A custom campaign for ArmA2 Combined Operations. Official DLCs - BAF and PMC, are recommended for best experience, but not required.

-Basic infantry action with constant heavy independent friendly AI support (+CAS/Mortar Support)
-Many custom gameplay functions (Minefield creating system, Medic packs, Order AI teams between defense lines...)
-Player´s gear is transfered between missions (Use the weapon you find, through the campaign if you like)
-No High Command System (as default, but now as optional feature through custom Command Mode option)
-Massive use of custom-made Ambient Life (Animals, Civilians, Traffic, Crows, Flies)
-Much custom AI scripts (walking in random buildings, trench behaviour, covering, surrendering, creating minefields, tanks shooting buildings, using smokegrenades...)
-Long complex missions made with performance saving methods (Should works good with CPU like Q6600)
-Life multiplier available for high-end computer owners
-Custom voices/sounds (around 500+)
-ACE2 compatible

bedges wrote:After 3 months of testing and deliberation, our panel of judges have concluded their findings and tallied their scores to determine who this year's top three winners are in our Mission Editing Contest.

According to our panel, the road was tough at every turn. Most entries brought their own styles while others followed the safe patterns of mission designs from the past. Reports show that many of the entries showed potential as front runners but were unfortunately short-changed through portions of the mission design that induced bugs or faults into the overall development of the scenario. In the end, only three could secure a prize.

All entries will receive a review and subsequently be added to our archives as MEC contestants for all others to enjoy. The top three are listed below...

  1. Takibans Last Stand by SaOk
  2. Zero by Clayman
  3. Cut The Power by Janat

I'd like to take a moment to recognize the other participants. Simply because your mission missed the top three during the contest, does not in any way exclude you from the winners circle. It only means that the winners were more polished by the deadline.

Thank you all for your participation and awesome efforts! See you next time!

Both SP and MP. With those separate COOP (for up to 9 players) missions you can play it as the campaign. You just need to start them in MP section as separate missions.

There seem to be compability bug in the ACR DLC (hopefully soon fixed). If you have lite version of the DLC and problems to play the new Zub mission, try to copy and rename the acr_weapons.pbo (in addons folder) to both ca_weapons_acr.pbo (this could be unneeded) and caweapons_acr.pbo. Remember to keep the old acr_weapons.pbo too.

New version 2.5 is here (soon visible). Remember to patch the game to 1.62 and install free ACR DLC lite (can be found in ArmA2 homepage) if you havent bought the ACR DLC. I suggest to play with JSRS sound mod that have a big effect especially in the new Zub mission to make distant firefights sound real. You can find that mod in Biforum.

Whole campaign is now playable as COOP. Only intro´s and outro´s are missing and the ingame cutscenes are less good looking. Else works almost the same as SP campaign.

New campaign version will come after they release 1.61 version for the game. I am adding some new Line Of Sight functions for the new mission which will require that game version. Before that I am going to convert rest of the campaign missions as coop. I found a new client script method (thx to Zonekiller) that makes it easy.
