This is the first user made campaign for Armed Assault (ArmA), initially released November 25th 2006.
Missions are pure infantry combat where you take the role of Army squad leader, special forces team leader and sniper.
No Queens Gambit required.
This campaign uses saveStatus and weaponPool, so you must delete the old savegames found on your ArmA User Profiles directory (where ever that is) or the saves and weapons get lost/corrupted. Simply delete Saved/ dir completely, if you have other campaigns going, then you should specifically only delete the PMC campaign stuff, but how to do that… you'll need to figure out by your own.
Place PMC_First_Fight.pbo into the mod dir of your choice under “campaigns/” directory. In my ArmA its d:\ArmA\x_pmc\campaigns\ directory which I launch with -mod=x_pmc parameter.
