  • Getting into ArmA

    HI guys

    I'm going to be getting arma some time this week, and i was just wandering what i need to download in order to play on the tg servers(s).

    I know alot of the online stuff is mods and maps so if anyone has the time would they mind posting some links to all the mods/maps played on the TG server(s) as well as the latest patch and anything else you think would be usefull.

    Look forward to seeing you all ingame soon.

    You need to be patched to v1.12 beta. No mods are required.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
    I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

      This is the link you need for info about the patch
      http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA_Beta_Patch_1.12

      It is kind of confusing unless you read the directions. You don't start the game with the normal desktop shortcut, you have to use the beta shortcut.

      If you have any questions, we will be happy to help.

          regular version should be fine...I don't think we're running any of the Queens Gambit content.

          Welcome to TG...See you on Sahrani...Please get and use a mic if you don't have one already. Thanks

            On a side note, make sure you got a mic too, way more fun if you got one.

              So I just did it...ordered ArmA off Amazon.ca should have the game in the next 3 days...hopefully just in time for the weekend.

                  If you do Steam you can save 10 bucks, if you do it from ebay or something like that you could probably save even more just to let you know..

                  Yea, Queens gambit isnt required, I'd reccomend the ArmA Effects mod, TrueFov-Accurate, TrueHeadMovement, TrueInGameUI, and TrueNVGoggles (all in Truemods, just gotta disable others).

                  Another thing; Sound mod is a neccessity. However you spell that.

                    I've looked on ebay. Couldnt find good deals. The game cost me 45.14 (39.99+txes) and Amazon ships it for free. On Ebay i had to pay for the shipping (usually racking up to 15/17$ CDN)I could have bought it on Steam...but im a freak:P I need a boxed copy of my games.

                    Kk ill look into these mods. Where can I get them?

                      I know what you mean about the box copy thing though, Steam is the only exception I do to that..

                      In armaholic it should be under downloads, addons, miscellanious (sp) then Truemods and for arma effects its either gonna be in the A's or in the M's for Matts or MadMatts Arma Effects..

                              I recommend BPARealSound ... Ive tried a few others and this is the one I always go back to. But it's really personal... and it takes about 8 seconds to try a different one so switching them out to test isnt a hassle :)

                              Good luck and welcome to ArmA!!
