Invasion 1944 - D-Day
by
Invasion 1944


Description:
It would take up far too much space to list everything in this release, or to provide the classnames here, so we'll keep this restricted to a brief summary:
    Soldiers
      German and US ground forces - (FsJ, Heer and W-SS for the Germans), (Army and Rangers for the Americans)
      We left out the US paratroopers as we feel that "chapter" has been done to death since Medal of Honor in 2002.
    Vehicles
      German and US armoured vehicles + variants
      Wheeled vehicles - such as the Willy's MB, Opel Blitz and M8 "Greyhound"
    Aircraft
      P-51
    Amphibious
      LCM and LCVP landing craft
    Other
      Ambient Environment objects - ships and aircraft for atmospheric purposes, not actually playable
      Campaign
      Converted BIS missions
      Custom music score
Installation:
First of all, remove the 1.0 mod completely. This "patch" is actually a re-release, so that you don't have to download two huge files with mostly outdated files in the 1.0 archive, but just one.

The mod was tested, and should work under both regular ArmA1, and the Queen's Gambit expansion.
Queen's Gambit is not required.
Right click the ArmA1 executable, and choose "Create Shortcut". Right click the shortcut you've just created and choose "Properties". On the "Shortcut" page, the "Target" field needs to be altered depending on what version of ArmA1 you're using.

Final patch for ArmA1:
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\arma.exe" -nosplash -mod=@I44
Beta patch for ArmA1:
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\beta\arma.exe" -nosplash -mod=@I44
Final patch for ArmA1: Queen's Gambit:
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\arma.exe" -nosplash -mod=DBE1;@I44
Beta patch for ArmA1: Queen's Gambit:
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\beta\arma.exe" -nosplash -mod=DBE1;@I44
More info about the use of modfolder can be found in our FAQ.
