...und vermutlich als OFFIZIELLER EA-Patch...
...damit wird hoffentlich eine kleine neue "Epoche" für das Spiel eingeleitet:
Today is the day the arrow reveals all! In this post, you will learn about the newest (and yet the oldest) development team in Renegade! Your support in this new group is humbly requested as we have learned from our past mistakes and those of others. I now present to you, on behalf of the excellent group I represent, Tiberian Technologies!
Who is Tiberian Technologies?
Tiberian Technologies is a newly formed group, founded in December 2007 by mac and Crimson, who aimed to unite the best Renegade coders, as there are many individual groups trying to achieve similar things. Now, all of the people that created the most widely-used software utilities such as RenGuard, BRenBot, BIATCH, scripts.dll, and Renegade Resurrection are now united into one single group: Tiberian Technologies.
This group is dedicated to eradicate the heretics and restore Renegade to its former glory! Our first step is the creation of a new patch. We hope that with the community's support, we can get this patch sent through to all players as an official game patch. It consists of many bugfixes and an extremely extended version of the old custom scripts.dll, a new map, and a lot of stuff ported over from BlackIntel's projects and Renegade Resurrection.
TT strives to bring Renegade up to the next level. The game we have played and loved for years will be updated to include fixes for many nasty bugs, reduction of lag issues, and even enhanced gameplay with new features.
We've been working for a long time in the shadows to bring you the most important Renegade development in the past 5 years and now we are proud to announce a new patch!
The patch, originally planned as Core Patch 3, contains the following highlights:
built in Anti Cheat (replaces RenGuard)
automatic downloading of maps and other content
better compatibility with programs such as VoiceOverlay for TeamSpeak
countless engine bugfixes and performance enhancements
most prominent bugfixes:
Blue Hell fix!
Purchase Terminals no longer broken after rejoin
The pistol now starts out loaded when you spawn
The repair bays on Glacier Flying and other maps with repair bays now work correctly
You will no longer be killed on some maps if you are standing right next to the weapons factory and someone buys a vehicle
Taking a screenshot no longer causes lag
Using a sniper scope no longer causes lag
Support for using the left and right side buttons on mice with more than 3 buttons
The weapon back and forward keys will now skip weapons that are out of ammo. You can still access those weapons by pressing the number keys to select the specific weapon
New feature on vehicles that calculate damage points based on last occupant
Points Fix - fixes an error in the way points are calculated when attacking vehicles with green health. Against all other targets, points are directly proportionate to damage, but not green-health vehicles due to a coding mistake. This is why, for example, snipers could get illogically high points for attacking heavy vehicles they did very little damage to.
The selection of where you spawn when you join the game/die/etc is now more random
"City2" map by Deathlink6.0 will be shipped with the patch
BRenBot and NightRegulator will be updated as necessary to support these changes, and we will work with other bot authors to update theirs as well.
These communities have been recognized by TT as the most popular and influential and as such, their leadership has received advance notification of this project and have all agreed to support it and us in any way they can. It will be very important to have these communities and everyone else possible participate in testing this patch in order to convince EA that such a patch should be released officially to all players and made mandatory. This part is essential to the success of the anti-cheat components.
