Q:Have you been playing the Rising Storm invitational beta? I saw a player with your name in-game and was curious as to if it was you or a wannabe.
I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Q:What do you think of Wargame: Airland Battle and Wargame: European Escalation? They both kind of strike me as what would happen if you took the ARMA series and turned it into an RTS. It's a ton of fun, methinks. If you haven't tried it yet, I'd highly suggest it.
I enjoy them. I’ve been playing a fair amount of ALB lately, though it’s not something I’ve ever really considered making videos of due to the duration of a given match.
Q:Just set aside enough time finally to watch Fire From the Sky! That was by far one of the most beautiful videos I have ever seen, and it has only strengthened my resolve to one day make a go at joining ShackTac. I just wanted to let you know how well you and ST represent the ARMA series at its finest. ARMA is the game I've always wanted to play, I just didn't know it existed until a few years ago when I stumbled across your channel. So thanks!
Thank you. :)
Q:Do you consider yourself a "people person"?
Not particularly, nope.
Q:No new blog for a month, what's happening? D:
Just busy. Busy… busy… busy… busy. If I got paid in proportion to the amount I work on hobbyist stuff, I would be quite wealthy.
I do not. :(
Q:What are the plans for moving ShackTac over to Arma 3? Do you have any ideas as to how or when the shift will happen? Thanks.
Probably close to when the game actually fully releases. Nothing’s in stone yet.
Q:TrackIR 4:PRO or TrackIR 5? Considering a purchase.
TIR5’s just all around better.
Q:Hi, looking to get a screen for a gaming desktop. I play a variety of games and ArmA series are right up there at the top. I see from your specifications you have the Dell U3011 30″ 2560×1600. Do you use this as your gaming main screen and if so, how do you find it for gaming. Most notably I'm considering about lag in the screen that may or may not exist depending on what review you read of the screen. Many thanks.
I use it for gaming, yeah, and I’ve never noticed any such lag.
Q:I live in roughly the same area as you (I think) and I thought for sure I'd seen Eby outside the other day. Turned out to just be a friendly look-alike (all 4 legs intact) but it was rather exciting. For a moment, I thought I had not only stumbled across your awesome cat but perhaps the man that holds it all together himself! Which brings me to my question, have you ever met a fan in real life?
I’ve met various people at trade shows in the past who knew me, yeah. This was before my channel took off, so it was from things like TrackIR, my TTPs, etc, that they recognized me from. It was neat.
Q:Hey Dslyecxi! Is there anyway to access your old videos from the OFP/WGL days? I remember watching and loving these a lot back in the day and I'd love to see some of them again.
Not currently. They’ve been migrated over to my Youtube channel, but I have them all set as unlisted or private. Maybe some day I’ll find a way to present them that doesn’t screw with my current channel timeline etc.
Q:What do you think of the Red Orchestra series?
I think it’s overall a worthwhile series, but there are various aspects of it that keep me from having it as a game I regularly play. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do next. Maybe some day they’ll ditch the freeaim concept? It’d be nice…
Q:What would you say the biggest misconception the internet has about you?
I don’t know, but I bet it’d be pretty entertaining to hear!
Q:If you had something like a million subscribers, would you use your fame to further causes that you see as important, or would you stay the course?
Maybe some day we’ll find out?
I don’t think I’d use that as a platform to soapbox excessively (or rather - outside of what I would already consider doing on my channel at my current subscriber count), but it would be nice to be able to take something niche and show it to such a broad audience.
Q:Are you satisfied with the grenade system they are using with ARMA3? I remember you made a video about what you would like with grenades in ARMA.
It’s better than the prior solution, but it’s still far from perfect.
Q:Have you ever flown a real aircraft before?
Nope. Someday, maybe!
