SINGLE PLAYER AND MULTIPLAYER DIFFERENCES
In singleplayer when mission is completed player see statistics screen
and score bonuses will be calculated:
- 10000 bonus score for SERIOUS difficulty. Less for easier
- 1000 bonus score for each LIVE left.
- 10x bonus score for each enemy kill (for example with 400 kills
you get 4000 bonus score)
- 1000 bonus score for all secrets found. Less for some found only.
0 for none found.
- 10x bonus score for each second left under EST. TIME.
In multiplayer when mission is completed player only sees end video and
after that main menu. To have multiplayer statistics you have to know
when mission is about to end and press TAB + Enter to open Netrisca and
F11 to screenshot it.
EXPLAINING MULTIPLAYER SESSION SETTINGS
- DIFFICULTY SERIOUS will give you 10000 bonus score when mission
is completed. Easier Tourist, Easy, Normal and Hard difficulties will
- NUMBER OF LIVES 1 is the smallest you can start with and it means
you have 1 extra life in the start and you can die twice before game
over. Score is for whole team and every living and dead player will
recieve extra life in every 10000 points. So if it is GAME OVER for
you, do not disconnect and reconnect to continue, just wait until
active players will reach next 10000 in team score.
- EXTRA ENEMY STRENGTH and EXTRA STRENGHT BY PLAYER were NONE to
keep singleplayer and multiplayer scores and experiences more
comparable and because FRIENDLY FIRE YES makes playing with others
- WEAPONS STAYS & HEALTH/ARMOR STAYS were set to YES so every
player can pick up each item once. After picking an item it disappears
- CLIENTS MAY PAUSE was set to NO to prevent possibility to join,
pause and disconnect leaving game still paused. It otherwords NO
because of possibility to misuse it.

SINGLEPLAYER GAME SAVES
1. Download arcive of singleplayer game saves form this link
2. Extract and place its files in C:\Program Files\Serious Sam 2
3. Load game
1. Download archive of recorded games from this link
2. Extract and place its files in C:\Program Files\Serious Sam 2
3. Playback and watch it from main menu
4. It contains following files
Singleplayer demo recordings are work ok with all features.
Multiplayer demo recordings will
work only some seconds in start and then give this error message: "You
were disconnected by the game host. Reason: Connection timeout." Also
before all collectable items and enemies are invisible. For now on I
have not been able to found out why multiplayer demo recordings are not
working as singleplayer demo recordings do. At least all data is there
because files are big which means the recording has continued all the
way to the completion of the mission. Maybe it requires some editing in
Sam2.ini file. Looks
like it is a common problem even with V2.0.70 full retail game, but
anyway let me know if you find a solutions to make multiplayer demo
records to work properly.
SECRET & STATISTICAL SCREENSHOTS
Screenshots were taken with ingame screenshot function (F11 key). They
were originally .tga format but copies for this page were
coverted to .jpg quality 8.
Secret 1 - Secret Treasure appears on
extreme left of the
castle side of the river after killing all enemies spawning in that
Secret 2 - Secret Ammo Pack is on the village side of the river right
side of the draw bridge
tower at the point where the hill takes a sudden drop. Get it fast and
continue running as close to the river as possible.
Secret 3 - Secret Area is on the extreme right side of the village side
of the river
next to the single tower. To get there run as close to the river as
possible and do not stop even when some spiders are hitting you. As you
approach the cabin that is blocking the riverside strafe left and move
on. Most of the spiders following you get rushed into eachother near
cabin. Enter the hovercraft first and then get the treasure chest,
because most likely you are followed by a bunch of enemies.
Secret 4 - Secret Health is on the right side of the village side of
the river next to
the first cabin on right.

Secret 1 - Secret Neanderthal Football Fans is on extreme right of the
starting position. When opening the carage doors neanderthals will
attack from the alley. Don't
go inside yet, but just move backwads and shoot. After all enemies are
killed. Pick up ball with F and move it inside the goal to get the
health heart or kick (push) the ball inside the goal if that works
Secret 2 - Secret Items is under the starting positon left edge.
in the first jump pad to face the hall you just came from and jump and
push in the edge above the hall. Collect the money bags to trigger the
secret. After collecting all the money bags, turn left in the corner
carefully and kill orcs to get more points. Also shoot before jumping
down shoot 2 aircrafts flying around next building.
Secret 3 - Mutated Plant Secret is the tree with fruits on the
left side of the hovercrafts.
Shotgun all pepper shaped fruits until they turn into health pills.
Collect all health pills. In the end you can
destroy the tree with a rocket to see no fruits were left on the floor.
