    How Can I Get Connected to the Tactical Gamer Servers?
    Information for our Armed Assault servers is available here. Our Public server is protected by a password, which you'll find available in that same thread. We encourage you to join our Public server when the password is in place, but since you'll have to visit these forums to obtain it we'll also expect that you're familiar with our rules and procedures (see Standard Operating Procedures below).

    Normally when we have the password in place it's to ensure high quality games, but sometimes we may host special closed events or team practices.


    What are the Standard Operating Procedures?
    We have some Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Armed Assault that we'd like to have players on our server know and try to utilize during game play. They exist to make our Armed Assault games together better, so please become familiar with them. Extending these SOPs, as well as adding new ones, will happen if/as needed as we all get more involved with the game. Please feel free to offer input and suggestions.

    Re: Welcome!

    Q. If I download the Czech or German version will I need to buy another copy when it's released in the United States?

    A. No. All versions will be compatible with each other when the U.S. version comes out.


    This comes from a post Faultline put up asking the same exact question.

            Sorry for the noob question, but how do you check frame rate?

              Hi Dillon. Welcome to TG...I don't think there is an ingame tool that measures frame rate. Most folks use FRAPS I belive to do that. I chose not to as I'm squeezing as many FPS as possible as I can. This is a demanding title on hardware and Fraps can use up substantial resources.

              C'mon to our server and play some Arma with us. Just read the sop's and server rules before you do and get ready for fun.

                Dillon,There is a handy freeware called Teamspeak Overlay. It's easily downloaded and is a beta but it works fine for me and it allows you to see who exactly is speaking in your channel while in game. FPS is also visible in game by default with TSO.

                  I just got this today. I HIGHLY recommend it.

                  It also has a FPS display and a <i>clock</i>. I'm always getting lost in how long I've played so it's nice to have a clock right there.

                      You might want to try the BI forums:

                      http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bi.../ikonboard.cgi

                      I've never heard of ArmA Reloaded, so I'm not exactly sure what your referring too..ArmA2 hada been recently announced and there is a new expansion Queen's Gambit to be released in the next month..but beyond that nothing has been announced......is Reloaded a mod?

                          Yeah, i think there is an impending announcement about this...but I'm not sure what the content will be...

                          Although anything will be announced on the BI forums first for sure....

                              You need to be up to 1.8 then you can connect to the servers.

                              - It's who you game with.
