INSTALL REQUIRED MODS

-Download Navy seals.
---Unzip the pack and run the exe file, point it to your Ghost Recon folder.
---Now unzip the 6Mb 2.1 zip file. Either unzip it directly to the Navy Seals folder in your Ghost Recon Mods folder, or do as I do and unzip it somewhere on your hardrive then drag that entire Navy Seals folder into the Mods folder. You'll be asked to confirm the overwrite, do this and you are done.

-Download Frostbite v1.2.
-Download Frostbite v1.3 patch.
---Run the v1.2 installer, it will auto-install to your Ghost Recon mods folder.
---Run the v1.3 installer, it will auto-install to your Ghost Recon mods folder.

-Download Call Callout
---Unzip the exe file and run it to install the mod.
-Download Tournament 2009
---Unzip the files and drag the Tourney2009 folder to the Ghost Recon mods. Note that the unzipper creates two folders. It is vital you drag the Tourney2009 folder that contains all the mod files, not the top level folder.

-Download ALL MISSIONS
---Unzip the missions and put them in the tournament mod folder inside the "missions" folder.

Check the mods are installed correctly by going to your Ghost Recon mods folder and check it looks like this screenshot. You should every folder not blurred out in this screenshot as shown.

INSTALL THE MISSIONS

When you receive the .mis mission files from Lightspeed, simply put them in the mission folder of the Tournament mod folder called Tourney2009.

ACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH THE RULES AND SCORING

Read Lightspeeds post here, it has vital information about scoring.

PLAYING THE TOURNAMENT

-Launch Ghost Recon
--- Go to Options > Mods and activate the required mods. For Missions 1-6 you only need Navy Seals and the Tournament Mod. For the rest of the missions you will need Frostbite and Cold Call out activated. See the Screenshots below for clarification.

MISSIONS 1-6

MISSIONS 7-9

SET THE CORRECT OPTIONS

> DIFFICULTY - ELITE
> RESPAWNS - OFF
> THREAT INDICATOR - OFF
> IFF NAMES - OFF
> TIMER - 60 minutes.

These settings are found in the Gameplay Options tab, see the circled areas in the screenshot below to see how it should look.

BEGIN MISSION!!

Before you insert, make sure you check this forum for the mission breifing post from Lightspeed, it can often contain important information!

Click Quick Mission and set the options as shown below, i.e Elite Mission.

Posted Image

Now click start!

Read the mission brief in game, and select your squads loadout appropriately. When you are ready, set your watch for a 60 minute mission, then start the mission.

AFTER SECOND ATTEMPT

When the mission ends click the SAVE REPLAY button in the after action screen. Name the file with your name, the mission number and score.

Once you have your best mission score after your second attempt, go to the save/replay folder in the Tournament mods folder and rename the replay file as shown in the example below, and email the replay file to Lightspeed at lightspeedgr@gmail.com with the following details.

Replay should be named - e.g apexmodmission4 (your name and the mission number)
ApexMod - Mission 4 - 70 points (your name, the mission number, and the score)
The zip / rar file should say apexmod_mission4.rar or .zip

Hope that helps!!! Have fun!!!

Thanks Rocky - players just make you save first replay with appropriate name if you think you might use the scores otherwise you risk overwriting the replay.

Hi All.

FYI, there is NO mission folder in the tourney folder once it has been extracted, so the way I have got the mission into the game is to place the file sent to me by Lightspeed in following folder and then this works:-

ghost recon\mods\origmiss\mission.

Before it wasnt coming up in the quick mission list, but now due to perseverance (and some panicking) it works.

Hope this helps.

CJ

close but not quite CJ.

make a folder in you Tourney 2009 mod called Mission folder and place .mis file in there.

that way all the missions for this mod will live in the correct mod folder.

your way does work but you want to keep missions for this mod in the right place. ;)

I did not see a time limit mentioned in the briefing for mission one.
I am assuming 60 minutes?

Also if I am correct, Quick Mission has no option to set a timer.
Assuming again that I will have to have a clock or watch in the room to allot myself 60 minutes for the mission.
Or does the mission have scripting that ends the mission at 60 minutes?

Sorry for any confusion. 0:)

I said in my post above to set a watch for the 60 minutes.

I can't understand why there is no mission folder, if that is the case I will fix a new download in a couple of hours.

Quote Lightspeed;-

for those of you who downloaded this mod yesterday - plz redownload.

and you must make a Mission folder and add that to your mod.

missions are placed in the mission folder.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This was modded to add the folder i think as I got it as soon as link came out and my version HASNT got a missions folder.......so there !!!!

lol.

Obviously the new one has but it looks to me that the mission folder was added to it on the 4th looking at the date inside the tourney folder........you cant fool me you sly dog !

ok in terms of timer - Quick Mission ends after 1 hour by default so just forget looking at clocks.
