1.10.14 fixes some minor bugs. It's recommended to upgrade especially if you have multiple bosses reliant on rage_cloneattack.
Please note that 1.10 will be the last major version of FF2 v1; however, 1.10.x will still be supported for a while after 2.0.0 comes out. In addition, no more feature additions will be considered for FF2 v1. 1.10.x is solely bugfixes from now on.
Note: The 'plugins' archive now also contains the source code.
Found any bugs? Try to report them over at Github. It makes tracking bugs a lot easier, and will ensure that it doesn't get lost in this forum. Thanks .
Unzip the main FF2 archive, and match up the file structures with the TF2 directory structure (eg addons-->addons, models-->models, etc). When you're finished, you should have a file called freak_fortress_2.phrases.txt in /addons/sourcemod/translations/
Unzip the FF2 plugins archive and place them in the /addons/sourcemod/plugins/ folder (so that plugins/freaks/ff2_1st_set_abilities.ff2 exists).
FF2's config file is located at /cfg/sourcemod/FreakFortress2.cfg, adjust at your leisure.
Upgrading from 1.0.13, 1.0.12, 1.10.11, or 1.10.10
Make sure you have at least Sourcemod 1.6.3 and TF2Items 1.6.4 installed.
Download freak_fortress_2.smx and place it in the plugins folder.
Download ff2_1st_set_abilities.smx, rename it to ff2_1st_set_abilities.ff2, and place it in the plugins/freaks folder.
[Optional] Delete gamedata/equipwearable.txt unless you have other plugins using it.
[Optional] Delete gamedata/saxtonhale.txt unless you have other plugins using it.
[Optional] Save a backup of your FreakFortress2.cfg and delete it. FF2 will generate a fresh one with the new cvars, and you can then re-edit the config.
Generally, a value of '1' means that the convar is enabled, and '0' means that it is disabled. ff2_version: DO NOT TOUCH THIS EVER ff2_enabled (1): Enable FF2? ff2_point_type (0): Toggles the way in which the control point gets activated. ff2_point_alive (5): Maximum number of players left alive before the CP gets activated. Only has an effect if ff2_point_type is '0'. ff2_point_delay (6): Seconds per player to delay the time before the CP gets activated. Only has an effect if ff2_point_type is '1'. ff2_announce (120): How many seconds to wait for between each FF2 info message in chat. Must be above 1 to display. ff2_crits (1): Can the boss get crits? Personally, I suggest that this be turned off. ff2_first_round (-1): Makes the first round arena mode while waiting for people to join.-THIS CVAR HAS BEEN DEPRECATED IN FAVOR OF FF2_ARENA_ROUNDS ff2_arena_rounds (1): Amount of arena rounds before switching the gamemode to FF2. ff2_circuit_stun (2): Number of seconds the Short Circuit stuns the boss for. Very OP. ff2_countdown_players (1): Maximum number of players left alive before the countdown timer gets activated. 0 to disable. ff2_countdown_time (120): Number of seconds after the countdown timer starts to end the round in a stalemate. ff2_countdown_health (2000): Minimum amount of health the boss can have left in order for the countdown timer to show. ff2_countdown_result (0): 0-Kill players when the countdown ends, 1-End the round in a stalemate. ff2_spec_force_boss (0): Adds queue points to spectators. ff2_enable_eureka (0): Enables the Eureka Effect. ff2_force_team (0): '0'-Boss team is always on Blue; '1'-Boss is on a random team every round; '2'-Boss is always on Red. ff2_health_bar (1): Shows a healthbar illustrating the boss's current health. ff2_last_player_glow (1): Outlines the boss team and the last remaining player when there is only one player left alive. ff2_boss_teleporter (1): '-1' to disallow any bosses from using teleporters; '0' to use TF2 logic; or '1' to allow all bosses. This should actually be set to 0 to preserve existing functionality. ff2_boss_suicide (0): Allows the boss to suicide after the round starts if set to '1'. ff2_shield_crits (0): '0'-Demoman receives no crit buff from equipping a shield; '1'-minicrits; '2'-crits. ff2_caber_detonations (5): The number of times somebody can detonate the Ullapool Caber. ff2_base_jumper_stun (0): Whether or not the Base Jumper should be disabled on stun. ff2_goomba_damage (0.05): How much the Goomba Stomp damage should be multiplied by when stomping the boss. Requires Goomba Stomp. ff2_goomba_jump (300.0): How high players should rebound after stomping the boss. Requires Goomba Stomp. ff2_boss_rtd (0): Allows the boss to use RTD. ff2_oldjump (0): If '1', uses VSH super-jump mechanics. ff2_updater (1): Allows FF2 to auto-update to the newest version. ff2_debug (0): Spews out debug of all sorts in chat and console.

Have questions? Read these first
Q: What's the difference between FF2 and VSH?
A: FF2 is customizable.
Q: How do I add bosses?
A: Drag-n-drop the files that the author gives you. Don't forget to edit /addons/sourcemod/configs/freak_fortress_2/characters.cfg with the new boss name.
Q: YOUR PLUGIN IS BROKEN FIX IT NOW
A: Error logs/explanation or it didn't happen :>.
Q: What is this 'FF2 2.0.0'?
A: A major rewrite for FF2 that will (hopefully) bring many optimizations and improvements, such as customizable weapons.
Q: Can I help with anything?
A: Sure! Check out the source code on Github.
Q: I keep seeing servers that are running FF2 on KOTH maps, how do I do that?
Q: All the bosses are ERRORS!
A: You may either be: using sv_pure 2, or 1 with an incorrect whitelist (make sure to whitelist the FF2 files); using sv_downloadurl (a fast download server) but haven't placed the bz2 files onto your fast download server; substituting the actual models and sounds (on the server) for their bz2 replacements (which will fail horrendously); or a client who has set their downloads to none, therefore not downloading the custom files from the server. (Taken from VSH's FAQ )
Q: None of my bosses after #63 appear D:
A: Open up freak_fortress_2.sp, find '#define MAX_SPECIALS', and change that number to something higher, then compile it.
Q: The new update broke FF2!
A: Update EVERYTHING and try again. Still not working? Try getting the latest developmental version from Github.
Q: My server still says the game is "Team Fortress" instead of "Freak Fortress 2"
A: Install SteamTools (link is in "Installing from Scratch").
Q: Where can I find some information regarding FF2?
A: Try the wiki.
Q: Why should I install the recommended plugins?
TF2Attributes adds back the old Mantreads behavior that was present in FF2 (super-high rocket jumping) before a TF2 update broke it
SteamTools changes the game mode in the server browser to Freak Fortress 2 and also allows Updater to function
Updater automagically updates FF2 to the latest version

So I forgot to mention some things (I was tired last night, ok? ).
1) FF2 NOW DEPENDS ON morecolors.inc! Get it here: http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=185016. You can remove colors.inc if none of your other plugins depend on it.
2) You can now specify the clip amount while giving a weapon to a boss (on rage/life-loss/etc.). No more reloading
3) You no longer have to precache sound_bgm, FF2 will now do it automatically.
4) Translations now are a whole lot less disjointed.
5) freak_fortress_2.inc's info was greatly improved.
6) Ninja Spy/etc. don't get stuck in walls or ceilings anymore!
7) Bosses don't get stuck in ceilings when teleporting anymore!
8) Seeldier's minions can NO LONGER CAP. This was a balance change due to the fact that if you spawned your minions near the point, they would win in a matter of seconds. Also, a x3/x6 cap rate is fast enough, no need for added minions trying to cap.
9) Medigun now overheals 50% more.
10) FF2RoundState was discarded for GameRules_GetRoundState() (which is called through FF2's CheckRoundState()). Should be a whole lot more accurate and should also fix some round-related bugs (hopefully the end-of-round bgm playing).
11) Whitelisted some weapons/action slot items.
12) Added more checks so that spies couldn't exploit the 2s wait timer after backstabbing.
13) If an attribute formatting error is detected in your config, FF2 will default to default attributes to avoid being spammed with errors. Fix dem configs!
As for the damage done not appearing, do you mean the green block of text on the lower part of your screen? Does it NEVER appear, or does it not appear only when you're alive/dead?
