    Can i change the launcher executable ??

    In your Steam Library, right click on Arma 3 then pick Properties. Under 'Beta', 'Beta participation', pick the profiling build. The Launcher will update it and switch to it on next startup.

    Setting up PC Server

    Maybe your provider is not allowing those ports?

    How To Make Files All Lower Case

    I run this bash script inside my mods folder: #!/bin/bash depth=0 for x in $(find . -type d | sed "s/[^/]//g") do if [ ${depth} -lt ${#x} ] then let depth=${#x} fi done echo "the depth is ${depth}" for ((i=1;i<=${depth};i++)) do for x in $(find . -maxdepth $i | grep [A-Z]) do mv $x $(echo $x | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z') done done Works for me. My server is a Ubuntu server with LinuxGSM.

    Looking for PVE CO-OP servers

    Hello, I run a private server with some family and friends, on my own dedicated machine. We run Liberation, currently on the Lythium map. Not sure if you are familiar with it, it's a CTI, coop against AI. We are not hardcore milsim, but we do run some mods, like ACE, RHS, sound and effects mods, and such. We are in the NA/eastern time zone. PM me if you think you would be interested in joining us.

    Disable TacticalView

    Here, it says that 3rd person view must be enabled: https://community.bohemia.net/wiki/Arma_3:_Field_Manual_-_View Then there is this:

    Exile bikey/bisign problem!

    Is the version of the @ExileMod on your server updated to the newest one? If your client is updated, but the server isn't, then the server will not let you join.

    smoke particles fail

    Yes, you are misunderstanding what he means 🙂 . Start the game, go to 'Tutorials' menu, at the top, 'VIRTUAL ARSENAL'. It is part of Arma, not any mission. I haven't tried this myself as I don't have/haven't seen, this issue.

    I freeze everytime

    I started playing with a milsim group that used quite a few mods, and my computer would freeze, requiring a reboot. It would seem to happen at random times. I upgraded from a 4gb gpu to a 8gb gpu and it never crashed after that.
  9. I had hayfever since I was a kid. I started eating local, unpasteurized honey. After a year, it went away. I tried shots before and didn't work for me. Been good for probably 8 years or so.

    AI not working

    I had the same issue too, with controlling AI, also on the performance profiling build. Was driving me crazy! The v9 build seemed to be ok, but I also switched back to main branch and is all good again!

    I cannot Join any servers in ARMA 3

    Do you have a 'Enoch' folder in your Arma 3 install folder? How about a 'Contact' folder? When I join that server, with no mods or DLC's selected, I have a lot more 'yes' in the DLC's in my report: Maybe you need APEX to play on that server?

    2.06 Update messing with TrackIR5.

    If you have access to a 3d printer, you could print a new and/or improved one. Search yeggi.com for 'trackir clip' and you will find some. Here is one that uses batteries to get rid of the power cord: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4633131

    Blackscreen on launch, have to force close

    I have played Arma 3 for years. A little over a year ago, it started black screen crashing on me, at random times. I replaced my older GPU with a newer one and it never happened again. My new card is not the newest card around, but I went from 3gb to 8gb vram and it never happened again.

    Arma 3 Hard locking my pc

    Arma started crashing for me after I joined a milsim clan that used a lot of mods. Would just get a black screen, had to hard boot computer. I upgraded from a 280X gpu to a RX580 and never had that problem again. I think it was running out of vram. The RX580 is not that new, but went from 3gb to 8gb of vram.

    Horrible performance with AMD CPU

    Buy a FX 8xxx series cpu like warlord554 said. Can probably get a 4.0 ghz one for about $100, then u don't need new mb or ram.

    Any old farts playing Arma 3?

    51 years young here! Atari 2600 to Atari 400 to Atari 520ST. Added a memory board to it to bump ram up to 2.5 mb! Even built a programmable voice synthesizer from plans in a magazine. Bought a 1040ST and linked them together with the printer ports so me and my brother could play 'Falcon 1.0' . Still remember our first dogfight, coming head-on at each other, cannons blazing!! Those were the days! Then moved over to the dark side, (PC with Win 95), Apache, Air Warrior on AOL... I digress.
  18. Sure, just need to clean it up a bit. I'll let you know when its ready.
  19. I created a couple scripts: https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/157177-preview-release-nimitz-for-arma3/?p=2821530 The 'Stations' script uses some signs that teleports you to those spots on the ship.

    ARMA3 and Opentrack

    I use FTNoIR with my DIY 3 LED and PS3 Eye Cam and seems to work fine. Am I missing something here? :mellow: Thanks,
  21. Burying my father today. Although not a military man per se, he always was fascinated with the 2 world wars, and me and my brother remember our dad telling stories when we were kids. My grandfather was a Veteran of WWI. I was wondering if anyone has scripts that I could use, in the Arma 3 mission that me and my brother are making, that I could put in our mission as a tribute to our dad. If I could script a Missing Man Formation with F18's and some ai solders doing the volley, that would be great. Thanks, Greenthunder

    3 Volley Salute/ Missing Man Formation

    I did see this before, but one thing I was thinking I could do in the script is beable to spawn the jets and waypoints based on, for example, where the player is and what direction he is facing. When I placed the jets and waypoints using the editor, they fly pretty good, so I thought if I could script this, it should be pretty good, with the added bonus that I could spawn them anywhere on the map too.

    3 Volley Salute/ Missing Man Formation

    I used the editor, with waypoints, and have 4 F18's do a flyover with one jet climbing out of sight for the missing man formation. I want to script this, creating the jet and creating the waypoints, but it doesn't seem to follow all the waypoints. It seems to follow the the first 2 waypoints but doesnt follow the 3rd one. I put down 4 empty helo landing pad objects, at the proper positions and heights to use when I creat the waypoints. The 2nd waypoint height is set to 2500m and the jet starts to climb, but then stops climbing and comes back down to a low height before reaching the 3rd waypoint, which is also set at 2500m. Here is the code I am using: KK_fnc_setDirFLY = { private ["_veh","_dir","_v"]; _veh = _this select 0; _dir = _this select 1; _v = velocity _veh; _veh setDir _dir; _veh setVelocity [ (_v select 1) * sin _dir - (_v select 0) * cos _dir, (_v select 0) * sin _dir + (_v select 1) * cos _dir, _v select 2 ]; }; // All clients stop executing here, do not delete this line if (!isServer) exitWith {}; private ["_missingMan", "_spawnStart", "_wp"]; _spawnStart = MissingManStart; _missingMan = createVehicle [ "JS_JC_FA18E", _spawnStart,[], 0, "Fly" ]; [_missingMan, -225] call KK_fnc_setDirFly; createVehicleCrew _missingMan; _grp = group driver _missingMan; hint "Vehicle Spawned"; _wp = _grp addWaypoint [MOVE1, 0]; hint "WP1 created"; _wp setWaypointType "MOVE"; _wp setWaypointBehaviour "CARELESS"; _wp setWaypointSpeed "SLOW"; _wp setWaypointStatements ["true", "hint 'WP1 Reached';"]; _wp = _grp addWaypoint [MOVE2, 0]; hint "WP2 created"; _wp setWaypointType "MOVE"; _wp setWaypointSpeed "FULL"; _wp setWaypointBehaviour "CARELESS"; _wp setWaypointStatements ["true", " _missingMan FlyInHeight 2500; hint 'WP2 Reached'; diag_log ['GroupLeader: ', this];"]; _wp = _grp addWaypoint [MOVE3, 0]; hint "WP3 created"; _wp setWaypointType "MOVE"; _wp setWaypointBehaviour "CARELESS"; _wp setWaypointSpeed 'FULL'; _wp setWaypointStatements ["true", "hint 'WP3 Reached'; _missingMan FlyInHeight 2500; deleteVehicle this"]; I have tried using the 'FlyInHeight 2500, because this is worked in the editor. Any idea why this doesnt work? Thanks.

    [MP][CTI-COOP] Liberation (beta)

    I have tried the mission in the editor, and now want to restart the mission, hosted from my computer, but when I host a LAN game it starts from where I let off in the editor. Where do I find/how do I restart the mission. When I do a Restart from the launch screen it does not reset everything. Thanks,
  25. When I try to fly an F/A18 (either the E/F Black Wasp), from the Nimitz, I get no throttle from my joystick (Logitech 3D Force Feedback). But if I move the aircraft to land, my throttle works fine. I am using the release version and also the experimental version on the ftp site. Is there something I have to do to get it to work off of the Nimitz? Thanks, Greenthunder
