    He made points, ran tests exposing some flaws. Who exactly are these people who were not taking him seriously because he said "sabot" you?. You being pedantic. is what I could not take seriously. Hopefully they can work something out with regards to the heat rounds on the tank. Did I say that right "tank" or is it tracked weapon assault tomb.

    Is there a reason satchel charges cannot be removed one placed. MINES. why the red triangles for mines show up so far away because you are in a certain squad and they seen them, or a squad member passed it awhile back? Mines need to be more deadly. Only showing up when actually spotted or a mine detector is on one of your units and only friendly units near by acknowledge it not all members from around the map now see the triangle. The triangles should go after your squad leaves a certain radius. I'm unaware if these are all server side settings. But seems it is on all missions I have played.hopefully I am wrong. It should be up to the player to mark it for future avoidance. And if ai go over it hard luck.
  3. If you get bored just discussing getting better performance, jump on and get your hands dirty.

    Arma 3: Community wishes & ideas- DISCUSSION

    No offence dennis. But your wishlist is odd for "us milsim guys". I think you might find what you are looking for on an a life server. Police cars, fire trucks , No female models per say but plenty of guys who go on like a bunch of bitchy mean girls. Firstly from a co op point of view. ai. They see me through smoke ,bushes and when I sneak prone in grass they see me. Visually. For me better mid range textures, sucks that I put grass at ultra and it looks nice till I go out in the open and the rest of the land past the grass texture looks bland like play doh. Kills the otherwise beautiful game. Working ponds/lakes so map modders can make islands that can properly utilize the new divers /submersibles and boats that on many mp missions are just decorative they get very little use. trust for planes like the new heli dlc advance flight model. Meaning no more holding down a key the whole time to keep the plane from stalling on turns. ( darksides post in fixed wing).it is simple yet really good for play.

    MP Game Mode Support Feedback

    I think Fabio has pretty much laid out what bis objectives NEED to be. From now till marksman. If they can get to grips with that list for a start will improve the ground work of the game greatly. Then mess around with,missions like this no offense ment..

    Performance is bad again, BIS enable us to help you

    Niki had you tested the dev branch before 1.34 actual release? ---------- Post added at 21:47 ---------- Previous post was at 21:41 ---------- My tests so far have seen. Single player stable 1.34 an average 5 fps loss. On multiplayer, fps takes a back seat to big increase in dysnc, across a range of mission types and reported by all players involved playing at the time. Really hope the performance going back to 132 levels translates into the stable release.

    New heli dlc performance issues

    I don't know if devs are aware but the new dlc on stable has brought a serious performance drop. Testing has revealed on average 5 fps loss on both single player and multiplayer. There is a big desync issue that has been created. Now I know you rolled back to 132 because of the huge desync issue created by 133. Now heli dlc and 134 has dropped and the desync issue Cleary has not been fully resolved. I have been playing heavily last two days and instantly noticed desync and heavy stuttering occurring across several mission types. Helis and other aircraft all heavily dysnc broken. Players all pointing out floating players at close quarters. Major stuttering while fps are stable. I'd like to know are devs working on it are aware of the desync Fps loss. the sound from the helis is the first obvious giveaway. ---------- Post added at 11:42 ---------- Previous post was at 11:39 ---------- http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?185227-How-to-revert-to-1-32-version

    How to revert to 1.32 version

    I'm aware there are problems with arma multiplayer. But dlc patch has brought a range of other problems, even worse dsync with any aircraft.I'm at 35 fps yet its stuttering like crazy have never had this before and its happening to people I'm playing with.Players floating this patch has without a doubt brought performance 2 steps back. desync and fps loss. As far as I can see this is the only tread on forums about it.

    Legal Violations by CL3 - Citylife 3 Mod

    Iike nod I believe this is down to the original content authors to decide upon.,and deal with accordingly. If they take legal action. City life., or whom ever is in violations will face the consequences. Anyone that was dumb enough to pay to play on one of these servers clearly are there for the taking, and it won't stop with a city life game. that again is their own problem. As already said. This is nothing new. And the problem derives from the people willing to pay creating a reason to do it. It just seems more severe now because the newer members to the arma game are used to being swindled by cod and other such franchises to have a shiny new horse or pink shoes.

    Audio Tweaking (dev branch)

    I find that the new sounds in helis particularly attack ones breaks immersion. As a gunner in the blackfoot can hardly tell cannon is firing or missiles are impacting. All sounds are drowned out by the downdraft. not saying the downdraft winds are bad just need to be a better balance.

    How to revert to 1.32 version

    After playing arma all day. Have noticed that there is something really off about the helis after dlc. As a passenger in a heli on 3rd person. Stuttering and strange un natural flight behavior. Definitely not present in version 1.32 None of the pilots were using afm. All were on default. Didn't look right at all. Need to know has anyone else that flys a lot in arma notice this on mp servers.

    What do you want to see in the expansion?

    I'd like a map similar to the Unnamed Terrain Ukraine. Only has one road but some beautiful work. Small subtle housing community but feels realistic and as if its lived in. Were as ,Altis as big, and sometimes as beautiful as it can be. Just Feels like it is abandoned empty..

    DLC Ads

    Not an ideal test bed. Most people never used the kart dlc in their mp missions . So a lot of people didn't come across it. Or the adds. Making it mostly free bar some adds still not good enough. Same people probably bought arma3 for 25-30 euro in a sale. Have hundreds of hours game time. And still itnot good enough. Put in perspective ,Console gamers happy to part with 70 euro for a game that they get. A weeks worth of gameplay. Or 70 euro for a game and then 15 euro each lousy dlc. For a game that a new version be out same time next year and the cycle starts again .

    DLC Ads

    Could have been. I know personally have seen karts about on radom wasteland never bothered using them. And only when I did one time did I get the advertising. I'd definitely have noticed if it was happening all the time. I will be getting the dlc when I return home this week so won't have any first hand knowledge of the adds and how they are implemented so correct me if I am wrong. Regarding the advertising, if it does spam while in a dlc asset. it should only pop up when people try get in the pilot seat. Or once when they first enter the dlc they have not acquired. Not a none stop spam while they are in it. I personally believe bis has been fair regarding the dlc. But the purpose should be just to make the player aware there is a dlc. Not to try annoy them into buying it.it is counter productive. Instead of making awareness (the purpose of advertising) it just creates animosity.
  18. I too would like better fps not even demanding 60, keeping over 30 and I'd be happy. Personally have seen Dwarden on the mp servers that were set up to gather information and test multiplayer to try get better performance. Hopefully to you this answers ,they're actually trying to fix it.

    General Discussion (dev branch)

    There have been reports that the new dlc patch has caused a drop in fps. Have noted about 5fps in most cases directly related to the new dlc patch overall. Compared to 332. There is a way to go back to legacy build patch 332. Try this for your testing.

    life/rpg mods welcome in arma 3 ?

    Fix the filter. Let people play what they wish. Don't try be micromanage dictators because of Dick head players, every game has em. Have played an Rp server back in arma 1 "life mission without the use of other peoples mods and no permission".. You got people who just wanted to kill others that's fine its natural. That is a server admin issue. When the same players go to a military mission and act like a Dick.again It is a server admin issue . My point being people should get to play what ever interests them more, and play as they wish. Servers themselves dictate what is tolerated . they learn there are other missions and playing styles and enjoy them too with time. When you start trying to control what missions are acceptable based on a poll. You have become apart of the problem not the solution.

    Terrain Improvement (dev branch)

    Been well over a year and 1000 upvotes on the tracker. Seems a lot of effort and passion went into the tread and tracker to highlight how much better the game could look and how badly people wanted it. Has there been a peep from bis regarding this tread or the tracker?

    Firing from vehicles unfinished?

    Just out of curiosity were you on the dev branch at any stage testing or giving feedback on the feature?

    DLC Ads

    Seany do you own battlefield 4? My friends do on console. Do you know how much a pain in the ass it is owning dlc.that I never get to use with my mates, because some of them don't have the dlc. So noneof us bother. It's a pure and other waste of money. My point being this dlc strategy although not perfect for "everyone" ,means you and your mates or clan can still play together till they or have the extra money to spend on a dlc. You are not forced to go find another server or sit out a clan mission , or worse someone who bought the dlc is not forced to only use it on his own in the editor. Surely you can see it is as fair as can be without expecting devs to work for sexual favors?

    Fixed Wing Flight Model (dev branch)

    Second this, annoying for me using keyboard constantly holding trust. Specially when you are hitting keys for lock on, shooting , countermeasures all at same time.... Surprised it has not been implemented.
