  1. I don't play A3 much, well not at all now. But I'm still very much into A2 + all the dlc's. The series has given me more hours of fun than I can remember. A4 (should there be one) will be where I depart from the series if they don't have decent vanilla ai, which I doubt they will. But A3 will be, to many players, what A2 still is to me, a game that has years more play left in it. That is the way I feel about A2, will still be playing in another decade probably, provided I'm still here, that is.
  2. Arma2base.de

    I loved 'Armed Assault.Info', it was a great place for mods, news and stuff. Thanks to @oldbear for having worked on and done that, and it was unfortunate it ended. Now when I go into AA.info, my 'malwarebytes' just pops up a warning, so I tend not to use it as much, I do occasionally, taking care of course, but not much. These are great loses to the series, AH being one of the only hosters now for most mods or large numbers. There are, of course, mods all over the place/internet, but even these are getting fewer. Steam has been good for A3, but I still don't use mods from steam for this series (I don't play A3). I do use steam for other games and it is convenient, but I still like the old way.. Nevermind. @Easyman.. 50kb is pretty slow, lets be honest. :( For anyone else looking, a few maybe to look at: ofpec moddb Kronzkys PMC Nexus Also there is another I got 'kju's' mods from, can't find it now. It may have closed too. I have a HDD with links on to a few others, but you'll have to wait until I use that HDD again, means digging it out of the cupboard.. ;) AH has most of the popular ones there though. Edit: Just thought, I have a few HDD's full of mods for this series, covering all, right back to ofp. Maybe in the future I'll get some on dropbox or somewhere, have to check size limits etc. Something for me to think about. Whatever happened to devheaven !!
  3. Frozen Synapse 2

    Scenario generator now included: This is a great way to plan and execute cqc engagements. Very customisable with pretty good ai.
  4. Frozen Synapse 2

    They said they are going to put in a scenario generator later, which will be very nice indeed. It's a good game.
  5. I played the first Frozen and it was a nice little game. This one I haven't played yet, but I'm going too pick it up this weekend. This guy does a really good series here and I just randomly picked out an episode: The games ai is pretty good by the looks of things. There is plenty of tactical play, but it does take time (so be warned). The first game, even playing the scenarios which I preferred and are not available in this title, were really thought out and quite time consuming, but very rewarding. This game now has a 'long turn' option, which may be useful. In this title you get to play the city as a sort of campaign, its open so you choose your direction. Obviously there is little here in the way of graphics, however there is a lot when it comes to game-play. So check it out if you like CQC and tactical play, in an open world/city setting. Watch this series and you'll get a very good impression of what Frozen Synapse 2 is all about. I spent hours with the first title. This looks better tactically, but less so graphically, but who cares about graphics when good game-play is present. I should add, there is MP mode and you can play several games at a time, a little like chess, with other people. Or just play straight head to head with the one person.
  6. Red Dead Redemption

    Ideally playing it on pc would be my first thought, especially if the port is done by the devs. I'll have to think, probably look around at other titles for console. On the whole I play sandbox type games, so not sure if the console carries many of those. I'll have a look and see. Thanks all.
  7. Red Dead Redemption

    Was the port of gta-v done by Rockstar ? or was it a mod port type thing ? Do you think they may port this to pc then ? @EO Yeah, looks good. Thanks both.
  8. Red Dead Redemption

    I'm going to actual buy a console for this (as no pc release, again). So which one to buy, to have it look nice and run great. Just in 1920x1080 nothing special, but would still like it to look like 1920x1080.. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
  9. Do people still play?

    Yep, a number of groups I know never moved over to A3. Tried it first, didn't like it and stayed with A2 CO. I still play every week, not always in group, but either way I play.
  10. Which mouse do you recommend for ArmA

    I'm using the Roccat NYTH for A2, don't play A3. It a very good customisable mouse. ;)
  11. They have thought it out carefully, the result is quite stunning. I have hundreds of hours in this game, love the style of it. Now after 'Next' planets are harsh, whereas before they were pretty easy to survive, now they can be deadly. I really enjoy the alien planets, they give that true old style sci-fi look and feeling. Just a great game to play. At one stage I thought, ah.. they are pandering to the moaners, but I was wrong. They have really put some effort into this game. It was a great little game when it released, perhaps not for everyone, but some of us. Relaxing and fun. Now it is a great 'big' game, still quite relaxing in places, but bites every now and then. Top marks HG.
  12. This is going to be a great update: 'Next'
  13. Vigor : New game from BI

    BI moved on, but left many of us behind playing their older mil-sim games. A market gone to waste, I feel.. A4: If its a return to mil-sim gaming, I'll buy it. Use the dcs or train sim type path. Have decent content that has a mature price tag. Most mil-sim players understand its a niche market and will gladly pay for content, as and when. Deaf ear's I fear. The game above, is just more of the same... Unfortunately..
  14. If you make them all playable, you can play down the ranks as each dies, little more realistic that way. Or don't you want that ?
  15. downloading and viruses.

    'Malwarebytes Premium', costs me £20 per year and is like a steel door. I use mods for ETS2, anyone that is familiar will know the sites these tend to be distributed from are really bad, but its very hard to get the mods any other way. That said, MB/Premium locks every found 'dodgy' site out for good. Plus I then scan the DL with MBytes and not had a single problem in the years I've used it.
