Greetings all,
I'm new to to the ArmA and overwhelmed by the game play and the amount of quality addons available.

But I'm running into a problem. I'm wanting to use several of the A.C.E. missions. But when I went to DL the required addons, Avgani Iraq & Afghan Village by Opteryx was "removed as requested by the author".

Is there another addon I can get that has this included? Am I too late to ever be able to use missions that require this addon?

Can someone put me in contact with Opteryx? I'm sure he has his reasons to want the DL removed.

I just want to be able to use the other missions and addons where his stuff is required.

Any help appreciated.

The author has requested his files to be removed. Check the download page for a link to the BI forums where he originally released his files and try to sent him a PM there. Or here on Armaholic.
I just dont have any idea wether the author even still visits any ArmA website.

Thanks Foxhound,
I went to BI and Opteryx has been suspended. I "searched" several pages think I found a copy of the down load.

As I said ,I'm a Noob. found this line in the readme "Only ArmA updated to 1.14 patch and opx* addons. QG is NOT required".

OK, I'm updated to 1.14.Does opx* simply mean the addons in this zip?(...and what is QG?)

Thanks for you reply Foxhound, I may get to play the A.C.E. missions yet!

Queen's Gambit is the official Expansion released for ArmA.

opx* probably means the files inside the package, in our page they are listed as:

avgani.pbo
afghan_village.pbo
opxbuildings.pbo
opxmisc.pbo
opxplants.pbo
opxroads.pbo
