How long do you think it will take to get the CGR co-op missions working? I never finished the video series in A2 and I think it would pretty neat to finish it in A3!

Converting mostly requires to add the new task code, small description changes, some unit tweaking and adding the new revive scripts for COOP. It took few hours to convert those campaign missions for SP. COOP mission with cutscenes could take some more time, but else I try to convert COOP missions too soon.

Released the Black Forest mission. Let me know if you spot any issues. I tested the main tasks, but NAPA tasks arent yet properly tested.

SaOk a new AiA version is out.

The most important aspect for you is to not mix A3 and A2/OA units like you have done already.

Sorry about that - unfortunately no way around that until BI fixes the underlying problem.

On the positive side your missions have their original A2/OA characters back. :)

Dont worry, I was also missing the old models especially for the campaign. I will tweak the missions for the changes. Mostly I only changed clothing for certain factions with simple loop in init.sqf, easy to remove those and change some classes back (only in Black Forest). Thanks for updating the mod again. :)

You need to create Campaigns folder in ArmA3 mainfolder (where the missions folder also is) and place the pbo there. The campaign may be then listed as first in the campaign section in the game. There is title missing, so you only see empty list (of campaigns). If you click the list, the missions open under the invisible campaign name. And clicking the mission, you can start campaign or resume old saves. For some reason it refresh the mission list only after restarting the game, but the resume button always takes you to the last save.

Greetings SaOk, loving the missions, Whole Lotta War especially. I had a problem with resuming my mission, I get a hang then CTD during the loading menu. The load progress bar stops at about 70% and then slow CTDs. Anybody else getting this problem (I'm also updated to newest AiA version)?

For me the resuming worked earlier (when I played AiA version with A3 units replacing A2/OA ones) and I played the mission about 1-1,5hours, but today the mission crashed early only 15minutes after starting. Not sure yet why it crashes.

As small bug the local leader gets deleted currently if player gets far - better to receive the task from him at roadblock before wandering far (~near Bastam). I will fix it for the next version.

Yeah I was using A2/OA units when I'd get the resume crash. It may have been because I had my teammates pick up A2/OA weapons perhaps, M16A4 ACOGs and M4A1 ACOGs with no icons in the gear menu? Thanks SaOk.

You seem to be doing about 15, no seriously, 15 different projects at the same time. Besides coffee and cigerattes, how do you do it?

Surely you work and sleep? Date girls?

You're amazing. Keep up the great work!

:), coverting old mission for ArmA3 is really quick. Mostly those work without doing anything. I updated the description with loadscreen stuff and moved debriefings there, switched task code, removed static weapons (that caused crashes), added nvgoggles as items and added the new exit animation. Here is the code if someone is needing:

Items/Tasks/Ending:

player addItem "NVGoggles";
player assignItem "NVGoggles";
player removeweapon "NVgoggles";
player addItem "Binoculars";

_nul = ["task1","SUCCEEDED"] call BIS_fnc_taskSetState;

_nul = ["task4","FAILED"] call BIS_fnc_taskSetState;

_nul = ["TaskAssigned",["Step #2: Find the Contact","Step #2: Find the Contact"]] call bis_fnc_showNotification;

[
player, // Task owner(s)
"task2", // Task ID (used when setting task state, destination or description later)
["Insurgents have downed our chopper far before we reached the LZ meetingpoint with Commander Mazur. I need to find a doctor to help my wounded team-mates. Nearby villages could offer medical help if I dont find some local friendly fighters first", "Find Help", "Find Help"], // Task description
(getmarkerpos "obj1b"), // Task destination
true // true to set task as current upon creation
] call BIS_fnc_taskCreate;

_nul = "end1" SPAWN BIS_fnc_endMission;

Description.ext:

OnLoadIntro = "Black Forest";
author="SaOk";
OnLoadName = "Black Forest";
onLoadMission = "Night is falling over the CDF trenches in Black Forest. Lieutenant Valenta is ordered to meet Captain at one of the outposts in the area";

class CfgDebriefing
{  
class End1
{
	title = "Mission Completed";
	subtitle = "";
	description = "This day belongs to us Lieutenant. You did well out there under overwhelming odds. I'm recommending you to command for promotion.";
	backgroundPicture = "";
	picture = "b_inf";
	pictureColor[] = {0.0,0.3,0.6,1};
};
};

Released new version for Whole Lotta War. The version number is corrected (currently lower than the orginal). I added big moving armies using new scripts. Each have own stats (amount of tanks, infantry, AA/AT-infantry teams, AA vehicles). If different side armies collide outside of player´s sight, they fight virtually loosing "stats", else as spawned if player is close. There is marker over the armies that is invisible over the enemy unless there is friendlies close or MQ9 howering above which also make the amount of vehicles to be displayed as exact value in marker text. Else enemy army stats are displayed unaccurately. When the army is destroyed it currently respawns to it's starting point. I will work more on the system, adding more features (reinfantry, different kind of support...) and tweaking the current ones. The armies are only small part of the units on map, there is still patrols/zones/camps and other things to populate the map too.

Change Log:

0.5 A3

-Added new army system (big armies moving on map with own stats figthing with each other virtually or spawned if player is close)

-Added MQ9 to spot enemy armies with more detailed intel

-Added new custom sounds for noisy goats, sheeps and roosters

-Backpacks added to vehicles

-Some tweaks/fixes (Local Leader isnt deleted anymore)

---------- Post added at 17:06 ---------- Previous post was at 16:17 ----------

Reuploaded the file, DEV-version removed support for vehicleInit-commands breaking init.sqf. Its now fixed. Error message is still coming from one old BIS burn script, I will try fix that too soon, but it dosent seem to be gamestopper bug.

Edit: Reuploaded once more, the error from burn script should be gone. I will fix Zub and check Black Forest soon too. CGR should already work (even there is also fire scripts).

Edit2: Again reuploaded. I fixed finally the smoke signals (now chopper can land closer and nearby friendlies come to help you). Also the armies are little smaller and mostly only enemies react now on sounds.

I reuploaded the WLW mission with takistan militians removed (takistan army units replacing those) to see if crashing is gone. Someone said those could have caused crashes. With fast testing the mission didnt yet crash, but too early to say.

---------- Post added at 22:43 ---------- Previous post was at 21:07 ----------

Again, reuploaded. Heard and tested that friendly guerrilla snipers with SVD, caused crash when dying. Going to tweak the SVD's away from the other missions too soon.

Thanks, :) I had been thinking if its possible to have those global especially sound-files in campaign. Even when 7z packs the campaign it seems to lower the size to that, but this would save some space on HD.
