The long-awaited PRM realism version 4.0 is now here. Most of you know what it does, but if not, check out the Read Me, or join a PRM server.
Note: The mod is server-side, so to connect to a server with PRM, the client needs nothing.
**************************PRM_Ver_4.0************************** FOR CALL OF DUTY 1.4 ONLY *************************************************************** Introduction ============ This mod was started by me, PoolMaster, and was mainly designed for use on the [1stSF/17SS] Tactical Realism Server. Because of the popularity, I decided to release it and allow other servers to use it. Now what is "tactical realism" you might ask? Tactial realism in a game is trying to come as close to real-life as possible. Since this game is based off of WWII, this mod tries to create a realistic effect from that time. Tactics is the military science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy, especially the technique of deploying and directing troops, ships, and aircraft through effective maneuvers against an enemy, which basically means you hold positions (camping) and move as a squad and work as a team. This mod tries to further the gameplay for these serious tactical realism players like myself. -PoolMaster Here we are in the fifth major release of PRM and I haven't yet properly introduced myself. I'm Wolfsbane, the main developer of PRM. This is my first mod for any game, and it's been a terrific learning experience so far. PoolMaster got me started while getting this mod off the ground and I thank him for it. I'm still learning, and I've had a ton of help along the way, but there's still a lot to learn and I'm eager for it. This mod is not the work of one or two individuals. There are many people who had a hand in creating this mod, providing valuable suggestions and sharing their own vision of what realism is all about. The mod is also a collection of other mods that support what we are trying to do, enhancing the features that we created ourselves and providing some great additional content. Some of my work is also based on existing mods, partly due to my learning of the code and partly because the mod it's based on is so ideally suited to our needs. In any event, the mod is bigger than PoolMaster or myself could have done on our own and all we can say is thanks to the tactical and modding communities for all the support they've given us. PRM is made to appeal to those players who want something more out of Call of Duty than run-and-gun rambo-style gameplay. Every feature in this mod is designed to increase realism, promote tactical gameplay, or make running a server easier for the admins. It is a constant work in progress, we are always trying to push the boundaries and improve the game even further. We hope you like what's been done so far, but there is certainly more to come. -Wolfsbane Table of Contents ================= 1. Installation 1.1 Changes since PRM Ver 3.6 1.2 Custom Gametype Files Explained 2. Settings 3. Detailed Description of Settings 4. Previous Updates Information 5. Credits 6. Contact Information 1. Installation =============== To install the mod, simply place the PRM_Ver_4.0.pk3 file in the /main folder on your server In order to execute the config file, you will need to do ONE of the following: - name your config file default_mp.cfg - name your config file autoexec.cfg - add the following line to the end of config_mp.cfg: exec <your config file name> Put EITHER prm_normal_weapons.pk3 OR prm_realism_weapons.pk3 in your /main folder. Normal weapons is the settings that we've created for PRM. Realism weapons are those weapon settings reworked again by Koenig, RedMercury and W.Irving at IWNation for more realism. They are a big improvement for realism but greatly reduce the speed of the game and therefore may not be suitable for all servers. 1.1 Changes Since PRM Ver 3.6 ============================= - Total rework of PRM for improved performance - Injury sounds when a player is hit or killed and while player is bleeding - Total obituary control - Message displayed when you are killed informs of who killed you, what weapon they used, where you were hit and how far away you were shot from in yards and meters, no decimals - Anti-TK mod, either grounds or kills the TKing player - Clan match improved (easier to use) - Rifles can now be limited - Removed bunnykiller mod in favor of better Anti-TK mod - No respawn with captured weapons - New message system with up to 10 messages instead of 5 - All weapons reworked for accuracy, and moving with your weapon greatly reduces the accuracy - Weapon settings are now separate files and have two choices - Spectators can free look - Unknown Soldiers asked to change their name automatically - Critical health level or significant damage to legs will force player prone - Ability to turn off tracer fire - Delay between weapon changes - Mortar explosions 2. Settings =========== There are dozens of settings for PRM 4.0 which is why we recommend using a config file to set up your server. Here is the complete list and a brief description. The following section will provide a detailed explanation of their use and functions. To change a setting, the cvar must be preceded by "set". Here are some guidelines to remember while reading through the list: <#> <== This refers to a client's ID number, or slot number on the server. For example, 3 would refer to client #3. "#" <== Whatever number you provide will become the value of the setting. For example, 9 would set the value to 9. "abc" <== Whatever you type will become the setting's value. For example, "[1stSF]" would set the value to [1stSF]. "1" <== These settings are turned on with a "1" and turned off with a "0".

Detailed Setting Descriptions ================================ General Settings ---------------- prm_dropHealthpacks - This setting will allow healthpacks to be dropped on the DM or TDM gametypes. Otherwise no healthpacks will be dropped. prm_no_crosshairs - This setting will turn off the crosshair of anyone connecting to your server. If the player tries to turn the crosshair back on after they have connected, it will turn if off again almost immediately. prm_no_crosshair_names - This setting will turn off crosshair names of anyone connecting to your server. Crosshair names are the names of your teammates, normally seen when you pass your crosshair over them. This allows you to determine friend from foe, but is not realistic. Turning the names off increases the experience of realism but also increases the likelihood of shooting a teammate! prm_noUnknownSoldiers - "Unknown Soldier" is the default name for Call of Duty. Because of this, it is possible to have multiple "Unknown Soldiers" playing on your server. As an admin, this creates some problems. In order to assist admins, this setting will display a message on any player's screen with the name "Unknown Soldier" to change their name before the start of the next round. Realistic Damage Settings ------------------------- prm_bleeding - This is a sophisticated bleeding mod. How much you bleed depends on where you were hit and how much damage was dealt to you. It is possible, even likely, that you will bleed to death if the wound is serious enough. Head and neck wounds are almost certainly fatal, while arm and leg wounds will likely stop bleeding on their own. The amount of bleeding is also randomized to a degree, providing a more realistic feeling. There is no way to stop the bleeding at this time. prm_bleedingSounds - As long as a player bleeds, they will occassionally moan and grunt in pain. prm_hitKnockdown - When a player is hit anywhere except the hand or arm, they will be knocked prone. The player can get up right away and scramble for cover. prm_injury_sounds - When a player is hit or killed, they will cry out. Other players will be able to hear this. prm_dropOnHandHit - When a player is shot in the hand or weapon, they will drop their weapon. Shooting a teammate will not cause the weapon to drop to prevent abuse of this feature. prm_dropOnArmHit - Same as prm_dropOnHandHit except arm hits will also cause the weapon to be dropped. prm_damageDropOff - Each weapon is given an effective range. The further the bullet travels, the more the damage is reduced. Most maps will not affect rifles, light machine-guns or sniper rifles very much, but pistols and sub-machine guns will have a noticable difference. prm_criticalInjuries - When a player's health is reduced to below 10, the player is forced prone and cannot get back up. A message displays on the player's screen informing them they are critically wounded and how to kill themselves if they choose to do so. prm_criticalHealthLevel - This number should be set between 0 and 10. If a player's health drops below this value, the player will be affected by critical injuries (prm_criticalInjuries must be on, of course). Weapon Limiter -------------- All of these settings determine how many of each weapon type are allowed by each team on the server. If the total number of weapons for a team is too low, once all the weapons have been chosen no more players will be able to join that team. The M1 Carbine is considered a rifle, while the PPSH is considered a sub-machine gun (SMG). The limiter is based on which weapon is chosen from the menu, not which weapon is actually held by the player. Weapon Settings --------------- prm_noDropSniper - With the weapon limiter, if sniper rifles are limited but players were to drop them when they die, it would be possible to have more sniper rifles in play than the limiter intended. This setting prevents killed snipers from dropping their weapons. prm_noSniperRespawn - If sniper rifles are allowed to be dropped but you still want to limit the amount of sniper rifles in play, this setting will allow sniper rifles to be captured but they will not respawn with the player. Only the players that chose sniper rifles from the menu will spawn with a sniper rifle. prm_noCapturedWeapons - Similar to prm_noSniperRespawn, this setting prevents respawning with any captured weapon, even a weapon from a teammate. Players spawn with the weapons they selected from the menu. prm_onePrimary - Limits the player to one primary weapon (rifle, MG, sniper rifle, etc.). If another primary weapon is picked up, the one being carried is dropped. prm_weaponCycleDelay - This creates a delay between weapon changes. The first weapon can be changed quickly, then there is a delay before the player can change to another weapon. The recommended setting is 2500. 10000 will cause a significant delay, around 20 or 30 seconds. This is a client cvar, when the player disconnects it is reset to normal. prm_no_tracers - Turns off tracers for all players. When the player disconnects, this value is reset to normal. Ammo Settings ------------- Each weapon has a base amount of ammo. On top of that base amount, these settings allow additional clips of ammo to be allocated. These settings are in clips. For example, setting a cvar to 4 would provide 4 additional clips of ammo for that particular weapon. That amount is also randomized, so the player will receive between 1 and 4 additional clips. The base amounts are as follows: - M1 Carbine = 3 clips (45 rounds) - M1 Garand = 3 clips (24 rounds) - Enfield = 3 clips (30 rounds) - Mosin Nagant = 4 clips (20 rounds) - Kar98k = 4 clips (20 rounds) - Thompson = 3 clips (90 rounds) - Sten = 3 clips (96 rounds) - MP40 = 3 clips (96 rounds) - PPSH = 2 clips (142 rounds) - BAR = 4 clips (80 rounds) - Bren = 3 clips (90 rounds) - MP44 = 3 clips (90 rounds) - Springfield = 4 clips (20 rounds) - Mosin Nagant Sniper = 4 clips (20 rounds) - Kar98K Sniper = 4 clips (20 rounds) Grenade Loadouts ---------------- All weapons have at least a chance of starting with 1 grenade. Additional grenades are allocated by these settings. prm_rifle_nades - additional grenades riflemen start with prm_mg_nades - additional grenades MG and SMG users start with prm_sniper_nades - additional grenades snipers start with Clan Settings ------------- prm_clanTags - Whatever this cvar is set to, the start of each player's name will be compared to it. It is a character-by- character comparison, case sensitive. Color coding is ignored. To set this value, place what you type in quotes. To clear this value, use "" (no space in between). prm_clanTeam - Set with "allies" or "axis". Non-clanmembers will have to choose the other team. Clan members may choose whatever side they wish. Clear this cvar by using "" (no space). prm_clanVote - When voting is turned on, this setting will allow only clanmembers to initiate a vote. It will still take a majority to have the vote pass. No Team-Killing --------------- prm_tk_limit - The amount of team-kills allowed before the player is reprimanded. This number is reset every round. prm_enforce_tk - Once a team-killer reaches the TK limit, they will be forced prone and drop their weapon. They will not be able to pick themselves up and any weapon they pick up will immediately drop again. If they survive the round, they will be free to move again the following round. This is also known as grounding. prm_kill_tk - Instead of grounding a player, once the TK limit is reached the player is killed. prm_stopTK - Any player can be manually grounded using this cvar. prm_freeTK - Any grounded player may have their grounding removed with this cvar. Obituaries ---------- prm_no_obits - Turns off the obituary messages when one player kills another or kills himself. prm_tk_obits - If a player kills a teammate, the obituary is displayed even if all other obituaries are turned off. prm_display_killer - A killed player receives a message informing them of the name of their killer, what weapon was used, where the killing shot hit them, and how far away their killer was in yards and meters. Server Messages --------------- These messages appear above the compass and remain on screen for five seconds. The messages can be anything you like. Tiny's Shellshock ----------------- This is the shellshock effect from the single player game, set to various situations such as being bashed or being in the blast radius of a grenade. CIA's BAM Mortar Mod -------------------- Adds mortar explosions during gameplay. The mortars target a random player but are not overly accurate. Best bet is to run when you hear the whistling of mortars falling, they remain targeted at the same area for the entire salvo. 4.

When PRM was first created by PoolMaster, he had help from various sources. Somewhere along the way, those settings were added to the mod either by him or someone else. It was not realized at the time and as such we did not give credit to the great work that Crow King's development team poured into those settings. This was a serious error on our part, and we are doing everything we can to make amends. The weapon settings have been removed and replaced with stock settings from the patch, then adjusted for damage, range and ammo. Accuracy is still stock, but we are working on it and will have new settings for the next full release of PRM. Crow King has done tremendous work in the modding community, and has done so for years. We have always held the highest regard for his accomplishments. Should anyone take issue with how PRM got started, we recommend using the CKR mod as an alternative realism mod. -Wolfsbane and PoolMaster
