Yea placing it on the map right by the airfield so I can get it and hop in my plane. Tried playing with it some more looked through the whole magic box found a bunch of backpakcs but no chutes. The sunglasses and gas masks I picked up wouldn't equip on me(visible) if their suppose to either. Starting to sound like I have a install error.
like i said did you configure your unser config thats the only reason why it is not there, i beleave that Ace II made it possible to support Steam versions of the game. I advice you to read a little about Ace II and how to install it on your version, this is the only way to figure stuff out.
Arma II is one of the best games based on RL mil sims the producer made it so that the community could make "close" to what ever the gamer want. Basicly if you want a baby in there crying out load for momy's breasts and you have the creativety to make a 3D model and some scripting skills you can make it happen.
to use the mods it is in fact not that diffucult so i gave you the links above, what i mean is we can advice you whatever you ask us but getting a little here and there is not going to help. The first thing needed is to install correctly before you try to use the futures of the mod.
the point is the mod is not installed correctly so you can try what you want it will not work so go to:
MODFOLDER GUIDE FOR STEAM
you have 2 options or you install it with SIX UPDATER (it will auto dedect your arma installation and it will pre difine your ACE II dependant on what version of ARMA II you have it will also place a userconfig aotomaticly in the main ARMA II directory and a shortcut to launch the game with the mod
) or you install the stable version, you can get that on this site on the ARMA II OA addons section and then you go download the ACE II 1.05 stable version, bear in mind that if you have the OA stand allone you need a other CBA // dont launch the mod with @CBA and @CBA_OA!
Also dont install the pbo's in your main addon folder make sure you install every mod seperate with a @ in front of it, you also need to edit your launcher so the mods will load up for steam i will give you that link!
after isntalling correctly you need to edit your userconfig file in your main ARMA II directory "if you download the stable version you will need to place that folder in your main ARMA II directory out of the ACE II modfolder
" or the shutes, masks bandanas etc all the extra stuff will not show up and non usable for you if you dont edit it.
simple explanation is download all of the ace II contents on the download section unzip the files place the files in your main ARMA II directory " it should be called @ACE.
After that open the mod folders and look for the userconfig folder cut it place it also in your main ARMA II directory, when you have don that open the userconfig, open the client side in there, scrol up a couple of posts here and edit the file like the info gives you here. Save it launch your game and enjoy!!
the bothem line is go read
your head will not explode from it
ps: if you cant figure it out i'm willing to give you my skype and we can do a step by step guide, but really use this as a last resort, i want you to understand how it generaly works otherwise you will have problems in the future if you don't know how
