    Today is a bacon day.  I have Flash Gordon theme stuck in my head and last night I dreamt I was trying to land a tornado with the wings stuck in the fully swept back position.  I managed it with a little help from my dad though, so we had a bottle of champagne to celebrate.


    What dreams have you delightful people experienced recently?


    I worry me sometimes.

  3. Campaigns

    2017 was a successful year with many great campaigns, culminating in a joint op with Task Force Goons and an extended WW2 campaign during the run up to Christmas.  We will kick off 2018 with the usual platoon refresher training to get us back into the swing of contemporary ops before deploying on the next phase of Op Stranglethorn.


    Maybe this year we'll see Warriors...

  4. Discord

    We're making a couple of changes to the communications tools we use.  Firstly, we're switching to Discord and closing the Slack account.  In many ways Discord is very similar but there are some key features that are oriented towards gaming and community management.  It is also the ArmA3 chat app of choice and will help bring us closer to the community, something that is increasingly important if we are to maintain a healthy membership as the game gets older.


    There are two key difference you'll note when joining Discord. Firstly, there are voice channels that can be used for idle natter or playing other games.  Both VCB Private and Public Teamspeak are still available and TS remains the primary voice app for VCB ops.


    Secondly, there is a VCB Public channel.  This has an open invite that is included in all our marketing material and we actively encourage everyone to engage with non-VCB members here.  This includes former members and any friends you want to play games with.  Feel free to share the link.


    The forum continues to be the location to find important announcements, instructions and information and you should check back regularly.  Discord, like Slack, is just a chat app.


    Joining Discord

    To join VCB Discord simply click the link below.  An NCO will grant you the necessary roles to see the private member only channels.  Discord works in a web browser or you can download a desktop client.  I'll leave Slack running for a few days in case anyone missed the memo.




    Btw, I assumed that the change of keybindings were related to the 64-bit-issue and not the "out of memory"-issue.


    Nope.  CBA key bind callbacks cause out of memory errors on some keyboards that use very long strings for special keys.

  6. A few other people have had similar issues. In their case we narrowed it down to CBA keybinds and some types of keyboard.  Try changing any custom keybinds that use Windows keys (left/right windows or the app key).  Ensure they are removed from Custom Keybinds as well as Add-ons (Oprions-Controls-Configure Add-ons), and set them to something different like ctrl-x or whatever.  Typically this applies to ACE and ALiVE menus and interact keys.


    Also get Win10 and run 64 bit 😀

  7. Let me fucking lay this down for you' date=' if London Bridge Trading Company and Arc'Teryx met late one night and decided to go on a HALO drop together but fucked mid freefall causing one to become pregnant, spent the next 18 months (9 months isn't long enough to gestate this beast) shooting up with bull semen and fucking bear testosterone every day and eating nothing but 7.62 link and gave birth to a Child that was born cutting its own cord with a SOG Seal Pup and throat punching the Obstetrics team. That child then went on to sleep at night having GPMG SF PAMs read to it, it's first mathematical equation would be an Map Predicted Fire plan and a time on task for a Guns Platoon, it's first love would be the cold hard embrace the acceptance of inevitable violent death that comes with it's chosen craft, it's first pair of shoes a pair of Soloman Quests, it's first vest a Crye Percision Cage Plate Carrier with plates fitted, it still wouldn't be as ally or as gear pesty as me[/quote']


    I have no clue what the fuck half this shit is

  8. Can't see link at work, but the recent tech news that interested me more as that the net speed of the latest solid state memory tech (SSD) is approaching that of volatile RAM.  If that's true, then it opens the door to a complete architecture change that'd removed all sorts of bottlenecks, dispensing with separate memory media and buses shuttling data between them.  Obviously it's fearsomely complex and would require new software across the board so wouldn't happen in Bill Gate's lifetime but it's an interesting conceptual vision.
