I would suggest getting the duala map along with ACE2.

Reply if you need help installing ;)

Hi Peepin, I'm having a little problem installing ACE2 for Operation Arrowhead. Could you help me?

I put @WarFXParticles - another mod - inside ArmA 2 OA folder and it works fine. But when I transfered the ACE2 folders like @ACE, @ACEX, @ACEX_SM, @CBA to OA folder, I activated them in game, restared as ordered and I got this message: "Include file userconfig\ace\ace_clientside_config.hpp not found" and the game won't start.

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

Except what they don't tell you is half the time when playing ACE2, you're missing some single file that didn't get downloaded (deleted file acex_veh_m2, acex_veh_blahblahblah for example), limiting the number of servers you can join. Or you will get the error that you have deleted your isladuala map file, but in reality you have installed it four times, correctly, and it still won't acknowledge that you have it.

You're better off sticking to vanilla and just playing on servers with modded rulesets.

I wouldn't recommend ACE until you're very familiar with the base gameplay. ACE is great for veterans and hard core players, but it isn't friendly for beginners or intermediates.

It's got a lot of nice things, but it alters gameplay drastically and I hardly think it is a must have mod as most ARMA players do.

JTD Fire and Smoke - gotta have it (requires CBA and may not work on OA without some tweak)
LandTex - for Chernarus
GIB Copy Stance - makes your squad "copy my stance" like they should!

Zeus AI mod, GL4, Chammy Sound Mod are others worth taking a look at.

danielzaann, find the userconfig folder within the ACE folder (i think it's there, if not, search for it. Sorry, i did this a long time ago, so I can't remember it correctly.) and extract it to the arma2 directory, should work fine now.
