The big day has arrived - the Standoff prologue episode has been released! Before going on with the details, here is the important bit: DOWNLOAD LINK.
Still with us? Good. Once you have downloaded the 67MB file, simply run it and the installer will hunt down your Secret Ops installation and install everything you need. If you run in to any problems, I'm sure people are standing by to answer questions in the Standoff forums. It's also a good place to send your praise to the team behind the mod. Other than that, enjoy!
Here's a quick list of known problems and fixes for the Standoff prologue -
There are also some additional notes in the Standoff launcher's troubleshooting section. If all else fails, try this thread.
- Game performs an illegal operation upon launching - This is a Windows 2000/XP problem. The game won't run in Windows 2000, but in Windows XP, right click standoff.exe in your Secret Ops folder and select properties, then from the Compatibility tab, set the file to Windows 95 compatibility mode.
- Game gives the error "gl_d3d_5::createzbuffer attach failed 87" - Go in to the Standoff launcher options, and select "16 bit". 32 bit mode has problems with some graphics cards, mainly Radeons.
- The game appears to lock up - The Secret Ops engine has a problem where it stalls at certain points. You can just wake it up by moving the mouse.
