About:

This is meant to be a comprehensive, detailed, specific guide to NeoTF. It
offers tips and strategies as well. This guide does NOT strive to be TF 
newb-friendly in any way. It is recommended you already know how to play 
normal TF before you start getting into NeoTF.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update Log:

v0.01 1/9/03  Got the basic format up
v0.1  1/13/03 Cool! A new version of NeoTF (1.8.1) came out when I was

2. Introduction to NeoTF and about binding

        a. Introduction to NeoTF

NeoTF is a server-side mod. This means that it's basically a tweaked 
version of normal TF (Team Fortress Classic, Team Fortress 1.5, whatever). 
NeoTF draws from a lot of Half-Life mods for models, sounds, etc. So when you
first join a server running NeoTF, you only have to download a few models, 
sprites, and sounds. Very few. NeoTF works by implementing a bunch of new 
console commands that simply must be bound to a key. After you've got all 
your keys bound you're ready to start a slaughterin' ;)

'Great, but how the hell do I bind keys?'
	
        b. About binding

If you know how to bind keys, disregard this. Anyway "binding" keys makes 
certain keys do certain things. Namely console commands. When you press your 
control button (Ctrl on the keyboard) it makes you crouch (if your controls 
are on default). The console command for crouch is +duck. So if you wanted to 
bind crouch to say, the m key, you'd enter exactly this into the console:

        bind m "+duck"

It's that easy :) You can bind keys in-game if you know the console commands 
for the actions, or out of game by going to your config.cfg file for TF. To 
find this go to (windows default stuff here): 

My Computer->Local Disk (C:)->Sierra->Half-Life (might be Counter-Strike if 
you bought the CS retail pack)->tfc->config.cfg 

You'll probably have to tell your computer to open the file with Notepad. 
There, to do the same thing (binding crouch to the m key) you'd just do:

        bind "m" "+duck" 

                Note: Quotes have to be around the key this time.

   'Ok, so what are the commands for binding and where should I bind them?'

No matter what anyone tells you, you only NEED 8 binds for NeoTF, and even
that can be cut down. It really depends on your preferences. Here's a list of
what I think is the minimum binds for NeoTF:

                _special2
                buildspecial
                buildspecial2
                detspecial
                detspecial2
                +sgcam
                sgcam_switch
                togglemenu

                        Note: The last three (+sgcam, sgcam_switch, and 
togglemenu) do the same thing for all classes. 

They each do a different thing for each class (aside from +sgcam, 
sgcam_switch, and togglemenu), so I won't explain all that yet. However, 
you'll want to have _special2, buildspecial, buildspecial2, and togglemenu 
easily reachable. This means, for most people, having it close to the w, a, 
s, and d keys. I'll let you figure that out on your own. Play with it until 
you have something comfortable that doesn't interfere with necessary commands. 
Take a look at your other binds before you start binding things without 
thinking. Also, you may not even need ANYTHING if you can use togglemenu 
easily, but it's up to you.

    'Ok, is that really ALL the binds you need?'

Well, no. These are the minimum number of binds necessary. If you have the 
keyboard space (and the brain capacity) to put even more binds into the game,
then go ahead. There are some more binds, but they'll be listed below as they
apply to all nine classes.

'Ok cool...wait what do +sgcam, sgcam_switch, and togglemenu do? Don't forget
that!'

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Universal commands

Calm down I was getting to that! Hold down the key bound to +sgcam to look 
through a "camera" in your team's SG(s). If your team has more than one SG, 
then while holding down the key for +sgcam, press the key for sgcam_switch to 
switch to another camera. These aren't REALLY necessary, but they can be 
useful. The best thing about these commands is that, since you won't be able 
to move or do anything else while you're holding down the +sg_cam key, you 
can bind these commands to pretty much any keys. I have mine bound, for 
example, to [ for +sg_cam and ] for sgcam_switch. Since you can't use these 
commands from the NeoTF Menu (togglemenu) it's good to bind them somewhere. 
What's togglemenu now you ask?

Togglemenu is a new feature, and is pretty cool. Press the key bound to the
command "togglemenu" and a small menu will come up with a list of NeoTF
options that you can perform as the current class you're playing. Each 
option will be numbered, and pressing the corresponding number will execute 
the command for that option. Executing one of the available options or 
pressing the togglemenu key again will make the menu go away. Make sure 
though, that you don't have keys 1 through 6 bound to something other than 
the default (slot1, slot2, etc.), or you won't be able to use the menu 
for those keys. For instance, executing the togglemenu command while you're a
spy will bring up a small menu that will look like this (text is exactly as 
it is in-game):

        1. Call Airstrike (Point at sky first!)
        2. Deploy Hoverboard
        3. Destroy Hoverboard

So, pressing 1 will call an Airstrike and will also make the menu go away. 
Pressing the key bound to togglemenu again will bring up the menu again.

Another neat feature to NeoTF is that when executing command, neotime the 
game will tell you the time left on the current map. The time will be 
displayed on the screen and will be stated vocally by the Half-Life Vox in 
hours, minutes, and seconds. No need to bind this, just remember the command,
neotime.

Yet another nifty feature that comes with NeoTF is location and class info. 
Putting %c into speech will give your class (for instance, say: I'm a %c 
while you are a spy will result in -> YourName: I'm a spy). Saying %p will 
give the position you're looking at/standing on. For instance, if you're 
outside the respawn by the ramp room in 2fort, saying %p will produce 
'outside upper respawn.'

You may notice for the soldier and engineer classes that there's an option in
the NeoTF menu (command: togglemenu) that says "Call for Upgrade." This works 
in conjunction with the %c and %p features and NeoTF items that require 
upgrading. For example, if you are an engineer and you use the "Call for 
Upgrade" option while standing outside respawn by the ramp room in 2fort,
exactly this will result:

        (TEAM) YourName: [Engineer]: HELP! Need a MultiGun Upgrade Outside 
                        Upper Respawn

If you're a soldier in the same place, you'll request a SAM Launcher upgrade 
(see SOLDIER section for info on SAM Launchers). So, you see that you'll 
request the upgrade whether the MultiGun or SAM is built or not (see ENGINEER 
section for info on MultiGuns).

There's one more thing/set of commands that applies to multiple classes, and 
it's the whole Mortar thing. First off, an hwguy can build a Mortar (with
_special2) and can detonate it (with detspecial). The scout, demoman, medic, 
and pyro classes can each build a MortarMarker, can detonate that Marker, and
can call Mortar Strikes. 

The command to build a MortarMarker: mortar 
The command to detonate the MortarMarker: detmarker
The command to call a Mortar Strike: mortarfire

When a scout, demoman, medic, or pyro builds the MortarMarker, it looks like 
a glowing napalm grenade (it glows the color of the player's team). When an 
hwguy builds a Mortar, it looks like a level 1 SentryGun without legs. Once a
MortarMarker is built, the builder must put his crosshairs on the Mortar 
and execute command, mortarfire (this can be done with togglemenu also). The 
Mortar will then fire a powerful missile at the MortarMarker's location. The 
MortarMarker will receive damage and after a couple of Mortar Strikes, it 
will explode. Also, Mortars and MortarMarkers each have a lifespan of five 
minutes. However, an unlimited number of MortarMarkers can be built (but one 
per person). More details on the Mortar in the HWGUY part of section 4.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Class by class descriptions, fighting tips, etc.

        Here's every class with NeoTF-related descriptions, tips, and 
anything else you need to know. If you're a total newb you should probably 
read up on the classes as they are in normal TF before you start studying 
this.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SCOUT:

Primary NeoTF commands
		
        +sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
        sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
        togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
        _special2: Ring of Shadows
        buildspecial: Warp Disk
        buildspecial2: Radar
        detspecial: Detonate built Warp Disk

Secondary or optional commands to bind

        mortar: Builds MortarMarker
        detmarker: Detonate built MortarMarker
        mortarfire: Fires Mortar

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Ring of Shadows: When activated, this makes the scout invisible to 
all enemy SGs and MGs for a period of time. The amount of time depends on the
server specifications, but it's never that long, so it must be used 
carefully. When you hit the _special2 key, there will be an audible beep, 
then a whirring sound will continue until the "ring" loses its power. 
Everyone will hear the beep and the whirring sound, so if you were thinking 
of silently sneaking through the enemy base, you were wrong. When your Ring 
is about to lose power, you'll get a message on your screen that tells you. 
Then you'll get the same message once more. After that, you'll be visible to 
all enemy SGs and MGs. You cannot activate the Ring of Shadows while carrying
a flag/key, but if you activate it before you pick up the flag/key, it will 
not be deactivated and it will act as it normally would. Therefore, try to 
sneak into an enemy base, staying out of sight/range of SGs and MGs, then get
to the flag or key, activate the Ring of Shadows, grab the flag/key, and 
haul ass out of there. You only have one Ring of Shadows per life.

        Warp Disk: When you hit buildspecial, a Warp Disk will appear at your
feet. The Warp Disk looks like a glowing EMP nade (it glows your team's 
color). Pressing the buildspecial key after you build the disk will warp jump
you to its location. If enemies are close enough to the Warp Disk when you 
warp jump to it, then you'll frag 'em :) The Warp Disk can be destroyed by 
enemy fire when discovered, and you can't use it or build one when you're 
carrying a flag/key. When you die, or after five jumps, the disk explodes. 
You carry two disks per life. Executing the detspecial command detonates the 
disk. If you've just been frozen by a pyro (see PYRO section for info on 
freezing), then teleporting back to your Warp Disk will thaw you as well as 
get you away from that nasty pyro. It's a good idea to put a Warp Disk near 
the enemy's flag, so after you capture it, you can warp right back and take 
it again. It can even be used for defensive purposes in the same way. That 
is, put it right by YOUR team's flag and when you hear that an enemy takes 
it, tele-frag the bastard. No class can survive it.

        Radar: Executing the buildspecial2 command will emit an audible beep
(everyone can hear this one too) and will bring up a small text message 
where you would usually see chat. The message will look exactly like this:

                > In range: X players, X TFCmechs, X NeoTFmechs.

"Players" are any players, whether they're on your team or not. "TFCmechs" 
are SentryGuns, Dispensers, and Detpacks (since a scout can disarm a 
demoman's Detpack by standing over it). NeoTFmechs are MultiGuns. Also, if 
something is "in range" you will see a green line for each player or mech. 
The line will be pointing in the direction of a player or mech. The brighter 
the line, the closer the player or mech. You can use the Radar unlimited 
times, however, each time you use it, you have to wait maybe 2 or 3 seconds 
before you can use it again. You can still use the Radar while you're 
carrying a flag or key.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a scout, the 
menu looks exactly like this (if something is separated by "///" then the 
first command comes up when you first press togglemenu, and the command 
following the "///" comes up when you execute the command behind the "///"):

                1. Activate Radar
                2. Activate Ring of Shadows
                3. Build Teleport Disk
                4. Detonate Teleport Disk
                5. Build Mortarmarker///Call Mortar Strike
                6. Detonate Mortarmarker

SNIPER:

Primary NeoTF commands
		
        +sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
        sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
        togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
        _special2: Build Anti-Missile/Laser Rocket Pack///Fire Laser Rocket
        buildspecial2: Build Beam Ladder///Dismantle Beam Ladder
        detspecial: Detonate built Anti-Missile Launcher
        detspecial2: Detonate built Beam Ladder

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Anti-Missile/Laser Rocket Launcher: Executing the _special2 command 
will cost you 25 armor and will build an Anti-Missile/Laser Rocket Launcher 
(hereafter referred to as an AM Pack). It looks like your normal 
weapons/items pack. The AM Pack will shoot down any soldier RPG rockets, 
helicopter Guided Missiles (NOT Hellfire missiles), or pyro Incendiary Cannon
rockets within range with its own type of projectile (see the SOLDIER section
for info on helicopter weapons). It can't always do it though; it's not 
foolproof. After you build an AM Pack, pressing the _special2 key again, when
your sniple rifle is charged, will launch a Laser Rocket. The pack fires a 
slow-moving (but powerful) rocket and it will go towards wherever your red 
dot is pointing until it hits something. You'll have to wait about 1 second 
after a Laser Rocket hits to launch another, but you can launch as many as 
you want, and it doesn't cost armor or health. Good for taking out enemies 
who are hiding behind walls, or even useful for when you're hiding yourself, 
and want to fire into an area. The pack can be detonated with the detspecial 
command. There is only one AM Pack built per sniper.

	Laser Rockets: If there is a nearby soldier and/or Laser
Rocket Launcher MultiGun (see the ENGINEER section for info on this) nearby,
you can launch Laser Rockets from these as well; with or without a nearby 
Anti-Missile/Laser Rocket Launcher pack. Simply have your sniper rifle
charged and execute the _special2 command. If there is one of these things 
nearby, a Laser Rocket will launch from it, and from there you can control it
with your red dot as you usually would. If you have multiple AM Packs, 
soldiers, and/or Laser Rocket Launcher MultiGuns near you, you can launch 
Laser Rockets from all of them! Just use the _special2 command as many times 
as necessary and Laser Rockets will launch from every single thing. If you 
get enough snipers on a map, have engineers build MultiGuns that are upgraded
by the snipers, and/or have many soldiers around, you can REALLY give the 
enemy hell :) The soldiers don't need to have their RPG launchers out either,
you can launch Laser Rockets from them regardless of what weapon they have 
out.

        Beam Ladder: Executing the buildspecial2 command will cost you 50 
armor and will build a Beam Ladder. When it's fully built, the Beam Ladder 
looks like two white shafts. Get in front of the ladder, hold down your 
USE key (deafult is E), and look up to ascend. You can descend the ladder by 
doing the same thing, but looking down. The ladder will slowly sap your 
armor, then your health from you at a rate of 2 units per second when you're 
climbing, so don't dawdle on it. When you reach the top, you can jump from 
it. You cannot use your sniper rifle on the Beam Ladder, just like you 
wouldn't be able to use it on a normal ladder. [whoopis]CamperX gets credit 
for this tip: It may be a good idea to build the Beam Ladder in an area, then 
go find a sniping spot in another area in the same vicinity. When an enemy 
comes and sees the Beam Ladder, he'll look for you around it and you can 
snipe him from where you are. Thanks CamperX; good idea! ANY PLAYER on ANY 
TEAM can use the Beam Ladder with the exception of soldiers, hwguys, and 
pyros. Once the ladder is built, standing close to it and executing 
buildspecial2 again will dismantle it (you'll get your 50 armor units back).
Executing the detspecial2 command will detonate the Beam Ladder. You cannot 
use or build a Beam Ladder while carrying a flag or key. 

        Flash Grenades: The sniper class has a secondary grenade in NeoTF. 
Most servers are configured so the sniper starts out with two of them, but if
it isn't (or you need more) pressing USE in front of the Medic-Upgraded 
Dispenser will give you some (see the MEDIC section for info on the Dispenser
Upgrade). Since the Flash Grenade is a secondary grenade, just hit your 
secondary grenade key to use them (default is G). When the Flash Grenade 
"activates" it releases an expanding white circle. The range and height is 
much bigger than the engineer's EMP grenade, but the circle expands slower. 
Any enemy in the range will be blinded (will only see white) for a few 
seconds, then his vision will fade back in.
	
Note: Anyone played that OTHER, SIMPLETON mod, Counter-Strike? The blinding 
effect of the Flashbang in that game is the same as that of the Flash Grenade
in NeoTF.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a sniper, the
menu looks exactly like this:

                1. Build Anti-Missile Launcher
                2. Launch Laser Rocket
                3. Build/Dismantle Beam Ladder
                4. Detonate AM Launcher
                5. Detonate Beam Ladder
                6. Toss unprimed Flashgren

SOLDIER: 

Primary NeoTF commands

        +sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
        sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
        togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
        _special2: Launch Remote-Controlled Helicopter///Fire Guided Missile
        buildspecial: Build SAM Launcher///check SAM Launcher health
        buildspecial2: Launch Helicopter Bomb
        detspecial: Detonate Helicopter
        detspecial2: Detonate SAM Launcher

Secondary or optional commands to bind

        hellfire: Fire hellfire rocket from Helicopter
        toggleboost: Activate boost of speed for Helicopter
        togglehover: Make Helicopter hover in place
        toggleview: Switch view between Soldier and Helicopter view

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Remote-Controlled Helicopter: Soldiers (by default) carry one Remote 
per life. Executing the _special2 command will launch a small remote 
controlled helicopter and the soldier view will be changed to the view from 
the helicopter cockpit. If you are on the Blue or Green team (the darker 
colors), the helicopter model is an Apache (smaller, and with one set of 
blades). If you're on the Red or Yellow team (the lighter colors), the 
helicopter model is an Osprey (wider, and with two sets of blades). Also, for
people who can't remember this, when the helicopter is damaged, it will 
briefly flash its team's color. Once launched, the helicopter will 
automatically be moving at normal speed (slightly slower than the soldier 
walks), and will have 9 ammo units. The helicopter's direction is controlled 
by the mouse. The body is transparent (when viewed from inside) so you can 
fly in any direction and still see, aim, and fire weapons. The helicopter 
receives damage from all weapons (teammates' included). When it is damaged, a
message will appear in the upper-left corner of the screen telling you the 
percentage of health left. The weapons and other features of the helicopter 
are described below:

                Helicopter Guided Missiles: Once the helicopter is launched, 
executing the _special2 command again will fire a guided missile. The 
missile's motion can be controlled by where you point the crosshairs of the 
helicopter (similar to the sniper's Laser Rocket, but more powerful and
somewhat faster). These cost one ammo unit each. The missile's trail is color 
coded to the team member that fired it.

                Hellfire Missiles: Once the helicopter is launched, executing
the hellfire command will fire a Hellfire missile. This missile is much much 
more powerful and automatically homes in on the nearest enemy. However, you 
have to wait until an enemy is in range. When one is in range, you will see a
little stick figure icon on the right side of the screen. The Hellfire 
missile moves slightly faster than the normal guided missiles, and costs 2 
ammo units. The missile's trail is color coded to the team member that fired 
it.

                Helicopter Bombs: Once the helicopter is launched, executing 
the buildspecial2 command will fire a helicopter bomb. The bomb shoots out a 
few feet in front of the helicopter's nose and explodes about three seconds 
after it is fired. It does more damage than the guided missiles and costs 2 
ammo units. The bomb's trail is color coded to the team member that fired it.
		
                Toggle Boost: Once the helicopter is launched, executing the 
toggleboost command will give the helicopter a 5 second boost of speed, 
during which you can't launch any weapons. After executing the command, you
must wait another 10 seconds to use it again. 

                Toggle Hover: Once the helicopter is launched, executing the 
togglehover command will make the helicopter hover in place. You can still 
change the direction it's facing, but it will not move forward. The 
helicopter will become opaque from the inside view though, making it harder 
to aim guided missiles.

                Toggle View: Once the helicopter is launched, executing the 
toggleview command will change views from that of inside the helicopter 
cockpit to that of the normal soldier view. When the view is changed, the 
helicopter still acts as it would if you were viewing from inside the 
cockpit. That is, when you move your mouse, the helicopter still changes 
directions to face where your mouse is pointing (the soldier does this when 
you're viewing inside the helicopter cockpit too). This is useful in many 
ways. Firstly, if you see the red pentagons in the center of the screen and 
the health in the bottom left corner is decreasing, then it means you, as the
soldier, are being attacked. Hit toggleview quickly and blast the enemy. 
Also, if you want to just monitor an area (for defensive or offensive 
purposes) then fly the helicopter to a spot, park it using togglehover, then 
hit toggleview. Now you can do your thing as a soldier, and whenever you see 
the stick figure icon appear on the right side of the screen, hit hellfire. 
You could also hit toggleview real quick and launch a guided missile at 'em 
if you dont want to spend the two ammo units.

        SAM Launcher: Executing the buildspecial command will build a SAM 
Launcher. It will cost you 75 armor units to build. When first built, it will
look like a transparent SentryGun base that glows your team's color. You need 
a friendly engineer to upgrade the SAM by touching it. When upgraded it will 
look like a SentryGun base with a black Assault Cannon (hwguy's default 
weapon) floating directly above it. The SAM will shoot down any enemy 
helicopters, as well as helicopter-launched weapons. Hellfire missiles and 
bombs will detonate immediately when launched, but guided missiles will not 
detonate immediately, and the helicopter itself will take a certain amount of
hits before detonating. The SAM's range is small, so it's best to build them 
close to your base's entrace(s). You can only have one SAM Launcher built per
soldier.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a soldier, 
the menu looks exactly like this (if something is separated by "///" then the 
first command comes up when you first press togglemenu, and the command 
following the "///" comes up when you execute the command behind the "///"):

                1. Build SAM Launcher///SAM Launcher Health
                2. Detonate SAM
                3. Launch Aircraft///Launch Missile
                4. Detonate Remote
                5. Drop a Bomb
                6. Call for Upgrade
                7. Togglehover
                8. Toggleview
                9. Toggleboost

                        Note: The upgrade you call for is that of the SAM 
Launcher (whether you have one built or not). For info pertaining to the 
"Call for Upgrade" option, see section 3: Universal commands.

        Landmine: Executing the buildspecial or _special2 command (either one
will work, but I think the buildspecial command is more intuitve) will cost 
you 25 armor and will build a Landmine. The Landmine will appear at your feet 
and looks like a small, gray circle. You can only have two Landmines built at 
a time. Executing the detspecial command will detonate ALL mines 
(Sensormines included). Landmines will detonate themselves two minutes after 
they are first built.

        Sensormine: Executing the buildspecial2 command will cost you 25 
armor and will build a Sensormine. The Sensormine will appear at your feet 
and looks exactly like the Landmine but is transparent and has a slight 
pulsating glow. When an enemy comes in range of the Sensormine for detection 
(the range is relatively small) the Sensormine will beep loudly (everyone in 
the vicinity will hear the beep) and you'll see exactly this message come up 
in the area where chat usually appears:

        > Enemies in sensor mine range: DETONATE NOW!!!

You can only have two Sensormines built at a time. Executing the detspecial 
command will detonate ALL mines. Sensormines and Landmines have exactly the 
same power. Sensormines will also detonate themselves two minutes after they 
are first built.

        SaberDisc: You may want to bind the saberdisc command to a key if 
you have room. Executing this command will launch a slightly fast moving 
killer frisbee. The disc's trail will be color-coded to your team. The 
SaberDisc will fly exactly to where your crosshairs are pointing when you 
first release it. After that, the disc's motion cannot be controlled. It will 
fly straight out until it hits something/someone or it reaches its maximum 
distance. At that point, it will fly straight back to you. The recoil fom the
disc when you catch it is very strong. If you jump up and backwards just 
before catching the disc, you'll fly up and back VERY far. This is much 
better and easier than Pipebomb jumping. You can still use the SaberDisc 
while carrying a flag or key. Since it's hard to aim the disc, only use it on
SGs/Mgs/etc, or when you can sneak up behind people (especially snipers). The
SaberDisc is pretty powerful, but you only get 20 throws per life (most times
you won't get the oppurtunity to use all 20 anyway).

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a demoman, 
the menu looks exactly like this (if something is separated by "///" then the
first command comes up when you first press togglemenu, and the command 
following the "///" comes up when you execute the command behind the "///"):

                1. Deploy Land Mine
                2. Deploy Sensor Mine
                3. Detonate all Mines
                4. Toss SaberDisc
                5. Build Mortarmarker///Call Mortar Strike
                6. Detonate Mortarmarker

        _special2: Build Anti-Grenade/Healing Pod
        buildspecial: Build Anti-Grenade/Healing Pod
        buildspecial2: Release a Snark
        detspecial: Detonate Anti-Grenade/Healing Pod
        detspecial2: Detonate released Snarks

Secondary or optional commands to bind

        mortar: Builds MortarMarker
        detmarker: Detonate built MortarMarker
        mortarfire: Fires Mortar

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Anti-Grenade/Healing Pod: Executing either the _special2 or 
buildspecial commands will build the Anti-Grenade/Healing Pod (hereafter 
referred to as just "the Pod"). The Pod looks like one of the old HL 
Deathmatch weapons, which is hard to describe. It's basically a small green 
and black, odd looking cylinder. Building this costs the medic all 100 armor 
units he can carry. By default, the pod will neutralize any secondary 
grenades, soldier rockets, demoman pipes, and spy Airstrike missiles (see SPY
section for info on that) in its medium-sized range. The Pod will usually get 
every single one of these weapons that comes in range, but sometimes one or 
two thing may get through if there is enough of them and the Pod will be 
damaged or destroyed. Once built, the Pod will have a lifespan of 2 minutes 
either way. As well as neutralizing these weapons, any teammate in range will
be healed at a rate of 10 health units per second. It will also dispel the 
effects of infection, flames, spy tranquilizer, spy gas hallucinations, etc. 
Executing the detspecial command will detonate the Pod, but you cannot 
dismantle it. The Pod is the best way to defend SentryGuns and MultiGuns. The
only ways an SG or MG can be killed when a Pod is close to it, is if a sniper
can get a shot at it from far away, and/or if the SG or MG has a blind spot, 
so you can get it with weapons that won't be neutralized by the Pod. More 
strategies for SG/MG placement are in the ENGINEER section. 

        Snarks: Snarks_kick_ASS! Executing the buildspecial2 command will 
cost you 10 armor units and a Snark will be released. They jump out from you 
and after a 3 second delay (during which they'll run far away from you) 
they'll start looking for a victim. All Snarks released will focus on the 
same victim. They have a 15 second lifespan (including the first 3 second 
delay), during which they'll repeatedly bite their victim. They have a small 
amount of health, but they're so small and move so fast it's hard to shoot 
them. They'll also attack SGs and MGs, and more effectively since the Guns 
can't run away. If their selected victim dies, they'll start searching for 
another while they themselves still live. If they can't find an enemy at any 
point (including when they're first released) they'll start attacking the 
medic who released them instead. When they die, they detonate, but you can 
also detonate the Snarks manually with the detspecial2 command. However, if 
the Snarks attack you, you cannot use detspecial2 to detonate them. You'll 
just have to run and wait for them to die. Snarks will rarely let their 
victim get away. They're able to jump incredibly high, and can even jump in 
and out of water. By default, medics carry 5 Snarks with them, and can have 3
live Snarks out at a time (it costs 10 armor each time you release a Snark).
These are very useful for taking out pesky SGs or MGs that you can't seem to 
kill any other way. The Snarks will not be detonated by a Pod, so just run by
the SG or MG and spam the Snarks like grenades.

        Medic Dispenser Upgrade: When a medic touches a normal Dispenser in 
NeoTF, a rotating red cross will appear over the Dispenser. Now it will heal 
teammates at a rate of 10 health units per second when they come close to it,
along with giving out ammo and armor units as it usually would. Also, if 
sniper go up to it and hit the USE key, (default is E) they will receive 
Flash Grenades (see the SNIPER section for more info on Flash Grenades).

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a medic, the 
menu looks exactly like this (if something is separated by "///" then the 
first command comes up when you first press togglemenu, and the command 
following the "///" comes up when you execute the command behind the "///"):

                1. Deploy Anti-Gren Pod
                2. Detonate Anti-Gren Pod
                3. Spawn a Snark
                4. Detonate Snarks
                5. Build Mortarmaker///Call Mortar Strike

Secondary or optional commands to bind

        +hook: Deploy Grappling Hook

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Mortar: Executing either the _special2 or buildspecial command will 
cost you 50 armor units and will build a Mortar. The Mortar looks like a 
level one SentryGun without legs. When the Mortar takes damage, you will see 
the percentage of health left in the upper left corner. It has a lifespan of
5 minutes. You do not get kills for when teammates call Mortar Strikes (for 
info on how other classes use the Mortar, see the last part of section 3).

        Grappling Hook: You may want to bind a key to the +hook command if 
you play hwguy at all. Holding down the key bound to this command will cost 
you 25 armor units and a beam (color coded to your team) will attach itself 
to whatever your crosshairs are pointing at. Keep holding down the key and 
the beam will pull you toward where it's attached. After the initial 25 
armor, keeping the beam up will cost you 5 armor units per second. This is 
very useful for getting up to high places, because the hwguy couldn't do it 
otherwise. Also, you can hide in the corner of a ceiling and wait for an 
enemy to come by. The Hook's range is pretty good, so try to use it any time 
you need to get to a hard-to-reach place. In the NeoTF menu for the hwguy, 
"Deploy Grappling Hook" is equivalent to holding down a key bound to +hook 
and "Release Grappling Hook" is equivalent to releasing the key. You can 
still use the Grappling Hook while carrying a flag or key.

        Armor Sharing: Any time a teammate touches an hwguy he will receive 
full armor. This does not cost the hwguy any armor.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as an hwguy, the
menu looks exactly like this:

                1. Deploy Mortar
                2. Detonate Mortar
                3. Deploy Grappling Hook
                4. Release Grappling Hook

PYRO:

Primary NeoTF commands

        +sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
        sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
        togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
        _special2: Activate Jetpack
        buildspecial2: Activate Freeze Cannon
	
Secondary or optional commands to bind

        mortar: Builds MortarMarker
        detmarker: Detonate built MortarMarker
        mortarfire: Fires Mortar

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Jetpack: Execute the _special2 command to activate your Jetpack. This 
will give you a short boost in whatever direction you're pointing. It's best 
used when you point your crosshairs at a 45 or more degree angle. The Jetpack
gives you a huge boost when used this way. For example, you can get from the 
upper part of your base on 2fort to that of the enemy's in two boosts, and 
you can get all the way out of the lower flag pit of crossover2 in one boost.
Very useful for fighting also, as the pyro tends to need to use his 
flamethrower on enemies for long periods of time, while avoiding enemy fire. 
Run around your enemy and hit him with flames, then when he starts to put you
on the defensive, or throws a nade, give yourself a Jetpack boost, land 
behind him, and start at it again (or freeze 'em). The Jetpack consumes 15 
armor units per use. When carrying a flag or key you can still use the 
Jetpack, but it will give much less of a boost. You'll have to use it more 
times to reach the same area you could easily reach before you were carrying 
the flag or key.

	Freeze Cannon: The Freeze Cannon is a very powerful weapon. In fact 
it's the most powerful the pyro has when used correctly. Execute the 
buildspecial2 command to activate your Freeze Cannon. You can do this at any 
time, and it doesn't cost any armor. However, there are certain conditions 
that must be met in order for you to succesfully freeze an enemy:

		Your enemy must have both feet on the ground (no freezing in 
water, midair, etc.)
		Your enemy must not be near their respawn area (this applies 
to most Neo-weapons, such as Snarks)
		Your enemy must be in your crosshairs, but it doesn't matter 
what weapon you have out

Also, the freeze cannon's range is short, so try to get as close as possible.
If you execute the buildspecial2 command but cannot freeze your enemy, you'll
get a message telling you why (either 'no enemy in range', 'your enemy must 
have both feet on the ground' , or 'you can't build here'). You have 5 
freezes per life, and you won't lose any armor for it. You can only freeze 
players (no SG or MG freezing). Upon succesfully freezing someone, blue beams
will eminate from you and your enemy will be encased in ice. While they are 
frozen they will receive environmental cold damage. While your victim cannot 
move from the spot they are on, they can still spin around and shoot you, 
and/or throw nades at you. Make sure when you freeze someone you run around 
him and avoid his fire. It's a good idea to just run circles around him and 
hit him with your flamethrower (your flames will not melt the ice in which
he's trapped). If you don't kill your enemy when he's frozen, the freezing 
effects will wear off after a short time.

	NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a pyro, the 
menu looks exactly like this (if something is separated by "///" then the 
first command comes up when you first press togglemenu, and the command 
following the "///" comes up when you execute the command behind the "///"):

		1. Jetpack Boost
		2. Activate Freeze (Point at Enemy first!)
		3. Build Mortarmaker///Call Mortar Strike
		4. Detonate Mortarmarker

SPY:

Primary NeoTF commands

	+sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
	sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
	togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
	_special2: Call an Airstrike
	buildspecial: Call an Airstrike
	buildspecial2: Deploy Hoverboard
	detspecial: Destory Hoverboard

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

        Airstrike: Point at the sky and execute either the buildspecial or 
_special2 command to call an Airstrike. There will be a beep (which everyone 
will hear) and a beam running from where you pointed your crosshairs in the 
sky to you. This is what the trajectory of the Airstrike will be. Everyone 
will see the beam too, so it'll be pretty obvious to the other team that 
you're a spy. About five seconds after you call the Airstrike, a volley of 
about ten powerful rockets will fly down from the sky hitting the area you 
were standing on when you called the Airstrike. When the Airstrike hits, you 
WILL lose your disguise. Make sure you're not standing in front of a live 
SG/MG or enemy when the Airstrike falls. You'll have to wait 60 seconds after
you first call the Airstrike to call another. You can call an unlimited 
amount of Airstrikes, and they don't cost you any armor. The Airstrike 
rockets will be neutralized by a medic Pod, but otherwise there's no way to 
stop them. The only limitation is that this ONLY works when you point at the 
actual sky. The Airstrike doesn't work indoors. It's best used for taking out
SGs and MGs, as it is hard to make an enemy stay in a spot for five seconds, 
especially if they see/hear you call the Airstrike. If an SG/MG is under 
partial cover, make sure you adjust the trajectory accordingly (i.e. point 
your crosshairs at an angle so that you can see the sky from standing right 
next to the SG/MG). You can still call an Airstrike while you're holding a 
flag or key.

        Hoverboard: Execute the buildspecial2 command to deploy the 
Hoverboard. A yellow, snowboard-looking thing appears under your feet, and 
you move forward slowly ahead. Use your mouse to point yourself in whatver 
direction you want. Press your USE key (default is E) to stop in place. You 
can even go backwards by pressing the back key (default is S). The Hoverboard 
will not affect your disguise but, like the Airstrike, if you use it, it will
be obvious you're a spy. The Hoverboard is most useful in transportation, but
can be used in combat to. You can fly over the top of an enemy and then try 
to stab them in the back. It's also very useful for getting into a 
harder-to-reach entrance of a base. The Hoverboard costs you 10 armor units 
to build, and then 5 armor units per second while you're flying. Execute the 
detspecial command to "destroy" the Hoverboard. This doesn't hurt you, and is
the only way to stop moving without losing armor (if you press E, you'll stop
moving, but you'll still lose 5 armor units per second). You cannot "build" a
Hoverboard in water (if you try, you'll be told you can't do that and you'll 
lose ten armor units) and if you are on a Hoverboard and fly onto/into water,
it will automatically be destroyed. You cannot "build" a Hoverboard while you 
are holding a flag or key, but if you activate the Hoverboard before you grab
the flag/key, you can still use it.

        Aqualung: In NeoTF, spies carry an aqualung so they will not drown. 
You can stay under water as long as you want and you will not lose any health 
or armor. This makes water areas a good place to hide, feign, and/or put your
disguise on.

        Enemy Team Chat: In NeoTF spies can "hear" enemy team talk (if they 
hit the U key rather than the Y key to talk). When they use team talk to say 
for instance, 'I hope the other team doesn't have a spy who's seeing this,' 
you'll see this come up in the area where you see talk messages:

                (ENEMY) EnemyName: I hope the other team doesn't have a spy 
                                  who's seeing this

If you are too far away from the enemy using team talk, the text will be 
garbled. You still cannot hear enemy team talk through the microphone.

        Disguise Sharing: By default a normal NeoTF server will not have this
feature enabled. When it is enabled, any disguised spy will also make nearby
teammates disguised as well.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as a spy, the 
menu looks exactly like this:

                1. Call Airstrike (Point at sky first!)
                2. Deploy Hoverboard
                3. Destroy Hoverboard

ENGINEER:

Primary NeoTF commands

	+sg_cam: Use friendly SG camera
	sgcam_switch: Switch view to another friendly SG camera
	togglemenu: NeoTF Menu
	_special2: Build a MultiGun/Check built MG's health
	buildspecial: Build a MultiGun/Check built MG's health
	buildspecial2: Build/Dismantle BouncePad
	detspecial: Detonate built MultiGun(s)
	detspecial2: Detonate built BouncePad

What these commands do, how/when to use them, tips and other features:

	MultiGuns: Execute either the _special2 or buildspecial command to 
build a MultiGun (hereafter referred to as MG). It will cost you 50 armor, 
and a transparent, glowing tripod-looking thing will appear in front of you 
(it will glow the color of your team). An MG will be hurt by any damage done 
to it, including your teammates' fire. There's no way to repair your MG 
(DON'T hit it with your wrench, this WILL damage it). Execute either the 
buildspecial or _special2 command again to check your MG's health. 
Once built, the MG must be upgraded by someone in order to work. The MG is 
upgraded by someone (other than another engineer) by touching it, that is, 
running up to it. The MG will turn into a different type of gun depending on 
what class touches it (thus the name, MultiGun). Keep in mind that ANYONE 
(excluding engineers) can upgrade MGs. This means that when you first build 
an MG (when it's "inert"), an enemy can come and touch it. When this happens,
the MG becomes the enemy's, and it will attack anyone on your team. When this 
happens you'll have to destroy your MG before you can build another, and you 
CANNOT detonate captured MGs. There's also no way to dismantle an MG, so you 
have to detonate it if you need to build one again. Detonate your MG by 
executing the detspecial command. You'll want to detonate it if it's too 
damaged, if it isn't the type of MG you want, or if it runs the risk of being 
captured. Try to use the "Call for Upgrade" option on the engineer NeoTF menu 
to help make sure your inert MG is upgraded by a teammate. Be careful though, 
because spies will hear that team talk (see the SPY section above for info on
Enemy Team Chat). Here's a list of all the incarnations of the MG:

		(SCOUT upgrade) Displacer: When a scout touches an inert MG, 
it turns into a Displacer. This looks like a tripod with a bunch of weird 
mechanical attachments on it (sorry that's the best I can do). When an enemy 
comes in its medium range, it will charge up (a bunch of different colored 
beams will eminate from it) and it will zap him. Then, the victim will be 
repeatedly teleported to random locations both in and out of the physical 
areas of the map, but the victims will incur damage only when they're 
teleported in front of the MG again. They'll die eventually, but they may
be teleported into an area where they can drop a nade and do some damage to 
something/someone, and the more health and armor the victim has, the longer 
it will take for them to die.

		(SNIPER upgrade) Laser-Rocket Launcher: When a sniper touches
an inert MG, it turns into a Laser-Rocket Launcher. This looks like a tripod,
but with yellow beams circling around it. When an enemy comes within its 
large range, the gun will automatically fire a rocket that will home in on 
the enemy. The rocket is similar to the sniper's laser-guided rocket, but 
more powerful. The rate of fire is very slow though, so to avoid this MG get 
in range, then when it fires find some cover, then run past the MG (or try to 
destroy it).

		(SOLDIER upgrade) Rocket Launcher: When a soldier touches an 
inert MG, it turns into a Rocket Launcher. This gun is much smaller than the 
normal MG, and looks like a brown square with a few holes in it for launching
rockets (again...sorry for the crappy description, just remember that it's 
the smallest MG). When an enemy comes within its large range, the gun will 
fire a volley of three rockets, then after about 5 seconds, it will fire 
another volley. Since the MG is small, put it in a hard to reach/see area so 
the victim will never see it coming. 

		(DEMOMAN upgrade) Mirv Grenade Launcher: When a demoman 
touches an inert MG, it turns into a Mirv Grenade Launcher. This gun looks 
like a tripod, but every so often, some grenades will jump out of it (they 
don't do any damage, this is just so you can tell what kind of MG it is). 
When an enemy comes within its large range the MG will launch a fast-flying 
Mirv grenade. When the grenade hits something/someone, it will drop two 
bomblets that will also explode (as opposed to the five bomblets a normal 
Mirv grenade drops). This MG has a high rate of fire, and along with its good
range, it's hard to get around this gun, but the grenades and bomblets don't 
do as much damage as you would expect.

		(MEDIC upgrade) Bio Cannon: When a medic touches an inert MG,
it turns into a Bio Cannon. This gun looks like a tripod, but with a floating
skull above it. When an enemy comes within its medium range, the gun lights 
up with a green glow and launches flying blue skulls at the enemy (this gun 
is a bit more inaccurate than the others). Along with doing some damage, the 
enemy becomes infected. However, the infection is different from the one you 
get from an enemy medic's medpack. You'll still receive the damage of eight 
health units per 2 seconds or so, but your screen will also shake, making it 
harder to aim. Along with that, you'll see a small biohazard-type icon in the 
bottom left corner of your screen, as well as a floating, rotating biohazard 
animation on your person (this is to make it clear to teammates that you're 
infected I suppose, so they won't touch you and get infected as well). 
Medics, however, will not get infected from the Bio Cannon. They'll just 
receive the damage from the skulls. Any other classes can actually have both 
types of infections at once (medpack and Bio Cannon), so if this happens, 
they'll die twice as fast. When the MG fires, you'll know, because the skulls 
make a screaming sound.

		(HWGUY upgrade) Crowbar Shooter: When an hwguy touches an 
inert MG, it turns into a Crowbar Shooter. This gun looks like a tripod, but 
every so often, some crowbars will jump out of it (they don't do any damage, 
this is just so you can tell what kind of MG it is). When an enemy comes 
within its medium range, the gun releases fast-flying crowbars that do a lot
of damage. This gun's rate of fire is a bit slower than that of the Bio 
Cannon, but it's also more accurate. 

		(PYRO upgrade) Flamegun: When a pyro touches an inert MG, it 
turns into a Flamegun. This gun looks like a tripod, but every so often, a 
small flame will flash over it. When an enemy comes within its medium range, 
it lights up with a red glow and shoots out fast flying projectiles that do 
flame damage (pyros will receive less damage from this gun than other 
classes). The gun's accuracy is the same as that of the Bio Cannon, and the 
damage done is somewhat less than that of the Crowbar shooter, but this MG 
has the highest rate of fire out of all of them. It never pauses between 
firing either, like the Displacer, Laser-Rocket Launcher, Rocket Launcher, 
Mirv Grenade Launcher, or Tesla Coil do. This makes this MG VERY hard to 
avoid. Your best hope if you're a lightly armored class, is to stay out of 
its range. Engineers should try to have these built in a confined area or 
close to the entrance(s) of the base, but still in a hard-to-reach place.

                (SPY upgrade) Tesla Coil: When a spy touches an inert MG, it 
turns into a Tesla Coil. This gun looks...like a Tesla Coil (a metal pole
with metal rings around it). When an enemy comes within its medium range, the
Coil charges up (making a sound and glowing blue) then discharges an
extremely powerful electric bolt at the target. This WILL kill the target, no
matter what class. However, the charging takes about one second, so if you 
hear a Tesla Coil charging up, run in the other direction. Once you're out of
its range, it's easy to destroy like any MG.

        BouncePad: Executing the buildspecial2 command will cost you 50 armor
units and will build a BouncePad. This looks like a transparent Dispenser. 
Now, any of your teammates and you, excluding hwguys, soldiers, and pyros can 
use it. To use the BouncePad, run up to it, and as you're standing "in" it,
jump. This will give you a huge boost up and straight ahead. For examlple, if
you were to place a BouncePad on the little bridge in front of your base on 
the map, Well, using the BouncePad correctly and holding down the forward key
while in the air will result in you flying all the way to the enemy team's 
bridge. Also, when standing "in" the BouncePad and pressing the USE key 
(default is E) will result in you getting a straight vertical boost (but not 
as high a boost as the pyro Jetpack for instance). Also, if you're falling 
from a high place and you come close to the BouncePad, it will slow your 
descent (you'll notice a white beam eminating from the BouncePad that is 
attached to you). Both the forward and jump, and the USE boosts of the 
BouncePad cost 10 armor units each time. The BouncePad has a two minute 
lifespan and can also be destroyed by enemy fire. Enemies cannot use the 
BouncePad, but if you see an enemy within its vicinity, executing the
detspecial2 command will detonate the BouncePad. You can only have one 
BouncePad at a time. You can dismantle your BouncePad by stepping "in" it and
executing the buildspecial2 command again (this will result in you getting 50
armor units back). The BouncePad is VERY useful for helping you build SGs and
MGs in high and hard-to-reach places (something that was not easy for engies 
before), as well as for quick transportation on a map. Building a Dispenser 
and a BouncePad next to it is a good idea, because you'll know when an enemy 
is using your dispenser, and you can then detonate both (using the 
detdispenser and detspecial2 commands) to do some damage to the enemy long
before they may come to your SG and/or MG.

        Medic Dispenser Upgrade: When a medic touches a normal Dispenser in 
NeoTF, a rotating red cross will appear over the Dispenser. Now the Dispenser
will heal teammates at a rate of 10 health units per second when they come 
close to it, along with giving out ammo and armor units as it usually would.
Also, if snipers go up to it and hit the USE key, (default is E) they will 
receive Flash Grenades (see the SNIPER section for more info on Flash 
Grenades).

	Soldier SAM Launcher Upgrade: When a soldier builds a SAM Launcher, 
an engineer must touch it to upgrade it so the SAM Launcher will function. 
See the SOLDIER section for more information on the SAM Launcher.

        NeoTF Menu: When you execute the togglemenu command as an engineer, 
the menu looks exactly like this:

                1. Build MultiGun
                2. Build MG/Check health
                3. Build/Dismantle BouncePad
                4. Detonate MultiGun(s)
                5. Detonate BouncePad
                6. Call for Upgrade

                        Note: The upgrade you call for is that of the
MultiGun (whether you have one built or not). For info pertaining to the 
"Call for Upgrade" option, see section 3: Universal commands.

5. Other resources/bibliography

Here is a listing of where you can find more information on NeoTF:

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

http://www.planetneotf.com - The Official NeoTF Website is where you can 
download the latest version of NeoTF. There are some forums here where you 
can find some more help on any NeoTF issues.

http://help.neo-tf.com - The Official NeoTF help site. This website has a lot
of information, but isn't very detailed or specific and gives a lot of 
unnecessary console commands. It doesn't give strategies or tips either.

ntf_help - Join a game running NeoTF (or create your own game) and type in 
ntf_help in the console. This is meant for in-game help and is like 
help.neo-tf.com, but is less detailed, and of course is only available when 
you're in a NeoTF game.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I got some of my information from ntf_help and help.neo-tf.com. Everything 
else I got from playing the game.

6. About the author and contact information

I'm in a TFC and (newly) NeoTF clan called [whoopis]. Our clan website is at 
www.whoopis.com/tfc/. The whoopis.com forums/message boards are at
www.whoopis.com/phpBB2/ (the "BB" must be capitalized). My personal website 
is at www.whoopis.com/~amdusias (just go to http://www.whoopis.com for a full 
listing of everything on the domain).

The [whoopis] clan has two dedicated servers running from the North-East of
the USA. One is normal TF and the other is NeoTF. Here are the IP addresses
and names of the servers (the first is the TF server, and the second is the 
NeoTF server):

        [whoopis] Dedicated 4: 66.59.109.137:27015

        [whoopis] NEOTF NOOBS: 129.170.131.15:27015

If you need to ask me a question you may email me at amdusias@whoopis.com, 
but PLEASE make sure your question isn't already answered in the guide. If 
your question is a good one, I'll post it on the guide (giving you credit for
it) and answer you on the guide and via email. 

You may also post your question in the "TFC and NeoTF" forum on the 
whoopis.com message boards, and I'll do the same thing to the guide and 
answer you via the message board.
