Damn, OK, I got it. What happened was in the Controls Menu it was labeled "Optics", and I was looking for something that said "Iron Sights". Thanks a bunch. Also, on another good note, it LOOKS like my internet connection's doing better.

Is this one worth purchasing? I now I had it years ago. I found my copy of resistance from a few years back, but i no longer have the other. Does any one still play it?

Operation Flashpoint is still being played, yeah.
And even if you dont play it online there are THOUSANDS of custom missions available from the 6 years that it has been out now.
It shouldnt be expensive anymore now, so i say go for it :)
The community is still pretty active, even after Armed Assault came out.

I was thinking of getting resistance, but since ArmA 2 is coming out soon I decided against it. There will be plenty of people to play ArmA 2 online with right? Lol I don't wanna get left out

Resistance still is a very good add-on and has a great campaign, i reckon it doesnt cost much these days too. It might give you something to do untill ArmA 2 arrives, and we dont know yet how that game will turn out :)
I'd still recommend getting it.

The voices sound like computer generated lol. the space between the words is funny!

Well there are so many possibilties of sighting things (different types, distances, o'clocks etc) that it's impossible to make a proper sentence for every situation.
So instead they just glue the key-words together, to provide you with required info only. After a while you get used to it hehe. Hell, during firefights i dont even hear what they say cause i'm so focussed on finding the enemy :D

I am actually trying to get my brother to purchase OPF GOTY for me. I had it a long time ago. About a week ago I found my Resistance cd and booklet lol. After that I started to miss it lol. I loved it, it was one of the best i have played, and really havent seen in my opinion to compare to it. Anyways, if I do get it, where would I go to download mods and the sorts for it?

Hey guys!

I was just wondering if anyone could give me any tips on buying OFP Resistance. I have OFP: Cold war crisis and red hammer. Believe it or not I could not find it on e-bay. I did find GOTY OFP on e-bay with all 3 in it, but anyone know ANYWHERE I can find resistance without buying all 3 again? I couldn't believe how hard it was to find. Thanks!

The voice system is actually amazing, it's really well done, and they've made sure the inflection is right for all the possibiities.

There is a better system for doing this now though, I work with a lot of telephone IVR companies who obviously have the same problem, trying to keep things sounding natural, the best way to do it, is basically record the word as it's being spoken within each point at the sentence, so you have the rising, mid and low inflections, but also more importantly the natural pacing of the word at that point in the sentence. If they do this in the next ArmA it'll be practucally indistinguishable from a person just reading the line.
