Hint: You find the download in the left navigationbar.

Once you have downloaded and installed YomaTools, add a new server with following data:

Server name: OAC Project

Server url: http://oac.quest-link.net/updater

Press Download all mods to get all files, missions and campaigns (large button on the lower right).

You can also have a look at the different packages by clicking on in the

Required packages to run OAC:

  • @ace_islands\addons
  • @oac\addons
  • dta\userconfig

Detailed process description

Here is a step by step guide.

Please head over to the OAC forum if questions remain.
