Changes in Beta 2.1. I. Introduction : ===============SoF eXp is an unofficial expansion pack for Soldier of Fortune (SoF). It is focused on the multiplayer part of the game and, all especially, on the Capture The Flag (CTF) game mode. This release consists of the following : * 9 shiny new CTF maps. * 6 revisited maps from the original Raven CTF maps pool. * 2 "Just for FUN" maps (soccer, tennis). * Miscellaneous fixes. II. Requirements : ===============To play SoF eXp, you will need an up-to-date version of Soldier of Fortune. At the time of writting, this means version 1.07f (also called 1.07 short or 1.07f Beta). If you need to update, be sure to visit the SoF eXp website for verified download links. III. How to install : ===================To install SoF eXp, simply launch the installer file, ie: "SoFeXpBeta21.exe". When asked to, point the program to your correct SOF folder. For example: "C:\PROGRA~1\RAVEN\SOF". Proceed to install and you will then be ready to play on any server running the eXp add-on! You can also start your own server and visit the map through the usual SoF menus. If for some reason you would like to check the installation went well: The installation program will have placed a .pak file in your SOF/base folder along with a copy of this file in the SOF folder. This .pak file, named "addon-sof-exp-public-beta2.1.pak", is required in order to play on eXp servers. Any server willing to run eXp simply needs to have the said .pak file installed. This does NOT prevent from playing the original SoF maps. To uninstall older versions : ----------------------------- Either use the uninstaller or manually delete the older versions' pak files, respectively named addon-sof-exp-public-beta1.pak and addon-sof-exp-public-beta2.pak. IV. Troubleshooting : ===================With Beta 2.1 installed, you will not need Beta 1 nor 2 anymore so uninstall it if you are experiencing any trouble. If you encounter map mismatch errors, make sure your "SOF/user" directory is clean from any eXp material. Risk is older versions of eXp maps (that you downloaded from game servers) are still in your "user" folder so go and delete your "SOF/user/exp/" directory if any. V.

Special Thanks : ==================We'd like to acknowledge the following people, in no particular order : Hector Infector for helping me out when I was starting mapping ;) -tsyrak. [K]Stalker for his thorough beta-testing. The add-on would have been out way faster if it wasn't for his help, but way buggier too! ;) All the people who reported bugs and gave us constructive criticism. You guys make the maps better and our work worth doing! The [MoD] clan for beta-testing the maps while they still were at a beta stage. MindVision Software for their freeware- and shareware-friendly license agreement to the MindVision Installer VISE. ...and of course Raven Software, for the best multiplayer action out there ;). VII. Additionnal information : ============================A) The Modified Raven Maps... List of changes : ----------------------------------------------- - All maps got their weapon placement adjusted to prevent camping as the winning tactic. - exp/sudctf2 "Missile Base: 10-12" Water for lava in the midfield. exp/jpnctf1 "Parking: 2-6" Red and blue sides swapped. Weapons placement evened out. exp/irqctf1 "Wastelands: 6-10". Ripped open wall above corridor to reward C4-jumping. exp/sudctf1 "Flag Frag: 2-8" (Nothing but weapon placement changes.) exp/nycctf1 "Gangland: 6-10" Added crate in blue base for easier shotgun access. exp/gerctf1 "Castle Kill: 8-10" Added extra way out of each base. Fixed mixed spawnpoint issues. All the above maps got their items arrangement revisited (eg: shotguns added, other weapons moved or added, ammo moved or added). B) Miscellaneous fixes : ------------------------ * Fixed missing translations to French (game messages, skins). * Fixed missing line returns in game messages (German, French). * Config files (.cfg & .lst), see part "4. Server Admins" for instructions. C) Server Admin Infos : ----------------------- To launch an eXp map via RCON, simply give the map command one of the names/paths listed above as parameter. For example, type: rcon map exp/irqctf2. This "mod" includes .cfg and .lst files in order to manage maps cycle and server options : - Maps Cycles : Seeing as typographies in the names of maps cycle files will crash a server, we have provided .cfg files to do the job for you. Execute ("exec XXX") one of the 4 following files to change the maps cycle on your server : exp/cycle-CTF-ALL.cfg exp/cycle-CTF-SMALL.cfg exp/cycle-CTF-MEDIUM.cfg exp/cycle-CTF-LARGE.cfg - Time or Flags Limits : To toggle between the 2 usual games limit in use in the SoF community use whether : exec exp/useTL.cfg (to set the server on a time limit of 20min and no flags limit) or exec exp/useFL.cfg (to set the server on a flags limit of 10 and no time limit) - To set the server to the default eXp settings (limited ammo, realism... flags limit) use : exec exp/default A more complete RCON guide is available on the eXp website. VIII. Changes in Beta 2.1 : =========================Maps : * fractf2 : in Red base, added clip brush above crates. * mexctf1 : in Red base, removed misplaced blue spawnpoint. * gerctf1 : corrected the name as it appears in console (will now properly display "exp/gerctf1 ..." instead of 2). Modified weapons placement a bit. * gerctf2 : added crates in the flag rooms to allow for easier access. * irqctf2 : updated version (miscellaneous bug fixes). Installer: * Notice to uninstall Beta1 or 2 before installing. * Notice to keep SoF closed during installation. * Warning that the installation directory is SOF, not user/ or base/. ======= Find latest news, a manual, forums and a chat room on the official SoF eXp website! http://www.tsyrak.com/exp =======
