Installation

{% include tip.html content="Steam or community-provided installation methods are recommended over manual setup for ease of use." %}

Steam

  • Subscribe to ACRE2 on Steam (make sure you are also subscribed to CBA_A3).
  • Launch Arma 3.
  • ACRE2 will try to copy the plugins to your TeamSpeak 3 installation directory. A pop-up will appear describing what the process did.
  • Launch TeamSpeak 3 and assure the ACRE2 plugin is enabled in the Settings -> Plugins window.

Manual

  • Download from the latest version and extract the .zip file to your hard drive.
  • Navigate to your Arma 3 installation folder.
  • Delete any current @acre2 folder and then paste in the @acre2 folder you from the extracted .zip.
  • Proceed with Arma 3 Launcher or a manual Shortcut creation.

Arma 3 Launcher

  • Launch the Arma 3 Launcher, go the the Mods menu, and click to add a local mod.
  • In the dialogue that appears, navigate to your Arma 3 installation folder and select the @acre2 folder.
  • Enable the mod.
  • Launch Arma 3 in the Launcher.
  • ACRE2 will try to copy the plugins to your TeamSpeak 3 installation directory. A pop-up will appear describing what the process did.
  • Launch TeamSpeak 3 and assure the ACRE2 plugin is enabled in the Settings -> Plugins window.

Shortcut

  • Create a new shortcut for Arma 3, or edit an existing one, and add @acre2 and @CBA_A3 to the -mod parameter.
  • Launch Arma 3 through the shortcut you created.
  • ACRE2 will try to copy the plugins to your TeamSpeak 3 installation directory. A pop-up will appear describing what the process did.
  • Launch TeamSpeak 3 and assure the ACRE2 plugin is enabled in the Settings -> Plugins window.

Configuration

You can configure ACRE2 features to your needs. ACRE2 uses the CBA Settings System, accessible via the in-game configuration. This applies to server, mission and client settings.

Server administrators can get available settings using the export/import features. The options then need to go into CBA's userconfig or an addon. Server settings can be configured to override specific mission settings.

Troubleshooting

  • WARNING: ACRE IS NOT CONNECTED TO TEAMSPEAK!
    Make sure to launch both Arma 3 (Steam) and TeamSpeak 3 as admin, or neither.

  • Radio beeps not audible on dedicated server
    Make sure your server.cfg has "b64" whitelisted in allowedLoadFileExtensions[] and allowedPreprocessFileExtensions[] if you are using that. Let your server administrator know if you have no idea what this means.

  • Insufficient client permissions (failed on i_channel_needed_subscribe_power) This does not affect ACRE2's functionalities. The ACRE2 TeamSpeak plugin will subscribe to all channels in the TeamSpeak server, and if the TeamSpeak server contains any channels which have a higher i_channel_needed_subscribe_power value than what the client is granted then TeamSpeak will throw an error.
