The ace mod works strictly for the ace/vanilla aircraft it must be a uncompatability with third party addons with ace, as for the parachute thing you have to get one before u enter the aircraft this can be dont at a ammobox (non steerable and steerable) or sometimes in the action menu close to the aircraft.

Some plains work automaticly with eject if it is added by the addon maker, and for the one he points out i use the 1.05 stable version and a second one of Ace II the six updated one. eather way they works fine on both for me if i remember correct, so or he runs more mods that are not compatible with the plains or ...

F-16 Fighting Falcon by Myke

As far as i know the F14 and the F16 falcon works with shutes, i can't answer directly because i don't know how you set up your game and mods (addons) the only thing i can think of now is that you did not configured the userconfig files, a lot of stuff will only be converted towards ace II configuration on your profile when you edit that userconfig ....

I have the steam version of the game and I put all my mods I get in my addons folder. I have no clue how to configure the user configuration so a link on how to do that would be much appreciated and thank full. The parachute I went to the boxes and checked(in editor) and didn't see one. As far as ACE mods I have in I have Ace 2 Core, Ace 2 Extra and Ace 2 ACEX PLA. Again any help is appreciated guys, sorry if some of this is stupid fix but I have never modded this game and am I really bad at modding.

euhm lol i dont play this game on steam but i have empire total war so best guess is, first of all you should not put your addons in the same folder as the original content of the game please go HERE for more info, i beleave there is a steam guide for mod folders out there, read carfully.

If you somehow messed it up on the fact you putted addons and mods directly in your ARMA II addon directory then you will need to reinstall the intier game and read the above instructions on that link i gave you for mod folder usage on steam, after that install the six updater, FIND SIX UPDATER HERE after installing launch the Six Updater - GUI it will dedect your Arma II automaticly i think, it might be that you need to refresh your browser once before the installer will load up, The Ace II mod Is pressed and as far as i can tell it will only install the ones you will need dependant on your Arma II, After Pressed the Ace II execute it will install ace II, just leave it till it is don, after installing the mod the userconfig should be in your main ARMA II directory folder and then folow the instructions for editing that userconfig here.

You will need to read some to get some ;-)

If you figured out the mod folder and managed to find your regular Arma II directory you will find a userconfig folder there after installing ACE II with SIX Updater, if you open that userconfig you will find an Ace folder in there, open it.

then open the ace_clientside_config with notepad scrol down, if you read the folowing

/*//////////////////////////////////////////////
//CONFIG SETTING FOR : ACE 2 MOD - Changeable glasses ingame
//--------------------
//FEATURES: Lets you choose different glasses
//---------
//TO ENABLE: Please ADD your Player Profile Name
//----------
//EXAMPLE:
//--------
//class Identity
//{
// name = "John Doe";
//};
//
//
//
//
////////--E D I T below THIS LINE--//////////*/
class Identity {
name = "John Doe";
};

replace the bold John Doe with your Arma II profile name and save it and then you should be able to use everything what ace has for use, earplugs backpacks gogles shutes and so on.

Hi, I updated ACE2 to the latest version (20-October-2010) by Six Updater. Now when I use the AT4 and variants containing the Magic Box I see that his sight is deflected. Is it a bug?, I have version 1.07 of Arma2 and 1.54 of ARMA2:OA.
Greetings

Nope not a bug, what you have to do is press 'R' which loads the AT4 round (M134 AT4 is disposable) and the flip up sights appear, and btw every update to ACE on the Six Updater is every Friday, unless a Huge Bug is found

All the best

Thank you for the help guys the problem is getting solved step by step. The last thing left is not being able to get out from some planes. This I can really just ignore(pretty much going to find out on my own) and the last thing I need to know is what box parachutes are in I probally overlooked it like a idiot.

Thanks for your answer, but that's not what I mean. What I meant is that once recharged the AT4, the sight had twisted, I think it was due to a problem with the "ANZINS cbq" mod, once deleted the mod, there aren't any problems. Thanks anyway, greetings.

Magic box won't seem to open hmm... possibly a error in my part? My config has been set but could I have done something wrong? I can get earplugs and all just fine though.

Recharged the AT4? If you mean Reloaded... How on earth? AT4 has one shot only, it starts off empty till you load it then the sights flip up. As you have this sorted though, I see no problem :-)

Strange bug you have there, Are you placing the Magic Box (Empty\ACE Ammunition\Magic Box) on the map, not off the map, area's of nothingness *CRAZY* can sometimes give errors in opening boxes and AI behaviour.

Yea placing it on the map right by the airfield so I can get it and hop in my plane. Tried playing with it some more looked through the whole magic box found a bunch of backpakcs but no chutes. The sunglasses and gas masks I picked up wouldn't equip on me(visible) if their suppose to either. Starting to sound like I have a install error.

like i said did you configure your unser config thats the only reason why it is not there, i beleave that Ace II made it possible to support Steam versions of the game. I advice you to read a little about Ace II and how to install it on your version, this is the only way to figure stuff out.

Arma II is one of the best games based on RL mil sims the producer made it so that the community could make "close" to what ever the gamer want. Basicly if you want a baby in there crying out load for momy's breasts and you have the creativety to make a 3D model and some scripting skills you can make it happen.

to use the mods it is in fact not that diffucult so i gave you the links above, what i mean is we can advice you whatever you ask us but getting a little here and there is not going to help. The first thing needed is to install correctly before you try to use the futures of the mod.

the point is the mod is not installed correctly so you can try what you want it will not work so go to:


MODFOLDER GUIDE FOR STEAM


you have 2 options or you install it with SIX UPDATER (it will auto dedect your arma installation and it will pre difine your ACE II dependant on what version of ARMA II you have it will also place a userconfig aotomaticly in the main ARMA II directory and a shortcut to launch the game with the mod) or you install the stable version, you can get that on this site on the ARMA II OA addons section and then you go download the ACE II 1.05 stable version, bear in mind that if you have the OA stand allone you need a other CBA // dont launch the mod with @CBA and @CBA_OA!

Also dont install the pbo's in your main addon folder make sure you install every mod seperate with a @ in front of it, you also need to edit your launcher so the mods will load up for steam i will give you that link!

after isntalling correctly you need to edit your userconfig file in your main ARMA II directory "if you download the stable version you will need to place that folder in your main ARMA II directory out of the ACE II modfolder" or the shutes, masks bandanas etc all the extra stuff will not show up and non usable for you if you dont edit it.

simple explanation is download all of the ace II contents on the download section unzip the files place the files in your main ARMA II directory " it should be called @ACE.

After that open the mod folders and look for the userconfig folder cut it place it also in your main ARMA II directory, when you have don that open the userconfig, open the client side in there, scrol up a couple of posts here and edit the file like the info gives you here. Save it launch your game and enjoy!!

the bothem line is go read :-) your head will not explode from it *ROFL*


ps: if you cant figure it out i'm willing to give you my skype and we can do a step by step guide, but really use this as a last resort, i want you to understand how it generaly works otherwise you will have problems in the future if you don't know how ;-)

regards ;-)

don't only uninstall!

when installing ARMAII with steam even from a DVD it will place folders on several locations

it will place folders for exsample with steam under the steam aps aplication of steam but also under the data registry and also under your computer names profile and so best way is to do a search so you will be sure that you delete everything.

ONLY DO THIS AFTER A FULL UNINSTALL OF THE GAME IT SELVES

reason is plain and simple if you do this before it might be that you delete contents that gives conflict for uninstalling the game and with steam it can be that you will have conflicts to reinstall the game and so on ...

regards
