Realistic Guns Advanced: Version 9

Hey all.

The original Realistic Guns Advanced has been updated for the first time in ... about 2 years? This wad first dates back from 2008.

I picked it up yesterday and decided I could make some changes to make it more DM friendly and fixed up a few things. It isn't all that much, but hosting this last night was great fun to play with about 4-5 people in DM.

Can't remember what I changed entirely, but some couple things I do remember:
- Snipers would freeze up when running out of ammo
- Claymores didn't do enough damage to players

So yes, instead of making a Coop version release, I achieved pretty much the same thing with the "rga_coopmode" cvar, you need to manually set it. I may change it so that it's automatically turned on when playing Coop, but I guess some people would prefer the challenge for when it's turned off.



I have thought about doing a revamp, but I'm not sure. It would include better rips, ironsights (optional for high accuracy to keep to the original RGA feel), some more weapons, other stuff no one cares about.

Thanks, I always liked RGA1 so much more than RGA2!

Cheers, guys, it's nice to be working on this wad again.

A new version will be coming out soon, here are a list of notable changes:
- Added a reload key (like in MW2) So now sniper rifles can be manually reloaded
- Weapons will no longer switch off if they have no ammo and cannot be reloaded
- Claymores have been completely recoded, so they are now also directional (will possibly port to RGA2)
- FAMAS reload can now be interrupted (forgot to add that for it in the last version)

A Co-Op version will be released as well, to make it more friendly with Cooperative.
Alternatively! I could just try some extra ACS scripting to achieve a built-in Cooperative mode

Double post :/

Update ready! Not much else I can think of to fix/tweak, but I will eventually have something to do for it. Thankfully it's a fairly small wad, and I don't need to make separate wads.

New with VIII
- Added a reload key (like in MW2) So now sniper rifles can be manually reloaded
- Weapons will no longer switch off if they have no ammo and cannot be reloaded
- Claymores have been completely recoded, so they are now also directional (will possibly port to RGA2)
- FAMAS reload can now be interrupted (forgot to add that for it in the last version)
- Team coloured claymores
- "rga_coopmode" cvar, when set to 1, all weapons get "extended mags" (like in the Coop version of RGA), sniper rifles do extra damage, H&K 69 does extra damage, M249 SAW doesn't spawn, claymores are armed as soon as they are placed, and 4 claymores are given from claymore pickups (instead of 2)
- M90 Shotty and Robar RC-50 can be interrupted when cycling/pumping, and will continue when swiched back to the weapon
- Fixed a bug that crashed the game
- Claymores no longer replace backpacks

I just tried it out some, and already have a few nit picks.. First off, the hud is streached so much on my screen, shit gets cut off.. not only that but the hudface is off center.. >implying you wanted to put the hudface in the center. See this screenshot below...



What res do you play at anyhow??

Also, the alt fire wakes up monsters.. Like.. start Map01, press alt fire, the zombies wake up..

Ill post more as I find some..

EDIT: found something..

Nvm that, it happens to all weapons.. I think it has to do with the no switch when empty thing.

This one is in my opinion, way better than RGA2. In RGA2, the weapons apparently are in greyscale, you have to use the give all cheat to see what everything is and it has as an entity, destroyed the fun of Doom.
