I saw the pink mist in the upper chest/neck area myself.

ARMA3 doesnt interest me.   I am not a big fan of shooters on PC as keyboard and mouse will always destroy a controller in quickness...

Its primarily against AI, COOP that sort of thing. Balz makes it work with a PS4 controller.

I do make it work, but there is quite a bit of faffing around with a third party software to get it to work. Then there is the tuning of the look speed, acceleration , and deadzone. Its not crisp, its lazy. I've been killed a few times because of it.

cant an xbox controller plug and play?  I use an XBONE controller for all other pc games and it works fine.

 

Yes it can, but I think the issue is more the amount of controls needed is somewhat limited by a controller. I think its safe to say I can engage a target, dive to cover and bring up a map to form a plan, mark it while also reporting to situation to the team over the group channel and be moving again much faster and smoother than a controller player, which can be a big factor in some of the situations.

 

Stance adjustment is another big one, its just hard to setup on a controller and its a useful tool controller players might miss out on:

This is just infantry commands:

Does not include all the different binds for diving, fixed wing, rotor, driving and a few others. So it can get crazy to set up. Holding L CTRL acts as a modifier on some items which is not shown, same for R CTRL.  For example, L CTRL + G cycles grenades.  R CTRL + M is GPS.  Or double taps, Double Tap K toggles compass on screen.

So that's how you switch grenades.  I also use LCTRL+W and LCTRL+S to move stance up/down.  I didn't know about Pg.Up and Pg. Down.

 

I should really print off that keymap image.
