  1. If you're worried about something fishy going on within your browser, i'd HIGHLY recommend installing and using good old free "SpyBot Search and Destroy". It's been around forever and regarded highly as the best thing to use for browser hijackers, etc. here's a download link https://www.safer-networking.org/mirrors26/ Install it, , update it, "immunize", and then scan. This is one of the three pieces of anti virus software ive been recommending to my friends for years. 1: SpyBot Search And Destroy 2: Malwarebytes 3: Hitman Pro Best trifecta protection for "gamers", as all services can be disabled on all software and enabled when needed easily. I use Firefox as my main browser for sure, but Here's the extensions i use for protection (in chrome) and again i feel like this is the most secure way without a proxy to use the web. ( i use tampermonkey to enable/run "reek's anti adblock" script witch counter-disables sites that try to disable my adblocks - so tampermonkey is NOT needed! ) Hope this helps some of you! <3.
  2. So the next DLC is being released on September 12th. Looks like there are a few really cool additions. You can pick it up on steam here - http://store.steampowered.com/app/571710/ I was VERY surprised at the content offered here, i was expecting something completely different to be honest. I really like the ambulance and possibilities for the medics, also some of the new props will be cool. I personally would LOVE if BIS would release Shotguns, MotorCycles, and more Civilian Vehicles, all the way from a beater hippie van to a Lamborghini type sports car, any vehicle additions would be cool imo. Life servers make up 75% of the entire arma player base, you'd think they would cater a bit more to us. =/. Anyways, what do you guys think? - And what in a perfect world should this DLC have in it in your opinion??? Below i posted from steam what is offered in the DLC. Explore a different perspective on the battlefield with the addition of a humanitarian faction, van, drone, mini-campaign, and much more, in the Arma 3 Laws of War DLC. Charity A portion of the proceeds from direct sales of the Arma 3 Laws of War DLC in 2017 will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The total amount raised will be announced on www.bistudio.com in 2018. Key Features International Development & Aid Project (IDAP) - This new faction, IDAP, is a non-governmental organization which is specialized in rapidly responding to humanitarian disasters. The faction is composed of new IDAP-branded clothing and gear, including outfits for specialized roles such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal specialists, as well as many other tools, supplies, and other items. "Remnants of War" Mini-Campaign - Take on the role of IDAP explosive specialist Nathan MacDade, who is tasked with identifying and deactivating mines after the war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis has ended. While you are being interviewed by an investigative journalist, you will uncover what happened in the town of Oreokastro, experiencing the events from the perspective of various sides, in recollections that span multiple periods of time. Van - IDAP makes use of a new van, which comes in multiple variants, with over twenty custom liveries in total. Each variant caters to a specific purpose, such as cargo logistics or the transport of people. There is also an ambulance variant available. Utility & Demining Drone - IDAP has a new drone at its disposal to be able to quickly move cargo or supplies to a specific location. A special variant of the drone is used as part of IDAP's demining operations. APERS Mine Dispenser - The APERS Mine Dispenser is an effective but controversial area denial weapon system. It is typically only used in desperate situations, and can have devastating effects even long after a conflict has ended. Vests, Bags, Headgear & Facewear - Various pieces of new gear are available to help you carry out your duties. This includes safety vests, messenger bags, hard hats and press helmets, ear protectors, safety goggles, and much more. Additional Content - The Laws of War DLC adds a variety of miscellaneous additional content, such as time trial challenges for the new van and drone, a paramedic outfit, and a training mine. Platform Update The Arma 3 Laws of War DLC is supported by a major Arma 3 platform update, featuring new content and feature extensions. The platform update is free for all owners of Arma 3. Supporting Feature Extensions Cluster Strikes & UXO - Refined cluster strikes provide a highly destructive form of warfare, while the newly introduced simulation of Unexploded Ordnance means that some cluster bomblets might not explode upon impact. Mines - Several improvements to the identifying and clearing of mines (and other explosives) make for a more manual process, with a greater emphasis on the Mine Detector tool. Leaflets - You can now drop informational pamphlets from the sky using the new Utility Drone, which can then be picked up and read by people on the ground. You can also apply your own leaflet designs to your own custom scenarios. LOAC - New additions to the Field Manual cover the Laws of Armed Conflict, while small tweaks to the Arma 3 sandbox also improve the in-game representation of LOAC. Supporting Content Showcases IDAP & Laws of War - Two new individual scenarios offer an introduction to the DLC's new faction and topic. In Showcase IDAP, you visit one of the organization's open days on Altis. while in Showcase Laws of War you take part in an IDAP training course. Additional IDAP Content - In support of their operations, IDAP has access to emergency and medical supplies, such as cardboard boxes, food sacks, water bottle packages, blankets, stretchers, IV bags, body bags, and more. Cluster Bombs - Deploy three new faction-specific cluster munitions from aircraft, but also deal with unexploded ordnance that may be left behind afterwards. Decorative Objects - On top of IDAP-specific props, several new decorative objects are available, including shelter tents, separate floor canvases, new furniture, an air-conditioning unit, and plastic net fences. Official Soundtrack - Listen to new music tracks composed specifically for this DLC. Steam Achievements - Unlock a set of extra Steam Achievements related to the new content.
  3. Great post caesar! Lately i've contemplated making it so taxi/press cannot wield a gun at all while "on duty", it would simply drop the weapon, because of witnessing some of the same things as you. To be fair, i've also seen some great rp from press and taxis over the last few months from all types of people, so props to those of you out there having fun with it making others laugh!!!
  4. It depends what your budget is and what type of monitor you're going to be rendering your games on(what resolution/refresh rate). A safe bet is a gtx 1070. Many friends have gtx 1060's and get fine results. I just recently purchased the 8GB version of the gtx 1080 (they make a much more expensive 11gb version) gtx 1060 - comes in 3gb and 6bg versions - would highly recommend the 6gb version as 3gb just isn't enough for modern gaming - stay away from 1050's and 3gb 1060's. gtx 1070 - solid all around - make sure you get a good brand - and stay away from "founders edition" cards gtx 1080 - comes in 8gb and 11gb and ti versions - obviously this is the best route to take and costs a small fortune. Only graphics card companies that i can really stand behind are EVGA and ASUS - i personally wouldn't buy a card from another company unless the deal was amazing, Hope this helps bud.
  5. Hi there, hope everyone had a good holiday week usa and canada alike, i've got a few questions So i just purchased a GTX 1080 and am looking into getting a new monitor, specifically @ 144hz. I'm really having trouble deciding what to get... If anyone has any input or experience with any of the mentioned products i'd love to hear your thoughts! I'm upgrading from a gtx 970ssc and 2 very cheap 21" asus monitors. So on my epic 144hz monitor hunt im down to these 3 options - 2x 24" BenQ Zowie (dark correction, blur protection, best backlights) - 1x 27" BenQ Zowie (dark correction, blur protection, best backlights) - 1x Acer Predator 27-inch - with G-SYNC ( syncs w/ nvdia cards no tears in between 30-144 fps - g-sync is supposedly EPIC! ) *for the single monitor purchases i would get a second identical one in 2-3 months when i could theoretically afford to. I've always wanted a BenQ - they have the black correction which makes dark areas in games brighter, and they're widely known to have the best motion blur reduction, back light strobing, and the lowest overall latency recorded @ 10ms (not the 1ms response time). Widely used in e-Sports - this seems like a solid future proof buy. On the other hand we have the trendy Acer Predator @ 27 inches w/ G-Sync. This monitor is way more than i'd ever like to pay for one tbh, but the g-sync tech really does appeal to me as i play alot of games on high settings and would benefit from the anti tearing and anti blur between 30-144fps. The reviews are all great. g-sync is so good because v-sync adds latency to process where as g-sync does not and is made specifically to work with nvidia cards. ATI actually offers a free alternative called "Freesync" but nvidia doesn't support this and probably never will for obvious monetary reasons. I've read reviews where people say if you put a g-sync monitor side by side against a non g-sync monitor you can only notice a minimal difference in tearing - so does a minimal difference warrant the extra cost?, or is the difference huge like some have suggested online? - Do any of you use a 144hz monitor? Or one of the ones i'm thinking of buying? - If so, did you notice a huge difference? - Does anyone use g-sync (or even freesync i guess) and notice a huge difference? Would love to hear any recommendations or others experiences on this same journey!
  6. Tanoa will be viable when its "FREE" - (even then it will be "stained") - i feel like, how dare bis charge for apex and lock out everyone who cant afford it. I was all for making tanoa life (even bought domains) till i saw no one would be able to play on it unless they had PAYED for apex... They went against their own business model they so valiantly stand behind. (annnnndddd... " *failed*, while making millions", im sure) Now they announced they are going to make the apex content free to play with i heard? - *golf clap* - bout time bohemia - smh lol, nice to see them come around to a sensible position - finally. Malden looks like a refreshing version of Altis - im VERY interested.
  7. Sounds to me like a browser hijacker, could be a weird virus i guess too... There are 3-5 programs i'd recommend to anyone who has a computer... Malwarebytes - https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/thankyou/ SpyBot Search and Destroy - https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot2-own-mirror-1/ Hitman Pro https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/hmp.aspx ADW Cleaner - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ Malwarebytes Anti Exploit - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-exploit/ And if you're ever really screwed with a virus (and not on windows 10) combo fix is a CHAMPION https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/ I would run hitman pro and spybot for sure, anti exploit will prevent/catch whats happening probably and adw cleaner would hopefully remove it altogether. CREATE A RESTORE POINT IN WINDOWS ALWAYS BEFORE REMOVING VIRUSES OR DOING ANY FILE SYSTEM DELETIONS/CORRECTIONS! Creating a restore point - http://bfy.tw/C5i0 No harm in installing these, running them to clean stuff up and removing them thereafter (for malwarebytes and spybot, the others dont install but rather just run) Hopefully this works for you bud! <3. Thanks for playing on the server and being a part of the community!
  8. this should have been addressed in this patch, i forgot to add this to the notes. <3. Ty for the heads up for sure!
  9. The 2 games i play besides Arma are Overwatch and playerUnknown's BattleGrounds - i'd heavily recommend both!
  10. Yes sir, staff tested them all, they all got the green light. Sorry for the locked buildings before, it was indeed my fault.
  11. 5/29/17 - Small Patch - adjusted pricing of fish in preparation for the next patch which includes the new fishing system - Added 12 new shipwreck spawns, some of which may be in more shallow waters. Also increased the good loot(slightly) that drops in them. - adjusted AI some in missions. - adjusted vehicle weights, increased the carry of transport vehicles, and decreased the tempest device as it is pretty overpowered to be able to have as much carry and have it auto gather. - sped up processing a bunch if you have a license. - some other minor bug fixes that were reported by the community Thank you everyone for playing, and a special thanks today to those who serve or have served their respected countries! - have a great memorial day! for those who have requested a zipped mission file to download on a separate connection, here's a link <3 https://www.dropbox.com/s/2w21cz7ujb49nay/s1k_lyfe_v13v.Altis.zip?dl=0
  12. 5/25/17 Patch Notes - You can now spawn on the aircraft carriers - (rebel or smuggler license AND a pilots license) take caution though as they are buggy (hopefully bis fixes), there are spots where you fall through and spawning vehicles on them is iffy as well BUT CAN WORK. if your vehicle explodes when you pull it out , IMMEDIATELY GARAGE IT and you should be fine. I will work on a fix for the buggyness no doubt. - changed the non insurable garage readout price from 999,999,999 to "NOT INSURABLE", believe it or not there were actually people that thought we intended them to pay a billion dollars to insure their car, lol <3. - some small optimizations and other changes - made it so you can go in the fishing shops that were locked (untested) Much more coming soon! Thanks for playing on the server as always!
  13. Yeah, i have to change the spawn system a bit perhaps to allow different types of location parameters, i should have a fix soon, just have to tinker with it.
  14. 5/21/17 Patch - A Few Adjustments - added item icons to vehicle and housing virtual inventory - pretty huge economy overhaul (i pulled this one out of nowhere tbh, lol, but you guys will love it) - where some items like for hunting and fishing would only pay 100-200 per unit they now pay thousands per unit in some cases. Check out the ingame market for updated prices. Drug prices have been raised dramatically along with everything from fruit to mineral mining. Even plutonium and uranium went up a bit <3. ### The Logic ### - lots of new fun toys to play with, certain economical tasks have become stagnant - this should get people out there farming some new things and enjoying the newfound profits at the same time! - added a second "empty" or "fake" shipwreck - reduced the amount of mediocre loot that can spawn in the shipwrecks - increased the amount of good loots that can spawn in the shipwreck. - 3 min cooldown on organ stealing (it should work - untested) - fixed quick service of chopper (untested) - patched the quick gun switch animation glitch people have been shadily doing. - fixed the kajman that still had dagrs (oops! <3) - The new APC's i added now have their turrets removed ### The Logic ### - Now rebels can RP that the vehicle is for protective use and or transport and not get pulled over for the guns on top, cops of course can still request no military vehicles in cities as they always have. - took a quick shot at giving you guys more view distance and some more weather adjustments to remove fog. - patched an exploitation of shipwrecks As always, thank you for playing on the server and being a part of the community, everyone is appreciated equally here! I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend! We should have another good patch in a few days!
