  1. Past hour
  2. COOP PvP ?

    Could redo some of the old VIP Kidnapping / Hostage missions where players had to roam through the map to locate and rescue the VIP, played by another human, that is guarded by 1 - 3 "SF" guys (humans) while fighting off the bot army. People seemed to like them back then. Relatively easy to make with some server side modifications.
  3. Today
  4. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    This issue should be gone now. The fix is in place and the server has gone for the last 8 hours or so without a crash. Please actively try to crash the server by flying south of the map border, and report if it actually crashes the server. We think it will not. If the server does crash, please note the time (in ZULU/PRT/GMT) and the map (and if known, the next map that was going to be loading). The crash dump system is still running, so I can cross reference any crashes with dump logs and provide them to Alon if needed. As the issue involves memory allocation, it may be difficult to reproduce even if it is not fixed. But we're assuming it is. Thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding throughout this whole thing!! Cheers!
  5. COOP PvP ?

    If it's not popular and doesn't work out, it may not be a regular event. But we'll give it a try if someone wants to get the map(s) set up for it, etc. And attendance will be mandatory! (just kidding)

  11. COOP PvP ?

    I have played, in the past, other servers that lets you switch sides and play with a bot against human. The best thing about it is that you get to surprise human opponents with flanking/maneuver/ambush. The worst thing about is that you get to experience the same thing from the other side and can die very often. Let's give you an example on a map that everyone loves: Muttrah City: 1) Were you ever frustrated with anti-air asset while you're on TRANS/CAS? Well now we have an anti-air asset that can literally go anywhere in the map and hide in any building they choose. The days of you not needing to worry about getting shot down while hovering over North City is officially over. Sure, you can dodge a heat-seeking missile with a well-placed flare, but do note that countermeasures do not work against bullets (especially heavy calibers like 12.7mm, 14.5mm, and 20mm). 2) If you have gotten killed by a mortar and thought "this is not annoying whatsoever," prepare to be bombarded with HE/Airburst. Were you annoyed by someone popping smoke and you get shot because you couldn't see? Prepare to be shot, in many occasions, in the head by a dumb bot with a pistol across the map. Also, have you ever used mortar and felt it was boring and tedious? Well, now you get to experience what is like to be counter-mortared and lose all of deployables you just built. 3) Riding a Humvee/AMTRAC/LAV-25 and constantly get annoyed because your vehicle gets hit by a LAT kit and disable? Well, you don't need to worry no more because HAT kit makes you die instantly so you don't have to worry about waiting for those dumb logi trucks to bring a repair station to you. By the way, have I mentioned that you can also spawn with a combat-engineer kit and lay anti-tank mines around for easy kills? You better start looking the surface of the road you're about to cross carefully. Unfortunately, enemy bots with LAT kits wouldn't be so kind to wait for you to look them up before they destroy your vehicle. 4) I love the smell of claymores in the morning, especially when they're placed on T-shaped buildings. 5) Snipers....... nuff said. If you played CO-OP events before, you should know that there are few key admins who are on the bot side to make sure the event goes smoothly. They are not allowed to directly involved in combat unless necessary, and even then it could be frustrating at times. Imagine having those players have no rules of engagement whatsoever, and the only limitation they have are their creative imaginations. It only takes one or two with a decent skill/knowledge and access to good equipment to ruin everyone's day. I'm all for playing such events, as COOP is getting bored without a major update, but please understand..... There are reasons why people play CO-OP instead of Deployment. I hope people know what they're getting themselves into before they bring Deployment to CO-OP.

    Got to see them in concert recently too.

  14. COOP PvP ?

    We were talking about this in TS3, this would be cool for events and we're gonna see if we can do this on the weekends, like a regular thing. We have two other servers, and while I'd like to keep offering COOP for those who want to play it on a weekend, we can put a message in game as a MOTD that says an open COOP PvP event is running on the other server as an all day event. We should work out the ways it will work, any necessary rules beyond our standards, and all that stuff. Xenalite said he'd like to shoot for next weekend, but this is pending on having the technical stuff worked out. For Events, we often give a two week notice and spend the time to promote it, and test out the technical stuff. We'll see what we can do moving forward, there would need to be people willing to do a bit of work and have a little knowledge of PR maps and configs, but volunteers are welcome, so long as you're not an asshole (haha!)
  15. COOP PvP ?

    actually I think that's a good idea to try other game variations. but if i'm honest the coop server with bots on both sides annoys me. somehow the game is not really serious anymore. I do not really know why but it seems like training ... so playing against bots I find better than pvp but with bots on both sides I do not like ... but we can try something like that, of course ... I would also find it interesting to play with the highest difficulty level of bots.
  16. COOP PvP ?

    Meh, I mean as a whole even as an American who plays when the server is at a lower number I dont really care for it. I mean if it was done as events every now and then like opfor weekends were I would be cool with it.
  17. COOP PvP ?

    Could we try playing COOP with players + bots on both sides? Some arguments for it: - Easier to seed maps with low pop - you get some bots to help you out. - Get to play Opfor. - Get to play more maps, which are very boring with bots on 1 side: Beirut, Saareemaa, Burning Sands etc - Harder difficulty - you don't know if enemy is a bot or human. - In general an interesting change to break up years of the same pattern. Veteran players know exactly what bots will do. - Other side gets to use area attack / deployables / smoke.
  18. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    WOW. tears of joy. that would greatly enhance the quality of the game and I think our server would be fuller. we lose a lot of players with every crash ...
  19. Radio =VG=

    Had to read the transcript for that one hahah... lets have vote on the long walk [banned] song.... Lyrics Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence One step from lashing out at you You want in, to get under my skin and call yourself a friend I've got more friends like you, what do I do? Is there no standard anymore? What it takes, who I am, where I've been belong You can't be something you're not Be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me A lesson learned in life Known from the dawn of time Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me? Run your mouth when I'm not around, it's easy to achieve You cry to weak friends that sympathize Can you hear the violins playing your song? Those same friends tell me your every word Is there no standard anymore? What it takes, who I am, where I've been belong You can't be something you're not Be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me A lesson learned in life Known from the dawn of time Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talkin' to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me? No way, punk Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talkin' to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me? Walk on home, boy

  21. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    Negativ. its only in our hands i think. I do not think that it really interests someone at deployment (but cant blame anyone for it)... it seems there are not too big problems with the bug, otherwise you would read something in the forum. and JTG has mostly 0-2 players ...nobody cares. we should continue to analyze his behavior and try to find a way to neutralize or move around him. there is different behavour! local crashes a lot less than online. deployment apparently too. maybe we should play a few more rounds bf2 again ... etc. So it can really be that we can never do anything about it, but it can also be that Kavelenko tomorrow by accident finds out that they do not crash if something else cross the border in the south before or whatever... Regarding the first thing you said, while it's true that the focus of PR is Deployment, and it has been expressed that if COOP development was holding that back and no one existed to work on COOP, that the game mode would be dropped - that does NOT mean that the R-Dev's are okay with letting bugs persist, etc. Bugs are reported and eventually fixed all the time for both game modes. This one was unique in that it took a time to even know that it was a real bug, then time and drama happened, and even now I just learned that some miscommunications happened, too. I was under the impression that crash dump reports had been forwarded to the R-Dev's a long time ago. The other evening, I worked with Kavelenko to capture a crash dump report with procdump that was directly related to a Fly South server crash. I forwarded this info to the R-Dev's, and along with the other info in our report, they've identified it and will attempt to work it out before the next major release (don't spread rumors, don't get hopes up, but a fix for this is coming if not in the next update, then soon). TLDNR; This bug has now been officially identified (I asked if I could directly quote the R-Dev from the private forums, will post if able) - and it will be fixed in an upcoming update/patch, hopefully the next one, if not, the one after that.
  22. Guns and Ammo

    I have plenty of guns and ammo to go around, I am seriously lacking in food now. If you bring food, I'll let you in. I'm actually planning to buy a PPK sometime in near future. I had a chance to buy PP, but decided not to. I would love to buy a WW2 PPK with Nazi eagle stamp, but boi they are EXPENSIVE. You've known me for god knows how long, and you JUST realized I'm crazy? Man I'm disappointed in you. It's actually a .22 replica, and the silencer/suppressor is fake. So even if it looks quiet it is still NOT hearing safe.
  23. Last week
  24. Need help making a blueprint prototype

    Nice thing, get 2 and ya got a washing line i'm sure people will buy it. good for keeping food out of reach from ants. hanging lights from, do a USA flag version and your rich : ) hooo and if you can play PR you can play CAD software, u do't get banned on CAD : } If you want some company to make them they will ask for CAD flies even if its a paper cup. I'm a big kick starter fan : ) : ) : ) go get some wing nut $$$$$ and see what you can do. 4 backers $85 pledged see people will buy it nice one : ) : ) This place has 10000s of small business's that will make you a UFO and cheap : ) China number one : ) https://www.alibaba.com/ Hit the government non taxable income ceiling before doing any paper work and tax : ) He who dares wins ............ good luck
  25. Guns and Ammo

    Its a .22 and you can get any suppressor with a $200 federal tax stamp which are easy to get. It's the same tax stamp you would need for an automatic weapon, but this all depends on the state you live in. In Arizona, where I am, I can own pretty much anything from automatics to "destructive devices" and Suppressors, however, California, which is right next door, can't even own 30 round Stanags or an AR15 with a normal pistol grip.... A Soldier got arrested for having a 30 Stanag in his car when he left fort drum in New York, so it can get a bit confusing with gun laws here if you start crossing state lines.
  26. Server issues

    18.20 Zulu we played fallujah std and the server crashed in the middle of the game. no choppers...muttrah inf was the map before.
  27. Noobs in CAS / TRANS

    Some times ya just got to let the metal burn to save the troops, but saying that the sever is not for learning how to fly, 3 strikes and out : ) admin kill command. no permanent ban temp only, we need the body's to fill the sever. Then we can get fussy : ) That's key noob by noob troll by troll. moron by moron...
  28. Guns and Ammo

    Dam right Jarsons range safety protocols are for a reason, i had the same experience in the USA, drinking machinery bad mix : ) But i'm in debt to the molon labe dudes for my freedom.
