Equador Mountains

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 is a must have tool.

Custom Maps
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.

Playing SOF2 v1.00

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.

Playing SOF2 Gold Edition
Playing SOFII v1.03 - Gold Edition        see also Playing SOFII v1.00
If you try to connect to an SOFII v1.03 (gold) server and you are running v1.00 you will get an error message saying "server uses protocol version 2004" In order to play v1.03 (gold) you need to make a new version of the game and update it with the Gold Patch. Note Punkbuster operates on most sof2 gold servers so you will need a genuine copy of the game with a key/guid that is not on the PB banlist in order to play. Follow these simple instructions to get SOF2 v1.03 up and running in addition to your SOFII v1.00 installation. Remember you can still play v1.00 so you have nothing to lose by having both.
 
SOF2 Gold Patch Download

The following files and folders are already on your PC (not your CD)
1. Download the Gold patch above
2. Copy your SOFII v1.00 folder and rename it SOF2 GOLD
3. If you have folders named adm, rpm or RPMPro delete them
4. Run sof2goldfull.exe to modify the NEW folder you just created.
5. Create a desktop shortcut to SoF2MP.exe which is in your new SOF2 GOLD folder
6. In order to play on servers you will need to download some versions of OSP and RoCmod otherwise you will get kicked from servers with the error message...
"Server disconnected: Unpure client detected. invalid .PK3 files referenced!"
Note unlike with v1.00 you WILL need the correct mod to play on servers.

What's different about SOFII Gold?
Most noticeable differences between v1.00 and gold are........
Introduction of 3 new weapons, namely the MP5 rapid fire automatic rifle, the SIG55 scoped automatic rifle and the Silver Talon pistol. Four new maps are included in the patch, mp_kam5, mp jor1, mp shop2,p kam4, mp col2, mp hos2 and mp pra2. It is now possible to drop and pickup weapons and items such as flags and briefcases. And of course the introduction of Punkbuster anti cheat software. Generally there are a lot more servers running Gold but sadly RMG is no longer as popular as it once was.

Servers that run mods such as OSP and RocMod (similar to the RPM mod in v1.00) also require you to have the same version on your pc in order to connect to them.

There are also some major modifications to the game available.

Goldrush has many features including 14 new gametypes, 16 maps, 2 new RMG terrains,  new admin/referee system, very good bots and a feature where wounded players are slower than healthy players.

The International Crime Syndicate mod I.C.S. 2.1 adds new weapons, maps and sounds and features gas grenades that induce a fit of coughing.

The Jeel SpecOps Mod v3 adds new weapons including toxic gas and laser targeting. website
Punkbuster and v1.03 | Even Balance | PB Bans
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 themselves automatically.

HOWEVER......
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.

Features:
1. Ability to install/update PunkBuster software for multiple supported games
2. Ability to correct corrupted installations of the PunkBuster software
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. For Linux and Mac versions visit http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=updatepb.php

Is my GUID on a Banlist? www.pbbans.com
First off you need to know your GUID. You have to be running SOFII Gold to do this.
When running SOFII v1.03 open the console and type /pb_myguid
You can either carefully write it down or better still while this is showing type /condump myguid.txt. This produces a text file in the SoF2 \Base\MP folder called myguid.text. Open it in notepad and look at the bottom of it and there will be your GUID. This can then be copied and pasted into notepad and the file saved somewhere so you can find it in future.

Enter your GUID
Do NOT enter your CD Key
