WWI FPS 'Tannenberg' adds in a Roumanian infantry squad and a new map

Posted by , | Views: 4,976

Tannenberg, the WWI FPS that's actually not bad has recently been updated to include a Roumanian infantry squad and a new map.

Since it adds in the new squad, they also get some traditional weapons too. They come equipped with items like the Mannlicher M1893 rifle. As for the new map, the developer was inspired by battles around Mount Cosna at the Battle of Oituz.

Not stopping there, they've also implemented a new sound system with the use of FMOD to make everything sound better and more realistic.

I actually did a little light reading on the spelling of Roumania earlier, as I've always known it as Romania. Turns out the English spelling of it was originally Rumania or Roumania. 

Sadly, once again the Linux version is having issues. Last time I reported about the game, they had the Unity game engine input bug, now the game crashes to the desktop after the loading screen. I've let them know about it with a bug report. It is in Early Access, so issues are to be expected. Update: They're saying it's an issue with the 396.24 NVIDIA driver, they're recommending the 390 driver series.

You can grab it from Humble Store or Steam.

I freaking love this game! But sadly, I've been having crashing issues with it as well. :/ Hopefully they get it fixed soon.

It seems you were selective on what you read on wikipedia. The adopted english name after WWII is Romania.

This might lure me back in for a few hours again I guess. I'm easily bored by playing the same maps over and over that I get burned out and forgets about the game after a while.

I really like the gameplay though.

nice try where was your selective reading "Modern Romania was formed in 1859 through a personal union of the Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia. The new state, officially named Romania since 1866, gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1877. At the end of World War I,"

QuoteIn English, the name of the country was originally borrowed from French "Roumania" (<"Roumanie" ), then evolved into "Rumania", but was eventually replaced after World War II by the name used officially: "Romania".

Regarding the spelling.

In the middle ages the vlachs/romanians called themselves "rumân" (plural "rumâni"). Other people called them vlachs (and other variations) but then adopted the "rumân" term, adapted as an exonym for their specific language.
Eventually, mainly due to the evolution of the language, the romanians started to call themselves "român" (plural "români") and this form is still used today. Some languages adapted their exonyms to reflect this change, while others did not.

In the 20th century, the term "Rumania" / "Roumania" was still very popular in most languages, but even today there are many who still use it (e.g. french Roumanie, spanish Rumania, german Rumanien, etc).
I think "Rumania" is more fit for a WWI, since it was way more popular in foreign languages than "Romania" was.

I tried keeping it relatively short, there's actually a lot of more info around this change.

Also, as a romanian I'm fine with either spelling, I don't mind the 'u'. My ancestors, however, may not have liked it (after we've gone from "rumân" to "român", "rumân" got another meaning - low class shepherd/countryman, kinda like the modern word "țăran" )
