All in Arma (AiA) - TKOH/OA/A2/A1 merge with A3

1825 posts in this topic

IMPORTANT: Upload to Steam workshop is not allowed! Only CUP will be in the future when ready.

==================

= What is All in Arma =

==================

It allows you to merge your other Arma engine games with Arma 3.

This happens solely on the config level - this means no model upgrades or terrain modifications, nor TKOH RTD FM (not out of the box at least).

However you will have the weapons, vehicles, missions and terrains from previous products available inside Arma 3. Official BI and community made content.

Some new A3 features will be possible to support later on, while others such as physx would require model modifications and as such are out of scope.

===========================

= Current state =

==============

You cannot mix A2/OA infantry units with A3 infantry as this causes visual glitches and crashes.

Tanks and cars are missing most engine sounds and tanks easily flip over. Only BI can sort these out.

Aside from those the rest works basically. However rest assured there are still plenty of smaller to bigger problems.

All A2/OA worlds are using the Stratis lighting and sky configuration for the start. Further tweaks to come.

Ambient animals (sea and land) are also in now based on the Stratis configuration. To be adjusted later on.

The respective A3 infantry model related content is hidden (units, groups and vehicles in the editor, official missions). One can still load custom missions with A3 units.

# Simple solution: Disable AiA if you want to play the regular A3 alpha.

# Advanced solution: To make missions with A3 units/vehicles and use AiA content, you can simply remove the AiA_DisableA3Content.pbo meanwhile.

Basic TKOH support is available. Read about the TKOH specific issues and limitations in the Known issues section.

Basic A1 terrain support is available, as well as an A1 to A2/OA classes mapping - in other words A1 missions and campaigns should be somewhat playable with AiA. To avoid missing objects, you need to merge two pbos yourself. More in the FAQ section of the AiA wiki.

Please report any issues you encounter in the AiA issue tracker.

Please read the notes how to report problems in the AiA wiki.

Note this is an early version, but you can expect fast progress with many updates in the coming days and weeks ahead.

Interesting project, good luck with it - looking forward to seeing the results :)

My only query:

community made content.

What if the creator of that content doesn't want it to be in A3, however that may be achieved?

It is for people to respect the authors conditions as always.

However we are not to be naive that some will ignore such regardless.

Still they couldn't be stopped sooner or earlier anyway as one can see by the numerous other attempts to provide content merging.

Wow, works great kju, hopefully Sakura or somebody will bring lighting config changes to this so we can avoid competing ports.

Then all we need is BIS to help out with the soldiers/DLC.

Hmmm, whats wrong with my targetline?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3.exe" -mod=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2;C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead;C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3;@allinarma

I can't add any more quotation marks either as Im outta space :o

Edit: Nevermind got it working by dumping all Arma2/addons and OA Common into OA/Expansions thereby allowing me to shorten the target line

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3.exe" "-mod=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead\Expansion;C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3;@allinarma"

I personally SO CANT WAIT for the Takistani Militia units models to be ported to Arma 3, along with islands like Razani and Helmand Province with Arma 3's enhanced lighting. Awesome work! Thanks for bringing that one step closer to happening :D Cant wait to fight back in Afghanistan (so to speak)

Sorry didnt realize/think of it limitations of normal links..

One can use batch files to extend the parameter limit; maybe steam supports also more input.

Otherwise launcher tools are the way to go.

Well you're going to be waiting a long time.

Pretty sure Kju says model changes are out of scope. This would be a model change.

"No entry 'config.bin.tooltipDelay'.

"Shaders not valid (mismatch of exe and data)"

Any help?

When the rearmed patch was released for Toh and Hinds it merged all A2 and OA models into Toh I think it was config changes as for them to redo all models to work on the new skeleton system would take a while, also all the community addon units worked too and none of them were edited to make them work by the authors if you see what i mean i just added the mod line and they worked on Toh with the rearmed patch so there must be a way round it by config changes to skeletons or maybe a pluggin to allow the older units to work along the new ones on the new engine allowing them not to conflict.
