how to include OA/Arma2 islands?

Recommended Posts

b101_uk,

EXCELLENT! Thank you for saving us some space.

However, I could not get it to work unless there was no addons directory in the ToH/arma2 folder before running the .bat. If there was, I got an error running the bat file that said something like "cannot create file if it already exists." That referred to the addons folder in ToH/arma2. If I deleted that (empty) folder, then the .bat ran successfully. The shortcut/link symbol is now shown on the ToH/arma2/addons folder icon. In that folder, all the A2 files are now in there, and there is absolutely no indication that they are links rather than real, full, fat files (nerve-wracking).

I used ToH/@A2 folder instead of ToH/arma2 - I use @ for all my mod folders.

Also, what is the logo_arma2_ca.paa file? Such a file does not exist in my Arma2 installation folder, and I copied in the mod.paa from the BAF folder instead.

Its either from a A2 or A2OA .pbo file, which I canot remember but it just an A2 logo rather than a A2OA or A2OA CO

Also, in your step 16, if you go into ToH/arma2/addons and delete files, the real versions in Arma2/addons will be deleted. Not good at all. If you go to ToH/arma2 and delete the linked addons folder, then the real files are NOT deleted.

yes, it was from the mklink /d method for files rather than folders as in mklink /J, the former is quite painstaking as you have to do each file individually in a path, which i have done as it weeds out all the unwanted files rather than just copying them all like mklink /J dose, what can I say it was early in the morning (am in UK),

if you ok with notepad and the replace txt function you could replace paths on mass that i have in a .txt .bat file and use the mklink /d method which is just like the above but the “AddOns†folder has to be created as it a normal folder, and the link files it creates are not short-cut appended so look just like the real file but in a different place, hence what i said in #16 :rolleyes:

And again, as I mentioned above, the arma2 mod will load even if there is no -mod=arma2 in the command line. Not good.

Yes I don’t have the -mod=arma2 line I just enable/disable it via the in-game expansion list, where it will stay off regardless of how many times you restart the game until you enable it agene in game via the expansion list.

most of the A2 addon files for mklink /D use, use notepad and the replace txt function to change the paths

format

mklink /D “destination file path†“source file pathâ€

-Ziggy-;2062987']OMAC' date=' make a new player profile and select it as your current, exit game, then restart.

Good idea. Thanks.

I don't think the /D is needed, and may create problems. I like the file links better. I didn't bother with the bisign stuff. Is it necessary? It seems to work ok without it.

----------------------------------

Actually a new profile wasn't necessary. b101_uk was correct in pointing out that the Expansions section is key. Just go in there, and select which mod you want, and restart. Pretty slick. Whatever mod you started with last time is loaded again, so if you uncheck the A2 expansion, restart, and quit, the next time you start ToH without a mod in the command line, no mod loads. This still seems a little strange - I never want a mod to load unless it's in the command line. But what the heck.

I want to get my hands on the logo_arma2_ca.paa logo file. It's no big deal obviously, but could someone post it somehow? I don't want to randomly de-pro A2 files to try and find it. Or could someone tell me which pbo contains it?

thank you, b101_uk, for your insight. :clap:

I'm glad the mod issue is solved, but I don't like this change. I am more comfortable with controlling mod use via 'command line'. It does say COMMAND, but now I consider it 'suggested' :D

Exactly. Me too. What the heck caused this to start happening? I never had this issue with A2/OA mods like ACE, ACRE, etc. For some reason ToH isn't responding normally to the A2 mod. I have NEVER messed around in the Expansions section for all of A2 CO/RNF.

But now things are back to being somewhat normal. I have one shortcut with -mod=@A2;@testfm on the desktop and my main, normal shortcut with no mods in the Taskbar. Now, when I run the normal shortcut, no mods load as normal. As long as I use the desktop shortcut for mods, all appears normal for now.

I still think BIS should package up all their OFP/A1/A2 worlds into a ToH expansion pack and charge $$ for it. That could be a source for some quick cash and happy customers. :cool: Those worlds are too awesome to be left behind. But I'm sure BIS has good reasons (A3) to not bother with it, one of them being that they know the modding community will more or less take care of it at no cost.

Well I just bought Combined Operations (even if I already had Arma 2) so I can use maps and give BiS some more cash. Flying Chernarus is a amazing!

sorry guys,

commandline ... launch with -mod=@A2 ...

it all sounds spanish to me, because I'm just a stupid user

starting games by clicking on the programm icon.

Can someone please be so kind to explain in detail "step by step"

what I have to do, when I want to fly the Chernarus-map from the

free Arma2 version in TOH? The videos I have seen from Chernarus are

amazing and I want to fly there too!

thanks much!

So. You need to find these file in your Arma2free folder

buildings.pbo

buildings2.pbo

buildings2_Ind_CementWorks.pbo

Ca.pbo

chernarus.pbo

chernarus_Data.pbo

chernarus_Data_Layers.pbo

misc.pbo

Roads2.pbo

rocks2.pbo

signs2.pbo

structures.pbo

utes.pbo

Put them all here :

xxx\take on helicopters\@A2\AddOns\HERE

Then edit your .exe as here (Or command line on steam)

xxx\take on helicopters\TakeOnH.exe" -mod=@A2

It SHOULD works.. Enjoy ! And share ! :)

fantastic!!!!

Its working now! I only had to change ... -mod=... in the field in Steam,

(not in the TOH.exe)

Now, its defenetley the best and detailed flightsim-environment I have ever seen!

Still wondering, how buys a MFS-X addon for about 25,- Euros, where they

only built 3 houses and a chair ???

Btw. What happens, if I put all files from the Arma-Folder in the TOH-Addon-Folder?

thanks much!

Chernarus is a big island with lots of detail and it does hit ToH quite hard. You can start to see one of the reasons why a big lush island wasn't really feasible in the vanilla game. I think they wanted to have a large island in there to allow plenty of flying space yet not make the minimum spec look like something from an extremem overclockers convention!!

Hi TangoUK,

can you tell me which settings you are using please?

I lowered nearly all settings (Objectdetail, visibility, Texturedetail etc.)

and can get about 20 -25 frames. Its o.k. but where can I optimize?

i7 2600K with (mulitplier 45) GTX 560 Ti and 16 Gig Ram

thanks

3d resolution,1280x1024 32bit

visibility=5000

object visibility=5000

shadow vis=200

traffic vis=150

V mem/tx detail/anisotropic=V high

object detail=high

HDR/Cloud/Shadow/Terrain=normal

Vsync/PIP=off

postprocessing=low

antialiasing=high

i had issues with messed up menu`s,looked like a mix with arma2 so i deleted ui.pbo & uifonts.pbo and that removed the messy menu`s although i still get the error messages,i just click ok and it still works fine :)

I've noticed, that I can leave most settings at highest

except the main- and object-visibility. The I get about 30 frames which

is perfect.

I also have the doubled menue-items.

Cool - will try to delete these files as well.

Its really amazing with all these details! When I look back to MFS:D

When I now could on top add traffic and people to the chernarus map and mybe can also shoot and destroy tanks etc. within that landscape. Wow!

Is there a howto on integrating arma2 islands into ToH? I'd be interested in Vietnam: The Experience and Unsung Vietnam mods.
