Hi all,

I've been experiencing some problems whilst using blastcore in Arma II. I Initially downloaded the mod after watching youtube videos and seeing the excellent smoke effects. However, I don't experience the same. Whenever I see an explosion, I only get very minimal smoke effects and sometimes no smoke at all. In the case of no smoke at all, I usually just get particles flying through the air. That said, sometimes I get nothing but the sound upon impact.

I'm running everything on "very High" in game, incase that's of any use.


I have Arma II with the latest stable patch (1.7 I believe), Arma II OA patched to 1.59 (running AII & AIIOA as combined Op's) and also the BAF add on. I launch the game through "Arma II Launcher" , Where I select the mods I'd like to use and it adds them to the exe of the program. I also have CBA running too.

Does anybody have any answers to this problem? It's more than likely something on my part. But I though I'd put it out there to see if anybody can help me solve the problem.

Many thanks in advance, for taking the time to read this thread,

Regards,

Mac.

Try updating ArmA II to the latest 1.10 patch, also when you say everything is on very high, is that everything including HDR, Post processing etc?

Addon related troubles/questions (for released addons) belong in the "Addons and Mods: Complete" section. In this case the "Other" sub section. Topic moved.

I quickly checked the original release topic and is it possible you are using other custom content with this at the same time? If so disable all other custom files you have so only Blastcore is active and see if the problem has gone.

Hi mate,


Does this include custom maps too? Ie, Just run the game without any mods at all? Thanks mate.

Added 1 hour 29 minutes later:

I've tried this. I must admit there's a slight improvement but nothing compared to the youtube video's i've seen. The effect I get is some translucent smoke that lingers for a few seconds. I don't get the dust particles around the blast radius and the actual smoke created from the blast isn't as "thick" or "full bodied" as the video's I've seen.

Any ideas?

Hi bud, Yep, everything is on very high High, Including HDR and post proc'. I'll try updating to the 1.10 patch and see if that works out.

Cheers,

Mac.

Try setting post-processing to normal or low and see if that changes it.

I'm running blastcore aswell and mine is running fine. Blastcore doesn't really gov you that hardcore smoke as I have seen? Which video are you referring to? Is it the 1 with the c130 and the gbu-12 bomb? Also what I done was I downloaded particle effects v 1.4 and ran it in it's own modfolder, without replacing the one in my blastcore mod folder, which turned out for me to add a difference with the particle fx. Also. I use "JTD fire and smoke" effects which is preety good. It adds fires that burn the remains of vehicles for 20 minutes even longer if you change the
Config, which can be seen from miles away and gives a sence of battlefield history, and it also gives you the option of enabling Forrest fires that can break out and also fuel fires, but can slow your performance down if you don't have a fast pc. Try that out and let me know..

Grunt, you need to put the folder named JTD in your "userconfig" folder.
And no im not on about the .pbo files! in the JTD addon in which you downloaded
there should also be a folder called "userconfig" then inside that you will see
a folder called "JTD". Put this one in your game directory >> userconfig folder!
that should fix it. :-)

1st - Check The Rules! 2nd - Use The Search!

Yer that's it. Don't give up it's really simple. Did downloading particle fx 1.4 do anything? Did you get blastcore running?
