-If your mother language isnt English and your english teacher in school is talking to you and you answer "Roger that".

-When your girlfriend starts to give you tips on mission scripting.

-When you think like this:

Quote[/b] ] "this PLAYERNAME switchMove FXStandLeavePC: goto "bed""

#bed
~10
unit PLAYERNAME == present in bed: goto "end"
unit PLAYERNAME !present in bed: PLAYERNAME setdamage 1

#end
exit

-When every phone conversation starts like this: "You scripting/playing?" - "yeh" - "Ok Ill call you later then."

-When you and your m8 use voice over net comms over telephone to chat.

-When your parents start to call you with your ingame nick.

-Actual phone coneversation: "Hello?, hold on... Roger, we got 2 badboys at west, 200.... Ok back (on phone). Yeah, bye."

- you walk through a park and use EVERY bush on your way as cover.

- you drive with friends to a party and insist that the headlights need to stay off.

- you walk through the city centre and look for a good sniping spot.

- you see a flag pole and desperatly have the urge to go to it and take the flag.

- you DO get the flag down from the pole and start running, while suddenly stopping and wondering why there is no message saying "xxxx took the flag"

- you wonder why you don't get any points for staying close to it and hiding near to it in a bush.

- you ask visitors why they are not wearing the official camo.

- you run to every stick on a walk, cuz it could be a G36 or M21.

- you wonder if it is worth to run after the truck that just passed you, since it might have better weapons.

- you miss the start of a business meeting and yell out: "DAMN LAG!!"

- you are on way to a meeting together with your boss and ask him, if you could take the tank.

- you arrive somewhere and call out: "This is xxxx, I'm in position".

- you only crawl when crossing a street.

- you try to spot something at night and look for the "N" key.

- your English essay is titled: "Why I can't hit a barn door with a PK/M60".

- you think about mining the bridge you just crossed.

- you tell the people you walk around with to "FORM LINE!" and "STAY ALERT!"

- a person stumbles and falls near you, you say "oh no...2...is down"

- your boss asks "Are you ready?" and you answer "Cannot Fire!"

- When you see someone sitting in a park bench, you look at him and shout: "CAMPER"!

- When you see a chopper, your first thought is "AA".

- You hurt yourself and shout "MEDIIC!"

- When your almost every answer is Roger.

-"Why're you late?"
"Erm... I'm not late... you're lagging and missed me"

-"Did you work out your trigonometry?"
"Trig? I thought you said trajectory..." *sound of shells landing in the car park*

- When you use phonetic alphabet all the time.

- Whenever you give your friend/gf a present, its always OFP GOTY

Come to think of it OFP somehow has improved my eye sights i mean all those night/evening missions in which you have to lay low and strain your eyes for the slightest possible movement i swear now adays i can even spot a SLIGHTEST movement from the corner of my eye and usually i am correct in spotting it.

I think OFP has some how moulded us al in to a small semi-trained in warfare maneouvers rag tag army/militia Posted Image

Lol, somehow I don't think straining your eyes at a computer screen will improve your eyesight.

You know you've started to play too much OFP when you go out into the country and you appreciate the vast drawdistance.


I know I do.

When I get into my car with some friends I usually murmur "ALL getin car 4 o'clock."

Those who are flashpoint players get in and say "2 ready" "3 ready" and then I start driving and say "ALL move to echo foxtrot two four!" Posted Image


EDIT:

- when you see a vehicle you think "We need that addon!"
- when you look at the sky and comment how nice it would look in a skymod (I do this all the time)

- If you, while on a long trip, start looking for the time acceleration key.

- If you are impressed by the drop script used to create a fire in your fireplace.

- if you keep trying to figure out how to add curly braces "{}" in everything you say

- if you stumble wondering how to close a sentance with a semi-colon

- if you almost drive off the road due to trying not to cause the AI to get fuddled

- if you get lost on base because you don't recognize the signs because they're not in czech

- if you're stuck in traffic and your hand on the stickshift moves to where the mousewheel should be to "Move to gunner's seat"

- if you look at the trees and wonder how many planes they are, and why the world isn't lagging from the obviously massive AA/AS

- if you see a blackhawk go by and your first thought is to see if the snowplow really works

- if you have to remind yourself that even if truck01 is locked = false, the mp's might not be to happy for anybody to just hop in

- if you walk into things because you're always walking looking at your feet or hunched over




And where is that band that so vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country shall leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave, From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave;
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
(3rd stanza of the Star-Spangled Banner)

Well, if you dream of OFP like I sometimes did, then you know those missions are the best resolution, and sounds are great! You save the game when you get up, and continue next night. Posted Image

Simple as that, and you know you've played too much OFP when you've done that before. Posted Image

Yes you are, it's an amazing experience, you basically play OFP, or sometimes you think it's real life but not dramatic. Really amazing. Posted Image
