Complete and Lite editions

You might noticed that RealRTCW 3.0 now comes in two editions.

Lite edition of RealRTCW 3.0 doesn't include any addons and comes only with one HD pack.
This edition was requested by some users, and I guess its fair to give a people who not interested in custom maps a way to not download stuff they not intersted in.

Complete edition includes 2 HD packs plus 35 custom maps and campaigns.
Yes, you heard that right. Addons support was expanded. I went through every addon for RTCW and adapted best of them for RealRTCW. Adaption includes custom menu, improved UI, rebalanced AI and translated briefings.

Realism difficulty overhaul

I decided to change idea of Realism difficulty level completely. As you remember, Realism restricted your ability to manually save, while capping your health at 50 HP in your fight against Death Incarnate enemies.

Now, restriction of saving was removed. Health cap was lowered to 25 HP and you still facing Death Incarnate AI. BUT health of your enemies was reduced as well(down to 10 HP for most soldiers).
So its more like oneshot game now. Everything depends on your reaction time.

Minor stuff

In terms of balance I decided to buff MG42m. It was underpowered in my opinion. Overheat values decreased. Damage increased.

Recoil effect implemented in initial RealRTCW 3.0 release now reduced for all weapons except pistols.
I just felt that I went too far with it.

Armor protection value decreased from 70% to 66% (back to vanilla values). Armor is OP.

Enjoy and have fun!

Try to reset the config by deleting RealRTCW3 folder from my documents

Reply Good karma+1 vote

I still cannot install this. Everytime I click on "realrtcwsetup" the window pops up which says: Runtime Error (at 1:212): Internal error: Cannot access 64-bit registry keys on this version of Windows.

Guess I will stick with mod 2.2

After the first mission in "The start" addon, I get this error: "Can't find map maps/intrusion.bsp", anyone know how to fix this ?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Единственный минус - сохранение прогресса в другие папки. Придется запускать через bat, сохраняя и восстанавливая папку с прогрессом...

Это стандарт для многих игр. Зайди в папку My Games в тех же документах. Придешь в шок.
