View Full Version : Guns Only - How can I do it?

03-22-2004, 12:43 AM
Hey folks.

I know you can enable sabers-only within the game, and I read an article about the GC and XBOX ports that said they had this feature: Guns Only.

I know there's a way to do this on the PC version, because I've worked with Q3 engine games before.

Is there a console command or a mod out there so I can do this?

I think you turn off the force power Saber Offense. Type the command FORCETOGGLE into the console, and it'll show you the full list of all options.

Tried that, it just grays out the saber offense option, but it still lets me and all bots use it. I tried killing all the bots once to see if the changes would effect on next respawn, but it didn't work.

Isn't there something like "flags" or some internal advanced server config file i can edit?

Found it - type g_weapondisable 4 into the console, disable force saber attack and defend, then restart the server. More help here (http://www.jediservers.com/help_setup.asp#).

I was helping a guy do this in JA. It's actually quite buggy and hard to do in JA (he wanted No Force guns), though I did figure out using the following:

g_maxforcerank -1
g_forcepowerdisable 262143
g_weapondisable 0
g_forceregentime 9999

Again, that's JA 1.01, not JK2 I'm using it for. I wish it was as easy as in JK2. : (

you gotta disable all force saber skills and that's it I think... I don't remember I did it a long time ago... I started writing a program called Jedi Knight II: Server Administrator that can do the binary addition for you to disable weapons/force/etc...

I saw a program called Jedi Academy Runner. It's for making a server (and you can select weapons disabled).

Yes, but the trick is having guns only (ie: getting rid of the saber).

I think in JA there's a bug preventing you from removing the saber properly, so you have to use a workaround like I posted above.

As to JK2, I don't know, I've never tried it. It may have the same bug or it may do it properly (in which case disabling Saber Throw, Saber Offense/Saber Attack and Saber Defense/Saber Defend all together as well as disabling the weapon [saber] itself should do the trick).

If you are just trying to get bots to use guns only, you can edit the .jkb files to make the bots never use a saber (for instance, the default Lando bot doesn't use a saber). Use that as a template to create a "gunsonly.jkb" file and make all of the bots in the bots.txt file use it for their personality file (make a "mod" in a .pk3 file).

The default Lando bot has perfectaim ON, so you might want to change that for your "gunsonly.jkb" file. Otherwise, the bots will all be "aimbots" with annoyingly-perfect accuracy.
