Saturday, 25 October, 2008, 19:21 - VietcongVietcong is one the most underrated and overlooked FPSs ever released. Yes its release in 2003 saw some significant issues but these were quickly patched. This class based game gives us an awesome singleplayer experience and a variety of multiplay game modes including co-op. Wide-screen is supported and with todays systems you can play the game in it's full glory.

Two expansion packs were released. Fist Alpha and Red Dawn.
The add-on offers a single player campaign, new maps and new multiplayer game types. As far as the new weapons are concerned, we can mention the M-14 gun, Claymore mines or the Russian machine gun named Degtarev DPL-2.
The second official add-on for Vietcong, which was released on the Internet for and on several gaming magazines throughout Europe. Containing one new single player mission, Vietcong Red Dawn features an all-new "cooperative (COOP)" experience in the multiplayer mode of the game, in which the player takes the role of a Vietcong unit, fighting through completely new multiplayer maps. This add-on was developed in the spare time of our employees, and was published in March 2005.
The Multiplay modes are quite diverse. The usual Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Last Man Standing modes are there, there are a couple of varieties of Capture the Flag, an objective style gametype called Assault Team Game where both teams have different objectives and Co-op where it's a squad of humans on a mission verses the game!
Patches and Red Dawn free download - here -
• Vietcong must be patched to v1.60 before installing Red Dawn (Fist Alpha doesn't matter)
• Backdoor.Ranky notifications when you try to load v1.01 of the game are false-positives
-patching the game fixes this issue
Initially I want to look at the co-op mode then progress from there.
I've set up three basic servers:
-Vietcong Fist Alpha
-Vietcong Red Dawn
Vietcong 2003 trailer
HradBa anti-cheat v206 is enabled on the server. Vista users cannot join due to a false positive with directX 10, more details soon. HradBa v206 can be downloaded from the server and will be available to download from this site soon.
Vietcong: Purple Haze was a pack released that combined Vietcong with Fist Alpha.
Vietcong 2 was released in 2005
(at this stage I won't be settting up a server for VC2)
