[addendum] It's worth noting here that the mod won't work correctly on installs of Return to Castle Wolfenstein multi player that aren't patched up to date with pr1.41 (if you have the Game of The Year edition [GoTY] you should be ok), so if you encounter any problems get your install up to date 1st and see if that fixes any issues.
The updates need to be applied incrementally so you have to apply v1.1 first and then the next one and so on. All the patches for RtCW MP can be found at WolfensteinX here.
Official press release... Various gaming magazines have given this mod a bit of coverage and they're pretty excited by it. So grab the files (c. 260MB) and see what all the fuss is about..!
Want to be a DeGenerate? You bet you do! Version 1.0 of DeGeneration, a multiplayer modification to Return to Castle Wolfenstein, has arrived and is ready to download!
DeGeneration brings new weapons to Wolfenstein like the Snooper Rifle, FG42 and Tesla gun as well as features such as Parachuting, movable MG42s, Deathmatch, Assault and a gameplay that PC Gamer US called "Novel, Gripping and Fun". PCZone says "Classy maps, great atmosphere, enjoyable gameplay and more make this a top-class mod."
Here's what PC Gamer UK said about DG. "Take a flat-packed weapon of mass destruction, some gun-toting Axis and Allies types and one ingenious idea and you have the DeGeneration team play mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein."
You can grab the mod and get more information @ TRAM Design
Following on from the hotnews last week about the Return to Castle Wolfenstein DeGeneration MP mod level designers 'kit' (that's a mouthful to say..!), the Tram Design team just sent word that they have officially announced a release date for their full v1.0 release candidate...
"We'll be releasing DeGeneration v1.0, a multiplayer mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, on Sunday March 20th!"
That's this coming Sunday folks...! The mod's had a pretty good reception in the gaming press, some of which you can read on the DeGenerations website, and this looks like a mod to breath some life back into the ailing original Return to Castle Wolfenstein multi player, which has been dying a slow death since the release of RtCW : Enemy Territory MP.
