I might add that I don't care too much for the first person view while running in ARMA 2. I only use first person for flying. You can fully adjust the run bob down to nothing, but I still prefer the third person over the shoulder view in this game.
OA has three speeds, slow walk while aiming, run, and sprint. When I enter a city, I'll hit my "toggle run and walk" button twice. (I programmed my left shift for this) This makes the "w" now walk while aiming
instead of jog
, then ill hold my right mouse down which will zoom in. Now I'm ready for someone to pop around the corner and POW I'll knock'em down quick. If I want to move rapidly while in the walk mode, I'll hit the "w' twice for a quick sprint, then let go and press again to return to a aiming walk zoomed in. It's bad ass.
I'll have to re-install fraps and make a "how to move in OA" video. I think you'd enjoy it.
This video even though it's of the first ARMA 2 shows a little of what I mean. Watch for the third person over the shoulder zoom.
