    Re: Arma debate

    ArmA (Armed Assault) is a first person shooter made by Bohemia Interactive, which could translate as being the "official" sequel to Operation Flashpoint, one of the most realistic shooter of all time.

    ArmA, even tho being listed as an FPS, is actually a First Person Simulation Shooter. This is not the kind of game for average joe who likes to go out there to run an gun. ArmA is a much much much slower paced game with very steep learning curves.

    It recquires far more than regular shooting skills. Its recquires patience and dedication. It might sound boring, as its not the kind of game most people are used to. The fact that its a slow game throws off a lot of people. But if you're looking for a very realistic game that puts you in the shoes of a soldier, ArmA is made for you.

    ArmA is based on the VBS engine, which is a software used by modern military (like the US and Canada) to train their soldiers.

    I could got on and on and on oh what ArmA is all about. But the best way to see how we play it here at |TG| is to take a look at our After Action Report forum, located here:
    http://www.tacticalgamer.com/armed-a...ction-reports/

    Some of them even have videos or screenshot. We're always looking for smart, mature and dedicated players to play on the TG server and you are more than welcome to give it a swirl.

    One last thing, please do me (and you) a favor. Dont play the demo. Dont even think about touching that damn thing. Its buggy as hell and will most likely throw you away from the game (almost did for me, fortunately I was an Operation Flashpoint player and I gave in anyway...I havent played a game so much in my entire life as I do with ArmA).

    When you start to play in, its literally sucks you in. You will not look at any other FPS the same way after. I swear.

          Well if you don't get ArmA because your dad aint, you're seriously missing out on something. If he doesnt and you do, he'll just see how awesome it is and he'll get it.

            ARMA2 should be out in a few months (crossing fingers for hope), but if you really want to try ARMA1, you can get the black box copy (all you need to play at TG), for $5 or less from Amazon.com and Ebay (new shrinkwraped box)

              Re: Arma debate

              Arma fits the TG mission very nicely. It requires and rewards cooperation and teamwork. Many missions will feature twenty or more players broken up into several squads working together to achieve multiple objectives. The cooperation here can go beyond covering your buddies. You might have one group landing by small boat and using AT weapons to kill an Anti-aircraft gun so that a larger group of troops can land via helicopter. A sniper team might be up on high ground observing the enemies positions and movements and reporting that back to the commander so that the rest of the infantry groups can move into the city without being ambushed.

              The weapon list is very long. SMGs and carbines are good for mobility but don't have the range or hitting power of some of the heavier guns. On the other hand, sniper rifles can disable vehicles and kill over great distances, but they're impractical in a firefight. All weapons have realistically modelled ballistic characteristics. Accurate shooting from great distances, ~1000m, requires you to compensate for wind and bullet drop.

              It's a pretty neat game. If you enjoy infantry fighting games and simulations I would suggest trying it.

                The ACE mod should be mentioned here. It is fantastic, and adds a whole new dimension to combat in Armed Assault. It is also used on the tactical gamer servers.
                Features are way to many to list in this thread, you can read about some of them here:

                http://www.acemod.net/wiki/Category:ACE_features

                If you are one of the many who got Armed Assault at release, but unnistalled in disappointment because of bugs/performance issues etc, this is definitely the right time to give it a second chance. they have done a good job at patching it.

                  Re: Arma debate

                  Well, I have played on the TG server only a couple times, but every time I am on it, I love it. Like said above, it fits in exactly to the TG primer. If you dont work as a team, your fire fight is going to be very short.

                  However, at the start of playing it can be frustrating. The realistic bullet characteristics are a bit awkward at first, and take getting used to. Also, I found just finding the enemy's and lining them up at first can be difficult, due to the distances your fighting over, there just not in your face.

                    Did they ever remove Starforce from ARMA? It always seemed like a really interesting game but I never bought it because of the copy protection.

                      Yeah. They removed it in on of the patches I believe. And you also don't need the CD to be in the drive anymore to be able to play it.

                        As I have always posted in every arma thread I come across like this:

                        DO NOT TRY THE DEMO AND DO NOT PLAY THE SINGLE PLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                        The demo is horrible compared to a patched up game (demo came out like 2 years ago). And the single player is buggy as hell. I was pissed when I bought the game and tried playing the single player. Only did 2-3 missions, and couldn't believe I had spent my money on the game. Couple days later I was board and decided to look and see if TG had a server up, jumped in, and now I'm an ARMA admin :icon_eek: :row__523:

                          And now you're breeding babies with me. Damn we both have come a long way since we bought that game....a long way indeed.

                            Are there many people playing this? Last thing I want is to get a game and find all the servers just sit empty :)
