If i had manually set Atoc=0 in ArmA2OA.cfg will the 1.62 update inherit that setting or will i have to manually change it again?

Atoc=0 cleaned up my trees, bushes and grass tremendously. Before that they looked fluffy.

It should pick it up as it is where the setting is saved.

If I install this patch, when I download ACR (full version) will it work with this, or do I need to wait for something different. Same goes for what do we do if we want the Lite ACR stuff, do we install his, and then install something else later?
