Goliath86 released an updated version of his CorePatch, a config patch for Arma 2 OA, on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    I want to inform the community that I'm working on a simple config patch for Arma 2 OA. My objective is to correct all the errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63) show with the command line -showScriptErrors.

    This is still WIP cause first I have to find these errors and then try to correct them.

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

    In earlier version I had fixed two common errors:
    1. The Functions Module error relative to the BIS_fnc_init variable not initialized;
    2. Some errors relative to the handleGear.sqf script, launched when entering in the gear menu or by clicking items in the gear menu.

    • version
        - Fixed the Fire-In-The-Sky bug (thanks to eggbeast that provided me the Dwarden's script fix!)
        - Fixed some errors in the Dwarden's script fix of the Fire-In-The-Sky bug
    • version
        - Fixed 5 script errors on BIS First Aid and Battlefield Clearance modules

W0lle released the Cold War Rearmed² - West German Army expansion on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    Thanks to the kind donations of Marseille77 and vilas, we're happy to present you another small Expansion for CWR².

    At present, it features "only" some units, their weapons and small editor objects. But be sure there will be more in future updates. Stay tuned and meanwhile have fun with these fine guys!

    No missions included yet cause two weeks ago my mountain bike and me ran into a cow on a mountain trip. The cow won and I went 20 meters downhill and was stopped by a rock. The bike is a pile of junk and I ended up with a hell lot of broken bones.
    I can only use left arm, no way I can work on missions now. Alone packing the expansion took me 3 days.

    I hope you still have some fun with these guys and their tools!

    Quote FoxFort :
    This addon will REPLACE your vanilla CHDKZ infantry textures.

    This addon changes CHDKZ infantry uniform textures into similar uniform textures of "Donbass People's Militia" in Eastern Ukraine crisis of 2014. I decided to name them "Zagoria People's Militia" (ZPM). I didn't made any changes to the ingame names in order to preserve compability with Singleplayer
    New uniforms are: Spectre-S, Flora, Gorka with Berezka, solo Berezka for medic and Izlom for commander.

    Since I've changed the name from "CHDKZ_camo" into "ZPM". This is now v1.0 of ZPM.
