After choosing Arcade Custom or Mapmaker/playmap, I think the menus should go like this:

#1) Choose Game Type:
- deathmatch
- capture the bag
- bag tag
- thief
- flame tag
- virus
- zones
- gladiator
- king of the hill
- VIP (escort)
- jailbreak
- assault
- story? (with co-op/counter-op objectives for each map)

#2 Choose location (map)

#3 Basic Options
- team play (y/n, may be forced for some game types)
- display radar (y/n)
- always start with gun (y/n)
- friendly fire damage (y/n)
- pace (chill/normal/frantic)
- powerups (y/n or selectable?)
- weapon select
- bot select (include switch for character abilities in bot select menu)
- music select

#4 More Gameplay Options
- handicaps (y/n)
- finite lives (choose number)
- shrink (y/n)
- monkey assist (choose # of monkeys)
- health control (choose one of normal/regeneration/vampire/leech/one shot kill)
- time limit
- score limit
- score method

#5 Character Select


This would allow for many combinations of the game types available in TS2.

I say you don't have to pick the game mode. Just make it yourself! (basically)

Like in Perfect Dark. You could have team King of the Hill, free-for-all Hacker, stuff like that. I'm thinking like mixing game modes -- Team Deathmatch + Elimination + Deliver the Bag (Capture the Bag only the opposing team's bag is in your base) + Monkey Assistant = COUNTER-STRIKE WITH MONKEYS!!!

You see all the fun you could have?

Also, spectator mode would be cool, for online, and LAN.

There should be something called Army where you have one comm who is in the base and tells all the Bots and people what to do. Like "Natural Selection," kinda, but without the buildings and technology.

Also, the Arcade League, to be completely completed it must have the battles mastered with One, Two, Three, and Four players, like the Challenges in Perfect Dark. Same thing with the Challenges in TS2.

Vehicles! Oh my god, vehicles! Let the Halo-age begin!

More outdoor maps! Dammit, outdoor maps! Need outdoor maps!

When in split-screen and any Team game, an option where you have a Team Status display in the center of the screen, between each individual player's screen.

AHAHHAHAHAHAHHAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I go crazy when I want stuff out of a game.

:D :D :D

Oh yeah, mixing of the characters! Choose different legs, arms, torsos, and heads for every character!

You should be able to preview the music when you are selecting it, like Perfect Dark. I hate it in TS2 where I have to go into the game if I want to hear the damn song, then quit if I don't like it. (Speaking of music, the beginning of Warzone sounds a bit like the Exorcist, doesn't it?).

You should be able to "set" weapons, like Options like "Only Have This Gun," "Cannot Pick Up Ammo," "One-Shot Kill Weapon."

PLEASE bring the headshots back! At least make it an option.

The point of my menus is that you could do just that! Yes, you have to select a game type (is it going to be "king of the hill" or "thief"?) ... but after that you can turn on team play, finite lives (elimination), monkey assist , and leech if you want.
