what do you expect?
shitty game saved by a community game mod thatll popularize something dumb again
Probably an Arma 4 announcement, but it comes out in 2024.
i want to live in a world where dayz was never created
>>598928467because every single thing they made prior to to dean hall flooding games with zombie types was kino, everything made after was half baked/canned halfway through and they started taking pro tips from paradox interactive on DLC
>>598928059Arma 4 with even more jank than arma 2 and 3 combined.
>>598928059Hopefully Arma 4. Arma 3 is old and crusty now.
Jank engine with mod support
>>598928059I want to like arma but the enemy ai just takes a few shots with no blood then keels over and dies. Is this the intended effect? it fucking sucks. Red orchestra / rising storm is much better and came out a billion years ago
>>598928059Arma Life Standalone
>>598928059arma 4 kino
>>598929480>Red orchestra / rising storm is much better and came out a billion years agothey don't focus on remotely the same thingsthe gunplay in arma is pretty lackluster but the fun comes from organizing different elements in a mission with a large group of people and carrying out objectives, but a lot of people treat it like any other fps and just go into king of the hill and understandably think its shit
Arma 4Set in Notukraine 20 minutes into the futureMin requirements: 3080 Ti
>>598930317what's the point of carrying out objectives in a multiplayer fps if shooting enemies is so unsatisfying?
>>598930317>>598930482arma gunplay is great thoughdid we play the same game?
>>598928059They're calling it "Arma Platform", which makes me think it's going to be gay.
>>598930546>enemy spots you from a mile away>takes exactly 3 shots to the chest barely flinching >keels over and diesno, its not.
>>598929480Get the new Bloodlust mod from Nexus (the steam workshop one can’t be updated) and one of the improved ragdoll mods. Makes arma feel like a video game
>>598930546>arma gunplay is great thoughcompared to other games it's pretty shit, but it does the job for what it is and varies depending on assets>>598930482because working with your team to accomplish things is fun
>>598930692>>takes exactly 3 shots to the chest barely flinching>t. fought csat with 556
>>598928059Another bunch of real life army bases that they almost got shot over trying to film.
>>598930719is good advice about modders saving the game>>598930764>>598930725are fanboy faggots who never touch pussy
>>598930692>>598930725sounds like you need to git gud
>>598930935Dayz standalone is better than singleplayer arma. Player interaction in a shitty unfinished zombie game is better than Arma enemy AI
>>598931059singleplayer arma is awful
>>598931092hat's what arma advertises as their game though. Less than 1% of the population has a discord full of homo milsim larpers who have never fucked a pussy before
>>598931258a3 is just fine on public serverskoth is fun
>>598930719This. I use Project Injury Reaction and it completely changed the experience. No more AI dabbing as he gets shot. I saw one clutch his chest as he collapsed on his side. I also use VCom AI. I consider Bloodlust, an AI mod of your choosing and PIR the bare minimum.
>>598931339No its not the shooting is garbage. If you are going to play KOTH just play insurgency or red orchestra.
>>598928059An awful selection of firearms for the game that are all the exact same plastic shit with no real variety. The small arms of these games are my main draw in and not having a large selection of them was arma 3's biggest issue. I would rather play 86 from tripwire then faggots 4 with six flavors of tan or brown AR clones. Even tarkov does not understand whats fun about guns. Who puts a fucking 416 in a video game and uses the mr556 model and not the kino early model with the diopter drum sights. It should be a felony to put both a 416 and an any other AR and not use the fucking di opter for the 416. Fuck those gay ass troy flip ups.
If it's well optimized, less jank, I'm content,
>>598931432shooting is not garbage thoughinsurgency is trashro2/rs2 is different kind of fun
>>598931532so what is the draw of arma koth? Le big maps? lmao you have no taste. Shooting in arma is dogshit
>>598928059>what do you expectmodern warfare i.e. drones droning drones
>>598931582you just can't appreciate the brilliance of arma autism
>>598928059It's time they made a BR
>>598929480There's not a blood spray everywhere when someone gets shot like in the movies.
>>598931632exactly. It is dogshit and only appeals to autistic milsim fags who care more about fictional uniforms than gameplay
>>598931772Why don't you try shooting yourself and let me gauge the amount of blood sprayfucking faggot go back to >reddit
kino and more seethe from squad vrchat faggots
>>598931362I *almost* agree but I’ve had enough weird shit happen with PIR that I just used the ragdoll from it, and eventually phased it out for Improved Ragdolls+ (iirc the beta version is more up to date)Not saying people shouldn’t give PiR a try, I haven’t seen it in a couple years at this point
>>598931818No, I just have good taste in multiplayer shooter games. Year one rainbow six siege >>>>>>>>>> arma king of the hill. Even dayz standalone is more playable
>>598931970>siegelmao, literal faggot
the final step arma needs to begin revolutionizing is ai. if they can begin to be genre defining with ai that can be fixed to participate in any game mode theyll change the world.obviously they wont and well get super clunky garbage 10 years behind in community content.
>>598932014kill yourself elitist loser who doesn't care about gameplay, only larp autism
>>598932124I care about the gameplay, and Siege is one of the biggest piles of shit I have ever played, but such should have been expected from ubisoft.
>>598931832Dumb faggot, haven't you ever seen a clip of even one person being shot? Even a headshot doesn't produce any immediate spray unless it's a high calibre round.
>>598932234>calibreEuropean shit who has never touched a gun in his life. You can't even shoot yourself to prove my experiment LMAO
>>598931970>rainbow six siegagreed Arma 3 is trash it needs 30 GB of mods to be goodWith Rainbow you dont have to install shit just run the game thats it, its not realistic but neither is Arma
>>5989322341: youre a retard and a fag2: i like engaging responses from my games not the most accurate fucking history channel footage
>>598931832have you not seen enough ISIS videos on /gif/?
>>598932325yeah that is your future you european faggot! lmao can't wait to watch your beheading
Just want moving around the world and interacting with things to be less fucking jank.
>Arma 4>Shit performance>+200GB>Shitload of DLCs
>>598932467noyou get prettier graphics and some better sound effects
>>598932453whiter than you ottoman rape baby. I even have my foreskin. Have fun being poor and never owning land. Only 8 months wait for your 'free' doctor appointment!
>>598932289Go and watch any police shooting video, you'll see your fellow niggers getting dropped with no fanfare.
I literally don't care about military shooters anymore. As long as they are online, there's no point in playing them because of hacking.
I really want a setting that is AT MOST modern. 10-30 years ago would be peak though.
>>598932318>Plays a game whose whole point is realism>Complains that it's not like a Hollywood movieFucking retard
>>598932680arma hit detection and reaction is still shit. Even if I watched every IRL shooting video on the internet
Better AI neverever
>>598932745I have spent a decade and a half playing exclusively in the editor making my own mini-missions. With the exception of great procedural mission generators of Arma 3. Anyone that plays online is a fool.
>>598932763It's a remake of Operation Flashpoint.https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/018417023
>>598932906fucking retarded image. Are you gonna cry about /pol/ too lmao
>>598932763Agree, late 80s Cold War gone hot scenario is the peak of battlefield aesthetics.
>>598932945Why would I ever go to pol?
>>598932991point stands. Your argument = booty blasted. Maybe reddit or resetera can be your video game discussion safe space
>>598932787>>598932906hey dipshits, arma is simulating the combat, not the arterial spray. i chose to add that because its cool. gameplay is completely unaffected. kys spergs
>>598933120does my criticism of arma trigger you that much faggot?
>>598928059They are going to finally put the OFP engine to rest and make a game that can finally run on more than a single coreAlso if this is going to be Arma 4 hopefulky we get girls in it so we can have cool mevha anime mods with girl pilots
>>598933358Arma 3 already runs on more than one core.
>>598933384why would u lie to us all like this
>>598930867faggot, i never said anything about not using mods
>>598932512the graphics are not even that good meanwhile the main engine is dogshitArent they polish that explains a lot polish people are retarded
Hopefully Arma 4,a better filter of casuals.
>>598930546Every time an enemy gets hit, they turn into a spaghetti monster for half a second, then they start shooting you like a professional marksman from a mile away, despite just taking a round to the chest. The guns are fine. The targets are what make them unsatisfying to shoot, in comparison to Arma 2.
>>598933358> Women> real militaryNgmi
More hilariously overpriced DLC and intrusive attempts to sell it to the player.
>>598928467DayZ effectively killed Arma 2 multiplayer.
>>598928059Paid mods.Bohemia Launcher.Always online.Subscription for various equipment.Chink pandering.No missions, no maps, all community made and then sold.
>all the good Arma 3 servers are russianI don't want to play with russians.
>>598935610Ukrainians said the same but here we are
>>598935454You have Arma 3 multiplayer.
>>598936435Yes but Arma 3 multiplayer sucks.
>>598936435Full of cringy Americans larping as soldiersI'll keep making my scenarios with Alive, thank you.
>>598937860Just find a better server.
>>598935573Bohemia is not that jewish.
>>598936435hyper strict "GET IN LINE SOLDIER" milsim fagsor arma life serversNo
>>598937860>>598939915you're still seething in this thread all these hours later?
If they're smart, it'll be compatible with currently available content mods for 3. I can imagine scripts etc will have to be redone, though, unless the engine can still read the old scripts and maybe even translate them to the new language.
>>598931582Arma is more of a sim as opposed to a regular FPS. There are cool mods and stuff but the main focus is on the missions and scales of them. I used to play it a lot but then got bored because none of my friends played and the AI wasn't the brightest. But it definitely shines with a good group.
>>598939745No. Worse. Chinkish.
>>598940170As much as I hate Amerilards this this is not me.
>>598941132They're not controlled by chinese, tencent bought a minority stake.
1980's cold war would be nice
>>598941273>"minority stake">he doesn't knowlook at all other companies that have tencent "minority stake". They pander to them as much as possible for the false promise of increased playerbase.
>>598941423Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crisis
Actual arma dev here.It's the Operation Flashpoint remake on the new Enfusion Engine, which will be a testbed for the new engine.It won't have all the new features, but it will have mod support.No custom .dll support like Arma 3, will come later.Next Arma game, might not even have 4 in name, is few years away.
>>598943078You better keep the fucking music intact.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHfWQTiuLJA
If its really are OFP remake, i hope they included the Resistance and Red Hammer missions intact instead of selling them as optional DLCs or something.
>>598928467DayZ and Minecraft have been disastrous for gaming
>>598931970>rainbow six siege1 of 2 games I've ever refunded.Shit game, shit fans.
>>598944552How do you even make it work even?
>>598943078Is it going to be on console?
>>598944552>>598945516Consoles mean money, simple as that. Also OFP was already on consoles, google OFP Elite, it was the first remake of OFP exclusive to XboxHuge.
>>598943928No Codemasters content, we don't have rights to it. It won't be called "Operation Flashpoint" either, we have the rights to the game but not the name.
>>598945617so if you got it running on consoles does this at least mean performance issues (particularly when in huge online coop games) have been fixed with the new engine. I mean if it can run on a shitty PS5, modern computers should be able to handle it right. Be honest here, did the game take any hits to complexity or mechanics? will consoles have mod support the same way skyrim manages mods on consoles.
>>598928059>greatest dreams-Star citizen tier vehicle physics, ie you can walk onto a helicopter and move around on it while it's flying. Able to load vehicles on transports by driving onto them, able to jump out of a plane by running off the rear hatch.-full valve index support-integrated voice command system.>greatest nice to haves-more terrain specific vehicles, ie snow mobiles, more amphibious vehicles-bigger maps for fighter jets-space-based terrainI just want to play Dynamic Universal War Simulator or Dynamic Recon Ops in vr and command my units with voice comms.
>>598945680>>598945617ARMA4 SOGPF when. Did you guys give Savage Game Design the green light?
>>598945868i doubt it will have good physics. I pray for the day ARMA can have realistic destruction instead of the object damage state method they currently use but that sounds too taxing considering the map sizes and the amount of buildings you can destroy on a big ARMA map.
>>598945835>does this at least mean performance issues (particularly when in huge online coop games) have been fixed with the new engineYes, it's a completely new engine, unlike Arma 3 which STILL uses code that goes back to the original Flashpoint.The downside is that backwards compatibility with assets and mods will not be anywhere near as good as people were used to, but it's the sacrifice that's necessary. You can't have cake and eat it too, either you take new engine or you take legacy code, can't have both.More complex AI calculations will still be taxing of course, just not anywhere near as bad as it was until now as it's actually multi-threaded now. Reason why Arma AI runs so badly is because it only runs off one CPU core in essence and bottlenecks like hell.
>>598945901We invited them to cooperate with us but I don't know more than that, I think they wanted to become standalone studio now so hard for me to tell, I'm not high up in the food chain to be in the know, sorry.
>>598945991what about the scripting language? did that change too? I used a lot of scripts to do all kinds of awesome stuff in my missions, I'm guessing a new engine means all that old knowledge is irrelevant for A4?
The least amount of campaign/"game" content they have ever put out. This will be a mod/community driven engine first.
>>598945991ok so old mods are kaput, is mod support still as robust though? are full conversion mods like all the awesome ones we saw for A3 still possible? how about things like ACE and ACRE/TFAR? any hope of just integrating that level of Radio comms in A4 so we don't have to use mods and TS?
>>598946168>>598946362Yes, instead of sqf you'll now have UE-style blueprints. Though manual code is still supported, just might not be available with this release.Again, this is going to be just a testbed for the new engine and won't have all features.So no big mod support from Day 1, as THIS IS NOT ARMA 4.ACE got contracted by US DoD so don't expect that either.
>>598947161wuh? no ACE? Whats ARMA milsim without ACE. all the major groups use it. people will just have to build a new ACE with the new engine?
>>598947161Are you the newguy from their recent video? The one in sopmod T-shirt.
>>598928059ARMA's problems these days seem to be entirely down to the AI being pretty terrible.If they kept everything the same, but, improved the AI significantly, I'd be happy. Better graphics, animations, but still the same dogshit AI and there's literally no point.
>>598947161How's the AI?
>>598947161>ACE got contracted by US DoD so don't expect that either.wrong boyo, that's ACRE, they are outside of ACE team
>>598948713So it's basically just OP Flashpoint?
>>598948939a short version of it, only forcus on resistance partand it's not arma 4, just a test game for the new engine
>>598948713>console-oriented What the FUCK
God, IMAGINE just IMAGINE optimized Arma 4
>>598949098Read the whole sentence, again.>Introduce Arma to a new, console-oriented, audience.It means PC+console.
>>598949306Except it not being Arma 4 probably means its a streamlined, more focused game, for this console-oriented audience. Like how could you even map half of Arma's buttons on a controller?
>>598949098I have no fear judging by how autistic developers are. And they know the story of Red River (I know it's not their game).
>>598949414>Like how could you even map half of Arma's buttons on a controller?Yeah. It's more like people underestimate amount of buttons gamepads have and active buttons you use in game.
>>598948713>6 vehicles>18 weaponsIt's going to be a tiny game.>>598949414It's hard but possible, there is a game called Kerbal Space Program and they managed to make it playable on consoles.
>15 weapons>6 vehicles>smaller map than fucking a PUBG mapI am thinking its going to launch with a Battle Royale mode.
>>598948713>North America>Stable internet connection
>PS4 and Xbox One versionImagine a version of Arma so god damn optimized they think it can run on last gen consoles too
I hope they'll make animation and weapon modding easier, most weapon mods are fucking shit in a3.
>>598950513It's much easier when a game finally utilizes more than one core.
>>598949859With that amount of content, the game will die in a few weeks, unless they manage to surprise us.
>>598928059hopefully arma 4, and hopefully arma 4 can actually be played at a decent framerate
>>598950826It's not Arma 4.>>598948713
>>598949818>multiplatform workshopYOU SEE NOW!?! I TOLD YOU FAGS IT WAS CONSOLE BUT NOOOOOOO ARMA IS TOO GOOD FOR CONSOLES YOU SAID.
Sorry I was doing some housework.>>598947497>>598948907I was told ACE as a whole got contracted, maybe there was some miscommunication, don't shoot the messenger.>>598947943You do realize it's not a question I'd ever answer right?>>598948624Slightly better than usual, but nothing groundbreaking.>>598948939Yes.>>598948996It's not Resistance, it's only base OFP. And no Red Hammer is ever planned, we don't own that period.
>>598950974I'm not sure how modding will work on Snoy platforms. They're cucking mods in Skyrim unlike on Xbox. I think it's pretty based for them not denying it's not Arma 4 and kinda demo for Arma 4
>>598950996Also to give people the sense of scale, think of it as a "bigger" equivalent of Battlefield 1943, I guess.
>>598951091Sony on skyrim doesn't allow sound mods. So adding new sound effects is likely out. I'll say anything that requires 3rd party scripting tool is also not happening. Pretty much you get remodels with the stock sound effects.
>>598928059I hope they improve the CQB gameplay, similar if not better than Ready or Not
>>598949414>Like how could you even map half of Arma's buttons on a controller?Most of Arma's control options are superfluous or duplicative, for example, there is a dedicated button to toggle combat stance but you assume combat stance automatically anyway if you aim or press fire while running, you don't really need more than standard FPS controls and some radial submenus mapped to the dpad for more specific functions like changing zero or utilising dual optics.The only tricky part will be implementing squad command.
Anyway I'm off, I will just leave this here as last gift:anonfiles com/r9Bft9g4yc/arma_reforger_marcom_guide3_1_pdf
>>598951627don't open it it makes mustard gas!
>>598948713Sounds like they want the Squad audience.
>>598951627>502 Bad GatewayBros...my brother died from this link
RIP in piss /a3g/
>>598928059Showing off their new engine plus maybe a new game announcement.>>598948539They also need to streamline the editor so people dont need to learn a whole new coding language just to do simple shit in missions.
>>598939745They have grabbed all ideas from community. Even my. After the next generation of payshit came out.I wrot lots of scripts for Flashpoint and you can see them until now.For example if you fire a gun in DAYZ. Sometime a zombie will appear. That's a function of my AI Addon I wrote for OFP 15 years ago.15 years man! Innovation is otherwise,
>>598950996>You do realize it's not a question I'd ever answer right?Yeah I know, just wanted to say that's a cool t-shirt.
>>598949098not new ground
>>598951627Better than A3 at least
Did leaker say anything what they will show? Gameplay trailer? Or cinematic one?
>>598928059>what do you expect?Janky shit on an outdated engine. What do i win?
>war is... le bad
>>598953915Engine is brand new.
Bros do you think they will release this year?How long does it usually take for them to set a release date after announcement?
PIR seems cool but so many of my mods are dependent on the main ACE3 mod it's impossible for me to use it without losing over 3/4 of the shit I love.Granted ACE tends to go in the opposite direction and turn everyone into bullet sponges if they have Level ll protection or higher. Having to mag dump 556 into AAF soldiers can get tiring
>>598953946What the fuck did they mean by this.
>>598955072>want to meet the developers>can summon them by committing in-game warcrimesseems like a win-win
>>598951627So i wonder if is it going to be a scene for scene remake of OFP or will they just do a different kind of story. It seems like the devs are trying to actually flesh out the story this time, with the Everon looking like an actual country with the anthems and head of state and all that, so i wonder if the original framework even fits. I have to say i never expected OFP to get remade but i suppose with the age of remake/remaster, its inevitable in a way.
Hard to believe it was almost 10 years ago.
>>598958317I want /a3g/ back
>>598958317beta arma 3 was soul
>>598954796arma 3 was in early access for like 2 years
>>598959112nice, i put probably 500 hours into the alpha/beta and almost none into the actual release
Even miss the retarded drama.
>>598958754Once Reforger comes out it'll come back.Along with Crusty.......
>>598959686Sounds like something crusty would say.
>>598928114sounds based to me
Console babies aren't going to like not having widespread access to scopes/red dots.
>targeting consoles firstOH NO NO NOIt's over
> OH NO 1 IS DOWN
>>598949818Shilka, BMP, T72, Abrams, UAZ, Jeep, that's already 6 vehicles. That's like 30% of the necessary LAND vehicles for the OFP campaign, what the fuck are they doing?
>not Arma 4Well fug, guess I'll wait another 10 years
>>598962002I saw: UAZ, BTR-60, Willys, Humvee, M939, M113. There was also Huey and Chinook on concept arts.
>>598949445Pretty sure most arma players are blue collar.
>>598949445How did they know, armabros?
>>598963087>how did they know
