    Thank you very much for your work, after trying your Mission, and then I modified it myself according to what you modified. I think Cinematic Reset Time Set=3 is very good for me, and the 2 you set still shakes a little.
    After you modified it, I think it’s much better than before, and everything else is acceptable. Only the shaking of the death animation makes me nauseous. Thank you very much for your work. I really don’t know what to do without you. Maybe just accept it.
    But after you showed up, you showed me hope, thank you very much.🤩

    You're most welcome, glad it worked for you.  Better, is that you could tune it to suit yourself.

    Now you can apply this to any mission file:
     o   As always, work on a [renamed] copy
     o   Change the mission name [as it appears in GR] select Edit > Mission ...  and amend the Mission Name field
     o   Confirm that there is a Company tagged as Allied (otherwise add under Misc [left-middle], double-click on Company to add, then check the Allied box
     o   Add the Cinematic_Reset timer [under Tags...]
     o   Add the two blocks
     o   Test, and post if there are any problems.   (Word of warning, this may well get you hooked and start you working on your own mod...)

    Thank you for your work, but, I'm very sorry buddy,  I can't download this file..

    Just tried it, downloads fine for me - is there someone else who can help with this?

    Thank you very much for your reply, what should I do, I don’t know how to do it

    First step is to try the attached mission.  It is the GR first mission with a little extra code that changes how you see the death animation.

    If you are not familiar, copy the file into the same location as m01_caves.mis  (on my pc the path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon\Mods\Origmiss\Mission ), run GR, select Quick Mission, and select   M01 - Iron Dragon OneDay v1

    Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    I think it is correct you can have only four objectives but as you suggest combining two into one objective probably will work.

    I tried five Objectives, and GR stopped working when launching the mission.  Went back to four Objectives and created another Objective [under Tags, the only way I can see to create extra objectives, noting you cannot add descriptive text there], then wrote the script to remove one of the original four [thinking a limitation maybe only having a maximum of  four 'live' objectives], and replace with the extra 'Tag created' Objective.  As soon as the script called that extra Objective, GR stopped working.

    Combining multiple requirements to satisfy one Objective is straightforward to code (can assist if there is a need); which means you could get quite creative (say, like having to achieve those requirements in a given order).

    Apex (I think) manages that drop box. It should be in there under "00-Tutorial Files / Plugins". They should be the same files I use. If it is not working I don't why.

    Downloaded that file plugins.zip  (containing Max2Obj.dle  and  Obj2Max.dli) and it now works (maybe the first file was corrupted in the download, but it wouldn't open), thanks pz3.

    Hope to give this process a go soon(ish); am most interested in vehicles, so any hints/tips in that area would be most welcome!

  6. For what it's worth, the skybox model  xa02_city_sky.pob  works in OGR PC.  I used Mike Schell's Skinner to add some textures, the only difference was that you also have to define the DN (i.e. bottom) texture (which in OGR PC seems to use the UP texture) - not sure the utility of that, the only time I'm aware of where you can see the bottom is in Igor, if you look below the 'floor.'

    When reskinning the skybox, this was typical of the original config:  kimk.redstorm\my documents\_gritx\_texture work\for pete\city multiplayer\skybox\xa02_city_fr.rsb  don't know if there is some clue in that path.

  7. I opened xd05_aurora_dcm_chars.glb using 7zip, indicated the method (of compression) is LZMA:768m.  Opening the file [within 7zip] results in 'Data error in [file].  File is broken.'  AFAIK, this means that 7zip should be able to handle the decompression, but the file itself is corrupted.  7zip doesn't even recognise the file format of xd05_aurora.glb.  They both open in a hex editor, but apart from a few lines, its meaningless to me.

    Noesis previews DL_xd05_shots.rsb, but can't preview DL_xd05_brfg-box.rsb.

    Maybe this makes some sense to one of the (many) smarter heads than me around here, but it suggests there is some basic flaw/corruption between getting the files from an XBox to a PC.

  8. Wombat,

    Am working on a mission on the POW map, and can't figure out how to 'hide' the small grass - have looked at the alpha channels in all the map's images (like  M11_grass_hirez2.rsb), can't find anything relevant; added bright colours to the textures so I could spot exactly where they are applied, still nothing.

    Can't see any grass growing through your snow, how did you do it?



  9. You may be thinking of Operation Stabilise, which had an M1(?) retextured as a Leopard.  Got my curiosity going, and found a link ( http://www.ghostrecon.net/all-news/ghost-recon/stabilise-update/ ) saying that a small update for Operation Stabilise was coming soon, featuring a 'brand new Leopard I tank' (by Streinger) but can't see where that particular update was (if at all) available.

  10. This is mine (for a Nvidia Geforce GT 630M video card), hope that steers you in the right direction (I'm assuming you would need to change the <d3d_device 'adapter' and 'driver' values, the rest should at least get you up and running).

  11. Thanks Dannik for clarifying that as an Admin, so won't discuss this further.  For interest, before posting I did look, but couldn't find SOAF for sale, hence the question (Steam [at least not in my region - Aus.], gog.com, amazon.com.au, or EB Games and JB Hi-Fi [local games shops]).  After reading your msg, I had a wider look, and did find copies on amazon.com.  Even though they won't ship to me, my consideration of SOAF as 'abandonware' was still wrong.

    I'll go back to my original plan using an 'origmiss' map for the mission I'm scripting ...

    I think '[Thing that should not be spoken of here IAW Forum Rule 3.7] is auto generated. I have had it happen to me as well.
    Not a big deal generally.

    And Rule 3.7:
    [3.7] Warez : Links to warez sites or discussion of warez is not permitted. Breach of this rule can lead to legal proceedings against this site, and will not be tolerated. Software cracks that remove the "CD/DVD check" are against the Ubi Soft licensing agreement and are included in this rule - which is strictly enforced. Posts containing CD-keys and links to sites of CD-keys will be deleted.

    Thanks Wombat.

    Is 'Sum Of All Fears' considered abandonware?  I know 'some' do, but unless Ubi Soft considers it so, then I presume further discussion would be in breach of [3.7].

    My concern is based around the SOAF maps, though I must admit that the first time I played, there was a certain sense of 'deja-vu' ...

    I have a '[Thing that should not be spoken of here IAW Forum Rule 3.7].exe'

    Many apologies (especially to whoever had to edit my post).  I've [since...] looked for the forum rules, found the FAQ which mentions 'this' (but no link), looked on the Main and Forum pages, and Googled: site:ghostrecon.net forum rules    which shows a list of breaches but not the actual list.

    I'm probably missing the obvious (quite likely), so can someone include a url to the rules please?  I found something that may be of relevance and want to make sure it is appropriate first.

  14. Many thanks Gloops, works a treat.

    I renamed the .exe and while it still takes some time to load (COD 4, for example, is much faster) it now launches first go.  I also found it doesn't need the CD in the drive (having the R6 Vegas disk in the drive wasn't making any difference...).  I have other older games so may look at nuking the Games Explorer as well.

    I have a '[Thing that should not be spoken of here IAW Forum Rule 3.7].exe' backed up, which must've been for Win 98/XP installs (can't think of/remember any other reason for having it); didn't want my legitimate software thrashing my drive.

  15. I have Ghost Recon ('Complete' with GR, DS, & IT, if that makes any difference) installed from CD on Win7-64 bit (not updated, which may make a difference?).

    For reasons I don't understand, after my laptop (HP Pavilion with Nvidia graphics card) is rebooted, the first time you launch GR, nothing happens.  Go into Task Manager, into the Processes tab, select GhostRecon.exe *32 and click on the End Process button.  Then launch Ghost Recon again and it works but takes some time to load (which decreasing load times on subsequent sessions, until the next reboot).

    I used to leave the GR CD in the drive, but it used to thrash it (so bypassed that), but after my last vanilla install I launched GR forgetting I still had the Rainbow 6 Vegas disk in the drive, and it still worked (as described above).

    Maybe worth a try, see if it works for you.
