  1. Welcome to wonderful world of being able to modifiy what the developers did...and GR stands tall in being a well modded game. If I were gonna make any suggestions on mods, I think you should look through the extremely long list of campaigns and missions and choose a few of the older mods to play first...then begin to move through the history of the mods...it would be an eye opening experience for sure...old mods like any campaign by Jack57, Frostbite was the first true fan based Expansion Pack and set the bar for all to follow, if you are an expert level player, 12 Weeks campaign/mission pack by Right-Hand will prep you for anything to follow...Mission HX by Harntrox is a must for gametypes...and so on.
  2. Howdy, Well I have given up getting GR on this machine for some 3D clarity for now, but I just got on mis old PC, the one I scripted P2 on, and there it was, a P2 splash screen staring me in the face...2009. Long time...long time since I opened IGOR with INTENT...BUT, that is exactly what I was doing...took one look and realized I need to read even the most basic info for now...5 years worth of forgetting and all...anyway, I 've been bored lately and figure giving you guys a chill might be fun...so, at least one mission forthcoming...I feel too lazy to get all involved with too many modding aspects so you will get either a single mission for SP, COOP or a mission pack in the old migryder tradition...hopefully the scripting will live up to reputation. At this point, if any of you have a map that has been created in the last five years or a fav map from old...and would like to see a new mission on it, then please let me know here...espicially any new turf to script on...
  3. Belated Happy Birthday to your son Giampi! Hey, thanks for the kind words above too! Don't know that I ever surpassed the Master of GR action though...in my mind Right-Hand was The Man. Jack-57 gave us a lot of great missions as well. Then again GR probably has the best and longest list of mods n missions from day one to now than any other game..I only palce HL2 on the same shelf alongside GR for great modding(less the number of mods) and most of that is due to LEON...too bad he never did a GR mod. Probably should recognize the other Military Simms for a lot of great modding but don't really play em myself, to me GR was the perfect Hybrid if you will. I'm glad some folks are having a time with those missions! Thanks for your hard work wombat! I must get that new copy and play your mod!! I'm too broke to buy any new games anyway..been Far Crying 1 and Crysis 2-3ing my ass off, is there a hidden developer pattern there or more like an obvious one. BTW Tommygoff, though mission 2 in that Guatemala pack was the first full mission I scripted for GR...can't believe I failed to make those AI invincible though...thought I did that for all in all...hope it got sorted out, the border check was a good piece of advice BTW...I'm afraid if I tried to script a new mission I have forgotten way too much to make it good, but if I do get that new copy I WILL SCRIPT AN ADDON MISSION for P2 and maybe one or two other stand alones as well...who knows.
  4. Hey Wombat! Glad to see you've done this! No reason to dld right now without being able to play, unless I go back to my old machine...but think I might wait and get a new copy of GR so I can install on this machine and play in 3D...anyway, thanks for keeping it alive bud...I check in once in awhile but figured my mission pack stuff had fallen to way side and was wondering if anybody even plays P2 these days...IMO a lot of great work was done by the group of guys who worked on that mod....looking forward to catching your new effects...watched the above vid..nice retro for me. Anybody hear from Phlookian these days? I've seen some great scketch art by Natswana on Facebook and hear from you once n awhile but thats been it...a wink n a nod to any coop team who can win Glass Frog! I beat it many times on SP, but then I kinda knew where they were and what they were doing....guess with the ending issues for coop it did not make the cut...tell the Night Hawks hello! happy hunting all..and play Phlook's Elmer Fudd mod on his wonderful Black Wolf map! Hey KRP! Been too long bud! Thanks for all your help back n the day. Guys, my missions all carry the quality of KRP56's dedicated testing and critique....with the exception of maybe the first one I scripted.
  5. tell Scott I said hello, he's the only GR.net member I've met in person...we had a good time when he came to these parts..if I ever make it to your part of the world I'll let ya know ahead of time...maybe you could just release that Fest mod, might be a way for newer members to get at all those missions in one package? Up to NH team. thanks Rocky, hope you get to see it through at some point, thanks for those write ups you did for the missions you played...now back to wombat's mod...go for it wombat.
  6. yea, they were very strict about CENTCOM, have you considered any of the stuff that DTD did, they had some maps IIRC...I wanted to do an addon mission for P2 using Battlebourne's woodland map but I always had problems getting all the stuff to render properly with the winter effects that somebody did so I never got it done...to do any work in IGOR I would have to buy a new GR copy since I lost my key...well, I could work on my old machine, the one that housed all of the P2 work and other stuff I worked on...but I hate to fire it up even as it always has tons of updating to do and I'm limited for bandwidth..yet I have NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 and really want to see GR using that, especially some of those winter maps...I'm curious if anybody else even plays P2, I never see any posts about it when I visit...I hope that modders are at least using some of the assets that are in that mod for their own creations...I don't know if Rocky got around to finishing the SP. Do you NH ever play Africa Burning or any of those mission packs? I guess I never fixed Glass Frog(Guatemala...) to complete if ya won playing coop..if you want you can take a stab at it and release that fix...now there is a coop challenge...hope you get your PMod released. Keep the dream alive.
  7. What, no bridge map from P2? Just messin' with friend...looks good wombat, see what you can do to get it released,..hopefully the CENTCOM team would be open to some modding of their work this late in the game? you know I seem to recall that smoke and fire can be set with some parameters..or there are at least choices as to which effect file is used post explosion...been a long time since I looked into IGOR related affairs though...can you reach Phlookian? He might have advice...
  8. Right Hand, Sleeper, Jack57, El Oso...those four names alone can bring you many hrs of wonderment, and they merely represent the tip of the 'berg...I'll add another cause w/o him my desire to do an Unofficial Expansion Pack would never have seen the light of day...Phlookian. The folks one or all mentioned earlier also had great influence on that mod and/or all of my missions...the names begin flood into my mind...thanks to them all for helping to make GR what it is...
  9. Good to see you guys working hard on this, been a long time for me to play or do any work in IGOR, but I see the game and modding it are still alive and in good hands with you old timers and newer modders to boot. I can't even load my game on the newest machine cause I've lost the key and have to buy GR org at least...I saw that COG GOG or whatever they're called had it during the holidays for about 4 USD...maybe I'll dld it from them..my other discs DS n IT should work I guess.
  10. yea, like painting the rings on Corsair fans as I saw in a build vid on their site that was done with the green C70 case...might be best for the key board, but that mouse appears to be pretty awesome and is designed by BMW...I have two cheap(<30 USD each) Logitechs though that I like more than any Razer I have had and I've gone through three of those including the Bushmaster that lasted no time...so I'm skeptical about high end fancy nancy mice...course painting a keyboard would be a bit more involved...is there anything NOT on YouTube? ....I spoke with a kid at a store and we got discussing YouTube...I used green screen building as an example of how it seems there is nothing you can't find there and it turned out he was thinking of making one, so he went there and found all he needed to... I've seen a discussion on staining PC component parts with crafts dye..can't remember where though... did I mention I ordered a system test software? Its called Metro 2033 he he...$9.95 couple days ago, now $6.49 I've read in the GPU reviews that single card systems have a hard time with that one at ultra high resolutions...shoot, I can't wait to see the CoP mods S.M.R.T.E.R. Pripyat 0.41/AtmosFear 3.0 patched together with this stuff..the blow outs and Psi Storms are already awesome on my current rig. Then maybe smartphoneusr will finish 0.45 soon with all the access to older STALKER series maps and fan made maps as well not to mention new mutants, weapons to be found about the maps, and such...hat off to him...he's doing that massive mod alone... http://www.moddb.com/mods/smrter-pripyat/page/2#comments
  11. Dag! I wish I had read all these comments earlier! Been really busy having to get out of here by Halloween (we sold our family land holdings which my house is on)! Thanks for the suggestions/comments! I would have had to give serious consideration to your HDD suggestion Dannik, but alas, the 2TB is ordered... I ordered all the stuff but the PSU, I did find an 850W for half price if purchased from the mfg...it received a decent review over at Hardware Secrets so I'll probably order it... That Crucial 16GB 1866 kit seems popular! ...newegg had it, ran out, Amazon had it, ran out, newegg got more and reduced the price to $129.99, then so did Amazon at the same price...They got 5 kits in and I bought the last one of those in just a few days time... peripherals ordered - ASUS VG278HE 27" 3D ready monitor NVIDIA 3D VISION 2 kit those two things seem like a gamble at best, but I will get 144Hz/2 ms for 2D...wish I could afford a high end IPS...might have gone that way instead... possible additions - Well I have mice/keyboards lying about, but later I may get a Tt Sports Level 10 mouse if only cause it can be gotten in military green to match close to the case - back in the 70s we US Army pukes called that OD Green - as in " over dirt green" if we had a paint brush in hand... Tt Sports Meka GUNNIT keyboard in same green scheme...if it ever becomes available... OS - WIN 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit...currently have Win 7 Pro 64 on this machine, but it was a free upgrade from VISTA Ult back in '09...I was told by a technician at a Tiger Direct store that I could install that w/o registering it, then reinstall and register it or something like that, but I got lazy and bought the system builder version of Home....hopefully I'll be able to upgrade to Win 8 for cheap IF I want to go that way..unsure of that for now... gotta admit its hard not to take that mobo out and gawk at it...but I did get the manual out and am reading it while waiting for the other stuff to arrive and for the US gov, HUD namely, to get out of my way and let me close on my new place...2.5 acres with a permanently placed double wide built in 2008 for $43,000.00....OMG he's trailer trash! ... It was a foreclosure owned by above mentioned agency...I heard from my future neighbors that the previous owner hit a dog while pounding the throttle on his crotch rocket...no helmet!
  12. Yea, but I fear the engine may block the tele command from the vehicle...can you unload a team only? man I need to get back in IGOR and try to remember some of what I learned about scripting...
  13. Yipee! Today is the day for the US!
  14. Can you load the platoon on one then tele a team to some zone subsequently loading them on another helo?
  15. Well I will attempt my first build and will also try to learn some OC stuff.. my first two acquisitions today from Micro Center in Dallas... MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard INTEL i5 3570K CPU will probably go with.... Corsair C70 case...military green he he MSI GTX 680 Lightning GPU ( yea I'll fan boy it up I guess) or maybe two 660 Ti cards in SLI....MFG undetermined Xigmatek Dark Knight II or Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E heatsink if air or something like Corsair H70 CORE to allow fan choice if liquid.. Crucial 256GB M4 SSD Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200 RPM, 6 GB/s, 64 mb cache HDD Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB(2x8) DDR-3 1866 or maybe just the 8 gig kit...yea, the board allows highly OC'd RAM but I like Crucial memory... PSU undertermined... Suggestions welcome...
  16. SmartCart Service Systems, I don't own smartphone or pad but it was created by my nephew and is becoming popular among golf courses throughout the US and abroad, he has been invited to China to discuss around 300 courses signing up for it there....it allows players to use their mobile devices to order services from the club house...and of course score keeping...
  17. OK so here are a few mods/modders that I believe will introduce you to the GR modding linage and that stick in my mind as greatness...any great mods that followed owe homage to these mods or authors...I know that I attempted to carry their lessons/legacies into my own modding of GR... Any mod by DTD - this modding group help define and set the bar for quality GR modding! Try IDF...or use DTD Team Mod for playing other campaigns... Any mod by Jack57 - he set the bar for innovative mission scripting...try Saving Private Ryan Navy Seals 2.1 - some of the great early modders involved in this one... Free Lybia - see comment for Navy Seals... Any mod by Right Hand! - This guy set the bar for scripting intense yet fun as hell GR missions! Try 12 Weeks or the single mission Eye of The Needle which won a scripting contest here! It will prep you to survive any GR mission created since... his mods are great for coop Frostbite once again, some of the great GR modders involved and some of the greatest winter maps! Anything Harntrox was involved in....he pushed the limits of the GR engine... I know there are many others that I should recognize, but Ill end here, yet give you a challenge - if you are a GR Elite survivor I invite you play.. Guatemala: Ides of March and/or Africa Burning, two 10 or so mission packs but with story lines created by yours truly and the rest of the Ghost Rangers..and inspired by those early works of all of the above listed authors, especially Right Hand...I enjoyed playing the final versions of these as much or more than I did scripting them!
  18. I've never had a problem with custom levels in this game on this system before, but I've been going through the Bogie and JohnTC02 campaigns and experiencing Access Violation errors in all when loading a scripted save at times as well as ones like this one I've had at least half a dozen times at the early stages of the Chaotic Refuse mission in The Vitale Campaign...I'm using Rahnmans_mod V4.01 BTW... Crash in application version: 30899.3048 data\lib\units\ai\soldier\scontrollogics.dsf(-1): cant find member: _weapon_is_silenced in type <ShotgunWeapon> SCRIPT STACK: data\lib\units\ai\soldier\scontrollogics.dsf(0) data\lib\managers\aihivebrain.dsf(0) data\lib\managers\aihivebrain.dsf(0) data\lib\managers\aihivebrain.dsf(0) data\lib\managers\aihivebrain.dsf(0) data\lib\managers\aihivebrain.dsf(0) data\lib\setups\setup.dsf(0) data\level\level.dsf(0) Renderer: threaded Physics : threaded I've used this mod with all those campaigns before?! I don't think I had COMODO installed though, I went in there and made all those bundles trusted files and unchecked the key board as monitored for direct access since I was suspeecting the stupid win hot key as a culprit...that did not change anything...any ideas? mig Update -well it seems that the report above was only happening for that mission using Rahnmans 4.01, I restarted the mission with Weapons Masters and had no problems completing it, I then went back to Rahnmans mod and am now 1 plus misssions up w/o any more issues...I did DLD another copy of his mod and installed it but that did not fix that issue above....I've had no other crashes with loading saves scripted or quick since either..BTW the mod was always installed properly too.
  19. Thanks for the reply John, Well I have that problem. but it seems that nobody has ever reported it so there is no real need to go in and change the map at this point...I now know how to get past it for sure anyway..some sort of overhang there...now that I finished the campaign, I will redownload it and try a new install if I choose to replay it in the future...maybe I got some kind of corruption on that map...I'll update you if I do that. mig
  20. well if there is anything here about this I have yet to find it...so, am I the only one who has so much trouble accessing the roof to complete the Chemical Stores B objective on the Ghost Town operation map??? I've played the campaign at least three times including this trip through, so I've gotten up the steps before, but I do remember having a spot on the steps where I run into some kind of collision wall and have a really hard time gettin on up there...this time it is just not working out and it is things like this that make me angry at Ghost Recon franchise for not having at least a small jump capability...I state that because I've solved similar things in other games using that...like maybe hoppin up on that ledge that runs along the wall there and by-passin' that part of the stairs or going up the rail itself...anyway...Mitchell nor Brown can get past that issue this time..he goes up then turns left...I've tried using side step, different levels of stance..I even tried walking up backwards...nothing works..I'm stuck!! Maybe I could push him or another past that, but I don't think he'll go and place the C4! BTW looking at the structure, it seems the right hand rail of the steps passes through the above mentioned ledge on the biulding wall at the sticky spot, so maybe this causes it? Love your work JohnTCO2! OK, I just got it done by fast crawling all the way up, good thing I already blew that guard up or certain death for sure... mig
  21. When you are poor you do what you can with gaming... this one is tougher than most HL2 stuff...I don't like the way combat plays out to be honest, yet they don't just do the Combine statue...its worth a trip through...Vorts are enemies a la HL... its pretty much a total conversion too. http://www.wix.com/jourev/1187#!__episode-1
  22. might prove interesting... http://www.moddb.com/mods/fall-of-saigon
  23. I sure hope it all ends up with a release...I must have my STALKER fix...either the new version of the retail or smrtphoneusr getting his S.M.R.T.E.R. Pripyat 0.45 released soon..I fear neither will happen in a timely fashion though.. BTW I guess you all know you can follow the goings on of both on Facebook and I think Twitter... 0.45 info...at Moddb... http://www.moddb.com/mods/smrter-pripyat
