Description:


Sogun Studio presents a multiplayer map based on a jungle map that was once a demo. The strong points of this map is the density of palms and drawing distance, trying to keep framerate to a playable level. It's not a big map but it's easy to get lost and be surprised by your enemies. Available for 3 and 4 players too, with less palms to keep the map playable.

An optimized Rainforest has been included, which features the same number of trees that would only be loaded during a 4-Player match in the original. You should find that this map runs more smoothly, since the amount of trees has been cut down significantly.

Also thrown into this patch is an alternate version of the same map, this time without any trees. Country Hills results in something very unique in GoldenEye multiplayer. You'll also find the framerate to be quite stable, as there is far less being drawn on screen at one time than in either incarnation of Rainforest.

0. FILES CONTAINED IN THE PACKAGE
------—-
GE_forestandhills.xdelta -> this is the patch that needs to be injected in the rom. You must patch the rom using the GoldenEye Setup Editor. You can download it from:
http://www.goldeneyevault.com

1. PATCHING THE ROM
---——
-You will need the 'GE_forestandhills.xdelta' patch and a unflipped 12MB rom of 'Goldeneye 007'. A *.z64 rom should work.
-Open the GoldenEye Setup Editor.
-Go to 'Tools' and then to 'Xdelta Patching'
-Select 'Apply GE xdelta Patch'
-Select the original 'Goldeneye 007' rom
-Select 'GE_forestandhills.xdelta'
-Save the new file 'GoldenEye.rom'. You can rename the file after creating it, but you must keep the .rom extension.

2. RUNNING THE ROM IN PROJECT 64
------
If you are using Project 64 you need to change some settings in order to make the rom work smoothly.

-Load the rom and then, in the emulator menu, go to 'Options' and 'Settings'.
-Select 'Rom settings'. Change to the following for GoldenEye:
CPU Core Style: Recompiler
Self Modifying-Core Type: Change Memory and Cache
Counter Factor: 2
Check marks by: Large Compile Buffer, Register Caching, SP Hack, Use TLB.

For Perfect Dark you want:
CPU Core Style: Recompiler
Self Modifying-Core Type: Protect Memory
Default Save type: 16Kbit EEPROM
Counter Factor: 2
Check marks by: Large Compile Buffer, Register Caching, Use TLB.
