Yes, I will murder you in your sleep should you even dare to think about commiting such a heinous crime.

Oh, go one then.

Go one? I can only assume that this is some secret desire of yours, an end to which I will not endeavor

Oh, go on then.

2 Arma sessions in one week that abbreviate to "TT"? Mayhem!

Well, I thought that went OK. We just need to build up a few missions we know we like. If anyone can remember any good oldies we have or stuff from armaholic for low playercounts (preferably with revive) I'm all ears. Would kinda like to do a run through of skirmish devils next week, unless everybody really hates it for some reason.

If you want to use threads either here or in the Mission Development section (http://www.ferstaberinde.com/folk/forum/viewforum.php?f=13) of the FA forums to coordinate some mission making, I know that I sure could use more practice in the art, and I'm certain there are other dudes who'd love to help make some content for ya!

I have put an updated version of research and development up (the randomness works now). If you want revive adding or any of mine altering let me know.

Here is my AAR:

Things exploded and there was a part where I was a guy in the dark with NVGs and then I blew up a helicopter! BUt then a person with a flashlight shot me. WHO SHOT ME? I FORGOT. I WASN'T TAKING IT SERIOUSLY.

Also 0/10 singalongs. FAIL. (Oh, wait. Someone got a 'happy birthday', right? I think so. So, 1/10 for singalongs?)

Thursdays, bah! The one day of the week I've got stuff scheduled in the evenings. (although not this month, I just didn't hear about it yesterday)

To the pits of hell with all of you!

My AAR:

I shot many men... not as many as the others, but still quite a few.

I didn't blow up a helicopter :o(

That was me, Jim. It wasn't my actual birthday, I just noticed the mission date was my birthday and this led to song.

Oh we had accidental happy birthdays. WELL ACCIDENTAL HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KEV.

Long time ago I had a bunch of small playercount missions in either playable and buggy, or close to being playable state, namely Spetsnaz Air, Island Thunder and No Suit No Service. I'll make a note of trying to fix them up, so that they might be useful for these sessions.

Karma came back to get us however, as our rescue chopper blinked out of existence just as we were about to board it.

Thanks! If possible, addition of revive would really be appreciated. Not having to worry so much about death really helps keep the atmosphere light.

So I recorded the whole of today's TT with OBS... and I have ALL the audio... and a black screen.

We will never be able to check the footage to see if it was REALLY a Sam that made Super crash the chopper...

The one time I save the mission, Jim, and the recording screws up! THE ONE TIME

Happy birthday, Kev. Happy birthday. ._.

Also was it you, or was it the tank shooting at you...?

SuperÜ does not simply crash due to lack of skill! (Although more autorotation practice in the Chinook is required!)

Maybe if you'd dropped the GIGANTIC FREAKING TANK UNDER THE CHINOOK FIRST.

Just saying.

The Thursday minisession was great. We haven't had such a shambolic performance in Skirmish Devils since the old days. Somehow, going balls-out and failing comically is proving more fun than a tightly planned and smoothly executed mission

And I hadn't accidentally crashed a helicopter into another helicopter, thus setting half the base on fire, for ages! :D

I set the satchel and clicked touch off bomb as the tank shot it, so I'm not entirely sure BUT IM TAKING CREDIT.

That base bonfire was huuuuuuge, I thought they already nuked us with that SCUD :D

I landed the blackhawk after having the engine shot out so that was pretty cool.

Also did a few precision airstrikes with the A10. Then got sniped the fuck out of an A10. Twice. (once right next to our base while trying to rearm and repair.

Overall lots of fun. I think at one point we had like 5 different people flying around with choppers and planes.

Apparently 1080p is too big for rps forums.

Yeah that's an oldie but goldie bug with a BIS script. Seems to always happen in Skirmish Devils, here's another example (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=13002667) from a long time back. That fire is just one chopper wreck.

Pfft, that's nothing. You should have seen it once fire had really caught hold...

In other news: Thanks to everyone who showed up, I hope I wasn't too annoying of a host. As always I'm open to mission suggestions for next week, anything goes but revive would be preferred, especially for longer missions. Any other feedback is of course equally highly valued.

Do we have JTD fire and smoke integrated somewhere?
(That usually causes fires that big).

Some people last week were apparently unsure if there would be a session because I didn't post here so I am posting here to say that there will indeed be a session tomorrow. As for what we'll be playing... We'll figure it out as we go along.

Hope you guys enjoyed the session, and apologies if I was a bit ratty at times. I was working on about 1 day's worth of sleep over about 3 days.

Next Thursday I would love to run a VTS mission where I mock up a mission half an hour before the session. Then to have you guys play through it with me as the game master throwing curve balls your way and "directing" any "story" elements.

Is this something you guys will enjoy and fancy doing on a Thursday session?
