  • ACE Goggles Guide (with pictures!)

    Excellent visual guide.

    The technical side, to the best of my understanding, for those who were wondering:

    The reason ACE2 doesn't automatically stick stuff in your config is to avoid overwriting custom configurations you might have before updating.

    The reason you need to add your identity to userconfig is because gas masks, earplugs (and no, those are not passive) and so on are headgear, and ACE2 needs to access your "identity" (ArmA2 profile) to show a mask/earplug model on your head ingame. BIS doesn't provide addons with any way of grabbing the current identity automatically (probably for good reasons), so you need to input it manually. This is the same thing as when you chose the glasses for your soldier in vanilla ArmA 2.

          ...

          It still needed?

          I thought that they fixed it by letting us use the goggles and stuff by the Action Menu.

            You don't get those actions unless you do the steps above :)

                Didn't they change it? I believe that is the old version.

                  Nope pretty sure its still this way. Like cctoide said it has to do with some fundamental constraints of ArmA 2 so I don't think it will change any time soon. Anyway I know this method works for me.

                      I believe the new version is you just add your player name, none of the other stuff is needed. you are showing the original version, which for me was replaced in one of the ace updates... but your players name is still needed in both places.
                      a very good visual, thanks falcon

                        Correct, only the name should be there, not that other stuff. So ONLY playername out of that block.

                              So everyone take note, now that we have a new mission name standard you wont know when we are playing a falcon mission, therefore you wont know if/when you will be gassed.....so....get your gear ready to rock!
