FC Mod (replaced by v1.3 patch)

New maps and mods are coming out quickly. If you release something (even a beta) please post it here. Be sure to give details in the topic such as Map/Mod name and version

Moderator: Moderators

Do you want the FC commands to be map-extendable? (meaning mod maps can add in their own commands)

Yes, but I won't add commands for my maps

FC Mod (replaced by v1.3 patch)

Postby [RDH]Zerted » Thu Jun 22, 2006 8:02 pm

Important: The FC Mod has been integrated into the UnOfficial v1.3 patch. There will be no new updates to the FC Mod itself. Any changes (and there have been improvements) will only be done on the v1.3 patch. Download one of the v1.3 patch development versions today to checkout the new FakeConsole.


After 15 months, the second main version is finally released: FC Mod Jan 29th, 2008
:faint: :runaway:

FC Mod stands for the FreeCam and FakeConsole mods. It is really two mods rolled into one. Assuming no one notices any major problems, I'll post it to Filefront in a couble of days. Please answer the new poll. If you don't understand it, just ask.

Download Link 1:
Website -> Folder -> Zipped File (4.29MB)

SWBF2_FC_Mod_Jan-29-2008.zip

What it Does:
-Adds a shortcut key for faster selection of the 'Auto-assign' button when picking teams.
-Adds over 170 commands to the Fake Console list.
-Everything the FreeCam vJan-19-2008 mod does

IMPORTANT:
-Read the readme in the included SWBF2_FreeCam_Jan-19-2008 mod too
-Other players do not have to have this mod installed to see its effects.
-Improper use of this mod WILL casue MAJOR CRASHES for YOU and OTHER PLAYERS.

The readme is really long, so are some other parts of it:
Hidden/Spoiler:
How to install:
-1) (Install at your own risk)
0) Uninstall any older version
1) Install the included SWBF2_FreeCam_Jan-19-2008 mod (check its readme for installation steps)
2) Backup the retail 'ingame.lvl' from '<SWBF2 Installation Folder>\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\'
3) Delete the retail 'ingame.lvl' from '<SWBF2 Installation Folder>\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\'
4) Move 'ingame.lvl-FC_Jan-29-2008' to '<SWBF2 Installation Folder>\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\'
5) Move 'FC_Mod_Strings.lvl to '<SWBF2 Installation Folder>\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\'
6) Rename 'ingame.lvl-FC_Jan-29-2008' to 'ingame.lvl'
7) Play the game

How to run a Fake Console command:
1) Enter the pause menu, then press the 'Fake Console' button.
2) Search through the list to find the command you want to run.
3) Click on that command (the list should close).
4) If you decide not to run a command, click on one of the blank lines to close the list

Random Bits of Info:
-Including comments and whitespace, this mod added over 2000 lines of code.
-At the moment, there is no known way to run Fake Console commands on a dedicated server.
-When using Fake Console commands, keep in mind that what the host sees will not always be what the clients see.
-If you are a client in a server which is running Fake Console commands, you should run the same commands as the server. This will improve your gameplay and remove the laggy feel.

Possible Roadmap (not in order of hardest):
-Bug fixes
-Easy user requests
-Source code release
-More Fake Console commands
-More command toggling/hiding
-Map specific Fake Console commands
-An installer (is installing this really that complex?)
-Adding 'FakeConsole: ' to the output text of each command
-Put the retail Fake Console commands in a section of their own
-Support for plug-in command system (allows mod-maps to automatically add in their own commands, visible only when playing their map)


FreeCam controls:
    Home/End keys = up/down
    left/right arrow keys = left/right
    up/down arrow keys = forward/backward
    +/- keys = fast/slow
    Mouse = look around or steer left/right while moving

How do I activate the Fake Console after having installed the new Common.lvl and how do I get into Free Cam Mode ? You said nothing concerning this yet.

Cheats basically, along with various useful commands, such as infinite reinforcements, infinite health for all (very useful for making movies)

Yes, but his fake console has only one command at the moment. I ran through all of the console commands and sent him a list of every useful one. He should be adding them to the next release. (about 30 commands or so)

Good point. I changed the pause menu. The pause menu is the thing you see when you press [Esc]. This is where the new buttons are.

The Fake Console is the version from the mod tools. All I did was make the button visible. The single command has something to do with idiot mode. I think idiot mode may be changing the ping values to colored bars, but the mode is disabled.

I'm told there are other commands from bf2_modtools. I don't know, I can't run it (DVD version :cry: ).

If I can add those other commands to the console, any command which can be used to cheat in MP will only be displayed in SP.

When the other commands are fixed, will you put a list here of all the commands?

If I get other commands working, they will all be added in the change log: Added Fake Console command XXXXX

I was planning on putting the next release on filefront. I may be able to put this one on savefile, but I don't have time today.

I'm not sure if it's just my game, but a combination of the shell.lvl and common.lvl will make the game crash when swtiching maps in multiplayer.

YAY!! I just tried the free camera, it's good to see it in SWBF2. Even if it does mess up multiplayer it worth switching the common.lvl just to take screen shots.
