After long last, almost a year in development (all of which is my free time), I present to you guys my first full-fledged campaign for Armed Assault 2 Combined Operations.
Complete voice acting;
A riveting plot that carries you from the middle east to eastern Europe;
Music from other action games and movies;
Uses a variety of community made content including Mando Missiles, Robert Hammer's weapon packs, MRAPs, elite special operations units, and new environments.
Ability to use all the vanilla Arma 2 and OA weapons for your squad during the briefings. If you download all the optional addon weapon packs, you'll have an unprecedented amount of death dealin firearms
Its currently only been tested by me, so I'm sure there will be some bugs. Just post em here and I'll tackle em as fast as possible.
In its current state, this is SP only, as I've never made a coop or mp level. If anyone with any experience would like to help me convert this to COOP I'd very much be happy too.
Please post any feedback, positive or constructive criticism so I can continue to improve this project and and any future projects!
Thanks for playing!!!
If you don't install all of the optional addons, you'll get an error before each mission briefing. This is okay, as the game will still work, but adding the optional weapons will eliminate this error message and give you're team all kinds of fun toys to kill those nasty terrorists with
Not tested with any AI Mods, so I cannot guarantee compatibility with mods such as Zeus AI, and they may break missions.
IEDs from the BAF DLC and Units from the PMC DLCare included, if you don't have the DLC, the IEDs and Units will appear low-res.
On missions that use Group Link 4, a Initialize prompt pops up in the side radio chat. Kinda annoying but I don't know how to get rid of this (yet).
There's still a few bugs with the qualification ranges in 'The Stan' mission. Sometimes a target won't popup and thus won't score. I've never had an issue where this would cause me to fail the qualifications, but you can re-qualify as many times as you like anyhow. I am working on this, however.

Contest:RUNNING THE GAUNTLET
Winner will receive: A spot on this post, and a virtual high five!
In order to play, you simply have to run through the Gauntlet as fast as you can, while knocking down all targets.
Pics or it didn't happen!
The Gauntlet is the CQC live fire range located in the mission 'The Stan.' Simply run through the Gauntlet with your weapon of choice, knockdown all of the targets, then sprint to the end as fast as you can.
Ranger you have done an exceptional job on this campaign. It's obvious you put a lot of time and love into creating it. Dude your voice is awesome. You sound like the lead Delta operator in Medal of honor. I'm going to have to ask you for some voice work in my next campaign if you're not too busy. One small thing that bugged me that is really not important. The music volume was too loud in certain parts. Well that's it. I'll let you know if i find anything else.
No problemo, I'd love to help! Just shoot me a script and I'll have my agent get back with you
Try and see if changing your music volume in the settings will help you, I'll see what I can do for the next release. I know that some of the voice acting volume is too low, when I recorded on Audacity 1.3 beta the recordings were almost inaudible in game, but if recorded in Audacity 1.2.6 it sounded fine . . .
