Finally, I can put a full review here. The full install file clocks in at over 350mB!! This is plain obscene if it were any other mod. For those of you that have played Counter-Strike, you will all see the similarities. One team is the Special Ops teams from around the world, the other is the opposers of the Special Ops. When you spawn you only start with a pistol and will need to buy weapons and ammo. You need to reload on your own too, no auto-reload. The weapon models are extremely well done, the guns that I have actually seen in the real world look very much alike what they do on the UT2k4 engine. I haven't had the chance to play this mod too much, I played one map and started to drool all over the place and had to stop. A few downfalls I found, the bots aren't too good, they work fine and buy guns, but I have seen better bots. Another thing is that some buttons weren't bound right away, I had to go in and bind my reload button and buttons to enter the shopmenu and buy ammo. Other than that I haven't found anything wrong with this excelent mod.
:: Contents :: 1) General Information 2) Performance Tweaks 3) Technical Information (Possible Fixes!) 4) Known Issues 5) Team Members and Contributors 6) ChangeLog ::  General Information :: ------ Q: What are "Binds?" A: A "bind" is referring to a key/mouse/joystick button that is "bound" to a certain function in the game. For example, if you opened your FragOpsUser.ini located in UT2004\FragOps\System, you'd find that the "R" key is bound to Reload, which reloads your gun. Q: How can i add a bind? A: You can either manually add binds in your FragOpsUser.ini, or using the ingame console by typing "set input <key> <function>", for example: set input R Reload would do the same thing as in answer #1. There is also the ingame "controls" settings page, where you can set up most of the basic controls in an easy-to-use visual interface. ------ Several binds are listed below which cannot be found in your control settings. They generally require manual configuration. a) Weapon Binds: SELLWEAPON -- sells your currently held weapon back. Note that melee weapons can not be completely ^_ removed, only replaced by trading it for another. BUYPRIMARY or BUYSIDEARM or BUYMELEE <weapon id#> [attachment slot#] Buys a primary weapon matching the id# you enter. ^_ if you enter an attachment slot# as well, it will attempt to buy the weapon as well ^_ as the selected attachment. Attachment slots are as follows: ^_ 0: stock ^_ 1: attachment 1 (if available) ^_ 2: attachment 2 (if available) ^_ 3: both attachments (if available) ^_ If you do not have enough money for the weapon AND the attachment, it will only ^_ purchase the weapon by itself. If you are not on the team that can buy the weapon ^_ you desire, it will not buy it at all. BUYGRENADE <grenade id#> Buys a grenade with the specified id#. ^_ New grenades will automatically go into the first empty slot you have. If you already have ^_ a full grenade inventory, it will only replace the primary when buying. You must ^_ sell off your secondary grenade first if you wish for a new one to be placed there ^_ when using this bind. BUYARMOR <Armor Level> Buys Armor at the specified Armor Level. ^_ If no level is entered it defaults to light armor. If your armor is damaged and you ^_ wish to repair it, just buy it as usual and it will automatically repair and subtract ^_ the money needed. example: typing "BuyPrimary 1 3" into your console would buy an SMP45 with all its attachments, as long as you have enough money. 1 would be the weapon id# (listed below) and 3 would specify all attachments. Whereas typing "BuyPrimary 1" would only give you a stock SMP45. b) Ammo Binds BUYAMMO  Buys ammo for your currently selected weapon. example: If you type "BuyAmmo" into your console by itself, it will only buy one magazine. If you type "BuyAmmo 1" into your console, then it will attempt to buy the maximum ammo your weapon can hold or as much ammo as your current amount of money allows, whichever comes first. c) SPECIAL NOTES: BuyBinds follow the WeaponSell system, therefore any weapons you buy that replace other weapons will readd the replaced weapon's money to your inventory. d) The primary weapon buy id#'s are: 0)=Rygarr MP99 1)=SMP45 2)=MG5-SR 3)=MG5-SR 4)=Ultra90 5)=Ultra90 6)=Red Dragon 7)=Red Dragon 8)=FKE103 9)=FMS556 10)=Comanche 11)=ZM8 12)FP N90 13)FP N90 14)=STF-U30 15)=STF-U30 16)=CT42 17)=CT42 e) The sidearm weapon buy id#'s are: 0)=UXP45-T 1)=UXP45-T 2)=Arctic Eagle 3)=Arctic Eagle 4)=AMP7-PDW 5)=RMP9 f) The grenade buy id#'s are: 0)=High Explosive 1)=Flash 2)=Napalm 4)=Smoke Red 5)=Smoke Yellow g) The melee buy id#'s are: 0)=Machete 1)=Combat Knife h) The armor buy id#'s are: 0)=Light Armor 1)=Medium Armor 2)=Heavy Armor ## SwitchTrait bind i) Trait id's for SwitchTrait are 0=P.O.W. 1=Ninja 2=Rambo 3=Thug 4=Pyromaniac 5)=Cadet 6)=Sniper 7)=Assassin 8)=Hacker 9)=Bomber 10)=Ex-Cop 11)=Tank 12)=Bloody Mess 13)=Sprinter ------ ::  Performance Tweaks :: !DISCLAIMER! Any manual .ini changes you make are done at your own risk. Some of these may boost your performance, some might make it worse. Experiment before playing online. !DISCLAIMER! a) Possible increase: open FragOps.ini change OverrideDesktopRefreshRate to True change DesiredRefreshRate to the highest possible refresh your monitor can handle. you should see a nice little fps boost. b) Another possible increase: open FragOps.ini change bCapFrameRate to False change MinDesiredFrameRate to 40.000 c) If you're noticing pauses or slowdown when players first come on the screen, it's because player skin preloading is off by default. This balances load time with performance, since we cache all weapon skins no matter what this is set to. If you have a fairly quick pc, you can get rid of these pauses by opening FragOps.ini, find the section labeled [FragOps.FragOpsMission] and change bPreloadAllSkins=false to bPreloadAllSkins=true This will increase map loadtime, but you will no longer get any pauses. ------ ::  Technical Information :: a) Starting the game: Use the included links to start the game in windows.
