#1 If you are on a non-Truesaber (non- fanmod) server - don't go around exploiting the backstab - people will hate you.

#2. If you see a blue square box above a person - that person is talking or reconfiguring - don't attack that person.

#3. If you see a person walking around with no gun and the saber off, don't attack that person - he/she is either looking for someone or waiting for a duel.

#4. If you see people glowing or in a different color fighting each other - they are in a duel - leave them alone - you can't harm them anyhow, but you can get in their way.

#5. If a person is waving at you or another person (and you don't hear a taunt) - they are usually requesting a duel - don't attack the person - or at least accept the duel - hit the 'k' key.

#6. Don't ask questions until you read the manual and the latest update readme available in your JK2 directory.

#7. If you warezed the game, don't ask any questions, and realize that you just made a copy of a game that is worth twice as much than other games and we won't see ANY support if you don't buy the game. It's worth every single penny - buy the game!

Anyone else have something to add? :)

9. Dont use scripts
10. Click like mad in a saber lock
11. Bow before a duel (crouch, then look at the opponent, then at the floor)
12. When you see a guy named {DM}Lime-Light, bow extra long and dont go runnin away when I get your health low.

Don't install the freaking patch! Develop some skills and don't rely on the game to do your blocking work for you!

Actually the fanmod is better than 1.02 and 1.03.

Yeah, I am going 2 give it a try as soon as I get a chance. Or at least a ghoul2/sabertrace server.

But I'm still highly pissed about the whole spin-less yellow stance that was trashed on the client side of 1.02.

I wonder if there is a way to build a mod with the 1.03 code that would use the 1.02 client? I wish I could program.

You should ask that in the Fanmod's comment section.

You may be happily surprised how open-minded and willing the author is to make more options:

I suggest avoiding the GSD servers because they aren't nearly as good as the actual fanmod (which includes those options as well - but also includes more 1.02 stuff - such as high saber damage):

I haven't bought the game yet. Here in NY,were im visiting, the
prices are really jacked, so hopefully they will be down when
I get back to Fl.

I just have a few questions?

Can you turn your saber off? If not I want to learn to make a script for that because I played the game at a friends and I just
wanted my turn on my lightsaber whenever I wanted and not when
I pulled it out.

Can you have double sided Red lightsabres?

13. Do not grip someone and throw them over the side of a long fall.


14.Do not curse online(people get offended, but I dont)

15.Dont ever EVER leave your computer for any reason during a bout. If your kitten is choking, do not save it. it is not worth it. ;)

16.Ignore flamers.

17.Be my friend.


Blast! This is why I hate flying!

Grinnin guy says hello.

Why not? Isn't that the purpose of grip on the big maps with ledges?

That's like saying .. don't force pull anyone and hit them with a saber.

Gripping and tossing people is part of the game, not an exploit.

Force push or pull will easily get you out of a grip.

It's really fun if someone grips you and you start falling .. force pull them down with you. :p

Moves moves and forces can be easily countered and avoided - unlike sweep backstabs.

Turn saber off = hit saber key twice - it toggles it on or off.

The fan mod automatically turns on dual sabers in MP.

Avoid scripts if you can, most people consider them cheats.

P.S. Good thing to see people actually buying the game. :)

Geez .. *holds back flame*

1.03 is fine with the fanmod.

It allows you to have EAX HD - 3D sound in MP.

People who haven't tried the fanmod most likely will say don't install the 1.03 patch - ignorance is loud.

I'll just copy-paste something I wrote on another forum.

1) saber down = peace
2) typing / afk = peace
3) bowing = peace
4) don't spam, don't whore --> be versatile
5) do not assfight
6) have fun and let others have fun too
7) go easy on newbies
8) respect duels
9) bow when bowed at
10) do not deliberately manouver to get the backstab off
11) fight 'till the end one-on-one, do not run for powerups
12) do not use bactas when dueling
13) die like a man, not a whiner
14) give credit, when someone deserves it


Nice post Quietsith. :)

I like how when i express my opinion on a game im ignorant.

I enjoyed 1.02 to the point there im a fanatic about it. I never had any problems never complained. THen the bs hit the fan and for some stupid reason 1.03 came out.

and Yes i played this game since a week before the game came out i am not a n00b.
