A quick note for those joining the classic RO Mod 3.3 for UT2004 game event today. The installer was designed before UT2004 was on Steam. So when you install it, first off you should put it here:

<Steam Install Dir>\Steam\steamapps\common\unreal tournament 2004\

Make sure that you don't have "UT2004" appended on the end of the install directory, as this will be the default behavior of the installer.

To launch the mod with the Steam version, you need to modify the launch options for UT2004.To do this follow these steps:

1) Under "Library" find Unreal Tournament 2004 in the list and right click on it.
2) Select "Properties" from the list that appears
3) Select "Set Launch Options" from the menu that appears
4) Add the following to the box that appears:
-mod=RedOrchestra
5) Close the window
6) Then launch UT2004 from within Steam and the Red Orchestra mod should launch


Additionally, if you use triple buffering you will get some wierd jittering online unless you turn VSync on. You can do this in the RedOrchestra.ini file which is located in

Steam Version
<Steam Install Dir>\Steam\steamapps\common\unreal tournament 2004\RedOrchestra\System

Disc Version
<install dir>UT2004\RedOrchestra\System

Just look for UseVSync and set it to :
UseVSync=True

everywhere you find it, particularly the
[D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] section. Hey, noone said playing a classic game wouldn't have a few bumps ;)

The Darkest Hour team and Tripwire Interactive are happy to bring you the latest installment for their mod for Red Orchestra. The latest release of Darkest Hour: Europe 44-45 brings new features, 2 new vehicles and 6 new maps, to update the most popular Red Orchestra mod.

The most exciting new feature is one that the Red Orchestra fans have been asking for, for quite a while: mantling. The Darkest Hour team is proud to bring you a full implementation of mantling, working in all the DH maps. For all those RO fans who have yet to try Darkest Hour - this could be the time!


The new vehicles are the American M36 Jackson "Slugger" and the German Panzer III Ausf. N. For these to roam around on, there are also 6 new maps from Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge:

* Dog Green Beech on D-Day (a condensed re-release of the old Beta map)
* Freyneux and LaMormenil
* Hurtgenwald (back by popular demand)
* La Chapelle
* La Monderie
* Noville

On top of that, there is a HUGE change-list, with pages of other new and updated features and bug-fixes. As always, this Darkest Hour update is completely free to anyone who owns a copy of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45.

DH will auto-update via Steam if you already have it installed - or you can install it for free from <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/app/1280/">Steam</a>.


For the full details of all the additions, updates, changes and bug-fixes, head for the Darkest Hour forums on the website: <a href="http://www.darkesthourgame.com/">http://www.darkesthourgame.com/</a> . It has been a long time coming - but it has been well worth the wait!
