Some notes about MMA_XEH_AutoLaunch.pbo made by Kju:

If you have this and Extended Event Handlers it will try to self-initialize MMA in the following way:

- If the mission being played has not initialized MMA after few seconds and it is the server, it initializes MMA.

- If the mission being played has not initialized MMA after few seconds and it is a client, it initializes MMA only if the server has initialized it.

- If the server initialized it but you dont have MMA, you will see a notification every 10 seconds indicating that MMA is missing on your client.

When MMA is self initialized it checks for presence of FFAA and ACE to setup automatically their respective configurations.

Important note: MMA_XEH_AutoLaunch.pbo has been moved to @mma_xeh folder, dont forget to remove the MMA_XEH_AutoLaunch.pbo that might be present in your current @mma folder. If you want to use the autolauch, execute ArmA2 with mod=@mma;@mma_xeh modifiers.

Defunkt made a modification of the default BIS Javelin reticle that you can DOWNLOAD HERE

MMAJavelinReticle.jpg

The mando_javelin.pbo enables a better (wider) reticle for the Javelin and replaces the default crosshair with more authentic targeting 'stadia', these changes can only be made with an addon where the core MMA suite can be addon or script-only hence it is packaged separately. It is especially recommended if your display resolution should result in part of the default reticle showing.

He also made a modification of the Apache default MMA bi-monocle that you can DOWNLOAD HERE:

MMAApacheMonocle.jpg

The mando_apache.pbo replaces the default 'bi-focal' monocle implementation (two separate images representing both the mono and stereo image) with the more usual combined stereo (only) view.

Credits:

Defunkt, aside from pretty good ideas, he provided sounds, the outstanding images of the RWRs for east and west planes and fine-tuned all the PAAs present in the pack, he also modified Raptor6 MFD to include "NTSC" effect as well as some nice pp effects for older type cameras. Customized MMA HUDs including HMD and AH64 monocle, as well as Javelin, Metis, Stinger, Strela and Igla portable missiles.

Raptor6, do you like the fantastic background of the TV systems? it is from him.

Deanosbeano and scars who provided some mando turret models usable for the Phalanx gun.

Cyborg11 for the ACE2 setups

Kju for MMA_XEH_AutoLaunch.pbo

Evil Echo and Gigan for nuclear warheads

Been testing all evening, very satisfactory. Some suggestions:

-Remove the ability of the Cobra pilot to access the Hellfire cam and fire missiles from it.

-Add vehicles (not modelled ones, just vanilla ones) that already have the SCUD, patriot, etc scripts running on them, via EEH.

-Keep up the good work! :D

Just tried the MH60S with my ported version of GNATs submarines and they work flawlessly.

Very nice for doing ASW missions from the frigate and destroyer.

I'm now working into adding MMA to my addon version of the ANZAC

Not sure if this was an issue brought up by anyone else during testing, but it seems that all freefall weapons (FAB 250s or Mk82s, haven't tested Mk84s on the F16 as of yet) get a rocket assist to their target if you manually target them.

They engage their motors whenever you have the object targetted, but only track when it is in the front 180. CCIP or A2A modes didn't affect the bombs behaviour in that neither prevented rocket assist when the target was manually locked. Multiplayer (Undedicated) and singleplayer doesn't affect it either. Dedicated was not tested.

If this is the first time this has been encountered, I'd like to christen it SCRAMDAM :)

Bugs are to be expected in beta releases, and I'd like to congratulate Mandoble and his testers on an otherwise great release! Thanks for all the effort put into this mod and I hope we see many more superb releases from the Mando team in the future.
