if one hit sequel this year wasn’t enough, Raven Software have released
another sequel, Soldier Of Fortune 2 which has been similarly well
received. Coming out with far more detailed graphics than Jedi Outcast the
game also has been more problematic for more users. This guide will take
you through the mass of options available in the game.
by downloading the latest Drivers for your Graphics card & Soundcard.
This may solve (most) Input or Audio problems you might be having. There
are links to various manufacturers on the Drivers
install the latest patch, available at Activision.
This will also fix other issues you may have experienced & includes
many other enhancements.
that latest version of DirectX
on your system. This can also fix problems with Sound & Input devices.
If you’re still experiencing lockups & such they might be caused by
overclocking, if so try lowering the Memory/Core speed of the
overclocked device to see if it resolves the problem.
after applying the latest patch for the game it would be wise to
run Raven’s Installation
Verification Tool, which will check the integrity of your game
install. If you’re experiencing problems this may reveal it to be a
corrupted file in your install in which case re-install/replace the
tweaks here can be either changed in your sof2sp.cfg (Single
player) or sof2mp.cfg (Multiplayer) or you may make your own
custom Config file for the Game. If you want to make you own Config file
then simply create a New Text Document, enter in the settings &
save the file as All files & name it customconfig.cfg
(Replace customconfig with your own title). Save it in the base
subdirectory of where SOF II is installed.
load your customconfig.cfg in SOF II, bring down the console (Press
Shift & Tilde key together) & type exec
customconfig.cfg & hit the Enter key.
– If you choose to make the settings in your own custom Config file then
you can omit the seta (space) from each setting. In the myconfig
there will be a seta followed by a space. E.g. In your myconfig.cfg
a setting would appear as follows, seta r_allowExtensions "0",
while in your own customconfig.cfg
it would appear simply as r_allowExtensions“0”.
you wish to enter commands during the game bring down the console (Press
Shift & Tilde key together) & simply enter the command without
quotation marks & hit the Enter key, e.g. cg_drawFPS 1.
Note – Some commands entered this way may not have effect immediately
unless you then enter vid_restart or snd_restart which will
restart the video & audio subsystems respectively.
