Task Force Arrowhead Radio

by
[TF]Nkey


Description:
Pleased to present you new radio mod for Arma 3 - Task Force Radio. It connects you game to TeamSpeak (similar to ACRE).
It is totally new product, open source, used for PvP and COOP games with more than 100 players.


Features:
  • Simple to install and use, stable
  • Support for radio and direct speech (3D)
  • Ability to change direct speech volume
  • You able to hear radio and direct voice simultaneously (if player is close enough)
  • No map changes are required (ItemRadio will be replaced by personal radio, group leaders will get long range radio, a lot of vehicles have inbuilt radio)
  • 3 rifleman radios (one for each faction)
  • 3 personal radios (one for each faction)
  • 3 long range radios (one for each faction, backpacks)
  • 3 airborne radios (one for each faction)
  • Multiband radios
  • Underwater transceiver interface for divers
  • Simulation of underwater speech and radio communications (you can't use radio underwater, you can only mumble underwater, you may use Underwater transceiver, you able to use long range radio in submarine if part of antenna is still under the water surface)
  • Different audio effect for long-range and personal radios
  • Support for radio interference (because of distance)
  • Vehicles are classified into open and closed (isolated). If you are in an isolated vehicle, you will not hear voices from outside (and vice versa). However, if you turn out of the vehicle, you will hear voices both from inside and outside.
  • Ability to switch radio volume
  • Ability to use more than one radio
  • Spectator mode for dead players
  • Two modes - for PvP and for COOP
  • Automatic TS channel switch on game start
  • Ability to pick up radios with all settings saved
  • By default, radios of each faction use their own encryption codes, so you will not hear enemy talks, even setting the enemy’s frequency. To listen to the enemy’s net (and talk on the air) - it’s necessary by any means to capture an enemy radio station.
  • Ability to switch stereo channel for radio
  • Radio interference according to ground surface
  • API
  • Etc, etc, etc.

Installation:
Important:
You need to update everything: server, keys, addon, plugins, sound files, userconfig and possible CBA (if you use old version). It is better to delete old version before.
Not compatible with previous version!

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
