Scat Posted February 15, 2016 Share Posted February 15, 2016 (edited) And by beginners i mean people that have never used any arma 3 mods again like me and/or its their first days in Arma 3.I will try to provide some instructions on basic stuff that got me confused in the beginning. So , the procedure to join and enjoy EU3 is : -Register in the forums.-Activate the account in your email.-Follow THIS GUIDE to download all the mods u need to play in EU3.-Once you are done , close ts3 and arma 3.-Set Ts3 and Arma 3 run as administrator.-Open ts3 , Go to Settings->Plugin Options.Select ACRE2 and click settings.Max out the sound volume.-Close ts3.-Read the rules.-Read the rules Again.-Read these to get a generic idea of how things work:http://www.ahoyworld.co.uk/topic/4846-acre-topic-thread/http://www.ahoyworld.co.uk/topic/4074-how-to-ace3-medic/-Open Ts3 and Arma 3 (as admin).-Join EU3 in a basic kit like Rifleman or Assistant rifleman.Windows key + Control opens the interactions menu.Use the earplugs when there is chopper noise.Control+Alt+Caps brings up the Radio.On the top of your radio u will see the Antenna on the left, the radio channel button in the middle and the volume control on the right.Use Left and Right mouse buttons to switch between channels and volume.You should be on your squads channel by default.If not , open up your map and zoom out.You will see the channels for each squad marked there. Use the Radio (Arma 3 VoN feature , CAPS LOCK) to communicate with your team.Use the TS3 Button for Direct communication aka those who are nearby.If i am not mistaken voice will fade out the more away you get from your mates.Hills,trees,valleys etc will affect the Radio Signal and your Voice volume. When people die or are out of hearing range, they get muted . Keep in mind that TS3 Push to Talk button and Arma 3 one should be different.Arma 3 default key is CAPS LOCK. Escape -> configure -> controls and on almost bottom right u will see an option saying "configure addons".This is where your mods keybindings are located.In the middle bottom of your screen u will see a new interface.Thats the ShackTac.There u can see your squad mates in relation to you.Each circle represents a different distance.Look this out.Oh and the one shown there with the diagonal line is your Squad Leader.Thats all i can think for now.At some point i will update it with more info on map reading etc.Feel free to post more tips - instructions in the comments and i will update the post.Edit 1: Added a few info about ACRE the Radio addon Edited February 17, 2016 by Scat Read the rules for a 3rd time Plant1ing, TheToxicPixels, Ryko and 5 others 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
