5.56mm FMJ BETA 0.44 RELEASED !!! (fully 1.3 compatible)
We did it !!! With the help of Use_Less we were able to finally port the FMJ mod to version 1.3 ........ Although the new bloomshader runs a bit slower it improves the HDR-rish look alot and makes the Mod an even better experience...... A dedicated server shortcut is now included to make hosting FMJ games as easy as click and play.....
So all there is left to say is ......HAPPY FRAGGING!!!!
5.56mm Full Metal Jacket (beta version 0.44) AUTHOR: Oneofthe8devilz E-mail: Oneofthe8devilz AT hotmail.com Homepage: http://doom3.planet-multiplayer.de/5.56FMJ/ IMPORTANT ISSUES: 1. 'client unkown to auth' error message when connecting to a 556mmfmj-server: If you get such an error message on connect, simply delete your 'doomkey' file located in your 'base' and '556mmfmj' folder, reconnect to the server and reenter your cd key on demand..... I don't know why this happens but that procedure solves the problem...... 4. Since this is a beta version please DO NOT change the graphic-settings since alot of dds files are missing, resulting in a bad quality image when reducing the settings..... 5. To run a dedicated server simply run the '5.56mm FMJ Mod Dedicated Server' shortcut ===================================== Thank you for downloading and installing the 5.56mm FMJ Mod !

Make sure to install the mod to your Doom³ Folder so point to it (Example C:\games\Doom³)..Once the installation is complete, a shortcut called '5.56mm FMJ Mod' is created on your desktop...... Double click the shortcut and play.......... GAMEPLAY 'desert_plateau': This map scenario takes place on a small mountain plateau where each side spawns inside an aged bunker. Make sure to not let the enemy infiltrate your base.... oh and take a look at the top of the plateau... you might like what you find there The huge trees give excellent cover in case you get ambushed from an unknown direction...... 'desert_delta': This map scenario takes place in a very hot and dry desert valley where each side spawns inside an abandoned desert village. There are several ways to reach the enemy base and plenty of space for hot desert fights.... The desert trees are smaller than the plateau trees but still serve well for cover.... also the village itself leaves plenty of possibilities open to ambush the enemy from a position he doesn't expect 'desert_valley_night': This map scenario is basically the same setup as the 'desert_delta' but takes place during the night... so stealth tactics get even more important since the enemy can see your gunfire from the far distance..... It is curious how the village and landscape changes its flair while everything lights up almost surreal in the moonlight...... 'ammo_docks': This map scenario takes place in a huge military harbour where ships in the background are busy with loading and unloading their cargo. Once in a while an F-16 Fighter Jet is flying over the whole scenario trying to recon the area for the reported intruders.... This map offers excellent close combat fighting where almost everything in the harbour serves as cover, from the containers to the cargo boxes..... Features - 6 different weapons, 3 per side - Realistic bullet-ballistic (real modelled projectiles are fired and react physically correct while getting dragged down by gravity as they proceed flying through the landscape) - Headshots that are deadly with any weapon from any distance - Really huge outdoor environments that are lit with a global lighting system - 6 players (3vs3) support (can be increased if necessary) - A BloomShader which creates a breathtaking HDR like look and makes the Landscaps look more realistic The Idea Behind it: I always wanted to create a shooter that combines the awesome looking graphics of Doom³ with a more tactical game play. I hope I will succeed in melting those two things together and enrich the Doom3Community with a Mod that hopefully will find his lovers Credits: -------------------------------------------------- wishmop (for joining my dev-team and contributing his maps and ideas to this mod) id software (for keep creating breathtaking 3d engines and for deciding to release them modfriendly) doom3world.org (for providing us with the world's greatest Doom³ related user, editor and coder exchange forum) doom3maps.org (for keeping us updated about Doom³ and proving me with webspace and a news distribution option) Der_Ton (for the inspiring time during the work on his md5 importer/exporter which made this mod possible) sparhawk (for adding the team_spawn function to the code and testing it out with me) santaclaws (for allowing me to use his awesome bloomshader code) Use_less (for modifying SantaClaws shader and porting it to version 1.3) placemat,headake, the_tam,baxterianism, gecko..... and many others (for betatesting and giving us a good time) Final words: Damn it ...... it was a hell of a long way to get to where I am now and even though it wasn't always easy to work on such a project as a single person it still proved one thing......One man can make a difference....
