Hi all. I just want to know where the thermal vision files are kept in the sof2 directorys, as i want to make a thermal scope for the sniper rifle if you catch my drift. When you use the scope instead of it being a telephoto lens its a thermagraphic lens with zoom capabilitys, like some highend sniperrifles do have, i think this would be a great mod as there are advantages but also disadvantages to it.
(and no dont diss this as a cheat as its not)
If any of you who read this are wicked skinners then give this a try as i would download it for shure
Leon ZNV Vario FX Scope is almost there, close but no cigar

go to forums.ravensoft.com there is a tutorial to make a thermal or nv scope
hi merlin thanks mate but i cant find it anywhere that forum is bleeding massive even when i use the search you couldnt possibly be a pal,mate,buddy,chum and post a link to it could you thanks soooo much
hmmm it seems a few peeps i have talked to think that a thermascope would be considered a cheat why i have no idea isnt war all about having the edge over the opposition look how quick iraq fell to the the better tech' of the western soldiers and no one ever said "nightvision infrared thermalvision what a bunch of cheaters" that battle would have waged on still now if we went in there with an ak47 and an rpg like them
war is about having the upper hand over the opposition whether it be better training or better technoligy then the opposition will catch up with you so you have to dream up better training or better technoligy
sof2 is a war based game there for this rule also applies if you dont move on up you will lose and after 3-6 months everyone would be using the thermal scope anyway (if it increased there frag rate that is on the other hand it might not my belkin n50 increased mine and thats not a cheat yet)
anyways thermal scopes are outfitted on some sniper rifles and to have the choise would be nice along with the choise of an infrared/nightvision scope
i personally consider cheating in sof2 very very wrong anyone who can do somthing a real soldier on a battle field cant then that is a cheat you all know what im talking about eh if it isnt possible in the real world then its a cheat plain and simple

I love your idea of a thermal scope. Seems like if you can have a NV scope a thermal scope is fine too. Good Luck! Wildthing430
What is a belkin n50? Just wondering.
this could turn out to be a good debate as i WILL make a thermal scope
an n50 is a gaming tool which allows you to ditch your keyboard altogether while gaming. it has a bit of a lerning curve to it but when used correctly it WILL increace your frag rate as you WILL be quicker on the draw type belkin nostromo n50 speedpad into google to find pics of it

thermal sniper vision would b gr8 and i agree, it isnt even close to cheating...i dont really fancy using the NV goggles with the sniper cos it sux but thermal sniper scope would b quality......btw....would the thermal scope count as your inventory or would it b literally attached to your sniper scope as a primary weapon.....:confused:
hi this is how it would work ingame heres an example take water water has a shader that makes it look like shiny glistning water
the thermals are the same in a way the game is rendered the same but it goes through a shader program to make it look thermal or for a diffrent look a nv shader program (a bit like looking through colored plastic film in real life) get me
so all i need to do is work out where the thermal shader files are kept in the sof2 directory add them to a crosshair mod and boom a thermal scope if only it was that easy :confused: so if anyone can help me out that would be great as im a bit of a n00b at all this modding and skinning
