Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

ACE2 config files Installation:
Just put the ACE2 Optional Config (called "mas_us_seals_ace.pbo") in the modfolder of your preference and you'll see in the editor only the Ranger ACE classes.
This config DO NOT replace original Ranger units, instead it only "hide" them in the editor by setting them as "protected", I did in this way in order to get the maximum compatibility and to avoid changing classnames of the units (for mix makers).

Units and settings are the same as for standard Rangers, but they're all equipped with ACEX gear (Balaclava , Gas Mask and earplugs) and ACEX weapons (spotters have rangefiders and kestrel 4500, demo expert uses ACEX explosives like M18 and C4, CQB units like breacher and CQB operator have tear gas and flash bangs,...) .
Units use "English" if Ace AI Talk is enabled.
Units are placed same way as for vanilla game in the editor:
Bluefor - US Army (BIS) - 75th Ranger... (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Army (BIS) - 75th Ranger... (sorted by different camos).

Replacement Pack Installation:
You'll find 5 different replacement files, you can use ONLY ONE AT A TIME !!!
Just choose your preferred camo (from the 5 option available), and put the relative replacement in a modfolder, you'll see standard BI Delta Force models replaced by US SEAL's ones, all with working wound textures activated.
Graves characters (light and heavy) are replaced as well ... so you can play the campaign again, with a bit different feeling.


Included .pbo files:
mas_us_rangs.pbo
mas_us_rangs_ace.pbo
mas_us_rangs_repl_acu.pbo
mas_us_rangs_repl_des.pbo
mas_us_rangs_repl_mul.pbo
mas_us_rangs_repl_pcu.pbo
mas_us_rangs_repl_wod.pbo


Usage:
You will find the units in the editor under:
Bluefor – US Army (BIS)- 75th Ranger ... (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Army (BIS) - 75th Ranger ... (sorted by different camos).
