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 area.


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 faster.


Secret 2  - Secret Items is under the starting positon left edge. Turn around 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.
