I have loaded dfs_stanceindicator and dfs_stanceindicator.pbo.dfs.bisign into files ArmA 2/@dfs_stanceindicator/Addons as directed but I keep getting the message Userconfig\dfs\dfs_staveindicator\stave_up_run_paa not found.
I have found another file with 5 different stances + the one not found by the game.
Where are they supposed to be so the game can find them?
Have I missed the obvious here?
Many thanks
Martin

When you mispalce a thread just ask a mod/admin to move it to the correct area instead of reposting. This new thread is also in the wrong section. Issues with custom content do not belong in the troubleshooting section! Only issues with the default game belong there.

** topic moved.

Extract the userconfig from the ZIP archive to your ARMA 2 installation directory.

Did you do that?


PS: when asking questions about specific content always add a link to the content. Makes it easier for others to help.

Sorry Foxhound, not making a good first impression with the admin here with regards to placing posts.
I extracted the files as per Deadfasts instructions on his ArmAholic webpage

ie: In c:\....Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2 I have created a folder @dfs_stanceindicator\Addons
In this folder I have put dfs_stanceindicator file and the .pbo.dfs.bisign file.

When I run ArmA2 through OA I get the "Userconfig\dfs\dfs_staveindicator\stave_up_run_paa not found" on starting a mission, basic training.

I have found the six different, "stance_.... .paa" files in the original downloaded zip file.

My question was/is do these need to go somewhere as when I open the file containing these it does not tell me where I should put them and I cannot find any info pertaining to these files on Deadmans website.

I am sorry for being such a noob but I have never had a game where you insert mods manually. Even when I played with mods in COD it was a lot more straightforward.

Thank you for your patience
Martin

And how did you sort it? If you fix something sharing the solution is always appreciated. (I still think you did not add the userconfig).

Yes I did as you suggested and added the userconfig into ArmA 2 directory direct rather than, as I had mistakenly done, added it into @dfs_stanceindicator folder.
I must have mistook the rule of always putting mods into a mods folder as I thought that all addons should go into their own addons folder within the '@folder'.
I am finding that mod attaching, like the game play and this forums setup :-) are quite a steep learning curve. But I am learning, slowly
Thank you for your help and patience.

Martin

Well, you are confusing things a bit ;-)
Custom content (addons/mods) should always be installed using a mod folder!
BUT
Some addons/mods come with a specific userconfig file, you need to install such file in the userconfig file folder, not in the mod folder you created for the .pbo's.
This means you can end up with a userconfig file in your root arma2 folder looking like this (just an example):
userconfig\dfs\dfs_stanceindicator\file_xxx.xxx
userconfig\ACE\ace_clientside_config.hpp
userconfig\ACE\ace_keys.hpp


And so on. The userconfig folder is just a seperate folder to be used for special stuff ;-)
