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

Included .pbo files:
To play as a predator, familiarize yourself
with User action keys (Options/controls/custom controls)
and assign the User action keys 1-8 to keys that
are free for use in YOUR personal keyboard layout.


Known issues:
- Weapon holding positions and animations are still a bit off
- Several Arma2.rpt errors still come up
- Running predators are warping occasionally
- MP functionality not 100 % guaranteed, some things are spawned twice (Discs etc.)
- and many many more ...

All existing issues are known to the mod maker already, please stay away from PMing those issues.

Changelog:
v0.74 Alpha
- Experimental (!) tree canopy level advancement implemented
for Predator Hunters
- Plasma, EMP and Lasermines added
- Human Bait prop added
- Fixed an error where hit humans would be teleported
to the sea inadvertently
- Added a "Cover in mud" user action for humans that get into shallow water of the sea/rivers.
This action will change the face of the unit to look like covered with mud. There is an issue however to revert back to the original face, because the face type is not stored anywhere. It works in the following way: Once covered, the effect will stay for 3 minutes. In that time predators wont be able to see the human IF he does not move (leave his position noticably). The effect can be reapplied after 5 minutes have passed.
The predator will pick players up as a target, if they move too fast or fire a weapon.
