Great news for our Wolfenstein Community, as WolfETPlayer releases the latest version of his superb mod, "RealRtCW". A very nice Christmas present for us all to enjoy :) .
Overhauled difficulty system to satisfy both new and experienced players. Your maximum health and ammo capacity depends on the difficulty level. Enemies accuracy,health and reaction time depends on it as well. In the "vanilla" version of the game all this stuff was the same for every difficulty level.
It looks something like this now:
Easy - Full health, increased ammo capacity, increased pickups values, low AI accuracy, low AI health
Medium - Full health, standard ammo capacity, standard pickups values, medium AI accuracy, medium AI health
Hard - 3/4 health, lowered ammo capacity, low pickups values, increased AI accuracy, medium AI health
Death Incarnate - 1/2 health, low ammo capacity, low pickups values, insane AI accuracy, increased AI health
Also some balance tweaks were done:
Pistols' fire rates increased G43 and M1_Garand damage increased Sprint speed increased MP40 fire rate decreased PPSH fire rate increased MP34 magazine capacity increased to 32, fire rate increased FG42 zoom increased Mauser rifle damage decreased for AI AI can't headshot the player now Armour protection value slightly increased Gib health increased to avoid silly gibbing
Reworked User Interface:
The old interface was fine, but not very comfortable. Me and AidenDemon made some tweaks to it to make it shine. Loadscreens were redone from scratch by AidenDemon. The "UI" is fully compatible with both widescreens and 4:3 ratios.
Renderer2 is fully compatible with RealRTCW now. You can use new iortcw renderer with RealRTCW. All crashes were fixed. Renderer specific CVARS were added in the main menu.
New brass effect ported from "Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory". Shell vectors were changed, shells ground impact sounds added.
Hi folks, maybe you noticed the current hype. And what the hell is a hype if nobody follows?. We do follow. Splatterladder is starting to use https encryption. During the next weeks, successive each SL section will be available over the https-protocol.
If you're using our server monitor, mumble-viewer or the signature, you can switch to https also. (Maybe you noticed, that http-content included on https-sites causes a warning in the browsers address bar).
This is a super-fun Christmas Mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and RtCW Cooperative Mod, created by Yo$hik. Lopers in antlers, smoking snowmen, Santa hats, Christmas present health packs and lots of Christmas trees, all adding to the festive fun :) .
"Hey, everyone! It's been a while since the last status report, but now I'm ready to share some new information about the upcoming 2.2 update." - WolfETPlayer
New Feature - New Hand/Foot Skins:
Thanks to Eugeny, we have new hand/foot skins in the RealRTCW 2.2. What does it mean? Well, BJ's hands and foot appearance now depends on the map. For example on the Norway chapter you will have snow camouflage, while on the Dam chapter you will have dark camouflage for the night mission. This feauture is also implemented in the Trondheim trilogy.
New Weapons Textures:
Also, I was able to get in touch with the professional texture artist. He is not from the modding community. However, Since he has great experience experience in creating textures on the Unreal Engine 4 and Unity Engine too. I asked him to improve some of the RealRTCW weapons textures. He is almost finished.
The Good News?
The good news is that RealRTCW 2.2 is going to be released in December. I'm not sure when exactly. It can be in the upcoming week, it could be at end of December. Right now I'm testing the new version, trying to improve balance. With the new difficulty system you need to balance 4 .ai files not just one, so it's taking some time.
The Bad News?
Unfortunately some of the promised content is not going to appear in RealRTCW 2.2. I'm talking about the Scoped M1 Garand and P38. Why? Remember this weird bug with the dynamite icon in RealRTCW 2.1 (still persisting in 2.2)? Well, the thing is, RtCW has some weird weapon limits. So this bug appeared because I added too many weapons. When I added the Scoped Garand and Revolver this bug "evolved", the Luger became two-handed weapon for some reason, the colt icon disappeared too. So I decided to remove the Scoped M1 Garand and keep the Revolver by removing the Walther P38. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to resolve this issue.
Also the new difficulty system was successfully implemented in the custom addons. RealRTCW 2.2 will be released along with the Trondheim Trilogy, Project51 and Pharaoh's Curse. Stalingrad, Time Gate, Capuzzo and Hidden Wolf will be updated too.
Devils Right Hand, the creator of "Montain Pass Beta 4", has kindly updated his map in order to please those who complained that the original map file was too big. There are also new botfiles included in this updated download too.
If you have the original map file and want to use the new version instead, just delete the original one from your "ETMain" folder and replace it with this new one.
This is the latest and much improved version of "ET:Blight Mod", created by Smurfer. This modification is very much a work in progress, but is still a lot of fun to frag on, with new weapons, weapons sounds and new models.
"ET:Blight" is built on "ETPub Mod", version 0.9.1.
This is the latest release of "Mountain Pass", created by Devils Right Hand.
The Axis forces have hidden an enormous stash of gold and priceless artwork in old, abandoned mines, somewhere in the mountains. The Allies have been unable to locate this stash, however, Allied HQ has received intel that secret documents, pertaining to the whereabouts of this stash, are located in a nearby mountain village.
The Allied squad must locate and infiltrate this village, steal the top secret documents, steal a truck and make their escape back to Allied HQ.
The final part of the M1 Garand video tutorial has been released by Gordon from "InspirationalTuts", as he embarks on creating brand new, up-to-date weapons for every model in this classic World War 2 shooter.
Also, it's time to get voting again, ladies & gents, because the next new weapon model to be created for "Wolfenstein: ET: Legacy", after the iconic MP40, has to be decided. Which weapon will you choose? As always, please show your supoort for Gordon and the rest of the "ET:Legacy" devteam by subscribing to the channel and giving the new videos a "thumbs up" too, folks.
