Subscyed added a comment to T82566: TrackIR stops when joining Multiplayer Games.

The only way I've been able to reproduce this problem is:
1)Launch ArmA 3.
2)Launch TrackIR software.
3)Notice the TrackIR is enabled, but not synced with the game.

One of the solutions is:
1)In ArmA 3, go to the controls menu.
2)Go to peripherals (where the Joystick usually is).
3)Stop and start TrackIR.

The other solution is:
1)In ArmA 3, go to the controls menu.
2)TrackIR should sync with the game at that point.

Bumping. Game-breaking consistent bug.

Subscyed added a comment to T79264: Having a pistol out causes a switch to the pistol upon exit.

Bumping. I imagine it's a small fix: Simply make the engine "remember" the person has a pistol out rather than a main weapon and "spawn" the person upon exit with the pistol out.

@R3vo
The problem isn't in the balconies. You can also clip through small fences. The rotation axis isn't the cause of just clipping issues, either.

It's also responsible for a lot of the fumbling involved with breaching rooms and buildings. You can't do sharp turns because that means jamming yourself in the doorway.

It feels very unnatural to point your body according to your gun and not the other way around.

Thank you for the attention and upvotes, guys. Hopefully it'll be worked out.

Subscyed added a comment to T77395: Glitching into walls, afterward getting killed..

Non-modded gameplay will help the devs determine whether it's a mod-issue or engine-issue.

If mod, then there's nothing they can or will do, up to the mod author to fix it.
If engine, then they have to do something about it.

TL;DR
Non-modded. Always.

This is related to http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=19487 (or maybe the other way around) but both are about the same issue (sorry about that!). If you could perhaps close the other or add/relate it to this one, that'd be grand.

There's more user-supplied information about the issue on the other ticket, but that's the only difference.

Again, thank you very much. Hope I was of some help.

Updating and bumping.

This needs more visibility than it's being given as it's a very gameplay-breaking bug.
Game modes such as KotH would be twice as enjoyable if this can of worms was shut.

I was able to find this link when the transition of axis from feet to head was in progress.
In it you can see the vast differences.
Axis when holding a rifle: head.
Axis when holding a pistol: feet.

Subscyed added a comment to T77305: Character clipping because of rotation axis..

Bump. The new rotation axis is the source of all clipping-related issues and presents a downgrade in gameplay quality.

Example: when trying to go around corners, your character ends up standing far outside its cover when you're just aiming slightly towards the end of the wall.

Subscyed added a comment to T76048: AA missiles are way too OP!!!!.

First of all, a few important things to note:

  1. If it's guided, it's a missile.

1a. If it's unguided, it's a rocket.

  1. The side you're facing in relation to the AA is important.

2a. Lock-ons from behind will almost always hit if you don't take immediate evasive manoeuvres.
2b. Contrasting, lock-ons from the side or front will almost always miss.

The behaviours pointed out in 2a and 2b are normal and realistic as can be. Flares don't do a good job of masking your heat signature if your heat signature (exhaust) is right in the missile's sight.

Subscyed added a comment to T70487: Bad hit animation.

Quick question: Why are these issues being addressed but those that damage the overall quality of gameplay aren't?

PS: Don't mean to be offensive or hijack in anyway, I think these animations could be a lot better.

Upvoted.

This is already implemented on the last 5 rounds of any normal 30rd Stanag.
Just start up the editor, place a Rifleman unit, control it and fire off the mags. There'll be tracers near the end.

Subscyed added a comment to T64924: Dual wield handguns and SMGs.

Sure, let's add this for just one build so people can see how ludicrous it really is.

Dual wield is not only a waste of ammo but also intelligence (if there was any to begin with).

Downvoted obviously. Poorly thought-out idea, wouldn't work nowhere near efficient on any milsim or game that takes actual ballistics and weapon behaviour into account.

Subscyed added a comment to T64611: Make it possible to carry an additional vest in a backpack.

Usually, during the circumstances described, the diver team carries with them a sealed crate with their actual inland gear that they drag to the shore and gear up from it before continuing the mission.

Voting - because it's not really that important and can be worked around in an editor.

Subscyed added a comment to T64427: Falling animation needed.

There's a distinct difference between GTAIV ragdolls and A3 ones.

In a few words? Euphoria ragdolls.

However, I wouldn't be against HALO jump animations/stances.
Granted, 75 metres is short as all heck for a HALO jump, but it would make /some/ sense.

Subscyed added a comment to T63875: Make sprinting realistic.

ArmA 2 actually had animations when moving from a static position, such is the case of crouch and then just moving somewhere at normal jog speed (there were no other speeds then that would conserve the stance).

I would like to see something like that implemented in A3 with the exception that it should be a lot more fluid, and rather than being for just movement in general, it should be when switching to a sprinting speed.

Either way, would really like to see some inertia added. Seems odd for my character to just stop without any problems after a long (and quick, I add) sprint.

TL;DR
The player/character should be considerably less manoeuvrable when sprinting.

Subscyed added a comment to T63375: 3rd person view.

Sadly this issue has already been addressed in a way.

Server providers can opt out of 3rd person view, and that option itself is already a solution to this.

Shacktack, for example, disables it on all missions they create, for a better sene of realism.

Other servers, particularly the ones that run Wasteland, refuse to disable it because they feel because it is part of the game, it's part of the mod.
A flawed argument, I'd say, but so are the ones in favour of removing 3rd perosn entirely.

The same way there will always be people using 3rd person to their advantage, there will always be cheaters, hackers and botters across all games.

Life isn't fair, no. Doesn't mean you should push your "solutions" on others though.

Just filter the servers with 3rd person on.

That's a bug that goes on and off. In reality they have the unconscious/dead position on when they're inside. It also happens on other vehicles.

Subscyed added a comment to T61723: Glitch allows player to see through walls and objects.

This issue is correlated with http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=19487 in the sense that the rotation axis determines where the character is pointed in relation to the rifle and not the other way around (character determining where the rifle is pointed, A2 style).

Subscyed added a comment to T60877: Feature Request: 3D Optics using Picture-In-Picture engine capability. (Red Orchestra Style).

I believe that going ahead with this and making so that the edges are unzoomed much like in Red Orchestra 2 and Insurgency would not only strike a blow for gameplay excellence in ArmA3's favour but also would make for a snippet of much-needed reality in this game.

Subscyed added a comment to T60860: Compass and clock disappear after aiming.

This is not an actual bug since the same behaviour is seen in ArmA 2 and all previous games of the series.

When you're aiming you're not looking at your clock, simple as that, really.
The same way when you stop aiming you don't immediately look back at your clock.
Anyway, either the compass or the clock are tools to help you guide, to be consulted every few minutes or so, not to be on the screen non-stop.

I'm sorry but this isn't a bug.

I have to remind everyone present here that this is a bug-report forum, not really a "place your suggestion here" kind of thing.

Granted this will get attention, but other more important things may be blocked because of this (and many other) suggestions submitted as bugs.

Please use the proper channels.

Subscyed added a comment to T59947: Better ragdoll.

My primary gripe with the ragdoll as it stands is that they're the slightest bit too light so LMG rounds actually knock back the ragdoll upon death which is pretty... weird.

They need a little more weight added to them, otherwise, it's an amazing sight the few times the ragdolls work as intended.

I can confirm this continues to happen in the latest Development build. It happens not only to backpacks but also to any item of clothing or vests.

Subscyed added a comment to T58799: Deploying a weapon / proper use of bipods.

About the assignment:
If someone didn't remove the in-brackets thing MadDogX added, it'd probably get assigned WAY FASTER.

@Laqueesha:
That is a terrible idea. Deploying a bipod every time someone goes prone is bad. Here's why: It's not every time that you go prone that you're going to be returning fire. It's not every time that you go prone that you'll be prepping your gun, either. Deploying a bipod should, by logic, slow your aiming speed considerably. The same applies to deploying the bipod when looking down the sights: You're not going to be firing every time you look down the sights. The sights/scopes are magnified, sometimes, people use them as what they're good for: scanning the horizon/angles.
