File 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. ENJOY :)

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.

* 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 arkanis50@yahoo 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.
