Combat Photography Thread rules
as of October 18th, 2008
Slow internet connections be gone!
[§1] Maximum allowed filesize for hotlinked images: 250 KB. Please refrain from posting images larger than that. Repeat offenders will be punished with a post restriction of at least 24 hours.
[§2] List your addons indifferent they're unreleased or for personal use only, it doesn't matter. This is to avoid unnecessary interruptive discussions about which addons are used in your screenshots. Repeat offenders will be punished with a post restriction of at least 12 hours.
[§3]All other rules of our forums remain valid in this thread.
How to post pictures in this thread?
Upload your picture on internet, there are several free hosting image service websites where you can do that such as http://imageshack.us/.
Once your screenshot is uploaded, you will just have to create a new answer to the forum's thread by clicking on "Add reply".
Paste the link of your screenshot in your forum's post. If your screenshot is less than 250 KB, you can put it directly as a picture and not as just a link in your forum's post.
The SOTW Competition :
Every now and then (whenever the site staff gets over their lazyness ) we will decide what "motto" the next SOTW should be and the CP photographers (you) will have one week to post their submission in this thread. One picture that has to be related to the motto will then be chosen as SOTW Always remember to keep the image under 250KB (or use thumbnails), no split images and list your addons (if no addons where used simply add "no addons used").
As some of you have already used the FDF and CSLA stuff to create your outstanding shots, we've decided to give a new motto to the thread: FDF/CSLA Mod Combat Photography!
Show us your skills!
In order to inform other possible contributors of the competition we would like you to add the following sentence to your submission.
Not my pictures but good place to get it started

addons used : Armed Assault !
Haha, Armed Assault isn't an addon
Was it photoshopped or did that blur effect come with the game? There was an effect like that in OFP:Elite too. It looks really good...
depth of field? what is it a screenshot feature or somthing you can do in the game?
ahh yes, now i understand, very usedul for screenshots them!
That T-72 is nice, can't wait to blow something to pieces with that 12.7mm MG.
i really like the blood texures used
http://armed-assault.net/screenshots/armedassaultfr-pictures-3_1_1575.jpg for example
addons used : Armed Assault
I like this pic
Unfortunatley, havent heard any more from that Ian guy on the BIS forums... He needs to take more screens! Lucky guy him, getting the title of "first arma user screenshot poster"
yes, using that nice harrier with a friend with laser site in CTI is going to be mighty fun.
Yea looks very very nice them pic's
I thought there was an Arty video posted recently with a "broken binos anim" ?
Ah, Fair enough. Im sure the CoC Arty system will be converted if it is not already in.
Some pics from the Biki:
(Not my pics, linked right off the Biki)
there old pics, theres no mg on the t-72
Good work, I didn't pick that up. Perhaps it is a different type of T72?
Those look Brilliant , Hopefully they wont leave the rest of us hanging without Armed assault for too long. I suppose the MG on top of the T72 works aswell?
mother f'er....the combat photography threads are my job :-p after all i was the one who made the OFP one, and the ArmA one on the ArmA section, but it was supposed to be here......ah well. lol i suppose this will do
LooseKannon, please don't post pictures of the pre-test version of Armed Assault. Only from Released Game.
Just one more thing, if you want to discuss ArmA please use the Discussion thread. Should be like 1 picture and 50 replies to it. We better wait for the ArmA release here in Germany, after that you'll be bombed with pictures from me
I really look forward to that
Just few more from under the table
Very nice screenshots, Ian. Really can't wait to try it out!
Those ingame blur effects really work well
Damn, thats awesome o_O
Can anyone, please, take a screenshot of a destroyed vehicle? I've already seen the Black Hawk (is it a static object, by the way?) but I'm interrested to see more.
Good lord! Those are bloody awesome! I will restrain from posting in here now without pics
Depth of field...
My god Ian, they look superb! Can we also have some pics of the Commander's MG on tanks in use?? It's in no videos, and I'm really interested to see how well it works! Cheers!
Oh yeah! it would be great!
BTW, all those pics are simply awesome! :unsure:
man, i want this game. now. immediately
Holy shit, nice pics. Is that some sort of SF unit in the first pic with the MP5?
are those two of the civilian models in the car or Contracters of some kind?
Seriously awesome pics! That lightning looks really really nice. I agree with ray. I NEED this game now... Damn publishers
wow nice Mp5 jackals will own it though
Thats awesome! Trow them on the mainpage now!
MP5SD5 all the way. How did you caught that lightning?
Nice pictures, Str. Best so far.
In OFP if you want to get lightning what I would always do is set weather to the worst conditions and then prievew and see where lightning would come, then I would preview again and that lightning would appear in the same place (If I remember rightly) So it might be the same thing hes done in Armed assault.
wow lightning!!!! great pictures!
Awsome pictures, Str. Too bad it's gonna be a while until I receive my own ArmA copy...
that's really sexy. but Q1 2007
I need the Demo! Where is the Demo! Weren't we promised a demo!
Gameplay shots from one of campaign missions.
AWESOME!! Omg, I need it now.. Very very very nice Str
@ Q1 2007
Btw, do you get the crackles of electricity under those pylons?
Damn, really nice pics. Fortunately I just have to wait 16 further days. It's hard anyway.
Stryker looks nice :O
I envy you just a litle bit right now lol. cute pictures you have there. Could you put us all out of our missery and post a shot of a tank with its mg in use please lol i feel like im making a request at a porn site.
O rly? ^^ Do you actually see it fire? If so, link!
Im going to post what i posted this afternoon on the BI forums:
I dont have a link so i suggest you google the file, its called
Its 510880kb (almost 500mb) big and you can see the gunner messing around at +-27 minutes in the video
EDIT: Keep in mind that it is a BETA video, and the people who recorded it are horrible, HORRIBLE players -.-'
Cheers! I'll start downloading now at my luffley download speed of 10kbs! Cya in a few
EDIT: Screw it atm
Not the right place to discuss videos. Better stay ontopic and keep posting pictures.
Scary but funny, and original But there is nothing better then eastereggs!
I found another easter egg on one civilian t-shirt, but no pics now - wait for ArmA
Ty, I couldn't stand any longer. Just 14 days left (me as SE pre-orderer).
Nice one Str, I don't know if this is understandable in Czech, but it's pretty ridiculous in my language. Hungarians should understand it too.
Spanish/ Portuguese/ some other country with similar "el" usage? :huh:
Pivo means beer in Czech or something, right?
bär, please do not quote pictures, remove the [img][/img] tag when doing so, even if it is "just" a thumbnail. Thank you.
Note: These pictures aren't by me, just wanted to share them here.
Topic pinned now.
This is Especas from DRS.
Those units rock! I want them so bad.
Six new official screenshots on the Armed Assault website!

very nice but nothing we havnt seen tbh
Awesome pics, but like Trev said, we've seen it all now!
Damn 505! Why the hell are they releasing it so late here..
Might not be know, but still impressive if you ask me. All screenshots are welcome
Bah, I think i'll pay germany a visit. I really dont feel like waiting till 2007. I want this game, now!
Because we always get things a few months after everywhere else?
505 are probably too busy wondering what we want in the special edition pack. would rather sacrifice that and get the game sooner.
wow that triple monitor photo looks awesome *jaw drops*
from mr burns on BI forums
That Harrier one is freaking awesome... And look at the smoke on the rocket! Looks like real smoke now!!
Hi guys, do you happen to know when Armed Assault is going to be released in Holland?? Plz respond, I`m deperate, I really want to know when I can buy this game!!!!!!!!!!!
Comes out with the Morphicon release (Germany) - 30/11/06 IIRC
Bol.de lads, €36,98 euro.
€8 euro shipping costs though. Should still be somewhat cheaper than Amazon.de.
Note: Bol.de is German.
Hope to get my copy soon after 30.11. (Holland).
Wrong thread to discuss the release date. Please stay ontopic, this is the Photography thread. If you want to discuss ArmA in general use the other pinned topic in this section. Thank you.
Ok thank u very much de Rat, but it really sucks that we have to wait so long. I wanna play!!! I allmost dream about Armed Assault!! A NEW ERA IS COMING
operation flashpoint NOW ARMED ASSAULT IS THE BOMB!!!!!!! Bohemia is tha best
My last post wasn't a joke either you should ignore it. This is not the General discussion thread.
Ok, srry. I just wanted to thank the guy who helped me, it wont happen again!
baywatch , except with no girls in ArmA, Gaywatch?
The lighting of the last picture is just incredible. Looks like reality...
I noticed that the BMP does look very real, however the ground and scenery in that specific picture doesnt quite look as good.
Talk about building destruction!
I've noticed that there aren't any reflections on water either Anyone know why?
Ive never seen a reflection in the sea (expect the shine of the sun/moon, and that is reflecting in ArmA), and it would cost way too much performance.
Maybe, DXDLL could help us
But I would have thought they would include it as an option, rather than us having to have the mod. And lets face it, it would be better if they made it (dxdll's reflections were buggy sometimes)
Then at least we would have the option to turn it off
Lots of new Piccys on the BI Forums
Oh yeah, got a better system, so it will hopefully look even better for me
I hope my new system will be ready till the 30th. Otherwise I have to try to get it running at :
1,7ghz Geforce 4 Ti 4600 and 512 Ram
Edit: Some pics seem to be down
Corazol at night
Corazol in the daylight
Incredible. That viewdistance is just beautiful!
that night shot almots looks like when you look at the ground in a real plane! going to be so cool using town lights to navigate in choppers at night!
for a while I thought you were in an airplane Str!!!!!!
I probably will not see these pictures anymore, cause (as KH said) I'm too jelous!!!!!!!!!!
Ive got an order in, so lets see, 10 days + 2 weeks max delivery time to Australia.....sweet as, and as for the pics, cmon, cheer up, share with the cuzzies bro...

They look so nice! Pity lots are missing... But eh, that's what the modders are for eh?
The South Sahrani units look really nice, It's wierd how they get desert camo vehicles, yet the Americans and NS vehicles are woodland/ gree or whatever it is :S
Da rat, if you ever payed any attention to the story then you would have known that south sarahni is mostly desert, and the north has grass, hills etc, that explains the camo
The US came there just to train the SA's, so their camo didnt really matter
Oh right, kinda forgot that they didn't expect to do any fighting
im in love with those land rovers and i've started making plans to make a technical from one of the pick ups
great pics str, i also love the stryker inclusion
Are you sure those aren't blurred? I know about the DoF, but look at the grass in front of the trees - blurry, then look at it when it's in front of the gun + soldier - not blurry... Something's afoot! (unless that's meant to happen )
Not that I really care anyway, beautiful pics Str
i think its the Depth of field.
Ive nto played the game, so im speaking from assumption, but i think its like the feature on OFP where you right click and it zooms, i believe he is holding down the right mouse button, and it is focussing on the group of soldiers ahead of him.
Could be wrong, what do you think?
After seeing the every unit pictures I must say I look forward to trying out those Royal Sahraini Guards
Great pics Str!
Some good looking units there. Im loving the yellow civie ural. Its good to see we final get to play with some good arty units. I cant wait to call them into action under CoC scripting.
Few things lacking i noticed. No women at all, anywhere, and we dont get any beefy nade launchers. Over to u community
wish this was my picture but sadly its not....
You could be forgiven for thinking that this was a pic off of ofp1. Its a testiment to the community to have done so much toimprove and 'remake' the ofp game.
I want this GAAAMMEEE
I'm insanely jealous of allof you who have it, OFP is the ONLY game to be continuously installed since I bought it. And all the pics are awsome. Even found it amusing that the new addon is v 0.2 and looks better than all the finished ofp addons, that's advancement for you
The DoF blur effects are awsome :o
http://str.rival.cz/items/arma/arma05_02.jpg > 100kB
hehe that BMP's about to get owned , great pics
Awesome pics Str! On the pic with the tables and chairs, the DoF'd background looks a little... crosshatch'd...? There's something about it... looks great!
Str, could you post the coordinates of the Alcaraz Castle?
Don't know them exactly, but it's north of Bagango.
No photoshop (just added frame), it's how it looked in the game.
It's atomic bomb script by Xenom, little modified for my When The World Ends mission and converted to ArmA.
Thanks for the tip Str. Hope you make a sequel/prequel to the WTWE for ArmA, I already told you how much I liked the original mission over PM.
I made a quick comparison of the two castles.
wow the difference is amazing, so much more detail.
lol took less than 10 days to get a nuke into ArmA, im impresdsed its interesting to see how the cloud changes in this game engine. Still i hope its WIP. Id like to see bigger, taller explosions with more 'umph' to them and EMP.
We just see tactical nukes ingame but what about some ICBM's? Devasting firepower blowing up bigger parts? Should be possible I think, with the new engine!
Yes, all over applied highres textures, just incredible!
A: SRK Marines (unrel.)
Looks like a pilot in MARPAT
Thats awesome Serial Killer
Is it just me? Every time Str posts a picture all I see is
Nice work Srk, you got ArmA or..?
from BI forums
Gosh, somebody PR him or something before half of the forum member kill themselves. With pellet guns!
That's unfair, so unfair... waaaaaaaaaaaants...
Nice pics, anyways.
Man, sweet pics!
Hehe, saw them earlier - Bannanas ftw!

We need more American looking faces for BLUFOR
And less cross-eyed ones
Civilians driving T-72? Nice! Just missing the flowers in barrelends.
I took a screen when playing with the Editor.
"OpFor soldier beats the shit out of an civilian local"

Is that an USMC combat cap the officer (?) is wearing? Looks a tad... "cornered".
OK, what the hell is that 3rd crewman thinking?
Warming up of RACS forces:
(from my new mission)
Saharani soldiers performing YMCA?
Are they actually meant to be a real US Military element or just a semi-fictional one? (BLUFOR = Blue Force?)
My contribution so far.
Nice pics Crankep
I'm in love with those new deaths (legs like the one on the 2nd pic) But uh, in lots of videos, I've seen them just stopping dead while running and playing their death animation like there is none for falling over while running (like there was in ofp)
I checked that out, and sure enough. They stop very quickly and change to the death animation. Doesn't look too bad.. but still.
Well, there are no control commands, tried ingame. Don't think it can. Almost sure it can't.
You're right. Why AV-8 then? A-10 would have been a better decision. It does carry more weapons, more armor and got better ground attack capabilities!
BIS will implement VTOL capabilities in a future patch.
Been messing around with GC ArmA, found some of our old friends.
A: ArmA GC + Elite leftovers in ArmA .pbo files.
New pictures. Pretty if you ask me
Before a mission. Stay safe.
Hovering outside the city.
Sitting outside the chopper.
Damn, nice sunset you got there.
i cant wait to play with the littlebirds, they look awsome
Some random, un-edited pictures...
I didn't know ArmA is sold in Finland...
Nice pics tho. Mmmmm G36... bullets not showing in mag tho?
great pics sk, im so jealous.
Awesome pics man! The bushes and grass etc in the first one look amazing! Can the AI see you through them?
Keep it ontopic.
Beautiful pictures SK.
Closing in on the beach
Thanks, yours ain't bad either.
That explosion picture is incredible! Man first thing we have to do when I get my ArmA: Play together!
Awwwwwww! Still 3 months for me, then I guess... Report how the German version is, might just buy it then, if possible.
the south sahrini troops look really great.
Omg! Beautiful pics SrK!! :wub:
That fire looks awesome...
G36C *bows* i cant wait to get my hands on this
Made a little lighter in photoshop.
Amazing face there! Looks like a face that would come with the game, it's so well done! 5/5
Does the DoF differ depending on what you;re aiming at? Eg: Aiming at face = blurry gun, but aiming at gun = blurry face?
Str, awesome screens, I wish I could make such detailed faces. I made mine a while ago, but doesn't quite look like me since the head shape is so much different than mine.
Few shots by me, few are featuring my face, now it isn't hard to guess which one is it.
its really not too bad, great screens anyway
Man, are you a handsome-son-of-a-gun Great screens
Btw; i would love if someone could point out how to make your own face and how to re-texture the uniforms.
Is the sitting anim and the sniping anim on the ship both totaly static with no movement?
Been messing around with textures. Hoping to port this over to v1.0 version once I have my hands on it.
How to do that Str?
Niiice pic bung!
@KH: Fps while taking that pic?
Well, that's how the game looks ingame for me. No special photo settings.
homer could we get a screen of the mounted MG in action?
The commander is handling it so yes it can.
Well it's still buggy. You can't have manual fire as commander neither you can switch different shells. In Commandermode only you're able to switch between maingun and coax but no commander-MG there so it's abit annoying.
Which unit is that?
i think hes made his own textures
Yeah, just to try it. First I ever made. Can't for the love of.. find the helmet + gear .paa though. =/
It looks quite cool tbh
Yeah, looking very good
You gonna release, or was it just for personal testing?
Just personal testing really. To try to learn. Never done anything like this before. But if it turns out good enough I might.
ArmA on maximum details
Looks really beautiful...
Qu.3: IntelPentium4 3.2Ghz, 1024DDR Ram, Geforce 7300
is that being flown by a north sahrani pilot?
it would appear he has hijacked it (mercenaries POD moment)
looks fecking amazing though
Beautiful pic, Ergalla . Can't wait to shoot pics myself... oh well, 62 days to go (unless 505 release has Starforce (highly unlikely) or the option to download the whole thing becomes available soon ).
Either BLUFOR pilot or NS soldier (unlikely). Actually looks like MARPAT to me...?
Made them myself (Had to list addon, forgot on the previous).
very nice, like the matt grey helmit.
Bit strange looking in that type of countryside.
Very good man. You gotta release them now!
Btw, what tut did you use (if any)
Yeah they look strange in the countryside, just wanted to see how they looked and made tehm assault a target. Decided to take some pictures. I'll put them into a more urban enviroment tomorrow maybe.
Tutorials, none. I just had to search around a bit to see where everything should be put and what to convert to etc.
Oh and the matt helmet, yeah I decided that having a bright green (compared to the rest of the uniform would make you stand out (even more. ) so I made into a matt grey.
Oh and thanks.
Hi, i loved opflashpoint, but im loving the look of armed assualt, any news on a US publisher yet? If not i guess i can download a UK english version.
The screenshots are fantastic, i may have to retire BF2 for a while after this comes out. One question is on my mind, the reload animation, does the soldier now actually take the mag out of the gun and replace it or is it just stroking the mag like OFP?
Random Pic of Urban condition.
Thanks guys, the pilot in the Harrier is one of the US troups, no pilot of the SLA was able to steal one up to now
Another random picture of Urban Conditions
FlashmanUK: Nah it sort of the same. And no bolt action neither.
Nice Pics all
Sorry Deadeye, your 0.9kb over
Beautiful pics all. That Blackhawk gets even lovelier each time I see it
Some random ones again...
Very nice pictures!
some really nice screens coming out now! :-
Damn, that first pic is awesome, Biggles. But they aren't yours, are they?
no, sorry should have said. there aimpoints, just thought they were really nice.
Hey all im alive again
Bought the german download version, getting a new pc next month so only crappy graphics for now but
I thought I'd share my first AA kill with you
I almost cried when I first loaded the game up, I love it
(P4 3.0ghz HT, 1024mb DDR2 533mhz, ATI X300 SE 128mb, Win XP SP2) framerate of about 25 with 100+ troops, but the vechile LODS dont like my GFX much, slows it down..ah well new pc soon.
is the artillary movable in anyway or is it completly fixed? anyway your second pic is stunning! be really cool to bombard that little town below.
But it can't be towed on a vehicle or anything?
Great pics all
@STR a Flying jeep, shame there was no one in it though,
Is that martial arts thing some kind of easter egg or what?
Nice, great for making CP pics.
Awesome pics SrK+ All!
Great Pics Serial Killer
SFF Recce Element v.02
Awesome pics, Eisen. But are these edited?
I have added only the frame.
Look at the blurred background
For those who missed this one in http://forum.armedassault.info/index.php?showtopic=139&st=40 topic
Sgt. Eisen, you should take some pictures with the Javlin launcher!
After beeing hit, a SLA Soldiers drops to the ground
Camel taking off from the dust airfield
Hmmm.. i'm in love with these South Sahrani troops
Toyota? What Toyota is that?
They're Coyotas, no Toyotas
Ah thought you had an addon or something like that.
Awesome pic man! Best I've seen so far What did you do to it in photoshop? Just brightness+contrast / anything at all?
