It has been nearly 1 year, since the A.C.E. Advanced Combat Environment Mod, for ArmA 1, was released.Since that release, we have been constantly working on our Mod, to improve it, expand it, and fix the things we could.In the meantime, ArmA 2 has been released for about 6 months, and our attention has been on the mod for ArmA 2, for at least that long.Today we would like to announce our Public Beta Release.We intend to keep updating our Mod on a daily basis in this Public Beta stage.We do this to get as much feedback and bug reports as possible, as soon as possible, and provide everyone the latest code to test.This means the development will be ongoing, new improvements and additions will arrive as we go.What is A.C.E. and what is it notA.C.E. for ArmA 2 is a full conversion mod and is based on A.C.E. for ArmA 1, which was based on WGL for OFP.The WGL roots were "When realism matters". We lifted this already a little bit with A.C.E. 1.And with A.C.E. 2 it is no different. We try to keep a balance between realism and gameplay. We try not to sacrifice either in name of the other.We try to please as many as possible, but it is simply impossible to please all.Please feel free to give constructive feedback on our choices.The PackageThe A.C.E. Package for ArmA 2 consists out of 3 building blocks:
CBA: Community Base Addons ACE: Core ACEX: eXtrasCBA and ACE are a requirement, while ACEX is an optional expansion pack.This way, we hope to support our users who have requested smaller mod size, and ability to concentrate on their type of units/vehicles/weapons for countries they like to play with/against.Note:We will only host the milestone releases! This means to keep your ACE install up to date you should use the provided update tool.More information how to use it can be found on the download page!On our download pages you can find a link to the .rsync folders for each ACE mod file as well. This means you can download the mods simply by using the download links at the bottom of the page. But it also means if you wish (and you really should) to update your ACE beta to the latest version you just download those .rsync files, extract them and put it in your @ACE or @ACEX mod folders. After that you can use the Six Updater tool to update!Videos showing ACE 2 features:
