Hi all, I created five missions for you all to play cooperatively with your friends! These missions are my first attempt at any serious missions for ArmA 2, and also my first released missions for ArmA 2 aswell.

Chickenfeed's Coop Pack #1
by
Chickenfeed


Description:
Mission pack containing five coop mission:
  • [COOP-4] A Dish Served Cold = Perform a revenge attack on Takistani insurgents.
  • [COOP-5] Clear Skies = Sneak into an enemy controlled area and destroy two AA radars.
  • [COOP-5] Sky Raiders = HALO into an enemy camp, eliminate a Takistani officer, grab any intel, and kill a possible Warlord.
  • [COOP-9] First Response = Answer a distress call from a Czech motorized patrol and protect them until help arrives.
  • [COOP-10] Mortar Life Than This = Assault an insurgent held town, and secure three mortar sites.


Installation:
Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\MPMissions folder.


Known issues:
It's 99.9% likely that these missions will be very bugged, or may not function correctly. This is due to my noobish skills at mission editing, and my complete confusion for scripting of any kind. Please, try them all, enjoy yourselves, and contact me with your thoughts or suggestions!


Changelog:
v1.1
- Removed sneaky "hifi_m320.pbo" dependency that was causing problems.
- Should now only need Operation Arrowhead, though I still recommend Combined Operations!

I can only get three of them to work...

    [COOP-4] A Dish Served Cold
    [COOP-5] Clear Skies

will not run on my server, however the other three are fine.

    [COOP-9] First Response
    [COOP-5] Sky Raiders (Half the squad died as they jumped from the plane)
    [COOP-10] Mortar Life Than This


As with any Coop mission I would like to see respawn or revive or both. Nothing empty's a server faster than being a bird! For those that like the Uber-Hardcore experience maybe it could be an admin option as the mission starts.

But please keep up the good work with the mission making.

Hey, Pendragon, as I'm relevently new to creating/publishing missions, I can't be sure what the problem can be. Do you use original ArmA 2? I'm not sure that's the problem, but if you don't, that could be the problem. It shouldn't really need it, I'll look into it ASAP and I'll update the pack.

All the missions use group respawn, but I will try and implement a revive script if you feel it's needed.

Also, there does tend to be alot of problems with the HALO jump on Sky Raiders. I don't understand why, but I imagine it's something to do with the script used (It's the standard BI one, maybe it isn't MP compatible? If anyone knows how I can get around this problem, I'd be really grateful if you could help me out!)

Thank you for brining these to my attention, Pendragon, and thanks for the kind words. I hope you have enjoyed the (working) missions!

The server is a 20 slot rented unit in a data centre, so I'm not hosting from home... It's running a combined Ops server with coop missions from both versions of the game. So it should be able to handle any mission just so long as there are no mods. Currently 74 missions and climbing, Utes, Chernarus, Tackistan, Zargabad and Desert_E. This gives our guys lots to pick from when playing.


The mission just don't load, there are there to be selected from the menu but just as soon as you select them you get returned to menu selection. I have left them on the server so you can have a look for yourself.

Filter by name and type "[-44-]" that will find the server. From there you will be able to select your missions from the list. The Server is in a data centre in the UK, but ping is not too much of an issue given the fast connection.

Pendragon, this should fix your problem, if the missions still won't work, let me know.

Hey I really enjoyed playing these mission, apart from once on the sky raiders mission my parachute auto deployed when I left the plane leaving me floating far above the combat. Apart from this its a solid all round mission pack. Keep up the good work.
