I have set up a server for ffa on JK3. The Red Queen try it. My question is what are all the new map names has any one have them yet I want to set up maps from other MP game Maps not in FFA you can do it if you have the Map names. The snow in one Map is great think about that in FFA. I get cold just thinking about it. Defernt maps keeps the game fun. I find when you add maps others who dont have them just go to other servers and useing maps that are already in the game keeps them on the server in not bored. See you on my server or send me a email. I well respond to questions about server making. I have had lot of time doing it in JK2 Windows servers and Linux to.:cool:

Do you run a dedicated server on a seperate machine or do you run the server on the same client? I have two computers, one main and the other a server. I ran the dedicated server on the one PC and noticed that people join and then get immediately disconnected. I have a linksys firewall and i tried both port forwarding as well as placing the server in the DMZ and still no luck.

People are stating that they get illigite server and parse errors. But completely random. People last about 1 minute in the game before disconnected. If I connect though, I never get disconnected through the LAN.

Any thoughts?

I cant even get that far.. at one point I was havign people play just fine, but now I cant even get the game to broadcast over the master server(s). I am using a Linksys Wireless router and have the dedicated pc set up as being hardwired to the router. I have gone through both the Port forwarding and Port trigger, but to no avail.

Hi so much to cover so lets start at the first part and work our way down. Linksys Router if you have other brands it will be close but you must interpet the diferance as I use a Linksys Router as well. here we go. Go to the Advancced Tab then to Forwarding this is Port Forwarding put a name in the Customized Applications I put JK3 this info only so it does not do any thing by its self. Next under EXT.PORT add 28069 to 29071 you could just put 29069 to 29071 this allows 3 ports open the first one allows JK2 and JK3 ports open you use the one that works best for you. Then check the Protocal UDP this is the Protocal that JK3 use's add IP Address of your game server must be static IP so the IP address does not change. In windows must set a IP address manule no dhcp to put the IP address on the server only you can still use the Service for your workstations just not this server. Now push the Apply button you done on the Router part. Hop this helps if you stiil have issues test the server by hooking it straght up too the modem let it genarate a IP address or if on DSL put in the IP address given you to test and find out if the ISP is alowing you to run this service on the Cable or DSL line, some Cable and DSL companys are restricting this from happening. I think all broadband clients should be alowed to uses there lines as they like but that is getting off the subject.

Hi second part the server. I will post my server Info use it as is it work great for me and lots of hours spent makeing it. Me server is sound for a Version 1 with out the first SP made yet. Here it is.
First the Bat file that calls the program "jampDed.EXE" +set sv_pure 1 +set com_zoneMegs 32 +set com_hunkMegs 32 +set com_soundmegs 16 +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg This is very inportant all the +set need to be the way they are only +exec server.cfg can be changed as it is the Config file for the server. The other lines are setting that make the server Stable.
you can run this from a bat file or comand promt if you like to type in the info by hand. You can also uses this on linux by adding it to a File.pl pearl script file lots more to do for Linux get to that later. also copy the Base folder to the server from your workstation that you installed the game on as this is the files needed to run the server. You will also need the dedicacted Win32 server EXE file from Lucausfiles. I am running the retal version of the game with the dedicated server file if you are runnig beta there may be changes that have been made and your server may never be stable as retal verstion. With that all out of the way lets get back to the server recap we have a good base diretor in a dedicated server file and the Bat file made now the server.CFG file.

//EOF

This file works great for me there are other setting that can be added and some can be taken out up to you have fun.

Good info. As for the second portion of ports, I would strongly suggest that you do not use a field from 28069 to 29071 UDP. You will essentially open 1003 ports. Better idea would be to create two seperate forwards. JK2 would be 28060 thru 28071 and JK3 would be 29060 thru 29071. At least that's only 22 ports rather than just over a thousand.

Also, doesn't it say on the web page of Lucas Arts that 28070 thru 28081 need to be inclusive (both UDP and TCP)?

I think the Lucas Art support page is incorrect, they state ports in the 28k range for JK3 but the text screen shows the ports to be in the 29k range.

Also, do you play on your dedicated server with the same machine or with another machine?

MasterAcad
09-19-2003, 07:39 PM
Yes your right about the ports but I have only the server open on thoes ports and some people chose other ports that the one you have said I will haveto check on the TCP I know that UDP was last time and My server works on just UDP. I run seperat computers for server and Client I would say dont put any computer open to the outside that your not ready to have atacked so dont use your computer that has all your important stuff on it to run a server from. Again thank you for the corection on two many ports open I new it was to many but if your running a server just for this its not that big of a deal. Burn a cd with all the files to put your server back on line or better yet make a image of the hole server for fast restore if you have the means.:cool:

Good advice. After speaking with a Lucas Arts tech rep today, he informed me that the best thing to do was make a copy and use the copy to run the dedicated server. Right from the words of the tech. He also stated, that while those using illegal copies will get kicked (teaches those that buying games and supporting them leads to better games in the future) is normal.

As for the ports, those listed on the Lucas Arts page may be incorrect as they state the JK2 ports are in the 28k range. JK3 runs off of the 29k range. The page states JK3 are in the 28k range.

I will forward those ports stated and hopefully that will work with UDP only. I agree that I only use the dedicate PC for hosting games so opening up a 1000 ports is no problem, but it doesn't mean it's a good idea in the end.

Thanks for the advice man!

BTW - The tech support stated that he was going to look into the problem that I had and email with any information he can find out. He did state, however, that since the game is so new and the "leaked" version is out there, everyone with legit copies are suffering for their cheap actions.

I have tried all of the above. I have also updated my firmware. But I have a Dlink 604 wireless router. I know that i cannot host a game with my xbox due to my pc being wireless. I was wondering if this could be my problem?

humble48
09-21-2003, 01:38 AM
I still see the same problems as well. People are still being disconnected after they enter the game. I have placed my server in my LinkSys DMZ to see if that helps. The only other thing that I could possible do would be to remove the Linksys completely and go direct to the cable modem, but I will not go that route. Safety is more important.

I think that since the game is so new, patience might be the best answer and a future patch might resolve these issues. When I ran a JK2 server, I don't believe I started dedicating until after the second patch.

As for the wireless router configuration, technically, you should be able to connect via LAN to the server because you would essentially be on a LAN. However, I am not familiar with the configuration settings of a DLink. As long as the ports forward to the correct address, it should work.

I am sort of confused though...which machine are you attempting to run the dedicated server on (PC or XBox)? Also, does the XBox also connect wireless or is it direct?

Anyone know how to make a non-dedicated server work on a DI-614+ D-Link router? I tried just opening the ports but it didn't work.

Andy867
09-21-2003, 05:17 PM
Well, the manual also assumes that the average person doesn't know how to adjust the priority settings in the OS. So, what I do is when I load up the dedicated server file and have it execute, I then load up MP, and once its done loading up, I hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and right click on the jamp.exe file and kick the priority settings up to high, and I am able to easily play on my own servers or another without causing lag on my server or another.

Hi serveral new questions hear I will try to answer them. Please if any one finds I have miss stated any info please corect me as I am not perfect. First several people have asked about more than one kind of server. I prefer the dedactaed server with ether windows dedecated server file to run the server or Linux dedecated sever file on a seperat server altogether. You can run the install on a seperat server and pick advaced setting when creating a server in the menu and pick dedecated server and other options this is also the easy way for people that dont like haveing lots of controle to your server setup. If you dont pick the dedecated server option you have a hole diferent kind of server one the doesnt avertise its self to the server comunity this is for people who want to call there frends and say heres my server IP address lets play with out other people knowing we have a server. There are mulitable server types. If you want answers to questions about a server set up I will need to know what your wanting the server to do for you in the end result and what your restrictions are the will reduce your options are. Please if any one can answer questions on Xbox setups go for it as I have no Xbox and have no way of knowing what you will need to do to make a server on a Xbox. My full info on Xbox is it runs on Ethernet the same way as windows so ports it requires need to be opened and a conection to the network suplied by nic card built in or added. Some Xbox systems are wireless as the use gatway that plug into the nic on the Xbox and the Gatway is a Wi Fi unit to conect it to the network. Microsoft is now making its own gatway for this now I say the ad a few days a go other venders make the Gatway as well. Second point to bring up all the dedecated server type's have Issues on crashing servers right now JK3 is in real bad need of a Service Pacth for the dedecated servers as Windows and Linux will both stall in shut down. I am testing the second Linux 1.01 file yo see if it is better ley you know how it goes later. Please if your server well not advertice to the master server with the Info from above you have to choices. Put your server straght on the Modem to test only dont leave it there just test to see if your ISP will let you run a server. Second wait for a update the choice is yours dont endanger your critical information this way Thats why I say only use a computer for this that is not used for any other perpuse. Remember we are only a few days into the new release of the game and the master server is being adjusted as much as we are adjusting our setting for it. Please forgive my spell as I rushed and I am not a great speller in the first place.

Hi I was asked about SIEGE settings this is a new game for JK and looks fun I have not played it yet. Hear are the settings for Siege.

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 4 = POWER DUEL
// 6 = TEAM DEATHMATCH
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
set g_gametype 7
set g_autoMapCycle 1
map mp/siege_desert
//EOF

This is the simple way to set it up.
But do I use the simple way no I must always do things the hard way how about you?
hear are my settings for Siege the more complex way.

set d1 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_desert ; set nextmap
vstr d2"
set d2 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_hoth ; set nextmap vstr d3"
set d3 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_korriban ; set nextmap vstr d1"
// start the first map
vstr d1

Still not done you can add difernet setting per map this way by add set comands in each line like this.

set d1 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_desert ; set g_speed "275"; set nextmap vstr d2"
set d2 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_hoth ; set g_speed "300"; set nextmap vstr d3"
set d3 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_korriban ; set g_speed "250"; set nextmap vstr d1"
// start the first map
vstr d1
//EOF

the above added settings are for g_speed settings per map will change speed in each map as listed Cool you can add as many settings as you want per map this way tell me you have no controle in your server invirement now. Try setting your g_saberDamageScale per map Saber Damage is just what it sounds like you controle the amount of sever saber damage you want. And how about the g_weaponDisable and the g_forcePowerDisable camands if you think certain maps are best used with certain wepons are force powers set them and have fun the amount of changes is up to you. yes there are other settings needed for differant game types but I hope this has opened up some eyes as to what can be done. Again forgive any miss spelled words.

you need to have your dedicated server on a different port, than your Jedi Knight 3 client so in the command line of your shortcut it would look like the following :

"C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\jampDed.exe" +set net_port 29071 +exec server.cfg

see the +set net_port I changed it to 29071 cuz JK3 is using 29070 by default, this is why you cant see any servers while yours is up. There you go, have fun.. I cant get to see it listed tho but people are connected to it.. I can connect to my server too, to play with others.. I just cant see it into the free for all listing.... bah. needs a patch.. master server is screwed up.

I did not write the artical above and could not find a name of the person that left it but it is very good and to the point about what says the only addition I will add is copy your base director to another location as several file are used by both server and client and it well cause a crash if you dont also make sure the server port is open as it has been changed to 29071 from 29070. You no longer have to forward 29070 if you change it to 29071. Thanks to the person who did the artical that I have now posted for you.

Hi I have been asked for the info of adding Bots to a server. in yor server.cfg file add set bot_enable 1 then add the line set bot_minplayers x the disired amount of bots. The bots will go away as human players come into the server. The bots with this setting are random and the level of play is random as well. For the server admin that likes controle this is the set up you want.
In the server.cfg file have the line.

exec botfile.cfg

in the botfile.cfg have this.

seta bot_enable "1"
seta bot_minplayers "x" // x is where the amount of bots you need in the game.
seta bot_nochat "0" // 0 turn chat on 1 turns chat off.
seta bot_fastchat "1" // 1 on 0 off.
seta bot_challenge "1"
seta bot_groundonly "1"
seta bot_thinktime "100"

//this add's the bot's
addbot Reborn 3 RED 0 Reborn
addbot Luke 3 BLUE 0 Luke
// the name of the bots well vary must use the corect name or the bot well not be in the game. 3 is for the level you want the bot to attack at. Red or Blue is the team color you want the bot on. 0 is the Ping level you want the bot to work at Have fun with bots now.

I've done as you said, [nWo] Filth. And now I can at least create a dedicated server, and join it myself.

But, I've tried to create a server lots of times now, but... as soon as anyone joins(me or someone else), the server goes mad and sends about 1000000000 copies of this message:
"NET_SendPacket: WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL "

I set up a server, but I'd still like a few more tips on tweaking...

For 1, How do I ban someone easily?

2. I tried changing maps once with /rcon map mp/ctf1 and it changed maps, then immediately crashed.

3. Is someone working on writing an admin mod for this?

4. Where can I get a full list of all config options, rcon commands?

The IP for my server is 66.159.234.202 if anyone is interested in playing there, it's a Sabers Only CTF server with pickups disabled, based out of Los Angeles running on a beefy server, with a beefy connection.

// Server Config
seta sv_hostname "^1LKM818.com^3 Sabers Only CTF"
seta g_motd "Please be respectful or leave. ^3Forums at http://lkm818.com/phpbb2/"

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 4 = POWER DUEL
// 6 = TEAM DEATHMATCH
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
seta g_gametype 8 //CTF Mode
seta sv_privateClients "2" //2 reserve slots, admins need to play too!
sv_privatePassword "xxxxx" //the password for the reserve slots (I love this)
seta sv_maxclients "22"//22 max slots, only 20 are visible, the other 2 are reserved
seta sv_maxPing "200" //prevents laggers
seta g_inactivity 0
sv_maxRate 10000
set g_allowvote 0 //Voting disabled
set timelimit 20 //20 minute time limit
set capturelimit 5 //max capture the flag limit of 5
set g_autoMapCycle 1 //set to cycle through maps
g_weaponDisable "65531" //sabers only
seta disable_item_shield_sm_instant "1" //disables small sheield boosters
seta disable_item_medpak_instant "1" //disables medpaks
seta disable_ammo_thermal "1" //disables thermal detonators
seta disable_ammo_blaster "1" //disables blaster ammo
seta disable_ammo_metallic_bolts "1" //disables metallic bolt ammo
seta disable_ammo_powercell "1" //disables powercell ammo
seta disable_ammo_rockets "1" //disables rocket ammo
seta g_dismember "100" //dismemberment enabled
map mp/ctf4 //what map to start with

Comments and questions are welcome, and you're welcome to visit our forums at http://lkm818.com/phpbb2 and click on the Jedi Academy section. I will soon put up a website with hopefully my own forums separate from the main clan forums.

Are you trying to run a server as well as play in one? or possibly are you not opening up the UDP ports like 29071-29079 *I always leave 29070 closed so that I can still play games while hosting one.

Ive seen the Red Queen Server on the list in gamespy (Master Acad's Server), but mine wont appear :confused: :confused: :confused:
I hope Raven release a patch to sort out the server & bot route problems because jk3's a great game...i'd hate to see fail because of these minor things :(

Did not see that posted here so I figured I would post it.

There is a force calculator at the following website that lists all the force powers. All you do is check the force powers you want disabled and it will give you the number to put behind your g_ForcePowerDisable variable in your config. It says outcast on the top of the web page but it works the same for Jedi Academy.

OK, I am trying to run a server for my clan, but it isnt working :(. When I run the server, at one point it says this a whole bunch:
WARNING: CM_GRIDPLANE unresovable
Then says hitch warning and some number at the bottom. Also when I goto find my server I have to look under local(not sure if that is how it should be or not) and at the end of the name of it UDP is added..... Here is my server.cfg::


// Server Config
seta sv_hostname "^3JS Clan Server"
seta g_motd "No dark force powers"
rconpassword "0jr5e3"

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 4 = POWER DUEL
// 6 = TEAM DEATHMATCH
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
set g_gametype 8

seta sv_maxclients 12
seta g_inactivity 0
sv_maxRate 10000
set g_allowvote 1
set timelimit 0
set capturelimit 15
set g_autoMapCycle 1
set g_maxForceRank 6
set g_saberLocking 1
set g_saberLockFactor 3
set g_dismember 100
set g_forcePowerDisable 8640
seta sv_privateClients "2"

Number one right off the bat, this information applies ONLY to the legit version of the game. I know nothing about the betas or warez versions, I own it. If you are getting folder or other type errors, I can not help you, you need to buy the game.

There are just a couple of points I want to clear up for everyone. The information I post here and the other information I already knew about hosting dedicated servers for JO and JA will soon be in a server config guide I am writing, which will eventually be posted on my web site, along with my configuration guide for JO, and my mod setup guide for JO, and Lee's Oattes sabering guide that are already there. Also, on my web site I have a server status screen, which requires IE and a small plugin which is available on the site. If any of you want me to include your server on my page, just email me the ip and I'll throw it in the list. It is easy on that page to see multiple servers on one page, and at this time I have listed all favorite servers. It is updated with new servers as I get them.
Also, I will help anyone write a server.cfg file, and email you examples, if you email me.

If anyone would like to help me write the server config guide, email me your additions, and I will be sure to give you credit. After all, I don't know everything!

With that in mind, here is my email: master_jedi@comcast.net, and my web site: Inskipp's Jedi Knight Training Center (http://inskipp.no-ip.com) Please don't send deragatory comments, I know it leaves a lot to be desired, after all it's only my first website.

Ok, with that out of the way, I will explain the command line options I use in my shortcut. These also work similarily in JO, Quake 3, Elite Force 1, Return to Castle Wolfenstien. Just remember to make your initial shortcut to the multiplayer version of the game, if there is one. (ie. Quake 3 has only one .exe)

Now I am using windows, and the actual .exe from the game. I didn't bother with the "dedicated" versions that have been released, they are not necessary if you are using windows.

Here is my shortcut to run a server:

..\Jedi Academy\GameData\jamp.exe" +set net_port 29071 +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg

1st: +set net_port #
This one specifies the internet port that the server runs on. Before JA, this didn't need to be changed, because the client always would just use the next available port. In other games, it wouldn't be needed. So now we have to use seperate shortcuts to run a server or the game, making sure they are not on the same port.

2nd +set dedicated 2
This makes a dedicated server that is available both locally, and online. (If your firewall lets it through ). Now, and this is important, I have NEVER been able to see my local servers in the internet list. I always had to look in local. But just because you can't see it, it doesn't mean no one else can. Have someone check, or just wait until someone connects. Or email me your server ip and I'll add it to my status page, and you'll be able to tell if its working at a glance.

3rd +exec server.cfg
Exec means execute, and all you are doing is executing the specified file, in this case, server.cfg. It can be any file, as long as it is in your base folder. It is important to have a command that actually starts the server at the end of the file, if you don't, the server will not actually start. In my example it is vstr m1. But a simple 'map mp/ffa1' would also start the server.

There are others, like +set password ######, which sets the password to get on if its private, and +connect (ip), which connects you automatically to the specified ip, and +set fs_game (gamefolder), which allows you to run mods the right way (more detail in my mod config guide), and many others. So basically, when I play I have a shortcut that looks like this: /jamp.exe" +set net_port 29071 +set password mypassword +connect 192.168.0.12:29070. Easy as pie.

Well I hope this clears things up for those of you still having trouble, and remember, in my personal experience, I can NEVER see my own servers in the internet list, I must look under local. It may have to do with my firewall, I don't know.

Look forward to my server config guide soon, heck, this post will be half of it. But I will explain the server commands I use as well.

Please correct me if I have posted anything incorrect, or if you wish to add something. Below is an example server.cfg, which should be in your base folder.

//start of server.cfg
//my server config
seta g_dismember "100"
seta g_allowVote "1"
seta g_filterBan "1"
seta g_banIPs ""

seta rconpassword "putrconpasswordhere"

seta bot_enable 1
seta bot_minplayers 0
//change the above to however many bots you want
//they will be kicked off as each person joins

set m1 "map mp/duel1 ; set nextmap vstr m2"
set m2 "map mp/duel2 ; set nextmap vstr m3"
set m3 "map mp/duel3 ; set nextmap vstr m4"
set m4 "map mp/duel4 ; set nextmap vstr m5"
set m5 "map mp/duel5 ; set nextmap vstr m6"
set m6 "map mp/duel7 ; set nextmap vstr m7"
set m7 "map mp/duel8 ; set nextmap vstr m8"
set m8 "map mp/duel10 ; set nextmap vstr m9"

set m10 "map mp/ffa3 ; set nextmap vstr m11"
set m11 "map mp/ffa4 ; set nextmap vstr m12"
set m12 "map mp/ffa5 ; set nextmap vstr m1"

vstr m1
//starts the server

//
//end of file

I run a server called the "|Rx|Dojo Of Doom". Just like last time(jk2) I had a server up on the day of release, but I changed versions after picking up a copy at the store.

Since then on the new install the server was great for a few days. But apparently now people are telling me they can't find it on the regular list. I can see it from All Seeing Eye, as can others, but the in-game browser no longer shows it. It's a legit retail server, but it's not being listed anymore. This happened a few days after changing the running version, so it worked on this config prior to about tues-weds.

Any help is appreciated.

Woohoo my server works!! and shows up in the all seeing eye!!

Does anyone know how to use custom maps in a dedicated server? When i type in the map name on the config and start up the server it always says cant find map mp/.....
Im using JA custom maps aswell not JO, so i dont know whats wrong :mad:

Andy867
09-27-2003, 08:36 PM
for duel/ffa maps, you need to type

map mp/duel1 or whatever all the way up to 10

and for FFA, same deal

map mp/ffa1

and for siege you can type

map mp/siege_desert

map mp/siege_korriban

map mp/siege_hoth


same with CTF I would think(not a CTF player)

It seems that some of the configs posted here are edited versions of configs created by Jedi Runner. If many of the server cvars from JK2 are being used for JA then I could port the code from JK2 Runner to JA Runner pretty quickly. For those of you not familiar with Jedi Runner it is a windows program designed to make server setup as easy and painless as possible.

I am running two busy Jedi Outcast servers and a Jedi Academy server, and I highly recommend Jedi Runner to anyone running a server from home or on a LAN. All three of my servers are hosted now, but I started out like many of you, a total novice running a small server on my home computer. Not only does Jedi Runner make it very easy to do complex things (custom map rotations, force\weapon disables, custom bot combinations, and much more), but the Help section is very good and explains a lot of the cvars and what they do. I also learned a lot by studying the configuration files that Jedi Runner produced. Very highly recommended.

09-29-2003, 01:37 PM
TheAphextwin,

When do you think you will be able to switch the jedi runner program to run with Jedi Academy?

This could be a great help to me as server configurations are a real time waster to write (especially if your a newbie to this sort of thing :( ).

The cvars are slightly different in some cases to those in JO but i dont see the problem so far.

Can somone tell me when I create a .cfg file how do I set it up where my server will have a password. Also after I set a pass to set up a private slot what command so I type in console to get that slot

Andy867
09-29-2003, 04:34 PM
I think the command is sv_password "<enter password> " and to get the private client spot, you need to set the sv_privatepassword "<enter my password>" and then when you go to join a game, put the private password into the password spot that usually is for entering a locked game, and that SHOULD allow you to get into the game, even with it being passworded since it is a reserved spot.

Do u have a list of server config cvars that i could have??
you could email them to me at havenocommonsense@hotmail.com


I need a list of server options in more detailed format. the ones u get with the dedicated download isnt exactly the full list.

I tring to set up a deul server but i want it very specifically set up.

I was actually started writing a program like yours before i read your post but i didnt have enough info for the server setup cvars.

I may just write it for practice anyway. well see.

there is one more thing I want to ask.Is there anyway limit the ranks of the force.For example I don't want anybody to give grip 3 ranks.Can i forbid it?

I can help ya, first after getting into the Advanced screen, go to the very bottom portion and where it says BLOCK WAN REQUEST (ENABLED by Default)... DISABLE it... Then apply for the changes to take affect. Then go to forwarding and forward ports 29070~29079 and set it for either UDP or BOTh, and then put in your IP (can be obtained by going to start => run+ cmd and typing ipconfig it will look something like 192.168.1.102 or whatever.. then click apply.. that SHOULD get your ports opened to allow for dedicated server play

the best way to run a ded server on the same machine as playing is to make a copy of your base folder and put it somewhere else with the dedicated server executable. I'll use that one instead and allow the game you play on to use the original copy. (less laggy)

You will have to also change the port that your server uses on your machine


..\Jedi Academy\GameData\jamp.exe" +set net_port 29071 +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg

set the server to run on prot 29071 while your game runs on 29070.

use that for your shortcut to the dedicated server exe.

Jedi Academy servers simply do not show up most of the time. You have to have Gamespy Arcade to see 90% of the servers for JA. I'm shocked Raven has not moved more quickly to correct this.

Have people download Gamespy Arcade and they should be able to see your server fine. They can enter through Gamespy or they can just grab your IP and go in manually. It's free software.

So by reading this post I'm assuming there is no way to keep one bot in the Game ? In our JK2 server I have a custom personality bot (it's a actual pk3 files) SO when I try to add it the same way to our Jedi Academy Server It gets kicked out when someone joins. Kinda defeats the purpose of a training bot if it get kicked out of the server

Have people download Gamespy Arcade and they should be able to see your server fine. They can enter through Gamespy or they can just grab your IP and go in manually. It's free software.

From my understanding on the Raven Forums, according to Kenn Hoekstra, there is a patch In the works since they are very aware of the problem of very few servers showing up, but do not email Raven asking when the patch will be out since they don't know yet.

dam, now that what i call hate mail! :rolleyes:

I can see why people are angry about the in game server list being faulty but if people were just patient, then a patch will be out to fix the problem soon.

True that reaven should have fixed the problem pre-release but most of you dont understand that these companies are under great stress to release on the chosen date (or around about that). Most of the money spend developing the product will go into in the last month or so to get a release candidate. I've been under that sort of pressure before and its NOT nice!

I for one feel sympathy for Raven in that aspect.

NOW for some news relating to the topic...:thumbs1:

Before i saw the Apextwin's post about JK Runner, i was in the middle of creating a program that does just about the same thing. Its about 33% complete at the moment so i'll be trying to complete it by the end of the week.

Could you give me any idea of if u guys would be interested in this sort of program once its finished.

You MUST understand, even though Apextwin has written this stuff before, i'm a Computer Geek and i write these sort of programs just for fun. Its not going to be some amazing program, but it will do exactly wat it says on the tin. (thanks Ronseal Advert heh :) )

I have a question.

The mutliplayer maps in the game are in mp/maps but I have found a number of 3rd party maps are in /maps no mp folder. This causes a problem with my map scanner, I can add some code to handle this but want to know if all 3rd party maps will be in just /maps or can they be in either, mp/maps or /maps? Anyone care to fill me in?

If anything, you just re-pack the custom maps so that they will load into the MP folder like


FileName Content Size Folder
duality.bsp 2,330,021b maps\MP

instead of just having it load into the base folder for maps. or something like that so that it follows the JA order of things

Kinda defeats the purpose of a training bot if it get kicked out of the server

If you just want to have a 1 or more bots to keep a human company until more humans arrive, set bot_minplayers 2 or higher. If it is 2, the first human to join will kick 1 of the two bots, leaving one to practice with. The next human to join will kick the remaining bot, leaving two humans on the server. If one of the humans leaves, the server will add a bot to keep the total players 2 (1 human, 1 bot). It works the same for higher numbers, the server will add or kick bots to keep the number of players at the number set until the number of humans equals or exceeds bot_minplayer.

If you want to keep a particular bot on the server at all times set bot_minplayers 0, then addbot <botname>. The server will not kick the bot, no matter how many humans join.

3rd-party map .pk3 files are usually put in the \GameData\base folder.

yeah, wouldn't you just leave out the \maps or the \mp\maps
and just call teh pk3 file directly for d/l maps

That's not possible. You can always change the map manually using rcon.

After using the /rconpassword *password* for every command you issue, you need to have the /rcon in front of the command or the game wont know what you are trying to do (in your view)

That's the default setting, so you don't have to do anything.

i think the command you use if forcetoggle and it lists which numerical value represents the force power, and just use PageUp and down and individually disable/enable the ones ya want.

what about the server is not able to show W/L in game when you press TAB ?

I thought it was related to the frag_limit, duel_fraglimit settings but it doesn't help if i change them.

I've got a question.

I have a router and I've set up the ports 29069-29071 to come to my computer's IP. When I start a dedicated server with +set net_port 29071 +set dedicated 2 I see it in the local list (which is right I guess). But, is it ok to see my computer's internal IP in the list? Not the external?
