  • Just got ARMA2/OA

    And I must say its a definite learning experience from regular BF2:PR. I think I've got everything working thanks to |TG-IRRp|Warrior/|TG-69th|Gijoe.

    Hopefully some more TGU classes will be happening this next week I can get in on, but its more just getting the game figured out I guess.

    Question regarding Addons, I have a skin setup I want to use (Air Force PJs/Multicam) but am trying to figure out how to use it ingame. Warrior said i should be sure to not make it something server side so you don't all download it, but how indeed do I install it and click the specific skin I want (Its got about ...50+ skin options in the pack - link included: http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=7520)

    All of those skins require some sort of addon which the community would need to download in order for you to use. Basically, the way skins work in Arma is dependent on you Side (BLUFOR, OPFOR, etc.) your Faction (USMC, US Army, etc.), and your Class (Rifleman, Grenadier, etc.). By the mission makers choice you are given whatever skin is set to your slot in the mission.

    Where we get around individuality is with custom faces. You can download a pack which unlocks some default faces included in your game. The pack is linked below. All you need to do is download it and follow the instructions with the mod to install.

      You will not be able to use those, as those are server side + client side models. The only reskins that you can use are the replacement packs which are client side only. There are two full sections on armaholic filled with replacement packs. Be careful when choosing your replacement packs though because replacement packs will replace all soldiers of one faction. Thus, you will no longer be able to see the old faction. EX: If you get a desert USMC replacement pack, then whenever a mission uses US Army soldiers, you will see desert Marines.

                    welcome to TG ARMA!....my advice with addons and everything else ARMA is to keep it as simple as possible. It'll make your head spin keeping up with it all but if you keep it relatively simple it'll be a lot easier in the long run. I run Vanilla with no addons and the current ACE d/l through TG Yoma. Anyways welcome aboard.
