  • Unfortunately I have to at this time take a leave from the Arma Community/Arena

    Members of the TG Arma Community/Arena,

    Unfortunately I have to take a extended leave of absence from playing Arma for the time being, I hope that since I bought it off of steam this will allow me to in the coming months to re-download and install it, but we shall see.

    Bottom line was that I had to free up space on the computer that I use and share with the rest of my family (I moved back home due to a new job about almost 1.5/2 years, and well the start up hasn't allowed me to move out) so since I share it, and since my brother is a newlywed who is expecting, my parents have since figured out how to use a digital camera, and well have been uploading feverishly since the longest day of my brothers life, i.e. June 21st.

    It is unfortunate that ARMA had to go, but hopefully I will be back, and who knows, maybe the next time I see you all on the battlefield it will be in ARMA or ARMA 2.

    Dude that sucks!!!

    If it is simple as getting another hard drive, I think plenty of us can send you one!!!!

      hard drives are pretty cheapos...

      I say we start a TG fundraising to help him out.

          I will see what I can do, can't promise anything right now, hopefully i can re-DL it from steam if I get another HD, though I'm not even sure if there's a slot inside the dell computer to put it in, but I will see what i can do.

          Hopefully once I obtain a printer some how for cheap (pray that circuit city is still open this weekend maybe) my mom can print the photos and start deleting some of them.

            FYI, 4x6 photo paper is probably about $0.15 per sheet... and the ink is probably more than that. walmart charges $0.09 per 4x6 print or something like that... so please don't buy a printer to print out pics yourself, you will feel extreeeeeemely stupid :)

            good luck with the harddrive!

              walmart has HDs pretty cheap and you just gotta install it....or better yet...get your own PC.
              that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                If you bought it on steam, its yours for life and you can download it as many times as you need to, take it from me. I am always having to re-download my games every few months as I rebuild my computers and upgrade hardware. As long as you log in with the same account you will have no problems downloading it again. As for an external hard drive, for digital pics, I cant see you needing more than a 250GB external drive. It will be plenty fast and have plenty of space. And they are very reasonably priced. Here is a compact 250GB drive for $69.99 with free shipping.

                  Mate,

                  Get ya Mum a USB stick (4 or 8 gig) she can then download ALL pictures, video, etc onto that thus saving the hard drive. If this is not an option, External hard drives can also be USB, so you dont need any slots inside the pooter!

                  If all that fails.... you may just have to "break up" with your Mum....you know....tell her it's not her, it's you...and you just need some space...it's just not working out...etc etc....

                  ;)

                  Priorities man!!!

                  :D

                    I don't think trying to run a game off a USB drive is a good idea. USB is much slower than like SATA, or even IDE, so it may not even work right. But you can get an 80gig HD from newegg for $35. DO NOT GO TO CIRCUIT CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They only have 10% off computer parts, and they are still 2X the price you can get it from newegg, even with the deal. (same goes for walmart or bestbuy.)

                    Randy, if you need help picking one and putting it in, catch me on TS or xfire and I will hook you up. It will be super easy.

                      I think he was talking about putting the pictures onto USB drives. Though I could be wrong...

                      Just grab an external USB hard drive like everybody has been saying. Cheap, and all you have to do is find an open USB port, and that's it. Windows does the rest of the work.

                        I was dumbstuck to find you can get a terabyte hard drive at Best Buy these days. Seriously, sell one of your siblings and get a hard drive!

                            B also needs to take the time off... Thanks for the games. TG will always be the place for me to come for any gaming interest I have.

                            May be I will catch you guys in Arma2. May is when I plan to return if things are still strong. :icon12:
