Hello,

try opening your windows firewall and be sure the sof2mp.exe is flagged safe for private and pubblic network.

Hey!
Thanks, but unfortunately the firewall didn't fix the issue...
I also trying to get the SOF2 demo running but that also just goes to black screen :/

I think I have version 1.03 sof2....

I can't think of what else to make this work Sad

maybe rename sof2mp.exe to mohaa.exe ??
but this usually only fixes it when the game crashes, and not with black screens. Still worth the try tho.

Else try this replacement: http://1fx.uk.to/forums/index.php?/files/file/104-sof2-103-unlocked-r-mode-and-glx-crash-fix/
I uploaded the executable to this website, but it's awaiting approval and i seem to be unable to get into the ACP, so we'll need to wait for somebody else to approve the program.

This program allows Custom resolutions, and might help you solve the black screen issue.
Just do:

r_mode -1
r_customwidth 1920
r_customheight 1080
vid_res

1920 and 1080 are your screen resolution, so these might be diffirent from what your screen resolution is.

No problem mate,

Voice + text usually @{number}
voice only usually &{number}

e.g @12    (can display like Hello and say Hello)
&12 will only say Hello and you can type things yourself.

this heavily depends on the server mod of course.

glad it worked out now.
To use sounds you do need to download the server soundpack usually is a .pk3 file placing it under the mod folder and then join the server.
The usage is how Punisher wrote up.
Cheers
