Thanks for the welcome Gents!!!
And thanks for the help guys, I do really appreciate it. So what I understand so far is that there are or at least should be instructions attached to the downloads on where they are installed, right? And as far as the other mods, like the clean HUD displays and weapons mods, the blood mods etc... I should be able to join servers with no problem as long as I have the same maps previously downloaded, am I on the right track???
I guess I should specifically ask if the mods I choose to download "have to" match the mods being used in the server??? Or do only the maps have to match??? I just don't want to miss out on some great game play because I'm not so computer savvy and miss some of the finer points.
Could anyone recommend the more popular maps or map packs that are mostly used online??? Or should I just download as many maps as I can??? I hope I'm not being a bother but this is all so new to me and I am sort of the go to guy for the new stuff in our squad. Once I get a grip on the protocols for the game then I report back get everyone else set up, usually, so I hope you can understand that I'm just starting out, the learning curve is always a ###### when you can't wait to jump in there and get playing.....
This forum is one of the best I've seen for info and help with just about everything to do with the game, unlike some of those out there. Glad you guys are doing what you do because if not for guys like you, guys like me would be in the dark and miss out on a such a great game!!!!
Oh yeah, BTW, my posts become less lengthy as the learning curve straightens out....LOL!!!
Thanks again for all your help!!!
