  1. Time to brag

    Yea, with a ping like that, I wonder if she's some kind of emergent sentient a.i. like Binary or something... Are you, Alaura? Are you a bot? Is this why you asked me all those questions about my personal preferences and asked me to choose an update schedule? (j/k) haha
  2. Project Reality VIP Rescue Event

    Server has been setup for you @=VG= TEDF - GS9 Port 16587 -- didn't copy over the complete VG coop python, just the key parts like death time, etc. You will need to adjust kits and loadouts if needed, these are default COOP settings. If you need me to change these to match COOP, I can, but you'll likely want to edit them for your custom missions so I left them default for now. Let me know. Any issues, contact me. Cheers! *current banlist, admins list, and the Fly South Crash bug fix have been put in place, as well.

    VIP Rescue 23.11.2019 1800 PRT Server PW : XXXXXX (Hostage takers (2) : If you are interested in playing as hostage taker, send me a PM on the VG site.) If anyone is interested in commanding BLUEFOR, then feel free to apply as well. It's been a while, but but it's time for a new round of COOP events. With the 1.6 just around the corner, it's logistically not practical to do any huge events due to the sheer amount of changes the update brings, but we can still do some of the smaller scale ones, so here we go.

    Personally, I prefer https://testmy.net/ because I can set parameters, have a better choice of servers, etc. etc. Also tests Up and Down separately. If you need to troubleshoot your Twitch live stream, you don't use Ookla Speed Test, you use testmy.net

  6. I got a Ban

    You were banned by FastJack for massive teamkilling. I can see why he perceived this as end of round teamkilling, an apology was not apparent, and it was swiftly followed by yet another teamkill.

You have no history of bad behavior on our server that I saw, and if you can follow the rules, and be careful to make sure people know when a mistake has happened (text chat helps), you may be allowed back on the server. Again, we will wait for the recommendation of the banning admin, FastJack.

  8. Campaign Challenge Level

    Yes, it had crashed. Thanks for the report - I've restarted to the last auto-save, it's running now. P.S. I've not had time yet to work on the campaign file yet, but it's on the list and I've got plenty of free time coming up starting as early as this weekend or next week. I expect it to be that way through New Years, so looking forward to get some more regular flights in as well. See you around!

  10. Profile for VoiceAttack by =VG= SemlerPDX Description: These commands use VoiceAttack to translate the in-game on-screen radio menus from AWACS through Tanker into natural and intelligent voice command phrases that will fire keypress macros to help keep hands on the throttle and stick, and maintain immersion. As an additional option, these commands can be locked behind a push-to-talk mode bound to your UHF/VHF transmit buttons in-game, allowing any other VoiceAttack command unrestricted access if needed, while still restricting these BMS radio command macros. Finally, this single advanced control profile is extremely easy to edit or integrate into other profiles. At VETERANS-GAMING, we fly with friends or AI Pilots, or a mix of both on our 24/7 Public Korean Campaign in Falcon BMS. We may go out with an AI wingman only to have a friend take their place mid-flight. For this reason and others, I created this VoiceAttack profile based around restricting when the computer can execute keypress macros that match voice phrases, having to first check if that pilot was set to a human pilot and therefore disregard commands for that pilot. Thanks to user requests during the beta, there is now an optional mode to reverse the Human Pilots system, to assume all pilots are humans unless told otherwise, and also a system to choose a different keyboard layout than QWERTY. I have also added an optional Audio Feedback Mode to play a short radio cue sound when a command is successfully recognized. Included is a single profile that handles every callsign and radio command variation in Falcon BMS, with instructions on how to add any custom callsigns to the single profile. The focus of this profile is only on the in-game Radio Menus, and creating an immersive interaction layer through VoiceAttack that is easy to manage and update, or integrate into other Voice Control systems for Falcon BMS. My goal was an intuitive system, so there is no user manual - only a few infographics and quick reference pic of all the radio commands. I personally keep that final pic on my tablet for reference when flying, to find radio commands I seldom used in the past when they were more difficult to access while busy with HOTAS in the pit. Say goodbye to the keyboard, and enjoy the immersion! Cheers! Features: *Push-To-Talk mode disabled by default. Say, "Turn On Push To Talk Mode" to enable **Follow Instructions inside profile to set Push-To-Talk buttons to match BMS UHF/VHF keys Download: (Click Here) Tips for this profile: *On first import, you should say, "Initialize Profile" - after first time, this is automatic. Any attempt to use commands before this will trigger auto-initialization. If you get errors from my profile, Launch VoiceAttack and open Options (wrench icon in lower right): -Under last tab on top, System/Advance, check box next to "Use Nested Tokens" as in image 1 below -Unless absolutely required, during testing it's recommended to uncheck "Allow command segment info for composite commands" Open the profile - if not already done, group commands by category and consolidate multi-part commands as in image 2 & 3 below Click on the Description tab at the top to help sort commands further (see image 4) Read a semicolon ";" as the word "or" and look at long commands as having many options like saying "2;Two;Too;To;Wingman" (read as "2 -or- Two -or- Too -or- To -or- Wingman") Commands Reference: *Replace the word "Human" with "Computer" when All-Humans Mode is ON Normally, this profile assumes all pilots are Computers, use All-Humans Mode to invert this
  11. v1.1 Patch has been released A bug has been identified and removed. This issue prevented the entire Human Pilots Registry system to function and should have been caught before the final release version. All apologies to everyone who has been trying to use this new voice program. In addition to this, I've decided to not use a wildcard to catch the name of the BMS program to send keypresses to, and have gone for the "Falcon BMS.exe" method. Still, this will not catch every user, and players will need to test to be sure commands go through initially, and refer to VoiceAttack troubleshooting (and those tips we've highlighted already) to get commands to fire in the correct window. I'm happy to help new users, and the community has been helpful as well. Any questions, feel free to ask! Patch Release v1.1 Changelog Nov2019 Fixes/Improvements: -Changed common Send To default from *Falcon BMS* to "Falcon BMS.exe" to avoid conflict with open PDF's, etc. with Falcon BMS in name -Fixed Human/Computer Pilots Registry system - last minute addition of a mode check was to blame, has been removed for now Download: (Click Here)

    I live in a major city and I pay around $90 a month, it was over $100, but I added Cable TV and the price went down... Yep. Down.
  13. Hacks or bug/feature

    I asked, it is a bug. A very rare bug. Seems to be known, asked but did not get recommendation to report it off the bat so like they can't jump at every little thing, just the things that break things, those that come up often, etc. If you can actually reproduce it, like Fastjack said, consistently, it would not be in the very rare category, and attention might be devoted to fixing it, and so reporting it and the method to reproduce would help. But if it's just another one of those things we see a few screenshots of and laugh, and never see again, no problem letting the Dev's relax and/or work on more important things. Thanks for the report, nevertheless!!
  14. Re-introduction (and a call for help, I guess?)

    Hello and welcome (back)!! I'm not sure about the mouse cursor thing.. if one of the guys doesn't post up with a tip or fix, consider posting up on the PR Forums website, the Dev's are helpful and of course, know tons of fixes from issues over the years. Best wishes and see you around!
  15. Rewatched this one for Halloween - funny as hell

  16. Mumble crashed

    Fixed and tested... Sorry about that guys, it had not come back up properly after the scheduled Server Maintenance today. We also spent some time testing it to get it to not do this again, will let you guys know if we have success. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
  17. Assets waste / break server rules

    We feel your pain!!!! Ignore idiots who respond to your warnings with incredulity -- this is not a training server, and even though shit happens, if newcomers are treating the toys carelessly, we trust you to stand up for the server and let them know it won't fly. Try to avoid kicking people unless they really deserve it. It sucks, but shit happens, and new players are gonna be new players. Even trained pilots who are new are still ... new. You all are the regulars, the pros - gotta leave room for the next generation, and teach them what will fly and what will not. Wasting assets will not fly here, people gotta play for the win!! Remind them of that whenever you need to. Just be cool.... Vodka helps.... Y'all are now the old dudes - don't forget when you were the new dudes...

  19. FINAL RELEASE TO v1.0 Please download updated final version! Link below and updated in the main post above! You don't have to remove the old 0.99 beta profile, but it is recommended to not use both at the same time or variables may get messed up. Thanks to everyone for helping to finish up final testing! SitRep: I've finished with all final additions and proposed changes, and all known bugs and issues have been resolved. We've tested quite extensively to try to break things, and it seems fairly stable. The final version can be found in our download section, please rate and comment if you like and share this link if you can (click here). There is now an Audio Feedback Mode that can be turned on or off at any time. It plays a short sound when a command is successfully recognized, to save time and help avoid the frustration of not knowing if we have to repeat a command. I've given the option to have the Audio Feedback sound effect to output through stereo left, right, or center channel(s), and this is set when you turn the mode on. It is a radio cue up type sound, but a bit distinct compared to the ones in BMS to help differentiate feedback. All three sound files are very tiny, and are included in a VoiceAttack Profile Package for easy importing into VA, and will be placed in folder in the VoiceAttack program folder under Sounds automatically when the profile is imported. Finally, there is a single Variable Pause in the KEYPRESS_Variables command that controls the time between a keypress and release for every action in the profile. Default is 50ms, and if a user has any issue with the keypress macros firing buttons too fast for their computer, this number can be increased slightly to slow down the system and fix any issues. Huge thanks to everyone who helped out with comments, feedback, bug reports, and testing - I'm very happy with how well this profile has been developed, and I have a feeling it will be a solid tool for years to come! I'll support any changes for future BMS versions, and will try to respond to any questions about this profile. Here's a copy of the changelog: Final Release v1.0 Changelog Oct2019 New Commands: -Turn On/Off Audio Feedback Mode : Provides sound feedback upon successful recognition of a command (per user request) -Added a non-functional command to help recognize many variations of "Yes" words for the voice confirmations in profile Fixes/Improvements: -New Variable Pause between any keypress/release for adjustment of the time any key is held down, in keypress_variable command. Default is 50ms -New Audio Feedback Mode has custom SFX included, and gives user option of stereo left, right, or center playback for easier distinction -New Speech notification on startup for Audio Feedback Mode (if enabled) -Speech notifications on startup for PTT mode and All-Humans mode (if enabled) have been greatly shortened. -Fixed issues with being able to set Humans in Computer Pilots mode and vice versa Any problems or new bugs, or brilliant ideas, feel free to drop some feedback! Cheers!

  22. Arma 3 Liberation Server crashing

    Oh yea, sorry - we did resolve this one, but this post dropped off the top-10 long before that, and didn't get updated. Cheers goes to Ciro on that one, Zadra, PITN and myself were scratching our head for literally half a year, having tried so many things. Can't remember the exact culprit or culprits, but glad this was a thing of the past.... Have to admit a little flush of anxiety when I saw this familiar issue again on the frontpage, before I noticed the date(s) of the posts. No worries, but gonna lock this thread up. Prefer to watch dates of posts before replying, often the older ones are not worth bringing back from the dead, though I understand the enthusiasm to help here - much appreciated!! Thanks anyway!
  23. Hello. Konichi'wa. Hallo. Hola.

    Hello and welcome! Enjoyed our chats in TS3 and discord - thanks for the intro! See you around!
  24. Application to be =VG=

    We expect people who want to be in VG to behave like people in VG: Be cool, know the rules, have fun but don't be too disruptive in-game, make friends and be friendly, but also be yourself, and be strong and confident as you assist other newer players to fall in line with the COOP rules and spirit here at VG. We're all dumb sometimes, alcohol helps, but don't be a dork, don't annoy people, don't go gung-ho over-the-top RP gamer (we are not a hardcore server!), and don't rock the boat. We deal with issues on a case-by-case basis here, and we try to keep it drama free. Go with the flow, and see where it takes you. Life is a journey, not a destination.
  25. Application to be =VG=

    Thanks for the application! While we do promote from within, organically, it is great to know that you are interested, and that we should be mindful of your honorable intentions. We are very slow to recruit into VG, people begin as regulars on our server, and over time become well known among other players, PR Admins, and =VG= Members. We have a friendly crew, but to ensure we don't take on a large number of members who do not "click" with the other members, we ask that potential VG members attempt to become friends with the people you see around here. We have friends here who have been around for years and years who are valued members yet not =VG= Members, and while I would not say that we are an exclusive group in any way, we are expecting any new members to go down the same organic route that we all did. Play games, make friends, become part of the wallpaper -- at some point, a current member may nominate you for a Lite Administration role in one of our servers you frequent. Later, you may become a full Admin here. Further down the road, a friend and VG member may nominate you for a =VG= Membership Vote, and any "no" vote accompanied by negative feedback will put that vote on hold for several months or more, but between 10-20 positive votes and a person is approved. Just FYI. Basically, hang out and have fun as if the VG tags don't matter, get to know people and get known yourself as a day-to-day regular, and one day, either it will happen or it won't. We are keen to make sure people are a good fit with each other as part of this larger group, and that is why we don't just allow people in willy-nilly and see how it works out. Hope you understand, and are still interested!
