Well, did you have a flag (playing CTF) or any objective-based object? Maybe you pressed the wrong button. No, it never happen to me.

Remember the jetpack needs time to recharge after each jump.

i know they need time to recharge. i was playing gc. and when i jumped and started falling to my death i just happened to notice that the fuel bar was not even there.... sooo yea..... and i dont think its a glitch or anything like that cause its happened on several maps. so either there is something abiut the jet packs i havnt learned yet or the game just hates me.

Worst that happened to me was trying to fly with Boba when he had the Kaminoan DNA sample...well, I'm sure the fish were happy.

Want a "really defective Jetpack"? Dark Trooper-jump somewhere and cut it off in mid leap. It acts like a really good super-hop if done right, but I can't help thinking that it makes the trooper think "What the hell? I'm falling!"


I am the definition of your defeat.

Same here. So, I decided to restart. So, I could go a bit farther with Boba. And whenever you have an objective-based object (flag) you can't use your force meter when force jumping or use your Jetpack.

I experienced the same thing last night. I could still fly without the bar though.

That happens when you hold the flag or a objective based item.

Not defective jet packs...

The jet pack will only activate after you jump. This means that if you simply walk off an edge to activate the pack you need to press jump twice. The first press "jumps" (cept you are already falling) and the second one activates the pack.

If u run and press jump once, u will fall. U have to push the jump button twice while standing still or moving(even sprinting)

I think he knows that. I am pretty sure he has used it before. But, who knows?

commander is right. no its not a onetime glitch it has happened multiple times to me. i ran i jumped. then hit "a" to jet pack. nothing happened. so i hit it agian. nothing happened. and if you hit the button fast it will still atleast start your jet pack and it didnt even dot hat.


and thus yoda said "whoop your ass i will, yes"

More immediate problem would be the Jetpack (forcejump) errors of force users, though I don't play heros enough to be sure of that...

Oh, before that fix the stupid award bubbles blocking your sight in zoomed mode please.

Maybe the jetpack isn't working because you are running? Has it ever worked when you where moving around at a standard speed?

well, I rarely have problems with jetpacks, and technically it works when you run jump, and it did for me ok, at least I am sure about it with Dark Troopers.

you know how ALL programs are 101010010101011001 and such? maybe your copy is missing a 0 or a 1, taht would explain everything... (alough the chances of this are the same as a ewok's surivial rate when you lock him in the cockpit of a a-wing...)

You would have to be missing a lot more than just a 0 or 1 to see any defect. Dropped valuse are expected and unavoidable, so there are things build in to check the bit values and correct them. If its a hot day, the ewok doesn't have much of a chance. The little thing is covered in fur and can't reach the air conditioning...

Well, the error have to be in really weird delicate spots to not be detected and corrected by the bit checks... most error would be in the music/graphics/movies anyways so chances are it may be things like an oddly corrected pixel that you won't even notice.

And, if ewoks can drive an AT-ST they can too with an a-wing, and ewok body is like 99% fur so a hairspray is polly more deadly to them. Now the survival rate of the backseat driver...
