-Overhauled difficulty systemto 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
Old interface was fine, but not very comfortable. WolfETPlayer 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 he mentioned before, he was able to get in touch with professional texture artist. WolfETPlayer 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.

If core game is not enough RealRTCW 2.2 is coming along 7 custom map addons:
Thanks to Eugeny, we have new hand/foot skins in the RealRTCW 2.2. What does it mean? Well, BJ’s hands and foot appearance now depends on the map. For example on the Norway chapter you will have snow camouflage, while on the Dam chapter you will have dark camouflage for the night mission. This feauture is also implemented in the Trondheim trilogy.
New weapon textures
Also, I was able to get in touch with the professional texture artist. He is not from the mod community. Since he have a big experience in drawing textures on Unreal Engine 4 and Unity Engine, I asked him to improve some of the RealRTCW weapon textures. He is almost finished. And I want to show you some of his work:
More in-game screenshots will be uploaded later.
What’s the good news?
The good news is that RealRTCW 2.2 is going to be released in December. I’m not sure when exactly. It can be upcoming week, it can be end of December. Right now I’m testing the new version, trying to improve balance. With the new difficulty system you need to balance 4 .ai files not just one, so it’s taking some time.
What’s the bad news?
Unfortunately some of the promised content not gonna appear in RealRTCW 2.2. I’m talking about Scoped M1 Garand and P38. Why? Remember this weird bug with the dynamite icon in RealRTCW 2.1 (still persisting in 2.2)? Well, the thing is, RTCW have some weird weapon limits. So this bug appeared because I added too many weapons. When I added Scoped Garand and Revolver this bug “evolved” – Luger became two handed weapon for some reason, colt icon disappeared. So I decided to remove Scoped M1 Garand and keep the Revolver by removing Walther P38. Not sure if I’m gonna be able to resolve this issue.
Also the new difficulty system was successfully implemented in custom addons. RealRTCW 2.2 will be released along with the Trondheim Trilogy, Project51 and Pharaoh’s Curse. Stalingrad, Time Gate, Capuzzo and Hidden Wolf will be updated.
