[S.o.E] Team - Sons of Exiled

LEA is a standalone application with goal to simplify the customisation of player's loadout and mission edition. The software uses a full graphical interface and maximum automatised processes to help mission-makers and team players waste as less as possible time in editing loadouts. To do so, LEA has the capability to read and rewrite mission.sqm as well as generate SQF scripts into ArmA 2 mission. The software is provided with @LEA addon for players to make their loadout at mission start-up with LEA whatever the mission running on server. LEA can also help ArmA 2 team play thanks to its capability to easily share user profiles and missions through FTP.

LEA has been developed foremost to run with ACE 2 for OA/CO. However LEA can be used without ACE 2 (see FAQ).

LEA for Players:
- Creation of an unlimited number of profiles see applicable ingame, at mission start. see

Q. How to use LEA without ACE 2?
R. In the Help menu select Manage Addons then uncheck ACE.

LEA has been developed in Java language, which allows software to be executed on most of the OS such as Windows or Linux, having graphic interface.

Installation could be done manually or automatically (Windows users only).
