About the Mod

Here we have the latest installment of my Zero Mod series (all previous versions are obsolete) specifically designed for single player and yes, it's also multi-playable. In fact, a few modifications are just for multi-player. Please note version 1.0 (this version)is unfinished. The human modifications are only 70% done and the alien and predator modifications haven't been started yet. But, with that said, the mod plays perfectly fine. Most of the changes are more subtle ones, more in depth modification would have caused problems in the single player campaigns.

Please note: This mod will also work with most, but not all custom single player maps. I cannot provide a list at this time of which maps will work, and which ones will not, but any custom single player maps found in the "Ultimate Mappack" series will most likely work.

   2)  Modifications

   I've divided up all the modifications into sections to better be referenced.

   ------------------------------------
     Basic Non-Specific Modifications
   ------------------------------------

    - The menu has been given a complete new overhaul.
    - Doubled the amount of blood and gore.(any more would no longer look realistic)

   ----------------------
     Alien Modification

   -------------------------

    No modifications done in this version.

    - The gloves have been skinned from green to black in the first person view.
    - Skinned the HUD. (Heads Up Display)

    - The electricial sparks have been increased when using the hacking device.
    - The EXO has been given some new sounds.
    - Increased weapon firing distance for all human weapons.(had to do this because in some of the
       larger custom multiplayer maps I was always shooting at someone when they weren't in range)
    - Marine Weapon Modifications:

    -- Knife --
         new skins: no
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           The knife can now deploy a boombox which plays "Rob Zombi's Dracula". This is ideal for
           those areas where you need to sit and wait. (like long elevator rides, and torching open
           doors)


    -- Pistol --
         new skins: yes
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           The pistol has been replaced with dual pistols, and increased the rate of fire, increased
           the ammo amount from 12 to 16 (32 for both guns), decreased damage and tweeked accuracy to
           make sure this weapon was not too overpowered.


    -- Shotgun --
         new skins: yes
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           Changed from a pump action style to a semi-auto style shotgun. Replaced the buck shot ammo
           with frag ammo (the same thing just new FX affect), and Replaced the slug ammo with an
           explosive tip slugs, and also improved the slug fire shell ejection.


    -- Pulse Rifle --
         new skins: yes
         new sounds: no
         Other modifications: yes
           Now fires explosive type bullets (ideal for killing facehuggers), decreased accuracy and
           weapon damage to make sure this weapon was not overpowered.


    -- Grenade Launcher --
         new skins: no
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           Replaced the spider grenades (yes, I know they were cool, but we all know they were
           pretty much useless) with explode on impact napalm grenades (my personal favorite
           grenade round now), and gave the EMP explosion a new sound, but you need to have a sound
           system with good bass.


    -- Flamethrower --
         new skins: no
         new sounds: no
         Other modifications: no

    -- Minigun --
         new skins: no
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           Increased the rate of fire by a lot, in attempts to make it more realistic, also
           decreased weapon damage and accuracy to make sure the weapon was not overpowered.


    -- Sniper Rifle --
         new skins: yes 
         new sounds: yes
         Other modifications: yes
           Increased time between shots by a little and increased time it takes to zoom in and
           out by a little.

   ----------------------------
     Multiplayer Modification
   ----------------------------

    All the other modifications apply except for:

    - The Knife deploys dynamite instead of a boombox, only one per spawn.(Be careful, it's quite an
      explosion)
    - The Pulse Rifle can only carry 4 grenades instead of 8.
    - The Smartgun will not lock onto targets in multiplayer at all. (so feel free to use it again,
      you will not be called a noob)
    - Added new taunts for the human males. 




   3)  Installation

      To install the "Zero Single Player Mod v1.0", follow these steps
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

     Extract the "ZeroSPModv1.0.rez" file out of the "Zero Single Player Mod v1.0.rar" file. 

     Place the "ZeroSPModv1.0.rez" file in your "Aliens Vs. Predator 2" folder.
      (the default is "c:\Program Files\Fox\Aliens Vs. Predator 2")

     Start the game.

     In the Game Launcher's Main Menu select: "Options".  

     Enter (copy and paste, if you like) into the "Command-Line" field:    -rez ZeroSPModv1.0.rez

     Check the box marked "Always specify these command-line parameters" to always load the mod.

     To return to the Game Launcher's Main Menu click: "Ok".

     In the Game Launcher's Main Menu select: "Play". 

     The mod is now installed. 



     Please note: you can also put the mod in a folder named "customs", but the "Command-Line" would
     have to be the following:   -rez customs/ZeroSPModv1.0.rez

     or

     You can also put the mod in a folder named "mods", but the "Command-Line" would have to be the
     following:   -rez mods/ZeroSPModv1.0.rez





   4)  Special Thanks


   The following people deserve special thanks.

     Rogue   for letting me use one of his AVP artwork as a backdrop in the main menu. (the queen) 

     x-M-x   for posting news about this mod on avp2files.com

     Thanks to anyone who hosts this file on the internet for download.

   I would like to thank the following people for making the following maps that I took screen shots
   out of for backdrops in the menu. Please note I did take the screen shots myself.

     DM Terraform  made by  Ken "Dutch[K]" Hawver

     =ARC= Hadleys Hope  made by  =ARC= Hevoc

     DM Industry  made by  Bastard




   5)  Known Bugs


   The following are bugs and errors that I am aware of and at this time cannot be fixed.

    -- The deployable boombox and dynamite have a tendency to fall through levels on occasion, some
       levels more than others.

    -- If you look carefully you notice the boombox and dynamite are hovering two inches off the
       ground, this was done to help alleviate the falling through the level problem.

    -- The dual pistols have a tendency to lock up when tapping the fire button, if this happens
       switch to the knife, then back to the dual pistols and it'll be fine.

    -- The dual pistols will not show up in third person view. It will only show up as a single
       pistol.

    -- On the dual pistols, the two muzzle flashes are not perfectly timed but this is the best it's
       gonna get.

    -- The Grenade Launcher's napalm grenades may not detonate properly on all surfaces, this seems
       to be a problem with the level design, not my mod.


   If anyone finds any bugs or errors not listed, please notify me.




   6)  Future Versions


   If I ever do another version, I'll try and finish the mod but only if this mod becomes very
   popular and there is a demand for it.

   If I were to do a newer version today, I'd finish skinning Marines, a few more weapon tweeks, then
   I'd start on the predators, doing new skins, new sounds and modifying their weapons. I don't have
   many ideas at the moment on how to modify the predator weapons but I do have a few. As for the
   Aliens, I can't really think of much other than new skins. These are just ideas at the moment and
   they probably won't happen.





   7)  The Making of "Zero Single Player Mod v1.0"


   All the skins and modifications I did myself, unless specified in "4) Special Thanks" section.

   The custom sounds I used came out of the following:

    - "BF2142" game
    - "NOLF" game
    - "HL" game
    - "Fear" game
    - "Ed, Edd n Eddy" TV show

   There's a few other sounds that I can't account for and where they came from. If I accidentally
   used/stole one or two out of someone else's mod, I apologize. I really did lose track of where the
   sound files came from.

    Author                : 00
    Other files by author : "HHO Skin" This was a custom skin I made for HHO a long time ago but,
                                                 please note: I believe this version has a problem
                                                 with parts of the torso and/or head disappearing.

                            "ZERO MOD v2.3 beta" This was my first attempt ever at a mod. This was
                                                 supposed to be a total conversion but it came out
                                                 like crap. I don't recommend you even bother
                                                 downloading this.

                            "Ultimate Mappack 1" This was my first attempt at a mappack. This was
                                                 quite popular, but it was made obsolete by UMP2.

                            "Ultimate Mappack 2" This was my second attempt at a mappack. This was
                                                 very popular and still is.

                            "Zero Mod Special Edition" There were a few versions of this mod, all
                                                 were beta/tester versions. This mod was originally
                                                 designed for single player, but in the later
                                                 versions it ended up being multiplayer only. This
                                                 mod also had a fair number of modifications done
                                                 to human weapons, but due to complications I
                                                 decided to pull the plug on this mod. I still
                                                 might do something in the future with it.

                            "Server Fix" This was a fix I made for when the AVP2 master server list
                                                 was radomly loading slowly, but that problem has
                                                 been resolved. The download and use of this is no
                                                 longer necessary at this time.
