  1. Every time I try to download this file I am forced to downlaoad a .exe from a site I am comfortable with. Please provide a alternative we are more comfortable with fore a down load.
  2. German Version Intel Quad Core Q9450 2.66 GHz EVGA NVIDIA 295 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz Ram Vista Ultimate 64bit 1920 by 1200 Resolution Immersion Factor: Overall the immersion factor is excellent. The Campaign is well done, and feels more like your are involved in a real campaign / mission. Also the town buildings and layouts, are much better than Arma, and do convey a real feeling of being in a Eastern Europe / Russian Town / City. Graphics: For the most part pretty good. However the HDR is not perfect, and get shinny buildings and cars. Plus there are times when the bluring is just annoying. Would like to see the ability to turn of the post process effects, and hope the HDR is fixed in future releases. The AI: Mixed feelings here. When playing Civil War CTI, the Enemey Ai in town were great when in vehicles, but lifeless in fixed positions. If we can get all the Ai to be as agressive as the Ai were in the Trucks with DSHK / PK's, that would make for some real fun. I hope with a later patch, the Ai can be fixed, and become agressive, realistic Ai. (Right now it is so close) Performance: In this department the game was great. Both in Graphics and even MP. I think MP plays much smoother now, even with people with high pings. I used medium settings for graphics, and have had not issues, besides the HDR problem. Playability: The game is playable, but did feel like it is still in late beta stage. I would have to assume it is going to take two or three patches before all is perfected / polish This is a great game, with a great amount of flexibility. With good support this game, should end up being the best at what it was made to do. I look forward to the user missions that will come out, especially wants it gets released in UK / US.
  3. This sounds great. Is there a no-addon version available?
  4. Thanks Big Red. I will get a list of 1-8th players and post in the DK forums in a couple of days. Thanks to DK for taking the time to put this together.
  5. I think it is safe to say 1-8th would be interested in a 6 v 6. We are located in the US, and would like to get see some PvP here in the US.
  6. Thanks for the reply. 1-8th Enjoyed the previous GWL pack and look forward to this one. I hope the F-18 from Franz is still in it. The dynamic rearm ability the F-18 has should be part of all Air and ground vehicles. I see that there is going to be GWL campaign, and have a question. This campaign looks like it will be a lot of fun, but I am not sure if I would be able to make every match. Is it is an issue if someone is unable to make all the matchs? Also I see you are going to use the Iraqi Modern Warfare Mod in the future. Great choice. The are working with ACE, and I remember many of the ACE people from the OFP WGL mod. Great group, and a great mod.
  7. This sounds great, and I hope to attend. I tried to get the latest GWL pack, but once the link lead me to the Iceman filefront folder, it was empty. Are there any other links to get all the addons?
  8. Also if we changed commanders, the Ai we had would not take downs, or any orders from the commander. I hope some of the bugs are fixed, because the 1-8th squad like what you are trying to do with the mission.
  9. First just wanted to say, very nice work on the mission. Nice to be able to play on North and South now. So thanks for doing that. I have two questions. 1.) If you wanted to change default money, were can / how do you do that? 2.) To add a script to a vehicle, that you order from a factory how can one do that? ( I want to add the mando flares to aircraft for defense, and want to create a HMWWV with a stinger)

  11. Nice work radical.ghost. This is a nice addon to use with coop missions. One idea to help with PvP maps, is allow it so you can turn off the addon scripts in the mission config. That way if a person makes a PvP map, they can set the mission to not allow the view distance scripts from you addon to work. Just an idea.
  12. First I will post PC specs: AMD AM2 5000 CPU Nvidia 7950GT 512MB SLI (I have two cards 512 MB each) Driver Ver. 162.18 Motherboard Asus M2N32 WS Professional 4GB Ram ArmA 505 Games Now on Patch 1.08 Sound Card Creative Labs X-fi DirectX 9.0c Operating System Windows XP SP 2 with latest hotfix. 3 Hard drives Not sure were to start, because this is an odd issue. But I did not see a post on this, so if this is a duplicate I am sorry. I had to reinstall my windows XP this weekend, and after I installed ArmA, I was not able to run the game at all. I have both the 505 games and the Atari version, so I tried both and kept getting the "ArmA has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" error. (I did not even get to the check boxes going accross the screen) Prior to reinstalling Windows XP I had this game running on this machine. However I did flash my bios and install the Creative X-fi card when I reinstalled windows XP. (I do wonder if the issue has to do with the X-fi card) I decided to run the patch for the 505 game version, but kept getting an "application is already running error". So I rebooted, but still got this error. Later after several hours, I went ahead and tried to patch again. (The 1.04 to 1.05 international patch) This patch ran, but towards the end it stated there was a problem with the Arma.exe file. I clicked ignore, and the patch finished. At this point, I was able to run Arma so I went ahead and ran the 1.08 international patch. Again towards the end, it stated there was a problem with the arma.exe file, but once I clicked ignore the patched finished. At this moment I am on patch 1.08, and I can get the game to play so far. (Have only joined one MP game, I have not tested anything else) However I have no clue what happened, or if it is really fixed. I plan to get the Queens Gambit expansion, but I do not have a warm fuzzy that my current version is stable. So does anyone have an idea what the problem really is, and what I should do about it? (I have installed some other games after this, and no issues getting them to install / play.)
  13. WOW, nice idea. Look forward to the release.
  14. All I can say is "Amazing"!!! Put it up on the 1-8th server last night, and played as an Engineer. What you did for the Medic and Engineer is amazing. Added another element of fun to the mission. It played smooth, and no real lag issues. What are the future plans if any? I would not mind seeing a version were we played as OPFOR instead. Also you have some great scripts, I hope you would consider releasing to the community as templates. So I hope you consider releasing these as individual templates - Rank System and what vehicles you can use per rank - Dialog for View Distance - Base Repair - Medic / Engineer Thanks for putting this out. It has added a great deal to ArmA. Bohemia should send you a thank you card.
  15. Good to see you back, for Armed Assault Tacrod. Is the MP friendly, or just SP? If you need a server for testing, just let me know.
