The Tojo's oil - a H&D Deluxe mission add-on

Unread post by p.jakub88 » Thu May 18, 2017 11:00 pm

Hello everyone,

i would like to share with you my fortieth-seventh created mission add-on for Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe, it is called "The Tojo's oil".

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Unpack all the *.rar archives into your H&D Deluxe data folder (i.e.: C:\Program Files\Take2\Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe\data) and replace data.dta with the new one. The mission add-on is a file with *.add extension. Start the game, choose play add-on and select "The Tojo's oil" from the menu.

MISSION BRIEFING

BORNEO, 1945. We will help the Australian 7th infantry division to liberate Borneo from the Japanese occupation. Our objective is to secure one of the former Dutch oil refineries. The Japanese established a defensive line there. Our attack begins with the support of artillery fire on enemy positions. Good luck!

CREDITS

To NilsZ for providing info about creating destroyable models in 3ds max.
The Japanese truck model, sandbags model and related textures were downloaded from www.cadnav.com, except for the destroyable version of the Japanese truck which i made myself. I made few new models (i.e. Type 92 machine gun). I also re-textured some already existed default H&D Deluxe objects (i.e. enemy uniforms).

IMPORTANT INFO


The mission starts with the artillery fire on the refinery area, so hold Your positions and wait when it finishes - otherwise Your commandos could be injured or even killed. To complete the mission You will need to kill all enemies on the map. Due to the mission size it could take some time to load it - please be patient!

REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK

If you downloaded my mission add-on please give me your feedback. I am waiting your comment. :grin:

NOTE

I re-uploaded the data.rar file once again. It seems, that there were some files missing inside the data.dta archive preventing from launching the game. I apologize for that.

Hi p.jakub88
Unfortunately - I can't run this mission.
I'm unpacking new data and replacing with old one, I'm placing .add file into my data folder but when I'm trying to run my H&D it won't start.
Any advice?

Hi,

i tested this mission on two different PCs (Windows Vista and Windows 7 OS) and worked fine - so this problem is not related to the addon itself (see images below).

Try to unpack the data.dta with Winrar directly to Your main H&D Deluxe directory (i.e.: C:\Program Files\Take2\Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe). The game sometimes has problems to read directly from a *.dta archive. I downloaded the new data.dta as well (the same one that i uploaded on this topic) and i replaced the old one plus i unpacked all folders inside the data.dta archive (bin, procedurals, tables, text) directly to the main H&D Deluxe directory and the game launched without problems.

The new data.dta is needed to run this mission - i made some changes in the inventory table (i added new weapons such Arisaka rifle, changed weapon's statistics to be historically accurate and added new time-bomb type) and added new descriptions for the new weapons and items (such Sten MKIIS and time-bomb with Amatol).

All the new models, textures, sounds, mission briefing, objectives, foto and the mission itself are already packed inside the mission's *.add archive in five folders: maps.mod, missions, models.mod, sounds.mod and text.mod. This is the way that any new add-on for H&D Deluxe need to be made (look here: http://oldsite.hidden-and-dangerous.net ... rial2.html).

I hope that this helps. Please let me know.

EDIT:

Please remember to use for each of my mission and campaign add-ons the data.dta file designed for it (the one posted in the topic with the new mission or campaign itself). There could be some incompatibilities between different data.dta versions that i uploaded here during those years. I added some new weapons, items and descriptions for Japanese, British and German side as well.
