  1. Don't see any of this happening in the near future that's for sure!
  2. If you had of read the mission briefing, you'd have known right away. ;)
  3. You should have hidden that post in a spoiler, as some people reading may not have discovered it yet. There will be a red rectangle on your map, leave the rectangle to end the mission.
  4. Yeah, you'll need to take your entire squad away from the tower before any friendly units will spawn.
  5. Mate, it's still really entertaining! Lately I've been having a quick game everyday after firing up arma to get myself warmed up. ;)
  6. Just thought I'd let you know that when I tried to play this mission, there were no enemies on the map at all, even after trying three times. Also, the helicopters always crashed before dropping me reinforcements or supplies, and reinforcements on foot never came, even after I controlled three gates (including the insertion point). I got the error message, "WICT\start.sqf not found" on startup also. Shouldn't gates be green markers as well after I captured them? Because the marker stayed red after walking through them/capturing them. EDIT: It seems the addon was not launched correctly when I ran ARMA, because I do not get the script error anymore and I now have AI in the mission. I'll let you know if I am still having the reinforcements issues. Nope, all is good it seems with the reinforcements. And I have to agree with others, this mission is a real challenge! Have the AI been designed to be quite accurate in this mission?
  7. Very entertaining, can't wait for the next issue!

    Anyone try the Android version?

    I like how your instructor or whatever he is supposed to be always has his binoculars out, even when the targets don't go very far down rage. :P http://www.bistudio.com/images/stories/arma2fr/screenshots/A2FR_screenshot_03.jpg http://www.bistudio.com/images/stories/arma2fr/screenshots/A2FR_screenshot_05.jpg http://www.bistudio.com/images/stories/arma2fr/screenshots/A2FR_screenshot_02.jpg
  9. Hi, I've been looking around for a script, tutorial or demo mission on some point and click (on map) artillery; and can't find anything anywhere. I've read over the Artillery Module article in the BohemiaWiki but I'm having trouble understanding it and do not know if it even suits my purpose. Thanks.
  10. Hey buddy, I really appreciate you going out of your way to upload a demo for me but could you change the island to Utes? I don't have OA. Thanks!
  11. Sorry for the late reply. I've tried that many times but I do not have the option under my radio or communication menu.

    Arma 2 Retreat Tactics

    They still take their sweet time moving to the position in which you have ordered them.

    Arma 2 Retreat Tactics

    I find that the main problem is, when in combat mode the AI won't actually follow you and retreat. You can't change their combat mode either.

    What is wrong with the ARMA Community!

    In what way does Call of Duty or Battlefield simulate a military environment?
  15. For some strange reason, the default ArmA 2 soldiers sometimes look like this when I start the game. I have no idea why, but I'm pretty sure it's not from any mods I am currently running. In fact, the issue does not occur when using soldiers from 3rd party addons. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. :cheers:

    ArmA 2 is not a simulator, and cannot be used to simulate a combat or military environment? Oh, my mistake. ArmA 2 focuses on simulating a realistic military environment on a computer. It just so happens that doing this also offers entertainment for many different types of people and as a result we class ArmA 2 as a video game. Is it really so hard to understand? Stop being so stubborn and pull your head in.

    Isla Duala

    Nope, I ran it with all other mods disabled. Same problem.

    Arma 2 unit poly/rendering issue

    That didn't fix the issue mate, but thanks.

    It's also a readily available military simulator. People with military passion (that I don't expect you to understand) or ambition to join the military use it for just that. Doesn't the gameplay speak for itself? It's unlike any other first person shooter on the market.

    I have v1.95 but my Steyr is still white when zoomed in/aiming down sight?
  21. Full of shit with their promises? Well what I can say to that is their website and commercials can be a little misleading and you will gain absolutely no proper knowledge of what to expect when you do join. When you look at different salaries on DefenceJobs, you should know that if you are offered deployment opportunities (for example, you are sent to over to Afghanistan for a few months - although deployment to Afghanistan is very unlikely for you post-2014) your pay is dramatically increased. There is also other allowances, government pensions/funding etc. that are not really highlighted on the website and such.
  22. You don't get the rank of private, you earn it. You will begin your career as a recruit undertaking basic training at Kapooka, NSW. If you're joining the military with pay and benefits coming first to mind and as your main focus, I really think you should reconsider. Clearly you haven't done a lot of research and your knowledge primarily sources from and extends to movies, games and what you've gathered through your time playing ArmA. Let me tell you, you are in for a real shock when the time comes for your application and you're doing your YOU session/assessment day. I haven't served in the ADF as of yet, but I've been researching and chatting to Australian soldiers for over three years. At the moment, I am an apprentice diesel mechanic (I also currently work with an ex-serving member of the Royal Australian Infantry, who has also done a period of service as a private military contractor) because I'd like to think I know the general reality of what being an infantry soldier involves in the Australian army. And for this reason, I chose a trade so I could get a bit more maturity and "wake up to the real world" through more life experience, and because I needed something to fall back on if infantry life didn't didn't work out for me or I was bored after the 4 years minimum required service time (yes you heard me - bored). However, as a 15 year old it's understandable that you wouldn't know any better and all I can say is that I STRONGLY recommend you do a LOT of research before you bother enlisting, otherwise you're just wasting your time. Or if DFR are silly enough to accept your application, you will not have a positive experience in the military. I would also like to add that general infantry/rifleman in the ADF is currently "full" in the sense that they are no longer offering enlistment in that role as such, however they are still looking for infantry officers. Just a thought.
  23. Hi guys, For some reason, nightime in my game is absolutely pitch black. It never used to be like this and I cannot work out why it is now. I used to be able to play without night vision goggles but that is now impossible. Can anyone think of any reason why it is now so dark? Cheers. EDIT: It is even worse if I remove all the fog and make it completely "sunny". It also does not appear to happen on Utes. I have also just realised it only happens after I load a particular mission. The problem persists until I reload the island.
  24. Why do infantry as an officer?
  25. Yeah, I wasn't sure how to set it up. I find it to be a bit too confusing which is why I'm trying to find a demo mission of some sort. Thanks, champ.
