  • Playing other servers with ACE

    Here we go...I want to play multiple servers that use ace but also have their own mods. Ace is not updated the same on every server thus producing a mod folder dilemma,.. is there any solution for this besides partitioning a drive or renaming ACE mod folders every time I want to play on a different server?

    Thanks ahead of time,

    Splint,

    What you describe is actually quite easy! Since Tactical Gamer stores all of the mod files inside a directory labeled @TG, you can simply create a new subdirectory (say, arma\otherServer) where all of the necessary files go for whatever other server(s) you want to play on. The catch? You'll have to do the drag-and-drop yourself if these other servers don't update through Yoma.

    If you're lucky, they've been using YIS too, which means all you have to do is change the "download to..." option when you're comparing mod values to a server to a subdirectory, and avoid overwriting any of the files you want to keep separate for TG. If you need further advice, catch me on Teamspeak sometime or shoot me a PM, and I'll help you out.

      Another easy solution (that I use) when updating through Yoma is simply using "Kelly's Heroes" server (which should be one of those included with Yoma) to keep my ACE up-to-date, also thanks to the fact that our admins decided to combine all mods currently in use (ACE included) in a single folder.
      That way, when you play on TG you use the @TG command line, while when you want to play on other servers you can use the usual @ACE;@ACE_SM and so forth. ;)

        Heres the auto config url for Kelly's: http://www.kellys-heroes.eu/updater/...mA2ACE-Repo.7z

        Copy and paste that and it should give you all the server information/ autoconfig section and it should give you all the info needed for downloading.

          Thanks CFoxtrot.
          There is one important thing I forgot to add: Kelly's Heroes utilises a more up-to-date ACE_clientside_config file, as such you will have to copy/paste/edit it every time you switch from TG to other servers, otherwise things like the Goggles system might not work properly (and if you are a Machinegunner, that's going to hurt :p ).

              Thanks Browna, the new clientside_config includes a new feature: "DRAMATIC CAMERA MOVEMENT" when you exit a vehicle :D

              Still, every time KH updates their ACE, it will still be necessary to copy/paste/edit the file to avoid having any conflict with the userconfig in the TG and the regular ACE folder (having an outdated clientside_config file).

                Courtesy of Dslyecxi. I've got a feeling it might be what's causing people to randomly get ejected from vehicles when changing seats, though. I can't see why it would do that looking at that code, but it's started happening since we got the ACE version with that in it.

                edit: VVV I stand corrected. I had never seen it happen frequently before and there seemed to be a lot more people falling from choppers recently. I guess it was just a coincidence.

                  It's been like that since OFP 1.0.

                  It's a fact of the engine, if you attempt to change seats while the vehicle is moving, there is a chance you will fall out.

                    For the record, the camera movement on exit is designed for situational awareness, not sh*ts & giggles.

                        Mine didn't have to be updated. Am I just special or did I do something wrong(right)? It seemed to work correctly in SP editor.
