Hi all, quick update on various things and stuff and whatnot etc.

Posted by on

For something different, I'll do a summing up at the start of the article to save those who have short attention spans from having to hey look a squirrel.

Anyway,

expect the Secret Weapons Of WWII version in the next week or so.

That is the summary of this article, but there is more stuff to talk about below.

Let us go there now:

I've basically got everything in place for it, so it is playable now BUT:

As things stand, our SW (Secret Weapons) version requires our RTR (Road To Rome) version installed.
(And the EA version of SW obviously - otherwise this would be illegal or so I believe)

  • I like it like this, as it makes it easier for me to carry certain features across the various versions of my mod.
  • But, as it requires our RTR version, it also requires the EA version of RTR installed.
  • No problem for me, nor everyone else who has the BF1942 WWII Anthology.
  • But, there are potentially some people who have SW but don't have RTR.
  • Thus I need to hear from people who have SW but do not have RTR, otherwise I'll assume that everyone is OK with having to have EA versions of RTR and SW (as well as our RTR) installed before our SW can be installed.

I also want to do a double check and make sure that the Installer is running ok for people.
(I know that one person was having trouble, but they told me about it as a 'guest' so I don't have a way of finding out if they got it resolved)

And, does anyone know where I can find a PPSH model and animations (and code would be great) that I can use?

Worse case scenario, I could teach myself the mechanics of animating 1942 stuff if I could get a hold of a model, but I really don't want to have to; I really do not have the motivation (nor the time) to learn modelling for this game.

Also, how is everyone finding the 'area affect' damage of the cannons on fighters?
(Not our RTR fighters though, I haven't touched them yet)

Also (last one), if anyone has any suggestions for tweaks they'd like to see please let me know.

Cheers,
AUS_Doug
