Soldier of Fortune: Payback is the third installment of the Soldier of Fortune game series. Unlike the previous two Soldier of Fortune games, which were developed by Raven Software utilizing the Quake 2 and Quake 3 engines, Payback was developed by Cauldron HQ, developed with Cauldron's in-house CloakNT engine, used in their previous First Person Shooter game, Chaser. This game is the first game of the series released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was released on 14.November.2007. Upon being refused classification by Australia's OFLC, Activision released the game on February.28.2008 in Australia.

Description

This mod alters the, IMO console-oriented, HUD of the game into a smaller and more subtle HUD. It is specifically designed for 16:9 resolutions, but it may also work just fine on other aspect ratios. Give it a try! This mod only changes the single-player HUD. I've checked the server browser multiple times and nobody seems to be playing this game online. So it looks like a waste of time and effort to make it work in multiplayer too. This mod also removes the little square that's always in view, showing you where to go. I personally can't stand having a floating icon on my screen all the time, hence it's removed. So you might have to do a bit more exploring to find out where you have to go next. When you get close to your destination, a circle will still appear to guide you closer.
