Hello Everyone , 

Here are some questions I get when I tell People I play OGR .

1)There are lot of other Tactical shooter games but why OGR you crazy??

A)What I actually love about this game is just switching soldiers and Extra Team Trick I got Which adds hardcore realism. Incase If you play the right way I bet you really forget about other games .

2) The game is dead why should I play?

A)No . There are lot of people who still play this game . Most of people I talked dont even know that there are mods and other stuff . Forget about mods they dont even know there is multiplayer . For Instance I played this game when I was 7 years old . I simply completed campaign and I didnt even know there was expansions , multiplayer , mods. In Lockdown I installed the game(As I remember  How I used to feel when a specialist was wounded) and wanted to play Multiplayer . Searched online and got into GR Hideout Server . From there the actual game started for me .

3) How to play Multiplayer?

A)There are guides here 

Multiplayer FAQ's by Pave Low

Check Server list you can find some people therehttp://5.45.107.182/

You can join this discord server https://discord.gg/kd2aRzp

If you know spanish you can join here AOG Clan https://www.facebook.com/groups/1200214233330018/ Chi clan https://www.facebook.com/groups/clanchi they play daily around 8:00am to 10:00am (GMT+5.5). Chi clan is most active clan .

 

You can also PM me if you wanna play .I can host the server with tougher enemy AI and Good backup .

4)What are the mods I should try?

A)All mods here are really very good . I will recommend mods which are in my mind right now .

   SP Campaigns I recommend all jack57 mods(Saving private ryan, brother in arms Band of Brothers,Postcards from peru)  , ww3 mod play them in elite .

   Expansions - FrostBite,P2,Yotm,WOI,Centcom

   Total Conversion - All Hantrox mods(Missionhx,HX5,HX3,HX4,hx upgradedmany more)

  For Realism use - Not a game mod

Some other mods - Blood_Oil ,df4,m4sopmod mod,Rockall ,Navy Seals,Alpha squad mod ,Dtd mod, General Enemy Realism .

  All in One and best mod - Heroes Unleashed

combination of mods for multiplayer If you dont have HU -DS,IT,Alpha Squad, Dtd Team, Standard Weapon ,Skype Ghost, Frost Bite ,HX5 RedSun , MissionHXupgraded ,Not a game(NAG)

For now as Download Section is down I recommend these you can find them easily - DS,IT, Skype Ghost,HX5,NAG

Mod links :

Skype Ghost-https://static.secure.website/wscfus/9245421/4778889/skypeghost.rar

 If you got HU use these - DS,IT,HX5 Redsun ,MissionHx upgraded ,Heroes Unleashed.

5)OGR too easy for me?"

A) IF you feel OGR too easy . I will recommend you some complex ways.Go to the Mod>actor you can see some atr files .Copy them and keeping them some where safe not in same folder . If you feel missions are easy . you can change the atr files of enemies of particular mission. changing some values . for multiplayer you can change opposing forces values .
    <Weapon>8</Weapon>
    <Stamina>8</Stamina>
    <Stealth>8</Stealth>
    <Leadership>8</Leadership>

You can also change opposition kits . Equip them with some of cool snipers and gl. You will definitely feel the game tougher than ever .

6) Which Clans are still playing OGR Regularly and which server should I look??

A) Chi , U3c ,Shot , Lob, [S] These are the active clans which play regularly . All are south american clans they speak spanish only  .They always play PvP . At times They will be clan wars against each others . They allow you to play with them . Beware :They are legends  and play really very fast competing with them is very hard especially Chi clan. You can increase your skills by playing with them and they always encourage you even if you dont perform well too. There is also new clan name WZA they speak english . They love playing coop mostly firefight . They too play daily and encourage new players to join .The most Active servers are ED Server ,=AOG= Server , CLAN [*=]CHI[ SERVER Check them here http://5.45.107.182/ . In GameRanger You can hardly find rooms which play You can check that too .If you love to play GR without any expansions and mods you can join Eisenhauer's Funroom It got some cool must try sniper missions .If you wish to play Heroes Unleashed online There is one and only Ghost Recon HU die7 Server Which Offers nice experience with Smart AI Backup .

7) What is the right way to play OGR?

(This answer will be long but this trick will bring new dimension to OGR and adjustable very quick by removing read only)

Credits - @MarkAm_i

A)According to me the Right way to play GR is always with AI Backup . I am going to explain my coop way in MP(Go to Multiplayer>Create Server)You dont need seperate server for this .  I play with AI Backup+Respawn both activated(You read it right both at once)I will change every soldier kit with some of best guns and I will add extra Teams like Alpha, Bravo,Charlie called Delta, Echo . I call them ghost teams . Of course new teams will not be viewed on map and I cant command them but can switch to them. At times I switch to them and command my Rest A,B,C teams in tough situations . I always keep switching between teams and confusing enemy AI . Blocking Certain Locations  and trapping Enemies . It will be more like Intensive management. 

How do I do this all?

Simple just I change things in coop_avatar.toe file (C>Program Files(x86)>Red Storm Entertainment >Ghost Recon >Data>Temp>Coop avatar). Generally It will be something like this .

<TOEFile>
    <VersionNumber>2.000000</VersionNumber>
    <Company IgorId = "14" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_---" MultiplayerCompany = "2">
        <Platoon IgorId = "13" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Platoon1" MultiplayerPlatoon = "1">
            <Team IgorId = "10" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Alpha">
                <Actor IgorId = "1" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-006.kit" Owner = "0"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "2" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-010.kit"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "3" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_gren.atr" Kit = "hx-001.kit"/>
            </Team>
            <Team IgorId = "11" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Bravo">
                <Actor IgorId = "4" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-010.kit"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "5" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_gren.atr" Kit = "hx-001.kit"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "6" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_at.atr" Kit = "hx-300.kit"/>
            </Team>
            <Team IgorId = "12" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Charlie">
                <Actor IgorId = "7" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-010.kit"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "8" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_gren.atr" Kit = "hx-001.kit"/>
                <Actor IgorId = "9" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_at.atr" Kit = "hx-300.kit"/>
            </Team>
        </Platoon>
    </Company>
</TOEFile>

Owner = "0"/> at sixth line is the one who got command the whole squad now it is 1st soldier at Alpha. You can change it to your desired soldier in a team and you will play as him at the start .

Here You can see .atr , .kit .You need to edit them to bring new actors and kits to the squad.

For Example you need to change the second soldier kit in Alpha .You need to look in "_Alpha">

<Actor IgorId = "2" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-010.kit"/>

In that you need to replace hx-010  to your desired kit suppose this one hx-300 . Then the script will be 

<Actor IgorId = "2" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_asl-hx5.atr" Kit = "hx-300.kit"/>

You can change .atr and keep specailists too if you like .

Same for atr change and other squads kits change. Hope you get it .

After Changing the way you want. To work you need to go to properties of coop_avatar.toe file and keep it read only .

+Now Edit the server Activate respawns  . Now play the game you can see AI Backup will be there .Once you die you can respawn.  Both AI Backup+Respawn there in game .

Note -To get back to normal gameplay . you go to properties and remove read only. You will be fine

Then you are fine to play GR with your desired kits and actors in the squad.

+Now How to add extra Teams like Alpha,Bravo,Charlie .

ghost teams - Delta,Echo teams .

Extra teams(ghost teams) dont follow you or listen to your commands . But you can switch to them and play .Although in YOTM mod in some maps ghost teams follow A,B,C .

You can check the file I paste here.coop_avatar.toe

                        </Team>
                        <Team IgorId = "8" ScriptId = "0" Name = "_Echo">
                                <Actor IgorId = "14" ScriptId = "14" Name = "_Actor" File = "mp_plt1_hvywep.atr" Kit = "heavy-weapons-01.kit"/>

            </Team>
        </Platoon>
    </Company>
</TOEFile>

Here in this You can see there are 2 extra teams Delta,Echo .

In Delta team you see first soldier . He got this Owner = "0" PlatoonLeader = "1"/> Which means he got command over A,B,C teams not D,E .

While you are on Alpha,Bravo,Charlie Teams you cant see ghost teams on the map . While playing as ghost teams you can see yourself as small green direction and A,B,C teams on map . You can see ghost teams physically .

After Changing the way you want. To work you need to go to properties of coop_avatar.toe file and keep it read only .

Now Edit the server Activate respawns  . Now play the game you can see AI Backup will be there .Once you die you can respawn.  Both AI Backup+Respawn there in game .

After changing file To get back to normal gameplay . you go to properties and remove read only. You will be fine .

If you dont want to do this all . Simply copy the information in the file coop_avatar.toe and paste in your coop_avatar file and keep it read only in properties.

Let me know If you got any doubts .I will keep editing this topic if there is any mistake or something missing.

This trick is the only reason why I play GR and will play GR .Markam_i explained this trick to me I got addicted to this game.I explained this trick to my friend .he got addicted to this game.

If you just want 3 teams to have similar preferred kits you can use this . For Example In HX5 You can use this for 'Clan weapons ' Settings.http://web.archive.org/web/20031213070456/http://www3.telus.net/miklogik/ghostrecon/tutorial.htm

Hope you like it.

Feel free to post your knowledge in the form of Q/A .

opposing_force kits found in the equip folder are used by the enemy in most if not all .gtf gametypes.

For missions you can specify the kit in Igor. If not specified they will have a default.kit which is an AK47 and frags.
