1.Whats the Difference between ACE 2 and ACE?
2.What is ACRE?
3.What are the mods I need to install to join ACE servers in Arma 2?
4.How do I install ACE mod and ACRE?

Thank you if you answer in advanced :D i really need the help i cant find these answers anywhere else.

Ace 2 is obviously much more advanced and better than the normal Ace, that's all. I think Ace was for the "Armed Assault" game, I wasn't around that time so not sure, ArmA 2 and onwards it was Ace 2. Now of course Ace 3 for ArmA 3.

ACRE is a radio chat plugin similar to the Task Force Radio addon. For the other questions about what you need you can find installation instructions on our download pages, not only that but all over YouTube you will find an abundance of content helping you out.

Welcome to Armaholic :-)

Thank you very much!, I was so confused about the ACE thing so thank you very much, Im very new to Arma so I really dont know much besides the Editor and campaign, I just bought the Arma X anniversary Edition this Christmas thinking I could easily get into it, and also a quick question, is there anyone still playing the Vanilla multiplayer? all i see are Dayz servers and I cant currently buy Arma 3 if all the vanilla games are there.

I Personally play ArmA 3 so couldn't help you with that mate, though it wouldn't surprise me as the mod "DayZ" was that popular. I am sure if you look around though you would find a vanilla server somewhere, or you could always team up with your online friends :-)

Yeah I guess so, I guess buying arma 2 was a waste of money? arma 3 looks awesome but again budget is damn low, already found a vanilla server though so that's good not much players but its okay, and also I actually only have 1 friend who has Arma 2 because everyone else of my friends are either COD players or RPG players XD.

ArmA 2 is great in its own way, for example the ArmA 3 is more futuristic and in that way ArmA 2 wins as its more realistic to life. Apart from new maps and upgraded graphics etc in A3 they are the only differences really. ArmA 3 will more than likely be on sale in the coming steam summer sale on the 23rd of June so just keep an eye out for it :-)

Yeah heard of that, Any chance it will be on too in the Winter sale? Dont really have the budget for it right now and im planning on buying it with a couple of other games as well. What server do you play on BTW? and also when do you think like Arma 4 will release or be announced? I know its a weird question but i'm worried that by the time i buy arma 3 this winter sale they announce arma 4 or something XD

I can't promise anything but I predicted it right last time when going over all the other releases of the ArmA series and from the Armed Assault, ArmA 2, and ArmA 3 there has always been roughly a 3 year gap, so as ArmA 3 was released back in 2013 I would say that it was about time they announced something, BUT - they are still working very hard on ArmA 3 with the likes of the ArmA 3 Apex just 1 month away from release so this makes my prediction not worthy anymore lol.

I would say 2017 we would either hear of another major expansion OR a whole new ArmA 4, who knows :-)

Summer Sale, Winter Sale, its always got 95% of the games on steam up for sale, so I expect it to be on there again of course. I dont really play much ArmA 3 MP these days as im playing a lot of other games plus working on my own game I am designing using Unity and Blender for modeling etc... I am a busy man, with also working on my own site :-)

I have some hope that BI will take a break from Arma for a while, like CD Projekt RED with the Witcher. Even if they don't, and announce the new Arma game in 2017, we won't get the full game until 2018, and from my Arma experience we'll still be playing Arma 3 by it's side until at least 2019. With the summer sale coming up (and of course APEX) like DarkXess said, I'd say it's a great time to get Arma 3.

Sometimes I like to think as I started the whole "earplugs" thing.

W0lle: The only advice I can give you is: Do not try to understand BI. You will not succeed and it only makes your brain go boom. I would even go so far and say that not even they understand their own actions :-D.

Yeah I hope so, Thanks for the contribution to my question dude, Im glad its the right time to get Arma 3, Ive been planning on getting it since 2014 but it was a bit too pricey at that time, Now was the right time for me and I didn't know if Arma 3 would be a great time to grab now, so thanks guys!
