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 bugs of BIS SP Mission "Eye For Eye"
    • Fixed: Cannot load sound 'ca\dubbing\global\radio\male01\ru\hesdowne.wss'
    • Fixed: Warnings in ca\communityconfigurationproject_e\gameplay_fixeda t1model\p3d\ccp_at1.p3d:shadow(1000)
    • Fixed: BIS SP Mission "Littlebird"
    • Fixed optics modes of "M4A1_HWS_GL" and "M4A1_HWS_GL_CAMO"

PiZZADOX released an updated version of his Dynamic Doors addon on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    This an addon to allow players to interact with doors dynamically without using the action menu.

    This addon requires a set of exceptions added to the script to enable proper usage on certain buildings and doors.
    If you find an animated door or window that is not activated with this addon, please enable the sleep and hints to debug the building and door name and send this information to me via PM.

    This addon is hugely inspired by Sniperwolf572's Arma 3 Fluid Door/Hatch Opening.

    • Changed keybindings to "User16" and "User17"
    • Faster Execution
    • Global Execution via CBA globalexecute instead of RE

Hcpookie released an updated 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)
    • NASAMS (AIM-120)
    • C-RAM ADS
    • MIM-104 Patriot System (and support vehicles)
    • SA3 static and mobile launcher vehicles

    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.

    • Fixed: Missing CDF Independent units.
    • Fixed: Wrong texture on desert OE349 antenna units.
    • Fixed: MIM-104 erratic movement on sloped surfaces.
    • Fixed: SA3 static and MIM104 popup errors discovered in MP testing.
    • New: MIM104 sites now spawn a radar and antenna nearby

Hcpookie released the first version of his hcpookie on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    I built a house for mission makers!
    The idea is that you can have a mission where you teleport from a "secret entrance" to the building, which is somewhere in a remote part of the map... for example the mine entrance just North of Feruz Abad on Takistan. Then fight your way down to the silo to place your demolition charge. Mission makers can add a trigger to blow up an object, steal the docs, all enemy dead, etc. inside the house, which will provide the mission success.

S@ndBob informed us he released an updated version of his [MIS] Jordanian Royal Army on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    The Royal Jordanian Army is part of the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF). It draws its origins from units, such as the Arab Legion, formed in the British Mandate of Transjordan in the 1920s. It has seen combat against Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973. The Army also fought the Syrians and the PLO during Black September in 1970.

    In 1996 the Jordanian Army finally established a Special Operations Command, the brain-child of Abdullah then a serving Army officer. It is tasked to deal with a possible Palestinian uprising and the growth of Islamic terrorism.

    The present day Jordanian Army is equipped with mainly Western (US and British) supplied weapons.

    • changed jordanian uniform texture into desert camouflage
    • changed some weapons / M16 and IGLA and METIS
    • changed SpecOps Officer
    • added SpecOps MG man
