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.
