Taking the popular mod to a new level, adding Admin functionality, sound effects and player in-game information, this update is attempting to give the player a more rounded experience.

Neller, June 2005. firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------------------ 2.0 Installation ================ Easy - export the contents of the ICS2.2 zip file into an ICS 2.1 directory. Join a 2.2 server. Start fragging. Note that your Sof2 must be ver 1.03 Gold and you need to have installed upto ICS 2.1 first. As always, I claim zero responsibility for what this may do to your PC, your ICS game dir, your average ratio and general skill level. By installing the file you are agreeing to this. Sucker. ------------------------------ 3.0 Using It ============ 3.1 Additional Console commands ------------------------------- There are 2 commands: 'RefC' - Admin / Referee commands 'ICS' - Commands for everyone to use Once typed it, the console will list out all of the commands. To use a sub command simply type it after the main command. For example, for a referee to use the Finish command, they would type: 'RefC Finish' Note that all most all of the commands are accessible via the new improved menu system. One feature to highlight is the ICS screenshot. This will save your screenshots in the normal directory but with better names. (I've re-binded my screenshot key to this command) 3.2 Chat Tokens and Speech -------------------------- There are additional chat tokens and speech. To use, place the following into your chat lines and binds. Warning! Chat can be extremely annoying, and if you were to abuse it on my server, I'd punish you for sure! Note: These can be seen from the Player Menus > Tokens. #h - shows Health - as numbers #H - shows Health - as text #b - shows Health - as red bar #a - shows Armour - as numbers #A - shows Armour - as text #B - shows Armour - as red bar #l - shows last person you killed #L - shows last person who hurt you #G - shows your location #f - shows nearest friend (if available) #s0 - shows stat: Grenade kills #s1 - shows stat: Sniper kills #s2 - shows stat: Melee kills #s3 - shows stat: M203 kills #s4 - shows stat: number of Headshots #s5 - shows stat: number of Backpacks picked up #s6 - shows stat: total Damage Given #s7 - shows stat: total Damage Received #s8 - shows stat: total Shots Taken #s9 - shows stat: total Shots that you hit @n - where n is 0-99, adds in sounds 3.3 New Game types ----------------- King Of the Hill (KOH) KOH is a base capture game. Any CTF map can be used to play this game type. All you have to do is run for a base, capture it (using your use key) and then defend it as the points build up. Simple. Admins be aware that points build up quickly so you will want to change the scorelimit for this gametype to a higher figure, e.g.. 100. An opposing team member simply has to walk across the base to 'save' it and make it free. Hold The Ball (HTB) HTB is simple - someone holds the ball and gets team points for as long as they can keep a hold of it - drop it and you get no points, and after a while it will warp to a player on the loosing team. Admins be aware that points build up quickly so you will want to change the scorelimit for this gametype to a higher figure, e.g.. 100. !Warning! there are occasions when the ball might just disappear - I'll admit I don't know why. Sorry for the hassle and just restart the game. Sorry. Classic Capture the Flag (CCTF) CCTF is CTF, but to score your flag needs to be 'at home' 3.4 Referees and Clan Members ----------------------------- Referees and Clan Members are recognised by ICS via their GUID. The GUID is stored in a .list file within the ICS directory. There are 2 methods to get someones GUID into the file: (1) Edit the file to add their GUID - mine is entered as an example. Delete it unless you want me to have access ;) (2) Via rcon / server access, enter AddRef / AddClan followed by the player ID of the person. This is permanently done. To remove someone you must go into the file and remove their GUID manually. Note: Some server setups might not allow the game to write to the file. If problems occur, it is always best to manually add a GUID to the list and upload the file. 3.5 New Server-side CVARS ------------------------- Note: Most of these can be set via the console RefC command or the Ref Menus g_ICS_chatSpeak - Stops people using chat g_ICS_colourNames - Allow coloured names g_ICS_blindTime - How long to punish by blindness? g_ICS_penaltyTime - How long to punish by penalty? g_ICS_countDown - Have time countdown g_ICS_clanPics - Show them? [UNSUPPORTED: see below] g_ICS_motd_1 - These are the six lines of text allowed for the g_ICS_motd_2 - message of the day. Colours are allowed in g_ICS_motd_3 - these lines. g_ICS_motd_4 g_ICS_motd_5 g_ICS_motd_6 Game type: HTB g_ballBeepDelay - Sets Ball ping / flare time (set to 1 sec for madness!) gt_ballDropTime - how long the ball is dropped before it warps to someone Game type: KOH gt_ICS_baseCapTime - Time necessary to capture the base in King of the Hill 3.6 New Client-Side CVARS ------------------------- Note: Most of these can be set via Player Menus cg_ICS_teamInfoType - Draw Team info - 0 = none / 1 = text / 2 = bars cg_ICS_screenShot - take auto-screeny - 0 = none / 1 = scoreboard / 2 = medals / 3 = both cg_ICS_chatPrefix - text in front of the chat cg_ICS_drawTime - draw the clock | 0 = no , 1 = 12hr , 2 = 24hr cg_ICS_drawTimeWhere - where draw the clock | 0 = top right , 1 = right , 2 = left cg_ICS_hitHead - draw headshot indicator? cg_ICS_hitKnife - draw knife slash indicator? cg_ICS_drawSpec - draw Spectators | 0 = no , 1 = left , 2 = right cg_ICS_drawLocation - draw Location | 0 = no , 1 = yes [UNSUPPORTED: see below] cg_ICS_playSounds - play Bonus Sounds | 0 = no , 1 = yes cg_ICS_extraHitText - draw extra text in the console | 0 = no , 1 = yes cg_ICS_headshotText - what headshot text you want to see 3.7 Unsupported Features ------------------------ Here are some features that I built into the game that could cause problems or might not work 100%. Use at your own peril! ClanPics Clan pics are icons that float above players heads in game. If a player is a clan member then, if the CVAR g_ICS_clanPics is set, the pic will be displayed. To get this working for all players on your server, they must download the clanpic via a pk3 file that you will have to set up. Included within the ICS2.2 zip file is an example Clan Domination picture pak. Open the pk3 in an extractor of your liking, take the pics I have in their, edit them (same size!) for your own Clan tag. Re-save as a new name - note it MUST BE AFTER pak3.pk3 alphabetically to work. That is why I have zzz in mine. Place on your server, and force your server to Pure with download enabled. That's it. I think. Worked for me. Client Location cg_ICS_drawLocation This will draw on your screen your current location. Should do - for some crazy reason that I could never figure out, sometimes it just would refuse to do it and would draw someone elses randomly. So I have 'hidden' the command in the background, although it is possible to use. Just set the cg_ICS_drawLocation = 1 and it should turn on. 3.8 Problems ------------ I am sure there are problems. If there seems to be a real show-stopper then get in contact and if it is serious enough ICS 2.2v2 might come out. If not, then I apologise - you'll have to live with it. Remember, it's just a game! ------------------------------ 4.0 Credits =========== Big up to me! This is my first mod - hope you all like it. Took some time, but I made it in the end. Mr White = Mr ICS. Check out http://www.planetsoldier.com/ics/ |D| Kenshiro - for most of the testing and helping me out with bits. Some ideas were his!
