Couple of days ago me, Worm, Cap, and a Swiss cartographer did a bit of sightseeing, heading up Devil's Castle and the airfield. Good times!
Unfortunately the EU servers have removed third-person, and now I'm unable to play for more than 5 minutes without feeling extremely ill thanks to the shaky cam. Hopefully the devs will put third-person back in or provide an alternative option. If not... well, it's been fun while it lasted.
2: play on the US or NY servers. Ping is not a real problem on them, as ARMA doesn't rely so much on a fast connection. Time overlap is usually quite good unless you want to play at night, US servers are daylight by about 1PM UK time.
3: If you're talking about the shakey-cam you get when injured, I agree that it's rather sickening, but if you're worried about the running cam shake, you can switch it off, or tone it down, in the options menu.

The harder difficulty makes the experience a little more 'hardcore' if you will... you can't peek round obstacles using 3rd person, if you (ever) fly a chopper it'll have to be done from the cockpit. It also eliminates all of the little shortcuts and such. However, it is a server admin choice... so it could be changed. I don't mind it... I prefer playing my ArmA on the harder difficulties.
Here's a breakdown of the difficulty levels and what they do.
ARPS unofficial motto - And then we leave. No heroic stands.
Edit: It works! Now I can physically play, but after 20 mins I just don't want to anymore. Think I'll go try that new multiplayer Mount & Blade.

I was hoping you'd come and find me I've got lost in the north trying to find our campsite.
It is getting boring playing solo though, it's very monotonous treking through the woods trying to avoid bandits and it seems to be getting harder to team up with ok people as everyones so wary, myself included.
Just tried DayZ. That's some tense gaming right there. Awesome stuff.
I will be having more time to play games from this week and I wanna play some more of this mod with RPS people, as alone it gets kind of boring.
Third person has been activated on some servers, and also there are more servers.
Wormball is moving house so unless I can find another RPS member, I'll be playing wood hermit for a few days. Don't want to risk losing my equipment. :/
make sure you guys are getting on mumble, we had an awesome session last night.
Gunfights at the airfield are amazing. Highlights include chucking a frag into the fire station back entrance and having a buddy shoot the enemy as they ran out the other side.
