After all, ArmA is still a game and we shouldn't take things too serious from time to time ...
So we thought it was a good idea to give the player the opportunity to play a soundfile from a selection
of various funny movie quotes, music snippets, classic game sounds etc. over the network which will
be heard by every other player in the game. You can select the sound to be played by pressing and
holding LCtrl+LShift and the Numpad keys in the visual interface at the top of the screen. Many of
the available sound samples are German, so is their description in the interface. In total there are 81
sounds to select from, including a bunch of famous movie quotes from our childhood's heroes
Bud Spencer and Terence Hill.
- Plays sound samples over network by pressing LCtrl+LShift
- visual interface
- 81 sounds to select from
- player who played the sound is shown in global sidechat
- mod is to be run client-side only
The mod needs to be installed only on client side and is completely optional. The server only needs to have the key installed. Players not running the mod will see a sidechat message, but hear no sound.
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 can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.
You'll also need to 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
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods
You can select the sound to be played by pressing and
holding LCtrl+LShift and the Numpad keys in the visual interface at the top of the screen.
- missing chat message in very few missions for unknown reasons
- usage on laptops without numpad unclear: unable to test
- players abusing the mod for audio spamming: feel free to use the in-game Kick or Ban Buttons...
