The missions come in a seperate download!! Please scroll down to find the link!
Dedicated to Planck, you are deeply missed!
The Cold War Rearmed² modification is a community project to bring the missions, islands and other content of the ever
popular Operation Flashpoint into ARMA 2.
This public beta contains all Units, Weapons, Vehicles and Objects from the original Operation Flashpoint.
But please be aware that this is NOT the final release, there will be bugs big and small.
The main reason for this beta release is to get bug reports from you and feedback in general.
Please do not send suggestions for more content as we have no plans now to add anything else to the Mod.
Besides the content from the previous Demos it contains the following:
* BRDM-2 (thanks hcpookie)
* General Guba, Angelina (thanks LODU)
* M2A2 Bradley
* Mini (Retextured Lada)
* Colonel Guba (Officer with blue Beret) - used in Resistance campaign
* New AT Launcher Magazines "cwr2_CarlGustavRocket_DP", "cwr2_AT4Rocket_DP", "cwr2_LawRocket_DP", "cwr2_RPG75Rocket_DP", "cwr2_RPG7Rocket_DP"
* Russian Patrol Boat (thanks hcpookie)
* Sports Car (aka Hatchback and Sedan)
This Beta version is more or less a final release, which gets at least a monthly update. For those who are interested in getting the latest fixes and help us testing, you can find 'nightly' builds here.
For those who prefer to have complete packages, we may provide one Beta Release per month which then contains all previous bug fixes.
As before, this is a complete new package! Please make sure you have removed all previously installed CWR² Mod folders!
All of the previously released files are no more required or horribly outdated.
Everything you need to play is in below Downloads.
1) Remove all previous Demo 4 content (if present)
2) Remove all previous SP/MP Missions and the Demo campaign
3) Download and install CWR² Public Beta
4) Download and install the optional content if wanted
See the included readme in the CWR² Documentation folder for install instructions.
The readme also contains important informations for mission designers.
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.
When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.
For Steam users, right-click on your Operation Arrowhead game and choose "Properties". Click "Set launch parameters" and paste that parameter into the text field that opens.
Arma 2 CWR 2: Anti-tank launcher sights: Misha wrote a small guide how to use the Anti-tank launcher sights in the Cold War Rearmed² modification on the Comrades in Arms forum.
See the included classnames folder which contains all used class names as text files.
Give Mikeros cwr2ofp a try when editing/converting old OFP missions. It could save you a lot of headache trying to find the correct replacement classname!
How to use our islands without the Mod:
Copy the below files from the CWR² Demo into a new Modfolder, e.g. cwr2_islands:
cwr2_intro.pbo (Desert Island)
cwr2_intro_data.pbo (Desert Island)
You are NOT allowed to port this Mod (or parts of it) to Arma 3!
We do not make exceptions, so don't even bother to ask!
