  1. Friday

    Evening youses, Been a while guys! I ARMA 3'd with Doug, Dave, and Gunny last week. Well, I downloaded it and listened to them talk about snakes and rocks on Teamspeak. All's well, still married, still living in GA, rusty at games now though! Good to see so many familiar names around! Missed you guys
  2. It's 11:56 PM EST, 2-10-12 and I see you on the board. Don't be such a stranger around here. :)

  3. Doug has amazing sim game skills. But he also has a great wit and a bit of the showman about him. When he called me smart, I felt like a fraud. Now this Doug guy is smart.

  4. Test... test... is this internet still on?

    Arma 2? V1.09? I just ran it, and am patching right now. I am busy this weekend but maybe next Friday? I don't think my old password gets me into the squad forums any more. Could you PM me the new one?

    Yea it has been a year or so I think! Good to see you are all still kicking. I wanted to say hello because I had a voice over IP web meeting at work yesterday and it was a comms nightmare. People had feedback, open mics, echos... totally reminded me of the good old days where we all set up to play a game. I also have a former Marine A-4 pilot friend I met a few months ago. I told him about VMF-124 and showed him some Youtube stuff of Pacific Fighters. So I was feeling nostalgic and missing you guys. As for playing, I do have an ok game rig, same one from a couple of years ago. A new graphics card and I should be ok. Time is the problem for me. Not going to commit to any gaming yet but, it is not that I don't still want to. What are you guys playing these days?
  6. There are old pilots...

    WOAH... Ok my question is, how did he know he would make it the first time he tried it? How do you work up to that? That flying squirrel suit seems kind of dangerous. Not much more than controlled falling!
  7. Hello guys from an old friend, thought I would stop by and bother you!

    Hey Stans' fillings will make you stupid but not crazy, they are mercury free. I bet Rotatiga has something to add about heavy metals in dental work.

    Sorry, I know your pain too, as many of us do. Dogs are so special to us. Children and best friends in one being.

    Thanks guys!
  11. Windows 7

    I think I may have just caused my problems by patching to 4.09 and then modding. The mod that I applied was meant to go on top of 4.08m and perhaps this was the problem. I did have an unrelated but just as serious issue that was preventing me from editing my config.ini file. This is what homefries is talking about. It just would not allow it. This is when I reduced my UAC level to the minimum and now it acts like XP.
  12. Windows 7

    Hi, I just got IL-2 with mods working on Windows 7 pro, 64bit last night. I installed the "direct to drive" Ubisoft downloaded version of IL-2 1946 into "program files (x86)" while using my account with administrator level access. It actually worked just fine with no compatibility mode stuff. I patched it to 4.09 and it still worked fine I installed some mods. Broke it. I reinstalled it the same as before but this time I turned the security notification settings to do with program access to the minimum. worked fine. This time I did NOT patch it. Default is 4.08m before the patch. Then I installed the mods. This time it works. Windows 7 seems to lock out some ability to user modify the program files directories. BTW (x86) is for the 32 bit programs. I will probably turn the security back up later but try it like this for now. Before doing this I could not edit and save my config.ini file. Now I can. Good luck. Please post back so I can see how you did, maybe I can help some more.
  13. Dragon Rising or ArmA2?

    Hey Stans, if you can play Pacific Fighters with its important keys such as "toggle chocks" that are not even mapped by default you can play ARMA. It is more about tactics and aiming than lots of keys. I think you would like it, there is a good emphasis on shooting well making a difference and body positions and fatigue matter. It's well done.
  14. Dragon Rising or ArmA2?

    I love the stressful situations you get into with ARMA/original OFP. A key element that made OFP great was that while other games were mostly still scripted and linear it had open plan maps that leave you wondering how the heck you are going to get of out of this sort of situation but still feeling like you have options. And you never have to do the same thing twice. So it looks like the chappah hit a tree? Does the AI do that a lot or was it a fluke, it could happen to a human pilot quite easily.

    Hey guys, just stopping by. We finally got a house which has kept me very busy. I'm about ready to show up for a game here and there now! See yall around, hope all is well. ps The Dude, the lack of daylight SUXORs. I see about 2 hours of daylight a day. One in the morning as I go to work, and one on the way home and precious few minutes after I get in. Gaming time of year this is.
