Colonel stagler released the first version of his 2014 Units Pack on the BI forums / [url=]Armaholic forums[/url].

    Quote :
    This pack includes ARMA 2 assets, updated with OA functionality, and some extras. I was inspired by recent current events (Ukraine Crisis) to create this pack.

    • ChDKZ troops with backpack proxies and improved textures, and extra classes (Asst. MG, Asst. AT, Engineer).
    • CDF troops with backpack proxies and improved textures, and extra classes (Asst. MG, Asst. AT, Engineer).
    • Russian Federation troops with backpack proxies, modern gear, improved textures, extra classes (Asst. MG, Asst. AT, Engineer), and added extra and updated vehicles (BMP-2 RU, T-72B3 T-90 w/ Thermal Optics).
    • Backpacks for all above factions.

Goliath86 released an updated version of his CorePatch, a config patch for Arma 2 OA, on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    I want to inform the community that I'm working on a simple config patch for Arma 2 OA. My objective is to correct all the errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63) show with the command line -showScriptErrors.

    This is still WIP cause first I have to find these errors and then try to correct them.

    If anyone know about some of these errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63), with no mods, show in-game with the command line -showScriptErrors, inform me in this thread and I will try to fix them.

    In earlier version I had fixed two common errors:
    1. The Functions Module error relative to the BIS_fnc_init variable not initialized;
    2. Some errors relative to the handleGear.sqf script, launched when entering in the gear menu or by clicking items in the gear menu.

    • Fixed 13 script errors on ARTY module.
    • Reorganized script files inside folders to reflect BIS original script folder format.

JTS released in our forums the pre-history of his Escape coop missions. 01: Escape, 02: Escape, 03: Escape and 04: Escape. This is, what happened 6 years ago...

    Quote JTS :
    This mission is based on the cut scenes. This is the pre-history of 01,02,03 and 04 Escape series. A lot of high-quality cut scenes and (I hope) a good story. Much shooting, deadly PSI-radiation and great atmosphere of the game. The mission has an inventory. You can use some medicines to heal you.

    • Fixed syntax and script errors
    • NV Goggles removed

JTS informed us he released an updated version of his Nametags script on the BI forums.
The archive contains both the singleplayer as well as the multiplayer version of this script.

    Quote :
    This is a nametags script. Despite the same colors as in mission 'Evolution' - this is my script.
    Made 2 examples - for SP and MP (for MP means, that names will be displayed only by players). You can change the colors. They are defined in local variable in the script. For now, it supports 30 players. You can change this if it's needed.

    • - Fixed syntax errors (Bad performance of the game).

Churrofighter has submitted a multiplayer campaign of three acts about the taking of a small island occupied by the People's Liberation Army in the East China Sea by a Marine expeditionary unit.

    Quote Churrofighter :
    On November 23, 2013, the PRC set up the 'East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone' which includes the Senkaku Islands.
    On December 6, 2014, the PLA invaded the island an set up an HQ-9A SAM battery, started to build a 3,000 ft runway and deployed an undisclosed number of Dong-Feng 21 (CSS-5) medium-range anti-ship ballistic missile.
    Since the islands are included within the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan, meaning that a defense of the islands by Japan would require the United States to come to Japan's aid.

      Day 1: MARSOC Raid - Operation Hydrographic Overpicture
      Day 2: Amphibious Assault - Operation Aggregate Premise
      Day 3: Air Assault - Operation Tangency Locker
