ACE comes to Insurgency Sim 2.03

Ok folks going to try out ACE for Insurgency (I've been applying ACE features to Insurgency Sim)

You will need:

http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=12155 (ACE  2 OA - Core)
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=12158 (ACE 2 OA - Extras)
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=6231 (unless you have CBA already installed)

These are the stable versions of ACE rather than the Release Clients or Betas. (If you are using 6 Updater this will tend to download the latest RC client rather than the stable release, so suggest using Armaholic to download.)

Download both of these and unpack into your Arma folder

You should end with @ACE and @ACEX as the new directories.

BEFORE you enable the mods.... goto the @ACE directory and goto the STORE folder. Unpack the userconfig.tar file (winrar will unpack if you don't have a program to open it) into your Arma OA folder so you should end up with a userconfig/ace directory.

THEN goto the ARMA OA/userconfig/ace directory and edit the text file ace_clientside_config.hpp scroll down until you find:
#define ACE_IDENTITY John Doe
change this to your profile name ingame.. for me..

#define ACE_IDENTITY TotalBoffin

Save the file and then start ARMA OA and enable both the @ACE and @ACEX mods.

You will need to keep @CBA enabled.
You can also keep the @JSRS mode enabled if you want to keep the custom sounds for the ARMA OA guns etc.

Don't worry about all the new keys to start with the only two you need to know are the Interaction Button (defaults to the Right Windows Key) and the Self Interaction Button (defaults to App Menu key, which is found next to the right control key normalIy).

If you need to adjust your keys, I would suggest that you first goto @ACE\clippi folder and run the program aceclippi.exe then start Arma. If you adjust your keys in Arma and quit, aceclippi will save the settings for you!

Server 3 is running a test version of ACE Insurgency Sim 2.03. The only difference is that the loadout is now all in the green ammo boxes at the Service Point and accessible using the Gear option.

  1. It all looks quite daunting, but it's easy when you sit down and read through what you have to do. Don't hesitate to ask for help on the forums if having trouble with setting up ACE or any other mods. Desert Devils Forum
