The following map shows you the most important things. We begin on an airfield off to the North-West. Areas marked with green are the landing zones outlined in the briefing. There's an ammo marker cut off with the northern most tip of the island. It's the cache in the village mentioned in the briefing.

Sounds awesome.

Also implementing ACRE is just writing a small script to check ACRE is loaded and if it is spawn a radio crate :)

Go for ACRE, the whole idea sounds awesome.

The mission's done. It's missing a proper cinematic but atm. I'm too lazy to do this properly.

What would people prefer as playdate?
I created a poll here (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=4f328c32c2e1b0e48497c294). Feel free to suggest other dates/answers.

Also feel free to volunteer for command/deputy command.

voted, go go ACRE!

no ACRE in the first session as it doesn't work for several regulars and is quite unstable atm.

a parameter to activate it is implemented however and it does work with the mission.

I'm leaning towards Saturday, the 25th of February as the set date. Starting time at around 17.00 GMT / 18.00 CET. Spreadsheet now included in the main post.

We also still need volunteers for taking CO/DC

The spreadsheet is view only at the moment. Do you want us to put our tombola entries in the thread?

Nah fixed now. I'm dense.

I've added my stuff. I'll try and make it, but I'm not sure what the workload with my studies will be.

At the certainty of asking a stupid question, what does the "tombola exception" mean?

Bodge
16-02-2012, 12:16 PM
i would imagine things you don't want to take, also in, will take what ever role. I have no idea what i am doing around that date though.

Wolfenswan

The exception is the role you're guaranteed *not* to get. Everything else will be distributed in rough order of importance. If the turnout is lower than expected we might just revert to a regular slotting but I thought of the tombola as a good idea to mix up the "special" stuff a bit.

Hi, I've added my name, I will really try hard to make it, quite likely I will.

Hi, I'm new here.
Not sure if this is new thread material, but here goes:
I'd like to participate, but I've only got ARMA 2 (retail). Does the Steam version of OA still integrate with the base game if that's retail?
If not, any advice on the best price? I've seen the ARMA X collection (all of ARMA 1 and 2 together) go for 30€ at retail, so I may get that if the downloadable version of OA doesn't integrate with retail ARMA 2.

Well, then allow me to be the first one to welcome you!

Yes. Since the 1.60 patch, it even does so automatically! Although you still need to start Arma 2 atleast once after you have installed OA, or something. In case it doesn't work this thread should help. (http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?101214-ARMA-2-CO-%28how-to-combine-ARMA-2-into-ARMA-2-OA-and-use-together%29)

Excellent. I've bought, downloaded and installed the steam version of Arrowhead, and it integrated fine with the retail version of ARMA 2 (after I thought of patching that). I'll have to test the map and mumble setup later.

I'll most likely be there the 25th, but I might be flooded in work then. I've signed up on the google docs spreadsheet, and I think I've understood what the tombola columns mean. (role preferences, right?)

Just curious - can it be placed an hour or so bit later? It's placed rather inconveniently at dinner time for me - and I geuss it holds true for a lot of people. Or mabye I am the only guy who still lives with his parents (albeit not for long).

Just to clarify,i just need mumble and the island mod for this?Not using Acre?

Comrade Commissar

Correct, you need ARMA 2 Combined Ops, the Isola di Capraia map and Mumble.

No worries, you did good. I hope we'll see more of you (and other new peoples), the regular sessions may provide a slightly less confusing experience and it'll get better pretty fast :)

What did you guys think of my commanding and the mission in general?

You did a bang-up job, Joe. I will follow you into the depths of revolutionary hell if need be.

Hmm. I did notice that we ocasionally did get 'taken from behind', which is quite unfortuante (I killed an entire squad by myself 0_o), and why I decided to stick very close to Bravo when we attacked the farm. So there's my small note for improvement. Otherwise - very well done.
