Jihad! is fairly simple. One player is chosen to be the "Infidel". The Infidel gets a single bullet weapon (AK, outfitted Secondary, or outfitted Pistol, based on a server cvar) and a knife. Everyone else gets a single grenade (frag or flame, based on outfitting), which they may arm...but not throw. The objective is to blow up the Infidel. If you succeed - you become the Infidel
There are only two ways to score Blow up the Infidel (a default 3 points, plus 1 point for the kill) Be the Infidel and shoot those trying to blow you up (1 point each) There are no points awarded for blowing up non-Infidels, and there is no suicide penalty. The first Infidel is the first person to blow themselves up at the start of the round. If the Infidel suicides (cowardly leaps off a cliff) or disconnects, a new Infidel is selected by the same method.
============================================================ Installation information for users and server administrators is presented in the middle of this document. ============================================================ Title : Jihad! Abbreviations : jihad Version : Final 1.0 Date : 02-03-2003 Filenames : jihad.pk3 Author : ReverendTed Email : ReverendTed@planetsoldier.com Gametype Homepage : http://www.planetsoldier.com/jihad/ ============================================================ * Description\Rules * Description : A new multiplayer gametype for Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix. Objective : Become the Infidel and stay alive as long as possible. To become the Infidel, self-immolate close enough to the Infidel to kill them. Scoring : Points are scored when the Infidel kills a non-Infidel, or when a non-Infidel kills the infidel. No suicide penalty is assessed for self-immolation. No points to non-infidels for killing other non-infidels Rules : The first person to kill themselves becomes the first Infidel. The Infidel gets a single bullet weapon and a single knife. The Infidel weapon is determined by the "gt_jihadweapon #" cvar, where # is "1", "2", or "3". 1: "Primary" - Infidel gets AK (Large games.) 2: "Secondary" - Infidel gets outfitted secondary weapon 3: "Pistol" - Infidel gets outfitted pistol (Small games.) Non-Infidels get a Frag or Flame grenade, depending on their selected outfitting. (Smoke and Flash selected gets you a Frag.) Non-Infidels may arm the grenade, but not throw it. You can NOT put the pin back in. Non-Infidels may use Team Say to plot strategies without the Infidel hearing. If the Infidel commits suicide (falls off of something, goes spec, or disconnects), Infidel status is up for grabs. The first person to kill themselves becomes the new Infidel. The radar icon indicates the Infidel is above or below you by having only the top or bottom half of the icon visible. Server Cvars : gt_jihadweapon # (See description above, in "Rules") gt_jihadDefendPoints # (Points for killing Infidel. Default "4") Notes\Bugs : To prevent a certain outfitting error, the respawn delay has been upped to 3.5 seconds. You can click "attack" to signal for respawn, but be careful not to keep clicking once you respawn with that grenade in your hand! If you become Infidel after respawning with a grenade (flame nade usage has this risk), simply detonate yourself to respawn with the selected Infidel weapon. I recommend mp_hos1 and mp_barn (new DM-compatible version included) for enjoyable Jihad! action. ============================================================ * Play Information * Game : Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix Type : Multiplayer g_gametype Modes : jihad Requires : SoF2 Full Version 1.02 or higher : (You must have the patch installed, so you can see the HUD icons.) Players : As many or as few as you like, but at least 4 is recommended, depending on the size of the map. Mapping Support : Jihad! requires no custom map changes. Any map that supports DM already supports Jihad! ============================================================ * Construction * Base : Original creation, based on Raven Software MP SDK source code. Editor : Notepad, baybee. Buildtime : About two weeks, and then another two weeks, including testing. Known Bugs : None. However, there is one thing you should look out for. If you prime a flame nade, are killed, and the flames kill the Infidel after you've already respawned, you'll need to immediately kill yourself to get rearmed with the Infidel weapons. (There is no penalty for this, and you will remain Infidel.) Features : Action, Suspense, Drama, Jihad! New Textures? : Yes (I changed the objective icon to a little target.) Also, new flag texture. New Sounds? : Yes. The score sound is -=SoF=- LimiT. Yes, he is insane. Custom Soundtrack? : No Compile Machine : AMD XP 1800+, 512MB RAM, 40GB HD, GeForce4 Ti 4400 Compile Time : A few seconds ============================================================ * Installation * 1) Extract jihad.zip to your SoF2 directory, using folder names. !Important! Do NOT extract jihad.pk3 to your SoF2\base\ directory. !Important! When installed, it should be in the SoF2\jihad\ directory. !Important! Ie: C:\Games\Sof2\jihad\jihad.pk3 * To Play * Once the mod is installed, simply joining a server running Jihad! will load the mod for you. Note: Jihad! is a mod, unlike KtMwtB, which is an add-on. While KtMwtB only required that the files be placed in the SoF2\base\ directory to run, Jihad! must be loaded as a modification from the Mods menu (Method 1), or loaded from the command line (Method 2). Method 1: -Start SoF2MP.exe -Click the Mods menu button (crossed hammer and wrench) -Select "Jihad!" from the list and click the arrow to load the mod -Click the "Start Server" icon and click the gametypes until "Jihad!" shows -Pick your map and go. Method 2: -Start SoF2MP.exe with the command-line option "+set fs_game jihad" ie: "c:\Games\SoF2\SoF2MP.exe +set fs_game jihad" (This command-line is necessary for dedicated servers to run Jihad!) -Start server as normal * Uninstallation * Simply delete the \jihad\ directory in your SoF2 directory. ============================================================ * Editorial Note * The usage of the term "jihad" to denote a "holy war" is found nowhere in Islamic literature. Its usage as such is primarily a product of the Western media. In literal terms, "jihad" means "to strive" or "to struggle". In Islamic teachings Mohammed states that greatest jihad is the struggle of a man against his own evil influences. The gameplay represented in "Jihad!" is not representative of any Islamic doctrine, but rather satirizes the Westernized view of a relatively small population of extremists who practice such acts (in direct violation of the teachings of the faith they profess to be defending). ============================================================ * Credits * PlanetSoldierofFortune.com - Your source for SoF\SoF2 news, information, and content.
