Quoting myself from the MR News thread:
Quote:
[MR%20News] 
Hello Iron front Community!

Today i stumbled apon the Russian community forums, and to my surprise they have a forum section dedicated to Iron front.
In this forum section similar to here they have a mission section, well after google translating the section, I seen listed 50+ missions of all types! [eek][crazy][thumb]
basically what i felt when I seen this, [biggrin] but most from what i can see are sp,coop,mpmodes, missions I do not have on the MR!!!!
  So I had contacted Greez who is a member here, and a moderator on that forum to see what I can do, and to get more information, as google translate isn't
exactly 100% accurate with its translations.
I had registered to the forum btw as thats the only way to gain access to download the missions.

The forum im referring to is this one: http://www.gmnet.ru/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=236
If anyone can help me with Russian translation and with this, i'd like to if possible and with permissions put all these missions on the MR
for the Iron front community, if you can help send me a pm here.

This thread will be used to discuss any news, developments, and finds, and anything else for this, please use this thread
and not the MR News thread.

Thanks for your support and interest!

All for now.

Ya I say about 50+ because theres quite a few missions per thread available, thing is i will have to review each page to acquire these missions,
basically what i did originally on the Official IF forums before I built the MR.

If there is an agreement from the forum it is going to be a lot of work - maybe the briefings and mission subs are in Russian too?
Will the language set when the Mission is created move with the Mission?

One person responded and said:

about permission - I think guys wouldn't mind.

So basically i dont think anyone cares, as Im only listing and hosting what they have there on the MR.
Now when i list each mission i will have the info for that missions accordingly, i translate as I go, only problem I see with the missions themselves is that the language in the missions will be in Russian, as to me it wouldn't make any sense to buy an English speaking version of Iron front if you are Russian and speak...Russian, so IDK about this.

On the flip side the majority of missions are team vs team missions, i did see some sp missions in there and coops, again the language
in the mission will probably be Russian,idk if theres anything that can be done about this, probably not,
so what you guys think should I go on with this project idea or not waste my time?,
I mean those Russian fans that dont know about these missions can benefit but idk about the English speakers.

Also I was going to build a whole new section for these missions anyways on the MR, it will have its own page
and linked under Multiplayer modes.
Your guy's thoughts.

Heres the current situation, i'm slowly acquiring the missions, I have about 5 so far, thing is they have quite a few sticky threads with multiple pages
where I need to review each page and make sure I get the right, and latest version for the mission that is in discussion on the thread, so thats what is taking time,
among other things.

Alright guys heres some news of my progress, currently I have covered all the loose threads (nonstickied) and 2 stickied threads for missions.
I have 20 stickied threads to comb through for missions yet, and lastly I have acquired so far get this....
4 templates
48 missions

I guess i was right about the 50+ missions [eek]
I'd have to say most if not all of these are pvp, or tvt but I actually want to take a look at some of these and see how they are setup.
Anyways my plan is once i acquire the rest of the missions I will have a separate page for all of them.

All for now.

Definitely go ahead ~ If it comes down to it, worst-case scenario will be playing Missions with the Briefing/Objectives/Menu's etc in Russian - just a challenge - best case is editors can pull apart the .pbo's and maybe get new ideas. Pleased to see Templates in the list, I would be curious to see these, maybe also you will come across some textures not hitherto available?

Ok guys currently I have built the page on the MR for the Russian Hard mode missions, i have uploaded them all Sunday and the rest today,
and have listed them all, you can see the page on the MR its under MPModes but i will provide a link, this link will break once I add more missions to the page:
http://www.missionrepository.com/rus-hard-mode-missions-50
the 51 at the end of the link indicates the number of missions listed, once I add more the link is no good.

Anyways what I need to do yet is the following:
  • Add a map option to the page so users can pick a map and only get missions listed for that map
  • research and download all the missions from the sticky threads on the Russian forum
  • add some other things to the page on the MR

All for now.

Welcome.
I had to remove a mission because It was a port of Domination.
Dirty Haz told me about it on steam, the Russian guys apparently ported the Domination mission which I just thought was a version they created
which it was but its a port all the files in it are from xeno and he says thats
not allowed so I have to respect his wishes and removed the mission from the list, apparently the Russian guys dont respect that but thats on them.

Anyways as stated in my previous post more to come.

Currently I have updated the page where a person can choose missions based on map, I have 4 pics of each map for all the missions, each pic
is linked to a page for that map, so you can look for missions based on the map.

Aside that i still need to do the sticky threads on the Russian forums and atm im in no rush with the other projects i got going,
so in do time, and when im not tired as sh*t from my job [rolleyes]

How are peeps getting along with these missions? As (generally) an SP player I delved into a couple to try them out. They have some very impressive complexities. Mission-makers take note, we can learn a lot from these - maybe the mode will be unfamiliar, it is for me, but definitely worth a look just to see the density of gameplay they introduce.
