Wolfenstein MP Demo, Map

As promised last night, the Return to Castle Wolfenstein multi-player demo has now been released, and we have a local copy with mirrors of the 66.3 MB download online. This demo contains the Beach Assault map familiar from the test demos, as well as the new Checkpoint map called "Trench Toast." The latter is also available separately as a 3.9 MB download for owners of the full game, again from our local copy with mirrors. Update: A no-install ZIP-file version of the map is now also available for folks having difficulty applying the installer.

I got the same problem. Basically ping times for MP demo version are getting worse since the retail version was available. I used to have at least 3 or 4 servers with sub 50ms ping time. Now all of them are above 100ms. I was wondering if those with the retail version can reply here whether there are a lot of retail servers available with good (sub 50ms) ping times. I need to know this to decide whether or not to buy the game.

The servers on the list appear to have a decent ping, but when I get into the game the game is unplayable! Pings 500-900, and I keep getting the unplugged picture saying "Connection Interrupted". I watch others trying to play and they are having the same problem they say, this really makes me not want to buy the real game! Also, I had trouble getting servers to show for a while, just sat on "Waiting for master server response" or whatever. What a piece of sh1t, even if this is temporary...

To add to Xain's post:

Yes, the first release was a multiplayer <i>compatibility</i> test -- it was designed to ferret out any problems with different hardware configurations that could crop up so that the developers could make sure the final product was as compatible as possible.

The second release was also a test, and while it was also a refined compatibility test, it was also tweaked to improve gameplay. Those who download the test are generally experienced, hardcore players, so they know their stuff -- if there are any problems with gameplay, these players are going to find them. The developers wanted to see how gamers used the classes and their abilities and wanted to make sure that any problems in the gameplay were ironed out.

This release today is an actual demo, not a test, and is designed to give those people who didn't buy the game a chance to try it out and see if they'd like to get it.

shul - what are you talking about?

If you mean that is this the 3rd multiplayer demo, the first two were tests, not demos. This represents the real mccoy (although I couldn't see any difference between test2 and the full version for the beach landing map).

Cheers,

For those that are having problems with the map pack installation:

Not sure why it's not working (it's worked for most people), but we're sending out to mirrors right now, including Blue's, a special no-installation file, which is essentially the pk3 file of the map that you can drop into your directory. This should help. Should be up on sites shortly.

I downloaded the map and it keeps telling me that the full version of Wolfenstine isn't installed.
Does Wolf have to be in it's default install directory for the map installer to find it?
Annoying...

What will come next? "Return to Castle Wolfenstein multi-player demo of the game *after* it got to the shops"? maybe "MP demo of Wolfstein *before* it went obsolete"?

what is going on?
