Bush Bad Santa 2011 - Replacement Configs


Once again in a desperate effort to muster at least a semblance of Christmas Spirit, I've revamped my Bad Santa pack again for 2011...

Those of you who know what a replacement pack is - this one's no different,. For those who don't, here's the drill...

What are these files?
They're "replacement" or "patch" configs - that basically means they load AFTER the main game - and any other "required" addons, and they patch or alter the configs of those previously loaded game assets... For that reason they should be in a Modfolder that's the LAST one in your launcher or launch shortcut.

What do they do exactly?
Well - in a nutshell, they replace ALL basic OPFORS units with... Bad Santas!
So in ANY mission you play with these configs loaded, instead of the usual Arma 2 Russians, or OA Takistani army guys, you'll see Bad Santas... Spetznaz and special forces are, of course, Very Bad Santas...

And that's it!

Of course - while that might be fun for a while, Santas look a little out of place on Takistan or Chernarus... You might fancy a winter environment instead?

There's two additional folders included in the modfolder...

The "Kuik's Winter Camo" folder contains a config which will swap all of those OPFOR units for Bad Santas... you can then go get: Which will allow you to blow away some Festive Fatboys in a suitably Winter Environment...

Of course - being a member of the CWR2 team, I couldn't omit "Winter Kolgujev" from the equation, so - there's another "CWR2" folder in there as well - this contains TWO configs...
bush_badsanta_cwr2_e - changes all CWR2 OPFORS to the usual Red Bad Santas, plus...
bush_goodsanta_cwr2_w - changes all the BLUFORS units to Blue "Good Santas"

.... this is particularly funny for blue-on-red Santa PvP - especially after a couple of beers ...;)

Once again - with these configs loaded - EVERY CWR2 mission - including all the Winter ones - will feature Bad Santas as enemies...
... you'll need Cold War RearmedĀ² Demo, of course...

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.

How do I use the files?
It's easy - firstly you need to download Santa and Grandfather Frost
*Make sure this addon is also loaded, or - simply drop the files into the BadSanta modfolder too*
Then - put any and all replacement configs of your choice - along with their matching.bisign files, into the "Addons" folder inside the "@Bush_BadSanta_2011" modfolder.
As long as that modfolder is loaded - you'll get Bad Santas... if it isn't - you won't...

Don't Worry! - No game files are changed at all - it's purely a runtime patch.

Included .pbo files:

Any problems, report 'em here.
Server key and V2 Signatures included - should work perfectly in MP as a purely clientside addon.
