Happy New Year !

Server, mods and missions updated:

– Added Fallujah and Hazar-Kot maps
– Updated ASR (Appendix). Some code that was supposed to be pure server-side and sent to run on clients wasn’t really, fixed that now. Also it enables deploying ropes for ACE fast-roping from any seat in the helicopter (ACE has it limited to pilot only). Note: userconfig script updated.
– Updated ASR MSO code to v1.20.3 on Clafghan. Some fixes and new features, like being able to bring AI to HALO jump with you and integrating the AI Heli Control scripts.

Server updates

December 23, 2011 under A2OA: Dedicated Servers, A2OA: Modding, Arma2:OA

Server updated to 1.60 final, latest ACE hotfixes and added a new map: Hazar-Kot (no missions for it yet, hope to do a quick port from Zargabad MSO to it soon).
The latest 1.60RC beta is still required for Jaylib/ACRE compatibility.

Also released ASR AI 1.13 and Appendix 1.03 on BIS forums.

Updated server to latest beta from SU (87147) which is latest beta but with 1.60 RC2 executables. Also pushed a new test version of ASR AI with performance enhancements and a new AI group merge feature: groups that were reduced to 1 member due to KIA will join another near group of the same faction.
Also reset @ACE and @CBA to latest official versions from the SU network – run verify/repair to make sure you grab these.

ASR AI 1.12

December 5, 2011 under A2OA: Modding, Arma2:OA

Released to the world at last.

Changes since 1.11:

  • Fine-tuned revealed information for better awareness:
    – shots are heard from a greater distance by default, but knowledge gained is now variable, determined from max sound range
    and distance to shooter.
    – target information value (knowledge) is shared between AI groups as is, except a small loss due to random comm equipment issues.
  • AI will randomly search nearby buildings when in combat mode.
  • Fixed: AI was not giving up a weapon with GL even after spending all mags if they still had some GL rounds.
  • AI taking binoculars is now optional (still enabled by default). To disable in userconfig set: asr_ai_sys_airearming_binocs = 0;
  • AI taking sidearms by default (beta fixed issues involving sidearms). To disable in userconfig set: asr_ai_sys_airearming_sidearm = 0;
    Also they will no longer ignore sidearms if that’s the only weapon available even if sidearm rearming is disabled by config.
  • Userconfig settings now uncommented by default for clarity.
  • Separated configs from scripted features into their own pbos.
