Hey all, just playing online on SOF2 multiplayer, and for maps like Italy I recieve this message "Couldn't load map italy", is there anything I need to download to help me with this problem? I used to play this so much ages ago, just getting back into it now but I have a few teething problems. Cany anyone recommend anythign to help? Cheers:cool:
Yeah, Download the map or maps click
Thanks, I've downloaded the map. Do I need to do anything with it or will it just work now?
If the server is pure (sv_pure 1) you'll probably need to download some files via auto-download, If not then no you dont need anything more.
dont forget to unzip the file :d
I unzipped the file and now the items are on my desktop... Still can't load italy! I've also downloaded something called a "gold patch" and have unzipped it, but nothing seems to have changed! Help!

firstly if you are playing in version 1.00 and want to continue to play in version 1.00 do not install the gold patch. the maps go in the base folder in the sof2 folder. only extract them so they are a .pk3 file a simple guide to playing both versions (if you have version 1.00 to start) install game copy game folder to a diffrent location eg c:\sof2 so you have 2 installations 1 is C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix second is C:\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix install gold patch to the default location C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix and your done. if you want to play version 1 just goto the folder in the c drive and if you want to play gold goto the folder in program files. maps custom maps are simple to install they go here for a default location. C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\base basically they simply go in your base folder. most maps come zipped up with a readme so use winzip to extract them to the base folder. maps must be in a .pk3 format, so do not extract them beyond the pk3.
If you have gold already you dont need the gold patch, but if not extract the setup.exe from the zip an install it. For the map, Put the map pk3 in your base folder default "C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\base" for gold that's "C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix GOLD\base" Note: If you install the gold pactch you will only be able to play on gold servers.
