这个方法仅仅针对,飞机 ,坦克和武器 地图
Since BIS has shown their supportive official position
regarding the content forward porting, I decided, I'd share a little script which, I hope, will help to start the ball rolling.
The idea is based on this video
although with some modifications. The script works with both Steam and
non-Steam installs. What it does is basically it copies some (not all -
as some just do not work) files from your existing Arma 2/Arma 2:
Operation Arrowhead install into the Arma 3 Alpha.
This script ports Islands, Vehicles (air/cars/armor/...) and weapons.
Everything is working to some extent, though there are some bugs of
Open the included cmd file with notepad++ to see what this script does and how it does it or view it here
Here's how to use it:
- Write down the locations of the root folders of your games (ArmA 2,
ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead, ArmA 3). Note on which drives the games are
located. For the script to work correctly, ArmA 2 and ArmA 2 OA must be
installed on the same drive (not necessarily in the same folder).
- Open the downloaded file with a text editor
- Put the game locations into corresponding variables (a2path, a2oapath, a3path)
- Create 2 empty modfolders (@something) on the same drive as your
ArmA 2/A2OA installation (in my example, everything is on drive D). Put
them into variables a2targetpath and a2oatargetpath respectively
- Launch the script. Voila!
This script works fast, as it creates hardlinks for files instead of
copying them. It is perfectly safe - and saves a lot of time and space.
is distributed as is and author claims no responsibility for any kind of
damage (including legal, physical, economical or any other kind) which
may result from its use.
The only note is that you need to put the vehicles as "empty" and move pilots inside by scripting - if you want AI vehicles.
