Intially the goal is ZERO mods, just the stock game and the latest patch. If we get a core group playing it, then we can probably look at mods.

I like similar missions, tanks aren't my cup of tea, unless there's lot of tanks for me too!

I downloaded a COOP MP ones from the sites you mentioned. Not many support respawn though. I didn't get a chance to go through all of the ones I downloaded but several do support respawn.

These are small, so if any of the veterans here could send a few to my positiveg@gmail.com address that would be great.

Yep, that's a good idea to eliminate potential problems. Of course some standard mods would be good, BAS and FDF especially for what I like. But I agree with your thinking.

Most guys like respawn and it's fine. I don't mind if it doesn't have it, I've always found a one-life thing makes the game play more realistically as everyone tends to be more cautious and get their noggins down. But of course it's all for fun and some guys don't have fun flying their seagull around \:\)

Yeah the seagull kinda sucks, but if everyone becomes one quickly the wait isn't too long!

I'll read up on those mods you mentioned.

For FDF look here http://koti.mbnet.fi/~fdfmod/

FOr BAS look here http://www.ballisticaddonstudios.com/

FDF has nice units, weapons and some core changes, like muzzle sway and increased recoil, but they went way too far in binocular sway IMO. I can hold a pair of glasses steadier with a 12 pack in me \:\)

BAS has awesome rifles and helos.

Is everyone using Magnum's comms? Should we ask permission or is it open for all?

Excellent! That's four confirmed players.

A buddy of mine (SpaceMarine) on the home LAN, Dbond, AirJawa and myself. We'll launch at 9PM EST.

I don't think Magnum will mind us using his for now.

Use it...going to keep it till SimHQ's is officially up and running without problems... be nice to see tactical games played on it for a change, instead of warcraft and WOW which seems to be played more, lol. ;\)

Thanks Magnum. Good games tonight, I'm getting a lot better, it helps to have people on your team doing a good job too.

Hopefully we can settle on a good map rotation.

I'll leave that server running, and if anyone wants Admin rights, let me know.

Good stuff guys, thanks for the server. I lost comms, and after the mission I left to get it sorted and got sidetracked and couldn't make it back.

In the first mission we played, the Lipany one, I was moving along in good form, not too far from Airjawa. Heard lots of shooting, but hadn't seen any targets yet. I was sort of leapfrogging with him and boom, a grenade lands between us, both dead. Same thing again after respawn, I caught up with him, started looking around and boom, another grenade took us both out. So I've now died twice and haven't even seen a bad guy, let alone fire the weapon.

In the first task force mission I probably shouldn't have opened up when I did at the last target, as that set the bees to buzzin' and it was over quickly.

Good fun, thanks for the game.

Friday night is our usual get together night.
Saturday on a rainy day.

Anyhow, really need some solid COOP Respawn missions in that rotation.

Hey guys, been watching this thread, and was wondering, are you still using "vanilla" install or any additions yet? I'm gonna try and join you guys this Friday (21st).

BTW, I'm a great pilot if you need someone to do any flying for insertion or EVAC.

+G, thanks for checking on this. GOTY not here yet - this is the only tracking message I've got:

"Your item was processed and left our BELL, CA 90201 facility on July 12, 2006. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later."

That makes a week so far, but with a weekend in between, "Media Mail" method, maybe that's not yet a bad sign. Hoping delivery is today or tomorrow, and planning on Friday evening session if at all possible. Otherwise, I'll write to GoGamer and see what they say.

Rev - speaking for myself, I intend to stay "vanilla" to make sure all works well, on and off line, at least initially.

It's vanilla so far. Like I mentioned earlier, once we get rolling I'm up for some graphic enhancements, but I'd like to stick to the time-frame originally modelled. But I'm easy going, what ever the group wants. We can always use a good pilot, need a mission or two to go with it though.
