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!

Hey, congrats on getting Greenlit, this game really deserves the larger audience of Steam. Will people who bought it on Desura get Steam keys? I know not all developers decide to do that, and that's fine.

even 15 bucks wouldn't be too much in my opinion if you consider the replay value, the multiplayer fun and all the stuff that will still be done until the final version.

Mostly there are 10ish dedicated servers up, a few in US East Coast, UK, Germany, Finland, and from time to time unorganized 6-10-player matches tend to emerge, the much I've been following it with Serverlist.modulaatio.com

The organized get-together events usually reach about 20 simultaneous players for about 2 hours.

A handful of people seem to be using this tool Modulaatio.com to track these matches, so they know when to be there.

so are there still alot of AI players in these matches? i imagine its not just 3 vs 3 with 20 AI on each team....

Yea, all servers have plenty of AI as well unless configured otherwise. Invasion servers force players to play on the same faction, while other servers allow PvP.

We tried nearly botless PvP in a 20-player match, it's pretty tight stuff. Just a handful of bots were there to help with temporary unbalanced teams. Would be great to have these up constantly.

I have been kinda lazy with buying this game lately but i am probably getting it this week, but before i buy it i wanted to know 2 things, 1. how does the stealth system work? do i crawl behind him and he detects me instantly or can i sneak up and melee him? and 2. i saw the Stealth trailer and there were only 2 guys in the beginning....is that something you can set where it is only you and your buddy?

1. When the area is not under alert, the AI will basically detect you only if you approach him from front or from sides, so yes, you can sneak up and stab him from behind.

You also lower your detectability by walking, being still, crouching and going prone; the more you trade off agility and movement, the harder it is to detect you. This affects the AI's range and sector of sight in relation to you, which is also affected by the time of day.

2. While we had the server specifically configured for the mission you see in the video, it could've happened in the usual gameplay too. You can, and many times should, attack the other bases by yourself or with your coop buddies while your AI is fighting at the main attack target.

Also it's these non-alerted bases where you tend to find the comms truck or the cargo truck. Destroying the comms truck disables the enemy's commander AI and reduces soldier capacity temporarily, stealing the cargo truck and taking it safely to your armory gives you a hefty resource point reward.

Anyway, yes, it is possible to set it up so that you practically have no AI in your faction by a simple mod. There's also this game mod(e) discussion on the forum Modulaatio.com , shame no one has yet made an attempt to set it up.

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.
