RSE v25 Development Progress Changelog




Hey so here is a little teaser for a new menu implementation to be featured in RSE v25. There are other improvements as well. I will post the full release in about a week from now because I have a lot of bug testing to do!


RSE v25 Changelog (as of 6/14/14):

- reverted back to alterRev client
- added basic in-game bot menu
- fixed a bug that prevented players from earning killstreaks in some game modes
- improved when bots decide to run towards another player to melee, fixed running backwards
- improved smoothness of bot aiming
- improved how bots track other players with radar and sound
- fixed a bug that caused bots to spin after planting a bomb
- high skill bots with sniper rifles will now wear ghillie suits
- fixed a bug that caused bots to ignore shooting down UAVs and AC130s
- bots will now stop moving if they are flashed or stunned
- bots will now stop moving to use the stinger rocket launcher
- other small bug fixes and improvements

  6. will the performance still be improved since you are using an older client?? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no the performance improvement was because of the new client. :(

    2. Aw I could finally use shadows with the new client :(

      Delete
    3. lol yea me too, on the old alterRev client i have to disable shadows to maintain 60 fps... there is something with that client, probably overhead from extra processes added for the alteriw online play causing the CPU to stress out more...

  7. Would it be possible to implement leaning? I know it detracts a bit from the main goal of the mod, after playing both Black Ops games, I can't stand it not being there. Assuming IW didn't completely rip out the function for it in their version of the engine, it shouldn't be too hard to reintroduce, right?

    1. Well Black Ops came after MW2... did World at War have leaning?

      Delete
    2. I personally don't use those leaning stuff I just strafe fast and run hehe.

      Delete
  8. Yes, World at War had leaning. So did Call of Duty 4. Sorry, the reply function doesn't work on my phone, so, i have to post it as a seperate comment.

    1. ohh ok no worries yea then it should be possible...but it would have to be incorporated into preexisting keys and this is already limited especially with the required keys used for the bot menu now...

      Delete
  9. Alright. So, it wouldn't be possible to rebind through normal means? I remember PCGamingWiki had an article on emulating keys on other keys. So, i'm going to.look that up again. Thank you.

    (located under libary=tools=mw3 dedicated server (around 15gb).

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nope no rse support yet for mw3 but their working on it at least on some sort of offline launcher first.

    Replies

  13. AlterRev didn't work with Windows 8, however the new client did. Would switching back break Win8 support?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes it would. if you can find a better client that doesn't crash please let me know.

  14. Hey mac, the bgmw3-v0.2Beta load the Personalizated names of .iwd (SkinPackmw32.iwd as example). That means, the game can load RSE??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not sure what the "SkinPackmw32.iwd" consists of...

      Delete
    2. they are probably image files that replace default ones which are loaded into the game. this is different from GSC mods...

      Delete
    3. that was a good catch though. its smart thinking like this that lets us discover new things.

      Delete
  15. Hey, mac, what program do you use to unpack & pack bops 1 .ff files?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i use the official black ops 1 modding tools to unpack and compile ff files. they were given to me by a very kind person here. you can download them from steam or check the comments of an old BO1 post on this blog and you'll find dl links to the tools.

      Delete
    2. no problem, i'm under the impression that compiling only works in Windows XP. if you are able to compile in Windows Vista or later please let me know.

      Delete
    3. Nope. I didn't get very far with them. Most of them crashed upon launch and the files also had a virus.

  16. Joe,how about dual-render scopes,as in ghosts? is it possilble to add them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yea if you feel like getting 30 fps when you zoom in... it would be very hard to do and the performance impact would be large. it would be a neat mod though...

  17. hey joe, i had some problem with the maps killhouse, nuketown and classics pack in mw2...if i installed these maps , my game would not start...it gave errors like could not load 'shadows' , could not load 'specialty new'...i heard a lot of people had this problem...do u know what the cause could be...

    1. i'm trying to figure out a way to notify the player of the controls for the menu without it being intrusive...

      Delete
    2. Put the info in the readme file. Problem solved. :P
      HUD overlays usually suck.

      Delete
    3. yea i was trying something clever that would pop up for the first 5 or so seconds of the match, but it doesn't look that good and i can't determine if it is the start of a new round or not so its just better off not being there at all...

      theres only 3 controls, frankly without instructions it would only take a few minutes to figure it out... but of course i'll add instructions and also a video on how to use it.

  19. YES! THE OLD CLIENT! I loved that one. XP bar, favela, random map, killstreaks. The bots felt like they had better hit detection also. This is gonna be fun with the old client but improved bots and menu. When will you release it?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really love this mod! Thank you for making this mod!! Btw are you still develop this mod?

    ReplyDelete
  21. are you gonna put this download on this site?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey Joe, great work on this mod! Really appreciate all the hard work.

    Also, are both DLC map packs supported with this mod? Want to make sure before I buy them off Steam Summer Sale. Thanks! =)

    1. hey thanks, no problem.

      yes DLC1 and DLC2 are supported.

    2. Awesome, thanks again!

  23. For anyone having issues with RSE/AlterRev running on Windows 8/8.1 I have a solution. You can just minimize the Windows crash prompt then proceed as normal. Ranking doesn't work but you can unlock everything by going in the MW2 game folder and navigate to stats\unlocked and copy the .stat file and paste it in the players folder. It's not perfect but it works. On a side note, I see that Redacted recently updated their client which now supports DLC4 for BO2. Thanks for the awesome mods Joe!

  25. Hey Joe. What do you think about making a mod menu for COD4 Galactic Warfare/Pezbot mod? Just a simple menu that lets you select levels and game types and maybe even fixing the bot walking animations. BTW I can't wait for RSE v25.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Indeed it would be great if you could release the next version of COD4 pezbots. Fix the walking animation, cliping out of the map. Maybe you could use the code from Black Ops bots?
