Ok, so I haven't been on this site for ages, But I have an almost complete kick A%$ mission that I will post soon. If anyone has played my other missions you will know what to expect. Except this one is more refined and with no bugs except the savegame one (which there is a way around). This is a dynamic, multiple insertion/extraction anywhere on the island mission with loads of enemy, different types of objective & cool atmospherics.
This is a West Vs Guerilla mission where physical objectives arrive during gameplay BUT, what wins you the mission is inflicting casuatlies on the enemy.
What to expect:
Fast rope insertions,
Player or team member carries radio to call extraction, CAS or ARTY with HE rounds, smoke (GRAA addon allows for AI smoke blindness) & flares.
without your radio only TACBE (tactical emergency beacon) exists and extraction will come if needed.
Game set over many days and nights with reasonable time skips to simulate operation preparations. No time skip during insertion so you know to prepare for day or night mission.
AI radio (w/sound) calling contact grid refs. & GPS style map updates, plenty of radio chatter,
large choice of squad Load outs,
Platoon reinforcement, platoon support,
Enemy+friendly casualty counter,
Deleting of dead units with reasonable time lag to allow you to collect ammo e.t.c...
Spawning of enemy during 'fade to black' points to curtail lag and make it a smooth transition.
Set objectives and targets of opportunity,
A select few large addons which give the game a whole new atmosphere and very few small ones for coolness.
Addons will be supplied with mission in seperate zip so, you don't have to search for them or click loads of links to find a working download site.
COMMING SOON - Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SAVING THE GAME
Unfortunatley due to the constant spawning and deleting of units in this mission a same bug (continue.fps) existis peculiar to OFP. This means you cannot retry from a saved position after exiting the game.
BUT fear not here is the solution all be it a clumsy one.
10 easy steps....
1.First play the game
2.Save you mission with the soldier in the base
4.Goto the save file and make a copy, put the copy somewhere safe (i.e. anouther folder)
5.Go about your daily buisness
6.Open OFP, restart the mission from the begining
7.Save your mission again in the base
8.Pause game and ALT-TAB to windows
9.Take your safe copy (step 4) and replace the new savefile with the old one.
10.Hit the retry button and cross your fingers!
It Works trust me... since this game is long and is different everytime you play it will be worth it!
