  1. I know that this really is an old thread since it goes a year back but I would like to suggest some improvements. I have personally played this specific mission a dozen times and it is still great fun, playing with friends but what we would like to see would be some night action. We would really appreciate a release with the time altered so as to use night vision. I mean we have already got night vision goggles. Another thing would be fast-roping. Since it exists in TOH and it is something unique, Arma hasn't, why not implement it here. Off course I really don't know how much complicated this is. I hope it won't be a great burden. It would really be an enhancement!

    Take On Arma

    I believe it all comes down to the flight models. That is the most difficult part and I am not sure which will be the way to battle this issue.
  3. Well what has been bothering me is that although we are dealing with a great game indeed there don't seem to be enough missions. I mean there are some really astonishing ones but they are just a few and some of them require OA something which many of us have not acquired, myself included. So I now it is not simple but it would really be great if someone with the required skills designed simple missions which do NOT require OA or Hinds. It would really be great. I mean there is an oil rig map for instance that has never been used. Why not make a mission of troop transportation on an oil rig captured by terrorists? It would be a great idea. Or just make some simple attack on an enemy building with helicopters and troops. Now that there are more players online it would be great if we would give them some even more motives. And if required I would really like to test mission if it would help. Hope more missions eventually appear! Many thanks to guys who have already spent time and have released some missions! Any other mission suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Awaiting progress.:cool: -------------------------------------------------------------------EDITED-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that is a shame indeed. As it seems there ain't much progress. Anybody, with even the slightest skills, can't you help upgrade this game? There has been a great while when nothing new has occurred. I believe that there should be an extra mission pack for this game. Why leave it aside? We should try to keep this game alive. Convoy Attack, Shapur Revisited, all great missions which have caused much fun. Can't there be more? Even the same ones with just some slightest changes? The TOH supporters would really like to hear reports of some missions just in their first stages. Isn't there anything?

    Any new missions?

    A nice fact then. I hope that more missions are finally going to implement this element. Shapur Revisited for example sadly hasn't got fast roping.

    Any new missions?

    I wonder why these scripts haven't being used yet. Whatever maybe in the near future. Too bad. Why make an oil rig map with the only structure being an oil rig and let it so.... simple?

    Any new missions?

    Thanks mate! Now that is astonishing. I hope you guys can understand what we have here. Fast roping isn't even available in Arma 3!!! Having something like this will greatly enhance how unique this game is!!! Best of Luck with your creations!!!
  7. Can't wait to try it out!!! Thanks for spending time doing this!!! :):):)

    AI, other issues

    ONLY? Man 180 hours is some 7 DAYS!?!?!? But whatever.:) I know what you mean. The flight models are unacceptable. There has been some discussion here: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?161262-Arma-3-TOH-similarities But the progress is belittling unfortunately. Something very disappointing to say the least. The armor is too unacceptable. By these elements, the different armies would by no means have choppers. It would be a waste of money and human lives. I mean I am a great fan of TOH where things are way better. The flight models are realistic and the damage but still, after years of experience,, no bragging,, handling a light helicopter in the battlefield is extremely difficult. That is because there us no bullet proof glass, which means that every soldier in the area can bring the chopper down.

    Take On Arma

    Something we are all expecting for.... Adding new helicopters via a DLC would also mean some more missions and a great enhancement in multiplayer action by combining these great helicopters with all of the TOH elements. I mean I would really like to fly a Chinook. It should be something unique and an astonishing experience indeed. The Hinds was very good and exceptional but it was just for a portion of the TOH players. it had some extremely advanced weapon systems and you should be really into it to try it. And also there was no campaign as far as I know. But ok. That is not so stressing. FSX is not a helicopter game but it has got a lot of helicopters. Something which should be done here with the appropriate flight models and graphics. But after the TOH Hinds there wasn't any other TOH release. Something I believe was due to Arma 3 by means of shortages in man power. There have been a lot of troubleshooting threads there and a lot of work to be done. Something that I firmly believe shouldn't mean no more upgrades for TOH but sadly that seems to be happening. In fact even the moderators of these forums aren't so active. I mean ok there aren't so many posts but you know... Some clue of if there will be any other TOH upgrade.

    Any new missions?

    Some good news we have got here. After much time there really seems to be some future progress to take place. Taz9123 good luck with your scripting and I hope that you will soon be able to build missions, even simple ones. The majority of us know nothing about scripting so you are already having a great advantage. Now I would like to ask you something please. Can fast roping occur in multiplayer by online players?
  11. Well there has been some discussion a while ago about adding some weapons to TOH. I have managed to find a way of accomplishing this goal without extra funds. Everything happened because I wanted to play missions with extra weapons such as Convoy_Attack or Shapur_Revisited_100. I found it a bit off to buy Arma 2 OA so as just to take some of it's weapons since I am not interested in the game so I made do with what I had. The steps are quite simple and I would like all players of TOH to have access to them. What you do is download Arma 2 free version and install it following the instructions. After this is done you should go to the game directory: ...\\Program Files\\Bohemia Interactive\\Arma 2 free version\\Addons. There you shall find some specific files. These are: Ca.pbo, Weapons.pbo, Weapons2.pbo, sounds.pbo. Just copy these to your TOH addons folder and there you have it. The weapons shall be available for missions. TOH will state some errors but it will not affect your game-play by any way. Hope this helped. Any posts with other "suggestions" or experiences would be much appreciated.

    Wont Install Game

    Well I looked at your issue a bot more thoroughly and the CD seems to be very problematic. I mean look at the installation procedure. Mine took five to ten minutes. And as it seems you won't be able to fix this issue alone and since there is no support you should buy the English version. Send them a request, Bohemia Interactive, for an exchange. Give them the German version and take an English one. By this way everyone will be ok. And if all works out TOH will give you the unique flight experience that you always wanted, that is for sure.
  13. JohnKalo

    Helicopters don't fly?

    NO problem. Great news these are. And now that you can play TOH take a look at this one: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?161548-An-Invitation Hope you would like to join or whoever.

    Wont Install Game

    Well it must be the german version since in other versions nothing as such has occurred. And something else if you get it installed by any means, you should first apply the patches and then play TOH. That could be the reason for the campaign not working.

    Overhauling Air Power in the Arma 3

    I wish that this would be the only thing unrealistic about helicopters. No flight models, no fast roping, and so many more. That would be great since there would also be more team work when multiplayer gets involved. But that would also mean that smart enough AI should be established for single player functions.
  16. JohnKalo

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    Sad sad sad. Well then maybe Bohemia Interactive could transfer some missions from Arma 3 to TOH after they make them compatible. Even without all the Arma 3 content. It would act as a painkiller.:)

    Oups. Sorry. I thought that you sent these emails just before you posted so. Big mistake. Yes in that case it is unacceptable.
  18. JohnKalo

    Well as for the support you should have to wait some time to have a response. There are dozens if not hundreds of emails being involved. This goes on and on for every company. It is logical though, in a sense.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    Thanks but I believe that this is too much. I haven't got that much time.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    It must be really difficult if not plainly impossible sadly to find a specific post in the Arma forums. It's like a needle in a haystack. Nicely played. So there was specific and accurate reports of the TOH flight models being in Arma 3. Now that is some piece of information that I was neither aware about. Thanks for the heads up RushHour.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    That is so true. I mean, I am a TOH fanatic and I have played the campaign twice and it's challenges and multiplayer missions more than a dozen times but having also played Arma 2 OA, demo, too many differences have come up. Arma 2 OA is by no means realistic compared to TOH. When you fly in TOH there are so many more flight effects that you must consider. And if you get used to it flying in TOH, OA will be really frustrating. My point is that a helicopter pilot shall need some serious experience in order to participate in Arma 2,3 missions without crashing. It is hard to participate in fast extractions, fast roping and air assaults effectively. But I believe that there are enough TOH pilots to fill this gap. Well Rearmed did indeed give TOH players more missions but it's content alone, without OA, is not so sufficient. Not so many weapons or vehicles sadly. But it still is great fun. I really don't know how these things work exactly with Arma games development. In another thread some said that moders could be able to transfer the TOH flight models to Arma 3 whereas others said to forget all about it. Frustrating. Just so frustrating.

    An Invitation

    Just perfect. Really looking forward for the release of this mission. And I hope that enough players will be gathered. It should be pretty cool. You know helicopters taking heavy fire and autorotating to the ground and emergency evacs being necessary. Really astonishing. ---------------------------------------------------------------EDIT-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now there was a breakthrough. I have managed through some add-ons to have access to specific weapons. -M4A1 RCO M203 -M16A4 Aimpoint -M249 SAW -DMR marksman rifle -M136 AT launcher I shall explain the add-ons later in another thread so for other players to participate. So if you want to include these weapons in the mission it will be ok.
  23. So I have come to realize that more guys are buying TOH and there is now some serious action on the TOH servers. This fact has produced much fun and so why not try to have a wider experience? What I mean is that we could arrange a time and date and go online to play a coop mission. My suggestion is Co12_Shapur_Revisited_100. I know that there is some kind of issue as to the re-spawning of this mission but we can sort things out. We can gather up and organize a serious mission. The reason for choosing this mission is because the players that haven't got much skill when it comes to helicopters can be gunners or participate in the ground assault. We need all the help we can get. This mission takes about an hour and a half so it is not too long and we could even record it to upload it and attract even more fellows to our community. It would be something special and maybe unique. Now as for the time and date we can sort things out by visiting this site.......................... http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx ......................................... We can have up to 12 players which is very good in my opinion. And no we don't have to be elite. Mistakes tend to happen sometimes... So if anybody is interested in such a thing I would really appreciate it if they posted it here. Let's have some fun!:cool:

    An Invitation

    I was a bit off there. And yes unfortunately I haven't got A2CO. It crossed my mind to buy it, but buy it just for some of it's content? I am not at all interested in playing this game since after downloading the Arma 2 OA demo I didn't find it worthwhile. And also without the flight models piloting is not an option. I tried but I was way disappointed. And as for the equipment I think that we can use Ak-47s, M14s, pistols, grenades, smoke bombs, some rocket propelled grenades and more. I know that they ain't as much as in Arma but whatever. I tried to transfer the weapons from Arma 2OA demo to TOH with the Rearmed patch but nothing occurred. Is there a way to combine the two games without having to buy the Arma one? So that I can have the weapons at least? Looking forward to play the updated Convoy Attack version.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    I totally agree. New features and maybe graphics. Nothing more. Really hope that such a thing will eventually be proven... A dream indeed...
