Hi all,

This is my first post on the site; I've been meaning to sign up for a while but school got in the way, yada yada yada.

Anyways, today I want to see if anyone is also interested in finding some original Return to Castle Wolfenstein Alpha builds.

Information remains incredibly scarce about these builds, but we do have two videos; one from E3 1999, and one from E3 2001 - naturally, the one from 2001 is much higher quality.

E3 1999

E3 2001

There are also several screenshots floating around the web, but I have not hit the post limit to use the image uploader. You can find these images quite simply by searching for RTCW; one image shows an alternate Elite Guard model [the female enemy], another shows some kind of prototype knight in a "zoo" map (showing off several other NPC prototypes, HL2 Beta fans will know of zoo maps all too well :D ], and there are also several maps made in the 1999 or 2001 builds that show alternate HUD textures and especially different animations; the final animations of the game are actually less fluid!

So, does anyone have any leads, links, or further information regarding these betas? I'm not necessarily asking for a download to the files - that would be amazing, but I understand that I do not have enough posts - but I would like to see if anyone has knowledge of these builds also; especially in regards to the engine. (differing lighting i.e vertex instead of the newer pre-baked lighting engine, etc)

Thanks all!
