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!

Does anyone else have loads of mouse lag with this? I wasn't sure whether it was a feature but it's there on the menu too.

Did you try with and without VSync?

How's your framerate? You can press CTRL-F7 in-game to see the fps and bunch of other debug data.

You probably noticed that the camera moves a bit behind the mouse cursor movements which can take a bit time getting used to, that's a feature, but I guess that's not what you're specifically talking about here.

Thanks for the reply! Yeah, it looks like disabling vsync did it. No lag now, and framerates in excess of 30 which is more than enough for me.

It took all of 5 minutes' play before I bought the game, by the way - it's amazing fun!

an awesome addition was if you leveled up and unlocked custom classes as such and could chose weopens and secondaries

Ranking up will be used to influence which weapons you can use, how many grenades / LAWs you can carry, which vehicle seats are available to you, and things like that. While the game doesn't feature classes as such, these limitations should steer which role you are able to take in the battle.

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.
