New premium GameStar TV video: Floge 64/09 (18:58)

Just found by JoeAcorn, is a new preview/interview it looks like from GamesStar TV. I have no idea whats in it as I don’t pay GameStar to watch online videos. If you got a account check it out and let us know what it like (Forums, IRC, Twitter, OFP2.org Comments).

Source: IRC

#Update
During the typing of the e-mail and making of this news post Shaz (The media bloodhound and local street dealer) was informed of this video. He is now ‘acquiring it’ and attempting to upload.

New 500mb Video Inbound from GamesCom

Apparently our German comrad illuminator has got his hands on a 20min gameplay Video at around 4am EST. There is no sound and there is only German commentary. However it’s apparently nice stuff, a new mission and filmed in assisted gamemode.

It is apparently being uploaded. Illuminator had the following early comments:

  • Yeah, there are buildings with more than one floors.
  • Multi level destruction (player destroyed nearly a tower, the half still stands)
  • If you die in the coop mode, your view switch to one of your team mates in third view
  • If you got a headshot and it’s not possible to heal you, you will be reanimate when one of your team mates reach the next checkpoint (checkpoints are not available in Hardcore Gamemode)

Flashpoint News from GamesCom starting to trickle in.

We have just received our first look at the Flashpoint booth from what looks like a ESL insider.

GamesCom

The general expectation is that tomorrow when the event opens to the public that we will hear more news on the subject. We are not expecting mind blowing life altering content, however with OFP:DR news you never know what might show up. So stay tuned to here or your inbox and if it happens, we will let you know. We hope for at least somthing from some one. Perhaps a fan will get out there :D

Understanding the problem on official forums.

As a leading fansite of the game this issue has not gone unnoticed by the staff here. I (Sir. Polaris) has spoken many of times out on this subject and offered many viable options to correct the issues we face.

This issue however still remains and still confuses some people. I get asked too often “why is this happening?”. As a result I have created this flowchart. It’s aim is to help create a understanding on a fairly complex issue. This issue which is a root problem in the larger issue of the degeneration of the forums.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

This, combined with a review of my previous postings should give a soild understanding of the issue and what steps you can help take to avoid being a part of the problem and to correct the issues we have now. It should also bring awareness to why saying “lets just forget about it”, wont do any good.

3D Juegos – New spanish preview

Thanks to community member 1Mystic-G A new, spanish preview was found. The translation can be found here.

  • According to the preview, Year 2009 will be known to gamers as “The year of the Dragon”. Realism and spectacle walk hand in hand in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, according to the preview, and is a worthy competitor for ArmA 2.
  • To cover large distances, vehicles are a must. however, sometimes you’d might prefer walking to stay unseen.
  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will have to do with reduced graphics, compared with other shooters which where released recently. However, it’s definitely worth the sacrifice, since the realism will profiteer from it, and the size of the island as well.

The translated preview can be found here. The original post from 1Mystic-G can be found here

1UP Preview – Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising

In Ruins

A new preview has been found on One up.

First Paragraph:

Most military-themed games are either roller-coaster shooters (the Call of Duty franchise) or shooters with tactical elements (Rainbow Six); the original Operation Flashpoint fitted neither of those distinctions, as it was more of an “infantry in war” simulator. That is, instead of filling your screen with spectacle and flourish while leading you down a very deliberately-designed experience, Operation Flashpoint just placed you in the world with yourself, some gear, a mission objective, a detailed array of systems (movement, weapons, A.I., etc.) to consider, and the freedom to figure out how to fulfill your missions with your toolset. It was simultaneously hardcore, tense, unforgiving, and exhilarating at times. So while the original developers have moved on to the ArmA franchise, Codemasters is trying to recapture some of OF’s intense infantry-simulation magic with Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising.

Tweakers.net – New Dutch preview found

Thanks to heroes member ubermachtig, a new dutch preview was found. The pages have been translated for you:

Page 1, Page 2, Page 3
The preview states a couple of important things:

  • In the version they played, switching from easy to hard ONLY changed the HUD elements. The AI didn’t improve skill in any way.
  • The first mission was relatively easy, the second one was pretty diffcult, and let the writer realised how deathly a single bullet was. He never used the restart button so much in a game
  • Graphical aspect – Where ArmA 2 went down on dated engine techniques, Operation Flashpoint shows how to do everything better
  • there where no graphical differences between the X-Box and the PC version, according to the writer

Here you go another preview. Still haven’t had the time to read this one before sending it out – so no review still from me. As noted before heard this is a really detailed and important preview to read. The thread didn’t get to many hits though.

New Preview – German Gamestar Mag

Just posted is a rough translation of a big preview from German print mag GameStar. This is apparently a hands on test on the PC.

Some major points:

  • Development status of the game (estimation by Gamestar): 60 %
  • OFP:DR will have 15 missions.
  • There will be a timer, after a hit, which shows the TTL (Time to live)

### Update ###
We have acquired a copy of the magazine, thanks to a Hero in Germany.

GameStar – April 2009 GameStar – April 2009Sir. Polaris

Thanks to community member Nomisum we have received a translation to the German preview released yesterday.

Helios on Swimming/Jumping

As posted by Helios today:

Hi all,

I remember recently a few people have asked about jumping and swimming in the game, so I just thought I’d share a few details regarding these actions, and whether they will be in the game or not.

There isn’t a jump button in the game, but there is an “interact” button which allows you to do things such as vault over small obstacles, open doors etc.

As for swimming, I’ve been told that this is possible and if you really wanted to you’ll actually be able to swim around the whole of Skira island. Bit mental perhaps, but it’s nice to know you’ll have the option tongue Helios on Swimming/Jumping

The swimming (which is actually more like treading water whilst moving in one direction) will only be at surface level though and you won’t be able to dive below the surface. I’m sure you will agree that with all your gear this probably wouldn’t be very realistic anyway?

It is important to note that is now confirms that we will now be able to tread water (much like ARMA, no FarCry2 sidestep swimming) as well this confirms that there is no designated jump button, so there should be no bunny hopping. It is possible however that this interactive button is always active and the default action is jump. However this is good news and a good step forward for OFP2.

Feedback From Helios about the PC Gamer article and other FAQ

Due to some backlash by concerned members of the OFP2 community. Helios has made some postings to clarify what was written in the recent PC Gamer UK article. Addressing one of the biggest concerns mentioned – that of: regular squad mates being able to ‘revive’ [see: heal] and repair.

@ PC Gamers “Squad Mates can Revive” and medical/repair system
“Right everyone,

Just to clear things up for you, here is a basic run-down.

There is a medic class in the game, however every soldier carries basic field dressings that can be used by any soldier to stem bleeding, however field dressings do not ‘heal’ injuries. Also, it is not possible to resurrect dead soldiers in the field.

With regards the repairing vehicles I’ll just reiterate what I posted earlier which is that any soldier can fix a flat tire but they cannot for instance put the rotors back onto the burning shell of a chopper as that wouldn’t be very realistic.

Oh, one more thing….limb loss is fatal. ”

“… Limb loss [is, in regards to] catastrophic damage

You’ll be seeing plenty of shot up people crawling around in OFP: DR of that I can assure you”

@ Fixed Wing Aircraft
“Right everyone,
I’m finally able to confirm to you that fixed wing aircraft aircraft will not be in the game. ”
Source: Playable Fixed-Wing Aircraft

@ Demo
“Exact details TBC”

achievement unlocked Feedback From Helios about the PC Gamer article and other FAQ

@ Achievements and trophies.
“Just so you know, its required by Microsoft that you put a certain amount of achievements into an Xbox 360 game so that the points total 1,000.”

Which means there will be on the 360 some from of achievement system.

@ Weapon/Vehicle Unlocks in OFP: DR
“I’ve noticed quite a few threads regarding whether OFP: DR will be having a weapon/vehicle unlock system like COD4, where if you rank up in MP you get the choice of new weapons/perks to use.

I just want to confirm that this won’t be the case for OFP: DR and that there will be no unlocks.”
