      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 like the idea and I have no issues with it, but I prefer not digging fobs. My mouse finger get's tired. As for the razorwire, AH C'MON! Nothing more funny than building instant razor wire in front of a door, in the basement of Hospital (Fallujah), line up the noob squad, aiming at the door, remove the razor wire and watch 15 bots come pouring out....then hear the reaction of the noob squad as they tear through them - hootin & hollarin! "Teamwork" - DONE! "Fun" ACCOMPLISHED! new PR player - HOOKED! In all seriousness, for experienced players (and enough of them) digging assets is not an issue. It's when you have a combination of casual players, new players, non-english, no mic, not responding, or "I just wanna shoot something" players that it becomes a bit of a pill. Late at night, with all the 1 man squads, there won't be enough players to build a fob and/or defenses. The worst case scenario has been, I'll see 1 person as infantry (I no speaka enlgihs), 5 people in Trans, 6 people in CAS. And everyone in air assets tk'ing over who get's to crash the next chopper/jet. And if we do get a few more infantry people playing, humvee, logi, helo theft as personal transport increases when there are no fobs. So, late night participation may drop for awhile. Let's give it a try though. Hopefully, Monkey see, Monkey do.
  2. Thank you to everyone - for the welcome..... I didn't get to complete my post. A neighbor stopped by....(the guy who got me started in PR). By the time he left, I had a "senior moment" and forgot what I was doing. hmmm I thought I tried to edit my name before I created this 2nd account, but I must have messed it up. And for the curious.... No I'm not fat... far from it. I almost qualify for "Senior communities" at my age I have always been a gamer. My first computer used 5 1/2" floppies and I played 'Murican football with X's and O's. I think I might have been one of the first people to get PR to work in 5760x1080 resolution - back in the day. Give me the alternate HAT kit and a crate....no more armor. 2011 screenshot Anyway, I'll just leave it at Thanks for providing a fun place to play PR. I am Oscar Mike!
  3. Hey everyone, Alot of you know me as "Cushing" on this and Reality Mod forums. In-game, I am FatAlbert. My friend stressed that he would kick my butt if I got banned or didnt follow the rules on any server. So I read the player manual 3 times in preparation to play PR. And I look for the rules of a server wherever I can find them. My first game was Kashan Desert in 2009 (Deployment). I was a total NOOOOOOB! I think it was my first shooter game. I spent 15 minutes walking in the desert with no idea where I was going or what I was supposed to do. The game was so confusing, I think I would have quit PR had some guys from =HOG=, PrWars, and Hardcore clans helped me along. I have played on the =VG= coop server since it started, but took a couple years off from PR. Alot has changed since then. Anyway, just wanted to clarify that I will be using FatAlbert on this forum to avoid any confusion. Cya on the battlefield....:)
  4. I was asked to join Kavelenko's squad. I installed the maps, I can load them in local. When I try to play the map (road to Tampa), I can't spawn anywhere as the insurgent. Afraid that I might not be able to get into the game. What am I doing wrong?
