This review features a video and reiterates some of what is already in the description. The patch does everything it claims to do and a lot of players are already using it. 5/5

One of the main features of this Add-on is the Windows 10 fix. There are new features that are on by default and you can use a console command to turn them on/off. I think changing the assault rifle's alt-fire to the primary fire button is a good option and it is on by default. If the user does not like this feature they can turn it off by using input_swap_assault_rifle_controls I do not use the shotgun version of this command so I turned it off with input_swap_shotgun_controls

After typing nw_meter into console, on the left part of my screen appeared a new net-meter and a FPS counter. This new net-meter is more aesthetic than Pure Faction's default and is more accurate. (Make sure Show Net Meter in F1 options is uncheckmarked). You can use the FPS counter to troubleshoot your frames per second (FPS). Use the console command r_fps_override to change the FPS limit. It is important to mention that you can no longer use Pure Faction's F1 options menu Frame limit. You need to use r_fps_override

If you are on old hardware or your computer is slow use r_fps_override 125 to limit the FPS to 125. 120 is Red Faction's default FPS and 150 is the original Pure Faction's maximum. If you have good computer hardware or seem to run RF well you may want to experiment with values between and including r_fps_override 240 to r_fps_override 1020 (This version of Addon was updated with fixes related to high FPS). These bugs are always absent at 120 to 150. During testing, no high FPS bugs were found using values at 240 or higher. If you are uncertain with what FPS to use I highly recommend r_fps_override 240 since most RF players' computers can take full advantage of it on all default maps and some custom.

con_color 100 70 28 197 is used to change the console color to Pastel Orange. (100, 70, and 28 are RGB values and the 197 modifies transparency). You can replace these values to get different colors. con_color -1 returns it to the default.

Another feature that I do not use is pitch correction. I consistently hit more when game_pitch_correction is FALSE (turned off). Pitch correction makes the y-axis less sensitive, more specifically it makes it move at a constant rate. Red Faction's default pitch has a certain amount of acceleration and deceleration. This was probably done for console versions of the game. You can test pitch correction by using the 8 (up arrow) and 2 (down arrow) on the num pad.

I made a video that shows the improved auto-download feature and the weapon stay chatbox command for servers: .sv_weapons_stay
In this video, you can also see aqua colored chat, first person weapon fixed on widescreen, and the new net-meter. Lastly, you will hear the "new player" sound when people join.

Pure Faction Addon 2.0j also features:

-When you first start PF and load the server list, it retrieves servers from both the FactionFiles/PureFaction tracker and the rolph tracker formerly known as the Default tracker.

-True widescreen mode.

-Servers always arranged by player count and when you leave a server it takes you back to the server list. (Default RF takes you to the main menu).

-If you run this as a server, the amp timer is always supposed to be correct.

-"New Player" sound is played when RF is minimized.

-F.lux support: If you install F.lux, you can play RF with flux running. This Addon ensures that flux always loads when the game is launched, does not turn off RF's gamma/brightness (in RF options), and has a console command r_flux to toggle it on/off. This is one of the coolest features I have seen in a RF client.

f.lux is a cross-platform computer program that adjusts a display's color temperature according to location and time of day. The program was designed to reduce eye strain during night-time use and reduce disruption of sleep patterns. This program has similar purpose and functionality to Apple's Night Shift and Microsofts Night light. Website: www.justgetflux.com

-If you type in a command and a question mark after it, it will reveal the current setting so if you type in con_color ? into the console, then it will feed you back "con_color is 0 150 255 200" (or whatever RGB color you set your console color to).

Tip: Type help into the console to see a list of all commands. Page up and Page down buttons will reveal all of them. When you enter a command it will tell you if it is on or not. Press the END button to exit scroll mode in console.
