Just some of my impressions of DOD 1.3 so far:

- Lots of bugs fixed, very good thing. You can now no longer knife people in between rounds, the spawn problems are fixed, the team doors are fixed (which now means parts of the level, like the axis spawn in omaha, can't be entered by the enemy), and lots of little bits and pieces I found annoying. Also, the throw a grenade then change teams cheat has been fixed.

- Subtle changes to existing maps. A few of the existing maps have some subtle changes made to them. Snowtown for example has a few more balconies to snipe from, and the Allied respawn on Hill (the little wood hut) has doors on it that can only be opened by allies, so should help to solve some of the respawn camping. Also, the bug on Hill that let the axis occasionally capture back flags appears to be fixed.

- New maps. Two whole new maps, which both seem pretty damn good. At first they're both confusing as all hell, but it doesn't take long to pick them up, and then you start to realise how well made they really are. With many little shortcuts and hidey holes, these maps are going to be very worthy successors to the likes of Caen and Oslo.

- New weapon models/textures/sounds. The new models and textures and sounds on the weapons are, to put it simply, totally awesome :) Many of the weapons sound a lot beefier now and you really feel like you're dealing out some serious smack. The new weapon models are quite lovely to look at, and the new effects on grenade explosions are very good too. Grenades now explode and leave behind big clouds of smoke, which you can use as cover to advance under, very handy.

- Scoring system fixed. This was one of my pet peeves of the previous versions of DOD, a less than desirable scoring system. Well, I'm happy to say, nearly all the issues with the scoring system are fixed. Player kills no longer seem to contribute to team scores (at least, not that I have been able to determine so far), team scores are based soley on points gained from completing objectives. You also now get the proper points for holding flags as well as capturing them, so it becomes important to not only capture a flag, but hold it to get maximum points. Bonuses are now also properly awarded for completing goals on levels such as omaha (destroying the guns as allies) and hill (capturing the hill as allies). Hopefully this scoring system will also go a bit furthur towards discouraging blatant spawn campers, and as far as I'm concerned, its a step in the right direction.

Another advantage is players no longer take their score with them when they change teams. Previously if you had scored 60 points for your team, and changed teams, that 60 points would then become part of your new team's score. This no longer happens, which will (for one thing) make running comps a lot less painful :)

All in all I'm very impressed with 1.3, and considering it is only a minor release, they have done a helluva lot with it. Can't wait to see 2.0 :)

i cant be sure, but i just downloaded dod full on dial up, the agn files site said it was 46 meg (which it was) and the last full dod install was 80 meg, now ive gone to open it and got a bad crc check, it says expected 103710624 (103 meg) size returnerd 46596096 (46 meg) so it looks like the file u guys put up there's size is out by 60 meg or so

i dont mind it, although unfortunately i think DoD will be just like cs - good in its early years but just get worse and worse as it grows old.

the new guns n stuff look nice but are waayyy too big, the german grenade for example, is so big that you can only see about %30 of your screen !@#$@.

and the new sounds that go with them, they are nice but it just doesnt feel like your'e killing someone, just clicking a mouse or something.


personally, id like to see what people think of Annihilation, *hint hint* but unfortunatley i dont think its going to happen
