Goliath86 released an updated version of his CorePatch, a config patch for Arma 2 OA, on the BI forums.
Quote : 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.
Hcpookie released the first version of his Pook SAM Pack on the BI forums.
Quote : Modern SAM Systems including 9K33x, 9K37, 9K317, and 96K6 platforms. Their original Russian designations are used. Missile performance and behavior based on real-world data and video footage. The 9K33x, 9K37, and 9K317 are normally radar guided, and they can also be optically guided in an ECM-heavy environment. Therefore, I added manual control to these missiles. This is subject to removal in future releases based on feedback.
All BIS factions represented, since it stands to reason that the CDF and Takistani Army would have acquired these in their inventories.
9K331/9K332 Tor (SA-15)
9K37 / 9K317 Buk (SA-11)
96K6 Pantsir (SA-22)
The pook_SA11 pack requires the Rangemaster mod for the SA-11 texture (part of FRL_Missilebox).
The baseline pook_SAM, pook_SA22 and pook_SA15 do not have any other dependencies.
Eggbeast released an updated version of his BAFX and Rangemaster mod packs on the BI forums.
Quote : Two packs of mods that brings together lots of community developed improvements into a set of enhanced vehicles, aircraft and weapons to play with.
I would like to offer a huge thank you to all the contributors over the past 18 months that have allowed this mod pack to come about.
It's still a little shabby in places - my fault entirely - and we have plans to polish it up some more in due course.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy playing with it.

S@ndBob informed us he released an updated version of his Gulf Of Aqaba Map on the BI forums.
Quote : This project refers to a landscape east of the Sinai Peninsula.
It is a so-called quadrilateral region (Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) with a real-Terrain on the Gulf of Aqaba with the cities of Aqaba (jord.), Eilat, Eilot (isra.) and Taba (egyp.).
The Real-terrain is 20.48 x 20.48 km = ~ 420 km2.
A huge satellite image (pixels nearly 500 million) I used as a template where what belongs to roads, buildings, etc..
Thanks to ArcGIS and USGS (NASA Earth Data).
The map is still expandable. In the North Eastern mountain roads and camps can be expanded. This will happen in a later update.
In 2020 Egyptian and Palestinian radical Islamic terrorist organizations have toppled the Egyptian government and occupy large parts of Jordan and also operate in Israel. Israel and Jordan fight (as it was in 1970) side by side against terrorism.
The story leans heavily on the historical background from 1970, with the terrorist PLO and its offshoot, the Jordanian government ousted in part, threatened and terrorized. Without the flow of arms from the U.S. and the military support of Israel, Jordan probably would lost the war against the PLO and Syria.

QuickDagger released an updated version of his Dagger Ballistics mod on the Armaholic forums.
Quote QuickDagger : Here´s a new mod. It adds many new ammo types and magazines to the game featuring real life ballistics data.
Inside you will find a very detailed manual explaining all the new ammo types, their ballistic charts, dispersion and effective range, how they behave in different rifles, how they should be employed, how to make some ballistics calculations as well as calculating bullet penetration and hit values. And much more.
My intention was to bring a wider variety of ammo with special ammos to special soldiers. Among the bullets you will find SLAP, tear gas, explosive, frangible, duplex, hollow point, and more.
There is also a LEA config to speed up all your tests with the new stuff included in the mod.
Reduced visibleFireTime to 0.75 seconds in order to improve FPS on servers, over ACE defaults.
Fixed a problem with silenced ammo causing deafness, all thanks to TechnoPanda´s feedbacks.
