Really love the US units, can't wait for the upcoming patch mid November, hope there will be a fix for sounds (vehicles) and maybe in the future some animations for steering wheels and such. Been playing this for quite some months now and it's just stunning. Would be awesome if you guys could port the Waffen-SS or the Sturmtroopers units wich are using the the HBT Dot camo instead of the Splinter camouflage.

Why i ask this , i´d like to see the most common weapons in the game .

If you have an opinion regarding the importance or unimportance of a listed weapon/vehicle feel free to let us know .

For example .

PzKpfw V Panther http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panther_tank (edit . already available )

MG 34 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG_34

can you tell me if the PanzerFaust http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerfaust is working ?

Soviet Union

PTRD-41/PTRS-41 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PTRD

On a Sunday evening, around 15 of us are on generally on other nights we can probably muster 10-12. If you give Ernst Hoffmann a message on our forums, I'm sure he would be happy to look at setting things up!

Where did you get the idea that BIS and DS is going to build a standalone version of IF for Arma3?

We already have the mod Kju and team can patch and add to the mod version through patches like that have done.

Does the Play with 6 install of this no longer work? No matter what I do, I can't get this functioning.

Write the steps you took item by item here and it'll get sorted. Took me abit of headache also but have to say it was really worth it -I'd forgotten how cool Iron Front actually is and to add Arma 3 aspects and mods to it = the only game in town right now. Good luck!

Setup process

Preparations

Download the latest version of Play withSIX at http://withsix.com

Launch the application

Switch to beta branch: https://i.imgur.com/33t8QRO.gif

Let it download the latest version and restart PWS

Select games tab in the top left with a mouse click

Verify that Arma 3 and Iron Front have been detected properly

As workaround you can set the path yourself:

By opening the not installed section

Set the path for game directory

Register an account

Confirm the account with the link the in the email sent

Log into your account in the application in the bottom right

Choose a shared collection

You have four different options:

# 1 # IFA3SA version The small standalone package with high quality A2 assets (buildings and vegetation mostly)

# 2 # IFA3SA LITE version The smallest standalone package - means also low quality A2 assets (buildings and vegetation mostly)

# 3 # AiA SA version If you already have AiA SA, or want to combine it also with the A1/A2/OA terrains (or other assets) from BI or made by the community

IMPORTANT: You have to download and add AiA SA yourself to the collection as it's not yet available for PWS!

# 4 # AiA SA LITE version If you already have AiA SA LITE, or want to combine it also with the A1/A2/OA terrains (or other assets) from BI or made by the community

Hit the subscribe button for the shared collection of your choice.

Automated setup process

With the shared collection hit the Launch button in the bottom left

Confirm the installation by pressing the OK button

It will patch Iron Front to 1.05 if necessary - this will take several minutes

It will do the conversion process - this will take several minutes

It will apply the community patches - you may have to confirm the patch install

It will download/update all necessary mods

Once finished it will automatically launch the game with the correct modline

That right there is what I did. Seems pretty simple and straight-forward, but of course...I can't get it to work. Do I still need ARMA2 and all of it's expansions installed?

The guide didn't say anything about that. Could you possibly lay out a step by step for me?

I Used this Install Tutorial:

There is two versions of the DLC patch 1. Steam version and one for those who bought the Digital version. ( I had that problem, but solved it)

IronFront_DLC_Arma3_CommunityPatch_1.00-1.07_STEAM

or

IronFront_DLC_Arma3_CommunityPatch_1.00-1.07_Digitial

RPT and PAR file, you're going to have to dumb this down for me. I'm a total noob. Where is the RPT file located?

Mr Pedersen, I have that patch downloaded and I assume I install it AFTER PWS. I'll try that.

Rpt is in your Name/AppData/Arma 3 file and be aware the AppData folder may be invisible ;)

Steps I took in the non PWS way was.

Updated IF to 1.03

Updated IF to 1.04

Updated IF to 1.05

Ran the conversion tool

Updated IF to 1.12

Downloaded and installed the elusive IFA3SA folder

Finally loaded and all is well. :)

Alright, let me see if I'm following. Currently I have IF installed on steam so fully patched, also have arma 3 installed, fully patched. So all I have to do is download and install the IFA3SA file, install it, and patch to 1.12?

Well from the "Setup Guide" page link from first post

[h=2]Iron Front Full version[/h] Requires you to own Iron Front the game.

So I reinstalled all my Arma2 stuff just to be safe. Also, I don't have Steam IF I have Sprocket so not totally sure -but yes you need that file and maybe the conversion tool.....Yeah this one is confusing as hell :p

See that's the problem, I didn't think you needed ARMA2 installed now that all in ArmA works with all the stuff as long as you own arma3. I'll give that a try and see what happens. Thanks.

Read this page instead, you dont need arma2CO anymore thats why theres the IFA3SA now to replace what was required from arma2CO, the SA version has what IFA3 requires.

https://dev.withsix.com/projects/lib-issue-tracker/wiki/Setup_guide_for_Arma_3_version

All you need is as it says:

Prerequisites:

Arma 3 installed properly (steam and the game were launched with admin permissions once)

Arma 3 updated to latest stable branch version - dev branch may or may not work

Iron Front installed (the game was launched with admin permissions once)

And thats vanilla IF installed and patched to latest patch which is v1.05 so you will need the v1.03, v1.04, and v1.05 patches before you can do the conversion process.

Once thats done then set the paths on the conversion tool to point to your arma3 directory only the arma2, and arma2CO paths, then let it run.

Once complete then you should have an @IF folder in your Arma3 directory along with DLC_1 if you have the DLC.

The from there you'll need IFA3SA, IFA3 and the rest of the files you get from the patches. Its all on the wiki.
