Ok mate, awesome job! not much at all wrong with them apart from 2 things I found...

*This was all while playing with Vanilla ArmA2 / OA.

I got an error loading the units from the editor into game, though it works fine after the error here
is what im getting: "Cannot load texture 2ndrangers\data\gloves\gloves_co.paa."

Then the 2nd problem is though im not sure if you meant to do this, the tywraps on the webbing have no
textures at all, they are just plain white / greyish ... looks like they are missing the texture. Not sure what you
call them in the US but maybe something like cuffs! lol.

Final thing is they have a little shadow problems here and there, though its beta so nothing to worry about!
and awesome release none the less, thank you so much mate.

Edit:
Oh and just one other thing, how and what does the ESS Tactical Glasses work? you need to put
something in the init line? or run it WITH the rangers .pbo? and hey, take out the bikey and besign
it as you have not properly signed it, ive just noticed! lol

I think the Tywraps are the correct colour, they're essentially just huge cable ties, but a lot more lightweight and saves carrying a pair of handcuffs. I suppose they'd be available in all different colours, even bright orange if you look hard enough.

I'm also getting the "Cannot load texture 2ndrangers\data\gloves\gloves_co.paa." error, I'm running Operation Arrowhead, Vanilla and BAF. (Will download PMC later and try it with that.)

However from first looks and having a little play around with them, these units are amazing.

Thanks DG.

Thanks for all the hard work Davey!
These are just what I have been waiting for to finish my first mission release.
Keep yourself safe on your next deployment, and thanks for putting your butt on the line to keep us all Free.

Very nice indeed, Squad.xml is shown on the left arm, Is there anyway we could put the name of the unit on the right arm like shown in your pics or will that involve quite a lot of editing (unpacking etc), apart from the missing bisign files, an awesome release :-)

The HGU 56 FLIGHT HELMET, GENTEX MFS MAXILLO FACIAL SHIELD FOR HGU 56 FLIGHT HELMET, HGU 56 FLIGHT HELMET (VISOR DOWN), ESS GLASSES (clear,yellow,black), ESS ICE NARO WITH COMTAC II, SURFIRE AND RHINO MOUNT (arma 2 oa us army vanilla) are all very nice as well, I was about to bug report that the clear and black glasses look the same when equipping them but soon found out different while wearing them in-game. :-)

i have just posted the latest vervions to foxhound and they should be up soon, but for those that cant wait i managed to fix all the texture path names ( this was due to me renaming the addon from my units name to the standard ranger name)

if you cant wait that long though here are the files

Rangers and Shades

http://www.gamefront.com/files/20443136/rangers.rar

http://www.gamefront.com/files/20896667/ess_tactical_sunglasses.pbo

http://www.gamefront.com/files/20433811/daveygary_backpacks_rar

the sunglasses are used like sunglasses ( edit profile )

sorry about all the errors, these should be worked out now!

Just trying to recall if you said these camelpacks would be compatible with the ACE packing feature? Cant seem to get it to work if so....

Hmm how come my last comment was edited?

that was a quick fix. THX

this one is gone :-)
CAnnot load material file 2ndranger\data\pyle.rvmat
this one is still there *SCRATCH*
Cannot load textures 2ndrangers\data\eye2_nohq.paa

p.s.: "sorry about all the errors" no need to be sorry you did a good job, we have to be grateful instead.
