Hi all! I decided that it would be shame not to show you some ingame shots of things which are ready but still considered "in progress" in general.


EDIT START

I have just received the interview answers from our team member Fainyance11 so I made a new article for his answers.

EDIT END


Models
So I took several (4) videos from the beginning of Rhine map. I took the weapons located there and presented them into these videos. You can spot: G-43, Thompson M1, Garand M1, MP-44, BAR M1918A2, Mauser Kar98k, MP-40, Luger P08, FlaK 88, Springfield M1903A4 +M82 and Mauser Kar98k + Zielvier.


Also, in the 3D render video for "Springfield M1903A4 + M82", there was an issue that the weapon in the video had front sight (which is wrong, it should not be there). It was my fault - older version of model and I didn't noticed that. But naturaly ingame it is correct - no front sight :-)

You can watch here, or use video section. Please note that at Moddb, only 1 from total 4 videos is uploaded. All 4 are on Youtube.

User's interface
Although the mod being in pre-alpha stage, the main menu is quite complete. The music seems to be final. The total lenght actually in the mod is circa 8 mins, here you can hear the first 4 mins. It contains also war emitter patterns like incomings and firefight to give the background music more serious feel and tension. Please apologize the lower quality sound in the video. On the other hand the look of the background is not final decision yet - there might be some changes.

Great, another reason to Play COD2 again! Best COD ever, but the weapon quality, especially of the Luger anoyed me in the original Game!
Keep up the good work!

MP-44 reoading animations need some work(the mag seems to "fly" into the weapon), the rest is awesomesauce.

The MP-44 reload animation is original cod2 one. I did not touch it. Maybe I will in future...
The "flying" thing maybe caused by the low framerate (29fps) video capture and sligh lagging.
