Advanced Combat Environment 3 (ACE3)

ACE3 is the collaborative efforts of the former AGM and CSE teams, along with many of the developers from Arma 2's ACE2 project.

This mod is entirely open-source (we are hosted on GitHub[]), and everyone is free to propose changes or maintain their own, customized version as long as they make their changes open to the public in accordance with the GNU General Public License.

ACE3 is built modularly, thus a team can maintain its own tailored version, excluding a select number of components that they don't like, or which conflict with other addons. Larger components themselves, like the medical system and other core features also include various customization options, allowing mission designers and communities to tweak the overall experience.

Battle eye is blocking my ace files. is there a reason for this?

In the old ACE I was able to do a complete healing with the following script, which does not work with the new version:

this addAction ["Complete healing", {[player,player] call ace_medical_fnc_treatmentAdvanced_fullHealLocal;}];

Is there an alternative for the new ACE ?
Thank you for your help.

Can't seem to get ACE arsenal to work anymore.
Code: [_box, true] call ace_arsenal_fnc_initBox;
Same code that is on the wiki

Не происходит захват цели пусковых установок Титан Компакт, Джавелин (CUP и RHS). Убирал все моды, оставлял только ACE и CBA, ванильная пусковая установка Титан Компакт отказывалась захватывать движущуюся цель и вообще стрелять. Титан MPLR работает отлично, происходит захват воздушной цели и выстрел. Если убрать ACE, то все пусковые установки работают отлично. Удалял этот мод, переустанавливал его, проверял целостность файлов самой игры, переназначал кнопки в настройках как в основных, так и в дополнении ACE, ни чего не помогает!

@uhhmm The problem is fixed now. Because there was an update for CFG, what is used by ACE and it wasn't updated. Now everything works fine.^^

@Yung_Twiz Same here. Everything associated with ace (ace no medical, Cobalt Ace, etc) all crash, even run independently. Ever since the update back on January 1st have caused this problem.
