Storyline
On a future devastated Earth, powerful, corrupt corporations control remaining technology and rule what's left of society. Pacification Squads, a brutal private police force, maintain order for the corporate syndicate. The only hope for freedom is a small group of Resistance fighters made up of gang leaders, mercenaries and ex-military operatives. As the Resistance leader you must assemble your army and travel the globe, restoring peace and sanity in a very dangerous world.

Devastation Unique Cheats

Other Tutorial

There are many cheats which change the players/characters heads.

Sebastian puts crabs on the heads of players.

Smaug replaces it with stone dragon heads.

Geek replaces the head with the "dreenk" advert mascot.

orwell replaces heads with horses pigs and rats based on the type of character.

There is also a cheat that nullifies this, those cheats are not documented anywhere it seems and there is a separated cheat which acts like loaded (here loaded is just like allammo instead), ah "postal" it was. "dopefish" is like "bigtime" in the late 1996 unreal beta demo
so it combines multiple cheats but this is for example mentioned already in gamesrader etc. Gamesradar.com

Ah apparently Gamefaqs.gamespot.com

the gamefaqs article is a little more complete.

But it doesn't mention everything still.

There was also a lobster one for the heads.

I will edit this article later once I check the game files for clarification and cheats I forgot.

EDITED: The ones I forgot were nexttune, which is useful to bind, this game has directly command bind which supplements set input. The lobster one was...now I don't remember again. I need to write things down this is terrible. Clearcheatheads resets the heads. Setheads name sets it to specific head name. Just looked up the lobster, it is "Pedro", but setheads lobster works too. Offwiththeirheads makes everyone loose their head (lol). usetheforce sets foprce on, digitaloo enables debug mode, haven't tried those two yet. hurtme and healme with amount/rate. Playogg with several things can play external ogg music...that's about it for the useful stuff realy its much more than the faq tell you though.

This is one of the best games on the Unreal Engine "2" honestly and underappreciated. It was developed as an official Unreal title, first as an expansion pack for UT (not bonus pack 5 as some people think, think of quake 3 team arena but better with a singleplayer component too eventually). Then as separate game titled Unreal: Devastation but with the cancellation by Infogrames they had to make do with third party publisher and most of the ties to the Unreal games were removed but it still can be counted as some kind of a prequel, because one level features a liandri reference and there's the bolta weapon which was obviously developed for the ut addon pack and other stuff. I agree that there are too many similar bullet weapons though and indeed lack of something like rocketlauncher but I understand why that is the case. This also did a lot of stuff that half life 2 gets the praise for even though this came more than year before. And finally since duke3d some interactivity with cameras in a shooter that's not rpg based and some other cool things like shooting pipes that burst out steam and fire hydrants.

Why are there no Mods for this awesome Game?

I mean it comes with Modding Tools.

actually im working on it. But i have completely no idea if anyone will ever come to this server, game seems to be pretty much dead and its even hard to download it. But i want to make "one-click" solution for this, with widescreen path etc...i wonder if there is any place where i could announce it when i will finish? Any "oldschool gamers" hub? Looking for advices

i have no idea where to announce it, but i think there will be people to play it, purely because some have played it some point in their lives.

But Sadly this game crashes on Windows 10. And it seems that it has no developer or fan support, rely odd since it runs on Unreal engine 2 and I had no problem with other games running on that engine.

I am able to play it on Win 10 64-bit. What i did to get it working is change my Devastation.ini file (located in documents > Devastation ).

Once you open that file you want to search for "ReduceMouseLag=True" w/o quetes and change that to False (ReduceMouseLag=False is located UNDER [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] ).

Note that you should change all instances of it to false.

Optionally you can change your render device from D3D to OpenGL.
To do that, under [Engine.Engine], search for ;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice, and remove the ; at the beggining, and add a ; at the begging of RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice.

If ;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice is not listed there, copy and paste it without the ; and add a ; at the begging of RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice .

Also, you should try running the game with and without compatibility mode and/or admin privileges. For me it works without them.

Hope this helps.

I have installed the game, updated to the latest version. The file you suggest does not exist at all on my system, and the game refuses to run, regardless of what compatability mode I put it under. My version is Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit.

The Devistation.ini file is created when you first SUCESFULLY run the program, so never gets created on my system, as the game NEVER STARTS. So, how can you edit a file, that does not exist?

You need to download a nocd file.

I;m running the latest version of Windows 10 - 64bit, and have tried running this game, but it still fails to even start. The file that you suggest does not even exist on my system. I've tried all compatability options, and nothing works at all. (Didn't even startup at all). Even patched the game to the latest version I can using the patch off this site.
