    RH M4/M16 pack

    Hey RobertHammer, I am sure you are aware of it, but after the update when deploying weapons when prone the player is lowered into the ground a little bit. I guess you know that and working to fix it, but just thought I will share anyway. Hope you are planning to add support for the bipods and/or make your bipod animation work with the deploy button rather than with the fire selection key. Ho and I just Love you weapon pack, Thank you!
  2. Thank you :) I Would have like to make a new model but it's too much for a beginner I guess. Maybe one day.
  3. Hey, sorry for the late reply. took me a while to get back to it. But... it works :) Thank you for your help, Much appreciated. Bez.
  4. Thank you very much! I will try it once i get back home. Bez.
  5. Hey, I am very much new to editing and I am not sure what is the problem. I made a retexture for the kitbag following this thread And still nothing comes up in virtual arsenal but I get no errors when starting arma I don't know what is wrong. This is my code: class CfgPatches { class My_Mod_Config { units[] = {"bez_black_kitbag"}; weapons[] = {}; requiredVersion = 0.1; requiredAddons[] = {}; }; }; class CfgVehicles { class B_Kitbag_rgr; class bez_black_kitbag: B_Kitbag_rgr { _generalMacro = "bez_black_kitbag"; picture = ""; model = "\A3\weapons_f\Ammoboxes\bags\Backpack_Fast"; hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"\Black_Kitbag\Data\Bez_black_kitbag.paa"}; displayName = "Bez Black Kitbag"; scope = public; maximumLoad = 500; passThrough = 1; mass = 5; }; }; Thanks Bez.
  6. Hey all, I was looking for some simple one color retextured units of the independent faction to play as some sort of specop units, Since I don't like the independent camo and I really don't like the bluefor uniforms in general. I was amazed not to find any so I decided to make some. this is my first (well second) try at making an addon, As I went along I decided i will make the Shayetet 13 uniforms also (Israeli naval commandos) since I really like these uniforms. This is very much WIp, I plan to retexture the vests and backpacks as well. The m4 in the picture is from Robert Hammer's excellent m4 pack, it is NOT part of the addon, it is here just for the screenshot. And I used b00ce PSD template (I think, sorry if I got it wrong) for the texture work. The rest of the gear is Vanilla Arma 3. When I think it's complete I will release it. Hope you like it.

  7. True, I might have been a little bit angry, maybe more than I should have been, I am truly sorry if hurt anyone feelings, but you got the point and this is the reason for this post. You think (again plural you) I don't want to play ArmA3? hell no! there is nothing more I would like to do than play this game with friends. I REALLY WANT to buy the helicopter DLC for example just for the shooting from vehicles, and I wouldn't mind paying them for the sniper DLC as well. But why should I buy any of those when I can't really play the game? I TRULY love this game, it is by far my favorite game of all times. I have 376 hours on record despite all the bugs and low fps. but I am tiered of it and all I want is that BI know that, will it help? I don't know but I hope it will. Like I said I respect the devs and I know they don't do it on purpose. but that is how economics and free market works, if people buy it, they will continue to work the way the always did. but if they will see the sales are going down they will have to do something about it. There is nothing personal here and I am sorry if I sounded angry. And this is not rage quit either since I do still play the game once in a while.
  8. I take the GO-KART back then, replace it with helicopter DLC or Zeus or whatever. I also never mentioned the amount of staff BI have. Also, I stated in the original post that I know they are not a major company with millions of dollars and that ArmA is a much more complex game than the average PC game. I know all of that. And yes, I know that bugs are being ironed out all the time and bringing new features create new bugs, I know that. But, it dose not change anything. At the current state of things i don't think that let's say ArmA 4 will be any different, and THAT is my main point. If BI will be the same BI they have been for the past 13 years, ArmA4 would be the same mess ArmA3 is now. So I don't care about GO-KART or how many devs they have or don't have. I just don't want to spend 60$ on a game I KNOW will be a bug fest OR to spent money on a DLC for ArmA3 while I can't even play it. That is all. you want to spend 60$ go ahead, it's your money. And just as disclaimer so the devs know it's nothing personal, I have allot of respect for you guys for making a game like that, I know it's not easy, I know you work hard, nights and days, I know you want this game to be the best it can be, I know that. But unfortunately it's not enough guys. sorry, but I just lost my trust and am not willing to give you anymore of my money. like I said, nothing personal.
  9. Too many posts to reply them all but I will try. First of all, no, I don't have anything to replace Arma3 with. but if you will read closely I never said I will never play it again, I said I will never buy a BI product again. But to be honest I rarely play this game anymore because of many other reasons. When I do play, I play SP and once in a while I try to play MP but I usually quit after one minute because of extreme low fps (lag is not a good term, it is just low fps) About my system, like I said I know I don't have the best system, but SP runs on high settings with a decent amount of AI beautifully with out any problem, so obviously my computer can handle the game. About my internet connection, it's FINE. I play online game all the time, never have a problem with other games. only in Arma3 MP. My internet is FINE! About giving you more details, I don't see the point. I have tried most of the suggestions I found in the internet, none worked. what makes you think (plural you), you will solve it all of a sudden? guess what, you won't! I agree it could be something in my computer, but I can't buy a new computer just for this game for the slim chance it MIGHT solve the problem. I hear plenty of stories about people with monster rigs that have MP low fps, so no, it's not a solution. Also I am an adult I am not a little kid, I work hard for a living, I can't spend most of my time to try and solve this issue, and I spent too much already. and i don't have a mom and dad that will buy me a new computer, I have bills to pay, rent, food to buy etc. AND JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR AGAIN MY COMPUTER IS FINE!!!! About fanboys or not fanboys, I never called anyone a fanboy, you like the game and it works for you, that is great, I am happy for you all, I really am. I like the game also, but it's broken for me (and many other people!) I gave BI plenty of time to address these issues, I helped in the alpha and beta, I gave feedback, and I hoped BI will listen, so it's not that I hate the game or hate the devs, nothing is personal here, so stop taking it that way. But wait, it's not just the MP low fps, I go way back with BI (since the beginning) I always knew BI games are buggy, but I believed that with time they will improve, iron out bugs learn from their mistakes. and also of course OFP / ArmA series is a one of kind so I continued to buy their games regardless of their buggy nature. Now I agree Arma3 is better in many aspects, but there are still so many things that are just plain laziness on their behalf (the devs). So many things in this game are EXACTLY the way they were in OFP from 2001!!! excuse me but this is unacceptable in my opinion. Yet they have time to make Go kart DLC??? REALLY GO KART? WTF??? Now you can hate me all you want, but I (as an adult) choose to vote with my wallet! I will stop giving BI my money, if you want to do that, go ahead, it's your money. But I refuse to spend anymore money on half assed rushed buggy products from this company. 13 years of being a loyal customer and waiting for them to release at least ONCE a working game is beyond reasonable! The fact is (and excuse me dear devs) I don't believe they can pull it off anymore, unless they do some drastic changes with their engine or programmers, I don't know which one but it dose not matter, you get the point (I hope). But I lost my trust, I didn't post this to get solutions to the MP problem, I post this so they know they are loosing customers and they better get their act together and do something about it. I understand it's hard for some of you to hear this, but this is my decision and I believe if more of you will do the same they will be forced to recognize the problem and try and fix it instead of making stupid DLC the whole day. You don't agree with me, you don't like me, I get it. but I stand 100% behind my words as harsh as they might seem. I did not curse anyone, I did not break any forum rules, i was not trolling or flaming, so to the one who reported this thread who ever you are, GET A LIFE! Good day to you all enjoy your game. Assaf.
  10. Yes but I don't have energy for that anymore to be honest. All I do is play SP now. thanks anyway. But why did I write this post maybe some of you wonder, well because i truly believe BI didn't optimize MP like they can. and if they can't well that is a problem on it's own. 70 ping is totally normal for MP games. you can't expect everyone will have 20 ping. and if they do, that is another problem.
  11. Well I live in Israel and there are not so many here, most of them are closed with passwords. So I am pretty much forced to play on German servers, since Germany and Israel have good direct underwater cables connecting each other. And even in Israeli servers the lowest ping I ever saw was 45.
  12. @AtinAkiri well, it's a good question which I have no answer to. The only time I get reasonable FPS is on Stratis with low numbers of AI and like 10 players and even then most of the time it's like around 15. On Altis I have yet to play a SINGLE game since release with decent fps I get around 7 (average) I tried allot of the fixes that are around the internet and from what I know I am not alone. Also as the game got updated it just got worse, at the begining I could still play here and there. And like I said I get well above 30 fps in SP even with allot of AI in Altis. I waited for a reasonable amount of time for this issue to be addressed, for me the game is unplayable, for you it is. good for you. @TheEvanCat, it's got nothing to do with ping, I always choose low ping servers (around 70 is the lowest I can) nothing helps. but thank you for trying to help. Sure my rig is not the best, but SP runs on high setting very smooth and MP on all low settings is laging like crazy. to be honest Video settings has no effect on the FPS what so ever, it's low fps either way. The only thing I can think about is that I have a very bad luck with servers and all the servers I have been to are just crap. But statistically the odds of me not getting on at least ONE good server since release are very low. If you know any good powerful servers in Europe I can try and see if that helps, please let me know. And it's not I like to be a troll or just flame the forums you can see since 2010 i have only 61 posts (including this one) But I honestly lost all hope and I truly love this game with all my heart and all I want is to play MP with my friends but I just can't. but sure go ahead report this post (whoever you are) but did I break any forum rules? no i didn't.
  13. Multiplayer LAG, IT IS UNPLAYABLE!!!! And the F scroll menu, THE EXACT SAME FROM THE ORIGINAL OFP IN 2001!!!! Seriously BI!!! NOT COOL AT ALL! Sorry for caps but i am angry!

    The ArmA III Engine

    It is the same engine with allot of code rewrites. You can say it's a patched engine and that is why it sucks. You can patch something up for so long until it breaks totally. And I think it is safe to say that Arma3 is the breaking point.
  15. Hello BI, I am one of your first customers, I bought the original OFP cold war crisis on Disc when it just released, I was 21 at the time. I then bought the resistance addon also on Disc and on release as well. I skipped Arma1 but I bought ARMA 2 (on release on disc), and operation Arrowhead (release, disc) and the UK DLC (digital download). I love all of these games, you made the game of my dream. I also bought Arma3 and was part of the alpha and beta, even though I don't like the future theme. But I could not deny it is a step above the older games. In short, I love it, it's by far my favorite game ever. And I know it's an ambitious project like no other PC game on the market, and I also know you are not a major publisher with millions of dollars to back it up. But I am sorry guys, i gave you enough time to fix this issue, the game is out of beta for a long time now and I am sorry to say but Multiplayer is still no where near playable. LAG LAG LAG, nothing helps. (-EDIT- a better term would be extremely low fps, not lag) This is the only reason I want this game, SP is of no interest to me. I lost my trust in you guys as a developer. I am sorry for this harsh post but you lost a loyal costumer. Further more I will not recomend any of my friends to buy any of your games. Unless you are willing to make a serious commitment to fix the multiuplayer issues this game has, and not just make more DLCs while the game is not even playable. Good luck Assaf. -EDIT- Just to make things clear, sure OFP and Arma2 also had these issues, but they got fixed at the end. I could play Arma2 multiplyer just fine. But Arma3? 60 fps in SP but around 7 on MP. and i don't hear you guys trying to fix it. plenty time have passed, and what do you do? DLC DLC DLC. like I said, I lost my trust in you.
