Reich Strikes Back Cup

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”

Nope! It is going to happen again right here and right now! We are happy to announce the upcoming Return to Castle Wolfenstein Cup: The Reich Strikes Back and see as many teams as possible whambamshazam each other on the battlefield.

With the RtCW Alliance Cup being a success, the people behind the cup have decided to host another edition. This time your adminteam will be bully, Virus047, Gut, Lasher and adeto. They will do their very best to create another great tournament and an as joyful as possible experience for teams, players and of course the loyal viewers over at WarWitchTV!

As in the previous tournament, we will start off with a group stage. Aiming for sixteen teams, we will have four groups of four, one of which will hold the North American teams. Unlike the previous tournament though, we have decided to have forced maps during the groups. This way we can see all maps of the pool being played, instead of good old Village and Ice all the time. This is where we take the jump to the schedule, as that will also reveal the maps for each matchweek!

“We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” Jens Matthies, creative director of the Sweden-based MachineGames, said in a statement. “As fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”

RtCW 2013 – State of the Game

Hello Wolfenstein fans! Welcome to another year of exciting Return to Castle Wolfenstein action. As we begin another year, I wanted to outline some of the events happening in the RtCW community over the past year and upcoming this year.

First, an updated version of the S4NDMoD PunkBuster installer has been released. This will also provide the updated master server list. A version is also available for 1.4 players. If your server list is empty, please install this. Server admins, please remember to set sv_master1 to “wolfmaster.s4ndmod.com”

The RtCW 2012-2013 Cup is still in full swing with the playoffs in progress. You can catch all of the information over on Warwitch’s Facebook page.

Lastly, check out RtCW Coop! This lets you play the single player game with your friends. You need to have RtCW 1.4 patch installed to get it to work, but it is well worth it. You can have both 1.0 and 1.4 installed at the same time!

RtCW Engine Source Code Released

John Carmack announced the release of the engine source code for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory today at QuakeCon.  While S4NDMoD has no plans to work on the engine, the guys at ioQuake3 plan to work on both ET and RtCW.  If you are interested in looking or modifying the source code, you can grab the RtCW Single or Multi player source code from the links below.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein MultiPlayer Engine Source Code (RTCW-MP-GPL.zip) (3.17 MB)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein SinglePlayer Engine Source Code (RTCW-SP-GPL.zip) (3.55 MB)

OSP Objective Cup [Canceled]

This event has been canceled.  A cup may be run by S4NDMoD in the near future.

Hello Wolfenstein fans.  It has been a while since any significant news has graced the front page of s4ndmod.com.  A new RtCW 1.4 OSP cup is slowly gaining interest.  Matches will be 5v5 or 6v6.  The cup has not been finalized because more players and teams are needed. 

To all of the 1.0 clans that will read this.  While most of you probably only play deathmatch now, I am sure many of you can remember the fun matches you used to play on servers like Beach, KennysCult and many of the other objective servers.  This may be the last opportunity to play objective matches versus skilled, human opponents.  There is no cost to join the cup.

If you are interested, please contact Source via email at src722@hotmail.com or on X-Fire: src722.
