Taliban pack
by
The Lost Brothers Mod


Description:
This Taliban pack is a side project from The Lost Brothers Mod as we got tired of waiting around for someone else to make them. If anyone is serious about improving them or adding additional models to the pack, please contact me.

This pack includes:
    1. Taliban soldiers, Taliban vehicles, & Taliban static weapons.
    2. 80's Mujahadin soldiers (under independent) 80's Mujahadin vehicles, & 80's Mujahadin static weapons.
    3. Afghan National Army soldiers, and an Afghan National Army pickup with DShK.
    4. American Covert Operations units
    5. Custom Weapons Pack (Ak's, Lee-Enfield rifle, SPG-9, B-10)
The Taliban and Mujahadin insurgents essentially represent Pashtun tribesman most commonly found in Waziristan, Pakistan and Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan. Noted are their puffy pants and ethnic vests and whatever you call the front and back leg/waist covers commonly worn by many Pashtun. Headgear includes the traditional Pashtun cap, Persian style turbans, and Arab shamagh covering the entire face. The face models also have been highly modified to resemble faces of that region. This was mainly done by modifying the nose and chin of the face models.

Note-
ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE EXTENDED EVENT HANDLER PBO INSTALLED, the RPG, B-10, and SA-7 guys will yell stuff in Arabic when they fire their RPG or SA-7 weapons. This will eventually be changed to the Pashtun language if I can find some good recordings (aside from the ever-popular "ALLAH'U AKBAR!" cry). (There now a couple of Pashto yells in the sounds).


Installation:
Extract to your Arma\Addons main folder or as we always recommend use one of the modfolder methods to launch it, check our FAQ to see how to do it.

Note:
To Install: remove "Arabic_Sounds.pbo" from your addons (or mod/addons) folder if you had the first version (1.2) installed. Arabic_addons.pbo is no longer needed and it will cause conflicts.


Included files:
lobo_taliban.pbo
loboweaponstaliban.pbo


Usage with ACE mod:
Do the following steps to use this addon with the ACE mod.
Go to yourArmA/Dta/ACE folder and open the file called: ace_clientside_config.hpp
Go down to the section that says something like:
_

Hide BIS classes: set "ACE_SCOPE_SHOW_BIS" to "visible"

NOTE: it's 2x a underline ( _ ) before "hidden" or "visible"
*/
#define visible 2
#define ACE_SCOPE_SHOW_BIS _hidden

Change the last line to:
#define ACE_SCOPE_SHOW_BIS __visible


Known issues:
Old missions using the last Taliban pack will have to have their .sqm files manually edited as some class names were changed. To get the infantry working in the mission simply remove "Test_Soldat" from the list of required addons in your mission. If you used the pickup trucks, that is a little more complicated. You need to remove the old names, then load the mission again. The trucks will be invisible on the mission editor so just try to delete all over the general area where they were at.
I greatly apologize for that, but the class names were messed up and really needed to be changed.
