Appendix 1.0.4 beta

February 26, 2012 under A2OA: Dedicated Servers, A2OA: Modding, Arma2:OA

New Appendix up on server. No new fancy features, but a reworked userconfig format, with a few new options, tested to behave properly with or without ACE and server-side (except sys_gear which needs a human team leader running the mod to bring the crates to his position).

Also updated the signatures for ASR AI with it’s own key.

Testing new ASR AI

February 17, 2012 under A2OA: Dedicated Servers, A2OA: Modding, Arma2:OA

Tweaking is now done based on values same or very close to default ones (as in vanilla, just installed game).

For difficulty options on the server, this means values in username.Arma2OAProfile:

These are the same for all levels:

skillFriendly=1;
precisionFriendly=1;

then

recruit:

skillEnemy=0.55;
precisionEnemy=0.3;
regular:

skillEnemy=0.7;
precisionEnemy=0.5;

veteran:

skillEnemy=0.9;
precisionEnemy=0.75;

expert:

skillEnemy=1;
precisionEnemy=1;

Up and configured like that on the server.

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.

The latest 1.60RC beta is still required for Jaylib/ACRE compatibility.
