  1. Any plans to have an MP version?
  2. Just wondering if anyone else has overclocked their system (CPU/GPU/RAM) specifically to help run ArmA 3 and what results you had. As for myself, I've seen HUGE gains after I OC'd my CPU and RAM. Brought new life to my old system. Now reconsidering if I need to build a new PC for ArmA 3. Spec's: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @ 3.0GHz - OC'd to 4.0GHz (Got the biggest FPS gain from this, 10-15 more FPS) 8GB DDR2 RAM @ 800MHz - OC'd to 1066 (Noticeable gain of about 5-6 FPS after increasing the clock speed of my RAM) GTX 580 1.5GB - Had the smallest gains after OCing the GPU, pretty much not worth it due to stability issues. Also running ArmA 3 from a 128GB SSD. I haven't had a chance to run a real benchmark on ArmA 3, but the Arma 2 benchmark #1 went from 31-34 FPS to 55 FPS.
  3. I have the Logitech G930 Wireless 7.1 headset, same problem here. With surround sounds on the audio starts to stutter when more than a few things are happening at once. Turning surround off makes the issues go away. I found that after I OC'd my CPU the surround sound worked a bit better but still has issues with stuttering so I suspect it's caused by high the CPU usage of ArmA 3 slowing down the sound processing on the headset. When I get home I'll look for the logitech process in the task manager and try setting it to high priority and see if that helps.
  4. Requesting that I have my post count restored to it's original number of ~500 It was reduced several years ago due to infractions but I have been on good behavior ever since! (Don't remember who reduced it.) Thanks a lot!
  5. Audio stutter/Popping?

    Did you go into your audio options and increase samples from 32 to 128?
  6. Internet going down when Playing ARMA 2

    What kind of network card are you using? Wireless? I had a somewhat similar problem with my wireless linksys pci card, I had to uninstall the drivers that windows picked out for it (2009) and then reinstall the lastest drivers manually from linksys.
  7. Can't buy supporter edition?

    Same exact situation here, I can even see the charge from BIS on my debit card.
  8. Wow amazing progress with the desert island! I am impressed!
  9. One of my favorite campaigns from OFP was The Partisan: Persistent Campaign by McHale. Which is basically a never ending version of the Resistance campaign that is dynamic and all your weapons and equipment carry over from one mission to the next. You start out with nothing and slowly build up to a force that can stand up to the Russians on Malden. I intend to fully port the campaign over to ArmA 2 and then build on it more from there, eventually even looking to get this campaign working in MP. I've ported it to Malden 2010 and can pull the campaign missions up in the editor and everything matches up in the right place as far as unit, marker, trigger placement goes. Getting it to run in game is another story.... I already know I have to replace all the OFP class names with their ArmA2 equivalent and have done this with no problems. The biggest problem I am facing now is that all the scripts are in .sqs format and I need convert them into a working .sqf I am starting with the init.sqs file because this one is the first culprit to crash the game according to the .rpt This post has helped me the most. I have done all of that except, Getting rid of all the "goto" and "#loop" commands in the file... I am fairly new to scripting and am having trouble wrapping my head around how to replace these with a structure that plays nice with the .sqf format. I've looked at the biki article on sqs to sqf conversion and it makes sense their but could someone give me an example of how to apply that to my script? What I have so far on my init.sqf...still have #loops and gotos in there.

  10. Wat? Are we supposed to step back from our mouse and keyboard and start acting all this shit out? How is this supposed to work?
  11. Very poor performance in map.

    Please post the full specs on your computer and maybe we can help you out. But I do feel your pain, every time I switch to the map I get low FPS as well.
  12. Anyone remember PvP in the OFP days? Hexenkessel anyone? Just search youtube for "operation flashpoint CTF" Some Examples: - PvP worked in OFP and was great fun I do, I was in a few clans that would be playing PvP most nights vs other clans. It was a ton of fun. CTF/TDM/DM/C&H/ and especially CTI were all great to play in OFP and there were a large chunk of the MP community playing those game modes. Then ArmA came around, and introduced ridiculously clunky player animations that make any quick reaction PvP pointless and frustrating, PvP never really took off in ArmA because of this. It literally took about 5 seconds just to get a hand grenade off, I'm not saying BIS needs to make the game handle like CS but shit...we don't need long drawn out animations for chucking a frag. ArmA III could potentially have amazing PvP action bringing back the OFP glory days. But in my opinion it all rides on BIS making the controls less clunky and animations more streamlined/efficient and responsive, as long as they do that PvP should thrive on it's own. And of course the community making good PvP maps helps alot too.
  13. [CO-OP] Get HIND, Get Out!

    Excellent stealth mission reminds me of the OFP days, best played with 1-2 players IMO.
  14. Happy 102nd Birthday!

  15. :O Why did you get banned?
