Gunter got the wrong files and did not get the proper patch.

 

He does have it now and will test it further.

 

I have to say, it looks like BIS latest patch 1.54 fixes the tanks form auto repairing themselves when hit and not destroyed. I will do further tests to see, but it looks like we have a patch that can make IFA3 functional again!

No this is for the full version, if those that are running the lite version want to try to patch it on their end, then try it, but all patches and any fixes for the full IFA3 version should, I

would assume also work for the lite version as lite version from what I understand is low res textures and setup not to require IF in order to convert.

IFA3 Patch Update

Got word from Scar a few min ago, he is very busy with his studies and stuff with this time of year but he said he will get to the fixes, and should be a day or two before they are done,

thats specifically the sound issues, but at same time I sent him a link to my other post here with the list of issues you guys reported.

 

One thing I discovered through my testing and i been testing on and off today with my mods, and with IFA3 is that that satchels for IFA3 dont work, the mines,tripwires, and charges do,

also the sapper tools if in the binocular spot the mines,tripwires, and charges wont work as you cannot place them, however if you move the sapper tools to your inventory they will work,

also note the satchels dont work either way, so im adding that to the list.

 

updates list:

 

IFA3 patch 1.14 Bug list

  • a lot of sounds are far too quiet, especially in first person (e.g. all aircraft cannons are barely audible)

So I was following the instructions on this page to the letter:

 

https://dev.withsix.com/projects/lib-issue-tracker/wiki/IFA3_manual_install

 

It all went smoothly until I got to the two DLC patches. I recieved several errors, mostly relating to LIB_something to do with US characters not having weapons.pbo or something to that effect. "addon LIB_US_characters requires LIB_US_weapons pops up during game launch. The launch itself is smooth and quick, and in the home screen it says:

 

  • Iron Front A3 version: 1.10
  • Iron Front DLC version: 1.09
  • Iron Front version: 1.14

How can I get my A3 version to 1.11?

 

Bugs I've seen for this include on the Omaha map. There are Polish place-names in random places (like in the Channel) and no buildings. No towns, houses, or bunkers.

 

When I spawned a Red Army mechinized infantry group, it spawned with a German half-track/crew instead of Red Army's equivalents.

 

I was unable to spawn a Polish Home Army squad, but could spawn them individually.

 

And finally (But not lastly, I'm sure) I can't spawn any US units. I presume this is related to my errors during installation of the DLC patches. I apologize if I'm being a noob but I just got this semi-working after like two years of being to lazy to try. It looks fantastic right now and I want to play it (will play it, really). I just want to know what I did wrong here. Help!

So the update fix has solved the problems it was supposed to, but I'm still having DLC bugs with Omaha having no buildings and US units being absent from the game.

Update: I found individual US soldiers under INDEP, but weapon textures are buggy/white and they lack ammo.

On the first mission for the German Campaign the Russian plane crashes before it even gets to its way point so you cant move on.

interectic, the campaign issue is not because of the 1.14 patch because as per the changelog, the patch does nothing to the missions or campaigns,

that issue your reporting has been in IFA3 for a while, only way to fix it is if someone edits the campaign and actually fixes it.

 

@Hate send me a pm I have a fix for you, as your issue with the dlc is because the conversion tool hasn't fully converted the dlc.

I don't know if I'm supposed to ask that here or in the other thread (just tell me :3) 

I have not really a bug report, but something missing (no sound related things for once  ;) )
When inside the Sherman MG gunner (in 1st Person) you can't see where you are aiming. When going into 3rd Person you get a cross hair. So..a cross hair in the interior view of the Sherman would be nice (I know for the sake of immersion but if you'd use this thing in real life you would somehow know in which approximate direction you are aiming atm ^^)

Thats specific to IF feature, so heres a question overall, and tbh i forget myself but does the hull gunner for the Sherman have crosshair in vanilla IF itself?

if not then the feature/function was never created or added to the game for that tank position.

Is this available on PwS as Iron Front Standalone, or is this a separate setup?

Only way to fix them right now is to either use my IFA3WarMod---> https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/184291-ifa3warmod-release/

which adds and fixes alot of things, including those weapons, or just use Santa Six's sound mod--->  http://www.missionrepository.com/sound-mods-2-2(top mod) go to release thread for more info on it.

Other then that I have no one to fix anything in the list, no one has any time to do anything,
