SMOD Troopers is a multiplayer version of SMOD 40 a, made from scratch. I started making this to take a break from UnderHell... (Which isn't dead at all)

It will requires Source SDK Base 2006 to function...

Players start in their base, and then have to choose between 4 classes, each with different speed, weapons and start health.
Each class will be very diverse and some have UNIQUE habilities or weapons.

The level design has been specifically thought to give certain classes advantage depending on the situation, some vents shaft are only available to the scout class, while some Energy Core generator can only be deactivated with the gravity gun, and where some enemies such as the APC, can only be killed with explosives weapons, that only the Heavy and the Assault have.

The game also features the SMOD Money system, that is used to buy health or battery, that is NECESSARY to use the flashlight or nightvision in some dark areas.
Money can be gained trough killing enemies, finding it in crates or trying your luck at the base's casino's SLOT MACHINE ! (thanks to anders for the prefab!)

The objective of the campaigns, will be to explore every area, in order to find a specific object, to bring back to the base.

Once all objects are gathered, depending on what the objects and their uses are, a Left 4 Dead Ish finale event will be triggered, and the players will have to defend their base until the escape is possible either via a rescue vehicle, or any other ways.

Here's how you can create a server to play with friends :

  1. Forward your ports to host a listen server : Portforward.com
  2. Launch the map with sv_lan 1 set
  3. While IN the map, after the server is launched, turn sv_lan 0, and type heartbeat in the console.
  4. Get your IP address from Whatismyip.com
  5. Give that IP to your friends, adding the port number at the end which should be :27015
  6. To conntect to a server via ip, type in the console "connect (ipnumber)"
  7. Enjoy!

Hey everyone, it's been over 3 years, I've been busy with another project.

But couple days ago a friend of mine called MikeFunks figured out a way to make SMOD work a little bit in multiplayer, so I thought I'd fix up SMOD Troopers and upload a fixed version.

There is nothing really new, and it is still unfinished and buggy because I cannot edit or compile maps for the Source Engine 2006 anymore, Valve has removed that capability so I cannot create or edit content for the levels of this mod.

However the rest should still be as you remember.

Here's how you can create a server to play with friends :

  1. Forward your ports to host a listen server : Portforward.com
  2. Launch the map with sv_lan 1 set
  3. While IN the map, after the server is launched, turn sv_lan 0, and type heartbeat in the console.
  4. Get your IP address from Whatismyip.com
  5. Give that IP to your friends, adding the port number at the end which should be :27015
  6. To conntect to a server via ip, type in the console "connect (ipnumber)"
  7. Enjoy!

I know this requires a bit of messing around but it works pretty well.
The reason why the multiplayer was broken is because Valve "unplugged" the Master Server for Source Engine 2006, therefore there is no Master with the server lists, and VAC will shut down the server after 5 minutes it's up.

By turning sv_lan to 1 upon server launch and then to 0 ingame, it somehow does not send the query to the Valve Servers, and therefore works around this limitation.Don't expect to see any servers in the Server Browser, but at least you should be able to play it with your friends.

Or if any of you want to play with other people, you can always chat on the SMOD Troopers Steam Group Chat.
Don't expect any more releases or fixes for this, that's about as much as I can do without the ability to make new maps so...

Looks like this is goodbye boys!

Although SMOD Troopers might end in development here, the SPIRIT of Source Engine Coop Gameplay is not getting abandoned, keep your eyes peeled for Underhell, we might have some COOP Maps in there.

I discovered this game and though it was very cool
but now when I boot the game up I get an error that says "cannot find vids:xvid decompressor" and a white screen with diagonal black lines going across the screen. I still hear the intro music, but I can't figure out what it is. Please help, I want to play with my friends.
