Equador Mountains

Ecuador Mountains by <<<ALIEN>>> is one of my favourite CTF maps. Very RMG feel to it with the classic 3 ways of attack. Centre, Left using a tunnel or right through the mountains. Highly recommended for CTF
Thanks to -[FC]- FUN ZONE for introducing me to this one.

This is the long awaited release of the ultimate SOF2 Demo Viewer by Infrequent. ReFrag soon became an essential tool for SOF2 movie makers and you will see it in the credits of all the best SOF2 videos.
ReFrag2 is the new improved version with even more features and a much improved user interface. ReFrag2 is not just a tool for movie makers though, it's also an excellent stand alone demo player that lets you analyse every players move from every angle.
Unfortunately ReFrag2 does not support v1.00 but if you play Sof2 Gold this is a must have tool.

Playing SOF2 v1.00

Some time ago when re-installing SoF2 and before adding the gold patch to bring my 3 year old CD up to date, I noticed there were lots of servers still running version 1.00 I decided to do a duplicate SOF2 installation in a second folder on my PC, but running v1.00. I have to say its like another dimension with many hundreds of players never seen on the gold version. You can add v1.00 in about 4 minutes, why not give it a try:) There are more people playing RMG than on gold!!

Playing SOF2 v1.03

Some months after SoF2 was launched a number of modifications were made to the original game which included bug fixes, new weapons, Punkbuster anti cheat software and additional maps. This update, called the Gold Patch changed your original game to v1.03. It was intended to replace to 1.00 version but if you make a copy of your original v1.00 files before applying the patch you can still play both versions.

SOF2 v1.00
Playing SOFII v1.00 (non gold version)  see also.. Playing SOF2 1.03 Gold Edition

There are loads of people playing SoF2 v1.00. Now it's easy to give it a try and still keep your Gold version. If you enjoy RMG CTF there are always servers with lots of players no matter what time of day or night... It's a different world:)
Installing Sof2 v1.00 Posted by He|icon'
(How to play on SOF2 v1.00 servers from your SOF2 Gold version CD)
It takes about 4 minutes to get SOF2 v1.00 up and running in addition to your
normal Gold installation by following these simple instructions.
Remember you can still play Gold so you have nothing to loose by having both versions. The following files and folders are already on your PC (not your CD)

1.) Copy your 'Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix' folder and rename it SOF2 v1.00

2.) Delete gamex86.dll, SoF2MP.exe, SoF2.exe from your NEW SoF2 v1.00 folder

3.) Delete pb, osp,  and  rocmod folders from your NEW SoF2  v1.00 folder

4.) Delete update101.pk3, update102.pk3 & update103.pk3 from the
base folder

5.) Replace gamex86.dll and SoF2MP.exe
with the files in this zip file 1.7mb

6.) Create a new desktop shortcut to sof2MP.exe in your new SOF2 v1.00 folder

That's it, You now have SOF2 v1.00 in addition to your Gold version
If you are using a firewall you will need to tell it to allow this new version of SOF2

If you have any problems...
1. Check that you replaced gamex86.dll and SoF2MP.exe
2. DELETE your sof2mp.cfg file from the base/mp folder (and any other copies of sof2mp.cfg in any other v1.00 folders). This will force the game to create a new default config file that will have none of the settings acquired from playing gold.
You will have to re-do binds, key settings, connection type - the default is 33k :)
There is a line in your config file that allows or disables downloads.
seta cl_allowDownload "0" make sure its set to '0' not '1'
You can find it by opening sof2mp.cfg in notepad by searching for the word 'download'. If you still have questions or problems you can post on our Forum
Files needed to play SOF2 v1.00
Your NEW SoF2 v1.00 MAIN folder will need the following files and folders

Your NEW SoF2 v1.00 BASE folder will need the following files and folders

Admin Mod for SOFII v1.00 Download


Playing v1.00 What's Expected of YOU?
There is no Punkbuster on v1.00 but cheating and cheats are despised and will not be tolerated. Admins are always on the lookout for cheats in order to keep their servers clean and enjoyable places to play. Please note that config 'tweeks' are generally NOT permitted on v1.00 servers, these include such things as Overbright Bits and FOV settings. Only adjustments made possible in the options menu should be considered OK. v1.00 is a great place to play, PLEASE ABIDE BY THE SERVER RULES. Playing SOFII v1.00 is great fun. If you enjoy RMG maps its about the only place you will find regular games on well populated servers.

Some points to remember...
There is no Punkbuster on v1.00 so admins have to be far more vigilant in order to keep cheats out of the game and off their servers. In gold we tend to rely on PB to to this for us. If you have been playing SOFII Gold for some time you may have built up certain skills, a good aim, fast reactions and above all intuition. So what happens when a skilled player from gold turns up on v1.00 - He's unknown, the guys who have come to know him and how good he/she is aren't around. But hey who's this guy with a 23/5 ratio? Well your certainly going to be under scrutiny. You should not expect any less from a decent server. Unfortunately you may even end up with a ban even though you are totally clean. Remember you are unknown on these servers.

OK so what to do about it...
First rule on v1.00 as in Gold - Be respectful - don't flame people. Most good servers will have a forum where you can ask why you were banned. Don't post their immediately after being kicked. Sleep on it and compose your words well. You will achieve nothing except to make yourself look stupid if you go in with an aggressive attitude. State your case in a respectful manner, explain how long you have been playing the game. Give details of your setup, video card and monitor, maybe offer a copy of your config file. V1.00 admins are aware that mistakes happen, admins are human and WE ALL make mistakes. Getting banned may not be the final decision - but it certainly will if you go in with an attitude. I have great respect for a number of v1.00 servers and their admins. Admins are now becoming aware that skilled players from gold are turning up on their servers, as with all things it takes time to build up a trust between friends. If in general you behave as above you should enjoy some great games on v1.00. IF not then enjoy your ban!

Single Player Maps for Multiplayer Servers (Using RPM Pro Mod)

Many 'Single Player' maps can be played 'Multiplayer' on servers
running SOFII v1.00 RPM Pro 3.31. and RPM Pro 4.0 As these maps are intended for the single player game they may be buggy and feature only one spawn
point. However by using a modified .ent file multiple spawn points can be added making many of them very playable. Read More....
