For those who don't know how or just can't be bothered to change all their missions to sport the new Ifrit classname, here you go!

This just references the new Ifrit classname and inherits everything into the old Galkin classname, meaning there'll be no more missing A3_Soft_F_Galkin messages!

I haven't had time to test it beyond starting a mission so do inform me if anything's wrong.

There is a slight problem, in the map editor two versions of the Ifrit show up: the Galkin and the Ifrit classnames. I'm sure there's a workaround for this somewhere, but I don't know how to do it without compromising compatibility with missions for older versions of A3

Nice, although authors should fix their work this is nice addon if you just want to play some of the older missions and do not know how to fix it yourself :-)

For mission makers or others.

You can also open the mission.sqm file with ArmaEdit or something that will find and replace text. Then just replace Galkin with Ifrit. So "A3_Soft_F_Galkin" becomes "A3_Soft_F_Ifrit" and all the cars becomes "O_Ifrit_MG_F" or "O_Ifrit_GMG_F".

A newbie should read, for example the installation notes on the downloadpage: Fix for missing A3_Soft_F_Galkin [ALPHA]
Or search and find our Guide On Installing Mods
