      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

  1. I didn't know that, never studied history! Thanks though!
  2. So it's been a while since I've been playing in the VG server, and there's this one guy, WCCBadploy. He's on the forums and I'm not too active so I don't know if he ever writes anything, but he's the best Squad Leader I have ever encountered. We're talking realistic levels of strictness combined with compliments and encouragements at the right time, never letting anyone minge around, being very supportive and wanting to progress better than other Squads. It's hard to explain if you haven't played with him, but if you have you perfectly get it. He's incredibly talented and if he's fine with it, I think he should be in VG. I don't know how anything works and if only VG members' feedback counts, but I'd seriously check him out, you'll be suprised! EDIT: I checked and he is quite active. He even replied to my infamous post about how I was an idiotic useless c*nt ("Kicked for being CO") giving me some tips.
  3. Well I tried it, I tried clicking some buttons, I crashed. I tried spawning at the Ramp, couldn't close the canopy, became deaf, looked for a tutorial, tried doing what it did, nothing happened, uninstalled. I'm more a Google Earth simulator guy.
  4. Hi, sorry for breaking the conversation, but I've been looking for a flight sim for a while and all I could find was DCS World, which seems to crash whenever it feels like it wants to. What is Falcon BMS and how can I download it? I've seen some footage and it looks cool.
  5. So ever since I started playing here, I've been asked various times if I had a mic, and had to explain the same thing every time: I do, but it sounds like I'm Megatron. I'd like to fix this but I can't see to find a way. I'm using the standard microphone in my Lenovo laptop and it works well with Teamspeak, but whenever I play anything it sounds horrible. First it sounded really low, so I turned it up and now it's better, but the weird voice problem remains. I badly need help, I can't play like this!
  6. I slept everything away, and I'd like to apologize. I was too pumped and I thought I was the smartest guy ever without even thinking about anything. I have already been SL and I had received some positive comments, so I think I can handle that thanks everyone for your tips and I'll make sure that stupid shi* never happens again.
  7. What negative comments and what negative attitude? Saying "Don't give up" to a squad that's attacking? Spamming squads? What does that even mean? And how was I bringing up very negative attitude? You're the one who threatened to perma ban me for saying this exact thing: "Waiting for Logi to spawn is so exciting, you never know when it's gonna happen" and you said "If you don't stop you're getting perm banned". I don't understand where you're getting all this fuzz, you could just talk to me nicely like Semler did (thanks for the tips, will try following them), but you decide to treat me like an idiot. You could just tell me "Please stop acting this way" or "Stop saying that thing" but instead you warned me once without explaining much and then kicked me. To answer Semler, I probably was a bit over the ranks because I never did it before, and nobody really tried to tell me anything. I only received positive feedback like people asking for help or reporting something. EDIT: I'm going to sleep. I'll see what you've left tomorrow.
  8. So I was playing today and I accidentally clicked "Apply for Commander" I told people to vote No but apparently they voted Yes instead. I thought about it for a sec and then said "Ah whatever let's try.". It wasn't going too bad and I was able to communicate with Squads and to give orders fine. Near the end of the match I decide to move in with the others and see a tank camping behind sandbags: after a couple or requests, I get angry and tell him to "fu**ing move" and after that, got a warning from Double_13 saying "Stop saying that". I asked why, since we were all adults and he said that it was "getting annoying" so I got angry and said instead "Move your gentle back" to mock the fact that apparently swearing is a no-no. Then, I got resigned from Commander with no warnings. At that point I was furious and started talking to him, to which he replied with another warning telling me to shut up and play. Then instead of continuing I gave up and re-applied for Commander, being accepted again. And then, I was kicked. I was kicked for being accepted as Commander. Apparently he received "complaints about my behaviour" although for the whole time as CO I only received messages about situations and requests for crates. It looked like people didn't hate me and even though I wasn't that good of a Commander they didn't say a word when I gave them instructions or cheered them up, told them not to give up an objective and gave them tips. And yes, I sweared a bit, I'll admit it, but again I didn't see anyone telling me that maybe I should have stopped. I'm just really frustrated because I didn't even get to finish the game. Sorry for annoying you. ADDED: I was kicked again, I guess for Reserved Slots even though there are 0 Reserved Slots? Thing is, I got kicked. Not one of the useless idiots who was sitting at base checking his Instagram or the guy in the tank shooting at the air. If you have something against me tell me mate.
