Thanks, Variable. This mission pack must have kept you guys busy for months! I wrote the above post thinking that the error was common, but it has only appeared in that one mission so far. I'm wondering about effects of the beta on ACE. ACE2 is final, I think, so one will have to live with any issues caused by the beta. There are so many issues fixed by CCP in the beta, I really don't want to go back to the 1.5 yr-old 1.62.

ACE2, and these missions, are very serious business. It's like playing a whole new game. But man does it take a long time to re-equip at an ammo crate. There are so many items, and packing the damn backpack takes about 10 min to equip 5 guys. There is another huge advantage of playing the missions in coop compared to SP; the coop boss can just order his men to rearm, and it takes about 1/5 the time! :-)

Did you see Fuiba's Thirsk Operations mission pack? And then there's sander's Trinity mission pack, which I just found about earlier this week.

We have completed all of Fuiba's work, Thirsk Versus campaign as well.
I must say Fuiba is the mission maker I look forward for his comeback the most. Fuiba if you are out there, give us a sign! :)

Aversus has the "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgMagazines" error as well. And I can safely say that it is essentially impossible to complete in SP on Veteran difficulty. That is mainly because team switching is completely bugged with ACE; more than half the time, after switching, no team unit can move, and/or some keys don't work properly (like space for select all squad members), so game must be suspended and reloaded.
And the AI are very bad at nailing the armor, especially with those disposable tube rockets.

Even without any ACE bugs, there are some missions in the Versus campaign that will be almost impossible to complete with on SP. You should join coop nights OMAC :)

Yes I should! :-D Playing all these COOP missions in SP is creating a permanent crease in my brain. Look at the elapsed play time in this shot, a real death march:



A very old problem with COOP missions in SP is shown in that shot, that tasks and score are not shown in debriefing if the original squad leader has died and you finished mission as another squad member.

The PMC Versus missions require razor-sharp reflexes to survive and win, unlike those of the poor AI squadmates. The other thing that kills SP play in COOP missions, even in vanilla A2CO +/- CWR2, is that, after team switching to a non-leader squad member, then back to leader, the other squad member will usually always have to be ordered to move and then regroup, or else he will stay frozen in place. This is not a huge problem in most COOP missions, but in PMC Versus ass-kickers with massive amounts of opfor, this kills immersion and makes things very difficult. So it is really an A2CO issue with COOP missions which is made worse by ACE, when even the player himself becomes stuck and immovable.

Here is another problem encountered when playing COOPs in SP, a problem that has made it all the way to Arma 3, but I only got around to posting it a month or so ago. I have not encountered this issue so far while playing the PMC Versus missions with ACE, but it is a common occurrence in A2CO and A3 COOPs.

Hi all and sorry for the "slight" delay. In case anyone is still reading this I had a little problem with my account, email and apparently brain activity - all sorted now, I hope.

I'd like to thank you all for your support and feedback, that is what keep a mission maker going!

I'm finally moving on to Arma 3 and hopefully we'll get some missions soon!
