If you have a previous version of eXtreme+, move or delete them from your mod folder, if you wish to continue using the audio files, you can leave them!, the mod will however run without them, but for the moment you will loose the spectator music and all custom played sounds.
Create a folder in your Call of Duty root folder, i.e. C:\Program Files\Call of Duty 2\. Name it whatever you like (but keep it neat!), I have used xtreme as the folder name, but I suggest you use something like your clan or server name, so that there aren't a million other people with the same name which can cause a headache for the clients side! Unpack the contents of the ZIP file to that folder.
Once, unpacked, associate the configuration files (.cfg's) with notepad or if your fancy something like 'Ultra Edit' and associate the iwd's with 'Winrar'. Open ALL the configuration files and set things the way you want them, the settings that are in there at the moment are to my liking and work quite well but it's your choice not mine. Please spend A LOT of time doing this so you get it all nice!
Open up the file called custom.iwd (using Winrar) and in there you two folders, go in to the one called exclanlogo and you will find gsc file that holds the server name, associate the gsc with notepad or the like and edit the name in between "" quotes ONLY!, save the file and then your clans name will appear bottom right.
Within custom.iwd go in to the other folder called localizedstrings, and associate the str file with you text editor (do not use EXCEL!), inside this file is where you set your custom text to appear on screen in the game, follow the instructions carefully and DO NOT ALTER the structure of the file, just the text between the quotes (you must leave the quotes)
Once you're happy that it all, make a shortcut to your COD2 MP exe, place it somewhere you can find it easily and right click on it and select properties. In the section called target, edit the line to read
"C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2" +set fs_game myextreme+exec server.cfg
Your path and folder name (myextreme) may be different but it's the +set etc.... that is important,
Double click the shortcut and you should be up and running!
If you're using Linux or FreeBSD then you most likely already know more than me about setting your server up. But essentially the same instructions apply but the path names, shortcuts and execution methods will differ. I am sorry, I am a Windows user and can't offer much more help with Linux!
Remove all the IWD files apart from your custom.iwd, this has not changed in 1.3. Also you can keep the music/sound files if you use them. Remember to go through the new server.cfg carefully making your selections
On how YOU want the mod to run.
Please report any bugs in the COD2 mod forums at www.gom.me.uk
