View Full Version : Invasion 1944 Sessions!

With Invasion 1944 2.6 out and most of the ARPS guys having downloaded it already, we might just play it a bit more often than usual.

Washington and me already made missions on the new winter maps and we already had two nice sessions of I44 on Wednesday and Thursday, but there sure will be more to come.

So I figured we might want to have a thread where we can plan ahead to get sufficient player numbers for those lager scale missions, as so far we've mainly played the 5 to 15 player missions, as we didn't get enough people together.

I suggest we think of a date where we can all assemble and tackle some of the higher player number missions, preferably in the near future.
Maybe we can even introduce a regular session on one day of the week, if people would like that.

Anyway, I heard people suggesting to play I44 tomorrow again, but I realise that's kind of on short notice to get those 15+ players together, so what about next week Saturday (10.03.2012)?

I was thinking of playing some of the large scale missions like D-Day, the Battlegrounds adversarial and maybe even my new Castle Defense mission, what do you guys think?

For those who haven't downloaded, but would like to...

http://www.invasion-1944.com/ New website.

Go there, and then click download. You need Operation Arrowhead patched up to 1.6, the Community Base Addons mod (a collective community resource, that a lot of mods use), and the I44 download itself. It's 2GB, and you extract it into your Operation Arrowhead folder. Add it to your mod line, and you'll be good to go (for info on that, check Google).

It's a very well done mod... a total conversion even. It doesn't just give a smattering of WW2 stuff, it goes the whole hog. New Infantry, weapons, equipment, vehicles, planes, features and maps... New handsignals, animations (slide and jump) weather effects, atmospheric effects (sniffling teammates and steamy exhalations on Bastogne), antitank grenades, Nebelwerfers, Flamethrowers! Look at all the different Nazis you can kill (http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/506891845340005071/90942267921FACDF2A460C294FC541EC65EEF65F/).

It's very stable, haven't had any problems thus far. Solidly done, no random script errors, or really fiddly mechanics. Install is easy. And it's great fun.

Here is Me and Washington hiding in some holes, while Head chases a Tiger with his flamethrower.


Edit: Also, as a bonus, you can get Lee Enfield practice in for the FOLK sessions.

(sniffling teammates and steamy exhalations on Bastogne)

Those effects work on every map, actually. Even in the desert, which doesn't make any sense, but well.
They're scripts you can implement into every mission, so you can create really cold Chernarus nights etc.

Here's the first version of the F2 I44 stub:

it's still WIP but the basics (markers etc) work. I'm not going to include a version of the gear script as the documentation of the classes is horrible.

v1 - 02.03.2012 - basic functions
v2 - 02.03.2012 - added two basic patrol groups as examples
v3 - 03.03.2012 - now includes option for norrin's revive 0.5, more fire teams.
v4 - 03.03.2012 - added units and markers for french resistance
v5 - 03.03.2012 - added planes and Royal Army. Some misc changes and bugfixing
v6 - 05.03.2012 - supports Winter Factions, default map is now Merderet, added more
v7 - 12.03.2012 - added gear script functionality (not completely implemented), some small things

en garde, bushcat! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhQvkPMNt70

so, I've updated Santa Sucks (streamlining a few things behind the scenes like fog issues & wave-timing) and created a new mission: We be Waffen (A german squad assaults a PIR company HQ/OP for glory on omaha v2).

I'd be for a regular Friday night session.

This mod looks really great, as our comrades said before, we should make a permanent time for some 1944 sessions, Saturday anyone?

13-03-2012, 12:59 PM
I accidentally downloaded the hotfix. But I'm at my university now, so I'll use their bandwidth to reel in this beaut. See you soon!

I'd be up for introducing something like a "Mod Saturday" which wouldn't be reserved to only I44, but would also include things like the Vietnam mod "Unsung", missions with ACRE or maybe even missions with ACE.

I just saw that our friends at cia have created several i44 missions (http://ciahome.net/forum/index.php?board=60.0)

I'll upload them soonish.

Wait, wait, wait. The Folk people use Lee Enfields?

I am clearly on the wrong side here. The LE is the best gun in the game!

Anyway, I poked at this a bit earlier. Seems fun, I like the bolt action guns and the lack of NV, super vision, and total tank/chopper dominance. The AI is even more hopeless, though. I sat in a barn for about 15 minutes wiping them all out with a revolver. Two of them ran straight into me and missed at point blank range, while another who found me while I was checking my map shot me with a rifle from a foot away, then ran off until I shot him up the arse.

Saturday could work for me, though not every week, as I'll be drunk and/or hung over quite often. Which I've just realised makes me sound terrible. Oh well.

I'm just gonna leave this here:

Nice bump of the thread Draakon.

Yeah awesome movie, we need to play some Silent Hunter hehe.

23-07-2012, 03:33 PM
Cool, looks good. I shall be up for some weekend shenanigans (Saturday would work)
edit: I just checked out some videos on youtubes... this thing looks freakin' awesome!
I feel ashamed for purchasing Iron Front

24-07-2012, 11:43 AM
I'm game for I44 as well. Saturday could work for me too.

24-07-2012, 10:45 PM
I'll probably be just as much of a liability in this as I am in regular ARMA, but I'd be up for giving it a shot (saturday would also work for me)
