Invasion 44' (WW2 Mod) (Caution! Not a DAYZ DISCUSSION)
This is an excellent WW2 Mod which feels like a completely different game, I urge you all to try this mod. Its the same tactics and realism arma 2 has to offer plus so much more. If you're a lover of ACE you'd really enjoy this mod.

Invasion 44' is available on Six Launcher or more info at http://www.invasion-1944.com/
(Caution to DayZ fanboys theres no zombies in this though some people still try to add them....)

so invasion 44 is a world war 2 mod but what is ace?

ACE stands for Advanced Combat Environment and basically adds more realistic features to the vanilla game. Some of the features of I44 were obviously inspired by ACE.

Yea ACE is a really great mod I still personally enjoy the combat from WW2

I've been playing Invasion 1944 for a while now. Especially when it was out on Cold War Crisis/Resistance a while back. Its never lost its touch. (I am a history nut afterall) But I agree with you, this mod is brilliant. Well made and its probably one of the best mods out there. I've currently made another I44 mission for people, I've done near enough how the I44 team does it. You guys should check out my Screenshots if you want to look. It should be called [I44] Battle of Neavile. Or something along those lines. Also, if anyone is interested in joining COOPs with me, I'll happily let you in with it. I'm looking for some nice players to go with on here. Not many COOP Servers out :(

Looks good - have you posted the mission anywhere? If not, it might be a good idea to put it on the official forums in the user missions section for people to download.

I would post it but I'm having a small problem right now in terms of setting the AA Guns as objectives. Its a pain, I'm doing a small test tonight though without the objectives. You can join in if you want.

Trying to get them to be set as `Tasks` is a problem for me. Since I have no damn clue on how to do it XD I've even checked the forums. I get more confused. I'm looking for anybody to help me figure it out though.

The last MP mission I did I used Taskmaster 2. The others I used the F2 MP development framework. I haven't made many that I would publish though - I am more of an addon guy!!
[ZC] Archer [JTF207] Sep 8, 2012 @ 9:53am 
Then create me a bug from the Movie Starship troopers! Then you'll have a fan :3

I'll try those tools also. Thank you.

Ah, I wish modelling was my thing - I meant addon scripts.

Is this still available without the deepSIX 3rd party launcher? I don't want yet another bloody 3rd party launcher, I'm getting seriously sick of 3rd party launchers. I have found a few archives with 7z files but so far (at 2 gigs a shot) I haven't found one without a corrupt file or 2. Personally I think they should make a Arma WWII standalone.. :)

Thanks!

You indeed can. Goto:-

http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=12465

Go down to the bottom of the page and get it all from there. Pick on of the FTP spots. You don't need to have a user or anything. Just download it from there! Remember though, don't forget to download Community Based Addons also. Which is in the requirements. (It also has a link for you) Have fun!

Edit: Also. For your information. It wasnt Bohemia interactive. But another company made a Russian WW2 Standalone game. I'd rather not explain it. (Aka, it was horrible)

It was Iron Front : Liberation 1944, and was rather good actually. Unfortunately there have been some behind the scene's issues that have stalled further development of it. I am hoping they sort out whatever legal spat they are having and further develop it. It covered an era and theatre of WWII that is yet to be concentrated on.

Actually, I take my quote of `Horrible` back. I guess I'm being too harsh on it. It seemed alright, but the way it was presented to be a Retail game was a little rough don't you think? The fact they still left some features inside such as `Civillian` or `Independant` When they're just left as blank pieces. And that fact that they don't let anyone mod the game really seems harsh to be honest. They should of cleaned it up more, the units and models and such were brilliant. But the way that it was left like an unifinished mess for the rest of everything really feels odd for a game like that.

It was rough round the edges, yes, but it was always the developers intention to patch it up. I was involved in some of the latter stage beta testing and that was always the impression I got. Much like Arma, you know that when it comes out there will be issues, but you also know they will work hard to fix them.

With regard to the modding side of thing. I actually think that the devs thought this would happen, It was only after release that the two publishers involved (BIS and Deep Silver) clarified that the deal they had done did not involve the use of BI's toolset - this effectively killed modding as you can't mod the game without BI's tools. I think that this was actually bit of a ♥♥♥♥-up during the contract negotiation phase and assumptions were made. Also part of me suspects that Deep Silver didn't push this as they are more of a traditional publisher and were maybe a bit apprehensive about community modding maybe killing any potential DLC they had planned. None of this is fact - it's just the impression I got.

I suspect that this all leads into the current 'problems' they are having. The devs have actually prepared patch 1.4 for the game, but Deep Silver are preventing them from publishing it due to an unspecified argument with BIS.

I know the devs had planned extra content and I think some of it is built. I am hoping that Deep Silver and BIS come to some agreement which will;

a) Allow the patch to be deployed.
b) Allow DLC to be published.
c) Allow BI Tools to be used to allow community modding.

It got a bit of a rough ride on release (perhaps deservedly so), but then again so did Arma, Arma 2 and Operarion Arowhead!! If the publishing deal hadn't gone sour then we would be playing a better game now.

Lastly I have to say, although I helped with some beta testing in the weeks before release, I am no way affiliated to AWAR, Deep Silver or BIS - I just gave them some of my time!
