Unofficial Guide to Connecting to RTCW 1.33 Servers
6:00 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Last week when id Software released the 1.33 patch for the PC version of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, it created an incompatibiity problem for Macintosh users wanting to join "1.33 pure" servers (the Mac version is currently at version 1.32). However, a recent hack has been found to allow Mac users to play on 1.33 servers and a Mac gamer named Galen Wiley has written a short guide called "Connecting to v1.33 Servers" to help Mac gamers install the hack. It involves downloading a file that includes the required map files and placing them in your Return to Castle Wolfenstein folder.
As with all unofficial hacks, this one comes with a stern warning:
WARNING: This "patch", once installed, prevents you from connecting to 1.32 servers. If you have any favorite servers that are still running 1.32, I'd recommend sticking with 1.32. Remember, this is unofficial, and many things may not work properly. You have been warned.According to various posts in the IMG forum, the hack successfully allows Mac gamers to join 1.33 servers without any problems.
Also you may not be able to join servers if PunkBuster is not previously enabled.
There's no word yet on whether Aspyr Media will be releasing an official 1.33 patch for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. But we'll be sure to keep you posted.
