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.

    • Merged BIS Ambient Animals Module from BIS Module Improvements Projects by
    • Merged BIS Jukebox Module from BIS Module Improvements Projects by
    • Merged BIS_fnc_locations fixes from BIS Module Improvements Projects by
    • Fixed BIS Zora (Zone Restriction) Module (removed "Known Bugs" reported even on BI Wiki)
    • Merged BIS Ambient Civilian (Expansion) Module from BIS Module Improvements Projects by

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.
    • Fixed the M1022 BC, added the .50 A-Max, added the .50 M20, added the .338 SD, added the 12.7x107 caliber.
    • Now, all vehicles use Dagger ammo.

QuickDagger released an updated version of his Dagger Scopes addon on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote QuickDagger :
    I like to play the game as a long range shooter, which means I stay 75% of the time looking though scopes. I´ve bought myself a wide screen and could not accept the fact that I had to keep using only a tinny part of its potential by looking through small scope lens all the time. It was a bit claustrophobic to me . In real life, besides the image on a scope be of a small FOV - Field Of View, in your brain the image is formed as something bigger. And the image itself can be a lot larger, should you employ proper eye relief. Don´t need to say you can always shoot with both eyes opened. All those factors have made me build some new scopes with a better screen fit. Because my FOV´s might be a little wider it does not mean they are cheating. A little wider scope for a very narrow FOV is still narrow enough.
    Then, I´ve tested the SWM mod and got amazed by their wide screen reticles. So, I thought I could do the same and ... here we are!

    All scopes were made for extremely accurate range estimation and bullet drop compensations!

    Inside this pack you will find a detailed manual explaining how to operate each one of the scopes and bringing detailed information about the magnification and ballistics math.

    • Added new scopes like H59 and some others.

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!
