So what's a guy gotta do to get his file/news posted around here?

JKII.net hasn't seen a new model since January. MotF & Duelers has been released on JK2Files.com & I don't know about Razarace, but I have certainly done all that I can to get news posted about Duelers & get the file in the files section here at JKII.net - is there a news post about either mod? Is it even in the files section? Have all the people running JKII.net just got up & gone away?

I can understand people being busy & falling behind, but FFS no models since January?

MotF & Duelers have been uploaded at JK2Files.com, both mods are getting a few hundred downloads, yet there are no servers for either mod online - WTF is that?

JK2Files.com do not have as many limitations as JKII.net, but JKII.net recieves more traffic, so I am doing what I can to promote both mods because both are very good & yet no one is playing them. It's like winning a million dollars then throwing all out to sea - complete waste & to be honest, I am in awe about the whole thing.

People keep ranting about JA & I just do not see the glitter & glory. I tried playing it earlier today & the host changed the amount of damages inflicted which I think is totally lame. I also had other issues with the mod, like I would just be pushed away from a player like kicking was on, but it was a NF server - just not smooth gameplay.
Can JA...
*Fix the banning problem (permit 1024 IPs to be banned instead of 18)?
*Give you real tourny logic in duel mode (multi-duels, pairs up better players with better players, worse for worse)?
*Tell you the other players health after a duel (top of screen, not center - thats anoying)?
*Allow hilts & give you the best hilt pack around (including 5 reverse grip hilts with proper reversed saber)?
*Allow you to only see & hear your opponent while in a duel/private duel?
*Have the additional Jedi Council force rank?
*Admins commands that allow you to freeze, silence, teleport, rename, etc; etc. by either player name, player number, or by having them in your sights?
*Provide smooth gameplay FFS

I don't mean to rude, the JA coder is a nice guy & I don't mean to down his mod, all I am saying is there are alot of features we provide that NO ONE ELSE does & I'm furious. I work on the Duelers full project like it's my job & no one in the community even takes the time to really check basic out. It just makes doing the work so disheartening & I know Razorace puts in a bit of time with MotF as well.
I think if we can get a news post about it on JKII.net, that would help out with the lack of servers for both mods. I don't know about MotF, but Duelers is hosted at JK2Files.com because I couldn't even get a response back from the JKII.net staff.

What do we have to do to get news & files posted about our work?

I'm going to move this to the Jkii.net feeback forum. The administrators or super moderators are more likely to see it there.......they are the ones you need to ask.

Marker077, I'm totally with you on this. Jk2.net hasn't posted files in forever and it's messing up the community. They claim that it's due to the file server being screwed up but that's crap. The files server has only been down for a little while, not 2+ months. If it really has been down that long, it's long overdue time to change servers.

I tried to join the staff to get this crap fixed but they refuse to take anyone that doesn't has broadband.

PLUS, they STILL haven't fixed the subscription page bug on the forums. That's been here since the last server switch.

In my opinion, this is getting out of hand. If you're not willing to maintain your popular site, you need to get staff on board that are willing to do it for you, period. No stupid staff requirements, no beating around the bush.

And, yes, great mods are being totally ignored in face of the overwhelming horde of emote/admin/hilts out the ass "mods"/mods with "cool" names. It's disheartening to anyone that actually cares about making JK2 a better game.

Fortunately (at least for MotF), we've been making headway. People are FINALLY trying out MotF and enjoying it. Having a website and killer game features seems to be the way to counter BSmods. You'll notice that MotF has been in the Top 3 weekly downloads at jk2files.com

Anyway, my recommendation is to post news to jk2.net, and send your files to pcgamemods.com (great new site btw), jk2files.com, and massassi.net. I'd put the most effort into pcgamemods.com since they have a great site, post quickly, and don't give you crap.

P.S. Marker077, I don't normally cruise the Valley much anymore so please PM me when you want my involvement some thread in the future.

I think I will submit the file to other mod sites, it certaintly can't hurt.

For those mods & admins that are hopefully reading this, if you can't post our files can you at least do some news posts about our websites? We already have a ton of mirrors (1 more certaintly can't hurt), but I (& I think Razorace is looking for the same) am looking fornews posts. JK2Files.com is cool & all, it's my home as far as web forums, sites, & whatnot goes, but their news postings is a 1 sentance long link that people have to click to even view the news. it's not liek that here, when there's news, it's all over the front page.

What do we have to do to get some news coverage?

Nah, it's not a matter of having a central files/news site, it's the fact that the central files/news site has stalled. If they killed it (or fixed it), things would be fine. Right now, the community is in sort of a limo with the main site being screwed up as it is.

Well appearently none of the JKII.net staff have anything to say on this matter, which ironically does say something.

If anyone wants to continue this subject with *some staff* input, you can check this thread out at JK2Files.com.

To the staff members here, you may find this post rude, but certaintly no more rude than ignoring your members.
My problem isn't so much not getting news coverage here, it's the fact that none of the staff members are saying anything in the forums, or via email either.

Heh I wish I knew what was up here too. I've applied for staff and got no response. Meanwhile the files arent updated, etc. And now it looks like jediknightii.net's DNS is messed up again. I really wish I could help out here.

Bah, jk2files.com is Omnified (but better than it used to be) and post files like a week after you submit them. However, they're the most popular site after jk2.net

massassi.net is cool when it's up but it's mainly geared for jk1ers.

pcgamemods.com are the current best that I know of. They have a cool forum/comment system, post very quickly (less than 5 hours in my case) and create their own screenshots.
