Arma 2 Mumble Plugin

by
Polymath

Description:
Me and my buddys have been using a positional plugin for mumble that I made a while ago.
After stumbling into few threads here such as these:
- Mumble compatible with ArmA2?
An appeal for help - show BIS what VON means to you

I decided I should share my plugin, it's Christmas season afterall.

Installation:
Copy "ArmA2.dll" to your Mumble Plugins folder:
"X:\Your_Program_Files\Mumble\plugins"

Copy "X3DAudio1_6.dll" to the same location where ArmA2 executable resides:
"X:\Your_Program_Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\Expansion\beta"
Or for those not using beta patch:
"X:\Your_Program_Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2"

Notes:
No context support, too lazy.
Should work with all versions of Arma 2.
If using SixUpdater or DayZ Commander to update the game you will need to recopy X3DAudio1_6.dll.
Positional audio starts working as soon as a map is loaded, even at the start menu unless using a "-world=empty" start command.
Position coordinates in Arma2 are based on the camera and not the avatar so if your using 3rd person view... It gets funky.
Also as you might have noticed just by playing the game the accuracy on 3D audio leaves a lot to be desired so don't expect - pinpoint accuracy.
Surround sound users may notice better audio localization due to the proxy .dll actually linking to X3DAudio1_7.dll version.
