Current Banimod Release : Version 1.0.0 Sep 22 2002
What is it?
Banimod is a server-side mod which fixes many of the existing bugs and cheats in stock RTCW. For admins, banimod provides many new powerful features for controlling your servers. For players, banimod introduces unique new gametypes, player classes, and game modes. Every feature in banimod is optional and can be completely disabled if desired.

Because banimod is completely server-side, players don't have to download anything in order to play on banimod servers.

Cheat fixes?
Banimod default configuration is exactly the same as stock RTCW 1.33, except that the following bugs, cheats, and exploits are fixed:
  • The sniper no-recoil cheat
  • The "unkickable players" cheat
  • The ff-off team-switch cheat
  • The vsay cheat
  • The same-team disarm dynamite exploit
  • The engineer mg42 exploit
  • The mg42 suicide bug

    If you run an RTCW server, you can just "drop in" banimod into your existing server and not have to worry about these bugs, cheats, and exploits anymore. Nothing else about gameplay will be touched.

  • For admins
    Banimod provides many powerful features for server admins to make running servers much easier.
  • Administrators may grant "semi admin" access to give individuals limited server control without having to give full rcon access.
  • Individual maps may be locked out. Tired of mp_beach? Lock it out!
  • Individual votes may be locked out. Want to enable kick votes but disable map and gametype changes? It is now possible!
  • A powerful game menuing system is available.
  • Admins may allow players to vote to change gravity, speed, and other physics of the game.
  • Llamas and muppets making your pub servers intolerable? Anti-spawnkilling and anti-camping mechanisms are available.
  • Extended verbose logging of game events is available.
    ... and much more!

  • For players
    Banimod expands RTCW with entirely new gametypes, player classes, and game modes.
  • Neil Toronto's "unlagged" code is integrated into the server, which makes the game playable for narrowband clients.
  • New game types - Goldrush, Assassin, King Of The Hill, Dynamite the Hill, and Ultra Checkpoint.
  • New player classes - Commanding Officer, Spy, Scout, Rocket Pilot
  • New weapon modes - instagib, headshot-only, poison knives
  • Low grav gameplay is now possible though the cvar g_airAccuracy and g_persistentgravity
  • Dynamite can now be shootable by the engineer who dropped it

    And there's lots more! Read the Player Guide to find out!
