Installation: *IMPORTANT: DO NOT RENAME THE DIRECTORY OF THE MOD* If you have a previous installation of this mod you MUST completely remove the boogweapmod3 directory first!!! CLIENTS AND SERVERS: Unzip into the root of your RTCW install. For instance if the game is installed at C:Return to Castle Wolfenstein then unzip the mod into C:Return to Castle Wolfenstein. After the mod has been unziped there should be a /boogweapmod3/ directory with a file called boogweapmod3beta1.pk3 and this readme.txt in it. Your path to the mod with the above example would be: c:Return to Castle Wolfensteinboogweapmod3 DO NOT EXTRACT THIS ZIP INTO THE main DIRECTORY! CLIENT SETUP: Clients simply run the WolfMP with no special commands to use this mod. When joining a server that has the mod running it automatically tells the client to use the mod. note: Joining a server with PURE OFF can cause errors. SERVER SETUP (BOTH DEDICATED AND NON DEDICATED): The first thing you have to do is extract qagame_mp_x86.dll from boogweapmod3v1_0.pk3 and place it into the boogweapmod3 folder. If you are running a linux server then extract qagame.mp.i386.so from boogweapmod3v1_0.pk3 and place it into the boogweapmod3 folder. Servers have to set their server with *PURE ON* or else clients can have serious errors. The command to force PURE SERVER ON is +set sv_pure 1 If you wish to launch a server through the in-game menu you can load the mod via the MODS menu which is accessed from the the OPTIONS menu. After you launch the mod simply click on MULTIPLAYER then CREATE SERVER. Be sure to have PURE SERVER set to YES. If you are running a dedicated server from a command line you need to add this to your .bat or shell script that runs wolfmp.exe or wolfded. Also this command can NOT be run from a config file. Whatever file executes the actual wolfmp.exe is where this command has to go. If you get an error saying fs_game is write protected then you added this command to the wrong place. +set fs_game boogweapmod3 so an example server startup line might look like this. wolfmp.exe +set dedicated 2 +set fs_game boogweapmod3 +set sv_pure 1 +exec server.cfg -------------------------------------------------------------- Extra Notes: There are a few situations where the game will be using the wrong dll's. 1. If you join a pure server running this mod, then quit to the main menu and join a server not running this mod AND they have pure OFF the game will continue to point to the boogweapmod3 directory and dll's. You should be able to join the game, but picking the FG42 will result in giving you the default weapon for that team. 2. If you join a pure server running this mod, then quit to the main menu and join a server not running this mod AND they have pure ON the game will continue to point to the boogweapmod3 directory. The dll's from the regular game will overwrite the custom dll's from boogweapmod3. If you now quit the regular server and join another server running this mod, but they have pure OFF, you will crash to the desktop with a script error. If you wish to run a server with this mod and you want to have pure OFF you will run the risk of clients having problem #2 listed above. Clients who wish to join a server running this mod with pure OFF can restore the correct dll's simply by joining another server running the mod that has pure ON. After you leave the server you should be able to join the non pure server without errors. If you are savvy with pkzip you also could extract the cgame and ui dll's from the pk3 and place them into your /boogweapmod3/ directory before starting RTCW.
