Download disabled, it seems this addon contains a BF2 sound and its illegal to use and spread files imported from other games!
We will wait with enabling the download again until we cen get a legal addon!

The first thing to do is to backup the packages we will be editing. To do this, open cpbo.exe and let it associate pbo files with it. Now go to "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\AddOns" and create a new zip file and name it "backup". Hold CTRL and then click on "sounds.pbo" & "weapons.pbo" then drag the two files into the newly created zip file so they are zipped up nice and safe for the future or in the very unlikely event that you prefer Bohemia's shoddy half-arsed attempt on the sound in this magnificent game.
Now right click on "sounds.pbo" and choose "extract". Do the same for "weapons.pbo".
Now extract "1.zip" into "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\AddOns\weapons\Data\Sound" folder and then extract "2.zip" into "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\AddOns\weapons\sound" and finally, extract "3.zip" into "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\AddOns\sounds"
Once all 3 parts of my soundpack have been installed, you need to now re-pack the pbo's so the game engine can use the new sounds. Just go to "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\AddOns" again, and right-click the folder "sounds" and choose "Create PBO" and answer YES to the overwrite prompt. Do the same for the folder "weapons" too.
Compatability & Misc:
It should be fine with both versions of ArmA and with or without the 1.01 patch.
I'm quite sure this soundpack will be okay with any future patch releases because all the sounds are named the same. Although if the patch contains any sound improvements (which it bloody well needs to) then just replace my soundpack with the original pbo's you backed up before you apply the patch. I will release a compatible version of the soundpack shortly after.
