Alright here is the CWR² Public Beta for you to play with - and hopefully for testing as well!

This Beta version is more or less a final release, which gets at least a monthly update. For those who are interested in getting the latest fixes and help us testing, you can find 'nightly' builds here.

For those who prefer to have complete packages, we may provide one Beta Release per month which then contains all previous bug fixes.

Besides the content from the previous Demos it contains the following:

* Bicycle

* BRDM-2 (thanks hcpookie)

* General Guba, Angelina (thanks LODU)

* M2A2 Bradley

* Mini (Retextured Lada)

* Colonel Guba (Officer with blue Beret) - used in Resistance campaign

* Motorcycle

* New AT Launcher Magazines "cwr2_CarlGustavRocket_DP", "cwr2_AT4Rocket_DP", "cwr2_LawRocket_DP", "cwr2_RPG75Rocket_DP", "cwr2_RPG7Rocket_DP"

* OH-58

* Russian Patrol Boat (thanks hcpookie)

* Sports Car (aka Hatchback and Sedan)

This release is dedicated to James 'Planck' McNicoll.

Thanks for the mirrors!

Please do not mirror the Missions or Campaign files as they change quite often!

Mission creators:

Give Mikeros cwr2ofp a try when editing/converting old OFP missions. It could save you a lot of headache trying to find the correct replacement classname!

Hahaha, you guys. <3

I have a question. I do recall there were some missions that used the expansions as well as a recent one that used a recently converted island (I think it was a steal the car mission). Are those still in these links?

They should be there yes, not the UK/NL missions though because they belong into the respective Expansion packages.

If you miss something that was there before but now isn't : Complain and we get it back asap. :)

Yeah, looks like the two missions in an earlier UK expansion pack are no longer in the expansion download. Rolling Thunder UK and Strikehold UK. I can understand it not being in the main download, but why is it omitted in the UK download? Something wrong with those missions? o:

EDIT: Encountered my first bug. In the opening mission for Resistance, if you take the bike and go to the gas station, you are...teleported to a stranded island with pigs. You can simply wait for the bus, but I've literally never done that in any playthrough until this one. Nothing too major I guess, as you can still progress another way.

I just played that part two days ago and it was working. I went to the gas station following the main road (driving straight from the bus stop, not turning right; which should work too). I will check it.

Nice one, thanks for this :)

Will this be on the Six Network anytime soon, as ideally I'll get it from there so that it only has to download the changed parts of the files but if it's not going on there I'll download from the links?

I knew it! It was aprils fools! You basterds... you released it the day after! :D Well, since you specially tricked me twice? and still released it, no hanging or banning is needed anymore, well done!

Sorry for beeing rude, but I just can't deal with people who lie, so I kinda try to fence off by a wall, untill I understand the actions/words and only then let people in. Though, the wall was breached, by the experienced "liers" (don't get me wrong, I let my self to be tricked!)

So, thank you for your hard work, for tricking me (I can't believe I just said that), next time I'll have barded wire on the wall... :)

Can't wait to get it downloaded, and jump into the "astonishing memories of life"!

It still did technically release on April 1st, you know. I don't think they lied as there was an uploading snaffu. For a 2+ GB mod, that's a pretty hard think to keep all orderly sometimes.

Yes I must say that CWC not included is a bit disappointing but we decided to hold it back until the last few missions are tested and the missing cutscenes are improved. Since some of the not done cutscenes are at the very beginning, you would then never see them without playing the campaign again. We work on it as fast as we can and I hope we can have it ready at latest this weekend.

;)

Six Network - I'm on that now.

so, a few things:

-in the documentations usa, there is not the classname of the oh-58

-some choppers don't have crosshair (eg: the OH-58D) or some have the same crosshaire, whatever weapon is selected (eg:AH-1)

-some vehicles are very hard to destroy

-the tires are invicibles on vehicles

-the picture overview of SP mission ground attack 2 is an AH-64D Longbow, whereas in game it's an AH-64C without the longbow

I get a Data Error (cyclic redundancy check) when I try and start it up, with no other mods running, just ArmA2:CO

Added now. Classname is: cwr2_OH58

-some choppers don't have crosshair (eg: the OH-58D) or some have the same crosshaire, whatever weapon is selected (eg:AH-1)

OH-58 has crosshairs here. In fact, all helicopters with rocket pods have a crosshair visible.

-some vehicles are very hard to destroy

Well it would help if you would name them. :p

-the tires are invicibles on vehicles

Correct, some of the civilian cars still have no destroyable wheels.

-the picture overview of SP mission ground attack 2 is an AH-64D Longbow, whereas in game it's an AH-64C without the longbow

Sigh, okay I make a new one.

Done. :)

Are you sure you have removed all previous CWR² Demo 4 content? Or maybe a corrupt download?

I have never heard of that error before in all the years, so not sure what could cause it.

So will this be automatically updated on 6, including missions and campaigns? I love your work.
