CBA: Community Base Addons for A2, OA and CO

Recommended Posts

Hi !

I started Arma OA normal not as beta. that was the problem. But i dont use beta so i copy the files to the addon directory of OA and dont get an error message again. that works for me ;)

Its true that in many cases the description beta is synonymous with incomplete features, bugs and instability.

But with BIS it is quite the opposite.

Basically the last officialy patch was over a year ago and since then there have been scores of beta patches.

Having extensively tested it, I highly recommend the latest beta.

They contain many fixes and optimisations (see here).

Also, they're more stable than the last official patch.

Full details here:

That's odd.

What are the specs of your PC and what settings (video>advanced) do you use?

Here is a little guide to getting the game running smoothly whilst making it look as good as possible:

Hi !

These are my settings:

Visibility: 3500m

Interface: 100%

3D res: 100% (1920 x 1080)

Tex: Very High or High

Vid mem: Default

Anisotropic: Very High

Antialiasing: disabled (i normally never use AA in games)

Terrain: Very low

Objects: Low

Shadows: Low or High

HDR: Very High

Post-proc: Off

V-Sync: Disabled

Systemspecs:

Win7 64bit Home Premium

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @3,6Hz

AMD XFX 7870

IDE HDD 500GB

8 GB Ram

As i said i never had problems with the standardgame only with the beta. And i have no problem in other games. But...i use SweetFX for Arma. Maybe that cause problems with the beta ? ;)

maxx2504 try other settings eg: Texture on "Normal" , Terrain on "Normal" ; Object details on "Very High" ; Shadows on "High" (= GPU does the job) ; HDR on "Normal". Try first without any addons/mods and don't put them into your default A2OA "AddOns" folder!! Read and follow the description in the readme.... there is a reason why people spend their 'time, sweat and tears' to write them down.

Hi Railgunner !

I have no problem with that. I will test those settings in beta. The problem is...it looks bad with those settings. I still dont dont why i should play with the beta. OA normal runs good .. ;)

That's quite a fast system but you're also running a high View Distance, so you still need to be smart.

So you here are a few tips that will keep your game looking good and running smooth

1. Increase Texture Quality to Very High (your 7870's 2GB VRAM is sufficient)

2. Increase Terrain to Normal

3. Increase Shadows from Low to High (thereby off-loading computation from CPU to GPU)

4. Try disabling SweetFX

5. Try the latest beta (I don't know when you tried the last beta by there have been some significant improvements over the past year)

6. Save up for an SSD - a half-decent (Samsung 840) will set you back €90 for a 120/128GB.

So I downloaded the most recent CBA for Arma2 Combined operations, I have currently the BAF,PMC,and ACR dlc's as well, when I installed CBA using the mod folder installation, ACR failed to show up.

So Then I added ACR as a mod itself in the launch parameters, however I keep getting an error message saying " Addon cba_xeh_oa requires CA_CommunityConfigurationProject_E" I don't know what to do at this point please help.

I also run the normal game and not arrowhead beta.

@Lorprimate - if you search for that you'll get this:

The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search:

CA_CommunityConfigurationProject_E

You *really* need to chill out and refrain from posting things like this - soo sorry your day is ruined because community members not as saavy as you are asking questions. Chill out dude... go get yerself a cold one!

Very basic question here. If I do something like this:

_EHkilledIdx = player addEventHandler ["killed", {_this exec "playerKilled.sqs"}]

Will that break something in CBA (or interfere in any way)?

TIA.

So I've had this error for quite some time when I try to launch Arma 2 or OA with Steam. I can use Six Launcher, but I'd just like to get to the bottom if this issue. Thanks.

Yep :) NP :) Glad it turned out well!

Hi,

@CBA_CO requires an OA beta higher than build 100697.

I use Six-Updater (because PlayW/Six is annoying and broke even worse) . . . I see this error all the time and just click past it. . . I have a question, How do you expect people who aren't programmers to use this thing? I use it, until right now today because of the ABSOLUTE frustration and inability to make it do the SAME THING TWICE. I have been trying for the last MONTH to get an answer as to why I can not seem to tweek this thing to accept, install and use CBA_CO. It is ABSOLUTELY INFURIATING when I do what is written or suggested and get nada or even worse get completely different results EVERY TIME!.

So, how do I (understanding that I don't control this stupid thing for nothin and every time I try it jacks up even more) get CBA_CO to load and WORK, without having to uninstall / reinstall dance under a blue moon on the seventh sunday of the 22nd month of the geek calendar. . . .

How do I get this error listed above to stop. . . as I seem to have the proper up to date and functioning game. . . ?

Ok, so as the title says, every time i try to use the Community based addons, addon for Arma 2 OA, i get this error cba_xeh_oa needs required addon CA community configurations project E. and then it starts the game, but as soon as it gets to the loading screen, i get another error, 'include file userconfig\asp\asp_config.hpp not found. i know you probably think im crazy for not playing online. but im deployed to afghanistan and this game is all i got to pass the time. and internet is no where near good enough to even attempt to play online. so i just find new mods and try em out. making my own missions. im also kind of a noob to the game so if someone has an answer for me it would be greatly appreciated if it is specific, and detailed. thank you

Hi,

Welcome to the forum, please try to search for mod threads. I have merged your thread with the CBA thread so that your question will get answered better.

Thanks RK

so i recently downloaded the latest version of CBA, never having used it before, to get some other mods that require it. i kept getting some error popups like requires community project e, or something like that, then requires ui helper, but i fixed all of that. so now when i try to load the game, ill get to the main menu, and another error will pop up on my screen. something along the lines of missing user_config\asp\asp_config.hpp. ive googled it and searched the forums but i didnt seem to find any fixes for the error. im not trying to play MP, or anything, just simply use the mission editor. i am also using the Steam version of the game.

So...Whenever I boot up Arma 3 and get into the menu, it always asked me to bind some keys to User action under custom controls. In which it asks to bind controls to either User action 1-4 which are missing.

Then when I start up any singleplayer game give 12 seconds every time and it comes up with mission complete without me doing anything, it also happens when I'm in the editor and I preview something after 12 seconds that screen comes up and takes me back to the editor screen.

If someone can help that would be very helpful, Thanks.

I don't have OA, neither CO, just the Original A2, It won't work for me? because I tried, It told me that if I want to install ACE I need CBA, I downloaded and install the both, it looks like ACE working, it gives me the Main Menu Icon and Log, but it doesn't take effect when you play, You can't use the Menu that helps you use items and stuff, you don't get deaf when heavily shooting and etc...

Does the OP still apply since the Beta is now obsolete? I tried out running just the @CBA_CO folder with main final build CO launched through OA (not the beta) and ACRE for a few minutes and it seemed to work fine, though it wasn't very extensive testing.

After installing the addon, I get this warning.   CA content doesn't seem to load.  I'm using beta of OA and A2

Warning Message: Script CA\Warfare2\Scripts\Server\Construction\Construction_any.sqf not found

Doesn't matter if I removed the addon, it still gives me the error.  Fresh install clears it. 

 

Edit found a mission typo that caused it.
