  1. I have an issue I responded the Swift Water Rescue to a person drowning and the people got out of the car but they couldnt get in the water and the guy died.

    One of the three persons in the car is a rescue swimmer. He can enter the water ;-)

    I updated the first post with some tips and tricks:

    General tips and tricks:

    • Vehicles can be towed by the police. Just select a police officer and click on the vehicle.
    • You can dispatch units either with the button or by clicking on a free area anywhere on the map with the left mouse button.
    • The "shift" key changes the priority of some commands. For example it helps you picking up the valve and entering the DLK.
    • You can also transport uninjured people in the RTW.
    • If you don`t manage it to finish an event look for objects or persons on the map that have to be transported.
    • Rediricting the traffic works best on streets with multiple lanes in each direction. The end of the redirection should be near the orignal path of the cars redirected. Othewise they will delete themselves.
    • The stations Tiergarten and Mitte (BF, FF) arrive at first on the scene in most areas of the map.
    • In ERS Berlin you have only a limited amount of water and air. Keep that in mind!
    • When a homicide occurs it is really important to secure evidence. Especially weapons!
    • When confronted with a hazmat situation try first to find the source of contamination and seal it.
    • The doctors car automatically escorts the ambulance to the nearest hospital. Just enter the RTW with the doctor and then send both units home with the "Back to Base" button.
    • Animals can be transported in the KLEF. Firemen can pick up dead animals.
    • In the mod directory XML/bfreeplay.xml you can find a file where you can change the frequency of events, the ingame time and the weather.

  3. The mod does not work for me, im running 911-First Responders, I AM launching through the ELS Berlin shortcut, the shortcut then says the mod is upto date and i start the game...

    Once loaded its like:

    Mine looks the same =). That IS the ERS Main menu. Just click on ERS Berlin and start the first or second mission.


  4. Dear Community,

    after a long period of waiting, we are now ready! We publish the community version of ERS Berlin today. We received a lot of feedback and fair comments after showing a first playable version of our modification on four game stations from 5. till. 12. June 2010 at the Interschutz in Leipzig. In the last few month a lot of work was done to achieve an attractive and as much as possible bug free version for the community release. On September 24. 2010 a limited beta test was started, which revealed a lot of bugs that we fixed afterwards. I will use this place to thank again all beta testers for the invested work! After some debugging sessions in the last few days our Updater and load balance system was finished and tested positive, so that we are ready to rumble.

    You can download the setup file of the Updater here:

    http://s.ers-berlin.de/67 (Server: ftwebsite.de)

    The Updater carries about the download and installation of our modification and keeps it up-to-date. The necessary steps should be self-explanatory ;)

    You can use the following threads in case of questions and remarks:

    Allgemeine Diskussion / General discussion

    Technischer Support / Technical support

    Support - Spielinhalte / Game content

    Technische FAQ / Technical FAQ

    We wish a lot of fun with ERS Berlin!

    Representative for the whole ERS team I want to thank all involved people, that made this modification possible! Certainly I have to appreciate the team members themselves, which immolated a lot of leisure time for this project and made it that, what it is today.

    Have fun guys ;-)


  5. Yeah...but he also says that there may not be a workaround for some strange assignment error in the engine :/

    The problem seems to be that EM4 can only handle a limited amount of prototypes loaded at the same time.

    In ERS we pushed it to the limit - so sometimes when you play long enough and call too many units the game crashes :-(.

    There is still quite allot of vehicles to come guys and a good few scripts and more equipment.. This will still be a little while. :) The beta still has at least 30 cars left to add.

    No. Not every vehicle will be added to the game. We already have too many prototypes in game. Some vehicles are planned only for missions (there will be no missions in 1.0 )


  6. What's an Open Beta version?

    Wikipedia.org :

    "Open and closed beta

    Developers release either a closed beta or an open beta; closed beta versions are released to a select group of individuals for a user test, while open betas are to a larger community group, usually the general public. The testers report any bugs that they found and sometimes minor features they would like to see in the final version"

    Official "Emergency and Rescue Simulation Berlin" topic

    http://www.ers-berlin.de

    Features:

    * New missionscript-based freeplay mode

    * New map

    * New vehicles

    * New GUI (General User Interface)

    * Multilanguage (german / english)

    You can download the mod here

    Okay, let's go through this step by step:

    1. Download the setup.

    2. Run the setup, you do NOT need to install this in your Emergency / 911 game folder, just let it install where it wants to.

    3. Once that's done, run the "ERS starten" program. You find this either on your desktop, start menu or under C:/program files/ERS Berlin. A prompt will open, where you can select either ERS Berlin, or regular Emergency 4. It will tell you that the mod hasn't been downloaded yet, and ask you if you want to download it.

    4. Wait for the download to finish.

    5a. If you're running EM4, you can now click "Start Game" in the same prompt used to download it.

    5b: If you're using 911: FR, it seems that this won't work. Start the game the normal way, then go to "Mods" and activate it like any other mod.

    This topic is free for general discussion and questions regarding the mod


  8. That's interesting! Is that mod already out? Or is it possible to download the script what makes that possible? I need to test that by myself :)

    I think the mod uses this script:

    http://www.emergency-forum.de/thread.php?threadid=10823

    But it has some bugs. Civil cars near an emergency vehicle try to drive to a position on the right in front of the car (vector). If this position is on the sidewalk everything looks good and works well. But for example if this position is behind a crash barrier the civil car will search a position, where it can get behind the crash barrier and drive that way. It looks unrealistic. Also some civil cars get stuck in objects on the sidewalk and can´t keep on driving.

    But try it yourself

  9. I've suggested them before but here are my major suggestions in one place:

    -replace boat unit with a Swift Water Rescue truck(either with the boat on top or on a trailer, using the script. Of course would require a new boat too)

    - replace the crane with a heavy rescue ( the back of the unit does rotate so it would be like the crane with the boom facing backward)

    - USFS firefighters in hotshot gear

    -LAX firefighters in ARFF gear

    -Specialized hazmat firefighters(decon/ medical/ and fire control, maybe different protection level suits, and SWAT in hazmat gear?)

    -Firefighters in water rescue gear which can move fast on land and swim out to rescue but not dive (would look a lot like USAR firefighters...probably not possible)

    -A reset script for the trailers behind the fire station

    I really like the idea of putting heavy rescue 56 in the mod.

    Here is are some pictures: 1

    2

    I personally thing the yellow faun crane doesn´t fit in the LA mod.

    I also propose to give swat units the possibility to drop down from helicopter.

    I have already made a script for it (which can be downloaded on my homepage and does not have the bug with the THW bag). So it would not be much work to bring that feature in the la mod.

    Regards
