Patch 1.24 (Bootcamp Update) Feedback in ARMA 3 - GENERAL Posted July 20, 2014 Had a chat with a good friend after a long time and he expressed how dissapointed he was with Arma update 1.24. He was on vacation and just played some few hours and intantly contacted me to express his sadness about the game development. His computer knowledge is limited but he still plays the game because some friends helped him to set it up. Now for the concern , all his mods are without sounds. Now unfortunately I don't have the time to explain what BI did with the sounds. What I try to say is that a lot of people have basic knowledge in computer gaming and english. I believe the biggest "disaster" are for people like my friend and now they have a broken game without no clue what to do next. Now I will probably help my friend with the issues and try to update the mods when the configs are done, but think about other players that don't have the opportunity to receive assistance from someone. With that said I really hope the change in the sound engine is worth all the frustration and disappointment. Have encountered this myself . It takes a lot of time helping others out. This is why that arma bis launcher needs to be more of a focus point for bis. They want to help new players buy arma and get addicted. Having a proper bis launcher to make all servers available to even a computer noob is the way I can't stress it enough. With communities that pay server bills every month and would like more player base, players that don't know arma or have computer knowledge. The launcher is the key to open up all of armas potential. . To be fair The sound mod breakage could not be helped it was outlined by bis months ago and again. Good Mod men have worked on it "lord jarhead" deserves his credit. Again like I said a launcher would have made such a change a lot less problematic. ---------- Post added at 12:34 ---------- Previous post was at 12:30 ---------- Is really necessary to ridicule the option you do not favoritize?For me the question is: does the current system lead to unrealistically accurate fire? The pre 1.24 system clearly did. Can you imagine better solution to that problem? I play co op. Ai now has aimbot and shooting any stance over players. What is the alternative? Make the ai even stupider? Co op people can no longer have fun engaging games. This new fatigue sway system only serves people who fight prone all the time with grass off. Or in urban combat specific design missions. People simply want it toned down. Not removed. ---------- Post added at 12:35 ---------- Previous post was at 12:34 ---------- It would have been fairer to tone it down now. And add option to have it hardcore like it is? That way Everyone is happy. It's not that difficult.
