Based upon the original idea of Rocket Arena! 

To put two or more players in a map. All pickups have been removed, the player spawns with all weapons and a limited amount 
of ammo. The BFG is not included! 

In the true nature of RA, Rocket/Grenade jumping & falling down does no damage to self. 

Gameplay: Weapons are balanced for up to 8 players, meaning that if you have more players, you might run out of ammo! 

Tips: Something fun that you can't do in RA3... 

Sneak up on a person and frag him with chainsaw, fists or flashlight. 

Kamakazi over to another person with a primed grenade, blow him up and not take any damage to self. 

Your teammate in tdm can really frag with the chaingun? Drop it to him and he gets more ammo... 

-----------------[ Installation Instructions ]------------------ 

Unzip the content of MiniRA.zip to your Doom3 folder with paths. 
That means; after you unzip, there should be a MiniRA folder inside your Doom3 folder where your Doom.exe file is. 
To clarify, thats: /Doom 3/MiniRA/ 

To start the mod: 
To play MiniRA you have to start the mod first. You do that by selecting Mods from the main menu and selecting MiniRA. 
You can also do it by starting Doom3 with +set fs_game MiniRA 

To join a server: 
There is no way of sorting servers by mod in the in-game browser, so you can only look for the right server names. 
Alternative is to use the game browser ASE and filter Doom 3 server that has fs_game set to "MiniRA". 
ASE: http://www.udpsoft.com/eye/ 

When joining you get a missing pak file warning: 
Either you dident start the MiniRA mod, the server is running a different version of the mod or not running the mod at all. 

To start a non-dedicated server: 
To start a non dedicated server you use the menu just like vanilla Doom 3. 

To start a dedicated server: 
I added a custom MiniRA_Dedicated.bat file under the MiniRA folder, run it to start a dedicated server. 
It uses the MiniRA_Server.cfg in the same folder to setup server rules, you can edit it with notepad...
