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.

S4NDMoD Public Servers

As many of you are aware, S4NDMoD Hosting closed forever last month.  Our public Return to Castle Wolfenstein servers, such as Depot and Rotation, were very popular with the community and we did not want to see these servers close.  We have decided to re-open our public servers once again, with the exception that Depot is no longer hosted in Germany.  S4NDMoD will not be renting servers.  You can find the list of public servers below.  All of our servers stream to PBBans.com and Yawn.be.  Clicking on the IP address will direct you to the yawn.be page for each server.

RtCW Cheaters

With the release of PunkBuster, the Return to Castle Wolfenstein Cheaters community has declined, but many members still visit the forums daily. This is the new landing page for the RtCW Cheaters community, so please update any bookmarks.

RtCW Cheaters is an online community dedicated to stopping the proliferation of hackers in S4NDMoD. Here you can post demos of hackers you may have seen for review by the panel. If a player is found guilty their IP address(es) will be made public so server administrators may elect to ban these players from their servers.

PunkBuster Anti-Cheat Software

PunkBuster is a computer program that is designed to detect software used for cheating in online games, such as Return to Castle Wolfenstein.  The aim of the program is to isolate cheaters and prevent them from disrupting legitimate games.  If you received the message “PunkBuster is required.  Download at pb.s4ndmod.com”, this is the correct page.  If you are a player, please select the Windows Client listed below.  If you have trouble installing, please ask for help in the forums after reading the Technical Support section below.

Install Instructions

  1. Download the client version and save to desktop.
  2. Run the .exe
  3. Make sure to install it to correct location!
  4. Run the shortcut on your desktop once the installation is finished.
  5. If you have Windows Vista or 7, you must run the shortcut as an administrator! To do that, RIGHT click on the shortcut and select run as administrator

Technical Support / FAQ

Below are the solutions to several common problems experienced.  Please try one of these before requesting support.

1) I get kicked for “YourName PunkBuster kicked player ‘YourName’ (for 2 minutes) … RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe

You need to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein under an administrator account.  If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista, RIGHT click on the program and select “Run as Administrator”

2) I receive the error message “cannot load default.cfg

You installed the patch in the wrong directory(folder). Please run the patch again and pay very close attention to what is being asked of you. When it asks for your path to Return to Castle Wolfenstein please point it to where your game is located.

3) My downloads in-game are looping / re-downloading the same file.

This appears to be caused by the permissions in Windows. While there may be another solution the easiest fix is simply run as admin.  See #1 for instructions.

4) My screen is completely gray when I run the game.

If you are using a NVIDIA card please check what version of the drivers you are running. In order for the client to run you will need v190.62. This is very easy.

  1. Visit this link: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx
  2. Enter the info according to your video card and operating system.
  3. Download v190.62
  4. Run the installer, once completed it may ask you to reboot. If it does reboot your computer.
  5. Try running the game once again.

(thanks crapshoot for the help figuring this one out!)

If you are using an ATI card, please check what version of the drivers you are running.  In order for the client to run, you will need v10.4 or earlier.

  1. Visit this link: http://ati.amd.com/
  2. Enter the info according to your video card and operating system in the “Driver Downloads” box on the TOP RIGHT side of the page
  3. Scroll down to “Previous Drivers”. Do NOT download the newest version.
  4. Download Catalyst v10.4.
  5. Run the installer, once completed it may ask you to reboot. If it does reboot your computer.
