  • XAM 1.3 English MOD is OUT!!

    Ok Folks ..Check page 1 of Armaholic for the Post...but in the last 24 hours the Xtreme Arma Mod 1.3 was released ..the English version..
    It's a small 1.7 Gig (GIG!) download that uncompresses into a small 3+ GIG folder in your Arma DIR.. it's a simple EXE install (very professional!)..

    Now to see what happens when I start it.. I assume eliminate all other startup mods for this one since it has all but the kitchen sink (thats in 1.4).

    thanks for the heads up peardog, the trailers for it look SWEET! I really like the ability to use the 3rd person, the new explosions looked immaculant and nice to see some new camo. Curious though as to how to toggle between the first and third person view. At any rate, I am starting the Dl and looks like its gonna take a couple hours in which my lack of patience is gonna kill me lol. sounds to me like you already have it ready to go so please post a review and also if you figure out how the 3rd person works. Hopefully its in the readme

      I know the First/third is disabled on the TG servers. (it's a server side setting).. But in Single player it should be ok...

        The new camo is sweet! Particularly fond of the new sniper gear (no surprise there) and ambient sounds. Some v1.3 MP action would be grand... :D

            More details! I've seen the vids for this mod, but I really didn't see anything that ground breaking....am I missing something?

                I think what was done here can be done with MULTIPLE MODS... BUT MAYBE, just MAYBE ..this ONE mod will be the one to allow lots of different things...
                Maybe this MOD will be the one that TG can latch onto as an Official mod..
                The only issue I would have is that the versions be PATCHABLE.. I don't want version 1.4 to be a 1.7 gig download.. ;-) Maybe a few hundred meg patch would work.. ..

                  agreed!! I see a lot of potential here. Even has the new map markers, would be nice if everyone got XAM plus you have it all in one mod as appose to having to DL and run individual mods. Not to mention the new explosions look sweet!

                    There are a lot of good things about this mod, but I like to tweak ArmA to my own preference. Single mods do this, change the sound, the explosions etc, but with a TC you have to conform to some things you may not like.

                    That said, I haven't really played this enough to properly know if I like it or not.

                        YES!!!!! Some things on it though like the Air strikes and 3rd person view won't be able to use tilll the server changes to it.

                          Thanks.
                          Another question then: is it acceptable to have this mod installed when playing TvT? Does it give any unfair advantage?

                            Heh..I hope so.. ;-) ... But the only think I can think of is possibly something like the 6thsense squad markers.. which show Friendly squad leaders.. If that's it then I think it's ok... But I haven't seen anything so far... This weekend I will beat it up a bit..

                              Anyone see a RADIO mod out there (Client Side) that works like the XAM Mod...?? First off.. This mod includes 10 Songs that were picked EXTREMELY well for the subject matter..
                              I mean... Hanz Zimmers "Minstrel Boy"...a blackhawk..flying at Sunset over the northern mountains... As close to a Religious experience as you can get with a video game... Phenomenal..!!
                              (I am suprised they haven't been sued by the RIAA yet tho!! 10 full OGG's)
