Hello, im new to the fourms and would like to start on moddelling. basic modding for example with the BI Tools.
I think i have the right files to modify ARMA 2 OA,(because it mentions arma I and Arma II so i just wanted to make sure)the URL of the BI Tools that i downloaded is http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=6820
I play ARMA 2 OA standalone and ive seen a limited amount of mods,units, skins for the standalone edition(i know, i want to get the orginal too, but its not in the stores in my town) so i would like to learn some basics of modifying models textures, onto some arma 2 oa models. for example i have seen these packs http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=8860 which looks very good, but i cant use them since it requires the orignal, so i want to learn, or someone could teach me to convert thoughs textures and/or models to arma 2 oa without having to require the orignal arma 2. another thing i would like to learn is how to turn them into replacement packs. I have no knowledge to modding Arma 2 OA in anyway, but i know how to put them in the right place, as addons. and ive got a question that i would like to get around to figuring out, you've probably seen or used the M113 smoke Grenades that are in the drivers position, and they hit the ground, and deploy smoke instantly, does anyone in the community know how to or if theres a addon out there to turn the normal smoke grenades, hand held and the 40mm Grenade shells, to do the same thing, Deploy on impact?
So i would like to learn how to use the BI Tools(if theres a tutorial out there, or if someone can help me do specific things) and convert these packs to work with ARMA 2 OA standalone:
XDF DESCAM Units
USMC Variety Pack Units
(also i would like to have add a small modification to this pack, one set of soldiers to have the 3 tone desert, with woodland vests, around the 2003 style US marines)
Australian SPecial Air Service Units
