The MANUAL also can be viewed on our website.
Notice that there will be some moves that will not be explained in the manual, i’m referring to kung-fu and katana specifically, you will have to experiment or wait for others who will discover them…FORUMS 😉

Notice that we’ve released the win version, the linux one will come soon.
Another thing: our official NGI servers will be updated soon, until then they will keep running 1.5 version of the game

Important, How voting system works: To vote something you have to say (like to talk with other players) “vote”, then you can vote for maps, ff , slowmatch or teamdm.
So write “map”, “ff”, “team” or “slow”. Now you have to write the map or if you want activate or deactivate ff,teamdm or slowmatch write “on” or “off”.
Here some examples:

“vote map ts_heresy” to vote for map ts_heresy.
“vote slow on” to vote for activate slowmatch.
“vote ff off” to vote for deactivate friendly fire.
“vote team on” to enable teamDM in DM maps.

Also there are 2 more vote tags, “reset” and “stats”; “reset” will reset all your votes, “stats” tell you how the votes are going.

“vote reset” to reset your votes.
“vote stats” to view vote stats.

Also is possible , if you want to write without spaces , like “votemap ts_heresy” or “votemapts_heresy”.
