People who love good melee fighting, just read below...my brother and I had a good time slamming each other to death earlier.
This mod also enables ALL
the old Jedi Outcast gametypes, so CTY, Holocron FFA, and JM servers are possible.
Note: this is NOT an admin mod. There will most likely not be any admin empowerment in this mod at any time. In future versions there may be admin helper commands, however, no 'slap' etc.
Excerpts from the readme:
OJP Enhanced is the distribution of the Open Jedi Project with gameplay changes. It also includes all the tweaks of the Basic package. If you want to try something new, try Enhanced. If you're diehard vanilla JKA only, use Basic.
0002 - Enhanced
ojp_sabermelee 1 - Controls the behavior of pressing the saber weapon button when the saber is already selected and turned on. See Melee System Overhaul
/togglesaber - Toggles the saber blade when player has the saber selected.
Melee Overhaul - Radically changed the melee combat behavior. Melee combat is now useable by all players in all gamemodes without cheats and includes working headlocks (Grapple + None). See OJP_readme.txt for details.
0001 - Basic
New mod configuration: OJP Basic now operates as a /GameData style mod. This means that you'll now have to load the mod using the Setup->Mods menu. Be sure to delete your old OJP Basic files.
