Tactical Intervention OPEN BETA UPDATE - April 7, 2016

Beta Update - April 7, 2016

Hey guys, it's been a couple weeks since the Open Beta started. Things are going quite well, and we're pretty close to doing a full proper update.

As a Reminder, to Opt into the Beta, you must install regular Tactical Intervention, right click the game in Steam Library, click properties and switch to "open beta - testbed" to download the beta version.

Here is what's coming in this beta update:

  • MONACO-- Monaco has received a complete overhaul with a slightly different VIP Mode, known as MAFIA ESCAPE. Instead of Counter-Terrorists having the VIP, The terrorists have The BOSS.
    Stage1: Terrorists have 2 squads + the Boss. One Squad must attack the Casino. The other Squad must PROTECT the Boss, and help him escape to the cars.
    Stage2: The Mafia Team must drive The BOSS to the escape helicopter. Once the Boss is inside, a few moments later the Helicopter will take off. The Mafia must protect the Helicopter until it can escape. The Monaco Police (CT) Must do whatever they can to stop it.
  • lots of updates to SKYRISE
  • lots of updates to VILLA
  • additional fixes to INNERCITY for collision, as well as added cubemaps around the stage 2 escape point
  • new collision fixes for HIGHWAY around the roads to reduce getting stuck on collision
  • [driving] cars have an all new suspension system, this really needs some good testing to make sure the cars are in tip-top shape.
  • [driving]new sounds for driving on dirt roads
  • [driving]car tires now visually pop again like they did until Sept 2013
  • [driving]cull detail sprites that are inside the car you are riding in
  • fix the bug allowing you to put a sniper rifle/dog in both fallback and normal
  • fix the bug with minimap/sa indicator option, not hiding the minimap when set to SA only.
  • disable NPC indicator particles
  • don't play the "heal me" sound anymore, because it's really annoying
  • don't give hints against helicopter pilots
  • Newly created rooms aren't respecting certain settings, like auto-balance --- Requires Lobby shutdown and maintenance, as well as client update.
  • shaders updated again

Announcing Tactical Intervention 2016 OPEN BETA

First let me start out by saying thank you for your continued support, and massive apologies for the almost 16 month delay between actually getting anything new.

We are starting with an Open Beta, instead of updating the live version immediately. In order to join the beta you must right click on Tactical Intervention in your steam library, selecting Properties, click the BETAS tab and opt into the ('testbed - TEST VERSION ( BETA )'). Steam will then switch the version and download the beta version.

Note that there are a limited number of dedicated servers for this beta, however the first thing you'll notice is that there is both a Europe and.. North America Lobby!
During the beta, the game servers in North America are only located on the West Coast.

Important things to note about the Open Beta:
1) The servers may suddenly go down without any notification for updates
2) The lobby itself is located in Korea, so while it's on the same private network as all of the other servers, it is still very far away and thus occasionally network communication between it and the other servers can be slow, or even fail at times.
3) Please Communicate all issues on the Beta Forum! we have spent a lot of time changing/fixing/optimizing but it is still possible that some things either have been missed, or that some configurations behave negatively.

Included in this open beta, is an ULTRA BETA Linux Client. If you have a Linux machine that can run modern games decently, give it a try and let us know if it IMPLODES or not.

About This Game

Tactical Intervention is a Free to Play tactical FPS with unique mechanics. Drive, bomb, rappel and shoot your way through eleven high octane levels.

Command attack dogs, deploy breaching charges, perform drive-bys and control hostage situations!

From the brilliant mind of Minh “Gooseman” Le, the co-creator of the seminal team-based FPS Counter-Strike, comes its spiritual successor, Tactical Intervention. Take your role as either terrorist or counter-terrorist and confront opponents in fierce and frantic combat over a variety of high energy maps wielding authentic real world weapons, from the classic P90 to the terrorist favourite, the AK47.

Featuring unique games modes and mechanics not seen in other shooters, Tactical Intervention allows you to experience first person combat from an entirely new perspective. Hijack a car to take part in an intense highway chase; unload your high-powered Gabard shotgun at the VIP while leaning out the window, as your opponents scramble to protect him. Take out the covering helicopter with a well-placed shot from an RPG while you handbrake turn to broadside your target.

Experience the thrill of rappelling down a building, kicking in the plexiglass, hurling a flash bang, grabbing a hostage as a human shield, and dealing some rapid fire death with your Uzi. Use riot shields to defend yourself against enemy forces and then command your vicious German Shepard attack dog to savage terrorists out of line of sight. Dive to cover and lay down suppressing fire with your Aug assault rifle so your teammates can liberate the terrified hostages.

Combining the strategic elements of modern team-based shooters with the pure thrill of the original Counter Strike series, Tactical Intervention brings a whole new level of gaming to the battlefield and lets players feel the true intensity of battle. With a huge variety of weapons, special equips, authentic combat uniforms and paths to victory, Tactical Intervention truly is the next evolution in team-based combat. So grab your P90, slap on a red-dot, twist in a silencer and dive into TI!

A New Era in Tactical Combat

  • Created by Minh ‘Gooseman’ Le, co-creator of the original Counter-Strike.
  • Dozens of authentic weapons with true-to-life statistics including the P90, AK47, Uzi and M4.
  • New items for new tactics including attack dogs, riot shields, breaching charges and night vision.

I don't know what to write, so here's the recipe for chocolate chip cookies:

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips, or chunks
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine salt

Evenly position 2 racks in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. (on convection setting if you have it.) Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone sheets. (If you only have 1 baking sheet, let it cool completely between batches.)

Put the butter in a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave on medium power until melted. (Alternatively melt in a small saucepan.) Cool slightly. Whisk the sugars, eggs, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.

Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon; take care not to over mix. Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks.

Scoop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared pans. Wet hands slightly and roll the dough into balls. Space the cookies about 2-inches apart on the pans. Bake, until golden, but still soft in the center, 12 to 16 minutes, depending on how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies. Transfer hot cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool. Serve.

Store cookies in a tightly sealed container for up to 5 days.

For a Rocky Road Bar
Lightly butter a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Make the batter as per cookie recipe and fold in 1 cup chopped walnuts along with the chocolate chips. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake until the edges are light brown and the batter sets, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly and cover surface with 4 cups marshmallows and 1 cup chocolate chips. Broil at least 8 inches from the heat until marshmallows turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. (Keep an eye on the marshmallows, and turn the pan frequently--they go from golden to char in a wink.) Cool, cut and serve.

I spent over 100 hours on this game, but that was a couple of years ago, 'Tactical Intervention' was my first Steam game, at first i reckoned it was one hell of an amazing game until I started playing CSGO, back in the day the game was well balanced and a bit buggy, the Asia server were pretty popular, things went well during aniversaries they would give you what I think was 50,000 free credits to blow on anything you like, I decided to get back into this game a few months a go only to come to the realisation of, REMOVED SERVERS; now I can't even have any fun with this game unless I have to put up 300-400 ping on an American/European server.
