Hello everyone. I'm in a realism unit that's based off the Marine Corps. I want to use a Army replacement pack but the server doesn't have Army units only Marines. So my question would be, how would I get the replacement pack to work? When I go into game it loads the Marine units instead of the replacement pack.

I've asked this question at my unit's forums and the best answer I got was this;

"You need a replacement config to tell your Arma to load the Army units instead of the Marine units. This is completely a client-side thing and has nothing to do with the server. That means someone has to write this config file for you, or you can do it yourself.

You would have much better luck asking this question on either the Armaholic or BIS forums."

I use ArmA2 Launcher to enable all of my mods.

The replacements I want to work are the following;

ACU's

Multicam

If you guys/gals need anymore information please feel free to ask and I'll get back to you ASAP. Thank you for your time.

You need to install all the unit addons and additionally you need to install the replacement addons. Than it should work.
I would try it one by one, first see if you can get Bink's units and the replacement to work, than the other.

I've tried everything that's why I'm here.

When you said "You need to install all the unit addons and additionally you need to install the replacement addons." I have no idea what you mean by that. I have the mods downloaded. My problem is getting them to override the Marines so it loads Army units and not Marines.

If I'm understanding you correctly you'll need to load the addon THEN the config file addon so that the configs load last. So your mod line would read:

-mod=@unit_addons;@unit_addon_configs

The server you are joining will also need to allow these mods to be loaded.

Bless you my son.

I use ArmA 2 Launcher. The Server allows mods but it loads Marine units not Army units. So I'm trying to figure out how to make it so it will load Army units or override the Marine units with Army ones.
