It was hard to find "the rising" mod on the internet in 2021 the web sites are gone. I found this older version (version 1) which works offline on LAN on CODWAW with some config tweaking. I am not one of the developers just a Moddb user. Hopefully you can enjoy too. 58 Mb. Only changes from release is the rising.cfg and more instructions and an optional Lanfixed exe. Version of CODWAW was 1.7.1263
I just tried to get this awesome mod running and found that the default rising.cfg had typos (a few missing 'set' prefix's and cooperative spelt wrong in map rotation). I'm not sure the correct protocol about something like this and ive never contributed to any mods in any way before.
I fixed it that so the attached rising.cfg works.
Hosting the rising v1 through the game gui does not work (you can join and see players in game but after the pre game the game will sort of freeze and yea frame rate drops to 1 per 20 seconds- you'll know about it! Something like a wrong game mode etc
To get it going on your LAN with a listen server : (VPN or in the building)
follow instructions the mod team gave: use the rising.cfg on the server.
Which are in my words:
Make sure you copy this mod folder in to BOTH mod folders -including the appdata/local/activision one which is the one that is used mostly- i know their instructions said to check the path with their tool but i kinda wrongly assumed the main mods folder was the only one!
open the game with this command:
codwawmp.exe +set fs_game "mods/mp_therisingv1" or move into the mod from the mods menu
enable console in game options
press tilde console key type exec rising.cfg press enter
type map_rotate press enter - game will start
The other players can join via the gui or type connect <ipaddress> in console
Ive also included the LAN fixed exe 1.7 Which allows for total gui usage for hosting and joining offline LAN in Campaign mode or Zombie mode in general (without it you get connection errors etc) But it is not used for this mod(i havn't tried).
