The JA Mod 1.3 is coming along great and is in the midst of the final test stage. There will be 2 versions released.

1) The standard .zip style
2) A Windows Installer

This will hopefully eliminate some of the install e-mails I get regarding the mod. But enough of that...Here are some things to look forward to in the new mod...

g_mAdminGun - Enables/Disables AdminGun system. (includes script)
Invisible Saber Bug fix.
New BanIP.dat file stores banned ip's. Full use of 1024 saved ips activated! (written by Lee Oattes)
Clients cannot use emotes during movements, specials, backattacks, and other saber attacks.
Spectator following/saber throw bug fixed.
New cVar g_mNameChange - Name changing time allowance, default is 1 minute.
madminaccess, mdenyadminaccess - commands for granting/denying admin access to clients.
Same name checking, auto renames when a client with same name is found.
ignore - ignore any chatting by a specific client.
and much much more....


Well, there is the sneak peek...This upgrade is going to be the biggest out of all previous versions of JA Mod and it is going to be well worth it. I'm working almost non stop to release this ASAP. (trying for this weekend) However, if not, definitly sometime next week...I will keep you posted.

working almost nonstop? Maybe you need to pull back a little bit and do some general surveying of the code before you start changing stuff. It would save you time in the long run.

sounds good. can you make jumping off walls while not on the ground an option that was one of my favorite features on jedi mod. if JA had it would be the best mod in the history of jk2(if it isn't allready).

I don't understand what you mean? Something wrong with my code? If thats the case, then hell yeah I been doing major code tweaks. That actually was the first thing I began to do before implementing it. It's going to be great...Optimism :)

You think you can fix the resurrection bug with terminator? If you killyourself then terminate yourself, you can resurrect. Also, is there anyway you can make dueling like it is in Omni Mod? (When you're in the duel, you can only see your opponent, everyone else goes invisible to you, people outside of the duel can walk through the duelers to avoid any interruptions at all) That would be really handy.

The resurrection bug has been fixed for this version, yes. As for the dueling code. Most of it is written into the clientside project in the jk2 source. Since I am keeping the mod serverside, that option cannot be available.
