Entities and interesting stuff
Beta version is basically a test stage to check the stability of the game. It’s not the final product which mean anything can be changed. SOF has his proof (ex: claymore)
>Back in the time, where the project started !
Some of the item exist in the game memory but removed in game. Here’s the list that the texture and script doesn’t exist anymore.
Note: The list is bigger. It’s either not clear to know or totally a left over.

3rd one (left to right), he got removed near demo release.
- It has the same aspect of grenade, instead it will make an electrical charge and if you can’t resist (to low hp), your brain will not blow up but melt. it is known as Neural Pulse Emitter.

- According to Raven Software on a personal note in a source code, the author mention : “12/28/99 who knows? we don’t have a model yet.”
- This item was found in IRQ’s
- Hidden far on the archive, The game was at the beginning, intentionally used to have molotov grenade. But yet, it is unknown if they made far on creation.
- Entity himself exist already, but has multiple skin textures, and some got removed. In total of 4, we have the police and the black Cadillac. But it also have the Taxi and Miami police.
Thanks to : [RDAM]JAN for this discovery.

Download this African tree (sorry no instruction)

- Raider dog is the origin of dog we know in GER.
- This skin is present in the game files but the ability to chose either this one or the original is not possible.
- The flame has a different effect when activated.
Silver Talon .44 (or Desert eagle)
- This weapon does have an alternate function. like mpg, machine gun or rocket launcher, the .44 has the ability to whip the player and decrease an amount of hp.
- Ammo capacity was set to 100.
Black Panther (glock) & Machine pistol
Both weapon had ammo capacity of 300 (like 5.56 ammo).
- Capacity in clip was 50 (instead of 40 we have).
- Our height was shorter than any enemy. This got fixed in version 0.57 (demo).
Sophisticated sniper zoom
- When zooming, there was a meter showing the bullet range distance and the wind speed.

Player killing streak
- It was never intended to be in final release (as the file name called Test.sp). It was supposed to show a message saying how many times someone killed someone (not everyone in general). [INDEX 0]
–“The player %s was killed by %s %d times!”
Multiplayer skin : Deadeye & Ponytail
- Hhmm, those are quite strange but possible that they are independent enemies in game or allies. They don’t belong into a terrorist gang. By reading their information Ponytail might got used in Nyc map as he’s “born and raised in back alley”, but raised with naughty people. Deadeye’s name is pretty familiar to say he’s born in USA too (Bruce Kennedy).
- Face used on SUDs map.
- Possible to see in DEMO version.
My arse !!
- No F…..g idea why it’s there. More like entertainment. It is stored in “pics” folder.
Single player item shop
- From what i believe, the money earned was used to buy weapon.
- A general (client and server) cvar name existed : “coop”. Was it for coop mission? or an active cvar from Quake 2, but removed for Sof1.
These are picture from a real far back in beta which I’m gonna say It’s Alpha version (before beta). Even less information. Files are taken from atomicgamers.com.
- Seem to be Tsr1 with some ecto character monsters. different knife texture, and a body damage.
- Same ecto guy.
- Totally different Iraq map.
- Iraq map with ecto officer.
- Iraq map with different desert eagle shape.
- Different view of Iraq map.
- Iraq view.
- Iraq view.
- Another view of Iraq with ecto getting killed.
- No comment… The oldness of the engine is getting more similar of the first id Tech 2 engine pattern.
KOS = IRQs?
I made this decision after viewing screens shots of Kos3. I personally believe its an old Irq map. It’s kinda strange that there hostages with Irq face, sniper guy, police guy (desert eagle) from Irq and .. yes door from Irq. B version has different building too. I don’t wanna jump in this conclusion yet but if you see this picture, it become red (light) like in the trailer in kos3. By checking the Sof intro video. Your spawn point never existed in tunel and the tunel also never existed. The video show a part of a random place using the same beta KOS sky (blue with cyan windows tower). And for last which resolve a new mystery that some might saw it. Its about the 2 boxes in a truck. No one know yet why its there until myself. In the video intro again. Trucks were different and they were using a flat deck which mean those 2 boxes were visible.
