Hey Sui! ;D
I had a spare hour and felt like playing this mission.. So I did. Intro:
The Russian Officer on the hill was facing the complete wrong direction when the camera showed him.
There's a part where the AH-64 pilots say:
RTB is return to base, right? Or is it Returning to base? I dunno, just thought it looked weird.
The part that goes along the NATO base and shows the guys working on the truck.. For some reason the guy closest to the camera was kneeling down and fixing the empty air in front of the truck! (the guy behind him did look like he was actually working on the truck though) This could have been a one-time thing as I haven't watched that part a second time yet. Mission
First off, Avon (ma'am)
you were definately correct! The bmps that come from the West side most surely have rockets!
I saw them in action plenty of times tonight.. Saw the missles coming from them through my binocs!
I took the town pretty easily, got a little lucky I think.
Then after it blacked out and back in, the battle had already begun!
A bmp from the west was shooting at us!
After he got taken care of, the battle started about 3-4 minutes after that. (I thought it might not happen, but it did)
I saved it at a great place when BMP's were heading in from the West and the T72's were just starting in from the South... Which is a really good thing because I retried at that save point about 8 times.
I noticed the "invisible weapon" problem after retrying the first time.. The FN-FAL was there... but it was invisible!
I had many hardships and got killed in many ways...
BUTT... :moon:I FINALLY BEAT IT!!
*Asmo does a happy dance around the forum*
I never thought I'd be able to do it!! Almost gave up a couple times.. And then it hit me! (no, not a bullet, grenade, rocket or SABOT this time
) I had finally found the key to beating this mission!
(I won't spoil it for others, but I'll IM you Sui)
Once I found this out, I just had to get lucky just a little bit and I had beaten it! ;D
I noticed there's no Outro-Win... What up with that?
I did restart it after winning and it gave me an error! So I rebooted and tried again, it worked, then I went and shot the LT (who was literally in
the building.. http://home.earthlink.net/~asmodeus777/officerbuilding.jpg
) to see the outro-lose..
And boy am I glad I did!
Quite stunning work Sui! :thumbsup:
Here's a screeny I just had to take:http://home.earthlink.net/~asmodeus777/facilerocket.jpg

And an "overview" type pic that I thought looked kinda cool:http://home.earthlink.net/~asmodeus777/facileground.jpg
A very enjoyable mission Sui! ;D I'm gonna go recover from typing this long post as you will probably have to after reading it.
P.S> Comments about the "backblast" script...
1. It's freaking awesome!
2. How much do I have to bribe you to use it?
3. Were any Llamas harmed in the making of it?
