    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...

    An Invitation

    Well then maybe we could just stick to the non Hinds version, if that is possible. It will be a bit hard for ghost like players moving around. It would be terrible for such accidents to happen. Someone exploding by some unseen force.:) And if I understand correctly TOH:R stuff is if we are using mods or anything? Personally I haven't got any and neither has my friend here but I don't know. You shall know best for these things... That is a great idea indeed. By enhancing the infantry by means of equipping them with heavy weapons a lot could be achieved. I am really looking forward for such a breakthrough. Another breakthrough indeed. Hope that enough players will turn out. Although these clan things is not something that I am quite used to so I would prefer posts and maybe private messages through the TOH forums. Thanks for the tip though.

    An Invitation

    That would be a great idea indeed. More enemy vehicles would really be helpful if enough players are gathered. We could organize an air-assault which will be followed by an extraction so as to take down the remaining hostiles. Maybe we could organize an attack on the building where the convoy starts. That is if there is a possibility to place some hostiles in and around the building. Till now we are three. You, a friend of mine and myself. Personally I have enough skills to fly every helicopter in TOH quite good, whereas my friend is a new player and hasn't got such skill. But I believe that more TOH players will soon come up. Have you got to know any players that would be interested? And as for the time no problem whatsoever. Now sadly I haven't got Hinds since I am not so fond of so sophisticated weapon systems so I can not start a Hinds server. I really don't know if I can even join one. I hope this won't be a big problem. I don't know. Maybe I should buy it. If it was in a CD version I would already have it.
  4. I shall have to agree with the first post on the most part. Not keen on swearing before you know best, at least in the forums,:) but whatever... What I mean is that especially the flight models are way off bounds. Arma 3 should be a game that combines people who are interested in infantry units, tanks and guys who just like piloting airplanes and helicopters. I really thought that, that was what it was about. And now I am disappointed. As an apparent hello fan I expected real flying models on Arma 3 and now I know that there is little chance of such things happening. I really appreciate the different modelers since they are the makers of so many great things but they can't do everything. I mean the game on it's release should have many things, as aforementioned in the first post, that it just hasn't. It really is a shame. The fast rope extractions, the air assaults will all end up like games that might have graphics but are far from any kind of sim...:confused:

    Helicopters don't fly?

    Sorry but no solution seems to come from this thread. Maybe you should just contact with Bohemia Interactive directly so as to find a solution.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    Now that is disappointing indeed. Why would Bohemia Interactive leave all of these things behind? It is supposed to be something like a simulator!?!? And if not the TOH flight models entirely, fast-roping? Especially fast roping is a key to quick extractions and so many more. It can not be dismissed like that. It ruins much of the fun. It is ARMA 3. I used to regard it more highly... I mean come on... Nevertheless I still hope that something, even a later mod release, will patch things up. There are some experienced programmers out there. You can never know, can you?
  7. Not to mention. Glad to help!:)
  8. Well normally you shall have to "fix" your controls. What I am saying is that you must tell the game what it should do for example when you increase the throttle. That should be possible by going to the controls section. You should find where it says collective raise [analogue] and collective lower[analogue]. Then you should click on it and then increase or decrease the throttle on your controller. The collective raise [analogue] is for increasing the throttle and the later is for decreasing the throttle. That should do it. Then you should do the same thing for the rudder pedals. Go to right pedal. Click on it and then press your right pedal on your controller. Go the the left pedal. Click on it and press your left pedal on your controller. And that is just it. While you are doing all these things you shall see, after you have for example pressed your right pedal, some phrase appear, like Z axis, on the right window. That should mean that you have achieved your goal. Hope this helped because this is how you work on Take on Helicopters. I haven't got Arma 3. But since it is from the same company it should work fine.:) P.S. Currently the flight models of Arma 3 are far from realistic sadly. The Take on Helicopters flying models, a game which is 100% a sim, might be installed later on by a mod of some sort. Nevertheless I suppose that Arma 3 will be a great game in general.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    Good news then. We have something to hope for... Fingers crossed.

    Arma 3-TOH similarities

    Too bad. I really hoped that Arma 3 would be a real military simulator... Nevertheless thanks for the prompt reply. Good to hear that there are other hello-fan guys out there. Again thanks for the prompt reply. Hope that some kind of patch will be later released.
  11. Willing to say that an astonishing job has been taken place in this thread for so much time. Congratulations to you all!:cool: Now I am aware that there has been a mention to multiplayer missions but that it was put aside due to "technical" difficulties. And no unfortunately I can by no means help in this, rather than producing some ideas and testing some missions that is... But that was a really long time ago and I would like to know if there have been any improvements or breakthroughs. Currently I have persuaded some guys to buy TOH and go online but after playing the same missions a dozen times they are kind of bored. And for that reason they won't play as often as they did. Logical if you ask me especially when they prefer to play as gunners or actively participate in the ground assault. Doing the same thing again and again is not any more as thrilling. And yes there have been other missions made but they require Arma 2 and it's expansions something which I say is kind of unacceptable. I believe there should be some enhancement of TOH by some content but having to buy such games is ridiculous. Not that they ain't good but why buy a game that you will never play just to take some of it's contents? Especially when the TOH flight models are not used in Arma?!?! And rearmed most certainly unlocks a wide variety of mission ideas which can have so much to offer. Air assaults. Taking over buildings and compounds. Attacking oil rigs which have been occupied by terrorists and so many more... Hope something will eventually take place. Have a nice landing.:)

    Helicopters don't fly?

    Now would you mind if you informed us, which controller you are using? I mean this is really bizarre and I imagine it very frustrating. Personally I have faced some similar problems but only at the point when I was landing. These were some hysterical and unacceptable landings. You know. Descending with just 2-3 m/s and let's say a top of 5 m/s as an forward airspeed and the helicopter acting really wildly. It just banked to the right, always to the right, and turned upside-down although my efforts to stabilize it. But these two, maybe three, incidents occurred to me after some gunfight and when I was landing at the dessert so these could be it.

    Helicopters don't fly?

    Maybe you should start questioning your controller since you are the first one to report such a problem. It could be not compatible. Does it work with other games such as in Arma? Check the sensitivity. Lessen the dead zone all of which are located at Settings, Controls, Controllers, choose your controller, alter the settings. For instance by completely reducing the dead zone then you will have more control over the throttle. By altering the sensitivity then the controlling will be much easier and even more realistic. You should try reducing it by maybe 50% more. Try different helicopters in the free flight section. Do all of them act like crazy?
  14. A piece of advise would be to send an email to Bohemia Interactive directly. Not sure if someone can help you in the forums. This is a delicate issue. Just trying to help.:)
  15. JohnKalo

    Helicopters don't fly?

    Not sure how to start here but what came to mind first would be that Arma flying and TOH flying are totally different stuff. TOH is a realistic helicopter simulator whereas Arma is a military simulator. Now of course what you have described is unacceptable if there is no warning, at all. And when do this things actually occur? At takeoff or simply while you are flying around? Because in higher difficulties for example at takeoffs the helicopter tends to spin due to it's back rotor. But maybe you are already aware of that since you have studied helicopter physics. And it really needs some practice to get used to it. Then there is the game malfunctioning which could be due to corrupted files or a corrupted installation process. If you had no serious progress in the game then you should re-install the game. Or just repair it. Hope to see you online! Best of Luck!
  16. I would like to make a simple question please. Is there a way to change the time of Shapur_Revisited? I mean I have tried it myself but when I try to upload a mission in the editor no mission seems to appear. I would really like to try this mission at night. It already has night vision so I believe that it won't be so difficult to alter the time. And also is there a way to make the AI more incapable of shooting at me directly since they haven't got night vision? Or maybe place some lights on the different sectors? So as to make things more realistic. It would really be great.

    G940 Joystick problems

    A very bewildering problem indeed. Maybe you should consult Logiteck itself to check if G940 is fully compatible with all pc simulator games. Or it could be that TOH is not able to support "three" controllers at the same time. A breakthrough would be if someone with a similar controller reported if such a problem occurs. Best of Luck.
  18. I believe that the APU is the alternative for the Starters in some way. It is true that the training doesn't cover the heavy chopper sufficiently but if you want to practice try the free flight. If you want to be sure about the staring procedure press engines on automatically. In this way I believe you will be able to pinpoint the exact steps since they are are stated in written form at the bottom of the screen as they occur.
  19. To start with, when you start the mission the person on the radio also informs you of the direction of the boat, if I recall correctly. So you will have a good idea of where the vessel is heading and where you should search. Now as you can see on the map some of the boats that are located in the search area are coast guard vessels that are supposed to be helping you. They are supposed to block the "hostile" vessel. As for how you will be able to find the correct boat there is one simple fact. Once you come close to the right one well I can not say what will happen exactly since it would be a spoiler but something will. You will not be able not to recognize it. Also this particular boat is going to move at a higher speed than the other. Furthermore it has never occurred to me that a vessel escapes from the search area. It is always there. Fly fast and low and you should be alright. Best of Luck!:)

    Saitek X65F controller

    Does the game recognize your controller when you go to Settings, Controls, Controllers? In that case you will most likely be able to use your controller with some extra adjustments.

    MP Combat Rescue

    Thanks for the heads up. Now maybe I will try checking if the free version is sufficient. I haven't got it installed or downloaded but maybe I will. It is a shame not to be able to play such missions. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A question please. If I have Arma 2 free version will the 1.06 patch work and combine Arma 2 with Take on Helicopters? I would really appreciate a prompt reply.:) If this is possible then I will be able to play this mission at last, along with another one too.
  22. Well no such thing has ever occurred in my game-play. All the sounds worked perfectly on the training as well as on the career. As for the Arma 2 voices you hear maybe it has something to do with the patch that combines the two games, that is if you have installed the patch of course. If that is the case maybe you could inactivate the patch from the mod menu and then check if the strange voices take place. If you haven't installed the patch try installing it. Also maybe the TOH folders are mixed with the Arma 2 ones somehow and you have this mess. Best Luck!:)

    MP Combat Rescue

    I really haven't got Operation Arrowhead but there doesn't seem to be any requirement as such in the first post. Is it that obvious that I should have acquired it? Thanks for the reply but maybe Polymorph will be the only one to answer my issue more directly. And sadly he or she hasn't. (Who can possibly know?):( I really don't know. Has it worked on your pc?

    MP Combat Rescue

    I would really like to play this most promising mission but unfortunately it seems to have a problem of some sort. It states "You can not play/edit this mission. It is dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted.takistan." :confused: I have only got Rearmed but according to this thread there is no serious problem whatsoever. My actions were that I placed the content of the TOH folder on my own mission folder. And another issue may be that I see the mission twice in-game, when I go to the Challenges section. Am I doing something wrong or is it some content that is missing from the mission's downloadable content? Thanks in advance. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Come on guys isn't there anyone else encountering the same problem? I would really like to know.:)
  25. Welcome to the forums. Well what you could try is re-downloading the demo so as to check if their was any file corruption in the downloading procedure. Also see if all the requirements are met. The windows are ok but I am not aware if the rest follows. If your pc has got no such problems with other games then probably it is the demo to blame. I will be sure to look at your problem more thoroughly as soon as I can. Hope you finally buy this great game. Best Luck. :)
