Hi there!

RWR version 0.99 marks the spot where we consider feature development, and largely content too, complete for what comes to the single player/small scale coop campaign. From this point on, only minor changes will go through into that part of the game, some vehicle texture work, more AI dialogue, tweaking map and campaign win moments, things like that.

RWR 0.99

That means that the campaign is becoming complete with 9 regular maps and 2 special maps for final missions, with the very final mission being introduced in this update. The other major addition this time is the faction specific vehicle models for APC, tank and jeep. Big thanks go to harrified for the two new tank models, awesome work there.

RWR 0.99

Other than those, there have been several fixes, some new support added for stuff specific to the new final mission, and new stuff for modding; see the change log over here.

What's next then? Possibility for remote profiles / profile sharing and online Invasion teamkill penalty mode have been hot topics lately, which I will be working on for the next weeks targeting 0.99.1 update still on this year's side. Minimodes development continues as well, as does the usability tweaking.

In other news, RWR made it to top 100 here in indiedb's own Indie of the Year 2014! Voting is still going on for about a day, so if you haven't voted RWR yet, now's the time!

Anyone else notice that the Green team has a hell of a time winning. No matter which side I play as the Green team gets MURDERED, unless I play Green and rip it up, which isnt always the case. Anyways just wondering if anyone else seems to experience the same one sided battles as I do. Great Game though!!

Also, if you're just playing by yourself, no amount of AI can really do anything against our advanced brains (yea right..). Try playing online for a bigger challenge. Personally, I play green about 99% of the time and I have never felt disadvantaged.

Hey Humung, the faction differentiate only in the color, and the AI isn't colorblind ;)
Also, at a start of a game the bases are distributed randomly so that it definitely is balanced.

Awesome! Haha, yea after I posted it I played and lost to Green. Ugh even losing is fun. Anyways pumped for 0.75... also I can't seem to find online games too often. Is it only on the multiplayer sessions that it can be played? or am I doing something wrong? is Hamachi needed? lol

Don't know if this concerns you exactly, but versions before 0.75 had an issue with the in-game server list showing blank for some people.

servers are a little desolate on weekdays but on the weekends you can find four or five people on a server. Multiplayer sessions are just made to get a bunch of players toghether at the same time. You can also check on the IRC channel, someone might be willing to play mp :)

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.
