Post Factions of World War II
I've finally finished doing most of the necessary code for the weapons I did so far. There's some little issues, such as muzzle flashes, but I'll edit those once I get most of the weapons and actors in. Many thanks go to RR_Raptor65 for making the base actors, sprites, and sounds. Now, onto the mod.

Factions of World War II

RR_Raptor65 originally started this project. I have simply added quite a bit to the mod, including but definitely not limited to:

  • Removing mags (kinda glitchy, would like help)
  • Almost 30 more weapons
  • Respective ammo for the new weapons
  • Balanced the weapons
  • Some editing here and there

The mod will become quite extensive if we continue work at the pace I've been working. I'm hoping we can implement stationary weapons, mobile weapon emplacements, trenches, and even more weapons and factions. However, there's a limit to the amount of weapons/actors/etc we can make, so once we hit that limit, the mod is final (unless RR_Raptor65/me want to change things).

I'm hoping the mod gets some good ideas and feedback, as I've got a bit of time on my hands and would love to make this the best mod for what it's based upon. Here's a picture of most of the included weapons. The "Roma" faction weapons are not included(as that faction is fictional), nor the Winchester M1912 (I forgot about it).

Currently there is America, Germany, Russia, Italy, Britain, and Japan. Hopefully we'll have more weapons for more factions by the final version :)



Installation:

NOTE: The base.rte does not replace anything. If you wish to look inside it, there is just some things that are required for this mod to work with B22. In a later version, RR_Raptor65/me will most likely make it just one .rte. What is inside the missions.rte is an index.ini that changes the game to NOT load missions/activities.ini; Instead, the WWII mod loads it after everything else is loaded, to prevent issues with the activities that are in there. On that note, all the activities in there are for each faction; If you want to fight Germans, then rename your activities to something like "Backup Activities.ini", then rename the German Activities.ini to just Activities.ini. Replace German with whatever faction, and there you have it. If you do not wish to replace your index, just make a backup of it, extract the contents, and replace the new index.ini with your backup.

1. Extract the contents of the .7z to your Cortex Command installation directory.
2. If you wish to use any of the provided activities, refer to what I said in the note.
3. ???
4. Profit and/or play!

Hey, if you downloaded it, re-download it. I just updated, everything (including the Japanese activities) should work now. There was also a little scenes issue I had to work out that is now fixed, aswell as adding a new gun. :)

I'll get some .gifs soon (if the game won't freeze when I try)

Some of the sounds are raw (Straight from another game, like the CoD series, BiA or Red Orchestra) but most are heavily edited or brand new recordings.

We haven't managed to update the actors yet either, and for now it's just the old German, US, British and Soviet actors, no Italian or Japanese yet.

Okay, it runned really fine without the re-DL, and these are the things that kept bothering me (unless you have fixed em')
-Short reloads (even for MG's)
-Actors kinda look same to me, but as it seems, this is WIP
-Horrible reload sounds & the m79 launching voice.. Reload sounds are hard to find, but do your best
-The huge selection of guns, wich is nice, but i get lost searching for the right guns, so if
you could sort weapons into factions, like Japanese with a rising sun in the buy menu, with the actor(s?) and the guns.

So, the only thing that made me cry on the floor is the lack of über-bomber zeppelins.. but those can be made later.. right??
RIGHT??? Well yeah, keep up the good work.. im pretty sure this will turn out real nice when finished.

You're using B22, correct?

If you ask me, the sprites need touching up some. But good job on the quantity so far. I hope to see more.

Zess, null is found in Base.rte now, not Base.rte/devices. If it's there for you, you changed the location. Make the mod find null in base.rte next time

Looks like it will be alright later, and to fix that crash, make a copy of Null.bmp (found in base.rte) and put it in Base.rte/Devices.

Dodgy conversions of old mods cause this.

W11? Do you mean WWII?

This mod looks great... but I just don't see how it fits into CC.

Maybe once the engine is open enough to create full mods, a WWII one would be cool, but right now... eh.

The scale for the guns is a little off. The M1919 isn't any longer than a Garand.
