Our primary goal is to make a playable Classic Cooperative mod for the SP version of RTCW. Check out our media section to see the ingame shots. RTCW was an almost perfect game in 2001, the Cooperative mod was the only missing thing. Now we are trying to make this possible! As you can see on the ingame-shots, it's not impossible! :))))

The first step is to finish the works to play the whole campaign + some new maps in cooperative mod. You and your friends are simple soldiers who goes through BJ’s adventure.

After more than a year (time flies), there is finally a new release.
MAN-AT-ARMS has put most of his time in this new release and as usual ssf.sage managed to fix lots map bugs.
Which resulted in a stable 1.0.0 version of this awesome game.

What do we have ?
The gameplay is exactly the same as in previous release, but its stable and rock solid. So you probably think, so whats new ?
For those of you who know the Quake 3 Arena Engine mod, ioquake3, I have good news for you, all the ioquake3 features are ported to rtcwcoop.
For those of you who don’t know what’s ioquake3 is, these are the important features in a nutshell:

  • New sound code to have better sound quality
  • 64bit support
  • built-in voice-over-ip (voip), if you have a headset and the server enables the feature, you can now talk to your coop friends
  • avi video capture of demos, no more rendering thousands of tga files
  • much improved autocompletion of console commands
  • console history (it remembers the commands from your previous sessions)
  • http/ftp downloads, aka faster map downloads
  • and lots of bug and security fixes
  • A completely new (and optional) renderer, which gives you a lot more eyecandy (to enable it, type in the console: /cl_renderer rend2; vid_restart, to disable it: replace rend2 with opengl1 )

One other important change is that we’ve moved all the coop related files from ‘main’ to a folder called ‘coopmain’, this allows you to mix the stock rtcw mp and sp games with coop, you don’t have to copy all the pk3′s to a new place for coop to work.

How to install:
Unzip the downloaded file into your rtcw installation. Make sure that the ‘coopmain’ folder from the zip file is at the same level as the ‘main’ folder from your rtcw installation.
In case you only have the rtcw pk3′s but no existing installation, unzip the downloaded file, and move your rtcw pk3′s inside the ‘main’ folder.
New Cvars and ConsoleCommands ?

Hi! Yesterday we found this: On the map "City" of the new mappack second gate can be blocked by the track I believe, because they open towards the track. Hope this helps.

I'm happy to see that this mod is still alive! I can't wait 'til all major bugs are fixed so you guys can focus more on the fun aspect of the game (not saying that it's boring now though!). But it's never ending process I guess 'cause every new feature brings new problems :) I always try out every new version you put up and also looking forward to 0.9.4. It's exciting to see the progress you are making with this.

By looking at it all, it gives me the impression that most of the people enjoy group "run'n'gun frag-fest" gameplay. But it's probably common nature of standard RTCW fan as there are classic DM guns like minigun or rocket launcher in the game and the general movement of the characters is quite quick. Despite the fast-paced action of the game, I have always enjoyed more the survival-like and careful aproach to my playing (you can see from there that I'm not typical public server skiller :D) soaking all that atmosphere. That's what I was hoping for a little in the coop version, especially during LAN sessions. Although there's not as much issues as such when one gets on with the rules given.

I also want to say that last thing I intend to do is to disappoint you devs, who have resurrected again a classic (at least for just few of us) which says it all. I understand what majority of people want and like and I respect that but I never completely get rid of the wishes of features bringing, let's say, more "tactical" feel everytime I launch a new release of your mod. Maybe some day you will include some small setting like this for least of us like me or maybe you're already planning it :)

Until then huge thanks anyway!!!

By the way, I love your new site - simple but nice :)

Coop for an old classic game like RTCW???!!! Oh it gets a 10, it's got a few bugs but I'm sure they will fix these later on. A very well done mod , they should update the installer to find my Steam folder for people that bought it there they might be confused where that is in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common
