A total conversion mod for Arma: Cold War Assault, set in grim alternate 1980s, when Cold War went HOT!

See how NATO excercise "Autumn Forge" incidentally causes an all-out war with Warsaw Pact. Take part in virtual battles which are not only inspired by historical warfare, but also historical gaming!

Relive Cold War in a retro style, taken straight from an era of 8 bit microcomputers and VGA resolution!

Operation Autumn Forge is the first mod in Arma history to use a cutting-edge "RIP - Real Innovative Play" technology by Alex_Mercer.

cool concept,
Prons:
nice low polygon,
easy to identify between friends and enemies,

Cons:
lowers fps
the tv thing should be abel to turn off
can't get in to sight mode ( the V key)

personaly, I enjoy the ablity to identify soldiers, without straining my eyes :D
keep it up!!!

the mission "Clean sweap": (fps 60-70)

the mission "Spetznaz": (fps 30-35)

Truth be told, the whole mod is an elaborate April Fool's joke (note the release date). We're making fun of the whole "genre" of "retro-games" which not only have vintage pixel art, but additionally an artificially reduced image quality (for example Sega Genesis remakes on Steam). The TV overlay and reduced FPS is part of the joke.

Now, there are few people who like the general idea of "minecrafty" OFP, and I have plans for future updates. So, thanks for your review and interest! :)

Hey Alex. I see you've contributed your own system to this mod. I understand it's both innovative and cutting edge. All at the same time. Fascinating.

As for the assets. A triumph of function over form, no doubt. Incredibly efficient design and execution.

I personally think it's one of the best mods I've never tried. Ever.
