Dafoosa's Unofficial Patch v1.4.2 -> v1.4.3

ce.exe v1.4.3 Features:

- Removes the 2000 limit on the 'viewdist' command line parameter. Draw the whole map every frame! Recommend ~ 5000

- Removes the zoom-out limit in the F9 view

- Removes the zoom-in limit in the F9 view (not so useful except for those extreme machinima closeups)

- Removes 100 ... 500 limit on the Field of View (FOV) F12 command line parameter (250 is default). Warning dont go much outside the original limits.

- Lengthened the vehicle popup distance so vehicles appear in the distance sooner. (NB CE must be set to high detail for this to work)

- Fixed CE hanging intermittently upon exiting the torpedo boat. This makes maps with torpedo boats now fully playable in multiplayer.

- Fixed Font scaling at higher resolutions so text does not overlap and it can be clearly read

- Similarly fixed the version display on the level load screen so it can be read at higher resolutions.

- Show teammates as a "T" symbol in the tab map (Todo: Hide phantom player re dedicated servers)

- Fixed bug in the scripting function "REFGetPlayerInx(PlayerNr, Inx)" to allows it to handle undefined PlayerNr's



CE really looks spectacular @ 1280x1024 with full Anti-Aliasing and a viewdist of 5000

Why the fuck would you update a game nobody plays. although these updates are pretty cool but why why would you release this.

all u need to do now is fix the name limitation from 10char to at least 20chars. the in game name needs to be able to use lowercase letters as well as uppercase letters.

We're having a Codename Eagle revival so I for one am happy to see someone still looking after it.
Keep up the good work!

I can't believe there is someone else who still remembers how awesome CE is!

I arrived at this site after finding the original CD in my celler and re-installing. It is far better gameplay than any of the battlefield games I now own (battlefield 1942, battlefield 2 and battlefield 20whatever) Are there any servers out there and would anyone be interested in me hosting one on my dedicated server for a laugh?

Great work with the 1.43 patch btw!

Cheers,

Ed

There is something nice about the original CE gameplay over BF2 etc isnt there.

Anyways, the best way to find a CE game online is to use Gamespy Arcade

www.gamespyarcade.com

All CE servers, even private ones (so long as the server is not behind a firewall) will appear on Gamespy Arcade.

Hey Dafoosa,

Great to see someone has modded this game, still play it on LAN every now and then..

How did you manage to make the changes? someone finally manage to get the source code, or you hex edit etc?

Dafoosa said...

No, I dont think you will ever see the source code for CE, only ppl like John Carmack (aka doom, quake etc) are that giving. What I did was I reversed engineered the binary in assembly language form. My tool of choice in this regard is Olydbg.
