Help, The Game Doesn't Start Or Crashes
The pack has been tested on all kinds of computers, from and old Pentium 4 running Windows XP to and modern i7 with Windows 10. There can only be a few things holding you back. Make sure you have your video card drivers, sound drivers and DirectX9 installed. When your are using windows 10 doing a Windows Update and running any modern pc game (like from steam) and it should be done.
Then go to the file properties of TacticalOps.exe and set it to "Run As Administrator". If this does not help disable "Data Execution Prevention" also known as "DEP", to do this search on google "How to disable DEP Windows".
When playing online multiplayer and the server changes maps, there is always a chance your game might crash. This is caused by addons such as NexGen and ACE that are used by the server. The only fix for this is to (re)start the game and rejoin the server.
Another strange thing is when you have just installed TO for the first time, the Windows Anti Malware will scan it in the background while you play and might result in a INI-Parser Kick. This will go away after a few days after you played a couple of times.
Mouse Cursor doesnt move after starting Tactical Ops
If your mouse cursor is stuck in the top left of the screen simply ALT-TAB out and back into the game.
Intel HD Graphics and TO
On some computers with Intel HD Graphics you might get a black screen when trying to start TO. This might depend on the model number and graphics driver used. It could help searching for a updated driver on Intel's website or your motherboard manufacturer. A work around is pressing F12 on startup to minimize TO, then you can make it full screen again and play the game. This has to be done every time on startup or set StartupFullscreen to False in "TacticalOps.ini"
File Mismatch Error when joining a Multiplayer Server
File Mismatch errors should only happen when you install Custom Files manually into the game folder. When files are downloaded from a game server into the Cache folder this will not happen. So do not install custom files on a install that you also want to play online with. In the case you encounter a File Missmatch error when joining a server you can try to clean or delete the Cache folder, but most likely you will have to reinstall the game if you have not made a backup folder.
Using ESE Anti Cheat for Tactical Ops v3.5
Install the ESESetup.exe for the ESE Account Manager. Make sure you have registered and obtained a ESE Keyfile and place it into your TO v3.5 System folder. Configure your TO v3.5 TacticalOps.exe installation folder in ESE. Then install the ESE Client Files and the ESE Renderers and configure them from inside the ESE Account Manager. After all these steps you should be able to join ESE Servers.
Installing Custom Files
When using custom files its always advised to make a separate installation for offline use only.
.u, .ini and .int files -> TO-Version/System
.unr files -> TO-Version/Maps
.utx files -> TO-Version/Textures
.uax files -> TO-Version/Sounds
.umx files-> TO-Version/Music
