    Make Arma Not War - Winners

    I can assure you it was the correct mission file chap.
  2. I'm locking this now, I don't know why it was split off. Dear Seba, I'm very sorry to say that we are going to have to disappoint you, we aren't including TPWCAS and VTS Weapon Resting in the engine. We sadly decided to go with our own implementation which I fear may be superior. I also question your scientific method. If I catch you making posts that I see as goading developers or staff from Bohemia Interactive on our own forums, you will sat on the naughty step permanently.
  3. Hi everyone, Due to some 3rd Party music being used in the Altis Fallout, sadly we have no option but to disqualify this entry in the Singleplayer category. As such the next highest voted mission will take it's place, this being "Codename Leonardo".

    Hi Anthariel, I'm really sorry, this is my fault I didn't pass it on. I passed your more recent report on, I'm really sorry it has been added to the list now.

  6. Locking post, also please raise this with a forum moderator or staff member directly, rather than making tetchy posts to the forum.

    Legal violations by A3L: Arma 3 life

    I beg to differ, every server that is seen to be breaking the EULA is pursued. Firstly no, I'm asking member's of the forum community to justify their accusations. Now at the time, they said they had stated they had ceased after looking looking there wasn't evidence to suggest that they were. Sadly I have to work under the presumption of innocence, so I was asking for people to show their evidence, to prove my assumption that they had stopped, wrong.

    I'm sorry I'm not able to give exact legal advice however licensing is within the rights of the author (provided you adhere to all the licenses of the tools you used to make your work).

    I'm sorry I'm not able to give exact legal advise however licensing is fully within the rights of the author (provided you adhere to all the licenses of the stuff you used to make your work).

    Right I've dolled out my first infraction, keep it civil.

    I know there has but it has been in a significant minority compared to the vast amount of assertions based on rumour, I intend on redressing that balance.

    Legal violations by A3L: Arma 3 life

    Right I've tried, I'm at my absolute wit's end, anyone else that posts unsubstantiated claims without ABSOLUTE 100% proof is going to be dolled out infractions and going to the naughty step and be given a time out... Think before posting, ask yourself, "Is there any way this does not show complete and absolute complicity or could be false?". If the answer is yes to any of that DO NOT POST, if you think it's relevant and you have proof pm me. I know this is the internet but we are going to discuss this as adults should do, based on reasoning and facts. PS: Thank you to the people who have been trying to push for evidence, reasoning and onus probandi.

    No you didn't, the only thing that shows is that they receive a large amount of donations. Reread what I said, I asked for some very specific things in a quite specific manner, not just suggestions or coincidence, absolute proof.

    You can tell me all you bloody want, you all need to stop just saying it and prove it beyond reasonable doubt. Get together, collect evidence, give me an ABSOLUTE rock solid case showing, that you can pay to be guaranteed a spot on their server, give me numbers, statistics, facts, everything, something I can run with. Now you guys give me that in a coherent, complete, fact based (with evidence that cannot be questioned), document to matt.lightfoot@bistudio.com and I'll do everything I possibly can, if they are breaking the EULA. I can't act on other people's copyrights nor can I advise them on what to do, they need to pursue it themselves.

    The copyrights of those content creators it's up to them to enforce, we can't do anything, the copyright isn't ours

    I numbered your assertions so I can better respond to them; 1. The tools EULA is about commercial usage 2. We don't own the copyright to other games, so we can't do anything. 3. We aren't the copyright holders, it is up to them to take action themselves. 4. What are you basing this off?, I'm presuming by your use of the words "Most likely", you haven't passed the bar, please read what I'm saying and listen, this boils down to two key facts; - We aren't the copyright holders of tonic's work or other modders, they need to take action themselves rather than getting us to, we simply cannot, with any good grounding. - We tackled them charging for access, now as far as I'm aware this has been ceased. 5. That is between those companies and the Arma 3 Life team.

    You seem to be missing the key point here, we can't take legal steps, it's up to the LEGAL copyright holders of the content to pursue it, whether it be tonic or whom ever. We also can't offer legal advice, the most I can say is that it's up to the legal owners to pursue, we can't do that for them.

    Twitch Ban Appeal

    I've spoken with the moderator who banned you, he said you were banned due to arguing with others, he is happy for you to be unbanned just don't break Wheaton's law in future please.

    So what punishment is just and enforceable without a court order. This question is rhetorical, everyone will have different opinions I'm sure. So right now this issue is closed in my eyes it's resolved.

    Now I dealt with that, I spoke to Caiden, Zanazza and Mike Baxter. After leaving that initial conversation Mike then messaged me saying they had removed the pay to enter. Now as for money it would be yet another minefield, one that probably would require some form of legal action which we will reserve for when the situation requires it. No, I'm not going to stage a witch hunt, if they break the forum rules then they will be banned. We have dealt with it with an appropriate response. Banning them from the forums wouldn't achieve much currently. ---------- Post added at 09:37 ---------- Previous post was at 09:35 ---------- They aren't breaking the Bohemia EULA any more, after they have stopped charging for access to their server.

    If you have any other questions let me know, I'll try my best to answer them with my non-legal mind

    They will own the copyright on the script and if they use the tools to create their own texture then they will own the copyright of the texture.

    We have enforced the ones we can, which is them charging for access, if you have evidence they are still doing this then contact me direct - matt.lightfoot@bistudio.com We can't act on copyright owners behalf, it would have no legal grounding, it would be a waste of our time and money. Content creators need to action this themselves. As above we legally can't act on a content creators behalf as they are the copyright owner of their work and as such they need to pursue it themselves. The charging for access has already been resolved, unless you have evidence otherwise? This is up to you content creators to deal with, send them cease and desists, if they don't respond, go to their server hosters, domain providers, paypal, youtube, facebook etc. Do you have evidence of this continuing today if so please contact me in confidence at matt.lightfoot@bistudio.com So what can we do? You give me a legally grounded and sustainable solution man power wise and I'm all ears. This was described to me using the example of Microsoft Excel, if MS used the same clause, any table you create within that Excel program is your copyright, if you use the Excel program to make a derived version of excel then that would belong to MS.
  25. Right ok so now the moderators have dolled out the infractions, now there is a large amount of issues people have raised so I'll address a few; 1. Regarding people using your content without your consent this is something you need to tackle between your teams like gentlemen and ladies. Not throwing around wild accusations on the forums, we can't and won't investigate all claims of he/she stole my things. You need to contact them directly to resolve this. 2. The topic isn't going to be deleted. 3. Charging for in-game items/server access - This is something we have been discussing for a while and is something we are looking at but currently the rule is that you aren't able to charge for access to a server or for ingame content. I have spoken to the team behind A3L and I believe they have stopped this now. 4. People who want to use this forum for breaking Wheaton's law will be removed. 5. Anyone has an issue with what the moderators have done please contact me directly via e-mail at matt.lightfoot@bistudio.com
