This is an old release so I have re-enabled the pages we had of your work (I never deleted them but simply made them unavailable).


However, I still need to upload it but seeing the file size that will take a little of course ;-)

Vietnam: The Experience multiplayer is ON again :-D

For two days now we have been playing and the server runs good. So join us. Server name: VIETNAM: The Experience (VTE) on PMC Tactical

You need latest VTE v1.4 + XEH/CBA.

When we last time played we used the old(?) XEH v0.7.6 but now I believe we use full CBA from dev-heaven page which is v0.8.3. Sorry but I'm confused as you are regarding CBA/XEH stuff :-[

If you download VTE from http or torrent and build mod dir manually, you need to get the xeh/cba thing to work, if you use Play With Six, then all you need to do is Install/Upgrade VTE and click Join.

Downlaoded, played, loved.

One thing though. The campaign delivered with the addon (Australians in the Jungle) seems to fail at the first mission.

I get instracted via Helo with a 4man squad, to rescue a patrol of Australians which hae no RTO. Whenever i reach the 'Find the Team' waypoint, the 3 Aussies do join my squad, but i don't get the task as fulfilled.

Also, when i try to mount the PBR boat which is meant to extract us, the boat won't start and the mission does not end.
In addition, these Boats are designed for 1 Driver + 1 Gunner + 6 Passengers. When i rescued the Aussies, my sqaud cosntist of 7 people, so am i meant to leave one behind? :D

Any solutions on solving this, i really 'd like to see the other missions aswell. (By the way, using a script that simply sets the mission to succeded ending wont bring me further, the same mission starts again rather than the next one starting).

-------
Other than this i noticed a few vehicle textures seem to be buggy. Two artillery vehicles, i do not exactly remember which one, and the 117, look absolutely the same, and have only a LOD texture aswell as the bulldozer and soem other cheind veicles. I'll get the names lateron and post 'em here. is this a bug, or intendet / not yet finished textures?

I'll look into the first mission in that campaign. BTW does endmission cheat also not complete this mission? (SHIFT and keypad minus, then type endmission).

Many of the artillery models are placeholders at the moment. They hopefully get replaced with better models.

Thanks for the feedback, appreciated.

No Problem and thanks for taking a look.

I love the overall feeling of the mod extremely, so it'd be cool if these missions could be repaired ASAP, about the Atillery, i am fine as long as they work. - I also got a few suggestions for your VTE-Server, but since this has nothing to do with the Mod itself, i might aswell PM you about this?

I can't promise anything, but I'll try to take a look at the campaign mission(s) today.

Yes PM is fine by me.

Edit: I tested the mission on editor (not actually played through in the campaign) and it ends when you get near that extraction marker, the area is not very large so you need to move very very close to that marker.

Edit 10-02-12: New screenshots added to our VTE ArmA 2 Screenshots page from our MP sessions.

Edit 10-04-12: New youtube video

Well, after figuring out a few of the 'issues' i had, i have to admit, this is an amazing Mod, and especially since the MP server is up and running, we had some really nice sessions on there.

I'd also like to present some MP Session Videos to spice up your appetite.

Here, we played a Mission where our Objective was, to defend the Plei Me SF Camp against incoming Viet Cong.
The fact that 'we' were only a 6-8 Man SEAL Team and the Vietcong were like 200, approaching from all directions, plus the advancing Darkness (rendering Flares neccesary) made this an unbeliveable hard task to accomplish, especially since we were out in the Open with little cover, while our Enemies were able to use the forests to their advantage.


-------------------

This shows the most-played and most immersive Gamemode played on the VTE Official. 32 Targets COOP with Random Enemies.
32 Different Targets are present, ranging from FOB's, whole SF Bases down to little LZ's and villages, or strategic Points such as Hilltop in the Jungle.

Here you can see: a USM PBR Boat assault on a Beach Objective, the new Ah-1 Cobra Gunship in the J-Version with wire-guided TOW Missiles, the Firepower-rich ACH-74 Chinook Gunship, with 20mm Cannons, FFAR Pods, Grenadelaunchers and 5 Mounted Heavy MG's with HE Ammo, and Finally a SEAL Paracute insertion from a C130 into the dense jungle.


-------------------

In the Most recent Video, you can observe some Mechanized Infantry Action where we advance & secure various objectives as a Infantry Team backed up by a M113 (ACAV Model). You also get to see some Birddog-Plane reconnaisance and finally some CAS, but this tme from the Grounds Point of View. A well-placed Mk82 in the right moment can save lifes.

Vietnam: The Experience Multiplayer Event. Friday, October 19th, 2012.

Our previous VTE MP event was on May 23rd, 2009. and it got us 26 players. Then there was the PMC 10th Anniversary MP event (with default ArmA 2) which was total failure. It was time for new VTE MP event since so many guys already joined our server on daily basis.

For me personally the event started server time 1951hrs and finished 0630hrs (official starting time 20:00 UTC).

When I joined it was way ahead of schedule (I believe 1651hrs UTC), but it was my plan all along. There was three guys playing at that time.

Was very surprised and happy to see my old friend lwlooz from good old OFP times to join, you can always count on lwlooz to save PMC MP events! :)

Other guys on the server were the new VTE players none of whom I recognized from ArmA times, in fact some of them (if I recall correctly) came through DayZ. Everyone was pretty much new to VTE at least in our MP community sense which started at ArmA.

When the event officially started at 20:00 UTC (2300hrs server time), we had exactly 11 guys online. We played couple of nice missions and everything went smoothly.

We peaked at 14 players joined at the same time. This is bit lower number than I was expecting considering the amount of advertisement we had and the average non-event nights usual player counts (5-8). I was hoping that we break our 2009 ArmA VTE event record of 26 players but no such luck.

We had great time playing though, as said everything went smoothly, missions worked fine and we even got to do lot of team work which is kind of surprising for such public gathering.

When lwlooz left at about 0240hrs we had 9 guys playing, soon after I had to eat for a moment and when I finished eating at 0310hrs we had 6 players. Finally the last guy dropped out at 0622hrs, I was around few minutes and then left exactly 0630hrs which was the official ending time of this event (technically).

During the event I took some screenshots and captured some video footage. Total 41min 49sec of raw video footage was captured which edited down to a 36min 34sec duration.

VTE MP Event Screenshot: 11 players and 14 players.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in our Vietnam: The Experience Multiplayer Event, it was really fun playing with you, thank you!
