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!

I just bought this game, its currently downloading, just wanted to know (ill still love the game anyway) whats the online community like in terms of numbers? im not even entirely sure how the multiplayer works (as i said, the game is currently downloading :p) and what is lag like? Would just be interested to know, im still going to play it :D

Lag depends highly on which server you play on. The current 2 official 24/7 servers are located in Finland and US East Coast, I happen to get 14ms to the first and 140ms to the second. To me 140ms seems highly enjoyable, vehicle steering starts to be rather clunky at that point, but better just pick another seat and let someone else do the driving :)

At times, there are also a few dedicated servers in US West Coast, i'm getting over 200ms lag there which starts to affect the way to play the game, e.g. you need to shoot in front of others to make actual hits. While it definitely isn't out of question to play with over 200ms lag, it's certainly not ideal.

Hi Rohkmer,
the online community isn't very big yet for now. There a often a few guys playing online but rarely more than 3-4 at the same time for now.

Hey thanks guys, yeah ive been playing this non stop for like 8 hours now, and im having a lot of fun. I did check the server list, and there were, as you said Pasik, those two US and finland servers. I live in australia, so i doubt my ping would be ideal, so i havnt tried playing online yet. And when i did check, there was one player on each server, so i decided it wasnt worth the lag. In any case, the game is a heap of fun, and ill probably check out the multiplayer soon.

Also, on a sidenote, why a server based in finland? seems a bit random haha

anddddddd on a side side note, where can i find (if there is) planned features for the finished game. Forum, im most guessing?

(apologies for the wall of text :p)

Hey Rohkmer,

the server in Finland is the first official server (Pasik's Laptop running at his home).
For the features and stuff you might check the official homepage about section, it helps sometimes :p ( Modulaatio.com ), as long with the Tutorial ( Modulaatio.com ).
There is also a tool that allows you to be informed how many players are online ( Modulaatio.com ).
Would be cool if you could tell us what ping you have to the US and Finland server, as the aussies actually aren't the smallest RWR community out there.

Hi jack, thanks for the reply! :D

Ive just played on the US server, and im not sure what my ping is (dont know how to check) but it is definatly playable, will all guns except the sniper being very non laggy. only with the sniper do i notice bullet lag, resulting in having to lead targets a bit more.

I havnt tried the finland one, but thats EU, so it will be much greater lag i would suspect.

Also, just a question, if you have played on the US server, does it change map? the game i was in, we'd just won, but the server restared, no map change. It was the winter map

Hi Rohkmer, a mapcycle isn't implemented yet, it has to be done manually. Of course this will change one day (dedicated servers don't exist for so long yet). For the ping, you can press "DEL" (scoreboard) and you'll see your ping on the right side.

There's a crash that bugs me the F*** off, basically i go to servers list, nothing show up so i refresh about 30 times until it show up, join a game then insta-crash.

Does the crash say anything about a crash dump? If it does, you could locate the crashdump and send it to pasi.kainiemi@modulaatio.com, I'd take a look at it.

If it says something about a log, I'd be interested about that log too, the location is told on the crash dialog.

No update this week, been compiling a new promotional video mostly.

Also the Linux server-side vehicle steering sync issue is now fixed.

Work for 0.74 will start tomorrow.

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.
