Russian Player: Expanded Edition - general topic


Recommended Posts

Tend to disagree with these comments at present. Most people I play with can download 1GB files in less than 15 minutes. These days I see no reason to worry about the size of a mod for such an old game. Sure there may be a few people out there with slow connections, but don`t let it hold you back. If they like the look of your mod, they will download it.

Also 7-Zip will compress the mod to a much smaller size than winrar. Rockall is 1.3GB and compressed to only 333Mb. So your 840Mb mod would probally compress to under 200Mb using the ultra settings.

Like Tinker, I highly recommend 7Zip. However, suggest to any one downloading the mod to use 7Zip to extract.

Some programs other then 7Z will extract it without errors but not all. I had a team mate that decompressed a 7Z mod with a different program and he had several errors trying to play it.

Noted what Tinker says. However here we are speaking that the wav files used weight 815MB!!! It is my opinion that you should try to reduce those files reducing, for example, the audio resolution. An open source program like Audacity might definitely help you.

@ Tinker:

Thank you for the advice - I will try to use 7 Zip.

@ wombat50:

Thanks for the advices for 7 Zip. About the sound - I have added some new sound files from the Russian version of Ghost Recon 1 with DLC's (those sounds are: briefings, training talking, male and female squad talking). For the enemies sounds, for I just used the male squad talking from the English version of Ghost Recon 1 and some "null" sounds (you know, the sound of, well, nothing :) ). And that's it. I don't know why it is 785 MB (now).

@ Giampi:

Maybe I will do it - thanks for this advice.

@ rileyfletcher_01:

But is it really illegal? So illegal that you have to compare it to killing someone?

Well, all right, I can post the mod without all of those sounds. But it just won't be the same...

@ wombat50:

Sorry for asking, but who is Rocky? :)

@ rileyfletcher_01:

Well, it is true with the German version (I have got one bought some time ago in Germany and it is fully copyrighted), but I don't remember how it is with Russian version. I think I'll try - but I'll be careful.

@ rileyfletcher_01:

Of course, it is obvious that I am still working on that. ;) Currently I am something like in the middle of the 9th mission. Also, about the Russian sound, Rocky said that, quote:

"This would be okay, go ahead."

So the sound will be in the mod. Wombat50 is also helping me with the pictures and stuff like that.

Sorry for my lack of any information over here, but from friday to sunday I was on a convent in my hometown, so I was very busy. Also, unfortunately, today (on monday) I am going for a trip for two days, so I won't be able to work on the mod then.

I hope that I will have got some more time after that. :)

Regards. :thumbsup:

Anyone knows how can I change the vehicles icons on the in - game command map? Because I don't want to have got, for example, a jeep with a truck icon on it. ;)

@ rileyfletcher_01:

Thanks, I got it. However, I will not edit it - I just found out that everything was fine. Maybe I am just blind... ;)

Anyway, I have got another question - how can I delete the "Ghost Recon" campaign from the campaign menu? Because now I have got my own "Russian Player Mod" campaign in it with all of the specialist's getting earned in other order etc. I know that when I will remove the "campaign" file from the "Origmiss/Mission" folder everything will be fine - but is there some other way? Because if there isn't, everyone who would like to play the mod will have to do this.

If you changed the missions and saved them with the original name in your mod mission folder, then you don't need to delete the campaign.xml file. I would not suggest doing this, and definitely don't require others to do so. Never delete or overwrite original files, bad problems, especially when playing online. unsure.gif

@ rileyfletcher_01:

OK, so I won't delete it. But how can I then change the order of specialist's getting earned? And is there some other way to remove the "Ghost Recon" campaign, so I will have got only my "Russian Player Mod" one?

@ rileyfletcher_01:

OK, I'll leave it as it is.

But now I have got some more serious problems - IGOR is crashing and some quick missions don't work now. I don't know why - it started so suddenly. I didn't overwrite or delete any files or anything. I reinstalled the game few times, removed all the files after deinstallation (except my mod) - but I still have got those problems. I don't know what to do with it. Can you help me?

-Does Ghost Recon or Igor function without your mod in the mod folder?

Always check the ike.log immediately after a crash for clues.

I have made syntax errors in some files and the ike.log will say which file is causing the problem.

- Try deleting all saves and replays from the original game and your mod.

Look in Origimiss /Save folder for original game saves and replays.

You may wish to make a backup of these files if they are not the problem you can then put them back.
