Man Down - 15/10/2002

Man Down is a mod (modification) for Raven Software's game,
"Soldier of Fortune II : Double Helix".

It is an attempt to make SoF2's multi-player aspect *even* better
then it already is, with out totally changing everything about the game.

If you wish to help out with Man Down, please contact
about anything you wish to contribute and/or help out with.

Source code is available at the Man Down website.

Quick Setup
1. Make sure you have upgraded SoF2 to version 1.01.

2. Download from the Man Down website.

3. If you have a previous version of Man Down, it is highly
   recommended that you DELETE it before installing a new version.
4. Using your favorite unzip program (WinZip, WinRar, WinACE), 
   unzip the directly to your 
   "<path>\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix" directory 
   (where <path> is usually "C:\Program Files") making sure 

5. Load up "Solider of Fortune II - Double Helix - Multiplayer".

6. Click on the mods option (The crossed "Hammer & Spanner" icon).

7. Select "Man Down" and click on the "Arrow" in the top right of 
   the screen ("Play Mod").

An alternative method to steps 5-7 is to double-click on the file
"<path>\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\mandown\mandown.bat".
This will load up Man Down directly.

Another method is to create a shortcut similar to the following :
"<path>\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\SoF2MP.exe" +set fs_game mandown

For information on new client commands / cvars, see client-readme.txt

Quick Server
1. Make sure you have upgraded SoF2 to version 1.01.

2. Download from the Man Down website.

3. If you have a previous version of Man Down, it is highly
   recommended that you DELETE it before installing a new version.
4. Using your favorite unzip program (WinZip, WinRar, WinACE), 
   unzip the directly to your 
   "<path>\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix" directory 
   (where <path> is usually "C:\Program Files") making sure 

5. Edit server.cfg in your mandown directory

6. Start the server with dedmd.bat

1. Make sure you have upgraded SoF2 to version 1.01.

2. Download from the Man Down website.

3. If you have a previous version of Man Down, it is highly
   recommended that you DELETE it before installing a new version.
4. Unzip the directly to your SoF2 directory.

5. Edit server.cfg in your mandown directory

6. Start the server with ./dedmd

For information on new server commands / cvars, see server-readme.txt
Its also a good idea to read the latest 'changes' section of this readme.txt.
The 'server-readme.txt' also has a pretty good "Examples" section.
	ie. Setting up pistol / sniper only games
	    Running RMG no fog / RMG half-fog maps

There are two ways you can go prone -
1. Bind a key to +button14 (manually or through menu)
2. Set cg_momentaryMovedown to 0 (manually or through menu) and duck twice.

While prone :
* you CAN shoot most weapons
* you CAN reload most weapons
* you CAN NOT change weapons
* you CAN NOT throw grenades or use the knife
* your vision IS limited up and down
* you CAN NOT turn fast - upping your sensitivity WILL NOT change this
* you CAN roll left or right by using lean left or lean right
* you CAN strafe slowly using strafe left or strafe right
* you CAN crawl
* you are NOT affected by knockback from getting shot, blown up etc

Over all, prone works *pretty* well.
The only big thing to fix now is to stop peoples legs going through
walls all the time and to make you move less like a tank while etc.

Bot support
All I did was enable the included code, then make it so they could 
reload, go after game items etc. They don't work well, but they're 
fine for testing, which is why I enabled them in the first place.

They require .wnt files for each map you wish to play on, like 
Jedi Knight II. As such, I've included the file "Bot waypoint tutorial.doc"
from the JKII SDK, which describes how to make a .wnt file. In addition to 
the commands it talks about, you can also use Attack/Alt-Attack to add/remove 
way points. Additionally, it'll create sniper/camp points when using a sniper
rifle and it also notes whether you are ducking, jumping or on a mover.

To actually get a bot in game, you can use the command '/addbot <botname>' 
from the console or press escape and click on the "Addbot" option from 
in-game menu (NOTE : only the local host has access to Addbot menu).

Changes - 15/10/2002
* added clientoption - cg_drawTeamOverlay [0/1]
 	- display team mate health, armor + location info on HUD
* added clientoption - cg_friendlyInfoOverHead [0/1]
 	- display team mate health + armor over their head
* added clientoption - cg_friendlyWeaponOverHead [0/1]
 	- display team mate weapon name over their head
* added server option - g_voteStartDelay [0/1+]
	Do not allow people to cast any votes for this many minutes after map change
* periphery radar added
	- as suggested by ReverendTed, if a gametype item is out of range, it
	will still be drawn on the edge of the radar as a directional indicator
	- in addition to gametype items, any player on your team who is carrying
	a gametype item will also show up as a directional indicator if out of range
* fixed zoom out sound when weapon changes from weapon with zoom function (Sig551/MSG90A1)
	- original fix just checked for changing weapons. 
	New one catches dropped weapons, outfitting changes etc
* added slightly modified version of ktmwtb files to mandown
* changed .arena, .ent & .ant file support
	- .arena extensions are matched up to corresponding .ent/.ant extensions
	ie.	Map: mp_col1, gametype: tktmwtb 
		mp_col1.arena does not contain tktmwtb 
		Load all mp_col1_*.arena files, check for tkwtmtb 
		tktmwtb present in mp_col1_smitty.arena, load mp_col1_smitty.ant
		Another great ideas suggested by ReverendTed!
* added slightly modified version of ktmwtb files to mandown
* added Fragger's female rebel & snow skin, as well as whole LAPD team
* improved entity dumping
	- no longer dumps info on entities with no spawn function
	This means dumped files are *way* smaller and easier to navigate.
	- added 'saveents' command to save current in-game ents
	(either to <mapname>_<gametype>.ent or <mapname><specified>.ent).
	- added 'addent' command to add in entity at current crosshair pos
	- added 'rement' to remove ent at current crosshair pos
	- added 'remallents' to remove ents with specificied classname or classname 
		equal to ent at current crosshair pos
	- hitting 'FireMode' while using "g_mapScripting 1" brings up EntEdit menu
* added gametype option - pickups "limited"
	- Pickups remain in-game, but you are limited to what you can carry
* added server option - g_pickupsLimited [0/1+] (default 1)
	- Pickups remain in-game, but you are limited to what you can carry

Changes - 02/10/2002
* added original pre-1.02 ManDown leaning fix back in
	- 1.02 leaning fix is only used if g_sof2defaults is set to "2" or higher
	The default SoF2 1.02 fix increased the area of leaning check from 12 x 12 x 16,
	 to 12 x 12 x 40. The pre-1.02 ManDown fix leaves the area alone, but adjusts the 
	 start pos if you're ducking. This means that leaning through cubicles in mp_raven
	 is fixed, but you can still lean out all windows in mp_shop etc.
* removed 1.02 version of living / total counters 
	- replaced it with client side ManDown version - same effect, no server code
* added fast weapon ready animation for Sig551
	- resets once you use g_sof2defaults, like m4 animations etc
* fixed bug - following player with viewcams that uses a scope
* improved new outfitting code
	- get the extra non-grenade outfitting slot grenades when you pick up a backpack
	- choosing same grenade type more then once is cumulative 
		ie. m15 twice = 4 m15 grenades (instead of just 2)
	- if you switch grenade types mid-game and than pickup a backpack, all grenades
	  of old type are replaced with grenades of the new type
* New Gametype : "Capture and Hold" (cnh)
	- Needs custom maps or maps that use .ent/.ant files
	Rigged up .ent/.ant files for mp_air1, mp_col2, mp_pra2 & mp_kam2
* fixed bug in CG_Item() that would only add first two gt items to radar list
	- third point in CNH wasn't showing up
* added clientoption - cg_hudHelpAlpha [0.1-1.0]
 	- control aplha value of on screen hud icons/messages
 	Damn capture point icons kept getting in way of players :)
* improved gametype item code
	- supports switching item models/icons to specific team color
	on the fly. Using this allows hold points in CNH gametype to change
	to the color of the team that currently holds them.
* improved female radio messages and fixed up missing male radio messages
	- female radio messages arn't REALLY complete, but still work well enough
* rigged up female team member skins for all teams

Changes - 26/09/2002
* code switched over to 1.02 base
* updated misc UI files to 1.02 features
* fixed bug for half-time finish + new G_ResetGametype() function
* fixed zoom out sound when switching from Sig 551
* switched team living / total counters over to 1.02 version - may switch back
	 - original ManDown worked fine and by the looks of it, is cheaper
	 (calc'd client side, no new server code)
* added support for .arena to define a single gametype
	- use in conjunction with .ent files to enable new gametype support on existing maps
* finally added ability to define default equipment / equipment choices in worldspawn
	- using g_sof2defaults or defining equipment vars overrides map settings
* added ability for spawn points to fire targets (ala Q3:A)
* fixed items with negative wait / targetnames 
	- will now be reset correctly when round resets.

Changes - 23/09/2002

* added client option - cg_shotgunCrosshair [0/1]
	- increase crosshair size to represent bigger spread when using shotguns

	- configs should no longer reset and/or be messed with mid-game etc.

Changes - 17/09/2002
* fixed bug in warmup causing crash when escaping with briefcase
* added temporary sounds for half-time, round count down etc
* team kill spawn check can now ban as well as kick

	- keeps the amount of dropped non-gametype items constant
* fixed both teams reaching score limit bug - now classed as a 'tie game'
* fixed both teams eliminated at same time issue
	- the red team will no longer loose in such instances
	Put in a 'who-the-fuck-died-first-anyway?' hack.
	Basically, the team that belongs to a player that DIDN'T CAUSE
	the fatal damage is the team that is eliminated FIRST
* redid the stats to include accuracy information etc on a per-weapon basis
* added damage dealt/taken to stats, to calc damage effeciency
* finished off the basic stats menu - use ui_stats to display

	- was 1 + 4 extra. Should have been 1 + 5 extra

* in league games, spectators / ghosts can no longer see ident info unless invited
* red/blue invites cancelled if you join the game properly (ie. on red/blue team)
* REALLY fixed weaptoggle knife + on red team bug - finally, yay!!
* cg_minfps now defaults to ZERO
	- ppl thought something was wrong when tracers / muzzle flash etc didn't show up.
