  • How to get started

    Its kind of embarrassing to admit in a way, but im a new player, and in a sense scared to go on the TG server. I know how to run it and all its all updated thats fine, but its the game itsself i can barely play. I dont understand how squads work, how I use the teamspeak etc. Im confused and cant find a TGU class to ask around at, can anyone give me tips here on what to do to get started.

    Thanks a lot for any help or answers

    For any specific questions it does not answer, please refer them here, I or someone else will personally answer them. Ask as many as you like. I'm also on the arma gumflap on the teamspeak for the next half hour or so if you have questions.

        with your attitude you will fit in just fine. All you need to know is the change channel buttons "," "." and the talk over VON button which is CAPS LOCK or typing button "/"

        Now once you get in the game type that your are new to you SL which would in the group channel. the Green channel is your friend. And most of the TGers are friendly and polite and will show you the ropes.

        Once you have done couple of missions you will see how TG works.

        As far as TS goes:

        Download TS2 program:
        TS2 Download

        You should have Client for Windows (or Linux if that is your OS).

        Once installed. Go to the following page with Forum account logged in:

        TG-TS Info


        After you have logged into TS go to Arma Primary channel.

          If you need someone to walk you through how everything operates, feel free to PM me. I'd be happy to run you through SOP's for everything from how to operate stuff in ArmA2/ACE2, to proper communications, squad orders, etc.

              use the program named TSO (team speak overlay) to see who is talking on TS while ingame. it has proved very valuable for me in the past!

                i also suggest messing around in the editor if your new to arma in general, learning basic driving and piloting skills can be real helpful

                  Thanks a lot for all the advice here. I've played on the server a bit now and have overcome my newbish fears and shyness, I know basically what to do now, all I have to do is build on that. Thanks a lot for taking your time to help me out
