Hi everyone! Over the past week or so I have gotten back into ARMA and have been amazed at all the incredible mods now available.
I am running ACE as my primary mod, along with the HiFi sound set and that works fine.
I also really like some of the AI enhancements included in ECS (along with the ambient sounds) but I am curious about the two separate wounding/bleeding systems.
It now seems as if when I get wounded the two systems seem to overlap on one another. The ECS system will usually allow me to perform First Aid and stop the bleeding but sometimes it seems as if the ACE system superceeds and my guy will still succumb to shock or pain.
It *seems* as if they work in tandem with each other, but I am not sure this is how it supposed to work. Are many people running ECS and ACE together anymore? I used the Mod guide posted on this forum and both systems are initializing and seem to be fine, but I wanted to see if anyone had another experience with these mods running aside each other.
Now, to muddle things up a little more I am interested in adding the GL3 1.4 mod as well. Again, it looks as if there is some feature overlap and I was looking for possible guidance with anyone running a similar config.
One last question, the documentation for many of the mods really seem to assume a lot of familarity with the games scripting and editing and its never really clear if when I play the stock missions or campaigns if I will I get all the moded AI effects. I certainly see graphic and sound differences (and the wounding system and UI changes), but it's hard to really determine if the enemy AI is really acting much different in those older missions. Do i need to somehow update them to support the mods that add new AI behavior or are these mods basically plug-play?
I know I am asking a lot but I am really enjoying AMRA all over again (and excited about ARMA 2) and was hoping for some guidance from those that have been doing the mod shuffle for years.
