OK so you wanna make some FLAGS for SOF2 CTF and you wanna use them ingame.
THIS IS HOW.

I do not apologise for the length of the document as this is an INDEPTH tutorial.

First things first.
You MUST have 2 programs:
1st is WINZIP.
2nd is a graphics program that can handle .jpg format picture files. I use Paintshop Pro.

?
SET UP PHASE:

To get your flags to work you must set a few things up first.
- Make 2 folders one inside the other.
- 1st folder is called models.
- Once you've made it, open it up and make another one called flags.
- Open that one up and that is where you put your flag files.
- So the path looks like:
- modelsflags.

That's the set up done?
THE EDITING PHASE:

To get your flag files:
- Open your Soldier of Fortune 2 - Double Helix base folder.
- Locate the models.pk3 file and double click on it to open it (must have winzip installed to do this).
- Scroll down the list until you find these files:
- flag_blue.jpg and flag_red.jpg (I take it you know what these are).
- To open one for editing (in Paintshop Pro) just double click on one.
- This will open up Paintshop Pro and have your file ready to edit.

"STOP right there".
- Now press the [F12] key to SAVE AS.
- Don't change the file name (or you won't be able to use your flag ingame) but browse to find the folder you made in the setup phase: modelsflags and hit [ENTER].
- This will save the flag into your folder that you setup earlier and will avoid making changes to the REAL / DEFAULT flag.
- So the path to your flag will now be:
- modelsflagsflag_blue.jpg.
- So now edit the picture to your needs and save it.
- Your picture will be saved into the modelsflags folder we created earlier.

You can close Painthop Pro now.
This is all good.
THE FINAL PHASE:

You're almost there.

- Locate the models folder that you made before.
- Now RIGHT CLICK on the models folder and select ADD TO MODELS.ZIP.
- This will create a separate file called (believe it or not) models.zip.
- Now to turn this into a .PK3 file to be used ingame simply rename it to WHATEVERYOUWANT.pk3.
- You will get an error message but just click OK or YES.
- All that is left to do now is copy the file and paste it into your BASEMP folder.

Start up or join a Multiplayer SOF2 CTF game.
Go check out your new flag smile

This is exactly the process I use.

End Tutorial ... Start Gaming smile
