Also known as: ARMA: Combat Operations (US)
This game has unused code.
ARMA: Armed Assault, also known as ARMA: Combat Operations, is a tactical military shooter. It is the successor to Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis.
The Armed Assault campaign has these two missions included in ca.pbo, but it will neither launch nor open in the editor.
To repair this, you need to edit mission.sqm within the mission folder. Under Class Vehicles, edit Item17 through Item22 and set vehicle="FlagCarrier". Also, edit Class Intro->Class Intel, and add necessary forecast/time information.
Once it runs, it plays similarly to Night Patrol in Cold War Crisis where you need to defend a communication tower, but there's a few changes. First, a saboteur approaches from the right with a significant chance to attack the player. Second, the saboteur from the left never gets close enough to plant the satchel charge, thus the player only needs to defend against one enemy. Third, a scripting bug prevents the enemy from detonating the satchel charge, making it impossible for the tower to fall.
The mission also contains speech files from the original mission, but the actual voice lines are taken from elsewhere. The lines are spoken properly.
The mission has a few soldiers, codename Team Nightowl, initially placed in Paraiso. They are supposed to deploy to the local area as soon as there's information about infrared contacts, but the transport helicopter is out of fuel. They won't be able to reach the mission area by the time the mission ends.
