Hey! I'm an archiver searching for any content related to Point of Attack 2 (or 1)! Anyone got maps, scenarios, miscellany, or anything interesting at all that isn't included with the sims? I've searched the internet and archives for downloads and forums. I found a lot of downloads, but unfortunately it appears a few downloads were only ever available as attachments on Warfare HQ and never uploaded into the Warfare HQ database. I also found a few forums with many interesting discussions, which of I've read almost all. I've also got POA1 access coming in March.
