Just my point of view.
I am not an active OFPEC user, I just use to copy / paste wolfgrugs wonderful scripts or dePBO bardosy's great missions, try to even understand one single line of Mandoble's master scripts...
But I consider myself a very veteran regarding OFP, I played that game since it's release, all the expansions, ArmA, ArmA 2 etc... (And still I aim like shit, the worst player in the planet, probably)
Regarding DR, I completely agree with the guy that said that thinking about "Codemasters are the bad guys" is a bit foolish, BIS and Codemasters are companies with different interests and objectives, and that's all, the only thing that matters is if their interests are the same than yours...
And, letme say something good about DR, and I cannot avoid to compare with ArmA 2:
- Arma 2 first release was completeley full of bugs, and lots of mistakes regarding basic mission editing, I know the 90% of OFPEC agrees with me. It is a bit frustrating being even a novice editor, purchase the game and watch some shitty showstopper in an official mission. DR worked fine since first release (at least on the copy I had)
- Arma 2 needs a poweful machine, DR not (ok, it doesen't need it because is more limited, but In my phylosophy, no game shouldbe done only for 1.0000 € machhines)
- DR AI is MUCH BETTER than Arma2 AI. And that's for me the point. The focus on this Arma or in the future releases shoouldn't be the graphs, sounds, island size, commands and scripting options... it should be the AI!!!! The urban fight is still shit, the indooor is even worse....
Yes, I know the AI limitations in DR, the distance topic etc.. but in "normal" conditions, DR's AI is smarter thatn ArmA2's
Anyway, now I bought a super machine, and I re-encountered ArmA and prefer it, but DR should be an advice to BIS, saying "beware, there are some guys trying to make better games than you, and in some topics, the have done it"
