  1. I have recently purchased a very rare big box edition of Operation Flashpoint Red River and was totally amazed not only by the fact that this is the only 'big box edition' of the game but that it is for Chinese players. It is kinda strange to create a special big box edition of a game in which you can play only as a US marine fighting against Chinese for the Chinese market. I was so blown away by it that I made my first ever unboxing video. Check it out.

    I totally agree with you on that it would not bring a lot of money. But how much would it cost to make? I know nothing about making games and may be wrong, but would it really cost too much to make 10-20 mission campaign, hire some B or C grade actor(s) and essentially use the existing editor? They could sell it on steam for 1 usd and people would dig it. I'm not sure about PCs, but it would be a hit on consoles because there is no other, to my knowlege, game like Dragon Rising on consoles. It would not be a mega success but it would create a new foundation. There are so many geopolitical hotspots you can relate to and create a nice strory... If they hired me, I'd definitely come up with one:). And there is NO BETTER time to do it than now. 2021 marks 20 YEARS OF FLASHPOINT. I wonder if BA or CM are up to something to mark the anniversary. There are still many 'active' players who remember the CWC, but we are in out late 30's, and it feels like there will be no other chance. I, for example, am more of a collector of everything that is related to OFP, than a gamer now, but I still play sometimes. By the way, wanna see something interesting? Check out this video about Red River https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPH3wENQclQ I mean you make a game in which people play as US Marines that kill and say a lot of bad things about PLA soldiers, and then you go and make a full special big-box Cinese version of the game, clearly for the Chinese market... 🙂 This is like sellng pork sausages at a market somewhere in Kabul:) What do you think about it? Stay safe

    In my opinion, ArmaA has inherited a lot from the original title. A lot but not everything. Dragon Rising and, especially, Red River give me a sense of realism. These games feature REAL countries and armies. There is a link to the present or past geopolitical situation in the world and there IS also a freedom of choice how you want to complete each mission, (though not as much as in ArmA). These features mixed with very interesting campaigns was what blew my mind 20 years ago. At first, I really hated ArmaA for their takistans, nogovas, non-existing armies, somehow fighting NATO forces and other bs. It wasn't before A3 that I gradually came to like it, even bought that rare edition with the silver medal and sometimes play it, too... But I still don't think much of some of their visuals: explosions still look like torn bags of flour being tossed in the air, bullet hit animation is too simplistic, but the worst thing is sounds, especially of shots fired 100 or more meters away.. . It's probably the BEST game for people who like pure milsim, and multiplaying experience, but I don't see it as a successor of Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crisis. Just don't feel its spirit in it. And as for breaking through 10 years of development, I really think that if CM created a new campaign for Ofp 2 using the same graphic and engine as in Dragon Rising, people would buy it for sure. Try playing the fully patched version. It's great. Sorry for a wordy post. It's Sunday, got nothing to do.

    Rebirth of Operation Flashpoint

    I totally agree. I really miss Red River. I mean I can play it and I still do, but would really like to buy another DLC for it or see a new part of this game or that of Rragon Rising. I am a big fan of both titles. I even have the collector's edition of Dragon Rising (with the WW2 helmet) It's got so much potential! By the way, how do I join your community?

    Rebirth of Operation Flashpoint

    I totally agree. I've tried to reach out to Codemasters many time, I even left a message on Sion Lenton's youtube page hoping to get any reply. I really miss Red River. I mean I still play it (played campaign last night again) and Dragon Rising, too. But I want them back. I'd definitely pay for another RED RIVER DLC. How do I join your community?
  7. Seriously, trying to get any answer from the community regarding FSP titles is like being a jew trying to pray to Christ! Hundreds of request but no replies... Why don't Codies at least tell us why they buried the the love of my life of a game?! I'm willing to pay 5 times as much for a new pack of missions for my Red River than I paid for the Valley of Death in Red river just to see the Codies do something for it.

    Hi from Thailand

    Hello everyone. Originally, I'm from Ukraine, but live in Thailand. I'm 39, have a family and I am a big fan of Codemasters. As much as I am more into Flashpoint titles, I have played Dirt 3 and liked it. My hobby, apart from playing Red River and Dragon Rising, is collecting eveything that is related to the two titles (posters, rare games etc.). So if anyone knows where I can buy some, apart from eBay, plz kindly let me know. One of my dreams is to see the return of Codemasters to working on Red River or Dragon Rising. Thanks for reading.

    Yes, I really hope they will ge back to the two titles. I would definitely buy another DLC, like Valley of Death in Red River
  10. Dear Sirs, I have been a big fan of Flashpoint Dragon Rising and Red River for many years. Will there be new updates from you? I am a big fan of Flashpoint games (got all the special editions of games, DLCs) and I really hope see the day when Codemasters get back to continue working on the Red River or Dragon Rising. Please, kindly reply.
  11. I hear you, brother. I would very much like Codemasters to go back to woking either on Red River of Dragon Rising. I have recently sent them this letter. Still hoping to get a reply... Dear Sirs, I am writing this letter to you hoping to get a reply to a very simple and yet important question: will you ever work on Flashpoint? A lot of people need, miss this game. I am a big fan of both Dragon Rising and Red River. I spent years playing the RR, got all the trophies, including Valley of Death DLC... Being already 39, and having my own kids who play games, I don't play as often as I used to. But I am still a very big fan. I still hope to get a new DLC for my Red River which I still play sometimes on my PC. I have been collecting everything that is related to the two titles. I've got a rare edition of DR with WWII helmet and I have recently got the the Official Strategy Guide book which is absolutely amazing. P. S. I also have a request. I'm currently looking for your Big Box Edition of Red River for PC (my DVD has been used so many times that is doesn't work properly).I am also looking for other items, like a T-shirt, mug etc with the logo of Red River or Dragon Rising. Please, let me know if I could buy them from you directly. I would be honored. I would definitely love to get any of your unoficial / beta DLCs that you haven't released for RR or DR, if you have them of course. Your kind reply, any reply, would totally make my day. Thank you for reading. Kind regards, Volodymyr
