[PC - FPS/Realism Sim] ARMA 3

Postby Gh0st.IRE on Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:55 am

I realised we had a thread for giving away ARMA Lite keys, but not for the game itself!

Anyway, fantastic game. Blows CoD, Battlefield and everything else FPS-wise out of the water completely... and it's only in Alpha!

Here's some in-game screenshots I've taken so far! Most of these were taken on the International Conflict server.

Lesson 1 - We don't stop for nothing!
Image

A Sunday drive
Image

Myself and Shadow taking in the view!
Image

Assault on the first compound. Multiple casualties :(
Image

Free Ammo!
Image

The boys trying to shoot a helicopter down in the valley as it unloads enemy AI.
Image

Flank and move boys, flank and move.
Image

While testing our Irishs' version of Domination for the IC server, we found out that #1 boats are fun.
Image

#2 - They're very hard to get into from the water.
Image

#3 - Punk had to rescue us from enemy fire
Image

#4 - The enemy AI have mortars, and they use them.
Image

Little Birds look pretty.
Image

Shadow trying not to crash and kill us all!
Image

Pulling the noobs from their downed helicopter!
Image

Some night-time team vs team action in the IC server during our event last Saturday!
Image

Loading up a full littlebird about to hit the A-O.
Image

Another shot of the littlebird team
Image

View from inside the little bird (Sitting in the back seat)
Image

Inside the KA-90 helicopter. (Look at all the Sniper noobs! Damn pubbys!)
Image

And finally, Samo trying to fly his KA-90 after his tail rotor failed. SPOLIER: He crashed and died.

*drool*
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

Operation Flashpoint seems to have come of age at last

Nice looking game. How does it play?

The Beta release has done much to improve the games multiplayer performance although wasteland can still be a laggy mess.

That blurring affect after sprinting needs to be removed, it's really making me not want to play the game.

Nice little Wasteland server called Magnon that I've been playing on. Just type it into the terrible terrible (oh go I hope they replace it) server browser.

The single player missions and the firing range are quite good.

Oh and don't expect good multiplayer performance, the net code is not good.

Play a real game mode like Invade & Annex or Team vs Team. That Wasteland nonsense is useless. Be prepared to die. Be prepared to put time in to get used to controls, get used to flying, driving, moving, shooting, equipping the right gear for the right situation.

And make sure you have your headset plugged in! ALWAYS!

Bullplop, wasteland is a great way to get into the game and to learn about the multiplayer functionality. ARMA can be incredibly difficult and is filled with crashing bores who on occasion like to belittle new players / people without knowledge of military spec etc. Jumping straight into the complex multiplayer / co-op / single player missions is daft unless maybe you have a group of people who all want to learn. Much like Dayz, wasteland is a great into ARMA.

Arma, like any game with vehicles, should be played the Michael Bay way.

If everything isn't exploded, exploding or otherwise exothermically-enhanced, you're doing it horrifically wrong.

Take the GPS. Right Ctrl + M brings up your GPS, which you can view as long as you're not looking through a sight of some sort.

Pressing WS at the same time will put you into a slow walk instead of running full-tilt around the shop, getting knackered every 5mins.

Holy resurrection Batman!

Hello! Downloaded all the updates for this at I series but this was the first chance I got to play it.

My issue.. I'm getting 60+ fps in single player but in mp even with all setting to low, and the game looking like shite, I get a max of 15-20. Basically unplayable. CPU : 965 3.4ghz, 8gb, HD 7870.
Anyone any ideas?

It could be the MP itself. Since the maps and stuff are all player created, if you create a map or gamemode with a load of useless stuff lying around the map then your game will suffer.

Co-op is sweet in this game, but the mass multiplayer when I last played was terrible.
