Exclamation Jedi Outcast: 1.04 Server Fixes!

This from Kenn @ Raven

Jedi Outcast 1.04 Dedicated Server Issues:

A number of people have reported issues with the new 1.04 dedicated servers for Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast showing up as 1.03 in the server browsers after successful patching and updating. The reason for this is likely that server admins are shutting down their servers, patching them to 1.04 and re-launching them before the server times out with the master server. When the server starts up again, the master server sends its heartbeat to the game server, thinks itís still up from before and keeps it running as 1.03.

The best solution to this problem is to take down your server and leave it down for 10 minutes (5 is the timeout) after you patch it before launching it again. This allows the master server to clear the old server info from its cache, send a new heartbeat to the game server and re-list it as 1.04.

The other common issues that people are reporting relate to people not having the assets5.pk3 in their base directories and replacing their old executables with the new ones. You MUST install the 1.04 client patch BEFORE you install the dedicated server updates.

Those two fixes should solve most of the pending issues with 1.04 dedicated server utils for Jedi Outcast.
