Has anyone found a kill tracker for JA?

I know the JA community could use one and quite frankly I want one too so has anyone found one... or is one in the making?

Thanks for the help,

Nope... Be sure to contact the makers like Mau'Dae or what his/hers name was, and tell him/her to do a JA version.

Expect that people are gonna tell you that it's a part of the ''honor code'' and that it is just lame and stupid.

I never used it, but I will for JA!

Mau'Dae was on Chop Shop #1 a week or so ago testing his new Jedi Academy killtracker, so I expect that (unfortunately) it will be available soon. I sent him an email begging him to leave the spam-generating feature out of it. No one has a problem will a program that silently keeps statistics of your kills and kill ratios, etc. But the incessant spamming of "so and so, you are the 34 person I have killed, 3 kills have come from you" (or the more juvenile variations like "so and so you are the 40 bitch I have ass raped") was very annoying in Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, and will be even worse in JA, since the chat is closer to the center of the screen.

My JK2 servers have a MOTD that every player sees as they join the server that says "KILLTRACKERS OFF !KTOFF" in bright red letters. Server rule. My Jedi Academy servers will have the same rule after the killtracker comes out. And we all know what should happen to players who repeatedly disregard\ignore\disobey that server's rules.

After many months of watching thousands of players on my four servers, I have found that the best players, the ones who win consistently, don't use killtrackers. Using a killtracker in my experience is like waving a red flag that says "I am a mediocre player with low self-esteem, and spamming a message with each and every one of my infrequent kills compensates for the fact that I never win".

I know Mau'Dae pretty well. I'll ask him to take off the spamming stats next time we talk. It gets to be pretty annoying.

Personnaly, I like KA, It's a good way to judge your progress as your skill increases. Why not make an option for JA to either annouce statements/stats or just either echo them or just keep count and not say anything to anyone.

I am curious, what is your estimate of the percentage of killtracker users who would use a silent option if it was available (I don't use a killtracker, but my understanding is that it already still counts kills even when not spamming), and what percentage will spam some variation of "noob, you suck! you are the 23 bitch I have assraped, I have pwned you 2 times"?

I have bots that say this after kills:

<playername>, you are the 672,093,747 person I have killed 943,224 kills have come from you.

Some players say "that bot has a killtracker! kewl! where can I get one?"

I really only used use Kill tracker to allow for better command of Winamp and minimizing JO. I'm all for Kill Tracker.

BTW, I usually turn off the Auto Messages in KT.

I really don't think it's possible for anyone to give a reasonable estimate on who would use KT for just tracking or for mindless spamming. I can just speak for my self and my fellow clan members, of whom I duel with and see how they use this feature. Wish I could give you an awnser, sorry.

It was a rhetorical question. Yes, a few people use it silently, or use it to control Winamp (only works with older versions, and can't you do it any other way?) or to minimize the game (I always run it in a window anyway, so I can just ALT-TAB out of it, or press the Windows key to regain my mouse pointer, then Minimize it like any other window. Also makes it easy to switch to Winamp or any other media player. Don't need a killtracker for those functions).

To answer my own question, in my experience the vast majority of killtracker users use it to generate annoying spam.

By the way, the new killtracker for Jedi Academy is out (find it yourselves, killtracker users, I'm not going to help you) and it has a !silent option. Killtracker spammers, er users I mean, please do everyone a favor and use it. It will still keep track of every one of your precious and important kills.

Well, I just think that all the noobs with low slef esteem like AMadala said would NOT silence their kts, but I know I would. Think about it, you could use it anywhere, and it wouldn't mess up anything. I think though you can just make it say nothing can't you? I've never really tried that after all I'm one of those low-self-esteem noobs No, but I would like this silencing thing to keep track of your whole progress through the game, SP I know that might be impossible but also for SP, that would be cool also.

Something I noticed too, when you have KT on and you're running a server it clears all of the admin cmds that you type in it plus it erases all that ppl say to you, if it wouldn't erase I would also use it even more.

what should happen is that the KT should check the motd to see if it contains a keyword, say, NOKT or something, and not let the spam feature be enabled on that server. That way, you don't have to mess with people ignoring server rules about it, and if you want spam, then just leave out the NOKT.

Nopes, not yet. The author of the KT for jk2 said he'll make 1 for JA.

Ditto.

In fact, really the only thing that will get someone kick/banned off my server is how they conduct themselves in chat. Excessive whining, complaining, insulting/abusive language is NOT welcome. I also request that guests do not attempt to recruit clan memberships.

On a semi-related note, I witnessed the oddest thing the other day... someone was using my server to spam advertisements. Actually TWO people. One was spamming an ad for some kind of saber/hilt mod (with a lengthy statement of how great it is, etc. etc.) and the other was posting the web address for scifi.com.

I asked them politely to knock off the ads and they complied, so it didn't develop into a problem, but that certainly has to be one of the more bizarre things I've seen in a while.


My 24/7 dedicated Jedi Academy server: 66.98.177.21

Jedi vs. Merc, Melee enabled, voting disabled, high bandwidth Multiple OC-3 Connection
Lowered sabers required to use offensive Force powers
The expressions "LAMER" or "LAMING" are NOT recognized
All kills are considered fair & legal (including chat-kills & "saber-down" kills)
Abusive language, Complaining & Kill Trackers NOT Welcome

It's out. I forgot the website, but search Google for Mau'Dae and you'll find it. I actually had it 2 days ago, but I had to reinstall my computer.

And on, and on, etc it goes. I agree, the kill tracker is a pretty silly, spammy and pathetic deal because people use it to broadcast pointless statistics (really taunts) showing how "good" they are.

That little sample was just annoying, but if people get in the habit of using them on my server, I may decide to ban them altogether.

If you think that's bad, you should see what it's like on a server with 20 people if several of them have spamspawners, er killtrackers. On one of my JK2 servers we have duel_temple and with 15-20 people it's not unusual to have 600-1100 kills in 16 minutes. With those damn killtrackers it's a non-stop spamfest.

I have an automated message on my Jedi Academy servers that says "Killtracker users, silence them with !silent or !ktoff. It will still count kills. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED!"

Kurgan, if you read your server logfiles as I do to see what happened when you wren't there, may I suggest you use Quake Chat by Aphextwin of Jedi Runner fame? http://www.gamerunners.com/modules.p...p=getit&lid=14
It filters out all but the chat, making it easier to read the logfile. Unfortunately, killtracker spam is included in chat, so you will see that too. I have been working with Aphextwin on an improved version called Jedi Chat that filters out most killtracker spam. He will get back to it when Jedi Academy Runner is perfected.

That's interesting... Do you mean the server broadcasts a meesage every now and then or just broadcasts it at every map change?

If it broadcasts every now and then, I'd be interested in knowing how you accomplished it, it would be handy for my server as well.

Aphextwin, the same guy who made Jedi Runner and Quake Chat mentioned above also made Server Messaging. Get it at http://www.gamerunners.com here: http://www.gamerunners.com/modules.p...op=getit&lid=9

Amidala, U know I spen much time on your Chop Shop servers. I have come to find that one player (Temporal Eclipse) uses the Mau'Dae JA KT, He silences it but then spams music. At one time, I had a kill tracker on her jk2 servers and I had one simple little message: 500 kills. All my message was was the number of kills. Now that is not a lot of spam unless u do a lot of owning which I didnt do.



Check out the Jedi Assault Team(-=JAT=-) at www.jediassualtteam.com Link is mispelled but url works.
