As said a few weeks ago RWR 0.93 was coming in a few weeks and now it's indeed here! Most of the crucial changes were covered that time, go check it out if you're eager for a refresher. A cleaned up and probably incomplete change log can be seen here.

Beta 0.93

On other news, my Mac mini has finally arrived, so completing (read: starting) the Mac port gets closer every day. We're also preparing a new demo, so if any of you, the beta-testers, stumble on any crashes or critical launch issues, would be gold for us to know about it. We of course know each and every other bug the game has, so we'll process the other bug reports a bit later, obviously they are welcome too :P Just stop by at the forum and speak your mind!

Any feedback on the current state of campaign would also be highly useful for us. We've obviously played the game for a long time, and to keep the campaign challenging for us, it can become unbearable for newcomers. Campaign difficulty settings are also coming, but aren't there yet. We haven't finished balancing the campaign, far from it, and especially the maps you see in the later phases might be a bit so-so in terms of balance, depending on which route you take. Also writing (faction, map and base names, dialogue, item naming and descriptions) can be considered placeholders at this stage, that is something we will start working with with a clearer mind for the Steam Early Access.

Speaking of which, RWR Steam Early Access release should soonish follow the release of the demo, the biggest time sink being the promotional video. The last ones are starting to look dated by now so we've got to step up in that department as well.

The multiplayer is so damn fun, too bad it's not easy to find some players yet, but IF, then it's awesome ! I can't wait for a bigger community, more vehicles and even more maps! This game is worth every cent (and probably much more) =)

M72-LAW has made it to the game after 0.67, and the demo didn't have PKM. The full beta enables you to use mortar strikes too when you reach rank 4.

For more weapons, you could also give the mods a chance, check them out here: Modulaatio.com

Other than weapons, there are now jeeps and mobile spawn trucks. The AI doesn't drive quite yet, but it will soon!

I have some questions: Is there a list of what weapons are available in RWR?
Actually how does the supply crates work? What is the spawn chances of the different weapons and does these change from map to map?

you may check this tutorial for the weapons and crates on the official RWR forum: Modulaatio.com (hasn't been update yet for the last version (0.71) but for what you are looking for it hasn't changed).
For the weapon commoness you can find it in your folder Running with rifles\media\models\weapon_specifications.xml .
The less common weapon is the Sniper weapon (M2A2)
The next less common weapon is the PKM (x2) then the Mossberg shotgun, the MP5 and the M230 (x3.3). Then the AK47, G36 and LAW (x13).
And no, it doesn't change from map to map.

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.
