Alright fellas I am really enjoying this converted mod now. One thing though I use deadfast's old 3rd person viewer for Arma2, but it doesn't seem to work in IronFront 44 Arma2 mod.  Has anyone got it to work?  If so how did you do it.  Thanks

Assuming you have it installed correctly where did you install it and whats the mod format @mod/addons?
How is it setup in your target line?, and are you running the 3 cba's the mod requires?

I have it setup on a target line.  The mod format is @mod/addons.

"E:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2oa.exe" -nosplash -mod=@I44CO_DDay;@CBA;@SLX;@RUG_DSAI;@31stWWA2;@okt_NoBlur;@WarFX_Particles_Beta_1.41;@UNS;VTE;@Wx_WW2;@dfs_3rdperson;@bet_addons_1.47;@bet_huertgen_1.11;@43rd_Wessex_Div;@IF_Other_Addons;@IF  <----Doesn't work with this setup

"E:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2oa.exe" -nosplash -mod=@I44CO_DDay;@CBA;@SLX;@RUG_DSAI;@31stWWA2;@okt_NoBlur;@WarFX_Particles_Beta_1.41;@UNS;VTE;@Wx_WW2;@dfs_3rdperson;@bet_addons_1.47;@bet_huertgen_1.11;@43rd_Wessex_Div <-----It works without -->

Ok few things:
1. your missing all needed CBA files which I44 also requires, so the cba u have is insufficient , you need @CBA;@CBA_A2;@CBA_OA
obviously you will not find that on armaholic which only has CBA_CO so I have the latest of those 3 get it here:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42601124/Arma2CO%20CBA.zip

2. Put @CBA;@CBA_A2;@CBA_OA first in your mod line so they load up first like this:
-mod=@CBA;@CBA_A2;@CBA_OA;@I44CO_DDay; other mods....

3. I would suggest not running multiple major mods at the same time.
the major mods you have here are:

Major mods that may conflict with each other
@I44CO_DDay
@SLX - (see my notes below on slx)
@31stWWA2
@IF_Other_Addons -(not needed as you have warfx which is aka Blastcore)
@IF - (iron front)
@UNS;VTE - (Vietnam)
@Wx_WW2

Gameplay mods
@RUG_DSAI
@okt_NoBlur;
@WarFX_Particles_Beta_1.41; (basically blastcore)
@dfs_3rdperson;

Launcher to launch multiple profiles http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=19582
it says for arma3 but it runs arma2CO np, as I use it for both IF and Arma3 when i play.

4. SLX
seen here under arma2 mods http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=7045
see the notes in red?
Quote:
Please note this contains many bugs!!
G√ľnter Severloh has reworked the SLX mod and released bugfree versions for both Arma 2 and Arma 2: Combined Operations

SLX for Arma 2 - A2SLX - Arma2 SLX
SLX for Arma 2: CO - COSLX - Arma2CO SLX

So for Arma2CO you want COSLX why because the original SLX mod had bugs in it, my mod COSLX is a recompiled version of that mod which removes the bugs.
Now if your going to use COSLX with IF or Iron front then its best to get IFWarMod which has COSLX in it see the release thread
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/ifwarmod-release-6390060?&trail=15

IFWarMod already has COSLX in it, it also has blastcore so you dont need
@WarFX_Particles_Beta_1.41 or @IF_Other_Addons

for this mod
@okt_NoBlur, turn of your post processing in the video settings to remove the blur in your game.
=================
Aside all this obviously your finding out that
@dfs_3rdperson isn't working with IF so, idk what to tell you other then dont run it with IF, really nothing to figure out
at this point in terms of that, unless you alter the mod to make it compatible, or use another addon that does something similar.

Lastly run WW2 mods separate from Vietnam, as you have different configs running in the game that could be overwriting each other.
Run the major mods first before the small stuff in your target line.

I put it into code for ya, but glad you decided to edit the file for yourself an get it working.
I had figured it was a compatibility issue, but good job.
Use this tool for opening pbos http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=16369&highlight=PBO%2BMANAGER
use this tool to create them: Eliteness.3.22.4.56.Installer.exe

Hmmm...  I tried DFast's 3rd person view version 2.0, but it doesn't seem to work in the current IronFront build?  Anyone able to get it to work?  If so how did you do it?  Thanks

Sorry, i tested with IFA3 Lite and had no issues, all you do is choose which profile you want, then go into that folder and
grab the @folder of the profile view you want and throw it into your directory.

Works for me full or Lite IFA3 versions even with IFA3WarMod, you probably didn't install it correctly.
So you got the zip, extracted it, then you see a bunch of folders with names, the names being different views you can use like ghost recon, ect,.
then if you open one of those folders one you chose, the mod of for that view is in there, you take that and move it to your directory,
have you done that, do you see that?

Also how do you know its not working? Its a 3rd person view mod, it just changes the angle when you go to 3rd person view.
You have @CBA_A3 when you launch the game?
