Smak Coop 30 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Smak Clan have released a nine mission coop mod, grab it from our Downloads page.


Pie's News updated 30 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
I noticed a couple of interesting articles over at Pie's recently. First up, it was cool to see Ghost Recon already in the Top Ten sellers list, even though retailers are still shipping out the first batch of orders.

Pie also reported on Mike Schell's progress unlocking Ghost Recon Characters, which opens up a whole new world of modding opportunities. For full and technical details, read Pie's news post from the 29th November. For an explanation of the current state of play regarding Modding GR, check Jester's post in our Mods Forum.


External Error 30 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
No - not another error message, but a clan looking for sign-ups. IPsoldat from External Error also runs a popular IP, which is now listed in our Dedicated Boxout on the right, sometimes it gets a little too popular though, as he discovered to his cost!

"the next day when I got up to go play the darn thing was packed and I couldnt get in!!!"

  Choppy Fix 30 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
MadJackal has been playing around with his virtual memory settings, and reports a noticabe difference in Ghost Recon performance. Read his tip here.

  Top Clan 29 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Browsing over at The Combat Zone I noticed that Allied Forces are sitting high in the Ghost Recon Top 5. If you fancy a pop at that number one slot sign up with TCZ here. If you would rather join Allied Forces, mail them here!


Help Files 29 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
JJ at Ubi Soft support has put together a few additions to the FAQ that might help anyone with issues running Ghost Recon. At the moment you can find them here.

PC Game Central were impressed with Ghost Recon, 93% impressed to be exact, check it out here.


Walkthroughs 29 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Xezol mailed us about his Ghost Recon Walkthroughs, and I'm glad he did - they are excellent! So far Iron Dragon and Eager Smoke are complete, while work on Stone Bell has already started. These are pictorial walkthroughs which are very easy on the eye, so check them out. If Red Storm games are not the only titles in your games collection, you might want to check out his other walkthroughs like Blue Shift, Max Payne, and he has even started a Return to Castle Wolfenstein page!


Site Stuff 28 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Today I fixed the last bug that was plauging the forums since the server switch, which was a new sign-up issue, so if you haven't already joined our Forums, please feel free to do so now.

Dedicated Servers
If you glance across to the right (down a bit, down a bit, there you go!) you will see we have a new boxout listing IPs for Dedicated GR servers. This is a trial, maintained by Carpetwax, so please send us feedback. Is this a feature you are interested in? Have you tried any of the listed servers - how did you get on? Let me know so I can make improvements, thanks.

Jack Stone, Ghost Sniper?
Is this Jack Stone?!


Reviews 28 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
I noticed a few sites getting all excited about a new Ghost Review, posted at Geek Girl's Guide 2 Games (!), so I checked it out - and the hype is justified. If you haven't checked it out yet, do so now. It had me laughing in the first paragraph with a veiled snipe at GameSpot (on that - check Snickers GameSpot rant today), and the third paragraph means I am off for a game after posting this, it hyped the missions up so good! It's a great read, often taking potshots at the so called "Expert" Reviewers, like this...

'Many of the Experts seem to be distressed there is no "Compete the mission while I grab a beer" tab'

Mind you, maybe he has hit on something there....anyway - read it or miss out!


The Canadians are Coming! 28 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
BajaBravo are working on a Canadian Army combat uniforms mod, if you just can't wait to see it, grab a beta from BajaBravo now! Thanks Storm@war

New Server 27 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Okay, we are now transmitting from our new server - courtesy of The Fubra Group. We also have a new header image, thanks to Spray! If you notice any bugs, or broken links please mail me details, thanks!


Happy Birthday! 26 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Ghost is 8 months old this month, and it's my Birthday too! I am feeling a little crazy right now, and might regret this, but what the heck! Send me a Birthday e-mail and tell me where you are in the world! Lets see if we can get a record number of Birthday "cards" in this year!


Dedicated Server IPs 26 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
If you know of any Dedicated Servers that are planned for Ghost Recon, drop us a line with the details. Carpetwax is going to maintain a list of Servers here at, we will keep the list posted right here on the front page for all you hungry gamers!


SAS, Guns and Tips 26 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
News just in from Silver at Ghost Recon Ops that SnowAngel has completed the SAS Uniform mod, which includes 7 new uniforms and some kit items. Grab it over at GRO.

If Weapons are more your thing check out NMM Gun Works where they have some new images to drool over, including a HK Mk23 "SOCOM" and FN P90, and if I am not mistaken, a cool new website design.

Games Fusion have posted tips on tweaking your graphics settings to optimise game performance. It has some good advice, but runs out of steam just as it is getting started! It's a good starter for anyone looking to squeeze more out of their system though, check it here.


We are moving! 25 Nov. 2001 | Rocky has been a phenomenal success, so much so that we are moving to new servers over the next few days to cope with the massive traffic. Two months ago we were receiving thousands of visitors every week, now we see thousands of visitors every single day of the week!

This does mean that the forums will be affected however; during the transition to the new servers the most recent posts may disappear. Fingers crossed, that should be the only slight inconvenience. Should any difficulties arise, I will keep you up-to-date via our sister site Aggression.


Modding Kit Icons 25 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Jester has provided a Tutorial showing how to make a new kit icon for new weapons. It's a clear step by step process with images, check it out here.


Realism Mod 24 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
=SEALZ= have made some additions to their Ghost Recon mod we posted 2 days ago. It has developed into "The =SEALZ= Squad Realism Mod", and they warn not to expect an easy ride ... "This mod is for REALISM. DO Not.. I repeat DO NOT write me e-mail complaining that the game is too hard now." says =SEALZ=ŧ§WHIP.

Expect to see the following, perhaps controversial, features

  • A M-24 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle with Sound Suppression with 7x scope.
  • A New Multiplayer solider to use in online play.
  • SF Sniper now available in Quick Mission and Single Player
  • All weapons ballistics redone to match real world settings. No longer shoot a man at 100 yards with a pistol and expect a head shot. Sniper rifles have much better accuracy and range.
  • All Weapons for a soldiers class is now available for that soldier. In other words, in single player, A sniper can choose from all sniper equipment instead of "one" primary type.
  • Drastically improved body hit detection. No longer can you shoot a person in the foot with one or two shots and kill them.
  • Body armor.. seems to have been "left out" This has been fixed. A sniper wears little or no armor. A Demo guy wears much more. This has been fixed and now soldiers will have varying degrees of body armor to the chest and helmet areas.

Grab SEALZ 2nd mod on the downloads page.


Voodoo Drivers 24 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Interesting news just in from The_Devil_DSS that there are new directX8 and 8.1 drivers for the Voodoo cards. At this stage I am not sure if they resolve the Ghost Recon Voodoo issues, but if you have a Voodoo card head over to GLSetup and try them out.


DIY Weapons 22 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
DJ at Platoon has posted another great tutorial - this time on how to create weapons in 3D Studio Max. Not everyone has access to 3DSM, but tutorials as good as this are worth checking out anyway!


=Sealz= Mod 22 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
=SEALZ=ŧ§WHIP have mailed in about their first Ghost Recon mod. The tiny 30Kb mod promises a M-24 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle with Sound Suppression with a 7x scope. There is also a new UN Special Forces Sniper to use in online play. Visit =SEALZ= and click on the downloads section.


November Rain 22 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Check out this awesome clan site, Codename November Rain. If you don't have broadband you may have to wait a minute or two for the flash intro - but it is worth it. Not only that, but they have three brand new Ghost Recon missions already!


Specialist Bio's 20 Nov. 2001 | Jester
The best round up of Specialist information has just been posted at There are a couple of images and a lot of info on each Specialist, right down to the length of finger in one case! Check it out.


Voodoo Menu's Fixed 20 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Judging by our mailbag this morning, Riptide's patch for the Voodoo Menu problem works a treat!

"YES, IT WORKED! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You guys are the greatest!" Greg M

Don't thank us though, thank Riptide - the most popular person in the community this week! Read the original article here.


Modding the Reticule 20 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
RAT_SpOoK sent in this tip to assist those having problems with Friendly Fire in Ghost Recon. Modding the colour of the Reticule can make it easier on the eye when recognising friend from foe, here's how you do it.

  • Close Ghost Recon
  • \Program Files\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon
  • Open options.xml in Notepad
  • Find <ReticuleIFFColorR>255</ReticuleIFFColorR>
  • There are 3 lines, one each for Red Green and Blue
  • Change the numbers to change the colours

For example 255,0,0 would be Red, which works quite well. For a handy list of colour codes check this page out. [added to FAQ]

Voodoo Joy? 20 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Following on from yesterdays article on the menu issue with Voodoo cards, Riptide sent in a fix today!

"I have here a fix for the blurry text in the menus of Ghost Recon that many people are experiencing with older video cards(Voodoo3). What it does is take out one of the two fonts stored in the font texture so that the card can handle the size of the image without it being rescaled. There are two sets of files in the archive. One removes the larger font and uses the smaller one. The other does the inverse of that. I'd suggest using the smaller font since the larger one can make the text too big and it ends up getting chopped off at the end of it's allocated space in the menus.

You can grab the file here, and contact Riptide here, also let us know if the fix worked for you! [added to FAQ]


Voodoo Misery 19 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Unless you have been so busy playing Ghost Recon 24/7 you can't have helped but notice that there are alot of unhappy Voodoo bunnys out there. Voodoo cards are not supported for Ghost Recon, and there are problems as there are no Voodoo drivers for DX8.0. Voodoo 3000 cards can play Ghost Recon, but the menus are unreadable.

There are two schools of thought on this. Camp One says "Step into the light and replace that dusty old card!", and Camp Two says "Hey, there are thousands of us Voodoo owners, why can't we play!"

While it is true Voodoo cards no longer have (official) driver support, and there are more capable, inexpensive cards available, the frustration of being able to actually run the game, but not read the menus, is a very real one.

Anyway, if you are in Camp Two, you have 3 options; post your frustration in the Official Forums, sign the Voodoo petition, or buy a new (64Mb) graphics card!

Before you decide, check out this current thread in the official forums, the first post sums up the situation nicely, and the following million messages are worth a read!

Bill Brown Tracks 14 Nov. 2001 | Rocky

This was due entirely to the superb Bill Brown music that plays during the mission menu's. Now you can listen to 7 Ghost Recon tracks on the Official Bill Brown Site, where you can download or stream them!

  Heavy Weapons Mod 14 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Fancy attaching a M203 to the SAW, or SVD? Well you can with this tiny Weapons Mod from Paul, which is entirely unrealistic - but a heap of fun!


Reviews 14 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
Gamespot have bucked the trend of awarding Ghost Recon a superlative review, and awarded it a mediocre 7.3 - which they class as "good", even though their readers award it a more encouraging 8.4. That 8.4 figure will probably rise dramatically as people who have actually seen the game cast their vote - people like you!

Although the Review sums up with "Ghost Recon has some real strengths" they failed to detail any of those strengths, and instead focus entirely on negative points, in a pretty unconvincing manner - especially if you have seen the game! A strange review indeed.

Redressing the balance PC Gamer today called ’Ghost Recon ‘The Best Tactical Shooter EVER!’ adding, ‘Spectacular sound, great mission variety, intense gameplay. Overall, a brilliant piece of work.‘

The IGN Review went even further saying ‘Simply put: do not miss out on this one’ adding, ‘the game is highly polished, marvelously fun and unexpectedly believable.'

  Who Is That? 14 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
If you have been playing Ghost Recon, and think you recognise that sultry female voice during Mission Briefings, wonder no more! You have probably heard her before exercising her voice talents in Mech Warrior II, so now you know!

  The Best Ever! 13 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
The media have gone Ghost Recon Crazy! PC Gamer have their review all lined up to hit the newstands later this month, with Ghost Recon emblazoned across the full cover. "The Best Tactical Shooter EVER", click the image and check it out!

Editor 7 Nov. 2001 | Rocky
IGOR was mentioned in the Official Ghost Recon FAQ a while back, but there were no details, and the subject was classed Top Secret. We managed to find out back then, that it was infact an Editor for Ghost Recon, which allowed limited modding capabilities. Well now Ghost Recon Retreat have the scoop on this tool, Snicker and his team will be putting it through its paces and delivering a report on what exactly it can, and cannot do. Oh, and they have a piccie to - go see.

As a side note here's how they introduced the article

"Infatti mentre i morti viventi barcollano ubriachi per le strade delle città, ho aggiunto la prima parte della scheda dedicata agli armamenti e alle tute di Tom Clancy's: Ghost Recon"

Which babel translated to....

"In fact while the living dead men stagger drunk for the roads of the cities, I have added first part of the card dedicated to the armaments and to the coverallses of Tom Clancy' s: Ghost Recon."

Sounds like a Halloween reference!
