Arma 3 Weekend - July 2-3

When it works, it works great. But I suspect that it suffers from the same thing that ACRE did. ACRE had a bug innit that massively desynced people for some reason. But usually after a period of time playing. If it is the cause, its seems to be much worse in Arma 3

That does look like a proper improvement.

LOL i remember me going like … “Sargoth you got to see this one” lol

Aw man… No beer for me this afternoon. On the pager… :thumbsdown:

Sorry I missed this morning. Does anybody have screenshots or stories they’d like to share?

So after much investigation, I’m 99% sure what’s happened is my ISP is incompetent. I’m paying for a 13 Mb’s up. I’m currently getting half that. This kills the server bandwidth.

Time Warner is the devil Bobby Boucher. The Google Fiber singularity cannot happen soon enough.

Also It’s entirely unrelated, but watching this makes me feel much better.

No worries.

The server is in ‘creating’ loop at the moment I think, so can’t join.

Well crap. I’m out at the moment barbequing, so that will remain broken for a bit

Plus, pretty sure barbequing is the adjective to be in the act of lining up for Barbies. :dolls:

Is it too late to sign up for a slot for the 3rd? I’ve never done ARMA multiplayer and am not very good at single player, so just give me an unimportant role and point me in the direction of something that needs to be shot…

The bad news is I don’t think we’re doing anything that formal tomorrow.

Good news is the informal stuff is way better for learning.

I missed participating in most of the sessions last weekend due to the holiday and family interference visits :slight_smile:.

I know we had some issues with the event on Saturday but I want to thank @near_blind for putting it together and doing a lot of work behind the scenes … work that may not have been obvious due to the issues. Mission design and balancing is a tough job and it gets more thankless when there are issues with the server and we never get to see that hard work.

My hat is off to him and I hope he is having a great 4th of July weekend!

Last we’ve heard is that he cried himself to sleep ;).

Indeed - I had fun just hanging out and learning some of the basics… Sorry that his server wouldn’t cooperate with the rest of us… :smiley:
