View Full Version : Taunts, meditate etc...

In the Key Config menu there is the option to bind keys to actions such as taunt, meditate, gloat, etc.

However I cannot get any of them to work except taunt.

I know they can be done as I have seen the screenshots.

Can anyone tell me how to do these taunts in MP?

Sorry if this has been asked before, which I am sure it has, as I have read other people asking in the servers, but there is no search function in the forums atm.

In SP they all work, in Duel they all work. In all other MP game modes only taunt will work.

That's just how they designed the game.

Thanks for the reply,

Weird that they would deliberately remove cool functions from the game.

I wonder what the reason for that was.

Ah well, I guess I will try some duel servers to see how they look.

Just watch... Someone will make an admin mod that lets you use the emotes in all the game modes and adds 969469352 new emotes.

Im not sure but if I see you using emotes excessivly in duel mode...except to get a saber through your behind.

A bow at the start...fine, I have the will power to prevent myself from stabbing you for foolishly lowering your saber. But when people start sitting, flipping, and taunting.....and then expecting to NOT be attacked (lol).

Talking or playing with emotes wastes time. Others are waiting for their turn and they certainly don't want to watch as you play games and chat with your friends....so ill ensure you die quickly, or ill die trying. Etherway...I win :)

Um i was kind of hoping they would keep it in MP, have you every played academy mod on JO? the am commands for sitting and standing are highly used and adds depth to the game, Somebody can sit down and watch people fight or sit and talk about whatnot, as long as they would make it impossible to attack people sitting down it would be perfect

No.... If you could not attack someone who was sitting, all I have to do is sit and I am safe... it would be way to abused...

Well in academy mod for JO you can't really attack people sitting unless you attack them certain ways, and it's not abused at all, and ive joined tons of servers with academy mod never once saw people abusing it to pussy out of a fight or anything, can't do it in a duel anyway.

The way the JA emotes work is that you're actually more vulnerable using them than not.

If they gave you any kind or protection, they would unbalance the game and basically end up being an exploit.

They were only included in Duel and SP because that is where the "Role Players" get their kicks. There is little point in using them elsewhere.

I don't know if they work during a Lightsaber challenge (in FFA), although I would think that would be just as suicidal... ; )

guy, a mod is slightly different from the game. People usually wont' download a mod to go in and exploit it...unless its a very popular mod.

The JA taunts suck compared to the JO taunts anyway. In JO the characters wave their hand in a cool taunting manner and say something amusing like, for my Chiss model, "Out of sight, out of mind, says I." In JA I taunted and found that my Chiss became stuck in place, said "Take that!" in a voice sounding nothing like the character, and did some stupid saber twirling. Why would anyone want to do that? :confused:

Then just use your skin from JO ;)
