Soldier of Fortune
large file. This time it takes 26.3 MB but it's the last time you have to get such a large file. That's why this release of Silver-Forces is called final. The menus, skins and scripts won't change anymore and you'll only have small addons to download from time to time. The 3.0b and 3.1b releases of Silver-Forces have been downloaded over 8200 times!!! Also, the Silver-Forces weapons have been downloaded over 3000 times and we therefore decided to add them directly to the mod. Jack has edited the alpha channel of the sniper rifle inview so you have a full-screen view now when you snipe. This release has 13 defuse maps, 2 cooperative maps, 6 exchange maps, 7 jailbreak maps, and 8 rob maps. The JOLT SF server should quickly be upgraded to this new release.... A Silver-Forces Readme file is provided with this release and it would be very helpfull if you went through it before playing the mod. The readme file will be in your 'Silver' folder once you'll have installed the mod. Installation is quite similar to the one of previous releases: grab the 26.3 Mb file and double click on it. It will ask you where you want to install it and you'll have to point it to your SOF game directory. Then click on extract and it will copy the files. If it all worked correctly you will have a 'Silver' folder in your SOF game directory. Then run 'install_silver.bat' that is in your SOF folder and you will arrive to a menu: you will have to configure the 'commit suicide' and 'change team' keys because they are compulsory to play Silver-Forces. Once you configured those keys, click on 'save key bindings' and then on 'quit'. To run the mod, you'll simply need to run 'silver.bat' that is in your SOF folder.... Enjoy this release!!![/i] [b]Improtant[/b]: The zip is a selfextarcting archive-file (rar?) but it's in French language... Use a bit of your fantasy coz it isn't hard to understand! Just delete your old version of Silver Forces (that's what i did), run this file and point it to your SOF-directory (Parcourir = browse!!!)! Then run "install_silver.bat" [b]ONCE[/b], wait till it's done, set some keys, quit and restart the game!!
and point it to your SOF-directory!
Silver Forces mod, it is important that you use this update otherwise you will get error-messages about map-incompatibilty, etc (both server and client must run the same versions of the maps)... So grab your copy of this update now and have some fragging fun with it!
team has to escape from the jail, in another new mode you have to lead a fire into your enemy's base... When you have an old beta installed, make sure you delete the silver-directory before you start installing beta 3.1! Install the mod by running this exe-file and point it to your SOF-directory! After that run "install_silver.bat" ONCE! This procedure will create all necessary config-files for you! Finally you can start the mod by running "silver.bat"! Silver Forces has a forum where you can post stuff about SF, like bugs, problems, suggestions for improvements, etc etc... Have fun with the mod! PS: JOLT already has a SF beta 3.1 server running! Time to kick some ass ;)
1 This update is an option! SF beta 3.1b still runs without these weapons! So there is no need to use it, but it is definiatly worth trying them (especially as the weapons come in separate pak-files, which makes installation and de-installation very easy)! Have fun with it!
faq, how to play each supported mode, etc... Still problems? Please visit the Silver Forces Forum!
includes a soccer game! Installation is pretty easy: Just extract the exe-file from silverforces-beta.zip, run it and point it to you SOF directory (like E:gamesSOF)... It extracts a directory called SILVER (with the needed files) and a batchfile called silver.bat! In case of an uninstall, just delete the directory and batchfile ;) To run the mod, simply start silver.bat! The first thing to do, is to change it's language when you don't speak French (coz French is the mod's default language). You can do this by going to OPTIONS, MISC! Then you have to set all you favorite setting for video, keys, etc as the mod cannot use your original settings (it uses it's own settings)! The MOD is in a beta-fase so don't expect everything to run smoothly! Some maps needs to be started in DM-mode, other needs to be started in CTF-mode... Sometimes my system hung and i had to leave with F12 (and a blind ENTER). I tried a few maps and settings very quickly. I found some hostages but i couldn't find the spot where i have to bring them to! And i couldn't fuse/defuse the bomb... Maybe i need to test it with more people with at least one person in every team! I haven't seen all maps of Silver Forces, but most of the maps that i did see were small! Some maps are very nice, and some are just plain simple... And some maps i couldn't see as it would not start in any mode (maybe i rushed too much?)! I am glad something is happening on the mod-front! It is still an (early) beta, but it probably won't hurt you when you take a look at it... so, go get it!
start Silver Forces! Have fun with this tool!
problems of Beta 1 but it also has new gamemodes, like Conquer the Bunker, Cooperative single player and Exchange! Beta 2 has also many new and updated maps! However, it is still a beta-version, so don't expect zero problems... Especially the soccergame still has some problems! Installation has been improved also! After extracting the files, please run the install_silver.bat [i]once[/i] and most of your normal settings are taken into the config from Silver Forces... Silver Forces however has some keys of it's own (suicide, etc), so you still have to set some keys ;) If you are running into some problems or you have some suggestions about improvements, you can discuss them on the special Silver Forces Forum! You also may want to see the documentation that is available here! Sure, it is still a beta, but it is a beta worth trying! Go grab it! Don't forget to grab patch #1 as well! PS: There's [b]no need[/b] to install beta 1 first... It's even better to uninstall beta 1 before installing beta 2 (by deleting the silver-directory)!
patch installed. This patch mainly fixes some bugs, so no new features have been added. Enjoy :)
