Instructions for Windows

1. Start
This mod is an instagib mod for Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars (TM), beta version 0.1 released August 18 2008.
All players have railguns, no other weapons. The railgun kills players in one hit, has infinite ammo and no spread. The game is slightly faster than regular ETQW, because you can sprint in all directions and forward sprint is faster than normal.
A new gametype is introduced, Team Deathmatch (TDM), where the team with the most kills wins, either after reaching a scorelimit or when the time is up. The scoreboard has been changed to show stats more relevant to TDM.

2. Installation and game setup
Make a folder called instagibmod in your Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars game folder (C:\Program Files\id Software\Enemy Territory – QUAKE Wars\ or similar). Place instagibmod-win32.pk4 and instagibmod-pak000.pk4 (and any mod maps) in the new instagibmod folder.
To start Instagibmod, start your Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars game. On the main menu screen, after the introduction video, click the “Mods” button in the lower right corner. Select Instagibmod ETQW beta 0.1 and click Play. The game will restart and load Instagibmod. You can then join an Instagibmod server online or play against bots offline.
If you are having troubles starting a map/campaign using spawnServer, make sure si_rules is set to instagibTeamDeathMatch or instagibCampaignTeamDeathMatch.

For server admins
Make sure your server config doesn’t override the new default values of pm_sprintspeedforward, pm_sprintspeedstrafe and g_showPlayerArrows, and that si_rules is set to instagibTeamDeathMatch or instagibCampaignTeamDeathMatch. The scorelimit can be set with the console command admin setTdmScorelimit.

3. Uninstalling
ETQW saves game data in three locations: the folder where you installed the game, in your Local settings folder, and in My Documents. Remove the following folders and their content to uninstall Instagibmod:
* C:\Program Files\id Software\Enemy Territory – QUAKE Wars\instagibmod
* C:\Documents and Settings\\ Local Settings\Application Data\id Software\Enemy Territory – QUAKE Wars\instagibmod
* C:\Documents and Settings\\My Documents\ id Software\Enemy Territory – QUAKE Wars\instagibmod

On Vista, the Documents and Settings folder is called Users and the Local Settings folder is C:\Users\\AppData\Local. If you have installed the mod by downloading it from a game server, you might not have an instagibmod folder in your game folder. The paths listed above might vary depending on your system, but hopefully you will have an idea of where to look.
