Report article RSS Feed Beta 1.5 released!

Here comes our most complete release to date. Take a look at the video and summary to understand why you should play this mod, in case you weren't doing yet.

Posted by R_Yell on Jul 10th, 2008

Greetings FoF fans. This is our fifth update in 6 months and probably the most important one. Take a look at this HD video and the summary, that should convince you of the importance of this new beta.


New 3rd person animations: they took some time but here are finally. The word is ´immersion´, the feeling of a western shootout is much more vivid and you also know when enemy is reloading, which isn´t a bad thing either.

New maps: our rotation is growing in quantity and quality with the map fof_desperados. You may know it from CS:S and jackennils (the author) was very kind to let us use it and make some modifications as well. You´ll also enjoy fof_tramonto, bigger and better!

Railroad age is here: we introduce our moving steam train. Big thanks to Anime7Angel for his outstanding work in the locomotive and coal car. For the moment it will be mainly eye candy in our El Paso map, but soon you´ll discover new ways of playing FoF in upcoming levels.

Dynamic respawn system working as it should. This is a critical feature in our mod, if it doesn´t work adequately then game may become frustrating. The new version removes completely waiting times due occupied spawn points and also spawns you near teammates when possible. Bounty and FDM gamemodes were much more enjoyable in our testing because of that.

And much more! Translations to French, German, Spanish and Traditional Chinese (thank you all who helped!), improved in-game help, some annoying messages removed, notoriety retrieval system fully working, improved crosshair, accuracy stats and other additions to make the experience of playing FoF much more enjoyable. Please read the changelog while the update is being downloaded, there are some important fixes and many weapon tweaks as well.

I really like these updates with videos, makes it more interesting for everyone, especially for people that haven't played it yet. I am still on vacation but I will download this and play from here because I can't wait to see all the new stuff.

We had a small 1 day LAN with about 10 people earlier this week and we played some FoF then. We had a great competitive game and they all enjoyed it :).
