Ecuador Mountains by <<<ALIEN>>> is one of my favourite CTF maps. Very RMG
feel to it with the classic 3 ways of attack. Centre, Left using a tunnel or
right through the mountains. Highly recommended for CTF
Thanks to -[FC]- FUN ZONE for introducing me to this one.
This is the long awaited release of the ultimate SOF2 Demo Viewer by Infrequent. ReFrag soon became an essential tool for SOF2 movie makers and you will see it in the credits of all the best SOF2 videos. ReFrag2 is the new improved version with even more features and a much improved user interface. ReFrag2 is not just a tool for movie makers though, it's also an excellent stand alone demo player that lets you analyse every players move from every angle. Unfortunately ReFrag2 does not support v1.00 but if you play Sof2 Gold this
must have tool.
Columbian Village by The Tech Columbian Village by The Tech is a remake of a map from 2003 by Siffer. If you like Jordan the chances are you will like this. A very nice well illuminated map with plenty of alleyways for you to explore. Well worth the download.
Some time ago when re-installing SoF2 and before adding the gold patch to bring my 3 year old CD up to date, I noticed there were lots of servers still running version 1.00 I decided to do a duplicate SOF2 installation in a second folder on my PC, but running v1.00. I have to say its like another dimension with many hundreds of players never seen on the gold version. You can add v1.00 in about 4 minutes, why not give it a try:) There are more people playing RMG than on gold!!
Playing SOF2 v1.03
Some months after SoF2 was launched a number of modifications were made to the original game which included bug fixes, new weapons, Punkbuster anti cheat software and additional maps. This update, called the Gold Patch changed your original game to v1.03. It was intended to replace to 1.00 version but if you make a copy of your original v1.00 files before applying the patch you can still play both versions.

Server not showing in the SOF2 Games List.
If your game server is not
listed in the SOF2 Games List try checking what the current Ip
is for the master.sof2.ravensoft.com
To do this open a command prompt by typing
cmd in the start/run box.... when the cmd appears click on it
and open it up, in the command box type ping
master.sof2.ravensoft.com you will see an IP address in brackets
and this is the IP you have to put in your server.cfg for your
server as sv_master1 .
Setting up a Home SOF2 Server. As written
by m8 (GohfiK~)
Setting up a Home Server :
Here are a few tips on how to setup a dedicated SOF2 home server
on Port 20102 and get it seen by the outside world:
1. Create a stand-alone version of SOF2 to use just for the
server. Copy the contents of SOF2 C:\Program Files\Soldier of
Fortune II - Double Helix\ to a new folder C:\SOF2server
2. If you’re on Windows Vista or above change the C:\SOF2server
folder Security permissions for Users to “Full Control” to allow
SoF2MP.exe to write to files and folders in C:\SOF2server.
3. Copy extra custom maps into C:\SOF2server\base
4. Copy the rpm folder into C:\SOF2server\rpm along with the mod
files and configure the server settings.
Make sure the following setting for the master server list is
seta sv_master1 "master.sof2.ravensoft.com"
Remove settings for rconpassword, fs_game, sv_pure, dedicated,
net_port. These will be set using the command line in the
5. Find C:\SOF2server\SoF2MP.exe and create a shortcut to it
(Right click > Create shortcut). Edit the properties of the
shortcut to add the following command line parameters to the
8. Start the server using the “SoF2MP.exe – shortcut” you
9. Finished. Say hello to your new home server which should
appear in the master server list after a minute or two.
N.B. When you try to join the home server yourself, use the
“Source: Local” server list to find and connect to your local
Remote players will use the Internet master server list to
connect to your home server.
Hope this helps a bit.
Many thanks to m8 (GohfiK~) for these tips on how to set up a

Setting up a Favourite Server list in
Qtracker written by DooGie
Setting up a Favourite Server list in
This is a very helpful tutorial written by
DooGie (aka -=Garbage DinGo=-)
There are probably several
ways of doing it but this is the way I favour. Down the left
hand side of Qtracker there should be a list of various
games. Right click on the Soldier of Fortune 2 entry and from
the drop down menu select New / Folder, a new folder will be
created. You can rename this folder to whatever you want ie SOF2
1.0. Right click the SOF2 icon in Qtracker and select
find internet games , this should bring up a list of online
servers in the right hand pane of Qtracker, mine shows
135 servers at the moment. Find a SOF2 v1.0 server you want to
play on and drag and drop the server over to your newly created
folder. If you then open this folder you will see the server you
have just dropped there appear in the right hand pane of
qtracker. Next step is to right click the new folder and select
"Specify install location of this program". Select Soldier of
Fortune II, you can then use the browse button to select the
correct sof2mp.exe for the version of game you have dropped into
the folder. So for instance if you have both SOF2 v1.00 and SOF2
v1.02 installed you would create 2 new folders v1.0 and v1.02
and in the v1.02 directory drop v1.02 games in from the
Qtracker list and point the folder to the correct
sof2mp.exe. This way you can easily build up lists of favourite
servers. Hope this helps. Click on link to see how I have
Qtracker set out.

A lot of people are having problems with No Server List
in the SOF2 in game browser, this is due to some problem
with the Master Server......
There are several ways of connecting to servers..........
1. If you know the IP address of a
server you can type in the game console \connect
???.???.???.???:????? (? the numbers of the address) and hit
2. If you already had added servers to your Favorites you
can connect using that.
3. Use a program that finds game servers such as:
Hope this helps .........
Setting the correct Network Settings and
Many people join servers with the default
network settings for SOF2,this causes problems for players
as when the game was made the majority of people connected
to the internet using 56k modems. The problem that is
experienced is LAG this means that the game does not
run smoothly and players as a result don't get the best out
of the game.
There are 2 ways to
correct this problem........
The first way is to use the game set up option:-
When in the game Press the
Esc key, then along the top of the screen select
Options, on this page the last icon on the right is
Network settings. When you have selected the Network
Settings at the top of the list is
Rate. Once you
click Rate you cycle through the different connection
types... You need to show your connection type and then once
it appears on the screen press the
Esc key again
to return to the game.
The second way to set your
RATE in the
game is to Press the

on my keyboard. Once the console is open type in
then close the console by pressing the

ENCOUNTERED WHEN PLAYING SOF2 ONLINE
Slug installed Windows 7 and after installing
SOF2 he was getting an error it said "SOF2
encountered a problem" and the game shut down. After
checking that graphic drivers etc. were up to date the error
was still there. However the problem was solved by DooGie
"I had the same problem Slug. If you are using an nVidia
graphics card try the following. Open up the nvidia
control panel and go to where it shows game profiles.
Select the Soldier of Fortune profile and look for a
line that says Extension limit. If it's set to Off
change it to On. The problem is caused by the new open
gl having more extensions than SOF2 can handle."
An update from DooGie :-
With the latest driver release,
the extension limit is set already in the SOF2 profile.
needed, nVIDIA have also removed the extension
limit setting in this release.
Thanks for the added info

Many of the problems encountered in playing SOF2 online can
fixed by installing the same
version of OSP to your
PC that is being used on the game server you want to play
If you have the wrong OSP version you may see the error
"Server disconnected: Unpure client detected. invalid .PK3
Current versions in use are listed below.
If you have no versions of OSP
installed (No OSP Folder in your SOFII installation) then
download OSP 0.3k and extract the zip file to your SOF2
Double Helix folder. It will create a folder named OSP. Next
download OSP Versions 0.3d - 1.0h and extract the files to
the OSP Folder.
ROCmod Version 1.03
In order to play on servers running
ROCmod you will need to
download that as well.
Download ROCmod-2.1a and extract to your SOFII
directory (not base folder)
Also in common use is ROCmod2.0c which you should extract to your
Most SOFII v1.03 servers run Punkbuster anti-cheat software
and you will need an up-to date client version of Punkbuster
in order to play on these servers.
Each copy of SOFII has a unique serial number that gives you
the user an equally unique player ID or GUID. If the CD you
are using does not have a unique key (CD is a copy) or your
GUID is logged on a list of banned players you will be
kicked from servers by Punkbuster.
The Punkbuster files on your PC are designed to update
Even Balance (Punkbuster) have announced a new tool to aid
players and server admins.
It's called PunkBuster Setup and allows you to keep track of
your current PB version for both client and server, and
update all games on your computer at the touch of a button.
1. Ability to install/update PunkBuster software for
multiple supported games
2. Ability to correct corrupted installations of the
3. Self-updating executable; you may from time to time be
notified of new versions of PBSetup itself. A download and
update will happen automatically.
How to Install PBSetup: 1. Download PBSetup for your OS platform
Windows (472KB) 2. Place the file in an appropriate directory: 3. Create a desktop shortcut to pbsetup.exe and then
double click on the icon.
When you run the program for the first time it will ask you
what games you wish to update and where they are located on
your PC (Add a Game) You can then click on 'Check For
Updates' and the system will download and install the very
latest version of Punkbuster.

If you have any problems related to playing SOF2 v1.03 you
can post on our
Other problems with V1.03
If you are sure you have the above the next step is to make
sure your base folder has the correct files AND try removing
any files that may be causing problems.
Your SOFII Base folder requires the following files to
Depending on how many additional maps and modifications
you have downloaded you may have many more files in
your base folder.
If you are having problems running SOFII it may be worth
removing additional files such as downloaded skins, weapons
and textures modifications.
1. Rename your base folder OLDbase
2. Create a NEW folder within your SOFII folder and name it base
3. COPY each of the above pk3 files from your OLDbase folder and put them
into your new base folder.
Copy the mp folder from the OLDbase folder and paste it into
your new base folder.
You now have a clean base folder but still have all the
other files safe in the OLDbase folder should you need one
of them later.
Now go into SOFII and see if this has cured your problem.

I'm looking for answers in relation to this error which I
suspect is due to some corruption to the games installed
files. In relation to SOF2 v1.00 the following may help
Take a look at
http://www.sofplayers.co.uk/sof2-v1.shtml and scroll down
to the section
"Files needed to play sof2 v1.00" There are some screenshots
of the files you must have and their file sizes that may
help. But if you have the original CD I would just
re-install the game.
A less drastic thing you could try is to move all your
copies of sof2mp.cfg ( there will be one in the BASE/MP
Folder and copies in all the mod folders such as RPM, RPMPro,
ADM ) out of those folders and save them say in my
Documents. That way you have NO config settings and when you
start the game a new default setting will be created just
like when you first installed the
game. This will solve the problem if it is related to
changes you made to your config.
Keep a copy of your old sof2mp.cfg if you have lots of
binds then you can copy and paste them back into your new
config file using MS NOTEPAD.
