Played the tutorial last night, kind of quickly as I did not have much time. Look and played well. Quick install, easy to play. Will not really have much time until tomorrow.

Excellent.

Not really. They are on the verge of release the 2.03 patch (this game started at 2.0). Should be in the next week or so. Most serious bug is the inability of ADA assets to hurt enemy helo units. Livable now and is addressed in the incoming patch even more.

Development team is VERY responsive and dedicated. Not some big company that wants to **** out a game and move on. 2-4 man shop, one or none full time. For gamers made by gamers.

Can't give this one a higher recommendation.

What software are you running for the screen capture? I need a better program than the one I'm running now.

A new video for [FPC] Fulda: Frontier of Freedom (MP) has been added the YouTube Harpoon for Dummies channel. This video covers Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm and celebrates the latest 2.03 patch release.

You can watch [FPC] Fulda: Frontier of Freedom (MP)



After-Action Report for the Fulda: Frontier of Freedom scenario between Michael Orwick (a.k.a. OJsDad) and Herman Hum for v2.02a FlashPoint Campaigns: Red Storm.

This video after-action report was originally planned as a joint effort between opponents to show both sides of the same battle, but real life circumstances prevented Michael from recording his NATO orders. Apologies in advance for the extreme length of this video as the level of descriptive detail contained within is very high. Fulda is currently the largest scenario written for the game.
