Server Setup
I have set up a server for ffa on JK3. The Red Queen try it. My question is what are all the new map names has any one have them yet I want to set up maps from other MP game Maps not in FFA you can do it if you have the Map names. The snow in one Map is great think about that in FFA. I get cold just thinking about it. Defernt maps keeps the game fun. I find when you add maps others who dont have them just go to other servers and useing maps that are already in the game keeps them on the server in not bored. See you on my server or send me a email. I well respond to questions about server making. I have had lot of time doing it in JK2 Windows servers and Linux to.:cool:

humble48 09-19-2003 01:39 AM

Do you run a dedicated server on a seperate machine or do you run the server on the same client? I have two computers, one main and the other a server. I ran the dedicated server on the one PC and noticed that people join and then get immediately disconnected. I have a linksys firewall and i tried both port forwarding as well as placing the server in the DMZ and still no luck.

People are stating that they get illigite server and parse errors. But completely random. People last about 1 minute in the game before disconnected. If I connect though, I never get disconnected through the LAN.

Any thoughts?

Andy867 09-19-2003 03:00 AM

I cant even get that far.. at one point I was havign people play just fine, but now I cant even get the game to broadcast over the master server(s). I am using a Linksys Wireless router and have the dedicated pc set up as being hardwired to the router. I have gone through both the Port forwarding and Port trigger, but to no avail.

MasterAcad 09-19-2003 01:01 PM

Most needed info
Hi so much to cover so lets start at the first part and work our way down. Linksys Router if you have other brands it will be close but you must interpet the diferance as I use a Linksys Router as well. here we go. Go to the Advancced Tab then to Forwarding this is Port Forwarding put a name in the Customized Applications I put JK3 this info only so it does not do any thing by its self. Next under EXT.PORT add 28069 to 29071 you could just put 29069 to 29071 this allows 3 ports open the first one allows JK2 and JK3 ports open you use the one that works best for you. Then check the Protocal UDP this is the Protocal that JK3 use's add IP Address of your game server must be static IP so the IP address does not change. In windows must set a IP address manule no dhcp to put the IP address on the server only you can still use the Service for your workstations just not this server. Now push the Apply button you done on the Router part. Hop this helps if you stiil have issues test the server by hooking it straght up too the modem let it genarate a IP address or if on DSL put in the IP address given you to test and find out if the ISP is alowing you to run this service on the Cable or DSL line, some Cable and DSL companys are restricting this from happening. I think all broadband clients should be alowed to uses there lines as they like but that is getting off the subject.

Most needed info 2
Hi second part the server. I will post my server Info use it as is it work great for me and lots of hours spent makeing it. Me server is sound for a Version 1 with out the first SP made yet. Here it is.
First the Bat file that calls the program "jampDed.EXE" +set sv_pure 1 +set com_zoneMegs 32 +set com_hunkMegs 32 +set com_soundmegs 16 +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg This is very inportant all the +set need to be the way they are only +exec server.cfg can be changed as it is the Config file for the server. The other lines are setting that make the server Stable.
you can run this from a bat file or comand promt if you like to type in the info by hand. You can also uses this on linux by adding it to a pearl script file lots more to do for Linux get to that later. also copy the Base folder to the server from your workstation that you installed the game on as this is the files needed to run the server. You will also need the dedicacted Win32 server EXE file from Lucausfiles. I am running the retal version of the game with the dedicated server file if you are runnig beta there may be changes that have been made and your server may never be stable as retal verstion. With that all out of the way lets get back to the server recap we have a good base diretor in a dedicated server file and the Bat file made now the server.CFG file.

This file works great for me there are other setting that can be added and some can be taken out up to you have fun.

humble48 09-19-2003 03:49 PM

Good info. As for the second portion of ports, I would strongly suggest that you do not use a field from 28069 to 29071 UDP. You will essentially open 1003 ports. Better idea would be to create two seperate forwards. JK2 would be 28060 thru 28071 and JK3 would be 29060 thru 29071. At least that's only 22 ports rather than just over a thousand.

Also, doesn't it say on the web page of Lucas Arts that 28070 thru 28081 need to be inclusive (both UDP and TCP)?

I think the Lucas Art support page is incorrect, they state ports in the 28k range for JK3 but the text screen shows the ports to be in the 29k range.

Also, do you play on your dedicated server with the same machine or with another machine?

MasterAcad 09-19-2003 07:39 PM

Yes your right about the ports
Yes your right about the ports but I have only the server open on thoes ports and some people chose other ports that the one you have said I will haveto check on the TCP I know that UDP was last time and My server works on just UDP. I run seperat computers for server and Client I would say dont put any computer open to the outside that your not ready to have atacked so dont use your computer that has all your important stuff on it to run a server from. Again thank you for the corection on two many ports open I new it was to many but if your running a server just for this its not that big of a deal. Burn a cd with all the files to put your server back on line or better yet make a image of the hole server for fast restore if you have the means.:cool:

humble48 09-20-2003 12:28 AM

Good advice. After speaking with a Lucas Arts tech rep today, he informed me that the best thing to do was make a copy and use the copy to run the dedicated server. Right from the words of the tech. He also stated, that while those using illegal copies will get kicked (teaches those that buying games and supporting them leads to better games in the future) is normal.

As for the ports, those listed on the Lucas Arts page may be incorrect as they state the JK2 ports are in the 28k range. JK3 runs off of the 29k range. The page states JK3 are in the 28k range.

I will forward those ports stated and hopefully that will work with UDP only. I agree that I only use the dedicate PC for hosting games so opening up a 1000 ports is no problem, but it doesn't mean it's a good idea in the end.

Thanks for the advice man!

BTW - The tech support stated that he was going to look into the problem that I had and email with any information he can find out. He did state, however, that since the game is so new and the "leaked" version is out there, everyone with legit copies are suffering for their cheap actions.


Kurgan 09-20-2003 07:37 AM

This was a very helpful thread.. thanks to you I can now play MP again!

Dlink router
I have tried all of the above. I have also updated my firmware. But I have a Dlink 604 wireless router. I know that i cannot host a game with my xbox due to my pc being wireless. I was wondering if this could be my problem?

humble48 09-21-2003 01:38 AM

I still see the same problems as well. People are still being disconnected after they enter the game. I have placed my server in my LinkSys DMZ to see if that helps. The only other thing that I could possible do would be to remove the Linksys completely and go direct to the cable modem, but I will not go that route. Safety is more important.

I think that since the game is so new, patience might be the best answer and a future patch might resolve these issues. When I ran a JK2 server, I don't believe I started dedicating until after the second patch.

As for the wireless router configuration, technically, you should be able to connect via LAN to the server because you would essentially be on a LAN. However, I am not familiar with the configuration settings of a DLink. As long as the ports forward to the correct address, it should work.

I am sort of confused though...which machine are you attempting to run the dedicated server on (PC or XBox)? Also, does the XBox also connect wireless or is it direct?


aXoe 09-21-2003 01:00 PM

For all of us who do not have a firewall installed on our computer do we still use the same method, and or could you explain another one. I dont want to start making my own games, only just to enter them. My main problem is that i do not see any games at all when i press the refresh button. Help!!

friss and filth. Are you having the same problem im having with seeing servers on the list, or having a problem setting up a server. I cant even see any servers when i try to play never mind setting up a private server. :mad:

What is the godam command line in JEDI OUTCAST. Somebody help plz!!

Thornes 09-21-2003 05:15 PM

Anyone know how to make a non-dedicated server work on a DI-614+ D-Link router? I tried just opening the ports but it didn't work.

Andy867 09-21-2003 05:17 PM

Well, the manual also assumes that the average person doesn't know how to adjust the priority settings in the OS. So, what I do is when I load up the dedicated server file and have it execute, I then load up MP, and once its done loading up, I hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and right click on the jamp.exe file and kick the priority settings up to high, and I am able to easily play on my own servers or another without causing lag on my server or another.

|GG|Carl 09-21-2003 06:35 PM

Can just somebody tell me how to create a server which both I and other players can play on. I don't get this other things to work. CAUSE I'M STUPID! So, can anyone tell me the easiest way to create a server.


friss 09-21-2003 11:05 PM

Yeah, filth i had the same problem, but people are joining my server now :D i used the win32 dedicated server patch and people can join my server through game spy :cool:

MasterAcad, firts of all i'd like to say thanks for the server settings commands they've been a great help, but do you know how to change the difficulty level of the bots in the dedicated server?? and also have you noticed how you cant set up a siege game at all :confused: :confused:

Crow_Nest 09-22-2003 12:49 PM


If you're stupid, why not put the "I'm with stupid" thing?

MasterAcad 09-22-2003 04:54 PM

Several new questions
Hi serveral new questions hear I will try to answer them. Please if any one finds I have miss stated any info please corect me as I am not perfect. First several people have asked about more than one kind of server. I prefer the dedactaed server with ether windows dedecated server file to run the server or Linux dedecated sever file on a seperat server altogether. You can run the install on a seperat server and pick advaced setting when creating a server in the menu and pick dedecated server and other options this is also the easy way for people that dont like haveing lots of controle to your server setup. If you dont pick the dedecated server option you have a hole diferent kind of server one the doesnt avertise its self to the server comunity this is for people who want to call there frends and say heres my server IP address lets play with out other people knowing we have a server. There are mulitable server types. If you want answers to questions about a server set up I will need to know what your wanting the server to do for you in the end result and what your restrictions are the will reduce your options are. Please if any one can answer questions on Xbox setups go for it as I have no Xbox and have no way of knowing what you will need to do to make a server on a Xbox. My full info on Xbox is it runs on Ethernet the same way as windows so ports it requires need to be opened and a conection to the network suplied by nic card built in or added. Some Xbox systems are wireless as the use gatway that plug into the nic on the Xbox and the Gatway is a Wi Fi unit to conect it to the network. Microsoft is now making its own gatway for this now I say the ad a few days a go other venders make the Gatway as well. Second point to bring up all the dedecated server type's have Issues on crashing servers right now JK3 is in real bad need of a Service Pacth for the dedecated servers as Windows and Linux will both stall in shut down. I am testing the second Linux 1.01 file yo see if it is better ley you know how it goes later. Please if your server well not advertice to the master server with the Info from above you have to choices. Put your server straght on the Modem to test only dont leave it there just test to see if your ISP will let you run a server. Second wait for a update the choice is yours dont endanger your critical information this way Thats why I say only use a computer for this that is not used for any other perpuse. Remember we are only a few days into the new release of the game and the master server is being adjusted as much as we are adjusting our setting for it. Please forgive my spell as I rushed and I am not a great speller in the first place.

SIEGE Settings
Hi I was asked about SIEGE settings this is a new game for JK and looks fun I have not played it yet. Hear are the settings for Siege.

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
set g_gametype 7
set g_autoMapCycle 1
map mp/siege_desert

This is the simple way to set it up.
But do I use the simple way no I must always do things the hard way how about you?
hear are my settings for Siege the more complex way.

set d1 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_desert ; set nextmap
vstr d2"
set d2 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_hoth ; set nextmap vstr d3"
set d3 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_korriban ; set nextmap vstr d1"
// start the first map
vstr d1

Still not done you can add difernet setting per map this way by add set comands in each line like this.

set d1 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_desert ; set g_speed "275"; set nextmap vstr d2"
set d2 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_hoth ; set g_speed "300"; set nextmap vstr d3"
set d3 "set g_gametype 7; map mp/siege_korriban ; set g_speed "250"; set nextmap vstr d1"
// start the first map
vstr d1

the above added settings are for g_speed settings per map will change speed in each map as listed Cool you can add as many settings as you want per map this way tell me you have no controle in your server invirement now. Try setting your g_saberDamageScale per map Saber Damage is just what it sounds like you controle the amount of sever saber damage you want. And how about the g_weaponDisable and the g_forcePowerDisable camands if you think certain maps are best used with certain wepons are force powers set them and have fun the amount of changes is up to you. yes there are other settings needed for differant game types but I hope this has opened up some eyes as to what can be done. Again forgive any miss spelled words.

MasterAcad 09-22-2003 05:35 PM

Running the server and client on the same computer
you need to have your dedicated server on a different port, than your Jedi Knight 3 client so in the command line of your shortcut it would look like the following :

"C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\jampDed.exe" +set net_port 29071 +exec server.cfg

see the +set net_port I changed it to 29071 cuz JK3 is using 29070 by default, this is why you cant see any servers while yours is up. There you go, have fun.. I cant get to see it listed tho but people are connected to it.. I can connect to my server too, to play with others.. I just cant see it into the free for all listing.... bah. needs a patch.. master server is screwed up.

I did not write the artical above and could not find a name of the person that left it but it is very good and to the point about what says the only addition I will add is copy your base director to another location as several file are used by both server and client and it well cause a crash if you dont also make sure the server port is open as it has been changed to 29071 from 29070. You no longer have to forward 29070 if you change it to 29071. Thanks to the person who did the artical that I have now posted for you.

|GG|Carl 09-22-2003 06:04 PM

As I said before, I'm kinda stupid, so I would like someone to tell me the easiest way to create a server. I mean, does an online server have to be dedicated? Can I just create a normal server, which people joins???


MasterAcad 09-22-2003 06:17 PM

Adding Bots
Hi I have been asked for the info of adding Bots to a server. in yor server.cfg file add set bot_enable 1 then add the line set bot_minplayers x the disired amount of bots. The bots will go away as human players come into the server. The bots with this setting are random and the level of play is random as well. For the server admin that likes controle this is the set up you want.
In the server.cfg file have the line.

exec botfile.cfg

in the botfile.cfg have this.

seta bot_enable "1"
seta bot_minplayers "x" // x is where the amount of bots you need in the game.
seta bot_nochat "0" // 0 turn chat on 1 turns chat off.
seta bot_fastchat "1" // 1 on 0 off.
seta bot_challenge "1"
seta bot_groundonly "1"
seta bot_thinktime "100"

//this add's the bot's
addbot Reborn 3 RED 0 Reborn
addbot Luke 3 BLUE 0 Luke
// the name of the bots well vary must use the corect name or the bot well not be in the game. 3 is for the level you want the bot to attack at. Red or Blue is the team color you want the bot on. 0 is the Ping level you want the bot to work at Have fun with bots now.

Jedi group
if any of you would like to have a place for input to my server RED QUEEN I have a Jedi group set up for this. its address is

Hope to see you there I will take input as to how to set up the server for others to play on and maybe even have a contest of best FFA or CTF or Duel maybe all the above. This Group will alow for the signing up of the players to compet. We can have a lot of fun go to the Jedi Group site and give me your feed back as to what you would like to do.:atat:

|GG|Carl 09-22-2003 07:40 PM

I've done as you said, [nWo] Filth. And now I can at least create a dedicated server, and join it myself.

But, I've tried to create a server lots of times now, but... as soon as anyone joins(me or someone else), the server goes mad and sends about 1000000000 copies of this message:

:confused: HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS???

NOTE: This problem is actally quite similar to the problems I had with JO 1.04:(

dyehead 09-22-2003 10:04 PM

I set up a server, but I'd still like a few more tips on tweaking...

For 1, How do I ban someone easily?

2. I tried changing maps once with /rcon map mp/ctf1 and it changed maps, then immediately crashed.

3. Is someone working on writing an admin mod for this?

4. Where can I get a full list of all config options, rcon commands?

The IP for my server is if anyone is interested in playing there, it's a Sabers Only CTF server with pickups disabled, based out of Los Angeles running on a beefy server, with a beefy connection.

// Server Config
seta sv_hostname "^^3 Sabers Only CTF"
seta g_motd "Please be respectful or leave. ^3Forums at"
rconpassword "xxx"

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
seta g_gametype 8 //CTF Mode
seta sv_privateClients "2" //2 reserve slots, admins need to play too!
sv_privatePassword "xxxxx" //the password for the reserve slots (I love this)
seta sv_maxclients "22"//22 max slots, only 20 are visible, the other 2 are reserved
seta sv_maxPing "200" //prevents laggers
seta g_inactivity 0
sv_maxRate 10000
set g_allowvote 0 //Voting disabled
set timelimit 20 //20 minute time limit
set capturelimit 5 //max capture the flag limit of 5
set g_autoMapCycle 1 //set to cycle through maps
g_weaponDisable "65531" //sabers only
seta disable_item_shield_sm_instant "1" //disables small sheield boosters
seta disable_item_medpak_instant "1" //disables medpaks
seta disable_ammo_thermal "1" //disables thermal detonators
seta disable_ammo_blaster "1" //disables blaster ammo
seta disable_ammo_metallic_bolts "1" //disables metallic bolt ammo
seta disable_ammo_powercell "1" //disables powercell ammo
seta disable_ammo_rockets "1" //disables rocket ammo
seta g_dismember "100" //dismemberment enabled
map mp/ctf4 //what map to start with

Comments and questions are welcome, and you're welcome to visit our forums at and click on the Jedi Academy section. I will soon put up a website with hopefully my own forums separate from the main clan forums.

Need a little help here --

My server dissapears and reappears on the master list all the time, it will go for hours showing up, then dissapear for hours. why is this? Someone help please.

The server is set to pure 1 and dedicated 2.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

TMG 09-23-2003 06:38 PM


Nothing is disabled if set to zero. All force powers are disabled if set to 262143. The number is the total of a bitfield with 15 bits, each bit representing a force power.
strange i downt understand that :confused:

i want disable all powers but jump, saber block and fight (not throw) avaliable

i hope for some help and the right number/code

thx :)

Thanks to you, [nWo] Filth! I also discovered that my virus program didn't let JA out on the internet, but as soon as I had changed that, It worked fine! So, thanks again, Everybody!

EDIT: :doh: I now found a new problem... Very many people joins my server, but all the people that I know, for exmple my classmates, can't see my server! What to do?

Andy867 09-25-2003 10:02 AM

Are you trying to run a server as well as play in one? or possibly are you not opening up the UDP ports like 29071-29079 *I always leave 29070 closed so that I can still play games while hosting one.

I can create a server, and people joins it, the problem is that my friends can't see it.:(

Just look at the link i posted above, I'm not the only one!

friss 09-25-2003 05:37 PM

I'm having the same problem as most, ive set up a dedicated server, which i and my friends can join ok. It shown up in gamespy for a few days then it vanished :confused: :confused: Im thinking maybe there is a command to get your server to show up in lists like gs and the main ingame server list. Ive seen the Red Queen Server on the list in gamespy (Master Acad's Server), but mine wont appear :confused: :confused: :confused:
I hope Raven release a patch to sort out the server & bot route problems because jk3's a great game...i'd hate to see fail because of these minor things :(

worm777 09-25-2003 07:56 PM

Disabling force Powers.
Did not see that posted here so I figured I would post it.

There is a force calculator at the following website that lists all the force powers. All you do is check the force powers you want disabled and it will give you the number to put behind your g_ForcePowerDisable variable in your config. It says outcast on the top of the web page but it works the same for Jedi Academy.

server trouble
OK, I am trying to run a server for my clan, but it isnt working :(. When I run the server, at one point it says this a whole bunch:
Then says hitch warning and some number at the bottom. Also when I goto find my server I have to look under local(not sure if that is how it should be or not) and at the end of the name of it UDP is added..... Here is my server.cfg::

// Server Config
seta sv_hostname "^3JS Clan Server"

Command line options explained
Number one right off the bat, this information applies ONLY to the legit version of the game. I know nothing about the betas or warez versions, I own it. If you are getting folder or other type errors, I can not help you, you need to buy the game.

There are just a couple of points I want to clear up for everyone. The information I post here and the other information I already knew about hosting dedicated servers for JO and JA will soon be in a server config guide I am writing, which will eventually be posted on my web site, along with my configuration guide for JO, and my mod setup guide for JO, and Lee's Oattes sabering guide that are already there. Also, on my web site I have a server status screen, which requires IE and a small plugin which is available on the site. If any of you want me to include your server on my page, just email me the ip and I'll throw it in the list. It is easy on that page to see multiple servers on one page, and at this time I have listed all favorite servers. It is updated with new servers as I get them.
Also, I will help anyone write a server.cfg file, and email you examples, if you email me.

If anyone would like to help me write the server config guide, email me your additions, and I will be sure to give you credit. After all, I don't know everything!

With that in mind, here is my email:, and my web site: Inskipp's Jedi Knight Training Center Please don't send deragatory comments, I know it leaves a lot to be desired, after all it's only my first website.

Ok, with that out of the way, I will explain the command line options I use in my shortcut. These also work similarily in JO, Quake 3, Elite Force 1, Return to Castle Wolfenstien. Just remember to make your initial shortcut to the multiplayer version of the game, if there is one. (ie. Quake 3 has only one .exe)

Now I am using windows, and the actual .exe from the game. I didn't bother with the "dedicated" versions that have been released, they are not necessary if you are using windows.

Here is my shortcut to run a server:

..\Jedi Academy\GameData\jamp.exe" +set net_port 29071 +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg

1st: +set net_port #
This one specifies the internet port that the server runs on. Before JA, this didn't need to be changed, because the client always would just use the next available port. In other games, it wouldn't be needed. So now we have to use seperate shortcuts to run a server or the game, making sure they are not on the same port.

2nd +set dedicated 2
This makes a dedicated server that is available both locally, and online. (If your firewall lets it through ). Now, and this is important, I have NEVER been able to see my local servers in the internet list. I always had to look in local. But just because you can't see it, it doesn't mean no one else can. Have someone check, or just wait until someone connects. Or email me your server ip and I'll add it to my status page, and you'll be able to tell if its working at a glance.

3rd +exec server.cfg
Exec means execute, and all you are doing is executing the specified file, in this case, server.cfg. It can be any file, as long as it is in your base folder. It is important to have a command that actually starts the server at the end of the file, if you don't, the server will not actually start. In my example it is vstr m1. But a simple 'map mp/ffa1' would also start the server.

There are others, like +set password ######, which sets the password to get on if its private, and +connect (ip), which connects you automatically to the specified ip, and +set fs_game (gamefolder), which allows you to run mods the right way (more detail in my mod config guide), and many others. So basically, when I play I have a shortcut that looks like this: /jamp.exe" +set net_port 29071 +set password mypassword +connect Easy as pie.

Well I hope this clears things up for those of you still having trouble, and remember, in my personal experience, I can NEVER see my own servers in the internet list, I must look under local. It may have to do with my firewall, I don't know.

Look forward to my server config guide soon, heck, this post will be half of it. But I will explain the server commands I use as well.

Please correct me if I have posted anything incorrect, or if you wish to add something. Below is an example server.cfg, which should be in your base folder.

//start of server.cfg
//my server config
seta g_dismember "100"
seta g_allowVote "1"
seta g_filterBan "1"
seta g_banIPs ""
seta g_log "myserverlog.log"

//change the above to however many bots you want
//they will be kicked off as each person joins

set m1 "map mp/duel1 ; set nextmap vstr m2"
set m2 "map mp/duel2 ; set nextmap vstr m3"
set m3 "map mp/duel3 ; set nextmap vstr m4"
set m4 "map mp/duel4 ; set nextmap vstr m5"
set m5 "map mp/duel5 ; set nextmap vstr m6"
set m6 "map mp/duel7 ; set nextmap vstr m7"
set m7 "map mp/duel8 ; set nextmap vstr m8"
set m8 "map mp/duel10 ; set nextmap vstr m9"
set m9 "map mp/ffa2 ; set nextmap vstr m10"
set m10 "map mp/ffa3 ; set nextmap vstr m11"
set m11 "map mp/ffa4 ; set nextmap vstr m12"
set m12 "map mp/ffa5 ; set nextmap vstr m1"

vstr m1
//starts the server

//end of file

And that's it, good luck running a server, and I'll see you online!Inskipp's Jedi Knight Training Center
