Thought id run this up to help noobs with online OFP
1st off you need to get 'The Eye' which will let u surf for games to play on.
Go to 'waiting for players' tab and scroll though and join a server with a low ping and no PL (packet loss) If it says 'Force Conection' it means the game has started and you will have to wait for the next map.
1/ When u do get onto a server u need to pick a side to play either EAST or WEST . Once you pick your side hit 'START' so it changes your icon to green. The game wont be able to start unless everyones name is green and there is no one in the 'Player Pool'
Another pointer is if u are in the top slot u are responsible for turning off the AI players. To do this hit 'DISABLE ALL' dont forget or this will cause lag on the server and piss people off as u have to restart to get rid of them
2/ The next stage is to pick the role of player you want to be, once u move over u are ready to go.
3/ Third stage is the mission briefing..it may take a while to get here cus of map loading so be patince. Once it does load and u are ready hit 'IM READY' again this changes your name to green so the game can go ahead. All players names must be green before the game starts.
Please stay at your PC and dont dander off when the game starting up, because it holds others back waiting on u. Make your selections quickly and click the buttons for when u are ready so the games starts fast with no hassle
admin codes are as follows
#vote admin (name) << gets u admin
#mission << goes onto next map
#missions << when u are admin lets u select missions
#restart << lets u restart game
#kick (name) << to kick people
all the above can be down if there is no admin but with everyone voting ie:
#vote kick (name)
the boxes down the bottom show your ping and peoples statis and will also let u see who is the admin
RED = Not ready/lagged out/or if its on the briefing screen they are still loading
YELLOW= made selection but havent hit 'im ready or start'
GREEN= ready to go
The online games varie for CTF (re-spawns) - Co-Op (u only get 1 life) and every man for himself (re-spawns)
hope that helps everyone
