Installation for stock gametypes, Conquest TDM and Demolition
-------------------------------------------------------------
Copy the following files to your "Call of Duty\main" folder:
wcanka_awe_v1.4.3.pk3
wcanka_awe_v1.4.3_soundaliases.pk3


Installation for PRM 4.0
------------------------
Install AWE for stock gametypes (se above)
Download and install PRM 4.0.
Copy wcanka_awe_v1.4.3_prm_4.0_addon.pk3 to your "Call of Duty\main" folder.


Installation for Merciless Blood Mod beta v.5
---------------------------------------------
With the addon in this release the farting is turned off and the painscreen has been hardcoded to
80% of the original intensity.

Copy the following files to your "Call of Duty\merciless" folder:
wcanka_awe_v1.4.3.pk3
wcanka_awe_v1.4.3_soundaliases.pk3
Merciless_main_v5_upgrade.pk3
wcanka_awe_v1.4.3_extra_gametypes_for_merciless.pk3


Installation for clients (optional)
-----------------------------------
Copy wcanka_awe_v1.4.3_soundaliases.pk3 to your main folder.
This is just a mod with the soundaliases. You'll need it on the the client to get the wind sound
while parachuting, the plane sounds and the explosion sounds from the skyflashes.


Cookable grenades
-----------------
Copy ONE of the following files to your "Call of Duty\main" folder (merciless folder for merciless):
_cookable_grenades.pk3 		// cookable grenades with normal damage.
_cookable_grenades_prm.pk3	// cookable grenades with PRM damage.

Make sure you set scr_awe_cookable_grenades to 1 to get the cookable grenades to work properly.
(Merciless uses cookable grenades by default so you only have to set the cvar if you run Merciless.)


Override grenade count
----------------------
To override the grenade count with scr_awe_grenade_count you have to install cookable grenades from
AWE or you will not be able to set a higher value than 3.


PTRS41 Anti Tank Rifles
-----------------------
Install _modified_ptrs41.pk3 if you plan to use the PTRS41.
The default PTRS41 has a fire time of 0.5 seconds and an explosion radius of 64 which means it will
create a _lot_ of smoke(=lag) but only kill on a direct or close hit.

The modified version has a fire time of 6 seconds and an explosion radius of 200.


Random maprotation
------------------
Enable this by setting scr_awe_random_maprotation to 1.

This will read all entries in sv_maprotation at the start of each game and set sv_maprotationcurrent
one of them by random.

Be aware that you either have to specify the gametype for each map in the maprotation or for none.

For example:

set sv_maprotation "map mp_brecourt map mp_carentan map mp_depot"
... and ...
set sv_maprotation "gametype tdm map mp_brecourt gametype tdm map mp_carentan gametype hq map mp_depot"
... is valid while ...
set sv_maprotation "gametype tdm map mp_brecourt map mp_carentan gametype hq map mp_depot"
... is not.

If you want to use the same map with different gametypes you have to specifiy the map in the map rotation
for each gametype. For example:

set sv_maprotation "gametype tdm map mp_depot gametype sd map mp_depot gametype hq map mp_depot"
... this maprotation will only play mp_depot but will randomize between tdm, sd and hq.

When you start up the server it will always play the first map in the rotation but as soon as that map
ends it will rotate to a random map.


Cvars (cvars and descriptions have moved to awe_default.cfg)
----------------------------------------------------
See the included awe.cfg for more info.

- awe.cfg is an example config file with quite sane value and it's a good start.

(This version expects you to have one of the cookable grenade mods installed.)


Overriding cvars for gametypes and/or maps
------------------------------------------
Since I also use an improved version of Ravir's cvar handling code you can override the settings
for specific gametypes and/or maps by adding the gametype and/or mapname the cvar.

Example:

set scr_awe_mortar_hq_mp_carentan "1"	// will override
set scr_awe_mortar_hq "2"		// which will override
set scr_awe_mortar_mp_carentan "3"	// Which will override
set scr_awe_mortar "4"

In the above example all maps, except mp_carentan, will have 4 mortars unless they have gametype hq.
All maps, except mp_carentan, will have 2 mortars when gametype is hq.
The map_carentan will have 3 mortars for all gametypes except for gametype hq where there will be
only 1 mortar.


Know Issues
-----------
Yes I know the C47 is not a bomber. It's the plane that drops the airborne soldiers.
But I don't want to change the name of the cvar's now since that would cause problems for
people upgrading from erlier versions of AWE, so I have to live with the shame. ;)

Grenade cooking will fallback to non-AWE mode if you touch an MG42 or a PTRS41 while you start
cooking the grenade.
