  1. Already at 19! ๐Ÿ˜„ I believe Harzach did find a secret way to press the plusses for more reputation, he can't be that nice of a person to accumulate more than 2000 reputation! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Decent gateway mid level HOTAS.

    I have the Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino. I have it for many years, so they probably have a newer type nowadays. It has split throttle and infinity amount of buttons and dials. Costed about $200, perfect for the 'medium hardcore' player ๐Ÿ˜… EDIT: I see now they have the Logitech G Saitek Pro Flight X56 HOTAS. It looks great. I see now that you mention it in your comment. I think it's a good choice!
  3. Are they at it again? ๐Ÿ˜… One of my pet peeves with arma is that so many of the animations in the series are exaggerated, sometimes even 'theatrical', some of the reloading anim, idle animations, story anims etc. I almost suspect it's a Czech or BI company cultural thing.. "Less is more BI" ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜„
  4. The work so far looks highly professional! ๐Ÿ‘

    AI helicopters 'hopping' when landing

    Unfortunately, I also noticed this. Hopping has started or increased clearly in missions that I've played dozens of times. Should be tested without mods, but I use very few so I am sure it is a vanilla problem.

    I have purchased all the products to run Arma 3 in VR

    I have purchased all Arma related products, and played thousands of hours. I have lost control of my real life, and I don't know anymore how to run it. Can someone explain to me how?

    [Poll] ArmA Reforger / Arm4

    I planned to wait but my friends gifted me the game for my birthday.. ๐Ÿ˜…
  8. My statistics knowledge is a bit rusty, but I have some worries about the validity of your results. The differences you base your ranking on are quite small, which makes me wonder if they are (statistically) significant. Av diff between forw no engine, with and without brakes is 0.026 sec in favor of breaks. For engine on the effect is reversed, which could be an indication that there is no real effect of breaks. You have only six samples per condition which seems a bit low to detect such small possible effect. I realize all the testing takes some work in the game, I respect that! So basically I'm not yet convinced your ranking means anything. I suspect that if I try it, I might get another ranking. Disclaimer: I looked really hard at your numbers, because I had other work to do, but did not feel like doing it. ๐Ÿ˜…

    I grew "old" playing the series

    My friends circa 2001 showing me OFP: Now stand up and try to shoot the enemies. *bang* ok, now you're dead. Me: this game is awesome. I was already a big fan of Novalogic's Delta Force (the hat in my profile pic is more or less a reference), but raised on games like Doom and wolfenstein, so a realistic outdoors military game without health packs, shields, with invisible bullets made a great impression. Entering and using the vehicles was of course super impressive at the time. I can remember thinking, wow if they can do this, probably in the next version we will be able to physically open all the vehicle doors and hatches, that will be awesome.. I was thinking this around 2003, BI why have you forsaken me?? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Make snipers great again , my idea how to make it in arma4

    I mostly play single player and AI are partly buried at a distance. It definitely decreases their visibility. Probably human players are not partly buried because that will be confusing and interfere with their playing.

    Arma 3 Creator DLC: Western Sahara

    I hope the CDLC weapon stats are not a sneaky attempt to make them A3 comparable, but slightly better (popular) overall.. ๐Ÿ˜…

    Arma 3 Creator DLC: Western Sahara

    I tried that as well, but the steam integrity check for the complete arma game got stuck as well. Part of the problem was I think that steam aggressively tried to partially install it, thereby confusing the Steam app and the Arma launcher and me when there was not enough (temporary) space. I got it working though after lots of reboots and freeing up more ssd space! I shot 10 dromedaries in celebration! ๐Ÿช I consider myself a hard customer for this type of content, in general: - I don't like land locked maps - I don't like Arma 2 stuff - I don't like many mods in general because the quality gap with BI is too large, even though I (as a modest modder) respect the hard work that goes into creating mods and dlc This CDLC was the first I immediately had a feeling I might like. It is limited in scope, but it has a matching price. The overall look and feel fits with the Arma 3 universe well and some of the assets will easily fit in with the official BI maps. The 'sea of sand' surrounding the map makes it not feeling landlocked. The slight mismatch between the buildings sometimes and for instance the choice of the Galil rifle is part of the quirkiness and 'why-not?' reasoning that I've come to appreciate since OFP. For me, cohesion is more important than absolute realism, and this DLC does it very well. I'm very pleased with this DLC!

    Arma 3 Creator DLC: Western Sahara

    This CDLC is giving me a hard time with sometimes partially loaded but with a lot of error messages (missing assets) and only some of the assets available. At other times it refuses to load and I can play arma but nothing of the cdlc is visible anywhere. I have only a few GB left on my drive, so perhaps a lack of space plays a part in this? No errors regarding disk space were encountered. Verifying the files of Arma in steam does not work (anymore)?? I tried to delete the CDLC folder to try to force it to reinstall the CDLC, but it didn't work. The launcher kept thinking the CDLC was already installed. Is there a way to properly re-install the CDLC? Any advice? EDIT: I see now that I can uninstall the dlc by going to the DLC section in steam arma properties and unselecting it (and deleting the mod folder). From the size it is trying to download (about 3-4 gigs) it does seem that I must clear disk space first before trying again.

    Crouching needs to drain stamina

    So basically what you're saying is that the game should detect if your avatar knowsabout 50 dudes running around crouching and then apply a stamina penalty to your character because viewing this scene can make you a bit tired. /bad jk ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don't know if 'the community NEEDS this', but I agree that the game character have unreasonable fitness in some areas leading to these strange behaviors. I think many players don't have the patience for more realistic behavior. There were many discussions about this before and BI has dialed back a quite punishing fatigue mechanism in the past. Even in this serious game, people want to jump fences in full gear where it can actually be quite difficult to even board a truck with all that gear in real life. We can hope, maybe in Arma 4!
  15. Yeah, you mean _this is the collection of arguments that you normally would split in _this select 0 etc., so if it expects an object it will fail.. This ๐Ÿ™‚ works perfectly, thanks!
