|RtCW SP - Unofficial Patch|
= Return to Castle Wolfenstein Single-player v1.42d Unofficial Patch =
= Created by Knightmare =
This is a simple patch that fixes the startup crash caused by newer video drivers, (erroneously attributed to Windows 7).
It adds fully native widescreen support. Support for "nVidia Surround" and "ATI Eyefinity", via in-menu custom video modes and a few other fixes and tweaks. It also fixes the crash at the map level transition from RtCW SP map "Dam" to RtCW SP map "Paderborn", (aka village2).
It is based on the v1.41 source released by John Carmack in September 2010. However, as this release is not made or supported by Gray Matter, id Software, Activision or Bethesda, please don't ask them for support with this.
# Installation Instructions
You should back up the "WolfSP.exe", "cgamex86.dll", "qagamex86.dll" and "uix86.dll" files in your Return to Castle Wolfenstein folder before installing this.
This can be done simply by making a subfolder called "backup" or "old" and moving the above files there. Once you have done this, just extract the download into your Return to Castle Wolfenstein folder.
# Please Note
This patch includes modified menu files in the "sp_pak4.pk3" file. These files were edited to add the new "scralign" attribute to various objects, to change how they scale in widescreen video modes. "System.menu" and "ingame_system.menu" were also edited to add the new video modes, anisotropic filtering support and hardware gamma support.
Mods or map packs which change the menu files will need to be edited to replicate these changes, or they won't work correctly with this patch.
