Difficulty decrease?

Hello again, I wasn't able to find the search function for this site as I can't update flash on my computer. If this is an issue already dealt with in another thread, the mods may want to move this post.

Starting a map over after getting 90% of the way through is kinda bumming me out, so I was wondering if there are any mods for this classic title that decrease the difficulty, namely by adding the ability to save game in the middle of a map?

Thanks for hearing me out.

As long as you are playing the PC version (NOT the PS2 version), you should be able to quick save with the F6 key and reload that quicksave with the F9 key as long as you aren't in multiplayer mode. It should even work for single player custom mod maps (like in Forgotten Bunker, Last Stand, or Showdown). In those first 2 mods though, there's a bug in some levels where you never get past the loading screen if you quick save past a certain point, or even anywhere in some levels, and try to reload. You'd have to restart the level (or at least don't quick save past that certain point if you can find it) in that case, so it's possible that other custom made maps will have that problem.

 

As for the difficulty, regardless of which version you play, you can still change it in game (rather than right before starting the game on the first level) by pressing the escape key to access the menu, click options, then game, and make sure that the "difficulty" area is set on easy if you want the easiest level. You shouldn't be having a hard time on easy even without quicksaving though; the enemies do very little damage, aren't that accurate, and you get a lot of reaction time to get out of a camera's view before it triggers the alarm (2 seconds instead of just half a second on Superspy).

You should be able to set the difficulty before you start the level.

I'll double check that for you though.

 

 

 

Thanks, I hate to say I'm already playing on easy though and have become somewhat of a damage sponge. My ego shooter skills have become quite rusty the past few years to say the least. It probably doesn't help matters that the other shooters I 've played through in the last months are of the 'run-and-gun' variety. I am improving though, finally making an effort to score head shots during combat just today. Things are much smoother now to say the least.

Hmm, now that was embarrassing. I didn't see the word save on the main menu and got it into my head that saving mid-map was impossible, not sure why I thought that really as all previous lithtech games have a quick save. It even has a category for saved games on that sub-menu. *turns red*

F6 gets the job done, thank you. I did find a mod that turns the cameras off, not sure that I'll use it now that I'm playing in line with the NOLF's dynamic instead of running through the map blasting everything.

No problem, and I did hear about that mod that disables the security cameras, but I never thought of the alarm going off as much of an issue (aside from the missions where it can't go off or you fail period) because most of the time enemies *still* don't know where you are, but they will be able to spot you faster. Still, even on Superspy I can just blast my way through everything, but that non stop piercing noise it makes is annoying. Hopefully if you play it enough you'll get that good too.
