please no... yea, sure... I can go shoot both my pistols in real life in both hands.. but never in combat or a combat sim

difficulty setting is not realistic in the 1st place..so your argument that difficulty doesn't matter..well it does bc its designed to help you w/stand injury anyway. I would go w/ ExploitedYouth and up the difficulty to be the "realistic" setting.
kinda like how a lower difficulty has 3rd person..
True, I agree it doesnt have to do with modules.. bc I have seen this many of times in Arma2 with just groups and waypoints. I guess it just seems like modules bc of the way the men were standing in the specific area.
I know on arma2, if there are too many AI they will also do this
ok, please note Im not here to go against you. I agree w/ the Escape from Stratis mission issue.
on your sample reproduction mission you have set a very high number of groups in close range w/ each other and the opposition.
this for sure makes the AI act stange.. just like in arma2. I think its bc they have too many targets and you simple are not one of them.
I made the exact mission with just two groups per side and a major difference. full combat mode from both sides.
I think you repro is actually good for other issues but doesnt reflect the Escape mission very well..
to duplicate just reduce your groups to two a side
well, just to many trolls attacking BIS on this tracker..so my bad.
I also noticed this last night playing w/ no AI and one friend.
It looks like the OutPost Site Module(outlook or something). bc its 4 guys standing close and others in surroundings..
they did not fight back..in multiple areas of the map. even the airport was no resistence
this actually happened in arma2 very often. I really dont know why it does.
I just hope they fix bc its kind of a "showcase" mission.
100% Troll. umm dude..go make some mods
your not being positive/constructive w/ your use of words..sh*t? really man..
I agree w/ ExploitedYouth. 1 shot in head for sure. Actually, 1 shot in other parts for the most part also!
oh and by the way..
you guys are awesome and I thank you soooo much for all your realism/detail and hard work!
make sure you are comparing your placement of items with "terrain textures" "on" an also the not textured layout of the terrain. this should give you a more accurate placement. like in arma2, the layout of the terrain non textured terrain does not match up with the textured terrain perfectly, resulting in misplaced items.
just trying ot help incase thats your issue. peace
You are just going to have to spend some time in the forums man.. Its very worth it bc your missions grow to beyond basic. you will be pleased if you just spend the time to use this editor. BIS has actually enhanced this editor to be alot more user friendly.. all the functions etc are right there in your face. I think BIS would like us to take this discussion to the forums. goodluck and more power to ya w/ this BAD A editor! Post your issue in the forums and someone will help, good community w/ the editor
yep, hope so. I also want to figure out how to keep the module synced to the player after respawn.. may just be my lack of scripting knowledge.. but once I die.. no more support for me :(
yea the virtual arty that sends the mortars seems to have a few issues.. i agree. Sometimes they confirm round inbound but nothing and sometimes it will hit me..haha even thought I obviously didnt aim it at my self
oh.. It seems like all rounds land in exact same spot? like no spread at all. is that suppose to be that way?
I downloaded my video car driver and did a "clean install" and it worked I hope it helps you. "Clean install" is under custom install.. not under "recommended install". peace
I may be wrong but running and combat pace are seperate things.. I dont think in any running stance you can have a raised weapon. I think that is designed for realism.. i think
wait until they give you an apache or something dude and maybe you can ride as someones GUNNER so u can do what u wish.. a fixed gun is never fired siting still..only an apache or something of that nature sits still bc they are soo far from any hostile gun fire
great idea bc it seems you never get enough votes, even if everyone wants someone gone.. I guess #vote kick name is to complicated ha.
I guess one person could start the "vote kick", then everyone hit 1=yes 2= no
if he keeps joining, then one start the "vote ban" then 1 yes 2 no
i have no flicker.. sry u do. hope it gets resolved
wierd.. friend and I found the font to be very nice, we actually mentioned it to one another.. must be a setting thing? I only have 1024x768 here.
agreed..they are usually dead while in vehicle, or atleast in wasteland.. i think this is why some people are complaining about "not being able to see over dashboards or see well in choppers etc..when actually its bc there head is hanging down
@dBait- did you play arma2? it took me a while to figure this out in arma 2 as far as heli physics etc...but now Im so used to it I like it. feels realistic to me..i just go watch some real choppers and it helps me realise its not that far off. I am definitly not debating you. I may simpy be used to it. I also use a xbox controler when I fly so who knows
either way- ivgori and prospekt are right..can only get better
also you should dive down as low as u can first then lower yourself.. dont just lower from high alt
May 9 2016
just give it some time and servers will start banning em etc.. I support all TEAM KILLERS..why? because they give money to my favorite developers like Bohemi...then my favorite communtiy(arma) ban them from playing!! so thanks you hacking and TKing idiots for giving money to them and now u cant play..or soon u wont! yippie
what u mean.. i play with a controller and its great?! helis everything? I can assist you in making the controller work if no one helps u.
I reported a while back. Wish I would have put the build # like you Roypp. Oh well, I know now. I'm sure it was the previous, so I'll update to dev soon and check.
I may report an issue with selecting your drop point on the map. Once you join the helo and it requests u to pick a location. The map will not zoom like usual w/scroll wheel. This results in not being able to zoom out and pick.
I don't know if that's worth there time right now. Don't want to report on little things and waste the devs time.
I have this issue also. User made mission.. Call in a MH9 using the support module and he picks me up just fine, besides being unable to easily zoom in/out of map at this moment to place a drop point. He lands and then my character stands up on the side seat as well. Restart..this makes my mission worthless at that point bc I use the helo to get in and out of an OA.
I could have sworn he successfully dropped me off a few times.. but now everytime I hit "get out" he just stand on side seat.
DEV and REG BUILD.
how about you guys keep this version and the rest of us can play the full release that isnt a comedy..
i have been using a 360 controller for arma 2 and alpha. this has alwyas been the problem if u try to set it up yourself. I just got over it and use my RB for fire and like left trigger for zoom. my right joystick button is scope.. and my RTrigger is actually adjust stance..it honeslty works great!. just reconfigure and u will get it to work well.. i really think adjust stance on trig is awesome
i wont downvote..but i honeslty find it realistic to drop your weapon as u "pull out your map"..i just wont vote either way.peace
they actually put this (kinda but better)in the game. its called adjust stance. use left control and your WSAD keys to adjust to the cover u are on. best advice to u, DO NOT compare this to BF3 and COD style games. this is a realism/sim style military game. example CAMPING is no such thing, its called ambushing, or holding etc.
for now i use the support module option as my pilot. Sync yourself to a support requester and sync the requester to a support provider..now sync provider to a helo. now u can request a land and pick up.
I agree w/ you 100%, I hope they update this. I just wanted you do know a Temp solution that may help you for now. peace

I am downvotign only bc I think this post is actually getting the developers attention..this one http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=3505
so good job NordKindchen for also noticing this great post and idea..
this guys idea is so much better than having laggy grass everythwere.
u just simply cant compare to COD bc its a smaller terrain either way. this guys idea can fix the actual issue and save fps
prochy.. simply updating your drivers may not help.. U need to go to your graphics card website and download the most current driver. not an update. when u go to install you driver dont click "recommended" hit "custom" there should be a check box for "CLEAN INSTALL". im not sure if u should uninstall ur old driver first..maybe someone else can help. but i know just simply updating didnt help me either
Ive been having similiar mulitplay only game freeze issues. I believe I fixed the issue using the developers advice. update to the latest sound and graphic drivers using CLEAN INSTALL or use a driver's cleaner software. this DID stop the freezing, but in its place is a random lag that comes and goes. much better than the freeze. edit: i think the freeze is gone now to!
I dont support this at all .. only because the poster is an Obvious Troll.
hey Testus. Your confusion and frustration for newbies is that of most simulator style games. Arma is the easiest of so called SIMS to get used to(go try to take off in FSX full controls). I like your post bc it shows that you have tried a few hours of playing and its gotten easier. Arma is not ment to be easy breeezy controls..but once you play a awhile you start to realize there purpose. For ex. someone has posted about a mechanic they dont like.. "when you put away your map the rifle is in relaxed postion". yes! thats what we love in our sims style games! anyway, about opening doors in cars.. it should be just as easy as any other game.. except, you have to aim at the "specific door" you want in and press whatever key is your action key. same as any other game..but if you go to just any part of the car, then you have to scroll wheel to desired.
i like how Cotton says it still needs work..alpha? naw
In case of random crashes, please install latest graphic and sound drivers. Usage of driver cleaner before installing new drivers will make sure you have no corrupted drivers left on your computer.
make sure to use custom install of driver and manually check CLEAN INSTALL this should help
@Kid18120 - chill man. as long as one of the same issue is in the tracker we are good right? they know of your issue an actual "developer" responded to this post.. so jus chill man.
the moderators are flooded with dupes and trolls so just give em a chance.
IF you are playing "WASTELAND" and you get the freeze..then this may simply may be your problem bc wasteland is heavily scripted and will probabley take longer before it gets supported.
try to duplicate your freeze/crash while playing the developer made missions online.
I had the same issue, but I did a "clean install" of the NVidia driver. DO NOT just go into control panel and hit update.. go to actual website and download the latest driver..then click on "custom" install not "recommended".. click "clean" install. hope this helps.. it helped me.. but remember wasteland is not currently something to base your crashes off of if im not mistakin
Same here. In close range of Mortars on second smaller island. Dev Build 0.51.103078
i can email you w/ info. or maybe we can find a place in the forums instead. up to you? but i dont really wanna clutter this up
you can change it how you want dont worry. I use an xbox controller all the time. you have to get over the "usual" xbox controller scheme if u wanna remap though. I personally love it now that im used to my set up. there are two, one is a pre mapped xbox disable this one, the other is a cutomizable "enable" this one. now go back to your keyboard layout and add the controls as u wish. note that the RT will not map to FIRE. I was devistated in arma2 over this but now I love my set up. RT- stance adjust RB-FIRE LT-ZOOM LB-COMBAT SPEED RjoyButton is scope etc. I also keep the keyboard near for other less useful stuff liek inventory etc. just get used to it, its worth it. I can send u a full list of how I map mine if you have trouble
I had the random 5-30 mutiplay play time freeze and often. I took the advice of the developers and did a CLEAN INSTALL of my nvidia driver. now instead of crash/freeze I experience heavy lag but then normal again! so thanks developer..wonder what the heavy lag is now. Hope i did a clean enough install. freeze is fixed, thanks! but like i said every 5 to 30 min instead of freeze it lags
agreed. I just wanna support a new player like the poster. and let him know that some servers will help his experience.. Michael, make this post resolved so u can delete it
umm skorpion.. i dont think anyone is debating natural friendly fire/accidents/fog of war stuff.. but we both know that there are deliberate team killers who will slay the entire team as soon as u spawn. so all he needs to know is to join a server that has active admins to get rid of the VERY UNREALISTIC TEAMKILLERS.
