Recommend some OPF/Res Campaigns.
« on: 04 Apr 2009, 17:57:50 »
Hello, recently (Over the past 1-2 weeks) I have been revisiting Operation Flashpoint and the expansion Resistance for the first time in 4 years. I noticed since the last time I played the user made campaigns/add-on's have dropped nearly to nothing. I found a few good campaigns (About 6-8) but for the most part they were very short. I am down to my last three campaigns which I already started playing days ago, so they will only last me so much longer. I found more campaigns than this but they were mostly dead ends, either the websites that had the downloads no longer existed or the add-on's website no longer exist. So I tried everything to find more campaigns/add-on's: I Googled search multiple OPF based topics and found slim pickings, I joined the Flashpoint1985 forums and asked for help and got very little help, and I searched Google again.

So can you guys please help me? I really want to find more campaigns to play but I have no idea where to search now. If you can help me please include links to the campaign itself and the add-on's required. If you guys really can't help me can you recommend a forum that has the knowledge to help me? Thanks.

Chris

Edit: For example I tried to download Yankee Stalker (http://www.ofpec.com/missions_depot/index.php?action=details&id=42) from your website and the links to the download didn't work. I was able to download Freya Island but when I had to download LSR DeRa (Delta Ranger 200) it sent we to a webpage that required a login. I used my screen name/password from this website and it denied me access. Again I tried Google search and only found dead links.

If you haven't already, get nominesine's incomparable Blue Skies I (needs the Tonali addons + BAS stuff). Haven't seen better in OFP or ArmA when it comes to storytelling and mission design. TEH best.

Wolfrug out.

Thanks Wolf that sounds like a fun campaign, but sadly those add-on links don't work.

we should make a list of these old addons the are not working. see if anyone has them downloaded and put them in the editor. i have an old cd disk that might contain some of these addons one of the that is missing is from KendoJs mission i reviewed mission snYper's Support Pack, any one have that?
admin could we set up a thread for missing addons or change the links.

Hey Chris~
Check this website:

OFP Filefront OFP & ArmA Downloads

there is a short list of campaigns but it's got some, you could check out there. You decide which is good.

Also there was this one campaign called "Mercury". It's a special ops campaign but I tried to search for it but didnt' find it, if I find it I'll send it to you..

Cheers,
NightJay

Here's a working link for the BlueSkies campaign:
Blue Skies on OFP.info
When you click the link, select English and it'll take you to the homepage. Click the link again and it'll take you straight to the page with the download link.

You should be able to find all the required addons on that website as well, if you use the search function.

Thanks for all the advice guys. NightJay, I have been to that website and downloaded most of those campaigns but I see at least 1-2 I am not familiar with so I will check them out. I will try downloading the add-on's for Blue Sky at the website Zipper recommended but if I remember correctly I wasn't able to find the add-on's for that campaign anywhere. On the other hand I have been searching for so many different add-on's I might be mixing up Blue Sky with another campaign. Schuler and Humphrey I would love if you guys can get some add-on's uploaded to a website where we can all use them, it seems over the past 3 years all add-on's/campaigns have been disappearing. Thanks for all your help guys I truly appreciate it, and if anyone else has more information please post it here since I am still actively looking. Oh and Schuler thanks for mentioning the CD back up, I think I will back up my downloads to a DVD when I am done. So I won't go through this search again.

**UPDATE**

It took a lot of patience and time finding/installing Blue Skies but I found the links and did the installation. When I start up OPF I get some error's now but if I hit ok and play the campaigns I have no problems, maybe I get these messages because I am running the WW4 mod? Anyway I decided to share the links with you guys for Blue Sky, the installation instructions ask for you to download some WWI Bi-Plane (Why would I need that?) but it was meant to run the the 1.91 patch not the latest 1.96 patch. I didn't install it and encountered no problems so far. Also while installing all these downloads I got another Campaign from BAS called Insurgency, which is great considering all the work I had to do installing the various add-on's. So here are the links:

BAS Air Weapons: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/Air_Weapons_Addon;34049

BAS Delta/Ranger Unit Add-On (I already had this add-on but included it for your convenience  ;)): http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/DeltaRanger_Unit_Addon;34045

BAS BlackHawk: http://nakedsquid.com/modules.php

BAS LittleBird: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/AMH6_Littlebird;15840

BAS Chinook/Kiowa: http://nakedsquid.com/index.php?name=Downloads&req=viewdownloaddetails&lid=7

BAS Pavehawks: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/BAS_Pavehawks;36439

BAS Tonal Island: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/BAS_Tonal_Island;34857

BAS Tonal Special Forces: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/;72706

Russian OPFOR Vehicles: http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/Russian_OPFOR_Vehicles;36438

General Barron Editor (Please note I didn't install this update since I have a newer editor): http://ofpec.com/ed_depot/index.php?action=details&id=157&game=OFP

**Edit**BIS Camel (I was wrong about this add-on, it is required in later missions. I couldn't install this program since it isn't compatible with Patch 1.96. So I did some searching and found a WWI mod which has the BIS Camel add on in it's files. Download the file, and look in the add-on file. You will see the BIS Camel just add it to the add on folder in your OPF Directory and you will be set. I just installed the BIS Camel pbo file since the rest of the add on's are not needed for Blue Skies): http://operationflashpoint.filefront.com/file/WW1_Mod;92090#Download


************* Admins if you are reading this please add these important links to your download section so people in the future can easily find these downloads, thank you.

Regarding your though upon uploading addons Chris. This website use to have a bunch of addons I recall correctly, but where did they all go? 

Yeah the addon depot needs attention, I agree. :)

Guys just to give you an update, the BIS Camel add on was a necessary add on. Since the BIS Camel installer isn't compatible with patch 1.96 I looked for a work around and discovered it. You have to download a WWI mod pack (Which is 117 MB). You do not need to install all the add-on's just the BIS Camel PBO file. After I did that I was able to play the mission. If you go back to my last post (With all the add-on links) you will see I updated my post on the BIS Camel and inserted a link to the WWI mod pack.

@ Chris-PA- thanks man, the problem is the links get old and somehow disappear. its just one of those things, this is a community site and your help is really appreciated :D

Yea isn't that odd? I would think the downloads would live on forever on various download websites, it's not like these add-on's stay on only one website. Once I am done playing through OPF and the various add on campaigns I will be backing up everything to a DVD. I want more people to contribute to this thread so I can archive these great campaigns and add-on's. By time I am done I hope to fill up one whole DVD, or nearly 5 GB of campaigns/add-on's. I am around 1.5 GB now.

If you look at my screen name you will see my E-Mail address, it's very likely I will use this E-Mail address for years to come (Unless I move, which is unlikely). If anyone wants these downloads in the future I could upload them somewhere for the people to download, just contact me. Or contact me through AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) I am always on and I will probably use this screen name for life.

Regarding your though upon uploading addons Chris. This website use to have a bunch of addons I recall correctly, but where did they all go? 

Yeah the addon depot needs attention, I agree. :)

I don't know the admins need to get on this. Tell me, Bohemia made successors to Operation Flashpoint what are they called? I might just upgrade since the OPF community seems to be moving on after all these years.

NightJay0044 i guess we just fix them as they are found, but someone reported snYper's Support Pack link not working and i cant find a link, we might need to upload it if someone has it hidden in their downloads some where, i cant find my old back ofp addons disk.

Damn that sucks. Know of anyone else that has archived this data? Please keep on looking I want to play more campaigns.

Download the BIS Camel from this link at GamePark (biscamelv1.zip  4.62 Mb).

That contains the BISCamel.pbo and readme, but not the SP / MP missions, without the annoying installer.

Thanks for that link Snake Man I will check it out. Also thank you for that BIS Camel.pbo file, I already installed the add-on but that should be helpful for people looking for it.

So any other suggestions guys?

Retaliation: Peacekeeper

A very good campaign that follows the original story, but from a soviet perspective.
No addons required.

We actually have a couple of campaigns in our OFP missions beta thread that you may be able to help provide some feedback on if your willing of course. Imutep has 2 of them there...one is a WW2 type and the other is an Modern Afghan type, both have hefty addon downloads but seem to promising. Just a thought.

  Ive always wanted to check out an OFP D-day invasion mission but never found a working link to one.  I've wanted to see a spawn and delete body script in play.

  Same with any decent BH Down style ones.  I know they are popular but all the links I find are dead.

Yes that's like the old 7 days free websites for uploads, I hate it when that happens!

That's a tuffie, here has to be some out there, (someone will come along and give you a link) I don't or cant remember anyone with or has done a good mission on that. some campaigns might have parts of that, and I think they where years ago, I did a bit of a search, and nothing hit me that you might want. Someone should make a nice Omaha beach mission with a wwII  addon

Our Addon Staff might be able to help you. Or you could create a mission yourself!!!

Same with any decent BH Down style ones. While its hard to do, it realy happened and making a mission that lives up to that or the movie is hard.  
This here I haven't played yet but it scores a 8 by our reviewer. You've crashed behind enemy lines with a Chinook.

  I'll check out that mission.  Man it sure is nice still getting help on a game this old.  

  I had a issue with Blue Skies that took me a while to fix.  I had to add te Editor102 to the specific mod, it didnt carry over from the default Res folder like the other units did.


  I looked in the ED for a delete body script but couldn't find one.  I'll play with some respawn ones though.
