  1. I have a HOTAS setup, and have trim dials and see set trim option in the game window. I see it has configs for keys in control options, but not exactly sure how to set this up properly... Can someone with a clue fill in a newb? Also explain what the release is, and when I would want to use that? Very confused :D Be much appreciated...
  2. Guess it dont work, there's the link Shows on take off how chopper just immediately turns right with excessive torque... Things to note when watching this video. 1. I am a newb pilot.. But I have just spent 4-5 hours tweaking my controls to even get this bird off the ground and to stop it from spinning like a top... I am heavy on the left rudder... When i finally fly straight I had to totally gain forward momentum somehow getting to tip the nose down.. it was pure luck that I got it started, and the first time i ever flu that straight so i guess there is hope... 2. When flying somewhat straight I am 85% left rudder and constantly pushing the nose down 3. My hand is hurting from massive force applied to my stick to counter for feedback from game 4. I have to constantly move rudders back and forth to fool the system i guess and not have my bird rotate totally on its right side.. but maintain 85% left rudder Dunno what else to say, just want some advice, opinions, feedback, tips, etc, as I don't want to fly with auto trim on :D Collective feels very strange, i show you in game when warming up that my collective is setup and working right... Just seems like the feedback takes way to long to register in game, thus maybe why everyone complains they can't land soft... Surprised anyone can land at all, i sure cant... ---------- Post added at 05:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:18 PM ---------- yes i need serious help creating and converting videos too, sorry about the 240p. I record in fraps, and then dunno what to do to make it look good?!?!
  3. For those that have Steam and having problems getting the game to load. Here is a how-to if you have Steam in the default location. This is for Windows 7 Step 1: Install the Community Preview Download. Step 2: Create a new shortcut on your desktop. Right Click desktop area and create new shortcut For Location type in the following "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\tkoh_preview\takeonhpreview.exe" -mod=tkoh_preview then click next. Step 3: Now type in your name for the shortcut "Take on Helicopters" Hit ok. A shortcut has been created on your desktop Step 4: Right click the shortcut and choose properties Step 5: Look at the target area, it should state what we entered... "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\tkoh_preview\takeonhpreview.exe" -mod=tkoh_preview Now look under that in the Start in Section. Modify this so it only points to the arma 2 operation arrowhead folder.. It should look like the following... "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead" Step 6: Now click apply, and click DONE Step 7: You are ready to play.. double click the shortcut and Enjoy!
  4. Oh cool, have something to do tomorrow now :D
  5. Is there a new third patch or something Im missing? Autotrim works even on expert as far as I know.... even has a bug where its already on...
  6. Not sure it has any effect in TKoH, havent tried it though. It's the equivalent of hitting the afterburner on a Jet. For other vehicles it gives extra boost to get thru some tough terrain, think thats the point of it as the terrain can cause issues that are not neccessarily real life perfect
  7. From what I have learned Angle, you might be taking the copter to high cyclic too fast, try to find the right amount of thrust increase if using a throttle stick (please don't confuse throttle with in game throttle).. while applying left rudder is key to counter the torque, then set your trim when stable to put your pedals back to "normal" position... Also check your version, to make sure you have the latest one... The older initial release seems to have more trouble than the latest one, unless you apply the weight reduction hack...
  8. Is it in english? Is it digital download or boxed copy?

    Please change the name!

    According to your poor debate, I now like the title more than ever. And don't F with Zork! Zork rules.

    Naah, Modules never add value to MP gaming... segregation = bad.

    Naah, just buy Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, the only reason you would want Arma 2, is for the original Arma 2 campaign. no other reason to have it. Better yet, buy the Anniversay edition, Arma X and have everything including OpFP: Cold War Assault (Err sorry, Arma: Cold War Assault) :D I have to admit, they are getting silly with their releases and products.. And then to top it off, only this is available here, not here. and the price differences at places is different, then some things you can get on steam but others you cant.. Becomes quite a joke.. I never seen a game title that where I would want to purchase things, but never do because of the bullshit involved, the pricing, availability, and the confusion as well. Its also segregating the community Hint though, Arma 2: CO is on sale right now for $23 USD, and $20 USD for Arma 2: OA

    Naah the game has some problems, I think that was caused from the payload hack -250, I use -125 now and seem to be doing ok now flying on expert mode with no auto trim
  13. You have head bob on? Head bob is the most unrealistic game feature I have ever seen implemented. If that's what you feel like when you are running in real life, you must be one serious clutz. I can run full speed and I'm in complete control of my body and vision, and it's as steady as a mounted tripod. Quite frankly even the gun sway is a bit over exaggerated, at least to my skill level. That I could live with.. head bob, pfft waste of code
  14. JzHLMsvuejM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzHLMsvuejM Yup, Expert Mode, Take off, Flight and Landing.. Newbs can fly too ya know, but you can guess the ending.. although my next one you'll be surprised... Now if someone can clue me in on how to use fraps so these vids don't look like complete crap :D ---------- Post added at 04:49 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:22 AM ---------- Mf7rqtZDqeo Haha, I learned a lot from my last landing attempt, so I went right back into the sky with a new bird and "TADA", I nailed the landing!!! It was not the least bit pretty, but my first time ever to land the helicopter! To top it off, I am in expert mode, with NO AUTO TRIM. Beat that you vets!! This Newb just got promoted.
  15. Did Ivan say that no real soldier would ever use suppressive fire or was it translated wrong? If he did I am a bit scared that the developers have no military experience or even ever seen a combat war clip. Sorry for some reason that just stuck out like a sore thumb to me.

    Thats how I have it, just so odd, i can never descend.. takes me like 5 minutes to go down and i can fly for like hours on 0% thrust. if i do get it to go down its impossible to stay level, flopping out of the sky like a fish out of water
  17. Multiplayer is not yet available for ToH: CP, but you can always hang out share your experience and expert tutalage with your gaming friends on TeamSpeak 3 The ToH TS 3 is located at ts3.nobotters.com port 4111 There are tons of slots available, and channel is easily located in the Aviation section.. Enjoy my friends...
  18. Somewhat a fix, works so far for me anyhow.. I started Take On Helicopter community preview, when into options and changed character to another player that was defined but not used in Take on Helicopter... Then closed down game and restarted Arma 2: OA normally and it booted... I then went into options and chose my main character and voila, back to playing Arma 2.. The ToH:CP must do something to a player config file that causes a problem. ---------- Post added at 09:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 PM ---------- Forgot to mention I am running Arma: OA on steam and have PMC as a separate DLC purchase and use that launch from steam. But a fix is posted above for those peeping in...
  19. I get the error compiling pixelshader PSSSSMSpecularAlpha:1 and then CTD Researched this error, problem existed long ago and unrelated, so starting a new thread. Take on Helicopters beta preview works fine.. I have Arma 2 Free installed and it works fine... Just my Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, (also booting as PMC) is getting this problem now, and it worked fine yesterday before installing the helicopter community preview... Not sure what to try???

    my evaluation

    Well from the little that I do know... over 60 knots the rotor is basically uneffective no?
  21. Ok, so in short, what I think is a command is just the game telling me I am at full throttle and ready to fly? Then indeed I think it should be better worded. e.g (Helicopter is now at Full Throttle) In my setup, I have no stick configured to add/reduce thrust, i only have applied stick to analog thrust and analog break... I assume that is correct way of this? What about my toe rudders, should they be set to anything?
  22. No problem, thanks for the feedback, with learning what trim is and how to use it, I may get this bird soaring shortly.. going in to set my trim and see what happens ;D
  23. I have been playing Since OPFP Days, I am very familiar with Arma 2 and flight. Well for filming yes, but third person is really the only way you can get off the ground because you have no "REAL BODY FEELING" and can't notice you are tipping over when in cockpit like you can in 3rd person, 9/10 times its a crash and burn most of the time before getting 1" off the ground, although i do notice maybe I wasnt warmed up fully... I'll have to go back and replay as 1st person a few more times. I wish I had recorded my first videos where i was spinning in circles like seriously 180 times per second... its that crazy of a torque to the right ---------- Post added at 06:27 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:25 PM ---------- Thanks, I mean a little bit more LOW LEVEL in SOFTWARE sort of speak :D
