Description             : This is a small update for Full Metal Rocket, which will
			  upgrade version 0.2 of Full Metal Rocket to version 0.3.
			  NOTE: You will require version 0.2.

			  This is primarily a code update, which will bring the code
			  up to version 1.03, and add 3 new FMR modes. 

			  “Classic” mode which is the regular Full Metal Rocket RPG mode; 
			  “Grenade Launcher” mode which is MM1 Grenade Launchers only; 
			  “Grenade” mode that is grenades only; 
			  “Alternating Weapons” mode which alternates between the RPG, MM1 
			  and the grenade each respawn.
 
			  These new modes can be selected through the Create Server options, 
			  or via the appropriate cvar. 

			  NOTE: There has been a new server.cfg file included, so if you have
			  altered it then make a backup, or just overwrite it.

			  Read the 'FMR Manual.txt' or 'FMR Manual.rtf' in the 'Documents' 
			  folder for more info.

* Changes in version 0.3 *

Versions v0.3 – v0.21a
---------------------------------
- Updated 1.02 code with 1.03 changes. FMR may be re-written on clean 1.03 
code although since no major bugs have been reported, the code may stay “as-is”.
Report bugs to arkanis50@yahoo.com.
- Rocket speed decreased to 1400 from 1460.
- RPG7 damage increased to 100
- Player speed dropped from 330 to 320.
- 3 new modes added. “Classic” mode that is the regular Full Metal Rocket RPG mode; 
“Grenade Launcher” mode that is MM1 Grenade Launchers only; “Grenade” mode that is 
grenades only; “Alternating Weapons” mode that alternates between the RPG, MM1 and 
the grenade each respawn. These new modes can be selected through the Create Server 
options, or via the appropriate cvar.
- Create Server menus altered to add new options to select game mode.
- Map loading screen now states the game mode being played.
- Code added to fix the ‘Base Gametype’ issue, where custom game types using spawn 
points from other games, like DM, would not properly show up in the game type list. 
A big thanks to ReverendTed for supplying the code for this fix.

* Installation *                

Make sure you have version 0.2 installed in your Soldier Of Fortune directory,
look for a folder called "fmr". If this folder doesn't exist then you do not
have the mod on your system and you will need to download it first:
http://www.sof2files.com/file.info?ID=9361

Unzip (extract) the file "fmr_03up.zip" to your Full Metal Rocket folder, 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. Let the process overwrite an files neccessary as it
will update various documents and readme's with new information.

On most machines your Full Metal Rocket directory should be located at:
'C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\fmr'. 

This assumes that the game is installed 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'.

If you have done this properly the fmr_03up.pk3 file should have been extracted into your
'C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\fmr' folder.

Load Full Metal Rocket through the Mods menu in SOF2, or run the FMR.BAT file to start the 
game. 

Read the 'FMR Manual.txt' or 'FMR Manual.rtf' in the 'Documents' folder for more info.
