@SekiGamer Care to provide the link and not just a name while you're at it? Like so: BackpackOnChest - Redux ? No? Never mind.

Just as a note someone has already made an updated version of this mod. @DerZade maybe you can look into that? It's called BackpackOnChest - Redux

@DerZade i understand, i am starting in the arma 3 scripting and noticed some inconsistencies between windows and linux or different vanilla functions of arma 3, maybe u can use a work around. Thanks u for replay. Also, can i re-upload the mod into a pack to community use with my traduction?

Indeed I haven’t done a lot since 2018. The time I have for projects like this is fairly limited.
So I’ll invest the little time I have in projects that are fun atm and don’t feel like a chore.
I stopped working on the refactor after realizing once again that Arma’s implementation is shitty af. (See this ticket [] I opened around the same time)
I hope to get a release ready in October (when I’m in between jobs), to finally get BOC on a technical level I don’t need to feel ashamed for anymore. But no promises. I have a lot planned for that month.
Considering the popularity of this mod, there will probably be some internal testing, after the release is ready so don’t expect a release in October if at all.

Hi, can u merge the traduction request in github, and update the mod? I look to the repository and notice that the refactor is in work since 2018
