After-Hourz.com Development Team presents the final release version of Barbarossa! Update your servers now! This final package features a variety of visual and play enhancements highlighted by the addition of the famed T34 Medium tank, a fully working mortar and Pak guns that can be destroyed and respawned. The addition of the T34 and mortar will further enhance the 'Barbarossa experience.' The destructible Pak guns will totally change your strategies! Join up now! Update your files with the lastest battlefield and vehicle package.
The Blitzkrieg has begun! The men and machines of Panzer Group 2 are racing across Western Russia. Minsk has fallen, hundreds of thousands of troops and vehicles have been destroyed, captured, and dispresed across forests, swamps and fields along 1,000 miles of front. The Russian Army has turned to fight, once again, now digging in and preparing positions along the Berezina River, east of Minsk on the road to Smolensk and eventually, Moscow. Can the broken infantry and armor regiments of the 4th Army pull together a solid defense? Can they stop the Panzers here, at the Berezina? Can you take on the challenge to Shatter the regrouping defense and be the first Panzer over the Berezina? Is it you who can be the KV-1 Commander to single-handedly stop and destroy multiple Panzers on the fields before the river?
Take part now in the single greatest adventure in Call of Duty Multiplayer - take part in Barbarossa!I would like to publicly thank Innocent Bystander and Lex for all of their long hours of work and support over the last 8 months of this projects development. Without their assistance, friendship and occassional nagging, it would be just a big map and not what it has become. Thanks also to Jakl for many impressive graphic elements; to Glitch for his scripted sky; and to the AHz community for encouragement and countless hours of testing. This is a true community project.[/font]
=== *BARBAROSSA FINAL FOR UNITED OFFENSIVE* === === Multi-Player JUNE 18, 2005 === This map supports: CNQ - Conquest BAS CTF TDM S&D BEL DM - Death Match is NOT supported in this version HQ - Headquarters is NOT supported in this version RE - Retrival is NOT supported in this version DOM - Domination is NOT supported in this version Additional gametypes WILL be supported in following releases. Players: Any number. Recommend 4-48. ========================================================= DEVELOPER STATEMENT: ========================================================= VERSION FINAL: *** UPDATE OF _BETA 2 FILES *** DELETE BOTH THE MP_UO_BARBAROSSA_BETA2 PK3 AND THE ZZZ_AHZ_BARB_VEHICLES_BETA2 PK3 IT IS VITAL THAT YOU REMOVE BETA1 AND BETA2 FILES!! *** VITAL INFORMATION **** * Max_Gamestate_Chars: * This error has not occured in repeated testing of the map. Servers may experience this error if running one or more mods. It is suggested that IF this error occurs, remove one mod at a time until the map will load and complete a rotation. * IF Max_Gamestate error occurs, it will most likely be in BAS mode. BAS requires far more data size resources than CTF or CNQ. IF your server experiences this error. Please report it to email@example.com * Max_Gamestate_Chars is a limit of 30,000 bytes instituted by IW/GMI. The server can only load this limit of data per gametype. This includes ALL scripts for the map, EFX, Vehicles, and ALL models. Mods and other 'enhancements' contribute to this load. Each player joining contributes. Many custom maps and projects are running into this limit. The only suggestion is too remove some or all mods that may add data size. * One of the most effective methods to combat this is to reduce the total number of pk3s your server loads, as the filenames themselves add to gamestate size. Many times combining server side mods, and removing mods or maps that aren't used any more will solve the gamestate crash problems. === VEHICLE NOTES FINAL: - Vehicles included in Beta1 and 2: Pz III, Pz IV, Stug III, BT-7, BA-10, and KV-1 tanks. Pak40 and Pak45. - Vehicles ADDED to Beta2: SdKfz and Gaz AA truck - Vehicles ADDED to FINAL: T34 Russian tank, 50mm mortar. ========================================================= INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ========================================================= INSTALLATION: Place mp_uo_barbarossa.pk3 in your Call of Duty/UO directory z_ahz_vehicles.pk3 in your Call of Duty/UO directory Remove mp_uo_barbarossa_beta1.pk3 zzz_ahz_vehicle_pack1_beta1.pk3 mp_uo_barbarossa_beta2.pk3 zzz_ahz_vehicle_pack1_beta2.pk3 SERVER ADMINS: While it will run and play well in other gametypes, this map is built and tuned to run best using the Conquest TDM (CNQ) gametype.
