    - Working on EightySix's Patrol Ops 2 to make it a persistent, MSO-like campaign mission with realism focused gameplay.
    - Developing AI or client scripts and mods for realistic combined arms gameplay on ACE2 environment.
    - Working on making a modular public release version for current work.
  1. No zeroing at DMR & SVD in OA and CO Added by Val about 4 years ago. Updated almost 4 years ago. Iron sights for scoped weapons with sidemounted scope Added by TheMasta almost 6 years ago. Updated over 3 years ago. 6 years ago! 6! You don't understand what I'm saying. Actually you don't want to understand. Of course modders came into the scene to add such features because they were never added. But that wasn't the main purpose of such mods. Great mods like ACE made whole changes to the game, and these things came at the side. And it's all a package, so it's not like you can keep using ACE or any other mod without problems and say "I'm going to remove this component because it's now part of the core game and it causes compatibility issues". Instead it gets broken and goes fubar. I'll say it once again, not to try to make you understand, but to try to break Dwarden's silence on this. You're presenting new features as "fixes" and breaking whatever mod comes in your way. I'm forgetting about people who don't use mods? Do you have statistics? Do you know what percentage of the Arma 2 population uses mods and what doesn't? No, of course you don't. And you don't care anyway. As I've said you're a modder under the disguise of a game developer without any interest in making the best decisions for the community. I'll just wait until Dwarden shares his thoughts on this. Otherwise I'm through arguing with you.
  2. Schatten, it seems to me that you're the one who's forgetting, or rather dismissing, the people who do use mods. Although like everyone else here, I appreciate the work you put in, you're behaving not like a game developer, but a modder yourself. You have your own aim and you're blindly following it, not listening to or taking seriously any criticism by the folks who are actually going to have to use your work in the end. You're patching a game which is sold for money, you're not making a mod and if this is what you chose to do, you have to start listening to the customer base, just like BIS normally does, even though there are disagreements within the customer base (and that's for us to discuss here). Otherwise, you're not only making people disappointed, but by saying you put in a lot of effort and not caring about breaking mods, you're basically saying you don't care how much effort mod developers have put into their work back in the day. The turrets config name is an excellent example. Changing the name of it might make your corepatch look tidier, but it does nothing but create problems who swear by the mods they use, the mods that took years to develop and are no longer being worked on. There is a time and place for everything, and the stuff you're doing should have been done in the past. Since they weren't, there is no point in doing them now because the community is no longer strong enough to deal with its repercussions. Sorry, but it's about time you start giving a crap about what others are saying.
  3. If I looked for ways to insult your preferences in Arma (a game which has always been designed to be at least more realistic than anything else out there), I'd be able to do it in more ways than you can imagine. But that's not the point of having these discussions. So next time try being respectful when you're arguing against something, or you might as well just leave these forums and take your rant about dropping whatever server you had somewhere else.
  4. I understand that but perhaps adding an armpatch is not something that would take much time. That's what I meant when I said I don't know what it requires. Magazine models for the Czech rifle were being discussed earlier, so I see no problem in at least bringing this on the table. What I can say is this would be a change that no one would come here to complain about at least, unlike many of the changes already done which the rest of the community doesn't seem to like so much... On the other hand, having CDF soldiers in-game with custom arm patches and PMC units with no such feature doesn't make much sense.
  5. Thanks for the answer. I had a look at the API and saw that already but I just wasn't sure what "spectator" meant in this case. Now I see I hadn't read all of it before. I guess dead guys are moved to a "dead" channel automatically anyway by the looks of it and they can't hear anyone. This is nice.
  6. Alright I've been meaning to say this but I keep forgetting. It's perhaps kind of a big request (I have no idea what it requires really), but can we get arm patches (squad xml logo on arm) on the units that are missing them? It's a shame BIS left most models with this feature lacking, especially for OA. That being said, many OA vehicles don't have the logo either... This is one of the great features of Arma, especially to those that play as a unit with their own original logo. It would be awesome to finally have it on all (or at least most) units and vehicles.
  7. I'm going to swoop right in here to ask a question. It might sound a bit stupid because I don't even play Arma 3 and what I'm about to ask might already be in ACRE2, but I run an Arma 2 unit and we will be switching to A3 soon enough, so I'd rather ask now. So the question is: is there a way to force the speakers on TS3 to mute when someone dies? So if a teammate is dead, he can't hear his mates talking near his dead body. I don't think this is possible with ACRE1 anyway, but perhaps with ACRE2? If it's not there yet, then consider this as a kind and very hopeful request for the future! :)
  8. A config class switch matrix, if I understand it right, is not going to work with modded buildings unless you add them as well. I'm not the most experienced person here, but just throwing it out there. How about using boundingbox on the house to see if they're on the roof, if the line intersect method is unfeasible?
  9. I agree this is great. Especially if you get a bunch of AI to occupy a house, this should be awesome.
  10. Yep that definitely fixes the problem in Fallujah! "Normal" speeds are achievable again in the right places when CorePatch_CCP_67951_OA is removed. But off-road speed becomes fast again. Here's a better explanation. With the patch: road > dirt road > runway > off-road > taxiway (with taxiway speed becoming unbearable) Without the patch: road > runway > off-road > taxiway > dirt road but if that can't be fixed without breaking the functionality again, I'd happily accept the case without the patch over the other. CorePatch_CCP_67951_OA doesn't include a file for Clafghan, and removing it doesn't make any difference. Perhaps it was always like that...
  11. Are you guys going to make any changes to the driving speed on different terrains? Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people that are whining to get it back to the way it was. But there are some problems with it, really big problems! Now, I don't know if this was mentioned at all before, but some of the favorite community-made maps no longer have their runways and taxiways working properly since the previous core-patch. Haven't tested this in beta currently and I can't unfortunately because I'm running a server on my PC. But let me explain in case you don't know about it. For example, Clafghan's runway and taxiway behave prettymuch like a dirt-road now. You get about the same speed driving on it compared to a dirt-road. On the other hand, Fallujah is completely broken! The runway stops you from going above a certain speed, it cuts your speed with a kind of "hiccup" while speeding up. The taxiway in Fallujah is even worse. It behaves like a rocky mountain. It's the slowest terrain I've ever driven on in Arma, so I'm not sure what to compare it with... You can literally run faster on it than driving with some vehicles. I don't know the first thing about map making and I don't know if this is because of "poor design" or whatever, but they used to work fine before the patch. The situation especially in Fallujah is extremely annoying for people that play on the map frequently and use the airbase there...
  12. When I said "still" I meant still broken in the current stable version. Sorry for the confusion. Does this mean the fix will be available in stable when this patch is finalised?
  13. The front machineguns on cars that have them (such as the HMMWV SOV, BAF Jackal) still haven't got their angles fixed. The angles became too narrow with the earlier corepatch and it was said that they would be fixed. We use a lot of light vehicles in our gameplay and the front guns are practically useless at the moment. Please fix them soon.
  14. OP updated. We want to let you know that we're always looking for new recruits. But we're also looking for capable instructors to join us. If you have spent time in a milsim community, especially as an instructor, and are willing to "work" for us, please contact me through our website or through Steam.
  15. Any chance of BIS making it happen then? Or is A2 now considered to be completely obsolete?
