ESF consists of three different game modes, team play, free for all and capture the drgonballs (CTBD). CTBD contains having to collect the 7 dragonballs to make a wish for the person that manages to get the balls together or steal that wish from the gather (in other words being quick to make the wish befoer any other player can). This mode is simlar to most games that have a capture the flag style of play.

There's a manaual to read that you can find in your start menu, or you can read the flash manual at esf-world.

Hope that helps you out ;), also weclome to the forums.

Basicly the game is hard on people who dont read the manual so first thing is read it ^^

Anyhow the gameplay is quite fast and you have teammode or deathmatch. The newest version is 1.2.3 with 1.3 comming.

Note that you nead Halflife1 and STEAM to play this game online. If you have any questions about anything dont be afraid to ask. Also there are some modifications for ESF out there. But they arnt suported on this forum. For information on them you can look here --> http://forum.esforces.com/showthread.php?t=37175


And wellcome to the forum :p

Make sure you read the manual. Read Chakra-X's tutorial. Anything you can to learn how to play, before actually playing. Most people new to ESF don't read anything, so they think "pros" are "hacking" because of it.

Also don't give up the first time if you suck. Everyone sucks at first. You just need to learn to play, and get the hang of it.

It's a fun and addicting game. I hope you enjoy. Also, I hope you have Half-Life 1 :)

esf is really not easy.......

but it's funny! i like playing it.. even if i don't know all about it, cause there are a lot of informations in the flashmanual..... but i think i will get it once and won't die allt the time :laff:

but i have a question while a battle between two fighters (melee) if i get punshed more than one time in a row.. is it normal, that i see black at the border of my monitor and i can't see the game for a time (sry for bad english i'm from germany, but the wohle forum is in english so i write in in english, too).. back to my problem... is that normal, or is it because of my bad settings, because of my bad pc??

and another question to melee.. if i block with the direction thing.. if there are allt direction in one symbol, what do i have to press? (not all directions at once of course...)

thx......

you have to choose randomly .. either you're lucky and hit the right direction or not

im afraid you will get problems like that in software mode =\ open gl is the way the game is supposed to be played, otherwise you get a lot of graphical errors
