Hi, just getting started. Got the game, downloaded Gold V.3 Edition, and some internet games, I can't join cause I'm still not up to date. What should I be picking up? Also, is it wise to have the "Auto Downloading" turned on? Cheers!

ok so you bought the game ..... you got the patch ...... now you can download OSP and Rocmod, those are the most widely used mods that i know of ...and if you leave auto dl on ...there are things you will end up getting that you may not want.....chose your servers wisely. do some homework on where you want to play. find out if it is a clan run server and what their website is, so you can find out what they are running. and besides...auto dl takes sooo long.

auto dl is ok to download osp though, takes just 1 or 2 minutes :)

also, i would have autodownloading turned off, because you get a lot of crap by joining some servers, like flags and skins with clantags on them and that sort of bs. if you can't join a server because you are missing a file, you will know, because it kicks you off, then just turn on auto download on to get the missing files (small mods mostly)

To True what does the message come up when you cant join the server

You probably need to enable (and update!) punkbuster as well (punkbuster = anti cheat program)...

To do this:

* start sof2 (i assume the goldpatch (= 1.03) is already installed) * open console * type pb_cl_enable (i do this by head) * quit sof2 * goto http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-sof2.php and download pbweb.exe * place pbweb in your sof2/pb folder and run it

The 1st time you run pbweb it may take awhile, but in the end you should be end up with an up2date version of punkbuster

Punkbuster does its job pretty well, but it isnt very userfriendly... especially when you are behind a firewall/router... so make sure you read the punkbuster faq as well.

Well, the method described by me works for 99.99% of the people (for some pbweb doesnt seem to work), and it is handy for people who dont know much about computers, routers and firewalls...

But there are more ways to keep pb up2date...

Here's a list of things to do when you get the game:

1. Download the Gold 1.3 Patch. 2. Update your punkbuster. Visit the www.evenbalance.com website, and download PBWEB, or do it manually. Either way, evenbalance has instructions on what you can do. :nodding: 3. Go download a Multiplayer mod, I'd recommend OSP and RocMod. Both are different but are WIDELY used on SOF2. 4. Don't turn autodownload on, it will download things onto your computer you don't want. The downloads are usually quite slow anyways. 5. Make sure your connection and graphic settings are all set... and you're ready to go! :talker:
