BETTER RED THAN DEAD : Nolf 2 SP Level by Johnny LaRue (March/07)

=====================================================

Version1.0 http://ca.geocities.com/jlar_mods@rogers.com/nolf2brtd.html

HomePage: http://ca.geocities.com/jlar_mods@rogers.com/index.html

 

Cate is imprisoned in a Soviet outpost & must escape. This mission has more of a "hard edge" to it as Cate is a little bloodied up & there isn't as much gadget play compared to my previous level. Includes increased blood spray/splatter, custom skins, custom textures, modified sniper rifle, molotov cocktails, cinematics & a walkthru.

 

INSTALLATION:

=============

 

Extract the Better Red Than Dead.rar file

you should get a BRTD folder, put this folder into your NOLF2 \ Custom \ Mods directory (if you dont have a custom/mods directory you may have to create them).

 

e.g. NOLF2 \ Custom \ Mods \ BRTD \ BRTD.rez

 

now fire up the NOLF 2 Launcher, & hit the custom tab & there should be a listing for "BRTD". Check the BRTD slot & then run the game. Go into singleplayer, then chapter list, & my mod will be the only mission on the list, select it & play! (**i made this mod with nolf2 v1.3)

 

If you have not finished NOLF2, the chapter list option will not show up in the Singleplayer interface. Just doubleclick on the included ChapterListFix.reg file & select "yes" when prompted. (thanx to Alexa & Discomime)

 

**Note** do not skip the starting intro cinematic (it's not that long ayways), if you try to skip it, it will only stop the camera & the cinematic won't run the way it's supposed too. Sorry about that, Nolf2 cinematics are a *****.

 

Build Time: 10 months on & off

 

SPECIAL THANX

==============

 

-Monolith for making such a great game

-Spawnsite.net, Sparedlife.com, Spydave.net, The site that shall not be named.com, Coty's site, Wiky's Site & Sovmusic.ru

 

-Thanx to Spawn & Coty for helping me with various aspects of this mod, thanx to Spydave for his cinematic help, thanx to SparedLife for letting me use his skins (again) & for his chapterlist idea & thanx to Old Salt for beta testing the original BRTD & giving me some ideas on how to improve & expand it.

 

-My beta testers

 

CREDITS

=======

-Green soviet camo skin by: SparedLife

-SniperRifle skin from Mob Enforcer

-Molotov Cocktail model from Mob Enforcer, skin by JLAR

-Used the Bar prefab from Nolf2, reskinned by JLAR

 

 

BUGS

====

The intro cinematic sometimes has sound distortions, this is because nolf2 doesn't like playerlure's, soundfx & camera objects all at once!?

 

When Cate holds the Molotov Cocktail, her winter cuff isnt on the model, forgive my dismal modeling skills.

 

 

ENJOY!

Thanx people for giving my level a go!

The Vodka bottle is the molotov cocktail weapon item. I'm not sure what else you would like a molotov cocktail to do?

 

Wow, you guys are genius! God Bless you!

 

Btw: are there any cut scennes?

 

Thanx for your extremely generous compliment! :D There are small cutscenes at the start & end of my level.

is there a possibility to play the 2 levels of yours (together with the rest of the game maybe...) as coop mission?

that'd be sweet :D

hey john,

 

I am actually looking into this. My GrowOp level was having some transition issues (it's made of 3 maps), when you finish the first map, it wont transition to the next. If i do manage to get it working , you will probably still have to play each level, one rez at a time. There would be some major textures / attributes/ conflicts/ if both levels were in one rez. I'll keep you posted......

 

JLAR :)

To be honost , i never really got into multiplayer gaming (mostly online Co-op with a buddy). I'm not even sure what would make a good Doomsday map :D

 

thanx for the kudos!

Hey TG* Zymon, (nice Thief Avatar, i miss that game)

 

Did you enable my mod through the NOLF2 startup launcher? When you first launch Nolf2, select the custom tab, you will see my mod listing "BRTD". Make sure this is checked.

 

Now launch Nolf2, go into singleplayer / chapterlist

 

my mod will be the only one on the list.

Thanks johnny :) Im a huge thief fan ^^

 

About brtd, I ofc choosed that one at customs and when I get into the game it says 1.3, BRTD in the right corner so it shud be right, still when I open up the chapter list only the maincampaign lavels are there :(

 

I tried with GrowOp and that one worked fine :/

 

And since I can check brtd in the startup launcher I havent misplaced it right?

That is really strange? Do you see my modified interface when you load up the game? (the red screen with the soviet soldier? Double check my readme file, maybe there is something you missed.

 

I also just realized that when my mod is enabled, you can simply start a new game without having to go into the chapterlist.

 

Launch Nolf2 / Singleplayer / new game / choose difficulty

 

I can't believe i missed this?! :huh:
