  • My first round of Arma Insurgency!

    Well as the thread says tonight was my first experience of the above and I have to say I loved it. I get the impression its not everyone's cup of tea, but personally it was the most fun I have had on TG server's so far.

    Might be because it's an easy introduction or transition from BF2:PR, we have a long standing insurgency mode. Also the fact that you get to play on Zargabad (I assume it was that or something sharing an awful lot of the same terrain and buildings) was great as that's my favorite map.

    Looked beautiful when I was playing, got great FPS, in the 30's to 50's when FRAPS'ng at full screen, 1920 by 1200 with most things on very high.

    Another great aspect of the mode for me was that you can self start, as it were, yet take it as tactically as you want. We had some tremendous laughs, took some compounds very well and carried out some nice fire and maneuver.

    I will spend some time this week making the video and throw it on here, the FRAPS raw footage looks awesome.

    If you ever want to give some PR players their first taste of Arma I would highly recommend this version. I appreciate it may not be to every regular Arma players' taste but for me it was spectacular, I could see myself squad leading in that mode happily. I could also see other PR vet's slotting in smoothly and having a great time. Please run this as regularly as you can (communities wishes allowing).

    Thanks very much to all who played tonight, best night's gaming I have had in a very long time, bloody marvelous chaps!

        Sat at work today chuckling about some of the funny things that happened, not all of which I managed to get on Fraps.

        CorpDuty is trying to rescue a wounded team mate in a compound, he hugs the wall, edging closer to the corner. He is feet in front of me and the odd random round pings off the sandstone.

        "I'm going to throw smoke and then drag him out of there" he shouts

        Smoke is thrown

        "Where'd it go, I can't see it"

        By now I can hardly talk I am laughing so hard. The red smoke grenade has somehow stuck to the wall directly above him and to the left, sending a giant plume of colourful smoke skyward, signalling our presence to all and sundry. The volume of fire on our position seems to greatly increase, we run away.

        Regrouping we set out again, Corp stumbles on a sneaky insurgent hiding in a house behind a partially open door. Corp flings the door open, steps into the funnel of death (doorway) and aggressively brandishes his........bright red smoke grenade lol. The Insurgent hacks him down.:icon_lol:

          Yeah, thanks for taking the time to play with us guys. We had an awesome time. I think Live Opfor is fun, I liked it when the 99th stepped up. We had a lot of good fights.

              It was pretty fun last night. Although, those RPGs were getting quite annoying :) I'm just surprised that we had managed to stumble on the cache in Bastam. My props to Corp for finding that cache.

                I really like the insurgency game mode. Especially for smallish groups.

                      Video of the Insurgency round, brightness is a bit off and somewhat blurry for 1080P, not sure why but there you go. Not very tactical but amused me!

                        Would it be to hard to port this to ACE+ACRE?

                          Not at all, I have a (slightly old) ACE/ACRE version sitting on my PC and it took me about 2/3 hours in total in the end (Although it only works occasionally due to a bug which has since been fixed by the devs of the mission). The most time consuming part was adding all of the weapons, in the end I wrote a tool to do it for me in 5 seconds as opposed to 5 hours.

                          I think there is an ACE version out there now, but if there isn't I would be willing to ACE/ACRE'fy the latest version of Insurgency if there is any interest.

                          Some of the most fun I have had playing ArmA has been playing Insurgency with ACE and ACRE.

                            Hehehe.

                            My ATV doughnuts are the jealousy of the ARMA community.


                            Had a great time playing with you Wicks, hope to see you on the battlefield some more.

                              I think this (below) is the ACE version, I d/l'd it last night and had it up and running in a LAN CO-OP with ACE running, don't know about ACRE.
