Several of us got together tonight, with Taosenai hosting. We ran some of Tao's freshly-made, yet hugely difficult new missions, plus some missions from the stock game.

Here are some screenshots from our session.

Everybody gets everything they want. I wanted a mission. And for my sins..they gave me one.

Awe-some!! Great shots, really can't wait to play it tomorrow. Love the look of the OPFOR vehicle in pic 8, it must have uber bullet-proof glass in it though as it has a lot in there smile

Just in case you don't see in another I asked in, could you post your settings in game please Saghen? As I set ARMA2 to the same as you have and it made the game look so much better.

Those MRAPs are extremely tough. They are easily as hard to fight as BRDM-2s in ArmA 2 -- AT or nice grenade launcher work required. A far cry from the usual technical vehicle!

Are the controls more traditional fps than ARMA 2? I never could get used to the clunky controls of ARMA. I love the scope of the world, tactics, and realism, but always wish it played more like a hardcore version of Battlefield 3.

I must say I am rather excited about the potential here. The game feels a quantum leap ahead of the old Arma 2 engine.
Just feels more solid. Hard to describe but the old engine always felt a bit experimental - like it was held together with tape.
This feels much more polished and professional.
Hopefully someone releases a "current day" mod soonish.

Last night was a great time, sorry I had to bug out after the first couple of missions.

Anyone going to be on tonight?


P.S. Arma3 rocks and it is closer to the traditional FPS than the previous incarnations.

Some of us played again tonight. I browbeat SectionEight into hosting some community made missions. Here are some screenshots from that. (plus my game settings per Mace's request)

I've downloaded some more missions that we can try. I wasn't sure how well the connection would be, but for the most part it ran pretty well. Had about 8-10 players and did not experience too many hiccups. I just didnt have any missions downloaded. Have most of them now (that were on Armaholic) so I feel confident on hosting more. Let me know if others are out there.

Ohh, and just read on the first mission (SAS infiltration) the user who created it wanted no NVG's to showcase the night lighting. A little too hard IMO.

I'm so glad it isn't as I hate it. Must be because it was in the PMC DLC and was bad in it smile

You know, it's great being a PC gamer, ya know it? lol Those console boys have NO idea what they're missing. I read the recent article about how mobile gaming is taking over somewhat, but as long as we have games like this...THEY DON'T STAND A CHANCE!!! We just need to keep supporting the designers and things will be peachy.

Great shots!!!! I've got some ARMA3 to play, I want to check out Tomb Raider, and Eurotrucks is calling my name. Better get some snacks biggrin
