OFP Nostalgia Pack (CWR²)

by
W0lle


Description:
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.

Installation:
Simply unpack the "Missions" folder into your ArmA2 installation folder. No files will be overwritten.
After unpacking the archive, there is a new folder/entry called "OFP Nostalgia Pack" in your SP Missions folder/screen.
If you want to play the missions in MP, you need to copy/move the pbo files from "Missions" into "MPMissions".


Notes:
Compared to todays ‘standards’ these missions are pretty easy, some would call them even ‘crappy’ – usually there is no fancy scripting and effects stuff. However playing these missions gives you an idea how it was back then in Summer 2001 as the community was awaiting the first War Simulation from a once great Bohemia Interactive.


Credits & Thanks:
First off, all the people making these missions back in 2001.
Avon Lady for fixing the original missions for OFP and having them still downloadable until today.
Shuko for his Taskmaster script.
Kronzky for his Urban Patrol script.
Ghost for his helicopter insertion script.
Sander for testing the missions several times.
Mikero for his ‘fancy’ editing tools, they saved me a lot of grey hair.
Anyone else I forgot.
