Hopefully it will tempt all the COD/CODUO/COD2 servers to move to DH. :p

Maybe even tempt all the DOD 1.3 servers too.

Could their be a way of steam advertising DH or does it cost money ?

Well, they may mention it in one of their updates for free I think . . . (Like "Two major mods for RO has been released").

Anenas is right. I guess you could call it vision...or ambition :eek: The question is why integrate Darkest Hour when it can and will be so much more?

It can be whatever it want, but if people are not moving their asses to play it; it's fail.

Thats why we are adding more content than anyother RO mod, More maps, more weapons, more player models and new features.
That is why we are sure, once people have tried it they will keep coming back for more and more.

The issue isn't really how easy it is to get from RO to DH but the thing is no one wants to sit in a near empty server to wait for it to fill up. Here's what happens, a player loads DH, sees 3 people in server, says screw it I want to play in a full RO server and leaves. There might be 20 people who load up in DH in 30 seconds but all will see an empty server.

If it's integrated you can have it on RO servers and then there's no issue.

Anyways, hope you guys can figure something out otherwise I fear for the longevity of the mod (as awesome as it looks -- RO's community is rather small)

It's the same thing as people not wanting to seed a server.



I will be a completley new player to the whole RO/DH community, Ever since seeing the first DH videos it made me get off my butt and build a new machine just for this game! I have been trying to get everyone i know into darkest hour and we need to do everything we can to get those servers FILLED!!!

good footage, can't wait.

as for integration maybe if the devs could add something in the main menu of RO that would allow for starting mods much like CoD games have done.

Looking spectacular fellas, personally I can't wait to give the Krauts a rogering with my Rifle Model 1 Caliber .30-06 :D

Also your No.4 MkI looks perfect, in fact all your models are looking top notch!

Similar to Battlefield 2, adding a mod starting up option directly from the RO main menu seems like a good idea.

I just cannot wait for this mod to come out and play it up, it looks pretty good so far. I am a Dod:S player, and Avid DoD:D player at that, so I hope this game is worth all the hype. It should be anyway.

I was wondering if TW have any plans of hosting one of their own official server exclusively for DH ?

Super! Last (and first) time RO had parachutes was way back in the mod on IronAnnie. Radioman looks very useful if you've got two guys that play well with each other.

Yep it's a very good teamwork feature, hope the devs have other ideas like this in the works.

I personally have no doubt that DH is going to be a fantastic mod, perhaps the best of the three (though time will tell). I just hope that a) any new players it attracts from DoD/CoD/etc aren't put off by the RO realism and that b) our Aussie community can support it. We're a small, isolated community and we only have the playerbase to support one server at a time. Whether that one server ends up being RO/CC or DH though is yet to be seen.
