    Hmm almost 500 builds and that's it?
    ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
    ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

    Giving 'authenticity' an entirely new meaning, together with Medal of Honor.

    Just curious if its impossible to improve AI trigger discipline using light/heavy machineguns? Still they keep on firing when turning around or moving away which results often in friendly kills. If skill/accuracy is set higher they use single shots... Weapon bug or AI issue or both?
    Imo default AI MG/LMG fire mode should be a longer burst on target and definitely stop if AI moves/turns around.

    Seems you'd have more constructive things to say but every time I see one of your posts it's pointless and demeaning.

    If me asking what else is there but one fix in the log is pointless and demeaning why are you getting upset?

    Just noticed that when in the airport tower on Utes and looking through the glass... no smoke or explosions are visible. Just checked some other buildings and the same result....no smoke, fire or explosions visible when looking through window glass.

    It's a problem caused by the burst mode implementation. Bursts can be interrupted by animations (try it yourself - the burst will complete when the interrupting animation is complete), and AI will similarly complete their bursts (which are hidden from the player, and are often > 3 rounds to simulate MG burst fire) after the target has been neutralised.

    This means that your AI might be halfway through a 10-round burst when it kills or loses sight of the enemy. "Great," thinks the AI, "Imma just gonna turn around and move to cover." Needless to say, you aren't happy when the remaining 5 or so rounds of the burst issue forth in your general direction.
    Everyone tempted to post another inane/useless/whogivesatoss topic in the A3 forum - here.

    Good stuff.

    EDIT: Never mind. Was mistaken. The beta builds have been around much longer than I remembered.

    Gigabyte P67X-UD3-B3 Motherboard | Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.0GHz | NVidia GeForce GTX770 4GB
    16GB Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz RAM | Kingston HyperX SSD | ASUS Xonar D2X

    If long burst causes the issue, changing the number of ai burst round will minimize the occurance of it and might also improve their accuracy as well right?
