Wolf MP 2 Installer Problems, Dedicated Server
12:47 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Late yesterday IMG brought you news of the release of Return to Castle Wolfenstein Multiplayer Test 2. Now some users are reporting "corrupt pak file" errors due to problems in the MP Test 2 installer.


It appears that the pak files are not actually corrupted at all, and that the simplest workaround is to trash your old Wolf MP directory before installing Test 2. According to a belated .plan update by programmer Graeme Devine:

I've not gone through and fixed all the niggles I want to get done, but hey it's there....


issues:


* You need to nuke the old test before installing and running this one.

* SMP doesn't currently work and is disabled by default. Don't turn it on.

* This is not a fully optimized build.

IMG Forum users had already discovered the installer workaround; look below for their discussion.


In more welcome news, Devine also announced the release of a dedicated Wolf MP Test server for Mac OS X:

There's also a separate command line dedicated server since that's been requested quite a few times.
Wolf MP Test 2 can be had at the links below.
