  1. 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.
  2. Ah, I see. Should have read up on it a little further back. ;) Are you lads running any mods ?
  3. The effect is o.k. If you have a bright light at night there is a certain amount of dazzle to your eyes, the game reflects that. This is why the terrain darkens a little. If you wore n/g they would white-out (green-out;)), more or less, its what happens.
  4. Maverics Proving Grounds

    I'm of the opposite opinion. If A4 was to be like this, then the only choice is to put MP first and scrub ai, decent content and game-play options altogether, which is the way gaming is going, unfortunately. What you tend to end up with, when games are this open to MP (but look pretty), is the same type of game-play.. Boring and dull. Many groups have the right balance, and when I say groups, I mean those using ai, a varied amount of content and full terrains, within their gameplay. I'd much rather less graphically and much more game-play wise for the future. This is partly what A3 struggles with, ai is all but forgotten, other than keeping it ticking over in a 'fairly' bad way. There is brilliant ai out there in mod form, that devs won't/can't use, because rightly or wrongly they see performance issues, which means less sales. Obviously they have to look at the much broader player base. So its easier perhaps, just to give a pretty map and a little content, then leave the players to it. That's great, but it gives nothing to SP or groups that have a more indepth style game-play. Just imo.
  5. Super Map

    OFP/Arma: Ace team (I think), did all the ofp islands into one world (IIRC), called 'ofp world' novel title, but too the point. That was for Arma IIRC. I think that lacked the desert island, although I could be wrong, its been a while since I looked at it. Regards Arma 2, not sure there are any released, 'multi' island maps. Can't think of any private ones I've seen/heard of either, but there may be some. There are some huge terrains around, 'snakeman' has done a few, plus some others, lots of private ones (groups). But I think you'll be out of luck finding some, AH may be a place to look plus google. I found a sci-fi set of worlds a while back from google, wasn't really looking for it, was looking for something else Arma related. It is sometimes quite surprising what you come across. PMC also has a site/forum that will link some terrains, just look for snakeman or pmc here on the forums. If your thinking of looking at ofp world (mentioned above), and want to play it in A2, you'll also need 'caa1', perhaps some others too. Its been a long time since I loaded it up.
  6. AI Driving - Feedback topic

    Optimist. ;) not idiot.
  7. Arma 4 a look to the future

    I know, Enfusion. My only real problem with Arma and even A4, should there be one, is... Since BI decided the game needed Steam. I've bought a crap load of.. well.. crap.. If I have to wait around for A4 on Steam, I may just end up a 'video gamer'.. Which wasn't really my intention. I was more a hobbyist, with at least some taste, I thought..
  8. Yes, it looks fantastic.. Stunning even. __ The next part is nonsense.. But its fish, isn't it. ;) I had a goldfish once, when I was very young. I would sit for ages just watching it swim around in the bowl. After a while I got bored and got on with something else. I think the fish got bored too.. It died.. Sad, but true. (this short story has nothing to do with the game of course, but watching that, just reminded me about it) __
  9. I wish I liked underwater stuff, because your right, this looks to be one hell of a good game. Still, underwater just isn't my thing.. :(
  10. I love BOMF but need Help

    Am I missing something.. What's BOMSF ?
  11. Angels fall first - Early Access

    I tried this game a good while back. Its not a bad game. That said, I didn't play it for long, but that of course is probably me, not the game. ;)
  12. My sons into milsims too.. Mind you, he's 37 this year..
  13. Headless Client for SinglePlayer???

    Not really no. Just know your systems limits. All players have a limit based on their own system. AI will drain your system quite a lot, if you want intelligent AI. I know players use HC for MP, it helps. But for SP, with the system you have, I'd say its not really needed. Just experiment, you'll find the limits pretty quickly. ;) Use cache scripts/mods, although I think you can do that in A3 using the already available tools in the editor (not sure, I don't play A3 much now), you could do that earlier in the alpha build IIRC. So just to clarify.. You don't need to meet 500 ai, all at once. :)
  14. Game Freezes And Reboots Pc

    Are you sure your pc hasn't reverted back to your onboard graphics card, after the gpu change ie; not the 1060. The one that came standard with the pc, not as an extra, gpu wise. Because I can't think of a reason why it would close down.
