Installation Instructions:
----------------------

The files:

"platinum_war_mod_client_download_file.pk3"
"platinum_war_mod_svr_file.pk3"
"platinum_war_mod_svr_file_clan_logo.pk3"


...copy them to this folder:  ".../call_of_duty/uo/"   


IMPORTANT!!!  You must delete the old PWM files:

"platinum_war_mod.pk3"
"platinum_war_mod_clan_logo.pk3"
"platinum_war_mod_weapons.pk3"


The mod has new filenames, so that the clients only have to download 76KB of files!





The "english_example_config.txt" file includes the mod CVars in an example server config.


You must copy the complete content of these files into the server config file:

(Example: "my_server_start_config.cfg" or something similar)
Start the server with the "my_server_start_config.cfg" file.


!IMPORTANT!... you CANNOT have other mods in your UO folder!!
(or any other older versions of Platinum War Mod).




Hint for Clan Logo Text: 
---------------------------
Please take note that after v5.775, the clan logo text is NOT in the "platinum_war_mod.pk3" pk3!

It's in a new pk3 called "platinum_war_mod_clan_logo.pk3"
(open it like a .zip file) in which you change the following:

("platinum_war_mod_svr_file_clan_logo.pk3:  /maps/MP/gametypes/_clan_logo_text.gsc")
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^                       ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^       
  this file is really a .zip file        and      here is the logo text!

// ******** FAQ's *********

- Q: No airplane sounds on custom maps?  (mp_peaks,  etc.)
- A: The custom map has its own soundloadspec file (Ex: soundloadspecs/mp/mp_peaks.csv)
     There must be a new file for the map with the name and proper soundlinks to the MOD's airplane sounds.

- Q: Player lighting glitches on maps with snow?
- A: You don't have the client-file for the MOD.  Try enabling auto-downloading when joining the PWM server.

- Q: Game crashes on the first shot in the map?
- A: The Linux dedicated server has old, buggy files.  Please update to the latest files.
