As we have seen several people asking about Western Front content, we felt it would be wise of us to point you to the: Heroes Of The West mod, who are actually on their third playable release already and working on a major 4th update.


Features already include:
  • Americans vs Germans
  • Updated UI to reflect changes
  • New American uniforms: Airborne and Rangers
  • American helmets with nets!
  • New victory music for both factions

    And they are looking for more members to help them bring more content sooner (Maps, weapons, voices, vehicles and uniforms)! So if you feel you can help them with one of those, contact them today!


    When installing the mod (Manually installing the mod from the Media Fire Link or from
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=319269696) make sure to read the Read Me as you need to make some changes to your .ini files for the game to get it to work properly.

New Map
  • Added Demyansk

    After the original attempt to encircle the German forces at Demyansk, German troops managed to hold open a supply corridor and set up a strong defensive line. The German army kept the corridor open in hopes it would it would draw forces away from other parts of the front. Their strong defensive positions made this battle long and costly before the German forces finally pulled out.

Updated Maps
  • Gumrak - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.
  • Barashka - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.

Bugs Fixed
Maps
  • Fallen Fighters - Fixed reported exploit
  • Barracks - Fixed reported exploit

Campaign
  • Fixed a bug that would allow Russians to spawn with the MG-42 and allow Germans to spawn on them

General

  • Fixed a bug that would allow users to minimize or turn off weapon bob

In just a few minutes the "Rising Storm Beta" application will be updated to the latest beta build of the game! Featuring bug fixes, some community feature requests, and the new vehicles and weapon!

We will be opening up our server tomorrow to host the first outside the office test so stay tuned for an event announcement with the exact time!


PSA:

As a heads up for those who already installed the beta. Until just now the beta was using the live games Config files. To address this problem please do the following (we are updating this in the beta but for those who already ran it you will need to do this by hand or delete your config files).

Navigate to your Rising Storm Beta install directory and drill into ROGame/Config. It should look something like this: D:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Rising Storm Beta\ROGame\Config. Once there open up the DefaultEngine.ini file and search for the following section:

[Windows.StandardUser]
MyDocumentsSubDirName=

And make it look like this:

[Windows.StandardUser]
MyDocumentsSubDirName=Rising Storm Beta

Then save the folder. The next time you launch the game it should use the right directory.

In the near future we plan on rolling out an update to the Rising Storm beta so the community can help us balance some of our upcoming content to Red Orchestra 2! (We recommend you do not install it just yet as you will have to do a huge update/download when we release the new build). So stay tuned to the official forums and here at the Official Game Group for more information!

TWI Ladder and Tripwire Interactive are also pleased to announce the Fall 2014 Season for competitive for RO2/Rising Storm. There will be two competitions in parallel - one for the classic Territory game mode, the other for Countdown mode. Both will run for 10 weeks, starting from Sunday 14 September, so there is still time to sign your team for a chance at the total prize pool of $1,000 for each ladder!
