III. Gameplay Guide

Connect to a server by opening the lobby and join a server by clicking its name. The lobby will show the current map, number of players, and IP of servers running. Alternatively, you can manually join a server if you know their IP and their forwarded port.

There are six gameplay modes:

Choose a team, RED or BLU, or select AutoSelect and let us choose your team for you. Press N to change your team, or to Spectate and watch the action! Keep in mind you tie up a player slot on the server as a spectator!

Press M to open the Class Menu and choose your class. Choose option 0 to let us pick a class that might suit you!

The Heads-Up Display on your screen shows your class, the time left in the map, your team, your ammunition, and your current health. All classes (except for the rifleman) have ammunition that replenishes over time. Certain classes will also have HUDs unique to them. Depending on the game mode, the HUD will display the locations and status of the intels (Capture the Flag), the status of the Control Points (Control Point), the number of players left and the status of the Arena Point (Arena), the health of the Generators (Generator), or the team-specific countdown timers and the status of the KotH Point (King of the Hill).

The scoreboard shows the current score of every player. It also displays the name of the current server and map.

Capture the Flag:
Find the opposing team's intel and return it to where yours usually sits to score a point. Score a certain number of points to win the round!

Control Point comes in two flavors, Standard or Attack/Defend:
Standard: Capture all the Control Points to win the match.
Attack/Defend: RED Team must capture all the Control Points to win, and BLU Team must prevent RED from doing so.

There is no respawning in this mode, and the last team standing wins the round. If neither team finishes the other off, then there is a control point you can capture to win the round. Round wins are cumulative and the team with the most rounds won at the end wins the match.

An original mode exclusive to Gang Garrison 2. Both teams have a special generator which are the objectives of the map. A team must keep their generator running and destroy the enemy generator to win.

King of the Hill:
There exists a lone control point in the center of the map. Both teams compete to take control to start their countdown. First team to hold onto the point for 3 full minutes is victorious.

Dual King of the Hill:
An original mode exclusive to Gang Garrison 2. Teams must hold control of both control points to run their timer down. Capturing the enemy control point will secure your own until the enemy can take it back. First team to hold complete control for 3 minutes wins.

IV. The Maps

A. The Official Maps:

To run a server using only these maps, open gg2.ini and make sure no custom map list is specified ("MapRotation=" under [Server] should be left blank). To change the order the maps are played, change the numbers next to the map names; the maps will play in numerical order from least to greatest. Place a zero next to a map to ignore it.

1. ctf_truefort

4. ctf_classicwell
by fishmatt

A nostalgic scenario with an industrial flavor, there are multiple routes around these imposing complexes but only a few ways in and out. Keep an eye on the upper route!

14. koth_harvest
by Wherewolf

A community-made arena map gone official! RED and BLU fight for control of an abandoned farmyard. It is unknown what significance this location holds to both factions, but fear keeps invesigators from delving any further.

15. dkoth_atalia
by Wareya

A community-made Generator map that was converted for DKotH. It's advised to take over the central complex to gain the advantage for when making an assault on the enemy control point.

16. dkoth_sixties
by Ozoh

A close quarters industrial map. Use the twists and turns to your advantage to eliminate the enemy team and seize their control point.

B. Using Custom Maps:

To run a server using custom maps, make a folder called "Maps" in the same path as Gang Garrison 2.exe and place the compiled map file (it will have a ".png" extension) inside. Create a text file with any name, like "maplist.txt", and open gg2.ini. Next to "MapRotation=" under [Server], type the name of this file.

Open your maplist file and type the name of each map you want to play in order
For instance:


would play ctf_2dfort, a custom map with the filename "ctf_mynewmap.png", and then ctf_orange. Then it would play ctf_2dfort again. These names are case sensitive.

V. The Options Menu:

These options can also be set in gg2.ini before running the game. You can also bring up the menu by pressing 'ESC' in-game.

Player Name: Set your visible name in-game. The maximum length is 25 characters.

Hosting Port: Set the TCP port clients will connect to if you host a game.

Player Limit: Set the number of players, including the host, allowed in your game.

Announce to Lobby: Show your server to players in the Lobby. Setting this to off allows you to host a private game for those who know your IP.

Fullscreen: Set to On to run in fullscreen. Setting it to off means the game is windowed.

Ingame Music: Toggles the ingame music track on and off.

Particles: Toggles smoke and explosion effects. Turning this off or using the alternative particles may reduce graphical lag.

Gibs: Toggles body parts when a character explodes. Turning this setting down may reduce graphical lag.

Healer Radar: Toggles the in-game healer radar HUD for Healers.

Show Healing: Toggles healing HUDs for the Healer and players who are being healed.

Additional Healthbar: Toggles a floating healthbar above your head in game.

Kill Cam: Toggles the killcam when you die. Turn it off if you get angry easily!

V Sync: Toggles V Sync. Useful if you notice 'tearing' on your screen during the game.

Controls: Change your in-game controls to suit your own taste.
