An Audio & Visual Realism Total Overhaul Mod for Running With Rifles.

  • Designed from the ground up to work with the official invasion servers.
  • Designed for 7.1 Surround Sound Emulation Software or Speaker Setup.

The aim of the INFANTRY MOD PROJECT is to turn Running With Rifles into a more realistic visually & audibly engaging, believable third person tactical shooter, also introducing new game mechanics that respect the integrity of the original game while also being compatible with the official invasion servers.

**INFANTRY** version 1.5

INFANTRY MOD was originally first launched on Steam Workshop 11th February 2017 as version 1.0

Due to the nature of the mod overwriting vanilla game files and its shear size (in excess of 1GB uncompressed), this has caused much controversy on Steam Workshop and the Steam Workshop Terms of Service, very much so that i have been in private contact with Jack Mayol an RWR developer, he has allowed me to list the mod on Steam Workshop contrary to the terms of services interpretation which is very kind of him to do so.

The mod has simply grown so large now that i cannot feasibly host it on Steam Workshop and have decided to make ModDB the new home of INFANTRY MOD to further develop the mod and give its fans more power through customizability of what they want to download from the INFANTRY MOD PROJECT.

is there a way to extract this mod in game BUT without units camo? = leaving vanilla game units clothes.
i find changes of this mod interesting to check(especially cross-fire and red line showing block of sight) but camo of units is horrible, can't determine who is who.. if it's again for realism, for pity i don't appreciate it.

soo what files shouldn't be copied to game to leave units cloth vanilla?

The game has been on the market now for five years, now would be a good time to publish
this game drm free again. I think it would be great to see this game on Humble or GOG.

Amazing gameplay

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

This game is amazing the only problem is no one is ever on multiplayer and i dont know why the game is so good and for such a low price i never see anyone one, at most maybe 1-4 people why aren't more people playing this???

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

yupp, there aren't many people playing it online yet.
The game should be on Steam Early Acess in the next 3-4 weeks, so except much more players by then as the playerbase should grow significantly.

I've been watching and playing this game since the .67 days. Watching the way this game has grown and flourished is amazing.

You have managed to capture the feelings and experiences- in a little top-down voxel shooter, even- that big name games like Planetside and Planetside 2 haven't ever managed to give me. I've got nothing but positive to say. :)

This is a great game. I've described it to friends as a combination between General Chaos, Cannon Fodder, a rather obscure but innovative game called Net War and once vehicles are added, even a touch of Warhawk. On top of all of this, the developer is great and really listens to the community.
