Project Remaster is a BF2142 modification which adds new HD environment textures, weapon animations, full offline support and many other elements.
I would like to say this project inspired me to play bf2142 again and its amazing but it was missing the ability to make a server so other players could connect. so I decided to mod it. I made a new background mainly so I could tell what mod I was testing. I can make more custom kit with different weapons let me know.
change log / release notes
I re-indexed all weapons by hand so they will work online
Changed: itemIndex and guiIndex and set them to BF2142 defaults.
Note: If I missed one let me know I will fix it.
Fixed the weapons kit so you can swap out weapons online also made 2 different kits just rename them to use.
Kit 1: Is the default BF2142 weapons loadout.
Kit 2:The Motion Ball Grenade It replaces frag grenade for recon class (both PAC and EU kits)
Note: I use kit 2 as default.
reworked the ServerArchives.con and the ClientArchives.con changed loading order of zip files.
I have notice less crashes and graphics glitches. added Roads_client2 and Roads_client3 to the ClientArchives.con
Fixed a few menu buttons and windows that had old images.
Now Project Remaster is multiplayer so you can rank online or host a sexy LAN server.
made project remaster ico. (converted the current png) so you can have a proper shortcut icon for the desktop.
made a new menu background tried to make it poster style I hope you enjoy it if not you can always rename the Old_bg_Menu_client.zip to Menu_client.zip to get the old background back.
I Enabled the movies and set the force watch to 0 now you can press ESC key to skip them also fixes the alt+tab game lockup at least for me it did.
note: you will need to press the ESC key for each of the movies.
Changed the menu music to (BF2142_Wake_Rock_Theme_TWEAKED) I edided the audio a little bit.I did not change the bf2142_menu_music.ogg located in the sound zip file.
note: if you want to hear the default Project Remaster menu music just rename the MenuMusic.ogg in the music folder.
changed the cursors to bf2142 default ones I did not edit the cursors in the menu_client.zip I just created a menu folder and placed the bf2142 cursors in it so it will override the zip.
fixed the PR_Make_Shortcut.bat located in the shortcut folder.
Run the PR_Make_Shortcut.bat file located in the shortcut folder if nothing happens right click the bat file and run it as administrator.
I put the pr exeacuteables in the shortcut backup zip file to keep norton from going crazy.
this mod version is ment to be run with the BF2142.exe I have not tried it with the BF2142_PR. (my anit-virus deleted the exes)
I have also renamed this mod to Project_Remaster_MP so it will not conflict with the orginal.
Notes: if you would like the HD textures just copy paste them from the hd texture pack and play the game.
If you would like to use any of my modifications in Project Remaster feel free to do so just give me credit.
I give credit to everyone who has contributed to Project Remaster and everyone that I have used files from.
