Post tutorial Report RSS A Guide to install a heavily modded Raven Shield for Single Player game

A step-by-step way to install a heavily modified, current version of Raven Shield for Single Player gaming | UPDATED AUGUST 2019

Posted by on - Basic Client Side Coding

M07 1

Many people have been asking to have a game that looks like the game I play to post my youtube videos (youtube.com/jugulator01), so i developed a simple step-by-step method.

IMPORTANT: Do this on A SECOND COPY OF THE GAME [a Retail one]. It WILL prevent you from joining regular servers.

  1. make a SECOND copy of RvS 1.6.

  2. install both expansions - athena sword and iron wrath [this last one is better installed in modern systems using the copy-paste method here :Moddb.com

  3. install the updated 2.0 patch available here: Drive.google.com

    [ drop all folders over the ones with the same name, inside the directory of the game copy you want to mod. example: the mod's 'texture' folder goes over RvS's 'texture' folder, etc. Overwrite when prompted ]

  4. Update the file "Inventory_t.utx", in the game's "textures" folder (RavenShield\textures) with this: Drive.google.com

  5. update "Open RVS" to version 1.3:

    Moddb.com


after doing this, you'll have an updated RvS 2.0 but still won't have all the single player goodies. So, to have them, you'll need:

  1. Elite Counter Terror (UPDATE - V1.27): Moddb.com

  2. and then, after all this, u'll install the latest version of Supply Drop (UPDATE - JULY 2019 version) : Moddb.com

  3. Install the patch for this Supply Drop package: Moddb.com
  4. And, finally replace both files, in Mod folder:
    SupplyDrop.mod: Drive.google.com
    RavenShield.mod: Drive.google.com

Tango AI:

  1. Install Twi's Tango AI: Moddb.com

I have tweaked this new AI for a more realistic and enjoyable experience [specially on elite difficulty]. Replace the file in the "system" folder with this one [this step is optional]: Drive.google.com

Sentinel Wolf

Goggles | UPDATED 08.05.2019 ! :

We have finally come to an official method to add the optional and, ahem, somewhat debated goggles overlay. We are now releasing V3 of the goggles, taking all the feedback into consideration. We strongly believe this is the best version ever, but you'll also have the option to use v2 if you prefer.

Download the updated GHUD_t.utx file here [paste it, overwriting the original one in "RvS\textures"]:
Drive.google.com

.Twi graciously added two console commands for them.
Ingame, type:

overlay GHUD_t.GG to use the updated v3 goggles [type just 'Overlay' to remove them]

overlay GHUD_t.GGv2 to use the earlier v2 goggles [type just 'Overlay' to remove them]

nvoverlay GHUD_t.NVG to use my custom nightvision texture overlay [type just 'nvoverlay' to remove it and use native Supply Drop one]

important: When changing goggles overlays, you may need to restart the mission for the change to take effect.

  1. you should be good to go! to make a simple test, open the game, go to options /custom game / and activate "supply drop".

open a map, equip any supply drop weapon/optics, etc

go to mission. if you can see the goggles textures after the steps above and your teammates fire single shots, u'll have it all set right.

IMPORTANT: Again, this serves ONLY for single player gaming!

Follow each individual mod's installation guide.

Keep an unmoodded 1.6 version to play online!

After doing this, the game will very much look like another game altogether. You'll also have all the 2d ironsights of RvS 2.0 too

Good luck and good shooting!

This only results in a light blue screen upon clicking Start, that is resizable based on the movement of your mouse.

Edit: Installed on a clean installation of GOLD Edition (Steam) without the AI Mod (Malleus' AI MOD). Loaded up fine.

hmmm, strange.
You shouldn't try to install malleu's mod, because Elite Counter Terror has made it obsolete [it's based on it, though].

If you did that after all the process, you may have caused a conflict.

you just have to unpack the rar file [it's similar to a zip file].
use winrar for that:
Rarlab.com

Finally, this tutorial has been updated to include the latest versions of both Supply Drop [FEB 2019] AND Elite Counter Terror [1.27].

Is there a way to enable the athena sword and iron wraith weapons?

Hmmm, well, you can use them if you turn their mods on instead of Supply Drop. Problem is that, by doing it, you'll miss all the Supply Drop goodies.
It's such a high price to pay that we didn't consider it.

Is there any way to disable the goggles hud?
I don't want stuff blocking my screen.

Open "Ravenshield.ini", in the "system" folder and check if you have the following lines, EXACTLY as below:

Paths=..\Mods\NewOperative\*.u
Paths=..\Mods\NewOperative\*.utx
Paths=..\Mods\NewOperative\*.usx
Paths=..\Mods\NewOperative\*.ukx
Paths=..\Mods\NewOperative\*.uax

If not, make the necessary corrections. Should work after this

Thanks for this! Right now I'm just trying a base RvS 2.0 run, to familiarize, but I've noticed that some weapons (Glock 19, AR10, etc) don't work, and cause the game to crash after planning. Is your link to the RvS 2.0 patch the full RvS 2.0 mod, or just a patch to the full mod? If so, do you have a working link to RvS 2.0? Other than this issue with certain weapons, everything seems fine.
