I almost always keep a finger on alt now. Without TrackIR its the next best thing to maintain good awareness.
Aye, I want track IR for it but when oculus rift is out that'll be fantastic for ARMA
And nobody in the world cares for buzzards and lasers. I'm so sad.
[QUOTE=Thomo_UK;43103670]Aye, I want track IR for it but when oculus rift is out that'll be fantastic for ARMA[/QUOTE] I've got TIR, and I have also used the oculus. I can see myself using both kinds separately. I would use the oculus if I want extreme 1:1 movement, and scale factor, but until the pixel density improves to a point I can't notice, I don't think I'd be using it too much. You also risk motion sickness with the current version, that will need to improve too. I would use the TIR if I need to look a lot of places at once (flying games) without straining my neck too hard, or if I don't really feel in the mood for wearing ski-goggles with lights strapped to your face. The rift smells like foam and small hairs can get stuck and tickle your nose very easily. Right now, the Oculus isn't useful for anything beyond games like Half-Life. I never tried it on Arma, but it is impossible to use on War Thunder. You can see the ground fine, but you can't read the cockpit dials, and any plane beyond 100m is a blob of pixels. You can't identify the planes, or even whether they are upside down.
[QUOTE=inebriaticxp;43094869]don't worry, your preconceptions were correct killzone's universe is one of my favorites ever, but the game and story is admittedly p ungood i love the multiplayer though, wish it was still active hence my desire to recreate it in arma[/QUOTE] Everything the Helghasts did was out of defensive desires. It's one of the main things in the series and I'm glad that for the most part, the main characters are fuck ups rather than these do no wrong guys. Killzone 2 literally ends with you causing the war to drag on for many more years, with the events of Killzone 3 being out of motivated revenge for you assassinating their Leader. Another thing was that in Killzone 3, there is a ceasefire and yet you're still on their planet, waging war. The ISA is fucking scum.

if that doesnt work ill ram screws into my eyes and stick jump cables to them, and the other ends to the ports in my graphics card [editline]8th December 2013[/editline] HIGH DEFINIATION MAXIMUM PAIN/PLEASURE *maybe
[QUOTE=lekkimsm;43105431]Considering you most likely using the dev kit, alot of that have supposedly already improved for the next dev kit or final product[/QUOTE] I know they've improved it. I'm just waiting to see how far they go with it. I would love to see the day when the Oculus has a 4k resolution like the new TVs have. I would also like to see a bit of a curved shape to the screen so you can see more in your peripheral vision. Stuff like that is still a long ways away, and until they can make the set so light that you don't even notice you're wearing it, I think the TrackIR still has a place. Have they fixed the blurring around the edges of the lens? Often you'll see fine through the center of the lens, but around the sides it gets really blurry and strange. EDIT: Oh you can also lean with the TIR which is really useful in Arma and WT.

[QUOTE=cr2142;43113577]Just got the hellenic armed forces mod for ArmA 3[/QUOTE] Lol, this mod also has more content than a single faction in ArmA 3 :v:
Honestly though, it's not that high quality. [editline]8th December 2013[/editline] The cockpits of the jets are like 20 polys.
[QUOTE=Tinter;43114313]Honestly though, it's not that high quality. [editline]8th December 2013[/editline] The cockpits of the jets are like 20 polys.[/QUOTE] It still makes BIS seem pathetic in comparison to be honest seeing as they're an entire studio.
[QUOTE=Hamsteronfire;43100515]So I bought ARMA II: Complete during the Steam Autumn Sale and I would appreciate some tips with a few points. I understand that the premise of the game is military realism etc etc but I'm having trouble with mouse sensitivity/acceleration/whatever, it feels too either too sluggish or too fast at some points, and aiming is often difficult. Also, why are the objectives slightly broken? When playing the mission Into the Storm, for some reason I failed the objective Regroup at Point Liquid even though I did regroup there and I'm being told to regroup constantly even though I'm supposed to escort some Doctor and check out a grave site. Plus, I'm not sure if this is a personal thing but how are you supposed to process the amount of things going on in game at one time, I'm being fired at from 200m in the dark and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do (yes I know, go prone, fire at enemy etc which I do), I need to think but I just end up getting killed, it sucks. I've tried 3rd person and everything seems a lot clear but it breaks immersion for me, so yeah...... I'm coming from Red Orchestra 2 so the whole realism thing is no big deal but why does the control scheme have to be so overtly complex? I'm really unsure if ARMA II is the right thing for me, sorry for the rant, just a few things I had to get out.[/QUOTE] The AI in Arma has hivemind and pinpoint accuracy, try getting some mods like Zeus AI, TPW Suppression, etc. I think you'll enjoy it a hell of alot more then.

They probably thought you were not exactly on the highway to the danger zone. youtube is fuckin shite.

I'm sure it's fair use to record someone (I BET MICSI DID THIS) playing illegal music through their mic.
This is obviously youtube's way to make you make more arma videos

Is he moaning that BI are gonna pay people if they make good shit.
Take note that the same guy said this a few months ago: [quote="Xeno"]Wrong. I skip A3 because of Steam.There are some long time modders I know who will do the same. And those are people who have quite some knowledge of the engine and even worked for BI before. Reality is, the number of people who are able to mod the game is declining. And the people who entered the scene are more concerned about seeing their name in the A3 credits (first 500 buying the supporter version) than investing lots of time and make content for others for free. And how about you ? How about not making youtube videos anymore and start modding ? You won't make any money with modding though (compared to youtube videos)...[/quote] [url]http://www.reddit.com/r/arma/comments/19eoyl/cold_war_rearmed_mod_to_finish_what_they_have_and/c8npidx[/url]
apparently using cash prizes to motivate a stagnant mod community will kill it
tl;dr that guy is a fucking moron
I just read that reddit post and from what I gather that was just a rant about how youtube personalities are a less significant part of the community yet they get all the money. and now that the modders are getting money he's complaining about that too. [editline]8th December 2013[/editline] [QUOTE=Oicani Gonzales;43117899]tl;dr that guy is a fucking moron[/QUOTE] then why did you rate my post as 'disagree'
What a manchild.
Well the maker of Project 1985(P85) is throwing an absolute bitch fit about it and he's forbidden anybody from porting his stuff to ARMA 3 because of it. But that's probably because there is a lot of people stealing his shit and claiming it as their's for use in Day Z as well, at least according to him.
