            Posting a graphics card confirms you have no idea what you're taking about lol. The game was developed for single core processors and for some reason the devs never thought about future proofing or even looked at multicore processors, which were available at the time of development.

                Prove it and I'll go buy one right now then lol. I can run every new game out right now at around 140fps but with Arma 3 I only get like max 40 fps in any solo scenario that involves more than like 40 npcs.

                It's the AI, ARMA AI is really inefficient at conserving processor resources. That is also a CPU bottleneck and all the GPU upgrades in the world wont fix it.

        >i have no idea how computers process games but i'm gonna vomit my opinion up anyway
        Mod list only affects ram usage dumbass, the biggest hit with ARMA is draw distance and number of active AI. From what i've found it's always a processer bottleneck trying to bring in AI units, thats why the campaigns play like a bethesda title, the engine can't handle big AI battles efficiently.

      This game is a top 5 for me but the fricking GOD AWFUL performance from that fricked engine makes me never want to play it. How the devs thought it was okay to just roll with it instead of taking the time to unfrick the way it distributes CPU load is beyond me, but oh well. ARMA 4 should drop in the next decade so woohoo for that.

      I feel like every game I touch is CPU heavy rather than GPU heavy. Arma is particularly weird in how single player performance will mog multiplayer.

      Armaverse version could work. Indonesia has a nice eclectic selection of weapons and vehicles. I'm more partial to a bush war, my dream would be an Arma 4 that takes place in a fictionalized Armaverse post-colonial conflict modeled after Angola with bits and pieces of Congo and so on. You'd be able to depict a high variance of sahel/savannah style terrain, dense jungles, mountains and urban. There's a high variety of small arms to depict, classic soviet surplus, as well as a focus on vehicles that I think suit arma far more than tanks and planes: COIN/CAS planes, helicopters, lots of MRAP/pseudo-MRAPs, APCs, armored cars.

      My hunch is A4 is going to be early-mid 90s not-yugoslavia situation.

      Arma 4 doesn't change the way it distributes the CPU load either

      Ok.
      BI hyped it up as a tech demo for their next main installment. You know, all new cutting edge engine and all that shit. Even had months of teasers and ester eggs for the community, driving up the hype.
      What came of it?
      >Engine
      Buggy mess, most shit doesn't even work (and never will)
      >Graphics
      Can't even compete with games from 2010, like character models and shit
      >Networking
      2 years have passed and it still doesn't work most of the time. Just go to steam and see people, the few that still care, complain
      >physics
      Better than Arma2/3 for sure but miles from where it should be. Cars drive like shit, helicopters are shit. Gearbox is trash.
      >environment
      They can't even turn on destruction because it's probably not working at all. Oh yea, vehicles have 2 states no progress there either.
      >General feel
      It's a console shooter, only it can't compete with other console shooters cause everything other shooters have this one lacks. No, not having a marker of your position on the map, because they can't code it in, doesn't make it milsim
      >AI
      Doesn't exist
      >Game master
      None really, what you have is a parody, might as well play G-mod
      >Mods
      They had the balls to tell modders "go make mods" for a broken "game" that has no content and won't even work most of the time. They really gambled on morons making game themselves.
      >Roadmap
      Abandoned
      >post release
      They split the game in two (experimental) just to make it seem that they actually are doing something. (You can release updates twice)
      >Updates
      They can't really do shit so they will post shit like "How the music was made", "how the cinematics were made" "Top 5 moronic mods in an empty game" and so on

      And don't fricking tell me this was all a misunderstanding and they didn't know what shit they are selling to get 30 bucks before they go bust.
      Company that made the ultimate milsim released shit that can't compete with freeware like OHDS. It's an insult to the community and milsim gamers.
      >inb4 butthurt
      Yes

      The other issue with mods is that the terms for it give Bohemia the rights to the mods to use them as they see fit so modders are making the assets and giving them to Bohemia for free. With the steamworkshop the modders get to keep the rights to their mods to stop rippers.

      yes please,
      from what i know the only big change for arma 4 is it is rumored to not have a campaign or any story missions planned

      bi seems quite disapointed by the fact that the majority of players have not played the arma 3 campaign (this is contrary to the previous arma games)
      only 25% of players have played at least one scenario
      only 24% of players completed the bootcamp tutorial campaign
      only 10% of players completed the first act of the main campaign
      only 4.3% completed the second act
      only 3.5% completed the third act
      only 2.4% completed the co-op campaign
      the other campaign completion rates are 1.6%, 1.6%, 1.5%, 1.4%, 0.5%

      also interestingly only 24% of players have played on tanoa at least once or even opened it in the editor

      arma 3 sold 10.5 million units so 1% still means 105,000 players

      The campaign is fun when you're an insurgent doing hit and run raids but when it grows in scale and you have to command a lot of ai that aren't very good it stops being fun quickly.
      The Old Man scenario was fun as it was more guerilla hit and run, or hit a position and clear it, set traps for the next wave, ambush them and then when they send a helicopter in the final wave blow that up.

        I agree, just rolling around the islands doing side missions and collecting better gear to better hit AAF checkpoints is where its at, reminiscent of the OFP campaign but much more intuitive and freeform. As soon as you reconnect with NATO command and get your own squad the campaign goes off a cliff, which is a pity because I dont dislike the plot, I just hate playing it.

          Yeah the character also gets too much responsibility for his position, it should have stayed as a small team creating despair and despondency on the edge of and behind enemy lines.
          The only time I've had fun in arma controlling multiple units in battles was in anti-stasi plus before the modder ruined it, assaulting positions with platoons, armour, airstrikes and mortars whilst responding to the enemies use of armour, reinforcements, and QRF against mortars. I managed to get battles lasting hours playing it that way, eventually either taking the objective or having to withdraw or losing it in the counter attack.

          I will never forgive those Czechia shits for abandoning the Old Man campaign so soon after launch. It is easily the best insurgency themed campaign concept in a modern game. Some day I will make an hour long video essay gushing about it.

                Ok.
                BI hyped it up as a tech demo for their next main installment. You know, all new cutting edge engine and all that shit. Even had months of teasers and ester eggs for the community, driving up the hype.
                What came of it?
                >Engine
                Buggy mess, most shit doesn't even work (and never will)
                >Graphics
                Can't even compete with games from 2010, like character models and shit
                >Networking
                2 years have passed and it still doesn't work most of the time. Just go to steam and see people, the few that still care, complain
                >physics
                Better than Arma2/3 for sure but miles from where it should be. Cars drive like shit, helicopters are shit. Gearbox is trash.
                >environment
                They can't even turn on destruction because it's probably not working at all. Oh yea, vehicles have 2 states no progress there either.
                >General feel
                It's a console shooter, only it can't compete with other console shooters cause everything other shooters have this one lacks. No, not having a marker of your position on the map, because they can't code it in, doesn't make it milsim
                >AI
                Doesn't exist
                >Game master
                None really, what you have is a parody, might as well play G-mod
                >Mods
                They had the balls to tell modders "go make mods" for a broken "game" that has no content and won't even work most of the time. They really gambled on morons making game themselves.
                >Roadmap
                Abandoned
                >post release
                They split the game in two (experimental) just to make it seem that they actually are doing something. (You can release updates twice)
                >Updates
                They can't really do shit so they will post shit like "How the music was made", "how the cinematics were made" "Top 5 moronic mods in an empty game" and so on

                And don't fricking tell me this was all a misunderstanding and they didn't know what shit they are selling to get 30 bucks before they go bust.
                Company that made the ultimate milsim released shit that can't compete with freeware like OHDS. It's an insult to the community and milsim gamers.

                yes please,
                from what i know the only big change for arma 4 is it is rumored to not have a campaign or any story missions planned

                bi seems quite disapointed by the fact that the majority of players have not played the arma 3 campaign (this is contrary to the previous arma games)
                only 25% of players have played at least one scenario
                only 24% of players completed the bootcamp tutorial campaign
                only 10% of players completed the first act of the main campaign
                only 4.3% completed the second act
                only 3.5% completed the third act
                only 2.4% completed the co-op campaign
                the other campaign completion rates are 1.6%, 1.6%, 1.5%, 1.4%, 0.5%

                also interestingly only 24% of players have played on tanoa at least once or even opened it in the editor

                arma 3 sold 10.5 million units so 1% still means 105,000 players

                Because they are greedy israelites and jeets that dit it to themselves.
                >Why would nobody play on tanoa? What would be the reason? Why is it a wasted effort?
                BECAUSE THERE IS 0 REASON TO BUY EXPANSIONS. 0 REASON YOU WILL NEVER PLAY IT
                Let me explain. I bought Contact DLC. Can you guess how many times I played on Livonia map (which is great, love it) in the multiplayer?
                0 fricking times. Nobody plays on it. Same with Tanoa and the rest.
                KOTH, and that other one are the biggest game modes, then we have zeus.
                SaMatra will not host games on Tanoa or Livonia cause nobody would play on them. That other big game mode I forgot is also privately hosted so same thing.
                Zeus, well nobody will play it there either as when you ask "Do you lads want to play on Tanoa" most of the players will say they don't have it. Pointless to ask about Livonia.

                What BI did, they released DLCs that are not viable unless you give the maps for free. A player that plays on Tanoa and can't get a faction specific gear/vehicle due to not having paid for DLC is more likely to buy that DLC than a player that has never seen Tanoa, never seen more than 6 players on a tanoa server or someone driving around in Apex specific vehicle.

                They just overplayed their hand. It was calculated but they are bad at math. BI thought that they can dump a broken mess for 30 quid and someone will fix it, just like Arma2/3.
                What they forgot is that Arma/2/3 had a solid base to build upon.
                Honestly, it's as if Epic sold you Unreal for 30 quid and told you that the demo level is the game, the rest you add in yourself

                Reforger is better then you guys give credit. The engine itself is leaps and bounds over A3 and the user interface is far simpler and easier for new players to understand. Lighting, vehicle simulation, environmental detail, cross platform including mods, and even performance blow A3 out of the water. The off hand system is an upgrade over DayZ and simplifes equipment, healing, and utilities. It doesn't have the content but that comes with time. Bohemia is still a relatively small studio and their current pipeline is not fast by any means but they are working. Current experimental branch has an antistasi style coop mission with light story elements as well.

                It runs like shit on a small map with few players on high end rigs. And even if it did manage to run a bit better than Arma3, it's a very very low bar
                >simplifes equipment, healing, and utilities
                Because controllers only have that many buttons
                > It doesn't have the content but that comes with time
                Even 2 quid per hour pajeet java gurus would have done more with that trash in two years than bohemia did. Thus I would put my money on them not outsourcing it, not for quality control, to save money.

                Damn bro did Bohemia crawl up your ass and build a nest? I unfortunately have a job and can't have a full debate and present counter arguments. When was the last time you even played? Half of your "counter points" are simple generalizations not exactly strong evidence.
                Again you are welcome to your opinion but that's all it is and it seems quite outdated at that. I have been enjoying full games of Conflict every night, you are welcome to join and maybe that bitterness can turn into fun.

                Arma 4 doesn't change the way it distributes the CPU load either
                [...]
                The other issue with mods is that the terms for it give Bohemia the rights to the mods to use them as they see fit so modders are making the assets and giving them to Bohemia for free. With the steamworkshop the modders get to keep the rights to their mods to stop rippers.
                [...]
                The campaign is fun when you're an insurgent doing hit and run raids but when it grows in scale and you have to command a lot of ai that aren't very good it stops being fun quickly.
                The Old Man scenario was fun as it was more guerilla hit and run, or hit a position and clear it, set traps for the next wave, ambush them and then when they send a helicopter in the final wave blow that up.

                when I play sp I make all my squadmates invincible. It's hacky but it means you have actual teammates who can support you instead of moronic lemmings you need to babysit constantly so they don't walk into bullets so in general it improves the game a lot. Learn how to use fireteams and it gets a lot more simple to direct the AI around.

                The campaign is important because it contextualizes the vanilla assets. Without that, they might as well not even make a game but just an engine that the others can use to make their own shit. The Chinese are comic book villains in Arma3 and thats a good thing, it makes the conflict actually mean something beyond red team fights blue team.

              Do you really want me to take my time and effort and write down a list in a thread that will 404 before anyone gets to reply?

              The game is a lot better now, servers are stable, the new lighting engine is incredible, things like distant shadows and dense foliage change makes it a lot more tactical than most games, you can easily hide in bushes and observe the enemy, you can crawl around using micro terrain.

              What does a Reforger match usually look like? How many players, are servers active, what's the goal? Is it full of hardcore milsim morons?

              Conflict is kind like a really big and long Battlefield match, you fight all over the map capturing objectives, you can either get in big fights with lots of shooting or you can sneak around and back cap and ambush unsuspecting players.

                Conflict also has a full logistics system and radio network. It's like the best parts of wasteland but with more depth and complexity. Too bad the official servers are locked at 32 players. Modded servers are up to 128 but you lose AI and world spawns for vehicles to achieve stability, and even then it can shit the bed. I think Everon would be just about perfect at 64 with full AI if they can achieve that count and remain stable. Exp is up to 48 but I'm not sure that server ever hit capacity.

    I miss greatly the old days of running arma units and being able to create scenarios around literally any modern conflict imaginable at the drop of the hat for a group of peeps to enjoy.

    You just watched black hawk down for the fifth time? say nothing, by the time everyone has finished gearwhoring, I'll have a workable scenario for you to fast-rope into and will tailor on the fly to keep you excited.

    I miss seeing the reviews from dudes saying 'I got this game recently and didn't know the first thing about it, but these nice guys in this unit taught me a bunch of stuff and now I'm part of a great community'

    Sadly I'll likely never be as terminally online again and I couldn't stomach the tard-wrangling.

        its pretty simple. i played way more when i was like 14 or 15 and back then i had a garbage pc that would take like 30 mins to load up. so i just never closed it lol.
        making scenarios and playing with zues is fun and time consuming. if you really enjoy /k/ shit you can easily burn an entire day making your own invasion scenario with two random factions you made with their own loadout.
        this game is OLD. if i had a group of irls who played this i could've easily sunk another 1 or 2k hours into it.

        Here's my perspective on it, as someone who lives here.

        Some cops are on the take, sure, but most are putting up a fight and trying to do the right thing. Mostly cops have died in ambushes and surprise attacks. In direct contact most narcos are nig tier even with their hardware. Gone are the days of ex-military special forces joining the cartels in droves. It's mostly just moronic pseudo-tough guys now

        When it comes to the Army and Marines, narcos don't stand a chance. And they know this so they rarely even try shit.

        When shit occasionally hits the fan the narcos usually get their shit pushed in.
        The problem is that there's stupid amounts of money to be made and the country is poor as shit.
        So they never run out of people or funds to pay off cops and politicians.

          Reforger experimental branch has a version of combat ops that really tickles my pickle in that regard. CO-OPS arland has you working as this weird, pre-invasion nato team to get intel and leave, basic and not fun after the third run. The NEW combat ops on everon has you playing as FIA fighters, going around the island fighting here and there, no arsenal so you have to scavenge what you find off dead soviets or what you get in the pre marked hideouts, which I think generate different gear everytime. You can lose hideouts to soviets finding them and taking them out, other FIA teams might do stuff which you can take part in within the world like coming across an FIA attack on a soviet convoy or finding the aftermath of one. They also mark things on the map they've done, like dead APC's with gear or soldiers they've left behind they can't carry all the shit from. It also pairs REALLY well with the new AI, being a guerrilla fighter. One mission I had was to destroy a fuel truck inside a compound that was pretty well guarded. My plan was to just take it out with an RPG from range. Only problem was, it was inside a hanger in the compound, which meant getting inside. New AI takes cover good now and actually lays down suppressive fire where you last shot from or where they last saw you, then after that they go in and search that location for a bit. I sat on a hill and took out two guys before running back into the woods and waiting for them to follow. Shot them again from the top of the hill, more from the base came into the woods to assist the guys there and I came over the hill into my car, got in and drove around them down the hill and into the compound. 4 guys were left so I mop'd em up, took an RPG off one and blew up the truck and ran hell. It's not Antistasi depth, but it's what I actually wanted out of Antistasi. No menu rape, no meta farming gear, none of that. Just missions to do and dynamic events to work around in a guerrilla conflict. It's good fun.

      The weapons look interesting but the biggest thing there are the water and fire dynamics, be interesting to see how they do those and then if they can be incorporated into multiplayer unless they're scripted to be static and no fun.

              Its nothing like Ukraine either, short of having a coast to its southeast to an inland sea. Geographically its somewhere in the realm of Kazakhstan, and it has the Takistan in between it and Europe. The landscape is similar to Georgia, much hillier than Ukraine and similar orthodox architecture, and they all speak Czech. Its also worth noting the Ossetia invasion happened when the game was being developed. Its not going to fit any one country, but its clears where their inspiration lies.

Lot of people have no clue about this even though Jeremy Clarkson and James May visited the lines in a Grand Tour special that released back in 2019 (S3 Ep11). I'd wager Georgia was actually part of the testing stage for the very special military operation in Ukraine.

                Russia expected to do to Ukraine what it did to Georgia, the two countries and wars have a lot of parallels
                >Pro-Russian government falls in 2003 from popular uprisings against corruption, electoral fraud, economic mismanagement
                >Back Russian separatists for years with peacekeepers, arms, money, political pressure on Georgia
                >Georgia fails to collapse or let the regions leave
                >Russia blows up a gas pipeline
                >Georgia still doesn't submit
                >Russia invades by sea, land and air
                >Georgia nearly collapses, loses the war in 16 days and is forced to have recognise the new states
                Almost exactly the same as Ukraine but, Ukraine had a more prepared army, is bigger, better equipped than the Georgian Army and the Russian Army wasn't equipped or prepared for the war at the start expecting it to be three days and not planning longer than that.

      Yeah this absolutely should be in the base game. On the face of it, its kinda small. WS was small on release too, but it later got its weapons roster doubled so i would have thought they would make something with no new map a little meatier on other content. 4 new guns, a bolt action, a russian meme rifle, a desert eagle and a glock? The 4 guns arma needed the least IMO. The chopper is cool, as is the truck (dodge ram?), but they're not cool enough to carry a DLC on their own. Another thing is the AAF has way too much shit for who theyre supposed to be. The Irish and New zealand armies are both bigger than the AAF, yet they both operate a handful of choppers, no gunships, no strike aircraft and no tracked armor, just wheeled LAV variants. And yet some broke pariah state is apparently able to field Leopard 2s, tankettes, several different IFVs, Grippens and now apparently an ersatz gunship. Where was all that during the battle of Kavala? I get they have to keep factions balanced for KotH, but the AAF is a shitty little military junta like Fiji and that should be reflected in their equipment.

      it's a 10 year old game. 20 years ago you bought a box in a store and took it home and never expected any new content afterwards, except maybe an addon in form of another box that you buy at a store and take home. and that's it, that's the game. if you got everything from it that there was, you went and bought a new game.

      how much innovation and new content do you expect from a game that you paid money for once

        They have always said that Reforger is a testbed for Enfusion and Arma 4. They added everything from the roadmap and now just do the minor support.

        They say they worked on arma but give no details as to what they did as part of that.
        Losing that many people to both those games will have had an affect as it doesn't seem Bohemia has replaced them with as capable people, so it'll be another 10 years of Arma 3.

          Reforger development is slow AF, and lacks content. But I don't think you have much to worry about. It already plays better then A3.
          DayZ is kicking up development again and they reported more resources and devs joining their team as well as some "big plans". Lots of speculation obviously.
          Some think that DayZ will be moving up to reforgers engine to create an easier shared pipeline. Some think it's a bit smaller scale and more to do with a new map or seasons. Either way BI tends to embrace the slow and steady development approach and it's paid off for both previous Arma games and especially DayZ which I believe has still made them the most cash while the player count continues to top itself each year.

    i've been craving large scale arma but units i have been in are dying or are <20 at peak
    most fun in arma is having a company level mission with 1st person and supporting elements.
    A WW2 finnish-soviet in this scale is fun af due to lack of radios / communication and a less lethal battlefield
    hopefully arma4 happens within the next decade and servers can handle more than 100 players before melting and breaking

      If you want PVP, start with a vanilla conflict server to learn how it works, then try the modded servers, Conflict Vietnam is a lot of fun, it gets intense at times.

    • 2 months ago

      BI has been putting up some small tutorial vids that help. The main tutorial in game is also decent. Conflict is a sort of open world pvpve where the goal is to take control of 5 military bases and then run a timer down. You get there by building up smaller bases and connecting them by radio network. You can play Arland to get a smaller scale higher combat feel to the mode, but Everon is where the fun is. Conflict has a lot of information on the map that can be overwhelming.
      I recommend just keeping it simple and figuring out your gear first. Reforger uses an evolution of the "hands system" in DayZ. But instead of being stuck holding a single item you continue to hold your rifle in your off hand which allows you to quickly heal, use gear, throw a grenade and then get back to shooting without using menus. You can even heal or use your binocs while in a car. It's not perfect, you can get stuck between states, buts it's the most intuitive system they have come up with yet.
      Make sure to learn the medical system and the uncon state. As well as your coms as you get a full physical radio and direct coms. Lastly be kind to your Xbox bros. They will often have little idea what they are doing nor can they aim, but often times will listen or try to help if you ask nicely. Some of them are pretty good at the game too, even if they can't click a head if their life depended on it.

      SOG Prairie Fire is the best one.
      Spearhead 1944 is decent.
      Western Sahara doesn't have much content but for its low price, it's okay.
      CSLA is shit, they literally copied models from Arma 2, which you can get for free with mods.
      Global Mobilization is worth it if you like the era.
      In any case, wait for sale.

        You can play all of them at the same time, same as mods, so you could have a squad of VC reinforced by halo elites be ambushed by a GWOT-era marine squad, before a QRF of ww2 wehrmact soldiers get inserted by 40k valkyrie

        Only one I would recommend without reservations is Prairie Fire, Global mobilization if you are interested in that setting and Western Sahara as high quality for its price content addon for the 2035 setting if you are interested in that.

        https://i.imgur.com/LsmdwdU.jpg

        Western Sahara is only really worth it for its content, I haven't played Reaction Forces yet but it may actually be good
        CSLA is garbage copy paste and Global Mobilization is decent, but the campaign is pretty buggy.

        thanks, i was interested in western sahara, the others are a bit too large file size wise
