Hello everyone. I was just wondering if all the skins on this site in the addons section work in v1.08? I installed version 1.08 over my version 1.05 ArmA. When I play a game all of my soldiers do not have rifles??? So I uninstalled my ArmA and now I am reinstalling it, but this time with the ArmA version 1.08. Now the thing is when I uninstalled my old ArmA install...It didn't remove all the addon skins, the desert vehicles etc. Anyways can some one tell me what addon is compatible with version 1.08? Thank you. I would mainly like to have all the US skins from this site, the helicopter addons, MCN's desert vehicles for blue and opfor, and of course Islands too. Ooops I almost forgot these were the errors I received when I installed 1.08 over y old version 1.05:

No entry 'bin\config/CfgWeapons/M4AIM.selectionsfire.Anim'
No entry 'bin\config/CfgWeapons/M4AIGL.name sound'

Please help. Thank you

You have to remove all custom addons from the default arma/addons folder before patching to 1.08!!!!
That is why we always say people should use mod folders.

This doesnt mean all addons are compatible with 1.08 and I wouldn't know which are or arent.
After patching to 1.08 try it. Also read the download page, often in there you will see if the addon is compatible with earlier versions.

Visit my family webshop desteigerhoutshop.nl.

Thank you I did a brand new install of v1.08 and I added the addons's one by one and no problems at all. With my EVGA eGforce 8800 GTX 768mb card I can make a company of opfor 200+ soldiers and tanks etc vs blue forces with the same amount of troops and the fps is smooth!!! I really love the skins both USMC desert marpat and US Army ACU's 101st and 1ST ID. Now all we need is a Baghdad Island and some insurgent skins!!!

As Fox says use modfolders to manage addons. You can see how to use them in our FAQ.

Use it with an ArmA launcher and all will be easier for you. When patching, you just need to move out the modfolders of the installation one and then when it's finished place them back.
