Game downloaded now, extracted, tried and failed Wink. I get an error saying sof2mp.exe has stopped working... I tried running it in compatibility mode, still the same.

Any ideas?

Its a Quadro K2100M card (my work laptop). I see that it is OpenGL compatible so should work. Updating the drivers now.

Euhm... I would say Downgrade them, as sof2 is an old game. But try doing the update maybe it'll work.

Ok, got it working now. I had to go in and tell it to use the Quadro graphics processor for OpenGL Wink. Running now.
Haven't gone online yet, will try to set up a dedicated server too now to refresh my skills Wink

Dont forget to enter a CD Key.
A lot of people forget to do it and they'll get an "Identification Error".

I Hope to see you ingame soon,

Thanks, Teo. First of all I plan on setting up a local dedicated server to play around with Smile. I have the necessary hardware lying around anyways, a good easter project Wink.

Do any of you have a link to a howto on setting up a dedicated server without using the GUI to set it up?

Yes, its windows. Things are beginning to come back to me. SOF2Runner downloaded and used to configure the server Smile. This will be so much fun!

is not needed, now most used server side mod is the 1fx mod, or you can also go for the RPMPro for example is up to you.

You simply edit the server.cfg (config.cfg in case of the 1fx mod) and than create a .bat file including your commands. easy way. If you go for FULL version of course.

SOF2runner can still be used for rocmod2.1c, ofcourse i'd recommend doing it yourself editing the server cfg ( more options to edit ).
