W0lle submitted an updated version of his OFP Nostalgia Pack (CWR²).
Quote W0lle : This is a revival of the OFP Nostalgia Pack.
Back in 2001 a few talented people created the first OFP Missions using the demo content and a 3rd party mission editor – remember the game was not even released back then.
It was the time were mission editing people were real men and exploited the game in order to find out how stuff is done. ;-)
I have converted and fixed these missions so they can be used in CWR². Where possible I added playable slots for MP usage, see the list below for a list of MP compatible missions and their player slots.
Converting these missions was a pain because the previously mentioned editor created mission files which are no more readable by ArmA2. That means I had to fix the bugs manually, then imported the mission and then started working on them once the mission became stable.
I changed a few smaller things and scripts but I would say I reached the goal of keeping 90% of the original mission.
In this – probably final – update I’ve gone through all missions again and made a lot of big and small fixes and changes. While this may be the last update, please report critical bugs and I try to fix them asap.
Overview: In their very brief history of just seven years, the Selous Scouts won a fearsome reputation as the best and most effective bush soldiers in Africa.
The regiment acted as a combat reconnaissance force and accounted for 68% of all terrorists killed in the Rhodesian War - whereas the Scouts only suffered 36 own casualties.
Quote : The idea comes from when I was searching for any cloaking scripts in Arma 3 or 2. The best I could find was from this youtube video. Sadly, the video was from July, 2014, and the maker hasn't yet posted up the script for it. So I set out to figure out how to recreate it, because it's just awesome.
Ovenmit informed us he released an updated version of the SA58 which he ported from Arma 2 on the BI forums.
Quote : I have ported one of my favourite weapons from Arma 2. Everything seems to be working as far as I can see. New muzzle system is in place.
I may still tweak the config based on comments or my own findings. I plan to make a new texture too in a future release.
Added Joint Rail support
Although it will work without ASDG Joint Rails it is strongly recommended you have it.
Blazenchamber released a new update on the Armaholic forums about the Specialist Military Arms mod.
Quote blazenchamber : This is a weapons and attatchments addon that will feture some really cool and unique models to the game for everyone to enjoy.
We currently have 11 new weapons, 9 assault rifles and one sniper all with variants of each weapon.
Each will have custom ammunition and sounds.
Firefly2442 released an updated version of his Arma Mission Briefing Conversion tool on the BI forums.
Quote firefly2442 : Just a small program I put together for converting missions.
This program batch upconverts old OFP and Arma style missions to the new briefing system used in Arma2. It parses the briefing.html file and pulls out the appropriate sections and creates a briefing.sqf file. Debriefing is still kept and saved to a new briefing.html file.
It's mostly untested at the moment, although it seems to be able to run without any errors.
Hopefully this is helpful to someone who is nostalgic about all the great old missions that are out there. If anyone wants to add support to this program for converting from Arma2 to Arma3, I would certainly love to get a pull request on Github.
Made a couple of tweaks and improvements. Should be able to run on more missions now without failing.
