    On Saturday, November 1st, we'll be doing a little orientation for our custom missions we'll be playing. Myself and Serena will be telling everyone the basics, since ARMA with ACE is a whole 'nother ball game. make sure you download the modpack here. Make sure you download the Nox_Mod_Pack.zip and the UKF_Packs.zip, and not the Parent_Directory file.

    If anybody needs help installing the mods, let me or Serena know and we'll walk you through the installing/setup process (since it can be sorta kinda confusing). PLAY.WITHSIX HELPS.

    The event begins at 6 PM MST, so convert your times as necessary.

    For those that are impatient, I wrote a little how to up.


    • Download the 7z file located at http://www.nitrousclan.com/nox/NoxPack.7z
    • After downloading the 7z file, extract it. If your extraction program does not recognize it, download 7zip. It is free.
    • Move everything from the Mods folder to your base Arma 2 OA folder.
    • Navigate to the Teamspeak folder and copy the stuff in there to your plugins folder where you installed Teamspeak to.
    • Activate the Task Force Radio plugin in Teamspeak.

    Finally, make a shortcut to ArmA2OA.exe to your desktop.
    • Right click it and click on Properties.
    • In the Target area after the quotes put a space then paste the following there. (See attachment 1)

    -nosplash -mod=@ace;@acex;@acex_ru;@acex_sm;@acex_usnavy;@cba_co;@ukf_ukweps;@ukf_ukweps_ace;@lingorall;@mbgpack;@nox;@tfar_co

    Example: "D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead\ArmA2OA.exe" -nosplash -mod=@ace;@acex;@acex_ru;@acex_sm;@acex_usnavy;@cba_co;@ukf_ukweps;@ukf_ukweps_ace;@lingorall;@mbgpack;@nox;@tfar_co

    Make sure both the A2 shortcut and TS launch as admin. (See attachment 2)
    • You can do this by right clicking both the Arma 2 and Teamspeak shortcut.
    • Click on Properties then selecting the Compatability tab.
    • At the bottom check the check box that says Run this program as an Administrator.
    • Click Ok.

    The next step is to setup ACE Clippi.
    • Open the @ACE folder and navigate through the folders @ACE\clippi\
    • Make a shortcut to aceclippi.exe to your desktop and open it.
    • Make sure the two path options are directed to your Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead folder and the userconfig/ace folder.
    • Click on Change manual options.
    • Make sure your Arma II identity is selected.
    • You can check the check boxes below that to how you wish to run your game.
    • Click on Save. Do not close ACE Clippi. Keep it running.


    If the shortcut does not load the mods properly in Combined Operations mode, go Here and download Arma II Launcher. Once it is installed, open it up.

    • Click on the Launch Options tab in the top.
    • Towards the bottom of the window, you will find an area that reads ArmA II Executable Location and ArmA II - OA Executable Location.
    • Click on Browse and locate both arma2.exe and ArmA2OA.exe in their respective directories.
    Now click on the Addons tab. You should have two sections. Available Addons and Addon Groups.
    • Expand Addons / Mods and then expand Group 1. You can right click to rename it if you wish.
    • Select and drag the following list of mods to Group 1 or whatever you renamed it to.

    Code:
    @ACE
    @ACEX
    @ACEX_PLA
    @ACEX_RU
    @ACEX_SM
    @ACEX_USNavy
    @CBA_CO
    @LINGORALL
    @mbgpal
    @NOX
    @TFAR_CO
    @UKF_UKweps
    @ukf_ukweps_ace
    • After you have done that make sure every square check box is checked.
    • Finally in the bottom right under Game Version click the drop down and select ArmA II - CO.
    • Click Start Game.
