Default I want to play SS2 again, what mods should I install?

The title says it all, I stumbled upon the SS2 dvd and I was thinking to play again.

What mod should I play? I usually dislike mod that increase the firepower as they make the game too easy, but I am open to any suggestion.

I already downloaded the mod that makes kleers fast as in SS1.

InSamnity 2. It does increase the firepower you have, but you can set the enemy multiplier and such as high as you want if you want more challenge. It's hands down the biggest and funniest mod for the game. Classic SS2 is also a good option if you prefer more SS1 style gameplay.

InSamnity 2 is like Parse Error, right? Parse Error and Serious Violence show exactly the problem. It is plenty of enemies, true... but you get so much firepower that all the game bar few arenas is easier.

I tried Serious Sam 2 Overdose, a part of the ``developer cheats enabled'' banner seems nice. I will check the Classic SS2. Other suggestions?

With InSamnity 2, you can adjust it so that they're something like double the amount of spawns, but not have unlimited ammo, double guns, or anything that makes you stronger. Give it a shot.

Yep, if anything you can make the game much harder with InSamnity 2. Try 20x enemy multiplier with just standard weapon firepower and tell us it's easy.

I am trying Classic SS2 and it is lovely. It seems keeping the best of SS2 and SS1... Of course I am at level 2 so it is soon to say

A part of the audio, I can hardly hear enemies. It is weird seeing a kamikaze charge and hearing a weak 'eeeeehh' only when they are extremely near.

Have you tried changing the max. allowed sounds in the sound settings? Maybe it's set too low and that's causing the missing audio...

It is not a problem of number of sounds, but of volume. It is very very low.

I found a way to make the the linux version work even if it still uses the obsolete libxf86misc, but in this version are the mods which do not work. Sigh... I guess I am out of luck. Windows: no sounds. Linux: no mods.

Bump!

When I was almost giving up I found a solution... Now I just have to understand how to use InSamity mod...


Edit: ok... So I tried few levels with Overdose, Classic and InSamnity2.
It is indeed hard to say what is the best... so at the moment I keep all of them.

For example I love that Insammity removed the invisible walls, but I might prefere the Classic gameplay. Thanks for advices guys.


Edit2:

Do you play InSamnity2 or Classic SS2 in SP? What options do you use?

In InSamnity2 I use 5x enemies, almost no falling damage, only double weapons and a little faster projectiles, Serious difficulty.

In Classic SS2 I use the ``nasty brawl'' monster substitution.
