I'd like to see you create your own mod, shock ~ unnamed, instead of bashing other peoples work. If VA Mod and JA Mod are such crap, why are they the most world-wide used mod? I've got only two words for you and it isnt happy birthday

SparkDog: You can either download Vulcanus Adimin Mod, Jedi Academy Mod, or I think Omnimod has their own version of the empower command. When you log in as an admin, you can use the amempower <yourname> command to empower yourself.

world-wide used mod? You Wish
VA/JA Mod is not the Most Used Mod its just the Most used Mod thats Server Side,but how many of those are there *counts* Oh Two! The Mod is quite cheap IMO I mean yeah it allows server admins to control their servers using user-friendly admin commands,but most clans/server admins only use it to abuse power. Omnimod didnt have an empower command neither only two mods have cause its a really cheap command and everyone knows it

Yes very unfair just a way for Hosts/Admins to actually be able to get kills while using that immune to force,infinite force,2x damage crap.

Don't need to make one, perfectly happy with base JK2.

Why I dislike those mods:

Admin punishment functions.

These are noting more than petty little ego boosts for frustrated noob admins.

And don't give me any pre written response about "They are there to deal with lamers".

Just like that empowerment garbage everyone is complaining about, these functions are abused as commonly and no differently than an aimbot in a game of Counter-Strike.

I run a server in this game and have run them in others.
If I have a problem with a player I kick them.

If it continues I ban them.

Putting people to sleep, slapping them this is all petty self gratification for frustrated noobs who want punish players who actually *play JK2.

And as for popularity?
I've said it before and I'll say it again.
99.9% of the people in this game today don't even play it.
They just stand around doing fruity little emotes and get their little Jedi panties in a bunch the second they encounter a person who actually wants to *play JK2.

So of course your mod is popular, it caters to non game playing noobs and that is what the vast majority of JK 2 players are at this point in the duration of the game.

See?

As I said, your mod is simply a means to fulfill petty revenge fantasies and a way to vent frustration for sub par players and admins.

Say, when you are waiting to duel someone on the Bespin pad while he's in another duel. Your standing there watching with your saber down and someone who has mind trick on dfa`s on ya then runs away and mid tircks again and gets someone else. Thats lame. When you are chatting and someone kills you, lame. There are accidents when poeple attack on accident. I dont punish people right away. i give them fair verbal warnings first, before I sleep them, then kick. I dont use empower much. I mostly use it when me and some guild members want to just fool around. But I unempower all the time before a duel. And when I amterminator, I do it to everyone and we all go at it. So I dont abuse these admin features.

-E

PS: Of course everyone has these on opinion and I`m alright with that.

Nope doesnt say anything about attacking while saber is down or chatbox is up.....play the game dont just stand there thats your fault for being "lame" If you want to Duel Join a Dueling Server (Gametypeuel)
Doint Join a FFA server and wait in line for your turn to duel on the pad in Bespin. Most people say Bespin Pad is the place to Duel I say you are wrong...on bespin FFA I force speed from Big Shield pickup area to pad turn speed off in mid-jump when I land I grab the nearest Guy and throw his Arse off the Pad...and its his fault for being that close to an edge...I mean he obviously must have wanted to jump or something why else fight so close to a cliff. FFA=Free for All aka Anything Goes Duel: Take Turns Dueling or some crap.

You know, I find that I must agree with Ronin and shock

While I do respect VAM and JA, I must say that these mods have greatly hurt the community. A good server admin does not need more than kick and ban functions. Granted, some would say "but I do not want to kick him, I just want to show him that he should play by the rules", however the commands are rarely used to do so, rather they are used when a player "breaks the saber code", which should never have existed in the first place.

None of these rules are written in MotD, you just see "No Laming", where Laming = anything, from just being good and killing the admin, to not complying to the yet again UNWRITTEN rules and playing the gametype as it was supposed to be playing. I am sure you will not see a Quake3 player complaining that this "lamer" used Railgun to kill him when he was carelessly spamming Rockets on another guy. However JK2 is implied to be the "Star Wars" game, thus people want to follow the "code of honor", and forget that essentially, JK2 is Quake3 with lightsabers. At least in this implementation of it.

Admin mod is good in the right hands. However nowadays 90% of the admins are "left-handed". And no, unlike you most think, kicking, DFA and even Backstab spam is not lame. Yes, it could be considered unfair to use because it's easy to execute and deadly at the same time, but THIS is how the game was done, and you would have to live with it...

Also, the current trend of "RPG" gaming sickens me. That's why when I ask for feedback on my mods I get the "we would like more emotes to enrich our RPG experience". Understand that to enable a particular emote, all is needed is 3 lines of code. Understand that all these emotes are just animations from the game that are unused in MP. Understand that for the mod developer, adding them means nothing of value. But, that's how the good mods die. Rarely you will see a SoS (Style over Substance) server. Instead you will see:

- VAM with emotes and overpowered admin commands
- JM (which is seen less, thanks to relative lack of these features and of course to the spinoffs that generated as a result of releasing the code)
- Spinoff of JM, usually OmniMOD or JediPlus with MORE emotes and useless overpowered admin commands
- JA, being a spinoff of VAM, providing even MORE relatively useless admin commands and even more emotes

See the trend? Emotes and Admin commands. Features that make people feel "powerful" and at the same time "True roleplayers". Features that are now despised by quite a bit of people in the actual modding community.


Note: this probably has repeated ideas, this was written in a messy way and I am in no way to be held responsible for any misintepretation of the above. However the base idea is clear - people NEED to move on. People should forget about useless features. People should PLAY the game, not RUIN the game and scare new people off (which at the moment is nicely done).

Why on earth do people set up FFA servers just so they can duel? Why don't they set up duel servers? You have to realize, when people join FFA servers, they expect to play FFA games.

And I don't get this concept of "lame" that many people have. Really, the game itself is what should be enforcing the rules. Those should be the only rules that matter. IMO, saber down = peace is the worst thing that ever happened to this game.

Mind trick and then DFA, I'll have to remember that

The JA Mod was written with the needs of the Jedi Academy in mind. It suits our needs quite well, in fact. Zerocool figured other people could use these features so he released it to the community. If you don't like then mod then please don't play on any JA Mod servers. It's that simple.

The admin commands like empower, punish, etc are quite useful in the hands of a mature server admin. Don't blame the mod if a lame admin decides to abuse these commands.

How about instead of being all negative and bashing someone's hard work you give a little constructive criticism. All the mindless flaming, as is evident in this thread is what hurts the community, not a user's choice of server mods.

Well if the mod is properly used by 3 out of 479 admins, great.

But the fact remains the overwhelming majority of servers running these mods simply use the admin functions no differently than client side hacks.

They only use them to annoy and ridicule players and to gain an advantage in combat.

I truly get numerous e-mails a day, whether its tech support or ideas from others that they see would be "cool" in the next version. I simply tried to do whatever the community wanted and so far I received some pretty good feedback on obtaining most of those requests. Now is that really such a bad thing? What they do with the mod is obviously up to them.

However, if you've ever played on a server where they're are some decently mannered people that dont kill you when your trying to talk to someone aboiut something than you will see that the admin commands are not there to only punish the non admins. Sometimes we use them for fun. Training exercises against an empowered client is a very good example on the kind of cool things we do in the JA.

If you dont like the server then don't play there. Better yet.. post it's IP so the rest of us know this particular suerver sucks.

Post the IP lol seriously who keeps a notebook full of IPs with lamers and admin abusers. There is no such thing as a mature Admin....at least Ive never seen one before. No offense to your "hard work" (which was just adding a few minor addons to someone elses code) But your mod is never used in the right way. People who cant win use it and when you kill them they abuse admin powers. If you want suggestions for the next version make it so there are no admin commands and just a MOTD with the Rules of the server and if someone doesnt follow rules you can use the /amkick command (the only real wworthy admin command)

No offense to anyone, this is not directed towards any specific person but just a generalization.

That said, it never ceases to amaze me just how far out of touch the people who post here are with the vast majority of public JK2 gaming.

Maybe it’s the way people tend to self-isolate themselves on one to two servers, but a lot of you are clueless to say the least.

Post the IP of “lamer admin” servers?

How about this:

Filter out all the admin mod servers and try to find me a ½ dozen (out of several hundred) that you can *actually go on and *play without out being slapped or put to sleep when an admin is present.

And by play I simply mean:

\connect XX.XXX.XXX.XXX

Join game

Start fighting



True “FFA” servers are as common as “Holocron” game type servers, oh sure 75% of the servers are running in the FFA game type but don’t you dare try to actually play FFA on an admin mod one.

Slapped.
Sleep.
Bunny.
Choked.


And like Ronin_Medjai said, while I can sing the praises of your coding ability all day, the fact remains what you provide to the public is nothing more than a glorified client side hack that people abuse to gain the upper hand when they encounter an opponent they are unable to kill on their own.

While this is good advice, I find I get frustrated because I have to try several FFA servers before I can find an actual game of FFA. It's just disappointing, that's all...

BTW, it was a hell of a lot of hard work. MarS code was just a base and a lot of it has been changed. It's not some minor updates. As for the RPG Mod, lets talk about that shall we?

- server only commands
npcspawn - spawn a npc //taken from JediMod
npcremove - remove a npc //taken from JediMod
rename - rename client and lock his (client wont b able to change) //taken from VA
silence - silence a client //taken from VA
unsilence - unsilence a client //taken from VA
freeze - freeze client in admin_fanim animation //taken from OmNimod
unfreeze - unfreeze client //taken from OmNiMod

- admins commands
admins can use all severonly commands except that they have to put a 'a' before the command
examples : afreeze achangemusic arename
in addition they can use these command as the server
amap - change map //spinoff of JA Mod command
akick - kick someone //taken from VA
alogin - login has admin //taken from VA

- client commands
whosadmin - display who are the admins //taken from JA Mod
asay - speak to admin only //taken from VA
dualblade - change to saber staff //taken from JediMod
dualsaber - change to 2 sabers //taken from JediMod

shop - open shoping UI with target note u must be directly in front of another player to use this
transaction - open 'money exchange' UI with target note u must be directly in front of another player to use this //taken from OmNImod
- Cvars

*admin related*

admin_password default = ""
- password for admins login ("" = disabled)
//taken from VA

admin_fanim default = not sure yet
- from 0 to 1080
- anim num for freeze and afreeze commands
//taken from OmNimod

admin_loginmsg default = "^3With great power come great responsability^7"
- message to print to admins once login
//taken from JA Mod

admin_disablecmd defaul = ""
- 'server only' commans u DONT let your admins do
"" = all server only command allowed
example : "amap handofgod empty" = then your admins CANT do those 3 commands
//taken from JA Mod

rpg_allowextsaber default = 1
0 - disable dualblade & dualsaber
1 - allow dualblade & dualsaber
// Taken from Jedi Mod

rpg_allownpc default = 2
0 - disable all form of npc
1 - allow npc only by server(and admin) commands
//Taken from JediMod, command name ganked from me


So there you have it...talk about originality and code adjustments...I give the cut and paste award to you!!
This is the last of the flaming for I think it is pointless. So say what ya gotta say, but I will ask an admin to close the thread.

I remember a thread here from about 10 or so months ago where we posted the ip's and admin names of bad servers. You know what that was? Helping a community. We were looking out for each other. This thread? Whining about a choice in gametype and a large number of lamers? Pointless. Instead of bitching about it freakin do something about it. Don't play on an adminmod/JAMod server, warn us about the lamer. Whatever is constructive and you feel may help you or all of us out.

Shock: Your idea for a filter is GREAT. Now get off your ass and code it if you feel so strongly about it.

I know for a fact ZeroCool spends his nights constantly tweaking his mod to make it the best damn mod out there. Dont you dare try and trivialize all the hard work he's put into it.

If you have some construtcive critisim, I'm sure ChosenOne would love to hear it... but if you are just going to be bitching and moaning, the don't use the JA MOD, you're not mature enough for it.

Have you made MODs that are half as popular as JA? If not, I think you should shut your hole. There is not much that I despise more than petty whining bitches.

We're all lucky chosen one released it.

I hope you not suggesting that just because someone hasn't also created a mod, that their opinions on it aren't valid...

Bottom line is your mod is used no differently than a client side hack by the 90% of the admins who run it.

And equating “popularity” with “helping the community” is just plain BS.

Even if you took the total number of downloads of these mods and multiplied it by 90000 it still would not be ½ of the total # of OGC downloads and I’m pretty sure the Counter-Strike community wishes that little file was not as popular as it was.


Your mod may not have been intended to be a hack but that’s how it is used and you guys simply turn the other cheek because having the spotlight on your work is an ego boost.

I suppose this is the same quandry that prescription drug manufacturers may have. Drugs are manufactured to help people, yet a few of these people can abuse medication and do harm to themselves or others. Does this stop people from making medicine? No.

Same with us. There are responsible admins out there who use JA Mod's features with maturity. So long as those guys exist and appreciate the work that goes into it, ZeroCool will keep on putting forth the effort into perfecting the mod (hopefully ).

Please do us a favor, Unnamed. Stop playing on Adminmod/JAMod servers if you hate them so much. And don't you dare bring up this whole "it's hurting the community" bullsh*t. I've not read one positive thing from you this entire thread. People playing with code and trying to make useful tools helps a community. Pitching fits on messageboards doesn't. EOF.

True “FFA” servers are as common as “Holocron” game type servers, oh sure 75% of the servers are running in the FFA game type but don’t you dare try to actually play FFA on an admin mod one.

... You say WE'RE out of touch?

I've never been kicked from a server. Ever. I've never been bunnied. Ever. I don't know what you're going on about, but this doesn't happen to me. And I don't sit around playing with emotes. I "play" as you would put it. I've seen a few of those servers where they don't play... But you know what? That's why they have a disconnect button. And I used it, and I went and I got on a different server and I "played".

Better yet, if this community is so horrible, go play a different game. The loss of your attitude is no loss at all...

Not going any where, ban me for speaking my mind (yet keep ignoring the ****smoker comment from the guy supporting you) if you want, but I say these mods are garbage and only serve to boost the egos of noob fanboys.

I can't help but find it ironic that you people who cry "lamer" and preach the praises of the punishment features in these mods are the first ones to spew vulgarity and insults at people.


And as for the guy who says he's never been kicked?

No offense dude but chances are you're not a very good player.
Ask any vet/competitive player and you will hear the same thing.

/am noobs don't grasp that there is a world outside of their little emote a thon servers and when an actual player does set foot on their server and tears them up, it's sleep time for the "lamer/Force whore".

Here you go guys, perfect example of why I am so anti admin mod and why I think your mods are nothing more than glorified client side hacks and harming the community by driving people away.

Down load this map (need it to watch demo).

Jedi Council (version 3, new one)

http://www.orderofthejedi.org/module...=getit&lid=310


I want you to pay close attention to what is going on in here.

I went in and never said a single word, never broke a single rule.
All I did was connect and jump in on a little FFA action that was going on.

A few minutes into the match the admin decides he won’t be out scored so out come your punishment features.

This continues for several minutes but being a very determined person I continue to play and kill this idiot over and over.

When this demo starts the FFA has pretty much come to a halt and the admin and his buddies are having a swell time abusing the admin functions.
I’m just trying to take out anything that moves before he makes me explode, by this time he had bound all these functions to a key with my name.


*Ability is what got me punished.
I had it, they did not.

Frustrated they resorted to your mod as most admins do.

Now I know what you are saying, this is just one bad server right?

Nope.
This is the treatment skilled players get when we hit these admin mod servers.
Most people who frequent them are total noobs and the second some one comes along who is not one, out comes the mod punishments.

Please do download and watch this, if after all of this you still support admin mods and think they “help the community” I really do feel sorry for you.

Demo (small download, just make sure you get the map first)

Let's see

I joined an FFA server. (Yes I still play JK2 sometimes, contrary to the popular belief).

Wow, what is that? 10 out of 12 people were standing in one place spinning around, performing animations. Fine. I come with my saber open and watch them. Note that this is no-force, saber only server. Comes the admin and yells at me that I have an open saber. I look at her and say nothing. Fine, she empowers herself and pushes me over the ledge. I go to spectator mode, waiting for a bit of real action. Finally, duels. But guess what? The admin and the cronies play against other decent people with empower on. So good, it's a no-force, saber-only server and they have grip level 3 and push level3 and of course. No wonder that they abuse the other people and boast with their "abilities".

This happened on at least 15 out of 20 FFA servers that I visited.
Talk about good community. All these servers were running JAM.

That is just how it is on most admin mod servers man.

These mods are basically driving the nail in the coffin of the "playing" community.

No longer is connecting to a server and playing without being screwed with an option.

And if publicly "outing" the behavior of the hypocrites that abuse these mods is considered as harmful to this part of the community then all I have to say is burn baby burn.

Woah, woah, let's not rail on ASk or Code (the coder for RPGmod), they've both done things for the JK2 community that has pushed the barrier for all the other mods.

ASk is the one who came up with a gla merger (which would allow us to do new player animations if Raven ever gets around to giving us the correct animation skeleton).

Code is the one who has proven that multiple .gla files can run in MP at the same time. Now, I can't talk about how he proved it as it would ruin the surprise.

It sucks you 2 had such bad experiences. I'll say it again. Don't play on a JA Mod server. If all these admins are screwing it up for the rest of us then why do you keep going there? Oh. You need to give your daily rant on admins and fanboys. My bad. Keep going then and please, keep posting here about how much you hate the whole situation.

I never said flaming the bad admins was a bad thing. The community needs to get rid of the bad apples in its bunch. My statement about hurting the community earlier was directed towards this aimless flaming you're doing. My point is instead of crying about it, do something about it. Put your money where your mouth is, ace.

Great idea.
How bout I come to your little Academy and show you and your students how real competitive skilled players play.

This way when they venture out into the world of public servers as players, or in some cases admins, they will no longer fear that which they have *never seen.

That is unless you are afraid your little Padawans might actually see there is a world beyond /ambow and that people actually do still play this game as it was intended.

Our little school is open to all. Keep in mind we primarily focus on dueling technique right now. If all you're going to do is try to demeans us or try to 'pwn' us or whatever it is you nutty clan folks like to do then save yourself the time and don't apply.

However if you're looking to improve your game or help others improve theirs you're welcome aboard.

Howdy...I decided to check back here to see how all you are doing? Looks like pretty good eh? Anyways, I didnt mean the animations are "mine" or "Omnimods" or whatever, and yes they do all come in anims.h but the names for some of them are completely identical. So if you are doing all the code from scratch to make the commands like "duel sabers" and stuff than great...more power to ya. As for Jedi Academy Mod, I am releasing a new version this month so you'll all have more to flame me on. Have a nice day

I think the main problem with JA and VA is what some call its best feature and thats server-side. I like the idea of if you dont like a cetain mod just dont DL it and you cant play on that type of server without the mod this keeps people seperated into their categories that they need to be. VA and JA are just base JKO with emotes and Admin Commands which JKO doesnt Need. Its a Game not a place to have discussions if you dont want to shoot something or kill,but this mod allows people to 'torture' people who dont play by THIER rules and I follow the Basic Rules if its an RPG Server I RP if its CTF I capture the Flag if its a Free for All Gametype that means Anything Goes! If you want to Duel go play Duelers Mod or something JA and VA are ruining base JKO which quite frankly a lot of people like. Now what we should do instead of posting IPS of Bad Servers is post IPs of good ones with peeps who dont abuse admin and stuff that way the ones who like to play can do so without being lamed by some n00b who sux and has to use admin to win. Anyone with me on this?
