    I love this. It'd be really cool with commentary added. Used to get all nerdy and do like this back in the day. You play online at all? We do co-op and are trying to find people who still love this great old game.

    I'm always down for some coop. Just hard to find people still playing the original.

    Man, it'd be awesome to do this all over again in coop. Once you are KIA, you're out! See if we can get through all three campaigns, or see how far we get.


  2. Here we go:

    GHOST PLATOON (From the start)
    -Alpha squad-
    Wayne Hill - DEMO
    Ed Long - SNIPER

    -Bravo squad-
    Omar Guerrero - RIFLEMAN
    Jorge Martinez - DEMO

    No quick saves or loads will be used.

    MISSION 01 – WATCHFUL YEOMAN

    OBJECTIVES
    1. Seize Plantation Grounds
    2. Secure First Package
    3. Secure Second Package
    X. No Team Casualties

    OVERVIEW
    So back to it after almost a year.
    Mission was going well at the start, but unfortunatly the AI controlled Omar was hit and did not return fire as we opened up on two tangos just after retrieving package #2. Bit of a shame.
    This mission is tense and quite difficult, the fog makes it hard to see enemies and you can be taken out from quite a distance.
    I did have to use the AT to clear some rooms, as sometimes these require split-second reactions when clearing normally.
    I seem to always lose teammates in the first mission. Hopefully things get better from here...

    AFTER-ACTION
    -Alpha squad-
    Wayne Hill - DEMO
    Ed Long - SNIPER

    -Bravo squad-
    Omar Guerrero - RIFLEMAN [DEAD]
    Jorge Martinez - DEMO

  3. It's been too long, I'm returning to finish what I started!

    Some of you might remember, but back in 2017 I decided to do something different with my my annual Ghost Recon campaign play-through.

    One, I decided to record it and two, I decided to play it differently by using the same soldiers throughout the whole campaign. No quick saves and a KIA is permanent. The only soldiers I could introduce were any unlocked specialist.

    My last video was in March 2017, where I finished the Desert Siege campaign. Now after all this time, I started playing again, this time I'm tackling Island Thunder!

    My previous entries:

    Ghost Recon

    Desert Siege

    I just finished Mission 01, and already I have a KIA. Uh oh. I have really slow internet (LOL Australia), so the video for mission 01 is currently uploading...

    Now to finish the fight!

  11. Following on from my Ghost Recon campaign play-through. I've continued on with the Desert Siege expansion.
    Again, I've only used the same soldiers from the beginning and using no quick saves or loads.
    This time round, I've completed the challenge already! And what a blast I had.
    Event better, not one KIA! I had an early-on wounded solider, but after pulling him out of one mission for recovery, the rest of the campaign was a success.

    If you're interested, please sit back and enjoy the videos. Feel free to subscribe, like and share my videos around!
    Next up, Island Thunder!

  12. Well, I just finished the Desert Siege campaign tonight. Same soldiers throughout and not 1 KIA!

    I have them all recorded, just need to edit and upload. I'm on the search for good free video editing software that's capable of 1440p. Everything free doesn't seem to allow that. Else I'll just revert to the YouTube online editor again.

    Once I've got the videos sorted, I'll create a new thread :)


  13. Hi All,

    I'm after some recommendations of free video editing software. 

    I want to upload my gameplay videos to youtube and retain the 1440p resolution.

    My last gameplay videos reverted to 1080p. I used the online youtube video editor and recently found out that only provides 1080p max.

     

    What free video editing software would allow me to to do that. 

    I don't do anything special with my editing. Basic transitions, intro music overlay and text title screen.


    Cheers


  14. CAMPAIGN COMPLETE
    Wow what a fun ride that was. I play this campaign at least once a year. This was the most fun I've had. Usually, I use quick saves/loads to redo parts where I get killed or lose soldiers. This was so much more fun.

    There is a reason I continue to come back to this game and it's because that after 15+ years, in my eyes, this game still holds up. 

    Yes the graphics and overall presentation is dated, but the game play has not been beaten. The tension, the difficulty, the actual feeling of loss when a friendly is KIA. Nothing has even come close.

    This game is all about tactics, taking it slow, having your finger on the trigger and maintaining situational awareness at all times.

    It was a shame none of the starting line-up survived, but I did stick to my original challenge.

    OVERALL CASUALTIES/WOUNDED
    Richard Weinstein – DEMO [KIA - Mission 01]
    Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [WOUNDED - Mission 01]
    Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN [KIA - Mission 03]
    John Cosner – RIFLEMAN [KIA - Mission 05]
    Dennis Martin – DEMO [KIA - Mission 05]
    Brian Duan – SNIPER [KIA - Mission 05]
    Jack Stone - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 08]
    Klaus Henkel - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 08]
    Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [KIA - Mission 09]
    Will Jacobs - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [KIA - Mission 09]
    Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED - Mission 12]
    Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED - Mission 12]

    FAVOURITE MAP
    Mission 12 - Ivory Horn

    BEST PLAY
    The take-down of 3 tangos in Mission 15 - White Razor (Skip to 3m:26s)

    BEST SOLIDER
    Nigel Tunney (For staying alive so long)
    ...also Astra Galinsky (Mainly the AI controlled sniper cover)

     

     

    I'm going to give Wildlands some play now. 
    But I'll be back with the Desert Siege, followed by Island Thunder. 
    Til then.
    Cheers.

  15. MISSION 15 - White Razor

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Relieve pinned down troops
    2. Take Nikolskaya Tower
    3. Take Spasskaya Tower
    4. Avoid Civilian casualties

    OVERVIEW

    Mission complete. And that's a wrap.
    That's probably my best play-through of this mission and campaign overall.

    N. Tunney has been my best solider, racking up all of the medals! Scary parts here with 3 tanks to take out and only 1 injured DEMO.

    Time to go home Ghosts.

    AFTER-ACTION

    -Alpha squad-

    Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]
    Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [STILL WOUNDED]

    -Bravo squad-

    Astra Galinsky - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] 
    Linda Cohen - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] 

     


  16. MISSION 14 - Willow Bow

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Take north pass
    2. Take south pass
    3. take top of the hill
    4. Neutralise Russian camp

    OVERVIEW

    I tell you what, the last soldier in the Russian camp had me on edge. Couldn't even seem him, taken out my A. Galinsky.
    Nicely executed mission, even with N. Tunney limping away. I actually could have sit him out. Forgot that there was actually no enemy armour. 

    Well, here we go. Final mission Ghosts. Let's do this!

    AFTER-ACTION

    -Alpha squad-

    Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]
    Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [STILL WOUNDED]

    -Bravo squad-

  17. MISSION 13 - Arctic Sun

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Secure control tower
    2. Destroy S37 Berkut
    3. Destroy KA-50 Hokum
    4. Get to extraction zone

    OVERVIEW

    Another great OGR mission. All a success and no injuries or KIA's. I really need to rest out Tunney, but I won't be able to now. I need him for the next mission (armour) and final mission. Going to get really tough now.

    Rested out Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] and introduced Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST] for this mission.

    AFTER-ACTION

    -Alpha squad-

    Scott Ibrahim - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]
    Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [STILL WOUNDED]

  18. MISSION 12 - Ivory Horn

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Plant demo in sub pen 51
    2. Plant demo in sub pen 52
    3. Get to extraction zone
    4. Plant demo in fuel depo

    OVERVIEW

    That was intense. Alpha squad completely wounded, but no KIA's. My only demo N. Tunney received a couple of hits, so did S. Grey. I'm going to have to leave N. Tunney in for mission 13, as I need demo charges.
    The MP5 is one of my all time favourite SMGs. Except in this game. You'll see just as S. Grey is hit, I return fire, the shots land on the tango, but he doesn't drop! My heart was beating fast!

    I was also impressed with A. Galinsky. Mostly controlled by AI, she took out quite a few tangos from her sniping position.

    I decided to end the mission by clearing all enemies. I knew once I planted the last charge, another group of enemy soldiers would charge and I couldn't afford the pressure.

    One of my favourite missions in the OGR campaign!

    AFTER-ACTION

    -Alpha squad-

    Susan Grey – RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED]
    Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST] [WOUNDED]
