit.

    LEA - Loadout Editor for ArmA 3

    So glad to know this has happened! Will let it be known. ^5
  3. Theaters of operation? I have 3 battles in mind: LZ Xray / Ia Drang, Kapyong, and Cisterna di Latina. So that's Vietnam, Korea, and E'n Italy. Was just talking with an old squaddie about getting into that sorta thing.
  4. I don't know about file validity but I've never seen such a slow DL. 24M done; 275M to go; ETA 2hrs 10mins at 38KB/S. That's on FTP1. But get this: ETA 25mins on FTP2. heads up!

    Ups and downs with Bohemia

    "... downloading the OFP demo on my old modem" huh huh ... there should be a 2nd set of credits in AA3 for folk who've been along for the long ride! (FWIW I have my OFP:DR CDs right here.)
  6. "League" ... back in the days of America's Army 2 (I was with 75th Rangers) there was a competitive ladder. Not 50V50 stuff ... usually 4V4. Sometimes 6V6. I was partial to 2V2 ;p Is that something like what you intend? "Rubber" rings no bells here. (No diss.)
  7. Dunno 'MAG ... I normally have 343/148 ... never had a problem. Dunno what is snagging you.
  8. Not sure this is the best place for this, but: RFE: AGC Something like left / right / center, allowing the player to select one radio as prime i.e. when there's a signal coming in on that channel, other radios are turned down. ("Muted" would be wrong; reduced would do the trick. Possible to adjust relative whatever other signal is present? so primary is +6dB or so?) Effect: less audio clutter. p.s. trying to post a reply to the Pipe Error comment. It gets appended here. That's a real PITA.

    ACRE Pipe Error?

    Not positive, but that seems to be a common strand ... absent anything else that makes sense.Working with a buddy right now ... same problem ... same lack of diagnostics / logic / sense. Just weird voodoo.
  10. Great news; thanks near_ ^5 (Had done only 1 mission with _M4, and we were under fire at the time.)
  11. Don't get me wrong, I think ACOG is just fine. Brilliant in fact. But ... there's M16 / 203 / Aimpoint. Closest I can get with M4 (so far as I can tell) is 203 / ACOG. RFE? I should just suck it up and go M16? Or have I just missed it somehow. <<= this ^5 http://www.bentrem.sycks.net/75thr/arma/images/AimPoint.jpg (155 kB)
  12. /* Problem was between chair and keyboard */ Yes I had gotten into those servers multiple times previously. So ".hpp not found" seemed absurd. But in fact I did not have the correct mods enabled / selected. So at some point something changed and ACRE failed. Point: MustRPTmust confirm that required mods are in fact being loaded. thanks to KassaReD for the .bat that cleared this up. ^5

    ACRE Pipe Error?

    Just read "How I fixed my ACRE problem". Buddy's stuff was working fine. Then it stopped. He had been using 32 bit. He started using 64 and everything was back to working.
  14. I've got a question about ACRE and Win7; 2 guys with same "pipe" problem, and same apparently correct setups. Can I ask that here? Seems to me you guys would most likely have heard about weirdness. p.s. first time in my life today I ran in "pipe/closing" ... got me feeling hexed!

    ACRE Pipe Error?

    Just talked to a game admin for a large clan. He came up with the usual suggestions and in the end "I don't know what to tell you." FWIW my suspicion: something about a Win7 update, or a TS update, or an ACRE update. Something changed. good luck ^5 ---------- Post added at 07:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:33 PM ---------- ... my old brain just remembered something. This is old data that keeps turning up ... it's normally not true ... but it used to be fact. And it might just shake something loose. This used to be righteous doctrine: "Teamspeak is the current version ACRE supports." That's just nonsense, now. Tons of us, maybe most, have updated and are using ... ... but ... this is something to try. Find 0.8.1 on the TS site and install that. Easy enough to update later. If it doesn't work? then I won't accept payment for services rendered. ;p But it might. ^5

    ACRE Pipe Error?

    I appreciate how frustrating this must be; things are plenty complicated without! Yes.Just like with the other guy I'm trying to help. Regular/routine updates of OS, TS, game, and mods (via SixUpdater). Then one day no joy. Of course that makes no sense because ... it makes no sense. Something changed. But just what remains a mystery. (I even wondered about firewall ... which is just silly.) That's all rubber chicken / voodoo stuff. I mean it's a shotgun approach, rather than being directed at a specific item.But yes ... do whatever you can. Best hope: find someone else with similar problem. I'm sorry, I've exhausted my ideas. When I hear "Pipe problem", "permissions not correct" comes to mind. I can't think of anything else.

    ACRE Pipe Error?

    And when that fails, people get "Just run TS as Admin" thrown at them a buncha times.Fair enough to check the basics. But the culture of assuming that the other guy is a twit ... man, that really gets tiresome. By any chance, you running Win7?Cuz we've got a clan member who has repeated/constant pipe errors ... after things working fine for months ... checked / doubled checked everything (even using TeamViewer) ... had him install Launcher (which I use normally) instead of using SixUpdater to launch (which I have never done) ... and no joy. Everything running as Admin. Pipe error. WTF /me suspects something Win7 specific ... see below

    Expansion assistance!

    Hang in there ... keep your powder dry. Someone's bound to find this interesting. good luck p.s. have you approached Steam security team?
  19. Wow ... got me flashing back to BF1942! ;p

    Army of the Czech Republic DLC

    Know what? There's 120 pages in this thread. 1191 comments. I read through and I find comments on trees ... ... mebbe it's just me, but I have to just shrug and install. I don't really like doing that.

    SQF Editor

    Saw "JDK required"; have JRE but not JDK; downloaded the editor; installed; ran. Joy. p.s. Eclipse plugin? Ooh, shiny idea!
  23. I seem to be missing something. Wonderful map but ... ... is there a mission that goes with it? I have 3 other ranges, and each one I spawn and find a variety of teleport points / scripts for targets and such. Are you guys running in Edit mode or something? /*flummoxed*/
  24. Ok: I haven't read the previous 70+ pages ... so this is sorta like trolling, but for an answer. /*Don't shoot!*/ Using 117 or 119 on Squad Mate's back; best info I have is "Not yet implemented". That's so? We're looking forward to this. --TAW_Dawks p.s. I very usually / always use VOX for TS. Got me thinking: any way of having VOX for DirectComms in game? I'm tempted to call that RFE but not sure it's even possible.
  25. So ... is it just me? (I know it isn't, AAMOF.) A couple of weeks ago Six started updated 3, 4 ... 8 times each time I launched it. So I tore it out by the roots, installed the newest version, and carried on. Now it only updates once ... every other day or so. Is this normal? is something amiss?
