I tried it for Mutilplayer and the weapon models are outstanding. Sadly the mod doesn't have any war effects like eXtreme+ or AWE. The download is rather large too due to sounds and single player stuff.
Though someone could transplant those weapons over to another mod, with MCH's permission. They'll probably end up in eXtreme+ 3.0 sooner or later.

*Gore mod gone, but still has bloodpools, and bloodsplat. *Better class functions all classes can press V + V to plant landmine. *Each class has a defuse chance for landmines. *Medkits and Ammoboxes added (along with scripts to regain health and rearm ammo) *Support can rearm pistol ammo V + M *Support can drop ammobox V + A *Medic can drop medkit V + A *Medic can drop healthbag V + M *Many script related errors remove such as scriptmenu, character gsc and other typos.
Some things I need to work out: *Limit the call medic tracers to location of Medkits. *Limit the call support tracers to location of ammoboxes. *Better Ammobox 3D models. *Give ether Engineers (officers) or Snipers TNT/Dynomite via V + A *Another 3d model to drop like a GrenadeBox/GrenadeCrate to rearm grenades. *Stop players from dying when switching classes on same team. *Mess with health regeneration system, make players bleed out from damage. Fall to prone from damage. *Black screen when dying. *Anti-camp system *Turret Overheat *Anti-dive bomber/ Jump Monitor with a working sprint system (works in Demon mod)
Stuff for later on: *Each class gets a static perk. Solider = UVA ticker, Medic = Carepackage ticker, Support = Bomb Squad perk, Officer = Endurance, Sniper = Airstrike ticker.
V3.4 Public Beta should broadcast as dedicated server. Though I'm unable to test it in the mode due to blocked ports. But V3.3 (older) was unstable and didn't broadcast right. Will likely not revise V3.3 Branch since the gore mod causes game crashing bone errors.
Turns out mixing Merciless Mod and AWE is not as easy as I though. I found AWE 3.4.2 to be a bit buggy. Later I'd like to patch up AWE 3 to as I believe there needs to be a solid ultra lightweight mod.
For now I'm updating Merciless Mod 2, removed the gore mod and transplanting features over from other mods to it, Converted some medkit and ammobox models over to CoD2 too. Merciless Mod 2 is now around 50mb total download, used to be 136mb. More information will be posted once I get into late beta or release candidate stage.
In the mean time if you want to find those bugs in AWE 3.4.2,
I heard they are good for fast responses. But are they worth the cost? , probably not unless you play video games for money. Good old USB keyboard does the trick fine. Older PS/2 can be good two, but are obsolete due to old connectors.
Rather put my money in a better rig then a fancy keyboard.
I got permission from RGN to do an unofficial continuation of CoD2 AWE. I intend to revise it heavily to make it rock solid, maybe not as great as Extreme+ but great in it's own way. Before I go into details, I'd like to ask two questions:
Why does EC run AWE 3 CE, instead of AWE 3.4.2?
Is there any major issues with AWE 3.4.2 that I should know of? aside from non-working sprint, and PanzerN00bTubes
The proposed details: It's going to be AWE meets Merciless and meets realism Mod. Merciless Mod 2 class base system ported over to AWE, recoil will be raise across the board. Reduction of non-working or unneeded gametypes. Possible partial Blood mod port, add in blood pools, head decap ect. Revised plant MG script, you can fire mobile mg which you can plant. Overhauled sprint system with animation, different levels of sprint per weapon.
Already got the Merciless Mod 2 class system in AWE. Just need to keep digging in.
The Licence: Will only require permission if content is being used in public mod. To ensure everyone get credited Private mod servers like EC could modify it and make there own flavor, like if they want to low recoil ect. Can freely publicly distribute unmodified copies and freely run on game server without permission
