  • So its here...

    What a nice surprise uh? Game was supposed to arrive on monday...but this morning when I tracked my package it was at the distribution center next to where i live...

    I came back from college and was pretty anxious...got to the mailbox only to find that little key... a key to a much larger mailbox next to mine :P. Came back home and thoroughly unsealed the box.

    So yeah im pretty excited...played a bit in the armory (thanks god, controls are the same as OFP so i can remember most of em). And I obviously have a few questions.

    1st: I read that I can unlock everything in the armory...how?

    2nd: If im not mistaken I read there is ArmA Launcher (??) to manage which mods I can use (or something along these line). If its true..what should I use?

    3rd: Is there tweaks that can give me a boost in performance? (not that i lag ALOT but i could always use better FPS :P). I disabled AA.

    4th: I've been playing with you guys on your PR server for a while...and actually I'm wondering how I can join TG.

    Well...im downloading the 1.08 patch on my desktop computer (its wired...faster than the wireless of my laptop and cant be bothered to plug it). so if everything goes well I should be playing with u guys on the server tonight.

    This is all for now. I'll EDIT if i have any further questions.

    Anything else I should know?

    Welcome to ArmA.

    There aren't many tweaks that I know of. And yes there is an ArmA launcher, but being bullheaded like I am, I don't use it or know where to get it. :p

    Just one thing you ought to know about me: I'm Deaf, so don't bother trying to use voice chat with me. Type it out if you got something important to say to me. :)

    Hey guys, this is a public service announcement from NKato. I am Deaf, so when the helo goes down, you're best off typing "AAAAAAAAIIIEEEEE!!!" instead of attempting to scream it. Thanks!

      Perhaps you could add the deaf thing to your sig on TG? That way you don't have to post it in every other post on these forums.

      As to the OP, read this, then read the TG SOPs.

        Welcome to the Arma side of things.

        If you haven't already, check out:

        http://www.tacticalgamer.com/armed-a...questions.html

        Helpful Arma Guide:
        http://dslyecxi.com/armattp.html

        The servers are currently running on the 1.12 beta patch:
        http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA_Beta_Patch_1.12

        Regarding a few of your questions:

        1st: Perhaps try what is suggested by Redd_Wiggler in another post:
        you can also acess the choppers (and EVERYTHING else) in the armory by doing this: hold "left shift" and the "-" (minus) on the numpad, then release and type "getallgear".

        you wont see anything you type, but if you did it correctly, nothing in the armory will be locked anymore. this will allow you to try any vehicle, aircraft or weapon.

        you will need to do this every time you want to un-lock the armory.

        3rd:
        Is there tweaks that can give me a boost in performance? (not that i lag ALOT but i could always use better FPS :P). I disabled AA.

        Being that Tactical Gamer is a community of like minded gamers and not a "Clan" you are pretty much there.:) Read the SOP's and rules for the games you're active in and do your best to follow them.
        If your talking about adding the |TG| tags on your ingame name, read this post it has some general guide lines.

            I don't use any of the ArmA launchers. It was actually easier for me to create a handful of shortcuts than it was to figure out a launcher. Typically you always load the same things anyway, but maybe one is Sounds A and the other is Sounds B.
