I have had Iron front since the GamersGate Version and actually own all X1s expansions for Silent Hunter 3 and most IL-2 Sturmovik expansions - I tried to finish the collection, but they discontinued some packs.

Anyway I was drawn to Iron Front for the Obvious reasons above and I love tactical shooters and even owned Operation Flashpoint, but was not very good (I got my ass kicked on the convoy mission to many times). Now I want to start on the right direction into the latest direction of Iron Front.

I have the Iron front Steam Versions with The D-Day DLC, I have downloaded some cool mission from your site as well. I did try your Mod Conversion with Iron front and Operation Arrowhead and had problems with it, I did probably made some mistake.

So I hope I can bring up some problems I might have here in the future and I am glad to talk to some WWII sim fans.

An edit: I just realized that the real reason I am drawn to Iron Front is the addition of AI missions and campaigns. I loved Day of Defeat Source until 3 out of 4 online was like playing with 10 year olds that just got bullied in school and just want to f-around instead of play a good game. I do not play online games in any way shape or form and that's why I like any offline play. I love Battlefield 2 Forgotten Hope 2 too.

Hello bobrpggamer!
Welcome to the IF Fan Forums!

Your kinda of late to the party to the forums here, as it was buzzing a bit more about couple of years
ago if not longer, no matter forum is still active, im still here every week to help those with IF aspects of the game.

Imo that would be Iron front in Arma3 (IFA3) or also for the full package as its known IFA3_AIO_Lite.
Regardless Iron front is still a good game to play.

Cool, the site is called the MissionRepository, i built the site back in October 2012 when the official Iron front forums
were still up and the developers were working on the game still.
But ya the site is more like an archive and a file storage for the time being, i plan to take it down sometime this
year and transfer its content to a free forum because it cost me money every year to keep it up, unless some of the
IF Fans in the community can help me keep it up,
i'll keep renewing the yearly subscription and domain name to it.

That would be IFA2, if your still interested in that i can help you out get that setup correctly, i still play with IFA2 on occasion.
With IFA2 it came about for the reason that IF itself is not moddable, so the IFA2 project which was developed by Kju,
and a team i put together of 20 member made it
possible to convert the Iron front game to a mod for Arma2oa, and of course with the blessing of the IF Developers
and Publisher to allow us to do that.
Anyways let me know if you need help with it, i'll get you setup.

With IFA2 you can mod, and play IF in Arma2oa, i have a mission series i built for IFA2, me and another
put it together which i plan on updating
again and adding more missions to it:

Sure thing, me and maybe some others are still here to help wherever we can.

Yup most definitely!
The game like OFP, Arma, Arma2oa, and arma3 are all the same in respects that the editor is the core of the game,
all the missions and campaigns that come with the games, and that are built for the game are because of this editor,
imo Iron front is really not so much a game but an editor for the content that is loaded up with it.
Iron front uses a version of the arma2oa engine so that is why they share about the same setup, and functions.
Anyways welcome to the forums, we'll see you around. Cheers!

I thank you for the reply. I forgot to thank you for hosting the mod conversion on an upload site, I was waiting for the "this file has been deleted" message but luckily you have managed to keep to going.

I will do more reading and following of your post later, I am watching "The Walking Dead" right now and have some things to do first. I spent the last couple of days checking missions, making lists of the working ones, trying multiplayer modes with AI and failing to do the Artma II OA mod properly, and just fooling around with Arma II.

Anyway thank you for keeping - not necessarily Iron Front itself - but a good WWII combat game going. Like I said, I gave up on multiplayer a long time ago, and I like the sandbox approach to battles like "Forgotten Hope" for Battlefield 2, and sure as heck not the new Battlefield games.
