    Once upon a time in a clan far away, There was a game called Infiltration, it was a mod for unreal. There was nothing cooler. Spawn nads, throwing an empty shotgun at someone and they would reaload it for you while you killed them, body parts everywhere, Proxy mines Complete bloodbaths etc. I am sure all the old timers remember the FUN we used to have. I ordered my Shirt & Disk 2 years ago, I received them last week and fired it up. After 25 hours in the last couple weeks, I have uninstalled and turned my disk into a coaster. It is a sad and tragic mess, FUN was left out of the game. I have to admit that I have moved beyond INF to Desert Combat and enjoy the flying far too much. But I have to say that I hope those that are happy and still playing INF take it to the next level. I for one will not be a part of it anymore. For those of you who are wondering or care this was FixXxer.
    Peace
    :stick:

    LoL yeah... after like 2.6 and all... ummm Infiltration is definately NOT the same as it used to be. It has become a team game for people that want realism.

    Back in the Unreal days it was all about jump strafing and shooting peoples heads off literally which was great fun :D. I have to admit, I do miss it a little it was so much fun, I loved it when some guys head flew off like 40 feet in the air :lol: and the AT4 and the flashbangs.

    A couple of us old timers are left, sorry to see another go. Only a few of us to pass the torch now.

    Haven't tried Desert Combat. Heard it sucked. INF 2.9 takes some time to get used to. Give it some time.

    If I want unreality, there's a lot of other offerings. But I'm running this one. I for one, am very happy with it.

    Thanks.

    If I had to choose between old INF and new INF, I'd take new INF (And I've been playing INF since it's first release). I love the gameplay. I don't like most of the maps with 2.9, but there are some really good ones thrown in there.

    Now all it needs is a prettier engine and I'll be happy :)

    Putting a little work into tweaking and learning the game

    Personally, IMO Infiltration 2.9 and Desert Combat for BF1942 are two very different kind of games. They also play very different from each other and a comparison between the two doesn't work very well in my opinion

    Currently, I am an off-line only player. But I think Infiltration version 2.9 is incredible !

    The default settings for bots makes for some weak game play at first. But I took the time to create my own teams, set their AI levels & loadouts and learning my favorite EAS maps. Now, I am getting much better matches off-line and enjoying the hell of it.

    It seems the more time I put into learning the game, the more fun I'm getting out of it. I'm not a very experienced on-line player, so my words are more for the casual player or the new to Infiltration player. Putting a little work into tweaking and learning the game really improved the experience for me. I only play version 2.9 now, and have un-installed the previous version without any regrets.

    Personally I find 2.9 ridiculous amounts of fun.

    Could it be that our definitions of "fun" differ and that rather than leaving out the "fun" they simply put in more of what I find "fun" and less of what you find "fun"?

    Shame you prefer the CS style gameplay over the Inf realism, a lot of people see it the other way around. But there are plenty of games around that have the type of gameplay you enjoy, so loosing Inf shouldnt be a problem.

    Fun is in the eye of the beholder. There's no "right answer" to the question of what is fun. If arcade gaming is what's fun for you, that's great. If tactical realism is not fun for you, there's nothing wrong with that. Do what's fun for you, no point in doing otherwise. But to proclaim "FUN was left out of the game" is to claim your subjective sense of FUN is universal. Newsflash: it's not. The game's plenty fun for a lot of people. Far more fun than it ever was. If it's not fun for you, that's something else. Not our problem. Move on.

    Hey FiXXX, long time no see. Sorry your not a fan of the new style, it takes some getting used to, but when you get down to it, deep down into the nuts and guts of it. This new version makes for some of the most tense and fun matches outside of Unreal INF, though Unreal INF was NEVER this tense. But they are diffrent animals, I still have Unreal INF installed on my Mac at home, if you ever feel like living the old days gimmie a holler, you have my ICQ. If you want to try 2.9 again and need pointers or help I can do that too, hmm I have DC v.2 or something, maybe time to upgrade if thats where your at, be fun to get a game in :)

    Yeah, I'd bet that jumping from 2.6 to 2.9 was probably quite a bit of a shock. Sort of like moving from Grand Theft Auto to Grand Theft Auto III. Sure you drive cars in both of them, but they're quite different.

    Perhaps playing 2.80, 2.85, and 2.86 in between would have prepared him better.

    Hmm, where did Beppo post a reply in this thread? Unless you're confusing me with him. Which I take as a compliment. :D

    It's a shame that inf 2.9 didn't have some kind of INF-lite Mutator available for it. Something that gives you the realistic weapons, with the standard UT movement system for some old-school bot kill'n. Actually i'd just be happy if i could play some of the standard UT maps with 2.9

    Actually you can play UT maps w/ 2.9, just select a DM game mode, and they all appear on the map selection list. And UT CTF maps will appear in the EAS & Specialist game modes too.

    Actually they only show up if the UT paths are listed within the Infiltration.ini file. The installer can do this for you but the default install will not do this automatically cause it only screws up the map list within the game.
    So search for the following paths= entries within the infiltration.ini file:
    [Core.System]
    ...
    ;Paths=../Maps/*.unr
    ;Paths=../Maps/*.u

    simply remove the semicolons ";" and the UT maps will be made available within INF too.

    That's handy to know. I only deleted Inf, not my UT folder so I've still got vast quantities of old Inf maps. What happens if they've got the same filenames? Do the new versions get priority?
