    You can sometimes doubletap numpad - to get a much more wide fov.
    Yeah but as soon as you look trough your sights or try to zoom in it cancels itself and you have to do it again, I'd much rather have third person, it's way better for times when you're moving.

    You mean the FOV? Really? I've asked a shitload of times and searched for ways to do so plenty of times, and all I've found is people saying it can't be done.

    \Documents\ArmA 2\simkas.ArmA2OAProfile

    Then find those these lines:
    fovTop=0.75;
    fovLeft=1.3333334;


    I am not quite sure how they work, but just toy around with them and find out. I guess the fovTop=0.75 is equal to 75 degrees FOV. But as said, just try.

    Edited:

    "Since Arma is Czech its inherently wrong. FOVtop is the vertical Field of View and FOV Left is the Horizontal both in Radians and NOT Degrees."

    As third person would be disabled any time we go back to PVP missions, isn't it better to just get used to first person?

    Also double tapping - fov dont cancels as soon as you go to ironsights, never did for me. Guns with scopes only dont allow the double tap - but as soon as you switch to a gun that allows it it works again.

    Sometimes it is.
    I found a humvee with an M240 on the top, and I also found a russian weapons cache. Then I sold it after running over somebody by accident and left.

    Just got my mods updated and I'm going to start playing with you guys again. It feels like it's been such a long time. Once I get used to all the new mods that are in play I'll be sure to deliver an amazing mission, 2nd47-style (that's the best style, fyi).

    If I have pretty much all the mods you guys use do I have to do the whole Six Updater thing? I have ACE and all of the other parts of it, ACRE, JSRS and the SThud. And if you guys are using Emita again I have that too.

    Edited:

    Oh shit you guys use the beta I have no idea how to use that.

    What's "Wasteland"? If it's something that can be compared to DayZ but can be hosted locally, I want to try it.

    Edited:

    I've been playing ARMA 2 for several years now and I only just found out that you can bring up the mini-map but pressing RCtrl + M.

    Remove all the .rsync folders inside the addon folders then convert them to "six updater" addons in the updater menu, should work.

    It's because armarize uses a different system for syncing.

    There is going to be so many Battle LA, Skyline, Independence Day, War of the Worlds, X Files and Falling Skies(DayZ with Aliens) based missions, it's going to be funny.

    Wonder if ShackTactical will do a mission with the Addon if it releases since they sometimes do missions with Zombies. Neverless I am excited for this, it's about time we get a good Sci-Fi mod outside of Mechs and I missed messing around with the UFO and Alien mod in ARMA I.

    Will need to sit in with somebody to explain the full setup of ACRE to make sure it's working - initialises, but would prefer to know it's working before a game.

    Panthera is 50 % extremely steep hills, but it could be fun I suppose, I'll consider it but my first choice would still be getting lingor or celle2 back.

    I seriously want to finish profans mission with the UN Base, for me it's incredible fun! Especially when playing with itsjustguy as leader. Sadly the mission got aborted yesterday twice after alpha squad got wiped :( hoping to play it soon again with you guys.

    Also my first time on the FP server where I got the JSRS on, incredible. Firefights sound so intense.

    I spent all evening yesterday, playing around with built-in mission templates, and it's lots of fun for someone who doesn't know ARMA scripting.

    I wonder why no one makes more templates. ARMA has a great system for mission templates and I've checked, it is possible to make more, but I never ever seen anyone make those.

    Icebreaker is making another map known as Balkania or something like that that is supposed to be based off the Balkans. So I guess waiting for that if you want a "Balkan Warzone simulator". Plus if you want the Balkans, here is a mod for you: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id...ghlight=BALKAN But I should warn you that the mod is still relatively in a early state so not everything is ironed out yet and name of the factions and their units is a bit strange and may take a bit to get used to.

    I download a lot of mods so I'm constantly almost up to date with the activities the ARMA Modding Community.
