  • ECS mod video...

    Thanks to Rowdied for letting me (us) know about this excellent mod.

    Thanks to the mod design team lead by Matt Rochelle.

    I was/am a big fan of the ECP mod made for OFP, that along with the excellent FFUR mods gave alot of new life in that game for me... and I was excited to here about this new ECS (Enhanced Configuration System) mod for Armed Assault...

    I tested it on a couple of default missions, and a quick editor mission, and very impressed... Be advise I did notice a drop of 5 to 10 FPS in the game. Which ain't no big deal to me since I get 50 to 60 FPS anyway, just hurts a little when recording with fraps... but people with low end machines already may have a problem. Just FYI.

    you can get the mod from:
    http://www.armedassault.info/

    Along with alot more info on what exactly this mod contains.

    It comes with it's own exe install, and creates it's own shortcut...so you can choose to use it or not based on your shortcut, read the Read Me for more info...

    Here is a quick video I put together showing some of the lights and sounds, as I like to call them, of the mod... I had to play this quick, and get it together quick, since I'm now 30 mins late for work, lol... so it is still uploading in the background...

    IT SHOULD BE FULLY UPLOADED BY 2230 HOURS (EASTERN TIME ZONE)

    I have to leave for work... ASAP... enjoy...

    Thx again to the mod team...when I find out who it was, I'll give proper credit.

    What does it do exactly? they only explain how to install it but give no details other than that.

        I DL'd the HD version which only had an .exe and a setup.txt in it. I'll install and see. My FPS is pretty low... we'll see how bad it'll hurt my eyes

              some cool things to look for... love this mod, all except for the aggressive, more deadly AI... the stock was already way over the top on that, IMO...

              This on the other forum, some fun stuff to look for.

              "some items you may or may not know about in E.C.S.

              each "zone" will ahve its own ambience (go to the top of a mountain. and listen)

              bistros will have music. phones ringing
              gas stations wil have a "DING!" WHEN YOU ROLL THRU THEM.

              if YOU cath fire ..you MUST DROP AND ROLL to sometimes put it out. depending on the severity you cant. and you die.

              if you KNOW the enemy is nearby, your heart rate will get louder, and increase the closer he is. (only if you "know" there is a contact nearby).. if your character never sees a "contact" hidng in a bush, your heart rate will not go up. but if you see him go into the bush, and you walk up..your heartrate will increase.

              if you get shot, you will eventually blead to death. unless you (limited in degree, and amount of times) heal yourself.

              often when out of ammo/re-arming your character will say "gotta reload, cover me"

              the AI talk to themselves, whistle, and chitchat. and it is all "normal" sounding you dont get a phrase that sound out of place with others.

              ALL electical power stations hum. houses have musci ambience. kitchen sounds..etc.

              woods are much more ambient.

              guns jam. to fix you have to reload...sometimes you have to reload MULTIPLE TIMES!!! to unjam:)]

              volumetric fog/ clouds/rain.

              blood spatter on screen. blood spatter on ground.

              AI is very agressive and is better than stock.

              ROCKETS have new explosions

              there are many MANY little things that set the mood for E.C.S.

              you just have to pay attention to the tiny little details to notice, but if you go without it, and play "normal" you miss out on a lot all of a sudden"

                This looks rather basic. I wonder if anyone will remember this once SLX or ACE are out.

                  ya that was needed...

                  Was wondering how long it would take you to come in and put others work down...since it's not your teams work.

                    Welcome to the internet, where other people have opinions as well! Please do continue to get grouchy about it, it puts you in such a wonderful light. :icon14:

                    For the record, I am not involved in SLX at all. I've played it and it's clear that it has a much more impressive feature set than ECS. I don't think you'll hear much about ECS once SLX is public, but I guess you'll have to wait and see to understand exactly why that is.

                        Gun jams... bleh. Clean your weapon properly, and make sure the magazines you're using aren't ancient pieces of trash (which is usually the cause of the M16/M4's malfunction, in my experience). It doesn't happen often enough to warrant simulating it in a game.

                            Will these mods (ecs, slx and ace) have some issues with mods like arma effects/tracer/sound mods?

                              Jex AFAIK ACE will have new sounds and tracers, i think even the 6th Sense, but i am not 100% on this. ACE will have a ton more features on top of the sound and tracers. SLX from what I played had different tracers and sounds, not sure on anything else. ECS I am completely lost on, I have no Idea about the features within this.

                              Dsylexci would know more about ACE then I, I am just going off posts and chat in IRC.
