Ghost Recon - January 26 2008

Greetings [SAS]Officer, SNCO's, NCO's, Troopers and [SAS] Friends,

I have marked on the calandar a Ghost Recon Night for Jan 26, 2008.

I will be starting the server around 1800 GMT.

As not all of us have both of the expansion packs... I will be running Ghost Recon original patched to version 1.4

If you want to attend you will need to find and download each of the following....

SAS Equipment Mod - 24.2 mb file

http://files.3dretreat.com/display.asp?catid=89&order=dcount

Tage Des Zorn (Days of Anger) Campaign - 209 mb file

http://www.ghostrecon.net/files2/index.php?act=view&id=758

Days of Anger is a 12 mission campaign pack, we will attempt the missions in order... sort of like doing a Ghost Recon Live Op...

Hope to see you there... as GR limits us to 9 players in COOP mode... we will have 8 vacancies... preference will be given to [SAS] Members, RCT's and Cadets over our [SAS] Friends and General public.

You can buy nearly any kind of game on this site http://www.amazon.com and the prices are usually quite affordable. Just do a search for Ghost Recon.

En4cers post reads 2008-01-28 and the topic reads 2008-01-26 true...

The Calednar says 2008-01-26 so I would guess that is the proper date.

I just wish Walmart still had Ghost Recon gold edition :@ !!!

I've been unable to get the Days of Anger mod to run correctly, once I enable it and try to launch one of the missions Ghost Recon crashes to desktop. I just dropped the Tage des Zorns folder into the GR mods folder. Can someone please tell me if I'm installing it right or why it isn't working. Thanks. Wink

Hey Chester,

The Days of Anger folder should appear as a sub folder within the MODS folder... within the Ghost Recon folder.

That should be the correct location.... also... don't forget to activate the mod... in the options menu...

Let me know how that goes for you...

The Original Version of GR can be Downloaded for 9.95 from Direct2drive.com
(they did not have the Gold Edition unfortuantly, but I believe if your running Mods, all you would need id the Original Version to Mod to)

Spawn,

Your correct... since many people are having trouble getting the Expansion packs... I stuck with the original program only... just need to be specific when looking for playable maps... many require either the Desert Seige or Island Thunder packs to operate.

The local computer store by me has the Ghost Recon Platnium case...

Steel cary case.. with GR logo.
T-Shirt with GR logo
Baseball Cap with GR Logo
Ghost Recon with Both Expansions on DVD...

and some other odds and ends.... sells for around $25 I think.... so the game is still alive and kicking.... just got to find the hidding spots.

It is a shame that I have to work. I was looking forward to a good GR game.
Maybe next time.

Once I extracted the Tage_des_Zorns folder from the .rar. I placed the folder Tage des Zorns which is the subfolder of Tage_des_Zorns in the "E:\Program Files\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon\Mods Folder. Then I go to options and enable the mod, and attempt to load from the campain the first mission and in an MP game various missions, all resulting in crashes. Any ideas why it keeps crashing?

EDIT: With Nimloth's help the issue has been resolved. Smile

Chester.. and everyone else...

The person who made the map, and created the RAR file forgot to include the fact that the MOD requires DS and IT to run.

So those of you who downloaded it... keep it... I tested it and it looks cool...

I will download some server side missions... for us to test...

I will update here when done..

Get a load of this.... A campaign of Server Side Missions... which means only I have to download them... the rest of you just join and play...

Here is the write up...

Squad Based Tactical Operations - Ghost Recon (SBTO-GR v2)

The Goal of Squad Based Tactical Operations (SBTO) Training is to create Squad Cohesion, Skills and Trust. Although the Completion of Objectives is primary, consider it a Failed Mission if you lose even one Squad Member.

In fact, some Missions may not permit you to proceed if your Team Members are DEAD! If you find yourself alone and dead, there is a good chance that YOU were being a 'HOTDOG' and not doing your part in Protecting the Squad.

"Alone, you can only watch one direction and have only one weapon"
"The Squad has many eyes and many weapons."

To this end, Squad Members should focus on the following:

1) Keep with the Squad, provide Forward, Flank or Rear coverage as required or instructed..You are no good to the Squad in a 'Fire Fight' if you are off on the other side of the map with the support weapon that could have made a difference in the outcome. Maintain a reasonable interval distance between Squad Members incase of Grenade Assaults.

2) Avoid "Friendly Fire" by being 'Situationally Aware' of your Squad Members locations, and the position of Enemy Forces. Communicate your position and what you see often. "Jones, Left Flank, Clear" provides tons of information to your Squad!
USE YOUR COMMS & USE YOUR MAP!

3) Communicate your intention to 'Go HOT' on a Target and allow time for the Squad to take and provide cover. Losing the whole Squad because you want to improve your Kill Ratio makes you an unpopular Squad Member!

4) Protect Squad Members that have Special Equipment that is required to Complete the Objectives. Your job is to protect them and get them safely to the Objective so they can do their job.

5) If you get WACKED, SAY SO! Then save the whining till after the mission is complete! Nobody cares to hear your excuses for why they now have to cover YOUR spot! Besides, you are blocking the COMMS Channel with useless chatter!

6) Sometimes the Best Course of Action is to avoid initial contact until your Squad has a 'Fire Power' or Terrain Advantage! Think about it!

7) If you don't use Roger Wilco, Team Speak or some other form of live voice communications, consider getting hold of the software. Usually free and easy to setup. http://www.goteamspeak.com http://www.rogerwilco.com

Have fun and enjoy SBTO-GR!

A SHORT HISTORY

"Squad Based Tactical Operations" SBTO-GR v2.0

SBTO is designed with tactics, stealth and team work in mind. The kill-score is secondary to realistic squad movement and action. In fact, some SBTO missions can be completed without any engagement of the OPFOR. The advanced scripting style of SBTO makes it almost impossible for the "Run & Gun, Lone Wolf" type player to survive more than a few minutes into a mission. Only Team Work, Tactics & Stealth will get the advance Ghost Recon Player through the mission objectives. Further, SBTO v2.0 was designed with Roger Wilco and TeamSpeak2 in mind. Communications between squad members is essential.

FEATURES OF SBTO v2.0

1) SBTO is server side only, meaning that ONLY the Host has to have SBTO installed. Your friends can play SBTO without having to go and download it first.

2) There are no 'spawned in' OPFOR characters ! Everything you are going to encounter is already on the map at the beginning.

3) SBTO is fantastic with the original Ghost Recon Weapons but is also compatible with most all popular weapons mods now available to the GR Community.

4) Advanced scripting technics means that SBTO is very random in response to the players actions, or inaction. Bottom line, SBTO never plays the same way twice. Every time you play SBTO, you will have to adapt your plan of action to meet the changing dynamics. Result is, exciting increased playability and longevity of players interest.

5) SBTO is best enjoyed with a Team of friends playing via LAN or On Line, but, SBTO is a real challenge off line for the single player too.

Now doesnt that sound like an [SAS] / GR environment !!

Good Find there Captain!!

Wiz,

It is not that the installer works incorrectly... in fact it works fine...

The problem is that the docs fail to mention that you must have the DS and IT expansion packs active for it to work... The file description was written to reflect that you only needed the main game...

When I checked the file out... it installed correctly... and it showed all the maps in the server menu... when I tested it.. I had negelected to turn off the DS and IT EP's and it worked fine... when I deactivated the EP's GR crashed everytime...

There is nothing wrong with the download, it just requires DS and IT to run... unfortunately... most of the GR stuff requires those files to run...

So a big hint to our GR players... crack open the wallets... and get the parts you need. Beg, borrow or steal.. but go get it.

Pretty amazing that they still sell this 6-7 year old game in a store like freerecordshop. That particular freerecordshop at Karl Johan is pretty large though.
