To install SOFPLUS
1. Download the zip file provided at http://sof1.megalag.org/sofplus
/ make sure that you downloaded (at the time of writing) "sofplus-client-patch-20140531-gog.zip"
2. Extract the contents of the zip file to your SOF install folder.
3. Run "sofplus-client-patch.cmd" it will generate a zip file in the install folder
4. open this new zip file
5. extract everything to your sof folder and allow it over write everything.
It should be installed.
Ist there any reason that the contents of the (first) ZIP file must be extracted to the SOF directory? I mean, if all it's doing is creating a new ZIP file... can't you just create that new zip file elsewhere and then extract the new file into the SOF directory?
This seems... oddly convoluted.
I can only imagine that this is the way it is because it's "borrowing" elements from the original SOF install to create the new ZIP. Which might make sense, from the standpoint of "Activision lawyers requiring proof the original game exists."
Yeah, Activision, EA, and Ubisoft... intentionally making life harder for their paying customers (while not standing in the way of the actual bad guys in any fashion) for more than twenty years!
