Hey all. I just wanted to take a second to introduce myself.

My name is Mike, I'm a Lieutenant at Fort Lewis with 3rd Stryker Brigade (1/14CAV). I just got home in September from a little over 5 months in the sandbox where I got started with my scout platoon leader time. Well, I'm back home now and fortunate enough to still have retained my scout platoon (some of the guys I deployed with have lost their platoons to XO slots or staff jobs) which is nice for me.

I am a hardcore gamer. My wife constantly makes fun of me for using a headset with propper radio procedures, but thats what keeps me going. I'm coming from a game called World War Two Online. A good Massive Multiplayer, but has lost my interest for lack of an armored cav sim.

I'm also an avid sound engineer. I've done sounds for a few games (World War Two Online (CRS), Operation Barbarossa (CDV), Operation Kursk (CDV), helped with sounds for Combat Mission: Shock Force (Battlefront) and such mods as Forgotten Hope 2 (BF2), and Project Reality (BF2). I love playing games that sound the part. Being an armored officer, I know how things are suppose to sound. Expect a sound mod from me in the near future.

I've already found the IP for teamspeak, so as long as my game gets here anytime soon I should be jumping in with you guys for some MP.

Last question - I saw LAV's, but where are the STRYKERS at???? :biggrin:

Yeah thats the stuff right there.

The thing about reporting procedures in the Armed Forces is that they're easy and to the point. Nobody wants to hear a person blab on about a vehicle thats about to kill their entire platoon. The platoon wants to be IN action before that report is even done.

Also, nobody likes to be distracted from what they're doing in game, especially in a game where hearing is a form of contact that may save your life.

Another question...

Which patch should I install up to? 328 w/ hotfix ? Or should I go ahead and install the beta patch?

Which maps should I download for MP games?

The beta can be installed concurrently with 328.

You shouldn't need to download any maps for most MP games. The terrain map files are embedded in the scenario files which automatically download when you join an MP session. The only issue you may run into is if you join a scenario made on a custom height map that you don't have. You can avoid this by going to the download section of this site and downloading the available custom height maps

Boy have you come to the right place. Pretty much every Saturday 1st VUSCav gets together, and when we practice do at least a passable job of doing proper comms.

Once you get your CD and get squared and flush, hop into an MP session. Don't worry about how good you are. Most of us are pretty accepting of new folks, and the skills come pretty fast in any event.

Welcome Apocalypse... always nice to a new face around here :)

You should introduce yourself to Volcano. It appears that you have some things in common with him (sound guy in the Army who drives around in a big metal box...)
