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!

Having fun on this game... however, there's always a "however" :) I haven't found a single multiplayer game going on. When I activate server in hopes of someone joining, I have the port forwarded as well. Is something wrong with MP currently? Also, is there a dedicated server option that we can run?

Apart from the upcoming dedicated servers, usually there has been at least one game server hosting in Finland mostly 24/7. Currently it's offline as I've been away from "the office" (read: home) for the past 6 days. The server will be online again in two day's time.

Other than that, MP is functional, but the matches are pretty much based on organizing them in IRC Webchat.quakenet.org to make sure people are playing at the same time. Another choice is to try getting your friends to play the game ;)

Oh great! I can't wait to get some multiplayer action going on this game. I've been playing it a lot in single player lately.

the dedicated server is under heavy development and is the next big task to be implemented.
Once this is done, expect way more player to play online. This may take a few weeks though.

Try to be patient a bit, the 0.70 just came out... ;)
There hasn't been plans for the release of 0.71 yet. It's most likely done when it's done :p

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.
