For those that missed it, the latest update to the multiplayer beta of Return to Castle Wolfenstein (version b7) was added to Id's ftp site last Friday afternoon. Though there were no bug fixes or added features listed, one of the highlights of b7 is that it seems to have fixed the "crash after every round change" problem that Mac players were experiencing.

For those that are enjoying RTCW MP but are having problems scoring points or staying alive, fansite Wolfenstein Xtreme has posted a short strategy that covers both the Axis and the Allies teams in terms of team strategy and general gameplay. Here's a short clip from the Allies strategy:

3 Lieutenants, 4 Medics and 1 Soldier which will be equipped with a flamethrower. They should split into 2 groups dividing the medics equally 2 per team and should attack the war room each team from a location , first giving the Axies some panic and distraction and second try to steal the Top secret documents as fast as you can , exiting the room with the nearest door or exit! Also have 1 or 2 soldiers in front of the carrier of the documents while backed up by a Medic to heal him in any case till you reach the radio room and win the map.
The rest of the strategy guide is available at the link below. Also don't forget to grab the latest version if you still haven't done so, as it is well worth the download. A complete installer with both data and application files is still MIA, but you can grab a Mac-friendly version of the data files at MacGameFiles.
