Hi all! We, the Back2Fronts mod team, are proudly announcing the Back2Fronts Mod for Call Of Duty 2. The mod wants to bring much more intense, realistic and full battle experience. We want to achieve this by giving the player more options and more diversity. Mod will be separated into SP and MP part and those parts will also be released separately.

Description of the main mod features that will be present in mod. It also shows a work-in-progress-meter.

Watch for updates there!

Back2Fronts will be separated into SP and MP parts and those parts will also be released separately. As already said our mod is to bring much more intense, realistic and full battle experience. From our point of view the best way to achieve this is to give the player more options and diversity. Original CoD2 has not many unique stuff. This is especially the case of characters and sounds but also textures and effects. Also limited number of weapons and vehicles was the same issue.

S I N G L E   P L A Y E R   P A R T:
We want to correct it by creating a lot of new weapons (with new models, new animations and everything around like weapon sounds or weapon effects).
The second big space for modding are sounds. We want to include a huge pallete of unique sounds so that you will not experience all the same sound looping again and again. This covers everything from weapon sounds, various "technic" ones, bullet hits, hand grenade explosions (now dependant on surface type), bullet zings (when a bullet goes really near to the player), smoke grenade puffs, artillery and other types of explosions, death and pain sounds (divided into parts for each nation), battle emitters (sounds of battle playing in the background), breathing etc. We were able to add also something new to sounds - particulary the ejected case impact - when you fire your weapon, most of the weapons eject the spent case out of weapon. Now you can hear the ejected case hitting the ground!
Another big changes are going to be in effects section. We know in the team that CoD games are really "oversmoked" which on one side may be "realistic" but it makes your computer lagging. And our mod will add quite a lot of stuff which means a lot of memory needed. So we will include a "nosmoke" addition to our mod. Also all other effects will be remade to more reasonable (but also nice!) and "smokeless" extend. This should give you extra FPS!
The next part to look at is the 2D graphics - from main and all other menus to players HUD and various icons. The CoD2's icons were not really bad but we made much better ones! We hope that they will help you get the feeling of a WWII better!
We had to rewrite some localizedstrings (game's texts), please note that the Back2Fronts will contain English text! So it will convert your CoD2 into English text! We had to do this because our mod required new texts. We want to include national localizations some time but it is not high priority, higher priority is the mod! Same case as the national localization is the censor patch for countries where Nazi symbols are prohibited (like Germany), our mod is to be realistic so it will contain Nazi symbolism to give you the "real" feeling of the era. The patch will naturaly censor these.
Finally there are scripts for everything from weaponfiles and vehiclefiles to main menu and new mod features. To weapons and vehicles - we have developed a way how to pump the CoD2 with the as realistic (and also fun) settings for weapons/vehicles as possible. So no more "run and gun"!
The new mod features will include for example random damage screens for player when he is hit. We also added a lot of new death and victory quotes (even some that were originaly censored). Probably the most interesting script stuff is sprinting feature in condition never used in CoD2.
Main menu will be heavily altered as well. The whole menu system has been visually edited to fit Back2Fronts. This includes mainly new layout, style andbackground images. Additionally we created a bunch of new menus. Back2Fronts credits menu with list of authors. Back2Fronts options menu containing switchable (on/off) options to alter gameplay like AI disply names, enable compass, enable hit direction icon etc., now with reset defaults button. Load/save game menu has been made, but is not in definitive version because of some bugs. Planned item is the Back2Fronts info menu containing mod's manual and content information.
