    Sof 2 & Xp

    I have installed SOF2 on XP and the game judders when I fire any weapon and it is very bad when I use a machine gun. The same problem happens no matter what settings I set the game to. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem.

    I have all the latest downloaded drivers and have flashed the latest bios and temps are ok. My pc runs Jedi K 2 and MOH very well and very smoothly.

    I found it very choppy as well. I did have everything maxed out as I won't play a game if I can't turn all the goodies on. Still didn't like the graphics or the play control.

    I only played it about 30 minutes. Hated every minute of it...worst purchase I ever made and wish I could take it back. Oh well, guess it'll find a nice home in a desk drawer.

    Played VERY smooth on my system. It's 98SE though. The graphics were very nice.
    I have the same problem you have when playing IL 2 Sturmovick (WW2 flight simulator) The stuttoring occurs when shooting or when an aircraft makes impact with the ground. Tried EVERYTHING. Oh well.

    I see from other forums that there are lots of people with this problem. I can use the random mission picker with no problems, its just the single player.

    I do get random issues with the Random Mission selector. Incredibly low framerates one time. About 2 fps. Had to exit the game and restart. No problems at all w/ the single player. Maybe a forthcoming patch will alleviate the problem.
    Try experimenting with a bunch of different drivers. I'm using the 27.50's

    Hold tight, a patch will surely come along, I had to wait 2 months till they got Tribes 2 patched enough so it would work on my rig...hang tight..in the meantime I am steering clear of SOF2 till it gets better.the demo was choppy as hell. Thanks for the heads up

    I have found a solution!!!!!

    Use the cheats to jump to the second map. I have done this and running at 1280 x 1024 and the game is running very smoothly.

    Level cheats are: -

    Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix (PC) Single Player Cheats

    Activate the cheats:
    Bring down the console (default: SHIFT + ~) and type "sv_cheats 1" (minus the quotes/it is case sensitive) and press ENTER. You can also type devmap to load a specific map and have the cheats enabled once the map loads. sv_cheats 1 is write protected in the regular single player game. You need to load a map first using the map or devmap command. So you would type map pra1 or devmap pra1 at the console and hit enter. When the map loads, use sv_cheats 1 and hit enter to enable the cheats.

    Unlock All Levels
    Bring down the console and type "raven 1". All levels can now be selected from the menu.

    Other codes
    Code: Result:
    god enables the God mode
    give XYZ give item XYZ
    give all give all items
    notarget invisibility
    noclip no clipping mode
    pinkspider infinite power
    cmdlist list all commands
    map XYZ start map XYZ (see list with mapnames)

    I had the same problem and i resolved it by turning off my firewall. If you are using Zone Alarm or sygate or if you're just using the crappy version of microsofts firewall turn them off or shut them down before playing online sof. it blocks just enough of the udp packets so u get lag when you're shooting. Works great for me now. If this works send me a private message would like to know if it worked for u guys.
