    LEA - Loadout Editor for ArmA 3

    Thanks, saved me some time, recently noticed they weren't loading. This too: for Rahim "10Rnd_762x51_Mag" should be "10Rnd_762x54_Mag"
  2. Yep, the .61 minedetector.sqf works with BTC. Thanks
  3. Hi, I have been using the mine detector script for quite awhile, and enjoying it with no problems. Recently tried the BTC revive with same mission, which gives a script error with MDLALA_fnc_Condition_Detect, after being revived. I'm not really familiar with how revive scripts work, any ideas how to resolve this? *EDIT* Tried Farooq's Revive, it is compatible. Must be the way respawn is dealt with.
  4. I remember this, thanks for reminding me. The thought of never seeing the A2 browser felt so good at the time. I wonder how much of their plans was affected by the gamespy demise. Great idea with the checked box idea guys. The rescan sometimes gets stuck for me, and is something that happens in dayz even more.
  5. Say what, ACE is all about coop, maybe your speaking pvp, but you still must cooperate when in ace, whether your against AI or players or its going to waste. I cant think of a more cooperative experience than ace mortars. :j:MDCCLXXVI great post, well said.

    Incredible mission rydygier! I thought you might be playing it too delta, classic in veteren mode! Its a great alternative to multiplayer or editing, problem is figuring out how to get back to thoughs?:confused:

    13€ DLC, hefty price for 2 choppers

    LOL, so it is about price, thanks for clarifying. Look at your post, you actually typed "most valid objections are about the fact that the dlc is 80-90% free" !!! free? this is a problem? Not sure about percentages, but your right. It is a very interesting dlc model, time will tell if it works. It's a risk that they have the luxury of making at this point, and they're taking a risk for the community, and moaning is how its re-paided. They're addressing axed features and splitting community. Maybe people just feel bad about freeloading. You shouldn't.

    13€ DLC, hefty price for 2 choppers

    Look above, it says "DLC, hefty price for 2 choppers". That didn't even take a few. Pro tip: read thread title.
  9. Nice work, makes sense to me. I want to be penalized for sprinting with sway, but not in the same way for jogging. Current system there is really no advantage to jog, unless you jog less than 175 (is that time?) Wait.....the whole point of jogging is long distance. Also, there needs to be some reference to stance, Variables has some great points concerning it. There still is the unknown factor of the upcoming Marksman DLC. I'm sure there will be some adjust made with that patch, hope getting this point across is not too late.

    13€ DLC, hefty price for 2 choppers

    It never ceases to amaze me, the amount of indignation felt from fans of a game that you can literally waste your life in. Maybe get out and find what 13 EUR gets you. I look at it like I got more than 2 helis, we have features everyone mooned about and no one gets booted from not owning dlc. BI was able to do this because of their 2 year success story. Engine is fine, the processor speed trend of the last five years has not helped them out much.

    13€ DLC, hefty price for 2 choppers

    1. Sling loading 2. Firing from vehicles 3. Advanced FDM If you think missions are not important to DLC and want something to use, this DLC model is for you! Now that is one tough crowd :butbut:
  12. 1. I just don't like the movement if the sway, left right?? what? 2. I would have no problem with max sway after sprinting. 3. The timing of high amounts of sway seems off, needs more variation, plus higher variation with stances. I'm all about creating a longer fire fights, but if weapons sway or high dispersion are achieving longer fire fights the player knows it constantly, achieve with AI or player fear. I like my in game abilities being nerfed, but this just feels wrong, cheap, artificial.
  13. One thing I did years ago in arma2, was turn my headbob back up to default level or maybe even slightly above. When I did this I realized I would do more run walk run walk, so I could see better. I suggest this to anyone, made me a better player. Problem is it makes people sick, so I guess it has a place in the game settings... too bad. The Arma3 headbob seems like a step back in my opinion. :(
  14. Wait what? A3's was vastly improved in this respect, there's plenty of paces. Sprinting is sprinting and doesn't last long, it's get conveyed well in game, which is using it to get to cover, that's really it. I was just thinking about looking into this, great work St. Jimmy. Also, i've got to agree with Bad Benson about the effects of fatigue on sway, and i'd bet many people do too. Hope this gets tweak a bit.
  15. The current system is great, seems realistic and is fun. Seems similar to playing with ace2, without the falling down blackouts. It is easy for alot of people to have trouble realizing how far they just ran though, the game world doesnt always translate. The pace that you need to play with in the current system fits, because going fast will get you killed anyways. If you dont like it, try having a slower pace, youll be better for it, and enjoy the game more. ---------- Post added at 10:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:40 PM ---------- This so true, its also how to have the most fun in arma, and be most effective, forget about your gun for awhile, youll enjoy the game more.
