GR:AW Official Modding Guides
Posted by Rocky on Thursday, June 29 2006

Over the next few days there could be a release of Official GRAW Modding Guides to help fans further modify GR:AW with new features and assets.

As announced in our forums here, GRIN have pledged to support the GR:AW modding community with official modding guides taylored to exactly what modders need to know.

Laser GR:AW
Posted by Rocky on Tuesday, June 27 2006

Paintball fans looking to take Ghost Recon to the next level might want to take a look at Laser GR:AW, which features real tanks and armoured vehicles to make the experience as real as possible!

Laser GRAW

"Had enough of going to war on your TV or monitor? Then why not take a look at LaserWar, who'll be running some "real life" versions of GRAW missions later in the year. Rather than straight-forward paintballing style skirmish, this is a proper tactical experience run by a bunch of ex-army chaps with enough working military hardware (Humvees, APCs, tanks, etc.) to take over a small country."

Ubisoft Staff have already spent the day running around the massive 500 acre arena and given it two thumbs up. The event kicks off in March next year so check the site out now and see if your clan is ready to take virtual war to the next level with Laser GR:AW!


GR:AW 1.16 Update Released!
Posted by Rocky on Wednesday, June 21 2006

GR:AW Update 1.16 (named mp map pack 1) is available from our downloads page here. (127Mb). Word is that this is a cumulative patch so you do not need to install the two previous patches if you have not already, and also this time there is not a seperate patch for retail or direct to drive, it's all in one patch.

As posted recently there are over 50 updates in this pack, most of which are already recieving good feedback...

"The fixes are great. You can run after reload, aim down when prone, and so on. AA still shows alittle jaggies but it is better than what we had. Deathmatch maps are nice, (in) the night map, you are able to shoot out the lights to make it darker." Judge Recluse.
