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.

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 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.

Hey, version 0.71 has been submitted to Desura as I'm writing. Took a bit longer than expected but we wanted to make sure no bigger bug slipped through by extending the testing period and fix some stuff.
So expect the new beta release to be live on monday/tuesday. On top of that, pasik spent most part of the last 4 weeks with work on the dedicated server which is almost done. All of this should improve the multiplayer experience by quite a bit!

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.
