Hi all !!!

Im still waiting for my own Copy of JKO!

I know, the game is gone gold a time ago, but its the problem with the Pocket money.

I play the game at serval Play Houses , an enjoj it much!

Well the days, to getting the money are close, but i dont know if my little sucker of a Computer, can handle it.
And I aint got the bandwidth to get an demo if it will be relased one day.

It would be really cool if you Boys and Girls out there would post me your Systems configs....and experiance....
...so i can get some insight.
Sure i read this on the Game Box but .....


Maby this topic is as stupid as me and will be closed fast, but hey its me i'm a Pit Droid !!!!

Thanks ....and Peace

I have an AMD XP1500, 256 DDR Ram, and a Geforce 4 ti4400

I get about 90 FPS with everything cranked up.

I do get some wierd graphical errors when loading saved games and sometimes when I load up MP, but Im pretty sure it is something to do with me GeForce card.

04-25-2002, 02:51 PM
P4 1.6Ghz
Geforce 2 MX400
and a whopping 512 Mbs of DDRSDRAM (yes i love DDR)
and with everything crnaked up it STILL runs awsome even with the Geforce 2

You should be getting more than 90 FPS. There's a command line switch that sets the limit to 90 by default (I forget the command, but I know I changed mine).

My AMD XP1700, 512 DDR, Radeon 8500 was getting 90 FPS until I raised the limit to 200, now I'm getting anywhere between 90-150 depending on the effects/action/ enemies, etc...

Further, this game loads S-L-O-W, no matter what uber-system you have.

04-25-2002, 03:39 PM
If you figure out how to set the FPS cap, please post it.
Because I do infact get 90FPS all the time, no matter what.
Much appreciated.

04-25-2002, 03:47 PM
System Specs:

P-4 1700 mhz
GeForce 2 MX200

I'm getting about 80 FPS, due to the crappy (really!) video card and the fact that i need more RAM, but it's still very smooth.
Only slow down I'm getting is at the Swamps, in which I have to turn down the resolution.
All of the details maxed btw.

04-25-2002, 03:50 PM
I have:

Thunderbird 850 Mhz
384 MB of SDRAM
GeForce 3

I have all the detail maxed out and resolution at 1280x1024 and I always get smooth framerate. I have the shadows off, but they suck anyway.

04-25-2002, 03:54 PM
System specs:

AMD Athlon XP 1900+ (1.6 Ghz)
512 MB RAM
ATI Radeon 7500

The game runs fine with the graphics set as high as they can go.

i think the proper command for changing the FPS cap is "com_maxfps". but of course, i could be mistaken

04-25-2002, 04:39 PM
heyas USurper the command is seta_maxfps "an reasonable numer" If you do set this very high the game never tries to drop details on maps that do slow your FPS down. For instance you might be able to crank out 200 FPS in Yavin but not in Bespin but the game will try to push it to 200 and might result in some errors (in the form of graphical glitches).

BTW to the original poster. I got..

Pentium III@1 ghx
256meg PC133
Soundblaster live
Maxtor UDMA 66 40 gig drive
Alton m790 motherboard
Geforce2 MX400 (64meg)

and I ran the game in 1024x768 with 16bit textures and color depth, medium settings. And I average 40 FPS on most maps in mutliplayer.

I hope the info helps people.

04-25-2002, 05:35 PM

com_maxfps works!

Can you say "smoooooooooooth"? :D


04-25-2002, 05:50 PM
I was running jk2 with a 500mhz celeron 192 megs of ram voodoo 3 comp and had to set all the graphics on low for it to work decent, but it did work although on levels like yavin and bespin the sky was dark. I went and built an athlon 2100, geforce 4, 512 megs of ram, and all of a sudden those levels had daylight and i could run the game with all the settings as high as they could go.

04-25-2002, 06:57 PM
Athlon 600 mhz, Geforce256DDR, 256 Mb Ram.

A little on the low side :p but it actually runs JKII quite well, I can leave everything on at 1024x768 except for 32bit textures and it is very playable. The swamp levels are a different story however, but not unbearable.

04-25-2002, 06:57 PM
Thanx People....this will help me a lot.....

Hey Keep Posting !!!

-runs the game smoothly at high settings......except for
the swamp stage, where lowering the resolution fixes that prob.

-also i turned down the texture resolution/detail from very high to high, there's such a HUGE difference in LOAD TIMES

Lessee here...

AMD Duron 900 MHz
GeForce 2 MX400 64 MB
Hercules Fortissimo II PCI Audio Card
Windows XP Pro
ATT Broadband Cable

With all details cranked up at 800x600x32, I normally get around 60-70 FPS, except in the later Yavin levels, where I get 30-40. Hope this helps you out a bit. :)

04-25-2002, 07:32 PM
i dont get that hole "i got this and this fps"

anything above 35 frames per seccond cant be seen by the human eye anyway?

a dvd movie run at about 30fps

so, what if you get 150fps, you cant tell the difference anyway..

am i missing something here?

Bludshot, YOU HAD MY SYSTEM!! almost, i Had 350 mhz, voodoo 3, 389 ram, 40 gig drive, that was about a few weeks ago until i got MY NEW COMPUTER FOR MY BIRTHDAY ON MAY 19th!! Check my earlier reply for my new specs! I had win 98 too on the old system.

04-25-2002, 08:58 PM
I got my system EVERYTHING U SAW IN MY REPLY with my specs for ONLY 700 AND MY SYSTEM WORKS GREAT ITS an hp, and it rules.

i got....

duron 950 mhz
512 mb pc133 sdram
radeon 8500

evrything maxed and im gettin like 50 fps? WTF is up with this? o wait i know FSAA maxed and anisotrophic filtering on medium. :D

04-25-2002, 09:03 PM
That's not true actually. I read in a post somewhere around here that directs you to an article saying how 30 fps is good for movies because of things like motion blur but for video it is necessary to have more like 60 fps to be truly smooth to the eye.

If you got anything like this (especially the amd k6-2) dont even think about it

i bought the game because i could not resist.. but i cant even play the single player , as soon as a stormtrooper appear its lag time...

BUT i can play multiplayer though, with everything to low and 640 x 480 , 16 bit. i get between 15 and 25 fps nothing higher...

but i think its time to upgrade... but damn its a lot of money

Athlon 1.2G
Kyro 2 (Hercules 3D Prophet 4500)

Game Settings:
High Detail
Aniso OFF
all bit depth choices set to 32
Simple Shadows
Shaders ON

Indoors I seem to get between 70 and 90 fps. I think I max at 90 due to Vsync ENABLED. But I may try setting maxfps and refresh to 100 and see what happens. Not bad for a video card I bought new for $60.

Enabling Vsync produced a less "jittery" picture when moving with no "waves" running through it. If you have the power, try enabling Vsync - I was surprised but you can immediately see the improvement in IQ.

I play at 1024x768 with all the eyecandy on most of the time except the dynamic shadow thingies. I had to turn off some eyecandy for Artus Mines & Topside and the Yavin Swamp. Most of the time my fps is between 50-80.

Runs fast and smooth with all settings maxed

2nd computer:

GeForce 2 MX 400
IBM 10 GB 5400 rpm HDD

It runs "ok" if all settings are dropped down low, I wouldnt reccomend it though.

i'm hoping to upgrade to a 1.9ghz ahtlon, then maybe a new monitor cuz i scratched this one =[ and possible 5.1 speakers.

04-26-2002, 02:48 PM
i can't quite put everything jacked all the way up, it slows down in places. but hopefully if i get the xp1900 cpu and mobo i can.

04-26-2002, 03:01 PM
K, this is a laptop I'm using, I don't have any problems runnig the game, can't max the graphics but I can live with that.

600 MHz Intel Celeron

ATI Rage Mobility 128 8Meg (shared)

Fastest settings (w/ anistropic filt & dynamic light) on jk2ffa demo

700mhz 32.9 fps
800mhz 35.4 fps
870mhz 38.9 fps

And yes, my system slowed down to a crawl during the swamp levels! I imagine you probably need a P3-1000 or Athlon-1000 to get through the single player game or large multiplayer maps w/ players without any significant slowdowns.

Affordable, works pretty good. Cept for the damn lockups... probably too much crap going thru PCI bus.

Is The Swamp Map Set at higher Poly-count ,
or is it the whole Flora that causes the slowdowns ???

That + the fancy rain that sizzles on the saber + the water effects, etc.
