Exactly. NATO wasn't invading there officially or it wasn't an invasion from NATO. Some members and other countries did.

The strange and complexity of the Syrian civil war is kida difficult. There are so many sides! And those sides sometimes (not always) work together. Morever some member of the same side out of this conflic are fighting or supporting different sides in other conflicts! Insane!

Sides (more or less):
-USA + friends (can't remember well but Belgium, UK, Australia... something like that):
They attack Syrian government and ISIS and are against Russia and Turkey but they don't attack them directly. They support Free Syrian Army and the Kurds in the north.

-Turkey: attacks Syrian government, the Kurds and ISIS. Against Russia and USA but don't attack them directly (remember Turkey is a NATO member!) They collaborate with USA against ISIS and Syria.

-Kurds: backed by USA in the war against Syria and ISIS. They are at war with Syria and Turkey and ISIS. (not sure what happens with Free Syrian Army)

-Syrian Rebels or Free Syrian Army: Against Syrian government, Russia and ISIS.

-Russia: supports Syria against Turkey, the rebels, USA and friends, ISIS, not sure about Kurds.

-Syria: attacks Kurds, Rebels, ISIS. Against USA, Turkey and against Israel...

Oh yes! I didn't tell you, Israel is there too.

-Israel: attacks Syrian government and Hezbollah. Supports the rebels and made business with ISIS.

-Hezbollah: attacks Israel.

This list is brief and uncomplete so know this is a very complex area of conflict because there are more than one conflicts and interests.

Quote from: alanrotoi on February 21, 2024, 01:42:52 AMI mean 2003's invassion of Iraq. You are right it wasn't NATO saying "I will invade" but it was an international coalition invading the country where half of them were NATO members:

Yep, I also meant that one. The article you link is to the third group, in 2004, which also included support from Jordan and UAE. All of the country involved where also UN members, but you don't say "the UN invaded".

The first (and second) forces to actually invade Iraq a year earlier where US, UK, Australia and Poland. Good chunks of of the EU (or NATO, if you prefer) at the time were going "WTF are you doing?! 😱"  And then the whole false documentation about weapons of mass destruction thing followed.

Well, the only point I wanted to make is that NATO messed up badly in the ex-Yugoslavia area, and did some work to avoid doing the same mistakes later. Iraq 2003 was a US led (misled?) thing, and NATO as a structure only participate as you described, with instructors and trainers for what (at that point, and with all caveats) was the recognised government. Happy for you to call them "invaders", but I prefer to remember the difference between 160'000 soldiers entering a country with weapons, with the idea of "we don't like what's going on here, we'll shoot people", and 160 people two years later, with the mission of "ok, there's a mess here now, can we help create some stability?"

Thanks again guys!

Boxer indeed makes it own C:drive per game. Here are all my costum tracks and replays located. I tried to put the Zack track which is currently used in the competition in that drive and it showed up in the game.

So I guess, problem solved!

I'll go and play the game a little bit more. And maybe I'll even participate in a couple of races in the future. It sounds and looks pretty cool!
