Reply with quote

Greetings and salutations. I am having problems installing SOF2 on windows 8.1. When I launch setup.exe I get the install menu. Hitting install seems to bring up the demo32.exe for a few seconds... Then nothing...

Any idea? What am I doing wrong?

Where did you download it from?
Try downloading it from our download section.

If you want to use "FUll" or V1.00:
http://www.sof2.org/modules.php?name=Downloads&op=getit&lid=391

or if you want "Gold" or v1.03:
http://www.sof2.org/modules.php?name=Downloads&op=getit&lid=420

If im correct the games are compressed into .rar or .zip files, so you only need to extract the package to the folder you'd like to have your game path.


If it didnt work tell me and give some more information about what happened.

Sincerely,
Punisher

I have the game working properly with win8.1 pro 64bit, i just installed the game trough the original 2 CD's without any issue and without changing the compatibility version like we had to do with win7 so my question is: is your CD maybe damaged?

You can always download the game as Punisher suggested in his post.

Most people dont have the CD's anymore, so im auto redirecting them to download it from the internet.
And with newer pc's you might have the issue that changing the CD's when asked wont be recognized by the installer. ( Which i have sometimes ).

Thanks, I will have a go with the version downloaded from this site Smile. Somewhere in my attick I have the original CDs and I guess I have to dig them up to get the key for installing anyways.
I had a trip down memory lane and decided to have a look at SOF2 again. Many years ago we played this game every night and every weekend for hours Smile, not that anyone will remember but we were the Norwegian Renegade Warriors Wink. I have only good memories, and I hope I will not ruin it by starting it up again now :)

Btw, are there any alternate locations to download? It is really slow and keeps disconnecting...

Punisher: I have been out for so long, thought I'd get them both Wink. No idea if I am playing Full or Gold Smile. Waiting for Gold now, but with 108KB/sec it's going to take a while, if it will ever get here.

Does anyone have it available on an FTP? Or I can add a user to my FTP so someone can upload it to me Wink. Anything must be faster than this...

I dont know what you like more?
Silver is only downloading RPM and maybe Italy and dep1. Further no downloads really required as they are to lazy to download stuff.
Gold is downloading alot because almost every server has costum maps ( Might get up to +2gb ), and almost every server is using rocmod2.1c. Only a handful left with OSP and only 1 with xs mod ( COD Looking mod, with new weapons, features and gametypes ).

Also Silver is Hide & Seek, Infiltration and Capture the flag only.
Gold only uses Capture the Flag and (team) Deathmatch and just a few playing on mixed gametypes using Mainly infiltration, Dem, Elim or reloaded gametypes.
