Did you extract the lolextras2 file straight to your ofp directory or did you copy & paste it from another location?

Try adding -nomap into your command line

e.g. "D:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE" -nosplash -nomap -mod=@LOLExtras;@LOLExtras2;@LOLislands;@[LOL] -connect=funhouse.nakedsquid.com[/u]

Report back if it's still not loading properly, hope i've become of some good assistance Rolling Eyes

u need only correctly load in all addons not links
load in with OFPwatch
or use shortcut (watch for mistypes!)

u can also look around for solution in ohter thread in forum.
u arent the only who has problems with load in new pack

One problem I had when I unpacked the lolextras2 files is they create an lolextras2 directory. Inside that directory is the @lolextras2/addons folders. so make sure you pull the one out of the one it created and put it in your operationflashpoint folder, not just the one that was unpacked.

Also check the order you are loading the addons. When you connect to the server it should say "RES;@LOL;@LOLextras;@LOLextras2;@LOLislands. LOLextras and extras2 should not load first, keep things loading in the same order as they were released, this can sometimes cause conflict and create a failure in loading some addons. A good rule of thumb when loading mods and and the such is addon mods first, islands second and client side mods last.

Right click on 7-zip file. From the drop down menu select 7-zip and then Extract Here.

Open up your flashpointpreference and/or your opflashpointpreference file in the same directory that your exe etc are in and run throught that to make sure it is set up. Make sure VC is set, resolution etc and select the display device properties, mine is set for Direct3D HW T&L. Start the game from there and when it gets to the main menu you can shut it down and open normal. I usually do this just to make sure it loads.

Hope this fixes it.

Try adding -nomap to your shortcut or check the "Always Use -nomap" box in the config section of ofpwatch if you use that.
