To play RTCW you need to Download these patches

If you bought RTCW and NOT RTCW GOTY Download RTCW 1.41 Full PAtch if you Bought RTCW GOTY Edition (GOTY means Game of the Year) you need to DL RTCW 1.41 Lite Patch

to Play RTCW:ET Just Download RTCW:ET its the Full Game it doesnt need Anything from RTCW to be played just Download and Install

To play RTCW WildWest (My Favorite) Download WildWest MOD from RTCWfiles.com and just install it it will place a shortcut to it on the Desktop so its Extremley Simple

Now settings to use on MP for RTCW are simple http://wolf.dehn.net/tweak.php

follow that link and it will tell you what settings to use according to your system specs all the settings listed can be changed by editing the wolfmp_config.cfg in the Main folder where RTCW is installed you open it with Wordpad and edit all the settings recommended from that link -- those tweaks work realll well

Yes. RTCW Multiplayer is just like RTCW Singleplayer, but you play against people on-line. RTCW: ET is similar to RTCW, but is free for download off the internet because the Single Player Version was cancelled. The guns in ET sound different than they do in RTCW, and so do the vsays (Chat Commands). RTCW: Wild West Mod is my favorite mod. You can click HERE to go to the Wild West mod homepage. The weapons are totally different different than the ones in ET or RTCW, and the vsays are too. Click HERE to go to RTCW Files.com where there are tons of custom multiplayer maps, mods, skins, vsays, etc... The most popular mod out there for both ET and RTCW is called "Shrub Mod". It enables players on a server to do other things that RTCW doesn't feature. Check it up on the site above and read about it. Some servers require the most recent patch, and they are available at rtcwfiles.com.

I recommend getting a DSL or Cable modem instead of a 56k modem so that you don't "Lag Out" (Slow Gameplay) on the server.

http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=7449 <--- There is 1.4 patch http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=8451 <--- There is 1.41 lite patch (reguires 1.33\1.4 version to update to 1.41) http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=14380 <--- There is RTCW:ET (free game, i recommend a try (even i dont like it so much as original RTCW)) http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=18627 <--- There is RTCW:ET 1.02 patch (the newest)

All those files are for Windows, if you have Linux, say

And comparaments (sorry, my crappy english once agains): +RTCW: Original RTCW is fun, fast and has much action usually, and if you want to kill whole enemy team alone, you need much of luck\skill, maps are good, never get boring, people who (still) playes it, knows usually how to play and etc, very good Multiplayer

-RTCW: Maybe hard for newbies, you need to know the map forwards and backwards so you dont get lost, and the gameplay might be first kinda strange and no class limits (doesnt bother so much, but if you play server that runs Shrub mod (server-side, you dont need any downloads to that), its possible to limit weapons for some class)

And if you want AI bots for game to practise, download wolfbot and waypoint pack: http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=19125 <--- Wolfbot 1.5 http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=22680 <--- Waypoint pack (download both, the Waypoint pack allows you to play more custom maps (and official)) that are "told" in readme

+RTCW:ET: Free game, new campaing system, only Yanks spawn with Tommy and Germans MP40, some new weapons, improved graphics (but once again: Graphics wont make a game), Fireteams (for clan matches), building system (engineers can build now Command posts, some objectives\structures, such emplaced MG42, or they can repair water pumps to get flanking way and etc, or repair tanks (in 2 maps you need to escort tank to someplace in order to complete one objective), has more Voice commands, Deployable MG42 (avaible at soldier, very good thing) and improved net code (not forgetting mines, they are nice addon thing, and skill system is OK), and reguires usually a lot teamplay

-RTCW:ET: Only 6 maps (!!!!), respawn-camping is very easy, mortars are usually used as "spawn-rape" weapon (shoot only to spawn place to get frag, no sense making, IF i play ET, i usually use mortar to support team, not to "spawnrape"), Rifles are inaccurate (and little bit underpowered), Covert Op class has some overuses (i once saw 8 of our 12 member team were Covert Ops), maps need to known forward and backward if you dont want to get lost, if you get all skills to full, player will becoma ├╝ber player that is unstobbable without good player against him, and some small things If you want AI players/bots to ET, here are few ones: http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=24977 <--- BoBot, they are quite good bots but supports only 3 maps for now and they have incredible reaction skill on lowest bot "skill level" (i shot once from behind and he was already turned and shooting back) http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=24485 <--- AImod 0.3, i recommend this to practise due the AImod supports all maps (but in Fuel dump, axis get stuck to depot spawn and in Railgun, axis dont know how to make objectives) and all classes, and are more newbie friendly bots (basic bots with SMG and etc, tries to get close before they start shooting) So its up to you, what bots you want (AImod and BoBots are for RTCW: ET, Wolfbot is for RTCW)

So overall: RTCW for newbies, is little bit hard, but is more balanced and has good maps ET is lot beter for newbies, but there are very much spawnrape in the game and makes it pain and suffering to play if you dont find good server (Server = place where you can play).
