Description

The GP-25 Grenade Launcher can equip smoke grenades of different colors. When trying to equip the red, green, or yellow smoke ammo, the following message is received depending on which color you choose. The ammo can be equipped, but no image appears in the Gear inventory dialog.

Red
Picture \ca\weapons\data\equip\m_40mmhpred_ca.paa not found.

Green
Picture \ca\weapons\data\equip\m_40mmhpgreen_ca.paa not found.

Yellow
Picture \ca\weapons\data\equip\m_40mmhpyellow_ca.paa not found.

I checked the weapons.pbo file in <root>\Common. The paa files do not exist. I also checked config.bin file of weapons.pbo. For each of the rounds they have the entry as above. The config.bin file is looking for files that do not exist.

I looked into the M203 grenade launcher as it is a very similar weapon. It also has the different color smoke ammo. For the M203, there are no "picture" entries for the colored smoke ammo. By inheritance, it uses the same picture as the regular smoke ammo.

It looks like the picture entries for the GP-25 smoke ammo needs to be removed so that it uses the default image as does the M203.

You said version 1.08 - that's a2.
Common folder is only available for OA.
I believe you mean OA only, right?

Updated by Moekazi over 3 years ago

I have OA installed, but i am running original ARMA (arma.exe), not ARMA OA (armaoa.exe). The people i usually play with have not purchased OA, yet. They were also experiencing the error.

If Common is only available to OA, then i'd have to believe it exists in both versions. I noticed it while playing original.

I just checked weapons.pbo in the AddOns folder and it has the same entries with no corresponding .paa files. Not sure if the one in AddOns is used for original or not. If you let me know where the weapons.pbo for original ARMA is, i can check it for you.

To duplicate this error, go into the Editor of either ARMA 2 or ARMA OA.

1) Create an infantry unit
2) Set as player
3) Put this in the Init: this addMagazine "1Rnd_SmokeRed_GP25"
4) Preview
5) Press G key to open gear
6) The error pops up
7) Look at the ammo for sidearms. Normally there are transparent magazines showing empty slots. The first slot will be entirely blank. That is the red smoke round. Selecting this magazine slot allows normal interaction, e.g. Drop.

I take that back. I had done the above in ARMA 2 and it worked as i described. I just did it in the ARMA OA, and it is working properly. There is no error, and there is a picture for the smoke round.

This only seems to affect original ARMA 2.

Thanks. This is fixed in OA though - pretty sure BI will not fix this for a2.
