View Full Version : OJP discriminates against other mods?

Harsh title I know, but it simply ignores mods other that OJP Basic or the basejka in the serverlist when I search for servers. All the servers I search up with OJP Basic are either basejka or OJP Basic servers...
Not that it bothers me that there are no JA+ servers visible :)

That is done on purpose, you're not supposed to connect to other mods from the serverlist, it f*cks up the filesystem. Always start a mod with +set fs_game dirname in the shortcut or command line.

ie: JA+ is +set fs_game japlus and ojp-b is +set fs_game ojpbasic isnt it?

Quite frankly I would remove the mods menu if i really wanted as it kinda screws up sometimes, and it wont load things such as custom language files, new gla anims, etc.

I dont suppose you could change your title for this thread a bit? I dont want new players to come to this forum for the first time and get scared off by a thread title, hypothetically speaking since I doubt that would really scare many off. How about: "OJP discriminates against other mods on the server menu!!" or something like that. Heck, even saying: " WHO WANTS FREE BEER" would get peoples attention the same way without scaring them off (ok, most people. LOL!)

All mod types (I think it's shown as "N/A" in the browsers) is a possible server filter in OJP Basic. I'm not sure how filtering the servers for the mod is discriminating against other mods.

Hmm all mods filter out the other mods, its a usefull tool so that you can find servers that are running the same mod as you are currently running. For example say you were running OJP, and you wanted to play an ojp server, you wouldnt want to have to get server info on every server you look at to make shure its an ojp server and not an mb2 or base or ja+ server.

Its not discriminating at all it just a feature which is usefull which nearly all mods have (for most games aswell)

Ok title changed(but does not seem to work, oh meh :p), interesting how fast everyone replied don't You think :P
Anyway, what if the 'auto mod loading' was disabled when running OJP?

Example: when You're running basejka and connect to a JA+ server, the game loads the JA+ mod and when You /disco from the server You got the JA+ mod running on Your JK3.
