Questions and answers.

Can I choose who plays the Hidden instead being the victim of a random selection? Yes, go to Settings→Workshop and change in the rule “Selection of the Hidden” the global variable C from 0 to 1. The player in the first slot of the lobby will be always the Hidden. ​
Hey, where is the friendly fire from the HL2 mod who do the spice of the game? It is disabled by default but you can enable it, go to Settings→Workshop and change in the rule “Friendly fire” the global variable G from 0 to 100. (0 = No damage, 50 = Half damage, 100 = Full damage). You can also enable the revenge option by changing in the rule "Friendly fire vengeance to attacker" the global variable H from 0 to 2. (0 = Off, 1 = Same amount of damage, 2 = Double amount of damage). ​
Can I change how long the game last? Yes, go to Settings→Modes→Deathmatch and change “Game length in minutes” to the value you want. ​
How do I modify the numbers of players in the intervention team? Go to settings→Lobby and change “Max FFA players” to the value you want. You need at least 2 players, one soldier and one Hidden.
Why sounds aren’t working? Sounds issues are from Blizzard side and we can’t do anything about it except waiting for a new patch. Until then, when a player trigger a sonic alarm trip, the player who placed it will receive an alert message.
