As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
You'll also need add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click
Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
Steering wheel not turning. Due to my limited knowledge any attempt to fix this seems to break other parts of the addon. Since it is not a very important part I decided to leave it as it.
AI not firing at gunner. This is a bit of an on going issue that me and Cleggy (maker of such fine addons like the Ridgeback, the Mastiffs smaller brother) have been looking at for a while. Originally they did fire at the gunner but they would also prefer to shoot small arms at the vehicle rather than any RPGs they may have. So it was changed to the current setup which means they will engage with any AT but no small arms fire.
