Gents, it was obvious this day was coming though given we have a nice little community with a few core members who drift in and out, I've created a discord server where the chit chat, gaming and ArmA reminiscing can continue. I'll send the link out to many of you shortly. Once connected, site staff and moderators will be given permissions and we can populate the server with those friends from this forum we remain in touch with and/or have on Steam ect.

Unfortunately changes in distribution of content to those of years past proved too difficult for site traffic to keep up. It's been a great ride, all the way from OFP.info! Thank you to the moderators and site staff, you've done a fantastic job in our busier times and you've hung around far longer than anyone would have believed. It's a testament to the strength and commitment of our core contributors in this community.

Hey guys, nice to see that you're still there.
I did not log in since a so long time that I had to try 4 or 5 passwords to find which one was the good one. ^^
The OFPr.info site is maintained by gamepark.cz, i don't have any visibility on it and how long it will remain online, I'll just stop the ofpr.info domain name rental since I think it is quite useless now. Site domain is still ofp.gamepark.cz.

On a side note, I play War Thunder, a great game that combines planes and tanks (and soon ships), a bit like world of tanks but in a realistic and more mature way. Feel free to contact me there (cervomix).

Cheers,

Well, that sucks.

(What even is a discord? Is it like a myspace? From Wittmann's PM it sounds like some kind of forum, but I thought it was something like IRC?)

Thanks for the info! (And for keeping the site up for so long obviously!)

My password is easy to remember as it is a tribute to you *ahum* naughty.gif

The main reason I asked is because Jerry Hopper hosts the file server for the OFP site as well, so even if the site stays up it will make the links to downloads no longer work. I am working on a full torrent of the site's files so that people can use the old links from the newsposts and find the appropriate file(s) from the torrent. ofp.gamepark.cz will survive armedassault.info. I don't think many would have imagined that all those years ago cool.gif

OFP will never die!

The end of an era. Gosh, what's it been? Thirteen years for me, I believe. Thirteen years with so many ups and downs…
I'll have to download a whole lot of addons for OFP to relive the days of old once more. Wanted to replay the Resistance campaign for so, so long…

Is there a way to download my PMs on this forum? I tried the Archive function but it doesn't actually do anything ...

You can copy/paste the 281 pages on a text editor, print it as a nice PDF and/or hand copy it on parchment.

True, that's a part of our life (and of our youth) that we leave behind.
I really had a lot of fun to post things on ofp and arma site (If i remember i posted around 6000-7000 news on ofp). That was when i had a lot of free time and no kids! smile.gif

I suppose the day had to come. It's been a privilege and an honor to have this website available for so many years. It's a shame the community isn't as it was back in the day. I thank you all for your years of service! Much obliged!

À votre santé! drunk.gif

Is this forum closing down?

any chance of setting up a kickstarter and a goal for yearly funds required to keep the site(s?)/forums alive?

You're still alive? I was sure one of those car accidents would take you out eventually. tongue.gif

Just goes to show how far car construction has come since the early days. Back in the day those fender benders he specializes in would have meant death for everyone involved.
