Hey guys, I used to play SOF 2 ages ago and thought I'd give it a chance again.
So I've downloaded SOF 2 1.0 from somewhere, it started with exe has stopped working error but I already fixed that.
Now the problem is, when I'm in game I can't find any servers at all.. so.. yeah I'm stuck.
Hopefully you guys could help.
(I don't mind downloading another version and stuff, got a decent connection so if I need to redownload a different version or anything like that it's alright.)
Thanks in advance.
Edit:Updated to 1.3 and now servers show. (:

hmmm... Weird that the servers don't show on v1.00, are you sure you didn't had the filter wrong?

If the serverlist doesnt show up you could also use this alternate Masterserver from 1fx.
http://1fxmod.org/master/

includes a lot of servers ( Not all of them ), for Demo, Full and Gold.
Be aware to make a backup of your sof2mp.exe before installing the alternate masterserver.

Hey thanks for the reply.
I need to know where I can get everything I need (mostly common maps and maybe some other things I might need?) because sometimes it kicks me off the server saying I don't have something and the server isn't pure so can't download from it or something.
Also, it seems like 90% of the servers I see are populated with bots mostly, is the community almost dead or if I get a different version or something I could find actual players to play with\against?
Thanks in advance. (:

Well, i've notice a big decrease of players on gold, which makes the bots stand out.
It depends when you are playing and on what servers you are playing.

If you play Full (V1.00 ) You'll probably see more players during daytime ( GMT+1 ), and on gold you'll probably see more activity during nighttime (GMT +1 ).

For Full ( V1.00 ) You dont really need any costum maps or mods besides RPM 2.0. They don't like to download, so the server don't have another option to get into costum maps.
For Gold you'll probably a bunch of maps and rocmod 2.1c to play properly on it. I can't tell you all the maps which are played the most but i think if you download some mappacks you'll get far enough to play decent on gold.

We are currently getting a SOF2 to Steam Petition:
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/sof2-to-steam

Where you can still see the activity and loyalty of the sof2 community.
Luckily and unfortunately the people who signed it isn't a big part of the players playing sof2.

Thanks for the reply.
I managed to play and everything, but I saw some server is running with PB.
So I downloaded PB and tried to install it.. but it keeps crashing before being installed. ("PBSetup has stopped working)
I tried with pbsetup and pbsvc.exe.
pbsetup crashes and I can't install it.
pbsvc installed worked alright but I don't think it's installed. (When it was running it installed it to system32 apparently but it's not there.. or anywhere really cause I tried updating with pbweb15 and it says I don't have PB installed.)
Also I think I've got some sound issues I didn't have before for some reason.
Sound just doesn't work right.. can't hear footsteps and somewhat missing/delayed firing noise and all around quite buggy.. can't tell why it started as it was working alright before today.

First of all, There are almost no servers running Punkbuster besides probably XS/CKY and RavenZ.
Punkbuster causing problems for a lot of people, but i'd try to help you with it.

First of all, i want to know how your punkbuster folder looks like, if something similar to mine it should be good:

(It should look like this after you install pb, and don't select a game in that part, sof2 probably wouldn't be found anyhow but still. )

Now hit pbsvc.exe, a small window will show up. saying Install/Re-install or uninstall punkbuster.
You hit Install/Re-install Punkbuster ( Probably the top option ).
Click "Next". a window will showup with terms just accept those.

Now it'll check if your files are inplace or found, if successfull it should look like this:

Tell me if something got an error is isn't found.

Hit "Next", now a similar window will show up and check everything.
IF successfull it'll popup a message saying "Tests Completed successfully without error.".
and giving you an output to something like this:
Code:

Starting PunkBuster Service Tests (v0.986) (07/20/15 12:15:39)

  Tests finished.


Just close the program and launch sof2.
Enable Punkbuster ingame and join a pb server.
You shouldn't get kicked for punkbuster, but you might because of pure server ( most pb servers also use pure servers ).



About your sound problem, try to re install your sof2 or re download it from another source.
But before doing that try finding a corrupt file using wiser2: http://www.sof2.org/modules.php?name=Downloads&op=getit&lid=591

It will scan your game for errors or corrupt files, so give me the output of that, and maybe reinstall or redownload the game.

The pbvsc worked, thanks.
Now all I need is somekind of a map pack, missing jor3 italyv2 and some others.
I'm N008 on the servers, thanks for all the help. (:
