Shadows of the Motherland

Recommended Posts

SotMSig.jpg

<span style='color:red'>Shadows of the Motherland</span> is an all-new single player campaign for Operation Flashpoint. It has 20+ missions with many fully voice acted cutscenes (featuring almost 500 recorded sounds), custom music and an engaging storyline:

"The year is 1988 and you are Captain Leon Yesenin assigned as part of a NATO peacekeeping force on the island of Nogova following internal instability. It has been three years since you defected into the US Army from your Soviet Spetz Natz division and three years since you have seen your old friend, and former comrade in arms, Alexei Tupilov, who you know moved to Nogova after the events that forced your transition. Little do you know that your experiences on this island will reveal new truths about your friendship with Alexei and about the events that forced your separation and defection. Once again you will be cast underneath the shadows of the motherland." --- Quote from the official website

The first full beta version of the campaign is now available. More details about the project can be found at the official website and an exciting new <span style='color:red'>promotional video</span> can be found by following this link. This thread will be updated with news as and when it is available.

<span style='color:blue'>Latest News:</span> Shadows of the Motherland now featuring on the front page of the OFPEC news section (added 1st September)

Shadows of the Motherland has been released! Get the latest version HERE and all replies are welcome in the beta testing thread at OFPEC

The link is OK. Your html downloaded, but I see nothing. If I view the page source, I see your HTML code, the frameset and everything, but in my IE6 doesn't see anything. sad_o.gif

I just got an e-mail about it this morning and I've spent most of the day playing through it. biggrin_o.gifbiggrin_o.gif

I have to say its great overall but there are a few problems.

First off the beginning cut-scene seems just a little long, and second of all I'm getting tremendous amounts of lag (but thats probably more of an issue of my playing this with the Y2K3 mod).

Other than that its great... One of the best campaigns I've played on OFP biggrin_o.gif

Although I'm still wondering why I got that e-mail? Did I sign up for something I don't remember signing up for? confused_o.gif

a reminder to everyone that all comments are extremely welcome, as we have had quite a lot of downloads so far but not a great deal of feedback.

are you talking about the links to the download page from here or the mirrors? the former seem to work fine for me and if you cant get one mirror to work then try another.

keep trying and you should be able to get it working

This is the future of OFP. Pity certain other missions still require so many addons.

Download works fine for me !

BTW, quite a nice video. Too bad we see some visual glitches sometimes due to your graphical settings...

Gonna try the campaign as soon as it finishes DL'ing!

Missions and campaigns are what OFP needs most. Thanks...

I have been playing it for two months now and still can't get enough of it

I am playing this with DMA Army Pack Replacement Mod and ECP - near the end, it's a total inferno I have never experienced before

this campaign is truely OFP at its best notworthy.gif
