I did a clean install the other day with playwithsix [smile] had a few complications with avg running in the background, best bet is to disable for the install.

Hello,
I have experienced some weird errors trying to install this mod for Arma 3 with play with six, and also manually.
When I try to install @IFA3 via play with six, everytime it asks me to install it. Every time i try to launch the game. Then a PBO conversion pops out. When it finishes, or i try to force the launcher, Arma 3 loads the Iron Front menu textures, like, screenshots on load screens, the fonts, etc. but still, when i check in the editor i have nothing from IF, just the usual A3 content.
If i restart Play with six, it will reinstall the whole thing, nothing more will happen.
I also tried a manual install. The temp folder auto deletes itself when it finishes the conversion. Is it supposed to do that?
I tried the IF lite for arma 3, it works well.
I have nothing apart play with six open in the background, i have no idea of what could i do!

Help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

The problem with Play with Six is that we expect it to do everything right the first time. Reminds me of Windows Vista. Maybe Play with Seven will fix everything [cool]
Anyways, you still need Arma 2 for a few steps before running it on Arma 3. See if you have all the files in this post.

Well i hope there will be a Play With Seven xD
At the moment play with six is extremly heavy on my CPU, my pc freezes a lot when it's open.
By the way; yes, PW6 downloaded em, and activates em as well. I have all the Armas installed. I don't really know what could be the problem...
It might be something related to the conversion?
Thank you for the fast reply, though.

Alright, I tried one more time, and now... I see Ohama beach in the maps.
BUT! It's just an empty plain full of trees with bad textures and errors. No building at all. And some tank traps on the beach. That's all. What the heck [confused]

EDIT: Alright, lads.
I managed to understant what's going on: apparently the conversion autodeletes itself when its done, both ways on play with six, and manual.
Can someone help me out? I'm trying to make this work since a month.

Hi all
i know it's been some time since i posted but work has been a handful.
The other day using "play with six" i was able to get the Arma2 maps and IF to work,at last i can drive my T34 in a BIG city!!
But browsing the fórums i saw that in January a new weapons and uniforms "patch "had been released.Well i've just downloaded it and i can't get it to work,can anyone help?
I'm using the one that says that you DON'T need the patch (258 mb's). I am NOT using/starting IF with play with six-just starting with the STEAM "loader", i have tried putting the file contents in c:-programs (x86)-steam-steam apps-common-iron front-addons  and the same but finishing with "IF_Other_Addons".
Can someone guide me on this please!

Hi mate,

Putting the .pbo files/addons you downloaded into the "@if_other_addons" folder should have done the trick.
I would suggest patching your game so everything is up to date, I can't really see any other reason it wouldn't work.

What units etc did you download and from where?
The files you put into "@if_other_addons" have to be .pbo. 

Gunther also have a great website where you can find addons etc made by the community.

i downloaded the pack from this site actually,unpacked it and placed it in the folder. As the game is run on steam i imagine that it is patched to the latest versión.

Use this link http://www.missionrepository.com/

The link Barto listed might change because of the number at the end changes when a new file gets added to the site, in short
the number represents the total number of files being hosted.

Just make sure you have your Iron front converted for the arma2co version, if on steam as you mentioned,
make sure your arma2Co is patched for its latest versions.
really the new weapons and uniforms aren't based on any patch, the folder you have is titled

New Units and weapons

just put the @ sign in front of it like this:

@New Units and weapons

move to your arma2CO directory, and run it with
-nosplash -mod=@CBA;@CBA_A2;@CBA_OA;@IF;@New Units and weapons

Also such questions about for IFR mods belong on this thread:
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/iron-front-as-mod-in-arma-2-and-3-6685093
moving...

Hello Dakress, Welcome to IF Fan forums!
Yes the links broke a couple years ago, wont and cant be fixed, theres no longer access to that page, IFA3 Full version which was the converted version
where you needed our tool to convert your Iron front to a mod is no longer supported, either by Kju (developer) and or by me, as I had all the files required, patches, mods ect,.
and i no longer have them. Imo its not worth it either, theres errors, conflicts, and the conversion tool only works half the time so if you get issues and you will, theres a big chance that the tool did not convert your Iron front, trust me get IFA3 AIO Lite, see below:

Really what you wanted was this page my former tutorial:
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/gunters-full-conversion-ifa3-installation-tutorial-7751413?trail=15
but again i yanked all the files and deleted so no i cant help you or anyone else, and again imo its not worth the headache
for the mod you gain really nothing to the current version of IFA3.

Your best bet is to get IFA3_AIO_Lite.
IFA3_AIO_Lite is Iron Front in Arma3, AIO stands for all in one.

This version of IFA3 is the latest version of IFA#, and gets updated just about every month, its last update was v22,
so its had 22 updates since its release in 2015! [wink]But also you have alot of new content, sounds, fixes, compatibility with alot of other mods, and more then anything is Invasion 1944 mod from arma2oa which was to be released sometime back for arma3 is now in IFA3 because the devs for I44 have given the IFA3 team permissions to port their mod to IFA3.

I can go on and on with the features ect,. but heres what i recommend you do, read this page:
Statement on discontinued support for the IFA conversion (IFA3 FULL)
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/statement-on-discontinued-support-for-the-ifa-conversion-ifa3-full-8132193?trail=15

and this page which is the release thread for IFA3 Lite,
Iron Front in Arm3 LITE - preview versions
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/iron-front-in-arm3-lite-preview-versions-8114248?trail=15
this thread is just the one for this forum, not active at all, however all the devs, fans, ect,.
everyone basically goes to the BIS forums thread for any questions, screenshots, vids, updates, to the mod,

this thread is here:
https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/190809-iron-front-in-arm3-lite-preview-versions/

Download
for the download i would highly recommend to get the steam version which can be found here:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=660460283
a 1 button click install, for this mod you need 1 other mod:
- CUP Terrains_Core

Now if you want the manual install as in a zip file then your best bet is to go here:
http://ww2ina3.com/wiki/index.php?title=WW2_Download
Remember the file you want is this---> IFA3 AIO LITE
you still need Cup terrains_core tho, and that can be found on armaholic.

Hope that helps, any questions, or issues feel free to ask, or send me a pm.

Thank you Gunter Severloh for the long post^^
The problem I have is that i wanted to play IFA2 not IFA3 and I found no other way to play IFA2 than this one, but since the link doesn´t work anymore and you don´t have the files, I think have to to play IF without Arma 2CO :/ 
But thank you for your fast answer [biggrin]

If you have any troubles with the conversion process, post on that thread.
