Alright, sof2mp_default.cfg  is located in your mp.pk3 file located in sof2/base folder.
Check if sof2mp_default.cfg  is located there, als be sure you have the following files:
musicandsounds.pk3
textures1234.pk3
textures0.pk3
maps.pk3
skins.pk3
models.pk3
therest.pk3
mp.pk3

-------
IF GOLD
-------
update101.pk3
update102.pk3
update103.pk3

also to check if anything is corrupt theres a handy tool called Wiser,
You can download it here: Wiser 2.zip

Put the program in your sof2 folder and start it.

If no corrupt files found; uninstall the game, redownload it and reinstall it.

If corrupt files found, say which files and we'll send them to you.

Yo guys,

I've tried the wiser before, there where no corrupt files. I have downloaded sof2 from 10 different places now but not 1 works. Which one should i download now? from sof2org? Gold edition?
Do you guys have ventrilo or teamspeak or something like that?

I cant upload any images, i get redirected with the message "sorry, this module aint active"

First of all, fairplay isnt compatible with Gold ( Will make your files corrupt ' .zzz ' ), it makes files which are not on the whitelist to .zzz, including the update10x.pk3.

try to uninstall and install again that might be the cause ( Had it before myself tho, fp made it unable to read for sof2 for some reasons but not corrupt tho ).

not needed tho, if you get your previous message ' sof2mp.exe has stopped working ' you it probably is something with your drivers.
Quick tutorial can be found here: http://www.sof2.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=3396#3393

I have started it normal then it says doesnt work anymore, but if i start it with windows service pack it gives the error couldn't load sof2mp_default.cfg. (I checked all the files with wiser again)

I am now downgrading my driver for my ati radeon. As it is explained in the link you gave me in your post.

Ill want to give you an update when its ready but i cant post reply if I am the last one who posted. That is why i didnt uploaded the second photo. Also i am too noob to post 2 pics in one post Very Happy

Havent had the drivers issue but openGL Errors or games which wont work are a common problem with AMD drivers when playing old games.

*** PROBLEM SOLVED ***


Has absolutely nothing to do with any drivers nor sof2 self.

It took about 20 min searching and trying again but at the end i found the solution.

This is for Windows 7 and i dunno if it works for windows 8.

Do the following:
1. Click the Start icon / orb.
2. hit right mouse button on ' computer '.
3. Hit ' Properties '
4. Hit ' Advanced System settings '.
5. hit Settings under the section ' performence '.
6. hit the tab ' Data execution prevention '
7. Be sure to that ' Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those i select '.
8. hit ' Add... '
9. go to  sof2mp.exe path and hit open, if you did it good the sof2mp.exe is now on the list, be sure its checked.
10. Hit ' Apply ' and ' ok ' .

The game should work now.
