View Full Version : "Color-switching" saber color

10-08-2005, 03:46 PM
A long time ago in my first days in JA, I met a person online who was using a saber color, that switches to red, green, yellow, blue, purple and orange.
Very cool, I asked him how, and he gave me a whole code to type in the console.
I didn't realise how cool it was, so I forgot to remember the code.

So does anyone here knows that code to get a color switching lightsaber?
I know there is one in forcemod, but I need it for basejka and jedi academy +

Read up on scripting. I don't script myself, but you'd probably need some sort of loop that just cycles through the saber colours.

Edit: Apparently this script will cycle through the saber colours with each press of a key. I'm sure you mean a script that cycles automatically, but maybe this'll do in the meantime?

set change1 "color1 1;;bind f12 vstr change2"
set change2 "color1 2;;bind f12 vstr change3"
set change3 "color1 3;;bind f12 vstr change4"
set change4 "color1 4;;bind f12 vstr change5"
set change5 "color1 5;;bind f12 vstr change1"
bind f12 vstr change1

I don't know if JA+ has a the "pimp" saber colors. It's probably only for mods that have TCK's improved JKA saber colors (FM3 and OJP as far as I know).

I would think it would be possible with a Script, since (IIRC) changing your saber color doesn't require your respawning for it to take effect (you just choose it in the profile menu and it changes instantly), unlike say your hilt model, and unlike your player model, that people can choose not to recognize until respawn (or they hit "TAB" to synchronize models).

So its probably possible even without a mod (though the Pimp saber does it nicely for you in OJP, heh).

Hah, I had a go at scripting it. >_> My script stops me moving while it changes the saber colours, and half of it doesn't work (because you can't change the saber colour repeatedly).

Here's what I had:
set colourchange1 "color1 1; wait 3; vstr colourchange2"
set colourchange2 "color1 2; wait 3; vstr colourchange3"
set colourchange3 "color1 3; wait 3; vstr colourchange4"
set colourchange4 "color1 4; wait 3; vstr colourchange5"
set colourchange5 "color1 5; wait 3; vstr colourchange1"
bind q vstr colourchange1

I don't think what you want would be possible. But then, I don't know much about scripting.

Well, I'm wary to suggest such things because it could in theory lag the server by doing that.

Ok, but you sayd OJP has it. Does that mean that when I download a OJP basic or enhanced (I don't know wich one) I can use that?

OJP and FM3 use a different saber blade color system. In this different system, there's a dedicated blade color called "pimp" that constantly shifts colors.

Yeah, I remember when they used this "pimp" saber back in JK2... everyone was like "WHOA!!! KOOLLLL D0000D!!!11"

10-23-2005, 09:49 AM
wow i have got to try that!

here is my saber color switching script
its some kind of a huge loop using the moving keys
-> theory: every time u press a w-a-s-d key the loop moves 1 step forward
just try :P
it included a switcher too, so u can switch it off if u want to

//on-off switch key
bind L "vstr rac_on"

//ur moving-keys
bind A "+moveleft;vstr rac"
bind D "+moveright;vstr rac"
bind W "+forward;vstr rac"
bind S "+back;vstr rac"

set rac_on "vstr rac_on_1"
set rac_on_1 "set rac vstr leer;echo ^7s^2aber ^7c^2olor ^7s^2cript ^7----^1DEACTIVATED^7----;set rac_on vstr rac_on_2"
set rac_on_2 "set rac vstr rac_w_1;echo ^7s^2aber ^7c^2olor ^7s^2cript ^7----^2ACTIVATED^7----;set rac_on vstr rac_on_1"

set rac "vstr rac_w_1"
set rac_w_1 "set rac vstr rac_w_2"
set rac_w_2 "set rac vstr rac_w_3"

set rac_w_23 "set rac vstr rac_w_24"
set rac_w_24 "set rac vstr rac_w_25"

Yeah, it's in OJP Basic... (http://strategy.jediknight.net/jka/downloads.shtml)

how do you activate pimp saber in OJP, can't get it to work
actually, I can't get the rgb_saber1 codes to work in ~tabs also, help?

O Kurgan, update that page. Your version is behind.

This guy probably has the shader conflict dealie.

Pimp saber is one of the possible saber options while selecting a saber color/hilt. It's the icon with a multicolored saber.

You mean the one with the White and Black sabers not showing up? I still do, since I couldn't find the update. :(

It's on pcgamemods at the moment.

12-07-2005, 12:27 AM
ojp.jediknight.net, you can always find the lastest releases from there.

12-07-2005, 08:03 AM
Sorry I'm behind on my updating. Maybe I'll fix that tonight in between studying for finals. :P

12-07-2005, 03:11 PM
Well, not much is changed I think... is there any new OJP enhanced?

12-07-2005, 05:39 PM
Not much has changed?! Have you even checked it out? I got the holstered weapon code to work without using special models!

And, no, there hasn't been an Enhanced release for a while now.
