Sincest is designed for for people settings up a server,
for LAN games (servers and clients) and for single players trying out mods & maps. It
can be used to play online, but GameSpy
is much better suited than Sincest.
Some of Sincest many features are:
- Support for an unlimited number of mods.
- Automatically lists all maps you have, including those in
pak files and allows you to easily select them to start a game on. The maps list has built
in auto-complete and can be optionally sorted.
- Maps can be deleted or renamed by Sincest (excluding those
in pak files), useful when trying out new maps and finding out that they suck.
- Allows you to easily start you own SiN server (dedicated or
listen) by selecting your settings from the easy to use, yet powerful user interface.

start a single player game.

descriptive name for a server address and easily connect to it.
- Extensive list of command line
options so you can add you own options to Sincest profiles to suite your needs.

before it is launched and manually edit it, you also have the ability to edit the
server.cfg file manually before SiN is launched.
- You can add anything you want to the command line that will

last five extra command line switches you added will be in the drop down list.
- A popup menu containing command commands that you can be
added to command line (including a +exec menu that lists all config files), and a popup
menu that you can customise with your own settings.
- All config files (*.cfg) in 'base' and the current mod
directory (including those in a 'configs' sub-dir) are listed in a popup menu and can be
opened with the associated program for editing.

current mod directory and having the option to add "exec <config file>" to
the autoexec.cfg in the same directory.

associated program. Making trying out new mods easier.
