Assassination is a new gametype, based on a rather old idea - protect and escort a VIP to safety without them being eliminated. This is similar to the Counter Strike gametype, although the VIP can select their outfitting. Each round a player from the Red team is chosen to be the VIP, and they must stay alive at all costs. If the Blue team eliminates the VIP before they reach the Extraciton Zone (EZ), or the VIP doesn't get to the EZ in time, then this will result in mission failure for Red. ENJOY :)
============================================================ Title : Assassination Date : 19/01/03 Version : Version 1 Filename/s : gt_ass.zip Author : Arkanis Email : [email protected] Description : Assassination is a new gametype, based on a rather old idea - protect and escort a VIP to safety without them being eliminated. This is similar to the Counter Strike gametype, although the VIP can select their outfitting. Each round a player from the Red team is chosen to be the VIP, and they must stay alive at all costs. If the Blue team eliminates the VIP before they reach the Extraciton Zone (EZ), or the VIP doesn't get to the EZ in time, then this will result in mission failure for Red. Assassination uses the Extraction Zone (EZ) and spawn points from Infiltration, so you can play it on almost every INF map. Scoring: VIP Escapes: 2 points for Red VIP Escapee: 10 points for VIP VIP Assassinated: 1 point for Blue VIP Assassin: 5 points for Assassin Blue Eliminated: 1 point for Red Blue Eliminated and VIP Assassinated at same time: 1 point each Hopefully this will be the first of a series of "assassination" style games, with the possibility of a gamepack containng a few variants of Assassination just for SOF2. Before anyone asks... no I don't play counter Strike. This gametype was originally going to be called 'Armed Escort'. It was later named Assassination since that name was much cooler... and yes the two games are similar. BTW, I am aware the word "ass" for a gametype is amusing to some people. :) ============================================================ * Design Notes * As stated above, this gametype uses Inflitration spawn points and maps that are compatible with Infiltration. You do not need to change or add anything to your own custom maps to support Assassination as long as they can do INF (assuming you have proper Infiltration spawnpoints and an extraction zone). There may be a couple of maps that Assassination will not work with, these are the Inf levels where the Blue team are defending the case, as opposed to the Red team. All of the standard Raven Inf maps have been tested and work, although a couple may not challening to play on, i.e mp_hk1 and mp_kam5. I think you can also make spawn points with the name "ass" on a map and players should spawn in at those points in an Assassination game. Below is a very rough guide to how Assassination plays on the standard maps (personal opinion may vary): Maps: MAP NAME DESCRIPTION RATING COMMENTS mp_shop 'The Shop Under Siege' 5/5 Challenging but fun mp_col1 'Columbian Jungle' 5/5 Challenging but many paths to travel mp_finca 'Finca Housewarming' 4/5 Fun, fair bit of CQB mp_hk1 'Hong Kong Hotel' 1/5 Teams spawn too close and right near EZ mp_raven 'Raven Office' 3/5 Lots of hiding and CQB, but short mp_air1 'Airport Warehouse' 4/5 A bit short mp_hk2 'Hong Kong Streets' 5/5 Challenging and long, good for sneaking mp_kam3 'Kamchatka Factory' 4/5 Good but can easily get lost mp_col2 'Storming of Columbia' 5/5 Challenging but fun mp_hos2 'Hospital' 4/5 Hard and can easily get lost mp_jor1 'Jordan Market Seige' 3/5 Short but many routes mp_kam4 'Kamchatka Thrust' 4/5 Good mp_kam5 'Kamchatka Depot' 2/5 Very short mp_pra2 'Prague Street Siege' 3/5 Short mp_shop2 'The Shop Invasion' 4/5 Can be a bit short Another thing to remember is that Assassination will not work properly on maps where the Red team spawns at their own extraction zone. Why? Because Red team would instantly win. All standard Inf maps in SOF2 will work. If you are playing Assassination on a custom Inf map, you will not get a picture of the extraction zone up on the briefing screen. To do this you will need to make a diretory in your base directory called "gfx\menus\levelshots". Then copy the original extraction photo for the custom level, i.e. "mp_shop_inf_extraction" then rename it to "mp_shop_ass_extraction" and add it to this folder. If you don't have an original extraction photo for that level then make your own, or you can leave the map without one. If you find any bugs or have feedbackon this gametype then feel free to email me at: [email protected] ============================================================ * Play Information * Game : Soldier of Fortune 2 Type : Multiplayer Supported Modes : INF Requires : SoF2 Full Version 1.03 or higher (You can try it out on 1.02) Bugs: : None known. Contact [email protected] to report bugs or for feedback. ============================================================ * Installation * Unzip (extract) the file "gt_ass.zip" to your SOF2\base\ directory, with directory structure intact. It is important that you keep the directory structure intact; otherwise the mod will not work. In WinZip, make sure the box "Use folder names" is ticked. Similar programs should also have this feature. On most machines your SOF2 directory should be located at: 'C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\. This assumes that the game is install on C drive, if your game is installed on another drive, such as D drive, then it would most likely be 'D:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix'. You should now have the file 'gt_ass.pk3' in your SOF2\base\ directory. Load SOF2MP.exe to start the game - you should now see the new "Assassination" gametype listed. ============================================================ * Credits * PlanetSoldierofFortune.com - Your source for SoF\SoF2 news, information, and content.
