    Sounds awesome.

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

    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. Feel free to suggest other dates/answers.

    Also feel free to volunteer for command/deputy command.

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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'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.

    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?)
