View Full Version : iron front update

03-22-2017, 11:16 PM
Preview v18 - 2017-03-22

Added: I44 US tanks (M3 and M5 Stuart tanks, M3A4 76 and HVSS Shermans, M4A4 Firefly VC Sherman and M8 Greyhound) by Invasion 1944 team!
Added: new sniper scopes by Lennard!
Changed: replaced PPSh41 magazine switch system to an improved and generic system thanks to Kerc!
Improved: scripted systems are no longer limited to LIB infantry classes (empty magazine ping, bazooka backblast, rifle grenades, rocket dispersion, throwing/shrapnels).

finally more tanks for the allies, time to make the liberation mission as the allied side.
The dev team has gotten permission to use the old Invasion:1944 assets so hopefully we will get another map the size of the staszow one to freshen things up too

Kick ***! Have you heard any word on Iron front being updated for the 64-bit Executable?

04-05-2017, 10:50 PM
going to see what I can get going this week Vancer! Have not heard about updates for the 64 bit yet. But personally can't wait for 64 bit Arma 3! (IMO Should of been released at release)

Arma is 64 bit now. There were problems initially with ifa3 and 64 bit, i think theyve been resolved.

Hey, quick question. When Im flying around in 1st person, the audio goes static if I go to fast. Is this the result of the graphics trying to sync with the audio? How do I resolve it?

08-19-2017, 02:21 AM
it hasn't been updated since sept 2015 but I was wondering if anyone is still using LIB DLC 1 lite ? I don't have it loaded but then I saw it on the list of unloaded mods, which is getting quite long, and I wondered if I need it at all.
