Release: GRAW ModCombination RC2

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello folks,

I was asked for an update already a while ago, but it toke me some time to get motivated to do it.

This time the combination should also work in single player mode. I tested the 1st mission and loaded into the 2nd mission without any problems, so I assume it will work.

The mod was tested almost 3 weeks now on a dedicated server, a big big thank you to Team Stealth for hosting it.

Since I couldn't reach SAP to ask for a permission to use his AK74 and SVD Sniper mod last time,

I just assumed that he would be ok with it and plugged it in this time.

Also I used a lot of Uniforms without asking every creator as well as Agent Smiths Blood mod.

I really don't want to take away any ones credit with this, it’s clearly stated in the read me who created which mod.

I did this for this community and hope that the individual authors are fine with my decision.

The ModCombination comes as an installer which should auto locate your GR:AW directory.

Simply follow the installers steps and start the mod with the Desktop or Start menu shortcut.

So enough talking, here you have the read me and at the bottom the download link.

I hope you like and enjoy it.

( NOTES )

=========================================================================================================

-You MUST have Effects quality on high in order for the Blood mod to work.

-changed all cardriges of the secondary Weapons to 9mm, to work arround a bug.

-changed the MR-C cardrige to 556, so you can pick up ammo for it in the game.

-changed the Weapon and Item id's for the M4 SOPMOD and Meusoc and their attachments.

-changed the Weapon id's for the SVD, AK74 and the GP25, added new animation for SVD

-adjusted some AI, HUD and Gamesettings

-the in Game Language will be English.

-maps that include the new Actors or Compositions require this mod

=========================================================================================================

( OPTIONS )

=========================================================================================================

The mod comes with some batch files that allow you to change some settings or textures.

You will find shortcuts to them in your start menu.

1. Uniform switcher

This little helper allows you to change your Uniform, simply type the number of the uniform

you want to use. Number 15 is a PDF with screenshots of all uniforms.

2. Intro switch

This little helper allows you to enable or disable the intro movie.

3. HUD switch

This little helper allows you to enable or disable the HUD. Be aware of that the inputs that

require the HUD, like the weapon selection for example wont work. Some inputs can even

crash your game, like the multiplayer chat for example. If the HUD is not visible and you use

the key for the chat your game will freeze and crash!

4. AI switcher

This little helper allows you to change some AI settings. With less shooting skill the AI will

have more gun spread. The changed squad setup changes night type Soldiers to regular Soldiers,

the squad layout and some of the guns that are used by AI. The extra AI option will enlarge the

AI squad size, bear in mind that with extra AI some maps can lag or stop working like the

creator intended it to work.

Note: These settings are server based! So if you enter a server, which is using option 10, with

option 12 you wont have any extra AI.

Recommended options for:

Single Player: 1, 7

Campaign Coop: 1, 7

OGR Coop: 4, 10

Dedicated OGR Coop Server: 10

note to GR.net team:

This mod should replace the Modcombination RC1

note to weapon modders:

I found a way to use attachment ids larger than 31. look at the network.xml inside the local/settings folder. its set to 40 in the moment, its tested and stable.

Awesome find! I'll have to look at my other computer for the files you mentioned. Can't believe it took 5 years to find this. It's been the biggest hiccup with weapon modding since the beginning. You'd think GRIN could have at least pointed in the right direction, would have made things sooooooooooooooooooooooo much easier. Renumbering all those attachments was such a headache, more so in 2 then 1, but dang, now all I need is a hottub time machine.

if you have trouble finding the file or what sections you need to edit give me a shout.

i can upload it and mark the sections you need to edit.

also it has a nice side effect. if you dont have that file or if its slightly different than you will be ignored by the server.

(at least when its a dedicated)

that is preventing crashes from different mods. darkside to that its also ignoring unmodded players.

also that trick could work for graw2 as well, but i'm not sure on that.

i dont have graw2 so i cant tell.
