I got a alpha lite key from a guy on 4chan
I like it, the graphics are much improved as are the animations, radio talk and the inventory
However, Im finding it very very hard! It seems its the friendly AI who are killnig everyone, I cant hit anything! Even when fully zoomed in the enemys are TINY! If I try get closer then I just get mowed down from a guy with an AR 300 meters away! :laugh:
I need a scope or something, also I hate how the recoil doesnt return to centre, so if you fire 1 shot, you are left aiming like 20 feet above thier heads. It makes auto fire totally pointless, its hard to hit someone with a single shot never mind a full clip

Well it is supposed to be a mil sim - So you do actually have to manage recoil and spread, this is not meant to be an FPS-replacement for Battlefield or Call Of Duty. Cover is essential, learning the new stance system is essential for cover and thus survival. Never leave yourself exposed, the AI will punish you harshly.
There's very little bulletdrop right now, you have to be at extreme ranges before having to compensate noticeably. Going fully automatic is only something you should do in CQB, where you still have to fire in bursts not to loose control of your weapon, and even in CQB going semi-automatic is still very much viable.

Yeah I guess i play a lot of FPs' like COD so maybe im comparing it too much to that.
Im pretty sure the aim returned to centre in arma 2 though, Ive played quite a few hours of that and didnt find hitting people quite so hard as I am now. It just seems like the characters are very small but it may just be the mission i played. (Ive only played the first one - infantry showcase)
I just kept wishing i had a scoped weapon lol

I really need to get my SLI setup going. Oh how I hate being poor.
The new fog looks good, and it will drive the visual goodness up another notch even when I thought it couldn't get any better.

Just heard, and tested, that opting in for the Dev Branch results in an "upgrade" to Beta, adding loads of new vehicles, weapons and a new army.
