Hello,

I have a problem.

today I updated my Arma 2 OA to the latest patch and have the following addons :

ACE
ACEX
CBA
A2WarMod
A2WarModSM
GL4 (some of it)
SLX (some of it)
also updated to the very latest with the Six Updater.

before patching all the stuff it worked well with charges.

I have this small mod http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=9908&highlight=SATCHEL for satchel charges which allow to attach a charge to a vehicle and set timers etc.

However now, my soldier and his IA friends are unable to use a satchel charge on the ground,

the action menu simply doesn't contain "put satchel charge" anymore

it only contains the options brought by the GDT mod (ex. attach to vehicle)

it's not possible anymore to simply put a charge on the ground.

anyone got knowledge about this bug?

thank you!

Its not a bug, its an issue obviously caused by the addon.
Disable the addon and its fixed.
If you still want to use the addon you will have to see if you can fix it yourself, or contact the author and hope he can help you fix it :-)

Hello


however I have tried another addon for satchels, and it had two consequences:

1) the "put satchel" was not available either
2) funny thing : mini-nuke satchels with a kill radius of 80 m

I will test without the addon but it's a pity, that addon was very nice

Added 15 seconds later:

thank you ! by the way

Added 10 minutes later:

doesn't work.. satchel charge functions simply disappeared with the updates
removing the addon didn't fix it

Added 2 minutes later:

for that reason the way you renamed that post is wrong

it should be "latest patches break satchel charges function"

>-o

Works ok on my end, never had the issue with any patch.

What patch are you running? and how did you patch it? manually or via steam?

i'm running

Arma 2 OA v1.59
I patched it manually
and for my add-ons I used Six Updater which updated all of them automatically
I did the update to 1.59 to be able to play "1944"
i'm annoyed with that satchel problem
if you're also patched at 1.59 can you check if satchels works on your end?

Added 7 minutes later:

there is a fresh update on Six.. installing it and i'll tell u if charges are back
thanks a lot

What your talking about is a ACE feature..... and to place them you use the self interaction menu, to change its detonation properties you use the interaction key while looking at it. I have answered this already in the ACE thread which I have linked, if the question is asked by you I will not be answering as the answer is already in there. :-)

Are you just skim reading my post? you cant place satchels using the action menu with ACE..... and you never could with OA.

I swear to you I have been using the "put satchel charges" for years this way
when I use my self action menu, normally the "put satchel charge" was there, and it planted a charge on the ground at my feet
after patching the function has disappeared along with the possibility to order an IA to plant a satchel on the ground

what advice are you giving exactly? excuse me but,

I have always had ACE installed and it worked

what is your advice?

I know how to use the "self menu" to place a charge

but the action to put a charge it not there anymore

what would your advice be?

sorry..

Added 1 minute later:

the "self menu" appears when I use my mouse roll
there are options like "safety gun" or "heal rifleman"
etc
the "put satchel" simply isn't there anymore for a reason
that is my problem.. that's all

No language problem on my end.....

As I directed you to the ACE thread did you check it? my guess is no, so here you go, I am providing you with the lazy way out.

Here and Here, also it doesn't matter if you have always had the mod, the mod is always being updated every week... things change.

Also most of your mods are going to clash as they alter gameplay.. ACE, SLX and A2WarMod for example.

I did go through the ACE thread. there is no mention of the disappearing of the option to put a charge on the ground
I just wondered if it was a known issue with the latest patch
guess it's just me..
thank you
