The game was released by Activision. In principle, EF 2 is the story line successor of EF 1, also based on the Quake 3 engine. The place is no longer called Voyager but Enterprise and the Tricorder is used much more often. A few more weapons, the graphics a bit better, that's EF 2. The gameplay of the singleplayer is much better compared to the first part, especially regarding the puzzles, while the multiplayer has lost some pace.

Buying

After some disputes with Paramount (represented by Viacom) they returned the license for Star Trek games in general. For this reason, Eliteforce 2 and the other Star Trek games from Activision will no longer be distributed. Therefore the game is not available at GOG or other retailers. Therefore only the second-hand retail trade remains, e.g. via eBay or Amazon Market Place.

Installation

You install from CD 1 and 2, but you only need CD 1 to play. There is a patch 1.1 which should be installed. As always, the crack is optional, but saves you having a CD image or the CD inserted. The game also runs under Windows 7. Higher versions have not been tried yet.

It might occur, that you deleted the game without doing a proper uninstall. After that, the EF 2 installer still thinks, the game is installed while it is long gone. Therefore you cannot reinstall ist anymore. This problem can be solved by deleting the EF 2 registry data. In order to do so, delete the reg-folder \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Activision\Elite Force II. After that, the installer will work just fine once again.

Coop

EF 2's campaign can also be played in Coop mode with the corresponding mod. There is also an amateur interview with the creator of this mod on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDlX5Eguw3w

Masterserver

Just like EF 1, EF 2 also depends on master servers to find game servers online. Currently available master servers are:

  • master.stef2.daggolin.de (185.7.199.7, 2019-06-20)
  • ef2master.sfu-server.de (88.198.203.25, 2019-06-20)

Cheats

As for EF 1 there are single player cheats in the second part as well. The console must be usable (in the config or on the Windows console start with the switches +set ui_console 1 +set cheats 1, can also be specified in a shortcut) and then enter one of the following cheats on the EF2 console:
