    The ArmA movie of the year is coming up, and I'm stuck between two versions of the exact same movie I've produced. One features a soundtrack with integrated real-time sound effects, and the other is the video with a seperate soundtrack, and only a soundtrack. All be it a excellent soundtrack.

    You decide, I'll submit... I need this done before I leave for the sandbox.

    ArmA: Effects (Video 1)
    ArmA: Lux Aeterna (Video 2)

    Oh come on ladies and gents! I need real feedback here.

    This could very well be presented in the official expansion.

      They both look good to me. I'm not much of an ad critic and commercials really aren't my medium when I'm deciding what game to buy.

        I easily like the sound track only offering because of the sound track, as you can almost "hear" the sound effects. But I still think sound track only WITH the sound effects would be the ultimate best.

        I liked the one with sound effects included with sound track enough, but the sound track only offering really builds up such a good tempo, and it draws you right in.

        I didn't for a long time either.

          That seems to be concise. If I could only get ahold of the Canadian ArmA mod, Operation North Star, then my video complication would be complete.

          Anyhoo, thanks for the votes. Keep'em coming.

            Prefer Effects, voted A.
            It feels more natural, always belonging: right time, right place.
            Choice of music in B is arbitrarily; sometimes well in place, sometimes way off.

              I spose this one also entered the fray. Considering the s%&t I'm getting for not including it via BIS. I spose you now have one... or three choices.

                Both were professionally done, but I prefered A. The explosions were enough to rattle my desk.

                  I like A the best too .

                    I liked B or ArmA: Lux Aeterna (Video 2) better.

                    The soundtrack w/effects version might have seemed more realistic in the sense that it included all the elements which would depict the scenes as though they were actual events transpiring , although what appeared to be cries of pain at various points seemed a bit peculiar because one never saw the individuals taking these hits - if that's what they were.

                    Still... the second clip seemed more suited to the purpose - if I understand it correctly - since the music added at sense of tension to the thing, and seemed to imply that something momentous was about to occur.

                      The second one (soundtrack) for me. The first one feels "grittier", the second one is more dramatic. I tend to think music does wonders for a scene, so it gets my vote.

                      (Plus, how many times do you need to hear a tank firing, or stuff getting blown up?)

                        Both were cool, but I still can't decide.

                          Like a couple people said, the 1st one (A) had some grunts and shouts of pain that were out of place. It threw off the gritty battle.

                          While the B track was (i've heard that track so many times )
                          but it definitely made the sequence more theatrical and dramatic and in my view, better.
                          Now I have tied the poll...
