ltdanthomas  [author] Mar 11 @ 9:29am 
THIS IS AN OLD MISSION I HAVE LISTED THE MODS BUT YOU HAVE TO CHCK FOR UPDATED VERSIONS OF THOSE MODS. THE MISSION RUNS REALLY SLOW BECAUSE OF THE DBOAFGHANISTAN MAP. SO I HAVE WASHED MY HANDS OF IT.
SORRY GUYS. WORKING ON OTHER STUFF RIGHT NOW.

Same thing with the other Afghan map from TFAngels, I'm missing a "Wamako Objects" pbo file from the swedish forces mod. Also, does anyone know where I can get ACRE for Arma 3?

Bah for some reason i just can't play this map , I got the mods that are listed and put them correctly but yet it gives me an error at start up which is as followed" You cannot play/edit this mission it is dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted.sfp_rbs97, sfp_sa2, sfp_russian .

So yeah if tehre is any help would be awesome guys!

What are the names of your two servers?
StickAssassin Dec 1, 2013 @ 3:50pm 
hey running this with my friend and there is no tasks poping up
Enema Dec 1, 2013 @ 3:40pm 
Stick, not trying to be rude but google Restrepo to get a better understanding of it. It's not a 'what', but a 'who, what, where, and when' type of place.
StickAssassin Dec 1, 2013 @ 10:32am 
What is restrepo

they pulled it for updates i heard.
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 29, 2013 @ 6:33pm 
should be the f18 mod
sabZero_srb Oct 29, 2013 @ 4:04pm 
The last link ( http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=22594 ) isn't working - it says "You're not allowed to do this" when i paste it into my browser. Could you guys tell me what's the mod's name so i can download it seperatly? Or maybe an another link? Thanks a lot!!
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 26, 2013 @ 9:32am 
the map was made by Deanosbeano and we have found that putting any objects on this map can cause lag, by this i mean building towns things that wernt with his original. Short of pulling everything off the map we have done what we can to fix it. We have kinda wiped our hands of this one and started a new large multi player missions on KOPLIC. Bucketnate if your looking for further help or any questions log into our teamspeak we would love to talk about what your looking for in game so we can try to make what you guys want. while afghan map is great for it terrian features but there is just something about it that will not allow for propper FPS.
We have had luck running it on our server that is a dedicated but i still seem to get anywhere between 20-30 fps.. other suggestion is make sure your not running the TPW mod. that seems to lag frame rates.

here is out Teamspeak for anyone interested

Do you guys have ANY plans to optimize this mission and update the textures? The Arma 3 FPS counter says 60 when its much much lower so there is something going on there
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 16, 2013 @ 8:03pm 
We have put out a small campaign for you to download from steamworkshop here is the link to our collection and you can browse and find our missions here. thank you

@Rondor the .pbo files should be placed something like this "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\@MYMOD\Addons\Mod.pbo" all the .pbo files are placed under the "@[Mod name here]\Addons" Folder. Doesn't matter what you call the @ folder, but the sub folder Addons, must be named addons, feel free to add me if you need any aditional help, otherwise I uploaded a video on how to do it like Lt said
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 6, 2013 @ 12:40pm 
@rondor watch the video above and it will show you what you have to do. every mod needs to start with an d"@WHATEVER" folder. then inthat @ folder you need a folder called "Addons". open that addons folder and put the pbos that you downloaded in there. then take the @ folder and put it in your arma3 install directory. If you need help friend me on steam if you have teamspeak 3.
Rondor Oct 6, 2013 @ 8:37am 
I suck at mods. I have extracted the 4 .pbo files but exactly where do I drop them in steamapps/arma? Thaqnks so much for the newb Question that is likely answered many times.
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 1, 2013 @ 2:42pm 
For anyone who is worried about how long or how many mods there are for our map, let me ease your troubled mind a bit. We here at TFA understand that by using mods we stear a good portion of people that would look at our stuff, in the other direction. I see it like this. These 5 or so mods will take you about a grand total of 1 hour maybe a bit more or less depending on your internet upload and download speeds are......That being said, thay add a level of detail that, unfortunatly BIS did not bring to the game. Altis is ok, and i will be releasing my next map series on altis but I was hoping for a way more posished version of what we got.
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 1, 2013 @ 2:41pm 
All of the mods used I continue to use on most if not all of the maps we make. The mods are great and add to the emersion of the gameplay. We hope you take a min and give them a try they are all very well done and deserve to be used. Once again thank you to all the guys who made the mods we use. I have listed your names before and im lazy now :) so my bad.
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 1, 2013 @ 1:55pm 
NEW CO-OP map that will be short missions that continue to progress the story line coming this weekend. "Operation burning Liberty" Night1 will be out sat or sunday night depending on my guys and if they are able to be on.
ltdanthomas  [author] Oct 1, 2013 @ 1:53pm 
WE NOW HAVE 2 servers that are dedicated and running missions 24/7 just search TFA in your host portion of the search feild.

ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 21, 2013 @ 6:02pm 
Alright we got up two new missions. same mods. COMBAT afgahnistan is a insrugentcy occupation map overlayed ontop of the dbo afgahnistan map. The other mission we put out is the VIP ESCORT on sfp's Wamaco map. It is an African Map and you are a team of security contractors there to escort the VIP around and get him to the EXTRACT on time before the OPFOR have a chance to put his dick in the dirt! Both are running great and can be run on personal computers as well as Dedicated servers. If you have played this map on this page here then you are fine and dont need to download any mods to play either map....but if you have not played AFGHAN OPERATIONS before and have not downloaded the maps use the video above to get sorted on it all. thank you looking forward to seeing what you guys think. ~LT~
Buffalo Soldier Sep 21, 2013 @ 2:16pm 
ah ok than mods ready waiting for the next version
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 21, 2013 @ 1:50pm 
dont worry about the ups script that will go away when you download the next mission from us its just trying to load the mission in the background of the game launch at the begginging or when your in the opening screen. the map like i said is going to give low fps thats why we are putting out a new version till then its going to be low sorry.
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 21, 2013 @ 12:35pm 
its ment for a dedicated server, not your personal comp. try our server TFA+WN in the search feild.
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 20, 2013 @ 5:28pm 
you need to watch the video abvoe to learn how to pack and unpack mods.

Hey, I got some problems.
When I start the mission i get 2 issues,
"You cannot play/edit this mission; it is dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted.dbo_terrain_cfg"
and
"No entry 'bin\config.bin/cfgworlds.dbo_afghanistan"

I guess its the mission files which I tried copy to game folder. Can anyone help explain where which file is going to make it work?
Where's BoB aT? Sep 20, 2013 @ 9:54am 
I play Lan mostly with 4 of my other friends, would that do it? Also cant wait for that Escort mission, sounds fun
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 19, 2013 @ 9:28pm 
not sure what the issue you are have are now. we tend to get in the 20-45 range. The missions made for a dedicated server other servers hosting of their own PC its going to drain your FPS because of how many objects we have put into the mission.

I will update this one again later on but we have been working on a VIP ESCORT mission. With afghan i wanted to just get it out there and update as i go along. VIP escort is going to be more polished and we are using the maps towns not really creating much as far as towns.

My goal is to have it up by the weekend. It uses the same mods as this one except no AC130,F18,or Afghan. It runs Sweedish forces,Private Military Contractors,Htunes edior objects and like i said if you have played Afghan you will not need to download anymore mods for this mission.
Where's BoB aT? Sep 19, 2013 @ 6:44pm 
It must just be me, but im still getting some crazy lag. I normally run my settings on very high, but i still lag, when i even set it to standard settings. sucks, great map thogh
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 18, 2013 @ 10:21am

ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 18, 2013 @ 10:14am

ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 17, 2013 @ 3:32pm 
the lag is from BIS bad modeling of building when they are damaged or destroyed so untill i can go in and make all of the buildings unable to be destroyed.......******.DONT DESTROY THEM OR YOU WILL LAG AND CAUSE THE SERVER TO LAG ******* I am fixing it and will have it done by the weekend. Busy week. and no i cant type bigger

TFA+WN (UP AND RUNNING!!!) HOSTED BY WARRIOR NATIONS KARNEX
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 17, 2013 @ 1:24pm 
ANY FPS PROBLEMS ARE BECAUSE OF BIA'S MODELING ISSUES WHEN YOU DESTROY A BUILDING OR DAMAGE IT THEN THE SERVER GETS LOWWWWW FPS. WE RESTARTED EARLIER AND ARE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING THE BUILDINGS ON THE MAP NON DESTRUCTABLE.
[CrossFire] -Cool Breeze- Sep 17, 2013 @ 12:08pm

Tried to join server and get message Bad Version, Server rejected connection
ltdanthomas  [author] Sep 17, 2013 @ 8:29am 
that would be my stupid ass putting up the wrong llink last night before i logged off my bad boys ill get that link up for you today. But if you want a copy of the mission. just go to our server and join the game. After you are in the room its already downloaded to your AppData file. Search TFA in filter on arma you will find our dedicateds. The server key and screen shots are not used. there server key is used by us on the dedicated. you only need the @ folder that inside. Task module doesnt seem to be working so read breifing if you are wondering what to do we are working on trying to figure out why they are not working in game but are find in editor.
