  1. On my server when I tried to load it it up it flashes to load out screen and states UK 3cb_c130j doesn’t exist do you know what that means as I can’t run my server

  2. Interesting. We do not have a C130 in our pack. What other mods are you running? My guess is its either a compatibility issue with another mod or an issue in the mission file. Can you check if the class 3cb_c130j exists in your mission?

    1. Well weird it’s telling me that it’s missing and all my mods are on my server and installed on my SSD so I don’t seem the issue is it something that has got lost for some reason

  3. Very nice vehicle set! But there is a problem with the Land Rovers:
    The rear shaft has 2(!) wheels on each side. When replacing them as repair, you are unable to replace the second one. (Ace-Menu items “remove wheel” and “change wheel” are overlapping and you can’t reach “change” for the second).

  4. I cant seem to get BAF to work on my server, what is the right way to upload it to my GTX server? I copied the files from my computer that Arma 3 uses (the mods folder). Is there a right way to do it?
