  1. I'm a bit late, but outstanding work Wombat! those mulitcam skins are some of the best skins i've seen yet. i remember a few years ago you were working on various explosion and smoke effects. would you ever consider throwing those into this add on mod?
  2. here is a cool article reviewing Ghost Recon and Heroes Unleashed b9. it's always great to hear that GR is still being discussed and Apex's work is being appreciated. http://gamingpastime.com/ghost-recon-pc-review/
  3. I'm glad there are some COH fans here! i've been getting my butt kicked lately by the AI!
  4. I still argue that The Ghosts would be fielding Multicam for the first time ever. Multicam was being tested in 2008 and I think its safe to say a super elite (fictional) unit has the liberty to use a camo pattern that was in existence during the events covered. Though nothing beats the nostalgia for BDUs and PAGST gear. And thanks for the quicksave fix wombat! I usually play through missions without saving but it's still nice to have just in case!
  5. i think there is a solution in the XTRAS folder of heroes unleashed
  6. Checking in, i've spent quite a bit of time on b9 lately and have yet to encounter any bugs or glitches.(save for the few issues mentioned earlier) also if i get bored enough, i may make an add on mod that brings back the skill points.
  7. Thanks for the well thought out opinions everyone. I managed to snag ARMA 3 on a steam sale so i'll be sure to check it out.
  8. Couldn't agree more. It upsets me that people won't even try this game simply because its a Ubisoft title. IMO they knocked it out of the park on this one. Just like the original, wildlands takes the easy to learn hard to master approach and excludes any on rails elements. All while being set in a fantastic open world environment. This IMO is the sequel GR finally deserved. And trying to remain on topic here, did anyone else think that mission where you had to bust the ex unidad guy out of prison just screamed M11 Dream Knife?
  9. I'm obviously a diehard GR fan by being here. I'm not bored of GR or looking to move on, I'm looking to expand my horizons and ARMA is a staple of the "tactical" game community. I've played R6, RO/RS, BiA, FSW, BF, MOW, CoH, and none of these games gave me a lasting impression. However the original OFP did leave an impression on me, and that impression was OFP is hot garbage. I tried OFP on consoles and promptly sold them. Now I've played about 30 mins of ARMA 2 between 5 different sessions. The abysmal voice acting and god awful clunky mechanics make it a chore to endure. Some animations seem like they are from the DOOM2 beta and I assume once I solve the mathematical equation known as the controls I might have a little more fun. The problem is I can't escape ARMA. Its everywhere in internet military culture. And in concept it doesn't seem like a bad game. The modding community is gigantic and explores almost every military conflict. Please convince me to try it. ARMA2 or ARMA 3? ARMA3 seems more active but ARMA2 seems to have way more mods. How is SP? I dont have time for MP and I'm not into these "tactical" clans who play every game like its a real war zone that they've never been in. Are mods really that complicated to install? the mod structure of ARMA intimidates me. Anything else I should know?
  10. As noted in this thread: The PS2 version of GR contained music during missions which IMO tremendously boosted tension and atmosphere. I know HU aims to reduce every hint possible and giving the player complete control for the sake of immersion. But I think the music added in at least optionally would be a nice addition. what does everyone think?
  11. copy and paste IT AND DS from your GOLD installation to your GOG installation and bam youre all set
  12. this. or the gog version is a steam DRM alternative
  13. tactical realism

    this. what even is tactical realism gaming? it seems nowadays any game with bullet drop, realistic weapons and military lingo is considered a "tactical" game. I remember making fun of Modern Warfare 2 for fitting the word "tactical" in almost every place possible. and don't get me started on people who boast about playing a "tactical" game like Arma but play as if it were a Counter Strike match.
  14. I totally disagree with you. Yeah sure electronic copies are more convenient and can possibly take up less space (if youre organized how much space can a CD take up?) But what about game preservation? What happens when all these game hosting services die? What will happen to all those games you spent money on? I still have PS1 games on disc and almost 20 years later I can still play them how I please. I don't rely on some service to stream me the game. And does anyone actually read the Steam User Agreement? Does it not bother anyone that they are giving money to a corporation in exchange for the rights to play a game. You don't own the game, you just pay Steam to let you play it and they have the power to decide whether to keep the game hosted. You the consumer has no power. Also lets not forget about the meme being spread around that if and when Steam gets shut down, Steam DRM will be removed from all users games. Only problem is Steam has never given an official detailed plan in the event their servers go down permanently. And Steam offline is a joke. Gamers love to complain how juggernaut companies ruin the industry but fail to grasp that their own retarded consumer choices enable said companies to pull shady tricks.
  15. I've got to say that I've really come around to Wildlands. At first I was skeptical just by nature of it being yet another game sporting the GR name and the fact that I really am not a fan of Ubisoft. After letting go of some unfair expectations I really saw the game for what it was and it's an enjoyable game. I'm obviously a huge fan of GR and the GTA series is a close second favorite for me. I've always wanted an open world military game but most games before Wildlands fell short. I'm a huge fan of the original Mercenaries (basically a military GTA) but it really lacked the tactical gun play that I enjoyed from GR. The came MSGV which has probably the best gameplay mechanics of any game I've played. However I don't enjoy the wacky alternate reality part of the MSG series and MSGV was truthfully an unfinished repetitive game.While I wish Wildlands had some of the indepth stealth features MSG had, the destructible environments found in Mercenaries, and the lifelike world of the GTA series; Wildlands to me is that perfect combo of open world freedom and tactical military shooter. Plus I liked having the drug cartel as an enemy. My advice to any old time GR fans is to let go of any criticisms of GR series and try Wildlands with an open mind. It's not GR but it's still a great tactical military game. I thank Ubisoft for taking the GR series in a new direction and I hope they can continue to bridge the gap between old GR players and newer GR installments.
