  Squint - the sqf editor and error-checker updated Editing    
sbsmac has informed us about the release of an updated Squint - the sqf editor and error-checker v on the BI Forums.

Hi guys, I have another tool to announce and one that I hope will make a huge difference to the world of arma scripting!
Squint is an editor and static-analyser (error-checker) for ArmA2 and Operation ArrowHead script files.

But no release is perfect and there have been a lot of great suggestions on how to improve squint. Based on those I've been working hard to add the following features....

* Line-numbers have been added to the code-window.
* Support for the following file-extensions: ext,sqm,cpp,hpp,rvmat,bin,cfg,pbl
* Search and replace have been added
* An 'undo' feature has been implemented
* A basic auto-indent has been implemented; you can auto-indent code as you go along or select a region and hit TAB to auto-indent.
* Auto-complete/intellisense has been implemented. When enabled, squint will monitor your typing and offer you a choice of possible completions in a pop-up dialog box. This really saves a lot of time and effort for those long BIS_fnc_.. names! Auto-complete can also offer you completion for local variable names that are in scope and can help you avoid 'bracket-fatigue' by offering completions for common control constructs, eg "for [{},{},{}] do {};" as a completion of "for".
* The colour scheme is more flexible than before. You can change the background colour and font used by the file-list and error-list and you get an immediate preview of your colour-changes for the code-window.
* You can import and export colour 'themes'; I hope to host some user-made themes on the squint website over the next week - please contact me via the BIS forums if you have a colour-scheme you'd like to share.
* BIS & ACE function names have been added to the dictionary as 'known' global variables.
* An external helper app allows shell-integration. Just right click on a file to open it in squint !
* Support for binarised files is now implemented. You can edit the contents of config.bin or any other binarised file, even those already inside pbo's.
* The error-detection phase is now much faster for large multi-file projects.
* The code-window now has much less flicker when jumping around within a file.
* As well as the new features, a significant number of bugs have been fixed including one that could cause squint to hang while idle.

Thanks to all who have provided feedback so far - please keep it coming to help me improve the tool.

As always, existing users should find that they are automatically updated to the latest version which is currently If squint is not updating, you can force an update by re-running the setup file.

  Ballistic Calculator 1.4 Demo by conKORD Addon release    
conKORD has released a Ballistic Calculator 1.4 Demo addon on the BI Forums.

* Works with Grad and MLRS.
* Additional crosshair that helps to aim in direct fire mode.
* Rangefinder. Enable BalCa, aim to target place and push "space".
* Added support for variable arty charges.

* Recalculates solutions when fire mode or current magazine changed.
* No more compatible with ArmA2, works only with OA.
* Do not requires CBA.

Comparing it with the new BIS arty.
* Still works with every weapon, not only where shells are with disabled airfriction.
* Also provides low solution, so minimal range for arty does not exist.
* Should be more handy to cover area.

  A2OA - Artillery Tutorial Video Videos    
Michal from IDEA Games has informed us about the release on YouTube of an ArmA2 : Operation Arrowhead tutorial video .

New video for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, introducing the new Artillery Computer feature, bundled with patch 1.54. This feature streamlines the use of indirect fire weapons, making ordering an artillery strike as simple as issuing a move command.
All indirect fire weapons can exploit the brand new Artillery Computer. This feature initiates an interface where you can see your weapon, and the associated minimal and maximal ranges on the map. You may adjust your fire mode in the menu to the right and select the target area that your ordinance will strike.

  Arma 2: British Armed Forces Released! Official    

Arma 2: British Armed Forces DLC release has been announced on the official site

Arma 2: British Armed Forces is deployed exclusively for the PC. It is available for GBP 7.99/EUR 8.99/USD 9.99. Buy your own copy NOW!

We are pleased to announce the continued reinforcement of NATO forces in the Green Sea region - with the deployement of British Armed Forces to Takistan and neighbouring Karzeghistan! Next in the line-up of military simulators, Arma 2: British Armed Forces - a huge downloadable addon for the recently released Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead - deploys today and delivers a new campaign, numerous single missions and a brand new faction and environment, expanding upon the already epic collection offered up by Arma 2's MilSim sandbox.

Less than two months after Operation Arrowhead successfully routed the Takistani military regime, NATO and coalition forces face a large-scale outbreak of guerilla insurgency. A mechanized force of Her Majesty's Armed Forces are about to deploy and embark upon a large-scale counter-insurgency campaign, which will define the future of the coalition presence in Takistan: Operation "Crimson Lance".

BAF provides an opportunity to explore the beautiful country of Takistan in even more depth, and offers the chance to hop across the border to Karzeghistan in the Shapur e-Dalanper region - a brand new area included as bonus content.

Detailed intel regarding the British Armed Forces faction background, its vehicles and weapons, is ready and available for immediate analysis.

Unfortunately, temporary technical issues prevent the release of Arma 2: British Armed forces through Steam. Currently, this issue is being addressed, and we actively seek to bring BAF to Steam as soon as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

  Arma 2 - Operation Arrowhead :Patch 1.54 released Official    

Michal from IDEA Games has informed us about the release of the Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead patch 1.54. An original version of Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead 1.50-1.53 is needed.


* Arma 2: British Armed Forces Lite - all units, vehicles and weapons from Arma 2: British Armed Forces are included in this patch with lower quality textures and audio files. The full version of Arma 2: British Armed Forces with high resolution textures and packed with a new campaign and large selection of new single player missions is available for purchase, see for more information about the content of Arma 2: British Armed Forces.

* Numerous stability and functionality fixes and improvements.

* Reworked MP Session Browser and Mission Selector.

* Engineer - Engineers have undergone some serious training and are now capable of repairing damaged vehicles and defusing mines. An engineer can patch up a badly damaged vehicle, making it operable. A damaged component can be repaired to 60% status; however, note that the total damage inflicted upon the vehicle persists, and further damage will be calculated cumulatively. An engineer can defuse mines, satchels, and IEDs. It's possible to order an engineer to repair/defuse something by standing close to it, selecting 'engineer' in your command bar, and then pressing '6-1' ('action' > 'defuse'/'repair'). If you are engineer yourself, simply select 'action' > 'defuse'/'repair' from the Action Menu (default binding is the middle mouse button).

* Artillery Computer - All indirect fire weapons can exploit the brand new artillery computer by selecting it in the Action Menu (default binding is the mouse wheel). The artillery computer initiates an interface where you can see your weapon, and the associated minimal and maximal ranges on the map. You may adjust your fire mode in the menu to the right and select the target area that your ordinance will strike. The display will indicate an estimated time to target; once you fire the ordinance - by clicking the 'Fire' button - the interface will track each shot. Your aim will change according to your actions once you leave the artillery computer.

Edit1 : Maruk has published new informations us on the BI Forums :

* Patch 1.54 is not compatible with the Steam version, Steam users have to wait for Steam auto-update

* A2: BAF DLC available to purchase through stores linked from , does not contain the patch 1.54 and users need to update their game to 1.54 before they can run A2BAF Full Version.

* BAF Lite included in the patch is scaled down quality of units and audio and does not contain any single player scenarios, BAF Lite is available primerily for Dedicated Servers and Clients in multiplayer to allow seamless online operation of A2OA + BAF

* Some users report problem updating Mission_E.pbo. We are looking into this issue and we will provide fix for them once we know what the problem was plus will probably provide download link for most recent missions_e.pbo

Edit2 : Jennik adds : In case you experience an "Error found in file EXPANSIONS\ADDONS\missions_e.pbo" error during the update installation, click the "Ignore" button and continue with installation.
When finished, download the file missions_e.pbo separately here, then search and replace the original file within your Arma 2 installation folder.

  [CO] Post Apocalypse Units by Icewindo Addon release    
Icewindo has released a Post Apocalypse Units addons on the BI Forums. This addon needs Combined Ops (ArmA2&OA).

So, here's my take on post-apocalyptic units. These guys can be found under independent -> Post APC - Commoners -> Units. Groups can be found under Ice - Post Acalypse.

I excluded afro-american faces so these units could be used in a variety of places. For some models, the heads wouldn't work properly anyway without mlod (and only a white head mlod exists so far). They were loosely inspired by the Terminator Salvation resistance and my own imagination.

  Shapur Crisis Escalates! Official    
Hot news from Sharig Plateau and Shapur e-Dalanper area released on official site.

Shapur Crisis Escalates!

Karzeghistan - particularly the Sharig Plateau and Shapur e-Dalanper provinces - is not high upon the international agenda; yet the lives of thoudsands of Karzegh nationals have been affected and their stories remain unheard. In our interview, we discuss the untold misery that has blighted the lives of those living around the volatile Takistani borderlands.

About a week ago, international observers warned that the Shapur e-Dalanper area was set to endure intense fire-fights. Their predictions turned out to be accurate. This week, countless civilian refugees have fled from the area, as elite Takistani troops swarmed deep into Karzegh territory and occupied Shapur.

Read here an AAN Special Report, in association with 'Green Sea Today' magazine :

An interview with Jamal, a Shapur refugee now at a camp in Ardistan after fleeing from the war-torn Sharig Plateau region, where he was determined to have his story told; determined to rebuild a life torn apart.
