  1. @Cheimison, Ground Branch will have 8-man co-op. It's now available at Steam as an Early Access game. It looks decent and so far, it seems, feedback is good. This game looks like it might be more similar to Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield than Ghost Recon but we'll see. If it sort of adheres to "tactical realism", GR fans may be happy. I'm keeping an eye on it and am wishing them the best. I became a supporter a LONG time ago. @Milgeek, isn't it funny that when you hear some news about a "tactical realism" shooter, the first place you think to go to talk about it is ghostrecon.net? That's exa
  2. I decided to load up OGR and do the whole SP campaign again. Having a blast! The only mod I'm using is Heroes Unleashed. I own Arma 3 so I might look into GR mods for it but I don't know anything about them as of yet. In 2016, I played a lot of Insurgency but it's not really tactical. In 2017, I played a lot of GRW but it definitely lacks something that OGR has.
  3. Most definitely, the most memorable gaming moment in my life was playing OGR. Before OGR, I had never played a military combat game nor had I ever experienced online multi-player. I had no idea what it was like. My best buddy had the game too so he convinced me to meet him in OGR online. I remember clicking the join game button and... ... suddenly my world was black and the Mission 1 castle was glowing bright green in front of me (NVGs) . I turned and was startled to see my friend (GR NPC) standing next to me and then hearing his voice! It was a total "holy crap" moment. I had en
  4. LOL! Couldn't had said it better myself! If you can find the right people, the game will make you a convert. Just sayin' tbis game is definitely worth investigating. Definitely reminds me of the golden days of co-op gaming. Actually the bot training can be very hard! You will be flanked! BTW, depending on server setup, if the current session sucks, start a vote and change the session.
  5. "Do you ever play it with friends?" Absolutely!... by far the best way to play. This game is completely integrated into the Steam Community environment so communication with friends and setting up games is very, very easy. There's a decent server browser as well. With Steam, you get statuses on all your friends...buddy is offline, buddy is in menu, buddy is in game XXXXXXX, buddy is arguing with his wife about how much time he spends gaming, etc. I'm doing my first from-scratch PC build in about 7 years. Going to use my current PC as an Insurgency dedicated server hopefully. The game does
  6. I haven't posted in quite a while here but I wanted to say that I gave Insurgency a go and IMHO it's the best co-op military shooter since Ghost Recon. It's hard to tell from many of the videos posted because experienced players who've played the maps 8,000 times tend to move very fast...as they already know every possible detail about them. As such, it doesn't look nearly as tactical (or enjoyable) as it really is. But that's PvP...something I never play. But this game has co-op and in cooperative mode, this game has the framework to be as methodical, tactical and co-operative as you want
  7. Yes, I can... https://plus.google.com/photos/106192396675975196669/albums/5927331459207158161?authkey=CILeu5D4rsfbngE
  8. I got back on Sept. 2. Moscow was great! I had a blast. Upon entering Red Square, I was immediately able to orient myself from my recollections from GR...though a lot of it is different. Theres a temporary outdoor "arena" area for performances in the middle of the open area. And that building with the super-long corridors and arches is a mega-mall called GUM. I took as many photos as I wanted...no problem. I recommend going at night - its even more impressive all lit up. I would never drive in Moscow. My Russian friend had 4 hours to go from my airport to her airport and she missed plane
  9. I'll be visiting Red Square in about 10 days. I've seen some pics of Red Square and the insides of some of the buildings and I think GR portrays them faithfully. There is that building with very long corridors that I have seen in photos. I get the feeling that I'm going to get goosebumps when I go there. I will be sure to tell my Russian friend that I've whacked many Russian soldiers there before! Especially these days as the relations between our two countries are so warm and friendly. It's definitely going to be an ah-ha moment!
  10. Wombat, we both use Win 7 and that directory structure does not exist on my PC (substituting for Don obviously). VirtualStore was the last thing I found. And also, my IKE.LOGs were in my main GR folder, not my Users "folder area".
  11. Turns out getting us both on the same version of Heroes didn't help. Whomever is the client always crashes. I tried to get an IKE.log from my buddy but there were none in his GR folder. I had one but I don't want to refer to it as it was when we were on different versions. Will post back when I have a decent IKE.log. I'm playing this mod alone and it's completely awesome!!!
  12. Turns out that I had the b6 version and my buddy had the b8 version. I assume the b8 version is newer. Will let you know how it works up after I get the latest version.
  13. Wasn't sure if this was the right thread but I saw some crash posts here... A buddy and I are playing GR co-op with Heroes Unleashed with Windows 7. But whomever is not hosting always crashes upon joining the other's server. We have loaded only DS, IT and HU with priorities correct. It crashes every time a few seconds after the client joins the hose. Any suggestions? We really want to play this mod!
  14. To be honest, I don't think we'll ever see anything again that can be classified as a tactical shooter. If the core gameplay can't be boiled down to a game that can be played on a smart phone, I don't think it will be developed. Look at the latest mega-successful military combat games out now. You watch the vids on Youtube and there's absolutely nothing new or novel about their core gameplay. If we do see another tactical shooter, I doubt it very much that it'll come from Ubisoft. From a fellow programmer, good luck with your careers RSE guys and gals.
