DVC Campaign Prob
« on: 11 Mar 2003, 21:42:16 »
In the review it is hyped several times that "this mission does not require any addons"...

Beg me differ...

At the end of the 2nd mission OFP informs that "cannot load mission. Missing addon: marine_m16"

So i went and checked the third missions .sqm and heres something I found in it:

   addOns[]=
   {
      "marine_m16"
   };
   randomSeed=11424259;

.....

            class Item6
            {
               position[]={2728.295654,88.969254,4957.096680};
               id=26;
               side="WEST";
               vehicle="Marine_M16";
               player="PLAYER COMMANDER";
               skill=0.200000;
               text="aP";
               markers[]={};
            };
            class Item7
            {
               position[]={2730.295654,88.933250,4957.096680};
               id=27;
               side="WEST";
               vehicle="Marine_M4";
               player="PLAY CDG";
               skill=0.826678;
               markers[]={};
            };
......

So IMO it's obvious that some marine addon is infact required... But absolutely not a clue what that might be...

Has anyone encountered this problem or do I just have some FU version of the campaign?  ???

I had the same problem as HateR. Really liked the first 2 missions. Where does this addon live?

Hallo,

Big Ups, it seems this Addon was maybe left on my computer from some other review (I did not find any problems). Very sorry for this. I already changed the Review and will search for this AddOn. (I cleaned up my OFP  one week ago  :(
The Author does not mention any AddOns are required in this Readmes which come with the mission.  I have already contacted him.

I deeply sorry for the problems my review caused.

With best Regards
Kuro

 ;)¨No harm done Kuro...

Maybe my post could have been interpeted as an accusation but not ment as one...  :P

As for me, I always tend to check the .sqm of almost every SP mission I dl since OFP (at least in the past...) used to have a "bug": if you for example tested some AddOn in yer mission and happened to save the mission in making and after that decided not to use the AddOn and removed it from the map, it still remained in the .sqms AddOn list...

Haven't checked that if this "bug" exists post 1.46 era...

Oc as an reviewer that check-the-sqm method might be too time consuming...

So once again, didn't mean to accuse anybody...
Keep up the good work...  :thumbsup:

Hallo.

i do not see it as an accusation. More as a lesson learned: "Never thrust the Readme, test and check it yourself". Normally i do a quick look in the Mission.sqm, especially in mission i give a low score, to be sure i have not missed something. (With the great random settings it is possible to make a mission which changes every 10th time you play).
But DVC went so smoothly and looked so good, i was blended. BTW i now checked the .sqm of the old DVC Campaign (also on OFPEC). And the third mission does not contain this addon. Also i did not recognize any "special" AddOn Units. I checked the mission.sqm and it looks like they are just the "Marine" Version of normal soldiers. So if someone has time ( i will do so on the weekend), replace the marine with the normal units and the mission is AddOn Free again.

Greetings
Kuro
