Here it is! Hey Jake has done it again



No One Lives Forever 2 Modernizer - Beta 1

---------------------------------
The goal of NOLF 2 Modernizer is to help fix some long standing bugs, and update some more outdated features of the game.

The beta releases are meant to get this mod out the door sooner! However there's sure to be bugs, and probably bugs in the base game that I didn't catch. Before commenting about a crash, please check the known issues section for more information!

Requirements:

You'll need to install VC++2019 Redist before playing, if you have Windows 10 you should be good, but just in case you can check here:

support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Install Instructions:

- Extract all files to your NOLF 2 directory
- Run NOLF2.exe
- Select "Custom"
- Make sure "Modernizer" is the only item checked
- Run the game and enjoy!

Features:

- Widescreen support
- Re-implemented several graphic effects including anti-aliasing
- Rewrote the entire input system
- Marginally better controller support
- Jukebox to play some of your favourite in-game tunes
- Several original game crashes have been fixed
- Game updates are automatically checked in the Multiplayer Menu

Known Issues:

The following might not be fixable:
- Anti-aliasing causes a ~1 pixel offset at the edges of 2d elements
- Jukebox Singles take a full second to load
- Due to how the input system was re-written, all controls are now saved in controls.cfg. This doesn't work with the base game so it's not compatiable with any other mods!

The following can be fixed in a future patch:


- Cate's missing from the main menu, we don't know where she went!
- Jukebox can occasionally crash while switching songs
- Jukebox songs are sorted in alphabetical order
- Some Jukebox Singles have duplicate songs
- Some cutscenes (with 4:3 mode disabled) contain overlays that don't have black bars
- Controller support is only supported during gameplay, it doesn't work on menus
- Crosshair can be off-centered when switching to specific resolutions. A restart will fix this
- Switching to a lower resolution from a fullscreen windowed mode can make the window get stuck in borderless mode
- Almost certainly there's a multiplayer browser crash in there somewhere!
- Music can sometimes be a little jumpy (I've been told the base game had this issue too, but I'm looking into it!)
- Dedicated Server doesn't work (A new version will be released in a future release)

Misc Notes:

- Controller support is pretty bare bones, this will be touched up in a future patch
- Controller support is not entirely "supported" during the beta releases
- Most of the controller is rebindable except for the rotation/view axis (Right Stick), you'll have to do that manually in controls.cfg!

Controller Code Labels:

Below is a list of controller codes and what they are on the controller.
this is based off of the basic Xbox 360/One controller. However a PS4 or other controller should work fine!

##1 = A
##2 = B
##3 = X
##4 = Y
##5 = Back
##6 = Guide
##7 = Start
##8 = Left Stick
##9 = Right Stick
##10 = Left Shoulder
##11 = Right Shoulder
##12 = DPad Up
##13 = DPad Down
##14 = DPad Left
##15 = DPad Right
##16 = Left Axis X
##17 = Left Axis Y
##18 = Right Axis X
##19 = Right Axis Y
##20 = Left Trigger
##21 = Right Trigger

Custom Controller Mappings:

The new input system was written to take advantage of SDL2's game controller api. This enables non-xinput devices to work as if they were xinput devices. If your controller won't work you could try community bindings located [here'>(https://github.com/gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB/).
Simply drop the `gamecontrollerdb.txt` file into your NOLF 2 game folder and Modernizer will attempt to load it on start-up.

Special Thanks:

- My Partner - For putting up with quite a few late nights
- Nathan Grigg & Monolith Mark - For getting me some wonderful song title suggestions
- SPAWN - For his immense help with testing & organizing the multiplayer community
(Check out his site https://www.spawnsite.net)
- Everyone at LithFAQ - Because they're all such a helpful bunch
- - To whoever actually brings NOLF back from legal hell
- And You - For enjoying such a fantastic forgotten gem

Install instructions

Backup your existing NOLF 2 installation!! You'll have to restore the original install if you want to play without this mod enabled.


Once that's out of the way...

- Extract all files to your NOLF 2 directory
- Run NOLF2.exe
- Select "Custom"
- Make sure "Modernizer" is the only item checked
- Run the game and enjoy!

New Assault map (10 years in the making) nearing beta testing stage
Posted by:Legbat
time:2020-05-31 - 17:52

 

I started this map a long, long time ago (before taking over a DECADE off from both playing and editing) and decided to work on it again about 6 months ago. After MANY revisions to the original design and mistakenly telling Spawn several times that it's close to completion, I think I'm pretty happy with the (almost) final result. I've learned a lot of tricks in dEdit since my early days in mapping and I tried to incorporate many of them into this new unnamed map, which is a space station. Since I haven't been able to come up with a clever name for it yet, I'll be seeking your input during the beta playtesting period. There's new interest in playing NOLF online lately and this is my effort to keep that momentum going. Maybe this might even encourage other former mappers to fire up dEdit again.

New maps and scripts

2 New (Previously unreleased) Maps for Nolf1

Sauron's Playground


This map was close to finished when I stopped playing back in 2008, it is a assault map and is a tribute to some of the people I played most with back then. There are audio comments here and there from Sauron, Maniah, Nakita, Urukai, Deano and Freezeline.

Hall Of Odin


This map was orginally released for the Pegasus Mod for Contract J.A.C.K, and later NOLF2 back in 2005. I used Talon to convert the LTA to a ED file.
This is a small DM map in 3 levels with tunnels between them.

Both are included in the latest Spawnsite or UnityHQ mappack.
(Identical Map Packs, but different wrapping)

_______________________________________
Custom Map Database


This is a database of all maps and singleplayer mods I have been able to find. It will show information about creator, year, game modes etc
Some of these maps have incomplete information because I couldn't find any info about them. You can search by creator, game, name of the map. Every map can also be shared by copying the link below them. If you have additional information please leave a post in the forum.

Check it out here

_______________________________________
Server/Player Statistics

Me and L.Icepick from eGo Clan have also been working on a way to get statistics from the games. How many players, when are people online etc. This script also contains a monthly highscore table.
This website runs a light version of the same script that will show online servers and players, but the full version with a lot more detail runs on nolfserver.ego-clan.com.

Check it out here

_______________________________________
Updated MapPacks for Nolf1 and Nolf2

I have been searching high and low for various mappacks that had all the maps I knew existed but couldn't find a fully updated one.
So I combined all the ones I found, and also added maps that were single downloads from various websites.
Both mappacks will target the nolf installation and put the mappack where it is supposed to be. The installer will not leave any uninstaller, to get rid of the mappack again, simply delete it from the Custom folder. Both map packs were created in February 2019.

Nolf 1 Custom Map Pack
Nolf 2 Custom Map Pack

The most up to date mappack for Contract J.A.C.K is the one Emm@ Peel created, available at UnityHQ.net

www.spawnsite.net is back
Posted by:Spawn
time:2018-12-18 - 13:51

 



I believed that the files for this site was gone for good, but then it was not...

A friend of mine used to host this website until 10 years ago and he just happend to have a backup of it all.
Not that I am aware of a huge No one lives forever player base these days or modding community for that matter, I figured why not put the site back up.
Someone might still find what they need here.

The forum is converted from Invision 1.3.1 (which is very old ) to phpbb3.2.4 and as far as I can tell, its a successful convertion now. Many of the images in the forum were hosted elsewhere, which means that if the host is gone, so is the image.

Keep in mind that this was over 10 years ago.

Anyway. Hope it can be useful for someone, somewhere

If you never played any Nolf game and wants to check it out or cannot find your cd anywhere,
check out Unityhq.net or Nolfrevival.tk

If you are a returning player like me, there is a few things that needs to be tweaked in order to play
No one lives forever 2 online, you can read more about that HERE
