The second attempt at this mission I just ignored everything.
Mission kicks off, I jump into the jeep, oder the others to get it, sit down, shut up, and then I drive at flank speed through the *forest*, avoiding the trees, arrive at the house, get the docs before anyone else does, get radioed, and go *right back* that instant, also at flank speed right through the forest, only to get blasted to smithereens by some soldiers at the entryway to the base.
So I try again, do the exact same thing, and this time I will attempt drive up that hill not using the roads again, and as far away from these soldiers at possible. That worked for me once, and I *had* seen the cutscene once before (that was the attempt whereafter I did everything humanly possible to reach the 9km target, because I didn't know I was supposed to twiddle my thumps at the base, waiting).
Wish me luck I can just repeat this ... just once more, and *then* I'll wait for ... whatever happens next, while I'm on-base.
I real did enjoy this mission at the beginning; ripping over to get the documents, planting the explosives and then burning on home.
Seeing the base entrance guarded i zipped by (knocking a guard over ) and as the bullets started to fly I zigged over to the back of the hill and made my way up through the trees. Get to see the nice cut scene...very nice...have a chat with locals....all of which makes for a nice mission so far.
so I order everyone back in the the HUMMV but notice there's a "refuel at black barrel" option in the action menu! so i find the to black barrels (near the entrance at the top of the hill) and fill the HUMMV. now i'm thinking that 9 K in 25 mins with a full tank it's looking impossible.
So I have lots more fun burning around the country with the .50 Cal blazing away. Time is ticking by but so are the Kilometers.
But thats when the fun stops with about 2 K to go and 15 mins to do it in I get the instant kill trigger....come on BI....dont undo all the hard work!!! you created such a nice mission and then rune it with a cheep trick, to keep the player from getting to where you've told them to go. script a flat tire or some dialog that lets the player know getting to the extraction point is not doable...oh yeah and you might want to take out the fuel barrels.
yeh the devs dropped the ball with the instant kill thing you cant have a objective to get to a position and then not allow you to do it. If it was scripted correctly the waypoint would change to where the NAPA contacts are. At present the 'objective' is actually a route to failure and unfortunately players are not psychic. Once again what a shame this game wasnt tested properly simple things like this would ahve been found and then fixed early on. if ARMA 2 had been released without bugs it would ahve scored much higher on reviews and recived more sales. Whata waste/....

well i reloaded and this tiem followed the NAPA they eventually got to a house ne of novy stova and there were 2 x scouts there. However you cant talk to them and you cant talk to leader of the NAPA group, bug????
So reloaded and this time chose to be extracted by chopper, radioed it and it doesnt arrive waited over 10mins and nothing......
Do i have to replay the previous level and give the arms to the priest for this level to work (wouldnt surprise me...)???
\'At my signal unleash ####\'
How strange, I have played through this part three times. The first time (1.01), I had the cannot move bug, but then worked out that I hadn't followed the script. Second time, still (1.01) I managed to wait until 5 pm, spoke to the Napa guys but called the chopper (given the option) which was shot down. Third time, (1.02)I chose to go with the Napa guys, BUT am told to board the chopper by HQ, which I did, but still got shot down of course.

Hi guys just joined.
I HATE THIS GAME! as has been said it has not been tested properly.
I have spent the past 2 days(5hr in total) trying to get to the ext point and find the guys in NOVA.
I reported the guns
got the paperwork and returned.
killed a few reds at the entrance and had the vid with him dyin
saw the greens and went to look, got the shpeel. at no point did it say to follow them. I chose to go napa as the sams reported, common sence says not to fly. the fella said to go talk to father but he might not like you for turnin in guns or go to NOVA to talk to martin or some other fella as they might be more helpful. so I get in the Humvv and go down the road and fill up at the first fuel station. Ive been on all the roads to get to the south, even tried goin to see preist, he not there, as the T90 is in the way so I went the long way round the top of the village. I got out at the junction to the west of the town and a fella ran up to me sayin I had to leave as the father fled and to go see the 2 fighters in NOVA. go there, no one is there! went to the house at the top of the hill were 2 scouts are, cant do anything.
I am loosing my tether with this, I loved OFP and Have been waitin for OFP2 for over 2 years now.
1 is OFP2 gonna be sim to this garbage? if so ill cancel the pre order!
2 what do I do? take it start again and follow them at the FOB?
I will say that if this game has everything cleaned up it will be ace. I love the fact that you have falmost free rain over were you go. the gfx are nice.
as the game is at the min it is rubbish, why put an objective in that is never doable?
and if you are ment to follow the greens at the FOB then why not have him say follow us n we'll take you to NOVA?
from what he said it made me think I had to find my own way there as he wishes you luck?
I really want to LOVE the game but it is so hard when a company brings out a game that has such a MAHOOOOOOSIVE F&^%up.
sorry but it is annoying, I do thank them for bringing out this kind of game and I do apreciate that it is tuns of work to get it to work, But please make sure it works before selling it.
I am gonna continue to play it and try to keep my cool as keyboards, mice, monitors dont last long when I play games like this lol.
hope they are sorted soon.

jus started again,
went to get the docs ok
came back and while talkin to napa I said not need their help, then told the bos no fly n ide drive, ok
went to fill up and went around the back of preist town. I know from previous that a man comes to talk to you at the WEST side of the town. then followed main rd to NOVA were for the first time I was met by REDS and duely dealt with.
OMFG what do you do? gonna try again tomoz and say yes to the NAPA. looks the only way to go which is against the game? as it says your choices deter the path of the game? (er well no they dont! specially if you die when you want to do something.)
In a way this seems as boaring as CoD only Cod works and is more fun as you jus follow the path and kill everything on the way.
Just a thought, as I'm still not clear - can we have somebody post a step by step guide to completing this Bitter Chill mission when you chose not to call in SF21? Not a walk-thru, but a step by step guide to triggers that must be hit, I guess?
From what I gather, it's something like 1: talk to napa 2: chose not to fly 3: follow napa to red car 4: get in the trunk...
I'm not sure if that's correct, or what to do once we're in the trunk so could somebody please clarify what to do from FOB after choosing not to fly please?
I haven't played this game since my big rant a few days ago (as on page 2) and in truth, I miss it! Maybe if I knew there was an imminent 1.03 patch I would wait, but with no news on 1.03 I'm eager to get back into the game as is.
OH, and if anybody does make this post, can they confirm the steps they post work after reporting the weapons cache at the church as it sounds like the priest is involved.
Thanks in advance to whoever does; I'm sure there's plenty of others that need it besides myself.
I am now concvinced that this game is total s£$te!
I have just restarted the mission and I followed the gp of NAPA fighters that I spoke to, they take me on foot to the house on the hill wi the 2 scouts on??????????? were I cant do anything.
BI a little tip, make sure the damn thing works!
The gp of NAPA fighters say good luck to you when you finish chatting so what would make you follow them?
also what does the man in GORKA have to do with it? at the west end of town. he tells you to go due to the reds and to go talk to the 2 fighters in NOVA.
Why are there no fighters in NOVA when 2 ppl say there are?

5: Head North to the NAPA safehouse or South to the CDF lines avoiding any major firefights with Red armoured vehicles.
That's it really.
Letting the Priest keep the weapons in Manhatten gets the NAPA on your side.
