--- Overview ---

LEA is a standalone application with goal to simplify the customisation of player's loadout and mission edition. The software uses a full graphical interface and maximum automatised processes to help mission-makers and team players waste as less as possible time in editing loadouts. To do so, LEA has the capability to read and rewrite mission.sqm as well as generate SQF scripts into ArmA 2 mission. The software is provided with @LEA addon for players to make their loadout at mission start-up with LEA whatever the mission running on server. LEA can also help ArmA 2 team play thanks to its capability to easily share user profiles and missions through FTP.

LEA for Players:
- Creation of an unlimited number of profiles see applicable ingame, at mission start. see
- Many Weapon Addons supported, included ACE 2, ACRE, all Robert Hammer's pack and more. see
- Possibility to share profiles by FTP, using LEA Client Interface. see

LEA for mission makers:
- Edition of all units (playables & AI), of all side. see
- Edition of vehicule cargos, ammunition boxes, and all objects having cargo in the mission. see
- Usable with any unit and vehicle addon.
- Quick edition commands by using predefined profile or by quick creation. see
- Edition of Name and Descritpion units attributes. see
- Extraction and Compression *.pbo (Windows only). see
- Possibility to share missions by FTP, using LEA Client Interface. see

LEA for ArmA 2 Teams:
- FTP Auto config file generator, to easily share profiles and missions. see

My favorite software for Arma 2, good job Sheppard.


OK, i tired to create a new profile as suggested but it keeps giving error "Cant create Profile!"

Launch LEA> profiles > Edit > Click on units for create a unit profile or on vehicules for vehicules profiles, now you can click on the new button, click on it, put a name with basic characters. Click on the name in the right column and add weapons.

Also the option to turn off ace doesnt work, ace weapons are still available, when i unselect it and press close, and then open 'Manage addons again its shows as still selected?


It's work for me.

Do you have read the Wiki ?

Yup, since this saves the profiles in it's install folder, under Program Files, instead of the user's My Documents folder you need admin rights to save the files. More examples of why no one should ever install anything to Program Files ever again. :)

Doesn't ACE put NVGs in the Equipment slots now instead of in the Optical slots? So you can carry NVG, Binocs and MX2 all at the same time for example. Something you can't do in LEA currently since it considers NVGs to be Optical.

In LEA, all stuff in the "Optical" list goes to the "Equipment" slot of ArmA 2 for both vanilla and ACE 2.^^

Nice one!


Thanks. Actually LEA uses data from sick-bowser for what concerns ArmA 2 and ACE 2. Thank you so for this huge work of compilation. :)

Also the CLU is taking up a back (launcher) slot. With ACE it goes into an optics slot. Would it be possible to do some configs for an ACE vs Non ACE loadout?

So it did change place? I gonna look at it. You will have a fix in a next update through LEA Updater.

I don't understand your question exactly. You can configure LEA to be used without ACE stuff (no weapon, Ace Wounds system desable etc) => go Help menu, select Addons Manager and uncheck ACE. Thus doing so you would not mistaken with ACE stuff while doing a profile for example.
