Firefly2442 released an updated version of his Arma Mission Briefing Conversion tool on the BI forums.
Quote firefly2442 : Just a small program I put together for converting missions.
This program batch upconverts old OFP and Arma style missions to the new briefing system used in Arma2. It parses the briefing.html file and pulls out the appropriate sections and creates a briefing.sqf file. Debriefing is still kept and saved to a new briefing.html file.
It's mostly untested at the moment, although it seems to be able to run without any errors.
Hopefully this is helpful to someone who is nostalgic about all the great old missions that are out there. If anyone wants to add support to this program for converting from Arma2 to Arma3, I would certainly love to get a pull request on Github.
Made a couple of tweaks and improvements. Should be able to run on more missions now without failing.
Soner released an updated version of the battleWarden:RCon tool on the BI forums.
Quote Soner : battleWarden is a highly flexible toolset for the anti-cheat engine BattlEye which is being used in the popular tactical military simulation known as ArmA 2. Currently it only consists of battleWarden:RCon (commonly known as ArmA 2 RCon), a powerful remote control tool for Armed Assault 2 servers running with BattlEye.
The development started back in the year 2010 when there was not any remote control tool available for administrators featuring a graphical user interface but only a standard console-based program provided by BattlEye itself. This case resulted from the fact that there was not any official specification of the BattlEye network protocol released at the time. Thus we decided to analyse the whole protocol and to build our own fully compatible BattlEye client which was then integrated into a new flexible GUI for the Windows platform. After its release it quickly became the de facto standard remote control tool among the server administrators in the Armed Assault community.
Since then battleWarden:RCon has been updated consistently in order to support all new releasing features of BattlEye. By this way we ensure to fit all the needs of the Armed Assault administrators.
supporting admin names
now has some premium features (except battleWarden:Spy) for Non-Premium version.
Mikero informed the community on the BI forums he released updates and additions to his Mikero's Dos Tools.
Quote Mikero : The Dos Tool kit contains over twenty different exe's to ease the burden, chief among them:
- Powerful lintchecking
- Make and extract pbo's
The heart of all Dos Tools and Eliteness is dePbo.dll. This dll is in a continuous state of refinement, and has been consistenly upgraded for past 5 years. DePbo.dll is the 'driver' behind most of Mikero's tools.
It is intended to be a non-reinventing-the-wheel service so that any application can access one, well proven, decompression algorithm (eg), rather than re-writing or pasting the source code again and again into different exe's.
updates to dep3d and friends (eliteness) for better decoding of arma3 p3d's
pboProject which replaces BI's binPbo / AddonBuilder and builds islands 'correctly' The bis equivalents cannot do so without some serious stuffing about.
improvements to deKey to ensure correct version2 bisign files (*some*) arma3 alphas were occasionally incorrect.
small fixes to dews to properly decode (and encode) stereo channels. Eliteness now uses this decoder to autoplay wss files
