Hello everyone! It's been a while, but as promised, I'm releasing RealRTCW 2.2 this year.
I) How to install this mod?
1. You need to own legit RTCW copy. This mod is working perfectly with Steam and GOG versions. If you have CD version you need to patch it to the latest 1.41 version.
2. Download core mod archive and unzip it somewhere.
3. Copy "z_realrtcw.pk3" file into your "Main" RTCW directory. This is core mod content file.
4.Choose either x64 or x86 executables and dlls. Copy content of "x86" or "x64" folder into your root rtcw folder.
This is how your folders should look like:
ROOT RTCW folder:
RTCW "Main" folder:
5. Launch the game from either "RealRTCW.x86.exe" or "RealRTCW.x86_64.exe".
II) Help! I got strange error "BG_Index x for string: unknown token 'tt33: (models/players/bj2/wolfanim.script, line 9)".
You launcing wrong .exe (WolfSP.exe). Launch mod from its own RealRTCW exe file.
III) Resolution is looking stretched. FOV is too close. Game is in windowed mode.
Launch the game, go to "Options"------> "System" ------>"Graphics". After that set your resolution to Auto, it will automatically set your Native resolution.
Also you need to set "Fixed aspect" option to either widescreen or 4:3 depending on your aspect ratio. Widescreen is set by default.
If your game is launching in windowed mode simply set "Fullscreen" to yes.
IV) When I pickup grenades I have dynamite icon, but I can't select it.
I am aware of this phantom dynamite icon bug. Just ignore it.
V) "Copy Console log to clipboard" crash on startup.
Something wrong with your RTCW version - its either not legit or not patched. If error still persists try to uninstall everything related to RTCW and install it again.
-Overhauled difficulty system to satisfy both new and experienced players. Your maximum health and ammo capacity depends on the difficulty level. Enemies accuracy,health and reaction time depends on it as well. In vanilla game all this stuff was the same for every difficulty level.
It looks something like this now:
Easy - Full health, increased ammo capacity, increased pickups values, low AI accuracy, low AI health
Medium - Full health, standard ammo capacity, standard pickups values, medium AI accuracy, medium AI health
Hard - 3/4 health, lowered ammo capacity, low pickups values, increased AI accuracy, medium AI health
Death Incarnate - 1/2 health, low ammo capacity, low pickups values, insane AI accuracy, increased AI health
Also some balance tweaks were done:
Pistols fire rate increased
G43 and M1_Garand damage increased
Sprint speed increased
MP40 fire rate decreased
PPSH fire rate increased
MP34 mag increased to 32, fire rate increased
FG42 zoom increased
Mauser rifle damage decreased for AI
AI cant do headshot on player now
Armor protection value slightly increased
Gib health increased to avoid silly gibbing
-Reworked UI. Old interface was fine, but not very comfortable. Me and AidenDemon did some tweaks to make it shine. Loadscreen were redone from scratch by AidenDemon. UI is fully compatible with both widescreens and 4:3 ratios.
-New weapon textures
As I mentioned before, I was able to get in touch with professional texture artist. I asked him to improve some of the RealRTCW weapon textures. Some of them were simply upscaled and improved, and some of them were done from scratch. Here is some screenshots:
-Renderer2 is fully compatible with RealRTCW now. You can use new iortcw renderer with RealRTCW. All crashes were fixed. All screenshots were taken with the new renderer. Renderer specific CVARS were added in the main menu.
-New Brass effect ported from Enemy Territory. Shells vectors were changed, shells ground impact sounds added.
-New weapons - reworked M97 Shotgun and Revolver. M97 got a new model and custom set of animations to fit the unique reloading mechanic.
You can read readme for the full changelog!
