Alright, I want to play the Red Hammer campaign again, but it doesnt work. The intros, conversations are not timed, why? I'd like to play it but it is unplayable, awful intros. How can I fix it?

Bah, don't play Red Hammer. I recommend you try Peacemaker: Retaliation (using the FFUR 2005/1985 mods, either one is fine). It gives a much more realistic, rounded, better scripted and less biased view than the original Red Hammer - though all due respect to those guys work. Posted Image

Peacemaker: Retaliation (though only one part of the campaign) is what the Soviet missions should be like, IMHO.

I enjoyed Red Hammer too - it was good to play as a Soviet. However, I just enjoyed Retaliation much more, as it seemed the Russians were just a tad more... sane.

Oh, and welcome to the forums, Beatty. Posted Image

No.
PPL here dont like Red Hammer because they dont like Codemasters because they had some troubles with BIS.

Retaliation is a worthwhile download, I agree.

I didn't like Red Hammer, mainly because I found sections of it incredibly hard, despite attempting them in a manner of different ways. The missions were also a bit lack luster and it just didn't have the charm of either cwc or resistance. But this is just my view.

red hammer was a load of bollocks, typical of czechs to never right or create or draw anything good about russians (understandably, given their history with them). I enjoyed the missions, but hated the hollywood story.

Please check your facts before slinging mud.

I felt I had to stick my noise in here and give you my opinion.

I think RH is a very good campaign, just as good as the best usermade ones. I enjoyed all the missions. Sure, the story was a bit stupid. But the missions were quite different from CWC, in a good way. CWC and Resistance focused on realism and story, whilst RH was more about the challenge. I guees you could call it arcade.

Anyone who hasnt played RH should do so right now, even if you think Codemasters are nothing more than a bunch of Ł€$ lovers. Posted Image (and they are)

I hope this wont qualify as spam. Posted Image

Red Hammer was a terrible campaign. The pauses between speech were too lomg, and it was simply boring, not to mentioned developed by the enemies of OFP. The only good thing about Red Hammer was that it provided Russian accented voices over radio instead of american.

I always enjoyed the mission where you got to set up defenses in Montignac.

I thought Red Hammer was a good campaign. It's not quite as good as the BIS ones, but it's definitely well-made and professionally done (even if some of the cutscenes are messed up on the current version of OFP)

I thought some of the missions were quite creative, too. Especially the last one.

And those complaining about difficulty, have you actually tried that Retaliation campaign!? Yes it's very well done but it was so impossible I gave up on the second mission (where you have to escape from about 50 armed guys on your own. Seriously...) Meanwhile, I finished Red Hammer although I did have trouble on a few missions, "Rage" in particular.
