    HOW TO
    How to create a PATCHED room:
    1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "!" without the quotation marks.
    (Example Password: !123456789)
    2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
    How to create a PATCHED room with a password:
    1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "#" without the quotation marks.
    (Example Password: #123456789)
    2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
    How to create a legacy PATCHED room:
    1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "$" without the quotation marks.
    (Example Password: $123456789)
    2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
    How to create a SGL PATCHED room with a password:
    1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "%" without the quotation marks.
    (Example Password: %123456789)
    2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
    How to create a HALO room:
    1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "@" without the quotation marks.
    (Example Password: @123456789)
    2. Create the rest of the game as normal and make the game respawn.
    How to join a patched room:
    1. Join it as you would a regular game without a password.
    Patched rooms allow players with the patch to bypass the password entry. Regular users will be prompted with a password. If you are prompted with a password box then the room was not created properly for patch players or it was created by regular players.
    How to join a patched room with a password:
    1. Enter the password including the # symbol.
    (Example Password: #123456)
    How to check your patch version:
    1. Hold [SELECT] at the LAN lobby(room listing menu) and the patch version will be displayed.
    Note: Patch version will also display on the main menu at the bottom of the screen.
    How to use a clan tag:
    1. The tag is inserted when creating your name at the login screen for LAN.
    2. Create your name like this: [TAG]name
    Example: [CC]Harry62 The game will separate the clan tag and name when joining a room.
    How to access the patch menu:
    1. Press "L1 + X"(precision users) or "L1 + DPAD Down"(sureshot users) to open the menu.
    2. Press "CIRCLE", "TRIANGLE", or click the Close button to close the menu.
    How to create a game using single player maps:
    1. Set game as RESPAWN.
    2. Set a password to lock out players without the patch as they may freeze when joining.
    3. Select SP maps from map list(they are at the top above day/night maps)
    4. Create game.
    5. Select any character in the armory and choose any weapons. By default terrorists will not display weapons and may spawn in game with only an UZI unless you select weapons beforehand. Make sure your equipment slots do NOT read as NONE or you may freeze.

    * Loading a SP map will disable all MP maps. Logging off or restarting is required to play MP maps AFTER playing a SP map. If you try to play a MP map after playing a SP map SOCOM will auto-restart. This also applies if you mix in MP with SP maps.
    * Terrorist character models do not show up.
    * Initial spawn will have players spawning on top of each other.
    * You can traverse the entire SP map.
    * Respawn points are placed near what I consider the core of the map. You may respawn on top of someone as regular respawn logic does not apply.
    * Do NOT shoot exploding barrels. It will despawn the map for everyone in game.
    * The in-game armory is not perfect and will freeze on occasion.

    Rank icons are based on KDR:
    < 0.2:1 = Ensign
    >= 0.2:1 = Lieutenant
    >= 0.5:1 = Lieutenant Commander
    >= 1.2:1 = Captain
    >= 3:1 = Admiral

    NOTE: KDR is based on rank if using 1UPs' S2 GameStats app. Link at the top of the page.
    Q: How do I load the patch?
    A: By using an ELF loader such as uLaunchELF(check youtube/google). When starting uLaunchELF close the disc tray and browse to the patch. Launch the patch by pressing CIRCLE. You may see a blank screen for a few seconds before you see the SOCOM logo.

    Q: Do patched players have an advantage?
    A: No. Patch players will default to non-patch rules when playing a regular game. The only patch features they will have in regular games are listed above in the "FEATURES" section.

    Q: Can regular players use the patch features in a patched game?
    A: No. In order to have patch features you must have the patch and join/create a patched game.

    Q: Does cheat detection work in regular games?
    A: Yes, but only for patch users.

    Q: What is Level 1 & 2 cheat detection?
    A: Level 1 is a legacy cheat detection included in all patch revisions. Level 2 is stronger variation of Level 1 that only runs in REGULAR PATCH games.

    Q: Can I use an older version of the patch with the newest version?
    A: Yes, but only in regular games. You can NOT join a patch game created by someone using a newer version of the patch.

    Q: How do I create a patched game?
    A: Create a game with a password. The password MUST start with the ! symbol followed by any characters you want. Example password: "!12345". Players using the patch will join the game automatically while regular users will be prompted with a password.

    Q: Can I still join regular games?
    A: Yes and regular players can still join your game if you create a non-password game or a password game where the password does NOT begin with the "!" symbol.

    Q: What is the net tick rate?
    A: It is the # of times per second players update their player data(position, look direction, animation, etc). The default net tick is 5 so players update their position 5 times per second. In patch games players update more often. This results in more accurate movement and better hit detection.

    Q: Why does my framerate drop to 30 or lower when using 60FPS?
    A: SOCOM 2 will lower the framerate depending on how much processing power is needed. For example, 16 players throwing grenades will drastically lower the framerate.

    Q: Does the framerate effect the tick rate?
    A: No. Framerate is the # of times per second the game refreshes for the individual player. The tick rate is the # of times per second the individual player updates their data(position, look direction, etc) to other players.

    Q: Can I use the DLC/HDD maps with the patch?
    A: Yes and no. Last Bastion and Liberation will work using a modified ISO containing the raw map files. AfterHours will not work. Read the "PCSX2 Pnatch Codes" notes above in order to enable the maps. This is for PCSX2 only.

    Q: 2Pac or Biggie?
    A: 2Pac
    Known issue and solution
    Custom maps showing up as regular maps for everyone excluding host. 
    ex: aban_day, crossroads, cross_night, frostfire, frost_day, etc.

    Solution: Create patch games with either custom maps or regular maps, not both.
