        It is and i won't advice you to join at a server with a older version....
        There is a function in the mod which should alarm you/others that there is a version miss-match.

          Yeah, make sure you have the correct version or this is no love.... You will be able to join and stuff but it seems to hang you up after you go to the mission briefing.

            Make sure to check out the weapon rest feature, that's something that has been needed in ArmA/OFP for awhile, and finally has been realized. :)

              Re: ACE Mod 1.01 Patch released

              I've always enjoyed weapon rest in Red Orchestra. Always wondered why it wasn't in ArmA. Great addition!

              Does it automatically rest on objects or do you have to "deploy it"?

                You use a key to deploy - IIRC the default is shift-space, but you can change that by editing the key config file in dta/ACE/

                  Mmm, I'm out of it today. Made a topic in another part of the forums ... whoops.

                  Lots of bug fixes on the list, looks good!

                    Wow, great stuff here!

                    I am just wondering, because I couldn't find anything in the changelog: Could anyone find something about the medical equipment problems (i.e. it's not used up after usage, strange errors when picking up other gear etc.)?

                      Wow, ACE just keeps giving and giving! The weapon rest feature alone is a huge boon for entrenched positions.

                        Is it working on every weapons?

                          Yes it does work for every weapon but not for everywhere

                            Did anyone else get an NSIS error when trying to install this? I downloaded from the A.C.E Server directly, and had no issues with connectivity while downloading.

                            I use firefox, and dont have nvidia or windows firewalls.
