Report article RSS Feed Beta 2.5 released.

Client and server files are ready, hope you enjoy it!

Posted by R_Yell on Mar 12th, 2009

This is a very important milestone for us. Check the full changelog here and you'll understand why. Here are some highlights:

- cooperative/singleplayer mode: 1 to 8 players and 4 different missions
- Winchester 1893 pump shotgun added, some weapon animations highly improved. Rock salt shells added.
- New damage model, revolvers fire and reload faster, rifles are harder to use in close range
- New team vs maps: fof_loothill and fof_canyonland
- Kill the boss mode added: both teams have a NPC boss to protect, the first team killing the enemy one wins.
- Higher player speed, some movement restrictions removed, special dodge jump skill added
- Fistful of Dollars, our main multiplayer mode, is faster, more dynamic.
- New notoriety system: players start every round with a base amount + extra depending how good they did in previous round.
- Deathmatch bots!

Damn, I was hoping on this mod. Finily i gonna get a taste of the old westen.Relive the classic movies, With Classic shot outs and exiting gun battles......Damn i was wrong its just another running and gunning
mod. I was hoping that you guys in some time would degrase mowement speed and give the wepons a better balance to create a more
spagethi westen feeling in the game. But unfortenly you did the opposit. right now in my oppinion this game looks just like another cs copy in a different time area. And i think thats why i its so small number of players ho play the mod. Its a shame. Any way i think you guys have done i great job and i rather play this than cs.

GOOD LUCK!!

You even didn't played it yet... Anyway I think your comment is too biased and full of ignorance, how can you call this mod a cs clone? Slower movement speed?? Show us some respect and stop trolling.

This mod is very well done and extremely fun. It's got great creative game play modes, completely different purchase system based on different events. It's nowhere close to CS, that was an ignorant comment. The quality of the mod is superb and a lot of hard work was put into making it. Stop talking, and yes I see your attempted recovery post and still I don't care.

Yeh, A very strong opinion it was, all I know is ALOT of work has gone into this mod, and I believe its one of the highest quality hl2 mods out at the moment, and (in my opinion) deserves steam content release :)

Really bad that your comment got negative karma 73-Persson =/
You just sayd what you thought and it was just plain old criticism.
I think this mod is really great, it feels little like css but still its so much more. I give this mod 8.6 rating^^
Really nice maps, cool way of winning the game and an awesome weapon arsenal.

73-perrson makes a good point though, the game is more about run and gun then taking cover and taking them out. A spagetti western game IMO just isnt possible on a PC, for a true western I think you need to limit how fast and how well you can aim. Im thinking Killzone 2 gameplay mechanics with less health.

Howdy r_yell!! Maybe it was a little unfair to say that Fistful of frags
are a cs clone.The only thing i meant with that comment is just The
high speed you can run and walk with your caracter.And when i say
"its a shame" I mean its a shame that there is så small number of players. This mod deserve more players than wat it get(sometimes its hard to find a disent server to play on). And it seems to me that you didnt read the hall coment i posted, otherwise i dont know what you mean
with ignorent and dis respect. Because if you had, you must have seen that i give you guys credit for your great job so far and that i wish you good luck. If that isnt respect enough i dont know what you are after to be satisfied. Bye the way i HAVE been playing all your realeses
from the very beginning.And i gonna keep playing it from time to time.
Next time you here from me m8 i coming for you with a colt 45. YYihhaa

I kinda lost interest in fof a long time ago, but played the first ever public beta and was hooked then.
Might give 2.5 a try, but atm am hooked on One Must Fall 2097(old but kickass DOS game from my youth :D)

also btw, I think co-op to this was a GREAT idea, the guy who said it's like CS is a retard, CS doesn't have co-op nor this amount of kickass stuff.

I just played this and it's now my favourite source mod. It used to be one of the source mods I really disliked, but now with the faster gameplay and new coop gamemodes, it's just so much fun.

I'll surely vote for you in the next moty.
