I really miss the Jolly Rogers Tank server using the Darkest Hour Mod for RO1. that was some of the best online tank warfare I ever played,
even though the graphics were outdated. I hope this update for RO2 helps these guys get back to the great tank Battles RO once had.
I would play it a lot more if they did.

In RO2 you need to earn your way to these new weapons, not like you can just go in there and choose it and play, you have to play and unlock the weapons.
RO2 does have some new maps that I never played on, its been probably 4-6 months since I last played and there must have been at least one update before the latest.

I'm glad to see the game go from strength-to-strength. New maps, tweaks, new weapons ~ I have an XP (as Gunter points out), earned from playing, of #71 [26/09/14 #72 : -)].
XP goes up continually and I have unlocked a great deal of the weaponry available. Looking forward to the new maps coming around the servers!

Was playing last night for a number of hours and was using primarily the mg34 as thats my main thing the mg, as was in RO, hence my name based on two real mg 42 gunners [wink]
Anyways I unlocked the belt fed version of the mg34, I can use single drum, dual drum and now Im at the belt, which i think is 250rds have to look again, was alot of fun.

In other RO2 news I just happened apon this:
http://karelianfront.com/article/forests-finland



Apparently theres a new mod in the works based on the Finnish front, this will be interesting as the Finnish front has not been covered
by any game I know of other then OFP's WW2 mod FDF WW2.

Lets not also forget:
the Vietnam mod coming out as well

I've heard of games where the German team consists of mainly MG42s. I call that bad game design. I also wouldn't call the In Country a mod. As it will be like Rising Storm. A purchased add on with a free lite version.
I like RO2 but something about it makes me not want to play it. I'm waiting for Tripwire to make a full fledged Tank simulator.

There are some things I dont care for the clutter on the hud when objectives and things get updated but I think that can be turned off, some sounds are to wishy, or fishy, airy sounds, like a sh sh sh sound I hate that, but my next post theres a mutator that changes all the sounds.
Among other things.

But what exactly dont you like?

Immersion Overhaul mutator
http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=92324

On the steam workshop:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=145520002&searchtext=
FEATURES:

  • Better Realism Mod: Panzer Jager '43's Better Realism Mod: http://forums.tripwireinteractive.co...ad.php?t=91184
  • NoZoom: You may now disable all zoom in the configuration menu! You may disable just IS zoom or just Shift zoom if you care to, too
  • Shrapnel effects for explosives: antipersonnel explosives (artillery, grenades) produce deadly shrapnel that you can hear
  • Bullet whips: conditionally play bullet cracks based on estimated speed at point of closest contact
  • Replaced Arty Sounds: Almost every arty sound has been changed. Artillery is somewhat Hollywood, but scary. Mortars are subtle whizzes, if you're closeenough to hear one falling you're probably dead. And rockets are screaming banshees.
  • Replaced Grenade Sounds: New, with less fall off at distance like all new explosions
  • Dynamic Movement Speed: You will slow down running through snow, water, uphill or upstairs, and you will run slightly faster on terrain such as roads. It's a gradual change.
  • Skins: Added support for new player models and skins! Will eventually be configurable serverside and hopefully by map.
  • Decals: Decals spawn on helmets! Only in RS at the moment, due to a bug.
  • Blood Effects: Spurting blood for neck shots that also trails on the ground.
  • Shoot off helmets: Chance for helmets (only helmets) to be blown off by gunshots or explosions (RO2 only)
  • "Cinematic" death effects: Screen and audio fade. Headshots result in muted audio
  • Location specific death sounds: horrible gurgling and screaming [redface] and quiet headshot deaths
  • Modified running, footstep, and ladder climbing sounds
  • Resupply mg sound is back
  • Shooting screaming dead people in the head will silence them ... but only if you are playing online [redface]
  • New weapons: PPD-40, RG-42, RGD-33, M38 Carbine, DT LMG, Molotov Cocktail, K98k Zielsechs. Removed bayonet from MN9130 PEM.
  • See your own shadow, with weapons!
