A new technical support section was just added to the forums,
To help promote the new game OFP: DR has opened up a agreement with xfire to make a promotion social group. To kick it off they are having a large video contest to show off xfire services while promoting the game though a large creation of media.
Since 2008-08-17 – I have be providing the Operation Flashpoint’s Official Forum’s Community Group. I was wondering why CM was not supportive of the idea when I approached them in the past about mass marketing for free though xfire. Suffice to say CM has finally got down to some basic marketing, and it’s good on them.
Our social group will continue to operate it will be much more moderated for trolls and spammers then the Xfire supported group. As well it’s restricted to community members only so, you have less random “will game have guns? cexk out my pixs!” messages in your IM. We are also planning a week of gaming, and it will involve spamming xfire with images and photos. I cannot offer a gaming rig as a prize but fame and glory and perhaps some swag might help.
Regardless check it out :
Two new in-game video’s have been released, One is from an German Preview, and one has been captured at the E3.
The [HQ] French E3 Video (Pretty long):
The [HD] German Preview video:
Both video’s came as a bit of a surprise. The First French video shows 5 full minutes of footage. The soldiers also speak with a little accent. In the special build mission, the squad is going to blow up a radar station, on a smaller island near the coast of Skira Island.
Helios also announced the grass detail distance can be changed by the user himself; you can find the announcement here
Presumably for april fools, Xfire was Hoffifed and now sports everyones favourite – The hoff all over the site. It’s a little hard on your eyes but a nice change I think. Go see for your self on the OFP2 Xfire page.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that overnight (for North America), the Heroes of OFP2 (The Community Forum Group) won the Xfire Clan of the month.
This is a great achievement for OFP2, and the community behind it. My thanks thanks go to everyone who made this happen!
Also a thanks to Helios and the CM producer for the heads up,
I would like to remind everyone to keep promoting day to day. Don’t see this achievement as a end or a time to let up promoting community growth and development. A large strong Xfire benefits us all – it’s a great show of community power and strength. Not to mention a great tool for events, instant messaging and stat collection. It will also be the staging ground for the community servers and ingame events.
So keep it bookmarked. I’m working on getting a server inbound, I’m just trying to get enough ‘image’ to convince people to donate a $400 USD a month server to a gaming group.
Once again AlexVesten (community artist extraordinaire) pulls though for the OFP2 community once again. Contracted by Sir. Polaris to “Pimp zee OFP2 Auto” on TrackMania, AlexVesten leaped to the task and in less then 3 days time produced a fine skin for OFP2 racing in TrackMania.
Others have taken it upon them selves to get into the TrackMaina spirit and have created their own custom car skins and affixing a [OFP2] tag to the end of their TrackMania names.
If you would like to start racing, click here to read more.
Right now work is being done to get this car ingame. This post will be updated when it is complete.
It’s official TrackMaina fever has hit the Operation Flashpoint communtiy. You can now play with a good chunk of the active OFP2 community,
