Goliath86 submitted an updated version of his CorePatch, a config patch for Arma 2 OA.

    Quote Goliath86 :
    This is a simple config/script patch for Arma 2 OA. My objective is to correct all the errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63) show with the launch command line -showScriptErrors.

    Upon rollout of 1.63 patch, Bohemia included a new script interpreter that show all the undefined variable present inside scripts. There are a lot of them and maybe they cause script to not run properly.

    Because of ArmA 3, BI programmer have not much time to spend try correcting errors of an old product, as a programmer I understand this, so I decided to use my skills to try to fix these errors as best as I can.

    If anyone know about some of these errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63), with no mods, show in-game with the launch command line -showScriptErrors, inform me in this thread and I will try to fix them.

    • Fixed few "Undefined variable.." remaining bugs
    • Fixed the Bitter Chill mission lag
    • Changed Garbage Collector Module behaviour: now it doesn't automatically collect not-alive objects when it starts, for default.

CWR2 PR released the Cold War Rearmed² - Women Expansion on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    It took much longer than expected, and at some point we were not sure if we can ever deliver them. But now the time has come, today we proudly present the long expected CWR² Women Expansion.

    These fine ladies can drive cars, fly planes and fire their weapons at you like their male counterparts do.
    Never seen a female flying a Hind gunship and hunting you down? Now you will.
    Never been killed by a female sniper? Now you will, too.

    Almost all credit goes to von Knudenberg who spent many months on these ladies. And if he would have hair, they would have cost him a lot of them!
    Thanks also goes to Imari for assistance with the textures.
    And last but not least: A special thanks to our wifes and girlfriends for their nerves, patience and motivation in the past years. They are the true stars of Cold War Rearmed²!

    Now, it's time for you to meet Aino, Alina, Cleo, Darja, Ilona, Inge, Monique, Olga and Tina!
    Download links are in the first post as always.

    Please, take a few minutes and read the included Documentation!

W0lle released an updated version of the Soviet Airborne Infantry Expansion for the Cold War Rearmed² mod on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    This Expansion for Cold War Rearmed² adds Soviet Airborne Infantry and some armored vehicles.

    Somehow the Spetsnaz units had problems with holding weapons correctly. Eventually caused by an accidentally moved/rotated proxy. Problem is fixed now and the other models checked as well, just to be sure.

W0lle released an updated version of the Canard Island Expansion for the Cold War Rearmed² mod on the Armaholic forums

    Quote :
    Canard Island is a scaled down version of Norfolk Island in the Pacific Ocean. The name Canard (french: Duck) is somewhat of an in-joke between CWR² members (the duck part that is). The names of the various parts of the island and the towns located on it are based off of real places on Norfolk Island.
    The island is meant to be in the same area as the Malden islands. It features five towns, two of which are ports, a small runway for Pegasus Air Taxi, a number of forests, and scattered farms.

    • fix the reported wrong terrain shape.

    What the eff happened? While exporting the Drachenfels terrain from !splendid Visitor3, the terrain was accidently exported into the Canard Project folder.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused, and thanks to "A Chicken" for reporting it at our website.

CWR2 PR released version 1.01 of the Cold War Rearmed² beta on the Armaholic forums.
With this update all their other releases have also been updated and also some new ones have been released.

    Quote CWR2 PR :
    This Modification is the result of around 5 years of development and thousands of hours spent by countless people working on this Project in their spare free time. Without their dedication, and the generous model donations of many people this giant project could have never finished.

    All our releases are dedicated to James 'Planck' McNicoll.

    This is the end of CWR² Development. We may provide fixes for critical problems, there may even smaller changes and additions but there’s no guarantee they will happen. And if they do, they are released as single pbo files and maybe even without documentation.
    We are sure that even without further development, our fans and follower will have many hours of fun and good memories with what we have achieved in the past 8 years. We surely do.

    Finally, we want to say thanks again to all the skilled people who contributed to our Mod, be it for years or just a one-time-fix. Without you, we would have never achieved the high quality Mod as it is now.
    Thanks also to our many contributors who allowed us to use their work in CWR². Especially the guys from CSLA Mod, Robert Hammer and vilas.
    Last but not least, thanks to Ivan Buchta who often helped us with his knowledge when we were stuck with some problem. Who provided us required models while his colleagues just ignored us. We owe you, too. 

showmaker submitted his Dak To terrain.

    Quote :
    Here comes Dak To, a map that has been developed by Showmaker for the Unsung mod. On the 2.5 x 2.5 km island in Vietnam
    you find a range of settlements, an NVA base, a US base and a radio relay station. These places are connected by a handful
    of roads and path which provide for easy exploration for the foot soldier and the Armor crews.

    After Mekong Delta and Phu Bai were completed and released in Unsung 2.6, this island project took form. A rural area
    with patches of houses sprinkled here and there, accompanied by the ever present rice paddies, embedded in a landscape
    divided by forests and hills, was aimed for. Hopefully this depicts fighting in remote, yet somewhat populated areas
    during the Vietnam conflict. You, the player, will be the judge if this has been achieved.

** Thank to TeTeT for sending us the information
