Best duelling fun EVER!
Just played the most fun game of my life

about 10 of us on FFA bespin all went up to the pad and turned off our sabres and took turns duelling , if someone invaded our duel space we ganged up and took them down , we also built a jedi tower while we were waiting - all duels all the time , best fun ever

the demo is at

unfortunately i recorded the map before ffa_raven and let the file run on to the next map so you have to sit through 5 minutes of raven (began recording near the end) , but if you wanna take a look /this/ is what duelling is about

felony 04-02-2002 10:03 AM

Umm, no. Dueling is about No Force, sabers only, not being a childish spitwad.

Darksider 04-02-2002 10:07 AM

Thank you idiot , perhaps if youd care to watch it youd see (funnily enough) no force and sabres only! Shock freaking horror! as a group we turned on those who came to attack us while we were unarmed (sabers sheathed) . I dont care for your baseless moronic insults .

Hey darksider.

Remember me i was there aswell. It was a very fun server and if your interested in going there its blood_widows jedi academy.

Darksider 04-02-2002 10:46 AM

yeah ive heard of Blood Widow and id enjoy a duel, though im guessing its an american server and my ping would be abysmal , this one was on AusGamers

Ghoststalker 04-02-2002 10:56 AM

I live in the UK.

How do i play that movie darksider. Also do you remember me from server

Silent Wolf 04-02-2002 11:01 AM

I had a similar experience last night. I was playing on our clan server (props to necro) and after a few rounds we started doing some duels it was ffa garbage facility. After a while everyone was trying to duel me while about 6-7 people looked on with there lightsabers off. After winning all of the duels it turned into a training session. It was good fun and a couple of the guys learned some moves they didnt know. Things like this i belive are good for the community. Its nice to meet good people online. Usually you have to sift thru the weeds *cough felony*. :D

Darksider 04-02-2002 11:03 AM

extract it to your jk2 directory/gamedata/base/demos (if you havent recorded a demo yourself you need to create the demos directory) then goto multiplayer , play , play demo and select bespinduels and play

didnt recall seeing you on AusGamers - Are you sure it was the same one? i cant imagine youd get a good ping to australia

Ghoststalker 04-02-2002 11:07 AM

I was wrong. Its bloody strange though cause i was on a server and we made a tower 15 people high then had duel on the exact same platform. People were all watching and it was very merry. I will post the screenshots when i recieve them in my mail.

TheDarkSide 04-02-2002 11:10 AM

Sounds like fun
Most of the FFA servers I've been on have been pretty much overrun by people who would rather grip kill than duel. I love that section of the Bespin map!

PS Silent Wolf I sent you a PM about a LAN party in Dallas this weekend, let me know if u would be interested.


Ghoststalker 04-02-2002 11:25 AM

how do i record a movie dark sider. And when we get some good movies we all post them here.

By the way i like your fighting style darksider. Very simalar to mine.

seanconnery 04-02-2002 12:18 PM

*insert insane barrage of swear words here*

(*&(*^$%$ I wish I was there...

power_ed 04-02-2002 12:26 PM

That was sooo cool Darksider,
my kind of game exactly...

Very gentlemen like and noble, also.. u'r pretty darn good with that saber dude... :)

hope to be on a server like that some day.

[sico] 04-02-2002 12:59 PM

is that on ausgamers serv?

L'Equa Sinar 04-02-2002 03:11 PM

Sorry, i know someone already asked this, but how DO i record a demo? I have looked on a lt of topics for it but can't find it :(

Retro 04-02-2002 06:15 PM

The ping from US to AUS isn't that bad, I was there during the duels named Vega_Bond0. I got about 200 ping most of the time, wasn't that bad.

Darksider 04-02-2002 07:16 PM

hehe yeah i saw ya there , that was on AusGamers1 (AusGamers Jedi Knight 2 Server - 14 player ffa saber only)

to record a demo you use 2 commands

\g_synchronousClients 1
\record filename

the first enables recording of demos then use record and the filename you want

to stop recording a demo just use \stop

they will appear in your demos folder

seanconnery you quit out a few maps early :(

Retro 04-02-2002 08:31 PM

Darksider, I noticed that the only force enabled during that time was force jump, but earlier today I went back on, and they were all. I was wondering why that was, having only force jump and/or pull and push would be the most fun I could think of, it gets repetitive when you hurt someone and they simply heal right away.

Darksider 04-02-2002 08:40 PM

you sure it was ausgamers 1 and not 2? All enabled for everyone? or maybey someone had nabbed a force enlightenment .... i hope they havent changed it , force jump and saber only was brilliant

Retro 04-02-2002 08:52 PM

Well, I just connected to the "#2" AusGamers, and I can use Z and X and F, so I assume that it's using them all ;P

[edit] Oh! It's AusGamers JK2 without the #2 that has it, great! Back to gameing [/edit]

Rapio 04-02-2002 10:26 PM

thank you....
darksider u have made jk2 so much fun lol.
i only bought the game today, i played single player for abit then decided to jump online.
jumped into the first low pinging server i cud find and......
i got 0wned instantly. whilst tryin to have saber battles id get rocket launchered and blow to a billion pieces.
this put me off jk2 online (i know im fickle lol)
then i decided the venture onto the forums to see what other people thought and came across your thread.
downloaded the demo you put up then i realised jk2 cud be fun :D
so i hopped onto a server (luckily playing the same map as u were) and jumped onto a roof and asked them if they wanted to give this idea a go.
they all agreed, and i must say it was fantastic!
still doesnt hide the fact that i suck with the saber atm though lol.

seanconnery 04-02-2002 10:32 PM

I'll see you people online...I"m determined only to hang out there even though I get fairly crappy pings...:D

Darksider 04-03-2002 01:08 AM

Hope to see you there , ill be on again tonight hopefully ffa_bespin will roll around again (all my best stuff seems to happen on that map , its lucky! hehehe)

another duelling session would be just the thing to unwind after writing a report on bloody human resource management *grumbles*

bespin is the best map for it too , that pad was just made for dueling heheh

Darksider 04-03-2002 06:43 AM

tried to have another duelfest tonight on the same server

it must be a full moon or something because it was jam freaking packed with lamers :(

i put on the morgan katarn ghost model , i turned off my sabre , i stood still and on at least 15 seperate occasions people came up and killed me , most did it slowly - they knew i wasnt actively fighting and they did it anyway

i was really dissapointed , had such a great time last night and tonight i just got ganked

seanconnery 04-03-2002 06:55 AM

I was there earlier today...

Full to the brim with idiots talking in 1337speak and slashing at unarmed Jedi.

Strange given how it was in the demo, when almost everyone was a good sport.

Retro 04-03-2002 07:03 AM

I remember fighting with you Sean! :) And I had been trying to join the server for 10 minutes when I noticed dark was on, and then he left when I did get on hehe.

seanconnery 04-03-2002 07:05 AM

lol yeah annoying how he disappears ever so often.

Shaggy1984 04-03-2002 07:23 AM

What would this ausgamers lag be like for a 56 k modem ??(im from brisbane)

seanconnery 04-03-2002 07:30 AM

Try it out! It's fairly bad for me because I'm in Hong Kong but for a local 56k you should get about the same ping as I do, 350 or so, given your computer is of decent speed.

Darksider 04-03-2002 08:27 AM

in the end i opted for the kyles arms model (all the model except arms and saber are invisible) and with saber off its hard to see and land a hit so the people who were coming after unarmed standing still jedi (and there were ALOT of them) had a harder time , though when you duel the glow surrounds the whole model making you perfectly visible - very useful

then we got people *****ing about how it was lame . Yess , lamer than chain killing a person standing with saber retracted and standing still uhuh?

i only just left because a) it was on star destroyer so no good duellin places and b)packed with lamers , only me and 2 others were duellin

jedi master sentrix is a particularly large lamer , beat him in a duel and it was 'lucky' lose and he starts laughing , gets all angry if you brush him with a sabre when hes not ready but has no qualms about killing me when im still and unarmed :p

Darksider 04-03-2002 08:30 AM

well i got a bunch of duels with you an archangel at least retro ;) gotta love the kyles arms skin

Retro 04-03-2002 08:55 AM

Yes it was very fun! It's on temple now, we could try dueling there =P

Ah Boon 04-03-2002 09:36 AM

sounds like fun so, what s the server's name?

Retro 04-03-2002 09:42 AM

Dark, you missed some good fun on bespin again, there wen't as many, but me, avenger. and shurr3ax were all duking it out in duels :P Then 2 more people joined, then the map switched.:mad: :mad: :mad:

Elenkis 04-03-2002 10:56 AM

I got on the server earlier and it was full of pretty cool people. Lots of dueling going on and no lamers! Had some duels against Archangel and several others... Unfortunately I have a constant 500ms ping there (in the UK), which makes things very tough. Makes me kinda sad because that was the best server I've found yet, with nice people to duel with :(

Still had a lot of fun tho.

milliardoXP 04-03-2002 01:36 PM

hehehe I just played then as well :)
i remember seeing some of you there... the server name was Ausgamers 2 :atat:

nice playing with you guys it was a damn lot of fun :D

avenger_au 04-03-2002 01:43 PM

Far too much fun
Agreement here :)

That was a lot of fun..

lots of stuffing around with lightsabres.. I imagine this is what they do at the Jedi Academy :P

Damn. It's nearly 3am here.

Far too much fun.

seanconnery 04-03-2002 01:58 PM

Yep archangel retro avenger and ghoststalker were on there when I was and we had lotsa fun doing a jedi column ;) and climbing onto a high ledge and throwing sabers at people. I even killed someone! (I had 800+ ping...hehe)

EDIT: WTF? I'm a SITH probe droid??

Syphon 04-03-2002 02:08 PM

Where do I play with you guys?
Hey guys I was thinking about joining the online gaming portion of this rad game. Do you play on zone or something? I havent entered the multiplayer portion of the game yet so if you could let me know what I have to do get in on this fun!


seanconnery 04-03-2002 02:13 PM

Look for the Ausgamers #2 server. Quite a couple of us are on there frequently. :) Saber only and no active force powers (meaning no grip, drain or push whores):D

The server Alotofagina isn't all that bad, either, when the gun whores are away.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 02:15 PM.
