ok thx

@Jakes I can't 100% assure you that it will work client side only, but I'm pretty sure it would, execpt you call functions on the server / use the mission module of course. All the functions of the ACE Actions are called locally.
So I don't recommend not loading the mod on server but it should work theoretically.

Client side or server & client

Hey DerZake, just saw your reply! Yes I've been able to reproduce it. I have quite a mod list I am using though, including a version of Ace that has a few PBO's removed.

Tonight I will test it with just this mod and Ace loaded and see if I can get it to happen again.

Hey Bagellord. First of all thanks for the report. Is this reproducible? Which mods/scripts did you use? Are you sure this issue was caused by BOC?

Hey - noticed an odd issue the other night. I had a mission where we started off in freefall, and used the mission editor module to put the backpacks on chest then added a parachute using the module. Everything was fine and dandy when we got to the ground - ditched our reserve chutes and put the backpacks on our backs, but when we got into a vehicle and then back out, it thought the pack was on front again and forced us to walk slow. Had to switch backpack to chest, then back off again. This occurred even if you didn't have have a pack when you got into a vehicle.

Not a problem, I completely understand where you're coming from. I've been trying to switch my unit over for sometime, it's a great mod by the way.

@DeltaAlpha I haven't planned a non ace version. Maybe sometime in the future but to be honest, I don't think it's going to happen. Almost every unit uses ace nowadays and I personally hate the vanilla action menu. I'm sorry to disappoint you.

is it possible to make a none ace dependant version of this mod. Im part of a airborne unit that doesn't use ace.
