The "Official" Advance and Secure Thread (AAS)

Recommended Posts

AAS Complete Pack released

Although the AAS Complete Pack was released already one month ago here is the according news and it might be the last one for quite a while. This latest and maybe last "official" release holds the newest versions for ArmA2, Operation Arrowhead and Combined Operations. It contains Templates for each of the three Game-Versions for Stock- and also a couple of famous Community-Islands like Panthera, Namalsk and Quesh Kibrul and more. Coders and Modders will find also the non-shrinked and fully documented code-versions of AAS for each of the three Games (A2/OA/CO).

AAS is designed as PvP-Game-Mode for all but especially for larger scales but it can also be played as SP-Mission with AI against AI or as Coop-Experience. AAS requires NO Mods/Addons to be installed on Server/Clients with Missions based on Stock-Islands. Have fun with more than 140 Missions and all the tools to make countless more!

Due to the lack of public interest in AAS and not receiving much Feedback during the past three months please understand that my personal motivation in running AAS-Activities has reached almost zero meanwhile. It looks like some are doing their own developments recently (which is allowed and appreciated!) but are unfortunately not interested in sharing them with the whole community here. Please understand that I won't answer personal requests via Email and PMs anymore regarding AAS, please use this Site and its Ticket-System or the Forums at advanceandsecure.com for questions/suggestions and Feedback so answers and discussions are available to the whole community and not just for one person. If you want to experience AAS nowadays in a way it was meant to be played in a 30vs30+ environment, the now starting Armed Global Warfare Campaign 5 Tournament is the best place to go I know. So check it out! Thanks to the Basecamp-Allstars who made the AAS-Site/Forums stay online by paying the bills as an archive and maybe it'll come back to live one day.

I thank CoolBox for porting and supporting the best-ever-game-mode AAS to the ArmA-World and of course kju for his countless hours of supporting a complete noob (me) in a million of editing-issues and troubleshooting me integrating his great work into AAS. Of course also thanks to all Members of the AAS-Network and the many many mission makers who all kept this alive! As I failed to attract any new coders to this project for some more polishing it's time for me to step back. I'll check this site and the mentioned Forums for any questions that might arise and try to answer them as good as I can and if one really wants to pick it up with or without my help I'll be glad to support that both. ;-)

Thank you!

"AAS-Advance and Secure" Operation Arrowhead Missionpack V1.14

Release V1.14 can be found here

"AAS-Advance and Secure" Operation Arrowhead Missionpack V1.13

Release V1.13 can be found here

"AAS-Advance and Secure" Operation Arrowhead Missionpack V1.12

Two days late already but now it´s time for the initial Release of "Advance and Secure for the Armed Assault II standalone expansion Operation Arrowhead". The initial package contains 24 templates to build own AAS-Missions on the new terrains "Takistan", "Zargabad" and the "Desert" and six brandnew missions ready to play! Only Hosts need to download the package or players that like to explore the Missions alone or want to fight the AI. One known feature from previous versions unfortunately isn´t working anymore within Operation Arrowhead: The Medic-Revive System is obsolete because the dead bodies disappear almost immediately. Given the fact that the Medic never was popular in AAS Public Gaming this won´t hurt most players and can be hopefully fixed in the near future.

The release is fully compatible with "Operation Arrowhead" standalone, ArmA2 is not required to play it (only for all earlier AAS-Releases!)! You can download the AAS-OA-Package here.

I´d like to thank CoolBox for starting this AAS-Project two years ago in ArmA1 already and kju for his awesome work and support during the last eight months, especially during the last few days porting this to Arrowhead. Of course also thanks to quattro who designed 50% of all initial OA release-missions and qwertz for giving AAS a face with the Logos. Thank you all guys!





"AAS-Advance and Secure" Complete Mission Pack V1.11

As promised one week ago the separate pure AAS-Missions-Release featuring different Rulesets for Hosts with and without enabled AI is today. There´s also a new feature for Mission-Designers that allows to place Flags at different elevations now.

It fully supports/requires the earlier Addon-Package Installer V1.1 Release (read below!)

We also made a Ruleset-Cleanup, this release Features a new "Default Ruleset" and two popular Community-Rulesets (Armacalypse and ArmA2.ru ).

I´m also thankful for the following new missions made by Armacalypse-Community-Members that we are allowed to add as well. These missions are new/updated in this release:

•Armcalypse Now (Duala)

•Battle for Zappado (Panthera)

•Broken River (Panthera)

•Coastal Roads (Panthera)

•Dunes Reloaded (Panthera)

•Jalovisko Disko (Namalsk)

•Lake Ukane (Panthera)

•Saint Pierre (Everon)

•SnowEPass (Namalsk)

•Strike@Lesce (Panthera)

Get more than 100 AAS-Missions now! (For Hosts/Mission-Designers, Clients get the Missions automatically while joining a game)



"AAS-Advance and Secure" Addon-Package V1.1

Today I´m a little bit proud to say that using certain Addons for ArmA2 especially in combination with the Advance and Secure game-mode has never been easier as with this release of version 1.1. Of course the Community has to agree yet and I´m looking forward to the feedback we´ll hopefully receive. The AAS-Advance and Secure Addon-Package V1.1 contains for the first time all Missions, Addons and Keys that are needed to play/host AAS today in one simple to use Installation package supporting numerous languages:

Original 1.0 Release-Post


What is AAS?

AAS is a Team vs Team Multiplayer-Mode coming from Novalogics game "Joint Operations" brought to ArmA2 by CoolBox-SBS. In case you´re new to AAS here´s an overview with additional links how it works, explaining the HUD, general Tactics and specific key-controls. It´s not complete and not nice yet, I know, I´ll come to that later.

AAS comes as a bunch of scripts that are part of a mission-layout but it is a bit more than just that. That´s why I hope this thread is right here, because this is about the AAS-Project as a whole, not just one mission and there are so many people involved.

Translated from the german Wikipedia:

AAS (Advance and Secure):

Despite both X-Ray Homebases of each team, there are several objectives that need to be conquered in order. A Teams wins if it captures all Objectives or owns more than the opponent at the end of a given amount of time.

Unlike it is done in the Battlefield-Series you´re not fighting for all objectives at the same time, instead they need to be taken in a certain order which keeps the action very focussed and dense and the usage of tactical skills, teamwork and logistics is more vital than single player actions. Also you don´t have to stand 2m beside a flag to decamp an objective, you´ve to outnumber the enemy inside a bigger perimeter around the flag, at that point the enemy is not able to spawn anymore in that objective and he needs to reinforce from other objectives/bases further back. Only if the flag is down (decamped), one player needs to get close to take control of that objective. You´ve to decamp, overtake and upcamp an objective until it is fully functional and you can spawn your troops there.


Indepedent from the standard ArmA2-Classes you can pick in the Lobby of an AAS-Server, the real Class-Change/Choice in "AAS für ArmA2" happens only and directly in the game at the Armory:

  • Rifleman: Standard-Class - Nothing Spectacular, carrying an assault rifle an some grenades
  • Grenadier: Only this Class has access to grenade launchers (M203/GP25)
  • Engineer: Most Important unit for Anti-Tank/Anti-Air
  • Medic: Medics can heal wounded and revive dead teammembers at the cost of firepower
  • Gunner: The Machinegun-Guy
  • Sniper: The Sharpshooter
  • Recon: Carries silenced weapons only and satchels for operations behind enemy lines/nighttimes.

All 73 AAS Missions in V1.0 contain the complete Game-Mechanics. Only for the "Non-Chernarus-Missions" you need (Panthera/LittleBird/Sahrani) on Servers and Clients. This means that all 49 Chernarus-Missions require nothing else than vanilla ArmA2 and work direct "out-of-the-box" on every Server while Clients Download the mission automatically if they join a server. So no need to install anything, just put the desired Mission in your ArmA2 "mpmissions"-folder and give it a go!

The Future of AAS

After the upcoming 1.0 release we want to focus on AAS-Gameplay and the Community itself to improve and develop gameplay. Therefore we´d like to start a small Community-Page that brings all the AAS-Interested People like those already mentioned in this Thread closer together for Events and Information. Of course we plan to bring AAS to Operation Arrowhead as soon as it hits the shelves as well.

All this will be announced in this Thread soon. Of course your questions and Feedback are/is welcome here as well.

Awesome :)

Hopefully the coop kids aka noobs :D will see the beauty of these missions, so much fun... a huge step over the last great PvP set 'Berzerk'.

Congrats to the BCA team on their first non beta release of these amazingly fun missions.

Now hurry up ;P

Thats awesome news - can't wait for the final release!

Its funny that many people complain about the missing PvP gameplay in ArmA while at the same time there is a jewel like the AAS pack.

I can just invite everyone to try it out - it has everything (and more) that a good, tactical PvP mode needs, and (in my humble opinion) is so much more fun and challenging than fighting against largely mindless AI.

Keep up the great work ! :yay:

Thanks Guys!

Congrats to the BCA team

Congratulations to the AAS-Team please, BCA is just a small part of that. :-)

AAS will feature "largely mindless AI" as well (it´s capable of playing AAS completely on its own already!), you can check that out on the servers in my sig. AAS-Coop is possible but originally it was meant for the time you´re waiting for more real players to join! ;-)

I disagree. AAS is the most boring type of PvP out there.

Not everyone likes the FPS or CS style of pvp. It's more of a challange when you fight other people if their is a purpose behind it other than capturing a flag or just killing for the sake of points and internet-ego.

I have been tracking the progress of these mission sets for some time now and think they are great and you can get some great tactical team pvp out of these missions. To win in AAS missions you have to work as a team or you will not be successful.

I do have one question...will these missions be compatible with ACE2?

Well, I played JO for some years and this project is the only reason most BCA-Members inlcuding myself bought ArmA2 at all. However it turned out that ArmA2 is a bit too much hardcore for some players, that´s why I don´t know if it works with ACE2 or not. Should be no that big deal to make it working, however I´ve no time and interest to do that but maybe someone else. Personally I just love AAS and the ArmA2-Engine obviously is an awesome mighty toolbox that offers the ability and scale to make AAS happen again.

In AAS you can pick a predefined Gear-Setup (ArmA2-Slots mean nothing) from an armory when in the game and go with that instantly. No two minutes gear-setup manually if you don´t want it. Revives are instant. It has Spawn-Protection, Spawn-Queues, Spawn-Delay. More than 70 missions of all scales and terrains. No Ingame-Ranks that prevent players using the hardware on the missions. Different Rulesets to choose from.

Might sound a bit arcade but what finally matters is Teamplay, Communication, Logistics and Medics. Oh, and don´t forget Fun! Should still offer more depth than Betafield and CoD ever will.

Well what about a nice teasing AAS trailer or/and ingame footage?

I´ll try, but everyone is free to contribute as well! :-)

Well I can say that I have been working with the missions some for the ArmA II unit I am in and so far we like the gameplay style. The only thing we have found that we would like to see changed would be the addition of ACE2 which would allow a more realistic gaming experience. We are currently working on trying to add ACE2 to the missions, but have found some incompatabilities with the mission scripting and some of the modules.

Hopefully we can find some work arounds to alleviate these issues as this has massive potential for some real combat simulation.

maybe if AAS allowed ACE or more mods id play it. The action is certainlymore consistant than that of a dom game. As well as new missions for the new islands like namalsk, thirsk, duala etc.

This seems nice. Not too compicated to play as Devastation nor too "messy" as Berseker\similars.

But indeed, a ACE version would be very welcome to use such features as CQB sights, CSW and so on.

Really nice concept!!

But in my opinion there are too many information on the screen :D .

Maybe you could remove all this info!!

You can toggle thru AAS-HUD-Display-Modes by pressing CTRL+H while playing. At least you´ll see the objectives in the upper right while everything else is disabled. However most of the information makes sense and you get used to it. You can also increase/decrease the size of HUD-Elements within the grahpics-options for example. That video shows the "Full-AAS-HUD" in "Minimum-Size" (which is what I use) at 2:08 and "Normal-Size" (for improved visibility/readibility in that Video but way too big) at 0:37 for example. Kill- and Server-Messages are optional at Server-Side as well.

What was done to resolve the "defenders spawn inside the zone they are defending and thus you have to spawn camp them in order to kill them faster than they spawn" issue?

Share this post

Link to post
Share on other sites

The "Issue" you´re talking about still is part of the fundamental AAS-Game-Concept but that got improved by bringing in its original Spawn-Delay. If there´s heavy fighting going on a player that gets shot in his "to defend objective" is out of the game for 20s if he I wants to join at the front again (cumulating "Spawn-Delay-" and "Spawn-Queue-Timers" each 10s). However this can be bypassed by using medics. In order to prevent your enemy from spawning in that objective you have to outnumber them in their own perimeter. This is possible without a single shot (but decreasing enemy numbers by shooting them helps a lot). That is essential, don´t expect any changes here in AAS-Core. It´s a major part of AAS that you get near and finally into a perimeter as a team without being seen until the very last moment being covered by a sniper or LAV/Tank/Air-Support.

In case you still don´t like that, take a look at PvPScene-AAS mentioned in the initial post, that features a slightly different AAS and an additional Attack and Defend-Mode that might be closer to what you´re a looking for.

You´re right, it´s not posted here because it´s completely outdated and I had no time updating it yet. You caught me not making my homework completely. ;-)

I´ll try give you an update here:

With V1.0 the predefined Classes/Kits-Loadouts are identical in Public/Hardcore/BCA and with just slight changes in ArmA2.ru, they were way more different before. Arma2.ru features very slow healing speed compared with the others.

In Classic everyone can revive, which makes the Medic obsolete and you can pick up every weapon on both sides if you do manual loadouts at the armory. Some kind of unlimited "Arcade-Style". All other Rulesets only offer side-specifig weaponry.

BCA and Public are almost identical, just slightly reduced Heal-/Revive-/Cap-Range (5m instead of 10m) and proportional Capping-Speed enabled according to player numbers in BCA and disabled custom loadouts as we think the predefined Kits are good enough.

Hardcore features also the lower heal-/Revive-/Cap-Ranges, addtional friendly tags are only shown up to 60m distance (up to 1000m in all other Rulesets) and the HUD is limited as well (no Minimap!). Spawn Protection only lasts 8s compared with 10s in the other Rulesets and Class-Change is set locked for 60s after making a change while the others have just 30s or no Class-Lock (Classic).

The AGW-Ruleset was used in a Tournament in their Campaign 2 and is a bit special. You´ve to find out yourself.

I suggest Public is the best to start with and based on this you can decide if you want it less restrictive (Classic) or just slightly more hardcoreness (BCA/ArmA2.ru) or maximum hardcoreness (Hardcore).


Honestly I still don´t know what prevents AAS from working with ACE2, has one tried it once? I know CEAL had running an AAS Server with ACE2 and there was almost no activity. If there is so much public demand for AAS with ACE2 I don´t get why no one can tell us what the problem is.

There are several AAS-PvP-Servers up, on ours AI gets automatically disabled as soon as there are more than eight human players on the server, which is the default-Setting for the AI-Enabled-Packages supplied in the Final-Release. I just want to say that - if AI is present on a Server - it does NOT mean it will be around all the time, it´s just meant to keep the players entertained while on low numbers until more players join. Playing 1vs1 for half an hour is not that funny. If a round starts with nine players you don´t see any AI at all.

Thanks for your Feedback guys, keep posting your thoughts!
