Re:

Fortnite did not stem from Arma, it was the result of an internal competition at Epic Games. You probably mean Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG for short. That one was an Arma mod (as was DayZ). You're correct, but after PUBG Fortnite appeared and become the dominant Battle Royale game, so it...

Re:

I have tried over a half-a-dozen times to take advantage of Osprey's generous offer only to be completely shut down for a variety of different reasons every time. That kind of thing really does leave a bad taste in your mouth.

I've been removing the games that have released, which includes releasing into Early Access - either it's 'out' in a form you can buy. But it occurs to me I should re...
