Erm,.. ok, well one last thing then.

Are you using stable ACE2? or downloads from the SIX updater? as it could be a recent bug as you said
you are up to date as of today! if so, then either make a report on there bug tracker or im sure there will
be another update soon. Sorry I couldnt help much.

I have Arma 2 CO with the ACE2 mods installed. I have crosshairs turned back on in the config, and the Littlebird rockets have a crosshair but the miniguns don't. How do I turn them back on?

Hi!

I've recently picked up ArmA 2 - Combined Operations on Steam. Halfway through the ArmA 2 SP-campaign ("Harvest Red") I decided to go with ACE 2 for improved immersion. If I'm correct ACE 2 is mainly suited for multiplayer although I'm glad to see that most of the improvements are present in singleplayer too.

However I'm experiencing the same issues as the quoted poster below. I can't seem to find a rangefinder, windmeter, earplugs etc. which obviously aren't present in the SP-campaign. The answer to this problem, which is also quoted below, is to "Make a copy of the campaign, then open it up and place AE Equipment Box in editor".

How is this done? I've had a look at the editor and couldn't find an option to make a copy of the SP-campaign, neither did I find out how to place the "AE Equipment Box".

Any help is greatly appreciated!

# lighthaze : Hi Guys. Got a small problem with ACE 2 and so I decided to register.

First I want to thank the developers for such a great mod: The improvement of gameplay and atmosphere is just fantastic.

Regarding my problem:

After starting the original ARMA 2 campaign with ACE activated I encountered a nastly little problem: The main character has no ear plugs in his inventory. The consequence is, of course, constant deafness.

Is there any possible way to give the main character ear plugs or make the game in any other way enjoyable?

thanks in advance!

Anyone?

I really want to use these ACE2 features during the SP-campaign for absolute immersion.

You have to find the missions.pbo/missions_e.pbo in the arma2 directory and open it up using a pbo extracter, Eliteness, cPbo and BinPBO for example, it cant be done while ingame without doing that first, once its extracted it will be in file format, you can then find the missions and one at a time load them in the editor and place the equipment box.

Yes, this seems to work.

I used cPbo to extract the "missions.pbo" in the ArmA 2/AddOns folder. I then moved the extracted files to My Documents/ArmA 2/Missions which made them visible in the editor. I placed the "Magic box" at the beginning of one of the levels and it contained EVERYTHING :)

I'll do this for all of the campaign missions. Should I create a .pbo of the "Missions" folder in My Documents and then replace the new missions.pbo with the old one in ArmA 2/AddOns to get this to work in the SP-campaign?

Thanks!

I hope this doesn't cunt as digging up an old thread, but if I created a new thread about it, I would get told to go to the ACE topic.
Ok, so I'm having trouble downloading ACE using Yoma addon sync. Whe I get to the page where I download, I click download addons, the it brings me to the page where I can choose the server. Any suggestions on what to do?

Is this for ArmA II ACE? Never used Yoma before as I'm content with SixUpdater; seems you sync with the server you want to play on and get all the mods they require you to have.... if its for ArmA II ACE you can download the stable's here, s A2 ACE isnt in ongoing development; its final.

make modfolders which are provided with the downloads anyway, never add usermade content to the vanilla addons folder.

Where you always place them if you use mod folders. And if you don't know how to make mod folders read the FAQ which is linked on every downloadpage.

Visit my family webshop desteigerhoutshop.nl.

Installing ACE2 for Arma 2 using Six Updater


ACE mission scripting commands :)



I'm playing Domination/ACE2 online. And there are items such as Spotter scope/Gas masks, Items which I believe came with ACE2.
But I don't know how to use any of these. I put them in my gear but after that they're basically doing nothing?
