The goal of Resistance and Liberation is to realistically portray the events and actions taken by the 82nd Airborne during their stay in Normandy. Our initial release will follow the regiments through a campaign that mimics that followed by the men themselves. The campaign will begin with players dropping into Normandy in the early hours of June 6th, with the ultimate objective of capturing the town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise. From there subsiquent maps will include missions based on other key areas after the D-Day.

...or the holy night in Ste. Mere Eglise.

German NCO (Feldwebel) Germans defending Para troopers on a field

We've been delaying that patch for way too long, so as a Christmas present to you and us, we decided to finally get it out. With this patch you will get two new maps and two new weapons; one MG per team. This is the last Alpha Patch build on the old EP1 code base.

Release Notes & Known Issues:

MGs:

  • MG42 Skin is a placeholder. We finally found a new texture artist, but there's no reason to hold this release back for a single texture.
  • MG Sounds are about to be redone aswell.
  • We are aware, that the bullet chains do not reflect the actual bullets left and do stay, even if you're out of ammo.

New Maps:

  • Ardennes is a small map suitable for lower player numbers made by our new Mapper Til "Albatros" Sichel, who's already working on his next map for RnL.
  • Ste. Mere Eglise is the oldest and biggest RnL map incorporating all the problems it brings. Due to it's size and open layout it might fail big time, but with all the work and effort it took, we feel it's worth the risk.
  • From all our maps this is the one with the highest grade of realism, without teamwork on both sides it just wont work and we are just as excited as you are to finally see it in action.

  • St. Come Du Mont and Ste. Marie Du Mont were both updated according to your comments and suggestions.

Bugfixes:

  • Autobolting is now optional
  • Bayonet sounds and impacts
  • Mortars now do damage
  • NCO map tweaked
  • Smoke nade exploit fixed
  • Black screen bug fixed
  • Default ticket count increased from 100 to 150
  • Ragdoll count decreased
  • Early fading of static props removed
  • A lot of minor fixes

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the whole Blackened Interactive Team!


We also encourage you to download the custom map rnl_adenau, a very nice looking urban style map made by Huri. With Eglise, Ardennes and Adenau you'll have three new urban style maps for some intense fire fights with the MGs.
Adenau is 1 file only with all resources zipped up, so the server owners among you won't have any issues distributing it.

Lovin' it.

Don't know what NullSoldier was talking about with Ninjaing something. I've been without a connection for a while (and will continue to be without one; this is just a temporary fix) and I was like "WHOAH WTF" when I booted up Alpha 2 and wasn't allowed to join any servers.

So I checked ModDb and saw Alpha 3!!!!!

=D

There seems to be TOO much Saturation in the look of the mod, either tone down the HDR or just clean it up. Other than that RnL is a solid WWII shooter.

From what I experienced, it felt like Red Orchestra scaled down to a much smaller scale. Hopefully the team answers my only gripe about their project!

No iron sights? How the hell am I supposed to aim? Also, the weapons are WAY too close to the actor's face. Otherwise, awesome mod!

If you can't join any servers you're going to put the contents of RnLa3v2.zip into the mod directory:
